Full Text

      A strong gale commenced blowing from the south and west last night, which continued with considerable furore until this morning, producing some diseaster among the vessels.
      The steamer CLEVELAND had a collision with the brig REBECCA, somewhere off Siver Creek, doing some injury, and causing the latter vessel to return to this port. Her bob-stay, head rigging, cut-water, and jib-boom, were carried away, and the steamer is somewhat shattered about her starboard gang-way. She is now on the railway. - Buffalo Commercial Advertizer, October 2.
