The tremendous, ftorm of thunder and light-, ning, accompanied with a very high wind and rain, mentioned in our laft, has done very con-fiderable mifchief. The following particulars are already come to our knowledge. The copper roof of the new buildings in Lincoln's Inn, ner.t the gatdens, after being rolled up like a fheet of paper, was carried over the Six Clerks Office into Chancery-lane ; feveral windows and their frames were entirely deilroyed ; 13 trees in the gardens were torn up by the roots; ard the maid-fervant of Mr. Graham, the Counfel, loft her life by the fall of a flack of chimneys. In Long-Alley, Moorhelds, two houfes were blown down y feven trees in the quarters were torn up by the roots; and the letter-foundry of Meff.

In King's Bench Walks, in the Temple, a tree was fplit, and part of it driven with fuch violence againft the windows of the oppofite chambers as to break them to pieces; and in the fame place a great number of fparrows were picked up that had been kilted by the lightning. The workfhops of Mr. Chapman, chair-maker, in Peter-ltreet, Saftron-hi'U, were blown down. Oae of the long ltages having flopped at the George and Blue Boar, High-Holborn, to take in parcels, and the coachman having gong into the houfe for the purpofe of fetching them, the horfes took fright at a clap of thunder, and fet off with great fpe'ed through St. Giles's, Oxford-ftreet, Tyburn - turnpike (which was open), and on to that at Kilburn, where they were flopped by the keeper thereof, the paflengers (who had received no hurt) being ignorant they were without a driver. The damage upon the River, amongft the fmall craft, mull have been very confiderable, no lefs than ten coal-laden lighters naving been funk at Windle's wharf, the bottom of Milford-lane, and feveral driven on fhore at Scotland-yard. -Several trees in St. James's Park were blown down, the ropfs of Lord Porchefter's and Lord Sefton's houfes were ftripped of theirleai.

Yefterday morning, during the tremendous ftorm of thunder and lightning, a ftack of chim-nies fell through the roof of a fett of chambers in Furnival's Inn, Holborn, upon the bed where two fervants flept; the gentleman being much alarmed, went into the fervants room, and found them both severed with bricks and ruUbifh, but they were foen releafed from their difagreeabie fjtuatlon, and happily received no hurt.
