Wreck at Oswego.--A friend has obligingly furnished us with the following melancholy intelligence.--Monroe Democrat.
Extract of a letter from a gentleman at Oswego to his friend in this city, dated Nov. 29, 1834.
"Last night was a tremendous night, and an unfortunate one here. The schooner Janet, Capt. James King, ran foul of the east pier and bilged; total wreck; the Captain and two hands drowned. She was loaded from the Genesee with 2700 bushels of wheat; value of schooner $5000, ensurance on wheat $1700; owned by Henry Fitzhue [sic], who was also part owner of the Vessel. Capt. King was one of the oldest and most careful captains on the lake."
