We have heard to-day that in the city
of New York alone thirty-one hundred
warrants were issued by the sup-rvisors
of elections. I see from published st de

number of deputy marshals in that city
and in ot her cities, borne twelve hun

Louis, and for what purpose ? Every

that city hail heretofore given small
deinocra'lc majorities this law was put
in operation and the vote of the demo

the purpose of aiding the republican

to the wrongs that have been practiced

The Attorney-General asks us to

by the Attorney-General, or in his offi_

Wilmington, Match 3, 1870 .—To
James IP. Ware, Esq—Dear Sir : _If 1
j know the feeling of the people at our
p'ace, that while they
e willing for the
Council to fund the floating debt of the
city, they do want incorporated in the act
something to stop this thing of running
up a floating debt every few years. The
present law is too hard to enforce and it
has become a blank. There ought to be
something added to the present law,
making it a misdemeanor punishable by
imprisonment, or both, with a
forfeiture of his seat, for any member to
vote to create a debt, but what has been
made a provision for by taxes or rents of
the year then current. 1 hope jou will
give this a fair consideration, for the peo
ple are looking to you to protect .hem
against the future misconduct of tlie
City Council. This is not a party meas
ure, hut one for the benefit of the tax
payers, and I have been told that the
Council has had enacted in this law to
borrow money, a clause to prevent the
citizens from nuking any alterations in
said charter without their consent. I
cannot think they wer« such dunces
this, but if so, bave it stricken out,
waste of words.
One word
house. 1 shall now speak for myself,and
I think that a great many agree with
me that we are not in want of these new
county buildings at this time. We of the
city will have $200,000 to shoulder to
b gin with, and the county i
$100,000, and one-half of this we will
have to pay in the city. This new pro
ject will add $210,000 more to the county,
and the liait of this will fall to our lot
to take care of. I sincerely hope you
will act wisely on these important mat
ters that are going to take such a large
outlay of money. There is no one who
wants these new county buildings at
Wilmington but the lawyers and a few
more interested persons. The masses of
tlie people care nothing about it in a
measure. 1 have no doubt that there are
a great many signers to petitions to build
the Court-house at Wilmington, but it is
ly to prevent it from being built at
New Castle ; aud if the people over there
and the Levy Court had said nothing
about it the citizens of Wilmington would
never have said a word on the subject
this session of the Legislature. This is
not what we want. It is that the county
should be divided, aud we know this
can't be done now, and don't let us put
any obstacle in the way of the division.
If that was done we would have bet'er
and fuller representation than we have
now. These are my views on these im
portant subjects. Yours truly,

portance. They have been kept ofF this
far, in order that the sentiments of both
sides might be clearly expressed ; but
time cannot be extended much longer.
This has caused a grand concentration of
ellbrt by the supporters and enemies of
the various hills, which commenced to
day in all its appalling and heart-rending
vigor, and from now till the close of the
session, it will of course he continued.—
With so much lobbying, an occasional
breeze in the House and Senate, and the
prospect, of the grand Legislative Dali
on Thursday* night week, things get
rally present an appearance which a
friend of stir and excitement, would
characterize as supremely lovely.
Speaking of the lobby, the measures
that are agitating that feature of the
State law-mill most fiercely, are, the
railroad bill, the Delaware College bill
aud the new Court House measure. The
first of these—the most lifeless of the
lot, I am afraid, as it now stands, but
the most talked about for all that—is
still being held back and nothing new i9
definitely proposed. The friend« of the
bill, while anxious for some means of
relief, are really doubtful as to whether
their act has not assumed more than it is
really able to assume. While the truth
of very unjust treatment cannot be gain
said, they are undecided. Mr. Rust, the
chair man of the committee on railroad
matters, by which the bill is being con
sidered, told me last night that he ex
pected the subject would come up this

providing for tlie removal of the seat of

City Treasurer Vincent showed his
portly figure and good natured counte
nance about the corridors, yesterday,
simultaneous with the reading of the
Wilmington bills In the Senate for the
first time. He was on hand to oppose
that particular one which gives Council
the power to impose on the Treasurer
whatever duties they may see fit aud lo
compel fulfillment by penalty. The
Treasurer objects to this most emphati
cally, and says there is no justice in the
proposed measure. He would however
submit to it were it amended so as to
give him necessary assistance.
