The Gkeat Stozm. The rain-storm of
Isst week was exceedingly wide spread, and
in many places verv severe At Indianapolis
there was never such a flood since the place
was settled. For several days only two rail
roads going out of Cincinnati were run
ning, and upon almost every railroad in Ohio
and Indiana bridges were carried awuv, and
trcstlcwork broken down. Over the great
oorn-GcIda on the Little Miami river tic
water covered the tallest cornstalks, and im
mense damage was done. Scioto river,
in Ohio, rose higher than it ever was before,
and Iionitvillc, Ky., was completely sub
merged Several schooner were diivcn
ashore in lake Michigan, and several per
sons are reported to have been drownccL
Three men were diowned at Indianapolis,
and no doubt other deaths will Lc reported.
