A CRAFT OF OLDEN TIME. - An account is given in the Milwaukee Sentinel of the loss of the schooner Gazelle, of Sheboygan, which in some particulars is incorrect or the early marine records must be slightly astray. The Gazelle was built at Maumee in 1846, and not 1832, and was 103 tons burthen old measurement. She was rebuilt in 1851, and consequently but 21 years have elapsed since she first came into commission. If we remember rightly there have been three vessels of the above name on the lakes, one of those built on Lake Ontario, the other two on Lake Erie. The Gazelle which came out in 1832 hailed from this port for several years, but was wrecked several years since. If our version of the above record is incorrect we of course wish to be placed right in the matter.
