SCHOONER WELLS LOST.
Oswego, Nov. 6. -- The American schooner FRED L. WELLS went ashore four miles east of here last night in the norther. The crew were taken off the wreck by Capt. Anderson and his life-savers from Oswego in their life-boat. The work was attended with great difficulty and much danger from the heavy seas. The lost boat was bound from Sackett's Harbor to Oswego and was running light. She will be a total loss.
