No. 2 hunted aimlessly for awhile,

Mr. John Heins was over this week

exhibition in one of the colored
churches last Tuesday night, and
that be had just thrown upon the
canvas a representation of tho a9sas
sination of Garlield when the shock
came. The operator jumped out of
tlie window and the crowd went out
of the door. As soon as the first
shock was over an old negro woman
announced that it was a visitation
“from do I.ord for usin’ de church
house for a show,” and suggested
that summary vengeance be admin
istered upon tlie wicked young man
who Imd dared to do such an unhal
lowed thing. The crowd looked nt
it in the same light, and the poor
fellow sought refuge in flight, and
only saved himself by reaching tho
swamp before his pursuers overtook
him, who returned to tbe church and
held divine service by way of propi
tiation for the great sin.

Water Coatraet Increased — .More Hydrant*.
Council, at its last meeting,
changed its contract with the water
company from twenty-five to fifty hy
drants, thus doubling the service.—
The proi*osition made was to ftlrnish
fourteen more, but the Council pre
ferred to take twenty-five additional,
thereby increasing the total to fifty,
which, according to tbe original con
tract, would change the cost of each
hydrant from $60 to $30. The four
teen additional hydrants would have
cost $840, whereas the twenty-five
would cost only $1,000 more than the
first twenty-five. This will make a
j large increase of our fire protection.
On Tuesday night at 9:30 it came.
With no warning whatever, a low
rumbiing noise was heard, and the
next instant a convulsive quiver ran
through the earth, which was com
municated to the buildings.' and ev-
cry house rocked and trembled as
though mounted on rollers, and wns
just preparing to move.
The effect upon the people can
better be imagined than described.—
A great and impulsive fear fell upon
everyone, and into the streets they
rushed, many screaming and crying,
and parents with children in their
arms or following in terror. This
shock lasted probably a half minute,
but the effects, had scarcely’ died
away before another came, slightly
less violent, shortly followed by a
third, fourth and fifth, each decreas
ing in force. During the night three
other well defined shocks wero felt,
while at eight the following morning
and several times during the day
many claim to have felt shocks more
or less pronounced. Near midnight
of the following night two very per
ceptible tremors were experienced —
The exact time of the shocks of
Tuesday night was as follows: 9.90,
9.40, 9.45. 10.00, 10.25, 12.15, 12.25,
As might be supposed, it was no
easy task to quiet one’s nerves suffi-
niently to allow sleep, and many a
couch brought no repose to its toss
ing occupant that night.
NO ACTUAL DAMAGE
Was done to property in tbe city or
surroundings of which we can learn,
with the exception of at the St. Si
mons light house, which is quite se
rious. A note from Mrs. Peckham,
wife and assistant of the keeper,
“The revolving machinery was
thrown out of gear, and the light ex
tinguished. One of tbe red flashes
was broken in more than a hundred
pieces, and many pieces wero broken
out of the lenses. A pitcher of water
was in the watch room, and tbe wa
ter was thrown out of the pitcher.—
Tlie tower fairly seemed to dance.
Tlie keeper was cool and ready to re
pair tho damage, but the poor assis
tant was so badly frightened that she
shook as badly as the tower.’
OVER THE COUNTRY.
The shock was felt more or less ev
erywhere cast of the' Mississippi. It
seemed to strike the coast from a
southeast direction, moving toward
the northeast. No damage is re
ported except at Charleston and vi
cinity, which seemed, to catch tho'
full force of the shock. But what a
tale of woe comes from there ! Tlie
shocks were terrific, and the city is
positively ruined. Buildings were
everywhere torn and cracked, ahd
whole blocks lie in ruins. More than
hundred persons were killed or
wounded by tbe falling buildings,
and vlie groans of the wounded and
shrieks of tbe terror-stricken min
gled with the horrid thunder of de
struction. Fires everywhere broke
out train lamps and other causes,
and were but poorly fought. . So ter
rible was'the anguish of everyone
that the tires were little noticed.
During the entire night the shocks
continued, and with each new one
the people expected their end to
come. Every available open space
was crowded w>th people in mortal
terror. During tlie day and night
following the reign of terror con
tinued, and the sutferings of the peo
ple were fearful to think of. It is es
timated that fully three-fourths of
tbe houses of tile city will have to be
rebuilt before they can be inhabited.
Summerville, tweny-two miles from
Charleston, shared about the same
fate, and is a perfect wreck,
van’s island was much shaken, but
no serious damage or loss of life oc
curred. The ground in many places
in the demolished district is cracked
open, and water, mud and sulphur
ous gas issue therefrom. The dam
age in Charleston is roughly esti
mated at from live to eight million
