New York, January 24


Another Earthquake. -- A correspondent, at jamaica, (L.I.) under date of this day, says -- "Yesterday morning, at fifteen minutes after nine o'clock, a shock of an earthquake was sensibly felt in this village. Every thing suspended in my store was set in motion for more than a minute.  The motion was a steady swinging backward and foreward.  The shock was felt also by my family, and by several of our neighbors."

We understand that the shock was noticed by many people in this city.

History Department of Hanover College.
