RUMORED LOSS OF EUROPEAN BOUND VESSELS. - The Toledo Blade says that there is a rumor in Toledo that the bark Benson, which cleared from that port May 14th, for Cork, with a cargo of corn, and the schooner Pamlico, which cleared from Chicago a few days later for the same port, were among the lost in the recent storm off the coast of New Brunswick. The pilot left the Pamlico abreast Green Island on her ocean trip, and he brought a letter dated June 13th from Capt. Ed. Stretch to the owner of the vessel, Capt. John Prindiville, of Chicago. The Pamlico had overtaken and passed the Benson from Toledo, also met five ships and three barks that were bound for Great Britain. It adds: Capt. John Prindiville is quite nervous as regards the safety of the Pamlico. He says she must have been on the coast at about the time this disastrous storm occurred, and he is, as a matter of course, without advices. The owners of the Benson are equally in the dark, although they refuse to believe that their goodly ship has gone to the bottom. It is to be hoped that both vessels weathered the gale, for they are the pioneers in a new and important trade, and are deserving of success.
