Another Lake Accident.--On Tuesday night last. the Schooner HENRY, of Oswego, and the Steamboat GOV. MARCY, came in contact about halfway between this place and Erie. The boat struck the schooner on her larboard bow, which carried away the bulwarks, &c. and otherwise considerably injured the schooner. The wind blowing pretty fresh, they were enabled to keep the schooner from sinking, by tacking about, and going on her larboard tack, until she arrived at our harbour, when in rounding the pier, she righted, filled with water, and went down in about 12 or 14 feet of water. --- Con. Gaz.
