The brig Cybellt I pt. Merrill, arri
ved at Savannah on e 29th ult., bring
ing advices from Havana to the 20th,—
We are indebted to the Savannah Geor
gian for extras, containing the accounts
of the effects of the dreadful Gale of
the 10th ult. The recent gale experi
enced all along the Southern Coast, was
also felt with much violence at Havana,
and did considerable injury to the city,
and to the shipping in port. It was one
of the most severe gales that has been
experienced at that Island for many years
To Mr. Wells, the mate of the brig
Mohawk, wrecked at Havana in the gale,
who came passenger in the Cybclla, we
are indebted for the following particu
During the hurricane the city was very
dangerous from large sheets of lead and
tile pots blown down from the tops of the
houses ; these lay about in every direc
tion, and were in many instances carried
by the wind to a great distance. The
beautiful Palmetto end other trees which
adorned the Garernoro Square, were
broken and torn down, even the lamp
posts, &c. The wind was strongest
about nine,o'clock, at which time it shift
ed suddenly to the N. W. and blew with
terrific violence. The air was filled with
dense clouds of 'spoon drift' on salt spray,
which it was impossible to face. This
spray was carried for half a league into
the country, and deluged the houses, en
tering the crevice and flooding the streets
The surf and spray was seen to dash
high over the lanterns of the light house
on the Moro Castle.
Many houses were blown down or
unroofed, and among them the Tacon
Theatre, which was partially unroofed
and received other damage. The streets
were nearly deserted, except by occa
sional detachments of soldiers, ordered
to different posts, to give assistance
where it was needed.
The beautiful Passao, the fashionable
drive of the citizens, suffered in its
shrubs, trees, plants, and after the hur
ricane, many were forcibly detained to
assist in moving the rubbish and ruins
from the streets. An occasional pedes
trian might be seen flying faster than he
appeared willing to go, borne by the ir
resistible force of the wind, which
swept through the long, narrow streets
with incredible force.
But the wharves presented the most
disastrous spectacle—ships, barques,
brigs, and schooners, some crowded on
top of the others, three tier deep, sunk,
wrecked, dismasted, or totally crushed
to pieces, with the owners, captains and
sailors, gazing upon the scene of des
truction. Some vessels known to be in
the harbor previous to the hurricane,
have disappeared, and their fate left to
conjecture. A a nothing could be seen,
a furlong's length, owing to the shower
of spray and drift which filled the air,
and as the wind blew nearly into har
bor, they could not have gone out, but
the sad spectacle of masts, spars, yards,
and pieces of wrecks which strewed the
harbors, proved that they must have
drifted into each other and sunk or gone
to pieces. The numerous men of war
were driven ashore and dismasted.
It is not known bow many lives were
lost, but bodies were seen floating in the
) harbor in the different dresses of sea
men in the merchant and naval services.
The brig Mohawk, from New Found
land, went ashore at Punta Fort, and
was exposed to the heaviest part of the
hurricane. The crew escaped by the
lines being let down from the fort to the
wreck, by which they ascended to the
walls of the Fort.
News from the interior stated that
the sugar crops were very much injur
ed, and in many instances ruined. A
continuance of fine weather might re
.such as was not totally lost ; the
coffee plants were also seriously dam
aged. The gale towards Cardenas was
not quite so violent.
Fears were entertained regarding se-'
veral vessels which sailed the day pre
ceding the hurricane.
The Governor had issued permission
to such as had their houses damaged, to
rebuild with Wood—a privilege hitherto
denied them under such circumstances.
••His Excellency was seen riding with
his suite the day following the hurri
cane, to estimate the damage done. He
'was every where received with marks
.of respect by the citizens.
The captain of a brig, whose name we
did not learn, died on the 13th, from
wounds received during the gale.
The hurricane commenced about 12
o'clock on the 10th, and was at its
height at 9 o'clock on the 11th.
Capt. Merrill reports the following
vessels sunk, ashore, dismasted, &c., at
Havana, in the hurricane of the 10th ult.
The barque Rapid, of New York, sunk
at her anchors, has been got up, and
would load in a few days for N. York.
Barque lowa, of Baltimore, went
ashore—was got off after discharging,
with little injury.
Ship Madeline, of and from N. York,
arrived on the 9th, sunk next day, and
would be sold.
Ship Child Harold, of N. York, Cros-
by, from Guayaquil, badly damaged--
was taking in cargo of sugar for New
Ship Kludara of New York, will be a
total loss. S he was a new ship, about
16 months old. _ _
Ship Madeline, Shankland, of Phila
delphia, just arrived from New Orleans
Brig Echo, Smith, of Newport—sunk.
Brig Lisbon, of Newport, injured
Brig Mohawk, Crocker, sunk—cargo
and vessel total loss—was sold for $4OO.
Brig Oak had been ashore on the
rocks—lost her fore-mast and main-top-
Brig Willinoket, of Boston, badly da
maged, having had her stern knocked
off, probably would be condemned.
Brig Titi badly damaged,—had her
side stoved in and fore top-mast ; was
repaired, and would sail in a few days
for New Orleans.
Brig Cumberland, of New York, bad
ly injured, and was condemned.
Sehr. Planet, Jacobs, sunk, condemn
ed, and sold for 4310.
Seim Merchant, of Charleston, Rean,
Capt. Crosby, of the ship Childe Ha
rold, died at Havana, on the 13th ult. of
inflammation of the bowels.
The brig Maria L. Hill, of Dennis,
Capt. Chase, from Georgetown, D. C.,
bound to Kingston, Ja., went down in a
gale of wind on the 16th ult., in lat. 30,
lon. 72. Captain and crew were taken
off by Capt. Sprague, of the brig Smyr
na, and carried. into Havana.
STILL FURTHER PARTICULARS.
The editors of the Georgian have
been favored with the following letter,
which gives some additional particu
HAVANA, Oct. 17, 1846
We have to announce with deep re
gret, that we have again been visited
with a terrific hurricane, far more des
tructive in its effects upon the shipping
in the harbor, than that of 1844. It
commenced on the evening of the 10th,
and lasted until 11 o'clock the next day.
Out of 104 sailing vessels, steamers and
vessels of war in our port, all but 12
have been sunk, wrecked, dismasted, or
otherwise severely injured ; besides
which, 40 or 50 coasting vessels were
destroyed. In the city and environs,
the injury to the buildings, trees, &c.,
has been immense, and many lives have
been lost. The accounts from thecoun
try are as yet incomplete in the informa
tion, and vary a great deal. In some
districts the damage both to the sugar
cane and the buildings on the estates
has been immense; in others it has been
somewhat lighter. The total diminution
of the crop in consequence of this calam
ity, will no doubt be very considerable,
though we have not data enough as yet
to make an estimate. Much will also
depend on the weather we have for some
weeks to come.
The greater part of the Coffee crop
has perished, and almost all the planta
tion trees have been rooted up, and
fields of rice destroyed, whereby much
suffering will be occasioned, and imports
of provisions from abroad will be requi
red to a greater extent.
Our Government have published an
order permitting small foreign vessels
suited for the coasting trade, to be trans
ferred to the Spanish flag. Such vessels
should be of light draught, with a good
capacity for storage.
No announcement has yet been made
of any reductions of duties upon articles
of necessity. It is doubtful if any relief
will be afforded in that way.
Brig Venezuela, Fowler, lost both
masts close to the deck. _ _
A French frigate went ashore but
will probably be got off with consider
able damage. Also, a French sloop-of
war was driven ashore on the morning
of the 11th, and will be a total loss, and
a French man-of-war steamer much dam
aged, being dismasted,
A Spanish man-of-war brig, sunk at
her anchors, and will be a total loss,
one went ashore, and 3 were slightly in-
The steamers Montezuma and Guad
aloupe are ashore.
The Havana Prices Current, of the
18th ultimo, in summing up the list of
disasters to the shipping, gives the fol
lowing result :
Ships sunk, 11 ; dismasted, 4 ; much
damaged, 8 ; safe, 4 ; total, 27. Brigs
sunk, 19; dismasted, 12 ; much dam
aged, 14 ; safe, 4 ; total, 49. Schrs.
sunk, 7 ; dismasted, 3 ; much damaged,
2; safe, 1 ; total, 13.
Steamers lost, Natchez, Tacon, Vil- 1
lanueva. Coasters sunk, upwards of 45.
LATER FROM MATANZAS.—lntelligence
had been received at Havana, from Ma-'
tanzas, which represents the gale to'
have been very severe, but not so des
tructive to the shipping. Although
every vessel in port was driven ashore,
they were got off without much damage,
with the exception of the Nicholas
Brown, of Providence, and schr. Gen.
Warren, which are considered as totally
lost. The latter was to have been sold
on the 19th ult
The American barque Merlin, Good
hue, which cleared on the 9th, for
Cowes, was still in port, and was one of
those that drifted ashore.

Ashland and its Occupant.
The Philadelphia " North American"
contains several letters from its popular
correspondent, " INDEPENDENT," dated
at various points in the West. One
comes from Lexington, Ky., the home
of " HARRY OF THE WEST," and tells of
.dshland and its Occupant." Speaking
of the Tariff Mr. CLAY said :
" Let the question be between the
Whig Tariff of 1842 and the Democratic
Tariff of 1846. One is a positive good
which the people have felt—the other
will as surely prove a positive evil,
which they have yet to realize. Let
your cry be RESTORATION," and so,
remarks the correspondent, in God's
name say I, and so I hope will every
Whig from Maine to Texas, until our
standard is once more unfurled ilLvictory
from the east portico of the IVpitol.
IWe want no modifications—no compro
mise—no half-way schemes. The true
and fair policy of Protection is to assist
the infant manufactures that are now
struggling for existence as they were
when the first act of Congress was pas
sed. We know that old established in
stitutions with large capital, immense
resources and the ability to apply every
improvement in machinery, can, on a
particular class of articles, submit to a
slight reduction, which, if applied to
other branches of industry, would not
only overwhelm them in ruin, but tend
to fix a monopoly in the hands of wealth.
Let us have a fixed and tangible idea,
such as the comprehension of the work
ing man can grasp—such as he will un
derstand by the difference in the price
of his daily labor under the two systems.
That is to be found in our Whig Tariff,
which the Locofoco Administration that
Pennsylvania put in power has uprooted.
Let our cry then be—zzsrozAnoN—
Ren►ains of Commodore Decatur.
The remains of the late Commodore I
Stephen Decatur were removed from
Washington on Tuesday 27th ult., to
Philadelphia, where they were received
with appropriate ceremonies and re-in
terred with military and civil honors, in
the grave yard of St. Peter's Protestant
Episcopal Church. A monument is to
be erected over them. The re-interment
took place from the residence of Major
Twiggs, at the Navy Yard, on Thursday
29th ultimo. The funeral procession
consisted of the Volunteer companies of
I the city and county ; the Reverend Cler
gy, the Officers of the Army Navy, and
Marine Corps, and the Officers of the
Militia, not on duty, with their respec
tive corps, the Pensioners at the United
States. Naval Asylum, and seamen who
have served under the deceased Commo
dore ; the Judges of the United States
and State Courts, the Mayor, Recorder,
and civil authorities of the city and
adjoining districts, the Society of the

a member, the Ship Masters of the port,

Q IX YEARS' EXPERIENCE has prov
ed that, for the cure of coughs, colds,
consumptions asthma, spitting of hood,
pain and oppression of the breast, there
is nothing equal to Hance's Compound
Syrup of Horehound.
This medicine has now been in use
for six years, during which time there
hss been a constant demand for it, and
its popularity, instead of declining, has
beeen always on the increase,
During this time many new medicines
have sprung up for the cure of the above
complaints, some of which lasted only a
few months, and others not as long; but
Hance's Syrup has readily gone on gain
ing favor with all classes of society, un
til it has now become identified by many
families as a
REGULAR FAMILY MEDICINE.
To those who have never used the
Compound Syrup of Horehound, this no
tice is particularly directed to, as those
who have once experieficed its peculiar
ly happy effects, any praise of its merits
would be superfluous.

afflicted with the Dyspepsia for 12 years,
