The Fredonia Censor of Monday says that the WHITTLESEY, Capt. A.C. Boggs, while making Dunkirk at 10:00 on Friday last, was driven by a sudden shift of wind upon a ledge of rocks, between the beacon and dummy. She had made inside with wind from the N. E. and was proceeding to change sail when she was struck by a sudden flaw from the eastward, which drove her upon the ledge, where she safely remained, with the loss of rudder only, until Saturday afternoon, when she was got off with the assistance of the stm. INDIAN QUEEN, after some 10 or 15 tons of her cargo had been thrown overboard.
      The WHITTLESEY was owned by Messrs. W.W. Brigham and Capt. Dwight, of Dunkirk, and is insured in this city.
      The Censor also learns that a sloop of Conneaut, and from Buffalo, was beached at Dunkirk, the same night, after following the WHITTLESEY. She was without cargo.
