NEWS FROM THE EAST SHORE OF THIS LAKE:- is to the effect that the schooner AUSTRALIA will be a total loss, but that the MONTPELIER and ELVINA will doubtless be saved. The AMERICA is in some damger of proving a total loss, but there is a chance that she, too, may be rescued. The ALPENA, which left Chicago yesterday, took over another pump, which is to be used on the ELVINA and perhaps others, The H.D. MOORE is lying easy, and will be raised, if she is not up already. All these are at Grand Haven.
      The scow ASA CHILDS, on at Muskegon, had her sails up when the LEM ELLSWORTH left here, and was attempting to back off. She will doubtless be rescued.
