We regret, says the Cincinnati Gazette to inform our readers of the loss of the Chippewa, her crew and baggage, in a late gale on Lake Erie. The Chippewa was a Schooner carrying two guns and taken by the gallant Perry from the British. She was sailing from Put in Bay to Detroit, having on board 60 souls, among them three lieutenants, the baggage of two regiments, and a large sum of money, for the 24th United States regiment, all drowned and lost by the staving of the vessel.
Required for His Majesty's Navy, 20,000 Feet of Red Pine, to square from 8 to 14 inches, and not less than 40 feet long.
28th December Naval Yard, Kingston.
