Full Text

      A severe gale from the southwest set in about 9:00 last night and at 10:52 the wind had reached a velocity of 28 miles per hour.
      About 1:00 this morning the tug ORIENT, laid up in the creek opposite the Board-of-Trade rooms, was thrown over on her side in consequence of the shortening of the hawser, by the rise of water, and afterwards sunk. She will be pumped out and raised without material damage.
