HEAVY GALE.---DAMAGE DONE.---The scow ADDA, with a cargo of shingles from Fairport, struck upon the West pier (Cleveland) and was in great danger for a time, but her main boom having parted, the wind caught the sails and drove her up the channel, the lapping sail catching about the works of the propeller MANHATTEN on the west side of the river, tearing the sail to ribbons.
