The schr. ACORN which went ashore near Oswego, on Wednesday night, is a total wreck. She was an old vessel, and not over and above seaworthy. The schr. AUSTRALIA, which went ashore at the same place, lies broadside on, she has lost a portion of her bulwarks, and her cargo of grain is wet. The scow-schr. IONIA which met with disaster some 5 miles from Oswego is not materially damaged.
