A Gale and Marine Disaster. - The wind has been blowing strongly from the northwest for the past 24 hours, and fear is entertained for the safety of vessels out. The schooner E. K. Bruce, which cleared from this port last night for Toledo with railroad iron, had her mainmast and jib split in the gale, and was driven on to the rocks near the shore a mile and a half above the Oswego harbor. The vessel is in a perilous situation as she now lies exposed to the heavy sea. The Captain, we understand, deserted the vessel a few days before she sailed. She is owned by Wm. Buckley, of Buffalo.
