BURNING OF A SCHOONER AT PORT DOVER. -- The Simcoe Standard of the 30th ult., says that on Monday night the schooner SUZANNA, of Port Ryerse, and belonging to Mr. Ryerse, for Buffalo, laden with flour and lumber, was obliged, through inclemency of weather, to put into Port Dover harbor, and during the night was discovered to be on fire. We believe the master and mate were the only persons on board at the time, the sailors being up in the village. Some 500 barrels of flour were on board, only 37 of which were above deck, and it was found impossible to get them up. The vessel was, as soon as possible, scuttled and sunk by the pier. We regret extremely to learn that the flour was the property of Mr. Slight, of Waterford, whose mills were burned Thursday night last.
