Wc was visited on the evening of Tuesday last with one of most violent storms of wind and rain, which was probably ever visited this or any other Country. For nearly forty hours the ' v,nt * blew * n the feirceness of the most / violent storms from North to North East, acr ,,*?**' sweep.n ' every thine l.ke bridges or Mill-dams in its course. W e have already heard of the following number of Mill-dams in this County, which have been broken and many very much ' n j'l l ' ei '\ The mill at the head of Cedar Creek, Dr. Joseph Maull's mill at Milton, and three other mills above it on the same stream—Doe Bridge mill ant! tour others on the same stream, Cons cord mill and three others on the same stream, and R usse ll's mill—and we have no doubt many others, if not nearly all the mills'ln the County have been injured iu their dams or otherwise more or less. We have heard of three mills which have been washed intirely from their stations and carried down the cur rent. r Above we have fifteen of the most valuable mills in our County, which will for some con siderable time be out of usp, mukiHg it still more difficult to obtain grinding. For many weeks our citizens have been going some twenty miles or more, to procure grinding, and so far" ai we have heard, there are hut one mill a ' standing which can grind Wheat or Coin.
