iated * ith the Peterson (Pettersson) family,
which settled in this country in the l"th
century, will find it to their own interest to
report their names and addresses to llcl Ogden
Rev. Martin J. England, pastor of the
Swedish Lutheran Church, on Ninth street,
below Buttonwocd, lives at 1031 Ogden
street, the sddress given in the above ad
A man Darned Peterson, who thought he
might have an interest in the matter, called
at Mr. England's home last evening in
quest of information.- Pastor England is
quite a handsome man, of about the mt dium
height and rather stoutly built. He
has a large, full, clear cut face, adorned by
a full sandy beard. A pair of big, laughing
blue eyes shine through a pair of goldrimmed
spectacles. His appearance is one
that at once inspires confidence and makes
the visitor feel completely at his ease.
When Mr. Peterson stated his business,
Mr. England said: "The gentleman wLo
advertised is not here, but I act in his
place. The ostensible reason for getting
the families together is for a grand family
ruinion. The people we want are descendants
of Gabriel Pettersson, who was active
in- lie Revolutionary War. The family
name.*was originally Pettersson, but it has
been modified to Peterson."

There is a great deal of property in this
city involved. sty, indeed, the

where there is also a very, large
tract of land which was ori^jnaliy^jhe property
of the Peterson family, WViiave advertised

"The Petterssous who came and settled
in thie country were all good people aiid
all highly respectable. They were king's
officers, army and navy officers, and somt
eventually became officers in the American
armies. Of course, you will understand
that it is quite difficult for the people to be
positive that they are of the same family,
although it is quite a large one, numbering
fully 500 persons. Intermarriage wilt
English and French families by the Swedish
families might have the effect of obliterating
a portion of their pedigrees. Then,
again, we must have a person's entire family

"There has been quite a contest going or;
for years over tliis estate and I believe thai
the people are now going to see what car
be done to reclaim it. Some of the familj
are quite wealthy. There now one Peterson
in Wilmington worth over a million
and a half.
HIDDEN IX AX OLD ABU-CHAIR.
"During the Revolutionary war the deeds
and papers belonging to this estate were all
lost and for years and years nothing was
ever known ot them.
"For a number of years mi old arm-chaii
lay knocking around from one place to an
other. Nobody wanted it or would, have
anything to do.with it. Finally it was made
_ . . a prese.nt.to a man named Smith, who is a
well-to-do ana.quite prominent lawyer.
One day while making some slight repairs
to the chair he made quite a discovery.
Concealed ix. the cushion of the chair was
a drawer or box. and much to his
- amazement, concealed in this compartment
. were the long-lost and much-wanted deeds
and papers. Mr. Smith, howfcver, has succeeded'
in holding on to them ever since,
not they will do him a penny's worth oi
good, but simply through personal spite.
The papers can no doubt be recovered afiei
his death, bu* it is desirable that they be
got hold of as soon as possible. No one
has ever seen these papers, yet everybody
knows that Smith has them and won't give
them up, as he holds them secure through
some legal technicality.
A THIEF PAID TO STEAL THEX.
"Numerous efforts have been made time
/ and again to gain possession of the papers,
hut without avail. Some years ago the
parties who now advertise made a gigantic
effort to get hold of them and spent fully
$5,000 doing so. So great was the desire
to get hold of the papers that an attempt
was made to rob SmitJi's-hQ^^an^t^

hunt the matter up and make diligent ir

to you is to do the same, for you may fin<
that you are entitled to a portion of thi
great property and will probably eventual!
gain your share.

of the valuable papers belonging to the

Arthur H. Smith, the younger brother
of Lawjer Smith, was seen at his office.
He disclaimed all knowledge of the armchair,
or of the existence of such papers.
He said, however, that an attempt had been
made to rob his brother's house some years
ago by a man who was so disguised as to
make his appearance very much like that

succeeded in making good his escape. A

His mother-in-law, Mrs. Tataall, whose
grounds adjoin those of Mr. Smith, said:
"There is an old chair in Mr. Smith's

was an attempt made to rob his house some
years ago. There were large numbers of
people, mostly young women, in the house
that evening, and all were going out to a
party. The man got into Mr. Smith's,
room, and when he was discovered by a
servant, he said to her: "Won't you come
and shake hands with me?" The girl at
once spread the alarm, but the thief made

known as a very wealthy family. The first
member of the family to land on these
.shores was Cles Petterson, who came here
and acquired a tract of land 62x300 feet, on
April It), 1657 Following him came other
members of the family, and tbe amount of
property which they "acquired was simply
t-uormous, one grant alone covering what
is now the city of Wilmington. This grant
was made on April 16, 1675. John btallcop
on that day conveyed to Samuel Petterson
<the greater part of iris estate, beginning
at a thornbush in the middle of
French street and on a line with the south
side of Water street, thencc easterly up the
middle of French street to a point between
Third and Fourth streets, thence by a

son was appointed a Justice of the Peace
on June 8. 1695. and Andrew Pettersson

' Hans Pettersson was a member of the New

The family and their property can be

Discouraging Sew? About Stanley.
I Loxdos, Jane 21.?A dispatch from St.
I Paul de Loan do, dated yesterday, says:
"Several deserters from Stanley's expedition
have reached Camp Yambunga.
_ They state that after traversing Upper Aruwhimi
Stanley struck into a rough and
mountainous country, covered with a dense
forest. The natives who were excited by
reports spread by the Arabs, disputed the
passage of the expedition and there was
[ continuous fighting.
! "Stanley was severely wounded by an
: arrow. He was compelled several times to
construct camps in order to repel attacks,
and was obliged to nsp thp TPf&rva nrnm.
sions that were intended for Emin Bay.
The Soudanese attached to the force had
all died or disappeared. The deserters esti
mate that the caravan lost one-third of its
men and they say many of those remaining
were ill, including the Europeans.
"Stanley was encamped when the deserters
left. He was surrounded by hostiles
and was^mable to send news to Emin
Bey or directly to Yambunga. Major Bartellot
had returned to Yambunga, where he
was awaiting the men that Ward was col
lecting to form a powerful expedition to go
to the relief.of Stanley. The sickness at
Yambunga was lessening, but only 80 of
the 125 z.anzibars survived. Tippoo-Tib

and started by the interior about the end of
January. Ward left Boma on May 20 for

CAUGHT Bt A KISING TIDE.
The Perilous Situation of a Party of Hash !
(From the >:ewcaai.le Chronicle.)
Eleven boys, ranging in age from 11
to 14 years had a most extraordinary adventure
on the b~ach at Seaham Harbor
recently. At the south side of the town
there is a rock projecting from the mainland,
known as Nose Point, on the top
of which are~built the Vane and Seaham
blastfurnaces. Underneath is a large
: cavern, locally known as the "Smuggler's
I Cave," which at high tide is filled by the
sea. Among the boys referred to, the
exploration of this cave and the unearthing
of the treasure of some buccaneer of
the past had long been an object to be
accomplished, and a determination was
at last come to to carry out the project"
at the first fitting opportunity.
Saturday was fix6d upon for the day
ot\A thfl-y started off. headed
by a trusty leader and provided with
candles, lanterns, torches, a pick and
shovel. Entering the cavern at low water,
they commensed work, and soon were so
intent upon the object of their labors
that they never heeded the turn of the
tide, and it was only when they found
escape from the cave by the way they
had entered impossible that they realized
their position. The water drove them
further and further back into the cave,
until they found it impossible to recede
further. To avoid the rise of the water
several of the boys climbed as high up
the walls of the cave as possible. Others
had no alternative but to stand pressed
up against the end of the cavern and
allow the water to gradually creep in
Higher and higher rose the water, and
deeper and deeper the lads became immersed
until some of them were covered
up to the shoulders. They all managed,
however, to-keep erect, notwithstanding
their weakened condition, procured by
shouting for help and numbness from
being compelled to stand in the wacer.
Now and then a broken wave would dash
in among them, rendering their position
still more perilous. * Moreover, the cave
vriis nearly dark, 'all the lads' lights having
befcn put out exoept one, which had
> escaped the wash of the waves and continued
to give forth its feeble illumination.
Ore of the boys at last, from sheer
want of strength, was washed from his
I ? holding; but soon another lad standing
, j near groped in the dark, and, with nothI
''nor hnf, thA cries of his comrade to guide
11 him, succeeding in restoring him to his
> I feet.
In the meantime the lads had been
! missed from their homes, and their continued
absence caused inquiries to be
i made. This resulted in their wherej
abouts becoming known. A rumor then
* got abrof d that all the boys had been
drowned, and soon fathers, mothers,
brothers, sister and a large body of othei
men, women and children rushed off in
| eager haste to the top of the cliff. There
(was no way of reaching them from the
shore, nor was there any possibility of
going down the precipitous face of the
cliff with ropes. .Nothing could, mere
fore, be done by the hundreds of people
who had collected but to wait until the
* fall of the tide would admit of access to
the cave from the shore." Meanwhile the
imprisoned bovs passed a terrible time;
but j ast when they thought the worst had
> come the water stopped rising. Slowly
ths water left the cave, and in & short
1 tim*6 they felt themselves in comparative
safety, although in darkness. It was,
however, 10:30 o'clock at night before
they were rescued.
