GREAT FRESHET. AND LOSS Ol PDilPtMiTV. The rnln fell nrnrly every tiny Inst week ami riiM.1 t in v'-nobee. In on unusual hcichl. During Thursday night She wnrr rose nineh mnrn linn ,,.., I i m lour n chick in I li u ntnrinng began In tun over tho top nf iho pun nl gate into Hie canal of ilic Kenibpe Lock and Canal Company mi Hio west side. Tlii- however Would hnVL' doll,! nn mntnrinl iniiiri. I,,ii some part of tho rannl wnll below the uom ami uunvc me guirtl nato was so III)- .lll t..,nl.. I .."-.I I. I j ''i ' ' hi1 iii ii i in nn in li i nc win or j having hern bailnrod down by the ico m the January rrcslicl. and llins left in n very exposed condition, ihn wmer l.n.l mn,f, such a b'cncli over nml through tho linked DaiiK ol III" enrlli. hoforo it wns discovered, that it obtained i In; mastery over I he few persons that attempted In (.top it. In n Bhrrt time iho cairn I wall was s.) under mined ns in lent Mile way towards the river, nnd thus eau-ed the water lo pre? open the gates, in a phurt lime the water was pouring Willi great force through lite breach inin ilie niain river, nnd thus the brooch continued in widen rapidly, until before- night the bank between the canal and the-river wnsswrpt away down to llin mills. The heavy stone walls on which the mills were erected zeroed to interpose a barrier tn tlio current, but they were undermined in succession on Saturday, and late in the nfieruoon the last section of the mills went down with a tremendous crash, ond floated away. Meantime tho water had been wearing for ilselfn prn. digious chasm into the west bank of the river, being turned out of its entire by ihe Dam, which still .-muds firm, and will soon be high and dry. the river having made a new channel around it. Not less than four, and perhops live acres of land, hnve already been carried awny by the river, leaving a precipitous bank in some places seventy-five yr cilny feet high. One acquainted with the localities would be astonished to learn that the river has net unity undermined the old mansion of the late Judge Jindgc. This once beautiful plane, surrounded by largo trees, gravel walks, shrubbery, &c. with a broad "si reel below it, and a garden on the opposite Mile between Hie street nnd Ihe river, is now dismantled a heap of ruins. ovprhnninr a huge precipice near a hundred feel Inglil Willi the waicr rnarinir and foaming at "its bane. The house nf E T. ridgo H.-q. at the font of tho hill, has also been under mined and tumbled into the river, a-- well ns a stable nn the bank of the canal. Ol course Ihe road is gone for two or three hundred yards, and there is now no pas sage fur cairiage up the Sidney road, ex cept by a back road up the steep hill on the Mill Lirnoli. We hear of nn damage any where on Iho river bcloiv this, breach. It was nppre bended that the draining off t)0 ))r,ud would flow some pnrt9 of the lower street in Hallowell and Angtir-tn nnd Gardiner, but it has not done so. In Tact the water, though .-till running over Hie dnm yesler. day, had fallen lour or five feet below Hi.' dam, from which it is clear that though Hie breach has made for iiself a vcry wide channel, it has not made a deep one. In deed it has alrendy exposed a ledueol rocks but a few feet below the present level ol the water, nnd far above the common level of the rivnr. Tin- leihre mav be of grenl importance as a foundniion fiir mills. "The Dam slandi entire, and n large part of Hie western anuinienl, noiwiih. landing iM torrent ot water pouring around the end o u. 1 he immense chasm which has hpnn made by Ihe water. thutH.h now nnnil,,i ! 11 misfiirlnnn mm- i,,r u , . . fl misfortune, may turn out n, ihe end to h ne very thing that wa? wanted to make u perfectly secure Hie for nulls, nut of Hie reach of the current of ihu rmr; and if Ihe dam continues In stand, as it promise to dn at present. Ihe erection of mills on tho ledge will be nrnher thfikult nor e.. pensive, nor subject to ca-ualiies, as ihev will have Mill water boih above and below them. There is room for twenty ,-aw mill between Ihe abut mem and ihe shore, and a canul below can be mnde afterwards when wanted. So nlsothecnnnl on lln-ea-i ude winch is unioju.ed, can be indefinitely ex tended. The freshet has brought dnwn low, i prodigious numbers. For two dayn" Hie river was full of ihem. There ha, ;,U., been a freshet on the lenobfcot, hut thai river, unlike Hie Kennebec, overflows us banks in so many place? that frc.-hets do lese injury on it, iho swamps nnd low grounds on it banks serving as re-ervoirs of Hie surpliH water.
