p.2 The Storm And the Vessels Generally - The storm which has prevailed from the south west for the past two days and still blowing, has had its effect on the lake craft.

The schooner Phoebe Catherine, with a cargo of salt from Oswego to Wellington, lies on the North shore in a precarious position.

A vessel, name not known, is ashore below Point Pelee Light House, laden with wheat; she lay on the beach yesterday morning, but drifted off last night, and sunk in deep water.

The schooner British Queen, ashore at Wellington, laden with peas, was towed into this port yesterday. Part of the cargo, 200 bushels, was sold today in a damaged state.

The schooner Annie Maud, also laden with peas, is ashore at Wellington; supposed to be a total loss.

A large American vessel, name unknown, totally dismantled and bulwarks gone, is ashore at Salmon Point, and all hands supposed to be lost. She had a white flag flying from a pole when the steamer Grecian passed yesterday, but the sea was so high she could render no assistance.

The steamer Kingston, bound upwards, and the propeller Perseverance are in port since last evening, and cannot proceed for the storm. The steamer Magnet at Hamilton, and the steamer Passport at Toronto, cannot leave.

The schooner D.F. Warner broke from her moorings this morning, and drifted against the Cataraqui Bridge; the tug Ellen Jeffers went to her assistance. No injury sustained either to the bridge or the vessel.

Imports - 4-6; Exports - 4-6.
