      DISASTERS. -- As shown by our dispatches printed yesterday and this morning, there have been numerous additional disasters within a few days, and the probabilities are that more that have already occurred are yet to be learned of. Besides these new disasters, it is ascertained that the numerous vessels, stranded on the east shore of this lake, and below, for some time past, are faring very badly, and will prove total losses. Among those are the schooners CORAL, MARY, W. BATES, FLORA, etc., etc.
      The schooner J. G. McGRATH, which foundered on Monday morning, is in deep water, and wholly beyond recovery. The schooner M. C. CAMERON, unless another storm catches her, can be recovered. The scow FAITH has gone to pieces. The prospect for rescuing the steambarge JACQUES CARTIER and tug HI SMITH, are not at all encouraging. The H. D. MOORE and other craft just stranded on the east shore of this lake may be recovered if operations are immediately commenced to that end. The SLIGO recently ashore on St. Helena, is not badly damaged.
