Deaths In the City?Narrow Escape* from Death by Lightning in the CountryFloods in Massachusetts. The fearftil storms of thunder, light ning and rain of Tuesday night last, which no doubt had their terrors, are still rresh In the recollection of many, bat the storms of yesterday and the night previous were, to say tho least, extraordinary. During Thursday night tho rain kept pouring down ever and anon* while the thunder, lightning flashes and excessive heat were still unabated. The morning of yesterday was still and gloomy. There was little sunshine, yet the atmosphere was condensed with heat, which seemed to descend like steam from tho vapory sky. At about half-past ten o'clock the cirrus-cumulus and cirrus-stratus could be seen shifting up from the horizon to the zenith, until, at eleven o'clock, the heavy mass of atmospheric vapor burst upon the earth in torrents. Few there were who expected the sudden downfall to come so soon, and muny t here were, consequently, who felt the loss of umbrellas and waterproofs. The storm continued during the day with unabated fury, drenching street aud alley, cellar and sidewalk, to an extent which quickly cleaused them of ail traces of garbage and tilth 01 every kind. The heat still retained its oppressive power and destructive effect, as can bo clearly seen from the following DfcAXHS FROM SUNSTROKE REPORTED AT TUB CORONERS' OFFICE.

The Merrlmac River has risen about eighteen inches, and the water is now overflowing portions of the cofferdam partially constructed to enable the laying of the waterworks pipe under tne bed of the river at Hunt's Falls. Thousands of acres of meadow lands In Tewksbnry, known as the Shawsheen Trull and the KendaU Meadows, are overflowed, the water nearly reaching the top of the grass, none ctf which has been cut. The same state of affairs is reported from many places along the Concord River. marvellous Escape of a Fishing Party. A most miraculous escape occurred on Wednesday afternoon. A large rook at the foot of Storm King Mountain, on tlie bank of the river, was st nick by lightning, on which were seated a party fl9hing. The bolt, in appearance a ball of Are, stmck the centre of the rock with a terrible crash, throwing pieces of stone some distance in the air, one of which struck one of the ladles on the arm. Terrified almost to Insensibility, the party succeeded in reaching home, with terror stamped on every featnre, and, although nearly all experienced a cramping sensation, most providentially none were seriously Injured. _ Heavy Rain Storm In Washington.

Speeches by the Sturdy Farmer and the Gallant Old Mariner. Our Country's Greatness vs. a Love for Clams. Ryk Bracii, N. ii., August 10, 1872. Mr. Greeley left Portland at au early hour this morning, accompanied by a commit tee of citizens 'characd with the dutv of conducting him to Torts mouth, N. O. The committee consisted of Colonel Frank Jonca and Messrs. J. U. Upham, Thomas Ilolden and J. H. Sanborn. The departure from Portland was quiet, although It was an late in the morning as nine o'clock when the party reached the depot. A few Portlanders, who had not yet satisfied their patriotism or curiosity, loitered around the depot and took their last opportunity of gazing upon the great man. But otherwise there was no boisterous or enthusiastic demonstration. The Sago quietly took his scat In the regular car, and soon was bounding along the rails towards Portsmouth. At Saco and at Blddeford there were small crowds awaiting the arrival of the Philosopher. At Saco one man, a hardy, honest-looking individual, went to the window where the honest white head rcclined and said "Well, Uncle Horace, you're a devilish good-looking old fellow after all." "Ah," responded Uncle norace, "I do not think that I am so fiendishly homely as some of the caricaturists would make me." At Blddeford, Just across the river, one man cried, "I wager $100 he's your next President." Another, with one arm, came forward and said, "1 fought lor you and your teaching, and, by ginger ! I'm going to vote for you!" At Kennebunk, a very meagre station, there were a few persons anxious to shake hands with the Chief, and a blind man, peddling apples, was heard to say that he would like to see the old man, which was evidently a hearty wish. At Wells, Berwick, Conway Junction and Elliott there were similar demonstrations. TI1K Alt IlIV A I, AT rORTSMOUTU. At about twenty mlautca of twelve o'clock the train came Into tho depot at 1'ortsmouth. The mass of people awaiting him completely tilled die depot, and stood over flir Into the streets beyond, t the carriages, hair a block distant, the crowd became dense again, and at various prominent points along the route the crowds again Increased. The people nad evidently taken station early In the day to await the spectacle at the best coigns of vantage. A passageway was clcarcd through tho crowd at the depot with great difficulty, the people assailing the person of Mr. Greeley with most violent attempts to shake him by the hand and to get near his person. As he entered the carriage?an open barouche, drawn by two bay and two gray horsesthree times three cheers went up for the Farmor of Chappaqua. lie was accompanied by Daniel Marcy, J.?. 11. Frlnk and Francis Jones, the other carriages being occupied by Mr. G. II. Jcnncss and other members of the committee. A SPLKNIWI) FROCK3SION. The proccsslon, consisting of about twelve handsome carriages, took up its line of march preceded ! by the United States Marine Hand of the Portsmouth Navy Yard, led by llarlow, all In lull uniform, through Vaughan, Congress, Daniel, Middle and State streets, to the Rockingham Hotel, on the rock. The beauty and chivalry of the aristocracy of Portsmouth were at the windows or on the streets. At Congress nail, Just as Mr. Oreeley had arrived in front, a Greeley banner forty feet long was tlung to the breeze amid the Immense shouts of the concourse and the smites of the Sage. Another was unfurled a few moments afterward at Daniel street, amid similar demonstrations. Many of tjie houses on the route were decorated with handsome banners. At the Rockingham Hotel tho porches were decoratcd with American flags and crowded with mon and women, waving hats, hand kerchiefs and baunera. Mr. Greeley descended from the carriage and wa9 received at the steps by the proprietors, and, amid great cheers, passed through the multitudes to the reception parlor, TUB FUIL080PHBR'8 SPBBCH FROM TIIR PIAZZA. After a moment's rest he was escorted to the piazza, and, on being Introduced by Ur. J. S.

If such It can be | considered, of one who has never ceased to l?o proud of the state of his nativity, and.

At the conclusion of this speech the Philosopher retired to the reception parlor again, whore he was warmly greeted by a number of distinguished gentlemen. ON TO nVR IJEACn. He took dinner at the Rockingham, and at about half-past one o'clock the party took open carriages and drove to Wye Bench, a delightful r?de of about eight miles, over a pleasant road ap.d amid handsome Bcencry. The procession comprised tea carriages, filled with a distinguished company, and was preceded by the rnlt^d States Kami In a huge stage. All along the route there were saall ova , tlona from the smaller fttrmors living on the 1 road. At the entrance to Rje Bcacb tTGTTST 17, Ig72.-WlTff B some of the prlrate cottages were handsomely decorated, while the larger hotels, like the Sea View, the Ocean, the Surf and the Farragut, were gorgeously arrayed in bright aud breezy buutIng.

It had been arranged soiuc days ago that a CLAMBAKE SHOULD DR TENDERED tho famous Philosopher Dear the Karragut House. Accordingly, at about four o'clock, the liberal leader and his company drove down again, accompanied by music, to this line hotel. The whole piazza was crowded with nags, and its whole population was assembled about the grounds. The Philosopher was received by the Hon. A. B. Stoughton, of Washington, D.

At the conclusion loud cheers from the men and hearty applause from tho ladies, among whom arc a number of New York belles, greeted the hardy farmer, And he departed a', onco for the clam bake, which was set In a pleasant grove a few hundred yards from the hotel. meeting and k ati no with robrflon. Here a surprise awaited the hero of the white bat, for who should he see coming to greet him but tho Secretary of the Navy, Georgo M. Robeson, in propria persona. The two smiled immensely as they recognized cach other, and then they shook hands together, and then they sat down to the clam-bake together. Mr. Frank Thompson presided. Mr Greeley occupied a seat near the middle, Secretary Robeson sat near him, Mr. Charles Levi Woodbury on the other hand and the rest of the company where they could. The menu comprised a surprising variety of clams? clams baked, clams fried, clam fritters, clam chowder and clams everywhere. An Interested group stood about the significant clam caters, watching the way in which a probable President and an actual Secretary of the Navy masticated the dainty bivalves. They seemed to do it In perfect accord. They had ovldently shaken hands across the bloody chasm so far as eating clams could enable them to do so. The weather was threatening and a slight shower came up while tho clam eaters were at work; but, as the lusty Woodchopper and tho bold mariner both knew they were not sugar and salt and would not melt, they stuck courageously to the clams despite the rain. The shower soon ceased; then the flow of reason commenced. Mr. Charles Levi Woodbury proposed the health of Mrs. Philbrlck, the hostess, who had gotten up the entertainment for them, and, after paying her a neat compliment, called upon Mr. Robeson for an expression of his sentiments. The Secretary was not so thoroughly prepared as he might have been, and was somewhat unduly Impressed wltn tho Importance of the occasion and the significance of the situation, and he made a speech perhaps rather solemn for the occasion, but such as It is you have it.

The sons of New Kngland illustrate to the conntry and to the world the fact that the sccret of American success is to be found in the spirit of American government. That is the lesson which New England gives to tho country, and her sons Illustrate that their spirit is the spirit of progross, their success the fruits of their Industry; out., frionds, of course I cannot make a long speech nor a particular one, for it is nccessary, under tho circurastanccs under which we etiintl, that I should deal only with broad principles. During this speech Mr. Qreeloy sat leaning back in his chair, wltb his white hat in his lap, Industriously studying the maker's label Inside, but he did not close his eyes or nod once during the period of its delivery. A round of cheers greeted the bold mariner when he concluded, and the cry rose for "Greeley.'' The people on the distant piazzas of the hotels hoard the cry, and, having just drank In the music of his golden words, hastened from all sides to the dinner table In the hope of another draught. MR ORKEI.BY'S REPLY. Mr. flreeley rose slowly, and, with a quizzical look, said:?

Mr. Greeley returned to the cottage of Mr. Jenness, where to-night he held a very brilliant reception.

Tlie wind was light from the south-southwest and the tide about the last of tho ebb. The Viking was the flrst boat to come up to the line, and she attracted considerable attention, as this was her maiden raco and there was diversity* of opinion ' as to bow she would go. She crossed the line on ; the port tack with mainsail, foresail, jib, flying Jlh, ; main club topsail and small working foretopsail. j The Tidal Wave crossed a few seconds betore, on her weather quarter under the same canvas, substituting small main gaff topsail for the club topsail. Following came the Columbia with big club topsail and Jib topsail set, about fifty yards to windward of the Magic, which also had a club topsail up. The Resolute enrae np on the standard tack, and, by bad management, went in stays while crossing the line. The Foam came next, a little to leeward of the Eva. The Foam, wanting to got clear of the Resolute, gave a good full and passed her to leeward. The Madgle crossed In the Eva's water, followed by the Allco and the Madeleine. The funthe came next, but, ae she did not cross within the required fifteen minutes, her time was not taken. THE FIRST RKACn. The Viking reached to the Dumplings, tacked on the lee quarter of the Tidal Wave, which was also In Htays; the Colombia tacked under the lee bow of the Tidal Wave and crossed the liow of Uio viking, which was on the port tack. The Kva gnawed up to windward of the Resolute, slipping, along very cleverly, and crossed the Magic's stern, which had tier starboard tacks aboard, and made a good reach for the westward. The Colombia waa doing well, j and when she w< nt on the port rack had the Tidal : Wave fifty yards to leewurd on the same reach, and , the Viking off the lue quarter of the Tidal Wave. 1 The Kva went in stays about the same lime and stood to the eastward, crossing the Resolute'* bow. The Viking set her Jib topsail and the Mi>gU: followed suit The Columbia was doing guud work nmt gradually getting up to windward of the fleet. The | Viking stayed, ami reachiug to the eastward forced the Kva, on the port tack. To give way ?rul pass to 1 leeward. The Kva was then leading.Uie Magic, and. i the Viking tacked to the westward. A few minutes 1 later the Kesoluto was away to leeward of the Tidal Wave, followed by the Madgle, who appeared; to be In pretty good form. The jib topsail on the Magic did not appear to be dolug tier much good ion the wind. The Madgle finally weatlu&red the Resolute nnd then went for the Tidal Wave. In the meanwhile the Madeleine was doing some pretty ' Sood sailing, having disposed of the Ance, and looked ke overhauling the Foam. The Kva was now in Columbia's water, leading the Magic.

The Madeleine was following alter ! the Foam, and the CoiumHa waa about i hree-quar- j I tern of a mile to windward of Um> Tidal W?w. The Magic tacked to the eastward* following rue course I of the Eva, who was standing well oir lr chat dlreeI tlon, In the hopes of a ?blrt of wt;id an.l In order to get tl>e benefit of tho drat flood tide, which would lia oo her let b?w; the Columbia on the starboard lack cro?:s?Ml the bow* of the Tidal Wave, wfclch waa standing to the westward.

The Tidal VVav*?, finding the Columbia Waving her, set, a jib topsail, but had to take It tu as ,tdld her more barm than good on the wind. The VIMug tacked at la-44 oil Narraganaett pier to the eastward, and theTMal Wave stayed on her Ice bow and stood in cfw> *apje direction. Tho Columbia tacked at UAt on the weather bow of fho Viking. Tho Bva and Magic were still standing away to the eastward. The Madgle walked along la the tuka of the Viking, and appeared to ^closing the gap. Tie Magic ami Rva stayed at l:U and stood for W>lnt Judith. The breeze had BWimtD MORB TO T1HS WESTWARD, and they were, consequently, ttyrown a little tmok. The Viking tacked at i:ij rq ho westward, fol, lowed by the Tidal Wave and Columbia, tlio latter a mile to windward. The breeze was dying away, and It looked like a calm, but presently a little breeze came up and the Columbia stayed. The Madgle had her Jib topsail set and was doing trill with trie Tidal Wave and VlfciOg. The Columbia tacked at l : ? to the westward, followed two minutes later by the Viking. Tbe Madgie tacked under tho lc?s bow of tbe Tl tat Wave, and th* Viking bore away and passed the stern of both. The Tidal Wave covcred Uic Madgtc, and, shooting altoatl ftii'Viwl aft (hA Vilrlnrr'a vnothor nil:il l.iT. The Mangle stayed tn the wake of the Tidal Wave.
