PORTER came in this morning having lost one of her men overboard and another being badly injured. The missing man was a wheelsman named Louis Larson of Milwaukee, who was washed overboard while at his post. His mate at the wheel named Thornsold Kustar was abdly injured and is now in the Marine Hospital. The schooner suffered severly in the blow and lost her topsail and foreboom. The crew report that the worst of the storm when she received the damage was off Windmill Pt. Several vessels can be seen from here driven with the storm. A large number are in shelter here.
