Action was also taken in reference to making certain needed repairs in the church property, and a committee was appointed to make some slight alterations in tbe audience-room of the church.

The Commissioners of the two school dis tricts in this town being nnable to effect a compromise arrangement of their differences in regard to the Academy, the commissioners of 94 have entered into an agreement with Professor Stephens, the present principal, under which the schools of that district will, during the present quarter at least, be con ducted under his superitendence in tbe aend emy. The schools will be diveded into dif ferent grades and departments according to the attainments of the pnpils. The people of Middletown have been trying for several years to get the Academy for the purpose of creat ing a better class of schools than we now have but some obstacle or other has always arisen to prevent tbe accomplishment of their object until now. The present arrangement, however, is mereley a temporary one which may be' knocked on the head next fall when the term of the present principle of the acad emy will expire. A Hatter of Small Importance. The Her aid tells this : An incident, which was tbe cause of considerable amusement, occurred at the P. W. A B. Depot in this city, Monday afternoon, upon the arrival of the Delaware train at four o'clock. Everybody most in Wilmington, have either seen or heard of the lilipntian colored boot black at the depot, bnt upon the arrival of the train Monday, bis diminutive star was decidedly eclipsed by the appearance upon the smoking car platform of an old colored gentleman of forty-seven springs, from Dor chester county, Maryland, measuring thirty seven inches in his boots, and weighing thirty-seven pounds avoirdupois. Henry's rival answered to tbe name of John Fletcher, and was on his way to Jersey, where he will soon appear beneath the showman's tentas the champion small man in tbe country. He is happy in the possession of a hundred and fifty-seven pounds of wife at his home, in Dorchester county. Henry, our Wilulftgton boot black, wbo was easily able to look over the Dorchester county man, high hat and all, greeted his rival heartily, and the accidental meeting of the two small folks afforded an immense amount of amusement to a large crowd, which bad gathered around, and re mained about the train until it moved off, with the Jersey showman and his Dorchester county prize. be List of Jnrors—May Term.

Quite recently a short-sighted husband of Cambridge saw a large bouquet of flowers on a chair, and wishing to preserve them from fading, placed them in a basin of water. When his wife saw the bouquet half an hour afterwards she gave one piercing scream and fainted on the spot. Her defective-visioned husband had mistaken her new bonnet with its profusion of flowers, for a freshly culled bouquet.— Cambridge Herald.

IN BAGFS OF 200 POUNDS EACH. Read carefully the annexed Certificates of Farmers who have used it : M for Mar. No. 6 West Tenth Street, Wilmington, Del. J. B. CLARKSON, Agent, MIDDLETOWN, DEL. CERTIFICATES: The Farmer 's Friend, a newspaper published at Mechanicsburg, Pa., in the interests of Charles Jackson, of Christiana Hundred, says : The Farmer 's Friend, a newspaper the Patrons of Husbandry, says : "We have at different times been asked by our correspondents to name a commercial manure which contains all the elements needed by the growing crop. Such a manure is hardly needed, because even the poorest of all soils contains enough of at least one or more of the elements for a crop. The main constituents needed, and which are oftenest absent from the soil, are potash, phosphate of lime (phosphoric acid), and ammonia. If either of these he entirely absent, a crop cannot be produced, and if they are not in sufficient amounts, only a partial one will be obtained. Barn-yard manure, if properly taken care of, contains the elements of successful growth, but cannot be obtained in sufficient amount. Pondrette, if properly manipulated, contains all the elements in about tbe proper proportions, and should be mnch more widely used than at present. Its low price and convenience of appli cation render it one of the most economical sources of some of the most important elements of plant food." . , , - . ... That we do not recommend 'h Poudrette too much ourselves, the following testimonials from some farmers, gardeners, 4c., who have used the fertilizer, speak for themselves. By their permission we submit them to your perusal. Mr. Joseph Petitdernange, of Christiana Hundred, says : I used four tons of your Poudrette this Spring, and it gives me pleasure to state that I am much pleased with its results ; it has proved a perfect success on my corn crop, and every thing to which I have applied it. I consider that the increased yield of corn it has produced will pay for the corn a half dozen times, besides the benefit to the laud. I cheerfully recom mend it to farmers as a reliable fertilizer, and the best and cheapest in the market. 1 shall not plant any wheat this fall or I should use it ; next Spring I shall use it bn everything I plant, and shall require a large quantity. I trust that you will meet with the best success, which your fertilizer justly merits. Mr. Wm. Rotthouse, of Brandywine Hundred, near Wilmington, Delaware, says : August 20th, 1875. My corn, to which I applied your Poudrette, .will produce a handsome yield ; the ears are large and well filled. I also used it on my onions, cabbage, and other truck, and it has pro duced the best results and given me satisfaction on whatever 1 have applied It. I cheerfully recommend it to farmers as the best and cheapest fertilizer in the market. I shall want four tons for my wheat. Stephen Wilson, ofHockessin, says: Hockessin, 9th mo. 12th, 1875. Haring used the fertilizer on corn this Spring, in th« hill, I must say that it has given better results than any fertilizer for the money I have tried. Thomas J. Edge, of Londongrove, Chester county, Pa., says ; 6th mo. 7th, 1875. My wheat, to which your Poudrette was applied, looks quite as well, if not better, than that immediately adjoining, which had a good coat of yard manure. From some cause the Poudrette wheat winter killed less, and the difference in its favor, as shown when the snow and ice passed off, has been maintained ever since. It is yet too soon to report its results upon Hungarian grass, but at the present time the indications are favorable to your manure. For garden vegetables, and where quick action is desirable, I find it to give the best results. I hope you may meet with the success which I believe the quality of yonr manure merits. Samuel Comely, of Cooch's Bridge, member of Newark Grange, No. 5, says i The Poudrette purchased from you and used on my wheat last fall gave great satisfaction. Where 1 used the Poudrette the wheat was less winter-killed, and in the spring looked quite as well, if not better, than that on which other fertilizers had been used. I consider it tbe best and cheapest fertilizer offered to the farmer, and for corn and other seed where quick action is required, there is nothing, in my opinion, its equal. George Jackson, of New Castle Hundred, says : I used one ton of yonr Pondrette on my corn with satisfactory results, and am sorry I did not apply it to all my field, as it would have added greatly to the yield of corn. I believe it to be a good fertilizer. Abner Hollingsworth, of Christiana Hundred says : In answer to yonr inquiry, I bave to state that tbe Poudrette I have used on my corn has given me good satisfaction.' I bad a little left after planting my corn, which I used on my turnip patch as far as it went. Tbe balance of the ground I planted without any fertilizer ; the result is that where I used tbe Pondrette I have fine turnips, and where I did not I have nothing. I believe yonr fertilizer to he good, and all yon claim for it. Business Harris, J. MEIER 6 BB0. MERCHANT TAILORS, t S. E.

I used Pondrette and Phillips' Phosphate on my potatoes and cabbage, the same quantities of each, and I can see no difference in the result, showing that the Pondrette is just as good as the Phosphate, and costs little more than half as much. Mr. H. H. Jordan, of Christiana Hundred, says : I used two tons of yonr Pondrette on my corn, and fonnd it equal to the best Phosphate, and at less than half the price. I will use it on my wheat this fall. The farmer will find it to his advantage to nse it freely on all crops. Mr. J. B. Moore, of Mill Creek Hnndred, says : I used two tons of yonr Pondrette on my corn, and am very much pleased with tbe result.. It gave the corn an early start and vigorous growth, and I believe greatly added to the yield. I like it as well as bone, and its results are as good, if not better. I tried it also on truck, and found the beBt results. I will want two tons for wheat this fall. Ex-Sheriff R. Lewis Armstrong says : Yonr Poudrette has given me the best satisfaction. It is tbe best fertilizer I ever used on my corn. I have plenty of manure for my wheat, or I would use it this fall. You ire at liberty to use my name in recommending it to farmers. Hon. Thomas Holcomb, Speaker of the House of Representatives, says : On land of mine on which was applied about 400 lbs. per acre of your Pondrette in tbe fall of 1874, we harvested over thirty bushels of wheat to the acre. Michael Mullen, near Talleyville, Brandywine Hnndred, says : The Poudrette purchased of the Wilmington Poudrette Co. gave me better results than any fertilizer I ever nsed, and I cheerfully recommend it to farmers for general use on crop*. I used it on potatoes, cabbage, and other vegetables with the best results, and my field of corn surpasses any yield 1 have ever grown. John Dunn, of Brandywine Hundred, says : Yonr Poudrette is tbe very best fertilizer I have ever used aud its results are equal to if not better than bone or the high priced phosphates. I recommend its use to farmers.and confident that its results will be satisfactory to them as they have been to me. George W. Savage, of New Castle Hundred, says : I used your Poudrette on corn, wheat and vegetable«, and am satisfied that it haa increased my yield very consiberably. The low price at which it is sold brings it within tbe reach of the smallest farmer and gardener, and it ought to be tbe fertilizer used by them on all crops of grain and vegetables. I trust that you will find large sales. am George Lewis, near Christiana, says : I nsed three tons of your Pondrette, and the result has been highly satisfactory» I have the same amount of corn this year on ten acres that I had last year on eighteen acres. I also used it on my truck, and the result has been very satisfactory, giving the plant! a large growth and early start. * E. C. Stotsenburg, near Christiana, says : Having used yonr fertilizer on my corn, I consider it one of the best things to put on the hills to give tbe start of growth, and tbe earing bas been very satisfactory. I would recom mend it as a cheap and useful fertilizer. Thomas McMnllen, Port Penn, says : I nsed yonr Pondrette on my wheat and corn, and am well satisfied with the result, lieve it to be one of the best fertilizers in the market. Wm. H. Reynolds, of Psncader Hundred, says : I tried three tons of your Poudrette on my corn last spring, and am glad to be able to re port that it exceeded my expectations. I consider it the cheapest and beet fertilizer in tbe market. My corn crib is literally running over with corn. The yield where I applied the Pondrette gently exceeds that where it was not nsed, and I can therefore confidently recom mend it to farmers generally. J Samuel Broadbent, of Mill Greek Hundred, says : I used on mj corn two tons of your Poudrette. and am more than satisfied with the remit. It not only gave it a quick and strong growth, bnt increased the yield very much. I have no hesitation in recommending it to farmers as one of the hest. and T think deridadlv tbe cheapest fertiliser in the market, I be perfect system to w people 2,000 mitas if they wen hare la away person.'
