(NOTE:-the three passengers would be part of the crew of the Schooner BUFFALO wrecked on Long Point Nov.7th. and picked up by the BREWSTER for passage back to U. S.)

      THE BLOW -- MARINE DISASTERS. -- About half past nine o'clock last evening, a stiff breeze commenced blowing, which soon increased into a perfect gale. The storm was accompanied by a driving hail and sleet. No particular damage was done about the city, save the tearing down of signs, etc. Some four or five vessels cleared from this port during the day, for whose safety some considerable anxiety was felt. The schooner BREWSTER, sailed from Long Point, C. W., on the 11th of November for Cleveland. She had on board five passengers and a crew of five or six men. She is supposed to have capsized and all on board lost. No traces of the passengers have yet been discovered. The vessel went ashore near Fairport.
