    have comparatively speaking, suffered but little,
being built on a solid rocky foundation; and we
can only hear of one of Gen. Herrera's houses,
occupied by Messrs. Gibbs & Co., being in a
dangerous state.
The custom house has sacred little; some
slight constructed outward ornaments having been
demolished, and part of the roof having been car
ried along with it.
The consequent heavy rain, however, on the
9th inst., has damaged a number of packages, the
extent of which we have not ascertained. A few
houses situated on the top of the bill (Main Top,)
a sailors' resort, came tumbling down with a
In those parts, however, spreading along the
beach, the Almendrole, Cello Nears, and others,
where the ground is loose and sandy, considerable
damage has been done, and above two hundred
houses are unfit for habitation. More than two
hundred families have been obliged to pass the
first day and night in the street, partly from fear
of renewed shocks, partly from the danger attend
ing the stay in their houses.
In the course of the following day, tents and
wooden houses were erected in the Plaza de Vic
toria, for the houseless. The captains of vessels of
all nations in the port placed at the disposal of all
who wanted either from necessity or fear, a refuge,
and have since then received the . thanks of the
government for their hospitality.
Much damage has been done to stores where
liquids, glassware, and other breakable materials
are kept. We are happy to say, not a single life
has been lost, nor can we hear of n severe frac
On the 4th inst., at 12 o'clock, I'. M.. a heavy
rain set in, which lasted uninterruptedly for 12
hours, and cooled the atmosphere considerably,
but destroyed still more property, pouring into the
roofless houses, and compelling those who had ta
ken refuge in the plaza, and were living in tents
to seek shelter.
The loss is generally estimated, including the
damage done to buildings, at one million of dol
The principal public buildings which have suf
fered are the Adonana, the churches Merced and
Martz, the cartel of the national guard, the Hospi
tal, and the Temple St. Domingo.
Commissioners have been appointed to examine
the houses, and to condemn those which are in an
unsound condition.
Business has only been interrupted for one day,
the Custom House hating been closed by order of
the Intendente.
Casa Blanca, as well as Quillota, have suffered
severely, and in some parts in the latter places,
as well as in the capital, the ground has opened
and thrown up a quantity of hot water.
The damage done in Santiago is similar to that
in Valparaiso, with the exception that there be
ing a larger number of public buildings in the
capital, the pecuniary loss must be severer.
The principal public buildings more or less
damaged are the mint, a Splendid new building
in the Plaza at the same time the residence of his
Execlleney, President Bullies, the Cathedral, the
temple San Francisco, the Church do la Compa
niaa (which has been closed since,) the old palace
completely ruined, and the court house.
