Buffalo.---The terrible gale of Sunday night rose to 66 miles per hour. Many minor accidents are reported. The tug A.M. PIERCE, which had gone to Point Abino for sand, lay under the point during the storm. Her sand barge sunk, and in rescuing the men she caught a line in her wheel and was drifting down the Niagara river when picked up by other tugs.
