A TERRIBLE STORM.
Causes Great Destruction In Several Place
In the East.
One of the heaviest rain falls ever known
in that section descended at Chicago a lew
dayB ago. The total rainfall in twelve hours
was five and fifty-eight one-hundredth
inches, an inch more than the actual rain
fall during the month of August in thelaat
three years, and the greatest fall within the
time specified on record. The fall was
so great and rapid that the sewers were un
able to carry off the volume of water. The
damage to basements was heavy. The base
ments and cellars more than ten feet in
depth, soon contained two or three fet of
water. Numberless families were forced to
leave their basements, in which they re
sided, and seek temporary lodging in the
apartments above the level of the street. Of
the residence streets Huron was most con
spicuous in this respect; tenants of many
basements of dwellings being compelled to
leave their homes. The basements and cel
lars throughout the portion of the south
side where wholesale houses are situated
were filled with water to the depth of sev
eral feet. The loss throughout that district
was very heavy .though no estimate could b
L050"TKE BZLAWABE RIVER.
At the same time the above storm devas
tated Chicago, one of similar nature caused
great destruction aloDg the Delaware river.
It visited the vicinity of Smyrna, Delaware,
tot illy destroying property for miles in its
path of 300 feet wide. Stock was killed,
orchards, cornfields, etc., were destroyed.
No lives are known to hare been loet. .
It struck Philadelphia near Greenwich
Point, demolishing a portion of the works
of the Pennsylvania Salt Man m factoring
companv and injuring several employes.
It then took a course across the Delaware
river, wrecking the river steamer, Mejor
Reybold, and the ferry boat, Peerless, and
the' storm blew the pilot, of the
Emory Townsend. and the captain
bold, of the steamer Rsybold, into the livtr,
drowning the former and painfully injur
ing the captain. The Peerless was swept
clean almost to the water's edge. When the
Major Reybold left her dock for Salem she
had on board about fifty passengers, al
though, as no tickets had been sold,
it is impossible to ascertain the exact num
ber there were aboard excepting the four
teen officers and deck hands. Of this num
ber of people upon the wrecked boat, itdoea
not appear that any lives were lost, except
that of the pilot. A steam tug coming np
the river after the disaster, reports that the
body of a woman was seen floating in the
river, near the spot where the cyclone
struck the steamboat, bit she sank out of
sight and could not be found, when the tug
was mBk-ng search for her. B. J. Warner
one of the passengers, deocribes the scene:
He was standing on the upper deck and saw
the black cloud approach irg,but as it moved
rather slowly he supposed it was a rain
storm; when it struck the boat he discovered
that its immense force came from its rotary
motion. He and several others were thrown
through a hole to the lower deck and all
the upper works were swept away like
chaff, and the confusion among thepasaen
eers was indescribable. Several of thenx
jamped into the river, but Mr. Warner be
lieves all of them were rescued. WinJet lie
cyclone was upon the vessel everything was
as black as the blackest night. Sofas were
broken into splinters and carpets torn to
shreds in the cabin, as if they had been pa
per. The cyclone, he thinks, lasted about
a minute, and after it passed the vessel
rolled and pitched frightfully in the great
waves ana came near swamping. The
storm then passed over to the Jersey
side, striking a ship yard and destroy
ing buildings of the establishment. It then
took a course along the New Jersey river
front, demolishing all the buildings in its
path up to Bridge avenue, Camden. At
this point the cyclone took an easterly di
rection to Fifth street, Camden, embracing:
in the path all that section of the .city be
tween Second and F.fth streets to the Dela
ware river, which is in the northern sect-Ion
of the city. Passing over the rvar skirting:
Pettis island the Btorm passed over that
part of the Twenty fifth ward of Philadel
phia known as Richmond. The cyclone
was the most destructive that ever occurred
in the eastern states.
