Wednesday morning the eighth was one i he most Beautiful thai could he imagined Sun shone Oul in All its splendor soft and pleasant Breeze came in from the sea everything seemed in a stale natural piece and qui cd. There were estimated to be about seventy five persons in the French cof fee House when i was taking my meal.-. We had All sat Down to break fast an that morning usual and were quietly taking our morning meal Chut Ling and talking freely the thousand trivial subjects that come upon such occasions indeed we hid All nearly pm shed breakfast. For myself i had finished my breakfast and was silting partly sideways at the table a one to ild naturally sit after verging with the gentleman who sat opposite to me i had the Towel ring in my hand turning it about and careless y playing with it. The first thing which attracted my Alt nation was a sudden Jar accompanied by a rumbling sound like Distant Thun Iler. I had some two weeks before this been at fort Royal in the Island Martinique seen the effect Ilar visitation and i instantly knew what it meant. So sudden was the Shock that within two seconds from the instant i first fell the air i looked up Rind saw the whole building com mencing Al the farther end falling upon joists opened and All a Fin to come Down Wilh an awful crash. I instantly uttered the word gentleman who sat opposite me turned his head and looked up sideways but never Rose from ins at precisely the same moment and without waning to turn about 1 started from my scat in 1 actually jumped sideways out the window through Glass Sash and All 1 n no Suone ten twelve feet in the urd below. It could not have been Over three to five seconds from the instant i first Felt the to the my feet struck the pavement. My impressions touching the ground was its indescribably rapid Rno can compare it to nothing unless it might be the Seive a threshing Mill in its most rapid motion i should judge from the distance 11 was thrown first one Way and then that the lateral motion the must have been from eleven to fourteen feet. I succeed notwithstanding in retaining my feet for some eight ten till i got away from the build ing 10 the distance 30 40 Yards into an open lot ground. While i was walking this distance thirty forty Yards i the buildings the whole City tumbling into one mass also. The Earth opening in the lower part the town and spouting up immense vol Umes water to the height an Hun dred an Hundred and fifty the multitude thoughts which de through my mind during these few lion from noise the Lull Wagon saw a v Hung up where i was Bro upset a thing in upset to ladies an were the install i was g sight window and Par first Thi lather More i arms.

The whole e Waltzing 1 was also Waltz one the ladies. Breakfast ready and we were just it Down to it. A minute this a Little boy belonging y the House went upstairs grandmother i been playing where Wilh we had a Little thing called my Alten the Wellz was hearing a , which i took to be boy up stairs drawing his 6r the floor which had no it. At the same moment i y Large looking Glass which against the Wall in the room Vas fall upon then All to sofa was 1 the table every he room was All shaken and All the family Young All fell upon their Knees in Flat upon the floor. I made for the stairs. And ing to the Blairs i caught a Large Church through the part in falling one Way. He Steeple was the that fell. I thought my it Don t remember anything i found myself in my father had no senses at All after that t know How i got Down stairs do i know where i went out doors nor How Long fore i was in the arms my 1 had no hat the buttons my clothes and my too were badly Lorn. I was Rise Hurt. Isely i recovered iou Ness i found the Towel bed in my hand and my boy rms How he came there i i nor does he novy nor Are Likely to know what brought at that time there living being in sight. We have been saved purely by curious preservation the Al Asplof my own clothes my Lile rally Lorn off me my mashed in my pocket Boih t Beying broken in my Vest Lorn and my pantaloons bad d. I was obliged to borrow get out Llie place. My Complete filled Wilh Lime and together covered with dust and received however no visible my for two weeks was very hardly Able to use my limbs. Imel had escaped to tie Dis the thirty Yards which i spoke Olence the first Shock had Abate a very Lille but was stania Neoushy renewed again Reater violence than beforehand was that i lost und Rayboy in arms. When arli ally recovered my senses i an to feel the arms and limbs wild to see if any them were and finding that we were both e and sound i got up and be bodies. They would go from one dead body to another overhauling them to see if they could find the person sought for and if not successful pass to another. At this time the whole City was one vast pile ruins the a Iii appearance which it utterly impossible to give even the faintest idea. Even the place and direction the streets were in Many cases wholly obliterated and could not be found. Subterranean fires now Hegan to burst Forth in different parts the City consuming every thing combustible and also destroying a Gurdal number per sons who might otherwise have been saved. At this Lime also he Earth opened along the line the whar 1 after Ward Learned from other persons throwing up volumes water and then gradually closing again and sup posed to have swallowed up a great number individuals. Everybody immediately went to work negroes sailors and All to Tig out the dead and Tho dying from the ruins wherever they heard cries Dit Tiess. In one instance we succeeded in very nearly extricating a Man from the ruins having gotten him All out except his legs and the lower part his body when the fire broke out and Burnt him to death before our eyes. At the same Lime and place we could distinctly hear the cries eight ten others who had been overwhelmed in the same ruins and who were All consumed in the subterranean fire. I Call it a subterranean fire because it Well known that few the houses in that country were like to have any fire in them at that time. From the place re i first recovered my consciousness i suppose i could Hare thrown a Stone Over Al least 800 the dead and dying. to the whole number persons who ultimately perished by that earthquake i should judge there must been from ten to fifteen thousand i have no doubt fifteen thousand. The population the town was said to be about and i could never see Over 2 3 thousand the whole population who were out and about looking for their friends. On the morning Friday the 10th. I was forwarded by the mayor Point a pct re was for Lanalely saved in a Man War lost. Pierre Martinique where i was very kindly received by p. A. De Crany the american Consul that town. He had the Day before i arrived fitted out a vessel loaded with provisions and Oiher necessaries Jit his own expense and despatched it to the Relief the sufferers at Point a Petre. To me sunday though i it was the Day seemed More like a Goldith july anniversary in new York than a Sabbath Day and a religious festival. Troops soldiers meet me which Ever Way i turn my eyes. They from the the right hand and from the the Church and from the the Barracks and from the towns adjoining from the River and from every ave nue by land. I see i am told but the beginning end but to a Republican Eye the spectacle a novel one. A citizen soldiery with their badges distinction and the Assoc Illions mingled Wilh men and arms not always a pleasing sight but a standing army mingling with the people Ever arouses the jealousies the Freeman. With for reasons growing out a vivid re Brooks letters from Europe. From the new York express arrival at Spectra the Royal George in the military exhibition. Porn Mouth eng april 19. Welcome to old England i stand upon Terra Firma again and never to my eyes did the face nature Wear a glad Der aspect. If there Beauty in the deep there enchantment the land and a double Encuna Homent now when eyes and ears Are feasted with signs Spring. The Earth wears its greenest covering and the sky its loveliest hues. The Early fruit Trees Are in Blossom and the Trees Are verdant Wilh their Youngf eaves. I left behind me Twenty four Days since Bleak a coast was Ever seen with the Earth White the air wintry and the Trees and shrubs wearing no other ice Snow now and then relieved and beautified perhaps by icicles hanging in a Hundred forms and dancing in the Light the Sun. From such a sight to such a scene after Many Days upon the water i May be excused for indulging in a Little enthusiasm but in very truth there where i am a Beauty that ook about me. I was still so scarcely whether then be bewildered hat had happened not All a dream. I Gan to look about me and saw various ind Vidi Las men women and children All cd sheirod Al Isles wandering Abbul i if frantic like myself. Some were in search a son a daughter others f a father Mother some brother and Sisters others friends and relatives All weeping in conceivable agony pitching and bout among the ruins and dead would Charm All much More then those a traveller treading a new Earth and in a land far Distant from his own Fly from ship to land half a dozen took passage by Pilot re Maing passengers choosing to land at London where the winds remain ining dead ahead they Are they May not arrive for a week to come. Our arrival at Portsmouth was not Only at the Best season the year we could have chosen but upon the very Day the year when one were to see the Little world about in full motion. Of the standing armies sent from May run loan excess but there Are no people who love the Eagle eyed vigilance a Mili tary police. To do your business tin Der the surveillance a military to that a Tnp from the drum the blast from the Buglo May sum Mon a hired soldiery before your eat drink sleep and breathe the air heaven it were in the sight bristling swords and bayonets what the mass englishmen probably do not dislike to do much an american population. The government Here seems to Leel this and therefore to it Eaken the Pang the sting a Little every thing done that can be done to make peace Between the Soldier and the citizen. The Mili tary quarters a town like by the Way the strongest fortified town in England Are Atli Active Lofte Eye Man woman and child in the place. The defences which surround the whole Borough Are converted into magnificent promenades. There a tree and a grass plot for every Cannon and Soldier in the ranks. The Eye pleased sometimes with the gorgeous uniform res the soldiery always neat and often Rich and Beautiful while the ear welcomes the Noble music the military bands. There Are the grand parades the foil fictions overlooking the sea and cultivated More like a Gar Den than a place that makes the pulse beat quicker and last not least an expenditure Money which appeals loudly in the locality a standing army and in be half its continuance. It needs no Long residence Here to see that soldiers Are the greatest peace makers and that there Here More magic in powder and Ball than could be put in a staff office in the bes written Laws that parliament a Volc Frame into a statue. There Are a world things to see a Portsmouth to amuse the traveller am the wonder that a place where there Are so Many things to see found so few persons to chronicle its attractions the Harbor one the most spacious the coast and South the sea por the famous Spithead where ships War lie Al Anchor when ready for be service. In was off this that Roya George was sunk and hundreds live lost in sight land and friends we could not save them from the the great Dock 3rard England also the wonders the age perhaps and it nothing to the cred it the kingdom that All foreigner Are prohibited from crossing the thresh old the gales. Anchors arc forge Here and every part and parcel a Shi War made and completed. Thos who have had a Peep Man foreigners sailing under false colors and giving a country not their own their highly the work Here done and in amazement its extent. I asked Many around me for a Good reason for denying the Cour Tesy a Misiou to foreigners to a place like this but got none but a poor answer in reply. England probably fan cies herself a Long Way in Advance All other nations in arms and warfare and having the More and the better Means she determined if she can keep ing others from being Wise she herself. Not seeing the docks and having Alketa the and around we visited the Public ships in the har Bor. The ship which Nelson fell was one these with All her sad and bestowed his patriotism and his Owens. Alas that such a Man should ave been seduced by an abandoned woman to do an act which detracts rom the glory a life time service to Man Felt More deeply than Nelson in wrong he had done but repentance ame when the worst deed his life and been accomplished. The murder it was nothing else one Man innocent and Brave beloved and princely rank and character the All around Nelson Monument Here and everywhere. In Spile elves whenever and be read his wonderful achievements and his consumable skill and unflinching bravery you cannot but remember hat All this splendor like a Brilliant in sinking in Clouds deep and som re Hue Mars the Beauty All that had Een seen before. But Nelson name hallowed memorials she the Pride and admiration the British Navy. The name Nelson yet has a Talis manic Power in the British service and All that there the ship Victory in which he fell has been preserve with a care and attention that shows How much the kingdom he served loved him and How Well he honoured the Faith in the rank and tilled which were Iven him by his King will live for ver and dying he did in the heat f his fight a conqueror to the last Vith Many living who participated in Lis valor and shared in his Success with a nation that honors her Brave men no other nation honors them n memory Well while living a Housand things will Tell in All time 11 that he has done. The Good and the Vil together will live after Ivil Wilh Nelson perhaps to be for Iven. And the Good assuredly not to Begotten. The Victory was a ship one Hundred and ten guns and has seen fitted up Lihe a Palace. A brass Lale upon the Quarter Derk tells you n simple words Hal her Enelson ind tar Down below beneath the bosom the Waters we saw Sac redly enclosed with the insignia Royalty and he grave together the pi0ce where he ave up the ghost nearly forty years since. Many the same Cannon that were Board the ship at Trafalgar and which did such execution against the French and Spanish ships Are painted now. There Are too. Some trophies the fight and in their appropriate place every conceivable element and instrument destruction. Returning the Quarter deck again we read arge letters those words uttered for the first time and telegraphed by Nel son from the Flag ship to each the Fleet. England expects every Man to do i a responsive understanding and Hearty we will ame from each the ships before the fight commenced and the result the death Nelson but the loss Nineteen French and Spanish ships War. From the ship and a cruise in the Harbor to and around the Flag ship the Admiral the always in readiness for sea service Here we re turned again land there to see a second time All the curiosities we could find. The fortifications Are covered and doubly covered with people. We saw one the Cannon one Hundred years old the Royal George taken Wilh a thousand things a few years since in the greatest state preservation. Than one half what went Down Hwi since been raised and what remains will be brought to Light now that the Genius Man has made the sea almost accessible the land. The buildings Are nearly All Antiqua Ted. Time and eternity would be pro per inscriptions for Many the edifices. They have defied time and if this physical world to they bid fair to last Schiller somewhere says eternity grows age and durability appear everywhere and generation upon generation have passed away worshipping at the same Temple and dwelling in the an Hundred years Here seemed one Day Al Home. Inscriptions upon build Ings erected More than two centuries since Are seen and read and the Gates the town for every town Here seems to be protected this Way Bear a much greater age and this ii but the begin Ning a myriad old sights in eng land. A sunday military exhibition with the troops marching to and from Church with Fine bands playing and followed by thousands men women boys and girls reminding one any Day but Sabbath closed All that i May Chroni Cle at Portsmouth. The soldiers Wor a appearance the to Brighton arrival at London London april 22d. I am in London the largest City in the world and far More magnificent and extensive than i had Ever dreamed great world itself and remembered by Tacitus a Large com Mercial place far Back the reign Nero. Imagination lost almost in looking upon a City like this and the mind Man bewildered in at tempting to group together even the wonderful events its history. The City Loo old even for anything like a Correct knowledge its beginning and it impossible to exaggerate its history its appearance. For a thousand years it was important place and for two centuries past it has been one the wonders the age. The More i Sec and i have Early been Aboul forty Miles foot in and about London the More amazed i am in View the past and the present. A space four Hundred acres in the out set enclosed by a Wall not More than two Miles in extent was the beginning this huge pile buildings now Cov ering thousands acres and Many Miles. A year Lime would not suf fice for seeing it should be seen a City like this and i must Content my self therefore with noting Only Tho novelties that Cross my path. But firs to coming Here. We two americans and myself look the coach at Portsmouth to Brighton pay ing a Day in Advance Tucny shillings for the privilege seats outside in lobe deducted from our fare which was to be twelve shillings each upon the outside the coach seventeen within. The outside Riding by far the most comfortable Well the least expensive and therefore a dozen passengers ladies included were seated upon the lop in front and in the rear Toje coach with no one our distance was five posts so they count distances silly nearly sixty Miles Miles being a Post. The roads All the Way were level and hard our sidewalks at Home and clean and comfortable con Stant sweeping and sprinkling could make them. The country was every where h Etc Tifful and fruitful and an april Day though it was with the much abused erf Glish sky and Clouds above there. Wan neither rain nor Dew to mar our Prospect. The Trees were in Blossom the Hedges beginning to be full and Green and the Fields were fair to Woolf upon the god nature and the labor Man could make them. Field Flowers various kinds lined the Highway and it needed but some More Forest Trees which were almost everywhere few and far Between to make the whole route a scene enchantment. The sea was upon oar right and seen frequently we Rode along from town to own upon our right and left too were Hill sides and valleys All in the highest state cultivation. The Farmers had heir spa Cious barns and Small and yet comfortable habitations. Most them however were tenants instead own ers which showed something in con Trast to Farmers in the United states and to my mind something not it should be. The land was Good and yielded abundantly we could see by the appearance the earliest vege tation Ana it had been kept Good for hundreds bul Only by dint hard labor and he Observance the nicest principles agriculture. Where the land was ploughing horses were used and in every instance they were guided by Small boys. I saw but woman working in the Fields and she teemed to be there rather from Choice than from necessity. We passed through several towns before reaching our first destination More less importance. Chichester was one the largest and Worth seeing the shipped by themselves such them choose to enter the Church built and provided for them by the government and which course the established religion Here. I attended divine service in the military Chapel. The music the showy uniforms and the spacious Church were the Only attractions there. E. B. Capri and Al Sussex and for its Cathedral numerous churches. Worthing another town the same county we also passed through and around once a noted Hamlet for fishermen and now for its sea bathing. Brighton the next town and for some Miles distance in sight. The roads which i ought to add Are turnpikes with toll Gates every few Miles and heavy tolls continued equally Good till we were landed and the country Wilh a few exceptions equally Beautiful. For Miles we Rode along the Borders the Channel which separates the English from the French coast and in five hours and a few moments from Mpr Smouth at Brighton. Were landed in
