Gale On Lake Ontario --Letters from Sackett's harbor, of the 16th. inst. state that a violent gale was experienced there on that day. The schooner ARIADNE, Capt. Reed, the best vessel of her size on the lake, was capsized at Fox Island, near Grand Island. Crew and passengers saved. She was in ballast. The schooner JOHN, of Cape Vincent, laden with pork &c., went on shore in Sackett's Harbor Bay, a perfect wreck - crew saved. A small schooner rigged pleasure boat, which went out on the same day, with three persons, was capsized, and two of them (Lee & Veges) lost: the other person saved himself by swimming. It was expected many other accidents and losses had happened. -- Merchantile Adv.
