The storm of Tuesday night proved disastrous to the shipping on Lake Erie. The wind blew a perfect gale, and the air was filled with snow. The following named vessels, bound for this port, were driven ashore: . . . . .
      The schooner MAZEPPA, with a cargo of 17,000 bushels of wheat, in attempting to make our harbor, got on the Erie Basin breakwater. All attempts to pull her off proved unavailing and at dusk last evening her cargo was being thrown overboard. She will probably be got off.
