p.2 Gales on Lake Ontario - On Friday evening as the St. Lawrence was between Sacket's Harbor and Kingston, on her upward trip, she was struck by a "White Squall," which came near capsizing her before she could be brought to face the gale. The passengers on board describe the scene as truly terrific. The boat was thrown upon her beam ends the instant that the squall struck her, and the passengers expected she would speedily fill. It was with great difficulty that she was righted. The crockery and other fragile articles were broken into fragments. The crew of the St. Lawrence say the same boat encountered a similar, but less severe gale as she was coming into our port, and narrowly escaped being dashed against the pier. [Rochester Advertiser]
