The Old Men. A correspondent says : "In the list pub- lished in your paper August 2d of over 200 persons now living in New Haven who are 80 years of age or over, the names of two notable citizens are not given, viz.: Nathaniel Jocelvo, aged 8.5, portrait painter, and John W. Barber, aged 82, author and engraver. There are doubtless quite a number of other octogenarians in the city in addition, as the list was incomplete, but probably none more notable than the two to whom our correspond ent has kindly called attention. Safe Return. PEBTLOUS EXPERIENCE OF A STAMFOBD BOAT MAN AND A CtAJf DEAXXB AMD TWO WOKE". On Tuesday last four Stamford people Belden Wilmot, a boatman, and Ward Haight, a clam dealer, with his wife and eight-year- old daughter started in a 26-foot sharpie to cross the Sound f oshe purpose of gathering blackberries ana ot pvciung up driftwood. They did not return at night. By Thursday they were thought to have been lost in the quails and thunder storms. - Friday evening, however, they arrived home. It seems that after starting for home, Tuesday afternoon, they were driven back by squalls, and that on Wednesday and Thursday- it was too rough on the Sound to start for home. The sharpie was twice capsized on Tuesday, but its occupants managed each time to themselves. Drowned Off Savin Rock. Carl Dahlmsysr Drowned while Omt Sailing; Seized with Cramps while Swimming to Recover a Boat. Carl Dahlmeyer, a young man of twenty two, formerly in the employ of Mr. M. Kahn, on state street near Chapel, was drowned at about 7 o'clock last evening off Savin Bock. He was out sailing with two or three companions, one of them a brother, in a yacht. They were bound for Savin Bock to attend the evening festivities of the Arion Singing Club of this city, which had its pic nic at the West Haven shore yesterday. Par ticulars were obtained at the Bell telephone office, Mr. Allen operator, from the share, as follows : Their small boat got loose and was rapidly being separated from the yacht. Mr. Dahlmeyer, who was an expert swimmer, divesting himself of a part of his clothing, jumped overboard and swam to the boat and back with it to the yacht. Before it could be securely fastened to the vacht. however, it broke away again and he jumped over again after it. The sea was quite heavy, a brisk wind blowing. This time, however, he had not swam far, when he flung up his hands and sank. He reappeared to view and again flung up his hands and then sank to rise no more. No exertion which the distressed friends on the yacht could make were of anyv avail, and the boat was finally put in for shore to see what could be done in the sad case. The mother and sister of the deceased young man were at the grove awaiting with fond expectation the arrival of the party, and their grief at the receipt of the sad news overwhelmed them. The news in this city brought grief to many, for Dahlmeyer had many friends. A young man stepped into Mr. Kahn's at about eight o'clock, having' returned from a sailing trip made to join Dahlmeyer and party. He had failed to come across them, and the sad news of the death of his friend came upon him with stunning force. He went immediately at summons from the Bock to join in the quest for the body. The deceased had for some months been em- ployed at Mr. Kahn's in his bottling deport ment. He was a genial companion and asso ciate, and had such success in sleight of hand work and feats of mesmerism as to excite considerable attention and interest among his friends who had witnessed his skill. He was at one time employed in the cuisine depart ment of the New Haven House, and for the past three or four weeks had been taking a vacation. The body was recovered late in the even ing, having washed ashore, and was tat en to Hinmau's, and preparations were made to bring it to this city. The deceased resided on State street, near Chapel, over Mr. Kalt- schmidt's. The body upon arrival was token to Bloirs', the undertakers. Another Meriden Drowning Case. Drowned in Black Pond Recovery the Body. ot James Waterman, a young man of eigh teen years, son of A. B. Waterman, of Meri den, went in bathing Sunday afternoon, in company with four or five others, in Black pond in the town. They had a boat among them which they were turning over and di ving under. Young Waterman could not swim, but managed to keep up by holding on to the boat, but finally in some way the boat slipped away from him, and he caught one of his companions around the neck. The lat ter, not knowing that Waterman was unable to swim, cast him off to shirk for himself and to avoid, as he supposed, getting ducked by Waterman. Waterman sank, but the others thought it was only in sport and kept on with their amusement as before. The unfor tunate young man did not rise again, and his companions set to work diving for him, but were unsuccessful after many efforts, and they searched and dragged the neighborhood for three hours without avail. They think that Waterman must have got hit by the boat and rendered faint, and that that caused him to grasp his companion. The body was found at last by Mr. Harvey Perkins, who touched it on the bottom with a long pole after many efforts, and then dove for it, bringing it up. The affair, following so soon after the drowning of young Lewis, was spe cially sorrowful. The deceased worked for his father, driving a milk team. He was athletic and healthy, a faithful son and a great help on the farm. The place of the drowning is near the farm, a dreary, forsa ken looking spot in a deep notch between the mountains, and is called Black pond from -the dark sombre hue of the waters. An Incendiary Fire. An incendiary fire occurred in Plainville about 1:30 Sunday, in the house formerly owned by Hills & Strickland, across the cov ered bridge. The house was lately bought by Winslow Lewis. It had for some time been occupied by Mr. Eddy. It was entirely destroyed. The house was insured for $6,000 and Mr. Eddy had an insurance of $1,000 on his furniture. This is the fifth time Mr. Eddy has been burned out. Garfield and Arthnr.

Mrs. Martha Bradley, an aged lady who for a long time has been an inmate of the alms house, died very suddenly yesterday morning of heart disease, aged seventy-seven years. one retired as well as usual on the evening previous, and when the matron called her yesterday morning she found that she did not answer. On entering her room it was found that she was dead, although her body was stul warm. The town doctor, who was pres ent, made an examination, and gave the cause of death as above stated.

The funeral of Mrs. Edward McGowan took place yesterday morning from St. Pat rick's church, a solemn high mass of requiem being celebrated by Bev. Father Slocum. Father Fitzpatrick paid a glowing tribute to the virtues of the deceased, alluding in feel ing terms to her long residence in New Ha ven, she having lived for forty-one years in this city, and spoke of her being one of the worshipers under the tent when there was no church edifice here, and also said she was member of the first Catholic choir in the city. other members of the same choir being pres ent and assisting in the funeral services yes terday. The services were unusually solemn and impressive, and the pastor's words brought tears to the eyes of manv of those present who remembered the deceased for hef kindly and loving disposition.

Alderman Hol- comb (acting Mayor) was m the chair but when the roll was called it revealed the fact that no quorum was present, and the meeting was adiourned. subiect to the call of the Mayor or acting Mayor.

General indignation prevails among the up town owners of dogs over the operations of a dog poisoner in that section Sunday. Eight dogs were poisoned in all a black-and-tan owned by Sheriff Stone, John Eckel's Scotch terrier valued at $25, a Newfoundland owned by Mr. Henrv Fierberth, a black-and-tan be longing to Horace Stoddard, a valuable bird dog owned by Mead & Brennan, and two other dogs whose owners are unknown. An examination of the stomach of Sheriff Stone's dog disclosed the presence of a piece of meat containing strychnine. It is probable that this was the agent used in all the cases, at though none of the poisoned meat has been found about the streets. If the poisoner can be found out he will be prcsecuted. Bridge port Farmer. Police Notes. George E. Baldwin lives at No. 1 Factory street, and David Ashmun does business as a grocer at the corner of George and Factory streets. There was a hole through Baldwin's fence where parties were in the habit of pass. ing. ,Mr. Baldwin, objecting to this, nailed up the fence. As is alleged, Ashmun pulled off the boards and Baldwin nailed them on again, assuring Ashmun that if he pulled them off again he would "thrash" him. Ash mun pulled them off, and last evening Bald win fulfilled his part of the contract by giv ing Ashmun a severe beating. Baldwin then went to the police office and surrendered him self, and Isaac Rosenberg gave bonds for his appearance before the City Court. Later Ash mun, with Attorney Arvine, appeared at the police office to make complaint. Later still it was reported that Ashmun was seriously in jured. Contract Awarded. The Aldermonic committee on lamps held a meeting in the ante-room of the Aldermens' chamber yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock to decide upon the bids for painting the naptha lamps. It will be recollected that the lowest bids were by Porter & Goldsmith and E. B. Davis, each bidding 13 cents per lamp. The committee deferred the award from last Fri day in order that they might ascertain the responsibility of both parties. Having satis fied themselves that both were responsible they adopted the method of awarding the con tract by lot as the most fair way, and it fell to Porter & Goldsmith. Colonel Healey, clerk of the committee, asked for leave of absence for one week, which was granted. During the Colonel's ab sence his place will be filled by another who will look after the city's interests as inspector of lamps. Oyster Beds in liong Island Sound. The mouth of the Quinnipiac river in Long Island Sound, the eastern boundary of New Haven, has long been ' a famous place for oysters. The seals used to come there to catch them. Then the Quinnipiac Indians came and drove the seals away. The white men came after the Indians, and not only drove these away, but ate up the oysters also, so that when New York grew big and the bivalves became high in price, resort was had to their artificial' cultivation. The best and most famous of these New Haven oyster beds was at i air Haven, the eastern part of New Haven, and Fair Haven oysters still have a high reputation m Jlew York. When the oyster beds became exhausted the oystermen used to go to the Delaware and the Chesa peake, buy small planting oysters from the bars of these bays and plant them on staked territory. Latterly the custom has tended towards-4he purchase of well grown Chesa peake oysters, whieh were put down on the private grounds of Fair Haven and elsewhere in the Sound to "plump" and fatten, and be token up as use required. The new oyster laws of Maryland and Virginia have given an additional inspiration to tne air Haven do mestic oyster culture. Science has lately been brougnt to bear upon the improvement or oyster culture to a very large extent. This has been seen in the effective work of Prof. Brooks of the Johns Hopkins Univer sity, embracing both theoretical discoveries and practical suggestions of the greatest value. Prof. Verrill of the Peabody Insti tute of New. Haven is also pursuing these subjects with assiduity and success. He and the oyster planters on the spot are agreed that the whole business as yet is in its in fancy. The spawn of an oyster number millions every season. The point to know is how to secure the larger part of this "spat" from being destroyed before it has begun to attach itself to the objects which will enable it to grow safely. The mam thine is to ob tain suitable ground where the young will "set" well, where they will be protected from enemies in the water and out of it. without being put beyond the planter's reach. The modern conclusion is that deep water is needed for assured success, and that the cul tivators ought to have the assistance of steam power in recovering their planted oysters wnen sumcienuy grown. Deep water plant ina requires much capital, large surfaces and uug wtuuiig ; uub it i cue amy way in wmca i . r i - i - i . large crops may be secured by artificial cul ture. Baltimore Sun. Personal. Frank G. Phipps and family are spending the summer at Shelter Island. William Belden, who took a trip around a shaft at the clock shop ten days ago, has re covered so as to be out. Mr. Alvan P.

Prom , The last meeting of the Veteran Firemen's Association before the annual reunion at the Forbes House on East Haven shore next Thursday, will take place this evening in the Common Council Chamber. It is important that there should be a full attendance, in order that it may be known as far as possible how many of the members propose to attend the second annual gathering. That there will be a large attendance there is at present no reason for doubt, and that it' will be a most enjoyable occasion is quite as certain. The following letters in response to circu lars have been received from members out of the city, and more of like character will no doubt be received by Secretary Goodnow to day : William W. Hubbell. CCurley Bill) of Waterbury, writes : "I shall be there with out fail. Say to the old 'Laddies' to turn out strong this year, the same as if the old St. John street bell was tapping quick and light, and 6 and 10 were laying back for a brush on Chapel street. Tell the boys my hand is itching to have a shake with them all." General L. A. Dickinson, of Hartford, an old fireman of No. 4, writes : "You can count me in for the second reunion of the Veteran Firemen's Association, August 5th. Old No. 4 must be fully represented.

Shall do my best to meet you. " At the meeting this evening new members will be received, and the membership, which was two hundred and ninety at the last meet ing, will no doubt be increased to over three hundred. A Democratic Primary In the Sixth Ward, and What Happened Several Young Sachems Walk Out The Meeting then Runs Itself. A Democratic meeting was held lost even ing in Franklin Hall. A number of the young sachems of the party were in attendance, with a prepared programme, among them Colonel Robertson, John W. Lake, Deputy Sheriffs Pond and Catlin and others of party renown. They didn't appear to like the looks of the meeting. The meeting was called to elect delegates to the State, Senatorial, Probate County and Bepresentative conventions. The aforementioned gentlemen having token their look about, declared the meeting adjourned- This did not appal the Democracy present at all, and they went right to work, organized with T. J.

The Japan Mail describes a clever trick which was being exhibited by a native juggler at Joshida Bashi. The performance takes place in a small room about twenty-six feet lone by twelve feet wide, naif being allotted to the spectators, who are admitted on pay ment of the moderate fee ot two cents. The "properties" consist of a deal table and a sword, etc. After the usnal soul-stirring flourish of a dram and samisen, a man and woman appear from behind a screen ; the man binds the woman's head in a cloth, and she then kneels down close to the table and sideways to the spectators. The man then draws the sword, makes a violent blow at the woman's head, she falls forward, arms ex tended and limbs twitching. He then, hav ing first wiped the sword on a gory-lookjng piece of rag, takes tip (apparently) the woman's head, wrapped in the cloth, and places it on the table. T all appearances it is a human head, the eyelids and features have a convulsive motion ; presently the eyes open in a sort of dreamy way and. to the accompanimentjof the everlasting samisen the head sings a mournful song. A curtain is interposed between the audience and the performers, and when again drawn back the woman is disclosed quietly seated alongside the man. When it is recollected that this all takes place wJ'hin about three feet of the spectator, ancrthat the "properties" are of. the simplest description, some idea may be formed of the nderfnl excellence of a per- formanca which as excited attention. , - . - A Highly Moral Race. From tne Ldndon Telegraph. Curious notions of morality appear to pre- i vail among certain inhabitants of the Orkney Isles, who, when a wreck has taken place on their coast, are.it seems, in the habit of car rying off for their own use everything they can lay their predatorv hands on. This occur red the other'day when the bark Poolscar, of I JLiiverpooi, was wrecked out 12 miles rrom Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney. The enter prising natives annexed coils of rope, cases of wine, spars, ship fittings and stores, so that at the sale of what was left of the unfortu-nate-vessel "there was not exposed so much as a tin of meat, pot of paint, ship's compass, clock, or nav other of the small odds and , ends generally sold upon such occasions.' So clean a sweep had been made that even the legs of the cabin table' had been sawn ! across close to the floor, and the table bodily I carried away. It is interesting to know that J these -people, who consider plundering wreck perfectly legitimate, are reported to be a "highly moral" race ; an ordinary case of theft is hardly known, it is said, and .the onlv reason whv thev make an exception in favor of the flotsam and ietsam of a strand ed vessel is, that "they still hold by the old principle that a wreck is a gift from Provi dence. " Perhaps the lights of a Scotch Pres- bvterian. when thev have finished with Prof. Smith Robertson, might employ some time advantageously in driving this pretty theory out of the heads of the Orkneyites.
