SCHOONER CASCADE. -- The gale we have had, for several days past, from Lake Erie, Michigan, and Superior, have extended to Lake Ontario. Several crafts have put into Kingston, Canada, with partial damage -- among them the CASCADE, bound from Oswego to Chicago with a cargo of railroad iron. Off Long Point, Lake Ontario, she lost her sails, both top-masts, and head of foremast, and was otherwise damaged. She has partially repaired her damages, and proceeded on her voayage.
