Severe gale at New Haven.

New Haven, Conn., Nov. 5.
--A severe gale from the East visited the city last evening, commencing about 5 o'clock, and ending about 11 o'clock. Many trees were prostrated, and the steeple of the Wooster Place Church (Second Baptist) was thrown upon the square. Its height was 240 feet. The bell, porch, entablature columns and other front works also fell, crushing the iron fence around the church, but doing little other damage. Had the steeple fell to the north or south, it would have crushed two or three private mansions. The loss is four or five thousand dollars.

Young Stafford, who was stabbed by the student Belden, died at 7 o'clock this evening.
