Disaster on the Lake. - The schooner Doviel, laden with 4,000 bushels of wheat, from a Canadian port for Oswego, sprang a leak on Thursday night some thirty miles east of the mouth of the Genesee, and went down. The crew were unable to keep her afloat, and after a fruitless effort to relieve the vessel, they took the small boat and left, reaching Sodus safely Friday morning. The schooner was owned by Wm. Hunter & Co., of Sodus, and was uninsured. The cargo was owned at Oswego, where consigned, and that too was uninsured; so the loss is quite heavy to owners.
