--During the thunder shower of Wednesday, the 16th, the lightning struck the house of ]Mrs. Jacob Loomis
, in Bloomfield
.--Over seventy panes of glass were shattered by it, clapboards were thrown off, the plastering was torn from the wall and a picket fence in front of the house was splintered.
Two ladies sitting in one of the rooms, upon finding the lively visitor had passed within ten feet of them, fainted, but were not injured.
In addition to this, the fluid went into the well, which has since refused to yield any of the aqueous convenience for which it was specially designed.--Hartford Courant:
