ttketctft of If In N^rvlceN.
General Joseph Hooker, commonly
known as "Fighting Joe" Uooker, died
yesterday at 5.45 p. in., at the hotel in
Garden City, L. I. He had enjoyed
fair health for some time, his chief
trouble being from lameness, lie was
stricken with apoplexy in Ins room aud
died in a few ml mites.
He had been in his usual health un
til an hour before bis death, and in
tended to go to New York to-day to at
tend to business. He gave a large din
ner party at the Garden City Hotel on
the 25th, aud seemed to be in the best
of spirit* and to enjoy social intercourse
with his many friends fully a* much as
at auy time in his life. His iutelleot
was unclouded, and, pave for his
unfortunate lameness, he would
have been as active as ever. He
took his accustomed walk in the park
during the afternoon, and did not
complain of feeling ill until about 4
o'clock, when he retired to his own
apartments, on the second floor, and
summoned his valet, Thomas Lawler,
w ho assisted him to a reclining position
upon a couch. After au hour he arose
and busied himself about his rooms un
til 5.42 p. m., when his valet, hearing
the General struggling for breath,
hastened to his side and assisted him
to lie down upon the bed, at the
time ringing the bell for help. Mr. Nick*
erson, the hotel superintendent, hur
ried to the room, hut when he arrived
General Hooker was dead.
General Hooker, who was born at
Hadley, Mass., in 1813, came of honor
able ancestry. He was a liueal de
seudant of Thomas Hooker, the Puri
tan pioneer who led the small bind of
settlers through the wilderness to found
the City of Hartford and colony of Con
necticut. In boyhood he was studious
and profited by the instructiou given
at Hopkins Academy in his native
town. In 1833 he entered the Military
Academy, at West Point, where four
years later he graduated, being second
in his class. He was promptly assign
ed to a second-lieutenancy in the ar
tillery, and after a campaign in Florida
against the Semiuoles he was chiefly en
gaged in frontier and garrison duty
until the war with Mexico, which he
entered with all the ardor of a young
soldier determined to serve his country
with fidelity and honor. He won his
brevet as captain at Monterey iu 1840,
and the year following distinguished
himself in the engagement at National
Bridge. He took part also in the
brilliant victory of Chapultepeo,
which opened to General »Scott,
the gates of the Mexican capital.
For his service on this occasion he re
oeived the brevet of lieutenant Colonel.
The war over, he was sent after a spell
of repose, to California whither the
gold seekers were then hastening in
great numbers. Here he served two
years, aud in February 1853, he retired
from the army to engage in farming.
While a resident of California he super
intended tlie National road which ex
tends through that State to Oregon.
Colonel Hooker promptly responded
to the call to arms at the outbreak of
the civil war. As soon as the guns at
Sumpter had proclaimed the conflict,
he renounced the comforts of rural
life and hastened to New York, where
h« immediately offered his services to
the Government. In that hour of
gloom his aid was heartily welcome,
aud on the 17th of May he was ap
pointed brigadier-general of volunteers.
His skill and experience were first
called iuto use in completing the de
fences of Washington, and from Decem
ber, 1801, till the March follow ing, he
was employed iu guarding the Lower
Potomac. The career of General Hooker
all through the late war was a briF
liant one and the sobriquet of "Fight
ing Joe" Hooker was no empty compli

The First Formation of Kent Comi
ty-The Peeple 108 years ago.
City Treasurer Francis' V incent has,
(to make our citizens better acquainted
with the early history of our State)
published from time to time certain ac
counts of its early affairs. In his re
searches he has fouud out Reveral er
rors of the early historians of the trans
actions on the Delaware River, and
proved in some instances what was sup
posed to be mere tradition and doubt
ed by writers of history to be matters of
fact. And in others, what was univer
sally received as true to be incorrect.
For instance, he alledges and will here
after prove) that the massacre of the
first settlers in the 8tate of Delaware
did not take place at Lewestown but on
Murderkill Creek, and that from this
tragedy it derives its name, viz • Mur
der, murder, and kill, the dutch name
for creeks or rivers.
Iu other words, Murder Itiver. Also
that the name of Whorekill was derived
as stated by tradition, from the bad
conduct of the Indian women, viz :
From whore (an old common English
word formerly nsed to denote a prosti
tute or lewd woman) and kill a creek
or river. Also that the name Brandy
wine is derived from Andrew Brandy
wine, who received a grant of land at
the mouth of that river, and net from
the wreck of a vessel loaded with
brandy and wine, as tradition relates.
Also that the Delaware wa3 not peace
ably surrendered to the English by the
Dutch as stated by historians, but that
Fort New Amstel formerly called Fort
Casimir, was stormed and b3inbarded
by the soldiers and sailors of Sir Robert
Carr's fleet, and three Dutchmen killed
and ten wounded. These are a few of
the matters he has discovered in rela
tion to early Delaware history not pre
viously known. In pursuance of this
he has Landed to us the following,
showing the first attempt at dividing
the State into three counties, which
till then was two, viz: New Castle and
Deal. He says :
"One hundred-and-ninty-eiglit yearB
ago, the citizens of Delaware residing
between the North side of Cedar Creek
and the South side of Blackbird creek,
petitioned Sir Edmund Androas to
have a court for this section of Dela
ware, held iu some convenient place
on St. Jones' creek. They wound up
their petition iu the following compli
mentary language:
"And we as in duty shall ever pray
for your honor's health and happiness.
That ages may crown your snowy hairs
with Caesar's honors, and with Nestor's
Sir Edmund Androas was the Gover
nor of the Duke of York's Territories
in America,a portion of which was Del
The New Englanders give him a
bad name. But Mr. Vincent alledges
that for Delaware he was humane,
kind and generous govimor, pardoning
nearly everybody that applied for it
from our territory. At times he se
verely rebuked the Delaware magis
trates where he thought they oppressed
the widow. At one time they ad
dressed him in this style : "You must,
not pardon so. If you do, we must re
sign our offices." He thinks the dif
ferent characters Andross bore in Dela
ware from New England, originated iu
this manner: The leading English in
Delaware were adherent aud friends of
the King.
A regiment of royal 6oldiers raised
round the royal palace of Windsor,
stormed Fort Casimire, and killed
three and wounded ten of the Dutch
soldiers. From circumstances he be
lieves they were composed of the young
er sons of the nobility and gentry
who came here as settlers—the pay of
a soldier being merely to assist them
until they procured land, &o. These
men he'd the same political aud relig
ious sentiment as Andross, and did not
vex him by opposition. As they were
all King's men and Episcopalians, the
faith of the Euglish by law and al3o of
the King and Courts. Whilst the New
Eupland-rs were Puritans and Crotn
wallians, who were in sympathy with
those who cut off the head of the former
King (the father of the then King Char
les the 2ud.) and gave protection aud
shelter to the Regicides or judges who
condemned him to death. •
It will be seen that the boundaries
applied tor the new County of St.
Jones were different from the existing
bounds of the present Kent County
which is divided from New Cattle by
Duck Creek, and from Sussex by the
Mi spill ion.

Ea.t MyUI-a Brilliant AUalr.
The ball season of 1879—80 was for
mally opened at Webster's Dancing
Academy last night by the Reliance Ac
tive Association who iaiil at the feet of
the Goddess a brilliant opening in this
their lourth annual. Long before the
hour arrived for the grand march the
spacious rooms were thronged with
friends of the Association, and when
seventy-four couple wheeled iuto line
for the opening procession at 10.10
o'clock there seemed to he about
many spectators as there were prome
uaders. The loltowing couples led the
march and directed the intricate man
ouvres with a skill aud nicety that
proved them veterans : Master of cere
muuies, Hugh W. lleasion, aud Miss
Mary A. McCaulley, lioor manager, C.
A. Mullin, and Miss Sallie Price; as
sistauts, Thomas J. Kane and Miss
Mary Mclntire, John E. Gormley and
Miss Kate Clark, John lleuraty and
Miss H. M. Gorman, Secretary James F.
Kane and Miss Jane Gill; Treasurer N.
If. Gormley aud Miss Delia Reagan.
Several new features were introduced
into the march, aud the long line of
youth aud beauty keeping time to the
musio furnished by l'rofs. Ritchie,
Worth and llyatt, formed a picture
that was highly appreciated by the on
Immediately after the procession setts
were formed and dancing commenced
in earnest, the excellent programme
arranged by the managers affording all
an opportunity of participating in a
"favorite." Shortly before the first in
termission a new quadrille was an
nounced, and the following gentlemen
of the Reliance with their ladies, who
hsd the honor of arranging the figures,
formed a set for the purpose of christen
ing it: D. A. McCullin, C. A. Mullin,
J. E. Gormley and Jas. F. Kane.
The following gents aud their ladiet
as guests of the Reliance also took part;
Jas. F. Early, M. J. McGrath, J. F.
Cannon and Edward F. Kane. The
quadrille is a beautiful oue and great
credit is due the originators for the ar
rangement of the figures and the new
dance is destined to become popular.
Its introduction last night was a suc
cess the first named parties of course
having practiced and being thoroughly
conversant with the affair went through
with it as though they were handling
an old friend, and the second set, whose
ability as excellent aud graceful dan
cers is established, although the figures
were entirely new to them, did the same
with the exception of a slight mistake
at the beginning. This mistake on their
part would hardly have been noticed
had it not been for one, who by some
accident occupied the position of first
lead and whose feet apparently contain
more sense than his cranium, so far for
getting the respect that was due to the
company he was in, as to endeavor to
jeer the party who made the slight mis
step. It was passed over, however, with,
the contempt it deserved, aud it ie
hoped that the young gentleman in
question will spend au evening or two
in the study of etiquette, ere he ven
tures again in company where polite—
uess and decency are requisite. VYe
inurt say in justice to the managers of
the ball (hat they were in no way re
sponsible for the actions of this shallow
pated individual, as their courtesj
■ ndatt.jUou to tlieir guests and dur
ng th--i tire night proved them not
uly etti dent hosts but thorough gen
lemm. During the evening refresh
ments in ahnudance were furnished;
Joseph Casti presiding over this depart
ment, and catering as only Joe can, and ■
the guests departed at an early hour
this morning .onvinced that if the ini
tiative hail is to be taken as a criterion
the coming season promises to be a bril
liant one indeed.
