Marine Disasters- The Detroit papers give the following further disasters of the late gale:
"All reports concur in representing the late gales on the Upper Lakes as one of remarkable violence. Accounts of its effects continue to reach us. So far, we are happy to state, that no news has transpired of any disaster attended with loss of life.
The schooner MARION EAGAN got her centerboard jammed, in such a way that she was unable to work it either up or down. When last heard from, she was waiting for a powerful tug to tow her over the flats.
The above disasters were all on Lake Huron.
