On Saturday night last a nmn accompanied by his wife,while returning to their home from a store, near Song Woods, Tal bot co., Md., were followed by two negro men, named Geo. Wheeler and Wm. Hines. When the negroes overtook Whitman the one named Wheeler struck him a violent blow over the head with a heavy piece o e carriage shaft, knocking him senseless to the ground. The black fiend then turned upon Mrs. Whitm. her also with the shaft breaking her skull and killing her almost instantly. Mr Whitman, in a short time, returned to consciousness and went buck to the store and told what had been done. A number of persons went to the place and found the woman lying dead upon the ground. They then went in search of the murderers, and on the next morning, the negro, Wheeler, was found behind the barn of Dr. Neal with his throat bad ly, though not fatally cut. He hud tried to commit suicide. He confessed that he had kill ed the woman, and implicated the other negro, Hines, as his assistant. The excited people could scarcely be prevented from lynching the villains. They were lodged in jail. The negro, Wheeler, is said to be a desperate character, having already served two terms in the penitentiary. The reason for this brutal murder was stated in a letter to the Baltimore Sun as follows:—"It seems that both George Wheeler, negro, and Mrs. Margaret Whitman, white woman, have been in the employ of Dr. Neal. One day last week, during a busy season, Wheeler quit work on the plea of sickness. Whitman, who passes the house of Wheeler in going from her house to Dr. Neal's, saw Whee ler at work in his garden and reported the fact to the doctor. By some means Wheeler learned that Mrs. Whitman had informed upon him and vowed vengeance" named Whit d struck The Agricultural Association. The regular quarterly meeting of the Penin sular Agricultural Association, to be held to-day, will be the most important meeting since the organization, as the report of the several Com mittees will be heard, and the time of holding the Exhibition fixed. The Oxford fair will be held Sept. 30th, Oct. 1st, and 2nd. The Chester County Fair, at Westchester, Oct. 7th, 8th, and 9th, and, doubtless, will be well attended, as those associations are in a flourishing condition. The exhibition here will doubtless attract very many persons, particularly from the,South and East, and it becomes our farmers to endeavor to make Fair , second to none. The grounds are rapidly approaching the appearance of a first class Fair Ground, and we learn from the committee that nothing will be omitted, if possi ble, that wjll add to the comfort of visitors, and everything that will render it pleasant, as well fis profitable to exhibitors, will be done. Certain ly this place, being easy of access from all parts pf the Peninsula by rail, and in a central posi tion m regards location, should be able to muke such a display of products, grain, fruit, and stock ef all kinds, as to properly exhibit the prod activeness of our soil, and the thrift of people. Actuated by such feelings, thçre can be "gQ »pel) word as fail." Sale ef a Railroad. The many efforts of the stockholders and di rectors of the J. k B. R. R. to effect a sale of it, hate at last been successful. The Road was sold last week, to the "Old Dominion Steamship Co.," of New York, at about the same price as President Hinckley ageed to give last Spring. As soon as the new owners take possession of the road their steamers will make Lewes a stepping point on their trips between New York and Rich mond The change, it is thought, will be a beneficial one to the produce growers of Southern Delaware. Struck by Lightning. During the storm inst. the lightning struck the parsonage of Bethel M. E. Church, and running down the rod, on the North end of the building, destroying two of the insnlaters. Entering one of the win dows it started the casing and scorched the sill and washboard. S'range to say the pastor, Rev. C. F. Shepperd, and family, received no injury, except a slight shock.

McClelland, Jr., son of William McClelland, Sr., who resides in Delaware, suddenly disappeared from Elkton on Monday week, abandoning his store and family and has not been seen nor beard from since. He left a letter in the family bible, bidding good-bye to his f:iends, and stating the reason for his sudden departure, which the Whig says was on account of failure in business and the detection of numerous forgeries upon his father's credit which he know to be inevitable. The senior McClelland held a hill of sale of the goods remaining in the store unsold, and dis posed of them for what they would bring a few days ago. A peculiarity of the decamping Mc Clelland was that he kept ajournai, in which lie noted down among current evonts, the parties' name with whom lie hud pecuniary transactions, difficulties by shaving his notes and other obligations.
