Full Text

By the GREAT WESTERN which left Chicago on Sunday last, we learn that a large fleet of sail craft on the Upper lake, had a serious time of it during the equinox. Many of them have suffered in sails, spars, and rigging. Among others the Brig ILLINOIS, which was seen at Mackinaw patching up her canvas. The Steamboat CHESAPEAKE was out in the gale. She shipped a sea and lost one of her deck passengers, A. Jach, bound to Illinois.
