Loss of the Miniture Steamer ODD FELLOW. - This little craft, which has been so profitably engaged of late, towing canal boats up and down the Niagara; was lost on Saturday morning on a reef, two miles east of Gravelly Bay. She was owned by William Baker, and had been on a trading trip to Canada. Her loss was occasioned by encountering a gale, which drove her on the reef above mentioned. Baker and his two comrades, Homes and Morr, saved themselves by swimming to the shore. The ODD FELLOW was loaded with chestnuts, and cost some $500.
