The Oswego Journal says:--"Of the vessels which cleared from here on Sunday, we have no tidings, and a great deal of anxiety continues to be felt in regard to them. The brig OXFORD, ashore at Cape Vincent, has on board a cargo of corn, consigned to that port. She has filled, and damaged her corn, but from her position, out of the way of the lake seas, no fears are entertained that the vessel can be materially damaged."
