Tlie Httrrlaburg» Rout Brooklyn's Htrong Team—The American Association Con tea ta —No League Games. Pottsvillb, August 8.—The Anthracite» jumped on the Quickstep in the first inning to-day and secured a lead which the visitors could not wrest from them. Fox was hit hard and sent four men to bases on balls. His pitching was wild and Cusi k caught with difficulty. Reynolds, on the other hand, worked with Graay like clock-work. The game was well played, A unis, McLaugh lin, Holland and Knowles making brilllaut plays, tbe latter accepting nineteen out ol twenty chances.

Holland HARKIS BUKO AND BROOKLYN. hm Harkisburo, August 8.—The Harrisburg club gained a very creditable championship victory over the Brooklyn to-day, defeating them by a score of 5 to 1. The Brooklyn could not hit Schappert, making but three, while the Harrisburg pounded Kimber for 10 hits, with a total of 14. The feature of the game was a catch by Scbenck, of Brook lyn, at third of a ball that went like a flash of lightning. It was the finest catch ever made on the grounds. McCatferty, the um pire, who came near bei.:g mobbed day, was very fair to-day. The following is the score : Tues Harrisbarg ., Brooklyn — 1010 2 010 x~ 6 0 0 0 1 THE ACTIVES WIN A GAME.

The score was as follows: Allegheny Metropolit 200 2 0000 0—4 OltillOOOO .3 OOLUMBÜB AND ECLIPSE. tan Columbus, O., Aug. 3.— -The Columbus nine a v-ry elose and Interesting game with the Eclipse of Louisville, this after noon. The batting of both clubs was weak and the fielding at times rather loose, yet the extreme closeness of the contest was sufficient to make it one of the most exciting games of tbe season. The following is the summary : Eclipse 00020000 0-2 Uolumbus. 01 100000 1—3 8T. LOUIS FALLING BEHIND. Cincinnati, O., Aug. 3.—A great game was expected between the Cincinnati and St. Louis to-day, aud the hopes oi the 3,300 spectators were fully realized. The home team crawled out of a very small hole in the ninth inning, but the score counts all the same. The pitchers had most of the work to do. as the batting was light on both sides. The score was as follows: Cincinnati., at, Louie ... .. o 0,0 0 0 0 0 0 4-4 ... 1U000002 0-3 A GAME THROWN AWAY. Philadelphia, August 3.—The Balti mores made 16 errors In their game with the Athle'ics this alteruoon and thereby suffered wildly, an 1 such bard hitters as Blrchall, dtovey and Moyuah^u he would teud to their bases without placing a ball withtng strik ing distance. It is very probable that if the bitching had been more regui etics would have suffered a defeat, aud O'Brien, of the Baltimore, batted in graud style, and Corey carried off all the honors in the field. Striker had an off day, aud Say, while making some brilliant plays, also must be credited with several very damaging errors. The Athletic obtained a run in the first inning by errors, and were then whitewashed Iu the meantime the Baltimore secured four runs on four base hits, Clinton clearing the page with a two baser in the second inning, after the side Iu the fourth iuuing the Athletic made a couple of runs although neither were earned. Moy nahan hit heavily ior two bases in this inning. In the filth inning the Athletic got five runs the fielding ol the Baltimore being execra ble, and Henderson sending three men to bases. Another run was also made in the uext tuning, completing a total of nine. In the meantime tto visitors, while hitting hea vily, failed to bunch their hits until the eighth inning, when two earned ruus were scored by a single by Rowe, a three-base by Leary and a good single by McCormack.

A Maui Who AaaOèra scrlpUon otCbarlerf'NTfcar KJJlad op tha West Jersey Railroad. Charte Neher, who boarded at 829 East Second street, and bis brother Joseph, were among'Are excttrtsonists to Atlantic City, giv«o by tbe Ifoiyna Social Club on Tjburs day last, since which time neither have been seen hi this city. Thla fact coupled with the dispatch received ft Tennagrove yesterday statlug that a *oan, supposed -Co be one of ercursiontst# who accompanied the Norma Social club to Atlantic City, had been killed at Weÿinouth station, «bout 19 miles « est of Atlantic City. • -g the West Jersey and Atlantic rallrdad On Thursday night is supposed to be conclusive proof that the man killed was Charles Neher, as tbe des criptlon of the man tallies In every particu lar witii that of him. At the junction Charles got off with the intention of going Imefc »o Atlantic City in seaich of his brother Jose h, who hal been left. Intelligence from May'sLaudiug,where the body was taken after the accident hap pened, is to the effect that tbe man was struck by the limited express which leaves Atlantic City at about 11 o'clock. The body was bully mangled, the top of the head being torn off and both arms and legs being severed from the trunk. Inquiry ab- -ut this city tailed to reveal any definite proof, and oven thf young uneu who arrived from Atlantic Ciéy last evening were unable to give any facts and appeared surprised when Qld of the accident. Should the mau killed tarn out to be Charles Neher It will account for tlie ab sence of Joseph, as a telegram from May's Landing state that the body 1« taken care of by a relative. The following is «dipped from the Phila delphia Pr « fi of to-day, Excursionists on the West Jereey Rail road yesterday were horrified to see an arm, lungs and a rib of a human being alongside the track, about three miles above May's Landing. On Thursday night about 6 o'clock a drunken man, who was creating a disturbance, was put off au excursion train coming from At lantic City, just about the point where the remains were discovered. It is presumed that the second section of the train rau overand killed him. Part of the remains were put on the baggage-car and taken to Newfield and the rest left to He where found. BLOCKING TBR B. A O. Gray's Ferry Gridironed with Surveys by the i'eu ii sylvan la Road. [Philadelphia Record.j A petition wall yesterday filed by the re cently incorporated Schuyktli River East Side Railroad Company in Cöürt of Com mon Pleas, No. lJor the approval of a bond tendered to the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad, to secure tothat company the payment of damages ,firw the taking of a piece of land on the ehst'slde of the river, between Forty-eigh'b and Forty ninth streets, in the Twenty-seventh ward. The two companies were unable to agree upon tbe value of the land. The petition is the beginning of a bitter warfare consequent upon Baltimore and Ohio Rai entrance into this city for its extension from Baltimore. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has opened the war in the vicinity of Gray's Ferry by running lines of survey In at least forty directions, until the whole section thereabouts may be said to be fairly gridironed with surveys. These are all in tended to keep the Baltimore and Ohio out. The Reading, the ally of the Baltimore aud Ohio, that has volunteered to get it into the city, states through some of ite officers that it has other lines in paind besides those named. the efforts of the lroad to effect an An Unfortunate BrAkeman. The head brakemiin of the fast freight train going south, John B.renan, was run over at the West Yard last evening about 6.20 o'clock and bad his right arm and shoulder bally mutilated. He was sitting upon tbe railroad track Waiting for his train to be made up,when a aiiifter backed a train down upon him before he was aware of his danger. He was placed in a ear and taken at ouce to the hospital room et the P. W. & BV fa 1 road station and attended by Dr. Kane. His collar hope was fonfid to be broken, his arm and hand badly crushed and the bones broken in several places. The unfortunate man's home M in Latrobe, Pa., but he now boards in Philadelphia, where he was taken on the 9.55 p. m. train last night.

To the Editor of the Gazette: Cy clones of wind and water are having their days of riot and miu, and the dostcucrloti of property ha-, been fearful far and wide over this fair land of ours. There are other cyclones as destructive, the mental and social a* the physical cosmos. A sweeping through well us well as few months or treftrs will oblftuateall traces, on disturbed nUtnre, but wlm or what abaft restore tbe status of the other? Mouths bavé passed since tbe cyclonic wave sw.ipt over the i ttle world of tbe Chesapeake and Delaware Canal Company; <he second in fact during the past 12 month* To judge from present hppeärai.c affair* arc not in kv flourishing condition *« tin- lounholdi ib couhl wV-Ti, and' they jar.* likely to be no' i>.*if-r under the Wilkin.» .-oiuething sm1id-4ti»ii tor years, tin company is losing ground yearly. fn fact, since 1876, the loss merits boon more that. $112,000, or at tue fare of $16,000 per tuimni. There ha* bcéuj ; n extract dinarv, so called, expense account since that dute, taking the average toy series of years; if it be not a lock repair a new d edger, it may be a new bridge: possibly new hollers for pumping works; some euch items are expected troai yeaf to year, aid are provided for the average yearly expense estimates. The loss referred to of $16,000 yearly, has been made good, as needed, from the contingent fund, fund was created in 186* as a protection to the mortgage loan of the company, In case of any serious disaster to the canal or its works. The surplus revenues of the com pany have been invested in other securities than said Mortgage Loan until 1876, as will be seen from the annual reports, at which time the fund had to its credit $151,000, to be applied to payments on account of any damage to the canal, thus avoiding the bor rowing of money for sueh purpose outside the company's own treasury. From the company's reports, it will be seen that the financial condition of the company was satisfactory, although the revenue bad been falling off for several years previous. 8till the Company enjoyed a fair share of the trade moving north and south. In 1877, it was deemed advisable by the managers, that the Canal Company Bhould obtain the right to transport passengers and freight, which included that of owning steamers, wharves, &c., necessary for that kind of business. This right was obtained by the proper legislation, and became apart of tbe original charter of the company, but, or some reason better known to a few of the members of the management, this valuable franchise has not been made profitable, at least oot for the benefit of tbe stock and loanholders of the Canal Company. The loanholders are auxlous about the present condition of things, and the feeling is that of fear that another cyclonic wave will certainly come, but only to the utter ruin of the prospects of the stockholders. Is there no remedy? Yes, beint a loanholder myself and hving some knowledge of the company's affairs, a few suggestions or ideas are thrown out and offered to the man agers who have the welfare of the company at heart The canal prop, r it> only 14 miles in length; is in the best con dition, and has a lock capacity tor passing steamers of 510 tons freight room. The revenue of the Canal Company is derived from various permanent sources, among them, that received from the Erricsson Steam Lines, the most valuable. The ton nage of these lines in past years has been very heavy, and, as a source of revenue for the Canal Company very valuable, so much so, that it was considered a paramount im portance to foster and encourage an increase of It by all the protection within its then power. Siuce 1872, there has been no in crease of tonnage by these lines, but other wise, a falling off; especially is this notice able in the traffic between New York and Baltimore, via canals. It would be sup posed that the natural growth of the large cities and the adjacent country, from which the steam lines dertve their business, would show a corresponding Increase of tonhage and freight revenue to these companies, but it is not apparent to those most interested in the welfare of tbe canal company. If the truth must be made known, these lines of steamers are and have been fbr long years enjoying a monopoly of the freight«between Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York via the canals, the printed public "Circular" of certain of the directors of the G. & D. C. Co. to the coutrary notwithstanding. This is believed by the business community at large, and is well known to a few favored ones. As a consequence of this monopoly, the profits of these steam lines in the past have been very large, and now for the suggestion: Let the canal company transact Its own legitimate businees—the transportation of freight and passengers between the cities mentioned; put the profits, wbat there may be of such, much or little, in its ovro pocket, and adopt the modern improvements in the transaction of such business. Then the result will follow —no shortage account of revenue at the end ■of each year; the loan of the company goiug back again to par or néar that desirable end; and last, not least, the loan maturing in 1886 oan without a dlsoount be extended Loanholdek.

Uu ' most of the weather during the ne*t weeks there will be a decreased yield iu the Memphis district of at least per cent.as compared with last year. The rains during the past few days have doubtless afforded partial relief, but the growing cotton crop continues iu a critical state, and is subject sfill further injury by unfavorable weather, while the smallness of the plant warrants feare of great damage in the event of an- early frost.
