Work has been commenced on the Sea Isle and Ocean City Railroad, but it is not anticipated that it will be completed before the latter part of July. i The heaviest shad caught this sea son in the Delaware, so far reported, was taken one day last week, at Penns grove, and weighed eight pounds two ounces. The largest raft that ever floated down the Delaware river passed down on Thursday of last week. It was 80 leet wide and contained 200,000 feet of lumber. At the charter election at Boonton, on Saturday, the Citizens’ Temperance ticket was successful. George W. Es ten was elected Mayor over Thomas Byard by 140 majority. It is stated that the Glassboro exten sion of the Williamstown Railroad will probably be run through to Penns grove pier, on the Delaware river, at an early day. The company’s charter contains this franchise. On Thursday W. S. Price, of Ocean port, caught a shad weighing about four pounds, in the Shrewsbury, at Oceanport, near the sedges. It is he lieved to be the first shad ever caught in the South Shrewsbury river. A. M. Kimble, of Monroe, Sussex County, stocked a pond with black bass about three years ago. Since that time numbers of them have been taken. Last Friday Mr. Kimble captured one that weighed a trifle over five pounds. I. W. B. Gandy, of Dennisville, Cape May County, fell into the hold of a vessel in which he was at work, a few days since, and was so badly injured about the head and shoulders that but little hope is entertained of his re covery. John Tully, a patient in the Burling ton County almshouse, wandered away from that institution in February. His decomposed body was found in the pines, near Shamong station, by a party of hunters. Tully was 00 years old and insane. The body of Louis Berrnes, a wealthy brewerof Union Hill, who disappeared recently, was found in Penn Horn creek on Thursday. It is supposed that he committed suicide while suf fering from temporary insanity. He was thirty-five years old. On Thursday evening last the body of ex-Freeholder George Neefus was found in his well at Plattville, Mon mouth County. Mr. Neefus was nearly 03 years old, and for some time has been in ill health. During the absence of his family he loaded a gun and shot himself, the charge entering his lower jaw. He then ran nearly 300 yards and ended his life by jumping into a well. Patrick McGuire, who was the ele vtnur uuj iu me uniieu stales Hotel, New York, was taken to Little Falls, on Thursday last, by Chief Graul, of Paterson. McGuire is accused of caus ing the death of Moses Stanton, a farmer’s lad, who worked beside him at Beatty’s carpet mills. It is alleged that in September last Stanton either stumbled into a vat of caustic soda, when pursued by McGuire, or was pushed in. Richmond Oakes, 19 years of age, shot himself in the breast at Port Jer vis, N. Y., on Wednesday of last week, and died on Thursday. Oakes lived at Passaic, and had been employed in the press room of the Paterson Press. Re cently he left his situation in the hope of securing a better one. Failing in this, it is thought he became despond ent and ended his life. Another as signed cause for the act, is grief at the recent death of an older brother. Mabee and English have created great interest in the temperance cause in Rahway. Gordon’s Opera House is filled every night. Four hundred per sons signed the pledge in two nights, and red ribbons are to be seen upon many who heretofore have been hard drinkers. Some of the best known res idents have signed the pledge and are working faithfully in the cause. When Josephus Shann, an ex-member of As sembly, C. H. Miller, W. Harry Hall, Alfred Jewell, Stewart C. Shann, and many others signed the pledge, the outburst of applause lasted for fifteen minutes. Several grog shop keep ers are anxious to have their license fee refunded, and say that they will discontinue the business if they can get the rebate. The trial of Charles Van Sciver, for throwing vitriol upon Mrs. Carrie E. Vandegrift, in Burlington, in Febru ary last, resulted in a verdict of guilty. The verdict caused much surprise, as nearly every one expected the jury would acquit the defendant, especially after the charge of Judge Parker, which was considered to be in the de fendant’s favor. A motion for a new trial will be made. Joseph Dobson and Captain Craig report that on Tuesday of last week they saw a sea lion in Woodbury creek. Dobson was in a boat, and, being un armed, sought the bank for fear of be ing attacked by the monster which he describes as being at least five feet long. Captain Craig armed himseif with a shot gun, but was unable to get a shot at it. It is supposed to be the same which was seen at the mouth of the Schuylkill some days ago. Ex-Senator Jarrard, the Middlesex County Collector, who was convicted of forgery recently was sentenced to what would have been sixty.five years in prison at hard labor but for a re mark of Judge Scudder that the sen tences should run concurrently. The sentence amounts to ten years at hard labor and to pay a fine of $1,000. Pleading guilty to the remaining in dictments he received ten years each on three charges of forgery, and five years each on three charges of embez zlement, without any fine. Joseph Boss, of Andover, Sussex County, and two companions went eel ing on Cranberry Reservoir on Satur : day night last, taking some hard cider | with them. About two o’clock on , ounuav morning tne boat capsized, ! and all were thrown out. Boss stand ! ing in the bow of the boat was thrown i father than his companions, who were j sitting down, and saved themselves by ; grasping the boat. Boss’s body was ; recovered on Sunday within about ten feet of the shore. He was about 3o years old, and leaves a widow and two ! children. The Paterson Guardian records the heroic act of a Bergen county farmer at Riverside, on Saturday evening. While on his way home, near the end of the horse railroad track, at 9 o’clock, he saw a small house on fire; and rushing in found the sole occupants to be two colored children whose pa rents were absent. The farmer res cued the little ones by running through flames. One of the children and the man were severely burned. After placing the children with neighbors the man drove off, refusing to give his name. The Democratic State Convention to elect delegates to the party’s Na tional Convention will be held at Tren ton on May 19th. Senator McPherson is said to be the leading candidate for Delegate-at-Large and as he is sup posed to divide the responsibility for the management of the Democratic party with Governor Abbett, he will probably be elected. Governor Abbett will very likely be another. New Jer j sey has had a Presidential candidate of its own pretty regularly in the past and it is a safe way to avoid unpleas ant combinations. A Manasquan, N. J., farmer opened an account in the bank of that village j last week. He startled the teller by presenting, among other checks, one for $172 dated in 1872, and drawn by a commission house in New York to the farmer’s order. He had received it ; for produce sent the merchant twelve ' years ago, and put it away in the : stocking that held his gold and silver. The check was duly honored, although the merchant had often wondered where the check had gone to. He had | the use of the money all these years, ! the farmer losing in interest $123.84. A dispatch to the New York Tribune j on Monday last states that the forest tires in the pines south of Matawan, . N. J., are rapidly spreading. It is on the same ground as the disasterous fire of thirty years ago, when thou sands of dollars’ worth of timber and j other property were destroyed. It then burned through to the ocean. The damage already done will reach up in the thousands. North of Mat awan the fires have again started and j the farmers have for the second time j began to fight the flames. A careful ! estimate places the damage already ! done near Bordentown at $4/5,000 or $50,000. Altogether about 4,500 acres i of timber-land has been burned over. At Marlboro the fires are smoldering, but are being carefully watched. The fires at Bordentown started, it is said, from a farmer carelessly seeting fire to a pile of brush. A number of the losers by the fires are talking of hold ing him responsible for the damage. It will probably be taken to the courts. The fires have already ruined the huckleberry crop. Levi I). Jarrard, ex-State Senator from Middlesex County, was taken to the State Prison on Monday there to begin a ten years term of imprison ment. A few years ago Jarrard held a leading position in the Senate, and was a trusted man in the councils of his party. To-day he occupies a felon's cel!! What a terrible spectacle, and a warning! Poor Jarrard, who would have dreamed that he -would come to such an end! Susan Gaskill. 80 years old, was bound, gagged and feloniously as saulted in Recklesstown, Burlington county, at midnight on Sunday by Lewis Higgins, a neighbor. She of ered him all the money she had to de part without molesting her, but he did not heed her entreaties. He wras four hours in the house. Mrs. Gaskill was not released from her bonds until late on Sunday, when neighbors dis covered her. She was nearly dead and is not expected to recover. Hig gins was preparing for ilight when ar rested. Justice Reed sent liiin to Mount Holly jail, refusing to accept bail. The Star of the Cape, of Cape May City, is authority for the following: Miss Saliie Hildreth, of the Court House, lost a fine gold breastpin in a very mysterious manner. It could not be found anywhere, though dilligent search had been made. Mr. Page R. Crawford, Jr., residing next door, dreamed that the pin -was in a cer tain place about the kitchen cupboard rtf 4-U - TT i 1 J .. 11 • lCBIUCUUO, nil a SO in formed Miss Sallie. Together thev tested the dream. In order to reach the place designated it was necessary to cut a hole through the cupboard. They did so, and behold, there was a mouse bed and the missing pin there in. Herman Scharff, aged 26 years, who was employed in ex-Assemblyman Hill’s Marion brewery, at Newark, met with a horrible accident on Thursday afternoon. He was engaged in varn ishing a lager beer vat, and though re peatedly warned not to use a lighted candle, he did so. The varnish can, an open one was attached to his body as ne descended into the vat, and after being at work with the candle for a short time, a piece of burning wick fell into the can. The varnish imme diately ignited, and before Scharff had an opportunity to unloosen the belt which held the can, he wras on fire. He was horribly burned before as sistance reached him, and cannot re cover. At the farm house of Samuel C. Alien, a few miles out of Salem, on Thursday night, Lizzie Reason, a colored woman, aged 25, retired about 9 o’clock taking with her a coal oil lamp. No one but Mrs. Allen was in the house at the time. A colored man named Trusty, in walking by the house an hour later, heard a woman scream, and, going to the side yard, found Lizzie Reason en veloped in flames. Soon after Mrs Allen came to her assistance, the un fortunate girl fell to the ground dead, being literally burned to a crisp. Upon going to the girl’s room her bed was found in flames. The deceased had once been detected lying asleep in her room with her lamp placed near heron the bed and it is supposed she did the same thing again. In her sleep she probably overturned the lamp, which set fire to her clothing. For years past it has been the dan gerous custom of boys in the spring to start fires in the large tracts of waste land that form a considerable portion, of the northern part of Cecil County* Maryland, merely for the fun of seeing the tall grasses burn. For several weeks past little rain has fallen in that region, and everything is as dry as tinder. Last Thursday some young sters, near Charlestown, set fire to a large tract of underbrush. A high westerly wind was blowing, and the flames were soon beyond control. The fire has been the most destructive that has ever occurred in that State. A tract eight miles in length and three in width has been traversed by the flames, and a large number of barns, and other buildings were burned.. The flames approached dangerously near Elkton, the county seat, on Sat urday, but a change of wind saved the town. Late reports from North-Eastern Texas indicate considerable damage by floods during the past few days. Many small streams are higher than ever before, and in some instances every bridge has been swept away. The rain-fall at Houston, a leading city in that State, for twenty-four hours was over five inches. In a large portion of the flooded district the cot ton growth has been retarded from three to four weeks.
