Description
Full Text

During the thunder storm this morning, the lightning struck the fore-top yard of the Brig WINSLOW, lying near the dry-dock, and shattered it to pieces. Splinters were carried across the Creek. The fluid passed down the mast, thence to the side of the vessel, ripping off a stauncheon or so, and then flew between the planking, where fire was comminicated, but soon extinguished. The Steamboat MONROE, lying near by, also sustained some trifling injury.
