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. There ?-ere a number of persons in the j
hous? at the tin;e, but none of them were in- i
jured.
Srsiiciors CmcrnPTANt ks.?Saturday
liignt. ollicer Simouds arrested a newsboy,
named John King, for walking familiarly be

was called the witness did not appear, and the
case was dismissed by JusticeClayton. After
ward a man was picked up "drunk in the
Btreot, and his friends laid him in the doorway
of MiU hell's Park House, E, between 13th and
34th, to sleep. A newsboy named Michael
fimith, went in and laid down be~ide him.
Officer Sullivan finding him there roused him
out ot his apparent slumber, and examining
the sleepingman, found his pockets turned In
Side out. Smith was taken to the Second Ward
sta'ion, but no witnesses appearing, he also
was dismissed.
CoM?ri:iAL Infelicity.?Isaac Van Banm,
a disc> arged soldier, living on 4th street, be
tween M Uud N, had a disagreement on Satur
day with hisM'vrow" and his "vrow's" mother,
which resulted in his being put eut ot the
house, with emphatic injunctions never to
enter it again. 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.
