Just above the corner the horse gave a sudden stall, pulling Mr Pruitt out of the wagon and dashed him with great force against a hitching post in front of the residence of Lewis F: Adair, No 003 Jetlerson street at the same time the wagon overturned, ami the horse breaking loose continued on Ids way, and was captured at Sixth and Washington treets.

Tt is also stated that the line of boats from Lewes to Philadelphia, as in tended last summer will be shortly run ning. These steps when taken by the company will add faith in the perma nence of tho investments made, and open Philadelphia, which will compete for trade and travel from the lower peninsula by lessened rates.

A-iiobe.— The brig Moses Day, of Philadelphia, came ashore at Rehoboili City at midnight on Saturday last. The night was dark and foggy, so much so that the men at the life-saving station, one mile distant, could not see the big lighthouse. This was the cause of the accident; no lights could be seen any where. The brig was from Montividio in ballast and bound to the Breakwater for orders. She went up high and dry on the beach, and required no assistance.— The men at life-saving station No 2 were at the point in fifteen minutes alter she struck, and those from No. 1 also came up, but tlieir services were not required. F. C. Maull&Co., have contracted to get her off at a price to be allowed by the board of underwriters. It is thought that she will soon be launched off' without damage. She is now in good condition and does not leak.— News.

It is understood that the story will have a good deal of "action," and »hat while it has to do mainly with the so-called upper classes, tho relation be tween these and "the great unemployed" will be an important pnaso of the narra tive.

On Monday night tho chicken houses of Samuel Gamble, and Mrs. Kel Ium, residing on Vandevor Avenue,were broken open and thirty pairs of chickens stolen. Ou Thurday night John Gumming lost nine pairs, a man bythe name of Anderson, 5 pairs, and John Pruitt 4. The thieves also tried to break into the lienery, of Neven Gamble, but failing, and out of revenge it is supposed stole two pairss of overalls and two shirts that were left hanging on the line in the yard. Game. Large shipments ol wild geese partridges and other game are still being made over the lines of our railroad. In view of the fact that near ly all now being killed is by professional gunnel's for mar ket outside the State, we would suggest to our spoilsmen desirous of protectlngthe game, we have, that the easiest and best way is to shorten the period in which game may be lawfully taken, and to pro hibit the shipment from the. State or to market after January 1st, of each year.— This is but just, since, our neighbors prevent the destruction of their game alter that date, and so turn their pot gunners upon us.

RUM OKS 'J HAT MAY 18 SERIOUSLY WOL'ND KIl—MYSTERIOUS MOVEMENT)- OK M' Ko KOKS — WILL THERE HE EDDI.N«; A Froin me Haiti] The May-Bennett affair still remaini» the object of much talk at the clubs and in social circle«, the matter was, its usual, freely discussed yesterday. The intimate friends of Freder ick May were positive in their assertions that he was unhurt, but there were many who still cling to tho belief that he is wonded and conceal»«! in the hunting lodge of a friend on the Gunpower. The May party, including Dr. Frederick May the second of Mr. Bennett's antagonist, state that the report of the duel publish ed in the Gazette on Wednesday morn ing was absolutely correct. It is so ac cepted by tho family of Dr. M ay, in this city. It is understood by the friends of the parties at the club that Dr. Frederick May, second to Fred May, and Dr. Charles Tilghinan, his surgeon, have left for parts unknown. Some say Fred May, of New York, accompanied them; others that he is on the Gunpowder, as stated above. There is so muon mystery thrown around the fact of the whereabouts Fred May that it is impossible to get at the exact iruth. The fact is known here that Dr. Alan P. Smith has been absent several days this week from town, and has taken Jong rides in his sleigh. It is also stated Dr. Pancoast, a celebrated physician of Philadelphia, was absent from that city in attendance on a wound ed man in Maryland, whom it is conjee tured was Fred May. A contradiction of the report that Ben nett had been married to Mi«s May and had left with his wife in the Illinois from Philadelphia for Europe was re ceived here. The parties supposed to have been Mr. and Mrs. Bennett were Mr. Cundell, the English commissioner to the Centennial, and his wife. The union of Bennett and Miss May, however is deemed probable in this city from the improved temper of the May party to ward that gentleman. The announce ment of the marriage would create no surprise in this city,as it has been expect ed by those intimate with the parties since the duel. The impression has been made, from what circumstances are not known, but probably from the explanat ions that followed* the interchange of shots. If. is such a declaration was made by Bennett, accompanied by excuses for past misconduct, and better behavior in the futvre. Whether this be true or not, the fact remains that denunciations of Bennett up to the day of the hostile meet ing are now changed to eeojniums upon his courage and conduct. At the Maryland « lub Of CLol.'D BANNERS OF THE ALPS. Among the most exquisite scences which delight the eye of the European traveller are those wonderful rose-col ored cloud banners, floating from the Alpine Clifts. But it is only in the sun light that Nature hangs out these beauti ful tokens. So it is only in the glow of health—the sunlight of our inner being— that nature reveals those physical cloud banners, the "rosy cheek" and "cherry lip," to praise which every poet of the earth lias invoked the Muse to aid him. But they are as rare a-s the cynical Hood conceived the Christian charity to he. Woman, eager to retain this charm, sorts to French art and rouge. The ef fect is similiar to that which would be produced by substantial auctioneers' Hags for the delicate glowing cloud-bi of the Alps. If woman would aid Na ture instead of adopting art, would seek health instead of vainly trying to mask disease, she would not only win the greatest charm of womanhood—health— but she would avert from herself and others. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has received tho highest praise from thou sands of pale, delicate, suffering women. * >ne bottle affords mon - relief than months of treatment by caustics and other medi cines. It is harmless in any condition of the system, and its use often renders the modest invalid exempt from that most trying of ordeals—a personal consultation with a physician. It is the duty of every woman to become familiar with the causes and symptoms of the many diseases to which her peculiar organization renders her liable, and also to learn the proper means of preventing these maladies. The People's Medical Adviser contains an extensive treatise upon "W her Diseases." The Author also advises courses of domestic treatment, which will often render the services of a physician unnecessary. Every w jmun should read it.
