The People ItecoTerlnr From Their
Fright and Pre parlnf to Be
Bnme Bnoloesi.
THE 0,1'iKE.
The Most AUrmlig Feature i,t the
Present Condition of
Chabuston, 8. C, September 3.
There ia no special change in the Bit
nation this morning, bat as there were
only two trhotks, and very light ones,
during the night there ia a little more
coDtli'Hnce than yesterday. The eym-
futbtt c rrtlcles in newspapers and of
ers cf aid from different quarters ar
a great encouragement to the stricken
people if Charleston. The most argent
need now ii for the-early repair of the
injured t ui dinps, to aa to make tbom
hal.iUble. High winds and heavy
rain would bring many shattered
buildirgs 10 tbe ground and injure the
bnndredH of residences which have
defective roofs. It would be of great
eervice if a corps f government en
gineers could be font here at once to
ex imine hous e id other Imildines
and determine which of them can be
rafely occupied or allowed ti stand.
The lo al architects have their hands
more than full. The Pnsiden; bfs
autroriaed the Sacre'ary of War to
' tend here 100 tento.but mire than that
nnmbfrare meied. It is reported
thai there was a severe shock a', bum
merviile this morning, but the repiit
is not yet autbentiratsd. Many rep
resentatives of leading joii'no's are
here to write up end phonograph ttie
' city.
Rudely Irop-ovlrvd tente, construct
ed principally of bed clothitgr, are to
1)9 teen everywhere. Few pwrtotis
have as yet slept ictlo i", and the
houses are deserted, as if p'ngae
a'ricktn. Thonsands cave slept with
.nothing but the canopy of beaven
above them. Aft r the parks and
equal es wete filled last night, the In
habitant mspent'el overcoats, bed
quilts, ttc , frain fences over the side
walks, and thus passed ths night.
Many enjoyt d repose aoder open um
brella, the bandies of which weie
stuck ia tbe ground. Tbe more aris
tocratic people camped in t'-elr own
yaida. The colorei peop'e say they
will not return to their homei until at
least another night baa pamed, and
they may be s?ea tsking their coffee
ana eating their dry bread betid tbe
plaoa where they slept. On the whole,
however, it may b said that ennfl
dence ia rtturaing, and should there
not be a revis'tttion of tbe earth
quake, Charleston will bs in ber nsual
bustle of business wltbia forty-eikht
hour, although inconveoience and
delay will bs experienced for months
to cjme.
Tbia morning ths Newt and Courier
announces ia double leaded bead
lines that Charleston Is ready for busi
, ness, despite the eaitbqnake and its
rsvigts; that "the warehouse! give
ample accoiuniodatoiiH, the warves
are in excellent ciindition, ti e coin
presses are fully np to their w.n It.'aml
the merchants anl factors tioduntrd
by misfortune, have girded up their
loins anew for the brittle of om
merclal life." Cootlnuiig, it cays:
"Charleston, we say, is as wo'l able as
ever to transact any business that can
be obtained, and is as ready as ever
to give customer! from every part of
the country the commercial facilities
they require, and the attention and
good faith tbey have a right to expect.
Let it not be imagined for a moment
that Charleston ia sitting in her ashes
bewailing tbe loss of millions. Tbe full
conscionsner s cf tbe less is here. It is
nndeutood fal.y that far more than ths
earnings of a twelve moctli are swept
away ia loss than a minute. 1UH for
ail this, and because of this Charleston
is only the more determined to main
la'n the commercial position it has
won, and U foitunatoly so situated ss
ti ba able a well as ready to deal
successfully with eveiy department of
trade and every branch of builness."
An appeal is made to the C.ty Coun
cil for monetary assistance in the form
of an appropriation, bat tbe Newt and
Courier admonishes those who extend
aid to confine themselves in doing so
ti people in circumstances) or condi
tions rendering them unab'e now to
help tberxs'lves. Veiy little has been
accomplished np to this writing to re
lieve the city of its appearance of des
olation. sctNis or BUI.
Aa the eye takes in the length of a
street it ia met by heaps of debris of
eve y pcsiiblo dtscilption bricks,
s'one, plastering1, lath, shingles, lum
ber, and household and ollice furnl
t aie. and all kinds of building mate
rial in a ma;a. Whole fronts or sides
of buildings have ialla out, leaving
the furoiahlngs In some Instances in

posed to view. The pic urt s and mir
rots n-e on the walla, and tbe chairs
remain as they were left by the fleeing
iamily. The bads are unt inched, the
gat turned on, and the view of the
a tore room ia as it was when the first
shock came. Evidently the owner has
not ga'ned courage to watunt bis re
of tbe preeent condition of affair rests
ia tbe snaky conoTion oi tbe botld
Inn. iMne-tenths oi the urick atrac

and threaten to tumble. The'Chlni'

made a tour of that pottion of the citv
most diaarously damrged, slates that
the s roc urea damage! are tnottly

tingle sabstaot al building wis seen
which had snffoed materially from

have elapsed and confidence ssll
have been fully restored most of the
shjattsnd buildings will not b en

moe dieaa'rous than all of those
which have already leen eiperif n;ed,
and tbe buildings could easily be

The first pa-ssngers coming north
from Charlts'cn, S. C, ar ived this
morning. Tbey were unable to leave
Cbarlestin until yeetsrday morning on
account of tbe interruption in nilrc ad
ommuniiatioD. Thomas H. Toteon,
of Ba t' more, one of tbe pa sengers,
gave a repor.er sn account of his ex
perience. '
"I waa (tipping at tbe Charlestan
Hotel," he said. "I was In my room,
which was on tbe third floor. "When
I lit my tai I beard noise and sup
posed I had bioken tomethine, but
could find nothing broken, I wentti
place my hat on a bureau, and just
than the shock cam. I would have
fallen if I had not thrown my hands
out and clung to the wludow. It
seemed s though the hotel was lifted
cp aud swung backward and forwerd
a distance of fifteen or twenty inches
at each vibration. At the first shock
the lights in the house all went out.
Then the plasterlug bepan to full. It
lusnea oa my mioa that I soouia en
deavor to get ont of the honse, and I
got out into tbe corridor and groped
my way, lu utter darkness.
Other people in the hou'e weie
likewise groping tbiir way out
The air was tilled with p'aetor
duet. All around was a t .nr. We r tar
ing and moaning eonnd, and the din
was hightenedbv tbe fulling of tim
bers. I found the front door
ot the bouBe closed, a fort

mlddlo ol tbe street. 1 bore 1 rmu n-
ed, terror stricken. Two shocks came
after I reached the middle of the street,
mint one se von tnic ires after the
first, and another more violent nine
minutes later, the three shocks
occurring within sixteen minutes.
I remained In front of the hotel until
1 o clock. I was so unnerved that I
could scarcely stand. As it became
quieter I went on tbett-eet to an open
Bpace and rema'ced there until 3
o clock, Thon we bad another slight
shock. At 3 o clock I went to the bU
Ury park and fitind it crowd
ed, several thousands rf ' ter
tilled people caving assembled
tbere. There I remained dnring th
remainder of tbe night. At 6 o'clock
another taint shock was felt. At day
light I. like others, felt mote encour
aged, and I moved around to tee what
destruction had been doue. I found
at the bat' cry front some of the most
rostly booses in the city cracked from
the ground to the ton. and rome por
tions of the buildings were destroyed
completely. All of tbe Cnariestoa
residences are built with porches in
t ont, many having substantial pillar,
sad thess porches were all thrown
down. There was not a house in
Charleston that had i a chimney
standing. The terror among the peo
ple during the night was in,tenas.
Tbey riiBhed throtisu the streets lrai
ticiliy. calling on Gad to have mercy
on them. People who, perhaps, never
prayed before thn pr.yed aloud.
Then to this was added tha ahrleki ot
the woanded and the lamenatIona of
thoee who had loet friends. Here and
tbere par. Us with lights were looking
through ths rains for missing people.
Tbe greatest horror and confusion
regoid everywhere. Tha people,
whn tbe shock came. ran. men,
women and children, out into the
streets ia thi ir night clotLlng. and r
ma ned in that way during the night,
noddled together ia the street. None
wt nld venture bick into tbe house.."

too low, and that three-fourtis ot ths
city woo d have to be rebuilt. The
ptople killed wers killed while letv
ingthtir houses by the fillirg debris
All who could leave t"e city were
leaving ytwdv. Mr. P. T. Bonnell
left Charleston yesterday on tbe lint
outward train. There were five care
pa:ked with refugees For the firs
two mi oi the train moved very slow
ly. Toe rails were twicted. As the
train went along the people in the rar
noticed another shock. This further
twitted tbe rails. It was, however,
possible to proceed s'owly. The pen
pis are at work digging in tha rains
plated it will be Impoea b e to tell or
even guars any way a.cnrate'y at tbe
inmbr of caaualtiea.
Have the reports of tbe disaster
been exaggerated 7"
"Not a hit ol It, It won d be im
possible to pat into words any dejerip-
tion of tbe disaster and its effects. My
wife and I spent two nights on the
commons, ss did thousands ot other
people. To dep:ct the dreadful scene
would ba beyend any man's power.
There is not one house in ton tbat will
n t have to be tebnilt- There wes a
peculiar difference in the maicer fn

"ies; it became torritr'y not bdoiu
weoty minutes before the sock. It
was a peculiar scorching neat that I
never feit before. I saw people on
tbe streets taking off their coa's and
vests as they walked aloug. Then
there was a rambling no bp. It was
like a train of cars pursing under a
tunnel on the toD of wh ch one Btend".
This rumbling and toar was followed
by the shocks and the terrible sway-

of walls. On Wednesday all you could

To tha Editors ol Tha Appeal i
The pecnl ar and deep impression
experienced by the writer of t'ie Newt
and Cwtv.t la similar to that which Is
always experienced by all who e first
experience of an earthquake Is given,
and is accoanted for by Humboldt in
h:s Comot, pgeB 213-10, vnlnmn 1,
in this way. It is not the r suit of a
recollection of those fearful pictures of
devastation preent-d to oar i negina
tinn by the historical narratives of
the as', but is rather due to the sad
den revelation of the delosive nature
of the inherent faitb, by which we bad
clung to a belief in the immobility ol
the solid parts cf te earth. We are
axoBtomoi from early childhoid to
draw a csntrast between the mobility
of water and the immohilitv of the
s il npon which we tiesd. We may
flee from tbe eruption ri a volcano, or
a falling house, etc., bat wherever we
go daring an eartbquaie mat soot is
tbe f jcos of destruction. This feeling
is confirmed by the evidence of oor
sense. Animals are similarly
nffec'ed, teptcially dogs and
swine, and tbe crocodiles ot the
Orinoco leave tbe river and nee to the
forests. Tbe moat destructive earth
quakes are moa'ly cotifined to near
tne seacoast, wither they arise ironr
the wear and tear of the action of the
ocean npon the cruet ol the earth a'
or near tbe intersection of the land
and water, causing the crust cf the
euHb to become thinner a', that point,
and tnereby u-etroyirg i he equi
librium. I am unab'e to say. Tue prot
est number of lives that have ever been
loet was in A. D. 620, at Antioch. dur
ing the Feaet of the Ascension, when
it ib estimated by uinbons that aso.ooo
persons perished, in la.-i, tn Uaia-
bria, whan .the city of Meseina, in
Siciiy, was destroyed, 100,000 Uvea
were lost. J'.arthouikes are not only

(God's Wall), after tho earthquake of
Catch, in 1819, eBt of the del' a of the
Indus, which nptiaval was ebou', II
my memory serves me correctly, four
feet and remains to this diy ; and
in Chili in 1822, when the
country botween the Andes and
the const was elevated from
two t leaven feet and the bottom of
tbe fa ilk ocean for hundreds of miles
was at tbe same time eleva'ed. The
area (land) raised has been estimated
at 100,000 square roller. In Java, in
1772, when Papandayang, then one of
the loftiest of tbe volcanoes of the
region, waa in action, an area rud
denly sunk, inoludingthe mountain, of
from fifteen miles long to six miles
