Capt. Hammond, of the schr. Eagle, who arrived yesterday from Buffalo, states that on the evening of the 10th inst. a terrible gale commenced at that place, which continued during the 11th and caused much damage to the vessels lying at that place. Among the vessels which are most injured, are the sloop Hannah, (Capt. Coit), and the schr. Erie, (Capt. Gellet,) the latter of which was deeply laden for this place. These two vessels parted their cables and were driven ashore. So violent was the gale that the Hannah was left several feet from the water when it had subsided.


Expectation. having been "on tip-toe" for more than a week, "looking out" for the steam boat Walk-in-the-Water has quietly sat down to rest herself, consoled in the reflection that in the late gale at Buffalo, the boat did not walk on the land.-- We are informed that her detention is in consequence of some part of her machinery being out of repair.
