Gale on Lake Ontario.
(We take the following dispatch from the Transcript bulletin.)
By the House Line
Rochester, May 6.
There was a tremendous gale last night from the north, on Lake Ontario. The schooner Vincennes, of Sandusky, bound down, went ashore just east of the mouth of Genesee river, and is a total wreck. The cargo consisted of one thousand and fifty bbls. of flour; three thousand bushels of wheat, and a few casks of ashes.
A small schooner loaded with lumber, name no known, was also lost at the same place. Crews all saved.
The steamer Niagara, from Oswego, attempted to get into this harbor, but did not succeed, and went up the Lake.
