The wind blew pretty strongly ail day, but ahortly before eight increased considerably m violence. AMr Bail was exhibiting a diorama m the aohoolroom, where a good portion of the inhabitants of the neighborhood had assembled. Juafc as the first picturo was being shown, nows arrived that maoh destruction was bolng oanaed by tho wind, whereupon the men present set oat to render what assistance they coald. It was found that the workshop of Mr W. Dollow, wheelwright, had been completely wreoked, the roadway being strewn with the remains of the building. The party hearing that Jackman's hoo.se had been blown down proceeded thither. Thoy found that some of the roof had gone, but by stretching wires they succeeded In preventing further damage, whloh, but for their efforts, mnst inevitably have been caused. Half the iron roof of Me J, Dallow'o blacksmith's shop was - stripped, soma of the sheets being oarried by the wind for more tbnn a mile. Both the obimneys In the shop were blown down. A new bouse belonging to Mr H. Haane also acffared. The baok door gave way before a gust of wind, the consequence being that the wind got Inside tho house and started the north-ens'- wall, whloh was blown out about eight loohflß. Mr Huaso managed, by the aid of levers, to got the wall baok to Ita original position, and make It fast with iron straps. Mr W. Dollow'a oblmney blew down levol with ths top of tbe house, and It Is said that the school has been shifted about an inch on its foundations. I understand th<st maoh damage has been | caused at Montalto. Several sheep troughs ▼ere blown away and encashed to atomn, and straw ataoks demolished; Mr Keiney's stablo waa blown down. Great ■i has been tho damage caused to buildings it can be made good, bat the most serlons loss is that occasioned to land that has just been Botvn m crop, the damage cnusnd m this way beiog very great. Mr D. Kullahsn, Mr SeweU, and Mr Sutherland are euffsrera from this cause, and though I have not yet heard how the land further away from Mayfield has fared, I am nfrald that a great deal of damage has been done, Abont ten o'clock on Tuesday night it commenced to rain very heavily and continued during the ntghfc. On Wedttcßdny morning there wns a fall of snow whloh waa auoeeeded by another steady down poor of rain.
