Full Text

A GALE. - The Chicago Tribune of Wednesday says:- The wind commenced blowing a
gale, accompanied with heavy rain, early yesterday morning. The white capped waves told plainly that the storm was felt on the lake, and a fleet of vessels from Buffalo and lumber ports were soon in sight and making for our harbor, like frightened birds. We notice the following disasters to the shipping:
Schooner MERCHANT, from Kalamazoo, with a cargo of lumber, broached to, and struck the north pier - carrying away her martingale and head rigging, and losing her starboard anchor overboard. (part of article)
      Buffalo Daily Republic
      Friday, September 9, 1853
