SEVERE GALE

TWO VESSELS AND A LARGE AMOUNT OF OTHER PROPERTY LOST

Michigan City, Sept. 29th - A severe gale swept over our harbor last evening, during the prevalence of which the brig Northampton and schooner Puritan, lying at their wharves in this city, were driven ashore and lost.

The Northampton had on board part of a cargo of wheat, and the Puritan a load of railroad iron - a portion of which had been discharged.

The gale raged with such severity that the dock was also carried away, with a large amount of iron, which was piled upon it.

Captain McGregor, of the steamer Kaloolah, who is so well known in the navigation of Lake Huron, has succeded Capt. Milloy in the command of the steamer Chief Justice Robinson.
