Shipwreck On Lake Erie - The Buffalo Republican says the facts concerning the shipwreck of the Neptune, at Michigan City, are far more terrible than had been reported. Eleven passengers were drowned in the vessel, besides the crew, consisting of eight persons, three of whom perished on board, and five who came ashore with the captain immediately perished of the cold; leaving the captain the sole survivor of twenty persons to tell their fate.
