Detroit, Mich. Oct. 20. -- Vessels are beginning to arrive from above. The storm was less severe on Lake Huron than feared. The harbor of refuge at Sand beach has been full of vessels during the past four days. No disasters are reported on Lake Huron. From Frankfort on Lake Michigan comes the tidings of the fatal loss of the schooners. J.H. HARTZELL and HOPE, the former loaded with iron ore and the latter with provisions. The HARTZELL's stewardess perished in the rigging. The rest of the crew have been saved. The HOPE's crew is safe.
      Chicago, Oct. 20. -- Despatches to the Gooderich Line state that one more lady was washed ashore near Holland, Michigan; but before it could be secured under the law it was carried into the lake. The wreckage has been fully identified by the agent of the Company as that of the ALPENA. The schooner AMERICAN, on the Eastern shore during the storm, is missing.
