Mysterious Death.-The body of a young man named John Fern, son of a horsebreaker living near Billesley Common, was found in the well in the middle of the Moseley tunnel, on the Midland line of railway, about midday on Saturday. The last time Fern was seen alive was on the Saturday night previous, when he was at a late hour drinking at the Bull's Head Inn, Moseley, with a eompanion named Weston. The two left the house together, and Weston states that he left Fern all right when they reached the point where their respective roads parted. As Fern was missing the next day, a search was made, but it was unavailing till Saturday morning, when, as we have before said, his body was found in the well. How he got into the well is a mystery. He must have trespassed on the line to get into the tunnel at all, and even when he got there we are informed the well is so constructed, that he could hardly have fallen into it by accident. Captain Semmes Again.-On Friday the following was received at Lloyd's, from an agent attached to the Salvage Association, who had just arrived from Bremorhavon :â" Friday, Sept. 9.âA large steamer is reported to have put into Nieudiep, on Saturday, with French colours flying, for a pilot. A boat put out and put one on board. The steamer then came out under Prussian colours, and on reaching Bremerhaven again changed colours, and hoisted the Confederate flag. The pilot who took her to Bremer- haven believes she still remains there. She steamed ten knots at half speed, and is reported to be under the command of Captain Semmes (late of the Alabama) with 300 men on board, and the frigate is pierced for forty guns. She is said to have been built at Bordeaux, where there are three similar in the course of building." The agent of Lloyd's Association adds that the above information was volunteered by the pilot who took her to Bremerhaven, John and Co.'i Cherry Tooth Paste, price Is. 8d.
