It is a remarkable fact that the eruptions of Vesuvius have, almost in every case, been preceded by alarming indications of the volcanic activity in Perthshire. About a month ago, it will be recollected that some smart shocks were felt at Crieff and Comrie. It now turns out that, almost immediately afterwards, Vesuvius became convulsed. It thus appears that there must be a chain of strata, of uniform sympathy, stretching from the Grampian and Ochil Hills to Italy.
