More Sea Serpents.

British Captain and Sailors Swear to

Having Seen Three.

New York, Nov. 26. – From Mobile

comes the story of a British sea captain,

Joseph Donovan of the steamer Selma,

in which the sailor says he saw a family

of sea serpents while his ship was in

the Sargasso Sea, 300 miles southeast of

the Bermudas.  One of the serpents was

100 feet long, the second 20 feet and

 the third presumably the baby, 13 feet

long.  All had large heads with long

bills, immense fins and shaggy manes.

The officers and crew of the Selma

have made affidavits that the captain’s

story is true.
