From an early ^jiour this morning hundreds of people lounged around the magnificent structure and up to six o'clock p. m., it was estimated that over thirty thousand visitors entered including all classes, from the boot-black to the wealthy merchant. The ladies were by no means in the minority, hundreds of them lined the corridor and eagerly inspected every availa ble spot of the building, expressing their approbation. Some of the merchants who do a large business also paid a visit to the buinding and state it is impossible to make more complete arrangements for the trans action of business.

Vandevere, Pastor of the Shiloh Presbyterian Church, colored, of New York city, while on his way home, stepped from • a passenger coach standing at the depot'of the New Jersey Southern R.

It caused the train to jump the track and run into a passenger coach, doing 6ome slight damage. Reform In Baltimore.

Several speeches were made at the meeting, and a good deal of enthusiasm seemed to prevail. The California Rank Ntntcment. New York, Au'g. 30.—A private despatch to a leading house in the California trade in this city, dated San Francisco, August 29th, says : Tliis country is stricken with grief by the loss of W. C. Ralston, which is es teemed a greater calamity than the failure of ills bank. Many interests and the peo ple must suffer loss, the country is prospess and strong, and business generally checked. For ourselves, we lose nothing whatever by the Bank failure and our principal nothing, except, perhaps, one small amount of bank stock bought ten-years ago, and which will occasion no inconvenience. Mr. Ralston's death was purely accidental, the result of a cold bath while in a licaled and excited state The Captain of a Vessel Beaten to Death. New York, Aug. 29.—The murder per petrated on board the Schooner Josephine Lloyd, In Cowbay, Long Island, Friday night, was of the most atrocious character. The Captain named Lawrence, and the mute whose name is not at present known, had an altercation on the deck and afterwards in the cabin. When the femaindcr of the crew, two boys, opened the door of the State-room, the body of the unfortunate Captan was discovered covered with blood and chopped in a sickening manner with an axe. The murdered man's hands were tied together and not the least sign of life could be found in him. The Captain's pocket book had been ridel. It Is reported the murderer has been captured hut It has not yet been conflfmcd. of A rera Crime. Trenton, N. J., Aug. 29: —'The startling discovery that the State Treasurer of New Jersey, Josephus Sevey, Jr., has embezzled money and properry, of the State amounting to nearly $200,000, causes the greatest ex citement, astonishment, and confusion, which is Increased by the factthat.Mr. Sevey is reported to have fled from Trenton as soon as he learned that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. It is stated that the money was drawn from time to time from the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, upon the agent of which .Mr. Sevey called and collected moneys some times in advance. How lie disclosed of it is not known, and will not be known for some days. The Governor Is expected specially to investigate the affair at once. Wall Street Thoroughly Agitated. New York, Aug. 30.—There was consi derable depression in Wall Street, this after noon, and a general decline in stocks with a weak market. Western Union declined from 83% at the opening to 80% at the close. The dealings in the stock were character ized by great excitement, other securities fell off in like proportion. The street was full of rumors of a probable squeeze by the Bears. A feeling of oppression is apparent as to the future course of the stock market. Among the many rumors afloat was one to the effect that Jay Gould had been called upon by a prominent bank ing firm for the settlement of a large loan. Gould was on the street himself, and it was said he experienced considerable difficulty in raising the necessary cash. On the other hand Gould's brokers.say they had only $300,000 called in upon them which they had no difficulty in renewing on cheap terms but the direct cause of the agitation and decline could be traced to no authentic source. The principal attacks appeared to be directed upon the Western Union to bear down that stock. The market closed with an uneasy feeling and to-morrow's opera tions arc awaited with considerable anxiety. Excitement In San Francisco. San Francisco, Aug. 30.—The Bulletin, this -evening, contains what is called a beastly article on William C. Ralston, which is exciting a very bitter feeling. The intro duction confesses that it was published to influence the election on Wednesday, but it is thought the article will recoil and leave the Bulleiin ticket out of eight. The funer al prosession pf Palstin was immense, and is considered a great rebuke to the Bulletin, and Call for their alleged malicious and in cendiary course. These papers have been accused of sending malicious reports to New York, through the associated press. The feeling against these papers is so bitter that Mayor Otis ordered troops kept under arms for three days, and on the night of Ralstin's death, troops were on the streets by a report, that a mob was rushing to sack the buildings of the Bulletin, and Call. These officers were constantly guarded by policemen. A prominent banker reports the immediate cause of the demand by the Directors of the Bank of California, for Ralston's resignation was the discovery by the Directors during the investigation of a lot of bills receivable from irresponsible parties.

One of the attractions of Market street is the superb window at Sanders' dry good store below Third street.

THE HERALD HAN DELVING IN STATIS TICS OF GENERAL INTEREST— DELA WARE'S INDUSTRIAL AORTA—THE FACTS AND FIGURES. There is scarcely a Wllmlngtonlan who has not, sometime during his leisure hours sauntered, cigar in month and arms a-pocket, down Market street, out Front, round the corner, into the most bustling scene the city presents anywhere within its borders. "Black yer bopts," is the sound that can not escape you, if that of the whistling, ringing, noisy engines docs., "Black yer boots—shine 'em up," says the liliputlan Aethiop; and many a travel er has gone his way apprehending that his legs were about to become prisoners to the brawny grasp of the little fiend. "Black yer boots," dies away, for like ye Herald man, it is very probable that you do that work for yourself. You circumnavigate the waiting rooms, punch a friend or two in the ribs, go out front and watch the stolid countenances of waiting millionaires or the "windowed raggedness" of eternally wait ing penny-aires. Curious as the Herbld man is, he cannot stand in a bustle without sifting said bustle to the grains, 60 with his usual inimitable grimace, he accosted a uniformed "High and mighty" with, "Who the deuce runs this thing." Utterly respectful this official benignity ftDBwcrcd • "The P. W. & B., of course ; this is the Delaware train a shoviu' along down to the peaehes, Rehoboth, et cet., ad nau —." "No," said I, "but. to one of the finest lands under the sun ;" and forthwith pro ceeded to punch Delaware Railroad data out of the authorities. For* a long time, a pe riod of 30 years, the Delaware R. R. has been under lease to the P., W. & B., and since that timo lia6 been one of the most profitable lines in the country. This lease expires sometime in 1870. Now the company pay six per cent, on par value of the stock and will reissue as soon as the lease expires. The Delaware R. R. proper is from Delmar, on the southern boundary of the State, to Rodney Station, a distance of eighty-three miles. The New Castle and Frenchlown road stretches from New Castle to Rodney, seven and one-half miles. The New Ca6tle and Wilmington road is from the former city to the Delaware Junction six and onc lialf miles—making the length of the whole road ninety-nine piiies. Mr. Kenney, of the P., W. & B., is the General Superintendent; the President, is S. M. Eelton, Esq.; Secre tary, Maulove Hayes, Esq.; Mr. N. Mills, Manager. There are twenty-five station agents on the route whose salaries are from forty-five to sixty-five dollars per month. There are three passenger conductors and six brake men ; 19 freight conductors and 74 brake men, with the wages of conductors ranging from $80 to $120 and that of the brakemeh from $45 to $60. Mr. Graves has charge of the freight office in Wilmington. There are 800 cars in use every day and the number of engineers at present employed is eighteen. The constructive departmeut, under the man agement of Mr. John Mahoney, gives work to 144 men. Mr. E. P. Wise is the dispatoh officer at this city; under him there are twenty-five operators at various stations along the line. The pay roll of the company averages $15,000 per month, exclusive of the engineers, whose salaries are large. During the present year twelve miles of track has been laid in sidelings, &c., on the road, the company always very careful that repairs shall be made as soon as the neces sity or advantage is seen. The income of the corporation is, of course, large, as will be seen by the pub lished statements made by the company it self. No one can doubt the advantage this main trunk is to Delaware, and, ' "Reaching fine points," quoth tho Her ald man to his courteous informant, "there is, on the other hand no doubt but that the Delaware R. R. derives a very considerable advantage from the Peninsula. "Yes, somewhat different from the branch roads, many of which barely- eke out ex penses to their owners."

Yesterday morning shortly before noon, a fire broke out in the Aiden fruit drying es tablishmhnt at Milford, and although prompt measures were taken to suppress the flames in less than an hour the entire es tablishment was a mass of smoking ruins. The establishment is situated in what is known as South Milford near the depot, and was the largest of the kind in the State, em ploying about one * hundred and fifty hands at the time of the burning. It was owned by a stock company ana has been paying very well. Its value was about $20,000 or $25,000, and with the contents the loss will foot up nearly $20,000. An insurance of $5,000 was all that was on the concern, and the actual loss to the stock holders will be $28,000. Happening just at this time the fire was particularly distressing, as all the hands are now without employment. There is talk of rebuilding the concern, but it will not be possible to get It ready in time for the present season. The fire originated in one of the evapora tors, and was not discovered until a portion of the building somewhat remote from the part where the hands were em ployed was in flames. Had there been an organized fire company in the town with the proper equiments, the building might have been saved, but the only means of get ting water to the flames was by ordinary buckets, very few of which were handy, the building being some distance from the thickly settled portion of the town. BALL AND BAT. THE GAME THIS AFTERNOON — OTIMR POINTS. This afternoon, the Quicksteps play the Doer club of Philadelphia, at their new grounds. The game will be one of the best of the season, and those who go out to wit ness it will be amply repaid. A series of games will probably soon be arranged with the Actives, to take place in Philadelphia. Manager Mullen has sent a farewell challenge to Reading, and if the blue legs have any pluck they will accept. There is a disposition on the part of the Reading boys to be afraid of the Quicksteps, 6ince the last two games, in which they were so badly beaten it playing, although an accident, and the rain gave them the largest score in the Philadelphia game. Yesterday the Bull Dogs and Wilmington nine played at 9th Tind Pine, the former wining by a score of 55 to 10. Umpire Mr. Manuel. The game yesterday afternoon between the Fame Hose nine and the Delaware Fire Companies team, resulted in a victory for the former, by a score of 28 to 34. The game played in Philadelphia, yester terday, between the Hartford and Philadel phia dubs, resulted in favor of the Hart fords by the following score : Innings, 1 2 3 4 5 (i 7 8 9 Hartford, Philadelphia 0 0 2 0 5 2 0 0 2—11 0200 O'1000—3 BEACHES. SIIIPMPNTS YESTERDAY—THE MARKETS. The shipments of peaclios from the Pe ninsula orchards yesterday, were as follows: 117 cars. To Jersey City To Philadelphia Elizabeth Newark, To Boston PerB. &O.R.R. Per Penna. R. R. 20 u 1 2 " 33 34 " 22 . Total 228 The si dpments over the Delaware Divi sion of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad for the last week, aggre gated 1,548 cars, containing 774,000 bas kets. The markets yesterday, were rather bet ter than on Saturday, in Philadelphia and New York, and prices ranged from 40 cents to 70 cents, i'or good fruit, inferior selling for much less. The Boston markets were a trifle worse than last week and but poor returns were realized for fruit in that city. The western markets were good and re murntrative prices were obtained for fruit ipped to the. larger cities. The Wilmington markets were well sup plied, much of- the fruit having been left over from Saturday and was not in very good condition, Prices ranged from 20c to 00c but there wa6 not a very active demand. A letty from R. T. Fockwood, Esq., who goes over to Englang in charge of thepcrches shipped in the Ohio dated on board the steamship Ohio, as she left the bay at the Breakwater, states that he "had succeeded In getting the thermometer down to 37% de grees, which Is doing very well. I have In reality nothing to do, as the officers on board .the ship watch the mercury all the time, on account of the interest they feel in the enterprise. I think they will arrive all right." shi - HOW THE DAYS' PASSED AWAY. He meandered Into the Herald office late on Saturday afternoon, and though his demcaner proclaimed him a pluck of the purest ray serene, the generous minded staff received him kindly, and he seated himself with Chambers' Book of Days con tentedly. The staff removed ItBelf for a moment to the composing room, and' - upon Its return the Days had passed away, as had also the pluck. He was arrested last evening, and the Herald office is once more supplied witli a library. He will have his hearing to-day, and a trip to the river side may do him good. Market street from Front to 8ixth, pre sented a lively scene last evening about eight o'clock. The circus advertisers had arranged a ealefum reflection at the Dela ware House, and not less than three thous and people blocked up the street to view the gorgeous pictures as they appeared and disappeared on the, canvass, ft was one of the most animated scenes that has occurred on Market street in some time. MAYOR SIMMS' VISIT TO READING. a is ^SPECTING READING'S PUBLIC BUILDINGS AND INSTITUTIONS. On Friday, Mayor Simms, of this city, bad a fine opportunity of seeing Reading under the most favorable circumst ances. The day was delightful, and in the care of Chief Cul len, the visitor was shown the greatest re spect and attcnttoc. It is to be regretted that mayor Evans just happened to be out of town during Mayor Simms' visit,as Read ing's Chief Executive, while on a visit to Wilqilngtou, was shown the greatest atten. tion by His Honor of the land of the water melon and peach. Mr. Simms, like our own Mayor, is a jolly bachelor, and stands over sixfeet in heighth, and weighs considerably over two hundred and fifty pounds. His term of office for three years in Wilmington is about expiring and as they do not re-elect in that city, Mr. Simms will bid that office adieu for the present at least, in a few months. He does not appear to be much interested in the con test, although his staunch Democracy and untiring energy and activity will be lent to the success of the party he represents. Mayor Simms says that political matters in Wil mington are very lively and until election the campaiug will wax hot. On Friday with Chief Cullen, his Honor visited the couuty jail and expressed him self as highly pleased with the internal ar rangements of that institution. The various cells were inspect* d and the discipline and managements were inquired into. Mayor Simms is a very observing gentleman and he gave evidence of considerable knowledge in the matter of thorough prison discipline. He was considerably pleased with our water supply and stated that it was very fortunate for Reading that it was not neceesgrv to pay thousands of dollars annually for pumping water; but instead of that having a natural gravitation. On Friday eyening, Mayor Simms spent a short time at the City Hall and was accorded a seat on the bench of the Mayor's Court. After all the cases had been disposed of, he gave an interesting account of how local criminal justice was dispensed in Wilming ton. Their City Hall fnd police accommo dations are not as good as they are in Read ing. Here we have rows of well ventilated and well arraigned cells in our lockup,while in Wilmington all they have are two cellar rooms, where the lodgers and prisoners are thrown together. Instead of having a large and fine Mayor's court room, their police cases are tried in a small apartment on the same floor as the cellar prison pens are. An Eagle reporter observed this while on a re cent flight to Wilmington, and while visiting the poliae headquarters wjth Mr.W. 8. Pride of the Wilmington Every Evening. Mayor Simms thinks that will be better accommo dations there before long. To-day lie is to visit the County alms'house, Hospital and County Farm across the river. The ride thither and returning cannot but prove in teresting and refreshing. Mayor Simms du ring his brief stay, has made many friends by his courtesy, fine social qualities and his very gentlemanly bearing. Mayor Simpis expects to return home this afternoon, and he will take with him the best wishes of a large circle of friends.— Eagle. FIGHTING IT OUT. A MILL IN SOUTH WILMINGTON. Yesterday morning, quite a flutter of ex citement was occasioned by an amateur mill, which took place there about 12 o'clock between George Read, who is a cat tle dealer in this city, and Jno. Stidham, who follows the agreeable vocation of a gentleman of leisure. Early in the morn ing the two worthies had been engaged in conversation and high words had ensued, when Reml proposed that they should fight it out on the square, and with a party of friends the two pugilists adjourn ed to South Wilmington, and in the pres cnce of a large crowd of gaping spectators, formed a ring, and the mill commenced. The fight was short but sharp, and when tho sponge was thrown up, Stidham's' second did it, and with bloody ears and swollen head, lie was taken from the ring in an insensible condition. The police failed to put in an appearance until the affair had concluded. LAST re. GOOSE. One was a tailor and the other a vender of boots and shoos.
