Lamentable Occurrence on the Lake.

An occurrence of a very painful nature took place in Mexico Bay on Monday night last by which several lives were lost, how many, we cannot at present ascertain.

A small vessel belonging at Texas in this County, was discovered on Tuesday morning, capsized and drifted on shore about three miles north of Port Ontario, with one dead body lashed on. The vessel has been employed in carrying staves to Oswego and was on her way to that port when the storm commenced on Monday, and her crew with all who may have been on board have perished.

Since the above was in type, we have received further information, that there were three persons on board, viz: Charles A. Doane, of this village, Samuel Loomis and William Case of Texas.

The body of Loomis is the one that was found lashed to the vessel, the others are not yet recovered. Mr. Doane leaves a wife and children and a large circle of relatives and friends in this place to mourn his untimely end.
