Arrival of the Virginia. - The schooner Virginia, which was carried into the lake by the recent freshet, arrive here yesterday morning, having suffered very little damage, aside from the carrying away of some of her rigging. She drifted down below Fort Ontario, off Sandy Creek, and became lodged in the ice, which save her from going to pieces.
A party of sailors with sails &c., under command of Capt. Williams, were despatched from this place by H.C. Wright, Esq., owner of the vessel. The men succeeded in getting aboard, and yesterday morning navigated her into port. This is a most fortunate recover, as we understand there as no insurance on the Virginia at the time, and she had she gone to pieces the loss would have been heavy.
