The Storm - Perilous Situation of the Schooner J.P. Hale and Crew. - It commenced snowing last night and has continued through the day with but little cessation. The snow has fallen about six inches in depth. The wind has been stiff in the northwest, and is increasing in violence as we go to press, with a heavy sea rolling. A vessel arrived this afternoon reports the schooner "J.P. Hale," with a cargo of wheat from Chicago for this port, ashore two or three miles above the piers, with flag at half mast and men in the rigging. At the hour of going to press we could learn no other particulars of the disaster.
P.S. A life boat has been sent up to the "Hale" to take off the crew. It is said she is ashore about a mile and a half above the city. A large number have gone up to the vessel.
