Their reputation, almost world-wide, is so well known as to make comment useless. It is bnt necessary to call tbe attention of the general reader to tbe advertisement. The season for baying winter-clothing is at hand, and people in these straitened times are desir ous to know where they can buy thé most goods for the smallest amount of money.

In your lMt paper there is account of an apple said to be larger than the one I showed in yonr town, and Mking me to take a hack seat. This apple, the writer says, came from a Mr. Zack, or Uncle Zack, and weighed 24} ounces at the time of tbe. Middletown Fair.— Now, is it reasonable to suppose, if this Uncle Zack bad had an apple weighing .24} ounces, be would have kept it hid, whilst he exhibited much smaller ones ? Nothing wm beard of this 24} ounce apple until I produced one weighing, when pulled, 24 ounces. When I took it to Middletown, Sam'l M. Reynolds weighed it before several persons, and it weighed within a trifle of 24 ounces; I after wards took it to Clarence Anderson's apothe cary, and when he put it on his scales it weighed within a few grains of 24 ounces ; it wm afterwards taken to Wilmington, and there in Bringhnrst's apothecary weighed 23} ounces—having dried some. I give tbe names of the different persons and places where my appie wm weighed, and before I take a back seat I wonld like to see as strong an array of proof about this Zack apple m I can give of Samuel Townsend. mine. (Communicated ) Upsetting of a Boat In Chesapeake Bay Severe Suffering from the Cold. Last week two yonng men, Richard Lock wood, of this town, and Hamilton Morton, of Warwick, Md., started from Fredericktown to Baltimore in a small sail boat. They took with them two colored men as boatmen. The trip to the city occupied six days and iras very pleasant, unattended with any accident. The party made frequent halts for the purpose of gnnning, and all went well nntil they reached Baltimore, when, while unloading the boat, a gnn which Mr. Morton wm pass ing to Mr. Lockwood, accidentally struck against something and wm diecharged, the load taking effect in tbe palm of Mr. L's band, and cansing a painful wound. The hand was properly dressed, and the two remaiued in Baltimore until Saturday (last.) One of the colored men left them in the city, and with the other they started on the homeward trip down tbe bay. When about sixteen miles out, about four o'clock, p. m., a fierce squall suddenly arose, capsizing the boat and plunging the inmates into the water. In going over the sail struck the colored man on the head, badly stunuing him. All three, however, succeeded in clutch Wilh their wet county nest Levy its ing the bottom of the boat, clothes clinging to them, the weather intense ly cold and a strong wind driving great waves over them, their sufferings now became al Before leaving the city Camden, pull un loss, most unbearable, young Lockwood had sent his valise home by steamer, but Mr. Morton had his in the boat with him, and of course when it was upset all the contents were thrown into the water, and gone his week. Craw William on pur make bis week. ser Vande paid all their clothing, guns, gunning apparatus, Ac-, were lost. Their position was certainly an unenviable one. Each succeeding wave, they feared, would wash them from the boat, and, in their exhausted condition, they would be drowned. Their hearts and voices were lifted in earnest prayer for safety, while the storm continued in unabated violence.— At length, if he was to drown it might as well be in an effort to save his life, quit his hold upon the boat and bravely struck out for the nearest land a quarter of a mile distant. Though his crippled hand somewhat retarded his efforts he succeeded in reaching the shore though His account Mr. Lockwood, declaring nearly frozen by the icy water, of his sufferings while swimming is most touching. He often felt that he must sink. Indeed, when a hundred yards from the shore, he gave up, but in allowing his feet to go down they struck bottom, and he managed to reach the beach, where he sank down, by this time completely exhausted. Two boys came to his assistance, and after he revived they procured a boat and rescued Mr. Morton and the negro from thèir dangerous position the inverted boat. The three stayed that night and next day at a farm house, and on Monday, penniless (for they had lost all the money from their pockets) walked to Balti more, a distance of sixteen miles, where their pockets were replenished with money, and th e y subs e quently r e ached home, where they related to the undersigned this account of their voyage and the sufferings they had to go through with. It is safe to say that no amount of money coni d induce them toon-, dertake the trip again, for, as they are on land safe, they wish to remain so. takes have tbe drill on The brick, and by done card ap this Alexis. store by have Tlte Teachers* Institute.

I THE CELEBRATED Hagerstown or Peer's Patent (THK BEST) M - having the cel SUPER will sat a fair The Points of Superiority in this Drill over all others are : 1st. Force Fed Arrangement for Sowing Grain, consisting of one gum and one iron roller ; which is really the only Force Feed arrangement made, giving you an even and regular distribution of grain at all times. Can sow any amount of grain from a peck to two bushels. 2d. The Patent Spring Does, having Gum Springs on end of Drag Bar (and the only perfect gum spring arrangement made), there by doing away with the old wooden brake pins, and allowing tbe Drill to pass any ob struction that tbe axle will go over without in any way interfering with the working the Drill. 3d.

Patent Shield for Covering Gear-wheels, to prevent clogging or cramping with weeds or cornstalks, or accumulating grit and gravel, and making the DriU run heavy, is a decided improvement over other Drills. 5th. The Land Surveyor is as correct as is possible to make one, having one face showing 1-16 part of an acre, and another face registering the acres. 6th. The Patent Axles are so constructed that the bearings are on the outer and inner parta of tbe spindle, causing tbe Drill to run lighter to tbe team, and more steady than bearings were on centre ofspindle. 7th.
