STEAMER LOST. - A dispatch from Port Stanley says the side-wheel steamer RANGER, from Toledo to Montreal, freighted with corn, encountered a southerly gale on Wednesday the 8th. She sprung a leak about 8 miles from Tyrnonnel, during the afternoon. Capt. Gaskin immediately applied his five pumps, which he worked for several hours, when the engineer reported she was sinking. He then headed her for the nearest land, and beached her seven miles west of Port Stanley. The vessel and cargo are insured. - Milwaukee Sentinel, 14th.
