St. Anne's School.
The teachers and pupils of this school (the
semi-annual examinations being brought to a
close this week), repaired on Thursday to the
Rectory ground, adjoining the old church,
and forgetting, for the time, the toils of the
school-room with its fractions nnd its French,
its grammar and its Greek, gave themselves
up to singing and swinging, rolling and
strolling, croquet playing, spring chickens,
ice cream and holiday joys in general.
Among the interesting features of the occa
sion was the presentation, with an appropri
ate speech by the Rev. Mr. Bntler, of a very
handsome silver medal of henor to Miss Alice
W. Wood, for nearest approximation to the
highest standard set up by the school.
The medal was manufactured by the Gor
ham Silver Co., of New York, and showed
on one side the inscription "St. Anne's
School, Middletown, Delaware, Sessions—
1875-1876," and, on the reverse, "Alice W
Wood. Finis coronatopus. Medal of Honor.'
Other pupils received well won rewards.—
And after a summer's vacation both teachers
and pupils will be ready for new and harder
work.

Incidents of a Thunder Storm.
During the heavy rain on Monday after
noon of last week the stable of Mr. Sewell C.
Biggs was struck by lightning knocking the
whole gable end of it out, tearing several of
the doors off, and shattering a shed badly
that was against the stable, and fortunately
without setting it on fire, although there were
about two tons of hay in the building at the
time it happened.
There were no horses in the stable at the
time the accident occurred. Three negroes
were lying in the entry of the stable asleep at
the time it was struck, who were badly fright
ened, one of them supposing that Mr. David
son, the gentleman for whom they worked,
had shot him, and after he had thought
for a moment he could not tell what be had
shot him for, the other one thought the
witches were after him, and the third one
came running out of the entry becking with
his hand for Mr. Biggs' son to come down to
the barn that witches or something else were
tearing the boards off of the stable. Mr.
Biggs bad tbe stable repaired at a small ex
pense. Mr. Wm. Houston, on an adjoining
farm, had one of his horses killed in the field
on the same afternoon by lightning. A. B.

Tbe Fourth of July.
Mr. Reynolds, please insert the following :
Will the buying public be kind enough to
do their shopping and make their purchases
for the Fourth on Monday July 3d, so that
the merchants of Middletown can close their
stores on Tuesday the Forth, and not be
obliged to "keep one eye open" as has been
the case during the past hundred years, to
accommodate a few customers who never buy
an article until they are ready to use it. We
intend to give our clerks holiday on that day,
and some of us being bachelors would like to
go courting and the married men to spend tbe
day with their families.
The Foment at Elkton. —The citizens of
Elkton, Md., at a recent meeting, decided to
celebrate the Fourth of July in a becoming
salute o The day is to be ushered 'in by a
manner.f thirteen guns and the ringing of all
tbe bells in the town at sunrise ; at 6 o'clock
the Groome Guards will parade, and at 10
o'clock the citizens will assemble in front of
the court-house, where the Declaration of In
dependence will be read by Robert C. Thack
eray, to be followed by the reading of a his
torical sketch of Cecil county by Hod. James
McCullough. An oration will also be de
livered, and at night there will be a display
of fire works.
A Merchant.
Lippincott's Magazine fob Jdly— begin
ning a new volume—commends itself to par
ticular notice by tbe appropriateness of its
leading contributions. Besides the regular
article on the Centennial Exhibition, and a
"Glimpse of Philadelphia in July, 1776," by
Mrs. Rebecca Harding Davis, both hand
somely illustrated, there is a long Centennial
poem, entitled "Psalm of the West," by
Lidney Lanier, which contrasts most strik
ingly with the conventional odes usually asso
ciated with such occasions. Written in a
great variety of metres, and presenting a
series of vivid historical pictures, it is at
once both epic and lyrical. As a thoroughly
national poem, original in conception and not
less powerful in execution, there is nothing in
our literature to compare to it. The first of
a series of papers on "The Eastern Shore of
Maryland," by Rev. Robert Wilson, will be
welcomed not only for the information it
gives respecting the resources of a region that
is now attracting immigration, but for its
graphic descriptions and amusing anecdotes.
Mrs. Hooper's account of "The Markets of
Paris" is a readable paper on a capital sub
ject, and an "Episode of the Revolution" is a
curious and romantic bit of family history,
in which several of the most notable person
ages of the period figure more or less promi
nently. In fiction we have the concluson of
"Leam Dundas," and of Edward Kearsley's
"Thee nnd You," with its strong dramatic
incidents set in the quaint surroundings of
Quaker manuers ; besides an agreeable little
story of Anglo-Italian life, "The Rainbow of
the Termini." Lady Barker continues her
vivid leteers from South Africa, and the
Monthly Gossip has its usual complement of
varied and sprightly matter .

Samuel J. Tilden.
The Democratic nominee for the Pre
s iJ e ncy was born in 1814 at New Leba
non, Columbia county, New York. .
jjj s ancestry is traced back to 1585,
w hej> a John Tilden was mayor of Ten
terden, England. A branch of the
' family moved to Scituale, Massachu
se tts, in 1634, and a Joseph Tilden
of the London merchants who
ou j the Mayflower. Gov. Tilden's
lnot her was desceuded of Wm. Jones,
Lieutenant Governor of the colony of
New Haven, who is said to have been
a son of Col. John Jones, a regicide
judge of Charles I, who married Oliver
Cromwell's sister. The Governor's
father was a fanner and merchant,
much esteemed for his judgment and
strong common sense, and who was an
intimate and chctishcd friend of Presi
was one
dent Van Buren.
Gov. Tilden entered Yale College
when he was eighteen years old, after
at that early age having written a dis
quisition on the effort to make a coali
tion between the national republicans
and the anti-Masons, tbe defeat of
which was necessary to democratic suc
This disquisition was shown to
Van Buren, who highly approved it,
and caused it to be published as a cam
paign document. After his collegiate
coarse he studied law in the office of
tbe late John W. Edmunds, New York
city, and while there published
of papers in advocacy of \ au Buren s
recommendation of a separation of the
government from tho banks, the estab
lishment of an independent treasury and
the redeemability of government cur
rency in specie.
Upon his admission to the bar he
opened an office in Pine street, New
In 1844, in connection with
John L. O'Sullivan, he founded the
Daily News newspaper.
elected a member of the Assembly
for New York city, and a member of
the convention to remodel the State
constitution. In both of those bodies
he was a conspicuous authority.
In this and similar efforts he proved
himself pre-eminent in the work of re
form—of reform in its fundamental
principles and radical value. And on
this recognition of his ability in that
direction he was elected Governor of
New York—the position he now occu
pies—by a large majority. In that high
office he at once inaugurated a cleans
ing of the Augean stables of New York
plunderers. The immense frauds per
petrated by mismanagement of the
canals, and similar fraudulent jobberies,
were fully unearthed by him, and have
been scorched, if not killed.
In 1846 he withdrew from active
politics and devoted himself to his pro
fession, and soon became as pre-emi
nent therein as he had been in the
political arena. One of his most not
able legal triumphs was as counsel for
the heirs of Dr. Burdell. who was mur
dered, and whose property was claimed
by Mrs. Cunningham, who was charged
with his murder and acquitted, hut who
claimed Dr. Burdell's property as his
alleged wife. The case passed into
legal history as a most notable trial,
and the defeat of the iniqnilons claim
was due mainly to Mr. Tilden's able
handling of the case.
Among his other prominent successes
at the bar was his defense of the Penn
sylvania Coal Company in its suit with
the Delaware & Hudson Canal Com
pany, in which immense interests were
involved. Another was that of the
Cumberland Coal Company against its
directors, tried in Maryland in 1858
In that case he applied for the first time
to the directors of corporations the
familiar doctrine that a trustee cannot
be a purchaser of property confined to
him for sale, and he successfully illus
trated and settled the equitable princi
ple on which such sales to directors are
set aside, and also the conditions to
give them validity. These cases brought
him into great prominence as a success
ful resuscitator of embarrassed corpora
tions, aud gave him a lucrative practice.
He urged that the war should be con
ducted upon a system of sound finance,
so as to prevent monetary complications
which be foresaw. And when invited
by the government at Washington to
to give his opinion as to the conduct of
the war, he said : You have no right
to expect a great military genius to
come to your assistance. They only
apoear once in two or three centuries.
You will probably have to depend
upon the average military talent of the
country. Under such circumstances
your only course is to avail yourself of
your numercial strength and your
superior military resources resulting
from your greater progress in industrial
arts and your greater producing capaci
ties. You must have reserves and
concentrate your forces on decisive
points, and overwhelm your adversaries
by disproportionate numbors and re
serves." •
Gov. Tilden made every effort in his
power to avert the late civil war. But
failing in this he made no secret that
his convictions were in favor of the in
tegrity of the Union and supremacy of
tbe constituted authorities. Therefore
he urged the North to be conciliatory
and forbearing, and advised the South
to defer to the will of the majority, and
to respect that federal constitution under
whose ægis was assurance of full pro
tection for person and property. When
tbe blast of war came, a'nd Lincoln
called out the famous 75,000, Mr. Til
den maintained that the call should
have been for 500,000 men, beeaue he
believed a great war was imminent,and
a large force necessary in the very inter
ests of humanity In the ligjt of sub
sequent events it is evident that the
adoption of his views would have saved
much carnage and devastation.
His advice was not taken, but he had
the satisfaction within a year after it
was given, of hearing the Secretary of
War acknowledge its wisdom and
lament his inability to secure its adop
tion.

THINK FOR YOURSELF«
Thousands lead miserable lives, suffering
from dyspepsia, a disordered stomach and
liver, producing biliousness, heartburn, cos
tiveness, weakness, irregular appetite, low
spirits, raising food after eating, and often
ending in fatal attacks of fever. They know
they are sick, yet get little sympathy. The
unfailing remedy, which is yearly restoring
thousands, is DaCosta's Radical Cure, sold by
C. Anderson, Druggist, Middletown.
A 25c. bottle will convince you of its mer
its. Don't delay another hour after reading
this, bntgp and get a bottle, and your relief
is as certain as you live. Will you do it, or
will you continue to suffer ? Think for your
self!
Professor Parker's Pleasant Worm Syrup
is perfectly safe and extremely palatable.—
No physic required. Costs 25 cents Try it.
