LOSS OF THE SCOW GLOBE WITH ALL ON BOARD. - By a letter from Mr. F.B. Walling of Newark, Michigan, to the firm of C.C. Wallin & Sons, of this city, we learn that the scow GLOBE was lost on the Eastern shore of the Lake, between the night of the 4th and the morning of the 6th inst., with all on board, viz: Capt. Olso and one seaman, a German family consisting of a man and wife and two children, of Chicago, and a man, name and residence unknown. The scow was loaded with lumber and leather, the latter from the tannery of Wallin & Sons. The GLOBE was bound from the mouth of the Kalamazoo to Chicago.
From another source we learn that there were fifteen passengers beside the crew on the ill-fated scow. Portions of the wreck and cargo had come ashore near the Holland settlement, but no bodies had been recovered up to the 17th, inst. = Chicago Press & Tribune.
