The late gale extended to lake Ontario, but so far as have heard from one vessel only has been injured. The schooner NEBICK of Port Colborne, with a cargo of corn from Cleveland, sank near the wharf at Cobourg, on Saturday last.

Lake Disaster- The schr. Neekick, of Port Ontario, from Cleveland, foundered at the Cobourg wharf druing the gale on Sunday-no persons lost. The steamboat City of Toronto, on her upward passage, encountered tremendous swells, and had her jolly boat washed away. Captain Kerr, of the Gore in crossing the lake on Monday, saw many bunches of shingles, timber and boards, the freight probably of some vessel or vessels, from which they had been washed or the vessels may have foundered.
