A WRECK.---Capt. Tyler, of the schooner BUFFALO, reports that on his last trip from Buffalo, when about half way between Cleveland and Point au Pelee, and nearly in the middle of the lake, he discovered the end of a boom sticking out of the water. He hove to, fastened to it and brought it up with a reefed mainsail attached, the main sheet parting. It was in 11 fathoms of water. The boom was about 40 feet long and spliced about 10 feet from the jaws with two iron rings. The boom, sail, rigging, &c., brought up were very old. He thinks the vessel went down with all sails standing, and may have been the CLYDE, lost last fall.----Detroit Adv.
