Charleston, S. 0., S ptember 8.
Yesterday a prominent architect and
builder from .New oifc, who
passing ttrouph tho ciiy, ir Juiced in
a stroll through the Etratta and took
occasion to examine some of the
heaisrf mortar and biick. "It seems
to me, be said, "that a food deal of
the destruction in Charleston is due
to careless and imperfect work
have noticed in very many instances
that the mortar used m the construc
tion of dwellings heie is of a vtry in
ferior kind. In some huUnces there
are hardly any traces cf lime and
cement. Bricks which ere laid in that
kind of nioriar will not rmnin to
(tether in any violent soock. Tbe city
cuvbttobave an tilieial to inspect
building material. There are buildt-rs
nottnlyin Charleston, but all over
the world, who will take advantage of
people and use cheat) material. I have
noticed several brick buildup
standing, the walls of which
are put up with an inferior
kind of morUr that will not hold
bricks together, and that is the kind
that I suspect bas been need in many
of the buiidiDgs tbat have been shat
tered. I notice a gocd deal of this pe
culiar kind of mortar all over tbe city
in the heaps of debris. 1 don t mean
to say that houses built with proper
moriar would have s'Oid the shock of
tbe earthquake you had in Charleston,
but 1 am ceruiu tbat tbe detruct on
would not have been eo great."
Things are settling do wa in Charles
ton, and the alight tremor of earth-
qutke wbicn is lelt once or twice a
day attract) li'.t e more attention tban
the rumbling of a passing wagon. La
borers are at ork in every direction,
clearing aay tbe masses or fdilun
brick and atone, aud there strumous
efforts made to protect the injured
buildings from tbe expected rains.
Everywhere there are signs of a restor
ation of the normal condition of
things, and business is trensae'ed juat
Tbe Kelief Committee, wl-ich wa
organized last Saturday, is at work and
, has now provided accommodatiocs iu
tents and in huts for over 3000 per
sons. Besides this, tho Subsistence
Committee is in full swing and is serv
ing out today ample rations of meat,
bread and sugar to all worthy appli
cants. Tbe plan is to make the dis
tribution hereafter upon the recom
mendation of the clergymen of the
different denominations in tbe city.
Subscriptions continue, to come in
very freely and the aggregate is now
about $1(0,000. Tbis will g a long
way toward relieving the preeeot dis
tress in the city, but it is only a drop
in tbe bucket in comparison with what
is required to make Charleston what
it was a little more than a week ego.

which be says:
TBK MAYOR'S PROCLAMATION.
"I have this day returned to my
loved city amid the widespread deto
laticn. Its homes shaken to their
foundation?, many of t-em ut
ter y wrecked, and few without si-ri-
ous injuries, and I find many of ycu
my follow citizens, with your Oh. rand
loved families living and sleeting ei'
under frail shelters and some under
tbe sky. with the recent tenibl
calamity aud its awful tuspense still
lingering in your minds. Amid the
rains of this far reaching and terib e
calamity 1 am profoundly thankful
tbat so much of life and propeity has
been spared, and I rejoice tbat the
same forlitude ar.d heroic patience
that in tbe Iraet of God and His Piovi
dence bss always characterized this
people, ia now their stay in tlm time
in dire trouble, and I am thankful to
add that in 4. his past week of disss er
the good order and he'pful co-opera'
tion of all clanees of our citiz jrs has
conduced to the maintenance of the
public weal. It is inspiring to heboid
amid these grave difhcu'tiea the re
sumption of uie busimsi life of our
city and the quenchless faiih cf ir
peep o in tii future. Tbe opeu ix
chongee, banks and leading bouses in
all departments of business, tho unin
terrupted commerce of railroads,
steamships act! sailing fleets, and the
ready v.li6rva-, the busy workshops
ana usual routine ot all tns avocations
anl employments of our citizsrs pro
claimed that we are a'ready going for
ward to a new fu'urp. That future is
based on work, not idleness, and I
call on every one to seek work in
every way possible. Although the
snua'ion is critical, it is not insur
mountable. It demands from every
citizen in our midet calm judgment,
the broadest charity, a resolve de
termination in word and act, an unfal
tering trust in God, to tide over tbe
unparalleled calamity that has unex
pectedly come npon u. This disaster
tbat reaches every borne and every
part of our city can only bs met
and overcome by tbe moral courage
and the united effort of the whole peo
ple, ibe immediate and serious duty
before us is tbe protection aud succor
of the houseless, the sick and tbe in
digent, the uufoitunatts snd tbe help
les that crowd around us. As the
Executive of the city it is my duty to
create an organization looking to bat
tling with the diflerect problems be
fore us, and as I have to ast at once, I
have therefore initiated this woik by
asking services of some of my follow
citizens in a worihy attempt to organ
ize such plans as will mitigate the suf
ferings and distress so universally sur
rounding u, and which threatens
such serious consequences to many of
cur people. The plans will be ex
plained if found in any way waLt'mg
in completeness a? the work pro
gresses. In this effort it 1 a rourne of
great gratitude to us to know that we
are not grappling with this utspeaka
bio disaster alone. Tho sympa
"thy of this whole union cf
Sthtas has touched us deeply and
the epan'aiieons giving of practical
and speedy aid in this, our struggle,
shows that the large and true heart of
tbe people of this gr'at(country btats
with us now, as it will thereafter. In
this hope, and cheered with this
promising future as a part of great
people, whose he'ping band is out
etretchel ta u?, let us turn manfully
tiourheiitageHnd.es many times in
the past, on tbis spot work out, under
the bleesing of God, a new future for
our now shattered but dearly loved

Capt. Clarke II. Jewett, of tbe schoon

experienced on the Lehave banks tbe
earthquake that prostrated Charles
ton. He says that the appearance at
tbat time indicated a high wind, but
All was quiet, when suddenly, almost
without warning, a black wall seemed
to rise on tbe water and a mightT wave
came rolling in that fair.y lifted the
schoaner on iti crest to a bight that
he never before knew a wave to reach.
Then the schooner went down. "I
felt like I was going over a bank,"
Capt. Jewett (aid, "and was buried in
the foam below. Eme ging from this
wave, with fa Is torn from her and
with the crown woik of tbe topmast
gone, tbe schooner encountered a sec
ond wave, but no hing to be com
pared with the first. A terrific gale
followed." A sa lor eats that be hap

wave came in s'ght. Thete was little

like a great hill that he cried, "Break

( parture for America.
London, September 8. A farewell
bannubt was siven to Mr. Justin Mc-
tartby this evening, prior to his de
parture tor America. Mr. l'arne 1
presided. In a speech Mr. Farnell
said that Americans would welcome
Mr. McCarthy as the foremcst Irieh
n an cf the age, and as a most truthful
exponent of the Irish question. Great
uruain s nrsc duty, be said, was to
give ehtect to the principles upon
which ber own greatnesi was based
namely, rule of tbe neoule bv the neo
pie aud for the people; and aleo, if
sue pleasd, to guarantee fair p'ay to
tne rrteetant c immunity in Ireland,

wouid not have fair play. A msjor.ty

Mr. McCarthy, in reply, said he was
not going to America cn a political
mission, but merely to pay a friendly
visit, as he wns extremely fond of
Americtns. Fifty-five guests were pres
ent including great many ladies.
Mr. Farnell in proposing Mr.
McCarthy's health, paid that gentle
man a warm tribute lor tbe fearlets
mauner ia which be bad risked bis
bigh literary reputation during the
pest eight yeais by espousing the
ceuse of bis countiy's freedom. It
was a good thing for Ireland, he said,
that men like Mr. McCarthy would be
willing to me their energies and tal
ents in her bahalf. - Irishmen were
deeply grateful to him,
and - the Americans and
the Irish patriots in . Ameri
ca would we'eome him as he deserv
ed. Continuing, Mr. Parnell said tbat
the question between England and
Ireland, or rather, of Eogland and
Ite'and, was rapidly coming to a solu
tion under tbe guidance of the illus
trious Gladstone. As Mr. Botcher bad
said, it was an extremely simple ques
tion, namely, the right of Irtland to
be a nation. If Bu'gsria'a rght to
nationality was admitted why was
Ireland's right nat adtnittea7 He
baliave d it wa-i because the people
failed to uuderatand tbe bearings of
the ones iocs. Tbey reemed to think
that "Ireland a nation" was
a fort of treasonable expression.
But he saw nothing treasonable in it.
Tbe fact was, England wanted to maUo
Irishmen Englishmen, but (Jod bad
made them Irishmen and the speaker
ventured to think it would ta-k all
the gininnof Churchill and Salis
bury to make them anything else.
rLiuuhter and cheers.l Mr. IVrnell
Baid that, although he did ni.t deny
that it was England's du'v to take se
curity for the welfare ot Prott-nlarit-
ism in Ireland, and he believed
that Ca'bolics would cheerfully (ive
reasonable eunrantee. therefore be
considered that ber prime duly was to
see that the principles ol the rule of
tbe people by tne people and for tbe
people should have effect in Ireland
equally wita England. Cheers. In
cot elusion, be said there was nothing
to fear from the Tory government.
He wes confident tbat the I ieh que -tion
would eoon arrive at a happy and
peaceful if sue. Prolonged cheers.
When Mr. McCarthy rose to respond
he was warmly greittd. He graceful
ly acknowledged tbe compliment that
had been paid him, and promised
never to abandon the cause of Ireland.
