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.

ON A REEF. - The barque SONORA, of Detroit, bound from Chicago, with a cargo of wheat, ran on a reef at Death's Door, near the entrance to Green Bay, during the gale on the 10th. Her owner received a despatch on Saturday, saying that the tug SALVOR has gone from Chicago to her relief. She was about half full of water, but lying easy.

      The Green Bay Advocate says the Bark SONORA is hard on the reef and full of water. The crew were all saved. She is owned by E.W. Hudson, of Detroit, and had on 15,000 bushels of wheat for Buffalo. It is thought that with a steam pump and tug the SONORA may be got off with the loss of her cargo. A fog was the cause of the accident.

On Sunday morning the Tug SALVOR came into port with the bark SONORA, lately ashore at Louse Island. Her cargo was all gone, except about 1,000 bushels, having been pumped out with the water by two steam pumps which kept her afloat coming up. She was immediately taken to Dolittle & Miller's dry dock, on the North Branch, where she will be repaired. We believe she is owned in Detroit. - Chicago Press.
