rams. A Terrible Cyclone Sweeps Over a Por tion of Mississippi. TWO VILLAGES DESTROYED. Over Forty Persons Killed in the IState and Many Badly Injured. SCENES OF APPALLING TERROR. Houses, Fences and Manufactories Hurled to the Ground. IMMENSE LOSS OF PROPERTY. The Most Violent Storm Ever Expe rienced at the South. WEasOK, Miss., April 23.—A frightful cyclone passed, over Wesson and the town of Beauregard a tile above about _ o'clock this afternoon. The wind the last three days was blowing a gale, and lower ing clouds indicated a storm. Its ap proach was known for some minutes by deep.rumbling sound?. Windows in dwell ings were shaken with violence, and many thought it was an earthquake. The thuu dor roared, the lightning flashed with alarming force and vividness, fences were torn down, trees uprooted and cast a hundred yards away. East of the railroad in Wesson the damage was light, but in a portion of the town the damage was awful in its character. As soon as the storm had somewhat abated, and people be gan to look about, the loud peal of church bells rung out. People were seen running in all directions toward West Wesson. The rain meantime was pouring in torrents. Reaching Peach Orchard street an indescribable scene was witnessed. This street is lined with houses in which the operatives of Mississippi mills are domiciled, and here the greatest destruction occurred. People were seen on all sides sobbing, and the groans of the wounded beneath the ruins were perfectly appalling. The dwellings were torn to atoms. The pino forest just beyond was blown out of existence. The work of re moving the dead and extricating the wounded from the ruins then began. Cal vin Reed, living in the vicinity, died from the excitement. Doctors Lexten, Rease and Butler were soon upon the scene and did all in their power to relieve the suffer ings of the wounded. The estimated num ber of the killed is twelve. Two or three children are missing ; 150 or 200 dwellings are blown down. Tho number of people with broken limbs is estimated by physi cians at seventy-five. The wounded were removed as fast as possible to the houses which escaped injury. Several dead lay out in the violent rain more than an hour after the storm. The dead are now all laid out and coffins are being made for them. The mills will not run to-day. The citizens are doing all in their power for the wounded. Many, it is feared, will die. A special train with physicians from Ma comb City and Brookhaven arrived last evening at 7 o'clock. Another extra special will be here with additional help from Magnolia and Summit. Some of these physicians go to Beauregard, where the destruction to life and property is simply indescribable. Among the killed in Wesson are Mrs. Courty and two children; several children of J. E. Gibson, all of whom were found crushed under a chimney. Two persons were so mangled as to be unrecognizable, and several others whose names could not be obtained in the confusion. A little boy was found in the woods several hundred yards away unhurt. Wesson, except in the locality mentioned, suffered little except in the general destruction of trees and fences. The dead will be buried to morrow. Beauregard was visited last evening. It is only a mile above here, and lay in the direct path of the cyclone. The scene is absolutely appalling. Beauregard is no more. It is in truth a mass of ruins. It is with difficulty that one can ride through, so thickly and the trees strewn across the road. There is not a house of any charac ter standing in the place. The two brick stores, Thompson & Co.. and L. Daniel & Co., the largest in the place, were swept away, and timber scattered for mile* around; even out in the country two and a half miles the dwellings are swept away. The following is a list of the dead and wounded: John Ross, mortally; James Morton Story, killed; Morgan James, mortally; Isaac Bloom, seriously; M. M. Daniels, mortally; Mr. Turnbull, of Brook haven, fatally; Capt. Lampkins, wife and child, all dead; George Ilolliwell, mortally wounded; Mrs. HalliwaY. leg broken. The depot was swept away and nothing of it now remains. Wilcox, both arms broken; A. J. Ferguson and family, including ten persons, dangerously wounded; Mr. Albert G. Pierce and child, mortally, their house fell on them; J. O. Williams, killed. St. Louis, April —A special from New Orleans about tbe cyclone which destroyed Wesson and Beauregard, Miss., yesterday, gives particulars of the storm in addition to those contained in the Associated Press report, but they say Beauregard is a small town in Copiah county, on the New Or leans, St. Louis <_ Chicago railroad, 444 miles southwest of Jackson, with a popu lation of 400 to 500. Wesson, a more im portant place on the same road, one mil. from Beauregard, a sort of summer re sort for people of New Orleans, has a pop ulation of 1,000 and a large cotton and woolen factory employing 600 hands. ANOinUE ACCOUNT. Jackson, Miss., April 23.—At four o'clock yesterday evening a fearful cyclone passed over Beauregard and Wesson, contiguons towns, forty miles below here, on the New Orleans railroad. The wind had been blowing a gale for three days. A rumbling sound and violent shaking cf houses heralded the approach of the cyclone and caused intelligent people to believe it was an earthquake. Then| thunder, lightning, wind and rain came with terrific force, sweeping everything in their path. In the western part of Wesson fences were torn down, trees that had stood storms for ages were uprooted and hurled many yards; houses where the operatives of the Missis sippi mills were domiciled, were demol ished, and a pine forest adjacent to the town blown out of existence. At this hour thirteen are known to be killed, and the wounded are estimated at seventy-five. Several are missing and fifteen or twenty dwellings are blown down. The eastern portion is not much damaged. Among the killed aud wounded in Wesson are: Mrs.Causey; two children of J. F. Gibson, one of whom was found crushed under a chimney; two persons, so mangled an not to be recognizable, and other names not ascertained.

The destruction to life and property is indescribable and appalling, not a house of any kind being left stand ing. Largo brick buildings were blown down, frame houses torn to atoms, trees swept away like straws and loaded freight cars lifted from the track and carried two hundred yards. Trees and timber from the houses are scattered for miles around. The town could not be recognized. One gloomy, ghastly mass of desolation and destruction marks the spot of what wa3 once a beautiful and flourishing little village. The killed, as far a-? ascertained, are Milton Story: Dr. Beatton and wife"; Capt Lampkim, wife and child; J. O. Williams; Dr. Luther Jones' entire family of six, whose bodies were found 300 yards from J their residence, and ail near each other, J except one child not yet found; Miss Georgia Mitchell; Rev. J. Green, of Crystal I Springs; Mr. Keating, of Wesson; Miss Lula Benton; John Terrell; Mr. Loudefer, I whose wife cannot be found; Willie White, I son of F. J. White, and three negroes, j names unknown. A party of several ne groes, who were playing cards in a box-car which was standing in a cut as deep as the car was high, were carried, car and all, over a two-story house 200 yards into the woods. The wounded are: John Ross, mortally, and his wife, it is feared mortally Morgan Jayner, mortally; Mrs. Westerfield, mor tally; Isaac Bloom, seriously; a son of M. Daniels is dying; M.

Dunn and wife, mortally, and were found in tho furnace of a variety works, 200 yards from their residence; William Parker, wife and child, mortally; Mrs. Pitts, seriously; and Mrs. Polk Ferguson, badly. The variety works were leveled, and the prop erty loss in Beauregard is not less than ! $250,000. The same storm, before reaching Beau regard, struck Tillman depot on the Natchez & Jackson railroad, and a dwelling place, killing Mr. Baggett, and wounding Calvin Phillips, Tillman depot on Mrs. ;ehez & Jackson railroad, and a dwelling cc, killing Mr. Baggett, and wounding yin Phillips, Miss Covington and Mrs. rgett. The storm proceeded in a north easterly direction, destroying a number of houses in Lawrence, on the Vicksburg & Meridian railroad, and thence to Aberdeen, where the damage is not stated. This was an unlucky day, sure, for our people, as on the last 22d of April Monti cello was destroyed exactly at the same hour. The citizens of Jackson held a meeting this afternoon and appropriated §465 for the relief of the sufferers. REVISED LIST OF _I__ED AND WOUNDED.

All along the train of the tornado reports of destruction and disaster continue. So far as heard from only nine or ten lives were lost.

SEBIOUS LAND SLIDE. NERVOUSNESS. The Prevailing Feeling on the Chicago Board of Trade Yesterday. TRADING (ACTIVE IN ALL GRAINS. Fluctuations Cover a Wider Range than Usual of Late. PRICES PRETTY WELL SUSTAINED. A Firmer Feeling in Provisions—Stocks in New York Dull. CHICAGO. . [Special Telegram to the Globe. Chicago, April 23.The markets to-day ! were active and excited, with values un settled and irregular. The conditions fa vored additional strength with grainm ar-. ket.«, but local influences were paramount and counteracted the early effect of firmer foreign advices. An immense quantity of long wheat was unloaded by parties who had a profit on purchases made before Saturday's upward jump, and this checked the advance and forced prices below the opening quotations. Corn followed wheat in its fluctuations, but provisions were very strong, and made another sharp up turn. Heavy buying in expectatation of higher prices and quite a general dispo sition among the short interest to cover deals are responsible -for the course taken by hog preducts. Trading was active in the wheat pit on the board and the market, under specula tive influences was decidedly unsettled, with prices ruling very irregular. The market opened at about the closing figures Saturday, but soon weakened, and prices declined about }_@%c. Later under an active speculative demand, with shorts buying freely, prices were advanced lj£@ l%c. Large offerings, however, were thrown upon the market at this advance, and under a strong pressure to sell, prices declined I3_@l%c, fluctuated and finally closed about %a lower for May, J^o lower for June, and J_o lower for July than the closing figures on 'change Saturday. . Re ceipts were moderate and the foreign mar ket reports quoted a firmer feeling. On the call board the unloading press was continued and values forced down }£o further. The aggregate transac tions on the call were a million and a half bushels, of which the June and July deliveries furnished over a half million bushels each. May closed at $1.11% 1.11 Spring wheat was quiet to-day, the offerings continuing light. Winter was in small request, little offered and very quiet. Flour held steady at former prices. There was a trifle more inquiry, but tho trading continues chiefly on local account and generally in choice grades of spring and winter flour. Exporters purchased a few lots, but mainly held aloof. Holders continue very independent. Trading in corn on the board was also active, chiefly on speculative account, and the feeling unsettled, accompanied with a higher range of prices. Receipts were only fair and market advices favorable, but the market was controlled principally by speculation. The market opened at about the closing figures of Saturday, ruled a little unsettled,then rallied about %c, but later under free speculative offerings declined l*£c, fluctuated and fianlly closed about %c lower May, %a lower June and %c lower July than closing prices Satur day. The call trade was active, but at a trifle weaker prices. May ended the day at 4%@4%c. Oats were quiet and inclined to dullness. There were good receipts. Sample lots were in consequence offered quite freely. The supply, in fact, was somewhat in ex cess of the demand and prices were easier. Besides, consignments were not so readily closed out as last week. Cash oats on the regular market were dull. There was no demand in particular. Trading in the futures was light, and interest in the speculative market appears to be on the wane. Prices on the board were generally J£@J_° lower than on Saturday, and closed weak at in side quotations. Afternoon dealings showed no improvement, but rather the reverse. Rye was firm and higher. The offerings were extremely light, and the natural stif fening in sympathy with other markets was not lost in the reaction. Cash rye sold one cent better on the boards, and deliveries at about J£c advance. There was a fair demand, and sellers were scarce. June showed most strength. The after noon feeling was quiet, but 3-4 c better figures had to be given than on the board. Barley was very quiet; about the only demand was from the local maltsters and brewers, i These buyers took only sample lots, of which the supply was about mod - crate and prices exhibited no essential change. The in store, cash and specula tive market was devoid of demands and offerings, and was in consequence inactive and nominal. Provisions opened the week with an ac tive movement and a continuance in Sat urday's advance in prices. The feeling, however, was somewhat nervous and the day's changes in prices were comparative ly frequent. Lard commanded more at tention than usual, and rather divided with pork the interest developed. Short sales were also traded in freely for future de livery. A higher range of prices was es tablished all around. Pork was active, irregular and higher, closing at an advance of 40@450. Early sales were made at the lowest prices of the day. The upward movement was a little nervous and fluctuations caused a wider range than on Saturday. May and the later months were the favorite deals with traders. Cash was quiet and April slow. Lard was unusually active. It fairly di vided with pork he attention of traders, and the session's business aggregated a large volume. Prices wero higher and at the close the market ruled 12)^@15c better than on Saturday. Both pork and lard held steady during the afternoon, although on the ball some sales of the former were made at 2}4@50 less! than 1 o'clock quota tions.) Hogs opened the week with a firmer feeling. Some 9,400 were received to-day, mostly of inferior quality. The market ruled strong and aotive and 10c higher, the range being between $ 7.20 7.90. NEW YORK. [Special Telegram to the Globe.] New Yobk, April 23. —The day has been rather a dull and uneventful one in Wall street. Reports of continued cold and stormy weather in the Northwest had an unfavorable effect on speculation. The weakest spot was in Wabash preferred. It sold at 47J^, though jest before the close it was advanced 1 per cent. Northwestern holds remarkably steady, and does not yield as the sellers of it would wish. There has been much bear talk, though it availed but little, and during the closing half hour there was a good deal of strength in sev eral properties. Manitoba continues to be a favorite, and as an 8 per cent, stock does not look unreasonable at present fig ures. It has been a poor day for rumors, and the board room traders for the present seem to control the situation. ENGLISH GRAIN MARKETS. London, April 23. — The Mark Lane Ex press, in its review of the British grain trade tho past week says: Tho wheat crop is materially improved during the week, and says trade is firmer. Flour is steadier; barley in favor of buyers. In foreign wheats there was small business. The floating bulk is steadily decreasing. Flour and maize are firmer. Cargoes off coast inactive. There were nineteen arrivals, eight cargoes sold, nine withdrawn, twelve remaining, including nine of red winter, and two of California. Sales of English wheat for the week, 54,556 quarters, at 41s 8d against 36,138 quarters, at 46s 3d the j corresponding week last year. THE OLD WORLD. GREAT BRITAIN.
