M YBWsAMD More off the Great Fn thtt-Terrible Deo* t ruction of Property. [Correspondence ef the New Vork Herald ] Easton, March 16.1846. We have again been viaited by an awlul flood, quite as destructive as ihht oi the 8th January, 1811, although the water was not to high by two feet. The Pennsylvania Canal is withou doubt, in many places, entirely gone, but the extent of the injury done cannot be known until the water lalla. The Delaware, from Saturday night until Sunday afternoon, wee a float ing man of timber, houses, barn*, all kind* of boueehold furniture, etacka ol hay, bridges, Itc . Sf\ The destruction of property north of thie place must have bean immenao The roads leading north and south are under wa'er, end we hare not been able to leern any particulars of the ex tent of the demege done aboee or below us Fortunate ly the Lehigh Canal has escaped any serious injury, the flood coming principally from the Delaware One smelt . ing furnace at South Kaiton, wee injur, d by the water ; Retting in the cupola, which wee in blast at the time. ?It j is seid about 1000 barrels of flour is injured by the I frsehet. The rite was to sudden that the owners could not remove i*. from the store houses. 1 hero it at this { time 40,000 barrels ilnttr, besides whisker, corn meal end oil, stored in this borough, waiting the opening of tbe navigation. It is a matter of great doubt among many bf our best informed citixens, weather tbo Legislature ot our State will make any approbation for the repnire of the Dataware Canal. It has alieady been a Icden to the State, thay having am ost every year to rei-ild a great proportion oi it. This canal will always be sub ject to tbe same destruction, as it is located on the banks ot the river, and cannot be guarded against tne spring floods. Tbe water on Sunday was 28J foot above low water mark. [From other source* ] About thirty lost of the track of the Northampton Railroad, wheio it runs along the west bank of the Con necticut River, above Willimeneett, was undermined and swept off by the water and ice, during tbe breaking up of tbo river on Sunday last. A temporary track was constructed around the break, and the trains passed over a* usual on Monday afternoon. The bridge below Woousocket, on tbe filackatone River, was carried away by tbe freshet on Saturday. [From tbe Rochester, Advertiser, March 1ft ] We are informed by a passenger who left Buffalo thir morning, that tbe city was visited by a tearful calamity last evening at 7 o'clock. About that timo the ice in the creek gave way, and came down like a perfect ava lanche, carrying every thing before it Between tbe foot of Main street and the lake, there were some lftor 90 canel boets, every one of which had disappeared, no one knew whither, but it is supposed were Jammed to f;ether betwoen tbe steamboats, and completely demo ished. The steamers United States, Wisconsin, Cba tauque, Frankfort, Indian Queen, and two or three oth ers, are greatly injured. The Chatauque had the upper works entirely carried away and torn to pieces. F.very steamboat lying in the Creek was more or less injured, except the Clinton and Indiana. The Rochester broke two cables, and dashsd down the creek with fearful ve locity, carrying every thing before her, staving in a por tion of the dock, and now lies partly under the dock.? The injury done to this steamer alone, it is said, will amount to several thousand dollars. About 20 schoon ers ware lying in the Creek, and svery one of them has been greatly damaged; some completely demolished. The steamer Dole went down the stream about forty , rods, stove in a portion of her hull aud sunk. The pro i pelle:: lying in the creek were all badly injured,^somo of them damaged to a considerable amount. It was generally supposed, when our informant left, that there were a co sidermble number of individuals on board of the canal bon's which have disappeared ; if so, tho loss of life on board these and .he iteumers must be great. Of course it ia impossible to eilimate, with any degree of accuracy, the damage done, but it is supposed to be not less then one hundred thousand dollars ! A largo portion of the embankment near Fisher's, about li miles east of this city, has been torn away by the water. Almost every stone of the culvert is gone. The cavity in the embankment is 90 feet at the top, 40 at tho bottom, and some 24 feet d.-ep, A large number of bends are now engaged iu building a temporary bridge for tbo oars, until the culvert can be rebuilt. At the railroad mills there was also a break, but it has been so far repaired as to run the cars over by hand, but not the locomotive. Twu of tho bridges on Honeoye creek have been car ried away, and also the dam at saw mill in Hen rietta. (From the Albany Argus. March 17) The river although clear and free from ice here, is said to he closed firmly below; end at Mount Morino, below Hudson, it has formed a gigantic embankment, and has thrown back the water so as to fear an eveiflow at Hudson. Tho telegraph, where opervLons were suspended a short timn during the late flood, was very soou in opera tion again- the difficulty neiog occasioned by the carry ing away of a single poet, between Schenectady and Utica. [From the Albany Argue, March 18 ] The flood of Sunday last made an extraordinary visit to the residence of Capt. Bogavt, in South Market at He hte resided in the bouse about ball a century, and has " seen service" in the way of freshets and floods ; but never till this time did the Hudson como into his very parlors. As he is the veteran navigator of tho riv-r, the survivor of tbe mariner* of'76, the waters are almost to be excused for this very particular attention to one who haa known them *o long. [From the Philadelphia North American, Mar. 18 ] Tno Lehigh Cenal fa as sustained but little damage ? Tbo water rose to withio six inches of tbefrosbet of last year. Abovo Mauch Chunk there ia no damage?below In two or throe place*, breaks heve been made, but they can be repaired iua week, with from 40 to 00 handa. At Easton,'b* Delaware roee 27 feet above low watermark, ard tbe banka of tho Dole ware Canal were seven or eight feet under water. [Correspondence of the United States Gazette ] Daisvillk, March 10,IS46?We have Just experienced one of tbe largeit and most disastrous floods trial has ever taken place in tfais section of country. The heavy rain on Friday night lest, together with the enow of Noithern Pennsylvania,i aised the Huiquehanua to a fearful height, something like 24 feet over low water mark. The fol lowing are tome of tbe particular* ol the damage done, as far as I have beeflwbl* to gather them Irom private *" 60 persons; for we have no marl communication, aud will uot have any for several day* to como, a? almost all the bridges have been swept away on the public roada. The Husquebauua, having ovet flowed the low lands about three quaiter* of a mile abovo town, together with the back water oi Mabontng creek, has completely sur rounded us, and the old town of Danville now lorms an island. Boat* ..are constantly carrying passengers be tween this part and north Danville, in which the Montour Ironworks aro situated. 'Ike tolling mill haa been compelled to ceate operation, there being upwards of two feet of water on the floor. Small slablos and a num ber of out houses and steps before the new houses of the Iron company have be?n swapt away in great numbers, but no other damage, with the exception of the break ing of a small dam across Mabontng cnek has been dons to the company's property. The wster has fallen soma 10 inches at the present writing, and the extent ol dam age cannot, of course, as accurately ascertained, though Mr. Brevoort, the superintendent, think* that it will not exceed much over $1,000. The mill wil he put in opera ion as soon es the water ha* subsided sufficient ly.which will be doubtlessly by the middle of tho week, to judge from present appears ocas. The Danville bridge,aod theCetawiese bridge have both been carried away, the heavy chunks of ice leering away the stone abutments. It is said that the old Northum- < Uerland bridge, which crosses the North Branch from the : island to the Sunbury side of the river, haa also been carried ofT. Tho furnace of tho Meaert Groves, was for ! a time in great danger of being chilled by the rising wa- , tars; but with indomitable anergy they succeeded in making a temporary dam 4 tret high around the casting- I house, end thus saveJ their works from having such a sudden stop put to their operations. The Bloomeburg Iron Work* are said to have escaped all injury, although Fishing creek, on whick they are situated, raised about 16 feet on Friday night or Saturday morning. Wa trnst this report may not prove false. Tho condition of tbe canel may be judged of, when 1 tell you that the floor of the rolling mill at this place, which, as I said before, i* some two or three feet under water, is located > feet fl inches higher then the higheat .point on tho tow-path. I The damage on tbe work cannot ba estimated a* yet, ta the water ie still overflowing it. Tho Fishing orook Aqaeduct, just lately erected, has been torn away.? Soma pieces of it have been caught at this place. The Mahoning Aqueduct, also, eractod now this winter, is torn from its foundation, and although not swept away, will require nearly as much work for repair as a new one. A number of large breaks have already been as certained. The bridge acroae Fishing creek, near Light street, in thie county, is said to have boon carried off > Much damage ha* been done to tbo store* of Mr. Wm. \ Kitchen, Jr , and Perry, Garreteon k Co., tho water bar- , ing reached nearly as high as the oounter* on tbe first | floor. A Dumber of families were compelled to move out of their dwellings, tnd on Friday Light the alarm ball was rung for upwards of an hour, to arouse our citi- , lens to assist removing the workmen, engaged at the rolling mill from their bonses, which were com pletely surrounded by water. All it ?* yet in greet confusion Tbe furnace* of the Montour Company. , being situated on k.ghrr ground, have escaped all injury, the wator not reaching them by several feet. Thi semen were drowned on Turtle creek, 3 or 3 miles , abovo Northumberland, on ihe wost branch of the Sus- : quehtnna. They tried to recuro a reft on Friday night, ! whan on a sudden the mill dam broke upon them ana carried them away. John Tuimer, a storekeeper, his , son, end a man by the name of Gundy wsro the persons alluded to. P 8 ?The people of Sunbury wore engaged on Satnr- i day to secure their town, by an embankment, from being overflowed ; but it is rumored this morning that the em beekment broke through, ranting a groat foes of proper* ty, and tho loea ot several lives.
