Chicago.---Captain John Prindiville received a dispatch from the captain of the propeller PACIFIC, in which he says the steamer went on the beach at a point about thirty miles west of White Fish Point, on Lake Superior. The captain reports that the vessel is pretty hard on, but has no apprehension of her pounding to pieces unless the wind and sea heightens. The propeller PACIFIC is insured in the Buffalo hull pool for $15,000. She was lumber laden for a Lake Michigan port.
