A storm of unparalleled force in these latitudes raged over Dublin and the country Northwards on Thursday. The day was genial and spring- like, till shortly after noon ; the mercury in the barometer then made a preternatural descent : at three o'clock the sky was portentously dark, and presently afterwards what seems like a typhoon, or black-squall, burst over the city. Terrible damage was done : trees were torn up and borne away from their sites, light buildings were scattered to fragments, and many persons were mutilated by falling bodies. Hailstones larger than marbles were rained down with such force that 30,000/. worth of "glass alone" was
pulverized ; not a window on one side of whole streets has a whole pane of glass left ; and the roofs of houses were- much injured. The oropi haee of course suffered to a great extent.
