While a party of men were fishing off the banks, seven miles out from Sea Isle City, Monday afternoon, they observed the masts of a vessel sticking up out of the water. They rowed over to inspect the wreck, and sudden ly Harry Williams cried out: “My God! boys, that is father's schooner.” “How dc you know?” asked one of the men. “By the cross tree that we fixed with the block, to reeve the halyards through,” answered Williams, “before she started on her last voyage. God help them, they are all lost!” and the young man fell fainting in the boat. The party rowed around the spot for some time and found the yawl belong ing to the vessel bottom up. They then rowed back to shore, and after Williams had recovered somewhat from the terrible shock he managed to give some account of the lost vessel. The Schooner Deborah Diverty was owned in Dennisville, a place about fifteen miles from Sea Isle City, and was commanded by Captain Frank about 800 tons burden, and carried soft coal between Philadelphia and Eastern ports. On her last trip Cap tain Williams had with him his wife, Ruth, two sons, John and Frank, a steward and his wife, and two deck hands, whose names are unknown. The vessel is thought to have left Boston about four weeks ago, and since then nothing has been heard of her. About three weeks ago the life-sav ing service discovered that a vessel had been wrecked off Sen Isle, but its name was unknown until Harry Wil liams accidentally discovered that it was his father’s craft. All on board are believed to have been lost. The father and mother of Captain Williams keep a hotel in Dennisville, where they are highly respected. His aged moth er is totally blind although her other senses are remarkably acute, and her grief and despair upon learning of the death of her son were terrible. Harry Williams had been closely as sociated with his father in working on the schooner and occasionly repairing portions of it, and for that reason, as one of his companions said, “could recognize any portion of it as easily as he could a chair in his house.” Since the discovery the young man has been unflagging in his exertions to gain some clue to the disaster. S. E. McGear & Bro. will do just as they advertise to do on Bargain days, Monday and Tuesday, July 21st and 33d. COUNTY ITEMS. Port Elizabeth. Frank Lee is having a new fence juilt, and other improvements made iround his residence. He appears to se getting ready for the Fall cam paign. Geo.

One night last week Gideon Biggs, of Bricksboro, came near losing his horse. He heard a noise, and going out to the barn he found that the ani mal had caught his hind shoe in his chain halter. On attempting to clear his foot the poor beast had cut a deep gash with the shoe under his jaw. Mr. Biggs sent for help, and by the aid of a cold chisel, the horse was cut loose. The gash in the jaw was sewed up, and the animal is now doing well. There is a discussion here about whether the school-house shall be painted green or white. The question is not yet settled, but will be in the course of a few days. Things look improved about the parsonage. Rev. C. W. Livezly has had the trunks of two old trees re moved. Wilson Bauks, of Manumuskin, ex pects to move to the Port next month, where he will reside hereafter. Jona. Ayars and wife, of Roadstown, spent the Sabbath with Capt. Shaw. Fairton. Mr. F. R. Willis, our enterprising butcher, has moved into his new es tablishment. The building is situate in East Fairton. near the Cumberland and Maurice River Railroad, and is one hundred feet long, by thirty-two feet wide. The first floor is divided into seven parts, consisting of a slaughtering house, engine room, lard and sausage apartment, boiler room for the manufacture of fertilizer, car riage house, main office and prisTate office. These are also set apart, one from the other, by partitions. There is a railroad running through nearly the entire building. When a beef or hog is killed it can be taken to all parts of the building, without once being lifted by hand. The meat wag ons are backed in their several apart ments, and at the back of each there is a small door in the partition, and a row of heavy blocks and benches which runs along them. Each ped dler has his own block and bench, so that in the morning when he is cutting up his meat, all he has to do is to ship it into the wagon, without scarcely taking a step. Connected with this department there are innumerable hooks on which to hang hams, meat, etc. Besides all these conveniences, Mr. Willis has had a very large refrig erator built in the building in which he can preserve a vast amount of meat in the Summer season. In the cellar he has a smoke-house. In the upper story there is to be bath and sleep ing rooms, and water tanks. There are admiriable facilities for carrying off the water, and refuse from the es tablishment, it being conveyed some distance away from the building through iron pipes. By this method the building is kept clean and pure. The pumping apparatus is a new in vention, and is perfect in its workings, furnishing pure water through pipes to every apartment, and also to the barn. The barn is so arranged as to hold ten horses and a large number of cattle. It is forty-eight by fifty-five feet, and will hold a vast amount of hay. There will be a switch to con nect the Cumberland and Maurice River Railroad with his stock yard, by which cattle and hogs will be unload ed direct from the cars to the yard. During the coming Fall and Winter Mr. Willis will enter the meat and pork packing business more largely than ever. He will put on more wag ons, for retailing, and also increase his wholesale trade. The new establish ment and the increased business will give employment to a large number of men. This is an important item to Fairton, and the proprietor deserves the thanks of the community for his energy and enterprise. A few more men like F. R. Willis, and this place would soon boom into large propor tions. Schooner “Abbie S.” arrived recent ly with another load of coal for Joseph Smith, and then sailed to Baltimore for a load of oyster shells for Capt. Ephraim Mulford, of Cedarville. This will be the third load of shells which the “Abbie S.” 1ms carried to Maurice River Cove for planting purposes. Millville.

Kendall, the jeweler, has just returned from Chicago, where he has been in attendance at the Democratic Convention. The Orion Base Ball Club, of Phila delphia, crossed bats with the Millville Club, one day last week. The home club won by a score of three to one. The Republican states that “there was great anxiety among the Demo crats to hear from Chicago," and then adds the following: “A great many of our citizens are sufferers from inflam matory rheumatism." John, this is rough on the Democracy! A correspondent of one of our town papers says that “the dog nuisance should be abated."

Dr. John Ingram, one of Vineland’s best citizens, has removed to Savan nah, Ohio. Dr. Ingram has been a resident of Landis township, for sev eral years past, and was an active and leading citizen. His removal is a pub lic loss. Two Sxake Stories.—Mrs. J. A. I Lewis, of Columbia, Connecticut, heard j a great outcry among a flock of rob | ins which were wheeling about the top of a tall fir near her house. The birds uttered piercing screams as they dashed wildly in and out among the branches. Mrs. Lewis approached the tree, and saw a black snake, five feet long, coiled about a branch near the top. on which there was a robin’s nest. The snake was swallowing a nearly full grown bird. Farm hands were summoned, who climbed the tree, knocked the snake down and killed it. As soon as help arrived the robins perched on the trees and watched the result with an appearance of anxiety. Black snakes frequently climb small trees and bushes, but no one there about ever heard of one making its way to the top of a forty-foot tree be fore. Grapevine is uie name ot a Greene County, New York, hamlet, and from there eouies the story of ail exciting adventure with a snake. Tiie Clinton family is one of the best known in that part of the county. One day re cently, Miss Laura Clinton, while out walking on one of the country roads, saw a large snake coming toward her. Fear gave her ileetness of foot, but she ! ran none too fast, as the reptile fol lowed her to within a few feet of her home, where, after a lively tussle, it was killed by a man named George Hunt. By actual measurement the length of the snake was 5 feet SB inches. It died hard. A girl on horseback, with her feet on the unusual side of the beast, is de scribed by a correspondent of the Omaha UcvuM. Her saddle was in re versal of established usage, because she is an inveterate horsewoman, and she is convinced that, by spending hours every day in a cramped position, with her feet always thrown distort edly to the same side, she was getting so she felt “lopsided,” and it took the rest of a day after a long ride for the sensation to wear off that she was “wound up and set, like a toy locoino to run round and round in a cirole.” In character, in manners, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.
