Blown Down. - A frame structure in process of erection at Camp Winder, forty feet by one hundred sixty in size, was blown down a day or two since, and William Yeatman, foreman of the building; Matthew, a slave of Dr. Rains, and three slaves owned by Messrs. Jas. Epps and Dr. Lagre, severely injured about the head, face and limbs.

Messrs. Green & Allen, the contractors, suffer a loss of some thousand of dollars, by the breaking of timber and from the delay occasioned to their operation.
