MARINE DISASTER - PROPELLER GLOBE SUNK - The propeller GLOBE left here last night for the west, heavily laden with merchandise. After proceeding some ten or twelve miles on her journey, she sprung a leak and was with difficulty kept afloat until the steamer ATLANTIC, bound west, came along side, when she was towed near Point Abino, where she sank in 16 feet of water. No lives were lost. The value of the merchandise on board is variously estimated, but was certainly not less than $100,000, pretty much all of which, we understand, is insured in New York. The propeller is owned by Wm. B. Dix & Co. and Spencer Moores of Maumee, and is insured for $15,000----$5,000 of which was taken by the Buffalo Mutual, $5,000 by the Columbus Co., and $5,000 by the North Western Co. The
cause of the disaster has not been ascertained. By some it is thought that one of her buckets got out of order and wore a hole through her stern, but this is mere surmise. Captain Dorr, of the Buffalo Mutual left here about noon with the propeller MANHATTAN for the purpose of raising the GLOBE and removing her cargo.

Marine Disasters. - The propeller GLOBE, which cleared from this port yesterday, sprung a leak from after rounding the lighthouse, and in spite of the untiring efforts of the crew, sunk last evening off Port Albino in sixteen feet water. Her cargo is valued at $300,000, and will be a total loss. We understand that the boat is insured in the North Western Company, and the cargo by different companies in this city and Detroit. The crew were all saved. Buff. Rep. 26

      PROPELLER GLOBE. - The propeller MANHATTAN brought into this port two loads of the merchandise with which the GLOBE was freighted, and has returned for the third. Captains Dorr, Davison, and Gardner, of the Buffalo Mutual, Columbus and North Western Insurance Companies are in the vicinity of the wreck, and are doing all they can to save the property. We understand that those interested have sent to New York for a set of India Rubber "Camel Backs" with which it is proposed to raise the GLOBE.
