VESSELS STRUCK. -- In the severe thunder storm of Tuesday night, says the Chicago Press, the schooner CAIRO was struck by lightning while lying at the ice houses in the South Branch. Her fore topmast and fore boom were shattered, and her fore mast was so badly injured that it will require replacing by a new one. We learn also that the schooner TRANSPORT was also struck by the lightning while lying in Green Bay, loading, shivering her fore topmast.
