'Ihc massive poitlco of St. Michael's is wrenched from tlio body of the church ami the ciack In the main building extends to the founda tion. All ot the portico of Bishop North- nip's icsidonco 13 swept away. The Charleston - ton hotel loses thocollings and part of tlie coping. The Gorman aitillery hall is some what injmed. The wateiwoiks biitldlngand rcseivolr aio injmed. The Injury to St. Phillips' chinch Is almostundescrlbable. Sev- eial arches of the splro above the clock tower arc torn down and tlnown out. On Sullivan's Island the shock was severe , butcompai.xtively little Injmy was done. Xo lives weie lost. Many of the summei visit ors came to the citj this morning. Tlio last eaitluiuake shock was cxuerlenccd heie at 11:50 : hiht night , since which time there have been no vibrations. Tlio people nro just beginning to pick up courage to come out. Efforts ate being made to clear paths through the stieets for the passage ol ve hicles ana pedestiians , and the city onto more begins to show some signs of lite. 1'or two long dajs and nights of 1-orror , women and children have been camplngout in paiks and smiaies. The earthquake swept ovet the city like a besom of destruction. It Is Impossible to give any correct estimate of the loss of life and pioperty. 1'or two days and nights tlio people have done nothing but huddle In the Kqiiaie. Small detached relief parties aie going out to dig out the dead 11om the debris or succor the wounded. The llrst systematic effort to get at the facts Is now beini } made. The list of dead recog- nl/ed and reported this morning ' foots up to sixteen and the search has only commenced. The list of wounded will do Into the hundreds. About sevoi-clzhts of the houses ot public buildings aio either clam- nged or wrecked. The waves from 0:5.Tues : ' day night have been coming every live or six hours. There has been none now for tvvclvo hours and htiong hopes aio enleitiilned that the honor Is about over. A special to the News and Courier from points in .South Carolina , ranging from the c\tiemo northwest to the sea coast , repoits hcvciat shocks of caitluiuako , with moioor less dnmago to proprrty. though without loss of life so far as Is known. In Gunge- burg the people became so nlauned that many moved to Columbia. As the details of tlio calamity In tills cltv are gathered , Its effects becomn more and inoroalaimlng. It is feared also , that much distress will pievall , as by far tun laigcr part of those whoso pionoity has been wiecked or seriously damaged belong to thopooior classes. 'Ihe people are as cheer ful as possible under the terrible clienmstaniTH , and are living to lestoro oidei out of chaos. The nggicgato loss is ex pected to reach tlueo millions. The vvlmues , w alehouses and business facilities of the cltv generally aio unallVcted by the catastrophe , and Chirlcston Is ready as over foi the tuns- action of business. ' 1 ho ofllclal total of deaths Is thlity-tvvo , and the wounded will probably number 100. Business Is still suspended , the whole atten tion of the people being given to providing lor the homottss. Brlcklajerfi have advanced their rates to BX ! dollais nei day. The city council will piobably meet to moiiowtopiovldemeasures lor relieving the poor. KxpiVKSlons ot grati tude are henrd on all sides for the assistance oflered to ChaileMon of which the sulterlng people will L-ladly avail themselves. Confi dence Is gradually returning , but much ap- pichonslon Ishtlll felt. The people are gradually takliu account of the details of the injury worked by the eaith- tuaUo , and the list or damage to propcity Is startling. A limited section In the south of the city Is n sample ot the whole. Standing at the postotllco and looking west , an almost Impassable roadway of debils meets the eve. The building ot the chamber of commerce Is badly damaged , a poitlon of the south and east walls having been thrown down by the v lolciiro of the shock , and the build ings of Walker , Kvans it BOL'SVV ell luv e also milfeied. while heavy granite slabs which foi iiied the parapet of the News and Courier building lie upon the sidewalk , leaving the Hate roof and a portion ot ! the nttlc floor ex posed. Most of the building * , on the street nro more or less damaged , but the violence of the eattluiuako Is most perceptible at the his- tone Intersection of Broad and Meeting Etloots , The police station Is almost a com plete w reck. Tlio uppei edge of the w all has boon torn down and that of the north wall lias fallen on the loof of the poich , carrying It awuy and leaving only the large fluted pillars standPL' ! . Tlio city hall nppaienlly e-scaped serious damage , but Is badly cracked on the vast wall , and the court house building Is badly damaged , the walls being cnicked in several places and poitlons of ( lie roof and tables being thiovvn down. Tlio fireproof building seems to stand as a reck. The gables of the north and south yoicut-3 , however , uuuleol solid browu stone , have been thrown to the pavement below. 1 tils ajipears to be the onlv damage done to the building. The worst wieck In the local ity , however , Is St. Miclncl's church , which 'cms to bo doomed to destruction , j'lio steeple , the repairs on which had just bien completed , M'cni < Uo be Intact , but It Is out of pniiiib and is in moment vi > dauber of falling.

Strangely eiionuh some of these were in active operation , and constant shocks that were feltat Summerville sent the water out of these lissiires in jets to 'the height ot fiom fifteen to twenty feet. This was evidently the result of the cracks being Illleii with water and then the bides opening and closing b ) each suc ceeding shock. These appeaiances were of course suggestive ot still more violent erup tions , and there was constant dreid every- wheie that there would ho a general inunda tion caused by some extiaoulluary foiceof earthquake Near Ten Mile Hill a fatal accident oc- curied on Tuesday night. The down Col umbia train jumped the trick. Engineer Ouinsaiid riieman AinoUl , colored , were badly Injuicd by the tremendous leap vvhleli the tiain took In the daik under the unseen influence ol the shock that dis mantled the road. It is said that the earth suddenly gave way and that the engine hist plunged down a temporary declivity. It was then uiscd on top of A succeeding ter- restlal undulation , and having reached the top of the wave a smidcn swerving of the force to the light and left hulled the Ill-fated train down the embankment. The tialn at the time of the earthquake was i mining at the usual speed , and when about a mile south ol Jedlmrg it encounteied the teuible cxpcii- ence. It was fielishtcd with hundieds of oxcmslonists retuining from the mountains. 'II ley were sill gavand happj , laughing and talking , when all of a sudden , in ( no lan guage of ono of lite excuiolonists , the tialn appeared to have left the track ami was going up , up , up , into the air. This was the ilsing wave. Suddenly U descended , and as it lapldlv fell it Hung the llrst coxch violently over to the east , the heads of the car apparentlv leaning over at an angle of foity-tivo degrees. Then the tiain righted and was hurled , as with the roai ot artillery , over to the west , and finally subsided on the truck' and took a nunine downwaul. evidently on the descending wave. The engineer nut down the brakes tight , but so great was the original and added momentum that the train leaped ahead. It is said on trustworthv authoilty thnt the tram net u illy galloped along the track , the Iront and rear tiucks of the coaches rising and falling alternately. The utmost contusion prevailed. Women and childien shrieked with ills- may and the bravest hearts quailed In momcntaiy expectation of a more teirlble catastrophe.

The Bulgarian Situation nml the Posi tion oT the Powers. CoMSTANii.voi'LC , Sept. 1. [ New York Herald Cable Special to the Bi.i , . ] I have just Inteiv lowed a representative of one of iireat powers , who is much interested in the solution of the Bulgarian question. He con siders the situation to be much improved , owing to the leturn of the prince and the firm attitude of the Bulgarians. Whelhci Kubsla lias given special assuiances to the sultan or not ho linds the porte to-day mani festing much less anxiety. The pievalent opinion among tlie ministers is that rni : cnisis vvir.i , END without anj ovei tact on the part of llussla end.ingcilng European peace. Ho thinks that Hussla.scelng the gicatlailureof its coup d'etat in ordoi to give foice to the same , will not oppose the prince's icsumptlon of povvei for tlie piesi nt. tearing to force the storm ot Indignation that an attempt to co- cico Bulgaria would liso throughout Kuiope. The liiltisli government is stionglj supportIng - Ing the prince , anil I have ground for believ ing that the queen's strong sympathy with the Battenberg family may lead to a more than moral support , if necessary for the maintenance of the prince's position. THE I1IUTISII AMIIASSA.DOU endeavored unsuccessfully to persuade the poite to adopt an Independent action , basing hei pollcv upon Europe's u'cognitlon of her nzoialn ty , but the sultan's advises still see safely only In clinging to that worn out snppoit. the concert of the gieat povveis. The sultan's dccado of Itusia ; over weighs all othei consideration. Till : 01 IIVIVX AMIIASSADOIt , here , at first oxpiessed views so adverse to the re-lnstatcmcnt of the prince that the be lief has been entertained in certain quartets that the pilnco was only allowed to return in order to retho honorably later on , after hav ing chastened the author of the coup d'etat. The prevalent belle ! at llrst among the ( ! er- man olllclals was that BIstnaick has agreed to saciiflco the pilnco for the maintenance of peace , and that the same consldeiatlons still held good. But any such method emplojed would hav o nousr.n srcii I.VIMOXATION' as to render necCssaiy appointment In the execution of such an Idea. The future , how ever , belongs to the prlnco and Dulgailans , unless he retires of his own free will 01 bv the adverse vote of a general assembly 10- quiring his abdication. It would seem that Kiiasia will lemain a strictly Inactive specta tor , unless coeiced Into action by ono or othei of the gieat powers. I give these views as coming tiom an Impoitant souice.
