Y., September 15.—Large numbers of delegates and prominent poli ticians have already arrived to attend the Democratic Convention, and the prospects are that there will be one of the largest and most exciting conventions ever held. The hotels arc thronged, and the interest is in creasing. The sentiment is strongly in favor of standing by Tilden, though there is an undercurrent of opposition, and an entirely new ticket will probably be nomi nated, though a strong effort will be made to secure the renomination of Attorney General Pratt.

The Ileccnt Terrible lake Dlmi ter, Buffalo, Sept. 15.— No tidings have been received from the bark Evening Star, one of tlie undertow of tlie ill-fated Meudota, and it is becoming a certainty that she also lias foundered with all on hoard. The loss of life ty last weeks gale, to say nothing of the vessels and cargoes, is the largest for many years. By tlie loss of the schooners Onondaga and James Dunn, the pyopellers Equinox ami Meudota, and the steam barge Evening Star alone, 40 lives have been sacri ficed, and many eases of loss of life yet re main to be heard from. In the cases of the Equinox and Mendo'.a, which comprises !!8 lives out of tlie 40, there is evidence to show that botli crafts were little better than float ing coffins. The Mendota drew 12 feet of water when she left here, whereas she had not loaded as that by two feet for several years, being so old as not to be Insured. It is not sur prising that, her engineer openly protested before leaving port, that the first gale would send them to the bottom; Indeed, so well known was her unworthincss, that ever stnee the gale last week, was first reported, Vessel agents In the city have been predict ing that the Mcndote wovld never reach Chicago.

It was in the old town of laws and whip ping posts that Jaininah Duckey, who, like Othello, wore tlie "shadowed livery of a burning sun," alid Harriet Handy,, also of Hamian descent, were perambulating the streets, eaeli leaning on the gallant arm ol a brave defender. They were going in op posite directions, and, as they passed, 'tis said tlie gentle Harriet remarked upon the eclipsed visage of the other lady. "Mis-, like me not for my complexion," said Ja minah, and thereupon, like tigresses, they set to, Harriet in the nonce masticating the lily black fingers of her rival. Appealing to justice, Janiiiiah drew the terrific Harriet before Squire Frazer, who said, "Hurt her haiid, eh i Handy ! it shall be done—jus tice shall be done —justitiaflat mat caelum— though the heavens fall. So, Harriet Handy, stand up, draw wallet, and pay to this goodly municipality $3 and costs." TUB (l MAM) Bit S' PICRIC.

Last evening, the usual Fall fair, given by the Horticultural Society, for the benefit of the Home for Friendless Children dpened in the large Auditorium of the Institute. The opening proved to be the most bril liant since the inception of the enterprise. The fair opened at 8 o'clock and In a few moments the extensive hall was flooded with the beauty and elite of Wilmington society. The costumes were both modern'and antique, but in each case elegance and good taste combined to render them unusuallv marked for their appropriateness and beauty. Thedecoratiobsofthe hall aresuperb. We don't recollect of having, on such occasions, seen a better exhibition of good tart: and artistic araangement. The feature of the ornimentation is the evergreen grotto which decorates the centre of the auditorium, and peeping from the cedar and ivy of which are the flowers of the exhibition, whose blush ing pinks are-only rivalled by those of the fair dispencers of their floral sisters. Mrs. Preston Lee presides over both the grotto and its fair inhabitants. Fronting the entrance and extending from the corner of the hall, is the Home table, surmounted by arches draped in the most delicate of cream silk, the novelty of which is relived by occasional drapings of ever greens, producing a most agreeable contrast and very pleasant effect. The ornamentation of the cake table, extending to the West, is not less beautiful, being a drapery of green surge, tinted by just the least bit of green tastefully intertwined about its folds. Mrs. General Richardson, assisted by Mrs. Lydia Moore, have charge of these elegantly ar ranged departments. A strikingly arranged nook, immediately in front of the refresh ments table, extending some distance along the north wall trimmed with evergreens, is the Restaurant, the outer portion of which is used as an exhibition stand for the fruits of the Peninsula, which are displayed in tempting profusion. The stage, which fronts the east end of the hall, has been decorated with cedar and evergreen arches as a lemonade foun tain, and its apearance is especially attrac tive, Mrs. Chas. Tatnall being the Rebecca cfthewell. Fronting it,at the extreme end of the auditorium is the music bower, in which Prof. Ritchie with his excellent com pany of musicians is ensconsed, and a con stant stream of delicious waltzes fills the large hall during the evening. The exhibition of fruits, flowers and veg etables indeginous to the Peninsula, is very large and well arranged. The following are the two committees, which have had charge of tlie exhibition, and so well fulfilled their duties in arrang ing for the fair. Committee of Arrangements—Preston Lee, H. B. Duncan, E. T. Warner, Ed. Comly, Harry Hoffecker, Dr. Mitchell, Aus tin Harriugton, William and John Vaugh. Committee on Flowers and Decoration— Mrs. Preston Lee, the Misses Du Fonts, Miss Whitely, Miss Jordan, Mrs. Chambers, Mrs. Maples, Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Bringhurst, the Misses Ferris. Mrs. Baker, Mrs.Walters, Mrs. Corbit, Mrs. Lee, Mrs. Dr. Mitchell, Mrs. Moore, Mrs. George Sparks, Mrs. Gil pin, Miss Johnson. The attendance was very large last even ing, and the fair this year promises to be a success. Nothing could be better than the management this year, and especially have the ladies exhibited excellent taste iu their beautiful decorations, some of which we have casually mentioned, but many of them space will not allow us to comment on except in general terms. The music was very fine, and altogether the Horticul tural lair this season may be pronounced most decidedly the best that has yet been given. The fair will continue the remainder of this week, and will increase in attractive ness every evening. Those who desire an evenings enjoyment and at the same time to assist in a good cause will attend. The Hall arrangements are under the im mediate supervision of Joseph Richardson, Esq., Henry Tatnall and Austin Harrington Esq., and also William Canby, President of the Horticultural Society. TUE STOVTB LESSEE VS. KILLER 'CAST. An Appeal pbom the Verdict Taken —The Case to bb Resumbd at the April Term. The ease of Stoute's Lessee vs. Klllen, which attracted such unusual attention last spring, and which was decided by the jury adversely to the plaintiff against the rullngs of the Court, will come up again at Dover' at the npxt April term. The counsel for .the plaintiff, Messrs. Salusbury and Com egys, have filed an appeal, but although the case may he put on the present calen da/, It Is not likely that it will be tried be fore next April. Experts from Washing ton and Baltimore will be brought to tes tify as to wbat constitutes live birth and the trial will be of Interest both to the public and to the legal and medical pro fessions. In the meantime Prof. Russ has written a paper to the Medical Times, of Philadelphia, sustaining the Court In Its decisions, which were adverse to the defendant, and it has been copied in the secular press quite exten sively. In commenting on the article, the Mover Delawarean says : "We do not feel called upon to express any opinion in relation to wbat the jury In the Stout case ought to have done, or wbat another jury should do when tbe case edmes up at tbe next seem to us to I I in to again (as It Is rumored It April term); but there does not be any Impropriety In saying of tbe article referred to, that it is a very able pa peep and seems tobe based upon Im pregnable grounds." will CHARLIE BOSS.

The trial of William H. Westervelt was resumed this morning, and the examina tion of the prisoner continued as follows : I bad several interviews with Detective King since the death of Mosher and Doug lass ; I recollect having conversation with him at Girard and Bowery, but couldn't say it was in January; it was about that time ; I asked him how he made out up at Fort Jefferson; he told me he could get no information there ; I had told him previous ly about a party that lived at Fort Jefferson he asked me why I never spoke to him about the case before ; I told him I never spoke to any officers about It except Super intendent Walling; he said if he had had the case he would have got the men ; he said, "Do you know what I'd done? I would of hired a room opposite your house and I'd a took my mate with me and wait for them ," I told him 11 that had been lone in tlie first place they would have got them ; he did't say that he w ould have watched me to get them ; I didn't say if he had watched them he would have got "us."

A. No, sir. CROSS EXAMINED. for After the 26th of June I saw Mosher and Douglass in New York nine times; I can't mention them in their order; saw them twdee in my house; four times in Strom berg's saloon and twice at Mrs. Morris'; saw them at the latter's place the Saturday proceeding their death and in the early part of November; saw them first at my house on August 14 and the next time Was short y after my sister came there ; I think about four days; i think she came on the 20th; could'nt mention the dates I saw them in Stromberg's; saw them there iu the middle of August until the early part of October, during that time; to the best of my knowl edge the first one was on tlie 14tli of Au gust, the next one some four or five days after my sister came ; I could'nt say bow long it was after that the next time ; tlie fourth one was some time about the 20tli of September, and the fifth one I think was in the firstoweak of October ; I might be wrong in them, but that is my belief. My third visit, was about September, and it is my impression that it was in the morn ing; I didn't say any paper was picked up; Mosher said he was going for a paper; didn't say what it was; he said here is one I got in Trenton; didn't say when he got it in Tren ton; didn't say what took him there; I was at 8tromberg's that morning, because I was in the habit of sesorl ing there; for the want of a better place I suppose; I first began going to St romberg's saloon shortly after removing from Philadelphia, in April or tlie first part of May; first went there to meet Hartmann; had no stated time for remain ing in the saloon on these visits; I sometimes remained there two or three hours, doing nothing in particular; had conversations with Hartmann and whoever would be there that I was acquainted with;,the Mott street saloon was about a mile from my home in Henry street; the fourth visit I can't fix with more certainty than about September 20; was in the saloon that day with Mosher and Douglass not more tliau a quarter of an hour I suppose; that visit was in the morn ing, I judge somewhere between 9 aud 9 o'clock; can give no reason for judging it was that hour; I don't think It was later; the three of us left together, and took the cars for Rhinebcck; reached there the same day; it is, I judge, about sixty miles from New York to Rbluebeck; reached in Its neighborhood at noon; we returned to New York on the following night; didn't get in New York the following night; don't know what time the boat reached New York; we left Poughkeepsie the evening after reach ing Rbluebeck; it is my belief that it was about a mouth after my sister came to my house; have no other way of fixing it except that when we were eoni|ng down In the boat, I heard some of the parties talking about a fair, and when I went up with 811 Ifck and Titus I asked when the fair was there and was told that it was on the 22d; don't know that was*a fact that there was a fair there, only from what I was told; be tween January -1,1874, and my arrival hack in April, I'was In New York twice, I be lieve, the first visit there wzs about the 1st of February; I went there to get money that was due me by the Police Department, for services for three days In the month of J uarv; It was about the 10th; I thought I uld get something there I could seirhere; objects in my mind; I had an co I had both those books in my mind to sell, nothing else; had no particular books in view; I got the money; was in New Yo.rk on that visit about two or three days; I'stayed at my mo ther's; I went alone; my wife remained here; purchased nothing in New York that I recollect; I was to see about books at Dick U. Fitzgerald's, in Ann street; didn't buy the gas burners for a while, but saw them in Maiden lane; I think the man's name was Blackman; I saw it advertised In a New York paper; I tlilnk they were $10 a hundred; I didn't buy them because I ight I might see something else that would suit me better; it was a case to fit into another burner, with a lava top; It spread tbe light more, and to use It you didn't have to remove the old burner; (witness produced cue of tbe burners); the reasonT>f my second vlslt-to New York was to see If I could get anything to do there; think It was In tbe latter part of March; I went to the Police Department for one place to get./mployment, and to several others, but can't mention certain places; was there for three days I Judge, but it thou might have been less; don't - tblak-I Ml there any louder; can't fix that time in Marfch; saw at the Police Department Gen. Duryea; on the second visit I went In alone; my family removed to New York some where near the middle of April; I wee doing nothing then, but I didn't go with my family back to New York*, because my ife and children were going to stop, at my sifter's until she could get a place to move in, and there was no accom modation for me, her sister having a large family; there were other places in NeW York where I could have got accommoda tions; I stayed about a week after my wife ; Mosher and Douglass were there when I left my lister's ; they were away about s week, but I didu't stay that week on pur pose to see them when they returned s 1 stayed at my sister's; shipped our goods the day after my wife left; don't know Richards or Richardson by any other name tbafl " Tom;" on June 12th I was selling the i powder around New York, or Brook Williamsburg, Harlem, the suburbs of New York; I went with my brother to Al bany to sell moth powder: that I think was in June; the fare was twenty-dye cents each sold moth : I w moth lyn, I way; that was the only time powder on the Hudson river ; sold It in New Jersey City, at Newark and Jersey City,and nowhere else at any time; can't say what my sales were in the third week in June, they were very low ; some days they would amount to $3, and tlieu agaiu not $1; in two or three days when I first started out in the beginning of Jnne, they amounted to $6 a day; I left here ou June 25, in the 11.40 train, I think, for West Philadelphia; got into the cars at Mar* ket street and some other street that I don't know the name of; we came in the cars from Girard avenue to Market; think it was Sixth street that we got into the ears; am not cer tain that it was Sixth street; my sister, Mo sher and Douglass came down with me; left Girard ayeuue somewhere about half past 10 o'clock and went to my sisters; it was with in an hour after supper.
