ACCIDENT ON LAKE ONTARIO - On Sunday morning, says the Lockport Journal, the schooners FLORA WATSON of Buffalo, loaded with 14,500 bushels of wheat, and HARRIET ROSS of Detroit, soaded with salt and sugar, came in collision near Fort Niagara, breaking in the side of the FLORA WATSON, so that she sank immediately the crew barely escaping with their lives. The bow of the other vessel was broken in so that they had scarcely time to run her ashore, some two miles, when she filled. The cargoes of both vessels are lost. This is the third time the crew of the HARRIET ROSS has been wrecked this season.
