To the Reader.— The outside of this iwue will be found very attractive. Two gems will be found iu our poetic casket. The article on Middletown, of course, will fee read by everyone. A timely article on chills and fevers and an interesting Agri cultural Department. By the way, al though this journal is published iu one of the most flourishing agricultural regions in the country, and the farmers here are no ted for their thrift and successful farm Mianagcment, not one solitary contribution io our Agricultural or Horticultural de partment, has been received from the pen of any of them. Ought this to be soV flight they not contribute tlie results of their experience to the general stock of agricultural knowledge, for their own and the public good. Suppose the men of proficiency in all other departments of hu man knowledge, should lock up, within themselves, all they know ; what progress would the world make in science and art V Would it not retrograde ? Of course it would. It is because they neglect not the injunction "to do good aud to comm catr," that knowledge is increased. Of what benefit to society is the wisdom of any man, if, like the tortoise, he shuts him self within his shell, and will not impart it to others ? ii Si'mex County All Right. —A county lacoting was held in Georgetown on Tues day last, by the Democrats of »Sussex, to nominate a county ticket, was very large, inations aetive and animated, but harmo nious. The following gentlemen compose the ticket : For Senator—George Russell. For Representatives—John Hickman, Shepherd P. Houston, John fê. Bacon, Philip C. Matthews, Wm. B. Tomlinson, Peter Robinson, Isaac Conaway. For Sheriff—Samuel II. Layton. For Coroner—A. Marvel. For Levy Court—John H. Hosen, Lit Ile Creek Hundred; Thomas J. Perry, Broadkiln; Wiu. D. Payntcr, Lewes aud Behoboth; John Macklin, Georgetown; Thomas Hearn, Broad Creek; E. Walter, Baltimore. Many Republicans were preseut, attrac ted by the hope and expectation of a Kil kenny cat fight over the nominations. But Sussex Democrats have a stronger devo tion to the principles of their party, than io fly off at a tangent, for having been de feated in a nomination. Seeing only har mony and enthusiasm where they expected 4i*jumtiou and strife, they quietly got into their carriages and went home, with their hopes considerably dashed. The meeting was ably and eloquently addressed by Hon. J. Glancey Jones, Hon. Willard Saulsbury, and B. T. Biggs, Esq. The Democrats are confident they will carry the county by an increased ma jority. The Radical Majority in Maine.— The meeting The coutest for the nom The New York Tribune yes ierday estimates the Radical majority in Waioe st about 18,000.

Tlie Unnatural Geographical DivUlon of this Prnlnitula. Prom a letter of the Rev. J. II. Light bourne, published in the St. Michael » Comet, we extract the following reference to the unnatural division of the Peninsula lying between the Delaware and Chesa peake Bays. The subject is one that has often presented itself to the consideration of the people inhabiting this territory, and some years ago there was some legislation in the Legislatures of the respective States composing the Peninsula, looking to the combination of the several parts into one State, but it ultimately failed of consum mation. The geographical division Is an unnatural one, and ought never to have been made. The entire territory, from the Potomac to the Delaware, belonged to Lord Baltimore, and only the cupidity of Win. Penn, and his successful intrigues Ht Court, succeeded in effecting a change. If these unnatural and inconvenient geo graphical lines ever should be removed, and a new name sought out for the new State, we enter our protest against the one suggested by tlie Reverend gentleman aboved mentioned. That name embraces the first syllables of the three States now joint owners of this territory, and is ns un natural as the geographical division which the gentleman so justly complains of. It would be more expressive, to call the new State " Peninsula," or to extend the pres ent name of this State over the whole ter ritory. Perhaps this would be better than the selection of a new name, because Delaware being one of the original thir teen, it would never do to obliterate her name from the map of States. " In traveling over this Peninsula, and in studying its geography, the homogene ousness of its products, soil, climate, and people; its division, by State lines, ap pears not only arbitrary, but unnatural. Nature has her laws, aiid they should be respected. Let any intelligent man sit down with the world's map before him, and he cannot fail to see how the political divisions of the earth are fixed by nature. The Pyrenees form Mje boundary line between France and Spain- The Scandi navian chain separates X°vway and Swe den, as naturally as if it wore the single purpose of their erection. The Alps wall in little Switzerland. The Rhine, the Dauube, the Baltic, the many rivers, and seas with which the map of tlie world is interspersed, are all the lines drawn by nature dividing the earth into various and distinct nationalities. The lines of nature separting this Peninsula from the rest of the country are so well defined, that its present division by State lines is unnatur al. The broad and beautiful Delaware and Chesapeake Rays form a natural line between ns, New Jersey and the Western Shore of Maryland, while the Alan tie ocean completes our iusulation by separa ting us from " all the world and the rest of mankind," Were I invested with su preme power I would consolidate our tri partite Peninsula into one State, and com pounding the abbreviations by which it is known, I would name it I)el-mar-vir ; be ing ouiy a citizen and not an autocrat, I can only raise a feeble voice, aud give a single vote for a Peninsular State." Decline in the Price of Lanp.—=F rom the same letter, mentioned above, we take the following allusion to a decline in the price of land, which is attributed to the total failure of tlie peach crop this year. We can hardly suppose that the failure of the peach crop has depressed the price of real estate to the extent indicated. It may have occasioned some distrust among the timid experimenters or adven turers; but why should the failure of a friRt crop depress the price of land any more than the occasional failure of the grain crop. We should think that the stringen cy in monetary uffairs w«Ji the pause of these farms not meeting with ready pur chasers, rather than the failure of the peach crop, "The total failure of the peach crop this year, has to some extent depressed the real estate business. I was informed by a real estate agent at Grceusborough, that lands were now offering there at greatly reduced A number of farms have been rc prices. eently offered at public sale, without find ing a purchaser.

Un ^ * ° ! The Republicans are jubilant over the fact that they have not been beaten iu their strougholds of Vermont and Maine. They insist that they have made heavy gains on the vote of last year. The Dewoeiats contend, that that election was influenced hy local issues, and particularly hy tlie re strictive liquor law, which reduced the Re publican majority below 12,000. They compare the result on Monday, with the vote of I860, when, as now, Governor and Congressmen were elected, and they find that they have gained nearly 10,000 votes, and reduced the Republican major ity of I860 by that number.

IMwiu Spruanec, living in the Neck, about four miles from this town, whilst eating life supper, tasted some meat which had been prepared for him by the colored girl (life wife and children were in town) which was so hitter that he ejected it. After rinsing his mouth with vinegar (supposing his taste was affected by fever and ague) he tried another mouthful, hut it still tas ted unpleasant, lie gave a piece of the meat to a small dog, which it ate and died in a few minutes. He then accused the girl of putting poison in his food, which she at first denied, hut finally confessed that she did it at the instigation of a negro man living with Mr. fê. named Win. Latn bertson. The girl, whose name is Mary Etta Murphy, had a hearing before Es quire Ctirrow on Saturday and the man on Sunday. They were committed to jail. Lanibçrtson, who is about -1 years old, denies all complicity in the matter. lie had had a difficulty with Mr. S. several days previous, and was chastised pretty scvcrly \—Smyrna Ti mes. Row at a Negro Woods Meeting.—A desperate row occurred at a negro woods meeting at Iron Hill, near Newark, Sunday afternoon, tlie (itli, inst. in wliic i a number of persons were badly beaten. Mr. Asbury Whittaker, who hail kindly granted them the use of the grounds for meeting, on seeing a disposition anion : the negroes to create a disturbance, tool; the liberty to remonstrate witli them on the impropriety of their conduct, when lv was brutally attacked by a rough, over hearing negro from Chester county, and so badly beaten that his life was dispnired of. This was the signal for a general me lee, and tlie few whites who were on the ground wore attacked, knocked down, and finally driven from the place. The ex citement became so intense that a portion of tlie more orderly negroes got frightened fear that they Finally tlie got to fighting among themselves, when several of them were se verely beaten. Surely negro rowdyism is not confined to tlie South, hut is 1 ning to show itself even in Delaware, and the sooner it meets with its merited retri bution the better for both races.— Del. Gazette. O I and left the ground fr might ho roughly dealt with, rowdy negroes 111 The Democrats of Appoquiiiimiiik Hun dred, met at Blackbird, on Saturday last, and nominated the following ticket ;—As sessor, James C.

The Democrats of St. Georges Hundred will meet at Odessa, at 3 o'clock this af ternoon, to nominate candidates for As sessor, Inspector, and Rond Commissioner. The Democrats of Christiana raised a beautiful hickory pole one hundred feet high, in that village on Saturday last, and flung their starry banner to the breeze. The Democrats of Red Lion Hundred have nominated for Assessor, Loontine N. McWhorter; Inspector, John T. ('hoars; Hoad Commissioner, Samuel R. Sutton.

Fatal Accident.— Mr. John Seward, from the neighborhood of Hazlettville, brought a load of peaches to the railroad depot at Dover Saturday week, and while unloading his horse was startled and gave the wagon a jerk, causing Mr. S. to fall backwards, and to receive a severe contu sion hack of one ear. Though stunned by the injury, he soon got up and drove his team to Wallace & Burton's store. While purchasing some goods there, lie complained of being very sick, was taken up stairs, put to hod and a physician sent for. He soon heemne unconscious, and died the following morning at 3 o'clock. Mr. Seward leaves a wife and children. Wq understand tlpit his life was insured. — Delawarean. The advocates of Temperance in this town and neighborhood, are consulting together for the purpose of devising some plan to chock the progress of intemper ance, which seems to he on the increase everywhere. Public meetings are talked of, to he held in the Hall, at night, and it is proposed to invite speakers who are capable of awaking public interest in this subject. Due notice will he given of the meetings, when the arrangements are completed. Frost and Ice.—T here was a heavy frost yesterday morning, and ice formed in bottoms and exposed places. We have rarely witnessed a more extreme change iu the temperature, than has been experi enced within the past few days. On Sun day, the 13th inst. and for three days pre vious, tlie mercury ranged from 92 to 90, in the shade ; on Friday morning, the 18th, there was frost and ice. In a shel tered place, at sunrise, the thermometer registered 40. Gen. Torhert, the Republican nominee for Congress, Chauncey M. Dcpew, Wm. C. Spruance, and Gen. Tenney, addressed the Republican Mass Meeting at Moore's woods on Wednesday. Tlie Wilmington Cornet Rand was present, 'and about a thousand persons, according to the Com mercial. The Gazette says there were about 600 present. The Democratic Pic-nic at McCrone's woods, on the 10th inst. was largely at tended. Capt. Joseph M. Barr, presided, and able speeches were made bv Theodore Oehlshlagcr, of Philadelphia, Major Riggs and others. ; . Bryan's Grand Menagerie and Circus is to visit Middletown early in October.

K. direct tax in this (Kent) comity without writs of distraint ; that money enough is not in the hands of the farmers to meet their daily wants. An ef fort will he made by the Deputies, through C. II. 11 Day, Ksi|. to induce the Com missioner of Internal Revenue to postpone the time for making returns—until the farmers can realize something from their crops. The pencil failure has proved a terrible blow to many of our farmers. The favorable prospects late in the Spring in duced many to ' 1 branch out," and they are now pushed to meet their obligations. So complete is the failure in this fruit that orchards numbering il, (MIO or 4,000 trees have not yielded a single basket of peaches. Tun AuKiri'i/run.u. Exhibition.—T he Delaware State Agricultural Exhibition under the uspiccs of the New Castle Coun ty Agricultural Society, commenced near Wilmington, on Thursday. The exhibi tion is said to exceed some of former years. The trotting, to-day, bids fair to be very fine. A rumor has obtained currency that Lady Thorn and Mountain Buy will be on the course. We learn that C. II. 11. Massey, Esij. has produced, this season, on his farm in Kent county, Md. near Massey's Cross Roads, twelve tons of Grapes, chiefly of the Delaware and Clinton varieties. These grapes arc being sent to market at 1(1 cents per lb. and a part of them manufactured into wine. Admitting all to have been disposed of at 1(1 cents per pound, *'\e crop would yioicftiio proprietor Boughman, Thomas & Co. Wilmington, have issued their Map of the l'ciiinsuhi. Persons wanting it can leave their orders with Mr. .T. Z. Crouch, Postmaster, .Mid dletown. a The Maine Klee« ion. The New York World, of Tuesday, says;—The election in Maine yesterday, as was anticipated in these columns, re sulted in the success of the Radicals, hut by a reduced majority as compared with that of 1866, ami even of those of 1864 and 1860. A very heavy vote was polled, each party making gains on the vote of 1806, with the advantage in favor of tlie Democrats. The following table slioufs the Radical majority on the vote for Gov ernor and President since 1800 in eadh year in which representatives in Con were chosen, at which elections alone 1« full vote was polled. Had. Mai. in 1868 9.6Ö1 7 I860. 3.016 9.6-0 ! 1.1 186 1868. ,18,046 These figures are in every respect grati fying to the Democracy. The Democrat» in Maine have made a splendid fight, and despite the heavy odds against them have succeeded in reducing the Radical majority of over 27,000 to a trifle over 18,000. A proportionate gain in the States which hold their elect jot ),s in October will give it» Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio by hand majorities, and in Nov ember will triumphantly elect ymour and Blair.
