WRECK OF A SCHOONER. - During the storm of Friday, a schooner, whose name we were unable to learn, was wrecked on the beach a short distant west of Charlotte. She had no cargo and was in ballast with sand. By the violence of the wind and waves the vessel was thrown high up on the shore. No lives were lost. So says the Rochester Democrat.
