[Road Destroyed]

We are informed from a respectable source that the old road to the post of Arkansas, by Spring river is entirely destroyed by the last violent shocks of earthquakes, chasms of great depth and considerable length across the country in various directions, some swamps have become dry, others deep lakes, and in some places hills have disappeared.


Made possible by the Rivers Institute and the
History Department of Hanover College.
