. . . . .
A Terrific gale occurred on Lake Ontario Friday and Saturday last (12th. & 13th.), during which considerable damage was done to the shipping on the lake. It appears by the following from the Oswego Times that a number of vessels are known to have encountered the gale, and have not since been heard from. Much solitude is of course felt for their safety:
The schooner L.D. COMAN, which cleared for Toledo on Thursday, was obliged to put back and return to this port on Saturday, with the loss of 100 bars of railroad iron.
