p.2 On Sunday last it blew a gale from the south, so that even the vessels at our wharves appeared not altogether out of danger; by the attention of the crews to their moorings all serious damage has been prevented. During the whole severity of the gale the St. George and Commodore Barrie, steamers, commanded by Captains Harper and Patterson, were on their way from Toronto, along a lee shore, and by what we learn from respectable passengers, these vessels and their Captains proved themselves worthy of their stations. On Monday, during the greater part of the day, the gale was redirected from the west so much that it is feared the shipping interest has suffered on the Lake, although, as yet, we have heard of no disaster.
