WRECK AT BANGOR.

Yesterday at high water the Schooner George of Ardrossan which ran on the rocks in Bangor Bay last week became a total wreck. There was a very heavy sea from the Eastward at the time which smashed the Schooner in a few minutes. The steamboat wharf was also considerably injured owing to the heavy sea which was running during the day.
