We obeyed the summons, and approaching the carriage lifted our Panama with respectful defer ence ; when lo ! what should meet our de lighted vision hut two baskets of the lar gest, brightest, finest strawberries, ever beheld, enough to tempt of an alderman ! They were from Mr. Henry Walker, who resides on the farm of Mrs. Budd, in Sassafras Neck, and were of the variety knqwn as the Lady finger. Finer hemes we large, bright scarlet colo., of them was enough to make water. From a patch df 27 by 38 feet, 164 quarts had been picked ; and from 30 to 40 quarts more are to ripen, making -tb«_yield 200 quarts from the above " Misfortunes never cerne singly," it is said, but in groups. So of good fortune ; it piles in upon one in heajtg. A few hours later, the same day, a young gentleman drew up, with his large farm wagon and pair, in front of our office, laden with crates of luscious berries, and handed out several quarts of Wilson's Albany Seedlings. These also were very large and fine, and were from Hr. James Shall crose, one of our most energetic, indus trious, and successful young farmers. Mr. Shallcross has about, three acres in culture aud will Bell about 10,000 quarts this season. we the palate ver saw—long, the very sight one's mouth area. On Wednesday wc received from Mr. A. II. Hushebeck, of this town, a quart of very large ant^superior strawberries of the " Agriculturalist" variety. Several of them measured nearly foul' inehes in cir cumference, and were of Very fine flavor. One measured 4J inches, Mr. H. is a very snccessful grower of small fruits, plants, Ac. On the same evening wc received from Henry Clayton, Esq. of " Woodside," three quarts of Wilson Seedlings, large and woll developed, and of very fine flavor.

Tho fair donor has our thanks. We tender to all our friends for their kind rcmcmbraoco of us, our warmest thanks. re We have received froiri William II. Newton k Co. General Land Agents and Brokers in Real Estate, N(t 23 Lexington . Street, Baltimore, a Descriptive Catalogue of Southern Farms, Plantations, Mills, kc. 4c. To the inquirer after real estate this pamphlet contains much valuable informa tion in relation to lands in the market in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Geor gia, Texas, and other Southern States. The dexcription of the Northern Neck of Virginia, its geographical position, soil, climate, eontiguity to market, 4c. is well worth the attention of purchasers and spec ulators. The pamphlet may be seen by calling at this office. The Colorado Citizen, published at Col umbus, Texas, hoists the name of Major Robert L. Foard, as a candidate for Gov ernor of Texas. Mpjor Foard is a native of Cecil county, Md. snd wis on a visit to his friends in this section about s year ago. The Citizen says of him ; "We place at our mast-head the name of Major Robert L. Foard as a candidate for Governor, believing that no better man for the poeition could found in the State, llis modesty is only equaled by his hones ty and ability. If he should bo elected, the people can then truthfully say, they havo an honest snd faithful publie servant at the helm of State."

How to Make a Town.—Encourage every one, especially new men, to eome in and settle among yon, particularly those who are worthy and aetive, whether they have capital or hot. Their labor alone is worth money. Those who have capital will buy lots, build houses, or tear out and remodel the old ones. Go to work and atimulate every legitimate enterprise by giving it all the friendly encouragoment you ean, or by uniting your industry influ ence and capital in the common cause. Cultivate a public spirit, and talk less than you work. Help your neighbor. If he is in danger of breaking down, prop him up in some way, cither by kind words, good counsel, or a lift from your pocket book. If he gets fairly down before you know his situation, set him on bis feet again—his misfortune is to be pitiod, not blamed—and his talents and labor are worth money to the community. Besides, it may some day be your turn to need a corresponding sympathy. Encourage your local authorities in making public im provements for the good of the town you live in, for tho good of its prospects, of your neighbors, and in fact of everything likely to advance the general good. It is such little things that make a town grow. Their cost is insignificaut when divided up among all, but when concentrated into a general effort they do the business tho roughly. The Republicans carried all the wards in Washington, at the local election on Monday, and their majority is nearly 5000. Among the successful candidates were a colored city register, a colored alderman and seven colored counciluien. The Dem crat8 nominated no ticket. A "Citizen's Ticket," was brought out, which as an abandonment of all principle, produced a general apathy which suffered tho election to go by default. A negro named Stewart, who voted the "Citizens' Ticket," was mobbed by the negroes, at the polls. The police interfered to protect him, when they were clubbed and stoned by this new ele ment in our popular elections. The police fired upon the mob killing one man and wounding several others. Several of the police were wounded also. These are the advantages of negro enfranchisement by the Radicals. Our elections are hence forth to be nothing but scenes of violence and popular tumult. The "Pcrsioator" or Peach Manure, is a new fertilizer, manufactured by Wm. Crichton k Son by a formula prepared by Dr. David Stewart. It is claimed for this fertilizer that it supplies the peculiar ele ments of the Peach ; if so it is invaluable to peach growers. It is also recommended for tobacco, corn, clover and other grasses.

Dzak Editor There appeared a notice in the last Transcript of a game of Base Ball, played some two weeks ago, between the Academic of Middletown and the Defiance Jr. of Odessa,' in which I do not think tho Junior Club received Justice. You prob ably know that the club of Middletown is composed of young men, tho most of whom, we should judge, have reached tlic age of twenty-one years, and several some what beyond that age. There were two, at least, who played against the Defiance Jr. on the day above mentioned, whe be longed to the first nine of the old organi zation. While on tho other band the club front our town are composed of boys under tbe age of twenty-one years ; in fact some of them wero quite small. So Mr. Editor, you will readily see why it was the club of your town scored so much higher than the club of Odessa. We would not for one moment wish to make the impres sion that that club do not play well and are not able to win faitly the larger score in the game, for boys are not expected to play base ball as well as experienced men, but that your readers might know how unequally the clubs were matched on the day of the game, and why they were "handsomely" * whipped. . ..'ift' Yours, Ac.

Thx Festival. —The Town Hall Festi int of attraction val has been tho great po with our citixcns since Wednesday evening last. The Hall is most tastefully and beautifully decorated with evergreens and flowers arranged with exquisite skill and disposed so as to produco the most pleasing effect. Large pines and cedars reaching nearly to the lofty ceiling give a sylvan aspect to the scene, which is heightened by the trilling of birds suspended in cages and hung in a bower with arches trimmed with evergreens, beneath which is amoss eovered fountain supplied from the water tank constructed in the building, from which ascend beautiful jets-d'euu, which break into silvery spray, and curving gracefully, trickle down in crystal drops from the pendant ferns, and fall among the moss and cacti, which lend their wildering beauty to the fairy scene, and cd into a gravel-enameled tank at its base, where, to uso a slightly altered couplet from Pope, arc receiv Shimmering greens the mossy margin grace Watched by the sylvan genius of the place. Tho fountain is supported by a water nymph bearing a flower-vase, and in tho vase a green-coated tenant of the pools from whoso open throat one may fancy he hears the familiar thorough-bass, particu larly when the bass-viol of the Ampbions is giving forth its volume of sound. In one corner of the room is "Jacob's Well," moss-covered and embowered iu ever greons, from which cooling drafts of re freshing lemonade are dispensed by the fair sheperdess who presides over it. The refreshment tables, of which thero arc half a dozen, are elaborately decorated with wreaths of flowers, beautiful bouquets, and various articles of virtu, creditable alike to the taste and skill of the fair artists, while luscious strawberries and tempting cakes, beautifully ornameuted, add a coronal to the whole. The Amphions enliven the occasion each evening with their choicest music, and the festival is a scene of social rc-union and enjoyment to our citizens, above and beyond the mere gratification of taste. Wo are pleased to add that the fes tival will be continued, on Monday and Tuesday evenings, after the Carncross k Dixey Minstrels have closed. We received, yesterday, from Mr. Sam uel Townsend, a sample of new Goodrich Potatoes, as large as hen's eggs. Also another sample of Hale's Early Peaches, which "takes down" anything of the kind wo have seen. A twig of twelve inches in length contained 25 largo healthy well de veloped peaches, and one of five inches tainod 8, all from his Somerset orchard. A twig of Hale's Early, from his orchard at Townsend, lore tho largest peaches have yet seen. A Washington dispatch of June 9, says :—The Commissioner of Patents af firmed the decision of the Board of Ex aminers in the interference case between W. II. Hamilton and C. C. Foster, of Odessa, Del. for grain drills, and ordered the patent to issue to Mr. Foster. con we Another Race. —There will be another running race over the Warwick Course, on Tuesday, June 22nd between the hours of 3 nnd 5, for a purse of §200, between the Roan Mare, entered by W.

Henry Hiller, who had his foot and kle crushed in the cog wheel in Vandyke k Matthews' tile yard, Odessa, and the same amputated, has so far recovered to be able to sit up and will be about in a few days. Carncross k Dixey's Minstrels will be here on next Monday and Tuesday nings. Everybody is coming to hear this fun-loving, mirth-provoking troupe, which are engaged for tho benefit of our Public School. Messrs. Polk k Hyatt, of Odessa, have about five acres of Itaspberries arid Black berries, on which are estimated to bo 17', 400 quarts, which if they bring able price will pay the owners handsomely. The prospect for a large crop of peaches south of Odessa is quite flattering, and the probabilities arc that the yield of the trees and size of the peaches will make the peach interest quite an item in that section. C. Watkins, of Odessa, has sold about 60,000 peach baskets, principally to the peach growers around the neighborhood of Odessa, and could, if he could secure the baskets, sell many more. The running race between Tony and Fannie came off on Tuesday last, and suited in a victory for the latter, other races, both running and trotting, also occurred. Rev. Dr. Patton will tomorrow give his congregation an account of the union a bout to be effected between tho Old and New School Presbyterian Churches.

To the Pcmeli Growers of Delaware, Sell Peachce to he Shipped to Mar ket by Hail Hoad. Who Ship Thero will be a meeting of the Peninsu lar Peach Growers' Association, held in Dover, at 2 o'olock, P. M. on Tuesday, the 15th inst. I as one member of that Association, urgently request all of you to attend, whether you are members of said Association or not, so that your out let to market your peaches, is by Rail road. The late Legislature have taxed the ears that are to carry our peaches, and tho Rail Road Company have in fomed the Executive Committee of said Peach Growers Association that they will lay on five dollars per car load, or about one cent per basket, on peaches carried over their road, to meet this ear tax im posed by our Legislature. This said Leg islature imposed no tax on boats, therefore those shipping by boats get clear of this tax. Now it is the duty of all Peach Growers along the line of the Railroad to meet and say whether or not, they will submit to paying fifteen to twenty thou sand dollars tax imposed on them, whilst shippers by water pay nothing, under the plea that boats or vessels are common car riers between States, aud cannot be taxed. Now since Railroads have been made, a uew question has arisen, whether or not Railroad cars running through different States, should not be considered as much common carriers as boats,* and as much entitled to be relieved of the tax above mentioned as boats, and as the late Leg islature has seen proper to level their guns at the peach interest and freighters on the Railroad, I want a full turn out, and this matter fully discussed, and a determina tion arrived at, to raise money to contest it in court, and if necessary at the ballot box. As a Peach Grower I shall use every lawful and political means I can to get clear of this outrageous tax imposed on persons who send their products to market by Railroad. I have no respect for a Legislature who in making a tax bill'will thus discriminate between the citizens living along the Railroad and those along the water. Samuel Townsend. Townsend, June 7th, 1869. Recognition of Cuban Belligerent Rights.— The representatives of the Cu ban patriots in Washington assert that iu a brief time Bolivia, Venezuela and ral of the South American States will fol low the example of Peru in recognizing the belligerent rights of the Cubans. The same agent of the Cubans who effected a recognition from Peru will visit the seve capi tals of the other South American States, aud it is said that there is but little doubt of his success. The leaders of the Cuban revolution have assurances from the prominent and influential men of these Governments that their Envoy will meet with a hearty reception. They are all anxious for the independence of Cuba and arc all disposed to make against Spain. most common cause There seems to be well-organized de termination on the part of the Grant ad ministration to drive the white laboring men out of position in the Navy-yards, printing offices, nnd other places, by the introduction of negroes. The trades' unions have their rights, and among them is the right to refuse admittace to the ne groes in their organizations, appears to be no doubt they intend to do ; lienee they protest against the employment of negroes, as they would any one else not members of the Union, regular and efficient workmen should unanimously strike against such rage, leaving the Government with noth ing but negroes to do tbe work, would'ut there be a delightful state of affairs ?— A r .

This, says the Columbus En quirer, seems' to be tho best find most sensible way of disposing of a perplexing question in, States circumstanced as Ala bama is. Nineteen-twentieths of the groes made competent as jurors by Fcd oral.dictation, are notoriously incompetent ana judges would show their own honesty and impartiality, by excluding them from the jury box on tliat ground, and " with out regard to color." ne The Stinxeckk Will Case. —Some months past a wealthy lady Miss M. M. Stinnecke, of Baltimore, died in Carlisle while under the medical care of Dr. Paul Shoeppe. The body of tlic lady was ta ken to Baltimore aud after having been interred 5 days was taken up and subjec ted to a post-mortem examination, pieion had been excited that the Dr. had poisoned iter. The examination and cireum stances led to the belief that she bad been given prussic acid. The Dr. produced will written by himself and witnessed by bis father, of Miss Stinnecke leaving all her property to him. He was arraigned for trial at Carlisle Pa. ami .found guilty. Trucking.; —Tbe Orumptonian of last week says : In the neighborhood of Crumpton more land is devoted to what is termed " truck" than was ever known before. Of tomatoes there is at least one buudred acres, a large portion being gaged to Messrs. Slaughter A Catlin, „„ 40 cents per bushel for canning, the other part being intended for general Of water melons, about 50 acres, three fourths of which, at least, will be ship ped to market. Many acres are also de voted to potatoes. These operations we look upon merely as an experiment, pre paratory to a greatly increased production in futuro years.

Mexico despatches state that all parties in that country are opposed to selling any Mexican territory to the Unitud States, though there has been manifested a well defined desire for a protectorate.

A largely in creased area of land lias been planted with this cereal. Heavy rains have retarded the planting of corn, nnd itk some places the grain has been washed nut, necessita ting replanting, but there is yet time for putting in the seed in season to secure a good crop. A new Constitution lias been adopted by tbe Constituent Cortes of Spain, and the Liberal members-announced that though opposed to the monarchical clauses of the docuiiieirt, they would support tho govern ment, based upon them. But will their constituents, the men who shed their blood to hapish the Bourbons and jjnake the late reyolution a success?
