* I By the steamer Changsha, from Hong- 1 kong, which arrived at Sydney recently, some further particulars were received concerning the terrible storm which occurred in, the latter part of January in Japanese waters. It is gleaned that at Tokio the wind blew .from .the S.E. about noon on January 29, and then veered round to the N. at about 5 p.m. There were some fishing-boats from the provinces of Awa and Kadzusa in the neighborhood of Funakatamura, and five or six villages in Awagun, province of Awa. These boats were caught by the storm, and about 800 of them were damaged or blown over to neighboring villages, but only 200 or thereabouts are missing. Some were subsequently found at Ashima, Miura-sahi, Amatsu, and others have been lost. Old and young are searching for the boats daily. ' The number of fishermen in a boat is generally eight, or. ten, but in some instances only solitary occupants have been discovered in them, the rest having been washed overboard and drowned. • The condition of the villagers'beggars description, but they were being relieved by,the district office, which supplied them with money and food.
