I The Earthquakesin Spain FURTHER SHOCKS IN MALAGA. I Terrible Devastation. I [" TIMES TELEGRAM.] I MADRID, Sunday.—A telegram from Velez- Malaga announces that two fresh shocks occurred yesterday, completing the ruin of the town. Advices from Jerez say that slight oscillations were felt there at an early hour yesterday. I [RECTER'S TELEGRAM.1 I MADRID, Saturday, Noon.—The official Gazette to day publishes the royal decree directing the opening of a national subscription in aid of the sufferers by the earthquake, and inviting the Cortes and provincial auth orities to contribute to the fund. The decree also authorizes the Spanish ambassadors and consuls abroad to receive sub- scriptions, and invites the public employes to give one day's pay on the 1st of February towards the fund. Committees will be formed in all the provinces to receive contributions, and local committees will also be appointed to arrange for the distribution of the relief fund. The property tax on the destroyed buildings has been remitted. The balance of the Marcia floods subscription will also be employed for the benefit of sufferers by the present calamity. The Impartial states that the King has given 21,600 the Queen £ 400, and the Infanta Isabel 2200 towards the National subscription. MADRID, Sunday, 9.45 p.m.—Fresh shocks of earthquake were felt yesterday in-several places in the southern provinces, including Losa, Alhama, Jaen, and Velez Malaga, fissures being made in the ground. Great alarm prevails among the inhabitants of Peripa, owing to the continuance of the shocks. Ac- cording to reports from Andalusia, the panic among the population of the provinces. of Granada and Malaga continues. The railway stations are occupied by whole families, who sleep m the railway vans, trucks, and carriages. The trains arriving at Granada are immediately filled with hundreds of people of all' classes, desiring to pass the night in the carriages. The town of lirantda has the appearance of a camp. All the squares and open places are filled with huts and tents, occupied by thousands of persons who are afrait to pass the night in their own houses, md who congregate round the bonfires. Religiois processions are frequently held in order to mplore the Divine clemency. The town is severelj damaged, but the Alhambra is unharmed with zhe exception of one tower, which is stated to have been slightly injured. Great distress exists in the towns and villages destroyed, and famine prevails in some places. The people encamped in the fields are also short of provisions. The bodies of the victims buried under the ruins of the alien buildings are beginning to decompose. According to reports from Alhama, the appearante of the ruins there is imposing. The town consists of two portions, the upper and lower. During the earthquake on Christmas night, the upper to,vn, situated on the side of a valley, fell upon the lower portion. Over 1,500 houses were destroyed, and more than 300 dead have already beer. recovered. It is calculated th:tt 10,000 head o: cattle were killed. Besides this, five churches, five convents and hospitals, the town hall, the prisons, clubs, and theatre were destroyed. Sevices are now held in the public square, the altar being set up in a carriage. Seven thousand persons are encamped in the fields. The engineers at Albanuela reports that the few remaining buildings are in a dangerous state, and that it will probably be necessary to blow them up for the public safety. A meeting of representatives of the Madrid press of all parties, and of all the principal clubs and literary and military societies was held here to-day, at which it was unanimously decided to support the fund in aid oi the victims of the earthquake. Severe weather prevails in many parts of Spain. The trains have heen stopped by snow, and no foreigh mails have been received here during the past three days. ["CENTRAL NEWS" TELEGRAM.] I GRANADA, Sunday.—Fresh shocks were again again felt at Vilez Malaga, yesterdny, and addi- tional damage done, the houses already tottering and cracked in all directions coming down with a terrible crash. A despatch which I have just received from Xeres, or as it is sometimes called Xerez, also states that a few slight shocks have been felt there, but the damage as yet is but trifling compared with the terrible devastation wrought elsewhere. The panic at Malaga still continues, and also at Alhama. Hunger and sickness are making sad ravages amongst the poor sufferers who are encamped in the fields. We have just received an official intimation that the Government have, with a view to some slight alleviation of the distress so prevalent at Alhama, decided to erect, as soon as possible, 800 houses, to serve as temporary shelters for the poor outcasts. But, praiseworthy as the motive is, one cannot help asking—What is this among so many PUBLIC SUBSCRIPTION IN IRELAND. I At the instance of the Spanish Consul, a fund I vTSoi'un parted in Dublin, headed by Cardinal iVLcGabe with £ 10, for the sufferers in Andalusia.
