THE SOUTHEASTER. - The storm from the southeast, on Thursday, was severely felt along the west shore. The lake is said to have been quite as rough as it was on the east shore during the gale on Monday.
      The schooner NAPOLEON reached here yesterday with the loss of her deck load of lumber, which was washed overboard.
      The scow R. HAYES, bound from White Lake to this city with lumber, hove to off Fox Point on Thursday night, and while lying thus the waves made clean breaches over her, sweeping off her deck load, and for a long time threatening death to all on board. She came out all right, however, and reached port yesterday morning. - Milwaukee Sentinel.
