THE GALE OF LAST WEEK. (From the Liverpool Telegraph) We believe we speak without exaggeration when we say that the 25th and 26th of October has engraved a melancholy line in the annals of maritime disasters. For the time the gale lasted it was, perhaps, the most de- structive of any storm since the beginning of this cen- tury, the loss of vessels and life being most appalling whilst its devastating fury continued. We speak in re- ference to those whose fate is beyond conjecture, but, to swell the total, numbers of unfortunate craft have foundered with their crews, leaving only floating frag- ments for the mind to guess at a fate not to be revealed in time. The actual loss to the shipping intereat on the 25th and 26th of October, 1859, is beyond all conception, and perhaps without parallel within living recollection. To give our readers some idea of the destructive fury of the gale in question, we give below, collected with g. eat care, so as to be as accurate as possible, a list of the vessels that were totally lost only, in the now memorable late gale, with an account of the crews all drowned, partly saved, and all saved. We have omitted including the vessels that have suffered damage only by being driven on shore in that gale, for the reason that the list would then exceed more than double its present length, and far beyond our available space. As will be seen, the loss in human life during the 25th & 26th of last month is most melancholy indeed.

It is only just we should acknowledge—and what place more fitting-the noble assistance it bos rendered in the cause of humanity, for through its timely aid many of the crews recorded above as saved were snatched from death by its excellent boats. May the institution meet with all the support it so eminently deserves.
