A letter from Jamaica, says, that by an advice boat put in there, they have an account that they had another shock of an earthquake at the island of Hispaniola, which had thrown down most of the new buildings there, and many lives were lost ; a great deal of damage was also done on the shore by the sea overflowing so far, that the ships that lay at anchor were forced on shore, and left, at the return of the tide, on dry land.

Last week was seized at a shop in the city, a parcel of French fans ; the penalty on each fan is 200l.
