The steamers of the Champlain Transportation Compa ny will be culled from tiieir winter ijunrters to-morrow. The present run ning arrangement of the steamcre will be, us wo learn from the Free Press, to leave Burlington ut 0:30 p. in., for the south, connecting at Whitehall with trains of Dcnselluor and Saratoga ltoad for Troy, Albany, New York and the West j and 5 p.'iu., lor Pittsburgh, Og densburgh ami Montreal. Tile water in theLako is higher than It has hecn known for 20 years. Tlir, Gvral Enshvt. Accounts still come to us of the great damages done by the fre-diet. In Fair-1 fax the streams are swollen above u.iy mark reached since 1830. The highways J und bridges arc necessarily being great- ly dui.ingcd. The irehcd bridge span ning the Lamoille Hivcr leading to West ford is Impassable with teams, a portion of the north abutment being cur ried uwny. The bridge on tiie new road across Mill brook on Water Street is In a like eon lition. There is senrco'y u culvert or brook bridge on any of the principal roads in Fairfax but that is swept away. On Wednesi ay night the water reached the window sills of (limit and Shepurdson's woolen Factory at the Falls. Our Informant further informs us that the only means of travel in Cam bridge Uoro is s.ild to In by water in bouts. 'I he saw n ill at K. Highgate owned by Hlxford und Keenun, und Mr. Itix ford's inuchine shop were carried away on Wednesday. The loss must be quite large. The rush of water following the break ing away of the dam ut Hubbell's Falls, near Essex Junction, broke the bourn of the Wlnooski Lumber Company Wednesday p.m., und over a thousand logs were swept away beyond recovery. We further learn from the Free Press that'.the flume of Edwards & Stevens' machine shop was also carried uwny. Somellfleen lcet of the southeast corner was thus undermined, ut 11 o'clock Thursday forenoon, und the workmen weiv removing the stock and machinery from the axehelve factory, in that end of the shop, i'i anticipation of fii'ther disaster. The damage to the Lumber Co. is not less than $-,000. Of other lo?ses we can not L'ivo tin cstimnte. The Falls and river above and below the dams and at the High IJridge ptesent a grand sight. The Winooskl bridge stands firm and the dams, so far us known, have sustain ed no damage. On Wednesday in Montpellcr, State Street, from the old Episcopal Street to the cemetery, Avas almost entirely under water. Near the Main Street bridge over the Winooskl the water llowed acros the highway into and around the residence of Mr. Charles Silver, thrcat eningfora time to undermine and sweep it away. In many cases shops were filled with water, on thesurfaeeof which llou.ed chairs, benches, boxes, tubs und barrels. It issuid that the firm of Ban croft and Holmes removed over forly tuns of goods during the forenoon. The sudden change in the weather in the evening checked the flood and saved the village from more serious damage. The water in Perkins Pond in Plain field broke away at Its outlet Wednes day currying away all the bridges upon the brook to Plainfield village. Perkins Pond is about one mile beyond Plain field Springs und about four from Plain Held village. At the outlet of the Pond was located a saw-mill owned by Mr. Henry S. Luird, which wna entirely de stroyed. Mr. Laird's loss will probably reach the sum of two thousand dollars. IX MONTH HA I Yesterday morning the water lacked only about a foot of being as high as the highest point reached in 1801, Wo learn from the Witness of lust evening thnt (the state of iitttiirs in Cirilllntown is such us to cause serious anxiety for the condition of the inhabitants of that portion of the city. They are suffering chiefly for want of wood and coals ; and even those able to buy, can with difli- eulty obtain these articles, on account of the yards being Hooded. On Wednes day some of the police authorities spent I the whole day in rowing about the streets with bread and other necessaries for the suffering poor. A leporter of the Witness, who accompanied the police in their visits, says: As the relief party passed along t!ie streets, the chamber windows of the houses were filled with women and children clamoring for bread. Men stood upon chairs in their door ways, preferring the same request, and boys were sent from a distance on rafts with a similar pressing petition. Moth ers with infants in their arms and sur rounded with their little ones, were calling from almost every window, tell ing how many ciuuiren tney nan got. .uul how long it was since tney nail mv thine to eat. Passing through Col- borne, Ottawa, and Murray streets, the relief party lounu ninny cuse.oi real suf fering. Those were most destitute who lived in lanes and back yards. Into these out of the way places thosargeant and our reporter paddled their boat m den with bread, and thejoy witli which thev were welcomed ny the imprisoned inhabitants well repaid them for t! c disconilort tney experienced ironi tiie cold, heavy rain which fell continuous ly, in tne louoi u sitmie tney loumi u family of livo persons who had been without food lor twenty -four hours. They were all lying upon the floor cov ered with bed-clothes, and in this posi tion they liau remained liignt and day since tho rising of the water. In tin- other place one poor fellow waded up to tho sum m water up to lus middle, und took two loaves of bread for his family, who he said had not eaten since yester day moriing. These ho carried up a ladder to It is garret, where his wife and children received the brea i from Ills hands through a window. In another place there were seven families living in a tenement house, who were entirely destltutoof theconimon articles of food, being unablo to go to the gro ceries, and were also without wood or coal.

The Merrimack has ris en about seventeo. i inches since day light, and is now rising steadily about an Inch an hour. Fast of the city pro per it varies from half u nile to a mile in width and presents a magnificent spectalcle. Tlio water is wilhi ! about three feet of the woodwork of the free bridge. ThePlttslieldstnge went round to East Concord this morning, where it was obliged to stop. Its plucky driver, Frank Sanborn brought the mail on his back u distance of two miles on the track, on the Montreal Billhead. John llodgon, the fiibnunti.wn stage-driver did t'.ie sumo tiling. No train run on the Montreal load be tween Concord and Fishervllle. Its cars rtin.up six miles on Ihe Northern lino and the passengers, baggage, and mails are transported from Fjsherville In teams to the Montreal IrucK. Till: l'APSUMI'SlC KAlIiltOAl). Another despatch of the same date says: Last night another wash-out oc cured on the Passumpsic, and now the trains can go no further than Newbury. Several of the passengers from that route have been taken across the Con necticut Biver in boats to the Montreal road. It is reported that the rafts of logs above Wells Biver have broken , nway and a huge number of rivermen passed north through Concord this fore noon. There is a largo wash-out tit J South Charlesto.vn and the passengers , are carried by the boats. One report says that two million feet of logs have broken away from Mclndoe's falls and are doing great damage. ALU A NY TKOY AXJJ VICINITY. The Hood in the river at Albany utjd Troy is. tho highest it has been since 1857. Tho track of tho Hudson Biver road between Albany and Stuyvesant is submerged. Tho lower portion of Hie city of Troy is inundated and several piles of lumber have been carried away from West Troy. The storehouse of tho Ulenn Falls Line, ut Green Island, containing about 1500 barrels of lime was set on fire by the water slacking the lime and tho building was wholly destroyed togeth er with the store house of Fales and Sweet, of Trey. The boomabovj the dam at Glenn Fulls was carried away Thursday and 40,000 logs set adrift. The loss will bo very heavy. Uouti: A(ji:nt Aitoixtkh. (,'apta'n Sidney M. Houthard has been appointed route agent on the Rutland and Bur lingtan railroad in place of W.J. Ful ler, of Middlebury. The Itutland Her ald says of the new agent : "Capt.

He wusreeom mend ed f?r the position, wo understand, by nearly all the prominent men in tiie State, presenting a petition that could not fail to be recognized if any changes were to bo made at all, and was, in all probability, the strongest document of tne cnuructer una nasyet iounu its way into the departments at Washington from Vermont.
