VESSEL SUNK.---Captain Clark, of the schooner HAPPY GO LUCKY, when 16 miles off
Black River yesterday, saw, what he supposed, a large vessel sunk. He could only see the main head, main topmast and gaff topsails flying. It is supposed from the size of the mast that she was a large vessel. he could not discover the rig, and sailed round her, but could find out nothing more concerning her. --Cleveland herald

VESSEL AND ALL ON BOARD LOST.---The Cleveland Plain Dealer, of the 14th. says
that the lost vessel reported by Capt. Clark, as lying off Black River, in 75 feet water, was probably capsized in the big gale of last week, and all on board lost. The dead body of a feamale was washed ashore at Avon Point, and if any of the crew had survived, we should have heard from them ere this. The vessel lies with her top-mast out. Capt. Clark thinks she must be a new vessel, from the fresh paint visible, and that an examination would develope her name and the fate of her crew.
