DESTRUCTIVE GALE AND FLOOD AT BUFFALO
The wind commenced blowing violently from the southwest on Saturday 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, schooner, steamboats, canal boats, and wharves. My dock is 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, hig and dry
Brig ERIE, high and dry with 200 tons of merchandise
Brig INDIANA, high and dry with a full cargo of produce
Schooner BANCROFT, a complete wreck (part)
