with the English, the Italians with

There are lumors here to day of
an immense destruction by the
flood in New York City but they
are thought to be exaggerated. One
report has it that Trinity Church,
which is on Broadway and about 30
feet. above the level of the water at
ordinary high tide, has been flood
ed, but this report lacks confirma
tion. Certain it is, however, that
the lower part of the city has been
badly inundated 'and the damacre
pvill be very great. The tide is said
to be the highest ever know there,
but it is expected that the flood will
subside to night. Many disasters
to shipping are already known and
many more are probable. The storm
is alsj very severe at other points
along the North Atlantic Coast. It
is probably the same storm th at
started down in the Carribean sea
and that was lost sight of and re
ported to have probably recurved.
It seems to have gone out to sea arid
then made its way in to the coast. '
