C'haileston Is located RcoBraphlcally

A pecullaiity of neatly all of Charles
ton's houses aie that they nre built
with their iiatrow gable, ends to tho
streets, their broad sides, with spa
cious galleiles at ovcry door, facing
picturesque gardens jeplete with flow
ers and semi-tropical plants, enclosed
by high walls, over tho tops of which
climb MiaggHng vines, in the typical
Charleston houses the doorways open
from the sidewalk, and do not admit
anyone to the house itself, only to tho
lower piazzas. In tho center of tho
lower piazzas tho main door of the
house opens Into a spacious hallway,
with large rooms on either side, and
a colonial stairway winding to the
floors above, the galleries having a
southern exposutc,
The gardens nio enclosed by high
walls, and afford privacy fiom public
gaze to the dweller that Is not known
In the gardens of the north. Tho en
tice to the garden Is as pcisonal u
tribute as to the house, and the public
are excluded as effectually, for in
residences where the house Is sur
rounded or fronted by a garden the
gate is tecuiclv locked and a door-
hell Is placed thero so that tho caller
will ho obliged to rlnff and wait to
ho admitted. It Is said these high
walls wore built about tho gardens to
keep the negro slave at home In the
early days when they were not allow
ed on Iho streets at night without a
Tho "gateways" of early days were
of nrtlstlo merit, each homo striving
to excel Its neighbors. In no city of
thp country do they form such a per
manent feature. tThey nro mado of
wi ought Iron, with pretentious posts
of stuccoed brick, Iron nnd even gran
ite, of groat merit, giving an Inviting
enhance to a fine residence and mir
loundod by grounds literally filled
with luxuilant giowth. Tho gardens
aio fea titles of the homo rather than
for the public, more a pait of tho
house than of the stieet. Those old
baronial estates once belonged to the
wealthy slave-owners, lice and cotton
planters, who once constituted the
ailstocratlc class of South Carolina.
Many of the fertile old plantations
have boon abandoned because of now
conditions, but many of the old homos
arc still occupied by the families that
hnvo owned them for two centuries,
and within these homes If one can
gain admission, may he seen such
wonderful antique fttrnltuie, old por
tialts and mlnlatuies nnd other idles
of colonial days, that would surprise
the piesont generation nnd would do
light the collector of them.
Clmileston Is called a city of sun
shine nnd toBo, being famous for Ifs
lnlght and genial winter cllmnto and
for Its rose gardens and seml-hoplcal
How pis, which will form another para
C'hailpston is full ot objects of In
teiest to cciy Ameilcan, not th ot
south, and In ancient atchitectural
beauty exceeds any city of the south
fiom Its fifty or moip chinches and
semluniles, some date back for two
centuilps, now standing In a perfect
state of pipservatlon, I will briefly
mention two or three only of these
ecclesiastical edifices of the pre-i evo
lutional y pra, St. Michael's church
wns pipcted In 1752, built of brick,
lough cast, and Is now coloied white.
It Is l,T! fppt long by 60 feet wide nnd
IS j feet In height, and Is scarcely sur
passed In nrchitectaural beauty by
any In Ametlca. There is a peculiar
lepose and stability about the en
tile structure which never fails to
impress tho beholder, and it Is with
out doubt the most interesting build
ing In Clmileston today. Dining the
e.iithqunke In ISSfi Its massive plllninil
pcnch was wienched from the body of
the church nnd the foundation settled
eight Inches, making it necessary to
put a step hptwpen the floor of the
pstllmlp and the body of the church,
the building being also cracked In
four other places, but the steeple was
uninjured. Tho gilt ball, how
ex et, sill mounting the spire, was
blown down In 1S81, and subsequent
ly leplnced. It was a very prominent
landmaik, and can bo soph nt sea for
seeial miles. Duiing tho chll war
tho shells fitom the ITnlon batteries
on Monls Island (tho "Swamp Angel")
weie aimed dlrectlv at it, but strange
to say, It was not once struck. The
body of tho chinch, however, wns
shuck se en times only out of 325
shells fired within twenty-four hours,
but without ery serious Injmy. A
featuio to us on entering the gallery
was the old pipe oigan, made In Lon
don in 1707. It has three banks of
Ucs, thlity stops, with five octaves
and two octnes of sub-bass. Though
I'M yeais old, Its tones mo deep anu
clear and of good quality.
The chime of bells in the steeple
has a hlstoiy woithy of i elating. Tho
subscription for a "ting or Dells" was
started In 17R2, and In 1764 a chime ot
eight bells, together with thp clock,
weie hung upon the tower walls,
w hich rise through the roof of the
church, constructed upon independent
foundations. In 17R2 they were cap
tut ed by the Hiitlsh as a peiqulsite of
war nnd can led bacK to England.
They weie purchased by a Charleston
merchant and reshipped to tho city in
November 20, ITS !, when the over
joyed citizens took possession ofthem,
and again placed them in position
In the stpeple or belfry. Later two
hells weie found to bo cracked, which,
after vain attempts to mend them,
In IS'IS, they wore again shipped to
England to be iccast, and wete re
turned to their places In the steeplo
tho net yenr. Heie they remnlned
undlstuibed until 1862, when they were
sent to Columbia for safe keeping.
This ptoed a false move, for they
weie burned In Febiuary, 1S6.", by
Sherman's nrmy, and so badly In
jured as to bo entirely useless, while
two bells ucio stolen and never re
cox oi ed. They weio again sent to
England and recast by the successois
of the film that had made them over
a bundled years hefoio, fiom tho same
patterns, and the eight bells, as near
ly identical as possible with the oilg
inal ones, wpre landed in Chaileston
In 1S67. Kohiuary, ISfi", they were
held for a month, however, until the
customs duty nf $2,200 Imposed wns
raised, and again, on March 21, 1867,
the familiar chimes once moie uuig
out upon the onis of the people, the
sweet music of "Home, Sweet Homo"
and "Homo Again from a Foreign'
Shore," No sound nppenls so tniicli
lngly to tho heart ot a Charlestnnlnn
as those old bolls, and their i etui a
was a souice of deep emotion, and
since thnt day they have hung uudls
tutbPd In Ihelr belfry, where still tho
white-hnlied negro who has rung tho
chimes for sixty years strikes with his
aged hands tho well-worn handles,
which by the ropes overhead call forth
lesounding peals of the sweetest
miisle of the day.
In St. Michael's churchvaul, In tho
i car of the church, nro Intericd the
lemalns of many of Charleston's most
honoied citizens, among them tho bril
liant and dauntlea antagonist of Dan
iel "Wobstfr, Itobeit Y. Hnynoj nlso
James Louts Petlgru, tho antl-seces-slonlst,
who during tho war boldly
walked the sheets, voicing his loyal
sentiments unmolested. Heie nre a
number of curious epitaphs. I will
quota but one;
"View this tonili as j oil pasa by,
I'cir as J ou are so onto was I;
Ami as 1 am you nimt be.
Prepare joursclt to follow me,"
Another sacied landmark, and prob
ably only second In order ot Inteiest,
nnd that, too, of the pre-revolutlonniy
era, Is St. Philip's church, with light
house In Its tower, representing tho
first establishment of the church of
England In the Carollnns, It was
opened for divine servlc in 16S2, par
tially destroyed and rebuilt In 1723-7
and destroyed again In 1835 and lebullt
In 1S38. It has been foitunate, how
ex er, in escaping destruction from bat
tle and siege, ns well as wreck from
fire and catthquake. It lesembles St.
Michael's in appearance, an Imposing
structure rising two hun.dted feet into
tho air, nnd from Its steeple, n. fine
view Is had of tho fortified harbor and
the peninsula on which Charleston
stands. In 119 adjoining gravoynrd llo
tho remains of Carolina's Illustrious
statesman, John C. Calhoun (In a inar
blo sarcophagus). This cemetery Is
over two centuries old. There nro sev
eral other prominent nnd ancient build
ings. Tho first independent church
was erected In 1731, tho first Presbyter
Ian Scotch church, nn otitgTowth of tho
Independent, wns built in 1814, and af
ter tho earthquake was remodelled and
fitted up in tho most modern and con
venient style. Tho First Baptist church
was organized In 1822 nnd represents
the first organization of the Baptists
In all tho south. Tho first Methodist
n liars In South Carolina wero erected
In Charleston In 1736, and where John
nnd Chnrles Wesley pleached while on
a visit here In 1737. Oeorgo Whitfield
preached In tho Congregational chinch
In 173S nnd 18 III. Tho present Grnco
church Is one of tho more modern
among tho Episcopal churches of tho
city and presents a handsome specimen
of Gothic architecture. The Jewish
synagogue was Incorporated In 171)1,
though the first meeting of the Israel
ites In Charleston was lipid In 1750.
Tho present tabernacle Is a handsom
strucliiio and Interior richly finished.
Tho organ, scrolls of tho law and rec
ords were sent to Columbia during the
wnr nnd doshoyod at the burning of
thnt city In 1SG5.
Tho city hall Is a very handsome and
Imposing building, built of mnrblo,
with a double flight of marble steps.
Tho whole floor and walls from base
ment for three stories are finished and
paved with maible. The chief attiao
tlon to strnngors Is the number of por
traits and busts which adorn the coun
cil chamber nnd mayor's office. Spn
permits only a brief notice of the prin
cipal ones a full length portrait of
President George Washington, nlso
portraits of James Munroe, Andrew
Jackson, John C. Calhoun, Zachary
Taylor, Win. C. Preston, Wade Hamp
ton, General Moultrie, General Francis
Mai Ion, General Robert E. Lee, Rob
ert F. Hayne, etc. In the cases on the
walls hang the sword of General G. T.
Hpnuipgard, prpsonted by his family
after his death, and that of John
Mitchell, son of the Irish pntrlot, who
lost his life at Fort Sumter In the de
fense of Chaileston.
The new postoftlce is an imposing
structure. The walls are faced w 1th
granite and the whole building Is bpau
tlfully finished in maible and mahog
any. The now custom house, ns seen
from tho bay, Is an Imposing struc
ture. The building Is of white marble,
the style of architecture Is Roman
Corinthian, with Immense marble col
umns. To give some Idea of its mag
nitude nnd cost of construction, the
foundation consists of seven thousnnd
thirty feet piles, on which rests a
heavy lay of grillage; then follows a
thickness of eighteen inches of con
cicte, on which stand a number of
Invcited arches, built of brick and
about ten feet high. Tho supeishuc

The Mllltaiy academy, conducted by
the state, somewhat upon tho lino of
the United States academy of West
Point, pro Ides free education to some
of tho manly youths of the state, and
Is recognized as one of the educational
institutions of the city. Above two
thousand youths have received its ben
efits since its opening, and It is claimed
Its cadets, who manned a battery on
Morris' Island, fired tho first shots of
tho Civil war and prevented tho land
ing of tho "Star of the West" on Jan.
0, 1861. The News and Courier is tho
only dally moinlng paper published In
Charleston and Is one of the oldest
and ablest and most Influential papeis
In the south, and a veiy important
clement in the life of Charleston.
The Chaileston Library society was
organized in 1748, nnd has a mine of
historical and local history of IntPiest
nnd value. This association Is the
earliest in the city, and third of Its
kind In the United States. During
the war many valuable books were sent
to Columbia nnd were saved. The
chamber of commerce was established
as early as 1783. It is made up of tho
piogrcsslve young element of Chailes
ton. It has a commodious loading
room. Tho Auditoilum is tho largest
and finest building of the kind in tho
south. Tho main hall is ISO feet square
with a spacious gallery on threo sides
and with a seating capacity of 10,000
persons. The stnge Is 00x100 feet. The
structure was erected hy tho city as a
memoilal to the late John Thomson,
who left his piopeity mainly to the
City of Benevolence.
St. Andiew's society, a Scotch char
itable organization, was the Hist one
of Its name oigani.ed In the United
States, about 17'J, Their descendants
are Justly pioud of the society, which
contains many valuable ancient relics
as well ns those of the Civil war.
Among tho latter ate tho secession
tablo and chads, ns well as the mnllet
used by the chairman at tho timo the
oidlnance of necesslon wns passed, rat
ified and signed, Dec. 20, 1860.
Among tho hotels of the city, tho
New Chaileston Is the most Imposing
structuie. The fiont presents a double
verandn, tho lower faced with massive
square-cut pillars nnd the upper with
a long colonnde, with eighteen Iconic
columns, comprising threo stories to
the roof, which gives an Imposing ap
peal ancc. It is four stoiles high and
occupies a block. Comfort, conveni
ence and luxury nre everywhere in tho
building. The sun pailois on fiist nnd

bath and toilet looms aie supplied
with aitcslan water fiom a well 3,000
