SCHOONER SUNK. -- The schooner RUGGLES, Capt. Brown, while passing out of Grand River a day or two since, was run into and sunk by another schooner. Crew saved. The vessel was once a side-wheel steamer, and previous to the advent of the MICHIGAN, was in the employ of the Government.

      Capt. Wm. Brown, of the schooner RUGGLES, left Grand River, C. W., yesterday, for Buffalo, with a hired horse. He was accompanied by a young man who was to drive the horse back, after arriving at the "feeder," where Capt. Brown intended to take the cars and come on to this city. During the journey, the horse took fright, and plunging into the river, was drowned. The occupants of the carriage escaped.
