It is now believed beyond a doubt that the schr. RADIENT, which cleared from Toledo, for Oswego on the 18th. ult., and has not been heard since, has gone down with all on board. She probably foundered in the severe gale on Lake Erie which commenced soon after her departure. The RADIENT was a fine new vessel, but not of the largest class, valued at about $10,000, and insured for $7,500 in the Northwestern. She had on a cargo of wheat, consigned to Rawson & Co., and Ames & Sloan, of this city, which was insured. Among the crew were:
Capt. Carey, from Clayton, who leaves a wife and 4 children. James Barrett of Oswego, leaves a wife and 2 children. Philander Lee, of Oswego, leaves a wife and 1 child. Adam Plenderieth, of Oswego, leaves a wife and 1 child. - Oswego Pal., Sat.
