A despatch from Oswego this forenoon states that the schr. HENRY FOLGER has stranded on Long Pt. at the head of Lake Ontario, and all the crew, numbering 8 men are lost. The vessel will also prove a total wreck. The FOLGER was commanded by Capt. James McDonald of Clayton, who has many friends in this city. The FOLGER put in this port last week with her sails all split, having been out in the gale and obliged to run down past Port Colborne as she could not make that port. She was owned by Folger Bros. of Cape Vincent, and is valued at $12,000 and insured for $10,000 in the Aetna. The place where she stranded is one of the worst on Lake Ontario.
