SOME note's of last year. The Fair of '74, which opened Sept. 23d, was largely attended from every part the Feuiusula, the exhibit of farm produce was good, the racing was pronounced ex cellent at the time. Being the first year and the formal opening, Hon. Thomas Bayard gave the luitial address. : The lckest time made by a trotter was that " Perkins Morrell," a New Jersey horse; tbe premium of #340 being awarded to his owner. " Modoc," who is to figure tills year, gained the award of #40 in class 34 " Andy Johnson," and " Keystrne Pateher," also entered this vear, respectively won premiums of #120 aud #60. "Jennie Moore " was among the winning horses '74, and is entered now. The premiums els ributed last year amounted to #3,000— #1,500 less than tlfe present sum set apart for that purpose. PEUIILBS FROM TIIE T.URF. Do you think you will go beyond last year ?" inquired the Herald reporter of prominent member of the Association. No doubt of it," he replied, " not the least; the number of entries made at present would indicate " As for the racing;" . sale'. I, "how do you-" "As for the racing, my dear sir, it will be unusually spirited; we have the finest trotters on the Peninsula booked; while, If you will take the trouble to look at the schedule,. you will find that horses from abroad make a. formidable showing." Reductions in the fare have been made by the several railroads on tbe Peninsula, so that the attendance which would have been very large, under any circumstances, now bids fair to be immense. Fears are enter tained that the crowds cannot be accommo dated with bedding; as for food, the |restau ranfs, hotels and private houses will allow no one to drift off mad and dry both. Per sons in this city wishing to spend all day at the fair, can leave here on the five o'clock freight with passenger car attached and turn on the up train which goes out from the Middletown depot at 8 o'clock p. During the exhibition, The Herald will furnish its readers with full aud accurate reports of the proceedings. qu H much. re m. OVH SEW CASTLE COEEE8POSD ESCE. THE CITY BY THE RIVER—SOME OF ITS INSTITUTIONS. • City of New Castle, Oct. 4. In compliance with your request I here with have the pleasure 6f sending you this, the first of a series of correspondence, as circumstances permit, from this city. There now—that last word will cause some of your Wilmingtoniatis to smile, perhaps audibly—but they would do well to restrain their mirth, if so inclined, at the idea of this hitherto sleepy old town being called a city till they have read further. Well, then, in the language of the novelist , this city is beautifully situated on the banks of the noble Delaware, and has lately awakened from its Rip Van Winkle sleep of more than twenty years though, and made the import ant discovery that it is in just the spot to enable it to be somebody of consequence some day if It has a mind to. For the past half century it has been content with Its humble position of County Seat, the centre of justice for this county, containing the Court-House, county offices and jail, but some two or three years ago some of its more enterprising citizens, knowing the ad vantage possessed by New Castle for a manufacturing town, induced the Tasker Co. to establish a branch of their works here, which has been done, and they now have several large mills in operation ; but more of these hereafter. This move of course increased population, in some few instances of not the most desirable kind. This again made it necessary for the estab lishment of a good municipal government . Therefore at the last meeting of the Legis lature an act was passed converting the old est, sleepiest and dullest town on the Dela ware, at one stroke, into a city, with all the machine-y and prerogatives of any other city, and it stands now equal in most res pects to Wilmington. It has its Mayor, City Council, City Assessor, City Treasur er aud police, aud if that dou't constitute a city I should like to know what does. It lacks somewhat yet in population, but that will come with time, amt it is well enough to be provided with a good municipal gov eminent for their benefit when they do come. At the time the charter was passed a free school bill was also passed, giving the children a chance to get a good com mon school education for little or nothing. Isn't she a city then ? More Anon. JOTTISOS AHOUT TOWS. The Kehobeth Beach Association direc tors meet to-day to elect a President, vice President Wilson, who will resign. The Board of Health will visit the County Hospital to-day. To-morrow the opening lecture of the "Charring" course M ill be delivered at the Unitarian church, by Rev. M. J. Savage, M ho Mill talk about the "good old times." The great game of base ball of the season will occur to-morrow, betu-een the profes sional Athletics and the Quicksteps iu this city. This is grand u-eathcr for the Middletown fair. A very large attendance is expected. The II. & H. company have had three photographs taken of tlie burning monitor, which lias not yet been consumed, and is still burning on the Jersey shore. Ittakes a long time to burn the hull of one of Uncle Sam's boats. The Phoenix Fire company's horses have been attacked by the horse disease, aud are temporarily out of uso. Tlie Waverly base ball club of this city Mill play the Dauntless club of Newport, on Saturday, at McDoMcllvllle. The sixteenth anniversary of Morning Star Division, No. 2, Sons of Temperance, will be held this evening In the second story the McClary building.

Wh»t Took flare In the (tenner City, Yesterday. ' I' ■ ' Reported'Specially for the Herald. OIIAKLEY ROSS' CASE. The excitement in police circles,yesterday morning concerning the appearance of Baker, one of tbe "knowing creatures," constantly coining, to the surface in the Ross abduction case, has subsided. Baker says simply, that he knew Nelse Boothe,one of the self-admitted abductors of Charley Ross, for a period of three months, in South Carolina, but that he never imparted to him (Baker) intelligence of the boy's where abouts, that ever amounted to anything. Baker resides in Philadelphia and expresses his willingness to assist the police; but if he doesn't know any more of the case than be appears to, his assistance wont amount to much. of ; MOODBY AND SANKEY. Mr. Geo. H-.Stuart, the King Bee of Quaker City Soul Savers, thinks Meody aud Sankey, will receive a warm reception next Thursday week, in this city,despite the opposition of the Lutheran ministers who are of the opinion that the itinerant preachers and 8 ingers,are a pair or religious "blather skites." The sanctimoniouscosmopoliteswilj inaugurate their seige against sinners at the Methodist Church, Broad and Arch streets, and there is the faintest probability that said; inaugural service will not be of the most harmonious character. Mr. 8 tuart,however,expresses his determination to "go for" all opposition to a free rostrum "tooth and nail." THE HEFORMERS APOLOGIZING. Some five or six days ago the Political Reform Association of this city addressed a letter to Judge Craig Biddle, candidate on the Republican ticket for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, asking him to ! make known his intentions with regard to the appointment of a Prothonotary of that Court. Wm. B. Mann is a prominent can. didate for the position, and at the prospect of his being successful, the reformers shudder. To this request of their's Mr. Biddle returned a polite but positive answer—refusing to commit himself to any course of action which might be construed into a bid for the judgeship—in effect, sug gesting to the Reformers that they mind their own business. To this answer L. P j Ashmead, Secretary of the Municipal Reform Association, published an apolo getic reply yesterday afternoon, regretting, at the same time, that it was beyond tbe power of his questioners to read the Judge's mind. AN OFFENCE AGAINST LIBERTY. Since the arrest of the four men in the house at Front and Spruce streets, while they were sleeping, and their subsequent sentence to the house of correction by Mag istrate List, as vagrants, and the magis trate's censure for so doing, ly Judge Briggs, there has been a systematic contin uance of these outrages on liberty. In each case it is discovered that a Democrat, for no other offence than his political persuasion, has been the victim, and a very popular hue and cry is being raised in consequence. Thc municipal organization of the Republi cad party has become so thoroughly de moralized at the prospect of utter route on election day, that in their Jfreuzy they have had recourse to this suicidal policy, hoping thereby to reduce the'numberof Democratic votes. That tliis is the reason for the per petration of these outrages against liberty, must be conceded, when it is known beyond all doubt that at least fifteen thousand en tries of false names have been made on the assessment lists. Putting both these wild undertakings together, it can be understood by the wayfarer, though he run, that a goodly Republican majority would be the result. But the Democratic City Executive Committee, under Ben;. L. Temple, Esq. lias exposed (he latter fraud, and Judge Finlctter, (a Republican Judge) sitting in the Common Pleas Court yes terday, put an effective if not effectual damper upon the praetisers of the former rascally scheme; A case came up before him on a habeas corpus, in which it appeared that a man named John Far rell had been arrested at (lie corner of Fif teenth and CallowhiU streets, taken before a Police Sergeant, and committed to prison without a hearing on the threadbare charge of vagrancy. In the meantime the writ was issued and the case presented to court. It i was proven that the man was sober, honest and industrious, and the officer who made the arrest could only give as his reason for so doing the pitalle excuse that the mini _ was standing on the corner at half pint seven o'clock in the morning. After lie had heard the evidence Judge Finlettcr, it: censed very naturally at this invasion of tlie .i.w r i , . rights of a citizen, denounced in the strong est language the officer's action, and hinted that If such a case M as presented to him r, again ho would make a public example of the parties offending. — t TIIE FREAKS OF A LANCASTER LUNAT 0. A man m Iio informed those r.nxi know, that liis name was Peter Stuinberger, kicked up quite a rampage on Chestnut street. At tho corner of Ninth street he turned a eeries of sommersaults, and WO ind up his acrobatic performance by spra n'ng his ankle. On one leg he hobbled .X l-J to the sidewalk, end seizing in, old gentle man by the coat collar, informed him hdentiully that, he was going to cut his throat.

The telegraph office sf the Western Union Company, now at Third and Chest nut streets, will be removed, on Thursday next, to the new granite building at Tenth and Chestnut streets. THg ESTATE OF AA1T COOKE. Yesterday morning Judge McKenna read the opinion of Justice Strong in the matter of the U. S. vs. Edwin M. Lewis, trustee of the estate of Jay Cooke & Co. of the government was that ti e firm of Jay Cooke, MeCotlough & Co., were partners, and were at the time of the bankruptcy of the latter, indebted to tl.e government to the sura of £132,310.90 8 d; that the govern ment had priority over other creditors; and that the assets in the hands of the trustee should first be applied to the discharge of this indebtedness. The case was argued at Erie, and Judge Strong sustaining the claim of the government, decrees in its favor. RUM AND PISTOL SHOOTING. Last nigl.t. a man named H. C. Palmer, very drunk and decidedly obstreperous, entered a "shebang" in CallowhiU Ssreet above Twelfth. After swearing inordinate ly and knocking several people down, he was shot in the back and then ran off to the doctor. One of the balls fired at him flat tened against his skull. Of this he was nit aware till lie combed his top locks, when the ball lodged upon the comb, He told your correspondent, who called upon him after the accident, that his school master had always accused him of thick headed ness, but not until then was he aware of the thorough correctness of the old gentleman's assertion. He will live—more's the pity. COUNTERFEITER ARRESTED.

He agreed to sell to Simon Renimill, of Wiil iamstowu, N.

The committee of investigation in the case of Rev. E. T. Kenny (it is known completed their arduous task) on Thursday, Septem ber 9th, at Madison street M. E.
