p.2 The Weather - Tuesday night proved to be one of the most boisterous of the season. The gale was from the westward and accompanied by rain, and continued throughout yesterday, but in a somewhat modified form. Three or four vessels which had left the harbor for western ports, on Tuesday evening, were compelled to put back. The steamer Ocean Wave, on her way downward from Toronto, had to brave the fury of the storm, but made this port all safe about noon yesterday, having been most thoroughly tested. We observed among the passengers by the Ocean Wave the Hon. M. Cameron - "that same old coon" - cheerful looking as ever, though confessing that in the night, during one of the most savage onslaughts of the gale upon the steamer, he thought he was a "gone coon."

The weather still remains of an open character, but the storm just mentioned, and which has not subsided at the time we write, may be immediately succeeded by frost and snow. The Bay steamers are still running.

We regret to learn that the brigantine Breeze, which left here on Tuesday evening with a fair wind, and attempted to return on encountering the westerly gale, got ashore near Nine Mile Point, and has sustained serious injury. Laden with iron, and exposed to a heavy sea, it is not improbable that she will prove a complete wreck.
