p.2 The Weather - Friday night last and all Saturday it blew a heavy gale of wind from the westward, of which we fear we shall have sad tidings. This present year has been a most disastrous year for the shipping in these Lakes. More vessels have been burnt, lost, or wrecked, more lives lost and more damage to cargo done, than during any preceding year within our recollection of twenty-five years. The Insurance Companies must have suffered immensely. And bad as the year has been it is not yet out, for seafaring people will still be venturesome in spite of bad luck.

Imports - Nov. 21st - Str. Cataract, (gen. cargo).

Nov. 22nd - Schooner Alet, Oswego, 100 bbls. water lime, 42 tons coal, G.M. Kinghorn; 200 sacks meal, P. Hyland.
