A heavy blow commenced on the evening of the 15th, which continued with great violence until the 18th. the wind was principally from the north and north west. We learn that it was very severe upon the shipping down the lake; but the particulars, and the extent of injury done, we have not ascertained. It is said that the Steam-boat Pioneer, and the schooner Phebe, were driven ashore at Grand river on Sunday. It is also said that there are four schooners ashore at Cuyahoga--the northern termination of one of the Ohio canals! Their names are understood to be the Gen. Huntington, the William, the Prudence and the Neptune. We have not heard that any lives were lost.
When the storm was at its utmost pitch of severity, the sch. Mariner, of 96 tons, Capt. Blake, came safely into port. The schooners Commerce, Morning Star, and Fox, also arrived in safety, during the storm.
