A DOUBLE DISASTER. -- The scow RADICAL, of Chicago, met with a double disaster on Friday morning last, during thick weather, about ten miles off Shehoygan. First, the schooner DAVID VANCE, downward bound from this port with a cargo of oats, came into her on the starboard bow, breaking several planks above light watermark, and carrying away her jibboom and headgear. Then, while those on board were busily engaged in repairing damages, she was struck by a squall and completely dismasted. The RADICAL was taken into Sheboygan harbor, where she is at present lying. Whether the VANCE sustained damages is not known, though the probabilities are that she did not.
