EDWARD REYNOLDS, Eorroa. ■inDLKTOWR, D«L. SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 11, 1875. _is : - Splendid Peachks.-R. W. Coch ran, Esq., presented us, a few days ago, with a basket of "Pullen's Choice, which were, without exception, some of the finest fruit we have seen yet. They were very large and in excellent condition. For a number of these sent to New York, Mr. Cochran received Ç2.25 per basket, at a time when other peaches brought from 40 to 60 cents per basket, for extras, proof of the advantage of sending good fruit to market. In other times, when didn't know any This is a strong the city consumers better," it might have done to send poor fruit, but that day is evidently past, and those who want to make fruit-growing pay hereafter must take pains to grow, and ship only such fruit as is worth having. The closing of the post office at Lynch's, Kent connty, Md., and the suspension of the mail facilities at that place in the midst of a busy fruit sea-1 Sion when the arrival of the mails are awaited with more anxiety than at any other season of the year, indicates a reckless disregard of the rights and welfare of thc people on the part of the efficers of the Postal Department that is highly censurable, and merits the strongest condemnation If the lie partment had just grounds for suspicion against the postmaster it was all right I and proper to order an investigation to I be made into his affairs, and to cause his removal while that investigation was being made; but the office should have been placed for the time in the hands of another official that the people should not be incommoded. Had tins been done, as it has in scores of other the people of that section of the country would not have been snbjeoted to the great annoyance and inconveni enee which they have been made to suffer by the suspension of the office, and the Postal Department would have . „ „ i j . e ■ .1 been spared the complaints of a justly indignant people. | a cases, American Farmrr. —The September No., jut* weeiveä, is very interesting, treating extensively upon the wheat and other erope, which require prompt atteatioD the present month.

The disastrous result to the days some yet. sent other cents good when any of the Ohio will doubtless deter cargo persons who contemplated shipping by the Pennsylvania; yet if the Steam ship Company will fit up that steamer and offer to carry a cargo of fruit over for the same parties who shipped by the Ohio without farther charge, as has been suggested by some of the interest-1 ed parties, it is more than probable that the experiment will be tried again. This would be but an act of simple jus tice on the part of that company if it be true that the failure was caused by negligence on their part.

Dear Sir : We invite your attention to onr Aina ican Evaporator for caring all kinds of frnits, berries and vegetables. This machine com biaes, by a philosophical and practical rangement, currents of heated air in the most advantageous manner, altogether evading the old style of straining and cooking all the frnit in tbe trays above while drying one, (the lower tray,) which heretofore has so impaired the color, flavor, and market value of dried fruits. The ar AMERICAN EVAPORATOR, By aa entirely new plan, almost instantly dries the cat surface, preventing oxidation, thns securing the best color, retaining the flavor, glucose or frnit sogar, inasmuch as the ent surface is never subjected to the steam or vapor thrown off by subsequently inserted trays. Oor machine secures tbe best possible and really tbe only scientific application of dry heat to all the trays yet introduced in the history of drying frnits. This fact is proved by the great capacity per square foot of our evaporating surface. Machines in three sizes ready for shipment. Prices : $50, $75 and $ 200 . The machines can be seen in operation daily at Warwick, Md., and Middletown, Del., daring the entire season. Address all orders, inquiries, Ac., to 1st F £s, AMOS STOÜFFER, Middletown, Del.
