Description
Full Text

Last week, the weather being fine, there were no doubt a large number of vessels out. The storm commenced Saturday night (11/22), and has been very violent. The steamer TROY came into our harbor on Saturday evening, and the Captain forseeing hard weather, lay by for better times. The brig MISSOURI came in on Saturday evening, loaded with corn for Mr. Watrdus; the current of the creek being strong, she could not enter the harbor, and would have gone ashore but for the stm. FRANKLIN, by which she was hauled in. The sloop EMMA, with a load of Watrous corn, came in on Saturdat night. The schooner NORTH CAROLINA, in attempting to come in failed and went ashore head on. The brig ALERT attempted to come in yesterday, but failed, owing to the strong south west wind and the current. Failing to get in, she cast anchor, and lay for some time near the pier. Three men with great difficulty and risk of life, reached the shore in the boat with a line, but the vessel dragged her anchor, and Capt. Scoville was obliged to slip his cable and make into the lake.
