Chicago, Nov. 19. -- Friday night and Saturday morning a severe gale from the eastward prevailed at this part of the lake. The schooner REINDEER, with a cargo of brick, went ashore Saturday morning, half a mile north of the piers, probably a total loss. She was owned by Capt. Gillmore and Benj. Ohelps of Milwaukee.
      The schooner St. Lawrence is ashore off Grosse Point, but being light, she will probably be got off
      The schooner Wm. A. Small, Hooker, is on the beach just south of the pier.
