Probable shipwreck and loss of life on Lake Ontario.

Charlotte, Oct. 6,1841.

Gent.- The severe gale of the 27th has no doubt been more severe on the Lake than was supposed. The late northerly winds have driven ashore at and near the mouth of the Genesee river fragments of a vessel, such as deck plank and beams, bulwards, scuttled hatch &c. Also a quantity of pipe staves. marked D. X. and J. Y. and yesterday five Tarpolion Hats were found, whihc leaves no doubt but a vessel has foundered and all hands were lost. From the paint of the buwarks, there is no doubt but it was a British vessel loaded with staves, burn to Long Island, Canada.

Yours truly
P. A. Smith
