Memphis, March 28. Details of the de
struction wrought by Thursday's storm
are coming in slowly and the death and
injured roll is growing very large. The
storm crossed the Mississippi a few miles
above Greenville, devastating plantations,
wrecking farm houses and uprooting giant
forest trees. The path of the storm was
about half a mile wide and nothing was
lelt standing in its track. The first fatal
ity occurred near Shaw's Station, Miss.,
where the house of Drury Sumral, a pros
perous and industrious colored farmer,
was levelled to the ground, killing the en
tire family of nine persons. The cyclone
passed through the suburbs of Shaws and
demolished several residences and small
stores, but no one was killed.
Tunica Nearly a Total Wreck. j
The hurricane then changed its course
Slightly and traveled the right of-way of
the Yazoo and Mississippi railway until it
entered Cleveland, Miss., where the pub- j
lie school building and teveral houses and
stores were razed to the ground. No fatal
ities occurred at Cleveland, but severs f
people were struck by flying timbers and
more or less injured. Reaving Cleveland f

BARON IN A BAD BOX.
One of the Prince of Wales Set Sentsaoed
to Fine or Prison.
London, March 25. George, Manners
Astley, who has a seat in the, bouse of
lords as Baron Hastings, wat arraigned at
the Marley police court yesterday-oT a'
charge of having insulted a girl in Regent's
park. His lordship, who is abqut 85 years
of age, looked very much ashamed as ha
was called up to answer the charge. The
evidence of his disgraceful conduct was bo
clear that the court found him guilty and
sentenced him to pay a line of 50 or be
imprisoned for three months.
A Disgrace to Ills Position.
The case has caused a great sensation,
as Astley moves in the Prince of Wales
set and the Princess of Wales stood spon
sor for his daughter Alexandra. The baron
is a captain of the Second brigade of the
eastern division of the royal artillery and a
justice of the peace for the county of Nor
folk. He married a daugter of the fifth
Lord Suffield, and has five children.
