Tremmdoiu Qtle.TrtM, Awnings, Chim neys, the Beet of Barton's Theatre Ir*jur eA?The Stem BUewhere. It stormed furiously all day jrenterday. One might ex e'aim that? Dashing ia big trope on the narrow pane. And making irournml mnalo tor the mind. While pIato hie Interlude the wixzard wind, I bear the ringing of the frequent rain. The city looked dismal enough, and no little damage was done to awniage, signs, blind* and other loose gee r that was expired to the aetion of the fieroe wind, which blew until a late hoar at night. This storm, nnpleasau a* It Is, will not be without its good effects, .it will d > something towards eleaniag our foul streets?dbet want it badly, by the way?and will also have en'excellent effect upon vegetation. Indeed, the trees In'ihe Park already have an extra dash of green upon them, and want but one hot day's sue to become gemmed with leafy blossoms. Scarcely a woman has been seen In the streets tor the last two davs, a circumstance their bus bands may eongratnlate themselves upon, as no doubt many a stocking has been overhauled,- and shirt bosom rendered presentable, that in fine weather would have remained unrepaired. By our telegraphic despatches it will be seen that this storm extends over a Urge snr'ace of oountry; indeed, there is reason to suppose that had it occurred during the winter It would have proved to be a dreadful snow storm, similar t> those we were favored with during the month of January. The rain, accompanied by heavy agnails from the northeast, continued during the entire day nntff night fall. A number of accidents happened daring the day The roof of Barton's theatre was carried completely away, and lands 1 in the Park. A beautiful willow tree, wfcieh stood betwtea the Hall of Retards and the City Hall, was proetratsd to the earth, while a large elm. which adorned the Hospital grounds for many years, was shivered to splinters, and landed on the roof of the eclored department. In Washington, Tompkins and Hadison squires the trees suffered more or less from the effects of the storm. Many hairbreadth escapes occurred in consequence of the falling signboards; but no limbs were broken, at |*ast to far as wa could ascertain. Towards midnight the storm abated, and the sky ap peared somewhat clear. The damage to the shipping, particularly along the coast, must be considerable. Freshets in the interior may be expeeted, as the storm seems to have perraded a very extensive tract of oountry. About four o'elock in theater noon, the chimney of the braes ehop, at llr. Delamater'a foundry, fiot of West Thirteenth stneet, was blovn down by .a gust of wind. It fell on the roof of the brass ehop and crashed it in. Fortunately, Mr. Robert Yates, the brass founder, had just gone out, or hewould undoubtedly have met with a severe aecldent. The well known rendezvous of the Baltic Baae Ball Club, asd where other congenial epirits meet, how lays a ruin in bricks and morter on the sidewalk, the effects of the storm. The Pacific mall steamship George Law, which was to have called yesterday, at 2 P. M,, for As pin wall, did not go outside, on aceonnt of the inclemency of the wea'her; and, accordingly, came to anchor jia the North river. . A violent e'.orm of wind end rain, from the northeast, prevailed at the time, and unless it should abate the G. L. would undoubtedly remain at her anchorage till dajlight this morning.) The steamers for Norwich, Stonington and Fall River were also compelled, by the eame circumstance, to wait beyond their time, 6 P. M. They would leeve, however, et any hour of the night on which the weather might prove more iavorable. The North river steamers for Albany were expected to go ont, as usual. THK BTOBM IN BROOKLYN. The severe storm yesterday did considerable damage. Borne houses were unroofed, church spires were blown down end signs end ewninge were scattered about the streets, making it hazardous to walk along the sidewalks. 1Te drivers of the city cars state that it Mew so hard at r.mes as to make it diffieutt for the homes to face It. There were some narrow escapes, but as far as heard from no personal injury ensued. The following are as miny of the parti enters of the damage as eonld be obtained:? The top of one of the spires on the Clinton avenue Con gressional church, on the eeraer of Lafayette ate?Q, | which has recently been built and is the finest structure of the kind in the city, was blown off, and falling upon the roof, store it in, causing damage to the amount of probably >1,000 or more. v4 A large shed for sheltering the care of the City Reload Company, on the corner of Myrtle and Marcy avenues, was prostrated. Borne six or seven pairs of hord were In at the time; but, fortunately, they sustained no injury. The cross and ball on the spire of St. James church in Jay street, came down upon the pavement, and strnek in frcnt of a woman, who narrowly escaped with her life. A painter's sign, six by twenty-firs feet, was blown fiom the top of a building in Fulton avenue, and landed in front of a car, nearly falling npon the horses. The bulk window of a porterhouse in Fulton avenue was blown oat into the street. A dwelling la Bridgs street was unroofed, one part falling in the street, and the other in a neighboring yard.

The appointment of Mr. Irving, as made by Mr. Selah, Commissioner of Re pairs and Hupplies, was then read. Aiderman Cijutcv moved the confirmation. Alderman Voorius moved that it be reierrod to the Committee cn Offices and {Salaries. Alderman Tuckkx opposed the nomination, and thought it ar insult to this Board that the Commissioner should send the nrmination bsck for the third time. He hid had a conversation with the Commissioner of Repairs and Supplies, aid had told bim that he believed Mr. Ir virg was a very good butcher?tbat he could kill and slay as well as any man (laughter,) but that he would not bo fit for tois office. Be (Aid. T.) opposed tbe nomination, be cause he Knew the public interest would suffer, eot lrora dishonesty, but front ignorance. Alderman Voorhls' motion to refer, was lost by a vote of 11 to 11.

Aiderman Fuurb wished it ti bo understood, and he hoped tbe reporters would notice it, that the whig party hid been sold. He considered that the man who voted for the present nominee was highly culpable, and that Mr. Selah insulted the Board in making toe nomination. He hoped tbe responsibility would fall where It ought; and though be knew they were sold out, and tbat the appointment would be confirmed, uo matter what he should say, still be would vote against it. Aiderman Cla.nct defended the caaiaoterof Mr. Irving, and considered him in every way qualified for toe posi tion to whleb he bad been nominated. Alderman Voowns opposed the nomination, and de clared that Aldermen Griffith and Jackson had voted twice against tbe confirmation, and had both given him (Alderman V.) their word that tbey never would vote tor Mr. Irving. He was sure that toose gentlemen would not employ Irving to build a hoilse for themselves, and from their former opinions he aid no think they would vote for bis confirmation. Alderman Jacksok, for about the first time in his life, was about to change his vote. It appears tbat the Al oerrren in majority voted against Mr. Irving merely be came he was ? batcher, and not a practical builder and he (Alderman J.) voted with them; but in * few nights after (hat they turned round and voted for an incompe tent man as Hnperlntendentof Roads. He (Alderman J.) would vote for the confirmation of Mr. Irving. After some remarks from Alderman Voorhis, Alderman Fox movad that the Board kdjonrn, which waB lost by a rote of 8 to 12. Alderman Unities was sorry to hear his democratic friend, Alderman Jackson, say that he wss ready to do wrong because others, and whig members, had done wrong. Alderman G aurora said he wanted to explain his vote; be was sent here by the American party, and when the nomination of Mr. Irving was last up before the Biard, he voted against him because tie was told that he was an Englishman. Now he (Alderman Griffith) never would vote for an Englishmen, (laughter and applause in the lobby,) but he had since learned that Mr. Irving was an American born, and as snch ho would vote tor the confirmation of his appointment. The confirmation was then put and carried by a vote of 11 to 9. Ayes?Aldermen Brown, Healey, Hoffmire, Clanov, Grif fiths, Steers, Jackson, Monaghan, Herrick, MsConkey, Vaiian.
