Many thought that ihe fire insurance companies would pay the insurance upon an insured house, no matter how the destruction occurred, but an examination of their policies ghows that there is nothing in them which makes tbe companies liable tot losses by cyclones or tornadoes. The swath of tbe tornado which wrought such terrible destruction in this city is clearly marked through the State. Reports from Paducah, near which place the whirlwind must have entered Kentucky, give details of much damage. The new town of Grand Paver, on the Cumberland river, was destroyed and several people were killed. In Laurel County many houses were razed to the ground. From Crittonden County tbe same story comes. JLleavy storms are reported from nearly all the river counties. In Christian andTrigg counties, in tho southern part of the State, the loss of life and property was very heavy. East of Louisville but little serious damage is reported, although a number of houses were unroofed by the wind. On the farm of Thomas L. Barrett, president of the Bank of Kentucky, about three miles out, there was the most visible work of the cyclone. The barns and dwellings on the farm were scattered skywest and crooked, while the fences and stacks of hay and straw were strewn for miles around. One of the strange freaks of the storm was the death of a small male child, aged about eight months, the infant Child of James Crowley. When storm came up it was being carefully cared for in the arms of the nurse and while in this position was blown from the nurse's protection and lifted up in the air and landed some distance from where the nurse was found. When the infant was discovered it dead, while tho nurse was uninjured. Mr. Crowley, with his wife and six other children, who were all out of doors at tha time of tho storm, were uninjured. MORGAN-FIELD, Ky., March ter- rible hail and wind storm visited Union- town, Ky., and Union aad Webster coun- ties Thursday. At Sturgis hail one inch in diameter fell and the wind un- roofed several barns. At Sullivan the wind was worse, destroying many build- ings and wounding ten or twelve men and women. For several miles in Webster County, between Clay villo and Dixon, it swept every thing away. The wife of B. Taylor, a ?on of Henry Hammock, an unknrM n German and others were killed outright. Houses and barns were totally destroyed. Beds, furniture and clothing have been found all along the road from Morgan- field to Dixon. The killed and wounded at Webster will number not less than fiftv. GOLCOXDA. 111., March cy- clone of the 27th struck this place from the southwest, being accompanied by rain and hail in floods and volleys. The two-story farmhouse of Jonathan Robi- nette was roven to pieces and its in- mates were tossed about like playthings. All were more or less seriously injured, Mrs. Robinette fatally. Miss Lucy Robi- nette was struck by a flying timber and killed outright- George Taylor's resi- dence was torn to pieces. His wife was killed and other members of the family wcro seriously injured. All his out- bnildings were wrecked. A German boy, name unknown, was drowned. Rumors are constantly coming in of residences destroyed. orchards ruined, barns wrecked, fencing washed away and men, women and children killed or washed away by tbe rushing waters. EVAXSVILLE, Ind..

In of '.b" Macbiuery of City ot Paria Breaks Down And for Siity Hours the Huge Vessel Drifts About Aid Comoi to Her and She Into Accident Probably Keculted from Attempting to Break the Record for Speed. LOXDOX-, March 31.--The accident to the steamer City of Paris occurred when the vessel was 216 miles off Fast- net. The passengers say they heard a loud crash, followed by an explosion. The ship quivered and the thumping of broken machinery in the engine room shook the steamer from stem to stern- She began leaking badly from a hole which had been broken in the bottom. The pumps were quickly manned and the boats were ordered cleared. The passengers were much excited, but the officers remained calm and their pres- ence of mind and enforcement of disci- pline soon restored the confidence of all on board. The steamer Adriatic passed the City of Paris, bound west, and would have aided her but for the fact that the freight steamer Aldersgato, which also came up about tho same time, was able to tow tho disabled steamer into port. Throe tusrs soon joined the Aldersgato and aided in towing City of Paris to Queenstown. On arrival at that port the passengers assembled in the saloon and after a religious service had been held, resolutions were adopted compli- menting the captain and crew upon their able efforts for the safety and com- fort of tho passengers. A purse of was raised, which will be donated to the Liverpool and New York Mariners' Institute. The steamer drifted about for sixty hours before aid came to her. Fortunately tho weather was fine and there was hardly a breath of wind. Signals of distress were constantly shown, rockets and flare lights being used at night. There is a general feeling that giving way of the machinery was the result of the tremendous strain put upon it in the desire to beat the record. The officers of tho vessel were very as to the exact nature of tbe accident, and the passengers have very hazy views on the subject. There is a general im- pression that tbe affair was much more serious than was given out. or than the officers cared to admit. If it turns out that the break-down was caused by tho excessive pressure incident to "record breaking'' the effect of the accident may be to somewhat discourage that past- time. AN JELECTRIC LIGHT WIKE Sots Fire to a Grain Elevator and a Loss of Xcarly S30O.OOO Ensues. ST. Louis, March 31. Saturday morn- ing an electric light wire set fire to the five-story elevator of the John Kauff- man Milling Company, on Twenty-first street. Tho flames were soon beyond the control of the firemen and quickly spread from the elevator to the mills ad- joining. There were bushels of wheat in the elevator, all of which was destroyed. Sixty men were working in tiie mills and elevator when the fire broke out. Many had narrow escapes, but all got out in safety. The factory of the Walter A. Wood Reaper Company was damaged to the extent of several thousand dollars by water and flames. The elevator and mills cost 5200.000 and tho machinery and stock on hand were worth SSO.noO. The whole is a total loss, but covered by insurance. Decided in Favor of the Kaitroail. Ptin.AnEi.ruiA, March 31. Judge TJid- dlc. in the common pleas court Satur- day. decided against R. 15.

ANXAPOHS, Md., March is talk about holding an extra ses- sion of the Legislature. Tbe present ends to-night. The necessity for an extra session is found in tho de- falcation of State Treasurer Archer. The whole truth of the condition of his affaiw is not yet knovrii, the committee appointed by the Legislature not being able to discover the total amount of the peculations of Archer. Besides a new treasurer will have to be elected and the members of the General Assembly are inclined to fill the vacancy them- selves, instead of leaving the selection to the Governor, which privilege would be his in case the Legislature were not in session. It is now the declared purpose of the bondsmen not
