Frightful destruction by earthquakes. --In the Dutch Territories on the west coast of Sumatra, and in the islands lying off it, earthquakes of excessive strength, took place in February and March, accompanied by violent commotions in the sea, the water retiring to a great distance and then rushing back with frightful force, sweeping everything before them.

Unusually heavy rains also prevailed in other parts of the dependencies. In Banda the nutmeg-crops suffered much injury, from this

This took place on the 30th of December.
