We •may appreciate it more than any one else as we were often his companion in his Botanical rambles . Johunan presents us with his excellent No, g, on " Bible Temscrance." Jeans, Didymus, ami Justicia, will appear next week. Valedictory. It is .customary with editors, when they with draw troip thejg onerous positions, to make tlj,eir ( .get,(ring hows. As the umtersigfied ic about to ' ,»a«ate. the nich# in the chair editorial which he hay oeccupied for a brief time past, he will en deavor to make as graceful an exit ns possible. jDuring his connection with the Herald he has ainxed to ." act well his part " in conducting the paper with an "eye-single" to furthering the interests of the great moral reform in which it professes Jo be engaged. How well that duty (t has been perfumed it remains with -the,readers of the tferaid to determine. He now takes his leave, hoping that the paper may reach that heighth of profit to its editpr, and usefulness to its readers, as wiil render its existence a matter of unquestioned necessity. THOMAS I„ POULSON. Quj Readers will observe by this issue of çur paper, at a single glance, the change AU*de in its title—an arrangement entered into ( jl'.ot without due reflection and consultation .With f*e supporters of the enterprise. The reasons for .course,of procedure are seyeral —the most importa ut pf which w ill be briefly set foith. It will also be observed, rtwt our associate, Mr. T. L. PouLaox, has dissolved his connection with the paper, being about to re move from our midst. In whatever place or ppsijtioii his lot may be cast, he has our best wishes for his happiness and prosperity. The entire control, therefore, of the concern, will, for the future, deyplve upon tlie subscriber, who is alone responsible for all debts contracted, and jyiü yeceiyc all monies due the late firm. The old manic—" Delaware Herald ,"—has been dropped, among others, for the reason that , Prestige of the name hangs upon it like an incubuu, paralyzing all its energies and com pletely damning up its coime, which hampers it»,conductor to speh an extent, that he cannot pursue the ç purge he fishes with freedom. In saying this, we mean to cast ao-reflcction upon the foinier editor of the paper, but only say what is apparent and well kpown to all who hare been placed in a situation to kqow any thing about the matter. VVe have adopted the title of " Smyrna Times not for tlie purpose of confining its circulation to any one locality, but because we could find none that better suit ed our fancy. VVe intend to make ours a Penin sular piper—keeping our readers, so far as we are able, well posted up in all that pertains to the interest of its inhabitants. We tdiall still keep the same flag floating in the breeze—the flag of " Total Prohibition,"— vhick it uai|ed to tk<* mast sever to be struck çntij the battle is won, and victory perches upon <Kir banner. We are aware that this course will, by some, be thought prejudicial to our in terest, and calculated to lessen the circulation ff the pxper, in its local field ; this may be so, but a firm conviction that the caute we advocate is «f paj-aiijOjunt importance to all others—except the Gospel—ever brought beJfre the world for • its consideration, we arc eongtrafyed to enter into the struggle determined to fight for the ac complishment of our .purpose, or fall, if we must. With our front to the enemy. Private interest must and ought to be made subservient Jo publie good, and we are willing to bear our portion of t^e Widen. VVe, therefore, in the furtherance of our enterprise, as the paper was started and has heretofore beep the only tem perance paper on the Peninsula, ask the no operation of the friends of the cause through • mt the State of Delaware, and the Eastern -flores of Maryland and Virginia. Id addition to an extensive correspondence gjjich we now have, we shall endeavor to keep <>ur readers informed upon ell matters of inter •sst that transpires at home, with a summary of tfte domestic aqd forCign news.

The Celebrate» in Smyrna. The celebration,of the .Fourth,of July, was ushered in by loud peals of the bell from the P. E. church, at sunrise. The stores and workshops wqre all closed, and things bore the appearance of a long expected hölyday. — Next were seen the youth and the aged riding to and fro through the town. The.c.ompiittee of arrangenieiifr » ify their appropriate badges, the chief marshal and his subordinates, with sash and staff', stars and stripes floating to the breeze, retired to the east of the town, and, with a large number of citizens on horseback, formed in procession, accompanied by a baud of music from Philadelphia, which was drawn by four horses. After parading through the prin cipal streets, they proceeded to the school house yard, District No. 3, which was very admirably .fitted up for the occasion, with seats under the shade trees, and when the procession had ar rived, the orators,of the day, proceeded by the committee of arrangements, followed by the band, took their place on the stand. Dr, Wm. CrMil iks, chairman of the committee, came forward and, after some eloquent and patriotic remarks congratulating the assembled multitude upon the returning anniversary of ouy national independence, moved that the meeting be ganized by the appointment .of Hon. Isaac Davis, President; which was agreed to. G. W. Cummins, Esq., and Col. Samuel Catts, were then appointed Vice-Presidents, and J. Eaton, Secretary; when the exercises .of the meeting was opened with a beautify) and ap propriate prayer by the Rev. T. C. Mpnp#y, of the M. p. Church. After music by the Band, the Declaration of Independence was read in a very clear aufl dis tinct manner by Mr. Thos. 1,. Poulson. Music was again discoursed, After which, James Booth, Esq., a young lawyer from town of New Castle, was pre sented to the assemblage, and in a very able and elegan* manner enterfyiped the audience an hour with anelaborate and interesting history of our national independence. He manifested a degree of research and aptitude of illustration seldom to be foftnd in a mind so young. At the hour of 12, the meeting adjourned, to meet again at 2 o'clock, P, M, or over 2 o'clock, P. M. — By this time, hundreds cf the industrious yeomen of the country had scmbled on the occasion. The thrilling music, the stars and stripes—the pride of the patriot— all conspired to make the day joyous and orable. Mr. Thos. M. Martin, of Newark, Del., was in troduced to the audience. This young gentle man and orator left an impression upon the minds of pur citizens that will not soon be for gotten. For beauty of composition, and grace and pathos pf delivery, lie iç spoken of by all as meriting a high degree of cojnnpcndaition.— The oration was certainly a gem. Though not yet twenty-one years of age, fee exhibits doubted signs of future usefulness. Mr. Beni. T. Biugs was next introduced to the audience. VVe can say for this gentleman that he is a master-workman upon such sions, he possesses unquestionable talent, com bined with profound liter» taïè, iiurnor aad wit. Alter divesting his subject of its beautiful, varie gated hues and tints that floated upon its sur face, he took possession of the eyes, the ears, and hearts of the whole assembled mass. In alluding to our dearly-bought liberties, and in as mem un oeca deprecating tlie threatened evils to our public institutions, he most happily spoke of the feats and sufferings, and patriotism evinced by the Delaware soldiery, in the Revolution, that pur chased our independence, and especially the sires of those whom he then addressed—that it was no wonder that the day was celebrated With so much enthusiasm, when Smyrna had produced some of the heaviest men that partici pated ill the Revolution, as well as the late war. It may not be out of place to say that cadi of the speakers were presented with beautiful boquets by the ladies, when they had concluded, Mr. Biggs having taken his seat, the Band played several of their choice pieces. The exercises of the day was concluded with Benediction by the Rev. S. T. Caiife:;teh, of the P. E. Church. The day past off with much eclat and joy, made more so by the countenance of hundreds ot the fair sex—mothers, wives, daughters and children, neat and tasteful, all combined, and assisted making« jubilee indeed. Great praise is due to th*' committee of ar rangements for their untiring effort* put forth on this occasion. They have the universal thanks of a gratified community. We cannot close without speaking in terms of high commendation of the Band of Music, which « played their part well," much to the edification and enjoyment of our citizens. JOHN EATON, Sec'y. The Peninsula State.— Tlie forming of » State by uniting Delaware and tfte Eastern Shore* of Maryland and Virginia, lias been discussed for a number of years. Its location ; x certainly favorable—the Eastern Shores of Maryland and Virginia, being cut off, as they are, by a large Bay from the rest of the five States, on the Western Shore, tor of the Dover Reporter, in Saturday's paper, after speaking of the interests of the South in the consolidation, says : » " Freetioilism and Abolitionism are fast en croaching upon m,, and, nourished by one ofthe Whig papers in Wilmington, advocated by the same city, fostered: and preach^ by^trUfo re igmus societies, ti;e tear m that, unless some counter action be interposed, Delaware will, m a few years, no longer boclasbed as a south ern State, but .hoir whole institutions will ho corrupted ny the demoralizing influence of free niggerwD». respec The Edi Fatal Accidekt, On Wednesday afternoon last, a carpenter, named Harman, in attempting to leave the roof of » house at -. was at work, minit's ■C Bridge, upon footing Aid foil te the ground lulling iramedintely. * * his Almost £ f. *♦ Deaths from Ueat. —Monday, Tuesday,, and Wednesday; were the hottest'days of the season.

Wtnmust add that in all these instances, the usual liquqralhwatiice was not granted thehar .veit hands. ex The above is taken from the Dover Reporter. As a simple announcement of a fast we have no objection to it, but : the last sentence seems to convey the idea, that t|ie deaths mentioned were caused not byheat or over-exertion, but by the absence of Rum, which we kivpw, in one instance at least, was not the .case j fog, Mr. bullivan, one of the victims, drank no liquor at any tiine»-r-llierefore,xould not feel the need -of an habitual stimulus. Everybody, with any pretention to the ordinary quantum of brain— except the editor of the Reporter —well knows that what is popularly called " Sun-Stroke," is a congestion pf the brain, caused by the action ot rays of fye sun upon the head, thereby pro ducing a kind of apoplexy.

When this paper jiassod jnfri tlie hands of the present pro prietor there was a certain class of advertise ments contained therein of doubtful propriety, and which, had we been the conductor of the paper at the time, would never have appeared therein ; but q»i a contract had been entered into between the^ former proprietor and the adver tisers, we did not deem it right, at the time, to leave them out, but, upon mature consideration, we have come to the conclusion, after the pre sent week, to publish them no more, as we are determined that nothing of an immoral or su perstitious tendency shall, for the fyture, dis grace our columns.

Daleville, Del. June 22,1854. Mr. Euitok ;—In my last I gave your read ers a rough calculation of the expenses arising from the legalization of the traffic in intoxica ting drinks. I hope the estimate was sufficient to satisfy every honest and unprejudiced mind that the license system is expensive and inex pedient, that it is injurious to the welfare and good order of society. But it has often been said—and very truly, too—that none are so bimd us those who will not see. When men are Winded by the prospect of gain they refuse to open their eyes that they may see properly. Every measure of reform that has advocated the good of many, to the injury of a few, interested ui continuing the old state of things fbr their especial advantage, has had its opponents.— Every step taken towards the amelioration of the masses has been denounced by knaves and demagogues, as uncalled for. And the tem perance reform has not escaped—dram-sellers, grog-drinkers, and pot-house politicians have been harping about taking the liberties of the people away from the«i.

Vours, Ned. 03" The proffering ofthe wine cup in fash ionable homes, convoke those hoin 3 s into stionngholds of the liquor traffic, and makes them fountain heads of drunkenness doubt many of the ladies of this city would shrink at being placed in the same scale with the Irish women, who sells whiskey not a dozen doors from our office, But so tar as aiding and sustaining the rmq traffic is con cerned, they do fir more towards it than it is possible for bar to do. With a full knowledge of all (ho evils whichrcsult from drinking, they add the first fire to smouldering appetites, which in the end, will draw their possessors down to the lowest depths of degi »dation. Men do not commence drinking allow groe genes. They start in the higher shop«; and many times at the hearth-side. And upon the wives, mothers and sisters, who do not frown upon drinking in the home and speial circle rests a fearful responsibility. For the wealth of worlds, we would not incur it. Fashionable drinking is entrenched in homes in Auburn. No many . s »de by side with the keep ers of the low rum holes and the so-called spec table groggeries our women labor to unwary victims, and fasten upon them the re» ena re strong bands of the destroyer. The safeguard ot woman's happiness rests i the sancity of home. 1 HI If her influence there is not thrown in the scale ot right and humanity —if she giyes jt to a great, moral wrong which has crushed thousands of her s«rx--il,on is that home and community doublyfoursod.— Cayuga r .

Persia, as in the Hungarian campaign, and the two Polish cam paigns of 1831-32, there are not sufficient data U> enable us to form a correct estimate of the Russian loss; which was however, in the Persian and Polish wars, enormous.

The joss of the Russian forces, in various ways,since tjie entrance ofthe Danubian 1 rin«, fifties, is utidesstood at 30,606. In these calculations, it should be borne in nfyid that no estimate is attempted to be made of tlie sacrifice of human life on the'side of those who fought for their Liberties against the aggresaionsof Rus sia.
