Thcndkr Storm Vkstkkday Another Tain storm, accompanied by thnnderand light ning, visited this city yesterday afternoon about two o'clock, and the air was purified and cooled The storm was not of long continu ance, but wbile it did last a good deal of water fell. The lightning played havoc with the south chimney attached to tiie tall brick resi dence of C.apt. John II. (loddard, on I street, between Gth and 7th streets. The fluid passed down the chimney as far as the third story chamber, splitting the flue in two parts, one side tailing to the ground. A small hole was ! also made through the roof and ceiling. the ! latter of which is somewhat injured. Then Hying round the room, several picture frames were torn off, and one of gilt quite blackened. The frame of an cld-fashionerf looking-glass was forced open, and a fancvshow-bill therein j was torn to pieces and rolled tip in small par- ' ce!s.

Van thought this rather hard treatment, and as he was powerless to accom plish ar y thing of himself, he determined to appeal to the strong arm of the law, and ac cordingly proceeded in search of a policeman, inquiring at every comer where one might be found, and following the inquiry with nume rous assertions of his having been a goed hu3 band ?all his life," giving his wife all his hard earnings, which sometimes ^mounted to as much as five or six dollars a month.
