since which time there has bien no
vibrations. The people are jus, b
tiuuinz (to pick up coarrge to come
out. Eflor s are beina mado to c ear
paths through the streets for the pa?
&ge oi vehicles and pedestrians, and
tlie city OLce mora begins to show
some sigcs of hi . For two long dcys
and nights rf horror women and chil
dren have basn ramping out in the
parkland squar e. Trie ep-tbquake
has ewept over the c ty like a beeom
ul destruction, and Charles' ou is laid
- down in tbe dust It U irapoatible to
give any correct eptiintite of the low of
life and property for the two days and
ciitbti. The people have done nr.ts
iug but bu idle ou the equarts, small
dei ached relief parties gon g on to dig
out tbe dead from tbe debris ir succor
tbe wounded. The fir it ajateuaized
effort to get at the facts is now mak
ing. Tcelhtof the dead r.-ccgo'zed
and reocrted ibis morning at this time
(11 o'clock a. m ) foots up to eixtn
and the search his ooly commenced.
Tne list of the wounded will go
into the hundreds. About jven
eighths of ibe bouses and public
building in the city aie eithvr dam
aged or wrecked. Even tbe historic
St. Michael's and (it. Philip's are so
badly wrecked that it is feared th'y
will have to be taken don. Tue

been none tow fxr twelve lour, aud
strong hopes a e ea'erlaintd that the

As the deta Is o! tSe calamity in
this city ere gathored its ell'ecisb

feared a'so that much distress will
prevail, as by lar the larger ptrt of

cheerful ai poisible under the terrible
circum'tancee, and aie trying to re

Myers's cigar etr re and Smith's sten

the npper fl-.ors expowd. The Plenge
building, at the corner of Churcb

uear the German churcb, which on
Tuesday was perfectly dry Band, in
low full of fresh water. Near Shall
stroet there is a cab.n occupied by a
colored man that is completely Bnr
ronnded by yawning chasm?, extond-
in mrougn ine earta sur-.ee lor ten
feet and over. All aronud this there
are sinks of fresh wa'er and mAMM
of mad, with queer looking soft sub
stances tha. h.'ve never been een be
fore. I' is extended by many that
tbe mud and other substances found
around the village are volcanic mat
ter. Just after tho first great shock
on Tuesday night there was decided
and distinct smell of escaping
sulphuric acid gas over the entire vil
lage. The smell lasted throughout the
night, and was distinct in those locali
tiej where the cavitiei in the earth
were moet numerous. S.me say that
piriionsof the mod thrown up by the
wa'er spouts are strongly impregnated
with sulphur, and that small cortiona
ofsnlphurcan be found in the mud.
Not far from Charleston, on the road

FATAL ACCIDENT.
Near Ti n Mile Hill a fa nl accident
occurred on Tueady nivht. Tue down
Coiumhia train lumped the track and
the eogineer (BurneJ and the fi email
( Arnold, colored,) were bidly inju'od
by tne tremendous leap which the
train took in the dark uudr the on
seen ii fluence of the shock thatdis
mantled toe road. It was then raised
on the top of tbe succeeding terrrBtrul
undulation and, having reached tb
top of tbe wave, a sudden sw rving of
the for.ie to the right and loft hurled
the ill fated train do (tn the embank
ment. How it was done waa plainly
indicated, in many puces alonir tli
trc i of the Scuta Carolina and North
ea-torn railroad, aud for (maces of
several hundred arris in width
the dreadful energy of the eaitbquake
was expended in two particular wayp,
First Toeie were intervals oi a huiv
dred yards or more in wbich the track
had toe appearance of baviuz been
alternately taisi-d and depreeeed, like
a line of wave! iiozen in the last po.i

where t!ie force had o-tiilated from
east to west, becdini the rails in r"
verse ctuves, most of them them tak
lug tl.e i-hape of a siiule.taDd others
of a doub e letter 8, placed alongeide
oi u. i ne accidents occurred almost
invariably at trestles and culverts,
There were no lees tlan five of them
between tbe seten mile inaction and
Jedborg. Iacthr place, the track
had the appearance of beiha- kinked
for m lus, but alwaj s io tbo.'e c8.s in
the d ree ion of the rails. The train
at the tma of tbedisafiter wa. running

about a mile toutti of Jedhnrg it er.
coun o-Hd a terrible experience. It
was frr'g'ne t ilh buni'r. diof excur-
Si'iuisis returning irom the umintainp.
They were gay and hanpy, lauubing
and taming, wnen allot a sudden, in

Bucderry H uesreaded, and as it ran
id y toll, it was flung violeutly over to

was har ed, ub a roar as tf a die

finally subsided on tne tiaclc aud took
a plunge downward, evidently
tne desienoiog wave, xne en
gineer put down the brakei tight
ont so great was tne oncina
and added momentum, that the train
kept right ahead. It is said on trust
worthy authority that the train acta
ally galloped along the t'ack, the front
and rear trucks using aad falling al
ternately. The nlinntt confusion pre
vailed, womoa anacoudren annexed
with dismay, and tbe bravest heart
Quailed ia momentary expectation of
a more terrible catksirjphe. The Rev.
J-illison' tapers cnacta to be on

trie moment tne uea: anvica ana coun

then taken baik in the direct on of
Jedbu.-g, aod on the way back the
work oi the ea thqnake was terribly
patent. The train had actually pasted
over ooe of these serpentine carves
already d.-ecribed, and it is the simple
truth to state ttiat every soul
on board was saved loleiy thrctuh

dence.
THB HORROR OF THE SITUATION IN 8CM-
HERVILLE
on Wednesday wos much Intensified
by certain manifetntions that were
not observed in Clnrl-ton to any
grrat extent. All during the day
to ere ere constant detonations,
now en.t. now west, and from
all poehible directions. It resembled
the di'-ctiarge oi Heavy guns at inter
vals of abobt ten minutes and was like
the sounds of a bombardment at
great distance. All of these explo
sioua were not accompanied by trem
ors ot tne eartn as it was oniy oc
casionally that tbe earth wou.d quake
from subterranean discharges. A
remarkable fict was noticed
in Summerville, ia respect to
tbe bulging of the water from
the interior of the earth ; nearly all of
the wells had been at low water.
There wa. a sadden rise in all of thete
wells, aud the additional water was
pare, .booking down into one oi
these wells the observer conld, on
tbe eve of any of the load detona-
t'oor, tee the rivers rise up the walls
of tbe wells, and after the shock
again subside. There Is rather a
more cheerful fesling tonight, bot no
sense of security will repair shattered
honsB and renew ruined homes. Of
fers of assistance are coming from dif
ferent quarters, and it is existed
that the City council win organize a
relief committee tomorrow.
DesDi'e ihe losses by the earth
quake, Charleston is in as good posi
tion as ever for the tranaction of tbe
annul autumn trade. There is ample
warehouse nd wjiarf room, thscom
preesesarein trim, aad merchaits and
factors are ready to dl expeditiously

AT BUMUEBVILLB
yesterday nil tbe inhabitant 1ml
ahandontd their hoasea aftr the
shock on Tuesday night and few of
them bad the temBrity to return. Tue
S' o.:k is said to have been much more
violent than in Charleston, but the
general characteristics were, of conrip,
tfceewmn. Io BumlnervillH, however,
the people ruhed affrighted into an
inky bhek duknoes and in the gloom
and deepaK, the wailing rf tho wo
men, the shrieks of tbe children and
tbe frightened voices of Ihe men
made up a scene and sounds that
were i quail distressing and appall
ing. As in Charleston, all thiongh
tbe night Uer was nothing hut
eicknets and Borrow and paffeiing
and ''the constant drjad tf final
dissolution and utter annihilation.
When morning dawned, the ruin nnd
devastation found fo be com
plete. There was not a home that
tiad not beea made desolate in a
greater or lets degree. All the chim
no)8 had disappeared, walls were rent
in twain, ceilims fell, and in numer
ous cases the lioums that rested on
wooden blocks or masonry were lev
eled to the ground. Other bouswi
wore snlit fiom top to bottom, and
le t with yawning chasms ia the
