We gather from our exchanges the following summary of the disasters of the late northeast gale.
The brig ST. LOUIS 1st, is reported ashore near Long Point, Canada, and the brig REBECCA, Capt. Allen, with a full cargo of flour from Detroit, is beached above Point Abino. The schooner BUGBEE, Tilton master, is reported ashore on the south shore of the lake.

      The Brig REBECCA, Capt. Allen, was driven ashore on the upper side of Point Abino, on Wednesday night. She had on a cargo of flour and wheat consigned to A.R. Cobb & Co. and M. Kingman. Capt. Allen wrote down yesterday afternoon that if the wind continues as it was, the brig would probably be a total loss.

      The BUNKER HILL came in from the REBECCA yesterday afternoon. We learn that she has succeeded in saving all the flour (with the exception of a few barrels) which mounted to 2,150 barrels in all, the rigging, one anchor, &c. The wheat run through the bottom when the vessel bilged, and 12 bbls. potash they were unable to get at. The wreck has been sold to Capt. Norman, for a small sum, and will be broken up.
      Great praise is due to Capt. Stannard and his crew, for their exertions in saving the property on board the wreck.
