      Jan. 2, 1854 (casualty list)

      . . . . .

The Oswego Journal says, on Saturday night the wind changed from the south
into the west, and blew a gale at an early hour yesterday morning. More or less
damage was done to vessels entering the harbor and lying at the piers. The
small schooner Nightingale, with a cargo of lumber, was dismasted and sunk in
the harbor. The brig ISABELLA, with a cargo of wheat, from Cleveland, was so
much injured while coming in that she sprung a leak, and is supposed to have
damaged some of her wheat.
