Death by Lightning. An extraordinary in- stance of death by lightning occurred at Slinfold, in Sussex, on Friday evening. Mr. E. Holden, a farmer, residing in that neighbourhood, was walking in his fields when a violent thunderstorm, accompanied by heavy rain, commenced. He proceeded to a kind of shed, or outbuilding, doubtless thinking that it would affor'd him safe Bhelter, but it appears that he had not been there many minutes before the lightning struck his place of refuge, crushing in the roof and dislodg- ing the rafters. Mr. Holden was shortly afterwards missed at the homestead, and on a search being insti- tuted he was found dead in the outbuilding. The unfortunate man appeared to have been killed instan- taneously by the lightning, his clothing being burnt 1 and Ehattered to shreds in a most remarkable manner, and his shoes Etruckfrom his feet, the soles separated from the upper leather.
