DESCRIPTION OF NATU' E'S
A Healthful Recreation that Pro
motes Elevating Thought.
The country about Wilmington
tains sotno of the finest scenery that
anyone might wish to see, and famil
iarity with the different driveways of
New Castle county will preaeut.innum
erable romantic scenes to the inquiring
person. A very pleasant route for
afternoon's recreation is to start about
2 o'clock for Smith's bridge by way of
that lead thereto. The most direct is
to drive out the Concord pike, crossing
the B. & P. Railroad just above tile
tollgate, turning to the left at the Bine
Ball, and continuing in that direction.
Another is to go up Jessup's road about
two miles, passing under the B. & P.
bridge and through the woods
clothed in tin ir beautiful Autumnal
dress. At the top of the steep hill that
must he climbed in this direction, the
entrance to one of the powder yards
will be found on the left, at which
point a turn is to lie made to the right.
A few minutes drive will bring the
direct road from the Blue Ball, on
which a turn should be made to the
Still another way to go to Rockland
is through Rising Sun, care being
taken when descending the steep hill
under the W. & N. Railroad ; passing
the row of willows that fringes tlie
road along tlie Brandy wine. Tlie creek
here is wide and free from rock, making
it delightful for boating. After leaving
tlie willows, a turn to tlie left comes at
the Barley Wood Mills, crossii g tlie W.
& N. Railroad, and continuing straight
tho direction of the Kennett pike.
when tlie little yellow school-house wi'll
be met. DuPont's station on tlie W.
A N. Road is then to he reached by
turning to tlie right, and another turn
in the same direction at tlie station will
take tlie driver direct to Rockland, live
miles from Wilmington.
Crossing tlie bridge at Rockland and
taking the road to tlie left for about two
miles and a half will bring Thompson's
bridge, and tlie next one, wich crosses
tlie Brandywine, is Smith's bridge.
Different varieties of handsome ferns
can be gathered while going through
the woods 011 tlie way. Part of this
road is cut out of tlie hillside, and is
quite close to tlie water. When con
templating this historic stream and tlie
rich beauty surrounding it, tlie behold
er can truly say :
How beautiful the
To me 'll»
If water sparkles there :
It hath a thousand tongues of mirth,
Of grandeur mid delight,
And overy heart Is gladder made
Having passed over Smith's bridge,
tlie road directly in front is to be kept
on the return, crossing the W. & N.
Road, and tlie old ('entre Meeting
House, with its ancient burial ground,
will soon be reached.
Hero the road
leads a little to tlie right, and not far
from the venerable Quaker resting
place will he found a cross-roads.
Tinning to the left, tlie Kennet pike
will be readied at tlie base of
,'hiclt tlie Lower
1 resbyteriun church and cemetery will
be seen un tlie right, live and a-lialf
miles irom Wilmington. Tlie W. & N.
Hoad is met every now and then,
crossed at Greenville, and again, just
below the toll gate, this time the tracks
passing underneath. At Pennsylvania
avenue anil Union street, the B. & P.
Road is crossed, and tlie fifteen-mile
drive is about ended.
A pleasant moonlight drive may be
enjoyed by taking tlie following route :
Out Front street to Union ; then to tlie
left, taking what is known as tlie New
Itoad, leading directly to Greenbank.
Tlie B. & P. and W. & N. roads, lying
side by side, are crossed soon after leav
ing the city, and the D. W. road and
Red Clay creek just before arriving at
After crossing the mill and driving
around Phillips's mill, a straight road is
kept, ascending quite a steep hill, and
MarshaUton ir, reached. Here the high
ground overlooks the valley, and the
moonbeams seem to make it almost
chanted g nund.

Beyond the bridge,traversing straight
ahead, a deep cut on the 13. & P. road
will be gone over coming back, and the
old Newport and Lancaster turnpike at
the little colored church will he met.
Passing through Newport, across the
Pm W. & 11. road and the Christiana,
the New Castle water works and reser
voir will be reached in turn. The Dela
ware railroad is to be crossed at Hare's
Corner, near the new Almshouse, and
after driving about two miles and a
half, the streets of Wilmington will be
met and the evening's drive will be an
event of the past.

tlie faculties of the young are so devel
