The fatalities are likely to be much greater when reports have been received from the Sea Islands. The damage to ship ping is heavy. The Bteamer Gov ernor Sn fford, which left Beaufort, S. C, for Savannah Tuesday morn ing, went ashore on Daufuskie Island and is lying 100 yards high and dry inland. The steamer Star went to ber assistance this morning, but has not returned. Much anxiety is felt for the tug Cynthia, which left here before the storm with a barge in tow for Brunswick. The barks Cuba and Roeeniut, which drifted from their moorings and went ashore, it ig believed may be saved. The schooners Island City and B D Metealf, which went ashore on their way to sea, were damaged. The bark Kylemore broke away from her anchorage at quaran tine and is lying against a training wall half a mile away. The loss of small sailing vessels is heavy. Up wards of 20 are reported ashore in the marshes and creeks and on the beach at the mouth of the river. Moat of these were small coasting vessels plying between Savannah and neighboring ports. The full extent of the damage and the loss of life ill not be known for several days. The centre of the storm passed east of Savannah and struck inland, north of here. The damage on the South Carolina coast is believed to fce heavy, but so far little loss of life is reported. The rice planta. tioD3 on the Carolina side of the Sa vannah river and along the river est of here suffered heavily. The nee in the fields was little injured, being coyered with water, but the storehouses and mills were wrecked, and the rice stored is a total loss. Ihe plantations on the Ogeechee and Altamaha rivers on the Geor aide also were heavily damaged. The damage in the city will prob ably exceed $1,000,000. Hardly a wilding escaped, and thousands of hnses are roofless. The work of clearing away the wreckage from the streets went on all night. The parks are pitiable sights.
