Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., April 29. -- When making for shelter into Peninsular Harbor, on the north shore of lake Superior, the Canadian steamer GLENGARRY from Kingston to Port Arthur, towing the schooners GASKIN and GLENORA. There was a heavy southwest gale blowing at the time and it is feared the GLENGARRY lost the GLENORA. It is feared the GLENORA did not weather the storm, but has been lost with all hands. The missing boat is owned by Capt. Spinner of Kingston and valued at $12,000.
      LATER: Later intelligence of the GLENORA, reports the vessel ashore near Chicoton with the crew all safe.
