      FOUNDERED. -- With regret we learn that a small craft, the LADY OF THE LAKE foundered, last week, off Gravelly Bay, on the British side of the lake, and two of the three persons on board, one of whom was the eldest son of W. Baker, Esq. Canal Collector, of this city, are supposed to have been drowned: The third drifted ashore upon the vessel's hatch.
