WRECK. - Capt. Whittaker, of the Schooner GOV. CASS, arrived at this port yesterday morning, reports that on Sunday last, off Black River, distance from shore seven miles, he passed a vessel sunk, in ten and a half fathom water. He was attracted to the spot by the main boom, about ten feet of which was out of water. The vessel was upon the bottom, and the throat of the boom had risen upon the mast as high as the cross trees. Part of the sail remained on the boom, and was close reefed. Capt. W. had no means of learning the vessel's name, or the fate of her crew,---the boom was a new one, and had not been
painted. On the passage down the CASS spoke the Steam-Boat ENTERPRISE, Capt.
Miles, informed him of the wreck, and desired him to visit it, and obtain if possible, further particulars,---which was promised. As the nearest coast is a perpendicular iron bound shore, little doubt remains that every soul on board has perished.
