A steamer bas just arrived lroui tbe wreck
of the steamer Atlantic. Tbe ship le almost
intact, and only a few packages of her cargo
have come ashore. Tee report that Mrs.
F^ter's body bad been lound was not correct,
and the story In some ot the papers tbat Al?
bert Sumner committed suicide ls also false.
One of bis triende, wbo was saved, says that
Mr. Sumner lietel on to the wreck as long as
he possibly could, and then was washed off by
the sea. Tbe captain Bays that the stories of the
mutilation of the bodies by the crew are false
and the reports of robberies largely exigerai
ed. He says tbe people at Pro?prc. did a;1 they
could for the living and dead; b it among me
crowds who flocked to the place irom the sur?
rounding country, there were some who
robbed the bodies whenever they could get a
chance. The collector of customs Is awaiting
Instructions from headquarters, and will pro?
bably commence an official Investigation this
evening. The captain can give no explana?
tion of the cause of the disaster, except a
miscalculation as to tbe curreut and tne ves?
sel's speed. Great numbers of people are
leaving the city In steamers, going down to
tbe wreck.
No efforts will be spared to recover the
bodies of the following named passengers:
Mr. 0. M. Fisher and wile, Vermont; Mr. W. J.
Bheat, wife, son and dau^ht r, Nevada; Henry

Brodie and Mrs. Barker, Chicago; Mrs. Brind?
ley, Mrs. Davidson and daughter, England,
with tbe names of the bodies reported this

of cabin passengers who w re lost. Captain
Williams aud his assistants Bearclted the
islands around tbe wreck thoroughly last
night, and picked ont from among me rocks
many bodies and brought ashore mose report?
ed this moro'ng, which had been telegraphed
for by Irlends.
The bodies reported recovered this morn?
ing have been dressed and placed In tightly
sealed metallic cofflos, and await tbe arrival
oif-frlends and relatives to take them lo

THE SPIRIT OF THE SOUTH.
A CHARLESTON GREETING IO HORA?
TIO SEYMOUR AND W. C. BRYANT.
The Hon. Wm. D. Porter's Remarks nt
the Reception given by Colonel Lu t li?
era-An Eloquent Expression of the
Sentiment of our People.
At the reception given the Hon. Wm. G.
Bryant and tbe Hon. Horatio Seymour, by
Colonel Blcbard Lathers, on Wednesday eve?
ning, tbe eloquent and leellng address deliv?
ered by the Hon. Wm. D. Porter delighted
every one who heard lt. In compliance with
a very general desire, we have the pleasure
ol placing Governor Porter's remarks before
the readers ot TUE NEWS:
ADDRESS OF THE HON. W. D. PORTER.
Ladies and Gentlemen-I am sure we all
feel grateful to our host, Colonel Lathers, for
tbe opportunity of meeting and Interchanging
views with bio distinguished guests from tbe
North, both of whom are well known to lame
one In tbe field of politics and statesmanship,
the other In tbe higher and serener region of
poetry, where, like his own ''Waterfowl," tie
hovers, self-sustained in the thin, pure atmos?
phere aloft. They come a9 friends, with
words of peace on their lips. We give them
welcome, and cordially reciprocate their
friendly greetings. Once enemies, now fellow
countrymen, we lay the olive branch on tbe
altar of a common and reunited country.
Let each one come with honest
purpose, and over toe sacred symbol of peace
renew the vow of mutual fidelity and a com?
mon nationality. Tbe war Is at an end; what
we now want is a lair, substantial peace.
Henceforth, our fortunes and our fate are
one; and li we would make those fortunes
and that fate happy, prosperous and enduring,
the flag that floats over us Bhould know no
distinction ol part or section, but embrace In
Its protecting tolds all parts and all sections
as coequal portions of one common and un?
divided country. Let whatever of bitterness
or prejudice may remain on either side be
burled out of eight. Let the memories and
tbe Borrows of each be respected and held
sacred. Let one hope, one aspiration, one
endeavor for the common prosperity, animate
us all in tbe future.
These Irlendly vl-its will bring us all to
a better understanding. There waa an "un?
pleasantness" once; that ls over; but lhere ls
a misunderstanding still. I do not mean to
say the fault ls all on one side, nor do I mean
to deal wl'.h any question of controverted pol?
itics. But I cannot help thinking that tbe
people of the North have not appreciated the
honesty, depth and universality ot the senti?
ment that underlay the great secession move?
ment of the South. It was not only an honest
sentiment, but a deep, sincere and pervading
conviction connecter) with considerations of
public safely. The cause or ground o', that
conviction ls now removed. Whether lt was
then right or wron/, well-founded or 1)1
iouno'ed, ls not now ihe question. I am deal?
ing only with the fact ul ns existence, and tbe
universality of tbe sentiment or conviction is
tbe best proof ol its honesty. A whole people
do not enter upon a great movement like that
witb almost entire unanimity, and sus?
tain lt for years wllb unparalleled sacrifice of
blood and treasure, to the very verge of im?
poverishment and ruin, without the sincerest
convictions. We know that we were honest,
and thal we did our very best to sustain our
position. We know, too, that we utterly
failed to do so. And men that have honestly
and bravely fought out their fight, whatever
the result of tbe coin oat, can afford to Icok
each other 6trulght in the face, and strike
hands and be friends again. In such cases
men generally become faster friends than
they were be lore. Tbey have tested each oth?
er's mettle, and learned to respect lt. There ls
no disparagement, no sente ol humiliation on
either side. Where all is lost on one side but
honor, that very honor of tbe deleated and
the magnanimity of the victor fur Die h a
ground upon which both may stand upon a
footing of equality. If we did not feel and as?
sert our sincerity and mauhood, we should
not be flt to be accounted American citizens.
We lost our cause, but we did not lose our
honor. If we are Jealous ol ibis, let a gener?
ous sentiment appreciate and respect the
feeling.
We stand in view of Fort Sumter. What a
tide of recollections does tbat name summon
up. It ls not my purpose to rehearee them.
Fort Sumter ls a stubborn fact; it stands
where lt stood; lt is and will be memorable in
history; but lt may be used lor other purposes
than those ol war. Within sight and bearing
of the spot on whlcb we stand tbe first gun of
the civil war was fired. Now that the war ls at
an end, would to God that from this same
spot and on this very night there may go
forth voices that will calm the troubled
waterB and charm down from above the bless?
ed spirit ot peace to brood over them. Then
will Sumter, which first broke the echoes of
war and clothed herself with thunder, be girt
around with blessings, and aland lorth lo all
the world as tbe type and emblem of peace in
a once distracted but now reunited land.

THE NEW CUSTOMHOUSE.
A SPLENDID ARCHITECTURAL ORNA?
MENT TO CHARLESTON.
Progregs of the Work-An Elaborate
Design for the Entrance-Improve,
ments to the G round?.
Under tbe efficient management of Mr. T.
H. Oakshott,ine United States superintendent
of construction, tbe work upon tbe new Cus?
tomhouse steadily advances towards com?
pletion. The modifications of the original de?
sign of the building have already been de?
scribed in THE NEWS, and it now remains to
notice the plans lor embellishing the grounds
around the building, which have been recent?
ly decided upon. The open space between
East Bay street and the west portico of the
building will be converted into a tesselated
stone terrace or platform, five feet high, fifty
four feet wide, and sixty-lour feet deep. Tbe
north and south sides of the terrace will
be composed of solid granite blocks, panelled
off Into sections of six feet In length.
On the west side, on street front of
the terrace, there will be a flight of seven
stone steps, which will afford easy access to
the floor or upper surface. The floor of the
terrace will consist of alternate squares of
New Tork blue-stone and red Seneca tiles,
resting upon a layer of concrete supported by
brick arches. The terrace will be surrounded
on all sides, except that next to the building,
by a granite blocking course, or wall, Ave feet
high, which will be provided with an opening
on the front to allow Ingress and egress. On
each of the two outer angles of the terrace
will be a large ornamental lamp, upon an iron
poBt set In a rouBd granite pedestal, of ornate
design, Alteen feet high by two feet In diam?
eter. At each ol the Inner angles will be a
similar lamp, resting upon a half pedestal ol
the same heigh' and deslgQ as the outer pedes?
tals. From the east end of the terrace a Alght
of granite steps will rise to the Aoor of
the portico. This terrace will give the en?
trance to the building an appearance very
similar to that of the Treasury building at
Washington. The work upon tbe terrace bas
been already commenced in the excavations
for the base of the arches supporting the Aoor,
and the driving of the piles necessary to
secure a Arm foundation. Between the front
ol the terrace and the wooden ienc : now
standing on East Bay will be an unoccupied
space eighteen feet wide, wblcb will be added
Into the sidewalk of the street, which is to be
par. d with smooth Aag stones, and will make
a spacious promenade, nearly forty feet wide,
extending along the entire west front of the
Customhouse grounds. The Market street
sidewalk will remain at Its presen t width, ten
feet. The present wooden fence will be pulled
down and replaced by a highly ornamental
ron fence, with spherical, spear headed railB.
The fence will rest upon a foundation of stone
masonry, and will be divided off into sections
nine feet long by a series ol granite posts, six
and a half feet blgh and two feet square.
The grounds on the east or water front of
tbe building will be evenly graded In a gentle
Inclination to tbe water's edge, from where
two long piers will run Into the stream, and a
handsome boat house ls to be built at the
head of the dock formed by these two piers.
The work on the eastern portico ol tbe
building ls BO fur advaaced that that feature
ot the building ls now ia something like defi?
nite shape. The columns have been put up,
and the entablature and the pediment are
now approaching completion.' This portico
will be In all respects like the western one,
except that lt will have no terrace before lt,
but will terminate in a long, unbroken flight
of steps.
The north and south sides of the building
are finished, with the exception of the putting
on of the fillet or crowning coarse of the
cornice. The rool of tbe building will be
pitched in form, consisting ot an iron frame
of rafters and purlins eight inches square,
covered with elghteea by twenty-four Inch
blue slate, so that lt will be perfectly fire?
proof. The roo! has been contracted for by
Henvelman A Haven, architectural Iron
workers of New York City, at a cost of a little
more than $10,000. The centre of the root
will be surmounted by a large Iron dome, the
design of which has not yet been determined.
