The following Card of Thanks is deserved. The management of the boat, during the storm, was admirable. The escape was truly providential:

Rochester, Oct. 19, 1844.

We, the undersigned, being passengers on board the steamer "Rochester," on her late passage from Oswego to Lewiston, feeling a deep and lasting sense of gratitude to Almighty God, for deliverance from shipwreck and death, during the night of the 18th instant, and to Captain H.N. Throop, his officers and crew, who, with such noble courage and unsurpassed skill, were the instruments of kind Providence, in running to and making a safe harbor at the mouth of the Genesee River, we tender our sincere and heartfelt thanks, and address to them this brief acknowledgement, as a passing memorial of lasting gratitude:
