TWO MEN LOST - During the passage of the schooner ARCTURUS from Buffalo to Chicago, says the Milwaukee Sentinel, two men, Orlando Wariner, of Wisconsin, and Michael Broom of Philadelphia, were lost overboard. The accident occurred in Lake Michigan, during a severe squall on Monday last, and though the boats were lowered, and every exertion made to save them, they sunk before they could be reached.
