Tttf 3nrful Consequences of n Cyclone in MinncRotn A City Almost Wiped Out, a Itailroad Train Wrecked, nnd lcavth and Instruction ISeKtrewing its Path. Rochester, Minn., Auit. 22. The sun never saw a sadder sight than when it rose on Rochester this morning. A cyclone stmcktho city about 'x o'clock last evening. Its track presents a foene of des olation never equaled in this vicinity. North of the railway not a house stands unin jured, and of the most of them not a vestige remains. Twenty-three persons are re ported killed, most of them outright, and a large number are not expected to live. About eighty persons have been thus far found injured, and are being cared for in vacant halls and buildings, anat the ho tels, as well as the limited resources of the citizens will permit. The weather through out the day had been unsettled, but not un usually threatening. Clouds would form and disappear, forming again heavier than before. The wind was mostly from tha southeast, blowing scud louds with it, while away above the rain-bearing stratum it drove from the northwest all day. About three o'clock a black cloud arose in the west, very threatening, but it passed harm lessly by with a furious wind and somo drops of rain. At five o'clock a low black bank lay in the southwest. It rose rapidly, but pre sented only the appearance of an ordinary thunder-storm. As it neared the city it began to assume a horrible appear ance. The whole sky was tinged with a ghastly green, and the masses of clouds swept around here and there in immense circles.

At ten o'clock all had arrived and at thnt hour the scene pre sented from the gallery of the Baldwin Hotel was one not readily to bo forgotten by San Franciscans who had the good for tune to witness it. On one side a mass of decorations extending as far as tho tri umphal arch ; cm the other side, 4,tXK) richly-clad Knight i, representing every State and Territory i the United States. To the old California p'oneer it was something be yond realization His mind reverted to the sand hills, and be was dazed. At half-past ten the order was given by the Captain General to move forward. A platoon of mounted police spurred their horses onward to clear the way, followed by a detachment of police on foot. Tho first Commandery that led off was California Commandery, No. 1, their silver-embroidered velvet cloaks and plumed hats, with richly ca parisoned horses, attracting marked atten tion. Following them came the Golden Gate and Oakland Commanderies, the Grand Master, Governor Sir (Jeorge Per kins, riding a milk-white charger specially presented to him for the occasion by Judge Denison, of Sacramento, following accom panied by his staff. Next in order came various Commanderies from California, Oregon, Washington Territory, Ne vada and Arizona, each preceded by their respective bands. These completed the Hrst three divisions, after which, up to the tenth division, came the Commanderies of States east of the Rocky Mountains. Among the latter particularly remarked from the smallness of numbers nnd pluck of coining were Arkansas, De Molni of Fort Smith; Washington, No. 1, of Hartford, Conn.; Damascus, No. 2, of Jacksonville, Fin., and Cyrene, No. 8. of Middleton, Conn., which in the person of Sir Knight Brataard LeRoy is repre sented. The approach of Lyon & Healy's band of Chicago with their striking uniforms made every ono nsk:"Whoare these Knights coming?" "They are the St. Bernards, of Chicago, who by the Knights of this coast are held in especial esteem." As they passed by, the knowledge of what, they were and tho appearance they pre sented excited long and hearty cheers. The tenth and last division was oomposad of the Grand Kncampmentof sbetTntted States, led by Sir Wm. Knox, l'ast Crand Com mander of California. Tho Royal Hawa iian band, selected by the Grand Command ery of this State as official orchestra of the Conclave, immediately preceded tho Bos ton Commnnd''ry .which acted as especial es cort to theGrand Master of theUnited States. The Bostonians were highly complimented for their excellent nppearance, and cheer after cheer was given them as they passed by, marching in close order and with mark ed precision. Following them, on white chargers, came Grand Master Dean, accom panied by a numerous and brilliant, staff, and tho procession terminated with DeWitt Clinton Commandery of Virginia City, Nev., mounted on black steeds and acting as grand guard of honor to the Grand En campment. The Virginians merited com- idiment in dress, horses and accoutrements, t was generally acknowledged that they bore off the honors of tho day. The Knights first proceeded to the payilion, where ad dresses were delivered by Gov. Htoneman, of Califowia, ex-Gov. Perkins, Mayor of tho city, and others. Then they marched to Vanness avenue, where they were reviewed by tho Grand Master, after which the march through tho city liegan. It occupied an hour in passing a given point. As near as ran Iu determine ' " W(J ICnights took f art, representing .'Mid ntanderies, from forty-six States and ;rritories. In a word, every State and erritory in tho United States was represented. The Crops in Hie Northwcsti St. Paci Minn., Auk. ). Harvest began all along the Northern Pacific to-day. In the entire valley the week has been characterized chiefly by the increase of quality of the wheat fields, which were expected not te go over No. 1. Under the favorable condition of the past week the fields are now confidently ex pected to give up a bounteous yield of No. 1 hard. George Barnes, President of tho Northern Pacific Elevator Company, speaks very highly of tho crop being harvested. He says that in his long and varied ex perience in wheat matters he has never seen such a wonderful outcome. Six weeks ago there was apparently n complete failure. The stalk is rather short, but the beads are long and the grain plump and large. Indeed, so large and heavy are the grains that some fear has been expressed that careless handling would cause somo shelling, but by oommcnapig early and cut ting it before it is over-ripe it is hoped to avoid this contingency. There can be no question that the crop will be largo. The few fields that have already lieen cut fully bear out the assertion that the Red River Valley output of wheat will lie a great one. On the Dalrymple farm har vest commenced to-day with 130 self-binders in a row. The oat crop in Cass will also be a large one and the result big. The average wheat crop for the immediate. Red River Valley can be set down at twenty five bushels, and beyond a distance of thirty miles from the river it may fall a little Iielow it. In Traill, Walsh, Grand Fork and Pembina Counties the harvest will commence to-morrow and next day, and the present fine weather mav be taken as a guarantee that the crop will lie secured in good condition. On the Minnesota the har vest was begun in several places and the yield was good. Five large elevators are being erected along the line of the More head Northern for the reception of the fall crop. With another week of fair weather, and everything points to that now, the crop of North Dakota will be cut and in shock, and the best ever harvested in thi region. A Celestial Hanging in Montana. St. Pact Minn., Aug. a). The first legal execution which ever oc curred in Western Montana took place on Thursday, at Misscula, in the hanging of Ah Yung, a Chinaman, in the Misscula jail yard. It was witnessed by about MM peo ple. The crime for which this execution was the penalty was committed January 251 last, when in an attempt to blow up the tent of the Paymaster at. Horse Plains and rob the inmates, Ah Yung shot and killed the Chinaman who owned the tent, and wounded his brother, who attempted to fol low him. To the last Ah Yung maintained his innocence.
