      . . . . .

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.
