The Sussex Journal says the peach-growers
of that county are worse off now financially
than they were before the beginning of peach
season. Their shipments brought them in
debt.'' r
During the evening exhibition of the New
Orleans and New York Circus Company at
Wilmington last week a severe storm of wind
and naio cam up, and unceremoniously put
a stop to tbe proceedings,
The Attorney General, it is said, intends
to have the Constables who Tailed to execute
the Coroner's warrants for the arrest of tbe
WhiMocks, indicted at tbe approaching term
of Oourt for dereliction of dnty. *
The Herald and Commercial have been pitch
ing iuto each other, this week, on the ques
tion of finances—specie.and greenbacks—
each accusing tbe other of (mowing nothing
about tbe subject.
J. Fletcher Burris, formerly of this Hun
dt*i,and a recent graduate of the Michigan
University, Aon Arbor, Mich., bas obtained
a position as teacher in California on a salary
of $2500 per annum.
X&ëmiu Wbtch foil on Thureday may have
somewhat retarded tbe work of.gathering
and shipping peachqs, bat it was bailed as a
great public blessing by the town people, for
the duet had got awfully thick again.
The work of catting off corn, bas com
menced, and the fields are beginning to pre
sent a very antunm-like appearance. The
farmers are also busy preparing the ground
for wheat and seeding will soon commence.
Tha "Blind Staggers," the horse disease
which recently broke out among the horses
in Thoroughfare Neck still prevails in that
district and numbers of valuable animals are
being daily added to those which have died
ofit.
Dr. Clayton A. Cowgiil,formerly of Dover,
but now State Comptroller of Florida, has
been making a visit to bis parents in Dover
for a week or two. He is accompanied by

Those abominable nuisances, tbe tramps or
peach plucks, now that the peach season is
drawing to a close, having spent tbe money
they received for rnm, are hanging around
tbe streets and annoying the people by their
constant begging.
Wm. Short, an old and eccentric citizen of
Georgetown, Sussex Co., died in that town
last week. Some of bis peculiarities were to
wear long white hair and beard, say queer
things and profett to believe netbing that he
did not see, or feel for himself.
It has been suggested that it would be an
eminently proper thing for the stockholders
of tbe Peninsula Agricultural Association,
with their wives, daughters and sweethearts,
to bold a grand basket pic-nic on the Fair
Grounds previous to the exhibition.
There are said to be about 120 stills in
operation in this State making peach brandy.
It is estimated that some 20,000 gallons bave
already been made and considerable more
will be made yet. This feature of the great
peach crop looks more like a curse than a
blessing.

Addie Fairbanks, a yonug lady residing in
Odessa, stumbled oteVO bucket in Sellers'
drying hollkehè Wednesday, "and (ailing on
her baçh received some painful injuries.
There is atomar in circulation that in one
house in Middletown forty negroes live, and
in another twenty. If this isn't economy
and (bad) health, I'd like to have a better
sample.
Land Purchase .—Onr townsman, Mr. Win.
N. Wilson, bas purchased of Harrison W.
Vickers, trustee, the farm known as
ehester," situated below Chestertown, Md.,
immediately on Chesapeake Bay. The farm
contains 1040 acres, and the price paid for it
was $22.25 per acre, and this is considered a
good bargain, as 800 acres are tillable and
yield good crops, especially corn. The pro
perty is a portion of the estate of the Mitchell
heirs, of Baltimore, and was once worth $60
000, but owing to the general decline of land,
it has reduced accordingly. Mr, Wilson in
tends occupying the farm, but may postpone
doing so until 1876.
Tramp SHrmith .—Three individuals of
roaming proclivities went through town on
Wednesday and were all very near the verge
of drunkenness. After a great noise on
Broad street, the trio started down the road
leading to Smyrna, and when opposite E. R.
Cochran's nursery one of them commenced
throwing stones at one of the negroes employ
ed there, though we are not informed whether
there was any provocation for the same
or not. The 15th amendment could not
'Tol
stand thi s attack without getting angry, so
he wen * «° r t * le tl> ree of them and
thrashed them pretty well, when an arrival
of some white men caused him to desist. The
affair was witnessed from the corner of Broad
and Main streets, and attracted some notice
from passers by.
Cutting Cate .—At Sellers' drying bouse in
this town, Mr. James Collins is employed as
night "boss," and his subordinates are prin
cipally of the colored race. Some difficulty
has been occasioned in keeping many of these
hands awake during tbs night, and among
hard sleepers is Mary Blackiston. Now, on
Friday night of last week Mary was "snooz
ing" complacently,and "not a wave of trouble
rolled across her peaceful" brain. Mr. Collins
approached her three times and tapped her on
tbe arm, at the same time telling her to wake
up and go to work. The last time he did so
he shook her harder than usual and before he
could withdraw his hand the negro lifted the
knife and drew it across his wrist, cutting a
bad gash, and rendering medical aid neces
sary, beside causing a loss of time to Mr. Col
lins at the factory. Mary alleges that it was
all an accident, bat some of her friends are
anxious to prove that she had previously
made threats to repay her overseer for bis
style oP talking to her ladyship. The case
may be peaceably settled, as the woman has
begged forgiveness and offered to pay the
doctor's bill.
Delaware City Item*.
Delawabk City, Sept. 17.
The "park" presents a very inviting ap
pearance. O, if it was only lfeger !
Business is as lively in our town as else
where, and though there is ,,a dullness we
have no real cause for complaint.
The Chesapeake and Delaware canal has
done an exceedingly good business this sum
mer. Boots are eveu "locked" in tbe river
on Sundays, so as to allow safe transporta
tion to the perishable freight.
Tbe large building formerly used as a tiu
manufactory is now made a canning house.
One day last week 1,500 baskets of tomatoes
were put up, the skins having been taken
from them previously. Cans are purchased
in New York to supply the firm.
A large trestle-work is lying near the canal
locks, which is to be used to dam tbe canal
daring the coming winter, so that repairs to
the locks can be made. It is probable that
the Canal Company are aware that these re
pairs are necessary, and should have been
completed-before this.
Repairs are being made to the Battery
south of out town and have been in progress
for some time. The Government is also
building a similar Battery opposite Fort
Delaware on tbe Jersey side, so that no vessel
can pass in either channel without properly
signaling, or receiving some broad-siders.
The sporting season has opened with a
charge on tbe blackbirds and reedbirds.
Early in tbe morning gunners station them
selves on the canal locks, and as the birds fly
over in flocks a shot is fired into them and
the birds fall in easy reach. Quite a good
number have already been killed, and as the
days go by many new sportsmen are added to
the number.
E. A C. Yon Colin, job printers, are think
ing of starting a weekly paper soon. They
have a very good office now, but with addi
tional newspaper type it will be more com
plete. We wish the paper success, but that
success will depend on the practical knowl
edge tbe proprietors have of running a paper.
We are not informed when the first issue will
be sent ont.
Rev. T. Ralston Smith delivered an able
sermon, and one very much appreciated, at
the Presbyterian Church on last Sunday
evening, bis text being Prov.: 22d chap. 17th
to 21st verse. A good attendance was no
ticed, and the speaker had the pleasure of
close attention to his words, of which he is
quite fond. It will be remembered that
Mr. Smith was once (in 1852) stationed in
our towu.
Many formers have shipped peaches this
season that were not good enough to pay
freight, and consequently were not taken from
tbe deck of the Major Reybold , but brought
back to Delaware City and emptied in the
river. The opinion prevails that tbe later
frait will pay^ and thns will the growers
make up for their loss on earlier varieties.
It is shown here that cheap freights are not
beneficial.
The circus that recently appeared in Middle
town exhibited here the day previous. Not
much money was taken away by the three
card monte men, for all they got did not
amount to $20. I see they operated success
folly in Middletown. The circus perform
ances were good, and were largely attended.
One feature of the day was putting the ele
phant in the canal for a bath, and well did
his lordship enjoy the water, for he swam
and snorted for some time.
Alexis.
A Mew and Improved Caller.
Onr ingenious friend, Mr. John A. Jones,
has made an addition of auother section to
his Assorter, so that it will now assert the
peaches into four different grades—double
extras, extras, primes and calls. This new
machine is a little more intricate than tbe one

days ago on Crawford's Late, wi(h the rollers

primes and two of calls. The taking out of i
the one basket of double extras did not hurt j
.. . .. ... ....
the appearance of the extras id the least; ;
consequently all brought by them over the
extras wonld be so much net gain. j
Pencil shipments still continue to be made,
and will last for some time jet.
The apple crop this year is not very heavy ;
except Of some varieties.
The privntë schools have began their fall
The public schools will open in a few
term,
weeks.
Messrs. Polk arid Williams were thrown
from their carriage a few days since, but were
not very badly injured.
A party of young open were also tumbled
down an embankment, with their carriage
breaking tbè vehicle, but escaping unhurt
themselves.
Mr. R. L. Mailley has erected a large and
commodious coal house in the rear of his
store bonse capable of holding a large amount
of coal
Accident. —Mamie, a little daughter of Mr.
R. L. Mailley, fell a few days ago and was
found by some children with whom she had
been playing in an insensible condition.
The horses with the "blind staggers" an
der Mr. Harvey's treatment are rapidly re
covering. Tbe horse whose jaw bone was
fractured not long ago is also doing very
well. This latter speaks well for the skill in
veterinary surgery of Mr. Harvey.
Tbe usual quietude and monotony of our
town has been considerably disturbed re
cently by many incidents—the result of the
too free use of fire water. On Saturday
evening last several individuals were found
soundly sleeping upon the side walks, tbe
curb their pillow and Heaven's canopy their
covering. Tbe police's tender feelings prompt
ed him to give them a softer bed and more
comfortab le lodging; so he picked them up
and escorted them to the lockup where they
slept off the effect of their potions and on
Sunday morning were set at liberty.
Another party was arrested for wrongly
appropriating to himself the greenbacks of
another. A woman was also arrested for dis
turbing the peace and lodged in the cells
where she remained her "allotted time" and
was discharged.
On Monday evening a party of three enter
ed the saloon of Charles Adams and after
drinking each struck one of the inmates and.
reiurned to the street. ' Mrs. H. caught up a
stick and ran after the assailants and—meas
ured her length in the gutter. The police
then marshalled their forces and started in
hot pursuit of the law breakers. When the
town limits were reached the party turned,
drew pistols and defied further advance.
This brought the pursuers to a halt, and the
chief, finding bis gun was without a cap,
beat a retreat. The injured parties are con
valescent and rapidly recovering. No arrests
iiave yet been made.
H EXICON.
B
-
Big Flgarn.
The Smyrna Timet estimates the number of
horse3 that have died, of tbe "hind staggers"
within a radius of ten miles of that town, at
100, and the loss at $100,000. Those are
pretty steep figures, neighbor; couldn't you
take off just one of tbe cyphers?
Good Prtee*.
R. W. .'Cochran, Esq., showed ua the re
turns from some of his peaches sent this week
to New York. They were of the Pollen
variety and first rate. They brought $2.25,
$2.50, $3.00, $3.50, $4.00, $4.50, $5.00 per
basket,, and there was a good lot of them. .If
anyone has beaten this in this year of too
many peaches we would for curiosity's sake,
like tp hearofit.
Rev. Mr. Kenney Suspended.
The committee appoiuted to investigate the
charges against the Rev. E. T. Kenney, of
Wilmington, which hqd been in session at
Chester, Pa., for tbe past throe days conclud
ed their labors on Thursday week. Mr.
Kenney is suspended from his ministerial
charge to await the action of the next annual
conference next spring. The evidence is not
made public, but it is understood to bo pretty
strong.

Arrest of the Senior Whitlock*
Yesterday, Deputy Sheriff, Wm. B. Foard,
of Kirkwood, accompanied by Policeman
Heald, came to Middletown and arrested John
Whitlock, Sr., on a charge of being an ac
cessory to the murder, byjhis sou, of the ne-,
gro Wm. Furches. The old man was found
at tbe grog shop of his son. The officers en
tered the room at different doors and encoun- at
tered Whitlock and another man. The offi
cers say the prisoner looked defiance at them,
but offered no resistance. This arrest it is
said, was made to stop newspaper clamor.
.
Old Drawyeri Reunion.
The seventh annual reunion of tbe de
scendants and successors of the Presbyterians
who were wont to worship in Old Drawyers
Church, many years ago, was held in the old
building last Sunday. As usual a large au
dience, gathered from the congregations of
the churches of Odessa, St. Georges, Dela
ware City, Port Penn, Pencader and Middle
town, was in attendance and once more the
old walls resounded to the hymns of praise.
Rev. Dr. John Crowell, of Odessa, preached
in the morning and Rev. Mr. Rogers, of Glas
gow, in the afternoon.
More Peaches for Kurope.
Three crates of peaches were shipped from
Middletown on Wednesday to go direct to
Liverpool, England. They were coated with
a preparation of paraffine made and patented
by a gentleman from New York which, it is
claimed, wilt preserve them in a perfect con
dition for a long while. When the fruit is to
be used it is only necessary to dip it in hot
water and the paraffine is removed, no trace
of it in taste or appearance being left. The
peaches were put up in the orchard of Mr. H.
N. Wiiiits under the superintendence of tbe
inventor of the process, and will leave Phila;
delphia to-day per steamer for Europe.

We would call tbe attention of the
i'Æiip : % -y '
Delaware Fruit Grover:
to the favorable opportunity they have of in
troducing their Fruit in the West this present
In ordinary years, our supply of
Peaches comes from Michigan,and the receipts
during the season, run, from 8,000 to 15,000
one-third bnshel baskets per diem, and when
tbe receipts run under 12,000, good varieties,
such as Old Mixons and Crawfords, average
$1.25 to $1.50 per basket. This year,
season.
Tie Crop Beim a Failure,
the few Michigan growers who have Frait, are
offered $2.00 per basket, in the orchard. From
pr esent indications, wc think DE LAWARE
GROWERS can -confidently expect
per Met,
$3.50 to m
)
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
propspt attention to all shipments. The Fruit
can be shipped by Star Union Express Line,
from Philadelphia, at $1.50 per 100. lbs. ,]and,
in all probability, less rates can be made.—
The Baltimore A Ohio Railroad can get the
Fruit through in thirty-six hours, from the
orchards, and at less rates than tbe Star Union
Line. We have facilities for handling a Car
Load a day to good advantage, and if the
trade justifies it, eo we can handle more, we
will advice you of it promptly. Wç make re
turns the same day the Fruit is received, and
,furnish_telegraphic information of the Market
to ail who desire it.

Charles Adams, of Odessa, Delaware, has
an Attachment for Plows which has
ion
been thorough teeted, and gives perfect satis
all farmers who bave seen it work,
it consists of an adjustable iron clamp or col
lar which can be attached to tbe beam of any
plow with whfob tbe àmoant of land to be
taken can be accurately ganged, to this clamp
fe attached two adjustable wheels, one rnn
ning in the furrow and one on the land,
which ganges any depth of furrow 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 reach of all persons needing plows, that
it can be attached to any plow in a few rata
ntes. These attachments are tieing manu
factured by D. Woodall k Co., at Middle
town, Dei., and it will be to the interest of
tbe farming community to examine them.
