Gale on Lake Ontario

The Schooner Minerva, with 6,200 bushels of Wheat, and the W. H. Merritt, a Canadian Vessel, without loading, went ashore at Braddock's Bay. The former will be a total loss. Likewise the Cleveland, at Irondequoit Bay, with 250 bushels salt. Total loss. 1,000 bushels Wheat, taken from the Schooner Missouri, wrecked near the Genesee River, have been brought into this port. She has several feet of water in here hold. It is feared that the Western, ashore at Irondequoit Bay, will be a total loss.

Another View

We were visited by another severe storm of wind and snow on Wednesday and Thursday of last week. The wind blew a perfect hurricane for upwards of 48 hours. But we suppose every thing was either ashore, or in Port, and consequently that little damage was done. A Canadian vessel, which came over after the loading of the Grampus, went ashore in our harbor on Thursday evening. This is the fourth vessel which has been beached here during the late storms. About 40 feet of the East Pier, of our harbor was carried away, on Thursday night, and the remainder is very badly damaged.
