Full Text

From the Buffalo Commercial of Saturday.--GALE.- A heavy and destructive gale has been raging here since Midnight. It commenced blowing from the South then veered to the Southwest with increased fury. The schooner MARTHA FREME came in during the gale this morning and rounding the pier, ran against it and sprang a leak - she however reached the dock and is now still afloat - both pumps are kept going. The schooners LEXINGTON and JAMES KING, are stranded below the light house, but will sustain but little injury. The schooner NAVIGATOR lost some spars and all her bulwarks on the larboard side.
