The bodies of thosn drowned in Luke Pepin last night, to the number of 62, arrived in this city this morning. The whole town is in mourning. The bodies were curried to their respective homes.

PAUL, July to the testimony of those who witnessed the storm, it first gathered in the vicinity of Snail Lake, several miles to the northwest of Lake Gervais, and something 'like eight miles from St. Paul." It proceeded slowry gen- eral movement, and first began its work of destruction about three miles from Schurmeier by destroying some good cottages, a barn and several windmills. After this it seemed to bound into the air, striking the earth again near the hamlet of Little Can- ada, where the first Berious damage was done. Again it skipped a space of about a mile, and once again low- ered to the earth and resumed its work of destruction. Its fury culminated near the shore of Lake Gervais, where five deaths were caused. Onco again the storm seemed to rebound into the air, only to return to the earth half a mile further on, where the ruins of the Place and its bruised inmates were left to bear witness to its relent- less power. Here its force seemed to to be spent, and as it proceeded east- ward it assumed simply the nature of a high wind, accompanied by a thun- der storm. Hail as large as medium-sized olives was ono of the features at White Bear. SILVER A HUMAN REMAINS FOUND, The President Having Signed It.
