THE LATE GALE ON LAKE ONTARIO. - We learn from the Watertown Eagle and Standard of the 18th ult., that on Wednesday preceding, the Robert Bruce, a small schooner, owned in Henderson, Jefferson county, left Kingston, U.C. for some port up the Bay of Quinte, in ballast; was wrecked, and all on board lost - Benjamin Chandler, commander and part owner, and a seaman, name not known, besides Elias Everett, of Watertown, passenger. On Saturday night following, the wreck drifted on to Henderson Point, and the coat of Mr. Everett, hanging to a nail with his wallet containing $719, was recovered.

The Medora, owned in Oswego, up from the lake, laden with wheat and walnuts, went ashore near the mouth of Big Sandy Creek - all hands lost. The bodies of a man and woman were taken from the cabin.
