The blow frightened tho horse which dasheJ off, entangling Hatchett in the bridle rein and dragged'him off a considera ble distance at full speed, lacerating the man's body in a horrible manner. The mur derer followed Hatchett up and beat him to death with a club, mashing l^f.s .skull in a frightful way. Last Thursday, in the Lind District, a woman, named Kmelinc Jones, who was a witness in a murder case, soon to come up for trial, was brutally and repeatedly out raged by ruffians and then assassinated.

RATAL COLLISION ON THE DELAWARE RAILROAD—TWO TOVNG LADS KILLED —THE CORONER'S JURY RENDER A VER DICT OF GROSS NEGLIOENCE. On Thursday evening, at six o'clock a terrible accident oceitrrcd on the Delaware railroad, near Gunn's station, which result ed in the death of two young lads, the one a negro and the other a nephew of Gov. Cochran. It appears that about half-past five o'clock, Engine 68, was detailed from Middletown to take a number of cars from Townsend to tho former place, and was rushing along at the rate of fifteen miles an hour, pass Gunn's station, a small crossing about two miles from Middletown. Just as the engine had reached tbc crossing, a team of Robert Cochrun, containing a load of peaches and drawn by a colored lad named David Brinkley was attempting to cross the railroad, but too late and the cowcatcher struck the wagon and hurled the team far out Into the road. The mules were In stantly killed and after the engine had been stopped Brinkley was found stone dead on the step of the cowcatcher, fcwttfdy crushed about tlie chest and back. A young son of Mr. Cochran and nephew of the Gov. ernor who had been seated on the baskets in the rear of the wagon had been hurled up a steep bank, at the point where the road crosses the rails, where he was found In an insensible state but still alive. He was ta ken back to Middletown along with the body of his dead companion, where every care that could be procured was furnished but he expired yesterday afternoon about four o'clock. Yesterday morning, Coroner Groves went down to Middletown and held an inquest on the body of the colored boy. Several witnesses were examined, the drift of investlgatiou being to discover whether the engineer had given the proper signal when he approached the crossing. J. Thos. Budd testified that he very distinctly heard the sharp shrill blow of the engine when she approaches! the crossing, and could not have been mistaken. Several others testified to the saiRC effect, but- Benj. Gibbs, Esq., most positively de nied that any signal had been given at the proper point. The conductor of the train did not know whether any signal had been given- or not. The engineer and fireman both were positive that the usual blow bad been made at its usual time. tL T t h TV U 7 tfKf 1 a veni , ict 1 5° 'i 1 * 5 fpK 4 that Davis Briokley came to his death by being struck by engine 08, and that the ac cident occurred through gross carlcssness on the part of the engineer, conductor and fireman in not giving the proper signal at Gunn's crossing. Coroner Groves received a dispatch yes terday afternoon that young Cochran had died at four o'clock, and will go down this morning to hold another inquest. _ The verdict of the jury is not favorably received by those who are acquainted with the circumstances, and it is certainly from what we can learn from the evidence un ust and not sustained by the evidence. The matter will be more thoroughly investiga ted JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. New houses going upon Second street, west of French. Will you just look at the boot-black's ad vertisement ?

One of the strangest mysteries in the an nals of railroad travel occurred on the P. W. & B. R. R. between Baltimore and this city on Thursday night last. At the Camden street station, when the through evening express was about to leave, an individual, whose appearance attracted some remark, entered the rear car, and af ter depositing his satchel and a few person effects upon the seat, ensconsed himself quietly beside them, and as the train glided slowly out of Baltimoife, was soon fast asleep. The express thundered along the rails and was fast approaching this city when the mysterious traveler suddenly jumped from his reclining position and walked briskly to the platform of the- car. Several of his fellow passengers noticed the abrupt movements of the stranger, and as he closed the door with a bang, a shudder of presentment seemed to pass over them. One gentleman, Mr. McCormick, who was in a rear seat, upon glancing through the glass in the door, was horrified to see a form leap from the platform and disappear Id the darkness beyond, as the train swiftly on. For some, reason the train was not stopped, hut messengers were sent back sub sequently to discover if possible the body. The train was going at the time at the rate of forty miles an hour, and instant death must have resulted when he struck the 'ground. .It is, however,.quite possible that the leap was made into Elk creek, for at the. time the train mnst have been in that vicin ity. The man's satchel, marked from Lou isville to New York, was left off at the de pot hi this city, and has since been sent to Taggart's detective office in Philadelphia. It is conjectured that the unfortunate man was in a somnambulistic state, and thus unhappily came to his fate, but others imagiuge that he committed suicide. Some of the authorities effect to disbelieve the story, but we have the facts from a most re liable source, and the satchel and effects are proof positive that it is true. *. Efforts are being made to discover the name and residence of the stranger, but as yet nothing definite has been accomplished. Altogether it is one of the most mysterious affairs on record. THEsPOLICE court pictured. rushed PBIVILIGKD CHARACTERS OF THE BENCH WHO HAVE BEEN TO THE BAR—WHAT ONE OF THESE CHARACTERS HAS TO SAY. Have you ever been in our police office and Mayor's Court ? If you have not, it is worth a visit—presuming you are too indolent, we will try to give you an insight. Come along, in fancy, with me to the east side of Market above Fifth, and as you know in a recess stands the Town Hall. To the right hand corner of the building, down a flight of stone steps, into a" square room, about eight feet below the pavement we go. The first sensation as you euter comes from tlie sharp, pungent 6mell of some disinfect ant. Dark, gloomy, damp, is the Mayor's court room. Spiders have woven silken castles in every available corner, and an op portunity to the Amateur naturalist to study the habits of many insects, is to be found in the Court room and adjoining dens—cells we mean. Railed off, in the darkest corner is the desk, chair, and dlas, where the Mayor, benevolent of face, and Aldermanic in proportion, sits enthroned in municipal majesty of his station. As far removed as possible from the enthroned dignity, a low bench runs around the damp and dark smelling walls; upon this the privileged habitues are permitted to rest. Great is the authority of those privileged ones, upon the events of the Mayor's office. With a gusto one of them gave their experience. One of them we reproduce. Path, Mr. Herald, there was a'queer fish here before you begun your paper. A woman, God help her, was brought in. Once upon a time I knew her to lie ''A lovely thing Fleet as a Falcon's wing," bm she "loved not wisely, but too well, a,ul fr « m her high estate, she sank down.

TJTJE SILVER LINING. PROSPECTS OP A REVIVAL IN BU3INR0*— THE PALL ANXIOUSLY LOOKED FOR— MERCHANTS INTERVIEWED BY TO* TRE HERALD MAN. At this season of the year In most trade* there are perceptible changes cither for the better or for the worse. Our merchant* find that the fall brings manna or down right bread and butter, and the Urgent manufactories can pretty accurately indi cate, by the pulse of their own trade, the condition of the country at large. In our city, the latter Jiranch of industry is more important than many of us imagine. Wil mington is known even at the antipoles, for* its large and unrivalled manufactories of morocco and coaches, its .iron works and powder mills, and its various establishments where specialties are carried to a degree of perfection. During the' coming hopes to give Its reads of Wilmington's Industries. The following data in point was gleaned yesterday by a reporter who called upon several represen tatives of their respective trades. , THE HABDWABE TEASE has been rather light in the city during the summer months, but Is likely to Improve as the autumn months approach. Down the ■Peninsula It Is somewhat better, and there is every Indication that the next three month will continue to increase the sales, lfr. Capelle, a prominent hardware merchant of the city, thinks it due to the cheering prospect, occasioned by the forthcoming crop of cereals. Peaches are thought to have had an im mediate effect upon all trades of t|iis kind. GROCERIES have had a brisk run for the last month, better at present than heretofore, and con stantly Improving as the Fall trade opens. The sales of Messrs. Harvey & Staler hare been proportionately better in the, country than in town, the good crops again coming in to explain the cause. Collections have been unusually good, and will, of course, continue to Improve. . Wilmington houses in this branch have a trade in Chester Co., Pa. as well as In the Peninsula below. DRY GOODS week the Herald rs a complete review beginning to puftm an increased activi ty which will reach its highest point In Oc tober. The trade is not so directly affected as groceries by any rapid improvement In the financial condition of the surroundii^ country. The movement is slower, but there Is reason to believe that it is sure. At any rate a fair local trade Is anticipated by our merchants in this business. arc THE BOOT AND SHOE TRADE Is generally'dull throughout August, and this mouth has been no exception to the rule. 8 jptember will bring a steady and live demand. October andTNovember will each Improve upon its predecessor. The business of Hats and Caps and tbit of Fur nishing Goods are circumstanced pretty much the same. THE MANUFACTORIES are, with a few exceptions, doing welU They ' are under very little local influence, work ing as they do for East and West alike. MOROCCO. Mr. Wm. Bush assures us that the trade of the whole year has been one-third below the average. At present there is no falling offer noticeable briskness. The Fall trade of course, commences long before this and includes the months of June, July and Au gust. Local demand for mordcco is small and of little importance. There appears to be little foundation for the Idea that the rain and grass-hoppers of the West can In fluence it to any degree. CARRIAGE AND COACH WORKS, • in which trade Wilmington stands ahead of any other city in the country, unless it be New Haven, Connecticut, find their demands less than usual. This is away from the lo cal market: in Wilmington if Is creasing. There is nothing definite Fall trade but it is expected wm Very large. Letters from some of th«^Southern States to one of the largest e$t44f*kments In the city affirm that as soon as the'r money is_ realized from cotton, tobacco, Ac., that Wllmingtonians may look for heavy continued work for that section. Since the first of April dealers in wheelrights, coach makers and blacksmiths' materials have found their trade fair—at present, tlie fu ture trade looks not so good. to ut the BALL AND BAT. THE ACTIVES DEFEATED BY THE TRENTON TEAM—THE QUICKSTEPS AND TRENTOK This AFTERNOON. The Reading Actives yesterday, played the Trenton nine and were badly beaten on htclr own grounds.
