Over $300,000,000 Worth ol Property Destroyed. 300,000 People Houseless and Home less. New York, September 12. The Guid ing Star, from Aspinwall, brings to the Evening Telegram the following: On the 13th inst, a terrible earthquake vis ited the cities along the coast of Peru and Ecuador, whereby 32,000 lives were lost and property Talued at 6300,000,000 destroyed. A rumbling sound preceded the earthquake and the sea was terribly agitated and. flooded the land for a great distance. Arequisa, a city of 35,000 inhabitants, passed away, scarcely a vest ige being left. Only 4,000 lives were lost here. Avica, a town of 25,000 in habitants, was also destroyed, leaving not a house standing. Five hundred persons perished here. A tidal wave forty feet high rolled with a terrific roar on shore, carrying ships farther on land than was ever before known. " The Uni ted States stoe Bhip Fredonia- was cap sized and all on board lost The Fre donia had $1,800,000 worth of naval stores on board." The vessel was rolled over and smashed to atoms. The United States steamer Wateree was carried a half mile inland and left high and dry. Only one sailor was drowned. Owing to the great distance the vessel can never get afloat again. The Penman coverette America was al so carried ashore and thirty-three of her crew drowned. The American merchant man Rosa Rivcra,the English ship Chan cellor sod the French barque Edwards were a??o lst- Tne town8 of iqwiqwi Moque" a Lcrinaba and Pisaqna were all utterly destroyed. Over 600 persons perished' at Liuumc. American mer chants have lost very heavily and nearly all of them are totally ruined. The town of Figarro, San Fablo, Atuatagni and Imantad arc in ruins. Where Cota cachi formerly stood there is now a lake. The populations of thc above named towns are almost entirely destroyed. Puencho, Pueliaro and Cnchignaub are also Hestroj'ed. The dead are so numer ous that thc surviving inhabitants have been forced to fly from the stench of the putrefying bodies. Th Ghayaquil thc earthquake was felt, but no damage was done. ' '' ' Letters from Quito, dated the 19th, announce that the earthquakes continue at intervals of a few hours. 1 The President has issued a proclama tion to the people to come forward and help the' sufferers. . ; : ' " later. :' ' '.';,',;' J New York, Septemler 13. Letters from Lima, Peru, give additional details of the earthquake . and its effects. The earthquake commenced at half-past five on the 13th ol Augux extenfiing from J Bolivia to the southern ports of Chili, on the coast, and over one hundred miles inland. . The towns and cities men tioncd in the dispatches .of last night were literally ruined, iis all the buildings which were not destroyed were so badly damaged as to require demolition for Druclential reasons, ah me puonc edi fices in Avica were destroyed, including the custom house, which contained more than four million dollars' worth of goods, all of which are lost ''!-- 1 The loss of the Fredonia and landing of the Wateree are described as follows : They were both at anchor in the harbor of Avica near eacn otner. Alter tne first shock had occurred on land, which created a great consternation on both vessels, Dr. Dubois, Surgeon, and the Paymaster of the Fredonia took a boat and went on shore to inquire for the welfare of their friends and to offer the services of the ship. In a few moments after leaving the vessel a great upheav ing of the waters of the bay commenced, and the Fredonia parting her chains was dashed to pieces on a reef. Noth ing of the vessel was saved. Her olh-, ccrs and crew (twenty-seven) were lost; also Mrs. Dyer, wife of the Lieutenant commanding. , The Wateree was more securely; an chored but dragged anchors, anil the great tidal wave swept her 450 yards inland, about two miles north of the; ruined town. She now lies between two hillocks of eand, very slightly injured ( and it will be utterly impossible to extri cate her. Only one sailor was washed overboard and drowned. The Peruvian corvette America shared the same fate as the Wateree but lost three officers and thirty men. A letter from Avica, dated August 12.. says : 1 wo otner vessels, tne ung cnan cellor and the barque Edwards, are also high and dry, the former losing eight men. xne scene oeggara aescnption. Railroad rails, cars, machinery, gun-carriages, household furniture, barrels, dead animals and mutilated corpses are lying about in conftisioa The city numbered 7000 inhabitants and its multitudes now stand helplessly beggard on thc beach ; 300 lives were- lost A conflagration burned nearly all that 'was not demol ished by the earthquake, and a drunken rabble robbed and despoiled what re mained. The stench is sickening. At Lima there was not much damage VAVJXl iUljlVlA UUQ DUUVM AU-DVATl hSUly irmA 1f KrmnrK oVi-nlra 1nafal nTvrMlT- four minutes. - Admiral TurnerSrith the frigate Pow hatan, left Lima with full cargo of pro-1 visions and had arrived at Avica to suc cor titcAmericau seamen and inhabitants. J:The 'Kearsage had reached Avica, from Codumba, with provisions. Two French men-of-war also left lima to aid the inhabitants at Avica and other 'pla ces on the coast, who arc starving. American Minister Ilovey, at Lima, was energetically aiding to the extent of his power. The merchants and citizens of Lima are contributing by thousands of dollars to equip and load vessels with clothing, provisions, fcc and thc Gov eminent ;iB most energetically using till its means to alleviate distress. At tallao the sea burst over a line' of houses skirting the shore, at 10 o'clock at night on the 13th, completely gutting them of their contents. The panic was extreme. A fire broke out aud fifty- seven houses in the business portion of the city were destroyed. No lives were lost, " . 'The Chincha Islands felt thc earth quake and wave, but not seriously, as j et known. , The cities of Ida and Tisco also suf- lereu neavny, loity nouses being over thrown and twelve lives lost at thc for mer city. Nearly all the population of Callao fled to Lima, The port of Cha- 1 s completely covered by water. At iquau tne shock lasted over four min utes, after which the wave came aud de stroyed three-quarters of the place, with many liws and nearly all the provisions and condensing r clinery which sup plied the inhabitants with drinking wa ter. Provisions and water are bein6 sent them from Valparaiso. Over 600 people '.were drowned at Areqttippu. The earthquake commenc ed at five minutes past five in the even ing, and in five minutes nearly every house was leveled to the ground. Near, ly all the inmates of the prisons and hospitals perished in the destruction of those buildings. The shocks contin ued at intervals, nearly 100 having oc curred in three days. The city is one mass' of -complete ruin. The river changed to three colors, showing vol canic eruptions,, and Mount Misti was actively thrown out lava, smoke, and quantities of mud. The river emits a sulphurous odor, and rocks and earth arc constantly falling from the., moun tain crater. No one dares so where the city was. The people ''are living in tents on the banks of thc river Paucari pata. Hundreds of lives were lost by bema: crushed to death by the falling houses, when thc quake occurred. From Guayaquil, under date of Au gust 16, we have brief accounts of the earthquake in Ecuador. In the city of Guayaquil but little damage done. The towns of Ibarra, the capital of the prov ince of Iniabura, San Pablo, Atimtaqui, and Imantad are in ruins. A lake of water is now occupying the site of the town of Catncachi. The entire popu lation of those towns nd of Otanalo perished, amounting to nearly 30,000 souls. At Quito the earthquake com menced at 26 minutes to 1 A. M., Au gust 16, and continued at interv als of a few hours up., to latest dates. Eigh teen churches and public building and private buildings are already in ruins and the people were living in tents in the great squares. ; The towns adjoining Quito, Perucho, Pueltaro and Cacniquarizo have almost entirely disappeared, together with their inhabitants, the few left alive being obli ged to fly to escape the pestilence arising from the decomposing bodies.', - - Thq towns of Pinicbo and San Anto nio have also disappeared. : l . , . 'The number of deaths in the city of Uuito.is not known, but a large portion ot tne weaitny in Habitants naa uiea from pestilence or disaster. 11 A Valparaiso ""' letter , of August 17, saysr Advices were 'received from Tal cahnano which stated that at nine o'clock on the night of August 14, three earth quakes occurred. , The second caused an immense tidal wave, which swept away fully one-half of the town and rendered the other half almost nninhajv itable only four lives were lost, as ; the inhabitants fled to the hills. At Tome the same occurred, but being higher, little- damage was done. Cabija, ; the Mexillowes Islands, Pisagua and all the cities and towns, in fact, from Cape Francisco, in Ecuador, to ' the" Magellan Straits, suffered more or less from the terrible visitation.' Ui .. f It was thought at Quito that the vol cano, of Copaxj'was at work,' but noth ing definite is stated to" that effect. Where Avica once was not. even tree is left, The towns of! Moquega,, Gleau ges and Arequippa , were destroyed. Tacua, in thc same neighborhood, lost sixty houses and one huudred and fifty lives, mostly children, who were relum ing from school. The. town of Mejia was swept away, only twenty out of five hundred inhabitants escaping; ', ."; . The earth has opened in several places on the Plains or Pampas, and water has appeared.' ' In some places hot. water is vomiting from a new chasm."' All the habitations at Tito-were destroyed and twenty lives, lost Three vessels with their crews were also lost".
