Damage in the late gale. -- We have obtained the following facts in relation to the damage done by the gale of the 13th inst., and lay them before the public as authentic....
      The schooner LADY WASHINGTON, with a cargo valued at 10 or 15,000 dollars, was wrecked on the 19th inst. off Sturgeon Point. She struck a reef, was got off, and finally sunk in 18 feet water -- crew all safe. The cargo, composed of salt and dry goods, owned by merchants at Erie, and in the interior, was principally stowed in the hold, and will probably be wholly ruined- no insurance. The vessel said to be old and unseaworthy.
