Weymouth 10 Nov 1825 It has been blowing a tremendous gale from the N.E., the whole night. There are two schooners and five fore-and-aft vessels on shore near Portland Castle. The gale continues with unabated fury ; about 20 sail got under weigh at the first start of the gale and bore away to the westward. The only vessels now riding in Portland Roads are the Rose, revenue cutter, the Royal Louis, from Guadaloupe for Havre.
