Disaster. - About 8 o'clock on Tuesday evening last, the schooner Lucinda belonging to Smith & Merrick, was capsized in a squall near the mouth of the river St. Lawrence, the Capt. and crew, 5 or 6 in number and one passenger got upon the side of the vessel, in which perilous condition they were found and taken off the next morning about 9 o'clock by Capt. Leslie of the schr. Hercules. The H. took the Lucinda in tow until about 2 o'clock the next night, when the gale increased so that they were obliged to abandon her near Charity shoals about 4 miles west of the head of Grenadier island, where she will probably go on shore.

During the day of Wednesday and while the Hercules had the Lucinda in tow, the Canada steamboat Alciope, Capt. McKenzie, came within a cable's length of the schooners and was bailed several times by the people on board the Hercules, but the Captain of the Alciope after viewing them a short time, sheerd off and left them. This conduct of Capt. McKenzie, to say the least of, is rather unaccountable. - Sackets Harbor Gazette.
