The rise.of. the Water M the.fitisqueltanne, Which
commenced on Friday last, has been tha most des
tyuctive flood that has ever been witnessed since
the first settleMent of the catintry on its border..,
Harrisburg, at the time of witting, is approachable
en. the bast, South and Wyk, only by water com
munication, and, standing on an elevated place, it
presents the appearance of a town sinking. into the
sea—the bcuses in the lower part of it beirig sub
merged in water, in some instances, nearly up to
the second story. The ground. about it, lower
than the main part of the town, are covered with
water, generally so deep as to obliterate all traces
of fences, bridges and streams.
Paxton creek is entirely lost in the mighty con
gregation of water., and' the Susquehanna, from
shore to shore, covering entirely the large island
which lay in its centre, which connected the two
divisions of the old Harrisburg Bridge, presents a
current of fierce turbulent waters, bearing on Itd
bosom an indescribable and innumerable mass of
flood wood, timber, &c„ that has been torts from
its resting places, as trophica of its irresistible
teivrcen len and eleven o'clock, on Saturday
evening the piers of the Old Harrisburg Bridge,
(that celebrated structure, the first built over the
Busquehanna—built by Burr on the A rch principle,
at a cost of $105.000, commenced in 1313 and
completed in 1817,) which had buffeted many a
raging flood, began to give way on this side of the
island and to yield to the mighty current and its
battering ram of ice, and on Sunday morning be
tween three and four o'clock, two of the middle
span of arches fell and were swept down the stream.
These were noon followed by two othere, leaving
but a single span neat to Harrisburg, which also
fell about two o'clock, P. M., and tloatcd majestically
The west part of the Harrisburg Bridge, extend
ing from the island to the Cumberland shore is still
standing—but whether it has sustained injury in
yet unknown.
Of the new Railroad Bridge, wh:ch was beini;
constructed by Mr. Kirkbride, all the piers were
finished and four spans of the frame work were
erected on them. Two spans of this 'went just be
fore the Harrislityg Bridge, and the other two spans
were swept off by the Duncan's Island Bridge
footing ageinst them in its descant. Thus the
Harrisburg Fide of the river is entirely stripped of
all bridges, or vcstage of them, the piers being
only discernable by the whirl of ths wilier as it
passes over where they were.
Two spans of the canteen and of the hriilgo al
Nunn s Island, erected in 1337—ear of the finest
structures in our country, have aloe been carried
away. Also, the bridge over the mouth of the Ju
niata, from Dunean's Island to the Perry county
shore ; and the bridge over Sherman's creek in the
village of Duncanon. 'rite dam across the same
stream, with the extensive nail factory and rolling
rail!, at the same place, has also been carried away,
and the works of Fisher & Co., are reported es
having suffered greatly, in the destruction of build
hip, machinery, etc. The nail factory is said to
ho entirely destroyed. The loss at this place Can
scarcely be estimated.
Front the high water of the Juniata, as well ea
the Susquehanna, and a knowledge of its effects in
termer floods, it is feared that the entire Main Line
of the Canal will be rendered unnavigable for a.
great part, if not for the whole of the opening sea
son ; and if the destruction by the flood has ex
leaded up the North and West Branches cf the
Susquehanna, niece canals may he so damaged as
to be irreparable the present year. It is a sad day
fcr the hopes .of Pennsylvania, and one that we
fear may be fe:t !!,..'so who hive pieced depend
ence en her ability to de justice to all.
All communication between Harrisburg and the
West 613 of _the Susquehanna is entirely cut off,
and must remain cc until the waters subside and a
ferry is opened. The trains of the Cumberland. (
Valley Railroad erri,ed yesterdey morning and
afternoon, on the Viest side, mid Hew their whis
tles, but after finding that all cominunication was
cut oft they moved West again with their load. of
The casting house of the Anthracite furnace of
lix•Gov. Porter, was covered with water, which ,
tae es high es the heerth, and into the furnaces of
the boilers. The furnace Was stopped ; but it is
supposed that the bloat will be resumed tc.inorrow.
Parte of buildings, water wheels, canal boats,
rafts, lumber, logs, etc., have passed down on the
bosom of the flood. One canal boat was brought
to shore a short distence below town, in which
were upwards of one hundred barrels of flour.—
The loss to individuals as well as to the State, and
to companies, will in many instances be severe;
and it is not unlikely that hundreds who,have been
toiling for months in preparing lurn!'cr fur market,
have been stripped and left destitute, A t.preeent
the looses can only be conjectured, end wo hope
that they will not equal the present expectations of
our community.
It is feared that great damage tee also bon done
to the Wiconisco Canal—but nothing certain

The following is a statement of the rise of the
Susquehanna at Harrisburg, which contained more
water than the terrible ice flood in the winter of
1785, or the memorable pumpkin flood of 1787 :

it was 18 feet 11 inches ;on Sunday morning the
15th, at . 4 o'clock A. M. the water had risen to 20
feet 1 inch ; at 9 o'clock to 20 feet 3 inches; and
at 9 o'clock to 20 feet 4 inches; at 10 o'clock it

We should fail to do justice to the fearlessness
and resolution of woman did we net Mention that
two ladies from New England, who arrived here on
Saturday last, cn their way to Missouri, tmaccont
panted by any gentleman, summoned the resolution
this morning to get into a skiff into which the mail
was placed, to cross over to tho island, (a risk of
their !Ives that few of ode citizens could have been
induced to'rnn) which they reached in safety, and
from thence to the Cumberland side by the western
division of the bridge. The bank of the river was
lined with spectators to witness the result of the
perilous enterprise.

New Agricultural .Wrinkle,;
A funny story is told of an old friend of ours—
one who, sick and tired of the care and bustle of
city life, has retired into the country, and. "gone to,
farming,"as the saying is. His land, albeit well
situated, and commanding sundry romantic preo
poets, is not no particularly fertile as some we have
seen, and requires scientific culture end liberal
manuring, to induce an abundant So much

,Once upon a time, as the story books any, our
friend, being on a shot' visit to this city, attended
an auction sale down town, and it so happened
that they were selling damaged sausages at thy
time. 'l'heie were some Bor 10 barrels of them,
end they were "just going at Oily cents a barrel,"
when the auctioneer, with all apparent seriousneae,
remarked that they were worth more than that to

farmer friend. "Silt y -two and a half," our
friend. '.Sixty-two and a half,—going at eaxty.
two and a hall—gone!" ,
Our friend got them—end how to get them to
his country seat as quickly as possible was lilt first
movement, for it was then planting time and the
sausages, to nee s cowman expression,. were "get.
tingna.better fast,' and it wait deSllllllll.l to have
them under ground as soon as possible.
