Fortunately, amid this terrific element of war, there was no actual loss of fife, although manv were crippled and otherwise mutilated.' There was one es cape from imminent peril which we feel called upon to place on record. A young married couple Were alone it, the forest,' occupants of a new home, and distant two miles from the near est neighbor. They had retired to rest, and were absorbed in slumber, when the roar of the hurricane came, like a sonorous wailing through Lie pi imeval trees, and (he fierce winds struck I heir house tumbling the logs around and about them. The lady, after much effort, succeeded If! extricating herself, hut found, to her momen tary dismay, that her husband was entombed in the wreck of their dwelling, and that it would he impossible far her to relieve him unaided.— She reflected but a moment, when, turning to her husband, she uttered some cheering words, announcing he r determination too-o in quest of assistance. Forth she went, in the midst of the howimg storm, the winds singing a requiem over thp ruin they had caused, ami the stalely trees still crushing crackling in their fall before the omnipotence of'the tempest. Hut she heed ed not tfie danger ; buoyed up by a strong affec tion, she moved onward, an incarnation of he roism and self-sacrificing love, through the hur ' icane s track, and readied unharmed the resi dence of her neighbor.

DSSTRRRNVK FIRE— On Wednesday last, a little past noon, a fire broke out in the town of Bhcksville, twelve miles south of this place, on the \ irginia Slate line, which proved more de structive, in proportion to the size of the place, than any fire we recollect ever to have heard of. The town comprised from 25 to 30 buil dings, over twenty of which were entirely con sumed, together with most of their contents. Ihe fire originated from a kitchen stov, -pipe, in the dwelling of Mr. Jacob Lanlz, whence it spread throughout the entire building, ami ther.ee over the town. Two or (hree store hou ses, with a considerable proportion of the good*--, were destroyed. A. number of private duell ings were consumed with all, or nearly all of the household furniture in them. We regret to learn that our friends, F. Brock, Esq., Mr. \\ m. Pratt, John Brock, and manv others whose names we do not now remember, were among the sufferers. There was no insurance on any part ofthe property destroyed.—Waynes burg .Messenger. ' F. FF :!

Going from New York he cars pass the larm of P. T.

Terrible Storci at Buffalo! LOSS OF LIFE ! From a passenger who came up in the cars roin Brockport, yesterday, we have received he folio wing memorandum of the particulars of i terrible tornado which swppt over the region )! country along the lir.e of the .Rochester and Niagara Railroad, yesterday morning, about 7 /clock : At Brockport, the wind was so violent as to ear down fences, upruof and twist off trees, itui demolish chimneys bv the wholesale. Huge tailstones big as hen eggs, fell in large quan ities. At Albion the blow was not so violent, but t was very dark : obliged to light lamps to see 0 eat breakfast. (Was eating mine when the J!OW came on, there.) The Irishmen on the ca nal-en iargerrient ran, terrified, lor shelter. All Bong the road between Brockport and the Sus pension Bridge, the (ences were strewn like cob bouses kicked by spunky boys. In many places large trees were blown or twisted off at their trunks. Near Pekin, Niagara county, several large trees were blown across the railroad track. 1 hr>-e or four houses in that neighborhood were blown down. Heard a farmer sav, who got on the cars at P-kin station, that timber in his woods had been damaged to the extent of twelve or fifteen hundred dollars. At Niagara—south of HIP river—the exten sive car manufactory of Brainard, Pierce &. Co.. was almost entirely demolished : damage about §20,000. The building was of wood, some two hundred feet iong, and about seventy wide. A great number of dwellings were unroofed, and some utterly ruined. The gable end of the Scotch Presbyterian church was blown in, slick and clean, and the building generally injured. A daguerrean standing in the strept was keeled over, and the artist and his little son seriously .h- tatter-supposed fatally. A railroad car standing on the track was lifted up, bodily, and carried some four rods. Two schooners, sen just before the blow came up, off Niagara, were not to be seen after it had passed overhand were supposed to have foundered. At the Suspension Bridge the blow was most violent, doing more or less damage. The men who had just commenced work on the bridge, painting, N.c., ran off when thev saw the gale coming, and seme were blown violently from one side to the.other: one narrowly escaped be ing blown over into the river. The wind howl ed and sc teamed through the gorge, with a per fect rush. The bridge, however, sustained not the slightest injury, and no vibration was per ceptible when the gale was at its highest pitch. SJXKIM, 01- A BRITISH VKS>KL BY A WHALE. li'e London Shipping Gazette of the 26th .March, publishes the following report of Captain Jones, of the British schooner Waterloo, of I ortmadoc, which was sunk in the North sea by a whale: "The Waterloo sailed from Linn fir Shiedam (with barley) on the 19th instant. At 10, A. M., (•I the 21st, Lowestoft hearing W. by \. distant about 50 miles, wind E., strong gale and high seas, vessels under double reefed canvas, upon a wind, on the part tack, perceived a large whale to windward, coming down lor the vessel, partly out of the water, and swimming at a very rapid rate . and when about 10 yards from the sbip ; s side, dipped, and struck the vessel, under water, abreast of the fore-riging, on the port side, with' his head, with a fearful blow, when the vessel was perceived to heel and crack: and after strik ing the vessel, the whale plunged in the deep headforemost, and rose, his tail on high, nearly touching the foreyard, and then disappeared. "The pumps were fixed and worked, but bv half-past 12 found she had five feet water in the well, and settling down fast, when the long boat was cleared and lashings cot away, and nearly floated off the decks, when all hands (six in num ber) jumped into l,er, without food or water, and the master, mate, and two men, without jackets, and only one oa r and a piece of another in the I oat, w;th the sea running very high. In about twenty mi miles after abandoning the vessel she capsized, and floated for about the same spare of time on her side, and then disappeared headfore most, at about hall-past 1 n. m. "At (he time she capsized there was a French nishing boat about four miles to windward, and on perceiving her capsize, immediately bore up for the sinking vessel.
