Many of the disasters of the gale were reported in Saturday's "Enquirer," but reports of further mishaps keep coming in. The PAWNEE tow was broken up on Lake Michigan; the schooner HAVANA lost both topmasts; the schooner F. D. EDEN parted her tow-line from the MORLEY, and was somewhat damaged by shipping a tremendous sea; the barge HATTIE, of the MIAMI tow, became water-logged; the schooner A. P. NICHOLS went ashore at Death's Door; the schooner ZACK CHANDLER went ashore near Deer Park.

      A telegram from Deer Park says the schooner CACK CHANDLER is wrecked near Life Saving Station No. 12. One man is drowned.

      Cleveland. Nov. 1. -- Owners of the schooner ZACK CHANDLER are informed that the crew has arrived at Sault Ste. Marie. The tug has been stopped from going to the wreck as there is nothing to save, the old hulk melted away on the beach at Deer Park soon after she struck. Capt. C. E. Bennon says the insurance was $6,750, distributed among the St. Paul, Detroit Fire & Marine, Sun and Northwestern. The cargo of lumber was insured for $12,500 in the Western of Toronto. The freight list was also insured.
