Earthquake at S~n Francisco. I
We copy from the Territorial Enterprise
the subjoined account of the earthquake at of
San Francisco on the 8th inst. Such a pl
phenomenon is comparatively rare in Cali
fornia; but in Venezuela, New Grenada,
Ecuador, Peru and Chili, the shocks are fre- es
quent and severe. The houses are built low,
to withstand the concussion without falling,
and the old pack-mules spread out their feet at
instinctively, at the first subterranean rum- M
"There was a light rain last night, and about day
light this morning quite a shower. The weather
in the forenoon was clear and warm, with a fresh 1
breeze. At precisely 12:45 P. x., the heaviest earth- 1
quake shock which was ever felt in San Francisco t
occurred. The motion was undulatory, from north
east to southwest, and everybody instantly rushed for
the streets. Five seconds later, another and far
heavier one occurred, and the uproar caused by fall
ing walls, glass coming down in showers on the side
walks, the frenzied stampede of thousands of.people,
horses running away, bells ringing, etc., was inde
scribable. Women fainted, men screamed, church
congregations piled over each other in the excite
ment to escape, and many people jumped from second
story windows, in some cases receiving severe inju
ries. A Chinaman in Stout's Alley was killed. The
chimney falling from the Lick House into the rear
of the building, crushed the kitchen and injured three
servants-none fatally. Three men were injured by I
falling bricks at Crowell's warehouse. One man
jumped from a window, went through the skylight
into the Metropolitan Market, and was badly injured.
Many similar incidents occurred. The congregation
in the Catholic Church on Vallejo street carried away
doors entirely in reaching the street, and several
women and children were injured, but none fatally.
The fire-wall of the New Orleans warehouse, on Davis
and California streets, six feet high and one hundred
and thirty-seven feet long, came down in a body. A
large section of the cornice and fire-wall of the
Exchange Building, opposite the Custom House,
fell. A new brick building on Third and Mission
streets will have to be pulled down entirely. The
rear wall of the store No. 115 California street, next
to George F. Bragg & Co., fell out. The front of
the brick building on the northwest corner of Sacra
mento and Battery streets, fell out. A one story
brick building on the corner of Market and Pine
streets was entirely destroyed. The City Hall walls
were cracked throughout, and the plastering thrown
down; the whole structure ought to come down for
safety. The City Hall Are bell rang from the shock.
Many hundreds of windows were broken into pieces
smaller than a man's hand, and thre-fourths of the
brick buildings on the made-ground part of the city
are more or less damaged. Many walls were thrown
out of line, so that door can't be opened or closed,
and it will probably be many days before the full
extent of damage is ascertained; as it now appears,
$250,000 would not repair damages. The injury
done through the los of conidence in the stability
of large brick and stone structures is incalculable.
Everybody is congratulating his neighbors on their
escape from death. In the present condition of the
walls another shock of equal violence would pros
trate at least one-third of the brick buildings in the
city. From nearly every store in the lower part of
r the city people are sweping out broken glas sand
fallen plastering. Clocks are stopped, water ja
upset, and in s e case people were thrown off their
feet by the violence of the shock. There is a lively
talk of the immediate repeal of the Fire Ordinace.
