VESSEL LOST. --- During the late gale, a schooner rigged scow, known as the WAVE, about 70 tons burthen which was lying at anchor off west Sister, dragged her anchor and drifted off into the lake in the direction of the Canada shore. Two men named Morey and Conkey, went in pursuit of her from the Island in a small skiff, a day or two after, and have not been heard from since.
