We learn that during the gale on Monday last, the schooner Monroe, Capt. Host, belonging to the house of J.T. Trowbridge & Co. of this village, on her passage from Genesee River to this port, was driven ashore near Sodus, and so completely wrecked, that it is considered doubtful she can be refitted.
