p.2 There was a severe gale on Lake Erie on Sunday week. Some damage was sustained by the shipping on the Lake. The brig Standard and propeller Brunswick came in collision near Kelley's Island, where a large fleet had taken refuge, by which the propeller had her cabins considerably injured. The schooner E. Cramer, with 7,000 bushels of wheat, came into Buffalo leaking, but not badly. The steamer Bruce Mine, which arrived at Buffalo on Tuesday, fell in with a wrecked schooner, off Port Burwell, with her masts overboard and her sails and rigging gone, lying completely at the mercy of the winds and waves. The steamer towed her into port, and she proved to be the N.G., a lumber vessel, trading between Canada and Buffalo, and carried a crew of six men, who were all saved.

Drowned - Between 8 and 9 o'clock last evening, a cry of distress was heard by the persons in Isaac's Forwarding Office, which proceeded from the river, and on going down to the wharf it was ascertained that a man had walked off the dock. Search was immediately commenced, and in about fifteen or twenty minutes after the alarm was given, the body of a man was hooked out, which was recognized as Capt. Craig, of the schooner Lennox, of Kingston. Every effort was made to resusitate him, but life was found to be extinct. We did not learn his age. [Oswego Times 16th]
