308 페이지 - ... was filled up with part of the ruins of the cathedral. Besides a waving, or undulatory movement ; vertical, horizontal, and circular, or twisting motions, were felt. An angular stone pinnacle was particularly noticed, which had been turned half round without being thrown down, or leaving its base. Persons riding at the time of the great shock were stopped short, — some, with their horses, were thrown to the ground, others dismounted, but could not stand. So little was the ground at rest after...
311 페이지 - ... site of many houses. The low grounds lying at the bottom of Concepcion bay, particularly those of the island De los Reyes, were overflowed, and injured irreparably. Quantities of cattle, horses, and sheep were lost. Similar effects, in an equal or less degree, were felt on the coasts between the river Itala, and Cape Rumena. Large masses of earth and stone, many thousand tons in weight, were detached from the cliffs, and precipitous sides of the hills. It was dangerous to go near the edge of...
346 페이지 - From the terrace of the south tower, where we are lodged, we have a noble and extended view, comprising the whole of Alexander's operations, from the passage of the Tigris to the arrival at Arbela after the battle of Gaugamela. The Bumadus meanders at the foot or southern extremity of this mountain, and I am now told it rises just below Amadieh. I can trace the Zab plainly."?

All the amphitheatre, from the top to the bottom, is full of little caves and grottoes, those near the church and extending up the rock far above it, being appropriated to the use of the monks, of whom there are fifty, only four or five of whom are priests. Each monk has a separate cell, and the communications between them are by little terraces. The rocks are craggy and broken, and of fine harmonious tints, being of freestone, of which...
363 페이지 - Cheick, and after having crossed the ridge of a mountain, which forms a grand point of intersection between two declivities, we descended into the valley of Zackal, which continues on to the gulf of Akaba. The route on which we now entered was the most singular that the imagination can picture. The valley, shut in within a width of about fifty paces by masses of granite, of from a thousand to twelve hundred feet in height, which often rose like perpendicular walls even to their very tops, exhibited...
306 페이지 - These sounds came from the south-west quarter, and preceded the shock by one or two seconds. Sometimes, but not often, the sound was heard, unaccompanied by any shock. It was the general opinion that the motion was from south-west to north-east. Some whole walls, whose direction was south-east and north-west, were laid flat ; the bricks still maintaining their relative position, though endwise, which fell bodily, without being scattered upon the ground.
183 페이지 - The country is so wooded and mountainous, that it does not produce grain sufficient for the consumption of the population, yet not a spot capable of cultivation appears to be left untilled.
308 페이지 - February as in the city of Concepcion. It took place at the same time, and in a precisely similar manner : three houses only, upon a rocky foundation, escaped the fate of all those standing upon the loose sandy soil, which lies between the sea-beach and the hills. Nearly all the inhabitants escaped uninjured ; but they had scarcely recovered from the sensations of the ruinous shocks, when an alarm was given that the sea was retiring ! Penco* was not forgotten ; apprehensive of an overwhelming wave,...
307 페이지 - ... fell into a confused heap. The cathedral, whose walls are four feet in thickness, supported by great buttresses, and built of good brick and mortar,!) suffered more than other buildings. Adhering to the remains of the walls were the lower parts of some buttresses, the upper parts of others : while in one place a buttress stood on its own foundation, separated entirely from the wall. The city of Concepcion stands upon a plain very little higher than the level of the river Bio-Bio. The soil is...
