|THE PORPOISE at the ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS.|
| Mr. Frank Buckland writes :Mr. A. D. Bartlett resident superintendent at the Zoological Gardens, having been good enough to let me know that he had just received a fine lively porpoise, I forthwith hastened to pay my respects. I found our new arrival (about 4 ft. long and 33 in. round the chest) in the pond with the sturgeon, who, by the way, is well and hearty. The sturgeon seems very jealous of the porpoise being put into his pond, and swims about the bottom, looking as savage as a fish can look. The poor porpoise seems much fatigued by his journey. He left Boston, in Lincolnshire, on Thursday morning at seven o'clock, in a railway train ; he had therefore been nearly eight hours out of the water. Mr. James Wigtoff, near Boston, sent him down, carefully wrapped up in a wet blanket, and surrounded with wet grass ; plenty of water was also sent, and this was from time to time poured on his back, to keep his skin and blow-holes moist. At this moment he is sailing round and round the margin of the pond with his head half out of the water. Mr. Bartlett thinks he does this because he is in a strange place, and that it is the same thing as a wild bird or beast when fresh caught, beating himself against the bars of his cage. I hope, however, that the porpoise will soon find out that he has come into good hands, and that he will be well treated ; and I trust that in a day or two, if all goes well, he will find this out, begin to feed, and take example from the good behaviour of his comrade the sturgeonwho, by the way, has so far got over his shyness as to eat a quart of worms every day. The respirations or blowings of the porpoise are something between a cough and a sneeze, when an unfortunate patient has (as the cabman expresses it) 'caught one cold on top of t'other.' These respirations are about five to the minute, and the jet of air he sends forth from his blow-hole feels warm to the hand, like breathing in ourselves. I have, however, only one fearthe porpoise did not open his eyes once all the time I was looking at him. I trust he had received no injury ; but I did not like to bother and disturb him by examining them. Our last porpoise diedhe was too long out of the water to have a chance of living ; the present specimen has, however, no such excuse, and I trust he will be good enough to make up his mind to spend the winter with us. We shall be glad of his company.|
| ATTEMPT TO KIDNAP A BLACK SEAMAN.The Times contains the following story, prefacing it with the statement that there are crimps in the north-eastern ports, who make a living by kidnapping seamen for American captains, who have often great difficulty in making up their crews when any of their hands absconded, as there is no treaty with this country to capture and restore runaway seamen to their ships. Last week a crimp induced a negro seaman to go with him from Sunderland to Shields under pretense of seeing a ship in the Tyne docks in which hands were wanted. They arrived in Shields just as a new York ship was coming out of dock to proceed down the harbour to sea. The crimp took the negro to this vessel, and when he was got on board he was told that he must go upon the voyage, though he had no clothes other than those he wore. The coloured man most determinedly refused to go with the ship, but he was told he must, and he would be made to do so. The vessel was towing out to sea all the time, and the negro had no means of communicating with the shore. He was then taken across the bar and out to sea ; but still he said he would not go, and was kicked and cuffed by the master and the mate. When about a mile and a half from land, with a strong sea running, the negro suddenly ran off, and though both officers and crew tried to stop him he sprang over the ship's side into the ocean, and swam towards the shore. The master of the vessel got a boat out to give him chase but he was fortunately picked up by the Tyne steamboat, much exhausted. He was brought on shore at Shields. The police, seeing him running along the street with the wet dripping off him, took him to the South Shields police-station, and he gave them information of the ill-treatment that he had received on board the American vessel. He could not, however, tell who the crimp was that had attempted to kidnap him.|
