MARINE DISASTERS.---The Chicago Journal of the 26th. ult. learns that the schooner JOHN LILLIE, Capt. Keaho, capsized during the recent blow, when between Grand Traverse and the North Manitou. The Indians first brought the news over to the Manitou's, who reported that they found eight dead bodies. The LILLIE had on board 12 or 15 persons, passengers and crew--light--and was proceeding up the lake for a load of bark, shingles, &c.

SCHOONER JOHN LILLIE.- It appears that although the JOHN LILLIE went ashore at the Sleeping Bear Island (sic), all hands are safe. The vessel it is thought will be got off without difficulty.
