Rochester Republican, 30 Sep 1841

Full Text

Gale on Lake Ontario - Vessel Sunk! - It proves, as we feared; a heavy gale was experienced on the lake on Sunday. Capt. Kerr, of the Gore, informs us that the schooner Nekick, of Port Ontario, from Cleveland, ladened with corn, foundered at the Cobourg wharf during the gale; no person lost. He also states that during his passage across, quite a number of shingle bunches were seen floating about; also timber and other lumber, the freight of some vessel or vessels from which it was washed away, or possibly the vessel lost. The City of Toronto on her upward passage, encountered tremendous swells, having her jolly boat washed away. We fear thee will be other accidents to record.
