Forty houses in a block are about being commenced on Jefferson Place, which is one square west of Oak street, in the Bolt. That section of the 9th district is growing wonderfully and will soon be solidly built up.

Granu Jury will be called upon to investigate the charge that the ohildren in the Union Cotton Mills are being worked over ten hours per day. There are said to be a large number of ap plicants from Baltimore county lor positions in the Baltimore Custom House, a very large per centage of whom must be disappointed, as it is as serted the county will get only its proportion with the rest. Nearly a week of cold, rainy weather is not enjoyable at any time of the year, but at this par ticular season, when we are anxiously looking lor that “ethereal mildness” of which rpring poets tell us, it is extremely disagreeable, besides dan gerous to health. Since the completion of the New Freedom and Stewartstown railroad the latter pla-e is get ting to be an important tobacco market. One day last week 105 wagon loads of tobacco changed hands there and 118,000 lbs. were shipped by the railroad the same day. A Towsontown man, while making a visit to the Treasury Department in Washington, a few days ago, saw a package of greenbacks that contained over four million dollars. The sight almost paralyzed him and he has hardly been able to get his eyes straight since. John Miller was tried in the Circuit Court here last week for tho murder of Robert Dorsey, and acquitted. The case was removed from the • city and both the accused and murdered man were colored. Messrs. Wm. F. Wharton and John T. Mason R., were counsel for Miller. night the bill to exempt the Maryland Centrnl R. R. Co. from local taxation in Baltimore and Har ford counties for a period of ten years, was unfa vorably reported from the commit-ee and the re port was adopted. This kills the bill. Mr. Jesse S. Bell, a well-known citizen of Govanstown, who has beeD confined to bis house all winter by illness, has improvod so much that he was able to visit Towsontown on Thursday. Mr. Bell has carried on the blaokswithing busi ness in Govanstown for forty-four years. Miss Agnes G. Starkey, who last week took the white veil at Monte Maria Academy, Rich mond, Va., is a sister of the late Rev. Father Starkey, who formerly had charge of tho Catholic church in Long Green Valley. She is a daugh ter of Mr. John D. Starkey, of Baltimore. On the 18th of the present month the Mary land Central railroad (formerly the Balto. A Del ta) will have been in operation four years. Dur ing that time but ono fatal accident has happened _ r L 0 billifw* nf ksnlrnmnn Qhrytlr of th Hill#n roaa crossing, in lowsontown, Tu?t summer. Persons who use the Frick line cars to reach Boundary avenue station of the Maryland Central R. R., should be particular to board only the terra cotta colored onc3, as none of the other cars cross Boundary avenue bridge. The signs on the front of these cars are “Waverly” and “Boundary,” and can be easily distinguished. offered to advance the $9,500 provided for iu the bill passed by the Legislature to erect a school house at Calverton, as soon as the necessary ar rangements can be made, and if done, this w 11 obviate the necessity of waiting until the county levy is made to commence work. There were a number of small land-slides on the Maryland Central road on Wednesday, caused by the unusually heavy rain of that day. The passenger train which left Baltimore at 4 o’clock Wednesday afternoon did not reach Delta until 7 o’clock Thursday morning. The damage, which was not serious, was soon repaired. We hope Messrs. Spencer and Gilm-'r, re ceivers of the Maryland Central road, will devote some attention to the station at Towsontown. Con sidering the importance of this station the accom modations are shockingly poor and inadequate and no time should be lost in giving us something better, and particularly as the same can bo done at very small cost. Any man who will take a seat in a passen ger car and cover the floor with a pool of tobacco juice—to the disgust of all descent people—should have his money refunded and be ejected from the train at the next station. Ladies and gentleman should Dot be compelled to occupy a car with such • a brute, by the side of which the great American hog is an exampler of good manners. The Maryland Central company is about to construct an apparatus for lifting the body of a standard-gauge freight car from its track and de positing it upon a truck to fit the narrow-gauge, thus doing away with the necessity for breaking bulk of freight in transferring it from other roads This will facilitate the shipping business of the road, obviating both delay and extra labor. Several prominent members of the Balti more county bar went to Washington last Satur day in the interest of Hon. J. Fred. C. Talb >tt for District Attorney. They carried with thorn a number of strong letters of endorsement from lead ing members of the Baltimore and Harford coun ty bar, which they left with the Attorney-Gener al, the President being tut of the city at the time. The Towsontown restaurant man who on Thursday (All Fool’s Day) set up a tempting look ing fried oyster to each of his customers, had his own littlo fun besides furnishing amusement to many others. The cotton with which the oyster was “stuffed” was tougher than a boarding-house chicken, and tho countenance of the man who tried to chew it was longer than a mill race. Strange that it is always the “smartest” people who are roped in on such little tricks. The piano-makers who, previous to the strike, worked in Stieff’s factory, Baltimore, have boycotted the firm to such an extent that they cannot even get a horse shod in thecity, but have work done. This strike grew ou of tbe’lact that the Messrs. Stieff refused to discharge a foreman who had been in their employ for more than twenty years, simply to gratify a whim of the men. An arbitrary system like thi3 can never succeed. The sale of the personal property of the late A. 11. S'ump took place in Green Spring Val ley last week and aggregated about $4,000. It was conducted by Col. 0. P. Macgill, auctioneer, who sold over six hundred lots of articles in about six hours. Good prices were generally obtained, the stock and many other things selling far in advance of the appraised value. One hundred and ninety-five barrels of corn were sold at $2.35 per barrel, or about 10 cts. per barrel above the ruling price. The County Commissioners, in accordance with the suggestion in Tiie Union of last week refused to pay Justico Lytle, of Waverly, for holding an inquest upon the body of Mr. llenry Zink, and they deserve credit for the stand they took in the matter. Now let them follow it up by refusing pay in every case except where an investigation is necessary to establish the cause of death. Such a stand will break up “the busi ness” of holding inquests and will save the coun ty many dollars. that tho County Commissioners are to sup ply Towsontown with a chemical engine, drawn by horses. We are opposed to these chemical machines, but as they aro better than nothing we will gladly accept one of them. We will favor any move that will be calculated to benefit the town, as in the matter of police and fire apparatus we think it has been greatly neglected. Let us have anything that will be calculated to make it more desirable as a place of residence. Hon. Joshua F. Cockey, of Cockeysville, one of our best known and most highly respected citizens, was in Washington laßt Saturday for the first time since 1836. Judge Cockcy, who is now about 86 years of age, has held a number of prom inent offices in Baltimore county, having been for several terms chief judge of tho Orphans’ Court He is one among the most wealthy and intelli gent citizens of the courty and it therefere ap pears strange that he should not have visited tho Nation’s Capital—a littlo more than fifty mdcs from his home—in fifty years, but such is tho fact. Catholics who Sell Liquor.—The decrees of the Third Plenary Council of Baltimore devote especial praise to societies for checking immor tality aDd drunkenness. In concluding the decree on ihe sale cf liquor the Bishops say : “We ad monish all the faithful who make their living by trading in the various liquors, to seriously reflect upon the many dangers and occasions of sin with which this business is surrounded, although in it self not forbidden. Let them choose, if possible, a more honorable method of acquiring a liveli hood, but should this not be feasible, they must endeavor to remove both from themselves and others all occasions of sin. Let them not sell in toxicating drinks to minors or to those whom they know to be habitual druukards. They must also close their stores on Sunday, and vigorously re fuse to allow blaspnemies, oaths or indecent con versation within their place of business.” Run Over by a Wagon.—A serious accident happened about 8 o’clock on Thursday night, on the York turnpike, a short distance above Tow sontown, to a young colored man named William Taylor, teamster for Mr. J. L. Caples, who lives on the farm of the late John O. Price, near Cock eysville. Ho was returning from the city with his wagon heavily loaded with phosphate, and in de scending tho bill he attempted to mount the saddle mule when ho fell, two wheels of tho wagon pass ing over his body. Several of bis ribs were broken and he was badly cut about the head, having been trampled upon by tho mules. He was removed to the house of his uncle, William Taylor, in Tow sontown, where ho was attended by Dr. James 11. Jarrett. Y'oung Taylor’s injuries are serious but not necessarily fatal. Narrow Escape.—Mr. John D. Weakley, of Sweet Air, made a narrow escape at Glenarm Sta tion, M. C. R. R., on Monday afternoon. He was on the north bound train, on his wa - home, and while the train was on the siding at Glenarm, waiting far the south bound, be got off and did not attempt to board it again until it was in mo tion. In doing so his foot slipped and he was caught between the car and the high platform. He held on to the hand railing and thus saved himself from being dragged under the car, and the only damago he sustained was a few bruises and torn clothing. Had he been on one of the front cars of tho train instead of the last one he could not have escaped without serious injury. 'This should prove a warning to others. Tried to Hang- Himaelf.—Thomas Stokes, attempted to commit suicide on Thursday morn ing last, at the public house of John Beal Watkins, in Long Green, this county. He was found hang ing with his head botween the spokes of a wheel which had been placed against the side of the bouse, several feet above the ground. He bad been banging about 10 minutes, and was almost dead, when he was discovered by Mr. Watkins and Isaiah Parlett, who took him from his perilous position. He was then taken to the Belair jail, to prevent his doiDg further injury to himself. His habits are good, but bis mind has been disordered from sickness. Wesley Chapel, lOth District. —Rev. Sam uel M. Alford preached hi- first sermon last Sun day at Wesley Chapel and made a good impres sion on the congregation. Both pastor and con gregation seem well pleased with each other. Mr. John Hunter, living near this place, has a very remarkable little girl, but 21 months old. that can sing ten or twelve songs very correctly. Mr. Hunter is a good vocal musician, and Mrs. Hunter is a fine organist. Mr. Thomas Lytle, son of Mr. Nicholas Lytle, who has been quite sick at the home of bis grand mother, Mrs. Ann Hughes, is now In an improv ed condition. A man named Baker, about 45 years of age, living at White Hall, and employed in the paper mill ot Wm. Wise, met with a very serious aoci dent last week. It appears that he slipped and fell into some of the machinery of the mill aDd had one of his hands torn very badly. Dr. Keech was immediately sent for and dressed the band and thought he could save it, but the next day when he visited the patient he found it necessary to amputate the arm, which he did, assisted by Drs. Mitchell and Norris. The operation was very successfully performed and at last accounts the patient was doing as well as could be expected. The meat house of Mr. Goo. Tysoji was broken open a few nights ago and a fine round of beef taken. Tho guilty parties should make their • visits few in this direction, or else they may meet with something they will not like vory muoh. A young man named Charles Miller, who was employed last summer by Mr. Samuel McNeil, to assist in threshing, afterwards worked at butchering with Mr. Young, of Monkton, but was discharged by the latter. Then he engaged board at Mr. Samuel Miller’s, and remaind there until last week, when he left for parts unknown. Before taking bis departure he forged a note on William and John Barnhart, with Thomas Nor ris as socurity, for the sum of $52, and offered it to Mr. Miller in settlement of his board bill, but Mr. Miller would have nothing to do with it. Mr. Miller asked him why he did not get a check from Mr. Norris, and sure enough, the next day he came with a check signed by Mr. Norris for $45, but Mr. Miller having bis suspicions aroused by that time, declined tho check also, and cautioned his family to bo on their guard. The forger then went to the store of Mr. Bosley, near by, and of fered him the check, saying at tbo same time that Mr. Miller would take it but that he wanted too much discount. Mr. Bosley believing tho story, cashed the check and is now just $45 out of pock et, the chock having been pronounced a forgery. jASiH*ltfi fter°?*fioarScrsi' l, i J fie n last heard of him he was in Harrisburg. Thu citizens of Monkton had been cautioned about this fellow by some one in the neighborhood who knew him, but it don’t seem to have had the desired effect. Mr. League, living at Pleasant Valley, who buried his wife about a year ago, has within the last two weeks buried two of his children, aged 17 and 20 years. They all died from consumption. C. Western Run, Bth District.—April, the second of the spring months, brings with it a busy season for the farmer. He has thus far done con siderable plowing for oats but has seeded little in the past month, and if he remembers last season he will not be discouraged, for the greater part of last year’s crop was sown in April and proved one of unprecedented yield. The planting of potatoes will also occupy his time, from the fact that every year yields its own as they cannot be kept over for another year. In seeding, plant from large seed, and I would ad vise those who have potatoes stoied in damp cel lars, to remove them to some high and dry place: •also rub off sprouts occasionally and they will keep for months Now is a good time to select seed corn and it can be done in this way with little trouble. When feeding stock, lay aside the largest ears and in a short time you will have all you need After the 10th of this month I intend trimming apple trees, for the reason that the moon points down. Sales have been the order of the day for the . past two months, and among them we find our friend Joshua Merryman selling out. Wo con gratulate the Dr. on his successful retirement. For the present he will reside with the Episcopal minister at St. John’s, and should ho attain unto the title of D. D., it would be an agreeable sur prise to his many friends. Mr. A. Cole of A., sold his personal effects on Monday last. During the progress of the sale Mr. Augustus Burgoyne was kicked in the face by a horse that was tied on the barn floor, knock ing him insensible, and a considerable timo elaps ed before he gained consciousness. The injury was regarded as very serious. The Harford Mutual Fire Insurance Company recently presented Mr. Jacob Fowble with a handsome silver watch and chain for his merito rious act in saving the barn from destruction at the time of tho burning of Mrs. E. G. Cole's resi dence. Ground has been broken at Butler for the erec tion of a fine little cottage near the store of Mr. J. IC. Gies It is being built by Dr. J. H. Drach, and Mr. Geo. Brooks is the contractor. The farm cf tho late Stephen Gill will bo culti vated partly by his son and brothers for the present. * Western Run. Fullerton, 12th District.—Part of the fam ily of Mr. John Tarbert have been suffering fiom malaria, but under the careful attention of Dr. A. X. Whiteford, they are rapidly convalescing. The Dr. is also attending Mr. Chas. Amos, who n t/p es -Arb m i rei*A ine a* /arrturr "Ar ra ~ .-own'in- >•a? - though he is yet unable to move his right arm or leg. A party was given on Thursday evening of last week hp Miss Clara Lambright, at the residence of her brother-in-law, Mr. Chas. McCormick, and all present were well pleased with the evening’s enjoyment, wnich consisted of games and vocal and instrumental music. About 11 o'clock the guests were invited to the dining room where they proceeded to relieve the table of its great variety and abundance of good things. The time passed so pleasantly that the night was far advanced be fore the happy company separated. Mrs. Chas. Van Cleaf has been at Fallston for the past week, where she was summoned to the bed side of her mother who is suffering from dioh theria. Her absence from tho debating society was greatly regretted. Mr. Samuel Fullerdied about 1 o’clock Wednes day afternoon, of softening of the brain, brought on by malarial fever and dyspepsia. He was a highly esteemed citizen and bad many friends His death will be a great loss to the family, of which he has been the main stay since the death of his brother, Alex. Fuller, about one year ago. The debating society discussed the question : Which is exposed to the greater hardships, the soldier or the sailor ? Decided 3 to 2 in favor of the sailor. A motion to meet every two weeks was voted to “be laid under the table” by a largo majority. Tho fishing party will be considered hereafter. N’impout. Eklo, oth District.—Mrs. Rebecca Wineholt is very ill with dropsy. It is reported that Mr. Lint Kelly has bought the house and lot of Mr. Iliehle, situated on the Middletown road, for ssoo. The most important event of last week was the baptism, by immersion, of twelve persons, lately converted at the Baptist meeting. It took place at tho dam of Mr. John Miller, on 25th ult. The single ladies were dressed in white, and the mar ried ones in black. The weather was not very favorable. Quite a largo number of spectators were present. As soon as the weather becomes warmer there are others desirous of baptism. There is less money afloat at this annual set tling day, viz: Ist of April, (a Pennsylvania cus tom) than has been for a number of years. The farmers are economizing and making but few improvements. This will be felt by the im plement and fertilizer venders. I was amused at hearing two important gran gers speak of the most profitable crops. One said buckwheat and apples paid him the best, while the other, who advocates home consumption, pri ded himself on beans, as the cheapest food to raise a crop ot children upon. This caused a smile to pass over the the faecs of the master of a near bv grange, noted for big wheat crops, and the hill side farmer, who had just realized on a big lot of rye and bundled straw. The general prevalence of colds is keeping the doctors busy. 0. Rossville, 12th District.—Prof. Jos. Ger man gave a inagie lantern entertainment n.t Reoh abito Hall, a few euenings since, wbich was both amusing and instructive. The Prof, was profuse in oral explanations and made frequent allusions to tho state of the country, itscurrency, Ac. The audience was large and appreciative. The re ceipts were fair and one-third of the proceeds wore given to tho public school. As I have been informed the B A O. R. R. Co. has decided to locate t depot on the premises of Mr. John S. Hays, at their crossing on tho Stem mer’s run race road, and a lot of land has been secured and laid out for that purpose. This station will be about two miles nearer to the city, when the road is completed, than the Stemmer’s run station on the P. IV. A B. R. R. Miss Emma Schisler died on March 11th, aged 17 years. Her illness was short and her death unexpectad. Rev. J. H. S. Clark returned from Harrisburg, Pa., on Saturday of last week, he having gone thore to attend the annual session of the Central Pennsylvania Conference M. E. Church, of which he is a member. His account of the growing wheat crop along tho route is quite encouraging. He met with several friends there who were for merly residents of Baltimore county, and learned that The Union occasionally finds its way there and is a welcome visitor. Principio. They Eg-ged Them Out of Town.—A Bal timore paper states that about a month or two ago a company of slight-of hand performers of Bal timore gave an exhibition in the Odd Fellows’ Hall of Wethcredvil e, Baltimore county. The people of that town warned the company never to visit the town again. Tuesday night last the same company, under an assumed name, attempted to give a second exhibition, when a crowd of men and boys, with seven dozen eggs, drove tho offenders out cf tho town. The people of Wotberedville claim that the company was a fraud, and are determined to deal in the same way with all such performers that visit their town. Sale of a Farm.—Mr. Johnzey Hook has sold hie farm, containing 35 acres, situated on the public road leading form Lutherville t Sherwood, to Mr. Edwin W. Levering, of Baltimore, for $6,500. Mr Levering, who will make some fine improvements upon the property, is a member of the firm of Taylor A Levering, coffee merchants. Hebbvllle, 2d District.—Mr. Joshua Meekine died suddenly on March 23d, at 10 o’clook p. n>-> of hemorrhage, and was buried on the 25tb in the Hebbville cemetery, aged 63 years and 18 days- The funeral sermon was preached in Si. Lukes M. E. Church by Rev Page Milburn. The de ceased leaves a widow and eleven children, three of whom a~e married and four quite small and de pendent. Mr. Meekins was an old and highly respected citizen of this community. His funeral was largely made up of our oldest citizens, whose locks have whitened with the frost? of many win ters. Quite a serious accident occurrod in this com munity a few days ago. Nellie F. Ritter, quite a prepossessing little girl of six years, foil into a bucket of boiliDg water, dreadfully scalding her right limb from the knee to the hip, which o ter ribly shocked her nerves ns to cause her dento on the 24th. She was buried on tho 25th, Rev. 11. N. Greninger preaching tho funeral sermon. No doubt maDy remember that about six months ago Mrs. Sarah A. Ritter, mother of little Nellie, com mitted suicide by cutting her throat while labor ing under an aberration of mind. Little Nellie wa? then taken to Mr. Wm. Edward Widermau’s, where the accident happened. Mr. George Saumenig, while driving up Cal verton hill on Friday of last week, had his foot caught urder the front wheol of the wagon, and had it not been for his groat dexterity and pres ence of mind bis limb would have been terribly crushed, but fortunately ho only received a bad strain of his ankle. Our new store, recently established by Messrs. August Detrner and Henry Loose, collapsed last week, and the business has all returned to Mr. William Piel. The pupils of the White Grounds private school had a gala time of it od March 26th. The teacher gave them a treat and the entire afternoon to play, which was entered into with youthful zest and greatly enjoyed by all. Owing to the inclemency of the weather the White Grounds Literary Society held no meeting Friday night of last week. Several young ladies and gentlemen passed the greater part of the evening in singing and pleasant conversation. The people of this section as perhaps through out the entire country, are very much excited over the present capital and labor muddle and fear a general strike. But inasmuch as Jay Gould, the railroad king, has accepted the proposition of Mr. Powderly, president of the Knights of Labor, to submit their differences to arbitration, thero need be no fear of a general strike. In all probability o-Hltrotinn will take ho t.laca of cirikea in the future, and all differences between capital anq labor will be amicably settled without destructioi of life or property, as was the ease a year or two ago. But if the working classes fail to have their comparative rights and privileges amicably ad justed by arbitration, let them leave the old po litical parties, form a party of their own, and put in office such men as will make poor men’s laws, and not all rich men’s and corporation’s laws. The great wonder is that they have not done this long ago instead of fooling with strikes every year. T. Gunpowder, 11th District.—The cold, gray, dripping sky and piercing northeast and west winds of the past four or five days—not unusual for our climate in so-oalled early spring—has put a stop to farming and gardening, which bore were in active progress, and given us all “the blues.” It could not have been in Maryland in Match the poet sang “The melancholy days are o'er, The saddest of the year, Of wailing winds and naked woods, And meadows brown and soar.” In our latitude March is a winter month in all the essential elements that go to make up that seasoD of the year, for in it we have more frost, keen winds, snow and ice than in November. Philo sophically, such weather cannot last long, and had we not computed it, the returning birds, burst ing catkins and greening grass would tell us the glad springtime is near. In looking back upon the past winter one finds “upon the whole” a reasonably moderate one. Crops and stock have come tairly through it. Wheat, rye and grass are looking well, better than at this date last year, and with fair prices farmers may have a remu nerative season. Does less hours of occupation and more pay for the “Kn’ghts” and “Princes” of Labor mean or will it effect paying prices for food or any amelioration for the plebeian toilers in the fields—the farmers? President Cleveland’s recent visit to San Domin go Point was doubtless prompted in the main by the warning Secretary Manning’s illness gave, but whatever the cause he showed his good taste in selecting for purposes of relaxation the shores of the Gunpowder, so celebrated in sporting and gastronomic circles for its feeding grounds for the strong flying and toothsome canvas-back. Tho President had good sport and enjoyed himself, if he was in a local optii n county, and his cotn placenoy in the distribution of autographs has so enlivened and exhilerated the people of the little railway station near by that they intend to give up voting for Jackson and go for “Grover” from this time forth and forever more. The slopes of the deep cut on the B. A 0., op posite Wm. Crossmore’s, which has caused so much trouble and expense to the company and contractors in the past, still continues to slip and slide, compelling the daily use of a train of cars, engine and largo force of workmen to keep the tracks clear. The cut runs through a strata of peculiar clay, variously colored whi-e, black, red, blue and yellow and tinted. Exposure to mois ture causes it to swell like litne and where given iowest level and spreads. "As a last resort retain ing walls of extra heavy masonry have been de cided upon for the entire cut and it is trusted they may prove effectual, if only to relieve Mr. Cross more’s lively fears of waking some morning to find his farm moved on to tho railroad’s right of way. * * * A “Serious” Accident—But Nobody Hurt.—The Maryland Central is one of the most fortunate railroads in the country, and this fac was again established on Thursday by indisputa ble evidence. The patrons of the road well know the difficulties encountered in ascending the long stairway at Boundary avenue station, and few thero are who have not one time or another said Borne “tough” things about it. Last Thursday afternoon, while there were very few people about the station, the portion of this stairway nearest the bridge took a notion to take a tumble, and down it went. The heavy stone wall which sup ported the stairway at the corner of the livery stable of Messrs. Denny A Mitchell, has never been regarded as being too safe, and wooden sup ports had been employed to sustain it. The late heavy rains had so softened the earth at the foot of this wall that it was no longer able to support itself, and at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon it gave way, carrying with it half the stairway. About ten minutes before the wail fell the men about the station noticed that it was weakening and they at once set to work to remove the passenger coaches which were “made up” for the 4 o’clock train.— The cars were quickly uncoupled and those nearest the station had scarcely moved when the crash came. The heavy stones and timbers caught the rear end of the last car, mashing in the roof and cutting off the platform—and this was all the damage that was done, except, of course, the wrecked stairway and the damage to the tiack, which was covered by the debris to the depth of ten feet. John Lokor, one of the employees atthe station, through whoso bravery the cars were saved, made a very narrow escape. Hundreds of people passed up and down this stairway daily, and it seems like a miracle that no one was on it when the crash came. Had it fallen when crow’d ed with passengers going from or to a train, the result must necessarily have been of such anatuie as to make one shudder at tho more contempla tion of it. Grand Army Hall Dedicated.—Tbo new hall ot Gosneil Post, G. A. R , situated Glyndon, \Y. M. R. R., was dedicated on Saturday night last, in the presence of an immense audience, in cluding visiting Posts from Baltimore and Wood berry, besides many who are not members of the order. A special train from the city took up the visitors, who arrived at Glyndon at about 7.30, accompanied by a band and two drum corps. The visitors were met by the officers of Gosneil Post, and escorted to the new hall, wbich is situated tu the east of the station, and which was brilliantly lighted and decorated. The hall was filled, des pite the rain, which prevented many from attend ing the dedication, both from Baltimore and frott the surrounding country. The exercises wero be gun by Commander Dr. Robert J. Henry, of Gos noil Post, who, in a neat address, extended a hearty welcome to the visiting officers anil Posts, together with those present. Rev. B F Clarkson followed with prayer. During the evening ad dresses were delivered by Department Comman der Vernon and others. There was a musical and literary programme,consisting of readings and vocal solos by C. A. Newcomer, Misses Nellie Williams and Mundreth. Gosneil Post was instituted about six months ago with a membership of thirteen. At present it has seventy-five members. Tho now structure is of frame, two stories high and cost SI,OOO. The building proper is sixty-four feet long, thirty-two feet wide, and has a seating capacity of five hun dred. The ball of the Post is on the second floor, and is finished entirely in hard wood. Tho lower floor is utilized for Btores. Fork, 11th District.—The death of Mr. Robt. Boarman, mentioned in last week's issue of Tiie Union, was very sudden and unexpected. lie bad walked that evening to the postoffice, three fourths of a mile from his home, and returned. While eating his supper his bead fell forward, but recover ing be was about being removed to a sofa, whon he expired. Mr. Edward Robinson, contractor, is recovering from bis recent sickness and will be out in a few davs. An emigrant of two weeks ago, from here to Florida, who made a wager with his father of a box of cigars that he would like and remain in the land of flowers, oranges and balmy winds, writes baek: “Florida be dashed. Haven’t seen any thing but sand, fleas, alligators, water and saw grass. Old man, you’ve won the cigars; I’m coming back as soon as I can raise the funds.” All our people aro laughing over the recent magistrate appointments, the more that there was no occasion or any demand for an additional number, whatever might be tho necessity for an increase in quality. Tho facilities for neighbor hood litigation were already sufficient. Vide. A Fine Lot of Beef Cattle.—Col. Walter S. Franklin, ono of Baltimore county’s model farm ers, weighed on the scales in loweontown, on Fri day morning, 21 head of as fine cattle as we have seen for some time. Mr. Samuel Collings bought the entire lot. Property Transfers In Balto.

Buriedln Baltimore County Soil.—Wong Gee, the Chinaman who died in Baltimore last week, was the first of his kind to be buried in Baltimore county soil, and we hope he may be the last. His funeral took place at Baltimore Cemetery, on the Belair road, last Sunday after noon, and was a typical Chinese burial, with all the tomfoolery usually indulged in on such occa sions in his native country. Hundreds of people, attracted through curiosity, witnessed the cere monies and enjoyed them as thoy would a circus or something of that sort. On Tuesday reports were circulated in Baltimore that Wong Gee's ( body had been stolen. This reached the ears of h : s friends and threo Chinamen went to the under taker who served the funeral and demanded a hack to go out and investigate. The carriage was. furnished and they started, carrying with them a roasted chicken, a china bowl and about a half peck of apples to complete a portion of the ceremony customary in the burial of a Chinaman. Arriving at the cemetery, and after finding that the body still remained as interred on Sunday, they proceeded with a very peculiar ceremony. One of them took the chicken in his bands, and after muttering some rather mysterious expres sions, cut off the head, legs and the part that usu ally goes over the fence last and placed the re mainder in the bowl which hnd previously been placed on the grave, and half filled with whiskev. On this was placed tho apples. The trio then left the grave and walked to another portion of the cemetery. Returning in about twenty minutes, they removed the chicken, bowl and contents, but let the apples remain. After some more raaooeu vering they left. According to the custom of the Chinese there are three stages of mourning, with a different dress for each. In the first instance a dark red dish garment of coarse hempen cloth is worn, with a cap of the same material, and a cord about the waist. In the seoond instance, a3 was observed in this case, the mourners put on a cap and shoes of white, in the third, which takes place in about two weeks, the dress may be of silk, the shoes white or bloe. Children or relatives during the period go often to. the grave and weep. The } ear. The Avenue as a Driving: Road.—The “horse editor - ’ of the Sunday American says: “There is a large increase in the public interest in driving matters as shown by the large crowds of spectators who occupy both sides of Charles street avenue, on the stretch north of the toll gate, to witness the contests which tako place between local trotters on a Sunday afternoon. Outside of the shell roads for good footing Charles street avenue is decidedly the best road out of the city, but its condition could be materially improved iu some places. The charter calls for a sixty-foot road, but the road-bed does not cover much more than half this number of feet, and a thoroughfare which is patronized as this one, should be put in the proper condition to justify owners of speedy horses to drive upon it. The crowded condition of this avenue a few Sundays ago caused a jam at the toll gate which came very near resulting in an accident. The post in the center of the road at this point, in conjunction with the fence built out to within fifteen feet of tho toll gate door, makes the road very dangerous to the trotter’s speeding, especially if there are three or four even abreast at this particular point. Some years ago there was a severe accident at this point, caused by tbo post in the center of the road, and a request was made by several residents and road drivers to remove it, and clear all obstructions at this point, but no attention was paid to it by tbe owners. The condition of the road bed does not justify owners of trotting horses to speed upon it on account of its bard condition, which will in time make any horse sore that travels it. If tbe condition of the road’s charter was carried out there should be a summer road on both sides of what is now the macadamized road bed. The Amoss Farm.—The last meeting of tho Failston Farmers’ Club was held at tbe residence of Mr. Garrett Amoss, near Failston, Md. C. R. R. This farm forms part of a large tract that was set tled by the Amoss family four or five generations ago. James Amoss settled his sons, Wm. L. and Oliver 11. Amoss, upon this traot, and in turn Gar rett Amoss succeeded to his father’s honors. An old burying ground marks the graves of several of the Amoss family, and of one Wm. Amoss, who was the founder of the Friends’ Meeting at Falls ton. The present Mr. Amoss’ father, being a be liever in the use of lime, applied it freely, and the good results were very marked, contrasting strongly with the system of farming pursued around him. He erected the 6tone barn in 1813, which was at that early day the largest in the country around, and was thought by bis neigh bors to be foolishly large, as he could not fill it. Now, from the same acreage, tbe barn will not hold one-fourth tho amount grown. The Club made a visit to the various points of interest upon the farm, and were much pleased with the ample feeding arrangements for his milk cows, of which he has thirty-six, in fine order. Mr. Amoss cuts bis feed for bis stock, and is gratified by the ex perioient in tho increase in yield of milk since.he adopted the system, beside making so much better rotted material in tho barnyard, from which he has covered a field of twenty acres, and with prob ably enough to cover almost as much more. Baltimore County Members.—Tbe Sun day American gives brief sketches of all the mem bers of tbo Legislature and has tbe following to say of those from this county : “Baltimore coun ty has a live delegation. John Ilubnor, tbe mem ber from Catonsville, is an outspoken representa tive. lie says wbat he thinks, never mincing bis words. Indeed, sometimes he is very plaiD. He generally hits from tho shoulder, especially when he-thinks he has discovered a snake. James J. Lindsay is the only one of tbe last delegation re turned this time. He is one of the youngest and also one of the brightest members. ’Squire Pole is one of the most highly respected members in the House. Ho is a genial, honest old gentleman, who does what ho thiuks right. Dr. Baldwin is a very clever gentleman and an attentive member. Illness has prevented bis attendance during tbe Intterpart of the session. Mr. O’Hara differs from his colleagues in that he looks rnoro to the safe side of legislation. He will take no chances. Sometimes he votes with the “coterie.” Walter Townsend is the animating spirit of the delega tion. He is nlways in good spirits, and is very much liked.” Trustees’ Sale of a Farm. —John V. Slade, auctioneer, sold on tho premises, on Saturday last, for Messrs. R. R. Boarman and M. W. Offutt, trustees in the equity proceedings of George E. Holloway and others against William T. Holloway and others, tne farm of ttye late Wm. W. Hollo way, situated in the 7th district, about three miles east of New Market, containing 126 acres, im proved by a dwelling house, barn, Ac.; purchased by James Trout for $2,605. Land Sales.—The Belair digit of last week gays : “On Monday Mr. A. H. Strasbaugh, exeo utor of the late Wm. F. Pannell, offered at publio sale, ar tbe Court House door, Bush Mills, but withdrew it at a bid of $2,500. A tract of 76 acres and one of 50 acres in Baltimore county, were also withdrawn at a bid of $2,000 and $1,500 respectively. A tract of 70 acres also in Balti more county, was sold to Albert Hoffman, of that county, for $2,150." Lost their Places.—On the Ist instant the following gentlemen, employed at tbe Boundary avenue station of tbe Maryland Central road, were notißed that their services were no longer required, the Receivers intend ng, so it is said, to cut down tbe force: Charles A. Roe, cashier and , paymaster; A. Salmon, clerk to Receivers, and J. ( McD. Stafford, ticket agent and clerk to auditor. Mr. Roe has been connected with this road almost ( since its inauguration, filling satisfactorily a num , ber of responsible positions. Messrs. Salmon and Stafford are also e j oient men and there is no , complaint against any of them. i An Extensive Improvement—Messrs. \ Joshua llegesters’ Sons have purchased 17 acres j of land at the junction of the Ba timore and Chie ( Philadelphia Branch and the Union Railroad ( from Mr. Samuel W. Smith, where they have . commenced the erection of a foundry 300 feet by j 100 feet, which will be equippod with machinery of tbe most improved style. They expect to have tbe building up in sixty days, and to be in lull running order within ninety days. It is contem plated to melt at least a carload of pig iron daily, whioh will give employment to quite a number of mechanics and laborers. An Attempt to Break Jail.—A few nights ago two of Sheriff Miller’s boarders att mpted to cut out of tboir cell, hu‘ were discovered before they had accomplished the job. They were work ing on a partition wall separating the jail from the Sheriff’s dwelling. They were at once placed in irons to prevent their escape in future. CIRCUIT COURT FOR BALTIMORE CO.
