LOSS OF THE STEAMER CLYDE- The steamer Clyde, which left Hawkinsville a few days ago,
was wrecked in Saplio Sound, between Darien and Savannah, on Saturday June 29, 1874.
The Clyde was the only boat running on the Ocmulgee River, except the little Daisy,
which can be made of but slight service to the people living along the River. The
Savannah News gave the following particulars of the loss of the Clyde..
Just as the steamer was nearing the first buoy, before crossing the Sound, she was
struck by a heavy squall. When the squall was seen approaching, the boat was brought
about with the head to the gail and anchor let go and with assistance of steam,
Captain Day managed to "hold the boat up to the gail". After the first blow there was
a temporary calm, when the wind, which had set in from the southeast, veered suddenly
and with great violence to the north, taking the boat broadside, and Captain Day, who
was standing on the upper deck at the time, was pitched head foremost into the Sound as
were also the remaining officers and crew. The Clyde had on board, four bales of
cotton and a few bales of wood.
The officers and crew of the steamer consisted of Captain Day, the first and second
engineers E. E. Duban and Thomas Brower, one mate, one pilot, one assistant pilot,
two deck hands, two firemen, one cook and one stewardess.
When the boat went over, the cotton and everything moveable about her went into the
Sound, also some portions of the cabin, which gave way. The entire force of the Clyde,
who were in the water, managed to seize hold of some of the wrecked material or to
mount a cotton bale, by which means they were all saved. With exception of two of the
crew who floated on some drift material, towards St. Catherine's Island the party
fortunately drifted into the marsh on Blackbeard Island.
When thrown from the boat into the water, Captain Day lost his Wallet containing
between three and four hundred dollars, which fell from his pocket. The entire effects
of the officers and crew were lost, many of them without shoes or hats.
On reaching Blackbeard Island. Captain Day in company with one of his engineers,
sought assistance in every direction, going through the briars and marsh grass,
sometimes waist deep. Finding it impossible to obtain succor on Blackbeard. Captain Day
and his two engineers, at dawn on Sun. started in Clyde's yawl, which had been picked
up, for a vessel lying at anchor some eight miles off, pieces of drift wood being used
for oars. After five hours of pulling the oars, they reached the vessel, it proved to
be the British ship Melicete, Captain Dunn. This vessel had also dragged her three
anchors during the blow.
On approaching the vessel and making known their cause of their visit, Captain Dunn
ordered his ladder lowered and invited the wrecked men to partake of every hospitality
on board his vessel. Captain Dunn then had his yawl (a ship's small boat) manned with a
crew and sent to Blackbeard Island for the remainder of the Clyde crew and also to
search for the two men drifting toward St. Catherine's beach. The two men were not found,
they had probably went back to the island.
On board the Melicite, Captain Dunn not only gave the unfortunate men the best his
vessel had in the provision line, but also furnished some of them with clothing, hats
The wrecked crew remained on board of the Melicite until Monday morn. when Captain
took them up to Darien, some of the citizens made further contributions of clothing
and shoes and treated them most kindly.
A colored man named Enoch, from Hawkinsville, was one of the hands, and reached home
safely. The fate of the two missing crewmen was never mentioned.

THE SHOOTING-AN INNOCENT MAN WOUNDED.
An altercation occured on Tuesday night at the camp house of J. S. Willis between James
E. Laldler, a merchant, and some of the campers. Mr. James Carlisle, of Dooly, his son and
son-in-law and some of his laborers were occupying the house. Lou Nobles who was under
the influence of a few drinks, had some words with one of the men and the noise attracted
the attention of James E. Laidler and Chris Coffee, who went up to the door. While their
words took place between Nobles and Laidler that led to shooting on the part of Laidler.
We do not propose to give the particulars, as both sides gave different statements.
All agree, however, that Laidler drew his pistol and fired three or four times after first
or second shots the door was slammed to and a couple of balls passed through the door.
William Christmas, a disinterested young man in the house, was heard to explain that he
was struck and badly hurt. When the firing was over, it was determined that the ball had
entered the breast near the right nipple and had lodged in his back. Doc. H. V. Johnson
was called. This Wed. morning the young man was doing fair. The rest is under investigation.
