SHIPWRECK -- The Schooner UTICA, as we learn from yesterday's Advertiser, was driven ashore about ten miles west of Presque Isle, on Lake Huron, on the 25th. ult, and became a total wreck. No lives were lost, but the passengers and crew suffered much, being stranded upon the shore forty-eight hours without shelter and exposed to the inclement weather. The UTICA was owned by Mr. C. M. Gidings of this city, and was insured, partially at least, at Oswego.
