THE GALE. – During the whole of yesterday, up to a few minutes after 4 P.M. the wind blew strong from the southward, and at that time hauled in a moment to north west, and blew with tremendous force. The scow NEBRASKA, in the harbor, had her jib-boom knocked off by coming in contact with the propeller RACINE, and her stern jammed in by the scow SUNSHINE, which came in during the squall. – Cleveland Herald, 29th.
