Marine Intelligence. - The Telegraph of yesterday, says the Chicago democrat of Oct. 4th. Brought the news of the steamer NILE being ashore at Milwaukee, another evidence of the want of a suitable harbor at that place, and the necessity of an appropriation by Congress.
The brig ANN WINSLOW is ashore near Racine, and has three feet of water in her hold.
The KEY STONE STATE was out in the storm, and some fears are entertained for her safety. She is, however, a staunch boat, commanded by a prudent and skillful seaman, Captain Stone. She had not reached Milwaukee at 3 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, twenty-six hours from the time of her leaving this port. It is thought that Capt. Stone made for the Michigan shore.
The steamer St. LOUIS and the propeller ONEIDA were also out in the gale, and fears are entertained for their safety.
The steamer OREGON, having broken her rudder, was at anchor off Sheboygan when the gale came on. It is feared she has suffered from its severity.
