Newspapers received at
this office from each of the following places, contain
accounts of the late Earthquake:
Louisville, Lexington, Georgetown, Frankfort and
Washington, in Kentucky; --Chillicothe, Circleville,
Zanesville, Dayton and Lebanon, in this state.
From these statements
it appears that the Earthquake has been equally severe
in all those places, as in this town, and accompanied by
a similar state of the atmosphere—dark, cloudy, misty,
drizzling, and in some places a little rain. The
accounts from Louisville and Frankfort state that it was
preceded by a rumbling noise like distant thunder.
But this does not seem to have been noticed in any other
of the accounts we have yet received. No material
damage seems to have been sustained in any place yet
