DISASTERS BY THE LATE GALE. -- A severe gale came down the lake on Friday night last, which did some damage in the port of Dunkirk. The schr. ESSEX, bound to Cleveland with salt, was driven on shore at the lower part of the bay. We understand the cargo is but little damaged, and probably the vessel will also be got off with little damage. Some damage was dont to the wharf and the goods in the storehouse on the wharf - how much we have not learned. Parts of the hull of a vessel came on shore the next day, supposed to be the wreck of some lost vessel up the lake.
