      BUFFALO AND VICINITY
      [Special Telegram to the Inter Ocean.]
Buffalo, N.Y., Nov. 24. -- The fiercest storm thus far this season has passed over this vicinity, and was particularly disastrous to shipping interests. Three craft are ashore within a mile of each other. The schooner J.W. DOANE, which went on the north breakwater, will become a total wreck. Her mainmast went overboard about noon, and it is expected that she will be broken in two before morning. She is insured for $25,000, and owned by W.M. Egan, of Chicago.
      The barges A.H. MOSS and GROTON, of the tow of the eteambarge EMPIRE, which broke adrift abreast of Dunkirk, sailed down to this port, and are both ashore. The MOSS is on the beach near Bird Island piers, and the GROTON is well up in the sand south of the lighthouse about one mile. They are both considered lying easy; cargoes and hull insured. The insurance people are making preparations to lighter them when the seas subside.

      Buffalo, N.Y., Nov. 30. -- The schooner A.H. MOSS, which was beached just below the North Breakwater during the heavy south-wester last Friday, has been released, and is now in port. She is damaged but very little.
The GROTON is still on the beach south of the lighthouse. Her release will be attempted as soon as the wind subsides.
