Wreck. -- The proprietors of the Steam Boat ONTARIO inform us that early on the morning
of 23d the Steam Boat passed the wreck of a vessel about fifteen miles from land, off Sodus. Only one mast and the shrouds were seen, the hull and all else being under water. The probability is that she was wrecked on the night of the 22d, during one of the most violent storms that has lately been experienced on Lake Ontario, and that every person perished. The gale was so violent at the time that it was not safe for the ONTARIO to stop, and indeed it appears nothing could have been effected had it stopped. The name of the vessel is not yet known.
