GREAT DAMAGE TO SHIPPING.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Oct. 1st - The terrific northwast gale which has raged here for two days continues to do great damage to shipping. It is reported that two large steamers are ashore at Keweenaw Point. The captain of the Schuykill, which arrived from Duluth yesterday morning, says he could not make out who they were, but thought they were the Matoa and Masaba, belonging to the Minnespota company, and valued at $20,000. The steamers cleared from Two Harbors yesterday for Cleveland loaded with iron ore. The point where they are aground is said to be the most dangerous one of any on the whole chain of lakes. From White Fish Point comes the report that a schooner is flying signals of distress. Two tugs have gone to her rescue.
At Shelldrake the barges Carney and Lillie May, of the Nellie Torrent tow, are ashore and total losses. Twenty boats are anchored between here and Iroquois Point and above the encampment several large steamers are awaiting an abatement of the gale.
