EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editob. HIDDLETOWS. DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, JAN. 1,1816. Th* Stats Grange —Through the kind courtesy of Wm. Deao, Esq., we received a few days ago a full account of the proceeding! of the State Grange at its recent meeting at Milford. It is too lengthy to admit of onr publishing it this week. As Christmas comes bat onee a year the printer men like to have a little share of its holidays like other people. This has compelled us to eat short onr supply of readiog this week but we will make it up next week. Hark ness' Magazine is one of the most attractive, entertaining and in structive for the whole family. The snbscription is one dollar in advance for four numbers and should be addressed to Harkness' Magazine. Wilmington, Del. Beantifol poems, delightful sto ries and attractive sketches, with avoid ance of lengthy articles and continued stories, are its characteristics. The issue before us contains a beau tiful "Ode to Winter" by Mrs. S. Dew ey, a very entertaining and exhaustive research into the private and domestic life of "The First President at Phila delphia." This article alone ie worth the aabaoription price, bat it contains thirteen poems, among whioh " Fairy Land" by Liaaie York Case, and "Cherry Lane" by Nellie M. Garabrant, are the beet, six stories, the Three Sons of a Beggar by Unole Al, taking the lead, and seventeen sketches, not in cluding much miscellaneous and humor ous matter. It is well worth the money and any one who seeks, in the family, to promote social, moral and intellect ual instruction, and to make home at tractive and pleasant, should address, for four numbers, one dollar to Hark ness' Magazine. 1875, With joy* and aotrow*, smile* and tears, sunshine and shadows, marking its courte, bas passed from the calendar and made one more foot print in man's march to eternity. Hôw much for good or for evil, during the year, each life has accomplished, is known only to that Eye that never sleeps, and recorded in that book whose pages will be revealed to man at the bar of the Most High. "The widow's mite," "the cup of cold water," a pleasant word, " little deeds of kindness,"—all will be found duly entered to the proper accounts, and, in mercy, allowed to atone for many sins. The year past has been filled with many blessings to yon, kind readers of the Trahscäipt. Your homes have been guarded from pestilence and famine. Peaoe, happiness and good-will has sat jonnd your hearthstone. Your lands yielded a generous return for labor ex pended on them, and like "Adfinia' gar dens that one day bloomed ancT^'OMR*! , were tbe next," have given just cause to gratefully look back over tbe year that has goue ; and like tbe traveler'.at the end of a long journey, retracing in memory a tedious route, recalls some abided nook "where highest woods im penetrable to star or sunlight, spread their umbrage broad," or murmuring rill, or wayside cot, so can we look back over 1875, remembering those little " things that go so far to make ns more appreciative of the pleasant places into which onr lives have fallen. It is true that "into each life some rain must fall" and yon have been no exception. The . Death Angel has folded his wing over many households, striking from their midst a loved form—leaving an empty chair, a vacant corner, an unused plate, a little rattle, to remind ns that He who gave in His own good time reolaims Bnt these (to us) seeming afflictions are the workings out of the great plan of fallen man's redemption, and thrice blessed is he who can say and feel, in burying friends kindred and time, "He doeth all things well." Then with grate ful hearts let ns enter on tbe duties of the new year, joyfully hailing 1876 with happy heart* and firm resolves to gnard against oversights and errors of the past, and in tbe year just born to ns to take a firm step forward in the path of reotftnde and honor, cherishing th« commandment "love thy neighbor ai thyself," commencing to-day and making one-at least happy ont of the many who are less fortunate in the good things of life. Forgive thine enemy, speak kindly to him, and extend the hand of friendabip. Tbe reward of snob a coarse will be a light and happy heart, peaceful slumbers and easy consoience. Try it, good readers, and in the excite ment incident to the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of onr na tional existence and the political strife of a presidential campaign, more of kindliness will be felt for the differences of opinion neoessary to exist, and when 1878 hath passed away may all of us look back over that time with pleasant recollections of happy hour*, profitably ■pent, in cultivation of Friendship, Loy« and Troth. i 1 A. Mayor Stokely, of Philadelphia yes terday issued a proclamation requesting the citizens of that city to illuminate their house* and display flag* Friday and Saturday evenings, and ing that the State bouse bell would be rung one-balf hour, oommeuoing at mid-night.

Cuba The Ala day day day Looking Backward and Forward. —Having passed Christmas day, and looking forward to the new ynar and back at the year that is gone, it cannot be said otherwise than that we have very much to he thankful for. We have passed through probably one of the most trying years, financially, that this coun try bas ever seen. We believe that though the process has been painful it has been salutatory, and will serve as a means to restrain the extravagances of speculation and bring us down to the more sober, real and healthy modes of life that existed before the war. The American Grocer on this subject says ; "Having touched bottom or thereabouts, with heavy crops, with the real wealth of the country continually augmenting, With onr exports increasing and the markets of the world opening to onr in dustries, with onr dependence on for eign countries growing less and less— is it extravagant to hope that a prospér ons future, a time such as we have never vet seen, is before us, and apart from the influences of the hoar, is this not enough to make Christmas happy and the new year one of hope and promise?"— Balt. Sun. The subjoined pretty poem, from the pen of David Paul Brown, was pub lished some twenty-five or thirty years ago. It is appropriate to the closing year and will bear republication ; THI GRAVI OF THI TEAR. The flower* of spring are removed, The foliage of summer is gone, The charms we so tenderly loved Have fled, and the heart is aloDe. Spring again shall enrich the gay bowers, And snmmer enliven the plain, But the heart that is robbed of its flowers, Never, never shall flourish again. But why should we mortals repine In approaching the grave of the year ? Through tbe vista of perishing time Eternity's mansions appear. There spring shall unceasingly bloom, And tbe heart forever be gay, While the wintry night of the tomb Is lost in perpetual day. Charles A. Lazardiere, formerly a teacher in the schools at Boston, has been arrested charged with swindling about fifty persons, whom he initiated in a bogus Masonic lodge, pooketing all the fees and depending on tbe ignorance of his victims to oarry ont bis scheme.
