Last fall we built a grapery for John Cheney, Esq., of South Manchester, Conn. It is situated in a valley, exposed to all the winds sweeping down it The house is 20 by 70, with a continuous roof; and there is little timber in it, and that very light, the heaviest piece above the foundation being 2 by 6; but it is put together in a peculiar manner. This spring a fierce tornado came roaring down the valley, uprooting trees, prostrating dwellings and performing other unseemly and fantastic feats; having no respect for graperies, it swept down upon this one in full force, moving it bodily one foot from its foundation; in the words of Mr. Cheney, " it all went together, without breaking a pane of glass! "It has since, with the aid of powerful jack screws, been moved back to its place without breaking a glass. Thus this large glass structure has been moved two feet without a breakage. A close examination has not revealed to us the least damage to or weakening of the timbers. Can a parallel case be found?
