p.3 Laid Up - All the steamers of the Mail Line have been laid up for the season except the Corsican, and she is expected from Hamilton tomorrow morning to lay up also.

A Gale - The storm drum was ordered up at Kingston and other lake ports at 11 o'clock yesterday, and shortly after that hour a heavy gale came on from the south. All afternoon the wind blew strong, and rain began to fall early in the evening. Between 6 and 7 o'clock the rain was very heavy, and it continued to fall fast and furious until a very late hour. The schooner Mary Battle ran aground last night about 12 o'clock on the shore out King street, near the Grand Trunk Brewery. She was bound from Cleveland to Prescott with stone, and in the gale had been stripped of her canvas, which caused her to drift on the shore. The tugs Lady Franklin, Frank Perew and Chieftain were despatched to her assistance about 1 o'clock this morning, and worked at her until about noon today, when she was got off and towed to Garden Island, where her bottom will be examined. It is not supposed the vessel is much damaged, but her cargo has shifted and will require to be restowed. We have not heard of other lake disasters.
