A dispatch from Parkton, Baltimore county, 30 miles north of Baltimore, says: - "The storm here and over the adjoining section of Pennsylvania was unprecedented. It did much damage to railroad and other property, washing the county roads and damaging the county bridges. The streams rose rapidly and grew turbulent. The Gunpowder river, along the line of the Northern Central railway, from Glen Rock, Pa., rose to a height surpassing any previous rise except perhaps that of 1871. At 8.15 P. M. no trains had gone either way from Parkton or north of Parkton since 11 o'clock this morning, and the information is that no trains will pass from Glen Rock tonight. The afternoon mail train, leaving Baltimore at 3.30 o'clock, remains at White Hall, and train No. 30, due at Baltimore at 3.15 o'clock, rests at Glen Rock. The railroad bridges between Parkton and Glen Rock are damaged. A very large force of workmen has been engaged filling In a washout at Bridge 41, south of Parkton, and repairing the bridge at Parkton, which was moved out of place, owing to a wheelwright shop belonging to Charles Rutledge, of Parkton, being washed against it. Mr. Donnelly, superintendent of telegraph operators, is at Parkton, and the division supervisors, with their working forces from Baltimore and other places, are hard at work. Parkton from north and south along the railroad and east and west along the York turnpike was submerged to the depth of from two to four feet, the water rising in several dwellings and filling cellars. The basement of Mr. James W. Ayers' building, used for entertainments, was flooded, as was the lower storeroom of Charles E. Plowman's property. The gatehouse of the Yorktown and Baltimore turnpike, occupied by Mr. James Beeker, was surrounded by water and friends went to the family's relief.
