Schooner SARATOGA LOST:-- The Oswego times of Monday, says that the schooner SARATOGA, Capt. Joseph Allen, foundered in the lake about twenty miles from that city, Sunday evening about 11 o'clock. She was loaded with 95,000 feet of lumber, consigned to Messrs. Smith & Post. The captain and crew took to the yawlboat, and arrived in Oswego Monday morning between 4 and 5 o'clock. The vessel and lumber will probably be a total loss. The SARATOGA was owned by Capt. Igo, of that city, and was insured.
