Description

One of the severest gales we have experienced this season, commenced on Saturday night last, and continud with unabated violence until Tuesday morning. At its commencement, the schooners NEPTUNE, PRUDENCE, and MERCATOR, of this port, and the WILLIAM, of Buffalo, were lying at anchor off the harbor, all of which were driven on the beach by the violence of the wind and waves. We do not learn that any of them are materially injured, except the WILLIAM. Some of her planks were stove in, and the hull otherwise damaged.
      The schr. PHOEBE, of Fairport, was driven ashore near the mouth of Grand River, and the schr. JOHN Q. ADAMS, belonging to Mr. N. H. Merwin, of this village, was beached near the light-house, at Buffalo. The steam boat PIONEER, of Black Rock, was driven ashore at Grand River, and sustained some injury, and will probably be laid up for the remainder of the season. The passengers speak in the highest terms of the coolness ot the master, Capt. Pease, and of his judicious managment during the perilous raging of the hurricane.

The schooners MERCATOR, NEPTUNE, PRUDENCE and WILLIAM are ashore at Cleveland and had not been heard of when he left; the MINERVA slipped her cable and had returned to Cleveland.

      It is said the steam-boat PIONEER, which was driven ashore at Grand River, will be broken up, and the machinery used for a new one. The schooner WILLIAM, which was driven on the beach at this place, is so much injured as to be unworthy of being repaired
