Schooner W.L. MANNING, when loading coal was driven against the pier at Cleveland in a gale.

      SCHOONER WRECKED. - The schooner W.L. MANNING, loading coal outside the government pier, was struck last night by a sudden squall, and driven against the end of the pier with such force as to stave a hole in her side, and otherwise injuring her to such an extent that she will prove a complete wreck. She was a small vessel of 150 tons burthen, and is owned in Buffalo, we believe. We could not learn the amount of insurance on her. - Cleveland Herald.
