Stabroek, den 20ste Sept. 1806.

J. Jackson, Esq. whose unfortunate accident we stated in our last paper, died on Monday last, at his Plantation.

On the morning of the 15th inst. just before day break, the house of Lewis Forrester, Esq. at Mahaica, was struck by lightning, and the south gable end, from top to bottom, shivered into a thousand pieces. The force of the electric fluid was so astonishingly powerful, that some of the pieces were driven to the distance of 30 feet; providentially, however, although they were forced across the bedsteads in which Mr. and Mrs. Forrester and their children were sleeping, no one sustained the least injury.
