Old John, Tanner's Agent, gle
Tickles a wtoman Into pie.
Old John Morris, the colored man who 1
used to bring shuck cellars and twist tobac- the
co to the city, has been arrested on a very tw(
serious charge. From the first, he took a gle
deep interest in Dr. Tanner's children-of- las]
Israel experiment, and on one occasion spa
was heard to remark that Dr. Tanner sw
would be the,, best-advertised man in the
America, and that any medicine made by ca;
him would have a ready sale. Yesterday for
he came to the city, and exhibited a paper, thl
showing that he was the sole agent for the aft
Tanner anti-bilious cordial. He went I i
around to a colored teinement house and we
read his certificate and produced his mredi- tr
cine. The colored people can fight against 'O

"The pilot then asked for volunteers to ,e
build a raft; the chief mate (who was the b
captain's son,) myself, and the boatswain, ,
nd e e'manr named John Roach, volun
teered for the work. Within two hours
we had the raft ready for alunching to
windward, when a heavy sea took it from
off the bulwarks, iloated it over the side, li
at the satme time breaking the captain's i
Sleg in two pilaces, washing the second 'l
Sotlicer overboard, and faitally crushing the t
boatswailn's mate. After the raft was b

also remained on 1)o:ard.

Sderedi all the men who de-sired to get on
o the raft, when thirteen of the crew did so.
The raft w'as then astern of the ship, held1
Sby at rope. I jumped oil the stern, and:
t made for the raft: the pilot followed me,
-and he was thie last man to leIve the ship.
Ie Thie pilot ordered the hawser to be tiut,
! anid within an hour after\waird we saw' ile
S' vessel keel over and go dowin.
"We drifted all that d(ay and nighit
o heavy seas breaking over us. We were
d all up to oiir hins in water, as, having so
I, msanyl men upon it, the rfit floated low.
1- iAl this night Pilot Elson, being a ver '
-._ powerful swimmer, swam round the raft
le in orditr to see to the lashings, which re
t quired consta:ut attention. At two in the
h i morning, one man, a Greek, Peter Lecoll,
e was waished off the raft by a heavy breal1
e r: the pilot immediately made for hint,
ie ,iand brought him b)ack: e ne or two more
vw men, similarly ,washed off, were also saved
di by Pilot Elson.
"The pilot then suggested that ' e b hit,
Ssh'ould remove the three booms, which in Co
Spart held our raft from the top, and of
these booms make a smaller raft to relieve
the men on the larger one. The men
were all suffering from the salt water, the
raft being so deep in the water. The thi
pilot, myself, a seaman named John Bult-I fa
ler, and another London seaman (name pr
not known,) who shipped in Calcutta, IS
took to the small raft, and after getting on of
to her we lost sight of the large raft. Our
smdall raft was made of the three booms lY
aforesaid, and was in the form of a trian- it
gle. During the night I fetched in every th
piece of wood that floated past us, to im- ca
prove the buoyancy of our raft.
"Toward the morning of the 2d, when c.
- the sun began to increase in power, the co
r two men seated at one corner of the trian- th
R gle became delirious, and allowed the m
lashings to go adrift. Later on, the three in
a spars of the raft got separated, and in P'
r swimming about in a hceavy surf to get ui
2 these together again, the pilot and I be- "
Y came very much exhausted. At about
T four o'clock a heavy sea washed off one of "
, the delirious men, and within an hour P'
C after the other man shared the same thte.
t I then observed to Pilot Elson that we li
d were the only two men left, and must b
- try and fight it out, when he replied, U
it '0! Fraser, I can't hold out any longer.' i
- I replied, 'Pilot, you mustn't give up that '
t- way. I will see to the lashings; you re- Si
:e main quiet.' I further said, 'If you think a
te you cannot hold on, I can lash y;ou on.'
Y He then made some exclamation about s,
his poor wife, and said, 'I will hold on.'
S "I thee turned to make fast the lashings, g
d when a heavy sea broke upon us and t]
e knocked him off. I made for him in
sufficient time to lay hold of him by tie
I-thair of the head, but my hand slipped fl
.le from the raft. I found it impossible to
I- hold him, and was forced to let him go,
cdl as I had great difficulty in regaining the
is raft. I then got the'raft a little together, 1
he 1 and lashed myself to it. I scarcely knew '
ad at the time What I was about, being so
-s exhausted, and felt that .I was about to
0r j share the fate of my companions. I can
not say how long I remained on the raft
ed after this, for I became senseless. lut
eventually (next morning) I found my
self high and dry on the beach, the part of
kit near the Balasore road, and about six
- teen miles from Contai. I managed: to
arg walk on to a small house on the beach
b a about two miles distant, where I learned
de that of the eleven men on the big .raft
eight had come ashore and three had been
101 washed off."

When a railroad passenger hears the

this impulse is often restrained by second

wife were passengers on a Lake Shore
train, and as the section men were making
repairs on the line in various places, the
whistle was sounded pretty often. The
old couple were fully alive to every 'toot,'
and each time the old man would stick his
head out of the window.

A Bloodhound's Grntitude. C,
There is now living in Eaton County, p
this State, says the Detroit Free Press, a
farmer who, as a Frederal soldier and a
prisoner at Andersonville, was a party to
a strange incident during the palmy days
of that terrible prison pen. Tihe prisoners
were allowed to go out in squads, strong- C!A
ly guarded, to collect firewood. One day
it came to this man's turn to go, and for
the first time since his imprisonment .he
caught sight of "Col. Catchem," the big
bloodhound who had run down more es- Fro
caping prisoners than all the other dogs
combined. In fact, at that time he was
the only hound at the poet. He was a
monster dog, savage as a tiger, and he had
in several cases pulled down and killed the
prisoners before the pursuers could come P
up. Such were the stories of his ferocity,
whispered inside the srockade; that more
than one tunnel was abandoned just as it
was ready to lead its diggers under the
r posts and to liberty.
The Michigander noticed that the dog
limped painfully on one of his tore-feet,
t but gave the matter no special attention
until, after being out for half an hour, he
sat down to rest near one of the guards. N
`t The dog approached the guard as-if to ask
some favor, but was repulsed with an oath
k and a threatened blow. lie then skulked
around and came near the prisoner, who F
t saw that he had an old horseshoe-nail run
into his foot. With a little coaxing, he
, got the dog near, and finally pulled out
d the nail, and the, animal ran away, seem
1 ingly well pleased.
It Twelve days-after that, one -night about
d imid-night, a tunnel was ready to pass out
o the few who had secretly dog it. The
I Wolverine went first, and indeed aInst.
e The others remembered the stories of the
r big bloodhound, and drew back at the last
v moment, The prisoner was a long time i
o getting clear of the neighborhood, and
to weak and starved as he was, he was not
more than two miles from the slockade
ft when day broke and "Colonel Catchein"
ut was put on. his track. - When he heard
the hound coming he looked for-a suitable
of tree to elimb, but failed to find. one.
- Armed with adclub, he took his stand, and
to determined to make: fight for it. The
ch dog came along the trail with a rush,
ed stopped short at sight of the prisoner, and
aft was about to spring when he recognized
en the man, aud began exhibiting every sign
of friendship. After a few minutes the
he pursuers were: heard in the distance. The
la dog at once trotted off in that direction,
en and was shortly baying and leading them
ice over a fictitious trail.
rid The prisoner pushed aheaid for half an
hour, and was then rejoined, by the dog,
who kept either close to his heels or just
ahead of him all day, and lay beside him
the in the woods at night. This position of
rst guardian or companion, he maintained -un
ut til towards night of the second day, when
nd he returned to the stockade. The prisoner
el- was then thirty miles away, but the roads
his were patrolled and the woods scouted,
and on the fifth morning he was recap
ingor tured. When he was returned the hound -
the met and caressed him, and for this was
rhe whipped by one of the guards. From that
ot,' hour to the close of the was the dog would
his not take the trail of an escaping prisoner. 1
Hie was tried time and again, but he
k- would not follow the trail a single rod..!
Lek Another bloodhound was proecred, but asi
e-, soon as he took up a trail the other dog
ma- would follow and fight him. During the
last three months of Andersonville not a!
he prisoner was runi down by the dogs, ml
He though dozens tunnelled out, and many
twere lyinig in the woods when the Confed
ercy went withsicrash.
