[From our Odessa Correspondent.; The cougregntion of the M. E. Church were : favored with a noble and solid sermon on Sab bath morning by BisliO' Scott, from the subject directed by the Evangelic Alliance, and wns very interesting as well as instructive. It wns fol lowed in tile evening by a very able discourse try Reir. J.

National Bank Inst week all the old officers were unanimously re-elected. The election for officers of the Farmers' Mutual Fire Insurance Company of St. Georges and Ap poqilinimink Hundreds met with the same result, no changes bsing made.

Scowdrick k Eliason, No. .2 Cochran Square, was brokcu into on Mon day night last and a considerable amount of cloth and clothi-g stolen- The thieves ef fected an entrance by boring and breaking a large piece out of the back door, which opens .into tlie hotel yard. The hole made was large enough to allow a ipan to crawl through. After getting what they, or he, wanted the thieves or thief went out the same way they came in, leav ing the door closed and barred. All these burg laries have been committed on stores where there were no clerks sleeping. It is usually the cus tom in small towns for the clerks to sleep in the : »9 stores, and as Mr..Stephens at the time his store was robbed, and Messrs. S. k E. at this time were out of clerks and had no one in the store 4hese scoundrels chose the opportunity to com mit the robbery. They take good care to keep clear of those stores whqr* they know there are oçcupants, lest they get a wholesome desc of /lead pills from revolvers. •: Some of our merchants have set spring guns, •Qjr pistols, so arranged that any attempt hereaf ter to opoo doors or windows from the outside may result unpleasantly.

Considerable interest was manifested in the .ejection and a large vole was polled. ,<r Delaware Railroad. > The 23d Annual Meeting of the stockholders of fhe Delaware Railroad Company wns held at v jheif office in Dover, on Thursday January 8th.

Mr Editor :—It was my good fortune to at tend on the evening of the first instant a Supper and Festival, gotten np by the ladies of the Mite Society of Bethel and Summit charge, which was held in the lecture room ofBtthel M. E. Church. Although the evening was rainy at an early hour there was quite a crowd. In due time supper was commenced. Ah! Mr. Editor, I wish you had been there to have seen the grand display of good things which had been provided by the ladies. It would have done you good, to say nothing of the soothing effect the partaking thereof would have had upon the inner man. Although the multitude was fed and fçastçd, still the supply was not exhausted. At a late hour it was found there was a large supply still in reserve, it was therefore determined, by the ladies, to continue on the next evening, which was Accordingly done. Having faired so sump tuously the previous evening, your humide cor respondent concluded to try it Again and al though my progress was slow (owing to the bad state of the roads) I did arrive there, but not the first—oh ! no, the ladies were there as busy as bees, and had such another display that one was ready to exclaim, "surely the best is reserv ed for the last of the feast, bad traveling the number of persons present was not so great ns on the previous evening, still a very respectable number was pçesent, all appear ing determined to make the occasion one of pleasure and profit: all having been fully satis fied there still was an abundance left. Indeed it reminded one of the miraculous feeding of the multitude on the mount, the supply appearing inexhaustible. The ladies not willing that any thing should be lost, called to their aid the in comparable Brooks, who disposed of the remain der in his most happy style to the entire satisfac* tion of all present. 1 have not heard the amount of proceeds realized by the ladies, but have no doubt it whs considerable. All praise to the ladies. Who will dare say hereafter that the ladies of Bethel and Summit cannot succeed in to and The per ed the a of and a aud Owing to the very at by any good cause which they may undertake? Manor.

The Commissioners of School District No. 94 of this (own have engaged the services of the Amateur .Minstrel Troupe to give a Concert in the Town Hall in tho latter part of this month for the benefit of that school. The recent partial destructiou by fire of their school room was a pretty severe blow, and the proceeds of the pro posed Concert are to replenish their exhausted treasury. M. Card ofThnnka. The Citizens who saved my Office furniture from the fire on Wednesday morning last will pleas® acivpt my grateful appreciation of their timely assistance aud my tliauks for their entire preservation of my property. J. Thomas Budd. Mr. T. II. Rothwell also requests us to return his thanks to the citizens who labored so earnest ly to save bis property from destruction.

The parties who hold the claim against the Co. did not intend to push matters to such an extent, as they do not by aqy means consider it necessary. The afTairs of the Co. are in no serious difficulty. They may, at the present time, like everybody else, be a little short of ready funds, but they are ip no danger of insolvency. E.T. E. The Wayside. This ever welcome little Christian weekly came to us Inst week, handsome and sprightly ns ever, and accompanied by an advertising supplement. The Wayiide well merits the encouragement and patronage of the public. It is an eight page re« ligious paper, nicely printed on costly tinted par per of excellent quality, and its columns are fill ed with wholesome, useful and deeply interesting reading. Yet it is furnished to subscribers ut the extremely low price of 50 cents a year. We would like to see some of our lady friends get up a club of subscribers to the Wayside for this year. It is worth more than double its price. Thr Sunday ÇcnooL published by Mr. Hersey, of the Commercial is also deserving of the notice and patronage of the public. It is intended as a heme paper for circulation among the teachers aud pupils of the Sabbath Schools, and is a valuable acquisition to our religious literature.

Editor: —One day Iasi week, in Middletown, I mentioned to some of my acquaintances that I thought it would be well to revive the Agricultural Society of St Georgesand Appuquiniiniijk Hundreds, or get up a uew society, to hold yearly fairs at or near Middlotown, and I see you made mention in your last paper of some such a proposition. Wc might include tbe adjoining hundreds aud the district« of Maryland, nud include fruit-growing aqd the exhibition of our best fruits at said fairs This brunch of business bas sprung up since our old society ceased to act. The old society did a great deal of good, creat ing a rivalry for tbe improvement of lands und fine crops that is felt to this day. The farmers of the Stute of Delaware are in debted to that old society fur tbe first in troduction of a reaper,run by horse power to cut grain on the 4th day of July, 1840. in a field of John P. Coehrun's, opposite hi* house where ho now lives. Hussey, with his reaper, cut. the first wheat ever cut iu this State. It then hud shafts, two horses—one in the shafts and one ahead. The society bought the said reaper, and some parts of it, I am told, were iu use some few years ago near Port Penn, and l would be iu favor of securing, if it could he done, any parts of the old original anil keeping it by a new association. We held our fairs of the old association at Odessa, und I saw very fine displays of stock,grain and other products ; and now, with a good one-half mile course for the display of fine traveling horses, and the fruit growing ad ded to it, I think it would he well worth the attention of the people.
