Maybee and English, the temperance revivalists, have begun their campaign in Beverly, Burlington Co. They are drawing large crowds. At the opening of the Gloucester County Court, Justice Parker directed the Grand Jury to inquire into the re ported brutal treatment of a fox at Williamstown last Winter. A spark from an Erie Railroad en gine, recently set Are to an oil car on the Hackensack Meadows. The tank avnlArln/1 onffirwn Am,, 4- „ nr> n car. The damage was $10,000. William Barber, a young man at Newton, Sussex County, was horse whipped by Mrs. Dyas, a few days ago, for accidentally throwing a handful of peanut shells into the lady’s face and then neglecting to apologize. A petition is being circulated for signatures at Atlantic City, praying Congress for an appropriation of $75, 000, to be applied to the deepening of the channel over the bar at the en trance of the harbor at that place. The late Larnont Dupont, the presi dent of the Repaupo Chemical Com pany, who was killed at the works at Gibbstown, Gloucester County, while experimenting with powerful explo sives a few days since, leaves ijn estate, valued at over $1,000,000. Thomas De Bow, residing near Jack son’s Mills, Ocean County, was thrown from his wagon recently, and run over, sustaining injuries from which he died in a few hours. He was about 50 years old, and leaves a widow and several children. At Atlantic City the Directors of the Camden and Atlantic Railroad Excur sion House, “Sea Breeze,’’ have voted to expend $5,000 in improvements to the property. The house will be man aged this season also by John Tren with, of Philadelphia. The father of Grace, the Cape May Court House boy charged with trying to poison his father, mother and other members of the family by putting poison in the coffee, is now trying to protect the boy’s good name from the many charges preferred against him. German Republicans of Newark have decided to form a central organization for the County and State, in order to consolidate the German vote for the j coming Campaign. Charles M. The- j beratli is president. An effort will be 1 made to elect a German delegate to Chicago. Sigismund Zanowski last May lost three fingers from his right hand, while working at a buzz plane in the Domestic Sewing Machine Works at Newark. A suit was withdrawn re cently, the company having agreed to pay if(500, to give him employment for ten years, and to employ his father for a term of years. On Saturday a vicious bull belong ing to David Beilis, of Unionville, Hunterdon County, attacked one of the farm hands, knocking him down and goring him in the breast. The maddened beast was driven off with pitchforks in the hands of Mr. Beilis [ and his son, and the injured man res cued. It was found that three of his ribs were broken, and he was badly bruised. Mrs. Catharine Bailey, aged 50 years, was burned to death on Monday even iiig ui iitwt wceiv, at iit?r uume xu j: u-ii wood township, Union County. She was intoxicated, and alone in the house at the time; and it is thought that while trying to fill a kerosene lamp, she set fire to her clothing. The lamp was found on the floor broken, and the can of oil on the table near by. When her husband came home at midnight, she was dead and her clothing still burn ing. Among the trout and various other kinds of fish exhibited recently in Ful ton Market, New York, were a number of fine German carp from the fish ponds of Captain Madery at Little Falls, Passaic County. Mr. Madery has for a long time taken great inter est in fish culture and his carp are ad mitted to be the finest in the country. He has a number of varieties of the fish and has orders from all over the country. The carp has a wonderful resemblance to the common American sucker, and in fact belongs to that family and partakes of the peculiarities of that fish. Under some circumstan ces a carp is not fit to eat and under others it is very fine food. Ilev. Bishop Faulkner, late of Wash- ' ngton, has been selected as the new ■ector of St. Mark's Church, at Orange, Essex Co., if he will accept. He has , seen cabled to in Europe, where he is , ;raveling. Bridget Caldwell was killed at New irk, a few evenings since, by falling from the Fillmore street bridge of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad. She was standing on the edge of the bridge to avoid a passing train, when i gust of wind blew her off, and she fell into the street below. She was dead when taken up. The barn of Theodore Anderson, about one mile from Flemington, Hun terdon Co., was destroyed by fire one day last week, together with all its oontents, consisting of about thirty tons of hay, two horses, two cows, a mule, wagons, harness and all the farming machinery. The loss is about |3,500, partially insured. One of the queerest drowning aeci- j dents on record took place near Union Beach, Monmouth County, a day or two ago. John McManon. of Gran ville, left Keyport for home one night in a light farm wagon. He was intox icated. His friends became alarmed when the missing man’s horse put in an appearance with the front wheels of the wagon. The searching party found;the wagon-box on the beach near Waycake and the hind wheels of the wagon on the shore at Unionville. Later McMahon’s body was found in the surf on Goose Bar. The supposi tion is that he drove the horse out into the water as far as it would go and then fell asleep, and that the tide lifted the wagon-box, which was water-tight, and which floated off, carrying McMa hon with it. When the box got loos ened it released the horse, front wheels and shafts. Last Winter a Philadelphia woman, j because of her poverty, was compelled to put her child in a “home for chil-! dren.” A few days ago she went to ; the home for the purpose of obtaining j possession of her child, and was told that it had been given in charge of a farmer living between Columbus and ! Bnrrlentnwn wlln hnrl no*raorl tA tnl/A care of the little thing. The name of the farmer was given as Charles Pier sing. Acting on this information, she went to Bordentown on Thursday and made diligent search for Mr. Piersing, but no such person could be found, and no farmer of that name was known in that vicinity. The poor woman was almost heurt broken over her failure, and said she did not suppose there was any possibility of learning the child’s whereabouts, as she had discovered that the farmer in whose charge it was given had not given his real name.” Lieut. John Engel closed his barber shop and billiard room at Hackensack, Bergen County, at 13 o’clock one night recently, and went to his home in Cot tage Place. When he opened the front door he discovered his wife lying in the ball. Her dress was discolored and torn and her hair dishevelled. Her hand clutched the brass handle on the lid of a box. Scattered about the floor were a number of five-dollar bills and i near an open window at the foot of the stairs was a large white bundle. When she revived her first words were: “Is the money safe?” Mrs. Engle said her niece bad re tired early with the little children. After awhile Mrs. Engel started to go up stairs to look after her infant child. She went through the parlor and when she opened the door leading to the hall she was confronted by a man standing on the stairs, near the foot, with a large bundle in his right hand and her husband’s money box under his left arm. Mrs. Ensrel is a muscular German woman, whose courage and presence of mind were fully attested a few years since, when she beat off a ruffian who attacked her in a secluded spot. She promptly gave battle to the intruder. Seizing the handle of the money box, she endeavored to wrench it from the man’s grasp. He dropped the bundle, and a fierce struggle fol lowed. Grasping her by the hair, he beat her head several times against the stair rail. Finally he endeavored to break her hold of the box by twist ing her wrist. At this point a noise outside led her to believe that her hus band was returning, and she called loudly for him, still clutching the box with one hand. The man dealt her a fierce blow on the breast. At the same instant the lid of the box broke open, and Mrs. Engel fell to the floor. She heard the window open, but remem bered nothing afterward until revived. Lieut. Engel says the box contained $300 in new five-dollar bills. As only eighteen of the bills were found it is supposed the'thief carried off twenty two of them in his hasty flight. The bundle which he left consisted of sil verware and wearing apparel, includ ing Lieut. Engel’s uniform,in all valued at $300. rHE GEORGIA NEGRO AGITATOR. ' The confidential circular?, which ! rohn Smith, the Georgia negro, is i lending throughout the country, in- j siting all negroes to riot, are singular ooking documents. They have evi lently been printed by an amateur on i small hand pres?. They read as fol ows: “All colored men are still op pressed. We are still under the heels 3f the whites. Unless we fight for our •ights, we will be in slavery again in ;wo years. Now is the time to fight, yeneral Grant has promised to send as an army from the North to sweep aur white tyrants from the face of the i ;arth. Remember the chains of sla- 1 very. Remember the whips and the i auction block. Our liberty can only 1 be saved by a great uprising. Now is i :he time; now is the hour. The col- i 3red men of Georgia are ready. Join 1 as, my brothers. Come one; coine all.” , These circulars are being sent out ( with irreat secrecv and are doinc harm nnong ignorant negroes. The vigi- • ance of the local authorities in the : 3tate, however, will preclude the pos- ; Ability of any uprising. Smith, the , eader, is said to have several other , lames, one of them in Georgia being ■ Jack Brown. He is tall and muscular • and is entirely uneducated. As a , speaker, he possesses magnetic influ- , ence over negroes and can lead them , to do anything he desires. An effort j is being made to capture him. If j caught he will doubtless be lynched, i There was great excitement in Ban gor, Maine, about 5 p. m. on Sunday. Where the Kenduskeag stream emp ties into the Penobscot river, the scene • was wild, in the extreme. Thousands i of logs, rafts of lumber and great float- 1 ing pieces of ice came rushing down, ] threatening to destroy bridges and other valuable property in the centre 1 of the city. Thousands of people filled the bridges and fringed the banks of the stream. The ice, under the influence of the late heavy rain, was forced down the Upper Kendus keag. Several dams i^ere injured, mills were carried away 0,000,000 « or 3,000,000 logs were swept down the Penobscot. Fortunately the ice had left that river and it was low tide at the time of the freshet. Otherwise the damage would have been extreme ly great. It is not possible to estimate the amount of loss already inflicted. The greatest damage was suffered by nr_ xi___ -.r ii. . i_ 1UU10V VV>) UIV/ W U 1JV1C VI IUV IVgCf who have lost, probably, not far from $100,000. This is the greatest freshet that has occurred in that lo cality since the one of 1845. A strange story comes from Hebron, a country town 'in Tolland County, Connecticut, where Seth Wheeler, a prominent Methodist, recently died. George Allyn was engaged to dig the grave in the Hebron town lot, which is on the farm of a private citizen, one Waterous. The village sexton pre vented Allyn from entering the ceme tery. Waterous then dug the grave. The funeral took place last Friday and after it was over Waterous began to cover up the grave. At this junc ture he was surprised by Allyn, with a small army of supporters, who ap peared upon the scene and demanded the right to fill up the grave as the dead man was an intimate and dear friend of his. Waterous refused to give up his spade, however, and the men then had an encouter, narrowly escaping, it is said falling into the grave in their tumble. The fight was prolonged. At length Allyn's friends seeing that he was no match for Waterous took hold of him and ran him out of the field. After resting Allyn proceeded to fill up the grave. Near the little village called Enon, ten miles southeast of Fort Worth, Texas, lives Mr. P. J. Manning, whose wife gave birth to twins about two weeks ago. Dr. Chambers say that the eldest, when born, weighed about one and a quarter pounds, and the other about five and a half pounds, a plump child. The smaller of the two could have been placed in a glass tumbler with ease. Its legs are not as large as a man’s index finger, and its length would not exceed that of the entire hand. The doctor reports the little fellow thriving. The forthcoming report of the Secre tary of the New' Jersey State Board of Health will give some statistics of di vorces in New Jersey. The returns of divorces for the five years ending in 1883 shows a total of 788 divorces gran ted, the largest number being in 1883. Of the total applications, 374 were by husbands and 514 by wives. The causes were: Adultery, 587; desertion, 4B5; cruelty, 33; bigamy, 11. PERILS OF A TORNADO. An Atlanta (Ga.) dispatch gives in :ident8 of the recent terrific tornado n that region. In Stewart county 'he three story frame mansion of Mrs trace Miller was lifted in the air. the fills upon which it rested were blown iway, and the house was dropped al nost exactly into its old position, where it now stands, with its founda fion sills gone. At Judge Wimberly’s he tornado struck a pine forest, and ’or five miles in a straight line left a tearing thirty feet wide. In Carroll county the storm first truck Lowell, where it blew away the louse of Mr. Ellis Smith, in which wo families lived. Two persons were filled, a mother and child. The wo nan’s dead body was blown 150 yards tnd one of her arms was twisted off. rhe child was blown against a tree mil tnauVinil *o 4nI1.. fPL „ __ o -— uoc :lone pits has greatly lessened the langers to life. Thirty persons took ■efuge in Doctor Knox's, and an equal lumber in that of Mr. Dailey, until ! o’clock in the morning. They lis ened to the roaring of the wind and hunder, and at intervals fell upon heir knees in prayer. A short lull ollowing, at about 2 o'clock they ipened the pit and found a starlit sky ibove them, and not a trace of the ianger there which had played such rnvoc below. The loss of live stock n Carroll county is not less than $100, 100, while the clean sweep of resi lences, fences, etc., involves a loss vhich $300,000 cannot replace. The storm skipped about 100 mites vithout doing much damage, when it itruck the Echols’ settlement in Milton sounty. Hail stones as big as saucers ell with such force as to cut off large imbs of trees. Some of the stones vere live inches square. At William Green’s seventeen persons crowded nto a small cellar and did not venture jut until next day. In Hall county two women and seven children were sitting by the Sreplace. The frame of the building was lifted up and carried away, leay ing the family sitting in amazement A scantling fifteen feet long was driven into the ground to one-third its length. At the Main place the roof of a house was lifted off and set upon the top of a pine tree, where it balanced and still stands. In the vicinity of Townville, S. C., seven persons were killed. In 1881 the Rio Grande Sugar Com pany purchased property, erected buildings and bought and leased over 3,000 acres of land at Rio Grande, Cape May county, for the purpose of cultivating sugar cane. Access to a portion of their land is gained by a private road owned by Noah Hand, proprietor of the Rio Grande Mills. Mr. Hand informed the sugar compa ny, as owner of the road, of his desire to sell, and was told that within a few months the company would purchase his mill property, and thus acquire the use of the road, with the under standing that in the meanwhile the sugar company should keep the road in good repair. After waiting nearly two years for the sugar people to make good tlieir promises, and communicat ing with various officers of the compa ny, he has at length been informed that when the company gets ready the road will be fixed, and not until then. On Tuesday Mr. Hand filed a bill in equity against the sugar com pany in the Court of Chancery, aver ring these facts. He accordingly asks the Court to enjoin the sugar comany from further using his road. Addi tional suit has been brought in the Supreme Court against the company for $5,000 damages, and against the present lessees to the works, George C. Potts & Co., of Philadelphia, for $3,000. The scene of the wreck of the “Daniel Steinuiann,” of Sainbro, on the Nova Scotian coast, is a memorable one. All along this iron-bound and rocky coast innumerable vessels have been lost. The greatest calamity, however, [ on record in this vicinity is the loss of ! the White Star steamer “Atlantic” on Meagher’s Rock, near Cape Prospect, twenty-two miles west of Halifax. In this wreck, which occurred on March 31, 1873, 500 lives were lost out of a total of 978. — ■ ___ — The tishermen say that there is proni i ise of an abundant supply of shad this season. How they know it would please a philosopher to learn, but the weather is an indication. The shad leave the deep waters as the sun has fairly warmed the shallower streams and travel in pairs for up the rivers. The quantity of the supply must -al ways depend largely upon the weather.
