Disasters on Lake Ontario - A dispatch dated Oswego, August 31st says:

The schr. ALPHA from Toronto, has been wrecked in this harbor; crew saved. The schr. ORION, from Cleveland for Kingston, is sunk off Long Pt., Canada; crew saved. The schr. RICHARDSON from Toronto, is ashore at Presque Isle.

Another dispatch says the brig OCEAN of Hamilton, commanded by Capt. Dunn, and freighted with stone from Cleveland to Picton, sprung a leak on Lake Ontario yesterday (Friday) morning, and sunk in 15 minutes. The crew of 7 made land at a distance of 30 miles in an open yawl through a heavy sea. It is probable that the other marine disasters have occurred on the lake.
