Ytpyp. Tliis is the more extraordinary as the subject

about no oh a messenger from .the islands:;arrived at Sofel for a steamer to take away' the
people and fariii stbcic    The steamer had
scarcely. left wh en a gale came o ii;: ab o ut
half-|}ast two it became a hurricane j buildings were carried away, and the steamers at
Sorel were with difficulty kept to their moorings.   Two lads on a bargeSvere in a perilous
p os i ti on; thre e men. we n t in a cano e an d rescued them; they were found to be insensible;
the steamer could not venture, out.   In the
mean ti me a steanic r w as n ear Jsle de Gra ce,
the p assejige rs wi tnessed -frig h tfu I   seen es;
they saw houses swept away, and men,.women
and children carried on by the flood; some
were cling!iig to the trees; their eries were
heartrending, but those on board could not j
gi v e ^ the 1 east assis tan ce.   Darkness came o n
and it made the prospect of rescue hopeless.
About midnight two other vessels   arrived
from Sorel.. Captain Label ie, of the Cygnet,
with two men, entered a canoe and heroically
went were cries where heard; on the branch
of a tree they found a young; girl clinging,
with, her feet, in a tub: a woman, with two
chi 1 dren in h er arms, was fo in id on. another
tree.   For three hours rescues were made.
Great numbers were taken in a very exhausted state to Sorel. that night and next day.
One Iio use was carried away by the water; a
man, with his wife and five children, got into
a canoe, bnUt- was dashed among the trees
and got broken; the husband clung to the tree
for sixteen hours, having a child under each
arm; one died there and he saw his wife carried away and drowned, she being unable to
cling any longer to the tree;   a woman near
her confinement was in bed ; her husband
tried to get her up to go into a canoe, but
she said it was impossible and -implored him
to save himself���th*ey could see unoh other in
another world; while saying so the house was
dashed down and all fell into the ^ater.   As
far as is known eighteen lives were lost on
Isle de Grace, besides three in a dying state;
all the houses are destroyed, and nearly all
the farm stock.   On Isle aux Oars one man is
lost, and numerous houses carried away.   On
Isle Madame no lives are lost, but property is
destroyed.     On Ohevai du Moine 71 houses,
barns, &c, are destroyed, but no lives lost.
On Isle du Pads there.are seventeen buildings destroyed.
