THE ROMAN. -- There are various rumors afloat in reference to the schooner ROMAN, which has not been heard from since she left Detroit, but none reliable that gives us much hope for her safety. There is a probability that she may yet turn up somewhere about the Canada shore of Lake Erie, but we fear that she has gone down with all on board.

The ROMAN was owned by A. A. Adkins, of this city, and commanded by Capt. Wm. Wheeler, Ira Wells, mate, and Louisa Curtiss, stewardess. There were eight person in all on board. Mr. Wells has a wife in this city. Miss Curtiss resided formerly in Rochester, and last winter was pastry cook at the Munger House, in this city.

The ROMAN was built in 1853, from the old propeller OSWEGO, one of the first ever on the lakes. Her cargo of wheat was consigned to Ames & Sloan, and is fully insured. Vessel insured for $2,500. -- Oswego Times
