Schooner Saratoga Lost - The schooner Saratoga, Captain Joseph Allen, foundered in the lake about 20 miles from this city last evening about 11 o'clock. She was loaded with 95,000 feet of lumber consigned to Messrs. Smith and Post. The captain and crew took to the yawl boat and arrived here this morning between 4 and 5 o'clock. The vessel and lumber will probably be a total loss. The Saratoga was owned by Capt. F. Igo of this city, and we understand was insured. [Oswego Times 14th]
