The water scout at sew Castle. From tie Wilmington Del commercial ,. Sept. C. In yesterday about 1 o clock the people of our neighbouring town of new Castle were thrown into serious alarm by the Advent of a most extraordinary visitor which came very suddenly from the Clouds. It was first observed As an Eye witness informs us opposite the town on the new Jersey Side of the River. From the surface of the water there arose an enormous Cone or Cloud of from forty to sixty feet in diameter at the base very dense very dark. From an overhanging surcharged Thun Der Cloud in the sky there depended a similar Cone and the apexes of the two met. The sky at the same time was not Clear and the Sun was obscured but there was no rain falling nor any general Shower. The water in the two Cones was violently in motion whirling round Aud round with the greatest rapidity and making a loud noise. It appeared to be caught up from the River in great volume and portions which fell Back in Spray shone and sparkled brightly making the whole spectacle most Beautiful though terrifying to the beholder. The spout moved rapidly across Tho River talking perhaps some ten or fifteen minutes to reach this Side. It entered tie town of new Castle on the upper Side and struck first a Frame dwelling on Tho River Bank occupied by a coloured family. The Force of the Shock was tremendous yet the column of water did not envelope the House but rather brushed against it. The weather boarding was torn off every window burst and the Frame studding of the building wrenched out of the Fence around was torn Loose and carried away. After this it passed in across the lots toward the shops of sir. John Churnside tearing up fences and everything that came in its Way fortunately for or. Churnside it passed to the North of his shops the Edge of the maelstrom however reached some wagons drills and mowing machines standing it the end of the shop. A two horse express Wagon was carried several rods and after being tossed about in every conceivable manner was thrown out broken almost a to atoms. Another Dearborn was drawn in and torn to pieces. A Large heavy was gathered rip and set Down on the opposite Side of the Road. Near Here a Little child was carried some distance perhaps a Hundred feet Over the Fence into a neighbouring Yard where it was 6et Down uninjured. As it crossed the Road immense Clouds of dust and other matter were caught up and whirled around with the water. The Hurricane or whatever it might now to called proceeded on its Way up the Meadow of or. Janvier taking up everything that came in Tho Way of Quot its Progress horses and cattle making Good time to get out of its Woy. The storm now appeared to he on the decrease.

It Trio involution in Spain. From the u. T. Tribune dispatches from Madrid Are to the 28th of August and of the usual Honor representing that the rebels Are flying and Tranquility restored.

Revolvers were drawn on All sides and a serious riot ensued. After the fight had been for some time in Progress a Strong detachment of police and the cavalry Force came upon the scene. The mob could not withstand the repeated charges of an organized body and were completely routed after having made a Short resistance. About a dozen of the rioters Wero captured by the soldiers and police and were Only with the greatest difficulty saved from the vengeance of the enraged citizens who surged excitedly about their captors crying a a Lynch them Lynch them a their efforts to take tli9 prisoners from the custody of the officers of the Law were however vain.

The police of Paris a Paris is a City which owes its usual Tranquility to a system of Policki which is better organized than any other in the world its spies Are everywhere its talons Are upon you in All directions. The very Man who figures As a photograph vender on the boulevards is often a paid spy and sometimes follows people for Days before they detect him. If the surveillance wore discontinued for one Day Paris would be a Whirlpool of All bad passions. Tho a service of surety a which Vidocy created is constantly recruited from All quarters and is of men who Are As bad As the criminals they search but who Are Given their Choice Between perpetual prison and hard work at detecting their former comrades.
