Storm Blows Down Westport Engine House
Westport Saturday Jan 19.  The wind storm on the evening of the 9th instant blew down the engine house here and caused a little trouble in getting the old R.G. Hervey to emerge from under the debris.  Fortunately, no one was hurt, as the night-watch had just time to make good his escape.
