off in beautiful style, Tow Head getting the
lead at the curve, his friends cheering loudly.
In passing the firs! quarter pole Tow Head
broke and Morrell took the lead, bard pushed
by Andy Johnson. An apparent even race
was kept up for some distance by the latter
horses, till finally Morrell broke and lost his

qnarter pole Morrell and Tow Head had it
neck and neek, but Tow Head broke and
Morrell passed him, as also did Andy John

ground, Morrell then broke and fell behind
Fannie, but on the last qnarter he came up
again, and Andy Johnson also, and a beauti

being even. At last Fannie broke and Mor

Tow Head, 4th ; Marydel last, the crowd
which had become wrought up to the highest
pitch, cheering in the wildest manner.
3<f Beat .—Fair start. As usual, Fannie
took the head at the curve, Morrell being sec

and Fannie had a hard straggle, which con
tinued throughout the first half mile, the
horses passing the stand neck and neck.—
Finally Fannie broke and Andy Johnson who
hod been gaining came np with Morrell, and
for a time they both worked splendidly, but
both broke and Morrell recovering first he

SXTUBDAT MaRNING, SïPT. 26TH.
4th Beal .—After several ineffectual attempts
a fair start was made, and the four horses,
Morrell, Aady Johnson, Fannie and Tow
Head crossed the score together. At the first
carve Fannie, M usual, bolted for the front,
andcnjÿig. too close to Johnson her sulky
'NPrein contact with his and knocked a spoke
oat of his wheel. Morrell took the lend
and kept it during the whole race coming
down the home stretch only half a length
ahead of JohnBon, and winning the race
in 2.34J. The driver of Johnson entered
a protest against the driver of Fannie for a
foul in driving. The judges called the
drivera to the Btand and after a strict investi
gation of the cans# of complaint, the gray
mare Fanny was distanced for foul driving
and the parses, awarded, 1st to Morrell, 2nd
to Andÿ Johnson, the third reverting to the
Association,-Tow Read having been distanc
ed. This horse, which is evidently a fine
animal, was taken sick the night befora and
was not in a condition for work.
This ended the first annual fair. Through
out the entire lime the attendance was very
large, many thousands of people being pres
ent each day, yet there was not a sjpgle in
stance of disorder, and the general expression
was that a more orderly, and better conducted
assemblage of people was never gathered to
gether for any pnrpose
In the success of the fair the most ardent
hopes and anticipations of the members of the
Association were more than realized, the re
sultexceedingour most sanguine expectations.

A Poorly- Paid Preacher.
Rev. Mr. Boring, in the course of a few
good-natured remarks before the New Castle
Presbytery last week, at Elkton, said that his
(the Federalsburg) church had paid him on
account of salary since the 1st of January lust,
only thirty dollars and a barrel of floor. "And
you see I am still alive," concluded this poor
ly-paid preacher, which is the most remark
able fact connected with the story.

Dear Transcript I—Cruel circum
stances prevented me from attending
your quiet fair—a huge disappointment.
It is not too late, I trust, to offer my
sincere congratulations upon its grand
success. And now that your people
are sufficiently cultivated in taste, by
the late exhibition of improved stock,
to appreciate fine blooded cattle, I beg
permission to lead out, for inspection
and criticism, tbc following lot of im
ported Bulls which were first presented
in a letter from "an Irish member of
Parliament to his friend in London,
duriDg the rebellion
* "My Dear Sir: —Having now a lit
tle pence and quietness, I sit down to
inform you of the dreadful bustle and
confusion we are in from these blood
thirsty rebels, most of whom arc, thank
God, killed and dispersed. We are in
a pretty mess; can get Dothiug to eat,
nor wine to drink, except whisky ; and
when we sit down to dinner we are
obliged to keep both hands armed.—
Whilst I write this, I hold a pistol in
each hand and a sword in the other I
concluded in the beginning that this
would be the end of it, and 1 see I
right, for it is not half over yet. At
present there are such goings on that
every thing is at a stand still. I would
have answered your letter a fortnight
ago, but I did not receive it till this
morning. Indeed, hardly a mail ar
rives safe without beiog robbed. No
longer ago than yesterday the coach
with the mails from Dublin was robbed
was
near this town : the bags had been ju
diciously left behind for fear of accident,
and by good luck there was nobody in
it, except two outside passengers who
had nothing for thieves to take. Last
Thursday, notice was given that a gang
of rebels were advancing here under the
French standard ; but they had no col
ors, nor any drums, except bagpipes.—
Immediately every man in the place, in
cluding women and children, ran out to
meet them.
We sood found our force
much too litttle ; and we were far too
near to think of retreating. Death was
in every face ; but to it we went and by
the time half our little party were kill
ed we begun to be all alive agaiD. For
tunately the rebels had no guDS, except
pistols, cutlasses and pikes ; and as we
had plenty of guns'and ammunition, we
put them all to the sword. Not a soul
of them escaped, except some that were
drowned iu an adjacent bay ; and iu a
very short time nothing was to be heard
but silence. Their uniforms were all
different'oolors, but mostly green. Af
ter the action, we went to rummage a
sort of camp which they had left be
hind them. All we found was a few
pikes without beads, a parcel of empty
bottles full of water, and a bundle of
French Commissions filled up with
Irish names^ Troops are now stationed
all around the country, which exactly
squares with my ideas, I have only
time to add that I am in great haste.
Yours truly, _
P- S.—If you do not receive this, of
course it must have been miscarried ; -
therefore I beg you will write and let
me know.

A Substitute for Quinine.
For years, quinine was regarded as the only
specific for malarious diseases, and immense
quantities of the drug were annually consum
ed throughout our western country, more par
ticularly along the river bottoms and ndjoin
iog low lands
With the fall months malaria, in all its va
ried forms, stalks like an epidemic through
the land, and whole districts are prostrated
with chills and fever, the entire population
shaking with ague. Heretofore, quinine was
regularly resorted to ; bnt, while it frequeotly
failed to effect a cure, it invariably deranged
the stomach, pioducing nausea, vertigo and
fugitive pains in the head to such an extent
that months elapsed ere the system recovered
from its effects. These objections to its use
marked, that the introduction of
Mishler's Herb Bitters was hailed as a triumph
in medicine. Infinitely more certain in its
beneficial effects than quinine, it possessed
of the demerits of that drug. Instead of
nauseating, it tones and invigorates the
stomach, and while speedily expelling the
noxious humors, increases the appetite and
facilitates digestions thus rendering the sys
tem stronger, and better fitted to resist the at
tacks of disease. In fact, a judicious use of
Mishler's Herb Bitters at this season of the
year, will prevent the recurrence of this dis
ease, even in those who have never passed an
autumn without it. An experience ef twenty
years proves it to be the greatest anti-periodic
known to medical science.
There are,perhaps, no diseases so subject to
climats changes as affections of the Kidneys.
Hundreds of our farmers, mechanics, and la
boring men, strong and hardy in all other re
spects, suffer continual inconvenience, and oc
casionally excruciating pains in the back and
across the loins ; experience a frequent desire
to pass water, pain during its paffage, and
frequent stoppages in its flow. These are
manifestations resulting from some strain or
heavy lift (perhaps years ago), and aggrava
ted by every change in the weather. Every
slight cold flies direct to this one weak spot,
and unless promptly attended to the disease
becomes chronic, an.d the once strong man a
miserable wreck. Mishler's Herb Bitters is
the only certain remedy for this class of uis
It has a peculiar teDdency to the kid
neys, stimulates them to healthy action, and
removing the cause, prevents the formation of
brick-dust deposits, which, if permitted to
continue, will by cohesion form gravel stone,
necessitating a painful operation for its remo
val. Many of the ingredients entering into
its composition, are universally recognized as
specifics for all complaints of the urinary or

disorders of the Bowels, and affections of the
Throat and Lungs, it is equally certain and
efficacious ; while, as a remedy for the com
plaints peculiar to the female sex, it has ns
equal. Ladies, old and young, married and
single, in every condition of life, will find
this great FEMALE remedy prompt, safe, cer
tain and reliable. The pale, sallow complexion
is replaced by a blooming, healthful counte
nance, and its occasional use enables Nature
to perform her functions regularly and
without inconvenience. Sold only in bottles
by all Druggists and general dealers.

We claim for the DIAMOND STATE SEPARATOR : Simplicity, Durability and Capaci
ty, to do good work in all kinds of grain, and with any kind of power, from 2 or 3-hone
tread, 4 or 6-horse sweep power, or a 4, 5 or 6-bone agricultural engine.
1st. It separates the straw from the grain perfectly. The oscillating movement of the
Corrugated Shakers makes its separating the simplest and most complete of any machine' in
the market. It has no rakes or beaten. It will not throw over or waste grain, on account
of an Improved Straw Agitator. 8 '
2nd. The Riddles are constructed differently from any other machine in the market. The
double motion of the Fan, the manner in which the grain strikes tbe Riddles, makes its'clean
ing gram entirely free from straw, Ac., and perfectly fit for market.
3rd. It has an Adjustable Concave and Feeder Duster,which protects the feeder from dust.
This machiné has only two belts, is easily handled, and runs lighter than any other machine
built, doing the Bame amount of work. It can be run frem either side of the machine, either
by gear or belt. '
These machines are built of the best material, are well finished, strong and durable. When
parties want a machine.to thresh and cleAn from 15 to 50 bushels of wheat per hour accord
ng to their power, we solicit au examination and trial of onr machine, fully believing it fills
all the requirements so long needed by farmers, viz : a machine that can do GOOD WORK
under all circumstances, and sold at a LOW PRICE. This machine is well adapted to
threshing cloverseed. v
