A heavy oak table, which his father
owns, has been badly used up by him,

Here is something more about the
proposed fusion of the Democrats and

shape of a special from Pittsburg to the
The sentiment in favor of a fusion
between the Democrats and Bullerites
in this State has been gaining strength
very rapidly during the past few 'days,
and now bids fair to become an assured
fact. The labor party, especially in
Alleghany County, look with favor
upon the movement, and leading- labor
representatives, like Thos. A. Arm
strong, are its warm supporters. On
Saturday W. U. Hensel, Chairman of
the Democratic State Commiitee, visited
this city and held a conference with the
county chairmen of all the Western
counties of the State. This conference
lasted several hours and the subject of
fusion was carefully considered. It is
now known that the prevailing senti
ment at the conference was strongly in
favor of the proposed movement. It
is stated that a conference of the lead
ers of both parties will soon be held, at
which the details of the fusion will be
agreed upon as follows: "The Demo
crats will withdraw eight names from
their electoral ticket, seven electors and
one elector at large, and Butler men
will be substituted. This fusion when
effected will receive a hearty support
and place Pennsylvania m tne list oi
doubtful States. 4

. The Wilmington Light4 Infantry are
very anxious for the Cornet Concert
Club to accompany them to Raleigh and
it is now thought that they will be suc

of the members of the club may be so
arranged that they may turn out with a
full complement of instruments, as their

would prove an attractive feature of

Last night, at 11 o'clock, there was a
smart sprinkling of rain from a clear
sky. It was one of the strangest things
we ever witnessed. Overhead there
was not a cloud and the stars were

ever seen them. To the North and to
the West there were a few light clouds
but they were well removed from the
zenith. There was no wind, the at

without wind, there was a shower of

Capt. S. W. Noble3 and his assistants
were busily employed this morning in
packing for shipment to the State Ex
position, jars of fruit of various des
criptions among which, we noticed,
were plums, apples, pears, peaches and
grapes. These had been preserved in
alcohol several days ago, the action cf
which had turned the fruits of an uni
form almost black color, which made
them look anything but pretty. Sul
phuric acid had been substituted within
the last few days, which bad restored
them to nearly their original freshness
and beauty and they presented a fine
appearance. They will be shipped to
day. . .
At about half past 3 o'clock this
morning, Mr. J. G. Voss, who lives in
Blount's alley, between Market and
Princess-street9, was aroused by the
screams of his daughter from an ad
joining room, who said that there was
a man trying to get into the house Mr.
Yoss ran hastily out, but the burglar
had fled. The daughter caid that she
was awoke by some noise and the first
that her -sight rested upon was the
figure of a man in the window, when
she immediately gave tbe alarm. She
had retired, leaving the window up, but

The cultivation of peppermint in the
United States is not carried on to any
great extent except in Western New
York and in Michigan. It is an enter
prise in. which there is more money
than many imagine. When dried ready
for' market it is worth $3 a pound. An
acre will yield from eight to filteen
pounds, according to the fertility of the
soil. It thrives best on low,; swampy
soils, and requires very little' cultiva
tion. Almost any of the low, swamp
lands of the Ea3torn portion ' of this
State would produce it in abundance.
We hope some of our farmers will
give the enterprise a trial next.year.
