The statement made by a Delaware county paper that tbe monitor Roanoke was being torn to piecek at Roach's is a mistake. Notb- ing has been done to the vessel since she arrived at the ship yard. A fruiter sprang a leak out in the Delaware, yesterday afternoon, and a quantity of banannas, oranges, and other fruit was thrown overboard to lighten the vessel. She was towed into Pennell's ship yard.

When the men came home she introduced thfjpew boarder to-them, and when it was time to retire, she consigned Mm to a room with Joseph Owens, a young man that works at Wetberill A shops. After breakfast yesterday morning, the stranger made himself somewhat disagreeable by sitting around tbe house smoking, and trying to go through had hold of the prisoner.

The brakeman offered to fight tbe roughs, one at a time, but they declined to deal that way, and for a time it looked as though tbe rascals would take the tra from those in charge. Word was telegraphed to the office of the company in this city, and tbe train started for Chester.

Mr. T. W. Stone, the Chester agent, sent a message to the police headquarters, and officer Stewart proceeded to the Market street crossing with tbe intention of making an arrest when tbe traiii arrived there; bnt the scamps jumped off at Pean street, and escaped. When the engineer saw tbe roughs beginning to leave the cars, he whipped up," in hopes of preventing them from alighting, but was not successful.

The Cavellas in their German sketches Were superior to anything in their line that has visited this village. Miss Ida Siddons did a neat act with a skipping rope which was loudly applauded. Tbe after piece, not like the old threadbare farcer, was new and spicy, and all tbe char- actors were well sustained. The acting throughout was excellent, and should the Croupe ever return to this place they may be crowded house." This evening the Royal Marionettes will exhibit in Holly Tree Hall.

It has reduced tbe matter to just this Instead of a fear of imprisonment, instead of tbe exist ence of a salutary horror of that particular deprivation tif liberty which plight induce men to restrain their vicious impulses, tbe prison not only excites no terror, but appears a desirable if not a delightful place.

LEFT HIS following story of love, wedlock'and separation, was told to us by a friend who had lived close by and was cognizant of all tbe facts: For some time prior to September 1st, Charles Simmons, of Bethel township, paid his attentions to a young lady of the same place. His love was reciprocated and his suit was very warmly encouraged by friends, who argued that the young lady was the possessor of a thousand or two. This increased his devotions all the more and made him more anxious for a union of fortunes, as well as hearts. She consented to take him for better or for worse, and accordingly on the second of September they were legally united in the holy bonds of matrimony.

All things went well for about nine days, when Charles asked her to deposit her fortune in his hands, that be might use it to a good advantage. She informed her dear Charles, that her fortune consisted only in her ability to make a comfortable home and to share his care and trouble. This be did not particulary desire, and was very much perplexed when be found the two thousand he anticipated was not forthcoming, and he thereupon left his home, wife, amd all to him that was dear that day. Search was instituted, but failed to bring him to HIGH tide in tbe river and creek yesterday afternoon was unusually high, flooding tbe wharves and washing high upon the embankments.
