FKANCB . The 1 lth light infantry regiment , under orders for Algeria , met with a dreadful accident on the 16 th instant , neat Angers , part of a battalion having been precip itated into the Loire by the breaking down of a wire suspension bridge . The following farther particulars are given by the 4 Journal de Maine et Loire ' : —* A fri ghtful event bits just occurred here . We write under the strongest feelings of distress . At eleven yclock this morning a squadron of hussars , coining from Nantes , bad crossed over the suspension bridge of the Basse Maine , without any accident , although
the wind blew very heavily from the west , and the . river was very agitated . The last of the horses bad scircely crossed the bridge than the head of the column of the third battalion of the 11 th Light Infantry appeared on the other side . Reiterated warnings were given io the troops to break into sections , a 3 is usually done , but the rain falling heavily at the time , it was disregarded , and the battalion advanced in close column . The head of the battalion had reached the opposite side , the pieneere , the drummers , and a part of the band were off the bridge , when a horrible crash was heard ; the castiron columns of the right bank suddenly gave way , crushing beneath them the rear of the 4 th company ,
wiich , with the flank company , had not entered on the bridge . To describe the frightful spectacle and the cries of despair which were raised , is impossible ; the scene at the bridge of Beresina can alone give an idea of it . The whole town rushed to the spot to give assistance . In spite of the storm which was raging , all the boats that could be got were launched to pick up the soldiers in the river , and a great number who were clinging to the parapets of ; the bridge , or who were kept afloat b y their knapsacks , were immediately got out . The greater number of them were , however , found to be wounded by the bayonets , cr by the fragments of the bridge falling on them . Every one on the spot
Tied with each other in rendering assistance , and as the soldiers were got out they were led into the hqusea adjoining , and every assistance g iven . Those who were teo much injured to walk were placed on litters . All the authorities of the town , the troops in the garrison , and the officers and soldiers who bad escaped injury , had only one idea—that of rendering all the assistance in their power . A young L ' entenant of the 11 th , M . Loup , rendered himself conspicuous for his heroic exertions ; and a young workwoman , at the imminent danger of her life , jumped in ! o the water , and saved the life of an
officer who was just sinking . It is impossible for ns at this moment to estimate the number of lives tlfit have been lost . Of those that escaped with their lives , there is scarcely one but has received wounds from the bayonets of his comrades . Several acts , of devotion deserve to be mentioned . A journeyman hatter , named Turgis , who had acquired some notoriety in the late political trials , stripped and jumped into the river , and , by his strength and skill in swimming , saved , a great many lives . One of the soldiers , who had reached the shore unhurt , immediately stripped , aud swam to ihe assistance of his comrades . '
The * Precarseur de l'Onest / a paper of Angers , says on the 17 tb , the day succeeding the disaster , that the muster-roll of the battalion was called at ten . in the morning in the court of the Academy , and that there were 219 soldiers missing , whose fate was unknown . Add to this that thirty-three bodies are lying in the hospital , which have been identified ; and thirty wounded . Therefore the loss of the battalion amounts to 282 men , of whom there is every reason to believe that few survive beside tfee thirty already mentioned . It is hoped , however , that many are lying in private dwellings still alive .
Military Demonstration . — It was at this ¦ veij ? town of Ang ? rs that , a few days previously , another battalion of the same regiment had given way to a democratic demonstration , which is thus described in a local jonrnal , the ' Journal de Maine et Loire ' . —A battalion of the 11 th light infantry , en route from Rennes to Toulon , entered our town on Sunday morning , the 7 th inst . A certain number of our democrats went to meet them . The battalion was placed in barracks at St . ] Nicholas , at the extremity of one of our faubourgs . The soldiers were waited for on leaving then : quarters , and a party of them were taken into
the neighbouring wins shops . After drinking and sinking for some time , they came out and continued their noise on the outside . After the Girondins came the Marseillaise and the Montagnards , accompanied with acclamations in favour of the . demoeratie republic . Several passers by were struck and insulced . On the day following the saae scenes were repeated until the moment for departure arrivfd , and the sound of the drums recalled the soldiers to their duty . When the regiment marched from the place , some of the demo crats accompanied it part of the way , raising cries of * VivelaRepublique ! "Vive lea democrats du lime Leeer . '
A scene of the same description as that above narrated took place at Cahors , in the department of the Lot . Some non-commissioned officers of the depot battalion of the 58 th , in garrison at that place , and others belonging to a battalion of the 44 th , passing throsgh the town , assembled as usual to take a fraternal glass together . . After copious librations , they begaa to sing the ' Marseillaise , ' and various socialist songs . They were on their kness singing , when the commissary of police having interfered to put an end to the tumult , which had already drawn together a considerable crowd , they positively refused to obey his injunctions , fie wished to arrest the most riotous
among them , when he was grossly insulted , and swords were drawn . Several cries of Vive la Itepublique Democratique et Sociale ! ' were raised . The Conrrier du Lot" " states that -when M . Jaffas , the commissary of police , went to the cafe , where the tumuiraotis proceedings were going on , and on the outside of which a considerable crowd had assembled , he faund several sub-officers of the 53 th ; two of them were standing on chairs singing seditious scng 3 , the . choruses of which were repeated by absut fifty others of that regiment and the 44 th with great animation . As soon as he could obtain a bearing , the commissary requested that an end might be put to the noise , and observed
that soldiers , particularly those who held a certain rank , ought not to set an example of disorder . To this the sub-officers of the 58 th replied that they would sing , and thattt was no business of his ; whilst those of the 44 th replied in more respectful terms , and withdrew . Three sub-officers of the 58 th raised seditious cries in passing before the commissary of police , and a aerjeaut made use of the following insulting expressions , < It is infamoui that that canaille of a commissary of police should have prevented our singing , when we are under i republic' The servant was placed in the hands of
the police authorities , but immediately afterwards four individuals of the town endeavoured to pre-Tent his being taken to the Hotel de Yille . Seeing that they could not succeed in their purpose , they ran off to fetch some sub-officers , who came with sabres in their hands . One of them , a serjeantmsjri , attempted to strike the commissary of police with his sabre , but his blow was parried by a garde champetre , and the commissary of police , in order to avoid bloodshed , told his agents to release the sergeant , and on the following day he and another were placed under arrest .
The Socialist electoral meetings which * ere announced for Wednesday night , at the Salle Valentino and the passage Jauffroy , did not take place , notice having been served on the proprietors of those establishments from the Prefecture of Police not to open them for that purpose . The following address , by M . Eugene-Sue , to the democratic Socialist of the department of the Seine , published in the journals of that party : Citizens , —In presence of the name of the venerable Dapont de l'Eure , presented to the electors as the affirmation and the consecration of the republic Bad of the revolution of Febrray , I at first refused ihe candidateship . Tour delegates did me the honour of proposing me to your choice because they thought that my name mig ht rally to it all the
shades of the republican party . I accept this mandate as a duty , and I accept it with g ratitude . If yon consider me worthy of representing yon , my patriotism and my devotedness will be equal to the mission which you will confide to me . One remark on my past life . There are men who are happy enough to meet with truth at the first outset , instead of having to pass through error ; others less fortunate ,, and I am of that number , have to contend against the prejudices of their epoch , against the inflnencem the midst of which they have lived , and " ?*« ! ^ WS * * " * 80 dal P ^ ip les only with time , and by study and experience . This is fte reason why , twenty yean tgo , when I made my debut as a writer , I muunderatood the principles to wbica I was at a later period to devote ayWe-the
principles which I have since propagated ' and defended in my numerous works . You will fender me the justice to say that ' it is neither calculation nor ambition which has dictated my conduct ; I have not waited for the morrowjof the struggle to paes into the ranks of the democratic ^ socialists . ¦ As democrat . I profess that the republic and the universal suffrage are above the caprice of majorities ; ine majority has no more the right to alienate the rattytf ^ ggS i ^ rjSKir ^^ -- ; tmm
m neople because I have seen thearusan and he pea-K ita wSfof Wad in consequence of want of em-Zmen ^ -exis ting with difficulty they and their £ and children , on insufficient and uncertain wa ges ; because I have seen the old man , worn out with age and labo ur , die without a place of refuge in the most frig htful misery ; because 1 have seen the agriculturist , manufacturer , and tradesman ruined , their families in despair , in consequence of the bad organisation of credit . I am a socialist from reason , because I am convinced of the
insufficiency of charity , of alms-giving , and of all palliative measures ; it is necessary to destroy pauperism in the very bud , and to solve at any cost the fearful problem of misery . In the constitution of 1848 , to which all good citizens should attach themselves , there is an article which contains in embryo the greater number of the ameliorations now claimed by the socialists ; I allude to Art . 13 . This article is conceived as follows : — ' The constitution guarantees to the citizens liberty of work and industry . Society favours and encourages the development of work , by
gratuitous primary instruction , professional education equality of relations between the master and workman , institutions of foresight and credit , agricultural institutions , voluntary associations , and the establishment by the state , by departments and communes , of public works calculated to occupy unemployed arms ; society furnishes assistance to abandoned children , to the infirm , to the aged , without resource , to whom their families can afford no aid . That article , if executed in good faith and on a broad Bcale , guarantees to every one employment , education , and credit ; and , consequently , comfort , independence , and security both for the present and the
future ; that article faithfully executed renders all social reforms possible , and may pnt an end for ever to the era of violent revolutions . Poor people and bourgeois , farmers , manufacturers , soldiers , and tradesmen , all children of the same family , we are bound to one another , if not in prosperity , at least in distress and misfortune . The future will idemnify us for the present—peace , conciliation , hope , oblivion of fratricidal struggles—for the country equally deplores all the children it has lost . The enemies of the republic alone profit by our divisions : let us unite ; let us labour in concert for our common happiness and for the consolidation of the republic '
• April 19 th , 1850 . Eugene Sue . Saturday . —Everything is coloured by the excitement of the approaching election . The walls are covered with electioneering placards ; the newspapers are headed with the names and characteristics of their respective candidates . A much greater show of union and enthusiasm is made by the moderates in their support of Leclerc , than by their adversaries in favour of Eugene Sue . But this is the result of art . The'Voix du Peuple' of this morning denies the trait of heroism upon which the candidacy is founded , and details the real fac t * , or what it alleges to be such , in terms so circumstantial that the whole story , until presented in some more authentic shape , must be considered as highly embellished .
The debate which took p lace in the Assembly yesterday was highly important . The Assembly adopted the principle of transportation for political offences . The place of transportation is to be the Valley of Waithau , in the Marquesas Islands . The ' Voix * du Peuple' was seized yesterday at the PosUoffice , and in its offices , for having published an article signed Proudhon , entitled ' Election of 28 th Ap ril—To the Bourgeoise , ' and referring also to the catastrophe at Angers . The responsible editor of the paper and the author of the article are to be prosecuted—1 . For exciting to hatred and contempt of the republic ; 2 . For exciting citizens to hatred of each other ; 3 . For excitations to the
soldiers with the view of seducing them from their military duties , and from the obedience they owe to their chiefs . The following is the article : — ' Will you vote for civil war or for concord ? Civil war ? But who , then , would wage it for you ? Where would you find an army ? Who would be your soldiers ? The army ! here it is , made Socialist from the first to the last man . The army ! it has received its democratic baptism in the waters of the Maine . A battalion of this young and brave army DBS been swallowed up , because it was being aenl to Africa ; because , in order to go to Africa , it was made to go round about ; because , this circuitous route had for pretext to withdraw it from the fraternal salutations of the republicans of Angers . God forbid that we should accuse the men in power of an atrocious perfidy - They bitterly deplore , we are
well aware , this frightful catastrophe ! But is it less true , that blindness in political matters engenders misfortune , and that the misfortune which occurs to a government is always attributed to it as a crime ? The Catholic church has its legend of the forty martyrs ; they were forty Christian soldiers , whom theimperial reaction caused to perish by exposing them naked during the ni g ht in a frozen pool of water . Socialism will also have its legend , not of forty , but of four hundred martyrs ; there is progress in all things . They are four hundred young soldiers , whom the royalist reaction desired to punish , by a severe campaign , for their devotedness to the republic , and who lost their lives , marching in serried columns over the fragile bridge over the Maine . Is this enough of blood r—enough of dead bodies ? Is there stilll wanting a supplement to the hecatombs of June . '
Sunday . —In the sitting of the Legislative Assembly to-day the debate was resumed upon the remaining clauses of the transportation bill . The amendment proposed by M . Favreau was to restore Article 6 of the government bill , which had been pxpun » ed by the committee . This article contained an explicit declaration that the penal statute should not be retroactive . M . Savatu Laroche supported the amendment of II . Favreau , proposing , however , to leave the convicts the right of demanding transportation to Nonkahion , in case they preferred that island . M . de Vatimesnil maintained that the legislature ought not
to interfere in the question , the solution of which belonged exclusively to the judicial power . He showed that the spirit of the amendment was retrospective . M . Baroche adhered to the arguments of M . Vatimesnil . and declared that the government would apply the law to persons already condemed if the Assembly did not decide expressly the contrary . He wanted an explicit declaration of the Assembly on this point . This statement of the Minister of tbe Interior produced a marked sensation , and was favourably received by the Right . In the midst of the movement produced by the declaration of M . Barocbe , M . Odillon Barrot ascended the tribune and spoke against the retroactive proposition .
The sitting , protracted to eight o ' clock , was marked by a result of high importance . The retioactivity . of the Transportation Bill was rejected by a majority of 64 in a bouse of 666 . Thus , ministers who had set their hearts upon applying to the prisoners condemned by the High Court of Bourges and Versailles the new statute in all its severity , were defeated of their malignant intention by a large majority . M . Proudhon has been transferred to Doullens , for which place he set out yesterday morning ac > companied by the two agents of police . AH the newspapers of Angers were seized on Satnrday , for the accounts they gave of the disasters oftheI 6 thinat .
The number missing from the battalion of the 11 th , which was precipitated into the Mail is 219 . 181 were interred on the 19 th in the same grave . The number of wounded is fifty . seven . The river is dragged to discover the bodies of the remaining thirty-eight . The only civilians who perished were two agents of the police , who were stationed on the bridge at the moment . Two sergeants of the 63 rd of the Line at Wissenbourg , Alsace , paraded the streets of that town on the 15 tb , shouting for the Democratic Socialist Bepnblic , and carrying a red flag . The Mayor tried to arrest them , but was ill-treated . They were however at length arrested and conducted to prison . One of the sergeants had been formerly in the Garde Mobile . _•_ .. _
General Castellane , on his arrival at Tours , had expressed a wish to review the National Guards , and re «« ted the Prefect to g » w imtracfioni to
" that effect to the * Colonel . The Prefect , however , Swing been informed that some of the National Guards intended to avail themselves of the occasion to manifest their Socialist opinions by cries in favour of the Democratic and Socialist ; Republic , thsught nroner to countermand the review , which was to have taken place simultaneously with that of tbe troops of the garrison . This measure excited the displeasure of tbe National Guard ,, and the colonel and all the officers immediately tendered their resignation to the Prefect . ; - * The 25 th Regiment of the Line is about to leave the garrison of Paris . The ' Prease' says , within the last fifteen days eleven p rivates of that regiment have been transport ed to Africa for holding democratic opinions . •¦ ::
_ _ .. , „; :: The ' National' states that the corps of Sapeurs Pompiers ( firemen ) of Paris are to be disbanded , in consequence of their Republican opinions . M Emile Olivia , former Commissary of the Provisional government , and subsequently Prefect of the Bouches du Rhone and of the Haute Marne , was tried before the assize court of Draguignan on the 13 th instant , for having opened a political club without permission . He was acquitted by the
Yesterday an order was issued by the Prefect of Police , that no evening papers should be sold in the streets of Paris , excepting the government papers , the' Palrie' and the ' Moniteur ' du Soir . The consequence is , that the ' Evenement , ' the Estafette , ' and , I believe , the ' Gazette de France , ' are no longer to be procured . Intimation has been g iven to all those who sell papers , that if they should contravene the new order they will be
deprived of their licences . Monday . —In the Bitting of the Legislative Assembly this afternoon , the members of the cabinet appeared aa usual on their bench . The debate was resumed on the Transportation Bill . M . Savatier Laroche , at the request of his parly , withdrew his amendment , which proposed that offenders convicted before the pass ' ing of the law should suffer transportation , if they preferred it , to their present punishment . ' ; M . Pierre Leroux proposed an amendment allowing the families of transported convicts to follow .
M . Rodat , the reporter , said that in fact the families mig ht follow , but to consign this permission in a clause of the act mig ht cause serious embarrassment to the government and to the penal colony . M . Heurtier proposed an analogous amendment . M . Rouher , Minister of Justice , opposed the amendment , and demanded for the government entire liberty to decide upon what would be proper to do in such cases . M . de Lamartine then ascended the tribune , and supported the amendment on the ground of humanity . «» , . . Heurtier ' s amendment was rejected by 361 against
302 . * ' « r On the invitation of the commissaries of police , a certain number of news hawkers have had to present themselves at the Prefecture of Police , to obtain a renewal of their permissions . There the new permissions given to them state that they must confine themselves to selling the Moniteur du Soir , the ' Patrie , ' and the « Gazette of France . We caused it to-be observed , ' say several of the dealers that we ordinarily sell 100 copies of the ' Evene . ment' for ten of the Patrie , ' five of the , ' Moniteur , four of the ' Gazette , and we demanded that the ' Evenement' and the' Eatafette' should be added to the list . But we were told that if the police found
on our stalls a single number of the Evenement / our perm issions should be immediately withdrawn . ' M . de Girardin went at half-past ten to the woman who sits be / ore Tortoui's , and asked for a copy of the 'Evenement . ' She said she had not the Evenement , ' and could not sell iti The editor of the Presse' then demanded the presence of a sergeant de ville to take note of the refusal ; a crowd collected , and soon after two sergens de ville arrived . In their presence M . de Girardin imperatively repeated his demand , and at length tbe poor
woman sold a copy of the ' Evenement . The sergens de ville having made some observations to M . de Girardin , he replied , I am Emile de Girarriin ; arrest me and take me to the Prefecture of Police . ' 'Ifyou be M . Emile de Girardin , ' replied one of the sergens de ville , ' you must know the way to the Prefecture , and do Hot require to be taken there . ' M . de Girardin then went away crying with much excitement , ' I made Cavaignac pay dear for my eleven days' imprisonment , and I shall know how to make those who have done this pay
also . On the same subject the correspondent of the 'Chronicle' says : —Last night ( Sunday ) a considerable sensation was created on the , Boulevards by the measures taken by the Prefect of Police to prevent the sale of the' Evenement' and the' Estafetle , ' evening papers . All newsvendora found in possession of either of these papers , and not being the possessors of shops , had their papers seized , and were themselves conducted to prison . The sergens de vile examined every news stall on the Boulevards , and whenever they found copies of the proscribed papers they seized them , demolished the stall , and conducted the proprie tor to the Prefecture of Police . The only ground for these proceedings is that the papers in question oppose the Government . The ' Evenement' is edited by Mr . Victor Hugo and his son .
The Government has received accounts from Switzerland to the effect that M , Mazzini refuses to quit that country , notwithstanding the reiterated orders of the government . The French Govern ment threatens that if the Swiss Government cannot enforce its orders , other powers will do so in its stead . M . Charles Blanc has been dismissed from the office of Director of the Beaux Arts . He is suceeded by Mr . de Guizard . Paris , Tuesday . —Yesterday in the Assembly M . Pascal Duprat demanded leave to put some questions to the Minister of the Interior with regard to some alleged arbitrary acts respecting the sale of journals , The Minis ter was about to repl y , but the House decided by a large majority that the questions should be adjourned for a month . The sitting was concluded at a quarter past six o ' clock .
The Socialist meeting which was to have taken place yesterday ; in the rue Martel was prevented by the police . Several soldiers were tried yesterday before a court-martial , sitting in Paris , for having broken their muskets . When called on for their defence , they replied they had acted so in order to be sent to Africa . The President told them that he would not grant them a premium for crime , and sentenced them to two years ' imprisonment . Count Zimoyski , whose extradition had been de > manded from Turkey , for being concerned in the insurrection of Hungary , has just arrived in Paris .
The committee of the press having settled that a tax should be imposed on newspapers , was occupied yesterday with fixing the nature of this tax . Two systems were proposed : that of the government , which proposed the re-establishment of a stamp purely and simply , the stamp to be of four centimes in first rate cities , then of two , and one in smaller towns . Tbe other consists in the application of one post-stamp to all papers . The . latter system was favoured by the majority ' as the only
one which would attain the fiscal end proposed . Several proprietors and directors of papers were heard in the presence of the Minister of . Justice . They wished that the Paris papers Bhould be subjected to a stamp of not more than two centimes for the capital , and four for the banlieu and departments . Tbe committee will take a definite resolution on Thursday . The debate will come on immediately after the elections . M . Chaaseloup Laubat is preparing the report .
Wednesday . —Mr . Curlier continued towage a war of extermination against the Evenement , ' which he causes to be seized whenever the sergens de ville can lay bands on it . As the police cannot venture to invade private dwellings for this purpose , the vendenses take refuge in the shops of liberal tradesmen , several of whom have offered to establish depots for the sale of the persecuted evening paper . M . Girardin declares that the Presse' having been singled out for extinction , he will carry on a war of resistance against the authorities , in which be will shrink from no sacrifice . He reduces the already low subscription to six francs for three months , and offers to take weekly subscriptions at ten sous . ITALY .
An attempt was made on the night before the Pontiff ' s arrival , to burn down the Palace of the Quirinal , the abode of the cardinerl triumvirate . Tbe windows of the Palazzo Cb / gi were on the same night , shattered by the explosion of a grenade in the street . : All persons seeking admittance to the Vatican Palace are submitted to the strictest scrutiny ! of the Swiss guard .

GREECE . , Letters , from Malta of the 13 th inst . state th =. t the contents of letters from Sir William Parker had become known there . The affairs of Greece were described as unfavourable . Baron . Groa , it is believed , bad written io Sir W . Parker that the affairs appeared to him too complicated to enable him to assume the . responsibility , unaided , of coming to any final decision . It was also reported that a short period had been allowed to Greece to meet the demands of England , or coercive measures would be adopted anew . Ruggiero Settimo , ex-President of the insurgent Government of Sicily , now residing at Malta , was confined by severe illness , and little hope was entertained of his recovery .
TURKEY . Constantinople , April 5 . —The Hungarian fugitives have left Broussa for Kutaya ( Kiutahie . ) Previous to their departure the Magyars drew up and forwarded to the Porte a protest against this proceeding . The Poles did not join in the protest . General Dembinski remains at Broussa until his nationality shall be decided . Achmet Effendi arrived in Bucharest en the 21 st ult . The Russians do not seem seriously inclined to quit Wallachia ; notwithstanding the orders they have received , they employ all aorts of evasions in order to remain at least , until the Anglo-Grecian difficulty is settled .
Count Sturmer has communicated to the Turkish government a despatch from Vienna , in which the Turkish note is excepted ; he at once demanded an audience for resuming diplomatic intercourse . The Grand Vizier replied that the Sublime Porte was very happy to find the Austrian government had adopted a more conciliatory tone ; but that being very busy just at that moment , he would inform the Austrian ambassador in the course of a few days , when it would be more convenient to receive him . The resumption of diplomatic intercourse may there , fore be regarded a 9 settled . It is left exclusively to the Turkish government to determine when the fugitives shall be liberated .
WEST INDIES . Tornado at the Bahamas . —As the Avon West India mail packet was approaching Nassau from Havannab , on tbe 29 th and 30 th of March , she experienced most strange and fearful weather . . The barometer fell to an extraordinary degree , fierce gusts ef wind swept over her , and she . was deluged with rain . On arriving at Nassau , on tbe 31 st , it was found that a terrible tornado had passed over the island the day before , and had swept the strong buildings and gigentictrees from off the earth . Every
vessel in the harbour , although they had not a shred of canvas on , were blown down , and literally buried in the water , while the tornado was rushing over them . Even a new vessel that was on the stocks was turned completely over . Such was the extreme rapidity of the tornado in passing over tbe island , that from the moment it was experienced approaching , to the instant it had vanished , scarcely one minute had elapsed . In the twinkling of an eye , as it were , it had swept over the island with a fell and fatal swoop , and bad prostrated houses , devastated fields , and destroyed human Kfe .
It appears that for three days before the tornado happened the weather had been rainy at Nassau . The showers were however , genial , and were doing infinite service to the soil , which was hard and thirsty . On the fatal Saturday , the 30 th , the day ' says an eye-witness , ' was ushered in dark and cloudy , and the lowering horizon menaced rain . ' . As the day wore on the clouds thickened , and the rain about mid-day began to fall in torrents . At a quarter to one in the afternoon there was a sudden lull . The horizon became darker than before . The
barometer fell to 29 . 74 , and suddenly there was ' as the rush of a mighty river . ' On it came in irresistible and destroying strength from tbe south west . Bains Town first felt its fatal influence . A great many of the frail bouses of the poor industrious labourers and artisans residing in that locality bent and fell beneath the prostrating blast , burying in their ruins the hale and vigorous man and the weak and tender child . The spectacle was the saddest I ever beheld ; near fifty houses must have been thrown down . It was over the ruins of fallen fabrics and cabins , and
over the mutilated fragments of furniture with which the roads and paths were strewed , that I had to wend my way . Lamentation and weeping reached me as I neared some prostrated dwelling . I saw the dead bodies of two men and four children and two women who had received frightful injuries . ' Grant ' s Town presents a mournful picture ; many excellent substantial buildings have been partially demolished . The ruins were apparent on every side . In many of the yards were fragments of houses that had been blown there by the wind from a distance of more than a quarter of a mile ! The north-west turret of the chief justice ' s house
was hurled to the ground , which it covered with its fragments . Many of the shingles were torn off the body of the house by the force of the wind . The walla and fences in the neighbourhood were prostrated . The kitchen in Mr . Tyne ' s yard , and an outbuilding , were thrown down , and the eastern portion of Mr . Arrabuster ' s residence received injury . Mr . Fulford ' s house in East Shirley-street , and Mr . Rigby ' s in Culmer-street , were blown down . Mrs . Fulford , with one of her children , was in her house when it fell , but escaped . In East Bay-street several other houses had come to the ground .
The admiralty agent and several of the officers of the Avon went over the ruins . It appears from their observations that the breadth of space swept over by the tornado was very great , but the irresistible power of the latter , and the shortness of its duration , were most extraordinary . A small cornpack building which formed a blacksmith ' s shop--in fact , a mere box , built with stone and brick in the most powerfnl manner—was literally torn to pieces and swept away . The governor ef the Bahames had a narrow escape ; he was just about to take luncheon , but delayed doing so while he finished a letter ; just at that moment the tornado came , and swept that portion of his house Where his luncheon was provided away . It is twenty- $ ix years since Nassau was visited by the justlydreaded tornado , the dire scourge of the tropics .
Great Fire at Trinidad . —A terrible fire took place in Port of Spain , Trinidad , on the 7 th ult ., which destroyed property to the amount of £ 12 , 000 sterling . No such fire has happened there since 1808 . Had it not been for a miracle almost , the whole of the valuable portion of the business part of the town—the substantial buildings and the immense amount of property stored in them—must have been consumed to ashes , and many of the most prosperous merchants reduced to bankruptcy , and numberless families involved in the general beggary and ruin . The fire broke out , there is every reason to believe , accidently , at about eleven o ' clock on the nig ht of the 7 th ult ., and was not got under
before six o ' clock the following morning . It commenced in Marine-square , between Wainright s and Spalding ' s stores . As soon as the fire was discovered the alarm bells on all the churches and chapels rang ou"t , and a number of engineB were drawn to the spot . A portion of the 72 nd and 2 nd regiments were soon there also to work the engineB and guard the property . The police , the stipendiary magistrates , the colonial secretary , and tbe Attorney-General also rushed to the spot for the same purpose . Wainright ' s stores , wherein 1 , 000 barrels of flour stood , Craddock ' s and Sauvagere ' s stores , Craddock ' s hotel , and Garcia ' a residence were
destroyed . The ordnance department with a large quantity of shells loaded for use , and a variety of other ordnance stores , were at one time in great peril . The shells were conveyed away , and eighty puncheons of rum were rolled on the quay to be thrown into the sea if necessary . The lower orders of the Port of Spain behaved nobly in rendering as « sistance ; even women were seen working like the men and many of those engaged in the Trinidad riots , hix months ago , were seen labouring disinterestedly in removing and guarding furniture arid stores , and thoug h they had sn opportunity of purloining to an immense amount , nothing was lost . As soon as the fire was visible to the shi pping in the harbour all the crews of the merchant vessels came ashore ) and rendered efficient assistance .
