On the 21st instant at about 3 minutes to 10pm a severe shock of an earthquake was felt here. It was so strong that glasses, candlesticks &c on sideboards, tables and other things were set in motion. The sound resembled heavy laden wagons passing over bridges at full speed. The shock lasted about a minute, but the noise nearly five minutes. It is impossible to describe the anxiety of those who felt the shock. – Zuid Afrikaan

From circumstances over which the Editor of this Paper has at present no control, he feels himself under the imperious necessity of giving Notice to his numerous Subscribers and supporters that he must desist, for a time, from his labours as a Public Journalist. He confidently expects that this vacation from usual duties will not be inconveniently prolonged, as he has put in train those arrangements necessary to enable him soon to resume his office, arrangements which he confidently anticipates to have in full operation before the lapse of many weeks. In the meantime, however, he must draw to a certain extent upon the indulgence of his Supporters, and ask of them to bear with him a little during the present unavoidable interruption.
