Storm On The Lake - During the last five or six days severe storms have prevailed on the Lake, which have considerably delayed and damaged many vessels. The steamer Passport encountered a heavy gale on Friday evening during her trip from Kingston. She did not arrive until eleven o'clock that night, when she landed a detachment of the Royal Canadian Rifles at the Queen's Wharf, from whence she proceeded on her trip to Hamilton. She returned on her trip to Toronto next morning. The storm now rages on the Lake with unabated, if not increased violence, in consequence of which the Passport was unable to go down to Kingston on Saturday morning on her regular trip. Several other vessels were also detained in port her from the same cause. The Kingston steamer Magnet due here at eight o'clock on Saturday morning, had not arrived at eight o'clock on Saturday evening. - Leader
