Marine Disasters- The Detroit papers give the following further disasters of the late gale:
"All reports concur in representing the late gales on the Upper Lakes as one of remarkable violence. Accounts of its effects continue to reach us. So far, we are happy to state, that no news has transpired of any disaster attended with loss of life.
The brig MOHEGAN was caught by the gale at Richmondville, a small place on Lake Huron, and she was unable to get away. She was somewhat damaged by being pounded against the rocks.
The above disasters were all on Lake Huron.
