A Schooner owned by Mr. Smith of Belleville, laden with Wheat belonging to Bella Flint, Esq. and bound for Prescott, came in conduct with the Steam Boat United States on Monday night, about one mile from Alexandria Bay, and sunk immediately. The night was so extremely dark that the hands on board were not aware of the proximity of the vessel till too late to avoid the consequences which ensued. Fortunately the crew of the Schooner escaped in a small boat.
