KNOCKED OVERBOARD ON LAKE ONTARIO. - A promising young man named Charles Meeker, was knocked overboard from the schooner CARLTON, of Oswego, on her passage from that place to Youngstown, last Friday night. His cries were heard by the crew for some time, but owing to the storm and darkness, they were unable to save him. He had a premonition some evil was about to befall him, and before leaving home settled up his affairs, and, collected what was due him, paid it over to his mother, residing in Oswego.
