Needs["BarCharts`"]; BarChart[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> {True, True, None, None}, FrameTicks -> {{{1, "0"}, {2, "1"}, {3, "2"}}, Range[0, 3], None, None}, FrameLabel -> (Style[#1, FontSize -> 14] & ) /@ {"x-axis label", "y-axis label"}] So we get a bar chart with the bar labeled 0, 1 , and 2 on the x-axis and below a centered label for the axis. The trick is to use the form {tick_position, tick_label} for each ticks on the x-axis For instance, {2,"1"} tells Mathematica to display one rather than two for the second tick.
