      We are informed this morning that the schooner CHIEF JUSTICE MARSHALL, with a cargo of staves, left Erie last Saturday (8/15) for this port, and has not been heard from since. It is supposed that she was driven up the lake by the northeaster, which came on after she sailed, or that, possibly, she may have capsized.
