LAKE DISASTER. -- A small schooner, the MARIA of Portland Harbor; Rigby, master, left that port on Thursday last for Buffalo, laden with leather, shoes, provisions, &c., for A. Rumsey. Soon after leaving port a severe gale came on when she made the port of Dunkirk; but anchoring too far out in the channel she parted her cable and drifted ashore where she now lies bottom side up. A hole has been cut through her bottom and the cargo found to be much damaged and some of it missing. It was fortunate that she was able to enter the harbor, as the night was so tempestuous and stormy, that it is thought the vessel and crew must otherwise have been lost. - Fredonia Censor
