p.2 The Storm and the Steamers - The storm went down yesterday evening, enabling the steamer Kingston to leave for Toronto this morning, at which time no steamer had left Toronto for this port. The American steamer Bay State got in this morning, and left again after a short stay. The steamer Bay of Quinte had to lie over at Oliphant's landing, and at Bath, and did not get here until this morning. The captain reports having had a rough time of it in the upper gap. She had over eighty head of cattle on board, besides horses and sheep.

Vessels Ashore - Independent of the many marine disasters on the Canadian side consequent on the recent storm, several more are reported to be more or less disabled on the American side, particularly along the Oswego shore.

Scow Reported Lost - The scow Wasp, owned by Mr. Forbes, of Portsmouth, is reported lost with the hands on board, but no particulars of the fact have reached us.
