ARRIVAL FROM BUFFALO. -- The schooner " NEW CONNECTICUT," Capt. Burnet, sailed from Buffalo on the 8th instant, freighted with salt and merchandize, and arrived here on the 10th. This is the first trip ever made from Buffalo to Erie in the month of January, and may be considered a perilous experiment. A few hours more would have found her encircled, like the "Frozen Ship," in an impenetrable body of ice and rendered her an equally impressive memento to future adventures. -- Erie Gazette, Jan. 15.
