Steamboat Martha Ogden.--I saw in your paper of yesterday, a statement from the Boston Traveller, that the steamboat Martha Ogden had been blown over the bar at Sammon [sic: Salmon] River, on Lake Ontario, on the 9th ult. This statement is ture; but it is incorrrect that she received any injury, or that she will have to take out her engine. She got out again over the bar without any injury, and she has since towed four rafts through the lake, from Oswego to Carlton Island. The person who made the above erroneous statement, must have done it with a malignant design to injure the owners, and he is not a gentleman of truth and veracity.
