LOSS OF THE SCHOONER "COMET."
      It is reported, and we feel too true, that the Schoonee COMET, Capt. Warner, and owned by Mr. A.G. Goss, of this town, which had sailed as a Packet from this port to the Head of the Lake, has been lately wrecked near Burlington Bay, and every person on board perished, there being a number of passengers, except three, the captain, a women, and a sailor. We hope soon to have the particulars of this distressing occurrence.

      The report of the schooner COMET being lost, has we are happy to state been contradicted.
