During the gale which occurred on the 14th and 15th inst. , the schooner New York, of this port, owned by Messrs. Bronson and Crocker, was lost, and all on board probably perished. She was commanded by Captain George Carlisle, who is said to have been an excellent seaman and a worthy man, and who has left a family in this village, which depended on his industry for support.

The crew it is supposed, consisted of 6 persons, whose names we have not learned. She was freighted with staves, and was bound for French Creek from the Welland Canal. The wreck of the New York went ashore near Long Point on the Canada shore on the 15th.

We have a letter from Mr. Rose of Marysburgh, saying that the wreck of the above named schooner came ashore in their harbour on the 15th inst. Two bodies have been found; all the crew must have perished; part of the cargo (staves), and the rigging of the vessel have been saved. We shall give Mr. Rose's account in our next.
