The little schooner " VAN," bound from Cattaragus Creek to Van Buren Harbor with three persons on board, capsized about 2 P. M. on Monday about three miles above Silver Creek. About 4 P. M. the steamer DIAMOND came along, when Capt. Miller discovered the three men clinging to the bottom of the vessel. Although blowing fresh at the time, in squalls, Capt. Miller succeeded in rescuing them from their perilous position.
