A FLOOD'S VICTIMS.
MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 25.--- Pemiscott county has been almost, depopulated.
Three-fourths of the county is now under water and assitance is urgently
needed at several points in the county between Reelfoot Lake and
Paragould on the: Arkansas side.
There were three; families drowned there last Friday. : Their names are:
Wash. Hall, wife ;, and three children; Joseph Mallory,wife and two
children; Samuel Moore (colored), wife and daughter. Hall's wife was caught
on a tree and was rescued by a hunter. She lived only an hour.
The Arkansas bottoms are all under water and the number of lives lost and
property destroyed cannot be estimated, because no boats have gone into the
flooded districts and nothing definite has been learned from there.
