Schooner Lost - We understand that the schr. HANNAH, from Cleveland with wheat, was last seen off the "Devils Nose" above the mouth of the Genesee, a week ago last Wednesday during the heavy gale which was then blowing. Since that time she has not been heard of. No doubt but vessel and crew were lost about the time last seen.------ Rochester Daily Advertiser
