Disastrous Storm and loss of Property.
On Saturday morning our town was visi
ted wild one of tde most violent storms
which we ever witnessed About Z o
clock, A. Al., tde rain, accompanied by a
violent gale from the North Cast, began
to tan in torrents, and continued witiiout
intermission until 7 A. when it abated,
during this period, short as it may appear,
a part of the town was completely inunda
ted, causing several families to leave then
on homes and take shelter with their
neighbors and doing much injury to the
property both of the town and individuals.
At one lime, Rank, .Market, and Old
Greets, pre.ented feaifui aspects the wa

tion cellars were filled to ovei li m ing.
nd great fears were entertained that se
veral houses would be undermined by the

correctly to learn the amount of properly
injured, but we should suppose that indi
vidual losses amounted lo at least $5000,
.ud Iheiown to perhaps $ IO,OOo" more.
On the coast we lear the loss of life anil
property, has been great. Owing to the
"jy received by the Richmond and Pe
ieisburg Rail Road, (which we understand
will be speedily repaired,) the Northern
mail of Saturday, was not received until
Sunday evening. The Petersburg and
Roanoke Rail Road, though somewhat
injured, is still in a passable condition.

lor the South, were destroyed by. the inun

Rebecca Lamar. An afivcting incident
relative to this lady, who, it will he re
membered, was one of the female survi
vors of the ili-staraed passengers on boau
the Pulaski, has just come lo our knowl
edge. Miss Lamar, say s a gentleman from
Charleston, whose life was saved on the
same portion of the w reck, was our guar
dian angel, cheering the desponding, alle
viating the sorrows of those who had seen
the waves of the ocean close over their
nearest and dearest relatives, and adminis
tering hope and consolation even to the
veteran sailor, to whom scenes of terror
and dismay had long been familiar. So
groat, in fine, was the confidence she in

vive the horrors of thai awful hour, witi
their last looks turned towards her win
had never quailed or blanched beneath the
terrors of ihe scene, although the stoutest
hearts had failed, and the boldest trembled
in anticipation of their fate.
How do the glories of a Catharine, a

Just Rebuke. The editor of the New
born Spectator inflicts the following just
rebuke, on his federal cotemporaries, for
their foolish remarks concerning the visit
of Mr. John Van Ruren lo England:
Mr. John Van Ruren seems lo be en
joying himself occasionally at the Couf t of
St. James, and to be highly privileged by
Ihe great of aristocratic old England, di
ning, dancing and "frolicking" with idem,
as if nobles had been his phi mates fiom
youth upwards. This is ail well enough,
and we are ashamed to see the absurdities
that are published on this subject by ome
of the Whig papers. We see in the atten
tions paid to the son of ihePresidenl, noth
ing more than a compliment to the people
of the United States, paid delicately at.d
properly. In England, all mut presume
that one whom the people of this country
scledt as President must have a stronghold
on their esteem, and this inference will
readily lead to the above conclusion, and
justify us in the belief, that the couttesies
extended to John Van Ruren are neither
through respect to him nor his father, as
individuals, but, indirectly, to the people.
The most ridiculous part of the affair is that
which places the names of Queen Victoria
and John Van Ruren in juxtaposition, and
hints at the probability of a matrimonial

England will sneer at our editorial folly
when they see such absurdities made the
subject of serious discussion in respectable
