      The Chicago press of the 19th, says the only vessels known to be ashore on Lake Michigan from the effect of the late gale, are the schr. St. ANDREWs, with coal at the Manitous, bark SONORA, with grain at Louse Island, near the entrance to Green Bay, four lumber vessels at Milwaukee, viz: MAGIC, HARRISON, STELLA and PLANET, and the THREE SISTERS, and a small schooner at Calumet. The tug SALVOR has got off the HARRISON, and is now working on the others at MIlwaukee; from thence she will go to the SONORA. The McQUEEN has gone for the St. ANDREW and on her return will probably wait on the THREE SISTERS, with aid.
