The water continued rising slowly nil day Monday until about five o'clock in the afternoon when it reached the timbers of the floor ol the bridge, then began slowly receding. Xrarly the whole notthern portion of the city was submeiged. The water extending up Mero street to the penitentiary, up Clinton street to Lewis, up Broadway some fifty feet beyond Long Lane alley, in the rear of Mr. R. K.

In the residence of Mr. II. R. Wil'i-iMthe water reached to within a few imiii. .f the hccond floor, and the bailment ol tin-- residence of Miv. Peter Jett itill limber south was filled. On Conway street, from Second to Crosi?, there was n solid sheet ot water, which reached over on to Steele tieet, and extended nearly up to Coleman's fpring, ovefiouing all the houteson the we-- t &ide of.Steele from the rear of the house formerly occupied by Dr. W.

In all theie districts the suffering was gieat, and boats and wagons were constantly uoing io the asutanre of the unfortunate ones. Those who could not find shelter eNewhere were taken to the Court Houe, Odd Fellows' Hall. Armory, Masonic Hall, colored chutche and society hulls, and committers of the Council and citizens were busily engaged in ministering to their wants A meeting of citizen1- was held at ten o'clock Monday morning at which funds were raised and arrangements made to provide for the sullerers and subscription papers were circulated on the street, with one of which Prof. T. M Turner raised $1,000 in a few hours; but still many poor creatures uere not supplied. men ll The lumber merchants and of the city lost heailyas well as many private individuals, and il is safe to say that the damage done by the flood will not fall far rdiort of $300,000. At Collins' Water Station, three miles from the city, the railroad track was five or six feet under water and in the edge of Belle Point one or two feet, and as a consequence no trains passed between this city and Louisville from Saturday night until Wednesday morning, but ran regularly to and from Lexington. Many persons in the flooded districts wiio lived in two tory houses only moved into the second story, where they were looked after by the relief committees, boats going and coming constantly for the purpose. In the lower lying ground some who took refuge in the' upper stories of their houses had to seek shelter elsewhere, and their calls for help were truly distressing. It is said that some ol those who were so fortunate as to own boats refused to aid them unless paid exhorhitant rates. If such is really the case the names of the.--e soulless curs should certainly be made public. nnirT. Dan. Owens is the boss diver after coal. A house pasaiug under the railroad bridge broke oil' two of the under braces. A frame house, with the furniture all in it, passed down Monday morning. A number of were flooded and their contents considerably damaged Nearlv all the cellar-- , on Broadway and St. Clair streets were filled with water. Mr. II . G. Mattern took several photographs of the Hooded district Monday mornof the toll-Iuvk- authorities during the llood, for the accommodation of citizens passing back and forth. Guards were placed at each end of the wooden bridge to warn people not to attempt to pass over it on Monday, but a continual stream were coming and going the whole day. A trip through Craw in a. boat Tuesday morning revealed 'i vast amount ol damage by the water. Many houses were deserted and nice furniture was floating about the first stories. The trains Irom Louisville came up as far as Benson Station Monday and Tuesday, put ofi' their passengers and returned to Louisville, and persons desiring to come to this city had to foot it across the hills. Among those most active in looking after the wants of the sullerers and providing them lodgings were Jailer Dan. Shee-banMcClure, Meagher, Councilnien and Mnugan, and Mr. C. E. Collins. Church, Mr. Sam Shea made a circuit of the Fort Hill Monday morning in a boat, going down the river to Taylorton, up the bottom to Judge Hord's, thence down Brown's bottom and back to the starting point by way of Holmes and Mero streets. Mr H. R. Williams has, ever since he has occupied his present residence made a practice of driving a tack in the casing of a door in his hall at the water line made each high tide on his wall. The mark of the tide of 1807 is five feet three inches below that made by the recent flood. Monday morning, when it was momentarily expected ihnt the wooden bridge would he swept away, a chicken came floating down on a piece of drift wood, nnd when close to the bridge if Hew and lit on the debris of a house lodged agninst it.
