The Harbor - The gale slightly moderated on Tuesday evening, and yesterday morning had altogether subsided. There are happily no further disasters here to report.

The steamer Magnet arrived from Toronto yesterday morning, reporting moderate weather between Cobourg and Toronto, but rough weather nearer Kingston.

The new schooner reported ashore at 'The Brothers,' is one that was built this season on the river below Kingston. We have not heard her name. She is driven so far up on the bar that it is impossible to get her off this fall, and she will have an easy berth for the winter.

The schooner Mountaineer, which was taken off the rocks at Cedar Island on Monday night, left in tow for Ogdensburg yesterday evening. She did not discharge the whole of her cargo as reported.

Disasters On the Bay of Quinte - The following telegram informs us of two further vessel accidents up the Bay:-

Belleville, Nov. 5th - The schooner Mayflower, of Port Dover, Capt. Martin, was driven ashore last night in the Bay of Quinte, 8 miles below this place, loaded with rye, bound to Oswego. The captain thinks she can be got off with a tug.

The schooner Mary Ann, of Belleville, was driven ashore on Sunday night by the gale on Telegraph Island, in the Bay of Quinte, about fifteen miles east of this place. She was light and is badly on. The water is much lower than when she went ashore.
