SERIOUS DISASTER - The schooner Virginia, of Oswego, bound down with a cargo of corn, ran on a reef known as Hen and Chickens, in the upper end of Lake Erie, on Thursday evening. Her captain arrived here yesterday morning, and has chartered the tug Red Eric, with a steam-pump; also, the scow L. B. Goldsmith, which left in the afternoon for the scene of the disaster. It is thought that, with favorable weather, she may be got off. Her cargo is fully insured. We did not learn whether vessel was insured or not.
