p.2 Effects of the Late Gale

Vessel Sunk - The Schooner Storm of Detroit, with a cargo of lumber from Perrysburgh, in making this port on Tuesday evening ran foul of the Pier, which knocked a hole in her, and she sank alongside the Pier. The vessel was old and of no great value, and was not insured. The schooner J.M. Lee, with a cargo of Lumber from Fairport, was out in the gale of Tuesday night, and came in yesterday morning minus her deckload, which was washed overboard during the night.

No boat left for the West on Tuesday evening in consequence of the severe storm, and probably none of the boats above left, as neither of the Cleveland or Sandusky boats due here arrived. The Plymouth Rock left for Detroit and the Empire State for Munroe about noon yesterday.

Several of the vessels which left here on Saturday and Monday, encountered the gale in such severity that they were obliged to put back to port. Among which were the Barque Lady of the Lake, Brig Grey Hound and others. [Hamilton Spectator]
