      LOSS OF THE BRIG BELLE - The brig BELLE, Capt. Hall, which sailed from this port on the 26th. ult., says the Chicago Press & Tribune, loaded with 11,300 bushels of corn for Buffalo, when near the Manitous, sprung her foremast and began to leak. An attempt was made to run her to Twin River Point, and thence to Bailey's Harbor, when she went on the rocks near the latter place, and was lost, together with all of her cargo. The cargo was shipped by A.C. Morey, of this city.
