Veatly bccoiiilnft mote cosmopolitan In Its Intel pits, If not In the character of Its population. C'haileston Is located RcoBraphlcally vrry much like New York, upon a low tongue of land, between the Ashley and Cooper livers, vciy much as New Yoik lies between the East and North llvcis that foim n conlluence at -i called Hattery I'.nk. The battel y of New Yoik and Hat tery Park of C'haileston air quite alike In mzp and similar Imposition.

C'HATH-KSTON'S STTH ; The city stands on a suiface of made ginund elevated some nine feet above high water maik. Some thieo miles in length and two in width and six miles fiom the Atlantic, l.iko many noithetu cities It It- not laid out on a regular plan, but ! lectangular In fonn, and nianv points of Inteiest belonging to the two contutlos of thH city's life .no not confined to a few localities, but aie to bo found In evoiy pait of the peninsula. The stieeta arc bio.td, well shaded with ancient trees and adoiucd with many public and private buildings. The main streets begin at the South Hattery and run duo north. The cioss sheets, stniting fiom the center line of the city, tun east and west to the water fronts, King stieet is the ictail thoioughfaio, and Is oer throe miles long; on It aiu some fine stiiie tures and some of the oldest and his toric edifices In the city. Meeting 'street, next to King, is the main wholesale riunrtois, as well as the principal hotels and numerous hand some ipsldence, many of them a cen tury old, with the colonial dooiwnys, bioad plazas, two stoiles, nvei looking a large flower garden enclosed by nn ' ornamental lion fence. Hroad sheet Is the center of the financial interests of the city, wheio am located hand some bank and limn. men buildings. 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, A CITY OP GARDENS. 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 permit. 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 graph. OBJECTS OP INTHREST. 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. ST. MICHAEL'S CHIMES. 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 THE CHHRCHYAUD, 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," ST. PHILIP'S CHUHCH, 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. CITY HALL. 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 tuie llsos fiom this foundation. OTHElt NOTABLE BUILDINGS. 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 second floor nio popular featuies. The bath and toilet looms aie supplied with aitcslan water fiom a well 3,000 feet deep. The old Wonworth street aiteslan well, water seemed on the piemlses nnd used for di Inking pur poses, Is claimed to he a suro cine for dyspepsln.
