Last Sunday was a grand day at
the First Baptist Church. In the
morning the Sunday-school convened
as usual at 9 o'clock and also at 2
o'clock. In the morning Rev. W.
Bowser was to preach, but he had to
artend the funeral of Mr. Hines,
who died suddenly on Thursday last.
Prof. Green, of Louisiana, filled his
place, and preached an excellent and
instructive sermon. IHis text was
Psalms 19th, Ist verse. Prof. Green
is an able man and preacher. We
hope that the day will soon come
when bossism will be done away with
and money questions in the church,
then we can hear good preaching like
we had on last Sunday all day. In
the afternoon Rev. James Dansbury
preached aund also addressed the Sun
day-school; he gave able instraction
to the little ones. At night Rev. W.
T. Harris preached, and his choir
sang under the leadership of Prof J.
Mitchell, who rendered some of their
choice music.
The Urion Concert on Monday was
a grand saccess. A.J. Reid, of Union
Sunday- school, and J. IL. Reid, of the
First Baptist School. conducted the
concert. All who attended were well
pleased. At 8 o'clock the people
began to come in and in a few min
utes the aisles were filled. The au
dience was called to order by Rev. J.
C. Allen, of the First Charch, and
prayer was offered by a brother of
the Union Church, after which Rev.
Di. Dixson made the opening ad
dress. He made a grand speech. Tie
next was Miss Florence Hargrave, of
the Kirst School, who sang a solo.
She is only 14 years of age. When
she was introduced to the audience
she came forward like the Prince of
Denmark. Prof. William Hopkins
played the accompaniment on the
piano. We must say that if Miss
Florence continues she will be second
to none in the country. Miss Carrie
Barnes read an essay, which was very
nice.
John Anthony, a member of the
Baltimore City Guards, has returned
heme {rom Cape May. e is looking
very well.
At the regular church meeting of
the First Baptist Church, on last
"Thursday night, they adopted a reso
lation to discontinue a long gession in
the afternoon of the Sunday-school,
and have three services in the church.
The vote was 10 to 10, and the pastor
being the chairman, he had to decide
it by his vote, and he voted to discon
tinue the long session in the school.
When we see such actions as this we
may know that we are going back
into ignorance.

hanna Lodge,which has recently been
organized in this city. It being the

known it did not arrive in time, but

TALKING TO FARMERS,
MR. BLAINE ATTENDS A FAIR IN
NEW HAMPSHIRE,
His Word Picture of Qur Agriculture—The
asis of All Wealth—Tne Republican
Candidate Enthusiastically Received
by Toilers of the Soii—Tendered
a Reception in the Evening.
MANCHESTER, N.- H., Sept. 4.—The
fourth day of the New England Fair
opened with fine weather. Shortly after
12 o’clock a barouche containing I{on.
James G. Blaine, ex-Governor Smythe,
Hon. George B. Loring and Mayor Port
man was driven upon the grounds, and
was followed by other invited guests in
carriages. The arrival was grected with
cheers. When the party were seated,
the president of the New England Agri
cultural Society, Hon. George B. Loring,
;ntroduccd Mr. Blaine, who spoke as fol-
OWS:
Mr. Blaine’s Address.
Ladies and Gentlemen: It is pleasant
to find ourselves in an assembiage where
we all bear a name of higher honor than
any partisan designation, an assemblage
in which we meet on the broad plane of
American citizenship and rejoice in the
title as in itself constituting a civic dis
tinction of priceless value. The agricul
tural fair is the farmers parliament. On
this day and on this occasion the most
independent class of citizens speak to the
world by word and deed for that great
fundamental interest on which the Re
public rests for itssecurity and prosperity.
1t has become a trite saying that agri
culture is the basis of all wealth, but the
full measure of the statement may be
comprehended when we remember that
in this year of grace, 1884, the total value
of the product trom the farm and flock in
the United States will exceed §3,000,-
500,000, an amount brought forth in
a single year, vastly in excess of the na
tional debt at its highest point. We are
not in the habit of considering New Eng
land as specially distinguished for agri
culture, and yet the annual product from
her soil is greater in value than all the
gold taken from the mines of California
and Australia in the richest year of their
fabulous yisld.
The farmer is the true and always suc
cessful miner in the extraction of money
from the carth—a fact most strikingly
shown in the history of California, whose
splendid march to wealth and power only
fairly began when the energies of her
people were turned to tlie production of
bread for the world instead of gold. The
prodigious consumbption of 56,000,000
people is brought strikingly before us
when we realize how vast a proportion of
our aggregate product is used at home
and how small a share is sent abroad.
The hundred and odd millions of New
England farm products do not support
her own people, and they are compelled
to exchange the fruits of their mechanical
industry to an enormousamountannually
for the means of subsistence so lavishly
ourpoured from the granaries of the West;
and this fact is but one of many which
show the independence of our people and
the vast extent of our internal exchanges.
The scene of to-day has an enhanced
interest when we reflect that throughout
the gorgeous autumn upon which we have
just entered it will be reproduced in count
less communities througnout our land.
From ocean to ocean, from northern lake
to Southern gull, the richness of the har
vest, the contentment and happiness of
the people will be shown on fields as fair
by displays as brilliant as those which now
delight our eyes and gladden our hearts.
Nor will the autumn exhaust the inspir
ing scenes. When the chill ot winter on
the northern border of the Union shall
make the southern sun seem genial and
welconm.e our brethern of the cotton region
will continue the wondrous story,
They invite us to witness in the com
mercial emporium of the South the great
triumph of Southern agriculture in the
production of that single plant which has
revolutionized the manufactures. They
have the finance of the world, which has
enriched the United States beyond the
reach of imagination, and has added in
calculably to the comfort, the health and
the luxury ofthe human race. Standing,
as I do, in a fair of the New KEngland
States, it is an agreeable duty to extend
congratulations to New England farmers
on the good results of this year’s labors
and on the general and more important
fact that at no period in the history of
New England husbandry has intelligent
labor been Dblessed with more profitable
results than during the present generation.
If there he any one that doubts this I wish
he was here to-day and couid hear what I
have heard and sece what I have secen.
(Applause.)
I heartily congratulate the New Eng
land society on the brilliant success of
this exhibition, and I beg to rcturn my
sincere thanks to all for the personal
kindness and cordiality with which I have
been honored.
At the conclusion of Mr. Dlaine’s re
marks he was tendered three cheers by
the crowd, to which he bowed his ac
knowledgments.
After the conclusion of his address
Mr. Blaine was escorted to his carriage,
and driven quickly to the residence of
ex-Governor Smythe, wherc he was ten
dered a reception this evening.
“LOTS OF FUN.”
The Perilous Ballooun Ride of Carlotta and
Two Boys.
SArATOGA, Sept. s.—Carlotta’s’balloon
ascension from Congress Spring Park was
accompanied with considerable peril. A
lively breeze.carried the air-ship in the
direction of the Greenfield Mountains,
whichare heavily timbered, consequently
afford no desirable landing places. Un
loading ballast, Carlotta passed to an
upper current, which carried her in the
direction of Gansevoort, fourteen miles
distant. Selecting a favorable spot, she
allowed a portion of the gas to escape,the
balloon descending rapidly. Noticing
three boys, she called to them toseize and
hold the balloon the moment it touched
the ground. Two of thelads obeyed her
request, when a sudden squall drove the
balloon bounding over the ground and
fences for almost a mile. In its flight the
talloon described circles fully 50 feet in
height. The lads retained their grasp of
the basket and were carried along with a
speed and at a height that fairly blanched
their countenances. Nescing a heavy
piece of timber, and fearing a serious acei
dent, Carlotta watched her opportunity,
as the balloon again touched the ground,
and ripped the ‘Zephyr,” the name of
the air-ship, open from top to bottom,
completely wrecking it. The sudden ar
restand flattening out of the balloon in
sured a permanent landing, and, aside
from a slight jar, Carlotta and the bound
ing boys escaped injury. After the color
had returned to the boys’ cheeks, they
remarked that it was ‘‘lots of fun.”
POISONED BY EATING SARDINES,
Barntivore, Sept. s.—The entire
family of Samuel Stroebel, residing at
No. 63 North Castle streét, consisting of
his wile and three children, aged five
years, two and a half years and sixteen
months respectively, were poisoned yes
terday and now lie in a critical condition.
All the family partook of sardines, and
immediately thereafter were attacked
with cramps, and in an hour all were un
conscious. Late lastevening all regained
consciousness, except Agnes, whose
death is expected momentarily. The
physician says that none of the parties
are out of danger, and attribute the trou
ble to the poisonous condition of the sar
dine case,
BEN BUTLER IN RAGE,
s Bouneces a Millionaire Who Slappad
Him on the Back,
Cricaco, Sept. b.—General Butler ar
rived at the Palmer House at about 11
o’clock. As soon as he entered the par
lor, B. P. Hutchinson, of this city, some
times called “Old Hutch,” -the broker,
approached him. Being several years
ago an intimate friend of Butler’s, he
walked up behind and struck him on the
shoulder.
‘“¥ou do that again, sir,”” exclaimed
General Butler, angrily, “and I will
strike you across the head with this
cane!”
The act was repeated.
“I tell you I mean just what I say,”
said Butler.
Mr. Hutchinson looked astonished.
Not desiring to be put ofl, he tollowed
Butler into his room.
“I don’t think you have approached
me in the proper way,”’ said the General,
in a surly manner, as he poiited to the
door.
Mr. IHutchinson walked away, feeling
as only a millionaire can feel who has
been squelched so summorily.
GONE WlTt'l 820,000,
Loxc Braxch, Sept. s.—Frank Pat
terson, owner of the opera house here, is
missing, and detectives with warrants for
his arrest are searching for him. He is
charged with having forged the endorse
ments of a number of well known resi
dents of Monmouth county on notes ag
gregating over $20,000. Wm. W. Cono
ver and Judge Samuel T. Hendrickson,
both of Red Bank, who were his indors
ers to a considerable amount, have at
tached all his property and taken posses
sion of the opera house, which is one of
the finest in the State. Uriah White, a
wealthy husiness man of Asbury Park,
stated this evening that Patterson had
forged his indorsement on notes to the
amount of $2,700.
A GIRL’S SUDDEN INSANITY,
ATneNs, Ga., Sept. s.—Wednesday
night Miss M’Lean, a young milliner of
this place, was sittihg in the parlor in
company with some friends, when she
suddenly became insane. Without warn
ing of any kind, reason left"its throne,
and the combined efforts of those present
were necessary to control her. Her
shrieks and wild singing were heartrend
ing, and for several hours it was impossi
ble to quiet her. The cause of this is
gaid to be news received several days ago
that a cousin to whom she was devotedly
attached was brutally;shot downin Texas.
He was to have visited Athens shortly.
Her mind has constantly preyed upon
this and she has been unable to forget it
even in sleep.
A SEQUEL OF TEE NUTT TRAGEDY.
UxitonTowy, Sept. s.—The case of
Lawrence Knotts, one of Dukes jurors
against one of the editors of the Republi
can Standard for criminal libel, came up
before the gtand jury of Fayette county
yesterday. The same person brought
an action against the paper last spring,
but the June grand jury iguored the bill
and placed the costs on the prosecutor.
Not satisfied he renewed the proceedings
and last evening the grand jury returned
the same finding ana placed the cost on
the prosecutor. .
