Perilous Situation of Men on Board the J.G. Deshler.

Just as we go to press we learn that forty-three farmers who went on board the schooner Deshler, ashore about 9 miles up the lake, this morning, for the purpose of getting off grain, are now in a most perilous situation and unable to get off the vessel. A high sea is running breaking completely over her, and no ordinary boat can live a moment in the surf. A four- horse team has just reached this city for the government life-boat, which has been mounted on wheels and dispatched to the scene of disaster. We await further particulars with painful solicitude for the fate of the men on board.
