VESSEL BURNED. -- The Toronto Colonist says on the 17th inst., a vessel supposed to be a schooner, was observed to be on fire on lake Ontario, about mid-lake and 12 miles west of Oswego. The steamer ARABIA made for her with all speed, but we regret to say she went down with all on board, before the steamer could possibly reach her. No clue has been left as to her identity or the number of hands on board; but however, in a few days the facts respecting her will be ascertained.
