EFFECTS OF THE STORM AT BARRY. The great storm renewed itself with equally terrible severity on Saturday and Sunday last. In the Barry roadstead many vessels narrowly es- caped dragging their anchors, and the greatest anxiety was felt on shore for their safety. To- wards 'afternoon, however, the wind veered con- siderably to the north, the sea soon becoming comparatively calm and with a modified gale from the land there was littlo cause for further anxiety. A strict look-out was kept at the Cold- knap Coastguard Station during Saturday -night and Sunday, but nothing was observed in the shape of a ship in distress. The heavy rains over- night have floodeed hundreds of acres of the low lying hinds between Penarth Dock and Barry. For fully a quarter of a mile the road between the village of Eastbrook and Dinas Powis, on Sunday afternoon, was submerged to the extent of six or seven inches. The overflowing of the stream run- ning in front of the village had blocked up the drains, and the water rushed tempestuously down the road. Towards evening, however, the road had become almost clear of the inundation. The Drumblair hae now a decided list to port, and little hope is entertained of the stranded vessel being got off the rocks. Three steamers got into Barry Dock on the morning tide. They report having experienced terrific weather.
