EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 7, 1875. The Delaware Farmer. —This is the name of a neat little four column paper, the first number of which has just boen issued, published at Wilming ton, in the interest of tho Grangers, under the editorial management of Mrs T. F. Dilworth, of Port Penn. We received a very interesting com munication a few days ago, giving historical account of the early settle ment, and ownership, of Bohemia Man or, which wo would like very much to publish, bnt unfortunately the author neglected to send us his (or her) name, which, under the established rules of all printing offices, debars its publica tion. If the author will send us his name we will be pleased to publish his communication. an Peach Trains. —Arrangements for shipment of peaches West «were con cluded by the officials of the Philadel phia, Wilmington & Baltimore and the Baltimore & Ohio Ti. R. on Thursday last, and shippers can load to a late hour and roach the western cities at early market hours. Quit* a largo delegation of western commission houses arc represented here, and doubtless our growers will have ' every facility and inducement to venture west largely. Death or General Pickett. —Gen. George E. Pickett, of tho late confeder ate army, died at Norfolk, Va., last Saturday at the age of fifty years. Gen. Pickett was one of the best and most distinguished officers of the confederate servioe. He was a graduate of West Point, and went into the service of his native State at the beginning of the war and served with difftinction till its close, having been in nearly every principal contest in Virginia, and won consider able renown in the battles of Freder icksburg, Manassas, Antietam, (Md.,) Gettysburg, (Pa.,) and the seven days fight around Richmond. The Great Scandal. —The jury having failed to come to an agreement as to the guilt or innocence of Honry Ward Beecher, in the late trial; the oounsel of Theodore Tilton have served a formal notice upon Beecher's counsel that they had demanded a new trial and that tho case would be brought up at the September term of court. Tilton's counsel claim to have evidence that will prove tho guilt of Beecher beyond cavil. They also say that the trial will not, or need not, last over ten days or two weeks at furthcrcst. Be that as it may the country is to be again afflicted with Beecher, Tilton, Bowen, Moulton, Bes sie Turner and the filth and trash of that disgusting trial. New Daily Paper. -Messrs. O'Byrne Brothers, of Wilmington, have pur chased the appliances and intend, very shortly (rumor says next Monday week) to begin the publication of a morning daily paper in that city to be called tbe Morning Herald. The management of the Herald will be in the hands of a Mr. Crutchfield, an experienced jour nalist originally from Virginia, but more recently of Reading, Pa., assisted, of course, in the editorial department by John O'Byrne, Esq. Tho Messrs. O'Byrne have our most hearty wishes for abundant success in their new enterprise. It is to be hoped that Wilmington will now have a live Democratic paper. a To the Gazette.— We did not ob jeet to your publishing a communica-. tion in defence of tbe Governor, and had the article in question been signed by the writer, we could not have ob jected to its publication, nor yet, had the writer confined himself to answer ing the criticisms of the Advertiser's correspondent. What we objeoted to was that an anonymous communication assailing individuale by name, for . causer should ho published. We may be the only individual in the county who would object to such publications, but we generally adhere to such a rule no in ourselves, and when anonymous letters, making personal attacks upon others are brought to our office the authors requested "to go elsewhere." , are \ Boston Commission House.— Among our now advertisements this will be found the card of Messrs. J. W. & G. H. Merritt, commission mer chants of Boston, to which we invite the attention of fruit shippers. Mr. J. W. Merritt, of this firm, visited this neighborhood in the early part of this week for the purpose of soliciting signments of poaches and other fruits. Tho House is well recommended and its standing quoted high in the Mer cantile Reporters, as responsible financially. Mr. Merritt succeeded in making, arrangements to have peaches shipped to them daily from Ginn's sta tion, on the Delaware R. R., and ap pointed Mr. Richard L. Naudain their agent to represent them at that place, • who will, doubtless, give any further information to persons desirous of ship, ping frait to these gentlemen. CniCAOO Merchants. —Growers who purpose shipping fruit to Chicago are invited to read the advertisement of Meurs. S- B. Chase & Co., of that city. These gentleman offer oxcellent mornmg C0B men, of facilities for tbe sale of fruit in tbcit city. They present references and en dorsements of the highest and best iiArrcter for resposibility, integrity and business capacity. As the peach crtfp is almost a complete failure in the WeBt, fruit sent to those cites will doubtless command very high and re munerative prices, and stands at the fore-front in other branch es of business it is fair to presume that she will prove an excellent market, also, for the salo of the Peninsula's lus cious productions. Persons who con template making the experiment ef ship ping to the West, may find it to their advantage to correspond with Messrs. S. B. Chase & Co. c Chicago There are thousands of men out of employment in this city who can find work at fair prices in tho peaoh-grow ing regions. Thero is an immense amount of labor to be performed there, It has already commenced and will con tinue for a month. We need not ad vise any particular point at which to strike. The entire peninsula opens its arms and invites them t o come. — Phil adelphia Chronicle. _ , , , T , , Great goodness, man! You dont know what you are talking about ! Why this peninsula is over-run with tramps and vagabonds from Philadel , ■ ... „„„ r ,,„ ,_ phia and other cities now. Its tramp, r r tramp, tramp, everywhere. Somo of them will work and are useful, but the majority of them are worthless wretches to whom any intention or desire to labor is as foreign as cleanliness. Enlarge your penitentiaries and work-houses and keep these wretches at home. Yet if a number of sober, industrious work men, whom tho dullness of trade has thrown out of employment, should come here willing and anxious to work, there is no doubt but that they could find plenty to do, and the fruit-growers would be glad of their assistance. We have promptly on our table the American Farmer, for August, publish ed at Baltimore by Sam'l Sands & Son, a peculiarly interesting number, con taining many articles useful to the farmer at the present season. Among these we notice a series of experiments at the Pennsylvania Experimental Farm on plowing and fertilizing the wheat crop; an able paper on Irrigation, by Mr. Faul, the engineer at Druid Hill Park ; another on Hedges, by Mr. W. £>. Breckcnridge, and many others of great value. The action of the Trus tees in the recent attempted reorganiza tion of the Maryland Agricultural Col lege is adversely commented on. Tbe editors state, on the authority of Prof. Uhler, of the Peabody Institute, tffat au enemy of the potato beetle is show ing itself in numbers, destroying the larvæ and eggs of that plague. A great variety of other matters agricul tural and horticultural is given, and we advise those wishing to subscribe to a first-rate agricultural paper, to scud to the publishers for a specimen No. The subscription is $1.60 a year' or $1.10 in clnbs of five or more. Death of Ex-President Johnson, Andrew Johnson,ex-Prcsident of the United States and U. S. Senator from Tennessee, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Brown, in Carter coun ty, East Tennessee, last Saturday morn ing. He was stricken with paralysis on the previous Wednesday, and nevor spoke afterward. Mr. Johnson was born in Raleigh, N. C., on the 29th of December, 1808, and was therefore about 67 years old at the time of his death. He was one of the most remarkable men this country ever produced, and the history of his career in life reads more like a novel romance than a reality. His father dying when ho was but four years of age, be was left to the charge of bis mother, who was too poor to give him the ordinary opportunities for a com mon school education. At an early age youDg Johnson was apprenticed to a tailor, and, having through the kind assistance of a friend learned the let ters and the first rudiments of education, he spent his leisure moments in pursu ing his studies. It is said that he often sat while working at his trade with a book in front of Jüm, «nlling such in formation as he could from its psges. In 1826 he removed to Greenville,Ten nessee, where, two years afterward, he married an accomplished lady, to whose teaching he owed much of his success in life He began his political course in 1828, by being chosen Alderman of Grcenftlle. Having served in this position three consecutive terms with great credit to himself, he was, in 1830, elected Mayor. We next see him, in 1835, a member of the Tennesee Legis lature. Again, in 1841, a itate sena tor. . In 1843 a member of Congress ; re-eleeted in 1845-47-49 and 51. In 1853 he was chosen Governor, re choseu in 1855 and elected to the United States Senate in 1857. In 1862 he was appointed, by President Linooln, Provisional Governor of Tennessee, and in 1864 he was elected Vioe-Presi is it ed It A its dent of the United States, and in the following year, on the death of Mr. Lincoln,he succeeded to the Presidency. While in this office he succeeded in awakening tbe ire of Congress and a bill of impeachment was brought against him, bnt it failed for tbe want of the necessary tiro-thirds vote in its favor. Retiring to bis native State, at the ex piration of his Presidential term, he began a contest for election to the United States Senate to whieh he was chosen on the 22d of Maroh 1875, be ing a member of that body at tbe time of his death. (Communicates.) They. Weren't Afraid—Wot They. A few evenings since a number of young men, assembled in a neighbor ing bar-room, were boasting in rather a loud tono of their bravery, declaring what they would do in case they were attacked by "peach plucks," highway men, or any other ku-klux, along the road. Hearing these valiant boastings, several lookers on determined .to'test their sincerity. Consequently, letting a companion of the boasters into the secret, they hurried away and stationed themselves, disguised, along the road and awaited the coming of the men who "weren't afraid, approached the former rushod upon them, seized their horse, and demanded their money. The poor fellows thought they had fallen into the hands of Dick Turpin or Sixteen String Jack, for cer tain, and that their time had come, and when the one who was into the secret As the latter was pulled from the carriage and beaten (•) ( as they thought) nearly to death, they began to think it was all up with them. Then, forgetful of their vain boastings, they hallooed mnider ! thieves ! &o , like good fellows, and seeing an opportunity to escape they —put whip to their horse and fled up the road at the top of his speed, leaving their companion to the meroy of their a8gai i ants r When they bad reached a place of safety, they told of the terrible assault l* a< l been made upon them, but when the truth leaked out, they hadn't , . ml , ,,, J , much to say. They don t brag as much now as t h ey jid. K. K. K. Far the Transcript. Mr. Editor: —In your last issue I found your annual tirade against the poor Peach Pluck How could we pos sibly get our immense crop of peaches picked without them? We imported Swedes at a heavy cost and nearly all of them ran away before the time was up for which they agreed to work to pay their passage. And as to the darkey, how much de pendence is thero in him? Almost none ! What do they care about their contracts? During the greatest pres sure of work they will stop and go to a camp'or pic-nic. Could the cotton plant er have such an influx of labor daring picking season, he could safely grow fifty per cent, more cotton. Just let those poor fellows forsake us for one season, when we have a crop on hand, and then we will know their vaine. They should be treated kindly. Many of them are cultivated and refined. Who knows what tho future may have in store for us ? We may next year be PsAcn Pluck. a Andrew Johnson's Probable Suc cessor.— It is thought in Tennessee that the Governor will appoint Gen. Wm B. Bate to the seat of the late Andrew Johnson in the Senate. Gen. Bate was a close competitor of Mr. Johnson, the latter winning only by a very small vote. He was a confederate officer, but that he has become fully re conciled to tbe situation is evident from the letter which he wrote to a recent meeting of Southern soldiers: "We have not at any time lost sight of the fact that this is our conntry, and the only one in which we bave a special in terest ; that its glory is our glory, its Bhame is our shame, and that it is both patriotic and manly for us to vie with our late adversaries, in a generous way, in elevating, strengthening and ennobling it." . Advice for Dull Times.— Adver tising is a great bother. It only brings a lot of folks to your place of business. If they want you let them hunt you up. Then if you get your Dame in the paper you will be bored with drum mers and people from the country will call on you and you will have to show them goods, and like enough have to do up bundles for them, which will ex haust your stock so much that you will be obliged to buy more goods, which is a great trouble. If you advertise, too, it gives your place a reputation abroad ; folks will go there and crowd you, and make it too lively. If you don't want to do anything, keep as still as you can .—New Fork Commercial Advcrtis A by 'er. General News. At an early hour Wednesday morn ing fire was discovered in the pantry of the New York Hotel, on Broadway. When the alarm was given it caqfed the wildest excitement among the guests, many of whom snatched up whatever came nearest to hand, and rushed down stairs through the blinding smoke. The officers say it was hard work to rouse some of the guests, who persisted in believing there was nothing the mat ter.
