SHIPWRECK AT GREEN BAY. -- During the Southeast gale on the 14th, the small schooner ART PALACE, commanded by "Commodore Peg Leg" and used as a floating bagnio (a brothel), anchored off the Cedar River, in Green Bay, but dragged until she struck upon the rock strewn shore, when she filled with water. The craft will probably prove a total loss. The captain and crew of the vessel, the latter consisting of half a dozen "model artistes," succeeded in reaching the shore and were, at last accounts, leading a gipsy life in the woods at Cedar River.
