VESSEL WRECKED.-The schooner SARATOGA, in attempting to make the piers in the heavy weather of Wednesday evening, went on the beach north of the harbor, and being an old vessel, went to pieces rapidly. She was owned by Captain Igo, her master, but he was not on her this trip, being at home sick. She was a fine vessel, and a crack sailer in her day. --- Chicago Democratic Press
