18th of November last :
The 1 s of November was a bauti
fill clear day, with a line ilue West
India sky. The wind was 'A.st by
North,- but very little of' it. The oceaii
was fqiim, .nearly a calin. '.le stnn
sIhone iright and warm, and ihe barome.
Oer sLood aL 2.1 degrces, Iteieur, in
thein shadi. There was not. Ihe least
sign of ainy kind that foretold tiis great,
revi~ttion inl nature, when at once, just
about, a quart0er 0 o3 o'clock P. M.,
there was Ieard ti inderground rumn
bling noise which iminilintely was follow
ed by a Ifrril eartIiI ialw. which seeied
I coe fron omh by \vest;aInd pasil
oin to Nori b Iast. ' The ea14lhsm
ed as 1i composed of small waves rising
and sinking under your feet, so that. if
you maide a stejp forward, voori foot
seimed to meet higher groud, and if
'oui put it backward it also luere met
higher gromid. To stand sill i oine,
spot was impossible, and when trying
to walkjt. was as if sonethimg kept you
back. 'f'ho underground sound, Iluilo
the first shock was going on for about
one inlnnute and a Lalf, was most, dread
fuil. It terrified every living soul. The
siln1 sieCeld at once to become dil ; it
was as if ii. was eclipsed. and- this dim
ness lasted tiat first. day till siuniet and
contmned the whoil next pav, but in a
smaller degree, anid oti. wore entirely
away in m lhe courso of two days more.
It. was as if the siu, though apparently
as bright as usual, had lost some of its
w.armilg amd lightiig powor. A rcor
i'he first terrific shock the ground kept
on groaning and Irembh ig, whlen. about
t.i minutes aner, a seconid strong shoci
was felt. Directlv After this second
shock, the ocean, which' shortly before
the first shock had receded froni the land
about several hundred feet, was seen to
rise like one huge wave anad come in to
ward the harbour. It $ioo(d pl) like one
straight White wall, about fifteen to
twenty feet high, and ,advanced very
fast into tt harbour, s4weeiing or ill)
setting tihe small vessels before it, and
raisin hie large men ol-war and other
steanlers to its top. '.lie appearanee of
this wave was like a .white masoned
Wall, erect and.straighti, as if made after
a rule ; it. had no aplieannee at. all of a
wave in, general. It bloke in over ihe
lower parts of tho townto tile height of
a couple of feet. and to the extt of
t.wo hundred to twvo hmidred and fifivy
feet inland, according o the flatiiess of
the localit v'. Ttis~ wavt rising was re
peated a second ti me, atfer an miterval
of about toii minutes. id thte seconid
wave seemed to be a littb largecr than the
first, and went . a itule forther in land.
After thieso two waves ud passed away
the ocea'n'remained as gtr as thme eye
could see again qite phin,. just as b'e.
fore the first. shock of esthquiake.
Theo shocks continued and' were felt
every few minutes. it Was as if
