Description
Full Text

Oct. 18 - Great Gale- Steamer St. LOUIS, Floyd, master, was caught in this storm off Dunkirk, during which she broke a shaft and sustained considerable injury to her light works. Much alarm and confusion prevailed on board, and it is believed three men and a boy were lost overboard. The boat finally worked her way, crippled as she was, and filled with a large number of passengers, in safety to Black Rock; her deliverance, under all the circumstances, was considered miraculous.
