The Earthquake not having
been noticed in the National Intelligencer of December 17,
the day after the principle shock, gave rise to an opinion
previous to our last publication, that it had not passed
the Alleghany. But papers since received from
Washington City, and various parts of Virginia, the
Carolinas and Georgia, state its occurrence in those
places; and it appears to have been more violent at the
most southern parts, from which we have heard, than here.
It is said to have been attended in several places by
flashes of lightning. This corroborates the opinion
of some philosophers; the Earthquakes are frequently
caused by electricity.
