Dreadful Shipwreck. - The schr. Apellona, W. Merritt, master, sailed from Oswego the 14th inst. bound to Genesee. About half past 9 p. m. same day, 16 miles from land, a heavy squall arose from the west, and the vessel was struck by lightning, which knocked down the master and all the crew, and injured the vessel so much that she sunk in fifteen minutes after she was struck. Having prepared the boat five in number got in, and about an hour before day, landed 15 miles below Oswego. The master was very much injured in his sight and hearing, but is fast recovering.
