On Tuesday night it blew a violent gale from the southeast, for about ten hours. The U. States schr. Gallatin in attempt­ing to get to the wharf, was driven on shore; her tender, the Gazelle, was driven high and dry upon the beach, and nearly all the copper on her starboard side washed off. The smack Bruce, in coming into the harbor, dropt her an­chor, but as we understand did not have her cable secured, and consequently, went ashore between Coffin’s and Commercial wharf. She got off without much damage, yesterday. A considerable part of the railing on the bridge leading to the Light House was blown down — Several fences were prostrated, and many shingles blown from the roofs of houses. We have heard of no other damage but suppose the vessels within reach of its fury suffered Much.
