VESSEL LOST.-- From the Palmyra Register, of Aug. 9. -- We learn by a gentleman from Pultneyville, that on the 4th inst. the schooner COMMODORE PERRY, from Sacket's Harbor, about 20 miles out and nearly opposite the former place, was upset in a heavy gale, filled and sunk. She was bound up the lake, and fortunately had no loading on board. The crew very providentially escaped with their lives, in a skiff and all arrived safe at Sodus the same day, a distance of a least 30 miles, over an uncommonly rough sea.
