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 BLUE BELL is beached below Windmill Point in Canada, but not injured. - Commercial Advertiser.
