From Lake Superior--Green Bay, Dec. 20 -- Two gentlemen, with the mail carrier and mail, came through yesterday to this place. They found snow two and three feet deep around the head waters of the Menominee.
      During the late gales the propellers INDEPENDENCE and NAPOLEON were driven on shore near Eagle Harbor, and it is supposed will be totally lost.
