EARTHQUAKE IN BRISBANE. — It will be seen elsewhere that our Brisbane correspondent mentions the shock of an earthquake as having been experienced in Brisbane on Sunday night last. The terrific hailstorm here on Thursday night last, and the heavy thunder- storms on the three successsive following nights denote how heavily the atmosphere must have been surcharged with electricity; just the sort of weather that is said usually to precede earthquakes.
