Charleston, S. C, Sept. 3. There is
no special change in the situation this
morning, but as there were only two
shocks, and very light ones, during the
night, there is a little more confidence than
yesterday. Sympathetic articles in news
papers and oilers of aid from different
quarters aie great encouragement to the
stricken people of Charleston. The most
urgent need now is for the early repair of
injured buildings to make them habitable.
High winds and heavy rains would bring
many buildings to the ground and injure
hundreds of dwellings which have defect
ive roofs.
It would be of great service if a corps of
government engineers could be sent here at
once to examine dwelling houses and other
buildings and determine which of them can
be safely occupied or allowed to stand. Lo
cal architects have their hands more than
The president has authorized the secre
tary of war to send here one hundred
tents, but more are needed. It is reported
there were several shocks at Somrcerville
this morninsr but the report is not vet
authenticated. Many representatives of
leading journals are here to write up and
photograph the city.
The situation is still deplorable. Rudely
improvised tents, constructed principally
of bed clothing, are seen everywhere, But
lew persons have yet slept indoors and
houses are deserted as if plague .stricken.
Thousands have slept with nothing but the
canopy of heaven above them. After the
parks and squares' were tilled lat night

enjoyed repose under open umbrellas, the
handles of which were stuck in the ground.
The more aristocratic people camped in
their own yards. The colored people say
they will not return to their homes till at
least another night has passed, and may be
seen taking their coffee aud eating their
dry bread beside the place where they
On the whole, however, it may be said
confidence is returning, and should there
not be a revisitation of earthquake Charles
ton will be in her usual bustle of business
within forty-eight hours, although incon
venience and delay will be felt for months.
Very little has been accomplished up to
this time to relieve the city of its appear
ance of desolation. As the eye takes in
the length of the street it is met by heaps
of debris of every possible description:
bricks, stone, plastering, lath, shingles,
lumber and household ami office furniture
and all kinds of building material in a
mass. Whole fronts or side.4 of buildings
in some instances intact.
A two-story brick building on State street
between Broad and Chambers presents an
interesting appearance of this description:
the lower lloor is used for merchandise,
the upper floor as a residence. The whole
front fell out leaving the interior exposed
to view. The pictures and mirrors
are on the walls and remain as the' were
left by the fleeing family. The beds are
untouched, the gas turned on and the view
of the store roni is as when the first shock
came. Evidently the owner has not gained
courage to warrant his return.
The most alarming feature of the present
condition f affairs rests in the shaky con
dition of the buildings. Nine-tenths of the
brick structures are cracked through aud
through and threaten to tumble. Chim
nejTs that have not actually fallen arc badly
careened and would fall if touched.
Until some time shall have elapsed and j
confidence shall have been fully restored,
most of the shattered buildings will not be
entered, as a shock at this time would be
more disastrous than all of those already
experienced, and the building could be
easily shaken to atoms. An examination
of the wrecked structures shows them to
have all been frail. The Charleston and
and oue or two other leading hotels have
begun to receive guests, although but a
small portion of other houses are in a con
dition to be occupied.
Inquiries continue to pour in from
friends of Charlcstonians in different parts
of the country concerning the loss of life

on account of the interruption m railroad
communication. Thomas Folscn of Balti
more gave a rej)ortcr an account of his ex
periences: I was stopped at the Charleston hotel, he
said, and I was in my joom which was on
the third lloor. When I lit my sras I heard
a noise and supposed I had broken some
thing, but could find nothing broken. I
went to place my hat on the "bureau and
just then the shock came. I would have
fallen if I had thrown my hands out and
clung to the window. It seemed as thomrh
the libtel was lifted up and swaying back
wards a distance of fifteen or "twenty
inches at each vibration. At the tirt shock,
the lights in the house all went out: thin
the plastering began to fall. I got
into the coridor and groped my
way in, utter darknes amid
falling nlaster. Other neonle in the house
I wre likewise groping their way out. All
arouna was a terrible rcannir and mosaia?
sound and the din was heightened by fall-
ing timbers. I found the front door of the-j
house closed, a fortunate thinir for me. as
it sa ed my life. It took a moment to trad
the knob and as I was looting for it tons
of brick fell down from the upper part of
the house in front of the door. I ran out
through the heaps of fallen bricks and fell
twice in getting to the middle of the street.
There was not a house in Charleston that
had its chimneys standing."
.Mr. Folson said that he thought the pub
lished estimate of damage was too low and
that three-fourths of the city would have
to be rebuilt. The people killed were
killed while leaving their houses by the
falling debris. All who could leave the
city were leaving yesterday.
Mr. P. T. Bonnel left Charleston yester
day on the first outward train. There were
five cars packed with refugees. For the
first two miles the train moved very slowly;
the rails were twisted. As the train went
along the people in the car noticed another
shock. This further twisted the rails. It
was, however, possible to proceed slowly.

Not a bit of it; it would be impossible to

the Chronicle from Beaufort says that near
the Cossiwa mines there is a crack in the
earth 200 feet long and six inches wide. On

several large openings were made and piles
ot mud and sau.l were forced up.

British squadron is on its way as usual at
this time of the year to these" waters. For
merly the squadron summered in the West
Indies, but danger from yellow fever led to
the custom of making the summer rendez

our own vessels. If such is the feet it is
believed to have no international signifi

ment and Great Britain respecting the
three mile limit, whether from headland to

question are progressing slowly, to be sure,
but with entire cordiality. They hare been

New York, Sept. 3, 10:30 p. m. Word
has just been received that a heavy shock
of earthquake has occured at Charleston.
All wires are lost.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 3. At about
11 o'clock tonight another shock of earth
quake was felt all along the southern At
lantic coast. It was not attended by any
damage so far as can be learned, but itwas
strong enough to cause a stampede from
the instruments of the telegraph operators
in Charleston, Augusta and Columbia, and
perhaps other places. They soon returned,
however, and resumed business. The
shake was felt from Jacksonville to Wash
ington. It was perceptible in Washington,
but not so strongly as on Tuesday night.
Charleston,' S. C, Sept. 3. At one
minute to 11 o'clock to-night another ter
rific shock passed over the city. Conster
nation again prevails. People camping in
the public squares are singing and praying.
Raleigh, N. C, Sept. 3. At 11:02 to
night a well defined shock of earthquake
was felt here. It was preceded by a light
rumbling noise. The oscillation of build
ings was marked on the upper floors.
Augusta, Ga., Sept. 3. At 10:40 an
other shock was distinctly felt and the
streets are again filled with people.
Immediately after the first shocks there
was an exhibition of joy, and voices of
congratulation were heard on every side
and all mingled with words of thanksgiv
ing to the Divine Providence. People
clung to each other like brothers aud sis
ters. Tiiere were no strangers there. They
all knew each other as part aud parcel of a
community that has escaped a terrible fate.
Some with tears of repentance and joy in
their eyes embraced each other. Women
fell on each others necks and with hearts
too full to speak rocked to and fro in the
happy embrace, devotely thanking God in
silence for His blessing in the dreadful
Not so with the trembling and demoral
ized colored people. After the hand of
Providence had been apparently removed
they began to prophesy and recall all they
knew in their confused way of bible scenes
and bible history.
"It's the night of Sodom and Gomorrah,"
shouted one in a frenzy of apparent de
light." "The city of St. Michael is down
to the ground," 3-elled another. "I told
you so," cried a third. "Ah, how about
my wife's dream now," said a fourtlL
"Look for the rock of Horeb to split,"
said another, "Pray, my white people;
why don't you pray?" said another.
For five minutes in the fearful excitement
the colored people never ceased to utttr
what might ie considered a torrent of
prophetic interpretations and unintelligible
prayers. In the dismal gloom some lady
crietout: "Get to the green! Get to the
green!" aud almost in the twinkling the
colored people made a rush for that haven
of safety. It seemed as if all Charleston
were alrcadj- there. Women hurried along
dragging their little children in all kind of
night apparel j
It was only, however, when the older class j
of colored people arrived that a characteristic !
scene took place. They ran about in tlie
crowd with cries of down on your face;
uown on your Knees, miserable sinners;
pray to God, my sister, brother; pruy,pray,
pray; don't I tell jou the night is come?"
Prayer meetings were organized and the
singing and screaming w tre kept up all
night. The watchword was passed around
"the kittle is over, but the soldiers must
not rest," and this order was carried out.
On Marion Square the sights and scenes
baffled description. The colored people
were unrestrained and committed all man
ner of riotous and frenzied excesses. A
report of their actions as they took place
would, perhaps, be considered blasphe
mous. The following additional easaulties are
Miss Lucr Elliott, ankle fractured.

It was more severe than any save the first
one of Tuesday night, and people were
again thoroughly terrified. All buildings
were deserted and everybody will sleep in
the streets tonight.
Macon, Ga., Sept. 3. Another shock
was felt here at 10:03 tonight. It was dis
tinct and caused some little consternation
among the people, but no damage was done
to property.
Wilmington, N. C, Sept. 3. Another
distinct but not severe eaithquake shock

great excitement.

In some places in the upper part of the
city it was as severe as that of Tuesday

homes and rushing into the streets. Tlie
oscillation is said to have been very per

noise accompanied the shock.
