by two earthquake shocks, and tbe
prophecy of a hlrd, which was to de

these shocks was on Feb. 8 and threw
down several chimneys; the second
was on March . Public notice was
directed to tbe fact that there was ex
actly a month's interval lirtween the
two shocks, and n crack brained fel

tlie idea that there would be a third in
the forthcoming month that he com-

the streets predicting the destruction
of London on April 5.

thought to be a place of great security,
nnd accordingly all the available mer

with people, who passed the night be

(ireat consternation was caused in
London in I'i'li by a prediction that on
the list day of February the waters of
the Thames would overflow the whole
city of London and wash away 10,000
bouses. The prophecy was implicitly
believed, aud many families packed up
their goods auSl removed into Kent and
F.Ksex. As ihe time drew near the
numbers of these emigrants Increased.
In January droves of workmen might
be seen, followed by their wives aud
children, trudging tin foot to the vil
lages within fifteen or twenty miles to
await the catastrophe. People of a
higher class were, also to be seen lu
vehicles bound on a similar errand.
I5y the middle of January nt least
20.000 persons had quitted the doomed
city, leaving nothing but the bare walls
of their homes to be swept away by
the impending floods. Many of tbe
wealthier class took up their abode on
the heights of Hampstend. Higbgnte
and lllackheath, and some erected tents
as far away as Waltham ubbey on the
north and Croydon on tho south of the
On the fateful morning the wonder
ing crowds were nstlr at an early hour
to watch the rising of tbe waters. It
was predicted that the inundation
would be gradual, not sudden, so that
they expected to bave plenty of time
to escape as soon as they aw the wa
ters rise beyond the usual mark.
The day grew older, and the Thames
flowed on quietly as of yore. Tbe tide
ebbed at Its usual hour, flowed to its
iisiiaf height and then ebbed again. Juut
as if twenty astrologers had not pledg
ed their word to the contrary.
Blank were their faces as evening
approached, and as blank grew the
faces of the citizens to think that they
had made such fools of themselves.
Night get in, and the obstinate river
would not lift its waters to sweep
away even one home out of the 1.

afraid to go to sleep . Many hun

niton them like a thief in the night.
Ou the morrow it was seriously dis
cussed whether it would not be advis-
I able to duck the false prophet in the
fiver. Luckily for them they thought
of an expedient which allayed the
popular fury. They aserted that by
tin error they had fixed the dale of
this awful inundation a century too
early. Tbe present generation of
cockneys were safe and London would
