In our Lake Superior News brought by the stmr. METEOR will be noticed the disaster of the schr. THORNTON, which lies sunk in the Sault Canal, laden with iron ore. On the trip preceeding the last this vessel met with a similar disaster near Sailor's Encampment, by getting on the rocks while in tow of a tug, and sank laden with iron ore also. She was gotten up at considerable expense and put in thorough repair, and but recently set out on her second voyage of the season.
