Full Text

The weather for two weeks past, has been subject to frequent changes. Much of the time it has been very boisterous upon the lake; and navigation attended with considerable risk.--Several vessels have been wrecked. Among the number is the DETROIT, and the UTICA of Detroit. They were driven ashore near Elk Creek, both being deserted. It is supposed that the crew and passengers were drowned. The SIR HENRY on Sunday morning, was discovered ashore on Cedar Point by Capt. Wells, of the schooner SWAN. She was lying in three feet of water, partly filled. She had on board about one hundred and fifty barrels bulk of merchandise. No lives lost.
