The Schooner MARY of Oswego, Capt. Trowbridge, from the Genesee, bound for Ogdensburgh, freighted with about 600 barrels of Flour and Pork, struck on a rock in a gale, last Tuesday, at the False Ducks. - Soon after she struck, the Captain and three men went ashore in a boat, leaving two men on board, who were taken off yesterday by Capt. Mosier, of the schooner MARY ANN of this port, together with the Captains trunk &c., at the imminent risk of his life.-- We are informed by a passenger, who went on shore with the captain, that he is now in the Bay of Quinte, endeavoring to procure boats to save as much of the property on board as possible.-- It is feared however, that by this time she is a complete wreck..
