A False Charge.
Tb» «charge made by a negro wnman at

Kane, an acconnt of which has been publish
ed in tbe Wilmington papers, tnrns out to be
a base libel. Mr. Kane is in tbe employ of
tbe P. Wi 4®. R. R. Co., on the Delaware
line, as a bridge bnllder, and when the charge
was made tbe officials ofthe company at once
sent men to inquire into tbe matter, and af
ter a thorough investigation tbsy pronounced
tbe whole thing a lie, and other things since
brought to light go to prove that the charge
was gotten np for the purpose of blackmail.

Dead In the Street.
A grey mare belonging to Henry Gray,
colored, of Odessa, was taken with the colic
last Sunday afternoon, and after being dosed
by Hr. Harvey, ran out of Odessa toward
Middletown, and followed tbe carriage of
Frank P. Cochran into town. She showed
no signs of sickness for some time after,
when it was noticed that she was trembling
violently. Some gentlemen tried to pnsb ber
down in front of Mr. H. D. Howell's, and
finally succeeded in doing ao, when she died
instantly. It is supposed that if she had not
been pushed down, the mfcre would have
dropped dead before making an attempt to
lie down. Quite a large crowd congregated

Burglary •* Delaware City.
On Wednesday night, the 16th inst., the
house of Mr. Clement Reeves, of Delaware
City, was entered by three burglars, and
robbed of all his best clothing and thirty
firs dollars in money which they took from
his pocket book-lying on the bureau. They
are supposed to have been professional burg
lars from some large city, disguised while in
the village as tramps looking for work.
There is a mystery connected with this rob
bery. It appears that Mr. Reeves does not
nsnally earry money with him, keeping it in
bank, bnt he bad at the time stated just
drawn out $35 to go to the Centennial with.
The robbers, seem to have knowa this. They
also helped themselves to some cantelopes

On Monday night some light-fingered ras

purloin, and carry off various wares and

bacco, 8egar8, Ac., to the amount of $100 or
$200 worth. The door was fonnd locked in
tbe morning, as aiual, and how tbe burglars

ever, that they either possessed a key or
climbed in throngh b second story window.
On tbe Saturday night previous the dwei

A Town OHlccr at but
Middletown bas at last succeeded in getting
a policeman, thanks to the energy of our pre
sent Board of Commissioners. Mr. Horn,
the president of the Board, went to Wilming
ton last week, and through the assistance of
Sheriff Lambson, secured the services of L.
Woodward, who now patrols onr streets
clothed in the authority symbolized by the
blue dress and star, and whensoever the rag
ing peach-pluck gets on the rampage and
breaks the ordinances and laws of the corpo
ration, his ravings are suddenly brought to a
close, and be finds himsslf being gently trans
ported to the cells beneath the hall, there to
stay until his benzine ardor has cooled off.
In this way thirty-one of them have
been furnished with gratis lodging by
our générons authorities this week, three of
whom, being rather more obstreperous than
their brothers, were, on Wednesday, trans
ferred to the larger mansion of Sheriff Lamb
son, there to remain until they can either
give bail for future good behavior, or are re
leased on other equally as good grounds.
Last Saturday night, for the first time on
that night in many weeks, good order pre
vailed, and the residents of the Square were
not kept awake half the night by the yell
ing and swearing of disorderly tramps and
negroes. These latter are a worse nuisance
than the tramps ever were, and there can
possibly be no good reason for allowing them
to collect in crowds upon the street corners,
clutting up the sidewalks, and subjecting
passers to the annoyance of working their
way as best they can through them. This
thing has been put up with entirely too long,
and if the present authorities will break it up
and make the negroes qnit blockading the
streets and behave themselves as white ci
tizens do, they will be entitled to, as they
will receive, the gratitude of all order and
peace loving citizens.
Accident on tbe P. W. Si B. Railroad.
A very serious and destructive accident oc
curred at Stemmer's Run, nine miles
north of Baltimore, on this railroad, early on
Wednesday morning. The early freight train
from Wilmington broke an axle when near
that station and was thrown from the track,
causing the wreck of several of the freight
cars, two " gondolas," and two new pas
senger cars, which were on their way to
Virginia, for use in that State. The wrecked
cars were set on fire by the upsetting and
bursting of a coal oil lamp, and several of
them entirely consumed, as there were no
means at hand of extinguishing*tbe flames.
While the track was obstructed with the de
bris of this wreck, the north-bonnd freight
came along, and seeing the trouble, stopped,
and all bands went to work to assist in clear
ing the track. While tbe freight was thus
delayed upon tbe track, the 6.25 a. if. ex
press from Baltimore came dashing along,
unaware of the accident, and at too high a
rate of speed to be stopped in time to prevent
a collision. The consequence was,
ACCIDENT NO. 2.
The express ran into tbe rear car of tbe
freight, tearing off its smoke stack, and
otherwise damaging it, and smashing four of
the freight cars into atoms.
By these two accidents several persons
were considerably hurt—mostly employes of
the road, though none, it is hoped, seriously.
Of these were Mr. James Shoen and his
brother, who were in charge of the cars for
Virginia ; Jag. T. Gordon and Clem. Biddle,
engineer and fireman of the express tcain ;
W. T. Abercrombie, agent of the Baltimore
News Company; Thos. Streets, agent of
Adams' Express Company ; and T. T. Wal
ters, of Stemmer's Run.
Mr. James Shoen, who was injured by the
first accident, was tightly fastened in between
the timbers, and as the car, in which he was,
took fire, he must have perished, had not a
tramp, who had been stealing a ride on the
train, burst open the car window and
dragged him out; and now he says he shall
hereafter have more respect for tramps, as he
owes his life to one of them. There was quite
a number of tramps on the train, and when
the accident occurred some went to work to
assist in restoring order, while others broke
open and tried to steal boxes of merchandize.
Two of these latter were arrested and sent to
the county jail.
The total loss to the Company was some

Or Keller's Patent, [The Best]
GRAIN, SEED and FERTILIZER
The only Drill that will positively dis
tribute properly all kinds of Grain,
Seed and Fertilizers.
A few of the points of superiority of this
Drill over all others, are :
1st —Force Feed Arrangement for Sowing
Grain, consisting of one gum and one iron
roller—which is really the only force feed ar
rangement made—giving you an even and
regular distribution of grain at all times. Can
sow any amount of grain, from a peck to two
2d —The Patent Spring Hoes, having gum
springs on end of Drag-Bar, (being the only
perfect gum-spring arrangement) thereby
doing away with the old wooden brake-pins,
and allowing the Drill to pass any obstruc
tion that the axle will go over without inter
fering with working of Drill.
3d —The Patent movable or sliding Fulcrum
of Spring Bar fer sowing the grain deep
shallow, is an improvement not possessed
anÿ other drill.
4th —The Patent shield for covering the. Gear
wheels, to prevent clogging or cramping with
weeds, cornstalks or accumulation ofgrit and
gravel, which make a Drill run heavy, is a
needed improvement over all other drills.
5th —The Land Surveyor is as correct as it
is possible to make one, having one fadl show
ing 1-16 acre, and another face registering
6th— The Patent Axle is so constructed that
the bearings are all on the outer and inner
jarts of Spindle, causing the Drill to run
ighter to tbe team, and more steady, than if
bearing was all on center of spindle.
7th— All we can say for the Patent Guano
or Fertilizer Attachment is that it is the only
one that will sow or distribute properly all
kinds of fertilizers in all conditions.
The Best also has a Patent Hoe Shifter, by
which the Boots can be changed from straight
to zigzag line, or vice versa, while seeding
along. Tbe Grass Seed Attachment is perfect.
In fact, it would be impossible to give all the
good and superior points possessed by this
Drill, without occupying too much space.
Suffice it to say, our Drill is just what is
claimed for it —the best —and has no equal.
