The Gale of Saturday, on Lake Ontario, was the severest of the season, to the violence of which, a large number of vessels were exposed. We have heard of no serious disaster except the melancholy loss of the schooner Neptune with seven persons on board. The steamer Cataract, Capt. Chapman, came up against the gale and a tremendous sea with 70 tons of freight and a large number of passengers, with whom there was a good deal of consternation and sickness. The Cataract reached here about 4 o'clock P.M. and entered the harbor in gallant style under the skillful direction of her brave and accomplished commander.
