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.

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

At the junction Charles
got off with the
intention of going Imefc »o Atlantic City in

the body was taken after the accident hap

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

surprised when Qld of the accident.

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

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

Cotton Crop In th*« Memphis District
Memphis, August 3.— The cotton crop re
port of the Memphis district., which embraces
North Mississippi, West Tennessee, North
Arkansas and North Alabama, as compl ed
by Hill,Fontaine «& Co.,for the month of July
says: The cotton plant, which was stunted
by the cold spell of May 21 to 24, has utyer
fully recovered from the damage then
sustained, and the draught which has
prevailed since early fn July has prevented
a heavy growth of the plant, and the
injury has proved permanent. Uu
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. Reports from Georgia repre
sent the condition of the crops as less favor
