Among our callers during the week was Capt. Chas. Gnewuch, owner and master of the steamer Buckley. Capt. Gnewuch, who is a resident of Manistee, Mich., has been sailing the lakes since he was sixteen years old, and he is now upward of sixty, has had a long and steady pull of it. He tried to give up the sea about ten years ago, but found time hanging so heavily on his hands, that he concluded to get back into harness again. Capt. Gnewuch was born at or near Stetin, Germany, in 1838, and came to America when about six years old, and he is ac­cordingly one of the oldest masters in point of service On the Great Lakes today, and more than that he looks good for at least another twenty years if appearance indicate anything.
