Tnesday evening. President Pnrndl, of Del
aware College, presided.
The opening exercises were conducted and

tor bf the church. President Purnell deliver
ed a very interesting address on how to make
the Institute profitable, and wm followed by
Rev J. H. Johns on th* Model Superinten
dent. Rev. Lafayette Marks based an ad
dress on the subject "Of Whom Should the
Sunday School Consist." He would bring
every body into it.
After the devotional exercises on Tuesday

dress how to keep the class fall ; and Rev. G.
J. Porter showed bow to prepare a bib!* les

Peaah Growers' Meeting.
A call for a meeting of peach growers for
the main purpose of opening new routes for
the immense crop of this year was responded
to lut Saturday afternoon by the principal
growers of this vicinity, representing over
1,000,000 baskets.
Th* meeting was called to order by ap
pointing E W. Lockwood chairman and J.
Thomas Bndd secretary.
Gov. J. P. Cochran thought best for each
ibipper to designate a place of shipment by
the Phila. A Reading and Lehigh Valley rail
roads, and to sign their names to a register so
that no shipments would conflict with each
other. Many agreed to his proposition by
signing. Allentown, Scranton, Williams
port, Sunbury, Wilkesbarre, Reading, Pitts
burg, and HArrisbnrg are among the places
that are to receive extra shipments, taking
from one to ten car loads per day, each.
A tariff wu read by the secretary, showing
the price per car to points in Pennsylvania,
and time ef arrival.
The route to Boston was favored, and many
of the prominent shippers stbted the advan
tages of said route, one being the avoidance
of New York commission men. Boston will
probably receive a part of the finest of the
crop, u it !b believed to pay.
On motion of J. P. Cochran, H N. Willits
and B. T. Biggs were appointed a committee
to go to New York and confer with carters of
the fruit from Jersey City to New York in
view of a reduction of one cent per basket.
It was stated that if this reduction could be
effected, it wonld save the growers at leas)
$40,000, and this it a sum that they rightful
ly claim. The committee was instructed to
call a meeting of carters at some suitable place
in New York city, they to be accompanied by
commission merchants, and to state the enor
mous size of the crop and that it would be al
most necessary to make a reduction of one
cent. Other powers were giveh the commit
tee.
After a discussion on the subject of distri
bution, the meeting adjourned to meet in Mid
dletown today, at 2 o'clock p. m., sharp.
In conversation with E. R. Cochran, Esq.,
your correspondent was informed of a propo
sition of a New York man to the peach grow
ers in this neighborhood. Mr. Ricker, the
•did gentleman, offers to pnt up machinery
and biildings to cost $20,000 and store from

A Stagnlsa Case at Newark.
A BAB WHO HAS BEEN IMPRISONED FOR SEVERAL
YEARS FOR INSANITY DECLARED IN HIS BIGHT
MINO BY A JURY—TRIAL OF THE CASE YESTER
DAY AND FULL PARTICULARS OF THE AFFAIR.
Newark, Del., June 23.
A novel trial, and one of great interest,
took place in the Deer Park Hotel, in this
town, yesterday. It was the eiamination by
a jury de lunatieo inquirendo into the ense of
David McConaughy, who for several years
past bas been treated as a lnnatic, being con
fined at Kirkbride's and the New Castle alms
house, and by many persons it is believed
wrongfnlly. Coercion, it is said, has even
at times been resorted to
TO PROCURE IMPRISONMENT)
and altogether the case is a very strange one.
The following are the particulars, aa given
ont : *
David McConaugbey was the eldest son at
the death of his father, and under the direc
tion of bis grandfather took charge of .the
estate. He freed the property from debt,
which at that time is understood to have
equalled the full value of the property, and
took the same at an appraisement. By years
of bard labor he is said to have accumulated a
large amount of money, and finally sold out
the home place to his two brothers, and also
itarted a third in business in Sussex county,
to whom he also afterwards sold out his
•balk. .. "7^ 7 j j
Being out of business with an income suffi
cient to maintain him, he took to drink,
wbieh, after a long spell,*
OVERTHBKW HIE NERVOUS BYSTEM.
He was then confined in Kirkbride's, where,
with the exception of a short absence on
"french leare,'' he remained for nearly four
year*. A boot two years ago he came home
eery much reduced in body, being a mere
skeleton, and with his nervons system severe
ly sbat'ered. In this condition be called on'
a physician, under whose treatment he began
to improve, and as strength returned be be
gan to ask for a settlement ef accounts
which had remained open daring his confine
- meat at Kirkbride's. It is stated that this
request was denied, bnt persisting in his de
mand, under a plea of his becoming danger
ous, he was by force, the statement goes,
taken to Wilmington withont any warrant of
law and there held several months, and until
be came to the conclusion he
WOULD BE SPIRITED AWAY,
when he left the almsbense of his own accord
and went to Philadelphia, where he consulted
aa old family physician and from him ob
tained a certificate of theeanity of bi« mind.
With this he returned to Wilmington and
consulted a lawyer, obtaining from him a
letter which advised caution on the part of
those who were urging bis imprisonment.
Since then Mr. McConaughy bos been re
siding in Wilmington and Newark. This
Spring be requested the lawyer whom he had
first called on after bis escape to procure a
settlement, but the matter was delayed, and
application was made to Chancellor Saols
bary to have
MB. M'COBAUGHY DECLARED INSANE.
Another lawyer was then employed by
Mr. McC., and yesterday the trial wa( pro
ceeded with, by orders of th» Chancellor, at
tha Deer Park Hotel, as stated. The follow
ing gentlemen comprised the jury : Abraham
Camerson, Smalley, Geo. G. Evans, William
Dean, Levi Ruth, Philip R. Clarkes James M.
Housman, Thomas C. Morrison, Benjamin F.
Townsend, Robert C. Justice, Robert Haw
thorn, Wm. D. Cornog. Wm. G. Wbiteley,
Esq., represented the brothers of Mr. Mc
Cenaughy, who were the applicants for the
trial, and-Wm. C. Spruance, Esq., represent

TBS TRULL.
Miss Susan McConaughy, a sister, wu the
first witness called, who testified to certain
peculiarities in her brother, and believed him
to be of ansoand mind and unfit to take care
of himself or his effects. Miss Rebecca Me
Conaughy also testified to the same things.
Peter Meggitt hod known McConaughy for
a number of years, and as he was not now
what he used to be, after excessive nse of
strong drink, he concluded he wu unfit to
do business. m
Dr. Shortlidge, physician at the almshouse
during Mr. McConaagby's residence tkers,
deposed that in his »pinion all men are insane
on some subject ; that David McConaughy'«
insanity wu in relation to the Bible, and he
believed him to be unfit lo take care of him
self or hi* effects.
Mr*. Emerson, matron at the almshouse,
knew McConaughy, and from the fabt that be
gave her as mnch u a dollar at a time with
which to bay oranges, newspapers, writing
materials, Ac., which he afterwards gave
awsiy to the inmates, she concluded his mind
was not right. '
Jonathan McConaughy stated|the peculiar
ities of bis brother, mentioning particularly
the fact that he wottld walk long distances,
instead of riding.
David McConaughy himself was then called
and testified that his brothers owed him some
$18,000 or $19,000, with a large amount ef
back interest, but the interest, he said, bad
been consumed in bis maintenance at Kirk
bride's and the New Cutle almshouse.
Some further witnesses were examined,
when Mr. Sprnsnce
OPXHED THE CASE FOB THE DEFENCE,
explaining that be would prove that David
McConaughy was sol insane, and if anything
was wrong it was from the use of strong
drink, to the use of which be gave himself
when he thenght he wu being unjustly dealt
with by his fumily, and it had well nigh
wrecked bis nervous system
A large number of witnesses were called,
among them Wilson Marvel, Samuel Miller,
John Atkinson, Seth Stewart, John H. Todd,
ef Wilmington, who bad seen Mr. McCon
aughy just after he brake out of the alms
house, and Dr. Shaw. Letters were also read
to show the sanity of McConaughy. Dr.
Cnrtis bad conversed with McConaughy and
