For some days past, says the Pitts
burg Journal, the rain has been constant
in this section of the country, and our
rivers have been swollen to an unusual
height, higher we believe than at any
period since . 1832, and one foot higher
than on the 25th November.
We can scarcely doubt that much sal
vable property has been destroyed on
the Allegheny and Monongahela. There
Was yesterday 23 feet of water in the
channel of the Monongahela.
The Allegheny rose rapidly, and yes
terday afternoon, the " Island," and all
the adjacent portion of the city was on
der water. The river backed water over
the second lock of the canal, and the
cellars of Ann street and Robinson
street below Craig, were inundated.

CINCINNATI, Dec. 15.
The waters of the Ohio have now
swelled to the highest point attained
during the great flood of 1832, and the
lower part of the city is entirely inun
dated. At least five thousand families
have been rendered houseless by this
disastrous flood, and great distress must
ensue in consequence.
A public meeting of the citizens has
been called to proVide the means for
alleviating their destitute condition.—
The stores south of Pearl street are
flooded, and Broadway is overfloWed.—
It is useless to calculate the damage, or
to endeavor to give an idea of the dis
tress among us.
Business has been almost entirely sus
pended. Half the lumber in the city is
afloat, and boats have even been carried
'off the stocks in the ship yards.
The snow is eighteen inches deep, and
more is now falling.—Phila.
CINCINNATI, Dec. 16, 1847.
The river is still rising at the rate of
half an inch an hour. The steamboat
Hibernia, from Pittsburg, which arrived
this afternoon, reports, thnt the Ohio is
rising rapidly from Wheeling down to
this point. The towns of Marietta and
Parkersburg are both literally inunda
ted, and reports froth Louisville,repre
sent the scene along the river to n dis

surrounded by water.
The city of Cincinnati presents a sad
spectacle also. The water and gas works
have both suspended operations, the wa
