Buffalo, Nov. 21 - The storm king has shown evidence of his wrath during the past 2 days. A violent and steady gale commenced blowing from the west on Saturday night, which continued without intermission until sundown last evening and to render it more destructive to shipping, it was attended with flurries of snow, which at times entirely obstructed the vision.
The schooner WESTERN TRADER, Barton, master, with a full cargo of flour and provisions, is a total wreck on the beach, just above the Marine railway. His vessel is broken to pieces and full of water. - Commercial Advertiser.
