Negroes Rampant and Defiant,
On Saturday night last, a number of ne
groes stationed themselves on the St. Anne's
road a little below Middletown, to await tbe
approach of some white men, who worked
for Mr. R. R. Cochran, and as the latter came
near the negroes attacked and badly beat one
of them, a young man of about 18 or 20 yea«
old, catting his head and inflicting a wound
from which he bled profusely. Why this
attack was made on this particular individual
is not known, though it is said that the
groes had a grudge against him from
cause. The injured man's name we did not
ascertain though he belonged to the order of
''Peach Pluck."
Hearing of this outrage by the negroes
special policeman Thomas Barris summoned
a posse of citizens and went down the road
to quell the disturbance. Coming up to tbe
negroes be attempted «o arrest a fellow named
Ham Sheppard, tbe leader of tbe gang, but
tbe negro drew a pistol and defied the officer,
saying "Arrest and be damned." The upshot
ef it was tbe negro was not arrested and the
officer returned to town without him.

The circus had two good audiences on
Monday afternoon and evening.
The news obtained from the doings of
tramps has been very extensive during the
past month.
The proprietors of our hotels are busy now
keeping their pavements clear of the inevita
ble drnnk—a tramp. They often resort to
carriage whips.
Accident .—A very painful accident occurred
at Sellers' drying house on Tuesday last A
Miss Ireland, of Odessa, was paring peaches
when the knife slipped and, being a very
sharp one, cut a deep gash in the hand.
Much pain followed, and bandages were ap
plied, after which the young lady went home.
The mixed train on the Delaware Railroad
did not leave Middletown until 11 o'clock
last Saturday night, and made Wilmington
depot at 3 o'clock Sunday morning. At this
time an engine was standing across French
street and soon commenced backing. There
was a brakeman standing on the track two
yards back of the engine with his back turned
to it, talking to some one near. The con
ductor of the mixed train commenced shout
ing for him to get off the track, but he
scarcely did so in time to save bis life or a
serious accident. Those who saw him were
greatly excited for a moment or two, for they
expected to see the man crushed under the
wheels of the "tender."

Arretted .—Another disturbance was occa
sioned at Delmarvia drying house on Thurs
day, by a trio of tramps, one of whom was
more forward than the rest. In making an
assault on one of the day bosses, the fellow
was struck once or twice just in time to save
the boss an awfnl blow that might have proven
serious. It is alleged that the tramp went in
the building and interfered with those work
ing. On being remonstrated with, he com
menced cursing the girls at a fearful rate,
frightening them badly. The superintendent
ordered him out, and his refusing to go caused
the striking. After leaving the place Officer
Heaid arrested the "prominent," and after a
hearing before Esquire Walker, he was fined
$10 and costs, and pnt iu the cells.
The dreut. — W. W. Cole's New York and
New Orleans Exposition gave two exhibitions
on Monday last, as per previous announce
ment. The day was for the most part clear,
bnt a small sprinkle of rain cangbt the after
noon attendance. The balloon ascension
took place at 5 o'clock, and was a very good
one of the kind. The animals exhibited were
very fine, and the cages were kept very clean,
more so than any ever in this town. Every
person present at either of the circus per
formances speaks very highly of them ; and
particularly of the spring-board exercise,
during which a double somersault was made
over twenty-four horses. Taking everything
into close consideration, Cole's show is a good
one, and we are glad that one bas visited
Middletown worthy the mention through
your columns.
Spoon Thief .—When a tramp appeals to the
kindness of our citizens for bread be gener
ally gets it. On Wednesday one of the in
dividuals was begging, and a gentleman took
him to Smith's restaurant and gave him
something to eat. After getting through
with the meal, the young man pocketed one
of the silver teaspoons and left. He was sub
sequently arrested and placed in the cells un
til the arrival home of Mr. Smith, when he
eras taken before that gentleman and repri
manded which caused him to cry freely and
beg forgiveness, and this being granted, he
was also given a good breakfast and allowed
to leave. He is respectably connected in
Patterson, N. J., and probably did this act
while ander the influence of liqnor. He has
been in the employ of Mr. E. R. Cochran for
sometime, but on Monday got off on a "ben
der," hence the resalt.
Drying Boute Burned .—Numeroas kinds of
drying houses have been in the Middletown
market this season, and some of them are
rather beneficial to the peach grower, for
with one he can prepare his small or soft
fruit to sell to an advantage, where otherwise
. would be thrown aside. Among the pur
chasers.of these machines was Mr. E. R.
Rchran, who had one erected io his orchard
lir town and put in charge of A. T. Brad
■. Everything progressed finely up to
'Ksday last, and no complaints were given
^the quality of drying the machine bad
Mo doing.- In the afternoon of that day
tel frames cangbt fire, suddenly, and despite
tiefefforts of Mr. Bradley, the dryer burned
in fifteen minutes, entailing a loss to
Mr. Cochran of $150.00. About six or seven
frames were saved from the flames. The
trdh near the dryer are badly scorched and
probably die.

É Entered .—On Thursday afternoon a
ing attempt was made to rob tha
d confectionery store of C. C. Foster,
street, in this town. Mr. Foster's
r, Miss Maggie, had left the store and
Anderson's drug store, whence she
in five minutes, and as she opened
r, a man was in the act of taking
tbe «bitty-drawer. He became frightened,
ran ted jumped ont of tbe back window and
«seabed without any booty. Tbe drawer
con&ined $500 in cash, and wonld have
beeaa good "steal." Tbe thief watched an
.. unity and when the store was closed
'h e around in Mr. Penington's yard,
op
pnt hig hand through a broken pane of glass
and drew ont a nail that secured tbe window.
After this was accomplished he bad but to
step U and "enjoy the beanties of the scene."
No ariests have been made, but one fellow is
held it suspicion.
Peathet. —The market has been greatly im
proved within the past week, and prices are
accordingly higher. In Chicago fruit is
bringiig from $2.00 to $3.00 per crate, and
in Cincinnati $2.00 to $2.50. New York
prices have advanced at least 20 cents on the
basket A gentleman, who is well informed
on this subject, gives his opinion that the
crop Till average from 39 to 40 cents per
basket clear of freight and commission. This
would pnt on tbe Peninsula $3,200,000 if the
estima.ed 8,900,000 baskets are shipped.
Howevsr, should the prices reach an average
of 35 cents, there wonld remain in the bands
of grovers and shippers a sufficient amount
of money, even after costs for picking are
deducted. So it will be seen that' no great
cause exists for tbe numerous and extended
complaints that have been made. The late
varieties will pay far better than tbe earlier
ones, as is evidenced by the increase in prices
iu the New York aod Western markets.
"All's well that ends well."
Mort ef Them .—On Saturday night last, a
man came op to tbe writer, while at Middle
town dspot, very much excited, stating that
a party of Irishmen were after him to rob
him, and asked to be accompanied to the
passenger car, as he wished to elude them.
The last seen of him he was safe in Wilming
ton. On Thursday, a similar case occurred
in town. An old man rushed into S. R.
Stephens A Co's store aod approaching Mr.
M. L. Hardcastle, shouted, "For God's sake,
Mister, take my money ; they are after me to
steil it 1" Ten dollars was banded to tbe
gentleman for safe keeping, and the man left
j the store, followed by his two "friends."
1 During the former part of this week an indi
vidual "of the tramp persuasion paraded the
town with a very large butcher-knife in his
band, saying nothing but causing considera
ble uneasiness to those who met him. We
mention these to show their characteristics,
which are often dangerous.
Loti It .—Before the circus had opened on
Monday, Mr. James Hurtt, of Kent county,
Md , was in the museum watching a game at
cards. One of the men spoke to Mr. Hnrtt
concerning the game, when that gentleman
remarked that it was a swindle, whereupon
he was told that he had no money, or if be
had he was afraid to show it. Mr. Hurtt felt
indignant, and immediately drew from his
pocket and counted out the sum of $200.00
and commenced exhibiting it to his chal
lenged friend, bnt a moment had scarcely
elapsed when the money was snatched from
his hand. All attempts to catch the thief
were unsuccessful, as he eluded everyone in
his search. I also hear that a Mr. King lost
$50 betting on the same game, and that be
made attempt to recover it with same result
as in the case of Mr. Hurtt. We would ad
vise all towns in which this "museum" ap

The Refrigerator. —Much has been said con
cerning this building, and I will add to it
some facts gleaned from a conversation with
one of the Messrs. Riker. On Sunday last 10
cars of ice were received from Wilmington
and were stowed in the building. The de
sired temperature has been reached, and the
working goes on very satisfactory Up to
Wednesday evening, it was estimated that
10,000 baskets bad been stowed. The report
that probably the early varieties that were
pnt in would he sold is untroe, for the build

It is supposed that about 40,000 baskets will

and the fruit is being rapidly received. I
a
process that the peaches have to go through
have previously stated that the firm were
assuming all risk in the peaches received, but
they do not. The grower makes a deposit
and agrees for one-half the net profits of it
when sold next winter. This is done by a
blank receipt on which such agreement is
printed. Farmers are quite anxious to put
their fruit iu the refrigerator since it has
been demonstrated by the Ohto't cargo that it
can be kept through such a process.
L.
Suspension of a Postofllee.
The postoffice at Lynch's, Kent county,
Md., has been temporarily closed and the
postmaster suspended. The cause is a charge
of some irregularity in the accounts of the
office. By the closing of the office very great
inconvenience is caused to the people of that
vicinity who depended entirely upon it for
their mail facilities. The more especially is
this inconvenience felt by the peach growers
during the shipping season. To them it is
not only a matter of annoyance and incon
venience, but also of pecuniary loss. It is 'to
be hoped that the matter will soon be settled
and the office re established.
Terrible Accident to a Child.
On Wednesday evening week, a farmer
named Ash, living near Iron Hill, in this
county, on coming home from the field, tam
ed a harrow with which he had been working
on its edge against a fence. In a little while
afterwards, Edith, a little three year old
daughter of Mr. Ash, climbed up on the har
row in her endeavors to reach something
npon one of the upper teeth, when the har
row tilted over hearing the little girl to the
earth and one of the teeth entering her head.
Every thing possible was done for the little
sufferer, but no hopes were entertained of her
recovery.— Commercial.
Failure of «he Peach Shipment to
Europe.
A telegram to Samuel Townsend, Esq.,
from Peter Wright f Sons, Agents of the
American Steamship Company, received on
Tuesday, announced that the peaches shipped
per the steamer Ohio, of their line, to Liver
pool, England, were all rotten on their ar
rival at that port, owing to the exhaustion of
the ice in the refrigerator vaults, which gave
ont on the 29th of August. The fruit carried
well until that time and until the 2nd of Sep
tember, when it gave way and "went down"
rapidly. It is said that but 15 tons of ice
were carried by the steamer, which was en
tirely insufficient.
How ■ Marylander Lott |SOO.
James Hnrt, Esq., of Galena, Md., came np
to Middletown on Monday last and while
here concluded to go around to the show
gronnds and see the elephant He went—he
saw—he was more than satisfied. He stepped
into the small tent to take a look at the fat
woman, and saw there a chance to make a
fortune—a fellow bad a box in which were a
quantity of envelopes containing some num
bers and some blanks. The payment of a
small fee entitled a man to draw one of these
envelopes and if be got one with certain num
bers be was to draw a prize—in one instance
a gold watch ; in another $500, Ac. Now
Mr. Hurt was not foolish enongh to think
that he could get $500 or any other sum, out
of one of. those envelopes, and consequently
refused to make the venture, bnt he lost $200
for all that ; and this is how he did it : While
talking to the man of the envelopes the latter
expressed his opinion that the whole party of
which Mr. Hunt was one, could not raise
$200 among them. This rather wounded the
pride of Mr. Hart and to prove the falsity of
the asertion he drew his pocket book and
proceeded to count out $200. Just as he
finished, he says, the envelope man quickly
reached out and swept the money into his till,
remarking to Mr. Hnrt, "it is your tarn to
draw now.
demanded the return of his money but he
didn't get it. After vainly trying to get
back bis greenbacks Mr. Hnrt left the tent
and, procuring a warrant, endeavored to get
an officer to arrest the Circus Company on a
charge of swindling him, but no officer could
be found and Mr. H. was obliged to return to
bis home with a lighter pocket book and a
heavier heart.
Another gentlemao whose name we did not

Tbe Hors« Disease.
From forty to fifty horses have died in
Thoroughfare and Raymond's Necks since
Tuesday of last week, of the staggers, or
cerebro spinal meningitis, and new cases are
daily reported, bnt fatality is not so frequent.
The cessation of the rains for over a week
have somewhat checked the spread of the
epidemic, however, and this, with the
forced caution of the farmers, may terminate
tbe calamity. The assertion is made in some
quarters that the disease has been caused in
not a few instances by over work and lack of
proper food. Provender is short and many
farmers have had nothing mach bnt grass to
feed with. Even under favorable circum
stances this could not have continued long
without some disadvantage but when
take tbe watery, vapid condition of the grass
into tbe account the fatality is not so remark
able after all. Of course, a number of well
fed horses bave died ; but tbe majority have
been of tbe other sort, we are told. Young

horses have suffered far more than old ones,
and when the diseuse gets first hold it is be

perience. Remedies are numerous, however,
and a gentleman hands us the following, sent
him by a friend :
''This disease generally prevails during the
months of August, September and October.
As soon as it is known that the disease is
blind staggers, take pork brine and rub it
over the horse's body ; rub it well with the
hand ; the heat of the disease will soon dry
it in ; then apply it two or three times, mb it
well with the hand. This I have tried a
number of times, and never failed to cure.

47 Market Street.
Chicago, July 28,1875,
We would call the attention of the
Delaware Frnit Growers
to the favorable opportunity they have of in
troducing their Fruit in the West this present
season. In ordinary years, our supply of
Peaches comes from Michigan,aad the receipts
during the season, run from 8,000 to 15,000
one-tbird bushel baskets per diem, and when
the receipts run under 12,000, good varieties,
such as Old Mixons and Crawfords, average
$1.25 to $1.50 per basket. This year,
Tbe Crop Beins a Failire,
the few Michigan growers who have Fruit, are
offered $2.00 per basket, in the orchard. From
present indications, we think DELAWARE
GROWERS can confidently expect
$3.50 to $5.00 per Met,
of five-eighth bushel, in our city, and having
experience and standing in the business, we
offer our services, and shall be pleased to give
prompt attention to all shipments. The Frnit
ran be shipped by Star Union Express Line,
from Philadelphia, at $1.50 per 100 Ibs.,;and,
in all probability, less rates can be made.—
The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad can get the
Frnit through in tbirty-six hours, from the
orchards, and at less rates than the Star Union
Line. We have facilities for handling a Car
Load a day to good advantage, and if the
trade justifies it, so we can handlej more, we
will advise you of it promptly. We make re
turns the same day the Fruit is received, and
furnish telegraphic information of the Market
to all who desire it.
Trustiog that we shall hear from you, we
remain
Respectfully yours,

NEW
Wheel Attachment for Pious.
Charles Adams, of Odessa, Delaware, hag
invented an Attachment for Plows which has
been thorough tested, and gives perfect satis
faction to ail farmers who have seen it work.
It consists of an Adjustable iron clamp or col
lar which can be attached to the beam of any
p'ow with which tbe amount of land to be
taken can be accurately ganged, to this clamp
is attached two adjustable wheels, one run
ning in the furrow and one on the land,
which gauges any depth of furruw desired.
The advantages of this attachment are, that
it takes a uniform amount of land and holds
the plow at a fixed depth without being held
by the plowman, which saves a large per
centage of draft, that it is cheap and within
the react) of all persons needing plows, that
it can be attached to any plow in a few min
utes. These attachments are being manu
factured by D. Woodall A Co., at Middle
town, Del., and it will be to the Interest of
the farming community tofezamine them.
