SEVERE GALE. -- We had a very severe gale of wind Monday night last, accompanied with snow, which we fear, has been very destructive to property on the lake. It is said that the steam brig SUPERIOR is ashore at Sandusky, and the steamboat PIONEER, at Grand River. What damage has been sustained by these vessels we have not learned. The schooner GENERAL HUNTINGTON, Capt. Foster, is ashore at the mouth of Walnut Creek, 10 miles above this place. She was partly freighted with ashes, the principal part of which will be lost. It is also said that there is a schooner ashore near Ashtabula -- name not known.
