From The Buffalo Commercial Advertiser Of Nov. 25 Gale - For the last twenty hours, we have experienced a strong gale from the west, accompanied with snow.

The flats in the lower part of the city are inundated. Cattle are swimming about and there will, no doubt, be considerable loss in wood, out-buildings, &c..

The sea wall, although unfinished, is of infinite service. The heavy surges dash against it, and recoil again, instead of sweeping across the peninsula to the harbour.

The Madison and Chesapeake, which left yesterday for the west, returned during the night, without sustaining any injury. The Pennsylvania has probably reached Erie.
