p.2 The Gale - A few particulars have reached us of the strength of the gale on the lake. At South Bay a very heavy gale of wind, with rain, commenced on Wednesday afternoon and continued until midnight. The steamer Algerian, and also a propeller, came into port for shelter, and left about two o'clock in the morning, the weather having moderated. The schooner Catharine was driven ashore from her anchorage in the bay, and a vessel was seen ashore on Timber Island, from the effects of the gale. At Wellington, a fearful storm of wind and rain, the heaviest ever experienced, here at this season of the year, passed over, tearing down fences, fruit and ornamental trees in a terrible manner - also carrying away a portion of the two docks. Several fishermen lost their boats and nets, which were carried away by the heavy seas.
