Secretary Delano's Conjecture* a* to Hi* Successor. • Washi*ton, Sept 27.—The correspon dence between the President *nd Secretary Delano, regarding the latter's resignation, was made public here yesterday, and is the principal topic of conversation in political circles to-day. Nothing definite can be learned at this writjng as to Mr. Delano's successor, but public opinion seems to set tle upon some Ohioan or Pennsylvanian, although some politicians believe that the appointment lias been tendered to either Congressman I'ratt, or Gen. Clinton, or B. Fisk, Chairman of the Board of Indian Commissioners. Secretary Fisli is the only member of the Cabinet in the city, and he is very reluctant. If lie knows' who the coming man is he suc ceeds admirably in keeping it a secret. He says, however, that all the information he hasoirthc subject has been obtained from the newspapers. One of the President's Sec retary's, at the AVhite House, said nothing had been received from the President on the subject, and that he did not believe the suc cessor bad been 'finally decided upon. On the other hand it is asserted very publicly that the name of the appointee will be made public duringtheday, but from whatquartcr it is not known. It is understood that as soon as a suc cessor is appointed that Assistant Secretary Cowan and Indian Commissioner Smith will tender their resignations, so as to relieve the new Secretary from any embarassment, in case he should want to rearrange the De partment, which, it is believed, will be done.

A Mob Demanding Hr ail—Tbe Ope rative* In Fall River n* nir Mob Force—Police u«lnc Ibelr t lnb* on them-The Mtllfayare ordered out- They Refuse to Hear an A«l dree* from the Mayor-On let Par tial 1 v Restored. Fall River, Mass., Sept. 27.—According to th* predictions of yesterday, the opera tives were in a high state of excitement tills morning. Although it was conceded that a large portion of the help would sign the agreement of the manufacturers and go to work. The agitators of the opposition movement were on hand at an early hour and forming a column at the Southern sec tion of the city marched to the various union mills localities,and cautioned the help against signing away their liberty. The head of the column carried a banner bear ing the inscription : 'Fifteen thousand white slaves to be sold at auction." It is believed that had this movement not been inaugurated, the mills of this city to a great extent, would have had enough help to start up with. After visiting the various manufactories cn route and augmenting the column to some five thousand, they proceed ed to the City Park and held a mass meet ing, at nine o'clock- Fully ten thousand persons had assembled and the feeling exhi bited was of a decidedly communistic and riotious character, a committee was appoint ed to wait upon the Mayor and ask for his intervention in behalf of the operatives and see if lie couldn't devise some means to ameliorate the present distressed state of affairs and intercede for a withdrawal of the present objectionable conditions of the manufactors. After a delay of an hour the committee returned and reported that the Mayor would hot give them any satisfac tion, except that he would Care for the starv ing ones by providing them either with a place at the City or State Alms House and after listening to some remarks of the leaders which were of a very seditious and inflamatory character. The meeting voted to march in a body to the City Hall and demand of the Mayor such means as would relieve them from their present distress. Before adjourning it was understood that various committees would meet in the International Hall. At another meeting this evening a report upon some definite action for their future government was heard. Tills large concourse of people immediately proceeded in line of march through the principal thoroughfares and arriving in front of the City Hall, halted and Commenced hooting and shouting in the most disgrace ful manner. The Mayor attempted to ad dress them, but on account of the noise and yelling, of the excited multitude, was not allowed to proceed. He immediately or dered the City Marshall, who was on hand with a large force of policemen to disperse the crowd forthwith, and the excited rabble exhibited a decided resistance. The police with praiseworthy efficiency marylicd Into the mob and in a short time succeeded in clearing the streets not Without pon siderable violence on the part of tlie excited people. Stones and every available missile were hurled though the surging mob, and after a few ar rests were made, the excitement evinced signs of subsiding. Fortunately none were hurt. The militia of the adjoining cities were telegraphed for, and after the violent manifestations of the mob Were all quiet, arrived and were greeted all along the main streets by biases and groans and all kinds of insult 8. The meeting of this evening was of a far different character from the one of this morning. It was evident the leaders had mistaken their policy by inciting the excitement of the too willing people, and in the event of responsibility res ing upon them, their course was to ad vocate a concession. All the speakers ad vised a peaceful, orderly and law-abiding prosecution of the movement, and claimed that the trouble of this morning was due to the too efficient course of the Executive. They say, be orderly, and the militia now present to quell an imaginary disturbance, will, by to-morrow, have to return and re port that their services ere not required. The matter was placed in the hands of the several committees representing them, and they dispersed, feeling satisfied the diftiulty would be amicably settled. The militia is appointed to the different sections of tlie city, and in case of any serious or incendiary movement i6 started, they will be fully pre pared for the emergency. AMUSEMENTS.

Between six and seven o'clock that evening Deputy John Thompson, brother of the sheriff, went in to retire the prisoners for the night. As he stepped within the inner door lie was struck by a board in the hands of one of the prisoners and knocked down. As soon as lie was felled, Richardson, in for burglary, jumped upon liis back. While down, the deputy got out liis revol ver, and reaching around to Richardson on liis hack, fired, the ball taking effect in the former's groin. At this juncture Shcr jff Thompson hearing the noise, rushed into the jail, locked the outer doors on the inside, and threw the keys out so as to be beyond the reach of the prisoners. He then went in among them "rough-shod," and in a very short time the prisoners were all safely locked in their cells.

LOCKWOOD'S STATEMENT—THE FAIL URE NOT FINAL—ACTION OF THE GROW ERS—A MEETING AT MIDDLETOWN. Every one who has taken any Interest in the European shipment of peaches from the Peninsula, is acquainted with the fail ure of that effort. Mr. Lockwood, who was the a cent of the shippers, returned on the Ohio on Saturday, and makes the fol lowing st atement of the facts of THE FAILURE OF THE SHIPMENT. The steamer started on the 26th of Au gust, with fifteen tons of ice in the refriger ator, which Mr. Bate, the agent, insisted that this was amply sufficient. The tem perature was at 54 at 4 o'clock on the night of starting, and the next day fell to 50, and 48 on the 28th, which was the lowest point reached. On the 80th the mercury began to raise and on the 31st, the refriger ator was opened,-but the fruit was then iu excellent condition, save in a few eases where specks were noticed. Captain Mor ris then furnished more ice from the 6hips stores, about ten tons, but on September 1st the ice had all given out and the meroury was at 54, and rose to 70 on the 6th, on the 7th it was at 90 in the refrigerator, when the compartment was opened and it was found that the peaches were entirely rotten and ip a state of fermentation. Mr. Lock wood, upon landing attempted to sell the fruit for distillation, but failed and was compelled to give away the crates iu order to have the fruit taken from the wharf A crate of Rus Favorites, which was taken from the refrigerator and placed in the ships ice room, was found upon landing to be perfectly preserved. Mr. Lockwood (svi that the prices which would have been obtained in Liverpool for the fruit, would not have satisfied the growers, as there is plenty of fine looking peaches in London from the continent, but tasteless, and that our fruit would not have commanded more than $2.80 per crate, but we are inclined to doubt this, as when the people discovered the superiority in the flavor of the Delaware peaches, they would have sold for much more than $3. When the steamer landed, dealers from London and other cities, were awaiting the cargoof peaches, and were dis apointed when they discovered thatthey had rotted. It was stated, also, that an agent of the Queen had been there to look after a supply for her larder. ACTION OF THE GROWERS, Mr. Samuel Townsend, informed a Her ald reporter on Saturday, that the ship pers would hold a meeting at Middletown, irobably next week, to consider what action t would be proper to take in reference to the matter. It is their intention to sue the Steamship Company for an alleged breach of contract. 1 I Arrivals at the Clayton House. J. II. Resley, N. Y. John Siteox, Denver. David Copper, Mass. Dr. John H.
