Full Text

Capt. Hammond, of the schooner EAGLE, who arrived yesterday from Buffalo, states that on the evening of the 10th inst. a terrible gale commenced at that place, which continued during the 11th and caused much damage to the vessels lying at that place. Among the vessels which are most injured, are the sloop HANNAH, (Capt. Coit), and the schooner ERIE (capt. Gellet,) the latter of which was deeply laden for this place. These two vessels parted their cables and were driven ashore. So violent was the gale that the HANNAH was left several feet from the water when it had subsided.

      THE LAKE MARINE IN 1818
      The following list of vessels navigating Lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan, and Superior, in 1818, is taken from David Thomas' "Travels Through the Western Country,: printed in Auburn in 1819. The publication of this list of the feeble lake marine of less than sixty years ago will be interesting. It is stated, incidentally "the steamboat will soon start on Lake Erie."
