MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 31, 1809. The Peach Season. A busy scene is daily presented in and around our railroad depot, from the hurry scurry of peach wagons, and the babel voices of drivers, car-loaders and agents, mingle together, all intent on getting their fruit to market. How eagerly the ship pers scan their returns and accounts of Mile«.

Tiie Crops in the West.—M r. R. H. Phelps is publishing in the Milford Dotes of a journey westward. paper, He says : The season has been extremely cold, wet •nd backward in New York, and from the Atlantic two thousand miles west, and all crops, except perhaps oats and grass, have nered materially in consequence. Corn, in particular, is miserably poor, and it is thought that much of it is too backward evor to ripen. Au extensive farmer in Michigan told me that the eorn crop in that State was permanently injured by the cold, weather, and much of it would be c_ tire failure. Thus I oonclude that corn will this season bring a better price relatively than wheat. Many of the West ern farmers still have thousands of bushelB ?? nr 8 wl, * a f now in tl,eir granaries, w ich they could have sold at $2.25 per us el, and who can now have the privi oge of selling the same together with this year s crop at less than $1.25 per bushel, heir potatoes would have brought 60 to 70 cents per bushel last fall, and now they are a drug at 20 cents, and what their tie and bogs cannot consume casos carted out as manure upon their fields. This is a losson to them, dearly bought ; but some porsous prefer to learn their wisdom in the stern school of rieneo.

The Cecil Whig and Democrat are , arc coin also constantly engaged in tho same delectable pastime. If editors were aware how distasteful their quarrels are to the public they surely would desist. A proper self-respect, would also restrain them, one would think.

" Let es uave P's."—A t the roccnt dinner given at the Indian Queen, in Wilmington, by the proprietors of Wbunn's Rawbone Superphosphate, to certain gen tlemen of this neighborhood, comprising some of our largest farmers and peach growers, the following sentiment was giv en:—" Peaches, Phosphate, and Printer's Ink, three of the leading interests of the xl»j."

Those who have succeeded in shipping iu good order are generally satisfied witli their returns, however. This variety will run out by the middle of next week, and will be fol lowed by the Troth's Early, the old early variety, which gives better promise. Line of Steamers to New York.— Two staunch Bea-going steamers, the Gen. Grant and Fire-Fig, commenced making trips between Dona Landing and New York this week, for the purpose of car rying peaches. These wc under stand, have been chartered by responsible parties about Dover, who expect soon to place a third boat on the lino. Two propellers are to run from the Eagle's Nest, Smyrna Creek, to Phila delphia. The growers will ship most by the Jersey Blue, however, because Capt. Taggart has been at about $1000 expense in cleaning out the Creek to accommodate them. — , S myr na limes. The Milford Friend says :—Somebody will either make a fortune or file a peti tion in bankruptcy liefore the present peach season is over.

The Proposed Railroad from Elkton to Massey's.— Mayor Banks and a select committee of the Baltimoro City Council made a reconnoisanoe of the route of the proposed railroad from Elkton to Massey's Cross Roads on Monday and Tuesday of last week, and also of the liuo of the Kent Railroad to the Chesapeake. The Ches tertown Transcript says : The visiting party was met at Elkton by committee on the part of tho Kent road, (with carriages) who escorted them over the proposed route of road from Elktou to Massey's Cross Roads, arriviug at Clics tertown on Monday night. During the evening the committee and tho Hon. Geo. Vickers, President of the road, were ser enaded by the Kent Cornet Band. On Tuesday morning the whole party started in carriages over the route of tho Kent road to the Chesapeake, where a bountiful dinner was awaiting them, spvead under the shade, on the banks of the Bay. Tho strangers having received a bird's-eye view of our county—with which they expressed themselves highly pleased—sat down to a good old.fashioned Eastern Shore dinner; to which the waters of the Bay contribu ted its share. Gen. Vickers, the Presi dent of the road, presided at the table; on his right Mayor Banks ; and the members of the Council right and left. After dinner, toasts were given and speeches made by Gen. Vickers, Mayor Banks and others, and the company re turned to tho city much pleased with their visit. Railroad Appropriations.—A gentle man of Townsend, just returned from Baltimore, informs us that the City Coun cil have appropriated $800,000 to con struct the proposed Railroad from Elkton to Massey's, and $200,000 to aid the Kent Railroad from Massey's to Deep Landing. This will bo welcome news to the friends of these improvements. Trespass.— Great complaint is made by fruit growers in this vicinity, of trespass er in their orchards, who carry off their fruit by baskets full, break their trees, and otherwise injure their property. The law of 1808 affords ample protection to fruit growers, if it is only enforced. This law provides that any person who shall wilfully enter the enclosure of another without his consent, and take aud carry away any fruit, plant, or vegetable, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not less than tivo, nor more than twenty dollars, and the costs of pros ecution, and in default of payment, shall be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not less than five nor more than thirty days. We publish this act for the ing of trespassers, as we have been assured by a number of fruit growers that they mean to break up the lawless practico of plundering peach orchards and berry patches, by making an example of every person taken in the act, or in any manner detected in trespassing upon or iu robbing their premises of fruit. warn til l. Tmvv n qq Gut I own Commissioners. -The no tion, or commonly received opinion, that Middletown is without a board of Commis sioners for tho current year, is not found ed upon the act incorporating the town. As there was a failure to elect a board at the last election, or as it was so decided by a portion of the board, at least, the for mer board held over, and are as much the commissioners of the town now, as they were during the term for which they elected. The charter expressly declares that the commissioners shall continue in office one year, " or until their successors are duly elected." It is clear, therefore, that as there was no election of their sors at tile last election, the board arc still authorized and bound under the charter to act, and to continue in office until their successors are "duly elected." and expected, therefore, that they will sumo their duties under the charter, and give attention to the business of the corpo ration, and to the condition of the town, which is so much needed. were Mlc It is hoped re " The merciful man is merciful to his If he cannot afford a fly-net to keep off the swarms of voracious phlebot omists that are ready to devour his poor beast, he can at least pluck sprigs of wild indigo, sassafras or huckleberry bushes, aud interweave them in his gear or har ness.

There is no one whose Hoos Running at Large. Some per sons in this town, taking advantage of the fact that we havo had no acting town au thorities for some time past, have turned their hogs loose to roam at large through the streets, rooting around and rubbing their filth against trees and whitewashed fences Such people should understand thut it is against the law of the State for hogs to run at large, and if they want to "save their bacon," they bad better put in pens aud keep it there, or the proper offi cers will see to it.

Who says we have no On Saturday morning last, Charles Toll, a farmer, living about a mile from Milford, commenced threshing wheat, when about seventy-five bushels had been threshed out the machine was discovered to be on fire. The fire almost immediately spread to his wheat stacks and they were soon wrapped in flames and the whole wheat crop was destroyed. It is estimated that there was 300 bushels of wheat, and the loss is esti mated at $600, the machine being de stroyed but the horse and horse power caping injury. The fire was caused by friction resulting from a crooked cog. There was but a moderate attendance at the Ilall, on Monday and Tuesday nings, to see Sanford's Opera Troupe.

Tho pcoplo demand of Napoleon a return from imperial absolutism to parlia mentary rule, that his own absolute will shall bend to that of their own as expres sed through the Corps Legislatif. It is said that he will make concessions to these demands, thus showing himself to be wiser than the Bourbons, who conceded nothing and lost all. The liberal spirit is active, slowly but surely undermining the old system of things and making even the Imperial throue insecure and tottering. Napoleon sees the situation perfectly, and is not slow in acting. He has signified an inteution of grunting many of the points made by the opposition, and in or der that matters may not be hurried to unseeming conclusion has prorogued the Corps Legislatif, until near the end of October. This is the present position of In the meantime, the op ponents to Imperial rule have resolved to keep before the nation the principles ad vocated by them in their demand for the right of resolution or interpellation.

Thiers is outspoken in favor of immediate action of a bold and aggressive character, hut Jules Favre advocates silence for the present, hut entire readiness to take ad vantage of any change in public opinion or governmental situation which may cur during the suspension of tho sittings of the Corjis Legislatif . The New York Tribune well remarks: "It is au evi dence of emboldened liberalism, and equally of imperial failing, that one hundred and tour members of the new Legislature, in cluding men of the Conservative class, demanded that the Legislative body should be free to criticise the policy of the _ eminent, and to put questions, to make motions and amendments without subjec ting them previously to the veto of Na poleon's council. Third Party demanding a responsible Ministry, and the freedom of Parliament from the trammels of official rules, reck ons upon the unprecedented strength of hundred and fifty-five votes, leaving the government in a minority of twenty two." This is truly a dilemma, frfftn which entire escape is difficult without re course to force, to tho blast, when once down, can lie regain his up right position once more ? Will not the people clamor for a duplication of all grants of power in their favor ? Assur edly. This is the history of all popular movements. King John yielded points to his Barons, and the current, then started, swept away many not thought of at the inception of the movement. If the result of an election is marked by radical alterations in the government of France, the people will soon make their voices heard through that trumpet in a still more emphatic manner. And, when the goal of resistance is reached, what can the Em peror do ? He can use tho army.
