A villain or a lot of villains are living at Vinton and they are plying their work of firing buildings with rigid determination so that the citizens here are becoming alarmed :or the safety of their property.

The ves- els noon began to arrive, first singly and hen by twos and threes, until at the ower bay was again full of yachts. Near andy Hook dock the Puritan was riding t anchor, while farther in the bey the dark nes of the Gonesta became visible as the gze began to clear away. The was oc- aeionally ruffled by oatspaw intervale be- ween each puff growing less, and show- ng that tho wind was strengthening. At the wind veered aroundjto the ast of the yachts in the horse shoe pre- aring for action. There was at that mo. however, but slight breezes presented r prospects for a race.

Tho Farmers' Roviow of Chicago, prints ie following summary to-day on the corn rop, the outlook based on the latest ro- orts from correspondents. "The cold, damp weather, which pro- ailed the past week, retarded tho inatur- ng of the corn crop. In spite of it, how- ver, some progress has been made. Frosta ave been experienced in many localities, one of sufficient severity to do any in- nry to corn. At this writing, (Sept. 7.) e judge that three-quarters of the corn f tho entire country is past danger from rost. Of the remaining fourth, fully one- alf is so far advanced that a frost which ould cut the leaves without freez- ng the stalk, so HS to burst tho cells, ould do it no injury beyond injury to ie fodder. This leaves but one-eighth of ie crop in any danger, and every day ithont a freeze lessens the danger. At his writing tho danger of a freeze is no renter than it has been at any time since ie last ten days, and we have strong con dence of n foil maturity of the largest rop of corn ever grown in this country. this oity, Sept. 7th, at the eeidence of tho bride, by Rev.
