CAPT.AlN PICKLEi, SEA SNAKE. ;
Eager Men Searching Jersey's Beach tor the
Flirting Being of the Deep.
GLOUCESTER, N. J., Sept. 20.-Crowds
of people -have come here anxicus to se,
the sea serpent that chased Captain PIcklec
in Howell's Cove on Friday evening. At
an early hour yesterday every sail and row
boat in Gloucester and Kaign's P. nt I
been chartered and scores of white-winged .
craft sailed down fron the city. The ob
jective point of these boats was llo-vell'
Cove and vicinity, and the hope that ani
mated most of their occupants was the hope"
of killing cr at least seeing the
monster. Many of the people who went
out in the sailboats took rities and shot
guns wit! them, and many of them carried
long boat hooks and old rusty harpoons.
At one time the broad expause of water be
low Gloucester was fairly alive with boats.
Some continued the search beow Chesser,
but'att dark they all retui-ned without hav
ing been rewarded with even a gflimpse of
his snakeshtip. Captain Eekley, of the
yacht Lily, who saw the serpent below the
mouth of the Schuylkill, on Saturdayv
morning, started out in search of him earlyv
yesterday morning and had not returned at
a late hour last night. When he left he e'x-'
pressed the intention of going as far as the
Bregwater. The 31arine Exchainge was.
ck -l yesterday, so it could not be learned
whether any of the crews which ceime up
the river yesterday had miet the monster or
not. Captain Pickle was plied all day long
'with aunestions, and as he is now regarded
as a-sort of hero he was oblige-d to refuse I
more invitations to "take 7uthin' " than he
probably ever before re'ceived. Ihis old
spy-glass was in constant demand, as was
every other spy-glass in Gloucester. Iron -
side bar was under scrutiny as long as the
light lasted, antd every owner of a spy-glas
was surrounded by a group of' curious peo
ple as long as he would consent to sean thec
.p8cal Agent Sloan's Observations.
Mr. Sloan took a trip up the Asiey
river yesterday, golag as far as Lamb's. on
the South Carolina railway, nud1( thence up.
the east bank of the river on horseb-acak. ,1
MIr. Sloan reports that most of nt child
mansions and historic places up the river
have been destroyed. 'Mhidleton .tal" is
badly injured, whule Dr. Bakher's hanzdso'met
old 2nglish house and the Cohen place are
hopeless wreeks. At the Cohen pkee ain'
old pixbp which had been baried in a well
for years was forcer4 four feet three inches
above the surface of theo ground.
31r. Sloan also di'cc,-ereu, between
Lamb's and Ten MIile Hill, a iarge hole in
which several small pine trees have been
engulfed. The hole is thirty-one feet long
at its loingest point and twenty feet broad.
Whe irst discovered it is sail to have
been about nten feet in depth. It has
sine'flled up with ;oft. oozy mudI, and is
now onlv-about five feet docp. ..
3Ir. Sloan left for Augusta iast meiht.
having- receivedi orders from Wanshincw~n
to examine the conntry between Augusta
and ohnnbia in order to a-(rtamn whether
there have been anyr changes tie-e in the
