general notes about the tremor
The I night of the 31st of August, 1886
will never be forgotten by any inhabitant of
Savannah, capable of remembering any
thing, end it will always appear in red let
ters in future histories of the city. On that
occasion the people here underwent an ex
perienee more terrible than probably has
ever been felt before by the oldest inhabitant,
and which it is most earnestly to be hoped
may never be again known. A little after
9 o’clock a tremor of the earth was felt,
accompanied by a rumbling noise, but it
caused no special excitement, as it soon
passed over, and the only comment thereon
was that it was something unusual.
But it was not many minutes
before all doubt and uncertainty as
to the cause of the disturbance was demon
strated in a most decided manner, for again
the rumbling noise was heard, accompanied
by such a shaking up of the whole city as
to strike terror to the hearts of the strongest
THE CITY WAS PANIC STRICKEN.
Men, women and children poured out in
one ceaseless stream of humanity from their
dwellings, hotels and lodging houses. The
streets were filled throughout their respec.
tive lengths and breadths with a crowd of
frightened human beings, intent only on
escaping from falling chimneys, flying
bricks, tottering walls and crashing tim
consternation reigned supreme,
and blanched cheeks and wild eyes told the
tale of terror more vividly and graphically
than words could portray. Windowsrattled
with appalling noise, brick walls and frame
houses swayed to and fro like ships at sea,
while timbers cracked as if struggling to
free themselves by violence from the fast
enings that held them together. For fully
a minute the shock lasted, although each
second setmed a minute to the scared and
frightened populace who, one and all,
with bated breath awaited anx
iously to see what would happen next.
especially Were paralyzed with fright and
terror, believing! with their usual supersti
tion, that the,judgement day and end of the
world had come. Many began praying and
uttering loud lamehtation, while others be
gan singing h'yinns, apd, making ready to
take their departune from earth to Heaven.
And to add to the unusual terror, and cause
confusion to be still worse confounded, after
the main great shock was over several
minor shocks were felt in quite rapid suc

tervals throughout the night, were kept up
until this morning. In consequence, Sa
vannah may be said to have been
AWAKE ALL NIGHT.
The street's and squares remained filled
with people afraid to enter their houses lest
they should be again driven out without a
moments notice, while those who were brave
enough to try and snatch a little rest, took
all precautions to insure easy and rapid
egress in case of danger. About
1 o’clock a slight shock was felt, which lasted

SCENES CN THE STREETS THIS MORNING.
All this morning the unwelcome visitor
was the subject of universal conversation.
The common/ salutation was, “Were you
frightened?” Lt “Did you suffer any dam
age?” while men gathered in groups ■ to re

they had pafeed through on this menSura-,
ble occasion. (Report of damage done win,”

from mouth to mouth, while anxious in
quiries were made between friends as to the
possible injury sustained. Every thing was
lost sight of but the one, and
SPECULATIONS AS TO A PROBABLE RFTURN
ofthe dread visitor were universal. All such,
however, are of course useless. Earthquakes
are subject to no known laws. They come
unheralded and without warning, and no
man living can tell beforehand whether or
not they will return. They are most
generally caused by volcanic eruptions, and
those localities in the neighborhood of
volcanoes are always more or less subjected
to them. But in this part of the world,
miles away from mountains, and hundreds
of miles away from anything approaching
a volcano, they are of the rarest occurrence,
and when one such as that of last night is
felt, it is an indication that some terrible
convulsion of nature is in progress, the
particulars of which may be looked for with
confidence in a very short time. Whatever
is the cause, it is needless to say that should
it ever become known, it will excite the
most absorbing interest.
THE EXCITEMENT TO-DAY.
The excitement along the streets this
morning was at fever heat. People talk of
nothing but the earthquake. At an early
hour the telegraph and newspaper offices
were besieged with anxious ones and the
question of the streets was “Any news from
Charleston?” The telegraphic lines were
out of order, and there was great difficulty
experienced in getting anyjnews.
At the First African Baptist Church ser
vices were being held, and at the first shock
the lights went out and the terrible shock
ing of the building threw the congregation
into a panic, the terror stricken inmates
making a rush for the door. The minister
shcited to th? * ..ongrig a6n to restrain
themselves, but his voice was drowned in
the stampede. The church was very full
and in their frantic endeavors to reach the
door many were stamped and trampled
upon, and six women were badly injured.
When a Times reporter reached the scene,
the church was closed, but several of the
injured were lying on pillows placed under
them on the pavement, waiting for convey
ances to take them to their homes.
THE SCENE IN YAMACRAW.
Last night Yamacraw presented a terri
ble sight. At the first shock people ran out
of their houses into the street. Many ran
out in their night clothes, and refused to
go back. Children and women screamed,
while men looked on horror stricken, un
able to do any thing. Women were crying
for children who were lost in the rush to
get out of the houses, and the sight was one
to make the stoutest hearts quail. Among
these scenes a Times wended
his Way. Every group anxiously inquired
the news from up town as he approached
them. W’hen the TiMes man reached
West Broad street at 12 o’clock, all indica
tions looked as if the families would remain
in the streets all night, which we have
since learned they did.
There were about twenty young men
present in the Catholic Library Hall. As
the old building began to shake the mem
bers stopped all their different occupations
and were perfectly bewildered. One of the
party cried “earthquake” and all of them
rushed pell mell for the door. A certain
bank clerk in his fright and consternation
left his hat, coat and cuffs in the hall and
carried a billiard cue with him in his
flight. In his haste the cue became fasten
ed across the narrow passageway and the
holder was too weak to move it. It was not
until the cries and threats of the nine or
ten men behind awakened him to his senses
that he was able to move the cue. He says
to-day that he was so badly frightened he
didn’t what he was doing.
Parties from White Bluff this morning
report that the shock was very severely felt,
and the water greatly disturbed. There
was a big rise and fall of the river, with a
surging sound. The houses were rocked
and swayed by the vibrations. The colored
people were highly excited before the sen
sation of the first shock had abated, and an
old colored woman rushed to the church and
commenced ringing the bell. In a few
minutes all the negroes in the vicinity were
collected at the church and singing and
praying followed throughout the night.
There was no serious damage to property,
and no one was injured.
ISLE OF HOPE.
At the Isle of Hope there was no tidal
wave, but the buildings were terribly
shaken and their occupants badly frighten
ed. No damage resulted, however, except
that Major Barnard E. Bee had the the tops
of the two chimneys of his house shaken off.
Beyond that no other injury is reported.
The first shock was very severe, and was
experienced at 9:30 p. m., and others fol
lowed in this succession : second, 9:40; third,
9:45; fourth, 9:55; fifth, 12:37, a. m.; sixth,
12:40, a. m.; seventh, 4:25, a. m. All the
houses W re well shaken, and in several the
piasieiing was knocked down. No damage
is reported at Beaulien or Rose Dhu. |
THE CITY HOSPITAL.
The City Hospital is somewhat damaged.
The seams of the walls in wards Nos. 1 and
2 are cracked. Plastering fell in seven,,
places and bottles fell from their shelves in
the dispensarr. The wall up in the atlf*
is also cracked. This is the only damage
done. The patients behaved splendidly »‘l.
through the excitement, only the conva
lescents showing and signs of fright
All arrangements were made t,
remove the sick ones if
necessary. Several of the inmates slept in
their clothes. At the St. Joseph Hospital
the damage was quite slight —nothing ex
cept some plastering having fallen. The
sisters carried their patients out in the
square and remained with them all night,
not moving them back into the hospital
until this morning.
RELIEF TENDERED FROM S.'.VANNA H.
Immediately upon learning of the distress
in Charleston, the President and Directors |
of the Savannah Benevolent Association
sent a dispatch to Capt. F. W. Dawson, of
the News and Courier, asking if pecuniary
aid were needed. Prompt assistance will
be rendered by the Association.
