TI'KKDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1865.
EXCITEMENT ..MONO THE I ..AYERK.
At six o'clock, yesterday morning, the
eryol" "aman overboard," createdquite
a stir anions,' Hie crowd assembled on
Baltimore wharf. Tbe bulk of the gath
ering was composed of the actors of
(Menu's theatre, who were about to em
nark in the City of Richmond for City
Point.and Petersburg. It, seems that a
Mr. John Taylor, a stranger, had slipped
while walking on the gang-plank, and
wi'iil overboard. He disappeared at
once; and Ibis (brew all into the wildest
excitement. Mr. S. W. Glenn, I the pro
prietor of the theatre here and Phoenix
Hall til r.k'isbujg) with the utmost
ooolness, plunged in, to rescue Taylor,
and eanie up on Ihe other side of the
Richmond, having the half famished
countryman In his arms, Hut the crowd
ou the dock were ignorant, yet, of the
fact that Mr. Glenn had conic to the
surface at all; and bis outcries, "throw
over a rope," only served to nuke mat
ten worse ; for by this time "the wlnUe
strength of the company" was eontrlb
iitinglolhe wildest kind of wild confu
sion. Mr. Gallagher ran toward the
stern; Mr. Jerry Taylor examined the
paddle house; Mr. Itoscno said he could
sec Mr. Glenn "with his little tailor
under fall arm, clinging to a timber of
the dock, beneath him;" .Mr. Kerriscon
soled the ladies with the assurance, that
" both men were lost, and the company
could not go oa;" poor _,ir. Marston.
jolly lace grew long anil red, and like a
great willing boy, he strove to do hi*
hesl, which resulted in his slipping,
himself, from the gangway on to the
fender in the water. Singular as il may
seem, every human being on the dock
and on the steamer, laughed at the mis
fortune of the unhappy comedian, win.
not seeming to think of himself, kept
shotiling lustily, "go away from me
look after Glenn." The offloera of tbe
Blohmond, had long ago taken Mr.
Glenn on board, and also Mr. Taylor,
and upon this becoming known," the
crowd cheered the victims. Nose of the
persons mi tiered other harm than an un
Mirii Ano About Nothimo. Yes
terday morning a young nitin named
.lames Morris an iveil hat. by tlie Bal
timore boat, stepped into the Junaluska
Saloon, kept liy,l. 1.. Weeks, on Wide-
Water street, ordered his breakfast, ami
tendered in payment a s.n United States
Treasury note. Weeks gave ihe pole to
his bar-Keeper to go oul and buy a box
of pigarS in order to change il, he not
having the wherewith in his own
drawer to do so, The bar-keeper called
into N. A. Thompson & Co.'s, ami tr>n
dered the aforesaid note in payment for
a box of I'ltrms which he had; aalaotsd.
The Bote having n suspicious feel, the
clerk iiioU ii to BuTrees, Harrison „
Co.'s, bankers, where it was pronmtnoed
counterfeit. Weeks Immediately hunt
ed up R pollcemi n lo have Morris ar
rested. Officer Bonfentl soon found
Morris, who was totally Ignorant of any
desire to pass counterfeit money, ami
fully s.: i.-iit .1 Ihe officer thai if tne bill
was counterfeit, it was a vi-ry one,
as tbe sequel fully developed.
Mr. Weeks, dissatisfied with tlm judg
ini'iitof tbe I'Hicir in permitting Mor
ris to depart unmolested, made a formal
complain! lo tbe Mayor, A warrant
was issued, ami James Morris was ar
rested and brought int.. Court. Adepts
in the Judgment of money differed in
opinion as lo tlie chaiacter of the bill,
ami to satisfy the Court, Mr. Clark, the
Treasurer of the Pint National Hank,
was summoned lo the stand, who, after
a rigid and careful scrutiny with a Ent
eroscope, pronounced the bill genuine,
and explained to the Court that it was
evident thai Ihe hill had heen wet from
exposure, or carrying it in the pocket,
which took the suing out of tbe paper
ami made it appear and feel flimsy,
thereby looking suspicious, Tlie Mayor
unhesitatingly, after bearing Mr. Clark's
evidence, discharged the aeoosed.

V. lv nn--, a libel liiii. been Hied in tha District Court of
tbe United Mates for thu Dlntrict of Virginia, on thu .'.h
day of November, lHtli, by Joseph Liiueburuar, Mattel ul
the steamer Alabama, ou behalf of hiinselt and others in
ter__tcd, against thuatuatnship Victor, her tackle, apparel,
furniture and cai „., alleging, in uu ..stance :
That the steamer Alabama in a vessel of about n>
thousand and filty tun*, _. aide-wheel steamer of great
power aud strength, and at thu several timet* hereinafter
meulioiied, was statuuh, strong, well and sufficiently ,
manned, tackled, apparelled and furnished, and wad em
ployed in the business of transporting passengers ami
freight between New York aud New i irli .un That th**
steamer Victor was a prupeller, and ut the several tiun _
hereinafter-tated, wu engaged in the businesa of tians
porting passengers and irelght between New York an.l
New Orleans, aud had on board at tho timee hereinafter
mentioned a large and valuable cargo of nierchaniU.t.
-__l"-MIH_H iv value to the sum <>f about two hundred an<t
fifty thousand dollar-, and Maid i-i- amer Victor was of the
value of about one hundred aud twenty thousand dollar*,
ami had also a large number nf putmengertt, to wit: num
bering from thirty-Mix to forty.
That ou Friday, the Lweuty-seventh day of October,
18.il>, while the said ateanu-r Alabama, with her cargo and
pa-sengcrn, «as on a voyage from New Orleans lo New
York, and about IF. fen the day, and when the MM
steamer was in about latitude .W : r -l Worth, aud about two
hundred miles from Cape Jiutlcras, tbe said nt earner Vic
tor wa_ sighted from the Alabama, distant about ten
mi let, on the starboard, and to the eastward with a wigual
of diHti-f-. flyiug, being Union down : that the Alabama
utouco bore away for her, and having renched the Victor,
found her notunder uteani, having set a foresail and top
sail. anJ making very little progress through Ihe water,
and inner then condition quite unable to get into any
That at the time the hwclJ wa. U my from a gale lhat
had prevailed, but othcra ise the weather was moderate,
lhat on checking thi; Victor, her Mastei, Yates, Inform
ed the Master of the Alabama, tbe libellaut, to ths pur
port that his ship was leaking badly. That on Sunday
or Monday, tho _!-M or 23d. her boiler had broke adrift;
that one bad stove the other and burnt It. That this act i
d cut bad occurred on Sunday or Monday, some live or sis
days preceding; that he had but two casks of water lelt,
and had lost or had water stove, and requested to
be taken In tow nt once.
That libellant hailed to ascertain whether he had a
hawser,and directed the end vi one i** be sent ou board
by a line in a boat, which waslh.ne. and the sumu Uiug
made fast, tbe Alabama proceeded wilh the mi id -leant- ■*•
Yictur in tow at about live .. m. of the same day.
That the said Victor was lit. ted considerably to itir
hoard, and from that or othei causes, sawed a great deal,
which, with the swell of the sea, caused a heavy slraiu
upon the Alabama and r end. rtw. her towiug dilVirt.ii —
That tbe Master ol tbe Alabmnn, when he took the haw-
MV from the Vktor, hailed tho Master of the Victor and
asked him to disconnect his propeller, to which he H
ceived the reply that he could not, oft the vessel was nl
ready leaking so badly that he slid nut dare to do it, as it
would increase the leaking of his vessel. That another
hawser was paid out from the Alabama and made fast lo
the Vi. tor tor tbe purpose of enabling her to be kept
more on the tiack of the Alabama. That this haa»er
'J bat the Alabama continued tv tow tbo said Vli tor
from five p. v.of Friday, the twenty seventh of October,
until Sunday following, when, betweeu nine and ten i. m .
she arrive! with her and came to anchor in Hainpt.u
Koads, having towed tier a distance of about two bundled
and fifty miles from where fallen in with, about two hun
dred miles Iroin Cape ll.iU.m- as before stated. Tlmt
after anchoring, Captain Vates, of the Victor, cam. on
board the Alabama. That be requc.ted libellant to lake
the passengers of tbe Victor on board the Alabama und
transport them to New York, which libellant consented
to do,although it was difficult lo do so hum the full con
dition of his own ship.nnd to accomplish which it hecatuu
uecessary to add to hi. supplies, winch huviug been dune.
they were, to the number of thirty-six, brought lata the
port of New York, where the said steamer Alabama ar
rived un the evening ot the thirtieth uf (X tuber. !• _5
That the said steamer Victor was re-rued by the Ala
bama from a situation eminently perilous to the MJM) ot
herself, passengers, CM and cargo, and she could have
hardly lived through the heavy w.alhcr. That her
chances of making land st all Ml WfJ improbable, and
if ii.-ikn...' it iv her disabled condition, must have been
wrecked. That thu services rendered to her were those of
salvage, were promptly, efficiently, skillfully and MM__.
fully performed, and were attended with considerable
stinin to thu Alabama, which vesne) was of the value of
about one hundred thousand dollar", and had on board a
cargo of thu value of about three hundred and ten thou
s did dollars, aud was delayed on her voyage for a period
of two day..
That Ciptaln Yates, of Ihu Victor, when first spoken,
hailed the Alabama to the purport that he would pay
twenty-flv3 thousand dollars to In* taken in tow, which
offer was not, however, absented to nor auiwered by the
Master of the Alabama, kc.
And that they are entitled to a reasonable share of
said vessel aud cargo, lor the salvage thereof; and praying
process against said vessel and cargo and reasonable and
proper salvage,and that the said vessel, her tackle, appa
rel, furniture and cargo, may bu condemned aad MM to
pay such salvage, with costs, charges and expense.
Now, therefoie, in pursuant #ot the in mitfon under the
seal ft. thu said Court, to me directed and delivered. I do
hereby give public notice to all MM dunning the mM
vessel, her tackle, apparel, furniture and< ai ■ at in .ny
manner interested therein, that they be and appear b.fure
the said Distri-i t Court, to be held ut the Court Room, in
the City Hall, in the city of Norfolk, in and for the l>is
