New Yoke aug. 10.�?about 2 05 clock this afternoon the residents Thia City were startled by a severe Shock earthquake lasting about ten seconds. At this hour g p. A particulars have been received at the Western Union office Here showing it was Felt at the following Points the Atlantic Highlands near Sandy Hook Long Branch Philadelphia new Haven Boston Elizabeth Plainfield Spring Lake cottage City Martha s Vineyard and Portland me. At the last Point it was slight Leports were also received from Many the sub offices in new York. The reports As to the duration Are diverse but the average seems to be about ten seconds. The operator at Providence was vaguely questioned As to whether he had heard seen anything unusual and to promptly replied he had had his hand the steam pipe and it had trembled violently. He had been looking up and Down the Street to discover the heavy team which up to the time inquiry he had supposed was passing. The question made him suspect it was an earthquake. This suspicion was promptly confirmed by various people Rushing into the office and asking for any explanation. At 2 15 clock the Atlantic Highlands experienced a second Shock but less Volent than the first. At Philadelphia the scat old ing some the be v buildings going up the Corner sixth and Reed streets was feb Aken violently and some bricks the boards were shaken off and fell to the Street below. The severest Shock was reported from Seabright n. J., where the depot was shifted to one Side shaking up the contents Aud alarming the sole inmate. At 2 30 pm a m. An ineffectual Effort was made to raise the Cony Branch office which had been communication with the local office up to the time tie Shock. The operator had just had time to report the Shock together with the fact that the jars his Battery had been overturned when the wire gave out. At Hartford a bareheaded Man rushed frantically to the Telegraph office holding in his hand a newspaper which he had been Reading. He said he had been rocked violently and that the plastering the ceiling above him had been cracked and in some places had dropped off the floor. In Brooklyn the Street were alive with people who had come out to a certain the cause the rocking and to gossip about it. One Cool headed observer upon the first perceptible motion took out i i Stop watch and timed the vibration. He reported that Tho Shock began a nearly As could be determined at 2 06, 50 seconds that the first Shock lasted just ten second i and that in Quot quieting Down Quot As he described it it toot nearly fifty seconds More. Oil hand guesses As to its duration varied from five seconds to two minutes according to the amount the Erver s fright and his judgment the flight time. At Menlo Park and Trenton the Shock was timed at 2 05 p. M., while at the More southerly Points its orbit it was Felt at 2 10. Exaggerated reports came in from various Points. From Trenton it was reported that the water in the River was lashed into a foam. A passenger arriving from Ironton soon after however said the Story was absurd and that the water was a s Placid and Muddy As usual. The Telegraph manager at Coney Island promptly asked for particulars the explosion supposing that some Oil refinery powder dynamite factory bad blown up. A few minutes later the fact became no in there that the whole Island had been thoroughly shaken by vibrations and the guests and visitors were very greatly alarmed the fright in some cases amounting to a panic. Neither Cape May nor Atlantic City noticed any unusual motion and so far As the Early reports indicate Philadelphia was the Southern limit the Shock. At Cleveland the Shock was plainly but slightly Felt. At the Mam local Telegraph office the 100 people present Felt a serious movement the seventh Story but there was no electrical Phenomena connected with it and no electrical disturbance. The first impression which seemed to take Possession the inmates the houses in new York was As it the building was about fall and the people ran into the streets Only to discover their neighbors Rushing oat amazed like themselves and then As there was no evidences a catastrophe the people returned to their Homes realizing that there had been an earthquake. As a Rule the people remained in the front their houses a few minutes apparently trying to get at some solution at airs and watching the faces women and others. The women and children As they regained some degree Confidence returned to their houses while the men remained in groups in the streets discussing the occurrence so unexpected and so startling. An earthquake is a thing so unlocked for in this part the world that its cause and the history the most terrible ones became a topic Paramount interest. Above All the people were concerned in trying to find out from those they talked with whether a second and perhaps subsequent shocks were Likely to follow. At the Observatory the United states signal service the time the earthquake and its duration were noted by assistant observers r. Fleina can and merring who were at the time in the office about 200 feet above the Irvel the streets. The first intimation the earthquake was a slow rumbling South like the muttering Distant Thunder which was immediately followed by a Shock like that a violent explosion which caused the building to quiver although it did not shake perceptibly. The rattling continued about 8 seconds accompanied by the rumbling sound which gradually did away. The first Shock was Felt about eleven minutes past two. The effect the car was much More perceptible in houses Light Structure in Many instances it being reported that a clearly defined rocking movement was Felt and the dish j in pantries were shaken from the shelves. Thus far however no damage any k and is reported. While the Shock was Felt strongly in dwellings persons trayling in the elevated roads did not know its occurrence until they were told it by the people getting in at the stations and that the Shock Felt the elevated station was slight compared with that the ground below. As far As can be ascertained the Shock was entirely imperceptible the Waters. Immediately after the Shock had been Felt at the Dolice Central office considerable confusion was occasioned and an impression at first prevailed that a violent explosion had occurred in the neighbourhood. A Little i Vescie action however led acting supermen Dentzau lers to the conclusion that Quot the cause the disturbance was a real earthquake. He at once sent out a general dispatch to All precincts asking for information in regard to the Shock in their districts answers soon began to pour in and the operators were kept Busy for two hours writing out the reports from the different captains. It appears the Shock wag Felt in about the same intensity All Over the City although it produced alarm in the thick a settled tenement District the East Side. A Telegram from the Yonkers police said the Shock had been Felt there also. Great excitement prevailed in t a jew Iii and Bohemian Quarter the lil St Side the houses in which Are mostly High and lightly constructed tenements Werf violently shaken and the terrified inmates rushed out into the streets carrying with them whatever their household effects they could move. Children screaming with fright were borne out by parents who were hardly less panic stricken and the whole population was soon massed in the Center the Street. In Ludlow Street Between Hester and canal the panic was at its i eight the streets were swarming with Pecille men women and children huddled to Setber. Evidently thinking their last hour Hud arrived and expecting every moment to see the Walls their dwellings fall i it them women were shrieking and the children bawling while the men were either swearing praying. This was kept up for nearly half an hour when the commot. finally subsided and the police Pursa decl the people to return to their Homes. Similar scenes were witnessed in Mulberry Jar Joey and Mott streets where the italians have their colonies. The fright however not so intense and after a Little their loud shouts and wild be stipulations ceased. A few minutes after the Shock a Man rushed if Ito Madison Street police station and said several houses in Monroe Street Hal Turo bled Down. Ambulances were called and the Reserve Force sent out by the sergeant. On. Arriving at the place indicated they found the Street in fron t a Large tenement was crowded with excited throng people but there was no indication any Accident the panic was caused by an excited Man who rushed into the Street shouting the House is falling. Many instances a similar character we .-9 reported in the tenement House District but As far As can be ascertained no damage anywhere was done. In Many houses the door Bells were set ringing by the Shock. Its cause was a matter much speculation especially among the More ignorant classes and it was a Long time bet re Many understood the real nature the occurrence. In Central Park the Shock was More severe than in the surrounding regions. There were Large crowds the walks that a Ere at once thrown into a state violent excitement by the strange rumbling in the ground which was distinctly heard. The animals in the menagerie were frightened by t e Shock and Many them were seen to tremble As if m great fear while they remained perfectly still for some Lime Atter it occurred. Operator Hooiman at the Arsenal v As thrown from his chair but was not Hurt. The globes the lamps in his office were cracked tie ceiling the tenth precinct station House was badly cracked and a Frame ii ouse at 147 Lewis Street was cracked in several places and one the women who lived in the House became unconscious from fright. A Street car in Avenue b was lifted from the track several pinup Aud several Are reported thrown Down. At the drug store it inf to ninth Street and tenth Avenue several bottles Wera lir own from the . Tiie policeman the Brooklyn Bridge reports Liat the Shock was distinctly Felt there Aud the great toiver8 at either end oscillated visibly while the Bridge itself rocked. The Shock Tho was Felt generally along the River Aud the Niers were shaken As if heavily loaded trucks were passing Over them. At the Iron Steamboat pier a Structure solid masonry Tho motion so violent that the ticket takers rushed from their offices to ascertain the cause. Late in the afternoon the boats brought Back crowds from Coney Island there the Shock seemed More violent than in the City. The piazzas and dining rooms the hotels were Well filled when the rumbling noise was heard followed by the rocking the ground which made the windows rattle and Shook dishes and wine glasses from the tables there was a general Rush for the open air. And for some time Greit excitement prevailed. At the Nev piers there was a similar Shock and even the chairs rattled about. There was a general Rush toward the main Entrance people being under the impression that the Structure was giving Way. As the shocks did not recur apprehensions this score were allayed. In Brooklyn the earthquake was Felt very generally throughout the City. Alo. the River front and in Tho Eastern District the Shock appears to have been heavier and longer duration. Everywhere the people abandoned their houses some in terror and others to learn the calamity Liat had befallen their neighbors. At Gree Point the people started upon a run for the immense Oil works the Shore Newtown Creek thinking an explosion had occurred there while All the fire companies harnessed their horses to respond to the alarm which they thought would soon follow. The sensation experienced Board the receiving ship Vermont at the Brooklyn Navy Yard was similar to that Felt when a broadside is discharged from a ship at some distance. According to tie Story one the sailors there was a distinctly Felt Jar and noticed by All aboard i Erous travelling in the Street cars Felt a vibration and in Many instances the wheels the cars seemed to leave the track producing the same effect As when they pass Over a Loose switch. The Bell the presbyterian Church in Green Point swayed Back and Forth and rang several times loud enough to be heard by All the people living in the neighbourhood. Among other evidences the violence the agitation in Brooklyn May be mentioned the stopping clocks throwing Down High piles bricks the swinging lamps and pictures and the like. Many sunday schools were in session at the time and the teachers in some instances had great difficulty in alleviating the terror the children and preventing a panic. From the reports received from Long Island it appears that the earthquake visited that Region with a greater severity than this City. Along the Atlantic Coas Long Island the Shock was very violent and the vibrations seemed to increase in Power As they travelled eastward. In Jamaica the vibrations lasted ten seconds and the chimneys several houses toppled Over. No serious damage however is reported from any place. In Long Island in the City Flushing at Whitestone and College Point the trembling the ground was distinctly Felt and the shaking the houses perceptible. Fifty guests at a Long Beach hotel ran from the dining room to the Beach and refused to return to the building for some time fearing a recurrence the Shock. The amount alarm by the earthquake everywhere was simply astounding and was the theme conversation far into the night while the preachers in Many churches discoursed upon the subject people prayed who never prayed before and these who May have prayed before Only prayed the More. Pious Catholic women told their beads and recited a Quot Pater and ave Quot while men that Faith made the sign the Cross and everybody confessed to being possessed very Peculiar feeling Aing and immediately after the Shock and few there were who envied the positions occupants a ten Story hat. There were Many thanksgivings at vespers services that the present visitation was not More severe and prayers were offered that a recurrence the earthquake May not i attended by More serious disasters. Leports from Many parts this slate Connecticut new Jersey and Pennsylvania show that the Shock was Felt about As in this City and was attended with no Raore Graver damage than the tumbling old chimneys the rattling dishes. Some women at different Points Are said to have fainted but no one As far As known died for 5gh i. Earthquake notes. Another Shock Felt it mount Washin to a and Georgetown.
