On the evening of the 13th there was a violent squall on Lake Ontario, accompanied as those who were on the lake say, by snow and lightning. The Lady of the Lake, Capt. Taylor, was on her passage from Sacket's Harbor to this port, and encountered the utmost violence of the squall. it lasted but two or three hours, but as the weather was bad for a day or two previous, there soon arose a tremendous sea. Considerable anxiety was felt, as the snow storm precluded all view of objects the boat's length off, and she was known to be on her way. She safely arrived - reporting the extraordinary occurrence of a violent snow squall accompanied by excessive lightning.

It was merely the return of the 13th of November, and of the meteoric showers, which now seem to belong to our system and annually visit us at about that period of the year.
