   On Saturday last, about the hour of eleven o'clock, the house of Mr. James Service of Dunomoy near Ballyleaston, was visited with one of those phenomena of nature--a thunder storm. It appears that the lightning at first took the western chimney of the house, which it demolished, -asting some of the stones to a great distance. It had descended down the funnel, until it -ame in contact with the crane, or horizontal iron bar, which pot, &c. are descended from, the point of which bar had directed it into the jamb of the chimney piece where it entered and forced heavy stones to a great distance, went through one of which store went through a door at six yards distance, and the glass of a window in the kitchen was shivered into atoms ; and barrels, tubs, and many other articles were scattered upon the floor. Fortunately no person was in the kitchen at the time.

   In another apartment of the house, a woman and child were knocked senseless on the floor ;-- the woman says she felt something like a heavy pressure on her head, which brought her to the ground, and when she recovered her child which was standing beside her, was lying prostrate at some distance, and a considerable hole made in the floor near her. There is marshy soft ground to the eastward of the house, and a pool of standing water, nearly touching the house in the S. E. direction. The thunder did not continue for a long time.
