New York. Feb. 17. New York city han borne the brunt of the fiercest storm of snow that has struck this sec tion of the country since the great blizzard of lxSii. Beginning soon after mi d night, the storm increased rapidly until by daybreak the whole city was completely snowed under. The rising force of the gale p'lc?d the snow in great drifts that for some time almost suspended trallic, excent in the main thoroughfares" where the car tracks were kept open only by the constant efforts of snow plows antj sweepers. Communication between Manhattan and Brooklyn was subject to long delay. The ferryboats with dillUulty made trips across the ice-choked riv ers, and the work cf tugboats, lighters and shipping was generally a I moot at a standstill. So heavy was the snow fall that the loading o vessels was stopied, it being impossible to keep the hatches open. Two steamers which arrived during the night .struggled as far as Quaran tine, where they came to anchor. Sev eral steamers are supposed to be oft' Sandy Hook waiting for the storm to abate before attempting to enter the port.

There is considerable delay in the ar rival of mails. AH outgoing mails were closed from thirty minutes, to an hour before the usual time.- All Long Island from Montauk Point to Ivong Island City is snowbound. All lines of trolley car.? were blocked by the drifts, and efforts to ojen them were of no avail. Many thousands of people employed in New York and Brooklyn had to turn back unable to breast the blinding snow squalls. Kighteen inche3 of snow fell in Os sinx. N.
