Coming Near Us. -- The Sea Serpent Has Been Sighted In Lake St. Clair. The sea serpent was seen again this morning, this time in Lake St. Clair. The steamer HATTIE, coming down from
New Baltimore, passed him swimming rapidly across her bow. Capt. Ed Donahue, Geo. Marks, of Detroit, the brewer, and Frank W. Andrews and his wife, of New Baltimore all stood in the bow of the HATTIE and saw him swim past. "It was nothing but a tremendous black snake," said Mr. Andrews, "but he was 16 feet long at least, and swam with his head out of the water about a foot."
      I think the Detroit brewer and his guests should not have had the captain with them up on the bow. And how did they know the serpent's gender?
