Richard Harrington returned to Delaware on Wednesday and voluntarily surrendered himself to U. S. Marshal Dann for trial on the indictment now pending against him in the Supreme Court of the District of Colombia, for conspiracy against Oolnmbns Alexander in attempting to inculpate him in the cele brated safe burglary case. Harrington was given a hearing by the U. S. Commissioner, at Wilmington, who held him in $10,000 bail for bis appearance at court, his fatber in-law, Dr. Henry Ridgely, and his brother, S. M. Harrington, Esq., becoming bis sure ties. on Ratal Accident at Smyrna. J. W. Marri ner, of Smyrna, aged between 60 and 70 years, was instantly killed Tuesday morning by being run over by the engine and tender on the branch railroad running from Clayton to Smyrna. The engine was backing down the track to couple to the cars in the depot, when Mr. Marriner was on his way to his office, and crossing the track was caught, knocked down and so fearfully mangled that instant death ensued! Mr. Marriner had been for several years a Justice of the Peace,-and a leading influential member of the M. E. Church in Smyrna. I The Mexican circus. Thjs entertainment, which has been held every night for nearly a week on the open lot on the corner of Broad and Cass streets, is said by those who have visited it, to be really a first-class affitir of its kind. The acrobatic performances of the young men are said to be very fine, and to judge from the roars of laughter from the spectators, their comic per formances mast be amusing in the extreme. They are a quiet, orderly, well behaved set of people, all of one family, and are striving to make nse of the talents given them to make a living for themselves. While the price of ad mission is not high, their entertainment is said to be quite meritorious and well worth seeing. The Laurel Fair Next Weak. The third annual fair of the Laurel and Peninsula Agricultural and Mechanical Soci ety will be held next week, commencing on Tuesday and continuing four days. It prom ises te be an interesting occasion. The grounds are well fitted np and conveniently arranged for the display of good* and wares, and it is expected that the varions depart ments will all contain large and fine assort ments of goods pertaining to their several classes. The foir last year was a very suc cessful one, and the managers this year have been doing their utmost to make this one even more successful and interesting than the last one, and in so doing, they have spared neither labor nor expense. As many New Castle people as can ahonld make it a point to attend this fair in order to see and know for themselves a little of what Old Sussex is doing in the agricultural Una. Tha several parses for the 11 Trials of Speed " are well filled, there beins in all some eighty entries, some of them being among the finest trottsrs on the Peninsula. A Horrikle Death. Abont a month ago Alexander Scott, a far mer living near Cherry Hill, indulged in an exchange of horses. The horse he secured was a fine looking animal, bat at tbe time was suffering from some disease of the head. Mr. Scott believed it to be "distemper," and did not object to running the risk. About two weeks ago Mr. Scott's hand began to in flame from a alight wound on the back of it, and became in a few days a very ngly nicer, causing him a great deal of pain. Last week he became sick of a fever, and Dr. Carter was called in. He found the patient suffering from a fever, but detected nothing different from an ordinary case of intermittent fever, and prescribed tbe nsnal remedies. Dr. Carter Iwving occasion to leave home, and the fever not abating, Dr. Ellis, of Eikton, was asked to attend Mr. Scott. At Dr. E.'s first visit, last Saturday, ha prescribed for intermittent fever, having first inquired about the sore hand, and being told that it had nearly healed. The nest day, however, he found Mr. Scott suffering with a raging fever and covered with "button farcy." The disease was unmistakably "glanders," and had been communicated from the glandered horse through the break in the skin of the hand. Mr. Scott suffered the most fearful agony and delirium throughout the day, and into the night of Sunday, when death ensued. Cases of persons suffering from "glanders" are very rare, but occur often enough to remind horsemen that the proper way to deal with a horse suffering from this fatal disease is to have him killed at once. A horse may have chronic "glanders" and live a long time, keep fat and work without difficulty, yet in oculate man and beast with the deadly virus that is slowly sapping his existence.— Cecil [ltd.) Democrat. An Inpa/ut Robbery. The hotel of Sylvester Clements, Esq., at Summit Bridge, was robbed last Tuesday night under circumstances of the most im pudent and outrageous character, o'clock that night two men drove across the bridge from the northern side, and in a short time returned and hitched their horses and walked back to the southern side. They then went to Mr. Clements' house and asked for and obtained lodgings for the night and retired. In a little while after two other came to the hotel under the pretense of Abont 11 men getting drinks, and were joined by the former two from up stairs. The party then told Mr. C. that they were U. S. detectives and charg ed him with circulating counterfeit money, and seizing him, band-cuffed him and en forced silence upon him by placing a loaded pistol to his head. The bartender's room was also visited and the inmate served in the The rascals then ransacked same manner, the bouse and rebbed it of $300 in money and other valuables. Having accomplished their object they started for their teams on the other side of the bridge, but were sur prised to find the draw turned off, preventing their passage. They called to the bridge tender bat Mr. Kane's suspicions had been aroused by their above mentioned manenvres and he refused to pnt the bridge on, and finding they could not get across they left on foot. In the meantime the bar-tender suc ceeded in freeing himself from his hand-cuffs and raised affi alarm too late however to cap tore the plunderers who had made their es Mr. Clements and bis bar-tender are cape. generally the only occupants of the house which fact Seas probably known to the robbers. It has been since ascertained that two of the men hired the team in Wilmington, at Dickinson & Bro's livery stable, under the pretense of taking some ladies to New Castle. Messrs. Dickinson k Bro. at first refused to hire them the team but were induced to do so on the recommendation of Eugene Whitlock. The team was returned to its owners by Mr. Clements, on Wednesday morning. No cine has yet been obtained to the bnrgiars. THE OCTOBER ELECTIONS l DRROCRATIC VICTORIES IN INDIANA AND WEST VIRGINIA. OHIO STICKS TO HAYES I The tremendous excitement and po litical enthusiasm which has racked the states of Ohio, Indiana and West Vir ginia for some months past, culminated in one of the hardest fought election battles, on Tuesday last, that has ever taken place in this country. The con test was exceedingly close; in many districts so much so as to require the official vote to decide it. Enough, how ever, has been obtained to render it pretty certain that the Democrats have carried Indiana and West Virginia by large majorities, and the | .Republi cans Ohio, though by somewhat de creased majorities. OHIO. Nearly complete returns from Ohio indicate the election of Mr. Barnes, the republican candidate for secretary of state, by abont 3000 majority, and |the remainder of the republican ticket by majorities ranging from 3000 to 6000. Of the Congressional districts the re publicans have carried 12 and the dem ociats 8—a republican gain of 5 con gressmen. The Legislature ia also re publican. INDIANA. Returns from nearly all the counties, official or otherwise anthentic, indioate that Mr. Williams, the democratic can didate for Governor, is elected hy over 3000 majority, and the rest of the dem ocratic state ticket by between 5000 and 7500 Of the delegation in the next congress the democrats will have three member* and the republicana seven. The fourth,district is still in doubt. The republicans will have a small majority in both branches of the Legislature. WEST VIRGINIA. The entire democratic ticket is elect ed, including the three representatives in congress, by majorities ranging from 8000 to 10,000, which it is thought, will be increased, perhaps to 12,000. The democrats have a large majority of the Legislature, which will seoure the elect ion of two democrats to the U- S. Sen ate to supply the places of Senators Davis (term expired) and Caperton (de ceased. Nervous Debility.

To the Public : To accommodate our growing manufactur ing interests we have built large additions to our Buildings in Smyrna where we will short ly remove onr shoe machinery. From this some have inferred that we wonld relinquish oar RETAIL Boot and Shoe trade here. We gratefully acknowledge a generous support from this community, and assure them that the STORE will be continued, and, by em ploying cheap home labor and home-tanned leather and morocco, make a shoe that will give the mest wear and comfort for tbe least money. Our stores require the labor of about twenty-five persons throughout the year, and keep abont $15,000 at home that would other wise go to prosper some other locality. We have made some mistakes, all manufacturers will, but we shall use materials of known su periority in the several grades of our shoes hereafter. We are supplying most of tbe best trade around Smyrpa and here, and filling orders from many of DeHaven's farmer cus tomers all over the Peninsula. We will give you an exhibition of Boots and Shoes of our own make at the coming FAIR, and will ask a verdict and a continuation of yonr patron age. Very respectfully, R. M. A W. T. JOHNSON. jWowa, iwOTarc, fo. MIDDLETOWN STOVE HOUSE MIDDLETOWN, DELAWARE.
