Special DUpatcU to The Tribune. New York, Aug. 10.—A Tima special from Wallingford, Conn., says no man who has not looked upon the ruin wrought In this place by the storm ol Friday can conceive of the terrible force with which the elements beat upon the plains of Wallingford during the few moments It lasted. Never did storm come with more appalling suddenness. Friday afternoon ■was one of the loveliest of the season. Light clouds sailed across the sky until 3or 4 o’clock in the afternoon, occasionally obscuring the sun. Then a few black clouds portend ing disaster appeared over .Mount Lamen tation, a high hill lying to the westward of the village. Tinder the foot of this hill spreads Lake Windermere, an artificial pond created by the community people by damming the Quinuipiac Kiver. Wallingford lies between this hill and another not so high that runs parallel to the mountain east of the town. Hills surround the pretty village. THE CLOUDS GREW DARKER toward 5 o’clock, when the workmen about the village left the factories and the mills, and started for their homes. The wives set about preparing supper for their returning husbands, and only a passing glance was east toward the murky clouds that rolled oyer the western hills. By s:3oo’clock they had become Intensely black. Still there .was no sense of impending danger. The utter stillness that precedes many storms settled down In the valley Just before B o’clock. All the wind ; scemcil to have died away, but aloft THE CLODDS WEST TEARING WILDLY ALONG at such a pace that many observers took alarm, and hastened through thcstrccts to seek shelter. Lightning began to play incessantly across the low-hanging clouds. With horrible suddenness a change took place in the heavens. Under the threatening clouds other and blacker clouds were driven. They came up from the west almost with the swift ness of thought, before a dense black mass that rolled over the Wallingford community. A fleecy, white curtain advanced, hiding the orchards and vineyards as it moved forward. The • lightning flashed in blinding forks from this cloud, that was MORE LIKE SMOKE THAN VAPOU in its lightness. Incessantly the flashes lighted up the surrounding country with a lurid purple light, while the thunder rattled and boomed with interminable and deafening loudness. It was about 0:13 that a second mass of clouds was noticed approaching on a different current of wind from the northward, aod some say there was also a counter-current setting in from the southward, bringing heavy black clouds that seemed to touch the tops of the trees. A few drops of raiu fell gently. Men and women hurried to the windows to close them, and home-going laborers began to run. Little reckoned any one the peril of that moment. Before a cry could be raised, or prep aration made to escape, A DEATH-DEALING BLAST fell upon the homes of the poor. The heavy clouds over Windermere Lake seemed suddenly to drop upon the lake, and the waters were churned into foam with a great whirling and whistling. The winds from opposite quarters seemed to meet. A great volume of water was lifted from the lake and went swirling up and up Into the air. Lightning is not quicker than was the advance from west to east of the column of water and the clouds that seemed to mingle with it. In a second it started on a forward course. Before it lay the sand plains ou which ABOUT FIFTT POOR FAMILIES, mostly Irish, have bought lots and established their dwellings. The plains are nearly flat for a distance west to east of about a third of a mile. Then the land rises rapidly to the ridge on which the main street is laid out. The Wallingford Community had a water wheel on the shore of Windermere Lake. The whirlwind caught it, and it was crumbled as it it had been built of straws. A few hundred yards from the lake was a poor cottage, in which lived Michael Mooney, his wife Mary, and their sons Daniel and Michael. Michael was in the village. With the first puff of wind the woman attempted to shut the win dows ; the hoys assisted her. Before they knew what had happened the house was LEVELED TO THE EARTH. A power Irresistible carried the building,twisted into fragments, living through the air, Mrs. Mooney was caught up and hurled along through branches o£ trees, and over a telegraph wire, beyond the railroad, across two lanes, a distance of nearly a quarter of a mile, when she was flung down. BATTERED, GASSED, AND BLOODT. The boys were blown through windows along with bricks, pots, aud pans. Michael was car ried into the branches of a nrostrated apple tree. Daniel was whirled away on the gale 150 yards, where he was flung down so violently as to have bis arm broken, while bis face was a mass of livid bine spots and deep scratches. The wind swept out, taking everything i n its way. High street and Wallace row Intersect Colony street, and lead up ovoc.the hill toward Maiu street. On these streets were cabins wid a few neat new dwellings, and about them gar dens thriving ana well Kept. In the twinkling of an eye EVERYTHING WAS CRUSHED and the fragments of what were but a moment before houses were carried aloft in the consum ing gale. Houses in Colony street were lifted from their foundations and crashed, while the roofs went sailing over the plain toward the hill, crumbling into fragments as they went. In the path of the gale stood the Roman Catholic Church, hemmed In on three aides by a cemetery. The storm, to judge from the ap pearance of the ruin as it-looked to-day, PLOWED INTO THE FOUNDATIONS, pressing them away from the frame-work. Then the walls, front and back, were crushed In, and the roof fell so as to cover all completely. A more complete wreck than this church could not have been made, except by fire. Opposite the church were several little tenements, all oc cupied by large families. When the gale bad pass ed, nothing remained to indicate that there had been there, except the gaping cellars and a line of splinters leading into other lines that at last met in an unbroken covering to’the ground of broken joists, fences, kitchen uten sils, and clothing. In this spot, an eighth of a mile on each side of and opposite to the Catholic Church, TilE GREAT LOSS OF LIPS OCCURRED. It is a remarkable fact tbit every person killed was a member of the Catholic Church. In one of the houses lived Mrs. Downs, a middle-aged woman. She was whirled! away COO feet, and picked up dead and almost naked. A hay-stack on John Lynch’d farm was car ried an eighth of a mile, and then dropped upon the side of the bill. « All this destruction was done in much less time than it takes to write It. With appalling violence the wiuu swept up the hill towards Main street, ' whirling and eddying about, and dropping a shower of rubbish on the tobacco fields nelow. ! Where it touched the brow of the hill, the district school-house stood in its path. The edifice cost *40,000 in IS7O, and was a fine brick building of three stories and a Mansard root The wind struck upon its west front, pushed in the walls of the two upper stories, WRENCHED HUGE PIECES FROM THE WALL ana flung them into the yard and then passed on. In an instant the building was ruined. Two stories stand, but they arc pushed out of perpendicular so completely that they will never be straightened. ‘ . 4 Looking back from the school-house towards the Westward, about fifty feet below, at the end of a steep slope, is the; plain, covered with its carpeting of debr!es,| The entire work of devastation In thal direction could be seen, a plain wimjow, half a mile in width in Its widest part, and In that dreadful lane were only two or three houses that still clung together at all, and these so badly twisted, tilted, and defaced that it will be dif ficult ever to rebuild them. The loss Is esti mated at $250,000. i TUB SCENES IK WALLINGFORD to-day were, heartrending,'and unmanned the strongest spectators. A. brick school-house was used as a dead-house, and around this the thousands gathered, manjr searching for rela tives and friends, the 'rest 'curious to sec the dead. Not less than 30.000 people flocked into the rulued village from ail the surrounding country. Twenty-five families arc homeless, and a relief subscription-fund has been started, headed by Gov. Hubbard with SIOO. Everything possible is being done for the sufferers. Such a tornado is almost unprecedented in this section. FRBSS REPORT. Mbridhk, Conn., Aug. 10. —Four of the in jured at Wallingford, Airs. Alary Lynch and her daughter Maggie, and Mrs. Patrick Coshen and her son, Josh Goshen, have died since last night, making the number killed twenty-five. No more bodies nave been taken irom the ruins. Arrangements are being made for funeral services, to be held in the Town-Hall on Sunday afternoon. , A relief committee has, been appointed, who are caring for the survivors. , , - ' A large crowd of visitors throng the streets, and liberal contributlona <g -m6ncy are collect ed irom them, and also from passing trains and the public generally. The tornado also swept: over the southern part of Dunham and through the town of Kill ingworth, and several buildbigs were blown down, trees uprooted, and crops injured. All the saloons in town have been closed by the Selectmen. WASHINGTON. ANOTHER TORNADO. Special DifpatcA to Tht Tribune. Washington, D. C., Aug. 10.—Washington was visited by two very severe storms of heavy rain and strong wind this afternoon at intervals of an hour. The damage to trees throughout the city seems to have been greater than in the earlier part of the week. Some of the larger residences in the city were un roofed, hacks and wagons were upset in the streets, and half, of each of the glass fronts of the Western Union Telegraph office were blown in, and one of the messenger bo\’s very severely mangled by falling glass. Some of the oldest trees in the city were badly broken, and all the parks in the section about the White House were considerably damaged. The fall of water was again very great, and the overflow Irom the sewers .caused much damage iu several parts of the city. SCANDAL. A St. liOaia Clergyman Accidentally Ex posed In Ills Career of I.lcuntiousncß». Special Dlepatch to The Tribune. St. Lodis, Aug. 10.— For over two weeks, Notary Watts lias been engaged in taking depositions in wlmt is known as the Chambers- Damcron suit, a litigation; between two prom inent Methodist brethren involving a certain publication right. Chambers is a book pub lisher and Damcron is the well-known Logan D. Dameron, publisher of the Christian Advo cate of this city. Until to day the develop ments of the case had been so prosv and mo notonous that most of the local papers had declined to give them more than a passing notice. To-day, however, Mrs. Emma Roberts was placed on the witness-stand, and her testimony at once gave a character to the case that ; made it intensely sensational. She was a witness for Chambers. She testified that she was the wife of E. A. Roberts, resident physician of St. Luke’s Hos pital. She testified that on the 6th of June, IS7I, a voung lady named Miss Emily Robinson was brought to the hospital, being very sick and in a delicate condition.. She was aoout 17, and unusually pretty. The following is tne pith of the story: Re ceived the patient in the Hospital, my husband being sick at the time. i inquired Into her condition, and so forth, and assigned her to her room. Then I saw her two or three days alter that, hut had no conversation with her except to ask how she was, and so forth, to know whether she was better or worse. The second evening after her arrival she was taken worse, and sunt for me. Said she had a secret to tell me. 1 went to the room, and she requested that all should leave the room mid the door be closed, and her first question was, il Mrs. Roberts, do you think 1 am done or going to die!” I told her Dr. Pallen told me that he thought she would die, and she held up her hands and looked at them, and said: “Pcs,-Mrs. Roberts, I know lam going to die. I feel like It; and do you think that God will forgive me for my great sin I” She then asked mo if I knew her condi tion. I told her I did: that Dr. Fallen had told me; and said: “Emily, you have been taking some medicine that, has made you very sick,” and she said “ Yes." I asked her where she had got that medicine. She got it of a Mrs. Eugeles. Seventh and Lynch, No. 27—, she could not remember the balance of the number, but told me I wouhT-findher address In , her pocketbook. r • - l ocked her then who was the father ot her child, and she then declined telling me on'ac count of the affection and esteem that she held her mother and. the child. She disliked to hare her mother and the child disgraced. She-was very fond of the child. 1 Insisted on her telling, and she then told me that Logan D. Dameron was the fatberof the child, tasked if be bad advised her to get this medicine. She said, “No.” I asked her who did tell her. She said a cook in Mr. Dameron’s kitchen told her, and she tried to recall to my mind the oay she got the medi cine. The day she got it she passed by house, and saw me at the window and spoke to me. I sent for her mother, and told her mother what her daughter had said, and some person asked her (1 don’t know, who it was) it she didn’t wish to see Mr. Dameron; I think it was her sister Kate. She said she did, and her mother and sister went after Mr. Dameron, but be did not come. 1 went also for Dr. Johnson to come, andner mother asked her before God and all the witnesses around the bed, who was the father of the child, and£she said Logan D. Dameron, and Dr. Johnson and the Chaplain didn’t hear. She didn’t speak loud enough for them to hear, and her mother repeated the question again. Dr. Johnson repeated Mr. Damercn’s name again, but I don’t know whether Mr, Wickens, the Chaplain, heard it or not. He is a little deal. Well, I stayed with her some time longer that night, and left her in the care of her mother and sister. The next morning the child was born at about 10 o’clock. Q. —How long did she live after the birth of the child. A.—She died that night, some time about 12 or 2 o’clock in the morning. Q. —Now, have you stated, as near as you can recollect, this conversation with Miss Robinson with reference to the paternity of the child. A.—Yes, sir; every word that I can recollect. I remember now I asked her If Mr. Dameron promised to do something for her, and the re ply was that he promised to support her. I asked her also If she had seen him lately, and she answered “No." I believe, that is every thing I remember about the conversation.' Q.—Did you have any further conversation with her! . A.—No, sir. She was not in her right mind after that, so that she cDUId talk to me. Q.—Did you ever have any conversation with Fallen i A.—Yes, sir; we had a good many. Q. —Will you slate, Mrs. Roberts, as near as you can, what these couversations were A.—After the child was burn, and Dr. Fallen was told who the father of the child was, his re mark was, “ I expected this. I have been look ing tor something of that kind.” Thai he bad attended Mrs. Dameron in her illness, and he said he hau noticed too great familiaritybctween Miss Robinson and -Mr. Dameron, and be re marked that there was another girl who had left the house under suspicious circumstances, and that Miss Robinson was a connection or relative of ,lis - . .... Q.—Airs. Roberts, was there anything else you know in reference to this matter that I have not asked vouf If so, please state it. A.—l have not told you of the disposition of the child. Dr. Johnson was there just after the child was born, and so was Dr. Fallen, and I asked Dr. Fallen what we should do with it, and Airs. Robinson requested so much not to give any publicity to it, and 1 promised that I would not, and Dr." Fallen said be would sec that the child was taken awav. He told me he would send Dr. Lightburu to the house. Q.— Anything furtner. A.—That is all I know. This testimony naturally created a flutter among the brethren present, and the Rev. Dameron, who was absent at the time, was hur riedly sent for. He came in a considerable state of excitement, and, after a protest to the Notary that such evidence was irrelevant and immaterial in the case pending, was about to cross-examine the witness, when an adjourn ment was taken until Monday. The facts in this case have been discussed often before in certain circles, but the lascivious person has thus far escaped publication in the newspapers. It is said that he has been a par ticipant in a number of ocher licentious adven tures during his ministerial career, about which his enemies will no longer keep mum. WASHINGTON.
