A dispatch rc-clred at the depot of the Philadelphia, Wilmington ,t Baltimore rail road tula afternoon shortly before 3 o'clock from Edgcmoor stated that an unknown man had been struck and Instantly killed by the north-bound limited express as he was walking the track. The limited rune at a blgb rate of speed, and when, be vu struck he was burled to oue side, liadly mangled. Tue whistle, it seems, had been blown but be Id no a 'anti, u to It. A special train In charge train dispatcher Briton left lor Edgemoor to bring the body Into town ad 3.01. X m, 1 .O LATER DETAILS. brought to the depot about 2.20, in charge of Detective Jones. The corpse Is that of a boy abouti? venru old and crippled. His lo*t foot and leg are deformed d he had with him a stout crutch. He 1« ebabbUy dressed, his shoes were much woru and he had no stcu-king» ou. The accident happened between Edge and Shelipot creek at a point where tne two limited expresses met. He was, when first seen, on the north bound track, walk ing toward Wilmington, and the suppo sition Is that he stepped on to tho South bound track to avoid the north bound train, not noticing the dther one coming behind him. Belore the engineer could whistle or reverse ths engine the locomotive struck him, knocking him Into the ditch. The trs*n at once stopped and a brskeman was left In charge of the body,-while a dispatch was sent to this city of the accident. The poor boy had a terrible gash In the back part of the head, and his deformed leg was broken. Death must have been In stantaneous, but these were the only out ward evidences of injury. Shortly before the accident happened th* lad, who walked with difficulty, stopped a' the station. Cornelius Phipps of this city, who happened to be At the elation, took an Interest in the friendless lad and asked him some questions about himself. The boy stated that he lived lu Baltimore and had lien persuaded by two other boys his own age to leave home, and go tramping around the country. At their solicitation he had done so, and with them he had traveled from Baltimore to a point near Phila delphia in a box car. He became disheartened and heartily sick of the esc ipade, and at the same Mme being taken sick, he concluded'to des*rt bis bad com panions and return home to his mother, with whom he had lived In Balti more. This was two days and ho had been walking the railroad track ever since. L ist night he had slept in the open air and lie said he was sick and hun gry, and be bitterly lamented that be bod The body h a T I ran away. Leaving; Mr. Pliippn, the boy proceeded down the railroad track, and a lew minutes afterward met hie awful death already de tailed. The body was placed in charge of Under taker Halmerand a dispatch waa sent to the Baltimore authorities with instruction* to ascertain who the dead lad's relatives were. Ilia name b unknown.

Dramatic and Social— 1 lie Citizen* De bating Club. fSpecial correspondence of the Gazelle. 7 Newark, Feb. 23.— The drama "Chim ney Corner," presented by the Athenian Literary Society on Tuesday evening last, was a "rand success.

The Citizens' Debating Club, which meets every Saturday evening in the Grange room ot the Exchange Building, is growing in in terest and numbers. At the lirst meetings only a very tew persons attended the meet ings, but us our citizens have begun to realize their importance and in terest to them the room is crowded at each meeting. The college students beginning to Ügure quite prominently lu the debates, and though young lu years, 'tis no uncoinmou thing lor them to get the betterof their opponents even though tliey he our Influential men. The question* debated are those which our v State Legislature has to deal with, and I think often, our Legislators would be profited could they hear the argument. Last ttaturdav evening the question of "Represen tation According to Population," waa before the house, audconsiderable vim was evinced * by the debaters. The question for next Saturduy evening is Delaware." A laucy dress party was held at the resi dent e ol Edward Wilson last evening. The atlair was a grand one, and those who had the extreme priviVee of being present had a most, enjoyable t m •. The costumes were rich and elabo at , and the refreshments plenteous and extensive, aud the whole affair wa« one that would bring honor upon a "nabob" of a city. Prof. W. D. Mackey who bas We and coufincd to Ids room for several days in able to resume his recitations at the college. Washington's birthday was celebrated here by two flags tieing tuyp« nd«-d 1'rom the win dows of two of our citizens.
