Tie danger on Tho Bridge was Well illustrated during the slight movement yesterday. At three different piers the ice masses were drive a up against the sidewalk tearing away the timbers. At the Keooud pier from tie South Danville Side a big Ico Cike was thrown upon Tho top of the pier which displaced Tho Joist under the sidewalk Bloch amp Benzbach heavy loses birr of finished goods ruined by the flood.

At about 10 45 thu j Whille at the water works sounded. In blew loud and Long there was not a Mau woman or child in Dan.

He will have everything repaired and in running order in 24 hours. By ton of clock last night the flooded sections of town Scro practically dry Tho cellars of course remaining flooded. All about town have Beu a posited immense cakes of ice weighing Many tons which 111 some instance bombarded the dwellings badly and did much damage. One of these Large ice cakes lies on tie pavement in front of Davil Shelli arts a store another one in front of the St. Limo hot 1 there is a big Deposit of steal 1 r ice cakes in front of the store of Harry Klie Bogen amp brother. Lower Mulberry Street residents a Trail of misery a. 1 loss follows the flood of lower Mulberry Street from one end to the a user. Even at the worst Tho res Ideal on the Street never dreamed of anything so Terible a slow Back water was 1 they had Ever experienced always giving them an Opportunity t remove lie hold effects a 1 eve Yinhing out of harms Way. Instead u that a terrific current swept through to a struck com aug a Roui All sources a i emptied into Mill Street. Porches a Jors a us luus hold effects floated Down and it buy residents had to to a eur from Thein Homes in boats. Tie current was very Swift and those who plied to and fro in boats had a hard time of it. In neatly every House there was some . Those who Weie Able to secure help succeeded in removing their effects to upper Storie but in Many cases great loss was sustained. At tie residence of Simon Dreifuss Corner of Bine an i Mulberry streets the water on Tho first floor was nearly six feet in height. Though the household effects had been removed the loss was heavy. At the residence of Justice of the peace Bare the water attained a height of Over five feet on the first floor. Mrs. A. G. Moody a among the heaviest losers on this Street. Tie accumulation of mud left by the water is most discouraging. In some Homes there is a Deposit of 4 or 5 it is very hard to remove. Refuse of All kinds Lias been deposited Ami Tho cleaning up process on this thoroughfare will be very slow. Ii any of our old residents outer pitied any doubts As to whether or not the flood of wednesday was As Baa As any that visited a Stivillo in the past Altor a Short stroll about town thursday morning to View the aftermath they must have decided to yield the Palm to the great flood of 11 04. Tho Waters had receded hut on eve i by Sido there Wero mod Aud ice and i ruins mud Wlinich covered the floors and was a on Tho Walls of the buildings flooded ice in great Pond Gerjus masses which blocked the streets and Lav at the very threshold of the dwellings and ruins which bespoke great loss and indicated How much time would to required to replace the damage done. It was at Points on Tho River croat that the most imposing spectacle presented itself and showed the full peril faced when tin terrible ice Gorge burst upon a at tin extreme Eastern end of Cooper Street tie dwelling of Willard Myers was Cut to pieces while that of John Wertman adjoining is Bent out of perpendicular Aud twisted and splintered so that it will have to be Toru Down. The residence of a or. Myers received the full Brunt of Tho ice Gorge which was shoved up Over the River Bank. The cakes of ice half As Large As the House itself lifted i lie building from foundation and Cut away the entire lower Story leaving tie upper part resting upon the ice. Both the Myers and the Wertman families fortunately had vacated the House and removed the goods from the first Story. Yesterday or. Myer was engaged in removing his furniture from the bed rooms aided by tiie great ice Maui which reached As High As Tho second Story. There was a great Deal of damage Doue at tie Corner of Mowrey and Cooper streets. John springers barn nearly new was carried away and throw la Over against Israel Dimmick a had a very close Call and is entirely shut 111 by huge ice masses which reach to tin second Story. All about this Point the water stood on the first floor of the houses 4l_. Feet j a p. Which represents a depth from the level of the Street of at least eight feet. One end of Hugh Bursell a Bam is staved in. At the lower end of Tho Borough the scene baffles description. From in front of Burgess Purselle a residence Down along the River resting against the very front of the houses ethic ii stand Hack a Hundred feet or More from the Riv a Bank there is a Deposit of ice made up of masses Many Over five foot thick. Those who suffered Tho most at this Point wore Henry Kavanaugh Jacob Stewart Harrison Sii Utt mrs. S. C. Is totally lost. It ii the foundry however w h. To the ruin i most Cou Piete.

It is Here that As great a loss As any will to sustained As u t Only Are the Workman s tools All carried away but tie Pitters Are rain Al and the floors washed. It May be several weeks before it will be dry enough in the foundry to get inv floors in shape Aud to 10 mine won. Tho condition of affair s in this depart meet must cause great loss of time which will be very us fortunate for the coins buy at present As Nauy Large shipments Are booked. A oar Load of stoves was to have been sent away yesterday. The entire Stock of flasks Many thousands in number stored in Tho Yard East of the stove work wore swept away by the flood. A thousand or More were scattered Over John r Bennett s Fields but by far the bulk was carried Down the d. Ii. Amp w.

Another was deposited of the grounds 4 the Dauville rolling Mill company while others were carried Down to Tho lower end of town. A Large Force of men Wero employee i thursday in gathering up the flasks Aud the d. L. Amp w. Pusher Aud a car were employed in hauling them Back to the works. It will be several Day before they will All be got Back to the Yard Aud Many will never be recovered. It will be several Days before there will to any traffic on the d. L. Amp a. Railroad. Tie Road is blocked As perhaps never before in history. Tho obstructions upon the track in this City alone Are a Mufti Lieut to hold up trains for Days. The Railroad at Mahoning Creek h completely torn up. One of Tho rails Valon a with the heavy girder supporting it is lifted three feet and held i 1 that position by Railroad ties Aud other Timber which were rammed underneath he i lie Force of the flood. To e track now hangs at a in clue of 25 degrees.
