      EFFECTS OF THE GALE. -- The gale of Saturday proved disastrous to the shipping of the lakes. We learn that the propeller GEN. TAYLOR, which left here on Saturday morning with a part load of merchandise, bound to Dunkirk to fill up, went on the rocks inside of the break-water of that harbor. She was scuttled. The extent of her damage is not fully ascertained. She belongs to J.L. Hurd & Co., of Detroit, and ran in the North Shore Line.
