Dktuoit, Mich., Feb. B.—Dispatches have
been received here, stating that a volunteer de
tective named Brown, who has been working at
at the famous Crouch murder case, was shot this
evening near Horton, two or three miles from
the Crouch homestead, by two men who passed
him in a buggy. The wound is a dangerous one.
JBro.vn is confident'hat the man who fired the
I shot was Judd Crouch. If this proves true, tho
day which shall reveal the perpetrators of that

' 7 Lis evening Detective Brown, of Jonesville,
who has bee i engaged on the Crouch murder
| ca>e tor snmeiime, and has been operating in |
1 the neighbor hood of the Crouch farm, was shot
while returning to the village of Horton. lie
was walking leisurally along, about oae and a
half miles north of the village,
when he met two nun in a boggy. They
Btoppedand asked him if his name was Brown,
and he replying in the affirmative, when oris of
the occupants of the bn.;»y placed a revolver at
Brown's breast and fired. Tho ball ontered not
far from the heart and lodged near tlu> shoulder

away. The wounded man, however, was able to

be going toward Hi rton in a buggy, and con

properly cared for, and although the
wound is a severe one, it is thought it will not
prove fatal. It is reported here to-night, that
Judd Crouch was seen in the vilage of Horton,

j Special Telegram to the Globe. J
j New Yobk, Feb. 3. — The liability of railroad
companies for damages for iiijur.es sustained
by persons traveling upon free passes is to be
tested by a pending suit. Emigration Commis
sioner Utrich was a passenger on the ill-fated
Albany train whioh was wrecked in a collision at
Spuytenduyvil Jan. 13, 18:12. He was seated
in the drawing-room ear. He was terribly
bruised, lacerated aud scalded. When extri
cat"d he was taken to the house of a friend and
a physician was iailed. The injured mau was
laid up for three weeks. Recently he brought
I euit against the New York Central & Hudson
I River llailroad company for $lt\o3o damages,
and the trial was begun yesterday before Judge
Beach and a jury, in the court of common pleas.
Counsel for the defense moved to dismiss the
complaint on the ground that at the time of the
accident Commissioner Ulrich was traveling on
a free pass, on the back of which there was an
agreement • that the hoider assume I
all risk of injury by acci
dent or otherwise. In opposition
to the motion it was urged that the plaintiff was
not riding entirely free as he had paid for his
seat in the drawing room car and that, how
ever, he had never actually read ths contacts
on the !-.ick of the pas*, lt was claimed that
the aceelent was caused by tho negligence of
the or,.oration and not by that of employes or
subordinates and that as against such negligence
a poss ia ao protection. Judge Beach reserved
1 his decision on tho motion to dismiss the com
, plaint until Monday morning.

THB KIVKIiS HAVE SUBSIDED.
PITTSBOTG, Feb. B.—The rivers ate again
within their banks and steadily teceding, the
Monongahelii marks showing 26 feet 11 inches
at noon, with about one foot more in the Alle
gheny. The streets of both cities are almost en
tirely clear of water, and the people in the sub
merged districts are busy cleaning their houses
and the streets of the yellow, slimy mud and
lebris let behind as unpleasant mementoes of
the greatest flood in fifty years. With
the decreasing perils from the water come the
lurking dangers from weakened foundations,
wnich may overthrow the buildings, and from
the streets and pavements caving in where they
have been undermined. There is grave cause of
apprehension from this and ev<-ry precaution
should be taken to prevent the disaster. Several
small caveius have occurred in different pori •
of the cities, but no accidents are vet reported.
The travel by street cars was resumed tliis
morning between all sections. The Alleghnej .
Pittsburg & Southside railroad is also getting ir.
to shape, and before many luurs all the roads,
it is thought, will be running trains. I'itt
burg, Ft. Wayne & Chicago road commenced
sending out through the trains this morning.
The relief commitsioners have been hard at
work distributing food and fuel to the needy.
Liberal donations of money, food clothing and
fuel continue pouring ie from the citizens, and
no outside aid wiil be necessary. Mai y families
are still quartered at the public halls, and it
will be several days cefore the houses wi'l be in
a lit condition for their homes.
A DISMAL OUTLOOK.
Wheeling, W. Va., Feb. 7.—Business is still
most totally suspended, and the entire populace
is gathered on the streets watching the slowly
receding Hood. The water has fallen about a
foot, and the weather is cooler. As the waters
recede tne full extent of the devastation becomes
more apparent. Houses are on their sides, and
washed to some distance from their sites, or en
tirely carried away. Barns and stables are col
lected in great masses wherever a barrier inter
poses to hold them. One or two of
the oily bridges are endangered, and
two over Caldwell's run are carried away. The
waters ieach from hid to hill at the south *nd
and at many places near the city the river ie a
lake from one to three miles wide. No railroad
traffic within ten miles of the city. People _re
camped on the hill tips, besides those accommo
dated in churches, schools, markets and many
private stores. The blaat furnaces are chilled
in many cases by the water reaching the fires.
The Baltimore & Ohio engine chops
are carried away. Main street bridge over
Jonathan's run, north of vVheeli_ig,caved ia this
afternoon, and a boy sank w.th it, but was
saved. Two unknown men were upset at the
head of the isiaud from a skiff, ard clucg to the
willows for two hours, a crowd watching but
powerless to save them. Wheeling is in danger
of a famine, as nearly all the bakeries and many
of the groceries are beneath the water. A milk
stipp'y and all cut meats, except salt meats, it is
alu.ost impossible to procure, and the stock of
provisions is rapidly becoming exhausted, with
no prospect of replenishing The situation is
hourly growing gra c, and many appeals are
received from the inundated pane of the sur
rounding country for provisions. Nothing in
the report that the island bridge has gone aud
no lives are keevvn to be lost.
NO FLOOD YET.
Toledo, Feb. B.—Advices from up river
points to-day, report the water about up to the
flood mark of last year, but there is no genera!
break op of tbe ice at this city. The water ie
about three feet above the ordinary stage and
stationary. A large tug is employed breaking
the ice in front of the city and up and down the
river, to facilitate the flow lakeward and
prevent goiges when the final
break occurs. There seems to be no immedi
are danger, and thus far no damage to bridges
or other property at this point. The usual de
struction »o bridges, bams and farm property
upon the subme'ged lowlands up rivir is re
