DISASTERS ON THE UPPER LAKES. - We learn by Capt. Hubbard, of the schooner CLEVELAND, which arrived on Sunday from Chicago, that several schooners have been lost during the boisterous weather, which has prevailed for several days past. The ARIADNE went ashore off the mouth of St. Joseph river - hands all safe. The LAFAYETTE was driven on a reef of rocks off the point at Mackinac, hands all saved. The St. LOUIS capsized during the violent gale which occurred last Friday; other vessels happening luckily to be in sight, the crew were picked up.
