Loss of the Maid of the Mist. - The little steamer, so aptly named, The Maid of the Mist, and which has played a gallant part in showing up the Falls, to thousands of visitors here, has disappeared. She was the first steam vessel to tempt the storm and wave, in the very "hell of waters" in Niagara river, and many of our readers have trod her quivering deck, as her elfin hull rose and fell in the mad tide.

It is supposed trhat she sunk from the effects of the snow, which had gathered in large masses upon her decks. - She was owned by the Niagara Falls Association, and the loss is from $5 to $7,000 - no insurance.
