BRIG COMUMBIA. - The Chicago Press of yesterday says that the brig COLUMBIA, which went ashore at Death's Door, has gone to pieces and is a total wreck, nothing being saved but her rigging, which was brought to that city. She was owned by Jesse Birmingham, of Sturgeon Bay, and was uninsured. She was valued at about $3,000. There were two mortgages held against her by parties in Chicago.
