' Extracts of Letters from Charleston, dated 14th
and 19th June.
" 1 informed you of a dreadful fire having hap--
pened, by which 60 or 70 houses had been confam
p cd ; bnt alas ! it feetns the ruin of Charleston is de
termined on. Since yesterday, 3 o'clock PM, till
now, 7 PM, at Jfeaft 250 dwelling-houses are in
a(hes by an Incendiary. The fire caught behind
Penman's and Coirie's Stores : the latterjoft a good
deal. All the north fide of the Bay, from Pen
man's new (tore to Church street, all the oppoiite
part of ftieet, great part of Union street,
all Lodge alley, great pait of Union street contin
ued, all the east and weft fide of Church street,
from Qneen to Broad street, M'Kenzie's, Doctor
Joseph Kamfey's, and Blacklock's houfe# and the
north fide of Broad street to the Beef market, and
from thencc to Queen street, none but two houses
are (landing.
The fire was partly flopped in Whitman, the
Silverfmith'shoufe, which being of Brick, and til
ed, prevented it from spreading farther. The wind
was high at the time, and 1 expe&ed it to cross
Broad-street, after which all the southern part of
the Bay would have gone. Only five houses on the
Bay, from the corner 1 of Queen ftreft, were burnt.
lCinloch's house, all Kinloch's court are in ruins ;
the old Church steeple was three times on fire, but
saved by a great reward and greater exertions. Dr.
Carter's lioufe and the neighbouring ones were pul
led down ; a great number of Houses were blowft
up ; several lives were loft, and many worthy peo
ple were hurt.
I was present at the fire of 1786 t but that, as
well as erery other I have ever seen, was a mere il
lumination in comparison with this ; the column of
fire was tremendous, and spread in different directi
ons at the fame time.
Again "! a frefh fire, from u(hich I just now
came, the Bake-house of Gaillard, in Elliot-street,
was on fire, but happily extinguished. The streets
are almost impassable for the furniture and'goods
■saved lying all about. The general loss is immense.
" The confufion the whole town has been fhrown
into by the late dreadful fire, is the reafen of the
delay the vessel has experienced. I add only a few
lines to the endofed narrative. Since Monday
night, every day one or two frefn attempts have
been made to set on fire the remaining part of »he
! once flourifhing city of Charleston. This morning
' was pgain noticed by an attempt, all or mod by
Negroes; who, when surprised and taken, shew
handfuls of money, which they fay they received
from whiie-fac'd villains, to encourage them in this
.lifaftrousbulinefs/ Where it will end, God knows.
The inhabitants are worried out with fatigue. Con
stant watching, patroling, and doing duty onguaid,
is enough to cut down the healthicft man. 1 shud
der, when going home, to pass through a long lane
of fmoaking ruinr., where you are conttantly expof
cd to falling chimnies or threatening walls. The
distress of so many families, lying in Churches and
out houses ft ill fmoaking, makes my heart bleed.
In Broad-street, Mr. Jack's house .flopped the
«' The villains always watch the wind, ta make
a new attempt on a freth quarter. Had we but
once a plentiful shower, I should deep found. All
business is at an end : and if the Banks had not i
come to the enslofed refolutiohi, every note would
have been pretested.
