In this city, on the 19th inst., Mr. William B. BENJAMIN to Miss Frances T. FARLEY, all of this place.
LAKE ONTARIO. - The late gale, so far as we have been able to learn, has not been attended with any disastrous consequences on Lake Ontario. The steamer Rochester, Captain H.N. THROOP, left the landing at 8 o'clock, Friday evening, bound for Toronto and Lewiston. She encountered a gale about half way between this port and Toronto, and was obliged to put about and return.
Her escape is almost miraculous as she was out during the whole of the gale - which was the severest ever known on this lake. Capt. THROOP reports having seen a vessel or propeller almost 40 miles west of the mouth of the river, (Genesee), and from one to two miles from shore, running before the wind. he think it was a propeller, as occasionally he saw sparks. he also reports a bright red light, during the severest part of the gale, in the direction of Coburg or below.
Fears are entertained for the safety of the Gore, which runs between Hamilton, Toronto and Rochester, which was due here at 7 o'clock on Saturday. Also for the St. Lawrence, which left the mouth of the river at 2 o'clock Saturday morning, bound for Oswego and Ogdensburgh. The Oneida due here on Saturday at 4 o'clock P.M., has not been heard from. If she was out she probably encountered the gale between Sackets Harbor and Oswego.
The America, due here yesterday morning at 3 o'clock, has not been heard from.
