ASHORE ALL ALONG THE LAKES.
      A List Of Vessels Known To Have Suffered In Saturday's Gale.
Chicago, Oct. 16. - The severity of the northwest gale that has swept the Great Lakes for the past 48 hours has not been exceeded during the season of navigation for the past 10 years. The list of wrecks, in proportion to the number of vessels which were out in the gale, is larger, perhaps, than in the history of the latter day marine. That there has been large loss of life now seems certain, but it may be several days before it is known just how many
sailors perished.
      Following is the list of wrecks thus far reported: Yacht ENTERPRISE ashore Lion's Head, Lion's Bay; steamer C.F. CURTIS, schooners ISABEL REID and NELSON HOLLAND, barges SWEEPSTAKE and KNIGHT TEMPLAR ashore, Cheboygan, Mich.; tug ACME foundered Lake Huron; schooner VOLUNTEER stranded Port Austin, Ont.; schooner FALCONER ashore, Lake Ontario; unknown schooner ashore near Manistee; schooner JOHN T. MOTT, sunk Fairport, O.; schooner AMBOY, ashore Buffalo; schooner MONT BLANC, waterlogged, Buffalo; steamer SCHUYLKILL, stranded Bar Point; steamer MARITANA, stranded Elliott Point; schooner IRONTON ashore Bay MIlls, Lake Superior.
      Dispatches from all points along the west shore of Lake Huron and the eastern end of Lake Superior indicate that the storm increased greatly in violence as night came on and at midnight the storm was at its height, but most of the lake fleet had succeeded in reaching shelter.
