New York Oct. 13.—After pirouetting along the coast for several days, causing devastation and terror wherever its force was felt, the West Indian hurricane has finally oi'on lost trsick of in midocean. The ileui-nuai; i:> i.i.f torceof the wind was a welcome change u> shipmasters and others interested in the shipping interests, and also to the residents of Coney Island and those having property interests on the qc;::;;i-washed strip of sand.

The race course was covered with an average depth of two feet of water. The tracks of the trolley lines which skirt the race track were washed away. At Other Renortn.

The planking has been torn up from Seventh avenue t>o Asbury tivenue, a distance of over hnlf a mile. At the foot of Sixth avenue several summer houses have been razed, and the niouume'nt.marking the spot where the New .Era was wrecked iu 1S54 was toppled over and wrecked. •Jfcan Entertaluod for Overdue Stcamcm.
