St. Catherines, C.W., Nov. 23d - The following are a few of the vessels frozen in the Welland Canal:

Lively, Oneida Chief, L.J. Lotham, Queen City, Henry Hase, Lucy Blossom, Geo. Douseman, Star of Hope, Titian, Cayuga, Carlton, Beard, Jenny Lind, New York, Wellington, Harvest, St. Paul, Ocean Wave, Tartar, Lewis Wells, Chas. Griswold, Cuba.

Propellers Jefferson, Bay State, Lady of the Lake and Colonist.

There are many vessels besides these frozen in, but are unable to learn their names.

The weather has set in cold, and there is no prospect of navigation resuming.

Detroit, Nov. 24th - The propeller Ogdensburgh arrived from Chicago this afternoon. She reports much ice in the Straits of Mackinac, and she had great difficulty in forcing through.

The schooner John Martin, of Cleveland, is ashore near Presque Isle, a total loss - the crew saved. There is another vessel, name unknown, near the same place probably a total loss.

There are no tidings of the schooner Seaman, which is supposed to be lost on Lake Superior, with all on board. The river boats run with difficulty on account of ice, and navigation is considered about closed.
