Nohwich, Conn., Sept. 27. -While
rowing in the pouring rain of Monday af
ternoon on Mwsajeag course, on the Thames
river, half-way between this city and New
London, Frank Craudall, a Montville lad,
had a rare adventure. Hounding a wood
ed promontory he s.w )ut abai of him a
great bird In the water furlouaty laahingthe
waves with It wings. Ha pulled rnpldlf to
tbe spot and fotind it waa an eagle strug
gling to rise, wtlle some object in tbe river
kept it down. As the place was near tbe
shore and tho water shallow Crandall
leaped overboard and attempted to capture
Adeaperabs struggle ensued. The eagle
truck at him with its wings and beak, utter
ing shrill erics, while It vainly endeavored
to extricate it. talons from the object that
bald it to tho water. At last tbe lad threw
himself on the bird, hearing It under water
and tben flung it into the boat, clambering
in and falling upon It. Still the eagle
fought bard, hut Crandall threw a plere of
sail cloth over it and suiwciIimI in winding
stout anchor rope around lis Ires. Then
tbe lad examined his capture and saw thai
each of the eaglo's talona was deeply Im
bedded In the buck of a large blui fMi.
In the con flirt with the boy the bird had
beat the flati lnb an almost shapeless pulp,
buttheiharp claws, were still tlglulv fixed
lit Its backbones. It Is supposed that the
eagle descended Into a lare, closely-huddled
school of blue8sb, and, contrary to its
Intentions, atrtiok two fish Instead of nne.
The double capture waa a too heavy haJ.
last for an easy rlae, and In the struggle
the eagle's wing became soaked with wa
ter and then escape was Impossible. Cran
dall took his bird home alive and ha It now
on exhibition. It measures six feet from

Nkw Yokk, Sept. 27. A cable dispatch
to the Herald from Condon says: "Our
special correspondent, who has Just re
turned from Madeira, sends tbe following
communication, dated Fauchal, September
15, about the doiDg ot Mr. Stanley on the
Congo. He says Lieutenant Van de Velde,
a Relgian, who left Stanley three weekt ago
and is now on hia way borne, being an
invalid, arrived here Irom tbe west coasi
of Africa to-day by the Portnguese
steamer Angola, bound for Lisbon,
anil sailed again almost Im

the details of (be blgb-banded action of the
French at Loitngo, and of the destruction of
a place on the coast called Manlpomba, in
correctly spoken of as Loango in a recent
telegram. Manipomba Is, or rather was, a
village containing about 300 Inhabitants.
About a month ago tbe uathres were disa

who was given to understand Uiat be mutt
either yield at once or he would have his
village burned down. Terrified by the
threat the king consented, but did so only
tinder protest, aud showed alacrity to firi

the French commander, with what at this
distance certainly looks like unjustifiable
barbarity, determined to repeat the Tarna

the village of Manlpomba destroyed, and
