      . . . . .

      We have to add to the already long list of disasters, the most of which are the result of the late storm. ---------
      The scow BANNER, while lying at anchor opposite the Detroit & Milwaukee dock, on Sunday, had her jibboom broken off by the schooner GERTRUDE, which was passing down in a tow. The BANNER lost an anchor a few days since while at anchor under Long Point.
