CU) ton's Old Home Christiana Creek A Walk Around Wilmington Scen in the Early Horning. Sjxciallo The EepuUican. "Wilmington, Del., March 25. The Bayards and the Saulsburys have represented Del aware so long in the National Congress that many persons think there are no other families of any account in the State; but this is very far from the truth, forthercarcnotonlymanyable, but some very brilliant men here, and it would not do to collect too much intellect upon so small an area, for there would be danger of it tipping up, and somebody might get hurt, and that might please Colonel Bob Ingcrsoll; for if there is anything he holds in detestation it is this same little State. He could not be induced to look with favor upon anything pertaining to it not even a basketful of her most lucious peaches. Senator Bayard is very popular in this his native place, and although many are politically opposed to him, socially they are his warm friends. About eight or ten miles south of this city is the old home of one of Del awares most brilliant statesmen, THE LATE JOUN M. CLAYTON. The mansion is very large, and is built of brick. It is surrounded with extensive grounds filled with handsome shrubbery, peach, plum, pear, and apple trees. There is a fine barn, with every convenience for storing grain and the care of stock. Before he built this house, Mr. Clayton occupied an old fashioned mansion upon the adjoining farm, which he afterward sold; it was during tho excite ment of the Mexican war, and the euphonious names of the Mexican battlo-ficlds were pleasant to his ear, so he named the old place "Buena Vista," and when he built the new house he called it "Palo Alto," by which namo it Is still known. Mr. Claytan left no children, and the homestead became the property of his nephew, who survived him but a few years. It is now the home of his grand-niece, who is a very pretty and a very charming young lady. Mr. Clayton belonged to the old lyhig party, and was a capital stump speaker. During the Taylor campaign he was an nounced to speak at a mass-meeting held at the Brandy wine Springs. As no building large enough could be obtained, it was decided to hold the meeting in a ravine, the speaker standing in the valley and his audience ranged in seats upon the hill-sides. People flocked from all parts of the surrounding country to hear him, some on horse back, some in wagons, on foot, on mule-back, nnd even ox-carts were pressed into the service. His speech abounded with wit and anecdote, which kept his hearers in KOAR3 OF LAUGHTER ; and when he told the story of the " Yorkshlreman and the shilling" in his inimitable way it brought down the house, or, rather, the hills. The old Swedes' Church, in this city, Is an object of great Interest. It was built by the Swedish settlers of the State in 1C9S, Is very quaint in appearance, and in the grave-yard attached are burled tho ancestors of many of the oldest families here. On Chris tiana Creek, and within the present limits of the city, there is a small rocky promontory, upon which the first Swedish colony in America landed (April, 163S),and around which was planted the first permanent European settle ment in the valley of the Delaware. Wilmington is a manufacturing city, and the place where iron ship building was first carrfed on in this country, and is still a leading scat of that industry. A walk around the ship-yards is both instructive and en tertaining. There arc also carriage factories, mo rocco factories, foundries, and extensive works for the manufacture of cars. TWO OR THREE MILES NORTH OF THE CITY there nre extensive powder works. The country in the vicinity Is very beautiful, with pretty little streams, shady drives, and grassy slopes; but 'tis dangerous ground. There is no knowing at what moment an explosion may occur, and what tho result may be. There aro quite a number of hand some residences near the works belonging to the different members of the well-known family, orginally from France, and who established the manufacture of powder in Delaware. The sensa tion is uot a pleasant one to be in one of these houses, and while iudulging in the luxury of an afternoon nap, to be suddenly awakened by a clap of thunder, as it were, and in a moment have the house rock from cellar to garret and every window in it shattered ; or some bright, pleasant morning, when seated upon the piazza enjoying an interesting book, to be startled by something, you hardly know what, and, looking up, perceive heads, arms, and limbs flying up in tho air like feathers. 'With the venerable Mrs. Partington, some of the residents would much prefer being upon "visa-versa." Notwithstanding the danger, it is said men can always be obtained to. work in the mills. One reason of this is the HIGH WAGES PAID, and another there is some provision made for the widows and orphans in case of accident. There was an explosion Monday morning, but they aro not so frequent in these mills as they were a few years since. Every precaution is taken to guard against them, and the buildings arc very slightly built. When one does occur very often the roof only is lifted, leaving the walls intact; but at tho some time'I for one would rather not run any risks in that line. Although Wilmington is a large and thorough business city, yet the primitive style of market is still in vogue. The country wagons, some of them very old and forlorn, too, uro backed up close to the sidewalk, on the sunny side in winter and the shady side in summer. The horses are removed, and the vender stands near the back ot the wagon with his wares for sale. THE SCENE EAltLY IN THE MORNING is a novel one, and one not soon forgotten. The chatter of the buxom market women, whose only opportunity for gossip is upon market day ; the eager crowd of purchasers with basket In hand old men, young men, housekeeper?, pretty girls; the jostling, the crowding, tho display of fruits and vegetables, rolls of golden butter, and baskets full offroheggs, are a curious sight; and, strange to say, all this, until within a very few years past, was upon Market street, the principal business street of the city. At pres ent the market wagons aro confined to an unimportant stieet. There are a number of Quakers, or Friends, here, and the sweet "thee" and "thou" is almost as common as "you" and "your." Some of the most substantial farmers in New Castle County belong to this sect, and their houses and farms are perfect patterns of neatness nnd thrift. 5ruch interest Is felt here in the new railroad to be built this spring, and it is expected to have part of it completed by June. VISITOR. Kuorhliic I)omii n Defective. Detective Yoss yesterday arrested a colored thief named Holmes, charged with steal ins a watch, and was calmly proceeding toward headquarters with his prisoner when the alley leading to the Herdic car-stables was reached. Here nolmes caught the detective napping nnd dealt him a terrific blow on the burr of the ear, knocking him completely out of time. A few stridessumced to give Vos as-ailaut a lead which he was unable to overcome, and, much to his cha grin, he saw his prisoner disappear in the dis tance. The. affair happened about two o'clock, and at a spot on the Avenue usually crowded -with pedestrians. At the time of the knock1-. down, however, no one was near, accord ing to Mr. Voss, Who stated that the blow " up set his recollection." Holmes is said to live on the Island with his sister, and if he is captured again the detectives promise to make it warm for him. A crazy man, whom Detective McDevItt took into custody, tried to make a sand-bag of the detective's person. In fact, a detective's lot is not much happier than a policeman's. Joyona Jonndnbs. One of the social events of this season in East Washington was the entertainment given by Eureka Council, So. 8, Sons of Jonadab, on last Thursday evening, when the hospitality of the council was enjoyed by some two hundred guests. Altera s-hort literary programme, which included an original reading by Mr.Seth L. Clark, and a finely rendered recitation by J. r. McCormick, of Jersey City, the guests were placed in charge of floor manager LewisThompson.and several happy hours.were passed under his care. After dancing, aline collation, prepared by the ladies, was par taken of, and in the small hours of Friday morn ing friends reluctantly separated. Among the guests were S. P. Halvor Nelson, G. C. John Berry and Mrs. Berry, P. G. C. William II. Walker, Mrs., and Miss Walker, G.S.C. P. Stetson, J. W. Weed, W.C., Pioneer Council; nenry Brewer, Invincible Council, and the officers and members of Spartan Council, with their ladies. The members of Eureka CouncU desire to thnnk Mr. T. F. McCauley, who added much to the success of the entertainment. Tlic O-Street JlnrJicl Question. The Commissioners j-estcrday trans mitted a reply to the memorial of the stall-holders of the O-street market, denying their requests for permission to have a market on the Seventh street side of the square and to occupy their present stalls until September next. The Commissioners state first that the action of Congress indicates that it is not desirable to have the school and market in close proximity to each other; and, second, that as k is intended to commence the erection of the school building as soon after the 1st of July as pos sible, the second request could not be granted.

At a meeting of the post-graduates for 1SS1 of the National University Law School the fol lowing officers were elected : President, William Newell; vice-president, George W.Ward; secre tary, J. C.

The gallant Colonel possesses all the proper qualifications to make an efficient and popular officer. In the case of Sylvester Mayliew against Christian Ruppert, wherein the jury gave the plaintiff a verdict for $3,500, all the parties to the suit have filed affidavits that the judgment has been satisfied, and asking that an entry be made in the record to that effect. Mr. N. n. Miller ap peared for the assignee, J. Hoffman Smith. General John Coughlin, the druggist, corner of Ninth and F streets, was arraigned iu the Police Court, yesterday, charged with selling liquor without a license, James H. Green, who stated that he was employed by the police authori ties to find out what druggists are violating the liquor laws, appearing against him. It was shown that Green had bought a pint of whisky at the store, but Judge Snell, ruling that one sale did not constitute a business, dismissed the case. s- LE DROIT PARK. Improvements Proposed by the Properly Oil uers. In response to a call issued, there was a Very full attendance of the members of Le Droit Park Property Owners Association lastnightin the park. The meeting was called to order by Mr. W. Scott Smith, the president of the association, who proceeded to state what had been done since tho last meeting to promote the interests of the park and the large number of residents living therein. The first business 'before the association was tho election of officers for the ensuing year. On motion of General W. W. Birncy, Mr. W. Scott Smith was unanimously re-elected presi dent of the association, Colonel O. II. Irish was nominated and elected vice-president; James H. McGill, secretary; J.J.Albright, treasurer, and E. B. Ba'rnum the additional member of the execu tive committee. The president said he had re cently had an interview with the District Commis sioners, and that the lighting of two additional gas lamps in the park had been ordered. He had also seen the Major and Superintendent of Police about giving the park better police protection, and had received assurances that the matter should receive prompt attention, and an officer detailed specially for night duty in tho park. General Birncy submitted a motion, which was adopted, that a vote of thanks be extended to the president of tho association for his active efforts during the past year in behalf of the park. The question of opening up a new street on the east side of the Park, running from Boundary street through to the Soldiers Home, then came up, and gavo rise to considerable discussion, all concurring in the opinion that such a street was needed. A resolution was then offered and adopted that the members of the association will co-operate heartily With the"District Commissioners In se curing the opening of such a street and road, and instructing the executive committee to take steps to make effective such co-operation. Attention was directed to the fact that all the houses and a large amount of property in the Park were greatly exposed and jeopardized in case of a fire by the action of the water department in shutting off the pressure of water between the hours of midnight and five' o'clock a. m., and thus practically pre senting the flow of water in the park. Tho execu tive committee were directed to look into the mat ter and endeavor to have it remedied ns soon as possible. The need of a fire-engine in the northern section of the city was regarded as very pressing. Afler discussing various other matters and direct ing that rules be prepared for the government and guidance of the special day-policemen, the meeting adjourned. ST. ELIZABETH OPERA-HOUSE. A Jlnalcnl and Dramatic iiterlalumeiit at the luiauu Asjluia. The entertainment at St. Elizabeth's Asylum for tho Insane last evening gave.great sat isfaction to tho inmates who witnessed it.

Toiic Editor of The Jtr jittUtam : If I may be permitted through the medium of your public-spirited paper to utter a growl or two against certain public grievances, my wrath thereat may'be partially appeased, and I in less danger of explosion. As growl No. 1, I would call the attention of the Health Officer, or any other party whom It may concern, to the fact that a dog lies dead and cold on Ninth street, between N and O northwest, near the curbing on the west side has been there for three days, and should be laid away under the daisies, if tho efficient Health Department caji spare the time to attend to it, even if at the expense of omitting to furnish for one day the tuual ar ticle for the prcsi laudatory of its en ergy and efficiency. For growl No. 1!, I wish to state that a friend of mine visited Ford's Opera nouse with his Wife on Wednesday evening, taking balcony seals. Each noticed the entire lack of ventilation, and as the evening wore on the air, or lack of air, became more and more oppressive, and after sturdy imt unsuccessful attempts on the part of my friend to open the windows in that part of the house, which, by the way, arc all battened down, they were forced to retire, missing the per formance of " Toodles," the particular play they desired to sec enacted by Mr. Clarke and his com pany. BRUNO. A RAILROAD'S RESPONSIBILITY. The Baltimore and Potomac Company Wla One Salt Another One on Trial. The case of Valentine Eoth against the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company, wherein Roth sued the railroad company for the value of the services of his daughter, a little girl eight years old, who was struck by a passing train and killed, was concluded yesterday by the court directing the jury to bring in a verdict for the defendant. At the conclusion of the xlaintifl"s evidence a motion was made for this purpose, which the court granted. The ground t:f the de cision was that the father of this little child had been in the habit of sending hec across Virginia avenue, on which three railroad tracks ran, to carry milk about the neighborhood, and that on this day she had gone over, probably, for the pur pose of visiting an aunt who lived on the opposite side of the street. The limited" express came in from New York, and the child, when first seen, was standing in the ditch at the side of the road, between Third und Four-aud-a-half streets, aud when the train came by the engine passed her, but one of the cars struck her oa the head and killed her. No one on the engine or train saw her. The child was deaf and dumb, and the court held that it was gross carelessness on tho part of the parents to permit her to go across thisstreet in that way, and that, being in the habit of sending her across the railroad track for the purpose of deliver ing milk, Ac, it would be presumed that she had gone over this dangerous place by their consent. The verdict was, therefore, rendered in behalf of the railroad company. Mr. Birncy appeared for the plaintiff, aud Enoch Totten, esq., for the rail road company. The Baltimore'and Potomac Railroad Company at present is absorbing the entire attention of the Circuit Court. Yesterday, after finishing with the case of Valentine Roth against that corporation, the suit brought by Dennis Pumphrey against the road came on for hearing. This U an action filed by Messrs. R. T. Merrick and William F. Mattingly in behalf of the plnintiff for20,000 damages. In April, 187S, Edison Pumphrey, a lad about ten years of age, son of the complainant, was run over by a train at Virginia avenue nnd Four- and-a-half street, and his left leg was cut off. below the knee. The father entered, a suit for damages to the amount above stated. The. little fellow was in court yesterday, moving nbout on his crutches. The company pleads that there was neither carelessness nor negligence on Its part. AYhen the court adjourned yesterday Colonel Enoch Totten, counsel for the company, was put ting in the evidence for his side. The case will be finished next Monday, to which time the jury was respited. THE BIG PRINTING OFFICE. Beginning; Work: on the Extension A Wholesale Furlough In Proapcct. Ground was broken on Wednesday last for the new addition to the Government Printing Office. Congress appropriated StO.OOu for this work, upon the plans submitted to the committees by Architect Clark, at the request of Mr. Defrees. An adjoining lot of ground was purchased upon which to build n new stable, the old one to be torn down, occupying as it did space upon which the addition is to be built. This addition is to be four stories high with a basement, and will be 94 by 60 feet. The basement will bo used to store fuel ; the first story asa yaultforthestereotypeplales; thesccond story will be the specification room; the third an addition to the bindery, and the fourth an extension of the folding-room. Tho additional structure will be built of brick, and be a3 nearly fire-proof as the nature of its materials w ill allow. The plan of the addition is in outward appearance precisely the same as the main building. Archi tect of the Capitol Clark is superintending the construction, most of which will be done by day's work under the supervision of assistant superin tendents. It is expected to have the whole job completed by the 1st of October. The failure of Congress to appropriate for tho Govern ment Printing Office according to Mr. Defrees' estimates leaves such a want of funds, it is stated, that it will be absolutely necessary to furlough hundreds of employees between this and the 1st of July. The number of these will probably reach eight hundred. The furloughiug will be gradual, and, although great suffering must eu;ue, it will be done in such manner as to cause the minimum of annoyance. There will be probably three hun dred in the folding-room, most of them women, who will thus be temporarily deprived of work through the falso "economy" principles of the majority in the last Congress. NAVY-YARD NEWS. Expedition of the TTorktown Cominlidan Vessel Expected Here.
