Uou GAkkoriso. Two Irishmen were at
tacked on Second street, about midnight of
Saturday, by two garroters in the presence
of a third party, who was neutral and who
finally ran away. The robbers demanded
their money. On their refusal to give it
op, a fight ensued when one of the cut
throats stabbed one of the Irishmen in the
face, how badly we could not learn; The
police were on hand and succeeded in ar
resting the villian who did the stabbing,
His name is P. A. Venson. The other rob

Xsw Music. The great successes of Root &

succession. An advertisement in our col

by the senior partner of the firm, Mr. Geo.
F. Root, which is intended as a sequel to his
great song " Tramp," the success of which
is perhaps without a parallel in the history
of song writing in this country. Single
orders from one house alone have reached
the enormous number of five thousand
copies. The song announced to-day is pro
nounced by many superior to " Tramp.'

The Murderer, Hugbes In Court
Bis Personal Appearance!
He Waives Examination !

CARR IS DISCHARGED 1
Examination not Concluded!
But to be Resumed To-day!
Til announcement that the Bod ford wife
murderer, Sr. John W. Hughes, would be
examined before Juttice Kolbe on Saturday
morning, drew a Urge crowd to the iteps
and windows of the Court House, and the
street corn era, mil eager to see the man who
has gained a sadden notoriety by no means
enviable. The prisoner, his wrists mana
cled, walked with elaatio tread from the
jail to court-room Ho. 2, at nine o'clock, bat
he looked pale and care-worn. The officers
who had him in charge, for a moment or
two could not unlock the door of the room,
and the Doctor manifested a good deal of
nenroasness as the crowd seethed around
him, as if apprehensive that they might
The prisoner is a very good looking man,
and a phrenologist orphysiognomiat would
never spot him as an eaaily-ipade or possi
ble murderer. He appears to be about thir
ty or thirty-five years of age, studs erect,
a powerfully-built man of five feet ten
inches in height, with a good head on his
shoulders and a face which bears the mark
of intelligence and resolution. His hair,
which is not plentiful, is black, and he
wears a becoming moustache and goatee.
His eyes are very large and full and of a
bine color, not quite clear, but somewhat
muddy. His face wears naturally a florid
aspect ; his neck is large, and the base of
his head is well developed, and, in fine,
everything of and about him betokens that
he is a good sound animal.
When he speaks, no matter how briefly,
he Impresses you as one who weighs his
words well, and there is that in his every
attitude, motion and speech, which sug
gests that he could, on occasion, be a man
of courteous manners and elevated conver
sation. The prisoner, through the advice of W.
S. Herrnish, Esq., his counsel, waived ex
amination, and was returned to jail. The
Court adjourned to meet at ten o'clock for
the preliminary examination of Oscar S.
Russell and Ori Carr, who were embraced
in the common indictment for murder on
which Dr.Hughes was arraigned.
Long before that hour Court-room No. 3
was crowded in every part. A large num
ber of Bedford people were in attendance.
The prisoners were brought in. II. -S. Cas
tle, Esq., and Judge Andrews appeared as
counsel for defendants, and C. W. Palmer
Esq., the Prosecuting Attorney, for the
State. Mr. Castle at once stated that they
were prepared to admit the main facts "3
the case, and merely wished the prosecu

ants with the affair.
A score or more of witnesses having been
duly sworn, J. S. Ely was called to the

his object in speaking to me "was to obtain
a paper from Tamzen, promising that she
would never trouble nim any more." lie

the bank. 1 told nim we did not want any
of his money ; there were no ties between
them and Tamzen was not his wife ; that all
we wanted was that he should let na alone.
About that time Mr. Robinson, a lawyer.
came along in a wagon. Witness asked him
to stop, when she gave him an account of
what had passed. Witness and Miss Par
sons got into his wagon; stopped fifteen
minutes to hear what Hughes had to say.
Dr. told him he wanted Tamzen lo give
him papers. Mr. Robinson told him he
needed no papers, that she would never
trouble him. Witness asked Hughes to tell
Robinson all. He stated that he loved
Tamzen, and wanted to take her aw ly. He
said he would take her if he had to make
himself liable in so doing. We then went
to our house with Mr. Robinson. Btaid at
the house an hour and a half, and then wit
ness' husband took them all to Bedford vil
lage. Got out at the crossing of Main and
Warrensviile roads in Uedlord. Witness

men to come on, pointing in to the carriage
as if to have tbem ooiue and arreat the

carriage as it waa leaving the village, and
recognized Dr. Hughes ; it went slow and
stopped often ; saw a man run up behind

the Doctor ; got a horse and joined the
pursuit with Mr. Scott ; out a mile or so saw
a man get out of the parriage and run to
the woods ; Scott was ahead, caught up
with the carriage and demanded them to

with them to Bedford. Defendants were
both on the box. Witness kept on to New
burgh to arouse the officers there.
At this point Judge Andrews wished to
ask the Prosecutor if there were aught in
the testimony to show that the defendant,
Mr. Carr, should be held on the common
charge of murder in the first degree. The
Prosecutor did not deem it his duty to in
sist that Mr. Carr should be held. Mr,
Carr was accordingly discharged.'
Charles A. Ennis, sworn: 1 am constable
of Bedford. Heard of the murder about
half-past two o'clock Wednesday r. n. Saw
defendant, Rusaell, in sitting room of hotel.
The parties, Russell and Carr, were given
into the charge of witness. I searched
them, but found only two ordinary knives
on their persons.
Charles Hull, sworn : I am bar-tender at
the Fountain House. Dr. Hughes came in
to the bar-room, asked if I had any beer,
and went out, before the murder was com
mitted. Russell was in bar-room all the
time. The driver soon came in and said
there had been a fuss hi the street, aud has
tened Russell to the carriage and drove off
in such a hurry that Russell hadn't time to
get in at first, but ran along and finally
Ori Carr, sworn : I have lived in Cleve
land a year and a half, and have been a
hack driver. Last Tuesday night my car
riage was standingatthe corner of Superior
and Bank streets, facing the Park. I got
asleep on the seat and about ten o'clock
Russell came along, waked me up and said,
"Here is Bug," (a niek name of mine). 1
got down when he introduced me to Dr.
Hughes. I asked them if they wanted a
carriage. Tbey said yes, and jumped in,
first asking if I knew where they could find
some girls. I drove to Jim Brown's saloon,
where we had some beer. Failing at several
places to find women, Russell said he knew
where to go to get some girls in the country, j
Huehes asked me: "How much will you I
eharge to drive to Bed lord." 1 answered
"Ten dollars." We started np Kinsman
street, but presently Hughes said,''Tske the
Newburgh road," and I crossed over to
Pittaburgh street. We got to the Cataract
House in newburgh about 11:45, roused the
landlord, took drinks and cigars, and left
for Bed ford. When out three miles or so.
Hughea raid "he didn't know whether to
go and see the girls that night, or go to the
hotel and call on tnem in the
morning on the way back to Cleveland.
He decided to go to the hotel in Bedford,
and we soon reached the Franklin House.
My order was to get up at six o'clock and
have them called to breakfast at 0:45; the
next morning 1 got np before six, but they,
though called three times, did not arise to
eat break last till alter seven ; all took I
drink and cigars, and left for Cleveland
After going a few rods Hughes ordered me
to take the lelt-nand road ; went down
about a mile and stopped beside the
road in front of Mr. Crumb's house, op
posite that of Mr. 1-arsons: a boy in Mr.
Parsons' yard shouted out: "She isn't
home gone blackberrying.'' ; I got
down and sprawled in the i grass,
and next noticed Hughes in the door of Mr.
Parsons' bouse; he soon came back, and we
drove on down the Warrensviile road; had
gone a mile when we met two women with
pails of berries; I said to Hughes, " I gueae
tnese are your women ; ne called to Mrs.
Parsons, got out and followed them; I could
not hear their conversation ; presently
Hughes came back, and we drove to the
Plank Road House and called for beer; not
having any, we went to the store opposite,
where we drank fifteen or twenty times each;
hid and spilt mine for a while, but when
they diaeovered it, I made an exeuse to go
out; a Dutchman came in, and they made
him drink fourteen glesaee ef beer ; while
here they agreed to drive to Rocky River,
but could not decide upon the route : we
drove toward Bedford, and when opposite
Mr. Parsons' house, Haghes said to Russell:
"Let's go over to Persona"'; Russell ob
jected, aa he did not know any of them ; a
woman came down to the gate, and told
Hughes that " all of Parsons' folks had
gone to town, and to arrest him"; we drove
back to the crossroad, on our way to Cleve
land, when Hughes proposed that we go to
Fountain House and have a drink ; Mr.
Crumb and Russell were in the carriage; as
Hughes got out he met Mr. Parsons in the
road, and asked him in to drink ; Russell
T Ant intn 111 j h&r-rfmm An1 ITnahM
me in in a moment, and -asked the bar- I
koxjier if he had any beer;
h. 11... I
stepped out; after waiting several moments
went out, and saw tne people rushing
through the street in great commotion. I
ran aown to see wbat was ibe matter,
thinking there must be a fight I heard a
boy say, "Dr. Hughes has shot her." I
ran back to the tavern in great excitement,
told Raaeell that there was a fuss in the
street and Hughee had shot some one,
and then got on the carriage. Russell got
in and I drove towards Cleveland, and
when we had got to Columbus street,
Hughes wss there brandishing his revol
ver, and keeping off the crowd. He
told me me to drive on. The crowd shouted
far me to stop. Hughes presented hie pis
tol threatened to shoot me if I didn't
drive on. I thought it was better to drive
forward than to be shot, and so went ahead.
The rest of his testimony merely eon
firms the statements of the other witnesses'
and we, therefore, omit it. While Mr. Carr
was yet in the witness box. Dr. Hughes was
summoned into court as a witness. When
he advanced within the room, Mrs. Par
sons, mother of the deceased, screamed and
nearly swooned away. When Mr. Carr had
completed his testimony, Dr. Hughes was
duly sworn, and took the witness chair,
and after some discussion aa to thelegali'y
of bis appearing aa a witness, testified as
About nine o'clock Tuesday night I was
in the St. Nicholas saloon, when Russell
came in and we drank several times to
gether, there, at Bradley's, and at the
Weddell Houae. We got intoxicated, and
finally Rusaell said, "If we coal d find
'Bag' I think we would have a drive."
" Where T" I aaked. "Oh, any where," Jie
replied, "to find some women." We found
"Bug," and after an unsuccessful drive to
find women, I propoaed that we go to the
country and find some.
; X had nodefinite f lace in view in the coun
try where women might be found. Russell

Russell did not know that I was going to
commit the murder, for I did not know it
myaelf until Miss Parsons passed the car

sight, I should not have thought of her
again. Russell knew nothing uf the affair,

But to be Resumed To-day! THE LOSS OF THE PEWABIC
Fall Particulars of tha Accident.
BUteme-Uof Passengers dOihers.
Incidents and Heroic Deeds.
A Meeting of the Survivors.
As the loss of the steamer Pewabic is now
the all-absorbing subject of thought and
feeling with large numbers of our readers,
we re-produce from the Detroit A dverliner
the following account of the great disaster
On Wednesday night about half past 8
o'clock, the.fine propeller Pewabic, Captain
George McKay, on her way down from Lake
Superior to this port,when abreast of Thun
der Biy Island and about six miles from
the l'ght,collided with the propeller Meteor
Captain Wilson, upward bound, by which
therewabic was immediately sunk. The
evening was a tolerably clear one, although
it had been somewhat rainy, and the lights
of each steamer were di crnable by tbe
other at the distance of six miles. A mode
rate breeze prevailed and the water was
rough. The course ef the Pewabic was on
the aide towards the shore, and that of the
Meteor on th eopposite tack, by which they
would steer clear ot eacn otner. i ne move-
meats of each steamer were plainly observ
ed by the crew as well as passengers upon
the other, and the fact of their coming to
gether under such circumstances cannot be
explained except on the hypothesis of an
almost unaccountable blunder on the part
of some one. When uaptain McKay saw
that a collision was evidently inevitable, he
blew hia whiatle as a signal to the other boat
to keep out of the way, which signal, so far
as is known, was not responded to. lie then
Wi'fViS'wouia Bnd to'pu't her out of danger
by taking his boat farther in towards tbe
shore, r rom all we can gather, it is render
ed probable that the wheelsman of the Mo
teor, not having properly understood his
orders, or by mistake of some kind put his
wheel to port, instead of contrary direction,
which he ought to have taken. He thus
brought his bow in a direct line with the
port side of the Pewabic, and tbe fact of
striking the latter so squarely in tbe side
would seem to confirm this theory of the
catastrophe; although it is possible that a
full investigation may present the ailair in
a different phase so fares some particulars
are concerned. The bows of the Meteor,
which are long and sharp, struck the 1'ewa-
bicalmost at right angles under the pilot
house, opening ber to the width of twelve or
fifteen feet, and cutting her down to the
water's edge. There were probably at least
ISO persons on board, ncludug the crew,
and consternation and dismay at oaoe fell
like pa sy upon hearts which only S few brief
moments beioreovernowed wun mirtn and
gladness. Tbe scene was one which beg
gars description, but waa soon over. Within
four minutes of tbe collision the Pewabio
sank, carrying down with her from 75 to 100
persons, as nearly as the number can be es
timated. Many of those on the bows ot the
ill fitted steamer had the presence of mind
tojumpon the deck of the Meteorjotherswere
saved from drowning by the hero.e exer-
tionsof friends, and many were subsequent
ly picked up by the boats of the Meteor. As
there were two or three sail vessels in tbe
neighborhood, it is possible that a few of
those now numbered among the lost have
been picked up by them, but as the Meteor
remained near tne scene oi tne disssterto
pick up all thateould be found, this is like
hoping against nope.
Inssmucft as the statements below com
prise full accounts of the terrible affair, we
need add but little more. Mr. L. L.
McKnight, one of the proprietors of the
line, manifested great courage and pre
sence of mind, saving the lives of a number
If the accident nad occurred a lew Hours
later, nearly all would have been wrapped
in sleep, and very few would have been
spared to recount the leer ml tale.
The following is a statement mae by Mr.
Russell, the Secretary of tbe meeting of the
survivors, held on tbe Monawk, wmcn
steamer brought them down to the city,
STATEMENT OF MR. RUSSELL.
At about 8Jon Wednesday evening, Sib
lnst., the propeller Pewabic, Uapt. McKay,
her down trip, about eight miles from
shore, came in collision wita. the Meteor,
Capt. Wilson, on her upward voyage. Tbe
Meteor struck the Pewabio just under tbe
pilot hoase, literally smashing up her bow.
The boats were running at the rate of about
twelve miles per hour, and the crash was
awfui, causing tne rewabio to go down in
the short space of three or four minutes.
number were killed by the crashing tim
bers. But few of the passengers of the
Pewabio had time to jump from her decks
upon those of the Meteor, ere tbe wreck of
tbe Pewabie sank entirely out of sight be
neath the seething waters. The sight was
terrible and heart-rending as the cries and
groana of the unfortunate passengers rose
upon the rolling swells ol tbe surging bil
lows. The life boats of the Meteor were
lowered, and a number saved from watery

We are unable to ascertain the number of
lives lost; aaneer-aa it can be estimated it
supposed to be about 70.
The Meteor remained near wbere- the
wreck sank until morning, in order to pick
the floating bodies. The Mohawk pass

Several nobleand heroic incidents occur-

ticular. The most memorable of which
was performed by Mies Ada Brush, (daugh
ter of E. A. Brush, Esq, of this city). This
", "J uer cooi anu determined tlT.rts,
.lot only saved her own life by expert
swimming, but that of Mrs. 0. M. Wright,
whose husband was drowsed with a lady
clinging to hia neck. Miss Brush saw Mrs.
Wright struggling in the water some dis
tance from her, and with great presence of
mind she swam to ber rescue, pushed a
floating spar np to her, and thus saved her
from the terrible fate of her beloved hus
band. The manifestation of such fortitude
bn the part of this lady, will be ever re
mem oered by those who were witneesesof
the terrible catastrophe. Mrs. L. L. Mc
Knight, of this city, and others whose
names have not some to hand, also display
ed a spirit of determination seldom wit
nessed. - Caps. McKay was one of the Isat upon
the wreck, and upon leaving the sinking
vessel, of which he was so proud, he saved
the life of Miss James, of New York. Mr.
Cleveland, the mate, worked to the last,
and cut loose one of the life-boats justse
the ill-fated Pewabie went down. Ha wss
also one of the last on board.
Mr. McKnight did not leave the wreck
until he was taken up by one of the crew
and thrown upon the deck of the Meteor,
The affable and ready clerk Mr. Cbariea
A. Mack was one of the first in tbe life
boat, and would not rest until he had ren
dered all tha aid that was possible. He
saved the engineer before the boats were
got into the water.
STATEMENT OF OBADIAH C. WOOD.
This morning we called upon Mr. Oba
dish C Wood, a colored man, residing at
213 Congress street, who occupied the posi
tion of barber on board the ill-fated Pewa
bic. He makes the following statement:
About half-past 8 or 8 o'clock on Wednesday
night, while off Thunder Bay Island, and
several miles ahead, we deacried the Meteor
coming up; it waa raining at the time, yet
the night was very bright ; the passengers
all went forward to see tne Meteor ap
proaeh; it soon became evident that she
would collide with us: the passengers be
came frightened and ran to the after part of
tne rewabio tor salety ; uapt. Mcnay gave
orders to have hia helm put a-port, and the
rewebic bad just commenced to swing
when the Meteor, whose helm had been put
to starboard, ran into us, strvking.ua almost
squarely in the vioinity of the pilot house,
and cutting us down to the water's edge;
the confusion among the passengers at this
time was indescribable; tbey were perfect
ly panic stricken; many escaped by jump
ing on board tne Meteor, while tne balance
went down witn the wreck, wbicn sank in
less than five minutes after the collision ;
some of the persons employed on the Pewa
bic, who had retired, escaped to the Meteor
witn nothing on but tber night clotnes.
Both boats were going at full speed ; I was
standing in the saloon door when the Me
teor struck us ; I ran to the after part of the
boat and intended to jump on board the
Meteor, but found the distance too great to
make the attempt ; I then got on the hurri
cane deck, witn the same object in view.
but had scarcely rescbed that place be
fore tbe Pewabic made a fearful lunge
forward and sank ; I was thrown for
ward with great violence and struck against
the smoke pipe, and the next instant lound
myself in the lake among portions of the
wreck, tbe cabin having broken to pieces
I swam to a life boat that I saw partially
drifting and attempted to get iDto it, but
was washed on by a heavy sea and carried
towards the Meteor ; entangled in the bul
warks of tbe latter steamer, was the broken
flagstaff of the Pewabic, to which I clung
until rescued by a rope being let down
from the Meteor ; Captain McKay, of the
fewaoic, remained perfectly cool and col
lected, doing nia utmost to rescue the pas
sengera, oj preventing a panic, lowerin
the boats, etc., but as his steamer went
down so quick he waa unable to do as muc
ss be otherwise would have done. The
Meteor remained all night in the vicinity
01 tne catasiropne, ana picked up tbose of
tbe survivors who were au .at on portion
of tbe wreck. About 6 o'clock Tnuraday
morning the propeller Mohawk came along
and the rescued paaaengera and those of
the crew who were saved, were trans
ferred and brought to this oity ; nathin
was saved Iront the Pewabic.
MEETING OF THE SURVIVORS.
A meeting waa called on board the Mo
hawk for the purpose of drafting resolutions
reepecting tne oiuceraand orew ol tbe re
wabic and Mohawk, and in relation to the
friends of those who perished on the terri

NARROW ESCAPE OF THE EXPRESS MESSENGER.
Mr. John Lynch, the steward of the Pe
wabic, whe was also express messenger,
went down into his office, and while at
tempting to unlock his safe, with a view of
taking out the valuables entrusted to his
care, the steamer went down. The water
closed in about him, but by the moat super
human exertions, he managed to escape
turougu a window, ana was subsequently
rescued, nearly exhausted, and taken on
board tne Meteor.
CARGO OF THE PEWABIC.
The following is a description of the ear-
go of the Pewabic whioh went down with
the ship: 131 tons copper from Qmncv
mine; a tons copper irom Ontonagon; 25
tons copper iron uentral mine ; 65 tons cop
per from Smelting Works ; 1 ton copper
from Smith k Harris ; 170 gross tons iron

We find in the Toledo Blade the following

Mr. C. J. Porter, of Elyria, one of the sur
viving pasaengers, concerning the rescue of

whom were carried down at the sinking of

gling in the water, nearly exhausted, and
after the most vigorous exertions waa saved
from a watery crave. Tbe sympathy ex
hibited for the little fellow, who could
scarcely realise his lonely condition, eaused
considerable discussion there were so
many who desired the privilege of
giving him a permanent home. All recog
nized that Capt, McKay, of the Pewabic,
and the Captain of the Mohawk possessed
the strongest title, and both wanted him,
and it was left to them to decide which
should take him. The Captain of the Mo
hawk claimed that, as the reacuer of the
lad, he had the best right to him, and Pro
vidence having thrown him into his hands.
he should see that he was kindly cared for,
educated, and prepared for usefulness in
life.' To this Capt. McKay acceded, and all
believe that the lad has fallen into tha
hands of one who is eminently worthy of so
important a trust. The lad does not know
that he has a relative living.
