p.2 The Late Storm - Part of the Oswego Pier Gone - A despatch from Oswego, dated Dec. 18th states that:- "One of the severest storms that old Ontario ever experienced is now prevailing. The wind is from the northwest, and is of unequalled violence, accompanied with snow squalls. The scene presented from the government pier is terrific; a break of nearly 200 feet in length has already occurred in the west pier, which is momentarily widening. The large warehouse of Mr. F.T. Carrington, filled with grain and flour, situated just within the pier, and nearly opposite the bridge, is thought to be in great danger; the first floor is already washed by the waves. It is feared several vessels are out on the lake. The schooner J.L. Manning, with a cargo of flour from Toronto, yesterday, has not arrived at this port yet, and it is thought she will not be able to resist the violence of the wind. Much anxiety is also felt about the brig Ocean, which is also thought to be on the Lake. Should the storm continue through the night, great damage will be done to the warehouses near the mouth of the harbor, and also to vessels laid up there." The storm did continue throughout the night, but we have no account of further damage.
