THE GALE. - During the whole of yesterday, up to a few minuter after 4 P.M. the wind blew strong from the southward, and at that time hauled in a moment to north west, and blew with tremendous force. The bark GRACE GREENWOOD just made the end of the Faitport piers before the wind had changed, and not succeeding in getting in before the squall, was struck by the propeller ORONTES which had put back, and her bowsprit knocked off, and her bow opened to light water mark - She was got in during the night. - Cleveland Herald, 29th.
