The Late Gale. - In addition to the particulars which we published in our last of the loss of life and property by the gale of the 11th inst. , we are enabled to give the following:

The schooner Robert Bruce of Henderson, Jefferson co. , left Kingston, U. C. on the morning of the 11th bound for Hallowell, was wrecked, and her crew consisting of Benjamin Chandler, Daniel Johnson, Albert Dye and one other, and a passenger named Elias Everett of Watertown, were lost. The wreck drifted on Henderson point on Saturday night, and the coat and wallet of Mr. Everett containing $719 and papers of value were recovered from the cabin. A British schooner was run ashore near Three Mile Bay, a complete wreck - crew saved. The schooner New York of this port, was run ashore in Chaumont Bay - crew saved. It is thought that she will be got off without much damage.

It is feared that the schooners Buckley and Willis, of this port, the former belonging to Messrs. M. Whitney and E. W. Clark, with a cargo of wheat for Mr. T. Wyman, and the latter belonging to Mr. T. Wyman with a full cargo of wheat for the owner, are lost on Lake Erie, together with their crews. Both vessels and cargoes were insured by the North Western Insurance Company in this village.
