On the 23J of iMarch, between 3 and 4

ui:Ji one of the most terrible earthquakes

quake extended into China ; but as there
are several volcanoes among the mount

more than probable to me that there are
sub erranean ' communications between

roilinar of thunder, is, I think, satisfacto
ry eviJence that there are subterranean
communications between these widely

While the above fire was still burning-,
another broke out in the four story bride
store No. 164 South street, occupied by
Jesse R Forker & Co., dealers in junk,
&c, which was entirely destroyed, and
the buildings on each .side of it were
more or less , damaged. The firemen,
supposing that the fire was entirely sub
dued, left the ground about . 1 1 o'clock,
but between I and 2 o'clock this morn
ing, the flames were seen to burst through
thereof of the large building known as
the Thomas H. Smith store," and a
destruction of property ensued, scarcely
equalled by that of any conflagration m
this city since the great fire of December,
1335.' Of the amount of the pecuniary
loss, it is impossible to give anything more
than a mere estimate. 'It may bestated
in round numbers at from 8L000.000 to
The stores destroyed were seven in
number, as follows: The large store front
ing on South and Front streets, built some
years since by Thomas H. Smith at a
cost, as we have heard it stated, of about
8100,000. It was oneof the finest build
ings of the description in the city, and
though but . four stories in height, was
higher than most of the five stories stores.
It was occupied by J. J. Hicks, as a stor
age depository, and was filled with mer
chandize of the most valuable description,
anion? which were the cargoes of the
ship Nantasket, of Boston, which arrived
here on the 2d December, and the shin
vsovwgion.or .ijaiumore, which arrived
here on the 27th October from Canton.
In addition to these cargoes there was
a quantity of other merchandize destroyed
in the store, among which were about
200 barrels of flour, and a number of
bales of cotton. Some of the property
was rescued from the flames, consisting of
cotton, and say about two or three hun
dred boxes of teas, principally, we judged
from the marks, belonging to the caro
of the Nantasket. The building itself is
entirely gone, one only of the side walls
remaining to tell where it was standin:

Resolved, That the disastrous fate of so
many steamboais in various parts of the

indifference to human life, on the part of
ihose who have the control and manage
ment of these vessels, against the conse
quences of which every man is inteiested

the Legislature of Massachusetts to pass
resolves, instructing our Senators and re
questing our Representatives, to brin the
subject before Congress, and that a Simi

citizens of other States. .
AwrtiL Calamities. A pamphlet of
vages wnii mis title has recently been
published in this city, giving a full ac
count of the shipwrecks on the coast of
Massachusetts, by the dreadful hurricanes
of Dec. 15, 21, and 2? '; and likewise an
account of the loss of the Steamer Lex
ington. We extract the following reca
pitulation, and moral reflections. Zion
Recapitulation. Prom the foregoing
account, it appears that 1 barque, 17 brigs,
68 schooners, and 4 sloops, were lost Tn
the three gales; and the estimated num
ber of lives destroyed at the same time is
from 150 to 200. It was supposed 50
were lost at Gloucester alone in the first
storm. Besides this, 23 ships and barques,
22 brigs, 163 schooners, and 5 sloops
were dismasted, driren ashore, or vreatly
injured m some other way. The destruc
tion of propeity must have been near fit -000,000.
We do not suppose we hate
ascertained the loss of near aft the vessel'
which have been deployed by these tor
nadoes. Many wete foundered at sea
and some went ashore and to pieces' so
that no intelligible record of their loss is
left behind.
Alas! what destruction. What wide
spread ruin and desolation. Who can
look upon ir, without .fearing Him, whose
voice is heard in the tempest, and whose
will directs the storm? I,:o the short
period of fourteen days, the; agony of
years was pressed. There was "enough
of despair and horror felt in that lime,to
chill the blood of youth or palsy the arm
of the strongest. It has past. The wa
ters heave as calml y as ever. The winds
are hushed upon its bosom, and the gentle
heavens 00k down in Smiles on the splen
dors of the deep. Bu the shipwrecked
mariners of December where ore they?
Oh, that we may so live as to be prepar

South Carolina. Some months since,
a white man in South Carolina murder
ed a slave. The case was one of great
malignity, and the murderer was'sen
tenced to be hung. A petition was got
up in his behalf, but Governor Butler re
jected the prayer, in decided terms, alleg
ing that it was high time the laws pro
tective of the persons of slaves should be
enforced. His answer to the petition was
published in the papeis of the North, as
an evidence of the reign of justice in a
slave state. Every body, except a few
disbelievingabo!itionists,"thought of course
that the criminal would sufferthe sentence
of the law.
Now what is the fart? The murder
er is pardoned! We cannot be mis
taken. We have it from one who was
on the spot, and knows what he testifies.
Governor Butler reprieved the condemn
ed man; :he reprieve extended beyond the
term of his office; his successor. Govern
or Noble, being petitioned, pardoned the
murderer. Philanthropist.

much attention at the North, where all
