A Question for Farmers .—If the farm ers in the vicinity of Middletown, who have expended twenty-five or thirty thou sand dollars, this winter, for mules and horses, were to breed their own stoch, would they not save money thereby? Just think of it! thirty thousand dollars drawn from your coffers to enrich the stock-broeders of Kentucky 1 And this drain upon your resources, we suppose, is made annually. Raiso your own mules and horses, and keep this large sum here, where it might be expended for the im provement and benefit of your own neigh borhood and neighbors. . The Delaware and Maryland Fruit Growers' Association, will hold an ad journed meeting at the public house of William T. Chance, in Odessa, on Satur day, the 7th day of March, at I o'clock, P. M. At their last meeting, on the 25th of January, a committee was appointed to solicit fruit growers generally to become members of the Association, and their President, Daniel Corbit, Esq. was au thorized to report to the next meeting by laws for the government of the Associa tion. tST When, in our first issue, we ap prised correspondents that an imperative rule in printing offices required tho names of all who undertook to write for the press, we did not think it would be necessary to refer to the subject again. But it seems that is. Writers of anonymous communica tions are informed that in no ease will they be admitted to our columns, no matter what the subject treated of. P. H. Mitchell, of W ilmington, is put ting up a new frame dwelling house on the ground* of the Rail Rood Company, near the depot. The main building iu to l>e 16 by 28 feet, two utorien ; the back building 14 by 18. It is intended for one of the employee* of the road. Jame* Armstrong, of White Clay Creek Hundred, and Jacob Richardaon, of Wil mington, both announce themselves in this issue of the Transcript, as candidates for the Sheriffalty of New Castle couuty, subject to the nomination of the democratic p» r 'y- _______ The corporation election in this town, will take place on Monday the 2d day of March, for five Commissioners, an Asses sor, a Treasurer, and an Alderman. Tho polls will be opened at 1 o'clock, r. m. at Davis' Hotel. The several warm sunny days we have had this week have rapidly dissolved the snow and the ioo which have so long cov ered the earth. Winter, it would seem, b about to take its departure. The public should bear in mind that the «discount day of the National Bank of Mid dletown, has been changed from Monday to Tuesday. At a donation visit, recently, Rev. G. A. Phoebus, of Odessa, was presented with ■a purse of $200 by his congregation. Delaware Affairs. Terrible Accident .—A terrible accident occurred on Saturday morning last, on the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Rail Road, between this city and Hedge ville, by which an old lady named Margaret McCann, was so badly injured that she died shortly afterwards. Her daughter Mary Sweeney was »Iso badly injured. It ap pears that Mrs. McCann and Mrs. Sweeney resided in that locality and started on Sat urday morning to come into Wilmington to market. While proceeding along the Rail road, the 8 o'clock train from New Castle approached, on a track opposite to that which the women were walking. It is sup posed that MrB. McCanu did not observe the train until it was very near them, when thinking it was coming up the track which they were on, she became terrified, exclaim ing, "Oh what,a that," and ran on to the track In front of the locomotive. Mrs. Sweeney seised hold of her mother and made every effort to extricate her from the perilous position, but without avajl, she so completely oonfsucd by fright that she used superhuman efforts to get on the track before the train. The tender struck Mrs. McCann knoeking her down, breaking her back and leg and otherwise injuring her. Mrs. Sweeney was struck in the side ny the next car and knocked down, and severely though not daogerousty wounded. The in jur«! parties were taken to their respective ' residences. Mrs. M<*3sn n died shortly af ter Matching home. Mr*. Sweeney is bet ter and will recover. Deputy Coroner Cur ry held nn inquest on the body of the de ceased, when the jury rendered a verdict in acordance with the facts stated above. Mrs. McCann was s native of Ireland and on was about 70 years old .—Journal and Statee man. Skip Building in Wilmington .—There are more iron veiiels built in this city, than in all the rest of the United States put together. There is nowhere else in the country, an establishment where there is constantly an iron steamer on the stocks ; here there are on an average three or four building at once, the year round. There are at least twice as many steam vessels, of wood and iron, built in this city every year, as there are in Philadelphia, and throwing out small tug boats, there is no comparison between the two places, in the number of boats built by caoh. These are patent facts to all, at all acquained with the busi ness here, but we doubt if they are known by many of our own citizens — Commer cial. A Big Thing on Ice .—On Thursday af ternoon last, some of the citizens of New castle amused themselves by skating from that town to Delaware City and back. The party consisted of men, boys, young ladies and girls, and the whole distance, there and back, was accomplished in from one and a half to two hours. One of the par ty, a gentleman of superior skating quali ties, made the distance in thirty-four min utes. Another, a boy of only some twelve or thirteen years of age, was forty minutes in coming from Delaware City to New Cas tle. Others were fifty and sixty minuteB in the passage up. Considering the distance some nine miles by water, from New Cas tle to Delaware City, this is about the big gest thing in the skating line, we have heard Of for sometime.— Tuesday's Gazette. Sad Accident at Laurel .—A young man by the name of Wiley, residing at Lau rel, Del. beiug taken with a chill, a week or two since, his sister suggested he should take some spirits, a little bottle of what she supposed to be liquor of Borne kind, she observed in a closot. He took some, re marking it had a queer taste. She then tasted it herself, and inquired of à servant if it was liquor. Upon being told it was some thing to destroy bed-bugs, she imme diately set out after her brother, who had left the house for his home, telling him of her unfortunate mistake. A physician was called in, but the young man, after linger ing a day or two, died. The sister, as may be imagined, is dccp)y distressed. William, son of Andrew Alexander, who resides near the Rising Sun, in Christiana Hundred, committed suicide by accidental ly strangling himself with a strap, on Tues day evening. He was fifteen years old. A new office is established at Mt. Mor iah, Keut county, Del., and Warren J. Reed appointed Post Master, Will ccive regular special supplies from Willow Grove. A Sensation .—Five brides made their debut in one of our churches last Sunday, which was a splendid seusation for the quid nuncs and fashionables .—Smyrna Times. The new See of Wilmington, Del. has been filled by the late Plenary Council of Baltimore, by the appointment of the Right Rev. Thomas A. Bcckor, D. D. of Richmond.

ORIGIN And History of the Books of the Bible, D OTH the Canonical and Apocryphal, showing XA what the Bible is not, what it is, and how to use it. (New Testament.) With Illustrations. By Prof. Calvin E. Stowe, D. D. for more than thirty years Bibical Professor at Andover, Cin cinnati, and other Theological Seminaries, and acknowledged to be one of the best informed Bible students of the age. This work is one of patient research, diligent study, and ripe experience, be ing in fact the life work of the author. It will treat of 1. The common popular objec tions to the Bible at the present day. What the Bible is not, what it is, and how to use it. 2. The evidences upon which we receive the Sacred Books, and description of the Ancient Manuscripts of the New Testament, with foe-simile illustrations. 3. Brief Biographies of 100 Ancient Witnesses to the New Testament, whose testimony is most important, much of it cited in this great work. 4. The testimony for the Historical Books, and a full examination, separately, of the four Gospels. 6. The Apocryphal Gospels, and fragments of Gospels supposed to be lost. 6. Modern substitutes for the Gospel History, with an examination of the works of Strauss, Weisse, Gfroerer, Bruno Bauer, F. C. Bauer, Re nan, and Schenckel, intending to meet the under miniug process with regard to the authority of Scripture, so prevalent at the present day. 7. Acts of the Apostles, the Apocryphal Acts and the fourteen Epistles of Paul* The Catholic and the Apocryphal Epistles. Revelation of St. John, and the Apocryphal Revelations. 8. The Bible Prophets and the Classical Oracles contrasted. 9. The Apocryphal Books of the Old Testa ment, and the reason for their exclusion from the Canon. It is a work of real value, not sectarian at all, not even Theological, but is just what it purports to be, a History of the Books of the Bible, suffi ciently critical to meet the wants of the Professor, the Clergyman and the Student, and yet so sim plified as to be the book needed by every Family and every Sunday School Teacher as the Com panion of the Bible. This book is new and fresh from the pen of the author, who has long been urged to its preparation by Presidents of Colleges, and leading Ministers and Scholars of the various Christian denomina tions, and has given his best energies to its pletion. It contains about 600 pages octavo, printed from new and beautiful clear type, selected pressly for this work, illustrated with a fine s portrait of the author, fac-similes of the d manuscripts on which the Bible ex il was written, very curious and interesting, and other full page illus trative engravings, all in the highest style of en graving, by the best artists in the country. It is ono of the most popular books ever published. It will be furnished to subscribers in neat and sub stantial Extra English Cloth Binding for the low price of.. Fine Leather Library Binding..

WELL KNOWN wit once said : Clothes do not .ipake the man, but they do very much to make him look respectable ufter he is made.
