"By the steamer JAMES MADISON; which arrived at our port yesterday from Chicago, we learn from Capt. McFayden, that during the squall of saturday last, the schooner TROY, loaded with wheat, is supposed to be lost 55 miles south of Manitou Isle, and about nine miles from the Michigan shore. Two vessels were capsized, and their masts are sticking above the water between Milwaukee and Racine. Some small vessels were lost bound from Michigan City to Milwaukee, laden with produce for this port.
