      The Milwaukee Sentinel reports that the RESOLUTE drifted on shore a little south of the Straight Cut. She was bound from Chicago to Buffalo with flour and corn. The entire cargo was lost, the flour having been washed overboard, and the corn wet, and it was very doubtful whether the vessel could be saved. her hold was full of water and the sea broke over her constantly. There were nine men on board, who were got off with much difficulty. The RESOLUTE is owned by Mr. Frank Church, of Black River, Ohio. The storm was abating somewhat and the was hopes of getting the vessel off.
