DISMASTED.---We just begin to receive accounts of the effect on shipping, at the other end of the lake, of the late severe N.E.gale. Boats arriving yesterday, report the schooner TEXAS---lower laker---at Cunningham's Island entirely dismasted. About twenty other sail sought shelter at the Island, some of which received slight injury, such as loss of flying jibs, top gallant sails &c., &c.

      The Sandusky Clarion of the 16th, speaking of the schooner TEXAS - lower laker - dismasted at the other end of the lake during the late N.E. gale, says it learns that the greater part of her deck freight, consisting of flour, was lost. Another schooner lost her main-topmast, while, we understand, a third was sunk.
