WRECKS ON THE LAKES.
      Several Disasters Reported on the Upper Lakes, But None Happen near Buffalo.
The raging storm of snow, wind and rain which struck Buffalo early yesterday morning had a bad effect on vessel on the upper lakes. No disasters are reported near this beach. At Sand beach a terrific sea struck the OTEGO broadside and smashed in her port rail into the engine room. Thomas M. Fisher, the mate, of Marine City, was instantly killed.
The schooner MAGRUDER was driven ashore. On Saginaw Bay yesterday morning the wheel of the steamer ROSEDALE got away from the mate and wheelsman. The latter was instantly killed. He was Thomas M. Rowland, every spoke of the wheel was broken. The barge C. H. WEEKS, lumber laden, broke away off Sanilac and went ashore. The crew was rescued. The wreck went to pieces. The barge MONITOR while being towed to Port Huron struck the Corsica Shoal and filled. Part of the deck load was lost. The ANNIE YOUNG ran into the P. S. MARSH near Port Colborne and carried away her jibboom, headgear, rail and stanchions. The steambarge COLWELL lost her foremast on the bay. Two miles above Lexington the barge LADY FRANKLIN went ashore. The crew was saved. On Saginaw Bay yesterday morning the air pump of the CHEMUNG burst. The CHEMUNG drifted into the trough of the sea and shifted her cargo. The steamer arrived at Port Huron almost on her beam ends.
