During the heavy thunder shower yesterday, the lightning struck the house of Capt. Frazer, on Locust street, near Farnum, tearing up son of the shingles, and doing some other unimportant damage. The House of Mr. B. Kennedy, on Third street, below Warren, was also struck and a portion of the cornice torn away. No person was injured in either of the houses.
