Pittsburg April 26. At the Jenny
Lind concert, last night, $9,000 were re
ceived. Some mischievous boys threw
stones into the windovys of Jenny Lind's
carriage, md afterwards into her dressing

wounded by this outrageous assault that
slie refused to sing to night, and left for
H dfimore. Thus has Pittsburg added to
Ibe disgrace of electing Joe Baiker as

'An Jlwful Tornado On Sunday af
ternoon our City was visited by a terrific
tornado, which came nearer the descrip
tions given of those in the West Indies
than any that we have ever before seen
Its course was about a mile and a half
long and not more than twenty yards
wide. It had been raining all day, but
ce-ised between three and four o'clock,
when a dark funnel shaped cloud was ob
served in the South-west. There was lit
tle or no wind at the time, but the storm,
came down upon us suddenly with a
mighty rush. Striking first the premises
of Mr. Sylvester Smith, it prostrated
trees and fences, dashing them by its ro
tary motion in all directions; thence it
passed to B. F. Moore's, Esq., tore down
a stable on the lot of the late Huffm Tuck
er, leveled the chimney and blew in the
sashes of the Standard Office and with in
creasing fury struck the beautiful resi
dence of Mrs. Eliza Taylor. There,
where all was but a moment before a pa
radise of beauty, it left nothing but deso
lation; her beautiful green house, one ol
the finest in the place, is now a complete
wreck, from the falling of a chimney on
thc roof, and flourishing shrubs in her
yard are leveled with the earth. It pass

roof and whirling it through the air with
