HEAVY GALE--DAMAGE DONE.---But little damage was done at this (Cleveland) port to the shipping. Two propellers, the NEW YORK and OLEAN came into port safely, through requiring close and careful management.
The Canadian Brig NORTHERN LIGHT, in making the entrance to the river, was driven against the West pier, tearing away some of her head-gear and smashing her boat at the stern. She was then got into the river without further damage. (part)
