JUBILEE, AND A GRAND AND Washington, lowa, May 23— tional nows from tbo tornado makes tbo damage a groat deal more than baa boon heretofore re ported. Six more persona bavo died since my former telegram, making eight in all. Below are tho names not before reported: Ladan Ilonaol, Mr. Davison, Mr. Baker, a daughter of Jacob Seek, and two children of Henry Waters. There are many others who are very low, and their lives are despaired of. Those are all re ported to us within six or eight miles on tho tine of tho storm, Wo have not boon able to hoar from other parta of tho country to what extent tho storm has ragod. An immense amount of property has boon tjostroyod. It is impossible to describe tho seono after the storm had passed. It resembled a long tract of country that had boon suddenly overflowed and everything carried away, and as if tho water had suddenly fallon and loft every thing in oomploto ruin. Tho force of tho storm must have boon tremendous. Nothing resisted it. Heavy cattle wore carried eve a quarter of a mile, and thrown to the ground with snob violence ns to halt imbed thorn in tho earth. Wagons and farm implomonts of all kinds wore strewn all over. Even tho spokes wore broken out of tho wagon whools, A hog was found piorcodt hrough with a two by four timber, pinning it to tho ground. Probably a thousand persons from this place visited tho seono, and sondorod all tho assistance in thoir power. A. tologram from Sigoumoy soys that In Lnn oaator, Keokuk County, ovoty houao hut ono waa entirely destroyed, but no ono ia reported killed, though aovoral wore severely hurt. Keota, lowa, May 23.— Tho moat torrlflo alorm ever known in thia part of tho Btoto, pass ed through horo yoatorday afternoon about 3 o’clock. It atartod, aa for aa hoard from ton mlloa southwest, on Skunk Bottom, traveling in a aouthoaatorly direction to within two and a half miles of this city, swooping everything before it. Dp to tho present lima there are reported four peraoua killed, eight or nine slightly hurt, eight houses, three hams, one aaw-mlll and aovoral granaries blown down, and from 200 to 300 head of stock killed. Building material and agricul tural implements, including threshing machines reapora, corn-plows, planters, cultivators, ole.! iu every shape imaginable, aro strewn the entire distance. Tho storm seemed to coniine itself in width, from 100 to 400 yards. ’ It la reported that the Town of Lancaster, 16 xni)oq aouthwoat, la thia CWaahiugtou) county, TERRIBLE TORNADO. Washington County, lowa, Visited by a Furious Cyclone. Houses, Barns, and Fences Torn Dowi and Scattered for Miles. The Village of Lancaster Ee ported to Be in Enins. Eight Persons and 300 Cattle Killed. The Hurricane Appears in McDonough County, 111. Washington, lowa, May 23.—A torrifio tor nado or whirlwind, accompanied with hail and rain, passed over this county, aoouv u i*. umoo north of Washington, yesterday afternoon. It came up from the southwest, and passed out of the county a little south of Yatton. Tho tornado was shout one-half rail© in width, and tore into fragments everything that came in its course. Houses, barns, fences, trees, cattle, and human beings wore caught up and whirled through tho oir like mere toys, and then dashed to tho ground with such Violence as to produce instant death with tho animate beings. Tho houses and barns wore tom to fragments and scattered for miles around. Fields are dotted with largo Umbers driven into tho ground at an angle of ninety dogroos, end cattlo wore actually driven head-foremost into tho soil. Ono con scarcely conceive of tho devastation or realize tho force of tho tornado. Already wo have hoard of thirteen houses and many barns that wero litterally tom to pieces, and many others badly damaged. School was in session at a sohool-houso 0 miles north, and. tho tornado tore tho building to pieces, and carried a 14-yoar ’old daughter of Henry Rathmol about a quarter of a mile from tho school-house, and whon found sho was mashed to a Jolly. Miss Smith, tho teacher, and six or eight scholars were hint, somo badly. Tho wife of Henry Watters was killed. A Miss Gardner and a sou of Alexander Gib son lio at tho point of death. Jacob Seek was seriously hurt. Mr. Baker was badly hurt in tho back. Several of tho family of F. Campbell, near Keota, wore wounded. Mrs. McCoy was seriously hurt. * A gentleman, who was near tho tornado six miles north whon it passed, reports that it was balloon-shaped, with tho small end to tho ground, and moved at tho rate of about seventy mites an hour. It commenced its fearful work near Koota, whoro it demolished several residences. Wo noxt hear of it about six miles northwest, whoro it destroyed two or three houses, and, as it passed on northeast, it scat tered. to tho four winds tho fino residences and tmma of Alex. Gibson, J. A. Babcock and J. C. Culinghain, and also leveled to the ground tho dwellings of D. Coneor, F. and U. Watters, Mr. Carnnger, and Mr. Kerr. Many persons’ lives wero saved by their has tily getting into their collars. Bad havoc was raado with all kinds of stock. I From au oyo-wituosa’ dosoriplion, it is alraoat a miracle that anything in its trade escaped alive. Ho says that ho could aoo largo pieces of timber hurled from tho' cloud as though shot from a cannon. Hail fell that measured nine inches in diam eter. Some wore brought to this city, and four hours after they wore picked up, they were as largo as hens’ eggs. Tho roaring of the tornado was fearful, • and could have been hoard easily ten miles. At this place, six miles away, it was perfectly ap palling, surpassing in terror anything that wo over hoard except tho roar and din of a terrific battle. A telegram from Kcota, last evening, says that five persons wore killed about throe miles from that place. One child was torn to pieces. Our reports are from only a few points on tho lino of tho terrible destroyer, and wo cannot es timate tho amount of damage, but it may bo many thousands of dollars. Many more lives wore probably lost than those reported, and no estimate can bo made of the stock killed. Nothing heretofore so terrible and violent has ever befallen this county, and wo can only contemplate its devasta tion with awe, and wonder that so many escaped alive. tftnm in ruins.

Near Ayer a Grove, tho resilience of Henry Hiobort, with a family of eight persons in it. was torn all to pieces. Tho man and his wife had limbs broken,, but none of the six children wore hurt. Portions of his house wore blown half a mile. His barn, containing ton horses, was blown to fragments and not a horse hurt. Two of his neighbors, Mr. Mayor and Enoch Casebcon, had their residences blown somo distance from thoir foundations, as i‘ a Morgan, throo miles from Dos Moines. Tho brick church at tho town of Ho Soto was nearly ruined. Tho roof blown from it crushed a small dwelling, but Injured none of the inmates. Tho only loss of life reported is that of a man near Stuart, killed by lightning, hi bod. Ho was a yisitor at tho house. Name unknown. Fences wore wrecked for miles, and many trees are uprooted. Such thunder and light ning are rarely soon in this latitude in tho hottest weather. For over an hour tho play of light ning was so continued and so vivid that a paper could havo boon road by the light of the terrible aud lurid glare. The phonom ouon of fire-balls of electricity passing from the earth upward formed a feature of tho wild car nival. Some of those wore as largo as foot balls, and loft behind them a brood glittering trail of sparks. ° b Three houses wore struck by lightning in this city, but no injury.

Vrbka, FAincnir.D’a Ranch, May 20—4 p. m, “While Gen. Davits, Inspector-Gen. Bardio, Col. Groon, Col. Sumner, Col. Gillom, Col. Ilojt, aud Liouts. Rockwell and Adams, with an* escort, wore on route to Van Bremer’s, having loft the lava-bed about 10 o’clock in the mom-' ing, a courier intercepted thorn by tho delivery* of a dispatch. Qon. Davis aud tho Warm Spring scouts, who wore in odvauco, wore recalled, autfl tho programme was iuatautly changed. Gen.- Davis determined upon Fairchild’s Ranch, in stead of Van Broraor’a as his future head-' quarters, Tho place is about twenty-three milotf northwest of the lavo-bods. Captain Hasbrouck loft Boyle’s camp on May 7th aud bas boon scouting since. His command consisted of Battery B, Fourth Artillery, Troops* B and Gof tho First Cavalry and Warm Spring Indians—2lo men. Jackson had ckargo of B and G. Ho harassed tho Indians and soon found that his men fought well in every instance, and paid? little heed to danger. Tho Indians wore van quished. Capt. Hasbrouck especially praises tho gallantry of the B Troop and a portion of G. la the charge at Dry Lake tho men scaled a ridge* twenty foot high in tho face of tho Modoce and* drove them away. Capt. Jackson led the right and Lieut. Moss tho loft, and Liouts. Boutolhy and Kyle hold other bold positions. Capt. Haa bronck has not lost a man since tho Dry Lake engagement. Artona Ohokaus Long Logs and One-Eyed Dixie, two Modoc residents of this ranch, last evening interviewed tho fivo women captured by Capt. Hasbrouck's command, aud from theta* gleaned Interesting accounts of tho Hodoo oper ations during tho lust few months. Tho cap tives are Mrs. Wachmotol, Boston Charlop’s two sisters, tho mother of Black Jim, and one maid en whoso relatives have attained no notable dis- tiuctiou. They report that “ Slmcknasty Frank,” “ Shacknaaty Jake,” u Shacknasty Bill,” “ Steamboat Frank,” “ Ellon’s Man,” “ Hooka Jim’s ” father, “Boston Nick,” and aeroral other Modoca have boon killed, .and many wounded. “Gariy-Hooded Jack” carried a piece of lead in his body for several daya, and when last aeon was appa rently booked for the happy hunting-grounds. The inability of Little John to travel at a rapid pace delayed the baud which Capt. Haabrouck encountered, and got the Modoca into this last difficulty. The cauao of the disaffection among the Modoca after the battle is interesting, jack consulted his stolon chronometer, and, after sundry gestures and exclamations, promised hier followers that they should shod riffle-bullets as & duck does water, and escape unharmed. Tho confidence this statement inspired was rudely dispelled by Capt. Uasbrouck’a oncounter-i whore several Modoca were killed and others wounded. Indignation reigned supremo in Jack’s household. The Cottonwood branch tribe, from Fairchild’s, decided to light no more. This reso lution led to Jack’s clandestine departure. The Cottonwoods, numbering twenty warriors and fifty women and children, hurried to tho Snow Mountains, tho southern end of tho lava, deposit, preparatory to traveling to tho Yainor Reservation, and imploring pardon of tho Great Father at ■Washington. The sudden and unex pected advent of llasbrouck’a cavalry and Warm Spring Indians disturbed their peaceful medi tations and caused them to run and light during the stampede. Mrs. Hendricks, alias “ Limpy,” threw her babe, 6 months old, to tho ground m the hone of escaping, and was soon af tor killed by a Warm Spring warrior. The babe was brought hither and turned over to tho Reservation. They might have boon indiu-od to enlist under Jack had ha met with continued success. His defeat has dampened their ardor. No trouble ia now antic ipated that tho Modoca will slip into tho Yainox agency and incite the young bucks to mischief. Faikouild’s Ranch, May 21.~Th0 latest order' locates the headquarters at Van Bremer’s, whither tho infantry wont yesterday. Gen. Davis remains hero for tho present. FAinouiLD’s Ranch. May 21.— Artena Chokaa and One-Eyed Dixie returned at dusk this even ing from tho direction of Dorris’ ranch. Mr. Fairchild, tho gentleman who boa cleverly en gineered this consultation business, judged that the Modocs must bo at least fifteen miles away. Doth women said in substance that they had traveled a long distance. Tho women were taken to Gen. Davis r tent, and had a talk with Gen. Hardin, Col, Gillem, and Capt. Hashrouck, Fair child interpreting. True to nature, these women talked a long while and said little. Finally Arte na said that tho Indians were 15 miles from hero, and numbered fifteen warriors and fifty squaws • and children. The Great Spirit had caused their hearts to blood for tho white people. All wanted to return to tho fold and live in peace among tho whites, but tho present condition of affairs, with a duo regard for their lives, prevented them from appearing within roach of tho army. They wanted a peace talk. Lot tho groat white Chief (moaning Gon. Davis) come out and see them alone and talk over mat- tors, and through that medium tho par ties might come to an amicable understanding. No Modoc would surrender without a peace-talk. Dixie corroborated tho statement of Artona. Tbo interview lasted one and three-quarters hours. At tbo close, Con. Davis told Artona and Dixie to go to tho Modoc camp to-morrow morning, and toll tho Indians that ho should not come out for a peace-talk. Ho did not bollovo in neacft talks away from bis men. Tbo Indians must come to him if they wanted to talk. Ho would allow them to surrender, and they bad until Fri day morning to appear at headquarters, and after that bo should shoot every Modoc found with a The women told Fair child that they should not return to tbo Modoo camp.
