The Steam Boat Henry Clay arrived here yesterday from Green Bay, Mackinac, &c.--Gen's Scott, and Brady, passengers. There is a rumor, brought by the H. Clay, that the Winnebagoes have evinced a hostility to the miners, and that Gov. Cass had proceeded to the Prarie [sic] du Chien for the purpose of settling the difficulty. We apprehend that no serious consequences will arise from the hostility of the Winnebagoes, for, haughty and untameable as they are, their knowledge of the power of our government will restrain them from every thing like open hostility.

Gale.--On the 22d ult. a severe gale occurred at the eastern end of Lake Erie. Much damage was done to the salt, and other articles deposited in the stores in what is called the lower village, in Buffalo, in consequence of the rise of water.--The Schr. Surprise was discovered on Sunday morning, water-logged, about 8 miles above Buffalo, and on visiting her, the capt., Philip Secord, was found dead near the windlass, entangled among the rigging. The vessel was a complete wreck; and the crew, consisting of the capt., two hands, and a boy, are supposed to be lost. The schr. Nucleus, of Buffalo, went ashore at Sandusky, but will be got off without much injury.
