Effects of the Gale. - The steamer Lady of the Lake, reported ashore at Ogdensburgh, is off and came into this port on Friday last, having sustained but little damage. The John Marshall, which went ashore near Stoney Point, has gone to pieces, and is a total loss. The schr. Pacific, of this port, was wrecked at Huron, Lake Erie, and is lost, with 250 barrels of salt. She was insured for $700 at the North Western office.

The schooner Hannah, of this port, with a cargo of merchandize, bound up, was also wrecked in the Detroit River, below Malden, on the Canadian shore - insured at the North Western office. About 30 tons of her cargo have been taken to Detroit, and a portion of her rigging saved. We have heard of no other serious loss to Oswego shipping. The propellers have escaped without the least accident or loss. The gale appears not to have been so severe on Lake Michigan.
