HEAVY STORM AT OSWEGO.
      Boat Capsized, One Man Drowned, Buildings Unroofed and Other Damage Done.
Oswego, Sept. 26. -- A fearful storm of wind and rain raged here all night and this morning. The wind recorded 50 miles an hour but blew much harder at the lake. The roof was blown from Malone's planing-mill and trees and chimneys are down all over the city. The schooner GAZELLE was capsized this morning near Fair Haven. The crew clunk to the wreck and drifted ashore, with the exception of a sailor named Wilson, who was drowned. Fears are entertained for other vessels known to be out.
