DISASTER AND LOSS OF LIFE. -- The Detroit Free Press says the schooner J. S. NEWHOUSE, of Chicago, Capt. Spense, was caught in the terrific gale which swept over the lakes on Monday and Tuesday last, near Presque Isle, and had her fore-boom snapped, her jib-boom carried away, and mainsail split. A heavy sea struck the vessel, sweeping the deck, and washing overboard Capt. Spense and three of the crew. The latter were brought back by the returning wave, and managed to get on board, but Capt. Spense was lost. He leaves a wife and four children in Cleveland.
