It Does Considerable Damage Near Jeffersonville, Ind, Dwellings Demolished or Unroofed— Loss of Life Reported in Califor•, nia by Reason of Floods. VOJiK OF THE WIND. INDIAXAVOLIS, Ind.. Feb. 23.—A special from Jeffersonville, Ind., to the News says: A tornado passed over here at midnight. No damage was done in the city except the blowing down, of the 75-foot bell-tower at Howard's ship' yards. Houses rocked like cradles. The fertilizer factory of Yachem & Willunger, 2 miles north of here, miles of fencing and entire orchards wore blown down. The greatest damage was done at Utica. The wrecks are Dr. Jacob Kramer's two-story brick dwelling destroyed and stables.blown away, many cattle killed; Postmaster J. E. Johnson's house literally made a sieve by flying- timber, himself and family narrowly escaping death; John Hazardus' house caved in and blacksmith shop blown away; town hall completely wrecked and township library carried away. A 100 foot flagpole was blown through a house belonging to Mrs. Susan Strye. The Baptist church was also considerably damaged. The house and stables of Valentine Brindle were wrecked. Frank Brindle's house was blown to pieces. Frank Morrison's was demolished, leaving the family in their beds. Morrison is hurt. Hansom Carlin's residence and stables badly damaged; William Marshall's house unroofed; John Gunter's sawmill unroofed. The storm lasted but a short time. It was heralded by no warning and followed by a calm. It passed into Kentucky. The damage from it will reach mauy thousands of dollars. It was very fortunate that the town is flooded by the overflow from the Ohio river. .WOKK OF THE FLOOD. Los ANGELES, CaL. Feb. 20.—The late Storm was one of the worst in the history of this section, although comparatively little damage was done in the city proper. On the river front all the railway bridges were damaged and in some cases swept out. From the surrounding country the news is verymea- ger, owing to the telegraph wires being down, but so far as received the outlook- is not encouraging. There are many rumors and reports of loss of life, but the only cases so far authenticated are the drowning of a man named Wells, with his wife and child, near Wilmington. Undoubtedly great damage was done to orchards and ranches south of the city, where the floods were the worst in years. Many houses were damaged, live. stock drowned and fences and outbuildings destroyed. EvAXffVrLT.K, Ind., Feb. an.—The river at 9:30 o'clock Tuesday night registered 47:10 feet on the government gauge, and it is still climing up the wharf at the rate of half an inch an hour. The greatest uneasiness is felt among the farmers of the low lands. KALAMAZOO, Mich., Feb. 25.—The high waters of the TCalamazoo have inundated the east side and much damage has been done. Boats ^are used by many in going to and from their homes. SUMNEB,- 111., Feb. .25. — The Embarras river is overflowing its banks and has already gone above high-water mark. Large rafts of logs • have been separated, causing gse'at loss to lumber mills. Great efforts are being made to save stock in the,bottom lands. Farm-' ers are being driven from their homes, which are surrounded by water. iscijrN'ATi. Feb. 25.—At 10 o'clock a. m. the Ohio river had reached 57 feet 4- inches. It had risen I inch in six hours, one-half of which was in the last hour. This is doubtless the result of Tuesday night's rain storm here and in Ken tucky which raises all the little tributaries. It fe still falling at Portsmouth. The tern-, peratnre is falling here, and clearing weather is expected so that there is a general belief that the river has reached its highest limit. WESTPOIXT, Miss., Feb. 25.—The Tom- bigbee river is on a ' tear from the late twenty-day rain and the whole country for many miles on each side of the river is flooded. Great damage has been done to stock and crops and many houses have been swept away. The eastern' part of the state is under water and the damage has been enormous. It has rained almost constantly for Ihe past twenty days. ' COVIXGTON. Ind., Feb. 25.—Hundreds of acres of bottom lauds are under water at this'place, caused by the overflow of the Wabash. The river is rapidly rising and much damage is feared. YUMA, A. T., Feb. 25.—T-haGi a and-. Colorado rivers are both reported rising above here. Any additional flood of water will wash Yuma out of sight unless the levee' now • being built can be. completed before noon. Eailroad com- ; munication east and west, is entirely suspended, owing to serious washouts. SAX BEKNAEDIXO, CaL, Feb. 25.—All the bridges over the Santa Anna river have been swept away by the flood. All the bridges on Lytle creek are. also washed away. The American schoolhouse on Lytle creek went down with the , flood. ' Several houses . and barns along Lytle creek were .washed away.'.' The' Mohave river is reported ; 5 Ke.t higher than ever before known. All the families between San Bernardino and Lytle creek south of the city have left their homes and moved into town. The storm now appears to bj over. • SAN FHAXCISCO. Feb. 25.—Reports received from the different parts of the state show that the storm has abated. Serious damage has been done to railway property, especially in the southern part of the state. Soledad canyon, on the line entering Los Angeles from this city, is in as bad a condition as last year. 51 ucb of the new and costly work which required ten months to complete has suffered from the-storra. The pile work of the bridge west of Los Angeles has been badly wivcked. 200 feet of the bridge carried away and the track washed out. The entrance to the tunnel at Canyon has also been damaged. On the Yuma division eight bents oi the big bridge .were destroyed and the track is 0 feet out of. line in manj places. A bridge situated near Monte has been swept away. Between Pomona and Cuyamonga three washouts have occurred. East of Colton 250 feet of track, roundhouse and everything movable has been swept away. Many of the bridges between Benning and. Colton have been weakened and make dangerous traveling. The Santa Anna branch of the track is under water for long stretches, while some parts of the road have been swept away. South of Downey station the new railroad bridge was destroyed and the town- itself flooded. Between Seven Palms and Yuma the track is in a very dangerous condition, and over three miles of the rails have disappeared. Kearly 200 miles of wire are down between Seven Palms and Yuma and nothing definite can be learned of the condition of the track. THE CHILIAN INSURRECTION.

Chili. Under date oi Santiago, January 17, the correspondent says; The insurrection now extends from Coquirabc to Sierra Nesta, and, in spite of the reports oi the government to the contrary, some verj serious fighting lias been done. The opposition to tbe authorities is deep and widespread. The garrison of this city has been increased to IS.OOC men. and strict watca is kept by ail troops, as though an insurrection were liable to break out at any moment in Santiago. The news that the city ot Coquimbo had surrendered to the insurgents has had the effect, of a thunderbolt i-, • Snr.tiujjo. This was u'jt expected and the government fears that other cities will revolt. Gen. Urutia led the revolutionists. The cruisers Magallanes and Admiral Cochrane did splendid service in the hands of the Insurgents at the capture of this place. The cruiser Esmeralda bombarded the city oJ Talcahuano on the nigflt of January 15 and destroyed oil the land batteries. An at tempt was made by the- insurgents to land forces, but owing to the powerful garrison, which is loyal to the government, the insurgents were repulsed. About 103 men were idlled in the attack. Cruiser O'Higglns appeared at Valparaiso on the morning of the 17th and made an attempt to land forces. The attempt was unsuccessful. On January 18 a dynamite bomb was exploded in the presidential palace at- Villa Del Mar, and the palace was partly de- roolished. On January 19 news was received by the government that the 3,003 ihen who had been sent to Coqulmbo to flght the insurgents had been completely routed. The government lost over 2K> men killed and as many more injured. Three regiments of infantry in the midst of the engagement revolted and joined the insurgents. A dispatch received from Valparaiso on the 19th gives'the details ot an attempt to capture the city on the 18th. The insurgents were repulsed alter a short but sharp bayonet charge bythegov eminent troops. No further action was taken by the rebels. On January 21 the president issued a proclamation in which he called for 10,- noo men from the national guard. The national guard responded nnd were mustered into service. Propositions were made to the leaders of the insurgents on the Slst. ' The authorities would not state what the terms offered were, but it is known that the oiler was refused. On the nieht of Jan. 21 the Magallanes captured the town of- Pisagua without firing a shot. On jan. 23 alarming news was received from IquiCLno. The government would not make it public, but it was understood that the insurgents were in vorydestitute circumstances. Tbe latest reports were that the rebels were concentrating their forces on Iquique and that within thirty-six hours anotlier attack would be made. The government had sent help. At Punta Calderti on this date the revolutionists engaged the government troops in battle. The rebels were repulsed. The government troops suffered severely at the hands of the rebels and left thirty-five men dead on tne-iield. Under date of Panama, February 15, the correspondent writes that advices received from Arica, Peru, to February 2, report that Coquimbo and Pisagua have been rs- taken by the government.

The parchment conferring the order and the large gold cross have , been received by the Italian consul in this city and will be bestowed on the inspector in a few days.
