The Lost Vessel.--A portion of the wreck of the Schooner VICTOR, which left for Buffalo last fall and was not heard from after passing Detroit, was picked up in Tonawando Creek, N. Y., a short time since and identified by Capt. Ripley, one of the Owners; thus rendering it certain that the vessel must have been lost, with all on board. The vessel was probably lost near Point Abino, Lake Erie. It will be remembered that Captain's Palmer and Dubois, of this place, were among the lost crew. - Milwaukee Sentinel
