p.2 The schooner mentioned as being ashore at Buffalo on the 4th inst., was the Oneida, laden with 8,000 bushels of wheat, bound for Toledo. She was owned by Capt. W. Allen, who was drowned in her. She was run down by some steamer bound up, and sunk in fifteen minutes. All hands were lost except the cook, who clung to the mast, until he was rescued by the life-boat, having been in a perilous condition 20 hours. Vessel and cargo insured in $12,000.
