"tornado.
The following circumstantial account ofthe
dcstructivc tornado which visited the neighbor
hood of Ripley. Me., is from a correipondent
ofthe Bangor Whig.This hurricane, the most
remarkable that ie known over to have occur
red in the same quarter of the country, hap
pened on the 27th of July, between four and
five o'clock in the afternoon-
Itwas first percetved in Ripley, where it was
secn of small size, at first, gradually acquiring
rtrength, and then traversing the air in tho
form of a mighty whirlwind, shaped like a tun
ncl, and accompanied with some hail.
It first struck thc house and barn of Joseph
ilerdan levelled the barn complctely with the
ground, carricd off the roof of the house, raov
ed the bodv of the house a few fnet cnd let it
own party way into the cellar. The family
'n the house were unharmed.
It ne.tt struck thchouje and twp harns of
3-3i bt- ii - aeaohshc 1 trem ajl io n mo-
ment, scattering them "in cvery dircction.
Some of the bricks wero found fifty rods from
tne nousc.
Mr. Stonc and his family were in the house
at tho time, his wife sick. Ile reccivcd many
t - l . . 1 JLf-
Druises, oui no oones wero orosen, anu ue is
now doing welL One giri found the timbcrs
in falling had confined hcr by her dress, so
that it was impossibleforhcrtoescapetill some
one came to her assistance, and tore her dress
froin her, leaving it under the timbers. She
received no injury.
It next struck the hoaJC and barn of Samu
elJordan, destroying them entirely. Noth
ingbut part of the loworfloor is left in its lbr
mer place not a stick or & splinter is sland-
Tet the family most miraculontly escaped
uninjured. As it passed through the fields
before reaching these houies. I saw one place
where ithad ploughed the groundto theaepth
of eightinchcs, onerod in length and tenfeet
in breadth, scouring thesoil andstones entire
ly off to that depth. At another place, a stone
wcighing some six hundred pounds, one third
embedded in thc earth, was thrown from its
placo a numberof feet. As it passed through
Mr. Stone's orchard it tore up the trees carry
ing some of them ten and twenty rods some
wcre left clinging to the earth by a small por
tion of the roots, the trunks of others were
twistcd nearly ofT. An eye witness says that
when it struck the buildings cf Mr Stonc, eo
quick was its cxecution, that the appearance
was more likc a lsrpe body of smoke than any
thiag he could think of. Powder could hardly
have becn more sudden in its operation. Af
ter clearing away a Iittlc,the air sccmcd fillcd
with sticks, boards, brokcn timbcr, and rub
bish, which fell in many plaees at great dis
tauccs from the buildings. Many whosawit
at diflercnt stages of its coursc, describcdit as
sending forlh frcquent flashesof lightning.and
it was gcncrally accompanied by a grcat noise
resembling continucd thunder.
It ncxt struck the buildings of John Lane,
complctely dcmolishing his barn, and unroof
itig his house. A school-house near by was
movcd from its foundation without being bro
kcn in pieccs. Thc children, elevcn in num
ber,ran out of the school-house betorothewind
reached it, tothe house of Mr. Crawford. Af
ter neirly all of them had entered Mr. Craw-
fords house, that was also levelled with the
ground. One little boy, about five ycarsof
ne, who did not reach tbe house, was blown
into a trcc, the trce blown down, and he re
coived no injury. Mr. Crawford's family were
absont. Richard Lane lost his bnrn.
Paising from Ripley into Dexter, the barn
ofJamcsLane was blown down. iMcxt the
buildings of Samuel Abbot, consisting of a
new house, not finished, and his old house and
barn were destrovcd. A portion of the old
houso, into which "the family ran, was Icft stand
in", but of no value. No one was injurcd.
Not a stick of hi3 fcncc for the distance of for
tv rods rcmaincd in its former place, but thc
fragnipnts might be scen strcwn over the
ncishborinc fields, 10, 20, 30, and forty rods
distant. Some pieces oflus buildings have
been found four or five miles from the place
where thev stood. Of nioe hives of bees not
a traco can bc found of four. AVhcrc it stop-
pcd, or where it first comuienccd, lsnotknown
to us. but we hear of no damage to buildings
west of Ilinlev. It is said to have been teen,
however, in New Portland, and Ktngsbury,
whcncc it rose into the air, and diu not Touch
thc ground again until it reached Ripley.
