LOST OVERBOARD. - Two men named WILLIAM OLSON, a Norwegian, and Harry Chase sailors on the schooner GEO. W, HOLT, were lost overboard during the blow of Tuesday last, when the vessel was about 20 miles above Long Point. Some men went out upon the jib-boom to lash down the sail, and these two were struck by heavy sea and carried overboard. The vessel's boat was lowered, but before the drowning men were reached they were drowned.
