DESTRUCTIVE GALE AND FLOOD AT BUFFALO
We have been obligingly permitted to copy the following particulars of the damage done by the late gale at Buffalo, from a business letter to a gentleman in this city.
"The wind commenced blowing violently from the southwest on Saturtday morning about 2 o'clock, and the water rose in the creek to within a few inches of the height of the great freshet of 1835, carrying everything before it, brigs, steamboats, schooners, canal boats and wharves. My dock is all gone, not a stick to be seen. The Schooner VICTORY laid alongside of it, but now lies high and dry on the flats above. Cargo flour and stave. Below is a list of a part of the destruction of property.
Steamboats MICHIGAN and VERMILLION, high and dry.
Brig ERIE, high and dry with 200 tons of merchandise.
Brig INDIANA, high and dry, with a full cargo of produce. (part)
