New Orleans, December 26

  A letter from Fort Stoddert mentions that on the morning of the 16 inst. two shocks of an earthquake had been felt.  This is precisely the time it was felt at Natchez.  It is evident that our being on an island, and resting on the water, prevented us from feeling part of the shock.
