STORM.
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

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.
