All letters should be addressed to The Middletown Transcript, Middletown, Del. Foreign Sltwi. Cable despatches from Barcelona, Spain, via London, report that the whole country is in an excited state. Martial law has been proclaimed in the province of Cata lonia. The latest despatches received from the scene of the war in South America at Lisbon deny the report of the capture of Aßcunsion by the Brazillian fleet, and states that after the battle with the Para guayan gunboats the fleet returned to Cu rupaity. The situation of General Lopez is not so critical as has been reported. The Para guayans claim that their gunboats obtained a decided success over the Brazillian iron •clads in the recent naval fight. The cas ualties were heavy on both sides, but no accurate report has been received. The Earl of Cardigan, who died in Eng land a few days ago, was the leader of the 'celebrated charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava. George Francis Train still continues an inmate of the Dublin City Marslmlsea, de tained at the suit of the Ebbu Vale Iron Company. Ciusfikld. —This place, formerly called Homers' Cove, is the southern terminus of the Peninsular Rail Road. It is situated on little Anuamessex river, about five, miles from its mouth. This river empties into Tangier Sound. It is navigable for large vessels and affords harbor for hun dreds of boats. The first building erected was a depot for the cars, situated on a long platform or pier, extending midway the river. At or near the depot, erected also on piles, stand three largo oyster pick ling establishments, two well stocked stores, ticket office, custom house, and m other minor edifices. There is, also, an engine house, three hotels, drug store, dwellings, &e. Town lots have been laid out and are selling rapidly. It is a fact that no business lias ever been started at Urisfield that has not met with success. Indeed it is aptly styled th'i Chicago of the Ea.stern Shore. Advices from Hayti report a bloody bat tle near Gonaivcs, in which the Govern ment forces were defeated. The Cacos after their victory re-took several towns and captured the enemy's artillery and a number of prisoners. Ka.stern clieeso made in copper vessels is poisoning people in Ilinois. Grasshoppers are coming out in swarms . in some parts of Iowa. MARKIKD. On the 2d inst.'at the Parsonage* of the M. E. Church, iu Chester, Pa. by the Rev. II. E.

Every Dropper will be warranted to do all that is herein claimed lor them, or' they will be taken back and the money refunded. Price $2,35.
