p.2 A Gale - The storm drum was ordered up about five o'clock last night, and a gale began to blow shortly after that hour. This morning it was blowing tremendously from the south. The water was rushing over the docks, the ferry wharf being wet all over. At Stewart's which is the most exposed, the water was coming over in large quantities. We have heard of no damage done so far, but it is almost impossible that the gale can pass without some harm being reported. The steamer Corsican started on her trip up at seven o'clock this morning, but was compelled to put back, and now lies at her dock awaiting the moderating of the gale. The Pierrepont could not make her dock this morning on account of the sea running, and had to discharge her large number of passengers and cargo at Carruthers' wharf. The steamer Queen, on her way up from Gananoque, had to hug the shore of Garden Island in order to near the city, which she did with difficulty. There are no signs of the gale moderating as we now write. Rain began to fall about 11 o'clock.
The Oswego Belle - It is now definitely settled that this steamer will be launched on Tuesday next, at St. Catharines. After remaining a couple of days at that town she will proceed to Oswego and may be expected at Belleville on the following day.
The Ferry Steamers & Gananoque Route - On and after November 1st one of the above steamers will leave for Gananoque daily at 3 p.m., Sunday and Monday excepted. For Wolfe and Garden Islands daily at 8:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 3 p.m. Returning at 9:15 a.m., and 1 p.m., and on Saturday an extra trip at 8:00 a.m.
The steamer Kincardine left Picton on Saturday last with 8,000 bushels of barley, discharged it in Oswego, and returned again in 26 hours.
21,800 bushels No. 1 barley were shipped from Northport on Tuesday last, per schooner J.G.Worts, by John Meagher, Esq., of Kingston, for Chicago.
