Marine Disaster. - The schooner ABBEY, of this port took in a cargo of 5,300 bushels of wheat, part at Queenston and part at Lewiston, a few days since and left the Niagara on the 31st of December, for Oswego, the weather being fair. During the gale and snow storm on New Year's day, she appeared off Sodus, and attempted to enter the harbor, but owing to the ice she could not get in, and grounded between the piers, and the Inspector of customs at that point writes under date of january 2d, that she was fast aground, and was taking in water. The ABBEY is owned by Mr. Henry Matthews of this city to whom the wheat is consigned. It is reported that there as no insurance on the vessel or cargo.
