The Delaware Gazette, established in 1784, is the largest aud most nourishing week ly in the State, and bos a larger circulation, than any other on tbe Peninsula. Published «very Thursday afternoon, at $2 per year, in advance. _ WILXINilTON. D tl , M A Y 0,1*75, Bowen's testimony yesterday flatly contradicted Beecher's evidence in seve ral particulars, and denied that the $7,000 payment had anything to do with Tilton's discharge. Mr. HALSTEAD of the Cincinnati Com mercial, thinks Senator Bayard will bo the Democratic candidate for President, and Secretary Bristow the Republican candidate. Public opinion certainly seems to be drifting toward the Delaware Senator very rapidly, and with a unanimity and kindliness that is witnessed with great pleasure by the friends of Mr. Bayard. If the vote of the South should concen trate upon him aa the most proper man for the position, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania would in all probabil ity follow this lead, and his nomination and election become certain. Delaware makes no claim to the candidate for an office that should not be sought; but she does hold that she presents a gentle man in every way qualified. And in do ing so fully believes he has the ability and requisite characteristics to bring the nation up to the standard it had acquir ed before the terrible events which have recently so afflicted it with mourning and discontent. Judge Kelley, whose opinions con cerning the condition of the South now being quoted, seems to have seen little of it, and to have visited none of the sections where disorders and sec tional bitterness are alleged mostly to exist. He was moat of the time in Flo rida, where there were thousands of Northern visitors, and the tone of so ciety was as quiet and placid as in West Philadelphia."— Commercial. There are some presses that look the truth right in the face, and the Commer cial, seeing there is no hope for the Re publican party unless the Northern peo ple are stimulated to vote it longer in power by such stories as were heralded forth from Williams' "outrage mill" it vainly essays to contradict, or dispute what Judge Kelley says he witnessed by his personal presence with his "eyes and ears open." will be seen from the quotation above, would make its readers believe that the Judge was only in Florida. Now, neighbor must be fully aware of the fact that it is not giving the truth sub stantially, and on the contrary is with holding what Judge Kelley said and supplying his remarks with the tions of a reckless partisan who it to us would see the Hense the Commercial, as OR 1 supposi seems hole Southern country in utter ruin rather than wit ness a defeat of the Kadicul party. And this notwithstanding the defeut of that Party is plainly necessary to the ry of the country from tlie terrible state of business inertness and stagnation in to which it has be.en cast by Radical luiagovernment and extravagance, and consequent onerous taxation. Now, Judge Kelley distinctly says that he went with his "eyes aud ears open,' and in order to aseertai of the cose for himself he inti be did not make hi reeove t he true state alert that object known. And in this plying, soekiug way he wont first to Richmond, Va., thence to Charleston, Columbia, Savannah, At linta, Jacksonville, Augusta aud Aiken. How many more cities and States Judge KeUey visited wc do not know. But bis interviewer mentions those wo have named in a single sentence as we have quoted them. Yet tho Commercial would mxke ite readers believe the Judge only visited Florida. Why does the Commer cial not publish Judge K,.,icy's remarks? Does it fear the effect of them iu Dela ware, where the Judge is well knowu, and where he was known as one of the moat unrelentling and persecuting Radi cals? Even he has began to feel the steel of Radicalism. Although be voted for tho Force Bill ho did it with reluc tance and had to meet the scorn of Mor ton Butler. (Jrant & Co., aud uo doubt leels ali the penitential sorrow he ex presses for tho injury he helped to do unoffending and persecuted people df or l.i lirush Them Off.

True as preaching, and could our breth ren of the Herald have an opportunity of learning the condition of the Democra tic party in Philadelphia, ho would find here enothor class of "deadly enemies '' Un ni any ocra lions we have alluded to them. They are t hose who, professing to be Democrats, arc leagued hand and glove with the leaders of tho Republican par ty, and who use tho Democratic party as a cat s paw, with which they rake the roasted chestnuts from tho firo for thei. own and the use of their venal allies. We need not individualize them. They are welbknown, and their dark ways well understood. If the Democratic party hopes or desirea to rise to the supremacy once more» that hope or desire will be re alized only when theso barnacles have been scraped away. They have impeded the progress of the party for years past and to-day are its greatest hindrance! I hey should be cast off without a mo ment s consideration. They aro entitled to no mercy. They cling to tho party simply that they may use it for tlie bene fit of the corrupt clique of which they are members. They will descend to any depth to accomplish their purposes, By them the public purse and the Democrat " Party ar® regarded aa legitimate game. «.I. ^ ^re made to suffer, whenever, thereby, their mercenary interests be subserved. 1C A Conflict of Opinion • .Two more United Stales Judges have pronounced upon the Civil Rights act. Judge brooks, of tbe United States Court at Wilmington, N. C., iu charging the grand Jury, that the act of its criminal aspect, which was only shape in which it could come before the jury, was unconslutional and void. On the other hand J ndge Moreiles, of the United States District Court for Eastern Texas, in charging his Grand Jury.expiessed the opinion that, under the act, all persons have a legal right to board and lodge at inns, transporta tion in public conveyences, and en trance into theatres, but that, under it no one acquired any social right. l!y this the Judge seemed to mean that hotel propriters, conductors on rail ways trains, and managers of theatres, while compeled togiveaecommadalion to all applicants, might bestow .their customers according to their own idea of the internal fitnessof things. The views taken by these two Judges are rather conflicting and they are from being in harmony with other judicial and legal opinions that have pronoun ced with regard to the Civil Rights act, so that just at present juncture it is ditlicult to understand exactly what the act does mean ami how lar it is Worth anything to the colored people who claim that they are unjustly de prived of many of their rights. The importance of having the constitution ally of the law passed upon by the Su preme Court at an early day must he apparent to every one, and yet the pros pect of getting a speedy decission from that tribunal in event of a case being made up for it to act upon is not very promising. The Supreme Court lias ust adjourn«! without rendering any decision on the Louisiana and Ken tucky Enforcement act case, ami it will be some months now before the Court can express ils opinion, even if it desires to act with promptness. Iu the mean time two laws remain upon the statute books which everybody knows were passed with the single idea of enabling certain political adventure to whole capital for themselves, and theeonstituauality of which the gravest doubts exist. We are happy in the belief, however, that the day for this kind of political legislation is pretty well over, and that the peculiar theor ies of government which were the out' growths exigencies of war time will be succeeded by others more iu accor dance with the true principles of publican ism, and bitter adapted for the accomplishment of permanently beneficial results .—Evening Telegraph. e GENERA L NE ITS.

Old army officers say this is untrue, and this is sustained by General Pope, who denounces the contractors as dis' honest, and says it is idle to expect the Indians to reminn peaceably upon res ervations with a prospect of starvation in doing so, and that so long ns this maladministration of affairs with In dians exists tlio military authorities cannot and will not be held accountable for outbreaks which may occur.
