Oswego. -- The schooner Dundee, which cleared yesterday for Toronto, had her masts sprung in the gale and was driven back, and in entering the harbor ran on to the dock at the steam sawmill, staving in her bow and stern, and sinking the vessel almost immediately.
      The schooner Cuyahoga with wheat from Chicago, ran into the schooner Scotland, which was lying in the channel, carrying away the masts and part of the bulwarks of the latter, besides doing some other damage to the vessel. The Cuyahoga was somewhat damaged and is leaking.
