Wrecked Vessels.-- A letter from the Grand Rapids Enquirer, reports the loss of the sch. POST BOY, and that a portion of her wreck was found between Kalamazoo River and Grand Haven. It is feared that the crew and three passengers were lost.
The schooner ONONDAGA is reported on the beach near Manistee River. She had on board 6000 bushels of wheat for Oswego.
The same paper says that parts of the brig INDIANA have been found on the beach, leaving no doubt of her total loss
When the ONONDAGA beached, three other vessels are said to have been in sight, and are supposed to have gone ashore. But this is all conjecture.
