On the 25th ult. a very severe gale was experienced on Lake Erie. The schr. Erie which left Buffalo on the 24th for this place was driven back with the loss of one of her masts.--the schr. Com. Perry was driven ashore and stove to pieces, a short distance above the pier at that place, and several vessels were also driven ashore at Black Rock and considerably injured--among them were the schrs. Beaver and the U.S. revenue cutter Dallas.

Capts. Brant and Whiting, and several other gentlemen who took passage in the Erie, have since arrived at this place through Canada.
