Thanksgiving! This would seem the least that we could do. Yet even so, it is more than some people do; for gratitude is by no means a virtue of universal practice. It implies something for which we have reason to be thankful, and, surely, we always have much reason, despite the sorrows and losses which befall us; some times, even, because of these wry afflictions. The recital of our national blessings includes this year the victorious career of our army and navy, and the return to t'leir homes of many who volunteered in their country's behalf. In our family and personal lives, we shall discover much ground for the pro foundest gratitude. The grateful acknowledgment of these mercies is but the simplest duty, and furnishes a safeguard against their perversion and with drawal. It serves, too, to protect us against that parental root of evil, namely, selfish ness. For no one can be conscious of such kindness without being alike aware of one's unworthiness, and desiring to share them with others. So today while wo join in the common thanksgiving to which we are bidden, let us seek to make others less favored than ourselves, partake of the same bless ings, and resolve to show our own gratitude practically by enlarging the happiness and comfort of those who may be within the range of onr benefactions. The real thoughtful observance of such a day as this is well calculated to pro mote the habit of thanksgiving and thus to strengthen us against a merely fitful and occasional remembrance of tin, one divine source of all our blessings. The nation no less than the individual, that serves God cheerfully and grate fully, is sure to lift the world to a higher plane of thought and will, preparing itself for even greater gifts from Him whW it thus owns and honors. In the midst of the world's metropolis, stands the Royal Exchange, in and out and by which are going and coming daily the men who are controlling and direct ing businesses of almost immeasurable magnitude. Nothing is more striking in its beautiful facade than the text which runs across its summit: The Earth is the Loan's, and the Fullness Thereof. To-day the whole American nation is in like manner reminded of the Divine origin and ownership of all the good things which its citizens enjoy. And in recog nition of this great truth, they are called upon by their chief rulers to render the thanks and praise which are so eminently due to God. It is an inspiring scene, this of a whole nation uniting in an act of homage to the Lord of lords; and there cannot but come a blessing to a people that thus re member and acknowledge Him. Of course, one does not need to be told that thanksgiving is a duty which ought to be daily performed, as day by day new mercies are vouchsafed us. Neither is it requisite to prove that men everywhere are very negligent as to this plain and com mon obligation. Therefore, it is well tliat they should, from time jto time, by some such special proclamations as are annually issued by President and Governor, be moved to the discharge of this obligation, and so be helped to a consciousness of their.uttcr de pendence upon some ono higtjer and greater than themselves. The Psalmist enjoins upton all creatures the performance of this duty: "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord." The whole anim ite creation is thus admonished. And, surely, there is no conscious being that is not aware of mani fold blessings received of God during the year, for which he ought gladlv and heartily to give thanks. But few things are more abominable and degrading thau unthankfnlnoss; leading on, as it does inevitably, to tyranny, covetousness, injustice and dislion The thankful life is that which tends to ennoble mankind and bestirs them e=ty. to generosity, sympathy, humantity, gentleness and integrity. Gratitude is reckoned by some as a lost virtue, by others it is described as a sense of favors to come. We shall hope for our readers that they sincerely render to our common Father their due meed of thanks, and that their lives of gentleness and goodness may attest the reality of their words of praise. Thanks-giving is good, but thanks-living is better. Let us attend to the one and not neglect the other. Leighton Coleman, Bishop of Delaware. A JUROR LOCKED IIP. Blamed on the Fact That Janitor Scott of the Court House Will Eat Crow. Day janitor Scott, the sleuth of the Couit House, has a special jury of twelve white rats, but one of ttie members of tiie jury in the Stewart-Norton case yes terday caused iiim more trouble than the whole twelve snow white jurors of his own. The juror's name was Mr. Francis and he went to ttie jury-room for some cause and when ho attempted to again join the remaining jurors found the door locked. He called upon janitor Scott to unlock the door and let him get in. Mr. Scott tried to do so but failed, lie tried every key except whiskey and turnkey, but the door still remained fast. After Mr. Scott had held a consul tation with several other Court House officials it was decided to permit tho juror to go through another room and enter the jury chamber by a different door. Mr. Scott later found the missing key. The clerks in the Clerk of the Peace, office intiiriate that Mr. Scott was rat tled because he had to eat crow as the result of an election bet witli John Camp bell, Court House fireman. It seemed that Mr. Scott made a wager with Mr. Campbell on the result of the recent election. Mr. Campbell was to eat crow cooked by Mr. Scott if the county went Democratic, and Mr. Scott was to do likewise should the county go Republican. It went Republican as Mr. Scott can inform you and to-day a crow will be nicely roasted by Fireman Campbell and eaten by Janitor Scott in the pres ence of his jury of white rats aud others. Claim Disallowed. A In the United States Court yesterday morning Medford H. Cahoon, represent ing Barlow Bros., of Trenton, N. J., made a motion to disallow the claim of United States Marshal Short of $3.98, ex penses incurred in connection with the removal of a piano from the steamer Lota, which was recently sold. The piano was transferred from the boat after it left Wilmington. The claim was disallowed, on the ground that the marshal was liable for expense incurred in such matters when they are out of tiis jurisdiction? Tho court allowed the amount of the regular court expenses, $14.65. : Read The Sun. LARCENY (JANE DISMISSED. | Mrs. Mary Auderson Refuses to Pro secute Two Boys For Stealing Her Purse.

Yesterday morning at 1.30 o'clock a negro named Carter was found in hiding in the cellar of the residence of Henry K. Dure. No. 900 West street. Mr. Dure was not at home, but the women of the house heard the intruder and soon aroused the neighbors. In a short time excitement reigned supreme. Dr. Pyle ran out of his house in his night robe and armed with a revolver. A crowd soon collected around the bouse. The police department was informed of the situation and Sergeant "Dan" Kel leher accompanied by Officer Solomon responded and were quickly on the scene. The two officers on being told that the noise had been heard in the cellar iu stiiuted a search and found a colored man crouched up in a closet. They brought him to the surface of the earth and lie was discovered to be a former employe around the house, and Mrs. Dure would not have him arrested. The neighbors demurred at this and wanted Mrs. Dure to prefer charges against the man, but this stie refused to do. The residents went to their beds grumbling over the affair. It was (ound on investigation that Carter had entered tire cellar by one of ■ the windows in which glasses in the sasii were broken. He nad reached his hand through the opening and unfastened the sash. In getting in, however, he knocked one of the iron grate bars to the floor which made a great racket and alarmed the in Fthe house. mares o Carter told the police that he went into the cellar to sleep. JThis is not given any credence from the fact that the man never slept in the house while employed by Mr. Dure.| V "S . - It is thought by many that, the negro's motive was robbery or maybe worse. He may have meant to murder some of the family out of revenge, for only a day or two ago he had a quarrel with Mr. Dure's son, which resulted in Carter loosing his position. The neighbors and police lean toward the latter theory and are loud in their condemnation of allowing Carter to go at large, for they allege the community is not safe while such a man is at liberty to enter people's houses at the dead hour of night, with impunity. j ! Larger Supply Pipes. On Tuesday a meeting of the Board of Water Commissioners was held. Com plaint was made by some of the firemen that difficulty had been experienced in obtaining water from some of the fire hydrants, and an investigation was or dered.

Asa number of churches are using water motors to produce power for the organs, it was decided to place meters in such churches, to be used on and after January 1st. Suits for Damages. James W. Ponder, representing Wil liam Girven and Miss Anna Alsentzer, has entered suits in the Superiour Court for each of them against Martin W. Shockley for $5,090 damages.

Pennington Given Ten Tears, One Honr in Pillory and Thirty Lashes. a a a A MOTHER'S TERRIBLE GRIEF Henry Bfackiston to be Tried for the Murder of Charles Green To mor row—Court Asks fbr an Early Return of Civil Suits. Cato F. Pennington, the colored fiend and brutal assailant of Miss Kate Bangie dorf, of Newark, was yesterday morning convicted of attempted criminal assault and the Court imposed a fine of $509, ten years imprisonment, one hour in the pil lory and thirty lashes. When sentence was passed on Penning ton he broke dowm and wept like a child, a woman cried out "Oil! my God!" and the mother's grief over her sou's down fall was so violent that the couit bailiff had to lead her from the court room. The facts in the case as told by Miss Bangledorf are that at the time site was attacked she had been sent to the store by Mrs. Kelley, with whom she lived. While returning to her home she no ticed Pennington standing near the Deer Park Hotel. She heard some one fol lowing her and turning around discov ered that Pennington was coming up the street behind her. The negro passed her and after walking a short distance up the street turned abdut and came toward her. He grabbed her and threw her to the ground with both hands around her throat. Removing one of his hands from the terrified girl's throat he placed it over her mouth to prevent her from screaming. In the frantic struggle to protect her honor the brute's hand slipped from her mouth and site gave a lusty scream which was answered by Mrs. Kelley's son who said: "I am coming Katie." Pennington jumped to his feet and (juicklv vanished. Miss Bangledorf fully identified the prisoner as tier assailant. Detective Witsel testified that he had arrested Pennington on a description fur nished him by Miss Bangledorf. Pierre Blair Pie represented the de fendant and made the best he could of the bad case. The jury was out ten minutes when they returned with a verdict of guilty. The time set by the Court to hear the case of Henrv Blackiston, charged with tne murder of (Jharles Green, colored, is tomorrow. The attorney for the defense endeav ored to secure a longer postponement of the case, but lie was unsuccessful in the attempt. The State asked for and ob tained a writ of certiorari, removing the case from the Court of General Sessions to the Court of Oyer and Terminer. The additional witnesses and jurors were dis charged until tomorrow. The civil suits that were passed at the opening session of the Superior Court were taken up yesterday afternoon and run over for the purpose of forming the Court calendar. Many of the eases were marked for trial, while others were again continued. The Court informed the attorneys that the case must be in such shape that the court calendar could be made out. bringing the case of Chang Jee vs. Robert 8. Stewart and John Norton be fore the court Walter II. Hayes, repae senting the defendants, took exception to the indictment charging the prisoners with highway robbery. Mr. Hayes con tended that the perpetration of the deed ,vas not high way robbery according to the statutes of the law, but robbery plain and simple. The Court sustained the indictment and the trial proceeded. The indictment charged the two men with entering the laundry of Chang Lee, on Fifth street between Poplar and Lom bard, on the night of Octor 28, and with drawn knife and threatening to tfommit murder if their demands were not com plied with, called for the Chinaman's cash.
