Loss of a Schooner and its Crew on Lake Ontario. - We alluded, a few days since, to the washing ashore of the body of a lad, near Pultneyville and stated the suppositions in regard to the identity of the deceased lad and the cause of his death.

We learn that he was the son of Michael Butler of Oakville, C.W., who was owner of the schooner Ardelia, lost with the entire crew, six in number, on Lake Ontario. The vessel sailed from Wellington, with a cargo of peas, and wrecked on her course.

The time and cause of the catastrophe is not known. the following are the names of those on board: Chris Boylan, captain; Wm. Carlisle, Robt. McMullen, Richard Dillon, Wm. Hilton and Thos. Butler. The father of the last named has receovered the remains of his son, and returned with them home. The vessel and cargo were not insured. Loss estimated at $4,000.
