Incidents and Mattings day School Excursion. St. Paul's Sn» Yesterday morning before 9 o'clock. streams of people wended their way to Water and French streets, the groaning under the weight of the huge dinner baskets, and the women gener ally leading a string of children, each of whom wished to go In a different dlreo tlon. This rush of people towards this particular part of the city caused, as might be supposed, by a riot, but by the fact that Ht. Paul's M. E. excursion started from that point, The people embarked on the train and the excursion left this city, wonderful to relate, without having left anyone be hind, although several fussy old gentle men and nervous old ladles were afraid, ''they would be left by the "keers," The train went calmly on Us way, with no fools to stick their heads out of the windows, to mar the even tenor or Its Journey. At the WAN. Railroad pier on the Delaware river the train came to astar d still, and here the people were obliged to pas» from one car to another In single AI« beftie the wharf could be reached, Dying at the wharf was the large and commodious steamer "Republic, well and favorably known to Wilmington ex curslon goers. Into this steamer the crowds hurried, and at w. 16 o'clock the ropes were cast off and the passengers were enjoying "a life on the ocean wave" on fresh water. When the steamer was opposite New Dastle a young lady on board fonnd that her hat was no longer useful and allowed the wind to carry It away. But this lit— tie Incident did not mar the pleasure of *k® passengers who amused themselves by gazing at the pretty scene spread out before them, with hundreds of boats, from a row boat to an ocean steamer, passing them ; by observing tbs actions of the gulls, who after circling several times around a certain spot of water, would dive Into It suddenly, only to reappear in seiende with a fish in Its mouth; by listening to tha sweet strains of entertaining music, played by Naple's City Band, under the leadership of PI soldo OtgU, A short dtstsnce dovn the river the large ocean steamship "Switzerland" was passed.

Hardly had the passengers landed when their ears were assailed by tha water lilly boys, who continually yelled "Water lillies, five a bunchl'' and tha hackmen who will "take you all over tha city for a dollar." Many of the passengers remained at Cepe May Point and viewed the band some cottage which was presented to Mrs. President Harrison bv ö. W. , Childs John Wunamaker, A. J. Drexel, Editor McKean aud other gentlemen of the "Blind Charity Syndicate," and which she now occupies. It may be in teresting to add that Mr. Childs did not know for what the money which he gave vas to be used, and when be found out t he object of It he immediately wrote a stinging editorial on " Mistaken Charity," Most of the people went over on the cars to Cape May City, and here the din was even worse than at the point. Some went lu bathing and their antic» amused the remainder of the CôMp&ftÿ: One gentleman la particular, who is a well known light weight, weighing only 275 pounds, kept the others laughing, although he could find nothing funny himself. As he was goiug down the beach he accidentally struck his toe on a shell and the queer performance« quickly drew a sympathetic (Î ) crowd shout him, all of whom tried to help him along, generally ending each effort hv letting him suddedly drop. But the climax of his comicality was reached when he went Into the water and tried to swim. The water entered his month, cars and eyes,aud sputtering and spitting lie lost no time in house and getting civilized clothing There were, fortunately, no idiots with the excursion of the who think it go ont in the water depth, and then drowned in an attempt to save them from a like fate. While at Cape May City, one of the amusements of the urchins there at tracted some attention. This Is net fishing. When the tide ebbs little hol lows are left full of water small fish and crabs congregate and the Cape May boy with net in hand aud trousers rolled up wades in and hauls the members of the finny tribe ' to the surface. At times ho we ce- the crab sometimes retaliates by catching the un wary youngsters pedal extremities thus eliciting numerous howls of anguish. At 8 o'clock the steamer turned her prow homewards. On the home trip ths hearts of the keepers of the refreshment boothes were gladdened, very muchly, by the numerous attacks made on their goods by the young ladies at the expense of their gentlemen friends. The anti diluvi an deviled crabs and "hot" fried oysters disappeared so quickly that the dealeis were almost frightened. At 9,30 o'clock the passengers arrived in this city and as soon as possible after wards most of them had retired to dream of the deviled crab's revenge and kindred subjects. ■ -■! was not few a going to the bathing his "corporealty" Into sort who ■ Is their duty to beyond their have others els« Iu these Lawn Party Postponed.
