MARINE.---The schooner TWIN BROTHERS, loaded with lumber, grounded between the
Government piers at Milwaukee, during the gale on Friday last, and was pounding pretty hard the last heard from.
The schooner HENRY CLAY, loaded with lumber, missed the harbor entrance, and ran hard aground on the beach a few rods north of the piers.
