p.2 The Gale of Sunday Night - A strong gale set in from the northwest on Sunday night, and it blew heavily until this (Monday) morning. Fences and trees were blown down in the city, and the roof was blown off an inhabited house in Williamsville. There has been no accident in the harbor to notice, but a schooner, heavily laden, was driven ashore on Cedar Island. The steamer Champion lay over at Gananoque, and did not reach here until this morning. After a delay of some hours, the gale having worn itself out, she left on her way to Toronto and Hamilton.

The vessel ashore at Cedar Island is the Mountaineer, from Toledo to Ogdensburgh with twelve thousand five hundred bushels corn. She got into the harbor about one o'clock this morning and came to anchor. The gale, however, was too much for her, and she dragged her anchor, and drifted where she now lies. She is leaking badly.

Police Court - sailor fined two dollars for being drunk and disorderly.

p.3 Port Colborne, Nov. 4th - The brig Supply went ashore here early this morning during the gale. She is loaded with wheat from Chicago for the Port Colborne elevator. The cargo will have to be lightened off, as the vessel is hard on the Rock Reef just east of the Piers.
