Chicago, Nov. 19. - A severe storm has been raging on this shore of Lake Michigan since last night and the sea is running very high. In consequence a series of disasters is reported and it is feared there are more to be heard from. While trying to make this port three schooners went on the breakwater. One was the S. ANDERSON, lumber laden, another, the PEORIA, also lumber laden, and the JOHN KELDERHOUSE, light. The ANDERSON and PEORIA were from east shore points and the KELDERHOUSE was on her way to Escanaba for iron ore. All the vessels were taken off the breakwater, but in badly damaged condition.
