Worthy of Observation.
On Sunday afternoon, while Sol was throwing down upon the city his heated rays, we observed a dark and heavy shower of rain passing from the state of New Jersey across the south-west part of Staten Island. In the evening, another gust of wind, rain, lighting and thunder was seen crossing the Hudson from West to East. All was clear and tranquil in this city. Yesterday morning the wind was Northerly, weather clear, cool and pleasant; and a little after sunrise, we found that the trees on our Battery were literally blackened with wild pigeons, driver, no doubt, by a North wind into this part of the state. The sportsmen were on tiptoe, but a wholesome Corporation law saved the lives of many of those winged fugitives.June 7, 1822. Salem Gazette 36(45): 2.
