      Marine- During the gale on Saturday, the brig BURLINGTON from Lake Erie, and the schooner SENECA of this port, were driven by, while striving to make the Oswego harbor. The BURLINGTON, unable to make the Sacketts Harbor passage, went into the mouth of Stoney Creek, and was taken by the force of the sea over the bar and safely lodged in five feet of water, where she now lies. She has a cargo of wheat some of which must be damaged, having shipped seas that gave her two feet of water, which was pumped out after she went ashore. She will probably be got off with little damage to the vessel after discharging her cargo. The SENECA made the Sackets Harbor passage, but went ashore inside, where we understand she lays in safety, and will probably be got off with little damage to vessel or cargo. the Schooner FRONTIER which went ashore in the east harbor on Saturday morning while coming in, has got off without material damage after discharging her cargo- Oswego Times.
