Disasters On The Lake - The schooner Caroline, of this port, which left here on Saturday for Niagara, with merchandise, came in contact with the schooner Essex, bound down with wheat from Lake Erie, off Sodus, at about 9 o'clock on Saturday night. Both vessels were considerably injured, the masts of the Caroline being nearly carried away and otherwise so much injured that she was abandoned by the crew, who were carried into the Genessee River, by the Essex. The captain of the Caroline arrived here yesterday, in the schooner Congress, and a schooner and steam boat, we understand, have been dispatched in search of the Caroline. - Oswego Herald
