Watertown, on her arrival from Cape Vincent yesterday, reported seeing an American vessel around on Charity Shoals, near the head of Wolfe Island, she having evidently struck the night previous while bound down. The captain of the vessel, afterwards found to be the S. Robinson, of Chicago, reached the city last evening, and reports that the vessel struck on Sunday night. She is leaking badly, and had four feet of water in her hold. He had not yet procured assistance, but a tug was afterwards sent off. The S. Robinson was loaded with 15,000 bushels of wheat, shipped at Chicago and bound to Ogdensburg.
