STORM ON LAKE MICHIGAN.---The Chicago American of Oct. 21st. says "A violent wind commenced blowing on the night of Thursday last, and raged during the three following days into the severest storm that we have had this season. The MADISON left here that night, but returned on Saturday night, after getting as far as Milwaukee, where she lost or broke her only remaining anchor - she having left her other one at Skilagee, on her last trip up. She starts again today. The ship MILWAUKEE, we learn is ashore up north, near Little Fort, forty or fifty miles. It is reported the NEW ENGLAND in crossing Saginaw Bay lost one of her wheels. It is also reported that five or six vessels are ashore between this and Michigan City - The VIRGINIA, Brig JOHN KENZIE, WHITE PIGEON, &c. It is now quite calm again."
A letter from the Post-Master at Michigan City dated 19th.inst states that the gale the night previous landed the JOHN KENZIE, VIRGINIA, and WHITE PIGEON high and dry on the beach. Of the several vessels lying at anchor, all but the three named, hoisted sail and stood off when the wind changed from south to north
