The Gale

On Friday night last, the wind shifted suddenly at about 2 a. m. blew a gale; which continued with unusual severity for about 12 hours. At 4 a. m. the steamer Oneida, Capt. Childs, was seen off our harbor in her trip up the lake - she was unable to make the port, and after an unavailing effort was driven back to Sackets Harbor. She came in on Monday morning, and has we understand, suffered no great damage.

Capt. Van Cleve, on her passage down the lake was for some time in a dangerous condition, but finally made our Harbour in safety at 11 o'clock on Saturday. The steamer John Marshall with emigrants from Kingston for this port, was driven ashore near Stoney Point, where she lies out of water. No lives were lost. We have heard of no other serious accident upon Lake Ontario.
