Interesting Relics
Which Were Brought Up From the Bottom of the River by the Dredge General Grant.

Mr. W.S. Malcolm with the dredge General Grant has been fishing up some queer things from the bottom of the river during the past few days. One of them is an anchor of the old fashioned kind, with a very long shank, which has been greatly worn away during the many years it has been lying at the bottom of the stream.

Capt. Dobbie, who is posted on these things, says that the anchor is of the old English kind and must be very old. Another thing the dredge brought up is a dilapidated old musket, brass mounted, and evidently an old stager. Upon the breech plate is the figure "2" and beneath it "98." Some who have looked at it think the piece was made in 1798 and might have been a blunderbuss or an old Tower musket. It certain is an old timer. These relics, which may be seen at Stoddard's, are very interesting.
