Storm - Vessels Beached : A severe Northwest storm has been raging in this vicinity since Wednesday evening last. The snow has drifted in many places to a depth of 6 or 8 feet.
Some of the shipping of this port has suffered from the violence of the gale :- The Brig MANHATTEN, belonging, we believe, at Detroit, is beached near the place where wrecks occurred last fall - on the rocks within the East Pier, the Schooners MOSES and SCOTLAND have shared a similar fate. These vessels were all moored within the Harbor, but were broken loose by the force of the storm, and driven ashore. -- Oswego Advertiser
