Disasters of the gale -- The heavy gale which blew during the whole of Monday night, caused an unprecedented amount of damage to our Lake craft. A large number of heavily laden vessels were out, no less that thirteen of which were beached. We give below such particulars as we can learn respecting the wrecks.

The Wrecked Schooners. -- The BENJAMIN BARTON and LODI, beached near our Harbor last fall, prove not to have been so seriously injured as was feared. The BARTON has been raised and floated into the Harbor. A trifling expense will refit her. The LODI purchased by Capt. A. P. Tubb, of this township, has been raised and found to have sustained but little injury except the loss of her keel. -- Conneaut Gazette
