Marine Disasters

The gale on Wednesday night last was very severely felt on Lake Ontario, and a number of disasters are reported.

The schooner Langmuir, of Picton, Capt. Watters, went ashore on the Galloup Islands south west of the Main Ducks, and it is feared will prove a total wreck. Her cargo consisted of lumber from Buck's mills, Belleville, the greater portion of which, we understand, will be saved.

The scow Ally, of Brighton, went ashore near Pultneyville, on the south shore, about twelve miles east of Genesee, and was expected to prove a total loss. Her cargo consisted of ties.

The scow John A. Macdonald, of Toronto, lost one anchor and broke the other, off Presque Isle, and was obliged to run for Oswego. Capt. Maybee of the Florence, who was out in the gale, reports it was one of the most severe he ever experienced, and we need not be surprised to hear of other disasters. The Florence weathered it nicely, coming into port here this afternoon. [Intelligencer]
