Loss of Life on Lake Michigan - By the arrival of the steamer Oregon, from Chicago, we give a few more items of the effects of the storm.

The sloop J.K. Polk, with 7 persons on board, left St. Joseph on Sunday week, for Chicago, with a load of lumber. She has not been heard from since, and is supposed to be lost with all on board.

Capt. Ward, of the steamer Champion, reports visiting the schr. Ocean, of Mackinaw, about 6 miles north of St. Joseph, and two miles from shore. She was a complete wreck, having lost her boat and davies, carried away her mainmast, her sails torn into rags, hatches off and lumber in the hold. There was no person on board, and it is supposed the crew are all lost. She had the appearance of having been capsized and righted again.

Wrecks on Lake Ontario - The brig Algomah is ashore at Port Dalhousie. She had on board 3000 bushels wheat and 800 bbls. flour. She is on the beach and is filled with water. It is feared that she will be a total wreck, and her cargo will be nearly all destroyed. She is owned by Mr. Pardee, in Oswego.

The schr. Victoria, a Canadian vessel, is ashore at the same place, but not in so bad condition. Her freight was light.

As the steamer Lady of the Lake came down from Lewiston yesterday, she saw three vessels on the beach between Lewiston and this port - one at the 30 mile creek. Saturday and Sunday were bad days on the lake. [Rochester Democrat]
