      Lakes during 1871, Capt. J.W. Hall

      DISASTERS. - From the number of disasters reported from above it is probable that a heavy squall has recently passed over the Upper Lakes. By a dispatch to Capt. D.P. Dobbins & Son we learn that the schr. MARY E. PEREW has been dismasted in a squall off Milwaukee, and that the schr. WINONA has met with a similar misfortune in the Straits.
