Galveston, Tax., Oct br 14. The
town c I Habii.e, atthainonihot the Ra
bioe river, the dividing lin betweon
Lmisiaua and Texas, ii repDited as
eutirely bathed away bv tbe terrific
a'orm of Tuesday night. Over fifty
Uvea tra reported lost out of a total
population of 200 All telegraphic
communication with town is cat off.
Sabine Pass ia sixty miles tip tbe
coast from Galveston and twenty
eigtit mi ei southrat of Bieumont,
tht county at at of Jefferson county.
It is thought that tbe bar in front of
ton will prevent any tugs from land

Hash as to attempt to enter the treach
r.,ui channel since tbe storm.
Telegraphic csmmuoication with all
p jinti ou'side of Texas was nearly

the groat disaster at Sabine Pa s wls

Bk4umort, October 1H88.
Our town is in a elu' of int-nsn ex

firm t-otjii e i'us. It is news cf a ter
rible 1-si of life nml dstiii( tiin of
projierty in that i Ikcb from high w. tfr.
We have now no telegraph communi
cation with tbe nncs, tbe wirt-s all be

tonight over the Kaat Texai r.ilway
t' at left there abont 0 o'clock. Two
cuiiem who rowed in a small boat
across an expanse rf totsing waterj, a
distance of revernl miles from tbe
town i f Sablue, tj the lallrocd track
ai d came in on the engiim, report a
Imnrtrendirg account f afl'u rs there.
They say tbe aateis bfgun toinvale
tua town from the Gulf and laki to
gether about 2 o'clock Tues iay aftar
no'n and rohe with unprecedeiitpd
rapidly. The cit zees of the doomed
place did not real z t the imminent
tWgr until it wa- toi la e to enapo.
When cafety by flight was rtcogoiz d
as be'ng out of the ques
tion, the people who were
situated so they rould do it, betook
themselves t houses and retorts
adjudged to be safe. The water
k ipt rising, and at 3:30 o'clock the
smaller hous's began to yield to the
r statics force of wsv-'fl, and not
only movrd from tbeir founds Ions,
but turned on tboir sides and top).
A litt'e laier the lar.er homes began
to give way and death by drowning
Benin ail in H orn for every cit' tun of
the place. With the yielding of
smaller houses seviral persons, who
Lad remained in them, were drowned,
and when tbe residences and bnninexs
places began to crumble, the fatality
began to double. Tbe following in
complete list of the drowned was
obtained fr.im the two gentlemen who
came over on the engine:
JIM VONUY nd family of ail,
MKS. A LTO MIOWJI and two childron,
IIOMKK KINU, wifo and ohildt
MliS. JUNKKR and son,

MttS. MoDuNAM), daughter and grand-
""lUNK MULMOAN nnd family,
COLUMBUS MAKtUtteud family,
And about twenty-five colored people,
arhose names could not be given.
Tue abave list comprises over fifty
human victims of storm, among them
some of the leading families of the
p'ace. There are ofbers, an! many of
them doubtle-s, drowned with nit any
one now living kn iwing anything of
it. lr. is foa oJ ttiat whole families in
diffi rent parts of tho pines have been
swept away without leaving a person
or vestige to indicate their terr b'.e
fate. It is said that the s tuition dur
ing the latter part of the afternoon
bevgaia dtscripton. The n a iifes a
tion i:f terror ar.d egjny by people
looking face to face at death and
real til g that there was no cacao:, the
dying cries of women, andible but
rendered almost noUelen by the rotr
of the mud roa ; the hoarse voices of
pallid men trying to save tliote dear
to them all combined in add a scene
too horrible to be described.
On tecjipt of this new the litis ma
of ttearjuioiit immediately b-gtn pre
patatWi'B for relie'. The Fast Texts
railway has p ace I an euiue at their
di positl, and a party of men have
gone to Orange to rarry the news and
there procuie a Dial and etart for the

the trees of Douglass, Garfield and
