Shipwreck - The schooner New York, of Oswego, was capsized in the severe gale of Sunday the 15th ult. and drifted ashore and broke in pieces, at Marysburgh, near the Ducks. All hands perished. Two of them were alive, when she reached the shore, and attempts were made to save them; but the surf ran too furiously, and they were both drowned. Other two men were found dead, lashed to the vessel. She was laden with staves, of which a large quantity, and parts of the vessel, and her rigging, have been saved. - Kings. Her.
