DISAGREEING JURIES.

D1CTS THEY ARE DISCHARGED.
Wlieu tbe U. 8. District Court, re
assembled, this morning, at 10 o'clock,
a communication was received from
the jury m the case of ike United
States vs. Charles Shields (who had
bien out siuce 11 o'clock Friday morn
ing), stating that they were unablo to
agree upon a verdict and wished to be
discharged. The Judge sent for them,
inquired how they stood, was inform
ed that they were quit« evenly di
vided, and then ask'd the District At
torney if he had any objection to their
discharge.
The latter first inquired of tho jury
if there had been auy change iu their
opiuions siuce they commenced to de
liberate, and if liiere was auy reasona
ble prospect of'an agreement.
The foreman replied tha< the last
ballot was the a:.me as the first, and
that I hoy would never come to an
agreement, ilo thought tkure was no
use ptinislriug tho jury by keeping
them longer co .fined.
All the jurymen assented to this
vtew, whereupon they were discharged
from further consideration oftlio cuse,
aud discharged from attendance uutil
Tuesday morning, at 10 o'clock. This
jury stood seven fur convier ion aud five
lor acquit tal.
Mr. C. J. rlall, of Milford, a mom
ber of this jury, who has also been
summoned as a Grand Juror for the
Kent Coun , y Court, which meeis iu
Dover on Monday, asked the Court
what biB duty was under the circum
stances.
The Court informed him that his
duty was to continue his attendance
upon the District Court.
Next the jury iu case of the United
Slates vs. Thomas liridgemau (who
weal out at 11 o'clock Thuisday morn
ing) came iu and asked lobe discliatged.
Alter the usual iormal questions
their request was complied with
and they also were discharged un
til 10 o'clock Tuesday morning. In their
delibeialions they stood steadily night
lor acquittal and four for conviction one
ot the Republican voting with the Demo
crats for acquittal.
Speaking of these election casts one
of tbe furymen said to a Gazette re
porter this morning tliut it w as a pel feet
larce to continue them any longer.
Tbe Unit four cases resulted iu ver
dietsof acquittal, but in the last two

<iU, aud will doubileas remain to such
tu extent as to rcutl.-r it Impossible to

cases, in bis opinion, would prove a

THE LEVY COURT'S VISIT.
Thursday the members of the Levy
Court paid a visit to Delaware City,
aud Inspected the marsh property ol the
St. George's Marsh .Company in that
neighborhood. By an act passed at the
recent session ot the Legislature, the
Levy Court Is authorized to pay a por
tion of the money ex pended lor the pur
pose of constructing dykes and cause
ways for tbe protection of the Company's
property. The reason assigned for tints
making a public affair of an apparently
prlva'e enterprise, is t.liat the company's
work has reclaimed and made liable to
is
remunerative taxation over one thous
and acres of marsh land, while the
causeways they constructed are really
public highways, so useful lo public
travel that their obstruction by reason
ol the river ovetfloaiug is a serious det
riment. The expenditures caused by
disaslious overflows of recent years have
amounted to $22,000 aud the sum ot
$8,000 is needed for the purpose of
strengthening the causeways and build

GRANT IN MEXICO.
WILD STORIES OF DARK DESIGNS ON
THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE
MEXICAN REPUBLIC.
City of Mexico, April 22.—The
alleged friendship between General
Grant and General Diaz is injuring
the latter here without benefiting
tbe iormer. Many worthy people
give credeuee to u story put «bout
iu the old "Cnuservalive" circles
that General Grant has come here
iu pursuance of an agreement with
Diaz that he will take over a
kiud of protectorate to be supported
by the United btales Government.
The story, absurd as it is, has been
circulated by people of influence,and
in connection with the general be
lief that General Diaz lias engaged
extensively in railway speculations,
it is working mischief. General
Grant laughs at it,but ho will doubt
less take an early aud conspicuous
opportunity to make au end of it
publicly.

OUR PAMS LETTER
Paris. April 11,1881.
Correspondence of Gazette
The food supply of such a city as
Paris with its two tuillious of per
manent inhabitants and Its 200,000
limiting population, is a serious
matter. The harmony of supply and
demand is maintained at a great
cost, though, perhaps lees than
would be supposed by any one who
bases estimates on tbe cost 1er cits
its of proportionate size iu our own
country.
Tho annual duties levied on food
articles seeking a market in
amount to over teu millions of dol
lurs. This secures a better quality
of supplies, though it enhances the
cost correspondingly. Wholesale
prices average at least oue third
higher for the same class of ar
ticles than in Wilmington. While
Lire labor employed in their produc
tion is less by oue third than with
The inference follows that
trming is profitable iu France.—
As practiced hero it is perhaps as
profitable as auy other business con
ducted with the same skill and cost.
Hut tbe laud is chiefly owned Dy
others than those who reside upon
it aud cultivate it. Beside, by rea
sou of cousiaut cultivation through
a long successtou of years tbe soil is
enfeebled, aud requires stimulating
at great expense iu order to maiu
taiu its fertility. The rents and
taxes are high, and the fertilizers
expensive, all of which must be paid
for by tbe tenant before he can lay
by a sou, or indulgo in what we
should consider esseutial comtorts.
Happily the French farmer has a
différé ut standard from ours in the
matter of material comforts, and in
this lies the secret of his success.—
His simple, abstemious habits aDd
the economy, which tho practice of
generations has made a part of his
nature makes the French one of
the most thrifty aud independent
nations.
Were the soil of Fiance swept away
iu a moment and substituted by the
rich, new soil of our West, and treated
by tbe French farmer precisely as be
treats his native worn-out soil, Fiance,
iu a single decade, would be the one
"Laud fiowiug with milk and honey,"
aud the French the richest nation in
the world.
Two thousand years ago Virgil, tue
sweet singer of a neighbouring state,
sang tbe songs of Labor, aud proclaim
ed it tbe strongest of forces. France
illustrates this truth to-day by the en
ergy with which she has more than re
paired the waste aud havoc of her late
disasterous wars.
Recently, some of the trades of Paris
struck for a decrease of the hours of
labor without a corresponding decrease
of pay. The discussion in the news
papers on tire subject brought out the
statement that in tbe rural districts
from twelve to sixteen hours were
cheerfully given as a day's labor. With
these rural people economy goes hand
in baud with labor, and contentment
and prosperity keep equal peace.
Nothing on the farm is wasted that
will pay for the time given to save it.
The tuasterconsiiiers it a waste to sell
or slaughter a bullock for beef before
it is brought to perfection by careful
feeding. The matter is well considered
and settled iu Ids mind as to the exact
point where a lurlber expenditure of
food will mako a corresponding gain
iu thu weight aud consequent value of
the bullock. When cost equals gain
it is a loss to coutinue feeding.
So with the mistress and her poultry
yard. Her profit is iu her eggs and
spring cUickeus, and consequently the
parent lien is eucour&ged to lay all the
eggs possible without being required to
w aste her Lime iu batching I be eggs aud
rearing tbe young brood. Tbe hatching
can be done belter by artificial means,
ami the cfiicxs ateiaised by band with
iras percentage of loss than when the
ben manages the job.
But tbe dairy is the most profitable
department ot the farm, especially when
wiihin easy reach ol a large eity. A li
cense is required to enable one to sell
milk in tbe city, and the eity protects
tbe dealer or diaiymau iu all his just
l iglils, so that theie is fairness equally
lur bttyet and seller. Milk is delivered
to customers as U is ordinarily aerved iu
our own cities, though iu limited q'uan
titles. It is sent from greater distances
in sealed china jars containing one and
two quarts each. It will keep, sweet a
week or even longer in these jars, aud
by a simple prucers that I was unable to
learn, it will keep a much longer time.
Two companies, with a stock capital
of several hundred thousand francs, are
formed to send the cows iuto l'aris ev
ery morning, wheie llie cows are milked
iu preseuee of the customers. Oue of
these drive the cows in from pastures in
the Hois de Bologne ; tbe oilier sends
them in the cars from a greater dfitance.
Both plans are said to work well, aud
tbe stock is profitable and sells at a pre
mium. The milk is eagerly sought after
aud commands a much higher price tbau
that sold from tbe cans or oveu the cbi
ua jar.

THE POSTAL FRAUDS.
THE EVIDENCE TO BE LAID BEFORE
THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR AC
TION—THE IliREOULAB TRANSAC
TIONS CIAHRIED ON FOR SEVERAL
YEARS PAST—JUDGE TYNER'S CASE.
Washington, April 22.—The irregu
lar and fraudulent transactions which
have been uncovered In the contract office
ol tl e Post Office Department by tbe
investigation of Postmaster-General
James are the Principal topics of discus
sion throughout the city to-day,especially
iu thu Execu ive depart meets, where
eager iuqitlrie are made of those who
ate supposed to be acquainted with tbe
facts as to the number of persous and
who they are, that will be affected in
their official capacities.
A member of ex-President Rapes' Ca
binet, in 'conversation on the subject
this morning, expressed great bui prise
w hen he was told the corruption extend
ed over the entire period of *lbe previous
administration.
While the gentleman expiessed Ids
faith in the honesty and intergrity
immediate predecessors of Postmaster
General James, he said that if tbe cur
rent statements .were true, they clearly
indicated that those affidavits had been
sadly ignoiaut of the details aud opera
Lions of the yarious bureaus under their
charge.
The case against General Brady and
his friends has been presented in its in
complete shape to President Garfield and
luslructiuus wero at ouce given to com
plate the evidence and lay the whole sub
jest, including tbe accumulated mass of
documents, affidavit), and various des
criptions of incriminating memoranda,
before Attorney-General MacVeagb for
such action as may hereafter be deter
mined upon. Meantime very little infor
mation of an official character can be ob
tained, but it is intimated that instal
ments will be furnished for publication
as rapidly as seetnajudicious to those
having the investigation iu baud. The
statement that Judge Tyner was im
plicated m the frauds is said to have no
foundation, and if he is replaced at all
which does not at present seem likely,
it will not be on account of auy connec
tion with tbe Brady corterle.

EXPLOSION OF A POWDER
MAGAZIFE.
Bridgeport, Conn., April 21.—The
powder maganizine situated in West
Stratford, about three miles from this
city, containing about 1,000 kegs or
powder, owned by the Union Metallic
Cartridge Company, exploded zhoitly
after 11 o'clock this morning. Build
ings about» the city were shaken as by a
shuck of earthquake, people were
thrown from their feet and plate-glass
and small windows were in many
places broken. For a time the wildest
excitement prevailed. Shops weie at
once emptied of employees and hun
dreds of womeu rushed wildly about
tbe streets crying. The damage to
buildings about the city Ib estimated
at $5,000. Tbe explosion is supposed
to have been caused in some way by
the rifle shooting of two men *n the
vicinity of the magazine. One of
these men, Egbert Pinney, standing
about 100 yards from the building,
was badly cut about the head, and the'
other was badly shaken up, but not
otherwise injured. As far as can be
ascertained, no lives were lost. The
explosion was heard for miles around.
BEACONSF1 ELD'S MOURNERS.
London, April 23, 1881.
About oue hundred invitations to the
funeral of Lord Beacousfield were sent
out yesterday. They include personal
friends of the deceased aud representa
tives of foreign Powers. Prince Leopold
viewed the body on Thursday. It is
understood that the House of Commons
when it meets ou Mouday will pass a
vote of condolence for the death of Lord
Beacousfield, moved by Mr. Gladstone,
and Immediately adjourn until after the
funeral. Nearly all the members of the
late Cabtnot have expressed their inten
tion to be present at the burial. Lord
Beaconsfieid's coffin was closed and
fastened this morning. The face showed '
no sign of change. Several members of
tbe royal family have intimated their
intention to attend tbe funeral. The
Prince of Wales will represent the
Queen. Admission to the churchyard at
Hugbendeu will be strictly limited to
bearers of tickets issued by the execu

QUAKERS IN IRELAND.
Temple Bar.
Tbe Quaker body in Ireland does not
now much exaeed tbree thousand, in
cluding some very poor people iu tbe
manufacturing districts ot Ulster, wbere
Edmundsou's work began. The dis
tinctive dress has been abandoned. Now
and then the old questions arse,
as tbe other day at Waterford, wbere a
Quaker juror refused to doff his bat.
"Let some geutleman take his hat off
lor him," said Mr. Justice Barry. Tbis
having been doue, tbe scrupulous juror
affirmed, aud marvellous to relate a
vet diet of guilty was returned. Iu a
changed state of society, the sect has
lost rnueb of its old imporlauce, but its
work should always be remembered
with gratitude. Peaceful wheu all
around was at war, toleraut wheu all
otherB were ready to persecute, tair aud
just in their dealings, the Quakers have
showu a good example in Ireland. Dur
ing tbe miseries of 1847 they were fore
most tc alleviating distress, aud they
have always doue much to lessen the
religious animosity which has been
Erin's greatest bane.
