I in consequence of the prosecutor be ling unable t<» speak English, an Italian was sworn to act. as interpreter, but it was not long before the fact was made evident that he could not speak or un derstand English much better thau the witness himself. It was shown, however, that the wit ness and a number of others were ployed on the Philadelphia & Balti inort- Railroad, about two and a half miles from this city. On the day when the assault was made, the wit ness was at .work, when ho w preached hy some seventy men who told him they had quit work ou account of not getting enough wages. * They told the witness that he must also quit, and upon his refusing, one of the prisoners, who haindeutified, struck him in the mouth knocking him down ; he picked up a stone, which was takeu away from him by the crowd,and he was then stabbed in the arm and beaten :as soon as lie could getaway from the men he ran in a shanty and they sent away. He hail never seen the men before that day, and did uot know them by name. Mr. Harrington cross-examined the witness at considerable length, and eu lesvured to show that the day on which the assault was committed was 1 feast day in the Gatholic Church, of which the whole party tnd that the witness hail agreed to itop work on that day, buFfailed to J.ilm.l.

There was beme sixty or seventy in the crowd, and lhe identified two of the prisoners as be pnitauiong the number. I Both of these witnesses wero subject led to a severe cross-examination by Mr. [Harrington, but did not deviate from [their direct testimony. Thomas J. Sommers was sworn, anil [testified that he is employed on the k"ad, but was not present when the ptoault was committed. While these hntnmes were being examiued one of she prisoners, who seemed very much wiuti d, became so pale that the uel.ow hue of his skin disappeared, and he ended by falling over insensible, pnd would no doubt have landed on phe U«K)r had he not been caught by P®bf ids companions.

At half half pant five o'clock Rich ard Spittal way brought Into Court be tween two bailiffs,carrying tbeominous black ami red etavee. He 1* a very respectable looking yonng man, below the medium heigth, somewhat pale from hie imprison ment, and about the last person one would take for a criminal. There" was an almost breathleae silence when Clerk Cochran said : " Richard Spittal, stand np and raise your right hand.'' The prisoner obeyed, and the long In dictment charging him with the mur der of George Christopheren was read to him In a solemn manner. At the con clusion the clerk asked him: " How say you, Richard Spittal, are you guilty In manner and form as indicted, or not guilty ?" During the reading William O. Whiteley, Esq., one of the counsel for the prisoner, stood leaning on the front of the dock close to hie client, and when the Clerk bad concluded he In structed him to answer " not guilty," which he did In a firm voice. Clerk Cochran then asked the usual question : " How will you be tried?" and upon Spittal answeriug"I<y God and my country /'responded,"and may God give you a aafe deliverance." The prisoner wuh then taken from the room and the Court directed the Crier to ad jouru uutil 10 o'clock this morning. dust previous to the adjournment, State's Attorney Gray Informed Mr. Whiteley that he proposed to try case on next Friday, and Mr. Whiteley said he would ho ready if ho was able to have his witnesses present. It is scarcely probable that the case will be reached before next week, as the rules tn the Water Commission are made re turnable on Thursday, and no doubt all that day and part of the next will be consumed in argument. 3 to in to ton in In he my a that St. " _ but ly ball, the A pure strengthening tonic, free from whisky and alcohol, cures dyspepsia and similar diseases.

Dr. Bessels advised against seuding another relief exj edition this season, " as to semi ould only en danger the loss of another vessel and the lives of its crew without any pros pect of great gain." The doctor said that " it is not at all probable that a vessel could reach the mouth of Smith's Sound this season, although it might reach Upernavik." If Lieutenant Greely reaches Uperna vik be wlli lie perfectly safe, and can j brought away from there next sea son; while if he does uot reach that place nothing will b»* gamed by sending a vessel that far, as it can go no further, and nothing can he done from there to aid Greely." A final decision iu the matter will probably be reached to-day. It is said Greely will have enough food to last his party through the winter. 1 A Few More Left. And a happy circumstance it is, too, that notwithstanding the rapidly in creasing demand for Hunt's Remedy, there are a tow more bottles left. This is, indeed, joyful news for tho afflicted. People are beginning to find out that they have kidneys, aud that weakness of the hark and loins, and many sup posed rheumatic pains, corue from those delicate organs, and may be precursors of serious troubles like Bright's Disease, and of death. People are also finding out that the sure specific for all ailments of the liver, bladder and kidneys is Hunt's Remedy, and hence the great, and increasing demand. And still we are able to say of the bottles of this great remedy, there are "a few more left.

Sullivan, wan in town to day, looking in excellent con dition and apparently a consistent tein e srance man. When he returned to OHton this evening he was accompa nied by Slade, who in to go with him on hia Western trip. " Mace baa released Slade from his contract to him," said the champion, "and Slade will start out with 'The John L. Sullivan Combination,' which will open in Baltimore on October 20. We shall go through the West to San Francisco and Oregon, returning over the Northern Pacific and taking in Buf falo and Rochester on our setum. We will appear one night in Madison Square Garden. We shall be gone four mouths. During this tour every man who wants to meet me with the gloves can have the chance, and those who esteem themselves will never have a better show, for I will offer $250 to any body who will, during this trip, meet meat sparriug and stand up during four rounds. They won't need to leave home, for I'm going around anil will take them all in. Besides that, l shall put up medals and cups for the contestsbetweeu local boxers in each town. When the tour is finished 1 projtose to go home, for my saloon business there is worth ding to. I have to keep two policemen constantly before the door to keep the way clear, and my poorest day's receipts have been $41)6. On tbe day I opeued I took in more than $2,1)00, and on another single day I took in over $2,300. I may go to Europe by and by, but haven't made up my mind. There isn't much use of my going, excep country, for I've inet all tn« pious over here. The only one that has ever been of any account whom I haven't met. is Greenfield, and I under stand he is get not of much g from Sheriff, the Prussian, who wants to meet me for $1,000. That is too thin. He wants to meet me somewhere where he would get the benefit of my reputa tion and receive $4,000 or $5,000 for put ting up liiN hands. If lie wants to meet me in New York he must put up $5,000, and I will cover it. " The fact is," continued the slug ger, *• I will never fight auy more in the ring with naked fists. I have al together retired from the prize ring and will use boxing-gloves. I can't afford to take any risks in the Peni tentiary. The best man, the man who will stand up the best of anybody I have met is Slade, and I like him. I consider him a decidedly better man than Mitchell, and Mitchell is a smart little man, hut he don't care to meet Slade. Mitchell has one hand au<l Slade has two. Mitchell you know can't use his right to any extent worth mentioning. He has a cunning fellow liehind him in Madden. You know I picked Madden up in the streets of Bos ton when he hadn't a cetr and put him in the way of earning all he's ever got. In that. Slade-Mitchell matter he saw he was going to lose his $2,500 and in my opinion put up the entire scheme to prevent the match. I consider Madden a hippodromer." " Is it on account of private enemies that he didn't waut to go to New Or leans ? " " Well, how did he make so many private enemies ? Let him answer that. 'Sullivan is not popular iu New Orleans.' I have just had an in vitation and a very fiatteriug offer to appear there." *• l will manage to let the people St. Louis and Chicago see Sullivan, in spite of their laws," said A1 Smith. " In St. Louis Sullivan will probably pitch a game of base ball. I have been _ 1 nfty-ft ve |>er cent, of the receipts, but am stiteking for a better fi ure. In Chicago he has been invited by the Athletic Club and by the press general ly to go on the stage and hit a swinging ball, such as pupils practice with ac cording to the Marquis of Queeusbury rnles." i 1 can atten t to see the eir chain j old and stale and is I have had a letter I of for i in l>een He was noon iu bars ed prize F. at The the the tion. his The at to over, kept all ed ed of V B\ oftonil E Panic Among Prisoners. 8t. Louis, September 18.—George Breckenridge's Phoenix planing mill, a large fourstory brick building on the corner of Spruce and Twelft h streets, took fire at 6.30 p. in., ami in an hour its contents, valued at $180,000, on which there is an insurance of $50,000, were totally destoyed. Across Spruce street stands the southern wall of the city jail, where during the progress of the fire a panic of extraordinary nature took place among the prisoners, nearly two hundred in number. The roof of the jail consists mainly of a monster skylight, through whose panes the earliest light of tbe fire showed plainly. Suddenly a shower of sparks fell upon the skylight, aud the roof of the burning building fall ing in at this time the stream filled the whole jail and almost seemed to justify the cry which went up from the female prisoners that the jail was on fire and that they would be burned light 0 to alive nuleax releaaed. The jailer did Ida beat to quiet their fearH, hut a pan of the fence catching tire at thia Juncture the engluea played upon it and the wcll-underatood aounil wan accepted hy the prlaouera aa a proof that they were Indeed locked up in a burning building. Then ensued a panic which Imfnea description. The women coiuple ely lout their aelf-contro! mailing wildly about in their cells and begging piteously to lie taken to a place of safety. Some of them falling upon their knees and stretching their arma through the bar spaces clasped hands and prayed the jailer to open the cell doors. Tlie men were hardly less panic stricken, and the cry which the whole IxMly of prisoners set up and maintained for several minutes was appalling. At one mouieut it Heemed to the jailer as if the jail was actually threatened, and he aud Ids deputies began to take neces sary precautions for a removal of his prisoners without thu loss of any of them, and when this wtqt seen the clamor, which had subsided tor a few moments, broke out again, with more vigor than ever. Ail efforts to bring the thoroughly-terrified prisoners into subjection ware unavailing, and it was only when they were physically unable to sustain vocal exertion that they de sisted. Tlie extraordinary scene was almost an identical repetition of the one which took place when the same mill was burned down a year ago. ere n' order city to gives the road tickets Hion sons take visit late P. curslon iot lee A Sure Sign.

By noon there was a good attendance aud the after noon arrivals added to the number. erybody seemed to enjoy themselves iu their own way.

Two of them had a clean track, but the other two came together,one of them pitching headlong over his one wheeled vehicle, skinning a shin by the opera tion. The other racer left him rubbing his shin, and picking up liis barrow shafts hurried on out to the end con siderably behind the two in advance. The fouled racer grew very indignant at tbe laughter of the crowd,and wanted to demolish the man who toppled him over, but lie fore he got an opportunity he got iu a good humor, and laughed heartily at his misfortune. Several similar races were run. The mauling machine was largely pa trouiznl, anil the wheel of fortune was kept spinning around at a lively rate all day.

Ijjjil THE OPENING YESTERDAY - CREDITABLE DISPLAY OF EX. HI BITS—THE RACE*. at. E. E. Special Correspondence of the Republican. Middletown, Del., .Sept. 13, 1883. —The tenth annual exhibition of the Peninsular Agricultural and Pomologi cal Association opened at the fai § rounds this morning, with rather ; iscouraging outlook, as tbe sky was overcast with clouds, which threatened a storm. About 2 o'clock, however, the clouds began to break away and by 5 o'clock the sun came out in all its bright ness, which made the hearts of the mana gers rejoice, for with fine weather the fair promises to be a success. On account of the threatening weath er rlie attendance to-day was much aller than it otherwise would have been, and only about 300 persons, all told, were on the ground. If the weath er is favorable to-morrow and Thursday the attendance will no doubt be very large. When the exhibition opened this morning but few exhibits were in posi tion, and the attendants were busily en gaged in arranging them in a proper manner, and by evening everything was in good shape for the sight-seers, who will be present during the next two days. The exhibits this year are not as large as they were last season, but the display is a creditable one, especially in fbe agricultural, live stock, farm machinery and fancy work. A glimpse at the poultry display showed some of the finest varieties known ;n this part of the country, in which were a trio of silver spangle Hamburg chickens, golden spangle bantams and Hamburgs, black Spanish chickens, white bantams, golden Po lands, and white tiles. Several fine specimen ducks were in this section, among which were noticed the Roan ducks, white dorkings ami the common duck. A pair of fine large Bremen geese attracted considerable attention. A cage containing several varieties of pigeons, a box with Beadle rabbits, and a hound with pups were also numbered among the exhibits. In the same bui.ding may be seen samples of fine timothy and clover seed, rye, winter and spring oats,wheat,corn, white wheat, field peas, buckwheat, field beans, red wheat, cabbage, etc.,all of which was of the finest quality and quite a credit to the farmers of New Castle and Kent Counties, where most of it was grown. The display of potatoes was very large and varied, comprising the following varieties : Mouth pearl, Chili white, early rose, Burbank, white elephant, belle, Watson seedling, ueerlesa, mammoth, pearl, late rose, early Vermont, sun of the valley, white garnet Chili, snowfiake, white star, victor, Burbank seedling, beauty of Hebron, white peach blow, and others. Some large eclipse, mangle wortzel table and sugar, beets, turnips,parsnips, Butman squashes, purple egg-plant, to matoes, beans of different varieties, onions, cellery, etc., were displayed in this department. Also several im mense sunflowers, a large display of umpkins, sample hops, eggs, and a ushel of English walnuts, which were grown in Middletown. The exhibit of corn was fair and comprised western mixed, yellow Hint, Hickman, leaning, buker, yellow gourd seed and pop corn. A quautity of sample meal from Baden corn, together with some mixed corn, moustail citron melons and cheese and pumpkins, comprised the exhibits in this department. CARRIAGES, STOCK, ETC. McLear and Kendall, carriage build ers of your city, make a creditable dis play of light carriages. Their exhibit consists of nine wagons of various styles, such as jump seats, pb.Ttons, end spring and spar buggies, all of which are gotten up in a good style,and will no doubt meet with ready sale be fore the fair doses. Beckett and Mackey, of Smyrna, Del., also made a display of carriages, and their exhibit is much admired. It consists of a jump seat carriage, two spar buggies, and an end spring. The buggies have plain wheels, manufac tured by Wm. and H L. Wood, of Wilmington, and are painted black with neat stripe, and trimmed with blue cloth and brown leather. They stand a fair chance for first premium, firm from Salem, N. J., also exhibits a carriage. William and H. L. Wood, of your city, made a display of fine carriage wheels, having four sets of plain wheels and a set of fine buggy wheels nicely finished and hooped. These wheels, after being finished, are varnished ami ready for use. They are being largely used by carriage makers. In tbe stock department there was a fine exhibition of thoroughbred cows, bulls, heifers, horses, pigs, sheep, etc., the most conspicuous being a thorough bred Jersey bull and Jersey cow, the latter four years old, and a fine Alder uey heifer. In the agricultural display E. H. Mc Whorter, of your city, displays a cham pion binder and other farm machinery. E. W. Dawson, of Smyrna, exhibits a patent hedge trimmer, and R. A. Moo dy, of Delaware City, a large farm wa gon. An Osborne self-binding harvest er and a large lot of other farm ma chines were on the grounds in full ope ration. In the fancy goods department the display was very fine, but as the goods were not arranged at the opening of the fair no special mention could be made. Samuel Speak man, agent for the Sin ger Sewing Machine, had three ma chines 011 exhibition. THE RACKS. The heavy rain which passed over some portions of the State on Monday night was very light in Middletown.* and just enough fell to lay lhe dust ana make everything pleasant, consequent ly the track was in excellent condition, and the races to-morrow aud Thursday promise some interesting trials of speed. The races to-day started off with a run ning trial for a society purse of $100. There were three entries, and two start ed ; sorrel horse Gale, owned by K. T. O. Crouch, Klkton, Md., and bay horse Fearless, owned by F. B. Ford, of the same town. The trial was a mile dash, and was won with apparent ease by Fearless, in 1 55%.

This horse is a bad breaker, and by this lost the raoe, for when she broke she would fall way behind before she recovered her feet, and Charlie L. won the three next beats and the race.

Ike Shultz won the next two heats without much difiiculty and was award ed the race. Time 2.35%, 2,33 %, 2,34. May Flower second money, and third and fourth money equally divided be tween 1 he other two. It was nearly seven o'clock before ihis race was com pleted and only sporting men were on the grounds. The races passed off nice ly and the attendance to-morrow promi ses to be large. In order to accommodate persons in Wilmington and between that point and Middletown the P. W. & B. Rail road Company will run a special train every evening during the fair, which will leave the fair grounds at 7 o'clock, thus affording ample time for every body to witness the races. The pro gram for Thursday is a good one, and the attendance should be large. A Caution to Wives. Falsehood is one cf the gravest crimes in the terrible list of human delinquen cies, for not only does it corrupt and ultimately destroy the individual, but diffuses around a noxious vapor that injures all who come within range of its destructive qualities. In it ig so repulsive that the wife who outrages this law of her nature debases her mind, destroys her husband's fidence in her integrity, and in time become so contemptible in his eyes that his affection totally disappears. " Can the husband," it is asked, "ever look again with perfect satisfaction on the countenance of his wife after the fin*t falsehood had polluted her lips? Alas, no! A barrier has been broken down, and the waves of sin and sorrow roll in upon their paradise of domestic enjoy ment. - EX. 1883. the fai ; was the 5 the all very this en are live Po fine of a Sheboygan, Wis.— I)r.
