MARINE DISASTER. -- The late blow on the Lakes has done very little damage to shipping. Masters of vessels were prepared, and remained in port until the squall subsided. The only loss we have heard of was the going ashore of the schooner CHAMPION at Grand River. She was laden with railroad iron and went ashore on the outside of the pier. She will be got off soon.
