Marquette, Mich., June 11.- Reports from tbirteen places show that the storm of Saturday night was general in scope and unprecedented in amount of rain fall. The storm broke like the bursting of a waterspout and continned for two hours in torrente, accompanied by heavy lightning. All the country trom the Wisconsin line to the upper range and the whole north of the penĂ­nsula sutfered. At, and for tifty miles from Houghton, the work of the deluge was most daniaging. Barga, Houghout, Calumet, Lake Linden, Escanaba, Lake Anse, Iron Mountain, Noiway, Ishpeming, Marquette, and as far east as Seney, the storm was terrible. No approximation of damage is possible. Houses were undermined, and in some cases swept away; culverts and bridges were destroyed and miles of fences and sidewalks swept away. Although several railroad culverts were destroyed no accidents occurred, but travel i generally delayed on all peninsular roads.
