In addition to former accounts communicated thro' the medium of the Spy, others have reached us from various distant quarters - - But first we must observe that several shocks, all comparatively light, have been felt here since our last.  One on Monday between 10 and 11 A.M. was accompanied by a rumbling noise.  The last we have noticed happened the next morning about 2 o'clock.  It now appears the earthquake has been felt along the Atlantic coast as far as N. Jersey inclusive - - but [want of post?] precludes the details.  Our readers are referred to a preceding column, for further particulars of this phenomenon on the Mississippi where it has operated with considerable violence.
