Detroit, Sept. 11. -- The storm of Thursday night was severely felt on the lake, and quite a number of disasters to shipping are reported.
The tug MAYFLOWER lost her tow of three barges on Lake Huron, they were loaded with lumber, and water-logged when last seen; the barge DREADNOUGHT was towed into St. Clair River, and soon after, sunk; the schooner L. J. FARWELL, with a cargo of wheat, ran into the Grand Trunk Railway Dock and sunk, decks under, cargo insured; at Crawford's Quarry heavy seas carried away a portion of the dock.
