VESSEL LOST.

We learn from a gentleman from Pultneyville, that on the 4th inst. the Schooner Commodore Perry, from Sackett's harbor, about 20 miles out and nearly opposite the former place, was upset in a heavy gale, filled, and sunk. She was bound up the Lake, and fortunately had no loading on board. The crew very providentially escaped with their lives, in a skiff, and all arrived safe at Sodus the same day, a distance of at least thirty miles over an uncommonly rough sea. [Palmyra Register of Aug. 9th]
