Fatal Coal OU Accident.
A colored girl, who lived in a tenant house
on tbe farm of Mr. G. W. Lockwood, near
Warwick, was so severely burned by her
clothes taking fire from coal oil on Friday of

She attempted to kindle a fire by pouring oil
over tho wood : Hence the accident.

Cannery Burned.
The large Canning Establishment of Hof
fecker A Bro., of Smyrna, wag entirely des
troyed by fire, with most of its contents, on
Tuesday night. It was a large three-story
frame structure with back buildings. The
fire broke ont about half-past eleven. Its
origin »unknown. The loss is quite heavy
being estimated at from $7,006 to $10,000.
The building was insured for $900, but the
stock on hand was quite heavy consisting of
80,000 cans and material for 2000 more.
Some $3000 worth of canned tomatoes were
saved ; also 3000 or 4000 peacb baskets.
Depredatory Peach Plucks.
On Wednesday night a gang of some sixty
"peach plucks" took possession of a lot of
empty cars at the Delaware Junction, near
Wilmington, and as a luckless traveller was
passing with a full valise they pounced upon
him and robbed him of his baggage. The R.
R. officials then notified the Wilmington po
lice, who went ont and arrested the whole
gang and carried them to Wilmington
charge of highway robbery. The man who
was robbed, however, did not put in an ap
pearance and they were discharged. [What
dots onr correspondent, " Peach Pluck,"
think of that?]
A Colonel In Trouble.
A few weeks ago a young gentleman of this
county, one of the Aids dc Camp of his Ex
cellency the Governor of Delaware, went to
call upon a friend in Kent county, Md. He
drove into the yard, alighted from his carriage
and was in the act of opening a gate where
he was espied by a savage dog which at once
made a dash for him. The Colonel, who in
a war with Jersey over the fishery difficulties
would not shrink from the cannon's mouth,
seeing this dire enemy approach, thought not
of fight but only of flight, and hastily look
ing for a place of refuge, betook himself to
the gate post, which he climbed with lightning
rapidity. This elevated perch afforded him
a temporary relief from his foe, who imme
diately settled into a state of siege. The
Colonel was now in a bad predicament. His
horse, which he had not hitched, was loose,
and might go away, and he dare not get
down to tie him ; be might not be discovered
by the inmates of the house, and be compelled
U lodge on that poet all night. What to do
he did not know. Finally, however—as
fortune always favors the brave—two little
girl* made their appearance ; called off the
"dorg" and tbe Colonel was happy, though
a little white. The Colonel says he wont for
get, very soon again, the warning, "Beware
t the Dog."

BY ova local RRPORTEH•
Joseph M. Barr, Esq., has sold his drug
store in this town to Mr. Clarence Anderson,
of Philadelphia, and the new proprietor has
taken charge.
The M. E. Sunday School of this town will
probably go to Bombay Hook on their annual
pic-nic. this year. They expect to go in a
week or two, and, of course, the occasion will
be a pleasant one.
The item of a rumored marriage *l)icb I
wrote last week, excited a great deal of in
quiry and surmise. They don't know who it
is ; so, dear reader, if it is you, please have it
published, and thus stop the question : "Docs
it mean us."
As an evidence of the amount of fruit Mr.
Sellers intends drying this season, it may be
said that he has already engaged night and
day forces to the number of one hundred and
fifty, fifty-four of whom are girls and come
from Philadelphia. The introduction ef a
new' and different evaporator makes the large
increase in workmen necessary.
The question of "How's your peaches" has
died and one been substituted for the past few
days, and you can hear it on all sides. Since
the fact became known that no Blackbird
camp meeting would be held this year, all
camp goers have made arrangements to visit
Red Lion. Hence the incessant demand of
"Are you going to camp, Sunday."
I was told rather devoutly and backwardly
last Tuesday that the canse of the recent cold
weather was in the building of the Refriger
ator, and my informant wishes to know what
point the thermometer will reach when it is
completed. My idea is that it be low enough
to keep "peach plucks" from the vicinity and
to freeze peaches good enough to stand ship
ment and sale in the cities, i. e., in the build
ing.
The Delaware Railroad Company, te meet
the demand upon it for extra freight trans
portation by this year's crop of fruit, is build
ing an additional track between Middletown
and Armstrong's. The laying of rails has
been commenced since tbe grading was com
pleted, and the track will be ready for trains
in a few days. Nothing but fruit will be al
lowed to pass over tbe new track, and it is an
addition that may he the means of avoiding a
serious cellisioa this summer.
On Saturday night the Square wa3 the
scene of a disgraceful and dangerous fight
among drunken or frenzied negroes. One of
them was struck, during the fight, over the
head three successive blows with a large stick,
and his head was badly hurt. Just as this
was stopped, same one threw a stone and
struck a negro boy, cansing him to jump and
scream from pain for a long time. These
fights originate among the negroes, and com
mence when they have imbided too freely of
whiskey and as soon as the stores close. If
there is a remedy, then Middletown sadly
needs it.
This is rather a peculiar season to support
tbe late Confederate President, but a man
living with Benjamin Armstrong, near A>
strong's, indulged in some very loud hur
rahs for Jeff. Davis last Thursday, and on
being remonstrated with for his boisterous
ness be picked up a large stone and was going
to hit the proprietor of the National Hotel,
who had struck him with a whip over the
faee and eyes. He was stopped by another
gentleman near at tbe time, although be con
tinued to abuse the landlord. Tbe result of
that abuse was that he got a pretty complete
thrashing after which he left towa, regretting,
perhaps, his short visit. He was intoxicated.
Work on the Refrigerater has progressed as
much as could bo expected during this change
able weather. The weather-boarding is now
complete and tbe roofing nearly done. The
firm will "fillin'' with cat-tails and charcoal,
and already have four carloads at the depot.
Their ice will be down on Monday next. A
side track to the building has been built by
the Delaware Railroad, and is in working
order. A train was backing some cars on it
on Tuesday, when they were sent too swift
and struck the scaffolding that projected over
the track and sent it crashing to the ground,
scaring the workmen three stories above so
badly that tbty clung to the side-board for
their lives. No one was injured, but there
was a general scare.
A
L
Peach Growers' Convention.
The interest in tbe Middletown Peach Con
ventions having increased to such an extent
that the office of J. T. Budd, where they
have hitherto been held, would no longer ac
commodate them, tbe meeting on Saturday
last was held in the capacious store-room in
the Town Hall formerly occupied by Mr. G.
W. W. Naudain, with a very large attend
ance. Most of the heavy shippers of this
viciaity, as well as some from Smyrna, and
Cecil and Kent counties, Maryland, were pre
sent. Tbe attendance of commission mer
chants from Western cities was also a notice
is
to be the greatest peach orchard of the world
and, for this season, about the only section of
the United States that can be said to bave a
crop, and with pardonable pride we may add,
that Middletown will be the most important
peach shipping depot in the world, this
season.
The meeting was organized by the selection
of Wm. Green as Chairman, and J. T. Budd,
as Secretary. After the reading and adoption
of the minutes of the last meeting, Mr.
Townsend, from the Committee on Steamship
Transportation made a report, showing that
he had visited and conferred with the officers
of the American Steamship Company, of Phil
adelphia, in regard to the shipment of peaches
to Europe. The company had agreed to fit
up a refrigerator compartment which would
hold from 2500 to 3000 crates of fruit ; that
the price per crate would be $1.00, unless the
growers would charter the compartment
which they could de for $2000. Mr. T. urged
the growers to send only good fruit as the
success of the experiment would depend upon
their so doing. He argued strongly in favor
of this project believiug that it woBld suc
ceed, and be ef vast advantage to the peach
growers of the Peninsula for ail time to come.
He suggested the 26th of August os a proper
lime for tbe commencement of tbe enterprise
as the Old Mixons would probnbly be ripe at
that time.
In reply to a question of Mr. R. H. Cum
mins, Mr. Townsend said the Steamship Com
pany would examine plans and fit the com
partment np at their own expense, after the
best plan submitted to them. On motion of
Henry Clayton, the report was accepted and
committee continued.
Tbe report of the Committee on Railroad
Transportation being called for, Mr. Willits
reported that Major B T. Biggs, the chair
man, who was absent, had promised to see
Mr. Sharp, ef the B. A O. R. R. Mr. Clayton
presented a telegram from Mr. Sharp to Mr.
Biggs in which the former said he could not
move trains at other hours than 6 A. M. and
10 P. M. Tbe Secretary stated that said tele
gram was received from Mr. Sharp and that
the latter was in New York on Wednesday,
and Mr. Biggs having selected that day, no
conference between the two was held.
Mr. S. C. Biggs stated that on Thursday
evening last, A. C. Gray, Bsq., President of
able feature, proving tbe value of the peach
crop to all sections of the country, and estab
lishing the fact that our Peninsula may claim
the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal Company,
had received a proposition from a gentleman
named KullocU, offering to erect a large re
frigerator building capable of holding 1}
millions of baskets ef fruit and asking for ths
lease of a plat of ground near Delaware City,
•n tbs line of the canal, for the purpose.
Mr. Spencer, a representative of the Balti
more A Ohio R. R., being present, was in
vited to state to the meeting the proposition)
of bis road in regard to the transportation of
fruit.
Mr. S. stated that he was here to represent
Mr. Sharp, master of transportation, and tft
correct erroneous impressions current as to
the policy and intentions of the B. A 0. Road.
He guaranteed that the company would move
a train of six or more cars at any time, with
in an hour after they were received, and that
they would not confine their time of starting
to 6 A. M. and 10 P. M., but that those hours
had been named only as being more con
venient.
Mr. Townsend arose to make a statement
on the part of the Pennsylvania Central R. R.
Company, and proceeded to give rates via
that road, and the Philadelphia k Reading
Road ; he also read letters and telegrams from
Mr. Cassett, of the Penn. R. R., stating that
company would run trains of six cars or more
at any hour they may be received, and claim
ed that it was to the interest of the growers
to ship by that road on account of the differ
ence of time taken by the P., W. k B. R. R.
to deliver cars to the two roads, vis:—six
hours to Baltimore and three to Philadelphia.
A sharp debate, participated in by Messrs.
Townsend, R. H. Cummins, E. R. Cochran
and others, on the respective merits of the
two great companies follewed.
After a long discussion the Committee on
Transportation were, on motion, continued.
The schedule, or time table, of the Dela
ware R. R. for Ginn's Station, was presented
and read.
R. H. Cummins moved the appointment of
a Committee of Three to wait upon the B. k
O. R. R. Co., and ebtain a schedule of tisse
and rates from all stations on the Delaware
R. R. for trains to points West, via their line.
Discussed by Messrs. Townsend, Cummins,
R. T. Cochran and H. N. Willits, and adopt
ed. Committee appointed, Messrs. Cummins,
R. T. Cochran and E. R Cochran.
A letter, from Bennett k Co., of New York
was read stating that a peach train for Boston
would start on Tuesday, 10th inst., via Hud
son river—starting at neon and arriving at
4 o'clock next morning.
The following resolution was read and
adopted :
Revolved , That the P. W. k B., and Penn.,
railroad companies be requested to furnish
peach tickets, as was done in 1871, at half
rates, to the Peach growers and their em
ployees, traveling on peach business, and
that all other roads doing a similar traffic be
requested to give like rates between all neces
sary points.
The Secretary was requested to send c6pies
of the resolution ta all the railroad eornpan
ies.
Letters from commission merchants of vari
ous cities were read.
On motion the convention adjourned to
Saturday Aug. 7th, (to-day.)
Maryland Affairs.
Henry Dyer, colored, for the last year or
two residing in abont Queenstown, Queen
Anne's county, was discovered lying in the
public streets of the village last Sunday morn
ing suffering from the effects of being badly
beaten and braised, and all the information
that be could intelligently impart was that
'white man did it.' He was removed to a house
near by, where he received medical attention.
He died Monday morning about ten o'clock.
A post-mortem examination showed that one
or two of his ribs were broken and his bowels
horribly blackened and braised, the result of
kicking,stamping and pounding. An inquest
was held,and evidence produced that Charley
Brandolph had confessed that he had killed
him in self-defence. The jury r endered a ver
dict that he came to bis death by injuries in
flicted by a Mr. Charles Brandolph, who left
for parts unknown
The corner-stone of a new Methodist Episco

Mr. John A. Tribbitt has sold his farm near
Gilpin's Point, in the fourth election district
of Caroline county, containing 100 acres, to

During the Fever season of last month, the
stock of Ayer's Ague Cure in the Old North
State became exhausted, and before a supply
could be received from Lowell, the suffering
from chills and fever become fearful. A few
parties were so fortunate as to have it on
hand, and «n Iredell Couniy, the druggists
eked out their slender stocks by selling doses
—a spoonful each—for a dollar. Many paid
ten dollars for a bottle, when the regular price
is but one, and thought themselves favored at
that, so valuable are the curative properties
of this preparation, which not only expels the
poison from the system, but leaves tho patient
with unimpaired health and vigor .—Raleigh

Adjustable Peach Assorter.
T».
With the above machine, a man with the assistance of two good hoys can easily call 1000
baskets of peaches per day, taking ont the leaves, soft and specked fruit, and assort the
ance into three sizes (cullinga, .primes, and extras, ) far more accurately than It can he done
by hand; with an increased force, the capacity of tho machine is (comparative^speaking)
unlimited. Bat as the reputation of the first Assorter was fully sustained by those in use
season, I merely wish to state that they will be
BUILT UPON ORDERS ONLY,
and those who may favor me with their orders will bave until the 25th of May to countermand
the same, should the fruit be injured in the meantime. For terms please see circular. The
price therin named is the result of close figuring, hosed upon what they cost me to have them
buiU by the hundred, and as the probability is that so many will not be needed hereafter,
will be to the growers' interest to secure them this season.
