NEWCASTLE. THE EARTHQUAKE.—A correspondent from this place wntes About half-past three o'clock this morning (Tuesday), I, in common with the other inhabitants of this village, was very much alarmed at what we have unani- mously concluded to be a shock of earthquake. Its course seemed to be from west to east, and was attended with a heavy noise, which subsided into a deep hollow tone, leaving us for several seconds literally rocking in our beds, The very atmosphere of the room seemed awfully strange, and baffled description, as did the sensation we felt. I got up as soon as I became composed, for I assure you that I never was so disconcerted before, and found the moon and stars shining brightly, and the serenity of the morning strangely contrasting with the bedroom from which I bad but just emerged. Some sixteen years ago I experienced a slight shock at Newport, but it was as. nothing compared to this. It was, I believe, so sensibly felt at Hilstone Park, that •Mr. Hamilton's household all got up. I have heard, too, that it was much felt at Monmouth, and at several places in Herefordshire." Printed and Published by the Proprietor, WILLIAM HENRY CLARK, at his Offices, Bridge Street, Usk, in the County of Monmouth, October 10, 1863. r! ,1 ■'■- ■j "•>> jsu c
