SURPRISE PARTY. The grandest party held this season in Boseville wan that held at the resi- dence of Mr. John Horaa on Tuesday evening, about fifty of the young folka of this vicinity participating. Bam, the genial knight of the raior from the establishment of George 0. Glassing, was master of* ceremonies.

Brophy, John Horan and the only Samuel. The affair throughout was of the dryest order, although the boat more than surprised himself in treating his guests to a wholesome supper of espeaiully prepared corned beef aud cabbage, to whioh full justioe was done by those present. As the first streaks of dawn became visible on Wednesday moruiog the party wended their way homeward, siugiug that sweet refrain, tbe \Two Little Gills in Blue,\ and \Biug Dem Bells Sammy.\ HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.

A GROWING NUISANCE. Rockland Gounty ia oomplelely overrun with peddlers. One day it ia a redheaded Hebrew with a lot of \aheap cloding,\ hat*, gloves and auspendera; the next day it ia a big pot bellied dutohman with a mammoth load of tin paila, pane, pota and other kitchen utenaila; the tbiid day comes a noble Italy man with a box of jewelry, pine, oeddlea,combs,etc.; the next day bringa a dirty Hungarian with a oolleo'ion of brushes, pip°s, ohairbottoma and the like; the tail end of the procession ia composed of a racr peddler, a aoiawrs grinder, a diabolical book agent, a tew- ing machiug agent and a tramp the nobleat Roman of tbem all. Tbeae peddlers are toes to legitimate business. Formerly a merchant in a small village derived a uice iocome from theaale of tbeae amall articles or Yankee notiona beceuse there ws* a larger percentage on them than on flour and sugar, etc Now hi' trade in tbeae gooda ia cut off by these wretches who carry their warea right to the farmers' door. These ped- dlera live by beggiug aa they go ftom bonae to houre. They nay no t«x<>a or lioenae and make more clear profit from the aale of #6 worth of goods, tliau the regular merchant doos of twice this amount. Each towuahip ahould com- pel these akunka to pay lioenae or elae offer a bountv on their scalp. l , It ia ceitain that the great horde of low lived immigrants coming io tbeae shores must come in direct oompetion with the American workwoman aame aa tbe peddlera with the country storekeeper. Better than a dozen tariff billa would be an aot of Congress abutting tbe gatea of America against tbe acnm, the paupera and the jail-birds of Europe. Restrict immigration. Keep the raaoala out. DECLARED INSANE. A hungtiriau woman named Julia Co- siski, wife of a laborer on tbe coal dook at Piormont, baa beeu confined in New Gity jail for tbe past two weeka under ordeis of the superintendent of tbe poor. Tbe woman has lately become affected with a mauia for praying aud while permitted to do so remained harmless, but, us ahe has spent uearly all of her tim<> reoently in religious edi flcei, her bnsbaud aud frieuoa remou atrated with her, at whioh interference she has beoam very violent. A short time ago abe suffered a aevere attaok ol tbe grip, aud aa the womau ia in a delicate oouditiou she baa late became Imbued witb some queer bajucinations, hence her commitment to jail. Dr. E B. Laird, ot thia village, at tho iustance of county superintendent of the poor, made an examination of tbe meutal condition of tue woman several days ago and declared her insane. Tbe worst part of tbe uufortuate woman's condition, is that abe should te removed to some proper plaoe aud without delay. The oouuty ofiluiala are liel pleas iu the matter, as the laws ot 1892 provide thut when a peraon ahall have been delared of unsound mind, the superin- tendent shall notify the mauugera of tbe State Insane Asylum, who accordiug to law, should send proper person* to convey the persou to the institution. This has not be<*n done in tbis case, altuougb more tnan sufficient time has elapsed for the managers of the institu- tion have attended to their buaiuesa. POLITICAL SQUIBS Ex-Assembly man Demurest is to re- aide at tbe 8 ate Cipitol for the winter. The geuial Cbarl<*a B D Freest will be among those most missed from the Assembly this winter. Senator Lexow gets on six committees as follows: Fiuanoe, Judiciary, Internal Aff«irs of Towns and Couuties, Liter- ature, Claims, and Joint Library Ex Port Wardeo and Bamapo'a Re- publican bow, Inaiio W. E isall, oapturea an assistant clerkship iu the Senate for two yeaia at 91,500 per year. Good tor Ike. When the Legislature organland on Tuesday there were only forty-thie \u25a0 ap plication* for positions on file from Booklaud County Republicans. Forty - two are still on file. Assemblyman Cutler manages to gel a place on three committees, two of whioh are unimportant. His appoint- ments are: General Laws, Commerce and Navigation, and Insurance. Ablet, the Bepublioan candidate for the Assembly iu the City of Cohoes, was defeated by nearly 2,000 plurality at the last election, proposea to contest for the aeat of his successful oppouent on general grounds. Senator Lexow introduces his first bill in which be wauts tbe Police Board aud the Boards of Elections in New York City made non-partisan, but for- gets to say anything about the Bepubli can city of Buohester. Tbe N«w York pr«ss applauds a mem- ber of Cougr«>Bs who said: ''I am for my dwtriot first the city next, the State third aud the Uuit« d States fourth \ When Southern men said that iu 18G0 they wure called tridtors and for tryiug to act upnu it in 1861 to 1865 Ihey were maritoriouHly shut into small pieces ?Brooklyn Eagle. Sixteeu Beptiblicaud want to put aa many Democrats out of the Assembly seats to whioh they were elected last fall. These six'eeu geutlem»n probably have Speaker Bond aud his Congress iu miud.

An Enthusiastic Meeting if not a Jollification held by the Brick Makers in the Corporation Room* on TlnirttUty. Former Visions of Hiohek Pbices now a Reality. The Brick Manuf ictnrers Association of tbi« vicinity held a very enthusiastic meeting iu tbe corporation rooms ou Tburdav afternoon. The meeting might well be termed a j.illiflcan'on, as the most encouraging reports wer,< re- ceived from all rotirces. Owing to the abscence Of President Boott, who wait ttuable to atteud, string to a severe cold. Vioe President Terrauce M i|<uire, pre- sided. Aftar considerHbln routine baiiiness bad been dinposod off the com- mittee appointed to confer with manufacturer* in other sections made a report and produced several letters from manufacturers in other localities which were read by Secretary Slmukey. From the tone of tbe oommuuioatious it is very evident that those in other locali- ties have beeu eating some very bitter fruit, nnd ere heartily in acoord with tbe Haverstraw manufacturers' views and have only been waiting for some one to lake tbe initiative, when they would cheerfully fall in line. Mr. E. E. Lang, of New Wiudsor, sent a communication statiug that tbe manufacturers bad se- cured the Board of Trade rooms iu the city of Newbuigh for the purpose of holding a meeting of the manufacturers of that vicinity, wbicb meeting was to be held yesterday afternoon, and re- questiug the presence of the committee so that tbe Newburgb people would be in a posittou to work in harmony with those from this vicinity. The letters received by the Organi- zttion from matiuf..otnrerH iu Little ferry, Kingston, Rockton, Fishkill, Oruton, Verplunok, Feeknkiil and other places show tuat tlio tff.rts of t e manufacturers of this ? eigUborlicod to control their own buMuesN me being highly api>r<<eia:eti by ibe ui>.a ifaotur er« of otuer localities. While there are a l>rge number of loaded barges in market remaining unsold, tbe fact that the brick dealers who bad large quau- tities of briuk stored upon docks aud iu tuuir yards are being rapidly ezuausted, and the reports of tue builtiiug depart- ments of the oities of New York aud Brooklyn, show that an uuusually large number of buildings whiob have been contracted for, aud wuich are to be ereoted tbe oomiug season, is the very best indication of the healthy condition of tbe market. About thirty- five of tbe principal manufacturers attended the meetiug, the unanimous sentiment of wbioh was that brauohesof tbe organißHion should fan perfeoted iu every looality wh re bricamakiug is cariiul on, not only for 9 tbe eoutiolUng of the price of their pro duct, but for the puipoae of oorreotiug abuses wbioh are said to ? xist in the business, tbe most notable of wbtou are alter seliiug tbrir buck lor cash, wbioh i? presumed to be thirty days, in many cases after tbe thirty days have expired the manufacturers are compelled to wait forty-live aud axty days longer lor tbeir uiou-y. It is alio intended to oorreot the ex- C 'saive amount of wharfage, demurrage aud watcbiug. Tuose are among the most notable of the abuses wbioh tbe organization propose correcting. It was alm> slated by several promuieut uiauu- fnotiirers that they Dave beeu approach* ed by briok dealers with a view to mak- ing coutraots for large quantites of 9 biiok. This is eertsiuiy the very best. I indication that the briok ccum'fsiou merchants who have long controlled the manufacturers' business now renin* thai tbe manufacturers are determined ' tp have absolute oontrol of their own business, and the action of the manu- j, laoturera in the Isst few weeks certainly meets with the approbation of all who are interested in tbe brickmaking bnsi- -9 u»BH, a* the present orgauixatiou start- ed but a few weeks ago under the most a disheartening circumstances, has al- - ready aohiered the most wonderful success. Briok have advanced from 94.60 per 11 to 96.00 per U, with every prospeot of doing eveu batter, as the supply now * in the yards of dealers is bring rapidly diminished the demand for those afl >at will become greater, while at present r those who are buyiug for immediate , use obeerlully pay the prices demanded Y by the manufacturers. It simply re- t maius for tbe manufacturers to stand t firm to their agreement, when, if the events of the past few weeks is to be a t criterion, the ulm st success is assured. Grassy Point. A grand hop was given by the young ladies of Grassy Point on Wedueeday evening at the residence of Mr*. Geo Wheeler. About 20 couple dauced to the atrains of music from Lynoli and Lewis' orchestra Mr. Rioliard Gurran, ol West Qavei straw, wan floor lauimg- , with Jobu Garcv as a««iaii<ut. All the young folks had a gruud time until the shot) wuistle annouuoed the appronoh of day, when they left for home well fled with (he eveoiug's pleasure. Rumor bu it that the Shin Fan Olub is on the verge of rtiin, as the members had ? meeting and in order to coutiuue, it was ueoeesary to isaue an appeal, which *ii aunwereil immediately by the members of the Alpha Club, who are ever ready to lend a helpiug hand to their older frieuds wheu they ure in need. i)wiug to the dull season oL SUPERVISORS' PROCEEDINGS.

The Times several weike ago culled atteutiou to the fact that the roal known aa the White Row in West Haveratraw, leading from the crossing of tbe New Jersey and NfW York Railroad above the Paper Mill Bridge to the West Haveratraw depot of tbe West Shorn roa i, waa iu felted witli tbe worst sam- ples of humanity that reside in thia vioinity. Wo also called attention to the fact that children aud girls were frequently (topped ana their wages de- manded in aome instances, while a uumber of young ladies had been in- aulted at different time*. For a few weeks back we beard no complaints about the matter, and had thought that the marandera had left for aome other more profitable work, but from the actions of a couple of men on Wed- neaday evening it ia very evident that protection should be afforded those who aro compelled to labor in the Print ?Vorka. and who wide iu tbie village. Whether tbe protection be furnished by thia or West Haveratraw villages ia a matter for the authorities to settle, while tbe road in question is certainly within the corporation of West Haver- atraw, its proximity to the corporation lines of this village, and the fact that tbe persons most interested are all residents of thia village, we think would be good reason for our polioe to take an occasional atroll iu that neighbor bood about the time that tbe employees pass on their way to their homea that aometbiug should, and must, be done is very evident, aa there is no more lonesome a atreet in either village than that portion that extends from tbe rail- road arousing to tbo residence of Mis. B>ll. Ou Wednesday evening, aa a young lady who resides with her wid- owed mother upon Uuion atreet, was on ber way home she waa accosted by two men who adilretaed some remarks to her shortly after ahe passed the Bell residence, to wbioh she made no reply, continuing ou her way, the men iu tbu meantime paaaing remarka in an en- deavor to open a eonveraation witb tbe girl. Failing in thia one of the men took the young lady's arm with tbe re quest that be accompany ber to her ome The girl, thoroughly frightened, commanded tbe loafer to let go, when bis partner immediately placed himself on the other aide of the youug lady, tukiug hold uf ber oloer arm. The lady iu question, who is a plucky youug Mian ol eighteen, had left the Print. Worka in company with a number of ??'tier young ladies, ha I been walking quite rapidly, aa she was anxious to get mime, aud waa some distunes in ad v iuo ' of her frienda at the time-she was fl:st aoco»ted, hut keeping her preset:on of miud she slackened her j-nce us the nieu continued their ndvancea, so thut at the time when the second t'ellosv toul< hei arm the other girla were olubh upon the trio. Aa the uurty were all waUing ? apidly the si gill »now which had fallen preventing the eonud of their footsteps being heard until the young lady's voice waa beard commanding tho miscreants to take their bauds off. Not knowing wnat Ihe matter was, one ot the youug ladies inquired what the matter was, when the pair let go their hold, making some un- intelligible remark, an.i as there waa a number of youug ladies iu the party, including a couple of good-sizad lads, tbe men weut to one side of the road, letting the party pjasou, aud apparent- ly endeavo.iog to screen themselves as much as possible from observation. However, there was no deaire to form any acquaintance on the part of the ladies, and it waa not uutil BiO'dway waa reached that tbe youug lady in- formed her friends of the oircumstauceu.

As the train duo at Haverstraw village at 5:67 p. m. bad left the Oongera station on Wednesday evening at 5:18 p. m. on it\ way to Qaverstrav and bad proceed- ed about one thousand leet toward the tunnel to a poiut where the switch whioli is used for storing freight oars near the station intersects the main track, the passengers were startled by the bumping of the ears aa if tlietrain bad struck an obstruction on the track. The engineer, in answer to signal, brought t'jß train to a standstill as soon as passible. \fbin the traiu crew and a Urge number of passengers who were aboard alight to a icertaiu what the Matter was, the brahman discovered a horse standing opposite the rear oar on the south bound track. The horse was attached to what was left of what pre- sumably had been a four-wheeled vehicle of some kind. The brakeman and con- ductor being mystified at how la horse aud wagon enme to be on the traot at such a distance from any crossi ig, and thinking perhaps some persona-had b-eu in the wagon, started back to in- vestigate. After proceeding a short dis- tauoe the top and ether parts of the wagon were found along the tracks from where the train was stopped to where the switoh intercede the main track. It was fonud that the rig be- fouled to a liveryman at Cong rs named Weyant, who had left tho horse on the opposite.side of the depot from the track while he was snlicitiug for passen- gers who alighted from the traiu, aud it is believed that the horse, which was a spiiited one, becoming frightened, bad ran away, ruuuing up the ewitob, aud had reached 'be mail. >raok at the time the tr«iu passed the switch, as the engineer said, when questioned, that there *ns nothing ou the track, and was smpri ed when h. received the ooDdnoijr'a danger signal to stop the train. This, however, is somewhat dubious as the shook was clearly ft.lt througli'iut the whole train, aud the completely di molmhed condition of the W-MOH vvhh suet: as to those who saw the wr- ok to believe that the engine must have struck tiie wagon, as a more cumpleie wreck our reporter (who was on the t.iain) ever Haw. The strangest part i f the accident was that While the d' bris of the wagon wan soattered along the ti'H.ok for at least five hundred feet ttie h rue did not receive a single scratch, i'lie I) anket which was iu the wagon when the lioise started was found on .lie Iro it bxl« «nd reaoh, which was all that, w.a-i ltift of the wngou attached to the b ifMe wlnui fmuiit. .Messrs DeWitt, Hous-,- Hurry Vanderhilt and others wlu wi-re on the iraiu wnen goiug ba4k found ilie lop of the wagon, wbich'had been a'two seated surrey, lying directly in the centre of the truck over which the truiu hud just passed.
