Buffalo, Nov. 23.

Gale.--We experienced at this place on Sunday night last, one of the severest gales known for several years. The wind was from the south-west, accompanied with hail, rain and snow, and continued with unabated fury during the night. As yet, we have heard of no serious damage on the lake. The schooner Liberty parted her cable under point Abino, and arrived safe in port. The Red Jacket, lying off Erie, parted both cables during the gale, and arrived in our harbour the next morning. Several chimnies were blown down in the village, and one or two building[s] unroofed. The rise of water in the harbour was so great as to occasion considerable damage in the lower part of the town.--Journal.
