66We receive from all parts the most distressing ac.
counts of the effects of the late inundations in JLungary,
Austria. Sifesia,and Poland. None of these recitals how.
ever excite more paintul feelings than an account trans.
mitted from Trentschiu. ‘The river Waag, which runs
hrongh this country, was, in the beginuing of Sept. rais-
ed six fect aboveits usual height by the great rains which
had fallen some days preceding. ‘Lhe banks immediately
gaye vay, and the lands were inundated. A high moun.
tain, which was undermiscd by (he food, suddenly fell in-
to channel of the river, and gave it au impetus which no.
thing could resist. From Zsilina to Szered, upwards of
GO villages, with all their houses, tlocks, aud standing
crops, were washed away. The calamity haying occurred
during the day, many of the inhabitants had time to save
themselves; but, nevertheless, more than twelve hundred
persons perished, besides many thousand cattle, sheep,
and horses. All the bridges upon the Waag were destroy-
ed; so that in particular situations, five days clapsed be.
fore assistancecould be given tothe survivors of this dread.
fulcalamity. 11 thetowns in theneighbourhood of Waag
have been damaged. At Neustadt, about SO houses were
overturned. At this time one half of the extensive district
of T'rentschin is in ruins.
‘Letters from Belgrade mention that there hed been an
View original inundation of the Danube ia ie ncighbourhood of Widdia
during the night of the Lith September. A small Purkish
corps of 2000 men, had océupicd one of the islands, and
thrown up fortilications thereon, They formed part of
the force which was blockading the Servian furtress. In
the middle of the night, while buried ia a profound sleep,
they were surpriscd by the waters, and met with wistant
death. Not one person escaped. Even the island itself
suuk, and disappeared,
‘*fn the middle of August, the Drave fiooded the coun.
(ry in the neighbourhood of Orsatch. By (he conjoiatin-.
fluence of the rains and a high wind, the waters of the ri-
ver were raised to a tremendous height. They sweptaway
six villages, and the suburbs of atuwn. In the latter is
included a minister of the church, who, while intent upon
celebrating divine service, was, with his congregation of
about 2 {tO persons, buried. beneath the ruins of the build.
‘* From Silesla we have accounts equally distressing as
the above. The rivers in that country, swelled by the
heavy rats during three days and nights, became torrents.
They swept away houses, cattle, and the standing crops.
Nothing escaped. Of the inhabitants, above GOOU have
perished, Even the operations of the contending armies
were iinpeded ; bitiat will be some consolation to every
patiiotic German to learn that the rveinof the French une
der Macdonaid was accelerated by these floods. That

© Puerto-Cavello, Scpt. 9.—The execrabte Yuazola,
Whose atrocities all Venezucla has experienced, aud who
in the night of Che Sist of Aug. ran away froin the Vivzie
of Sclano, was mide prisoncr on the night of the 24 inst.
with his other companions.—This monster, brought in pre-
sence of the General in Chiefs, dreading the well-merited
punishment that awaited him, proposed an exchange for
Co!. Diago Jalon. The Gen. well knew the gnormons
difference there existed between an atrocious niuflerer anal
a champion of liberty ; but, with his accustomed humani-
ty, he proposed the exchange of Zuazola and the other
prisoners. Who could have thought that Monteverde,
notwithstanding his stupidity, would have been so barba-
rous, and so in different to the fate of his accomplices, as
not to accede to the proposal? But soit has turned out.
as will be seen by the following documents, which are
published to the world, that it may be known what Spe.
cics of man he is who governed Venezuela, and the man-
ner in which this despicable, cunning bird, wants to hide
his cowardice, showing, now surrounded by the walls of
a fortress, that firmness which he never had to present him-
self befure Bolivar in the field; and seeing, with th
greatest contempt, the fate of so many men sacrificed to
his ainbition, not to lose the imaginary honour of a con-
queror, which nothing but (he dreadful effects of the carth.
View original quake could liave procuted him.—Zuazola, im consequence
of this determination, received on ageilows the punishment
of his atrocitics.—A bominable monster !--fhiy pame will
be for ever remembered in the annals of Venezucla with
horror; and acry of joy will be echoed from the desolat-
ed Aragua to the remotest parts of America, at hearing
the end of your odious existence—wlose vame cannut be
pronounced without horror.

Atfeoier o'clock yesterday evening, the atrocious Zua-

‘ This man, or monster, beheaded innumerable persons

to the proposition which Zoazoia has tuade hin, whichis,
to be exchanged for Col. Dego Jalon, notwithstandéng thes
