The storm which visited us on Tues
day night last was fearfully severe and
destructive in other sections of the State
and especially in Mecklenburg. Iredell
Catawba and Caldwell counties. I
was not followed by rsnch: fatal results
as the terrible storm of February, nor
did it extend over so large an area o
territory, but it wrought wreck and
rain in its path wherever it did strike.
Tho storm seems to have been compos
eu 01 a series 01 wmriwinas, .lour or
"five in number, one of which struck
Berry mil and Charlotte, in .Mecklen
burg, another travel letTalong Iredell, a
lew miles south of Statesville,! a 'third
struck Catawba county, passing through
isewton, aim a tourtn traversed a
section of Caldwell county, striking the
town ol Lenoir.;
The whirlwind passed uucomfortably
close to Charlotte on tho south, the
nearest point in its track being the
residence of Mr. B. E. McDonald, near
the old fair grounds. Mr. McDonald's
fruit trees were all torn up. A large
apple tree was hurled against the top of
his house, crushing in tho roof. A few
hundred yard3 off, the barn of Mr.
Flow was carried away.
The Charlotte Observer contains
graphic account of the ravages of the
nyclone, and from that journal we learn
that in Mecklenburg county, it started
in the southwest corner of Berryhil
township, and followed tho "Steele
Creek Bidge," to within a few miles of
Charlotte, when it lifted and passed on
without doing furthnr danage. The
principal sufferers wero Lee Bay, Sr.,
Lee Ray, Jr., Robert flay,. Jr., L. A.
Vanderburg, David. F. McKoy, Jane
Grier, (colored,) Frank Ilovis. S. R.
.turner and . 11. liiiton. ine resi
dences of the three Rays were entirely
demolished. Vanderburg and McKoy
lost their barns; Jane Grier's residence
was swept away ; Frank Hovis1 house
was moved from its foundations, and
every single out house on his premises
was blown to pieces; A. R. Turner lost
all his out houses and his dwelling was
moved from its foundation ; every fence
about S. H. Hilton's house was demol
ished and his blacksmith shop was
carried away, not so much as a ham
mer remaining where it stood. John
Northey's barn was crushed.by a large
white oak tree. The barn was crushed
to within two feet of the ground, and a
hole was cut in its side, when a horse
and mule crawled out on their knees
uninjured. The barn of Thomas Fur
guson was also crushed by a falling
tree. On the plantation of L. A. Van
derburg, two and a half miiC3 lrom
Charlotte, a negro cabin had its
end carried away, and fca well
curbing, built of brick three feet
high, was leveled to the ground.
Mr. Robt. Ray, Jr., and his family.
were sitting around their fireside, when
the storm came up. Ihc mother be'
coming alarmed, placed her three chil
dren in bed and stood beside them. All
at once the roof came in, and then the
whole house wa3 scattered in the storm.
A heavy cupboard fell across tho bed,
but was caught on a piece of timber
hat held it up. Mother and children
were found uninjured. Mr. Ray was
found in the ruins ol the house, badly
injured by a piece of! timber falling
upon his breast. 4rbe track of the
storm in Berry hill and Charlotte town
ships ranged from 50 yards to half
mile in width . It'took alzigzag course,
.in some places doubling back on itsell
and ihe moving forward again. Trees,
fences and everything in its track, were
swept away. The damage to the for
estsis simply immense, and can scarce
ly be calculated. The entire work of
destruction was done within the space
of fifteen minutes the cyclone struck
Newton, in Catawba county, about
five o'clock Tuesday afternoon.- It
came from the Southwest, and its track
was about 200 yards wide. The blow
lasted just ten minutes, and when, it
Dassed the people walked out to see
such a scene or deslocation and wrecks
age as has never before been known, in
Newton. The Methodist church was
completely wreck, the chandeliers,
orcan and furniture all being lost in the
ruins. "Snow Hill," a colored settle
ment, was obliterated, but no lives
were lost. The Southern part of the
town suffered most, three dwellings
being entirely destroyed and fifeen
dwellings unroofed. Catawba College
was unroofed. Cline & Williams' mill
was moved from its foundation and its
entire roof was carried away. Several
citizens were seriously hurt and many
miraculous escapes are reported. Hail
fell in immense quantities, Ihe -stones

yard3 wide and several miles in length
that looks as if it had been traveled
over by some mighty mowing machine.
It is a track left by a whirlwind. Not
a shrub is left standing. Large trees
are twisted off above the ground and
piied in tangled masses all along the
track None of the trees are uprooted,
but ail are twisted off near the ground.
Capt. Wm. Ciarkson's train from Char
lotte to Statesville, came along shortly
after the storm passed, and the first
thing it encountered wa3 a house that
had been blown from a hill near by and
planted squarely acrcss the track. It
had been occupied by a colored family,
all of whom escaped uninjured. Amos
Jenkins, one of Capt. Ciarkson's train
hand3, lived near Statesville, and on the
arrival ofthe train at that place,, he
proceeded, as was hi3 custom, toj his
home. When he arrived at the spot his
house could nowhere be seen, bu
where it stood was a mass of fallen
trees. He afterwards found his family
uninjured at a neighboring house.
Later particulars from Newloa state
that the cyclone formed three miles west
of the town. It was a quarter of a mile
wide, passing almost directly east, and
struck the Southern part of the town,
wrecking anouc tnirty nouses, some
being entirely destroyed, Included in
these is tha Methodist church, the resi
dence of Rev. Coly Killian, Mr. Charlie
Jarrett, and a number of houses! of
colored people. Many other dwelling
were unroofed and some were lifted off
their foundation. Daniel Setzer, liying
three miles east of Newton, had eyery Jjter, Blltteri Blittei

of the test, which on account of the caution'

was not to prove the Impossibility ol destroy
