      The schr. ECHO was seen last night capsized a few miles off Rochester, on Lake Ontario, by the captain of the stm. NORSEMAN. There was no one on board. It is feared the vessel capsized in the gale of Wednesday night, and that the crew perished. The ECHO belonged to Hamilton.

No tidings of the crew of the schr. ECHO, capsized on Lake Ontario, have been received, and the conviction is strong that they have perished.

The Oswego Advertiser of Saturday says: "It will be remembered that the schr. ECHO was found capsized in Lake Ontario off Charlotte, several weeks ago, after a heavy storm. The ECHO was in this port again the early part of this week, with a crew claiming to be the same that sailed in her before the accident. They state that they passed a rough night and a portion of their head gear was carried away. Fearing the results, they abandoned the vessel, took to the boat and made land in safety. It has been supposed in this action that the entire crew of the ECHO were lost.
