To the Editor of mu Gazette :— There are some objections to the sewer system which has been projiosed, that might well l>c considered at the present time. In the first place, it would lake the constant flow of a stream like the Brandywine to keep the sewers clean, which would add very much to the demands of the water tupply. Just when the most, water would be needed as in warm weather, then our supply is the lowest. Then It would be a great waste of valua ble material. A system of earth closets might be devised where one box might be replaced by afresh one at stated Intervals. The farmers of the surrounding country, I doubt not, would willingly enter into an arrangement to exchange the boxes if they were made portable, and convenient of access. Something of this kind already exists in regard to our stables, where the waste is ex changed for straw. I should think it a great mistake to take the rain water off by means of sewers, for it i» all needed to keep the streets clean. Every street should carry its own water, and to do this they ought to be made slightly hollowing in the middle. I should be mon* In favor of placing whatever money there is to spare on top of the streets and putting them in complete repair. A parement oi asphalt and oyster shells would be the best one for Wilmington. W . F. Quimby. A Dolnw.r. (iauger.

The Annual gesHion Opens In Dover Yes terday-Grand Master Rossa'» Report. The annual session of tbe Delaware State Grange commenced at Dover yesterday and was well attended. Master J. J. Rossa read his address, which was an interesting one. The report also speaks of the work iu Del aware ©ucouruging, and says one of tbe moat important matters it has to deal with is education. The agricultural advancement made by the Grange was dwelt upon,« and needed amendments to laws are mentioned. The report al»o saya: "The war of the revolution was cauaed by taxation without representation, but I appeal to you if our laws are what they should be on this subject. It must appear plain to every unprejudiced person that they are not. Let the minority be ever so atrong they arc practically without a voice In the councils of the State. I care not whether this is Democracy or Republicanism, I be lieve it to be right and in the interest of the whole people, and we should endeavor to right the wrong at this winter's* seselon of the Legislature. We ehorkl acquaint our representatives with ot*i wishes in this Transportation is auothe-r (subject of great importance that should be regulated by leg islation. "Situated as vre are," says the master, "and wholly dept »dent on one main line for the transportatioi of our produce, we are in a favorable posh ion to experience the full force of the monopolistic theory, 'what the trade will bear.' But how shall these abuses be remedied, is the question." In answer to this question the master points to the benefits that the people of Georgia have experienced from the work of railroad commissioners, and says through their ef forts the people of Georgia have secured fair treatmeut from the railrcmis that would be worth thousands of dollrrs people of Delaware. ï nch grange is re quested to appoint some ue to wait on the Senators aud Represent. .Ives lu Congress und urge upon them the necessity of voting for the Reagan Inter-state Commerce bill, and "if they fail to comply," says the mas ter, "see to it that they do not again offi cially* darken the portsU of the National Capitol." On the subject of immigration the master says : "It is a universally admitted fact that those States that arc doing most to induce immigratiou arc makiug rapid strides to wards prosperity. There are thousands of acres of land here awaiting help from oute side for their development. Cannot this Grange Induce tbe Legislature this coming session to enact a liberal immigration law ? Thousands upon thousands of desirable immigrants are passing our very doors west ward every year, who, if they could he In duced to settle here, would prove of great valuo in developing the resources of our State. Year after year sees our labor be coming scarcer and less reliable, and our only resource is In immigration, which il wisely encouraged will fully supply the pressing waut, profitably to those coining amongst us and to ourselves." The organization of a State Weather Ser vice is recommended and it is suggested that the United States Senators of the State be urged to vote in support of the bill mak ing the Commissioner of Agriculture a Cabinet officer and creating a Department of Agriculture. The address calls attention to the injustice of holding innocent pur chasers responsible for the use of articles manufactured under infringed patents and suggests that the mç'% ■«'m of the grange organize to protect incurs©! t«» |>»i lkeU«.I y against the threatened suit against those engaged iu fruit evaporating. The most important suggestion made by the master is that which suggest» the propriety of or ganizing a fruit exchange. Alter referring to the present disadvantages in putting fresh fruit on the market and the fact that evaporated fruits and canned goods are fast drilling into the same tide that swept away cash purchasers from green fruit, the ad dress goes on : "If our business were without precedent, the only one that had lo contend with like '„conditions, we might bo at a losß for any solution for our diilieuities ; but for tunately for us there arc many guides to direct us, notably the experience of the Creamery Exchange of New York. It has succeeded, as I urn informed, in bringiug purchasers to the doors of the producers at much more satisfactory profits to both pro ducer aud dealer than ever obtained under the coin mission system. "Notwithstanding the difficulty that must attend any effort to change the practice of consigning fruits to distant markets for sale commission, yet J nm persuaded that if a committee of this grange could take the necessary time to diirost the subject of a fruit exchange they would evolve much light from our present darkness. "As aids to their investigations aud re port 1 have no doubt the enterprising of Wilmington would co-operate, and it may be that during the session of our uext Legislature a charter may be obtained for a joint stock fruit exchange to be located at Wilmington, or some other convenient point, under rules and regulations that will at least retain a near market for our manipu lated fruits ami possibly work some benefit for the trade in uncured fruits. The remainder of the address is devoted to a review of the grange work and sug gestions for extending the order. Money Lost and Found. A young man named Sutton, employed in the paint department of the I*. W. & Ii. car shops, took his cheek for his months' work and that of a fellow workman to the bank yesterday aud lmd them cashed. The amount of the two checks and some money he had in his pocket amounted to Ç95. In the neighborhood of Fifth and Spruce streets he lost the whole sum, aud his ex citement when he discovered the loss may be imagined. A lad named Snyder, who is employed by the Pusey & Jones Company, found the money and returned it to Sutton with an houebt -spirit, which is as com mcnduble as It is rare. Th© Board or Health. The Board of Health met last evening, the members all being present and Dr. Bush pre siding. The executive officers reported several nuisances abated since last meeting, several were continued aud two dismissed. Four new complaints were acted upon, and referred to committees and executive offi cers for examination. Orders were drawn as follows: Geo. C. Ward, $15.45; A. V. Gayuor, $9.50; James Stuart, Ç3.00, Tbe Board adjourned to meet at the call of the President. A Friz© Fighter Falls to Turn Dp.

When Governor Hall went home on the Delaware railroad traia, leaving here at 6.25 o'clock last evening, his manner and conversation was suck as inspired confi dence in ihe hearts of the friends of Harri gan, and the news given in the above dispatch will not cause great sur prise. "I have given tbe ease great thought ful consideration," said His Excellency to a representative of the Gazette, "and I shall think ov*r the matter even more care fully yet before I give my decision. I have in iny pocket" said he, touching side-pocket of his overcoat, great deal of evidence bearing upon the ease which makes out even a stronger argument in favor of showing Harrigan clemency, than I had thought possible. I shall careTully con sider these and weigh the words that have been said to me in his behalf, and will soon give my decision." The arguments before the Governor yes terday were very earnest aud leading citi zens, without regard to party, pleaded with him and testified to the great change of sentiment in favor ol the doomed man view "a of the revelations con cerning his domestic relations, which duly sworn to, were handed him.

Martin Farrell, who has been very âfitive in behalf of Harrigan, said to the reporter : "The action is just what I expected, and by doing this the Governor Las met the views of all right thinking people. I do uot see how he could have done other wise, aud had he done differently he cer tainly would have been universally con demned. He has been guided by a sense of duty, and will receive general praise.'' COIIICT I'll«;tnr.uin <».-» The Thorne-Woltlln Jury Charged—M© • Caulley vs. Rice. Benjamin Niclds, Ecq., at the afternoon session of court yesterday stated the facts of the Thorne-Weldin case, declared that the whole matter had turned out to be oath against oath. The plaintiff, he said, had declared one thing which the. defendant de nied. He did not think it at all likely or reasonable to suppose that Mr. Thome would do the work he did lor nothing. In asmuch as the first witnesses contradicted eacli other the jury should take other testi mony upon which to base its decision. He spoke about half au hour aud was followed bv Harry Emmons, E6q., for the defeusc. Mr. Emmons spoke brifly, arguing that Mr. Weldin was under no obligation^ to Mr. Thorue, who had solicited to be allowed the opportunity to get up the drawings for the defendant's house. The plaintiff on the other hand, however, was under obligations to the defendant. Thorne's bid for tiie work ahead of Weldin. Mr. Lore followed for the defence, basing his remarks upon the assertion that the pluintiff had already been paid for bis work by the favors showu him by Mr. Weldin, who had giveu him credit, when a stranger, without reputation and without capital, had takeu a note in part payment for a billowed; and in other ways had done what he could to aid Thorne. Thorue'6 idea was to get a name aud a reputation as a contractor by building a first-class house. Thorne's offer, Mr. Lore contended, to do the work for $600, during the winter when work was slack, was only a plan to get Mr. Wcldiu in his power, so that when spring came, and work was pleutiful, ho could ask what he pleased to complete the dwelling. After speaking nearly an hour Mr. Lore finished and Mr. Neilds began his answer and the closing argument. He begau by defending his client from the imputation ol the opposing counsel, that he "stretched tbe truth" while upon the wit ness stand, aud then reviewed the testimony closely, comparing the oath of Thorne with the affirmation of Weldin. Mr. Nields spoke for 50 minutes, and at 5.55 court adjourned after the transaction of 6ome minor business. THE MORNING'S SESSION. At 10 o'clock this tnoruiug, after the opening of court, Chief Justice Comegy's briefly charged the jury iu the Thorne-Wd din case, and at 10.30 they retired» W. McCaulley vs. John V. Rice, trading as Rice & Co., was then called, a jury being drawn. Authony Higgins represented the plaintiff and Mr. Kicc was announced as his own counsel. After addressing the court, considerable sensattou was produced by an unusual 6cene in which Mr. Rice mado a brief address. He felt it his duty lo explain his anomalous position of both client and counsel. He re ferred to tho plaintiff geuerous, etc., and possessing the love of money equal to that of a Shy lock. After speaking iu a general way, his remarks being interspersed with quotations from Shakespeare, lie broke down and paced quietly up and down the bar seemingly unable to speak. Upon being motioned by Mr. Loreto take a seat Mr. Rice regained his voice and passionately exclaimed ; "Tell it not in Browntown aud publish it not in Hedgeville how have the mighty fallen." He then explained that he was aware of the fact that a man who conducted his own case had a fool for a client. He had. when the suit was at first brought, engaged emü * tient couusel but they had withdiawn. Turuiug to the jury he trusted that his apology for delaying them would be re ceived. He remarked that he was a man ol probity and lair dealing, and for the first time In fiiiy years those principles hod been assailed. "Jf I have said or giveu expres sion to my feelings, I hope I will not preju dice your minds iu the case. 1 will present the case as clearly, plainly and succluctly as possible." lie than went on and described how he had borrowed money of Mr. McCauU in the nature of a scheme to get The case of Samuel animons iu ley and how that gentleman had kept crowd ing him. Mr. Hice described his troubles earnestly and remarked that "God known I would have done anyth mg to have paid that note. The money was borrowed when I was in great financial distress from which 1 have not yet recovered." On finishing he said he would then call the defendant (him self) to the stand. Mr. Higgins objected as the evidence was not proper, authorities being cited in the matter. Mr. Hice responded with other legal points, clearly put, claiming that were he debarred it w ould greatly injure his case and his rights. [Continued In second edition. 1 PLENTY POLICE PlCaiNO».
