Full Text

Storm on Lake Ontario. - A heavy gale has prevailed on Lake Ontario since Saturday forenoon. Saurday afternoon the propeller PERSEVERANCE of St. Catharines, in attempting to make the Port of Genesee ran on the east pier, but was soon blown off. Before steam was got up she came near going ashore just west of the entrance to Irondequoit Bay, but throwing out her anchors she was brought to and getting up steam, her cables were slipped and she made the harbor without further trouble. Yesterday in company of the tug D.T. HUNT the anchor was retrieved. No other disasters are reported, but we should not be surprised to hear of many.
