NEW Y6«K, Got, S8.—A dispatch has been received from Far RookawayY t*. I., saying that a large ocean steafiSship was ashore beyond Long Branch. The steamer was reported to be a foUf'mast* ed vessel, and it is thought that sha may be tho Obdam from Rotten! m, which was expected to arrive Wednesday. New York was pelted Thursday night and Friday with one of tho most pitiless storms it ever endured. The fierce northeasterly gale drove tho rain in almost horizontal shoots, rendering umbrellas of little use, and the wind throughout the night rattled signs and shutters till unbroken sleep became well-nigh impossible. The storm was part of the cyclonic disturbance which haa hung over the Gulf States during the last two days, gathering strength as it moved northward The storm has greatly affected tho working of the telegraph wires, although there has been no general destruction. Telephone wires wore also interfered , with from tho same cause. Mails from tho south and west were delayed from one to two hours through . tho effects of the storm. Officers of vessels arriving Friday say the force of the storm on land is noth* ing compared to the terrific fury of the wind and sea outside. Tho steamship Old Dominion came from Richmond and other ports in Virginia and fell into the full swing of the storm immediately after leaving the capes. The wind blew sixty miles an hour and the sea caused the vessel to lunge and toss in fearful fashion. The tide in the harbor was the highest known in years. The water reached the top of the Battery sea wall. Since noon Friday tho increase has been about four feet. Reports from all sections of Long Island tell of damage by the storm. In several places yachts and small boats were driven ashore and wrecked. No loss of life has yet been reported. The vessels anchored off Staten Island wore compelled to let go both anchors and additional cables to prevent their being washed ashore. A number of the smaller craft lying anchored along the shores were swamped. Several were carried by the high tide far up on the beach. ASBUUY PAKK, N. J., Oct. 25.—The New Jersey coast towns received their full share of tho severe northeasterly storm that set in Thursday. The damage done to shore towns from Sandy Hook to Barnegal Inlet by the severe storm and heavy tides will amount to thousands of dollars. The greatest damage was done at Monmouth Beach. The sea cut a large gap into the bluff and made a clean sweep across the driveway about thirty feet wide. Before the large Octagon House at Seabright the waves dashed up over the breakwater and into the basement of the hotel. The bulkheads here were badly damaged. All along Shrewsbury river on the other side of the driveway the high tide has wroughtsad havoc. Every thing in reach of the tide was swept away. Boathouses, summer-houses and stables could all be seen either adrift or standing in from eight to ten feet of water. At Normandy-by-the-Sea the waves swept over the tracks of the New Jersey Southern and made such bad breaks that railroad traffic had to be suspended. Much of the bluff here is washed away. The storm did considerable damage in Brooklyn. Shortly before 10 o'clock, a four-story brick building, in course of erection on Haley street, was blown down, and John Lindsay, a passer-by, was buried in the ruins. His injuries are thought to be fatal. The damage to the building is estimated at 85,000. DAMAGE NEAR BOSTON. BOSTON, Oct. 25.—The old-fashioned northeast storm has prevailed in this section since Thursday night. It, is most violent along the water front, although no damage is reported within the city limits. At Revere Beach the wind and high tide played sad havoc. The Woburn House, built on the shore at the north end of Crescent beach, was lifted from its foundations and settled deep in tho sand. Friday afternoon a small sloop yacht was lifted bodily by the wind and waves and deposited on the bed of the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn railroad. The bowsprit projected across the tracks and was struck by a train from Boston. The boat was thrown over in such a position that the projecting mast was struck so forcibly as to throw the boat back into the water, where it sunk. Along the south shore the storm is reported as the most severe since tho big storm of November, 1888. At Providence Friday forenoon tho schooner Emily Bell broke adrift and is now ashore in the harbor in an easy position. Aside from this no disasters are reported, but it is feared that a number of wrecks will occur. Tho coast is closely patrolled by men from the life-saving stations, but the tremendous seas would render their efforts at rescue almost unavailing should their services be needed. At Scituate the wharves wgre flooded at high tide and a part of Front street is under water. The schooner Activo filled and sunk at her wharf, but all other craft in the harbor are in safe quarters. It was reported that a brig or bark was wrecked at Fourth Cliff, but the rumor can not be confirmed, The storm has been unusually heavy in Southern Vermont Brattleboro reports two and one-half inches qf rain. ZINA P. KING ARRESTED. Tb« Kx-Tronsurer ol the Michigan Alum* ol <t««ociuUou Short <M5,OOO. ANN Aituou, Mich., Oct. 25.—Zina P. King, ex-treasurer of the University of Michigan Alumni Association, has been arrested on the complaintof William H. Wells, of Detroit, president of the association, on the charge of embezzlement, A year ago last June tha board of directors learned of a shortage in the fund of ihe association. It transpired that King was short S17,000 and that be turned over about 810,000 worth ol property held by himself and vife. Failure to the balance led to hU sweat. THE GAS SHUT OFF, , Meat: Ketufn to of Cnnl, tho Cotnjinny Mavlnjf itt tttirnlMi fuel o«« to private Com* ittmefi Only, PlTTSBtnmil, Pa M , Ocfc, !i5.—An an* aonneemenfc that will. be made this morning by the directors of the Philadelphia Gas Company will create a sensation in the iron and steel world here, such as has not been experienced since the discovery of natural gas. At a meeting of the officers of the company Friday afternoon if wa s decided that hereafter no puddling furnaces in tho city or vicinity should receive natural gas as fuel. No date was mentioned, but it is said the order will take effect very soon. There are 1,000 puddling furnaces in this city, and over one-half of them will bo shut off as the result of tho order. This will necessitate an enormous expense in the changing of the construction of tho furnaces so that coal can bo used. In addition to this there will bo a heavy added cost, owing to the higher price of coal, as most of the furnaces had contracts with the company for gas at prices marvelously low. Besides, it is feared that something in prestige will be lost by this sudden and awkward move, as Pittsburgh has long been known as tho head and center of the great natural gas belt. At the office of tho company, however, it was stated that the move was not made on account of tho scarcity of gas, but because the gas could he used to greater advantage in private houses, as the price paid there is many times greater for the same amount of gas than when used in the furnaces, as in the latter it has been found impossible to place meters of any description, and, as a result, there is an enormous waste. The Philadelphia Gas Company at present furnishes natural gas to 750 different manufacturing establishments, including furnaces, glass factories, etc.; also to 24,000 houses as per tho secretary's report January 1, 1889. This number has grown immensely since that time, as the company has been steadily extending its lines, but even at those figures the daily consumption was 500,000,000 cubic foot per day. This is equal to 25,000 tons of coal per day. The consumption now is far greater, as the company claims it has more gas than ever, but that the demand from that valuable source of income, the private residences, is also far greater. The company also decided to go into the illuminating gas business. This will be done on a scale never before attempted here, as tho Philadelphia company has a capital of $15,000,000, with George Westinghouse at its head, and will push into this new industry at once. These two cases combined, the shutting off of gas from the furnaces especially, will give an almost incredible impetus to tho coal business of this vicinity, which has lain dormant since the finding of natural gas. Many mines have been abandoned, others are working on hut half time, and altogether the trade has been in a bad way. The new move, however, will stimulate operations at once, and the only fear is a scarcity of miners, as tho poor prospects have driven so many away that even now men can not bo secured to work what mines are running. VICTIMS OF WRECKS. A Score or More Injured by the Derail. m«nt of a Simla Fe Train Near Topeka, Kan.—Fntul SmxBh-up In Ohio—A Runway Hritlge Fulls Near Dubuqu«, la. TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 25.-The Santa Fe Denver express train which left here at 1:15 p. m. was. wrecked thirteen miles south of the city Friday. The train left the track at a curve just this side of Wakarusa, a small station where the train does not stop. The engine kept the track and the tender left the rails, turning upon its side.

DUBUQUE, la., Oct. 25.—A serious accident occurred Friday evening on the Illinois Central at Cascade crossing, six miles from this city, where a new iron bride is being constructed.

There were twenty-five men working on the bridge, and as it went down they jumped for their lives. The distance was sixteen feet. Most of them escaped, but several were badly hurt. The water-boy for the gang, Robert Keatty, of Center Grove, was caught by a falling car and killed, Dan Doherty, of Chicago, was thrown to the bottom and pinned down with his head above the water.
