p.2 Gunboat Hercules - The gunboat Hercules arrived up about 5 yesterday afternoon, while the gale was at its height, and remained at the dock at the foot of Clarence street during today. She looks quite trim, is much improved from her former appearance, and is manned by genuine Jack Tars, who are too well used to being "rocked in the cradle of the deep" to mind such a mellifluous breeze as was blowing yesterday.

The Gale - The gale which blew so furiously all day yesterday moderated towards evening. Today the wind is high, but nothing in comparison to that of yesterday. The same vessels ride at anchor off the harbor, and the freight steamer Ottawa, bound upwards, has remained at her dock all day. The Royal Mail steamer went down at her usual hour this morning. The Bay of Quinte met with a very heavy sea in coming through the gap both yesterday and today. She reached and left here, however, at her customary time on both days.

Imports - 21-23; Exports - 20-23.
