A LAKE VESSEL WRECKED ON THE OCEAN. -- The schooner OWEN BEARSE, which some of our readers will remember as having been noticed at length a few years ago, as one of the "Bearse Fleet" -- was wrecked on the 29th ult., at the Delaware Breakwater, on the Atlantic coast. The O. B. was built at Cleveland for Bearse & Co., and loaded with lumber at this port for Boston, where she was principally owned. She made a very quick run, the quickest ever made from Montreal to Boston, and the vessel, her builders, and her commander received much praise from the press at the latter city. Intended for the West India trade, she was thus employed for about a year, when she was sold to D. Sturgis of Boston, by whom she was owned when wrecked, and was afterwards employed in the coasting trade. She was laden with coal, and bound from Philadelphia to Boston.
