The Advertiser of this morning says that the vessel seen by the passengers on the WESTERN WORLD on Friday, and which they supposed to have foundered, proves to be the barque UTICA, a lower laker. She was loaded with wheat from Cleveland for Oswego, and did not go down. She lost her masts overboard, and drifted about until the crew were picked off by a vessel or steamer, we did not learn which, The captain was in town last evening to procure a tug to go after her.
