Another dory is reported to have

were two persons, a man and a woman.
The man came on board the ship and

England to consummate a marriage

This is undoubtedly the most romantic
elopement on record, although the plan
is one that will hardly be generally
adopted by couples bent on marriage.

Speaking of the prospects governing
the wheat market for the present season^lhe
New York Produce Weekly says the cro|* of
1875 was probably much larger than the Ulti
mate of 247,000,000 bu. and was probaUy
265,000,000 to 276,000,000 bu. The acreage of
the crop of 1876 was larger than that of 1875.
California held more surplus this year than
last. The United States and Canada will
probably have to spare of the crop of 1876,
and crops of previous years, 75,000,000 bu.
The spring-wheat crop of Iowa, Wisconsin,
Illinois, Minnesota, and Nebraska, is estimat
ed to be about two thirds of last year's crop
but the wheat is generally of better quality
than last year, and has been harvested in fine
It is thought that the new crop of spring
wheat will move slowly out of the grower's
hands at the present ruling prices. There ap
pears to be a considerable amonnt of wheat of
the crops of 1874 and 1875 still remaining in
the hands of fanners or speculators for a rise.
The winter-wheat crop east of the Rocky
Mountains, it is expected, will not come up
to the average yield of previous years.
Spain has harvested an abundant wheat
crop in 1876, said to be the best crop in many
years. The Russian wheat crop will probably
be a full average one, with a probable average
surplus ol 50,000,000 bu. for export.
The importing countries will have of home
grown wheat enough to carry consumption
well along into the cereal year of 1876-'7. If
the exporting countries shall force their sur

average of previous years. However much
the wants of Europe may be during the next

Ful Particulars of the Bloody Affair.
On the 7th inst. Minnesota became
the theater of operations of the most
desperate band of robbers whose
exploits were ever /recorded.
The town of Northfield was the scene
of action, and its citizens to this day
have not recovered from the shock.
It appears that at an early hour in
the morning tour strangers entered the
town—fine looking, well dressed, and
mounted on good horses. Two of these
strangers went to a restaurant on the
north side of the river, near the depot
and asked for dinner, ordering four
eggs each with ham. They left their
horses standing loose outside. While
they were eating they chatted famil
iarly with the proprietor, asking him
what he thought of! Tilden's chances,
saying they were willing to bet SI.000
he would be elected. They had scarce
ly finished their meal and gone when
two others came in and ordered the
The horses they rode were very fine
animals, sleek and clean limbed, and
showing indications of blood. These
men attracted attention from many
persons. They were well dressed, and
nobler looking fellows were never
seen but there was a reckless, bold
swagger about them that seemed to in
dicate that they would be rough and
dangerous fellows to handle. At about
2 o'clock the four went toward the
bank, where they were joined by four
others, equally well mounted. Three
entered the bank, one stood at the
jfloor, and the other four rode up and
"down the street, crying out to every
one they saw "Git in, you sons of
-«—," and firing wildly about. The
people at first were greatly scared, and
retreated to their stores and shut the
'doors, but recovering themselves they
soon began to search for firearms. Un
fortunately there were very few in the
place, many of the citizens being out
hunting, but a sufficient number were
at length found to make it lively for
the desperate scoundrels. The utmost
coolness and pluck was shown by Mr.
Manning young Wheeler and Mr.
Bates, these men keeping the villains
actively engaged. Bates, especially,
showed "grit" astonishing to all who
know him, as he had nothing but an
About two o'clock these men rode
up to the bank, dismounted and en
tered the bank. In a few minutes
were heard several shots fired in rapid
succession, and lour other men sim
ilarly mounted, rode up the bank on to
the street shouting continually, "Git
in there, you ," and firing
right and left.
Mr. Bates, whose store is nearly op
posite the bank, seized a fine seven
shooter which was not loaded, and as
the men came down again, (they were
riding to and fro, evidently intent up
on keeping people from going toward
the bank), he standing behind the
door jambs, called out. "Now, I've got
jou, tnd pointed the empty pistol as
if drawing a bead on them. They
turned their horses suddenly and fired
at Mr. Bates, the ball crashing through
the plate glass. This ruse he prac
ticed over and over again with the
Mr. Bates says Mr. Manning, of Mill
Square, whose store is in the same
block as the bank, next came upon the
scene. He ran out of his store with a
Remington repeating rifle, and took a
deliberate aim and fired from the cor
ner, Mr. Bates calling out, "Jump back
now, or they'll getyou. Next Mr. J.
B. Hide came up with a double-barrel
led shot gun and discharged the two
barrels, and retired to re-load. Rev.
Phillips also took a turn at the scoun
drels, and L. Stacey delivered a cool
deliberate aim. Mr. Bates next heard
a report over his head and saw one of
the desperadoes fall from his horse.
The horse made a faltering plunge for
ward and then suddenly stopped and
the man pitched over with his face on
the ground and in a few moments was
dead. Thjs shot was fired by Henry
Wheeler from an old carbine from out
one of the windows of the Danpier
House, from the very room in which
this report is written. Mr. Manning
was still firing, and as he crept to the
corner to fire, Mr. Waldo called out
"take good aim before you fire." Im
mediately after this shot one of the
horses started up the street and the
rider began to reel and sway to and fro
and suddenly fell to the ground just
opposite Eldridge's store. Another
horseman immediately rode up, dis
mounted, and spoke to the prostrate
man who was stretched out at full
length, supporting himself on his out
stretched arms, when he rolled over
on his back. Then the other man took
from him his cartridge belt and two
pistols, and, remounting his horse,
Another horseman finding Mr. Man
ning's fire too hot, dismounted from
his horse and got on the opposite side
of it for protection, when an unerring
ball from the Remington brought his
horse down, the man running behind
some boxes which were piled beneath
the stair-case before mentioned, and
now a lively fulisade ensued between
this fellow and Manning, the fellow
keeping himself well under cover, but
a ball from Wheeler's musket struck
the fellow in the leg, half way above
the knee. He at once grasped the pis
tol in the left hand and grasped the
wounded limb with the right, still try-
ing to get at Manning. Finding 'him
self getting weak he turned and limped
off up the, street, bro), seeing Bates
with a pistol in hi? hand, he sent a
ball whizzing toward*that gentleman,"
grazing the side df his 'face and the
bridgeof his nose and burying itself
in a collar box in the store. Mr. Bates
says he feels the ring of that ball in
his ear still, and the ball he says he
will ever keep as a souvenir of the hot
test day Northfield ever saw.
The man limped away as he got op
posite to Mr. Morris' 'Store, when he
cried out to his retreating compan
ions, "My God, boys, you are not go
ing to leave me—I am shot.'* One of
the party riding a sorrel horse with a
light tail and mane, tumed and took
the wounded man up behind him.
INSIDE THE BANK.
While this was going on upon the
street a tragedy was being enacted in
sida the bank, which is best described
in the language of an eye-witness:
THE FIGHT IN THE BANK.
Mr. Wilcox's story is as follows:
"Mr. Haywood'occupied the cashier's
seat at the desk which you see at the
end of the counter. Mr. Bunker and
myself occupied seats at the desk. Mr.
Bunker being nearest the opening at
corner. The first thing we knew the
three men were upon or over the coun
ter, with revolvers presented at our
heads, one of them exclaiming, "Throw
up your hands for we intend to rob
the bank, and if you halloo we will
blow yourg—d—brains out," and we
could not do otherwise than comply.
They then asked which was the cash
ier, to which Mr. Haywood replied,
"He is not in." Then they sprang
upon the counter and demanded the
safe to be opened. Addressing each in
turn, "Your are the cashier," which
each denied. Seeing Haywood seated
at the cashier's desk, one of the ruf
fians went up to him with his long nar
row barreled pistol and said, "You
are the cashier now open the safe
you son of a ." Mr.
Haywood said, "It is a time lock and
cannot be opened now. One of the
men then went into the vault, the
door being open, also the outer door
of the safe. Haywood at once sprang
forward and closed the door of the
vault shutting the robber in, when an
other of the men seized Haywood by
the collar and dragged him away from
the door and released the incarcerated
The man who came out of the vault
—a slim, dark complectioned man with
a black moustache, then called to the
other to sieze the silver which was
lying loose (about SI 5) and put it in
the sack. They did not do this, but
seized about twelve dollars in scrip
and put it into a two bushel flour sack
whicl^they had with them. The dark
complectioned man, who appeared to
be the leader, then again attacked
Haywood, insisting on his opening the
safe, and threatening to cut his throat
if he did not, and actually drawing a
big knife across his throat, The he
roic and faithful teller, however, was
not to be deterred from his duty, and
would rather sacrifice his life than be
tray his trust. Some few moments
—it seemed ages to the bewildered and
terror-stricken lookers-on—were spent
in Haywood's struggling to break from
the murderous villain and gain his lib
erty. At length he broke away, and
regaining his feet ran toward the door,
The man at once struck him with a
pistol and knocked him down, and
dragging him to the safe door com
manded him to open it. But the in
trepid clerk stolidly refused, when the
villain shot at him but did not hit him.
Evidently the shot was intended to in
timidate rather than to injure, but the
scoundrel had reckoned without his
host, for the effect was lost upon Hay
wood. But upon the discharge of the
pistol Bunker made a start for the back
door and ran for dear life, one of the
robbers pursuing and firing, the shot
taking eifect in the shoulder. Bunker,
however, reached the street [Water
street] and ran to Dr. Coombs' office.
During the whole of this time four
or five men were riding up and down
the street, shooting in every direction
and keeping up an incessant usilade.
One of the men outside came riding up
furiously and called for the men to
leave the bank. "The game is up,"
he said, "and we are beaten."
Almost immediately they took the
alarm and somehow jumped over the
counter, making their exit. The small
man was last to go. He mountod a
desk at the front, and as he turned to
go fired and shot at Haywood, which I
do not think is the one that took ef
fect. Haywood dodged behind his
desk, or sank into his chair (Hay
wood's desk stands at right angles to
the bank desk, and he sat sideways to
the opening at the front, with his back
next to the wall) and as the robber
made over the desk railing he turned,
and placing his revolver to Haywood's
head, fired, shooting him dead.
He staggered forward and fell be
hind the counter. The robbers made
out of the door. I do not remember
much more that followed.
Wilcox was not sure whether the
ruffian struck Haywood when the lat
ter staggered to the cashier's chair,
and he did not stop to see if he was
dead when he fell. He said the reason
he did not try to get out or help Hay
wood was that one of the men stood
over him with a pistol in his hand.
In less than a half hour fifty men
were in hot pursuit, and before sun
set a large delegation of St. Paul and
Minneapolis police had also started
from Northfield. Faribault, and Dun
das, well armed and equipped. A
