WRECK. -- Capt. Whitaker, of the schooner GOV. CASS, arrived at this port yesterday morning, reports that on Sunday last off Black River, distant from shore seven miles, he passed a vessel sunk in ten and a half fathoms water. He was attracted to the spot by the main boom, about ten feet of which was out of water. The vessel was on the bottom, and the throat of the boom had risen upon the mast as high as the cross trees. Part of the sail remaining on the boom, and was close reefed. Capt. W. had no means of learning the vessel's name, or the fate of her crew - the boom was a new one, and had not been painted. On the passage down, the CASS spoke the steamboat ENTERPRIZE, Captain Miles, informed his of the wreck, and requested him to visit it, and obtain, if possible, further particulars - which was promised. As the nearest coast is a perpendicular iron bound shore, little doubt remains that every soul on board has perished. - - Buffalo Journal.

The wreck mentioned in an article we copied from the Buffalo Journal, turns out to be an old abandoned vessel, unseaworthy.
