New Y •tained their old political hold on the people for But such is the case, are four years, and all the people rejoice at the down fall of this imported prophet in Delaware. This prophet has been delirious since last November, and from reports it looks his reason is clean gone forever. Let us hope for the best, good it may be that he will survive until the month of November, 1884, when the earth will be shaken by the burniugof Dem ocratic p«)wder, announcing to all the people that lraud aud deception are driven out ot high places, and that honesty not ouly rules Delaware but at Washington. You may ask what caused tinued Republican distress and sickness here. I will give you the main cause. At the election held last November, in New Castle county, with a population of 80,000 people, it was proven by the returns that there were 241 more Democrats iu the county than there were Republicans. Now the jorlty must rule,aud will rule,s«» you see that this sic» aud dead party has nothing to do say, about rights, law-making and the expenditure ol taxes. The majority con sisting of the Democratic party have the right to do all thiugs, aud if this distressed party lose wh t little brains they had before the election, they no d-»ubt will be taken care of. A place has been provided by the Poor Committee over in New Castle hun dred. Again, Kent county has 553 more Demo crats than Republicans; Sussex county has 1,264 more Democrats than Republicans,and ere last November 1,957 more Dem ocrats in Delaware than there were Repub licans. It looks to me and many others that the edit Republican have not lost their reason, and should be advised to carry on job printing, ami let newsj»a|>er publishing alone.

A Rotten Wharf Precipitates Two Hun dred People Into the Water—Frightful Beenes and Incident«. Baltimore, Md., July 24. —Not 6ince the blowing up of the steamer Medora in the harbor of Baltimore has the city b«en vis ited by such a dire calamity as that of last night, when nearly 70 lives were lost by the giving away of the pier at North Point, Tivoli, an excursion resort, about 13 miles from this city. Under the auspices of a beneficial society connected with the Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church, an annual excurstou was given, which was attended by over 1,000 people. Three trips the barge Cockade City made to the Point, taking down and bringing back passengers. At 9 o'clock she arrived at the wharf for her last complement'. Pretty well tired out and anxious to secure good seats the people made a rush to get on board as soon as the barge made fast to the pier. Full 200 crowded on ibe narrow pier. Rev. W. E. 8t*rr, pastor of the church, who accom panied the excursionists, and the gatekeepers vainly requested the people again and again to keep back, but as usual in such cases, their cautions were not regarded, and dire forbod rily and happily, and with ings that death lay so near, the throng pressed forward to their late. in to DOWN INTO THB WATER. Sudden lay a crash was heard and in an Instant, before the eyes of the terrified spec tators, the end of the pier was seeu to give way, and a wild cry of agony was heard from the unfortunate persons who went down into the water with the debris of the wharf. This wild cry was repeated from their relatives and friends, who were at the grove, and who paus d in the several sporis in which 'hey were engaged, horrified at the fearful spectacle presented to them. Most of those on the ^roken pier were young people. A number were rendered unconscious by In furies from the timber of the pier, others from fright, but there was a large portion of those thrown into the water who struggled desperately for their lives. Mapy sank into the water from haustion, others were pulled down by those who were drowning, while by the efforts of their friends a large pioportion were rescued and brought safely to land. BRINGING OP THE DEAD AND DYING. In the meantime efforts to rescue the drowning persons were being made by a few brave young men,and a number of dead bodies, and others who were well-nigh dead, were hi ought up and lay dripping on the wlmrf. One young man, Herman Walters, taking off his outer clothing, gave them to the priest to hold, aud, jumping overboard, saved no less than eignteen people. Inspired by this man's heroism, several others fol lowed his example, aud quite a number were thus saved. The moon had not yet arisen aud the work progressed under the fitful light of a few lanterns which had been brought from the boat and grounds. A number ol bonfires bad been started on the shoie to allow those who had been cued to dry their clothing, and these lent a weird and ghastly light to the scene. Ac cording to the statement of the scene baffled description. Men and wo men were shrieking and yelling and chil dren eryiug; while from the dark i byss be low the most he irti ending cries were heard, only to end in gurgliug sounds as the help less beings succumbed to the cruel waters. eye wltuess ILL-JUDGED ACTIONS. Then ensued a scene of indescribable con fusion. Stools, pieces of plank, everything available, were thrown into the water right in the midst of the struggling mass, until it became evident that 6«une who might be saved from «leath by drowuing would be come victims of the heedlessness of those who, with the best intentions, but very poor judgment, were casting the heavy articles into the water. Father Starr tried his utmost to calm the tumult, but he might stop the earth from revolving. Those who were on laud had suddenly conceived the idea that the boat go on board. Almost half ol the excur sionists passed the night around the blazing fires on the shore, where the shivering vivors who had been rescued from the waves were seeking to dry their «Dipping clothing. THE CALMNESS OF DESPAIR. well have tried to unsafe and refused to the ground during the night awful. One of those who The scenes are described stood by the fires watching for morning said to-day that he would not pass another such night for the crown of a kingdom. Shriek the night passed iug women grew calm by, but their calmness was that of despair. The noisy cries of children, the hoarse shouts of men and tins piercing notes of grief oi the women were as nothing to the terrible silence that preceded the dawn for a lew hours, when nothing was heard but ccasional dull moan or the call of ope of those who were watching by the shore for the bodies of tho dead. About 35 bodies were within the first hour taken from the water, 29 of whom were placed on the barge and brought to the city. The barge arrived at Henderson's Wharf at tacle in the cabin was bodies of men and •re lying 2 a. m ., and the speci a piteous one. The women, youths ami children, side by side in death, their couuteuauces hlbiting «error and fear, an i their clothing torn and soiled. On hoard were a number of relatives, parent* ami friends of the dead, who seemed to be beyond all consolation. A large number of persons were on board Henderson's wharf, waiting with great anxiety for the comiug in of the barge, fear ing from it not returning at the usual hour that some accident had occurred. When the tact was known to them a scene of intense excitement followed and the crowd rushed on the boat an 1 eagerly scanned the faces of the dead. Some lew recognized the coun tenance '*f a friend, but the majority of the relatives aud friends of the deceased were waitlug at Light street wharf for the return 01 the barge and did not hear of the -alamity until morning, when they proceeded to Henderson's wharf, ami another sceue of sorrow and grief commenced, which lasted for some hours, until nearly all of the drowued had been identified and claimed by their families. WAS THE PIER ROTTEN?—THE MANAGER THINKS NOT, WHILE THE PRIEST BELIEVES IT WAS. Mr. Frank Debilius, manager of Tivoli, states tha- the accident caused by persons crowding too closely toward the gate at the end of the wharf, although he and hie sub ordinates had doue al! iu their power to keep them back. He did not think the wharf was weak or rotten, as great crowds had gathered on it before. He was much dis tressed, an«t says the scene presented when the people went down with the broken pier to darkness aud to death was too harrowing to be inscribed. Most of the victims were women, aud in nearly every case young girls in the flush of maitieuhood. Rut in their appearance there was ample evidence of the death in horrid sha(>e which they had en dured. In many instances their faces were discolored, bruised aud bloody, and clotted bl<x>d ooxed from mouth, nose and ears. When carried off the boat the bodies were laid side by side in the shed, to the left of the for / wharf, at the entrance which I* Known as the storehouse. The faces were covered with cloths, and the hands were crossed ou the breast and tied together. The feet were also tied. Opinion as to the cause of the pier giving wav is divided. Many think it was rotten, and this is Father Starr's conviction. Others say that the wharf did not break,but that the piles spread. Several who ex amined the timbers after the accident de clared that they were as sound as could be, but that the piles were not planted with sufficient security, nor were they close enough together in the centre, but were most all upon the outer edge of the pier, to save the blows of the vessels in making a landing. The crowd stood in a ouuch on the centre of the wharf, which was but poorly sup ported underneath by logs,and consequently the jarring of the barge, when she struck the wharf, gave the shock which caused the piles, poorly secured, to spread and letdown the centre of the wharf, with its crowd of living beings, into the water. The planks were of course unable to support the heavy weight of over 200 persons, and so snapped short off, thus giving rise to the supposition that they had broken through being rotten. Tivoli is about 13 miles from the city, and the pier that gave way • was built in 1809. The water near the edge is about nine feet deep, sloping from the shore. At the ex treme end of the pier, where the boats un load their human freight, a wharf lute been built upon piles driven down, about 100 feet long and 50 feet broad. It was this structure that gave w ty, and its distance from the shore <6 900 feet. Til RILLING SCENES AND INCIDENTS An sion, chair.

In the excitrueut we couldn't tell who was who, and to make It worse the people on the boat kept throwing down everything they could lay their hands on. They even threw the coal oil lamps overboard,and took away what little light there was. A little fellow who started to swim from a crowded log to one not so crowded was struck by a stool. It stunned him and he was drowned. A man caught hold of me and twisted his legs around my body. I tried to get away . He tried to stick. We had a regular fight. We suuk and struggled in the mud. It liked to killed both of us. but I managed to get away and save myself. ' One of the braveßt heroes of the disaster was Herman Walters. He saved 15 grown persons and three children. He is a young man about 22 years old, rather stout, with full, smooth features and dark hair. When seen by a reporter, he wore a blue shirt and dark trousers. He had on the same outfit Monday sight. It was very bard to get him to talk. The story of his efforts is tbrillingiy interesting. He says: "When the bridge fell I was 35 feet away from the place of the accident. The shouts of the unlortuuate men and women, as they sank in the water, struck terror to ever breast. The crowd ou the portion oi the bridge yet unharmed rushed to the shore. I pushedforward to theedge. "Forheaveu's sake in brown. "Here, sit on my bodv while I leau over and pull this foung lady," 1 said to a young man standing near. I then laid down.

I lost my balance and both the young lady and myself iell heavily t> gether to the bottom. The lady at once clung frantically around my neck and ren dered me helpless. I tried to get sway but could not. We sank, and, coining up again, sank the second time. It was life to one or death to both. I caught my teeth in her arm and bit it severely. She let go and disappeared. She was drowned. I was dragged out almost exhausted.

One of the Party Recently Arrested Brandywine by the Police Makes a State ment. One of the persons arrested on the banks of the Brandywine last Friday morniug, desires to sa> that the report published iu the News and Republican was false in every particular 6ave that of playing cards. He says that when three tramps came up the banks of the stream and pulled out seven BhirtB and a pair of pants from a valise and the grass to dry, the same officer who made the arrest passed within 20 feet of tljein several times without saying a word, but took particular pains to arrest a party of men playing a social game away from the regular walks who were disturbing uo one and who never insulted» passer by. The tramp was al lowed to stay very near the path the whole afternoon, while the arrested party was on the top of the hill. The officer (Turner) employs mo6t of his time in loafing around Smith's stan«!. It makes very little differ ence to him what is going on so long as he draws his pay. The party wishes it under stood that they have as good a home as the officers no matter what officer Hatton 6ays to the contrary. If the officers would lie less and attend to their duties more, the city would be greatly benefltted. the laid them by HOARD OF HKAL8H. An Unusually Busy Session Held LMt Night. The Hoard of Health met in regular ses sion, last evening, President Bush in the chair. The nuisance in the rear of the property No. 707 Market street, belonging to Mrs. Thai cher, was two weeks ago ordered t' be abated within 10 day, and as the time had expired the Board discussed what should be done, but took no action. The nuteauce from the pig pens in Silver Brook was reported abated. The complaint oi tile condition of Pleasant street was re ferred to the Street Commissioner. President Bush next staled that the little child who died of small pox, near Sixth and Sixth and DuPont streets, was first buried in the back yard, but during the week it was taken up and reinterred in the Potter's $30, of The first If not field. The entire cost involved which the Trustees of the Poor had already paid $4 for a coffin, and expressed their wil lingness to pay $5 more. As this was a of emergency the Board saw proper to allow $10 lor the first interment in the yard, but would not pay the bill for the removal, as that had not been ordered. The Board unanimous in the opinion that the Trustees of the Poor should pay the entire hill, as the burden belongs to the county. The matter was deferred for one week to allow Dr. Springer to argue the matter before the Trustees at their quarterly meeting to-day. President Bush reported that the Street Commissioner had secured hose and cairiage with which to flush the gutters which are covered with iron plates The secretary was ordered to notify the B. & 0.
