Yesterday atternoon a thun
der shower commenced about
noon. The rain fell lightly and
slowly at first, but gradually
increased in volume until the
water fell in torrents, being all
the time interspersed with
flashes of lightning. The rain
bad continued about half an
hour, when a vivid flash of
ligthtning appeared, which
was followed by a sharp report,
striking the house of Thomas
Lavelle, in the northwest end
of town, killing Mrs. Lavelle,
who was sitting in the kitchen,
in lront of the cooking stove.
Mr. Lavelle and his neph
ew, a young man, were seated
in the sitting room emokinsr
before the grate; Mr. Lavelle
was knocked insensible on the
floor, and a deep gash and oth
er bruises were on his head; his
nephew received a shock run
ning down the right leg run
ning down to the foot, where a
email wound was perceptible,
tearing open the Beam of his
boot and tearing off the heel.
As soon as Mr. Lavelle return
ed to his sensps, he found the
clock that stood on the mantle-
piece phatferel to fragments
that were scattered over the
room, and a pipce of tbe mn
tlepiece torn off. He went in
to the kitchen and there found
Mrs. Lsvplle in a silting pis
hire and evidently dead, he now
saw that the house wis on fire;
he removed the tody lo the
summer kitchen, sent for med
ical assistanop.in the meantime

other restoratives, to no effect,
medical assistance came hnt

prevented the house Irom bp-
It is supposed that a weight
or some of the fragments of
the clock struck Mr. Lavelle
and nmde his wounds. The
ensr end ol the houie was shat
tered, the current passing
through to the inside tearing
the plastering in the setting
room and weather-boarding in
the kitchen, near where Mrs.
Lavelle was sitting, and also
making a rent in the roof.
