BRIG CASTALIA.---This vessel has now been out from Southport thirty days, and nothing has been heard from her. She was loaded with wheat for D.N. Barney & Co., of this city, and there is every reason to fear that she has foundered in the gale which proved so fatal to the OUTWARD BOUND, and that all hands have been lost. The CASTALIA was a new and staunch vessel, and was owned in Sandusky.

We learn from Capt. Rossman of the steamer WAYNE, that the brig CASTALIA, reported as lost in the Commercial of Saturday, was passed at Cunninghams Island on Thursday morning last, all right.
