p.2 Severe Gale - Throughout yesterday the wind blew very fresh, increasing in violence until the evening, when it became a perfect gale. We understand the steamer America, from Rochester to Toronto, in going alongside the wharf at Coburg, missed her lines and was driven hard ashore. The steamer Princess Royal remained at Cobourg until yesterday morning, when the steamer City of Toronto came up, and with the united powers of these large steamers, we regret to add their efforts were of no avail. The excellent steamer Princess Royal came into port yesterday afternoon with her passengers all safe. The mail for Montreal went forward this morning per steamer Ottawa.
