MARINE DISASTER. - Captain Cochran of the schooner PEARL, says the Oswego Times of the 23rd., instant, "who arrived here yesterday, reports that he boarded a vessel capsized floating on her beam ends, at about 7 o'clock yesterday morning, some 8 miles from shore, off Pultneyville, which he found to be the schooner ANAWAN, with no one to be found about her. Her sails were set, and her boat attached to the vessel. There had been heavy squalls a few hours previous, and Capt. Cochran thinks the Captain and crew, consisting of five men were from all appearances, lost. The ANAWAN was owned by Mr. C. Smith, of this city, and insured, we understand, for $1,300. She cleared light from this port for Presque Isle, Canada, at 8 o'clock on Monday evening.
