barrels of poultry they were allowed to
plead guUty and pay a fine of |10. Subse
qucntly it was learned, though too late to
capture them again, that they had procured
an agent who succeeded in buying about
300 pounds more of poultry and shipping it
to Philadelphia. The men themselves

people. The ease was then postponed until
Tuesday night to allow the defendant time

He further proposes to be courteous in his

return, but also a full and hearty co-opera
tion from all lawful dealers In liquor, in bis
efforts to break up those illegal and mis
chievous places of resort In which minors
and Sunday drinking are allowed and «en
couraged. It Is to these unlicensed and
clandestine establishment that crime owes
much of Its origin, and iu their continuance
the legitimate traffic in liquor may trace very
largely the suspicion and odium which at
taches to it, in the popular mind. Hence it
becomes alike tbe duty and interest of all
good citizens to aid the hand of Law and
Justice in arresting and eradicating so dam
aging an evil from the community.
It Is deemed unnecessary to say, that
while vigilauce and perseverance shall be
constantly employed in bringing to justice
all violators of the law, a ready disposition
will at all times be extended toward pro

THE FRIENDSHIP.
A Brief Hlatory of an Old Engine Com
pany.
Inasmuch as the Friendship Engine
pany of this city was 107 years old 3
day the following concise history of the
organization may be of Interest to firemen
and others : On the 22d of December, 1775,
74 persons, feeling the necessity of some
protection against lire, organized themselves
into a company aud called it the Friendship
Fire Company No. 1, of Wilmington, Del.
Each member pledged himself to furnish,
during a fire, two leather buckets aud a
large wicker basket with two handles, and
when a member left his house, upon an
alarm of fire at night, he was obliged leave
a lighted candle In the window for the pur
pose of informing a passing member that he
had gone to the fire. If no candle was to
be seen it became the duty of the member
passing to scop and awake the sleeper.
The following 16 a list ot the members of
the company at that time : Jacob Broome,
Isiael Brown, Nicholas Way, Job Harvey,

Some time after the organization of the
company they procured an old pumping
engine from a French frigate. During that
time there were no fire plugs, and the engine
had to be fed by buckets. The company
used the engine for a number of years when
they procured one of more, modern style»
aud build. This
present one was built. It was contracted
for on the 1st of April, 1869, aud arrived
here on July 3d of the same year. It is a
second-class Gould improved Amosksag,
and has done noble duty.
The tirst house of the company was built
on Market street above Sixth, where the
Smith Building now stands. The house
was a two-Btpry frame building, with a
tower and bell. From there tbe company
removed to a frame building at the North
west corner of Ninth and King, thence to
Orange street above Tenth, to the building
now occupied by the colored Odd FellowB.
They remained there until they removed to
their present location, iu 1859. This house

A Big Market.
After two daya of rain and discomfort the
clouds blew aside last ni^ht, much to the
gratification and relief of the market folks
who had stood all yesterday iu the wet aud
damp. The market yesterday promised to
be unusually large, and by this morning the
line of wagons extended from the railroad
almost to Tenth street, there being, by act
ual count, 350 in line. By daylight the
customers began to arrive,the crowd getting
denser aud denser, until at 10
o'clock it was almost impossible to make
perceptible headway between Second and
Seventh streets. The farmers had brought
every available bit of product, animal and
vegetable, they could spare, and the dis
plays offered were tempting both to the
epicure and the gourmand. Turkeys,
geese, rabbits, celery, pigs feet, ducks, sir
loin steaks, carrots, butter, mince meat,
potatoes, cabbage, eggs, sausage, and edi
bles generally were commingled in kaleido
scopic confusion. Prices ranged high, but
buyers seemed to have plenty of money and
mauy stalls were soon cleared of their
offerings.
