p.2 Loss of a Schooner And Crew On Lake Ontario - We learn from Capt. P.B. Wilder, of the Canada Express, that on Sunday afternoon last a top-sail schooner was seen to be sinking between Long Point and Oswego. Her condition being discovered by the master of another schooner, he immediately made for her, but before reaching the sinking vessel, it had utterly disappeared. Two men were seen struggling in the water, and a rope was hastily thrown to one of them, but he appeared entirely benumbed and almost immediately went down. The other was caught by his jacket with a boat-hook, but it tore out, and he too went down. Thus all on board must have perished, as no other persons were discovered above the water. It is not yet known where the vessel was from, but it is supposed she was from Oswego. [Rochester Democrat]

For Toronto and Hamilton - The well known Steamer Magnet, Henry D. Twohy, Commander, will leave Bowen's Wharf, Kingston, for Toronto and Hamilton, calling at Cobourg, Port Hope, and Port Darlington (weather permitting) every Tuesday and Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

For passage or freight apply at the office on the wharf, or to the purser on board.

Kingston, April 13th, 1854.
