- Full Text
GALE. - Last Saturday afternoon, a fleet of vessels, numbering about fifty, left our port for the west wit a fair breeze - wind north-eats. At 9 o'clock in the evening it commenced raining, and about 1:30 o'clock yesterday morning, the wind shifted to the westward, and blew a gale until morning.
Many of the vessels had their canvas badly stripped and torn, by the force of the wind. The brig MAURICE came in with her sails badly stripped, and her main-boom broken, where it is joined on the main-mast.
The brig NORTH AMERICA had sad havoc done to her sail, during the late gale.
The brig L.A. BLOSSOM was much injured in her rigging.
The brig G.T. WILLIAMS, bound down, during the gale was run into by another vessel, and had her head rigging and flying gib boom carried away. The name of the other vessel, and likewise the damage done her, was not known.
