Continued from first page their escape. They were not. discov ered by the Indians until beyond the reach oi their deadly rifles. When we consider that during all this time, one of the young women was not only helpless, but had to be borne by the strength of others, and that Mrs. Perrine herself was abso lutely ill, the determined fortitude and cool calculation, the great feats of strength, the daring adventure and wonderful escape from butchery and the flames, appear so striking as to al most stagger human credulity. The destitute fugitives were taken wpby a boat from the schooner Medi um, Captain Magee. Their situation must have been' truly distressing— having been nine hours in the mud and water at the Key—and some three hours exposed with nothing but tattered night clothes, if bv this time they,ever merited that name —to the burning rays of a tropical sun. they were literally basted alive. They wish to express their grateful ac knowledgment to the Captain of the Medium, .and his officers and crew, ior their gentlemanly and generous conduct upon this trying occasion. They wish also to express their deep iclt gratitude to Captain Laugh!in, of the “7'7/r/." ilis obliging kindness and that of his men. will long be held in remembrance by the sufferers. On board the tSanta steamer, in which they reached St. Augustine, every kindness and attention was shown them which their wants and desti tute condition required. To I >r. Mc- Creary and Midshipman Murry, of the naval depot —Tea Table Key— and very many gentlemen of Key West, they feel under weighty obli gation for their attention and kind ness. They cannot refrain from a special acknowledgment of their gratitude to l)r. Edward Worrel, U. 8. A., who accompanied them from Cape Florida to Philadelphia, and treated them in the most praisewor thy manner. And they wish to say to their friends generally, that no pains have been spared wherever they have been, among strangers or acquaintan ces, to mitigate the burden of their sufferings; and that they have reached their destination in safety, and are happy thus to acknowledge the nu merous favors heaped upon them, and their gratitude to an overruling Prov idence, whose protecting hand so sig nally shielded them in the hour of trial and danger. —Tampa Guard ian.
