The schooner Abbie S., loaded with wood left for Philadelphia, on Monday. The Presbyterians are going to have a grand strawberry festival on Satur day, June 7th. The question seems to be why is the hole in the road at Rocap’s Run al lowed to remain so long without being permanently filled up with something that will stay. It has certainly re mained long enough in the condition it now is. Let it be filled up at once thereby satisfying the traveling public. While Nathan Duffield, of Sayres Neck was at work in his meadows, and his housekeeper being in Bridgeton at the time, his house was entered on Thursday, the thief finding an entrance by prying off a shutter.

A vessel load of salt hay baled and owned by Mr. David McBride, of Bridgeton, was Iving alone- side the wharf at Greenwich on Tuesday, and carted by learns to the N. J. Southern Railroad. Salt hay has at last become a valuable commodity, and marsh property becomes more valuable every year. Our farmers who live near to them have always used larger or smaller quantities as manure for many years; but until such large amounts were required for packing purposes, the price was never sufficient to make it worth while to go to much trouble and expense to bale and ship it. As food for cattle, when new, without grain, it is not very good, but since the chemists have told us to feed stuff rich in albuminoids, feeders have discover ed that even salt hay can be made very valuable in producing beef, by keep • ing the animals improving all Winter, at a moderate cost. A fine shower on Monday night, put new heart into the average granger. Previously the dust that arose under the harrow from the rolling of clods, etc., was enough to smother a man’s ambition. Hay will be a better crop for more rain. Strawberries must have been very poor without it. Corn will hurry up to store its belated green blades, and the fields will smile with abundant harvest. Granted the law to be as it is, why should a man who has the power to help somebody, use the same to help his enemies? If only a limited few may publish the laws, etc., why should not the Senator give it to those who will not abuse him? Conundrum No. 2. Why should it not be as easy to have a county paper stopped, when one de sires to stop it, as one of the great city papers. News is extremely scarce. Every body seems to bo verv hard nt. wnrlt anil there is no time for anything else. Mr. Tlios. Wood, of Salem, who eon tinues to own the Buena Vista proper ty, was down to Greenwich last week, looking after a little business. Fish are as scarce as news. Our amateurs have not yet started after the blue fish, and shad seem to have gone up the river (or up the spout). Pork and potatoes will have to be the standard diet, if we are not relieved be fore long. Cedarville. The entertainment given in Bate man’s Hall, by the Cedarville Public School, on Friday and Saturday even ings, was in every way a success and well appreciated by the community. The hall was well tilled on Friday evening, and on Saturday evening room could not be obtained. Tickets for reserved seats were all sold long before the hour of commencement. The recitations, music and dialogues were well received by the audience anil deserving of more than passing notice. Saturday evening’s entertainment was followed by the exercises of the Class of ’84. The essays, “Earth’s Battlefields.” by Miss Ida Burt; "Spring Time of Life,” by Miss Lizzie Mounts; “Mary Queen of'Scotts," by Miss Alice Ogden; “The Study of Ancient His tory,” by Miss Louie Whitaker; “Meth ods' of Improving the Memory,” by Miss Emma Ogden; and “The Necessity of Being Able to Say No,” by Miss; Eva Sheppard, were carefully prepared and rend in a manner that was a credit to the entire class. Then followed awarding of diplomas by Prof. Garri son, after which the Principal, Mr. Cook, was presented with a beautiful silver cake basket, marked “Class '84, in behalf of the class.” The Superin tendent was also the recipient of a beautiful bouquet, presented by Lizzie Jess, from the Primary Department, in a manner that greatly pleased the audience.
