p.3 A Heavy Blow

-Yesterday's gale was severely felt in the harbour. The following accidents are reported in consequence of it:

Schr. Starling had her main and fore sails blown to pieces.

Schr. Trade Wind had her jibboom injured.

Schr. Mary Annette ran foul of the schr. Marysburg, breaking her jibboom and doing some other slight damage.

Schr. W.H. Oades ran back from Four Mile Point and lost her main mast in the storm.

Schr. J. Stevenson dragged at South Bay Point. Her captain slipped her anchors, and ran to Garden Island for shelter, and having procured chains returned to South Bay to grapple for her lost anchors.

Mr. Calvin's little pleasure yacht, Derial, 26 feet long, made a sensation this morning by coming to the city and towing the schr. Jessie H. Breck to Garden Island. The yacht is speedy and powerful. Her engine is capable of being worked up to 800 revolutions a minute but the experiment is seldom tried.
