Capt. Van Cleve, on her passage down the lake was for some time in a dangerous condition, but finally made our Harbour in safety at 11 o'clock on Saturday. The steamer John Marshall with emigrants from Kingston for this port, was driven ashore near Stoney Point, where she lies out of water. No lives were lost. We have heard of no other serious accident upon Lake Ontario.

THE GALE. On Friday night last, the wind shifted suddenly from the South to the N. West, and at about 2 A.M. blew a gale; which continued with unusual severity for about 12 hours. At 4 A.M. the steamer ONEIDA, Capt. Childs, was seen off our harbor in her trip up the Lake - she was unable to make the port, and after an unavailing effort was driven back to Sackets Harbor. She came in on Monday morning, and has we understand, suffered no great damage. The steamer St. LAWRENCE, Capt. Van Cleve, on her passage down the lake was for some time in a dangerous condition, but finally made our Harbour in safety at 11 o'clock on Saturday. The steamer JOHN MARSHALL with emigrants from Kingston for this port, was driven ashore near Stoney Point, where she lies out of water. No lives were lost. We have heard ofno other serious accidents upon Lake Ontario.

Effects of the Gale. - The steamer LADY OF THE LAKE, reported ashore at Ogdensburgh, is off and came into this port on Friday last, having sustained but little damage. The JOHN MARSHALL, which went ashore near Stoney Point, has gone to pieces, and is a total loss. The schr. PACIFIC, of this port, was wrecked at Huron, Lake Erie, and is lost, with 250 barrels of salt. She was insured for $700 at the North Western office. The schooner HANNAH,of this port, with a cargo of merchandize, bound up, was also wrecked in the Detroit River, below Malden, on the Canadian shore - insured at the North Western office. About 30 tons of her cargo have been taken to Detroit, and a portion of her rigging saved. We have heard of no other serious loss to Oswego shipping. The propellers have escaped without the least accident or loss. The gale appears not to have been so severe on Lake Michigan.
