niuoty-six houses was destroyed and four
persoi killed. At Loiza, twelty-seven
hutises.were destroyed. At Agnasbuezins,
all the buildings were destroyed and soven
porsons were killed. A t Rio Grande, elev
en persons were killed, forty houses blown
dcwn, nearly all the cattle killed and the
crops entirely ruined. At Corozal, fortY.
five houses were overthrown. Fajardo was
entirely destroyed and tlhirteen persons
woro killed. The plantations in the vicini.

At Tabucoa the hurricano was of but
short duration but the damago was im

and have lost everything. At Piodras
thero are soventeen houses in ruins. Two
tires occurred thero, but they wero speedi
ly extinguished. At Patillas many houses
wore destroyed and two persons wore kill
At Ceiba seventy.sovon houses and the
church were destroyed. Maunabo is a

the church, governinent house, military
barricks., iaid warehouses are in ruins. On
hlie prntatIions the cropis as well as tihe
sugar-houses are destroyed. In the harbor
the schooner 1-iabell 11. was sunk and seven
of her crew perished ; these and ono person
in the town were the only ones to porish.
A To Deum was sung on the 31st. The
Spanish war steamer Vasco de Balboa,
which was at St. Thomas during the hurri

without suffering much damage, arrived

ask pecuniary assistance from the Cubans.

portion of the island, and status that thero

destituto and depe'nding for the present on

lives. The sugar aid coffee crops are en
tirely destroyed, and not on1' are the sugar
a ad coffee factories in ruius, but in many
o me the machinery, steam engines, &c.,
are completely lost. Subscriptions had
been opened in all parts of the island, and
thus Ifar the results had been very satis
ftactory. In Port o Itlo, $2,316 were sub
scribed the first day. There had been a
meeting of the authorities, and it had been
proposed to furnish farmcra withl seed for
corn and potatoes free of oharge ; to do
dway wlth duties for six months on beet,
flour, codfish, rice and corn meal, and also
that one year be given to the owners of
plantations wheroin to pay taxes now due.
A proposition was also made to admit
American flour duty free for two months.
The Captain General has all these matters
under consideration, and was to act upon
them at an early day. Directly after the
arrival of the Donor Rosano the Captain
(heneral called a meeting of the different
editors of this oity and informed theni of the
nission of that gentleman and its objoot,
requesting them to use Ihe influence of their
respectivo journals in its furtherance, an
torizing them to receive subscriptions.
't'he subscription lists were at once prepar

The loss of life was much greater here
than was at first supposed. Ono thousand is
the number now announced, but as seven
hundred and sixty three have already been
wvashed ashoro by the waves, my impression
is that the total will greatly exceed that
number. It. was found impossible to give
burial to all, therefore huge fires have been
built, and many of the bodies are being
burned to prevent putrefaction. Of the
eight. steamutrs lost, six belonged to the
lioyal Mail 8teamnship Company. The loss
of the company is osttmnated at $12,000,
