STOIJM. Little Rock, Ark., Sept. i.-The Gazett's Hot Springs, Ark., special says: To-day marks an epoch in the history of Hot Springs. The city is gutted; ruin and wreck, meets the vision everywhere, and nothing like it has ever been known to compare with the results of last night's storm, which occured in tee night to late to be telegraphed. It was a water spout, and the valley was swept with a mighty tidal wave. The loss to property was fearful, while the sa-crifice of human life, under the circumstances, is appalling. Swift and terrible was the visitation; without warning the people awakened from their slumbers lo find themselves threatened by destruction by the mad waves,.strange to relate, but few people were conscious of the horrible disaster till they awoke to look upon the desolate scene this morning and drag the drowned from the drifts. Tlie storm struck the town about n o'clock last night from a northwesterly direction. It ' was accompanied by swift, cool winds, though not strong enough to produce damage. Rain fell in torrents from eleven to one o'clock without intermission. Indeed those who were up and witnessed the awful scene described it as one never before seen by them. Vivid flashes of lighting displaying as if it were great sheets of falling water. , At the close uf the storm great and ominous sounds mingled with the shouts of the people, and cries of distress went up from the valley. Such citizens as were in the vicinity of the creek and ravines went forth to render assistance. The flood on Central avenue, the principal thoroughfare, assumed the proportions of an angry river, whose rushing tide swept everything movable on its bosom. For. over half an hour the avenue was transformed into a torrent fifty yards wide. Boards and parts of houses came down on the tide and were left strewn on the sidewalks. Several large hotels were flooded to the depth of four feet with the murky waters. Many buildings were totally wrecked, up to this hour six persons are known to be missing, five of whom have been found in the wrecks of buildings. The damage to property is estimated at $100,000. Ceorge W. Brown of Lancaster, Pa., and C. H. Coolridge of Cincinnati, visitors at the srrings, have just arrived here from the hot springs and say that the desolation is deyond description. They report thirteen people drowned. Nine bodies had been recovered and inquests had been held on four. The lost are mostly colored people. The telegraph wires are closed and jt is impossible lo get further particulars, St. Louis, Sep. r.-A special from Hot Springs gives details of the fatal storm at that place Thursday night. The first building swept away was in the north end of town, the occupants, Mrs. Mattie Fletcher and four children, colored, were all drowned. The husband escaped. John Franklin rescued an injured man from the swollen torrent in the same locality. The bodies of a woman and  a  one year old babe were found in a drift. An aged couple named Harrison occupied a small cottage near the Arlington stable. The force of the water caused the building to collapse and the wife was killed. There were several lost whose names have not yet been ascertained. The viciims were principally poor people, living in small cottages, which could not stand against the storm. DROWNED MV A CI.OUD DURST. Denver, Sept. 1.-A News, Pueblo' special says word lias just heen received in this' city of the drowning of five cowboys in the northwestern part of Pueblo county, just west of Pike's Peak. A large party were at-tendindg the cattle round up, and on Tuesday night seven of them pitched their camp on Beaver creak, a small steam that usually has no water in it. Being very tired they all slept soundly p/aying no attention to the slight shower that came up during the night. It, however, proved to be the edge of a large black cloud that burst a short distance above them. The result was a breast of water six feet deep, sweeping down upon them and carrying, everything in its path. The seven sleeping cowboys were carried bodily down, but by a terrible struggle, two of them succeeded in getting hold of the branches of trees, and clung, half alive, until the Hood subsided, which was almost as quickly as it had come upon them. The bodies of the other five men found scattered along the bed of the stream three or four miles Below the camp. ASSAS1NATK1). Denver, Sept. 1. - |ohn Vonlka, a young Hungarian who resides near Argo was shot and instantly killed at midnight last night by an unknown assassin while lying asleep by the side of his wife. The murderer gained entrance to the house by cutting away one screen of a rear door, and escaping the same way. He has not yet been apprehended. Mrs Yontka, who has been married only a year was prostrated, and says she did not know her husband had an enemy in the world, and as they are poor she cannot immagine the object of the murder. ----to*----- GOOD INDIANS. Denver, Sept. 1.-Rumor reached here, but has not yet been, confirmed, that a collission occurred a few days ago between a band of Utes and Piutes in Paradox valley, and several on both sides killed. Hon. J. B. Galloway to-night received a letter from the foreman of his ranch in Paradox Valley confirming the rumor of a fight between a bandjjof southern Utes and a band of Piutes. The latter numbered about 200. The battle occurred near La Sal mountain, and when the courier left for Grand Junction several Indians had been killed, and the battle was still raging.
