When it was proposed at the democratic caucus last night to appoint a "nurse committee" to prepare a town ticket for the democracy, it was hooted down with howls of derision. The Waterbury-Murphy feud thickens daily. Waterbury has now sued Mrs. Murphy for trespass on his property on Marshall street, and the case was tried at South Norwalk to-day.

They are the crews of the British steamship California, the British ship Falls of Earn and the schooner Little Wonder. They bring news that their vessels were wrecked at sea. The mate of the last named vessel was lost. Thomas S. Morison has three colts by Quartermaster, and Munson Hoyt has one by the same sire, which are twice more valuable to-day than they were yesterday.

There were 24 churches from Fairfield county represented, and money pledged to support a young clergyman and his bride from Greens Farms, to engage in missionary work in far-offi India. That the great feature of the Hospital meeting at the Armory last evening was its unanimousness. I did not hear any women mentioned among the large and ponderous array of vice-presidents. It may be that it does not come within their legitimate sphere. That September seems unprecedented in its exceptional character. It is doubtful if "the oldest inhabitant" can recall anything like it for uniform sum-merishness. The month has been more like midsummer, and the soft air peculiar to the typical best days of this season has been a feature almost from beginning to end. The warm weather has given the finishing touch to the magnificent crops that have blessed us, and now nothing would suit us but a good spell of rain. That pronunciation bees are now the the proper caper. They have been having them at a number' of the summer schools this season, and they have made as much excitement as the old-fashioned spelling bee used to. They are conducted on substantially the same principle as the spelling bee, only the words are spelled out and the contestants must pronounce them. It is probably safe to say that there are more words mispronounced than mis-spelled by intelligent people, and the pronouncing bee ought to be popular this winter. Their success would undoubtedly be pronounced. There will be a special meeting of "The Social Branch" in the Chapel of the Congregational church to-morrow (Friday) at 2 p. m. This meeting is to take the place of the regular monthly meeting, which will be omitted next Wednesday to give the ladies an opportunity to attend a Missionary meeting to be held in the South Norwalk Congregational church on that day. It is said that some of the drivers on the Winnipauk branch of the horse railroad line are the most vain men in town. Yesterday afternoon, one of them, an ex-parson, halted his car on the middle switch while artist T. S. Halloran took a snap-shot picture of his handsome form, car, horse and all. The picture will be framed and voted for at the coming Danbury fair. Base Ball Games. Yesterday's games resulted as follows : National league—New York 5, Boston 16 ; New York 3, Boston 6 ; Philadelphia 3, Brooklyn 6 ; Chicago 5, Cleveland 12 ; Pittsburg 1, Cincinnati 2.

See advertisement boy wanted. American Institute Fair. The sixteenth annual fair of the American Institute was opened in the exhibition building, Sixty-third street and Third avenue, last night, under the most encouraging auspices. Fully 6,000 persons visited it between 6 and 10 o'clock. There are 400 exhibitors-equal to that of any former year—and many of them did not have their displays in place when the formal opening ceremony occurred at 8 o'clock. A monster meeting was held at the Armory last night in the interest of the proposed town hospital movement. Every seat in the gallery and on the floor was filled, and from two to three hundred people were forced to stand in the aisles and vacant spaces of the vast edifice. Dwyer's City of tNorwalk Band generously furnished a fine selection of tunes, which were admirably played and the services of all the members were tendered gratuitously. At a few minutes after eight. Chairman Light called the unexpectedly large meeting to order, read a note from Dr. Noble, explaining his absence, etc., and then called on the Secretary for the only tedious thing about the whole affair, which was the reading of some hundred, more or less, names, which had been carefully compiled as a compliment no doubt, from the directory, as Vice Pi esidents of the meeting. Mr. Light, after music! by the band; then took the floor and made a fifteen minutes address, urging the needs of the hospital and his belief that the people of Norwalk were willing to contribute to its erection and support. He expressed his p leasure in seeing, people from every section of our town present and thus showing their interest in the movement. It was a charity that should rise above all questions of section, church, or party, and he was sure it woulcf. He instanced the recorded statement that during the early years of the war, when the two armies were on either side of the Rappahannock, a rebel band set up playing one evening, the "Starry Flag," when instantly a band in the Union army followed with "Bonny Blue Flag," and alternately, "Star Spangled Banner,'' followed by the Union band with "Way Down in Dixie, " etc., and then the Union band in low and tender notes started "Home Sweet Home," asid the Confederates joining in the tune on the other shore, and at its end cheered vociferously, showing that this was a melody touching all hearts on both sides of the line. So of this effort to erect a town hospital. It had seemingly touched and warmed the hearts of all our citizens, uninfluenced by sectional, political or sectarian differences. He said in conclusion, that this meeting was preliminary to a grand bazar the ladies were preparing to open at the Armory, on Oct. 26th. The following programme was then carried out, to the end of the meeting : Rev. Father Slocum being called upon arose and said the Hospital project was one very near his heart. He hud probably seen as much of the great need of such an institution as any one present, and he was rejoiced to see so many proving their interest in the enterprise by their presence. He said that charity was the very foundation of all Christianity. The Saviour and the Apostle Paul had placed charity at the head of all christian virtues, and he was glad that on the platform of this noble, christian charity, citizens of all parties and creeds could cordially stand. He had no doubt of its success, and while he was somewhat in the dark as to the details and methods in the minds of its chief promotors,- he did not doubt that our citizens generally, and even the little children, would gladly and liberally contribute to this great and good cause. He told of a war meeting he attended at his home when a boy, in old ^Litchfield county, Sumter had been fired upon, and the whole loyal North was all on fire with indignation and patriotism. A great meeting was gathered of the excited people of his village, and one good old stpul got up and proposed they pass a series of resolutions that the audacious rebels might learn how indignant the people of that town were at such treasonable conduct. The good man had hardly taken his seat, when up jumped another man who shouted "it isn't resolutions and wind we want, it is men, to go down there and to help thrash the rebel rascals, and I move we start a roll for a company here and now, and put me down for the first man to go." It struck him, as a practical man, that we wanted money more than speeches, and although it was announced that no collection was to be taken up, he presumed no volunteer contribution would be refused and so he wanted to climax his remarks by the proffer of $100 from his own pocket. This liberal contribution as a wind-up of his brief and happy speech was enthusiastically received by the audience. Hon. E. J. Hill, was then called out and read, as is his custom, the follow-brief but forcible speech, which was several times applauded by the audience, especially at the point where he gave utterance to the sentiment of what Norwalk might be in the eyes of the country, were she one consolidated, united city. His remarks were as follows : Away out upon the arid plains of Arizona General Dyrenforth has been experimenting, during the past summer, upon the artificial production of rain by the successive explosions in mid-air of dynamite, giant powder and other milder compounds. If the reports are true the experiments have been a grand success and- oopious showers of rain have been called down upon the thirsty earth. The chairman of this meeting, in imitation of the General's plan, having fired his dynamite and giant powder through the instrumentality of the Rev. Father Slocum, now calls for his milder explosives, and in due course of time we may hope to see the dew of #aercy and sympathy, which hovers over this audience and pervades this meeting, precipitated in an abundant rain of love and charity upon this dry and thirsty town. I am glad to-night that all parts of Norwalk have met together and joined hearts and hands to carry on so good a work. Were no other result secured, this alone would justify the labor hitherto performed. This meeting gives to me a promise of better things to come, and, in all sincerity, I would say that if the purpose and the motive which governs and controls our action now could come to be the governing principle of our every-day relations, this grand old New England town would soon take its rightful place as one of the leading cities of this commonwealth. I am glad that the enterprise in which we have engaged in not a denominational one ; glad we have not met as Methodists or Catholics, Episcopalians, Presbyterians or Baptists ; glad that we know no North or South or East or West Norwalk, but that as brothers, with hearts full of good-will and brotherly love, we have come to plan and counsel for the beginning and construction of one of God's own inns, whose portal shall be as high as Heaven and as wide as humanity, and across whose front shall be inscribed : "Inasmuch as ye have done it to one of the least of these ye have done it unto me." Actuated by such a motive and working in such a spirit, there is no such thing as failure. Many centuries ago, a rich young man came into the presence of Him, who. had if he had done nothing else, would have made his name immortal, by giving to the world its highest type of human life, and kneeling at His feet, cried, "What good thing can I do to inherit eternal life?" "Keep the commandments" was the reply and then he quoted to him all of the law relating to the duty of man to his fellow men. ' 'All this have I kept from my youth up'' the young man answered. Then came the epitome of all religion. "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and soul and might and mind and strength and thy neighbor as thyself," and in exemplification of that love, he bade him sell all that he had, give it to the poor and follow Him. Friends, Christ does not ask of you and me to-day, that we should live the life that he lived or follow his instructions to his disciples of that day, literally, but he does ask that his life should be an example and his words an inspiration to us in facing and conquering the different conditions of life in which we find ourselves placed. We may not have to give our all to feed the poor, or forsake our homes and friends to follow him, but into this splendid life of ours, with all its enjoyments and all of its opportunities, there surely comes the golden rule of eighteen centuries ago, "As ye would that men should do to vou, do ye even so to them." A few weeks ago a poor Hungarian, an alien and a stranger, was struck by the cars in South Norwalk, and lay breathing out his life in the baggage room of the depot there. By chance (if such a thing there be) a man passed by and saw the awful sight. He stopped and looked about and wondered if in this whole town there was no place where, if death must come, it might at least be in the peace and quiet of a home. From that thought came this meeting. From that thought I trust will come, through the willing action of this whole people, a modest, humble but fitting beginning of what in the not distant future will be the Norwalk Hospital. To this end let each do something. One can work, another can give, all can at least wish it well. Several years ago, a woman 'came to the rear entrance of a house in Norwalk and asked for clothes. The servant girl seeing in her face the signs of honest poverty went to her room and was bringing down a good warm garment of her own, when the lady of the house stopped her with the remark. "You want that for yourself.'' "I know I do," was the reply "but if I didn't it would be no charity for me to give it away." Think of this reply, when this cause comes to you for help and act accordingly. It may be you are giving now to that which bye and bye will be a means of comfort and blessing to you and yours. In this swiftly changing life, no man is sure of his position. Thirty-seven years ago I came to Norwalk as a boy. Looking back over those years I can see where the rich have changed places with the poor, where those once honored and esteemed have been passed by and forgotten; and worse than all where death has come as a glad refuge from a ruined life. God grant to each one here to-night,the blessing of a home in which to live in happiness and die in peace. But who can tell the future ? One thing we know, that in a world so beautiful that its Creator gave himself to save both it and us, if we, his creatures, can,by thought, or word, or deed, help to make life sweeter and death less feared, we shall have joined hands with him in the grandest work that it is possible for man to do. Rev. Mr. Tucker, of East Norwalk, followed in a short and earnest plea for the enterprise. He fully believed that the liberal minded people of all Norwalk not only could, but would, carry the enterprise to completion,and he, as others did, knew there was almost daily need of a town hospital. Music by the band followed, when President Light called out Rev. Dr. Yan Alstyne, who said in part that: He did not know what was to be the cost or scope of the proposed Hospital, but he hoped it was not to be like a 'weak and sickly^Jchurch,. cramped by debt and want of means. He recognized its necessity and as it was too late to occupy much time in talk, he would say that he extended the right hand of fellowship to his good brother Slocum for his practical turn given to the enterprise and while he might not be able to go down so deep into his pocket, he would dive clear down to the shoulders of his ability, to give to such a worthy cause,- and would give Father Slocum a good, royal, old-fashioned Methodist grip, in recognition of his practically eloquent argument in behalf of the cause. The Rev. Dr. was very happy in his brief remarks, which were heartily appreciated by the audience. Dr. j. G. Gregory was then called out and responded by saying that the project was one in which every member of his profession took a deep and especial interest, for the reason that they knew its imperative need, and when the time came, they would be found ready, and more than willing, to contribute of their services and their money. Senator Seymour was next facetiously called out by President Light and responded by saying that he had just left a democratic caucus which had been somewhat wild and tumultuous in its enthusiasm, and the thing that had impressed him most on entering the Armory was the vast amount of deep, silent and suppressed enthusiasm manifested by the audience, especially that large part of it which had been forced to stand during the entire meeting. He then, in a more serious mood, stated that statistics proved that small hospitals were the most successful, and such an one as would fill Nor walk's present needs should not be a very costly affair. It was quite within the easy attainment of our people, if united for it. The town and the state he thought could be properly called on, and be depended upon to aid in its support, if properly organized and managed. Selectman Daskam followed Senator Seymour, his face rosy with the smiles of victory, as he had followed Senator Seymour from the caucus where he had been overwhelmingly re-nominated, but he felt his heart moved to match cards with Father Slocum and said he would give another $100, for a bed in such a hospital to be known as the little children's bed, and he did not doubt but that the money could easily be collected for a hospital. He would invite all the churches and sabbath schools to aid in, the good work, etc. Mr. Joseph Tammuny was the next and last speaker. He spoke for the laboring men and the labor organizations of the town, and especially for the Hat Trimmers' association, who had already in hand a large fund for this purpose and were ready to pledge $3,000 as their share in the greatly needed institution. "The shopmen and laboring men, of Norwalk, will do their full share for this object,'' said Tammany, and his statements were heartily applauded. ' President Light again announced the Bazar to open on Monday, Oct. 26, and the meeting adjourned, and all the friends o f the enterprise were greatly encouraged by the cordial and earnest spirit manifested. The Injunction Continued. Judge Curtis, of Stamford, who recently heard the motion for a dissolution of the injunction prayed out by Zalmon Comstock, of Norwalk, against Wm. H. Olmstead, also of tfcat place, in the Court of Common Pleas, has rendered a decision continuing the injunction. The defendant some time ago secured judgment against Zalmon Comstock and wife by default and then enjoined Mr. Olmstead from levying execution on this judgment, which was given by a justice. Justice Curtis continues the injunction on the condition that the plaintiffs furnish a bond, of double the amount of the first judgment, as security in case Olmstead again is given judgment against them.—Bridgeport Standard. Praise for Gen. Watson. Lieut. Wm. H. C. Bowen of the regular army says this concerning Camp Watson : "General Watson has acquitted himself to the satisfaction of the brigade throughout. He has deservedly won the esteem, respect and regard of every man in the brigade from 'high private' up. The officers to a man are loyal to him and it is no false praise to say that he is in command of the finest brigade encampment the Connecticut National Guard ever had." Bridgeport's Police Muddle. Judge Hall, of the Superior court, who is hearing the injunction case of Chief Rylands against Police Commissioners Grant and Rishor and Captain Pinkerman, finished his business in Tolland county yesterday and will continue the injunction hearing to-day.

Price One Cent. THE ROCKS. The Northam high on Black Rock.| Two] Hundred Passengers In Peril Says this morning's New York Adver-^ tiser:— The big sidewheel Sound steamer, C. H. Northam, which left® this city for New Haven yesterday| afternoon, was reported late last night to be high on Black Rock, in the, Sound, a short distance below College y Point. , The story was brought to this city by , a party of excursionists who returned late from a chowder excursion to College Point, and landed at East Thirty-seventh street pier. They reported passing the steamer about seven o'clock last night. She was brightly illuminated and her passengers could-' T be seen moving hastily about her decks. 'r It was dark at the time, but the excursionists' boat ran close enough to the stranded vessel to distinguish her name *•••' The C. H. Northam left her pier, foot of Peck Slip, at 3 o'clock yosterday afternoon. She carried about 200 pass- v engers, it is said, and a full cargo of mixed freight. The steamer was due to arrive at New Haven at 8 o'clock last night. When the excursion party passed the - '7 stranded steamer, a small boat is said* " ' to have been alongside with some sailors climbing into it. It is presumed they were going ashore for help. Nothing could be learned of the accident at the company's pier in this city, as the wharf was closed. Black Rock has long been complained of by Sound * mariners. No light marks it,and it is almost directly in the pathof passing vessels. " A heavy sea was running last night, , and a stiff breeze was blowing. - It is feared the steamer may be seri- ^ ously injured. IN CAUCUS. > PEMOCBATIC TOWN. V The Democratic Town Caucus was held last evening in the Town Hall. Sheriff Toner was chairman and J. Ti Hubbell secretary. Messers. W. M. Mitchell, Jas. Han- Ion, Jas. Story and Bernard Tully were appointed tellers.

Thiele, 9 W. L. James, 2 The ballot was then made a formal one and Samuel Daskam declared the nominee. After a parliamentary snarl James T. Hubbell was -nominated by acclamation for town clerk. A motion to farm out the nominations to a committee was snowed under by a. cyclone of "noes." Wm. E. Montgomery wasunanimous-ly nominated as Town Treasurer. James Mitchell was the only name mentioned for Assessor and he got there with both feet. After a little skirmishing Albert De- ... . forest was nominated as first constable, and John H. Gormley as second. F. W. Perry and Herman Thiele were nominated as Grand Jurors: John W. Main as School Visitor: J. J. Walsh and W. S. Hanford as Registrars.
