Disasters of the Gale -The heavy gale which blew during nearly 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 than thirteen of which were beached, between Grand River and Erie, as far as we have information. We give below such particulars as we can learn respecting the wrecks.
