Chicago, August 12. - The propeller Menominee is reported by her captain to have encountered in midlake on Tuesday night a thick cold cloud, which burst on her decks, covering them with snow and slush to a depth of six inches. For five minutes, the atmosphere was like that of winter, but as the steamer was running rapidly she soon came into a warmer temperature. The event is unprecedented here, but the accuracy of the facts is vouched for by the other officers and passengers, and the story corroborated by the thermometric conditions of that night.
