SHIPWRECK ON LAKE ONTARIO. - The Henry Clay, on her first voyage from Oswego to Cleveland in Ohio, was upset in a squall off Niagara on the 20th July, and immediately sunk. She had 600 barrels of salt as cargo; of nine passengers on board - three only were saved; and these solely by the exertions of Capt. Richardson of the steam packet Canada. The passengers of the Canada, by a just and involuntary call upon their feelings have, in a letter to Captain Richardson, expressed their admiration and praise at the perseverance and skill he evinced in rescuing these individuals; which, from the violence of the gale and the roughness of the lake, nothing short of his humane and resolute activity, and that of his brave crew, could have accomplished.
