Dknnmvii.i.e, Capo May cotinty, N. J.,
March 13, 1871. Again has Cape May he
come the scene of considerable excitement,
very much similar to that which oocnrred in
oar midst pome two weeks since. Then the
cause wan the breaking np of a lawless gang,
egaicst six of whom sufficient evidence of
guilt was obtained to warrant their incarcera
tion in the County Jail. This time the ovine
is the breaking out and escape ef Facemyer,
the ringleader of the gang, and Abe Garrison,
whose reputation is almost as kad. We had
hoped that by this time, in connection with
an eooount of their escape, we should also be
able to chronicle their rearrest, bat np to this
time the most vigilant search has failed to
discover their retreat, or the direction they
have taken, if they have at all managed to
leave the connly. The time and manner
of their escape are as follows: On Thursday
evening last, at about 845 o'clock, as the
night guard entered the jail yard to take his
position, he discovered in the darkness a man
loitering near, and upon hailing him the fel
low ran off. Not having yet armed himself,
he Btarted for the keeper's r-om for his gun,
when another came np from nnder the wall of
the prison, and also made off. This proved
to be Facemyer, and he made his escape in
his tinder-clothes. Upon examination it was
found they had dug out nnder the wall, after
having removed a portion of the floor of the
cell for that purpose. The other prisoners
fry they managed this by heating the stove
I lute red hot, and with it burning
off the planks, and then prying them
np with part of a, claw-bar which
they found in the building. The alarm was
immediately given, Denniaville being aroused
about 11 o'clock by the ringing of bells and
the firing of guns, but little could be done
until the dawn of Friday morning, when
numbers engaged in searching the woods and
by-roads, hoping to gain some trace of the
whereabouts of the fugitives. Sheriff Steel
man offers $125 for their delivery at the
County Jail, or $100 for Facemyer and $25
for Garrison. It was ascertained that they
had been at home, supplied themselves with
clothing and money, bid their families good
bye, and departed. A letter was leftjby them
in the jail, bidding all farewell, adding that
they would leave a car key belonging to the
West Jersey Railroad Company where it could
be found, also a lot of tools belonging to one
Vanzilder. It is evident they felt sure of
making a final escape.

An uuueual noise in the direction or the lions' ago
attracted Fop's attention just he was starting
towards them with tlieir meat. The spectacle that
met his gaze was appilllng.
The beasts were standing uprigui, taeir ciaw
grasping tbe upper bars or their cages, their jaw
extended, and their eyeballs glowing. The cages
are made with heavy iron railing doors, that a'e
lifted from tbe bottom. The soor on the lions' cage
was unbolted at the top. in tueir anger the Uus
were never known to place their paws under the
railitg. always grasping It at tbe top.

Tbe we'gbt or the lioness, which had h ld of tne
upper part or the door, brought It down with a crash,

The liberated lion dashed round the room with
tail erect and bristling inane. Fop raced linn and
shouted for help. Jen. Davis, a brave colored m m.
who cleans the cages, was tne nrst to rusn to Tay

Now la our time," said Jen. Davis, as he sprang
to tbe window and grasped tbe lion by the tail, close
to tbe animal's body. Fop Taylor followed
np tbe attack by seizing tbe beast by the haunches,
air. La Foirest moDiited the window sill and show
ered heavy blows on the brute's skull, and stunned
hltu for a minute. Taking advantage of this, the
tbiee men dragged the beaut back to his cage.
At this juncture Mr. William A. Lildendahl, su
