THE ANDERSON. - The schooner Melrose, which took the colors off the Jessie Anderson, has arrived here. She reports the Anderson sunk fifteen miles out in the lake. Her colors were not set, and only her pennant was flying, indicating that she went down suddenly. It is believed that she was swamped and borne suddenly down by an overwhelming sea, giving the men no chance to escape. - [Oswego Press.
