Submarine Diving - Mr. J.B. Green, who was often mentioned a few years since in connection with his attempts to recover the safe containing $36,000 from the lost steamer Atlantic, in Lake Erie, has become a cripple and an invalid. His terrible labors and exposures underwater resulted in a parlysis, which has reduced a strong man to an almost useless being. Mr. Green was at one time engaged in raising a wreck in the West Indies. His early labors in diving were richly rewarded, and he was on his way to the West with a view for settling there as a farmer, when the vessel on which he was travelling was sunk in Lake Erie, and all his property was lost. He immediately resumed his old business, with the results indicated. In order to obtain the means of livelihood he has published and is now selling in New York a small pamphlet giving a history of his life and adventures, and minutely describing what he saw beneath the waters while engaged in hunting for treasure. The book is said to be intrinsically interesting, and those who buy it will befriend a needy man.
