Tho Modern Age.
For February opens with a well
translated and characteristic Spanish
story, entitled 'The Moor's Tower." It
is something of a revelation to most
readers ta discover that modern Spanish
literature possesses a writer so witty
and interesting as Alarcon. 'A Relic,"
from the French of Maupassant, is also
very bright and entertainioj;. Mme.
Henri Greville's "little Russian
SexTant' is a pleasing picture of
domestjo life in the times - before the
abolition of serfdom . Among the more
solid matter ia this number, the anony

standing in the English world of letters
than anything we have as yet , seen.

Of the periormance; which was called
a "musical extravaganza." we most
say that it was the silliest and most
puerilo we havo ever seen put on any
stage. Of the performers. Miss Agnes
Hatlock was a tair actress and rathsr
better than the average variety vocalist.
aud she certainly made the mcst other
poor material and miserable surround"
tugs. Miss Alice Gleason ' was not a
cood actress nor hardly a passable vo-4
calisU Mr. Frank Bad worth was pass-,
ably good as an actor and quite good
as a vocalist. Tho others were indif

attempt at alto, was tolerably good, t
There were five performers in all, and
they were a plenty. .
Tbe people of W&mingtoii are fond of

At about 6 o'clock this moruiug
many, of onr citizens were startled by
a rude shock which caused their build
ing nod furniture to, shake and tremble
quite perceptibly for.a moment or two.
At first it was not known what was
the producing cause, but as the same
shock, accompanied fcy a jar and rums
ble os of a distant ruoviug U aio, was
experienced in many portions of the
olty at the same. tirae.Mtjwas concluded
that it mustrhayebcci ocoasioncd by
an earthlttake;', This must be the cor
rect solution of the matter as: wo learn
through the signal office that lhc shock ,
of an earthquake, was felt at Bcatifortjt
N. C, at about, tho same time. The i
shock wa3 8o severe in "the" dispensary
of Dr. Mace; of that town, that it. made

at Fort Macon felt the shock , distinctly
while at breakfast.! ' !
In this city the shock laifed about 30
seconds, and we learn from our assis

from their houses in great . alarm We
nnbliah this latter information for the
