Detroit, Nov. 3. - The heavy wind of the last three days, continued in a hurricane last night. Dispatches from Lakes Erie, Michigan and Ontario show that damage to shipping have been numerous and severe. Thursday night, the steam-barge YOUNG HICKORY sprung a leak and sunk off Bar Point, near the mouth of the Detroit River. The engineer, William McAlpin, was drowned. The rest of the crew were saved by the schooner PORTER. The schooners HELEN, NEW HAMPSHIRE, and STARLIGHT were beached near Leamington, Ont. The schooner JANE C. WOODRUFF went ashore last night on the reef near KIngston. The scow FLORA is beached near Grand Haven. The schooner CITY OF TAWAS was beached near St. Joseph last Monday night, and is a total loss. The schooner COLONEL HAYES, of Chicago, went ashore on that beach last night. The steam-barge SWALLOW is ashore near Port Stanley.
