moved to the hospital or to their
berate. Five others are fatally in
jartd and will die. 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

RICHMOND IN" THE STORM AREA.
Richmond, Va., Sept. 30,The
most violent wind-storm ever known
in this section burst upon the city
last night about 9 o'clock and raged
for some two hours. The wind was
accompanied by rain and the blow
was from the south-west. Trees
were uprooted, fences blown down,
windows blown in and houses un
roofed in every direction. On
Broad street the roof of Jacob'
clothing store was blown in on some
sleeping children, and one of them
seriously hurt. The Second Baptist
church was damaged.(
The same story of the storm comes
to the Dispatch from all over the
State east of the Blue Ridte. Barns
and small outhouses were swept
away, trees uprooted, residences un
roofed, wires prcstrated ana general
wreckage prevails.
Tuesday's storm carried terror and
forebodings of danger to many
homes last night, says the Raleigh
PressVisitor, but to one humble
cottage it carried death. A sad and
distressing story comes from St.
Matthews' township near Garner.

wind was expending its fury, a giant
