18 MARCH 1843, Page 9

Liverpool was visited by a very palpable earthquake, yesterday morn-

ing about one o'clock ; the shock being felt on both sides of the Mersey. The phmnomena were of the usual kind, but too strange to the Liverpool folks not to astonish them greatly. Two explosions were heard, and two concussions were perceived, smart enough to force open the window of a house. People were awakened out of their sleep by the shaking of the houses.

The earthquake also visited Fleetwood at the same time. People in steamers off the Isle of Man felt the grinding sensation under the vessels which is so often observed, as if they had run aground.

A shock was perceived in Guernsey, on Friday last week, at the same hour.
