The Oswego Advertiser of Saturday says That on the morning previous, the wind blew with such terrific violence, as to drive two vessels from their moorings within the West Pier, on the rocks at the foot of Fort Ontario. The Canadian schooner GRAMPUS is the other vessel wrecked. She had recently been repaired and refitted having lost two of her masts and been otherwise injured in the gale of October, and was to have sailed with a heavy cargo of oak timber. All day the sea broke over her to the height ofher fore-top. She has broken amidship, and will doubtless be a total loss. She was a large and valuable vessel, belonging to Hamilton. the crews of both vessels were taken off in the morning by the yawl of the Revenue Cutter.
