The whole eastern part of Itetissalaer County,
N. Y., was deluged by n cloudhmst on Friday,
Auc.Srt, which made raging torrents of streams
and cawed them to leave destruction iu their
path. Glas I-ake overflowed and sent u torrent
through WynanUkill, and throe dams were
washed away at Sand h.ike, a damage of 1 100,000
was done to mills, and several houses were
washed away. Pridgos along streams were
torn from their fastenings, and it is estimated
that the damage will reach $500,000.
At iSerliti the flood did damage unparalleled
in that vicinity. P.iin fell all day, but at 5
o'clock p. m. thu water fell in torrents, lasting
au hour and alarming tho community, and
those who were iu dangerous localities sought
daces of safety. Had tlio cloud burst after tho
people had gmia to bed the loss of life would
have been awful. Mrs. Taylor was drowned iu
her home iu sight of her husband, who was
outside, and who could uot get through thu
current Ui save her. A man named Smith was
found dead, btauditig iu mud up to his neck,
horribly mangled. The railroad between llerlin
and Petersburg, n distance of five miles, is
washed away into tho meudowH, and a large
railroad bridge is gone, besides many more
highway Li idgea. Irreparable damage has been
done, tho meadows are itiiuiHl. and the crops on
thu line of the flood are destroyed.

Tho Governor of tho Island of Martinique,
recently visited by fearful htirricnno which
resulted iu tho loss of ovor 3o0 lives, tho iujury
of over a thousand people, and which caused
immense damage throughout tho Colony, has
sent by telegraph an appeal asking holp for tho
sutlcring people of Martinique. It is report
ed tho Empress of Austria shows symptoms
of insanity. Hio is very occcntric, desiring
bizarre costttmis, and indulging in other od
dities. Tho nmlaily is hereditary. Tho Duchoss
d'Alcncon, a sister of tho Ktnpres, is in an iu
sauo asylum at Gratz, and tho mad King of
Havana is a consin of tho Empress. Tho
now Cunard steamships will be much liko thojo
of tho North German Lloyd. They will havo
a guaranteed speed of 21 kaoU in an open sea,
and are extcctil to complcto a voyage in fivo
days. A prominent Loudon taiper says that
with tho bad prospects and the poor crops in
Europe and India, it is likely that America
will make importers pay still prices for their
grain. It is reported in Paris that Henry E.
Abbey is negotiating fur the purchase of tho
Mariposa, a fast steamer, to convey Mute. Bern
hardt and thu company ho has engaged as her
suppurt in thetr tour around the world.
The otlicial program of festivities in honor of
the French lleet was concluded at Portsmouth,
England. Tho Duke of Camhridgo held tho
annual review of the troops, tho Duke of Con
naught commanding. Iu the evening Admiral
Gorvais entertained memlwrsof the royal fam
ily and English officers of high rank on bonrd
tho French flagship. I'rinco Hismarck has
puitly written his intended book, and a synop
sis of five chapters has lieen printed iu the
Paris papers, 'i hee chapters relate almost ex
clusively to his Emlta-isy iu France, to his mis
sion iu Kussin in lhfKJ, to the lierlin Congress,
and to his retirement from work. A revival
of piracy is reported iu tho Eastern Mediterra
nean. Vessels trading with the Levant havo
therefoio been ordered to carry guns of small
caliber and other arm?. KejKrt come from
India to the ciiert that trouble is brewing.
A iiiimlier of largo cities aro ready to burst
into sedition. The disaffected have lost that
wholosome refpect for llrilish authority which
was sufficient for three decades to keep tho
jieace. Any deliberate attempt to foment open
sedition maj readily succeed. Five hundred
aimed pirates are creating havoc in the Prov
ince of YVeuchow, China. Villages havo been
burned right and left by them when refused
hospitality, and tho inhabitants, men, women
and children, slaughtered by tho miscreants.
Tho object of the pirates seems to bo to capture
iiifineutinl people and hold them for ransom.
The only surviving ollicer of the battlu of
Wntcnoo, Gen. Wiiichcoto, died in London
Aug. 25. Tho Czar is now surrounded with
more rest riot ion than on all previous visits to
Denmark. Rumors aro rife of fear of Nihil
istic plotting. It is known to the Itussiati
police that many of the exiled Hebrews swore
vengeance against tho Czar after they had got
safely beyond tho frontier, nnd that these.
threats were not passing expressions of auger.
Tho census returns of Canada indicate a
population of C.OOO.000 for the entire Dominion.
All thu provinces show gains except Prince
Edward Inland, Quebec, and New Brunswick,
which show a decreuse. Manitoba has grown
from 00,000 to 1.10.000 in 10 yoars, and Winni
peg from 8,000 to 20.000. All cities in the
Dominion show gams, but 11111113' of tho eouutry
districts show losses. Ihu poor growth has
raised renewed talk there of annexation.
A tremendous hurricane prevailed throughout
Groat Britain last week. Everywhere tho
telegraph wires aro prostrated. Iu and alio ut
London and man' ontsido places, trees wcro
dragged out of tho ground by their roots, and
the roofs of houses ripjted otr and hurled into

Hundreds have been unable to obtain bread
for weeks, and in their oflbrts to sustain life
they havo been compelled to cat grass ami

Secretary Husk in an interview said: "Wo will
have our ork on the European markets in a
very short time. Everything is favorable for
our packers to place their products before tho
Eiiiopeans. The small crops of cereals in the
Euroeau countries and tho financial troubles
iu Great Britain will necessitate the admit

larger sale of many of our products than ever

Tho Chilean Civil War.
Tho news from Cliilo for the past week has
been vory conflicting, tho dispatches being
quito contradictory. Tho news roeoived by the
Chilean Minister at Washington wag to tho
oilect that President Italmacoda's fercoa had
gained important victories, while representa
tives of tho Congressional party claim to havo
received advices giving thoir forces the best of
tho recent battles. But the United States
Consul at Valparaiso telegraphed the State De
partment, on Aug. 23, that in the engagement
near that city on that date, the Government
(Balmaceda's) forces woro badly beaten, with
heavy loss on both aidca, and that Valparaiso
had surrendered to the Congressional party's
forces, but was in tho hands of the Admirals
of tho American, German, French, and English
flcet3 for good order and protection. of prop
erty. Mr. Pedro Montr, tho principal Con
gressional envoy to this country, who lives in
Washington, rccotved a dispatch stating that
Ihilmaccda's forces were defeated twice on Aug.
2?. After the second battle the Congressional
forces remained outside the City of VaIparaio,
and turned the city over to the German Ad
miral, who immediately delivered the town
over to the CongresdionulisU. who marched in
and took possession. Kear-Admir.il Brown,
commanding tho South Pacific station, tele
graphed the Navy Department, on Aug. 2!,
that tho Congressional ists had possession of
Valparaiso, and had captured the ironclad
Lynch and three torpedo-boats. Balmaceda is
in hiding, and several power are preparing to
acknowledge the Congressioualists as belligerents.
The i:.ilii'l'oi!UWIIcr a SarceRs.
Mr. Dyren forth, in chnrgo of the Weither
Bureau's sky-storniers in Midland County, Tev.,
made tho final test on Thursday, Aug. 27,
v'htch resulted in a victory for the scientists in
their efforts to shake water from the bnrmnic
wind3 of otio of the driest regions in tho
United States. With nntirtng energy the party
have overcome almost insurmountable ob
stacles. Tho most powerful enemy they havo
had to encounter was the fierce winds which
sweep over the vast plains of Texas. The force
of a gale on a balloon is very great, several of
tho captivo balloons having been torn from
their fastenings, or the strong meshes of the
netting3 rent as though made of cobwebs. For
three weeks an intermittent scries of tests have
been carried on, and in not a single instance
has rnin failod to full within 10 or 12 hours.
The tests wcro brought to a climax on Thurs
day, when balloons containing several thousand
feet of oxyhydrogen gas were sent up and c x-
nlculfwl nf liifhfa vnrtrinrr frnm 1 OAO tn intiTlO
j footf aml at 8UIiown butteries on the ground
j boKan tncir work nnd until 10:30 p. rn. a con-
taut cannonade was carried on under a sky of
perfect clearness, lit by countless stars of a
brilliancy seldom seen in tho North. The. ba
rometer promised fair and the hygrometer
stood between dry and very dry. Cowboys and
ranchmen said it would be useless to hope for
rnin for a week under such conditions. At 11
p. ni. the forces of Mr. Dyrenforth withdrew
from the contest, and all retired for the night.
Sleep, however, was soon interrupted, for at 3
a. ni. the first return fire flashed from tho
heavens, when the rain-makers were roused by
a crashing pool of thunder, and the rain was
soon beating on tho roof. At sunrtac a mag
niflceut double rainbow arched the heaven,
and the downfall of raiu did uot cease till H a.
in. A number of heavy discharges of dyna
mite wcro then made, and after evory one tho
drops again poured down, till at last tho clouds
Were entirely expended and there was nothing
left from which to shake the water.
5cTrarb, ". J., TNIted by a Cyclone.
A cyclone swept over part of Newark, N. J.,
on the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 2-, which
caused great loss of property. The storm came
up with frightful velocity and without warn
ing. Tho sky was nearly clear, bnt ono cloud,
somewhat dense and durk, came sailing along
from the direction in which the wmd was
blowing, and descended on the soathoaat sec
tion of the city. At the Tomltnson Company's
Spring works, a two-inch thick glass skylight
was smashed, and a heavy gate iu the yard
was picked up and hurled through tho air.
An unoccupied thrco-story brick building was
demolished. Tin roofs and window-blinds were
blown from many houses, and the nir fill ex I
with debris. Several persons were struck with
flying boards and injured, hut no fatal cases
have been reported. It was one of tho most
sevcro wind-storms that ever visited Newark.
