FIRST EDITION. Tlif Democratic AsMociatioa. A MILD BOUT OF MEETING AT WUICI1 NOT MUCH WAS DONE. Tho City Democratic Association met in Esquire Brady's office, on Sat urday evening, and w:w called to order a few minutes past eight o'clock. H O. Turner, Esq., of tiro commit tee to confer with Lite City Executive Committee relative to tbe alleged trou bles in tiie party, reported that dm As sociation committee did not organize until tiie night after the regular ineet ing of tiie Executive Committee, and that a letter had been received from the Secretary of the latter committee to the efiect that no special meeting could be held this week owing t.o the absence of tho chairman, hut that the Association committee would he cheer fully received at the next regular meet ing of the Executive Committee Tuesday evening. Mr. Turner moved that the report be accepted, and tiie committee contin ued. John O'Dounell thought that Mr. Turner's statement should not be con sidered as anything more t hau a report of progress. Tiie chairman agreed with this view and announced that tho conference committee reported progress. Tiie unfinished husiuess comprising the adoption of that portion of tiie minutes of July 17th, relating to Ihe reports received from the various wards was further postponed for one week on motion of John O'Donnell. Mr. Turner moved to adjourn. Some person inquired if liiere was not some unfinished business in the shape of a resolution ottered at last meeting, censuring the City Executive Committee for organizing in defiance lo tho wishes of the Association. The chairman said lie had on know ledge of any such business, and the Secretary said the resolution had been withdraw ». Win. II. Quinn then read the reso lutions adopted at tiie Eighth ward Democratic meeting on Friday night, iu opposition to tiie proposed change in 1 lie party rules requiring nomina tions to be made by convention instead of by ballot. Quinn moved they be adopted, but Mr. Turner and other» reminding him of the silliness of sucli a motion, he moved that the resolu tions bo approved as tiie sentiments ol tiie Association. The mo ion pi evaded witli only a few negative votes. A motion was made that when the Association adjourned it be uni il Wed nesday evening next, to hear the re port of the Conference Committee. Mr. Turner opposed this meeting, as it gave the committee no time aftei meeting with the Executive Commit tee to prepare a report . The motion was discussed pro and con for several minutes, when E. C Knight, moved that the adjournment be until Saturday night next. This motion prevailed aud the Association adjourned. The session occupied about an hour, and it is estimated that Wm. II. Quinn occupied full thirty minutes iu his frothy speeches. CITY COUNCIL MEETING. Council held an adjourned meeting Mtiunlay evening at Eighteenth and Market streets, with the intention of establishing the grade of Jes sup's Road, so that some curbing might be done at its intersection with Eighteenth street. In considering the «pjesiiou it was learned that. Jessup's Road is a county road, which madt tho right of Council to establish tlu* grade very doubtful. Thereupon the subject was referred to the Opening Streets Committee aud Council ad journed. BUILDING SHIPS ABROAD. The American Steamship Company the only line of transatlantic steam ships carrying the American Hag, is having two new ships built at Beliust, Ireland. It seems rather strange that a company that derives most of it» support simply because it is the onl} line of American steamships, should go to Europe to have them built count of the saving of a few dollars.— Chester Times. ac Peacli Shipments.

T1IB PUGILISTIC LETTER CARRIER SI'.SPESDED, WITH A STRONG PRO BABILITY OF REMOVAL. James L. Hawkins, whose little "unpleasantness" with Tom Savillc last Wednesday evening, created such a stir in the Republican camp, Im« been temporarily suspended from his position of letter-carrier of one of the postal districts of this city. The order of suspension was issued by Postmaster Pyle on Friday last, and is still in effect. What the result will be, Postmas ter Pyle is not yet ready to say. He has full authority to remove, as well as to suspend a letter-carrier, when ltu lias ample cause for such action. A removal, ltowever, is always re viewed by tho l'ostoflicc department at Washington, but the action is seldom reversed, and never unless it appears the cause assigned by the Postmaster is untrue or entirely in sufficient. It is therefore reasonably safe to predict that Hawkins will re ceive his walkitig-papers before many days. Tiie circumstances of the fight be tween HawkitiBand Saville, at the Republican City Executive Commit tee meeting, bn last Wednesday evening, are being investigated by Postmaster Pyle, who finds the ver sion of tiie allair given iu tho Ga zette to be just about correct.— Hawkins' removal would be bailed with delight by tiie Pickels-Higgins faction ot the Republican party who, knowing no more about politics than it yellow dog, have always been jeal ous of Hawkins, on account of his superior influence with the voters, particularly with the colored ele ment. The latter is already in a state of ferment, and Jim can make it hot for his Republican enemies when the fight gets lively. STATE ITEMS. NEWS NOTES FROM ALL PARTS OF DEL AWARE.

I'HXHIDKNT GRANT'S ACTION IN ItEKKlt KNOK To SOUTH CAROLINA CRITICISED. The letter written by Gen.

It will he found lo he one of the most interesting campaign documents that has been brought Lo light thus far in Hie present Presidential contest.

On being spoken to yesterday by lhe Herald reporter on the subject l.e gave a full ami explicit explanation of the whole matter. "I baldly remembered writing the letter," he said, "until I saw a reference lo it in some of the newspapers. When 1 wrote it I had no idea that it would ever be published. I was in a Western town on private business, with no secre tary or member of my stall' with me. 1 wrote it frankly aud witli no con straint." republicat letter having been claim sta' erneut s were "And stick by what you wrote?" "I ucver wrote anything 1 am afraid of having known and that 1 would not stick to. ' "And you desire this letter to be pub lished?" "1 oidy waited for the consent of General Sherman, and that having been given there is no obstacle against its publication." The following is the full text of the letter, which wo are enable to print through the courtesy of the editor of the World:— Cakondklet Post Office, St. Louis, Mo., Doc. 28, 187Ö. My Dear General —Your favor of the 4ih iust reach me In New Yoik on i he 5th, the day betöre I left for the West. 1 intended to reply to it befoie leaving, but cares inchleui to depat turc interfered.

M., »o that I may be expected in New York on the 31si inst. It has beenjcold and Uicary since m> art i val here. I have worked "like a Turk' (1 presume that, means hard work) in tin count y, in making fences, cutting dowt trees, repaiing buildings, Ac., Ac., an«, am al l</asL able to say that St. Louis h ihe coldest place iu the winter, as it is the hottest in summer, of any that 1 have encountered in a temperate zone. I havt known St. Louis in December to have genial weather throughout the mouth; this December has beeu frigid, and the river has been frozen more »olid thau J have ever known it. TUE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURAL AC TION. When 1 heard the rumor that I was ordered to the Pacific coast 1 thought il probably true, considering the past dis cussion on that subject.. The possibilité» seemed lo mo to point that way. Had ii been true I should, of course, have pre sented no complaint nor made résist ai.ce of any kind. 1 would have gout «juickly if not prepared to go promptly. I certainly would have been relieved from the responsibilities and anxielie.* concerning Presidential matters whicl may fall In those near the throne or in authority within ihe next four months, as well as from other incidents or matten* which I could not control aud the action concerning which 1 might not approve. 1 was not exactly prepared fo go to tin Pacific» however and I therefore felt re lleved when 1 received^ our note Inform Bing me that there was no truth iu the rumors. Then I did not wish to appear to be escaping from responsibililies and possi ble dangers which may cluster around military commanders in the East, espee tally iu tiie critical pe/iod fast approach ing. All's well that ends well. The «hole matter ol the Piesidency seems to me simple and to a imit of a peaceful solution. The machinery for such a contingency as threatens to present itself has been all caretully prepared. It only requires lubrication, owing to disuse. The army should have nothing to do with the selection or inauguration of President*. The people elect the President. The Congress declares iu a joint session who he is. We of the army bave only to obey his mandates, and are protec ed in so doing only so far as th« y may be lawful. Our commissions ex press that. I like Jefferson's way of inauguration; it suits our system, lie rode alone en horseback to the Capitol (I fear It was the "Old Capitol',), tied his hone to a rail fence, entered and was duly sworn, then iode to the Exe utive Mansion aud took possesion. lie inaugurated himself, simply by takine ihe oa h of office, There is no other legal inauguration in our system. The people or politic ians may institute paia dies in honor of tiie event, aud public officials may add to the pageant b) assembling troops and banners, but all thatouly comes properly after the in auguration, not before, and it is not a part of it. Our system does not provide that one President should inaugurate another. There might be danger in that, and it was studiously left out of *Wa! hcit l the charter. Hut you are placed m an exceptionally important position in conned ion with coining events. The Capital is in my jurisdiction also, but I am a suobrdinate, and not on the spot, and if I were, so also would be my superior in authority, for there is the station of tiie Commanden-n-Chief. WHO 18 TO DECIDE. On the piinciple that a regularly elec" te-1 President's term of office expires w ith the 3d of March (of which I have not the slightest doubt), and which the laws bearing outlie subject uniformly n cognize, and in consideration of the p ssibiliiy that the lawfully elected President may not appear until the 5th of March, a great deal of responsibility n ay necessarily fall upon you. You hold over! You will have power and prestige to support you. The Secretary of War, too, piobably bolds over; but if i f President appears he may not be able to exeicise func: ions in the name ol a President, for his proper acts are those or a known superior—a lawful President. You act on your owu re sponsibility and by virtue of a c minision, only/estricted by the law. The Secretary ol W ar is the mouthpice of a President. You are not. If neither candidate has constitutional majority of the Elec toral College, or the Senate and House on the oucasiou of the count do aol unite iu declaring some person legally elected by the people, there is a lawful machinery already provided to meet that contingency and decide the question peacefully. It has not been receutly used, ho occasion presenting Itself, but our forefathers provided it. It has been eAercised and lias been recognized and Submitted to as lawful on every hand. That machine!) would probably elect Mr. Tilden Pr aident aud Mr. Wheeler Vice Prebiueut. That would be light enough, for the law provides that in a fuiiuie to elect duly by the people the House shall immediately elect the Pres ident and the Senate the Vce President. Some tribunal must decide whether the people have duly elected a President. presume, of course, that it is the joint affirmative action of the Senate and House, or why are they present to wit ness the count if not to see that it it fair and jusi? If a failure to agree arises between the two bodies liiere can be no lawful affirmative decision lb»t the people Lave elected a President, and tiie Home must tli. n proceed to act, not He Senate. The Senate eh eta Vico President«, not presidents. Doubtless case of a fai ure by the House to elect a Pra.ident by the 4tli ol March, 1 he President of the Si nate (if there be one) would be the legitimate persons to exercise Presidential authori ty for the time being or until the ap puarance of a lawful President, or foi the time laid down in the Uouslitution. such courses would be peaceful, and, I have a hrm belief, lawful l have no doubt Coventor Hayes would make an excellent President. 1 have met him and know him. For a brief period be served under my com mand, but as the matter stands I can'; see any likiihond of his being duly de dared elected by the people unless the ►joand iiouoc come to be in Hcjorci is to that fact, and the House would, of •ourse, not otherwise elect him. What the people want is a peaceful détermina lou of this matter, as fair a détermina uou as possible ami a aw ul one. No iffie r ™untrv if no? Z t« I lie country, U not plunged into revo lutiou, would become poorer day In lay, busu.t s would languish aud out bonds would come home to find a de predated maiket. ill TROOPS OUT OF PLACE. 1 was not iu favor ol the military ac tton iu South Carolina recently, and il General Ruger had telegraphed to me or a»ked for advice, 1 would have advised him not under auy circumstances to al low himself or his troops to determine who were the lawful members of a State Legislature. I could not have given him better advice than to refer him to the special message of the President iu the case of Louisiana som.i time be fore. But iu South Carolina he had had th< question settled by a decision of the Su preme Court of the State—the highest tribunal which had acted ou the ques lion—so that his line of duty seemed even to be clearer thau the action iu the Louisiana case. If the federal court had interfered and overruled the decision ol the State court there might have been a doubt certainly, but the federal court only interferred to complicate—not to decide or overrule. Anyhow it is no business of the arm) to enter upon such questions, and even it might be so in any event, if the civil authority is supreme, as the consti tution declares it to be, the South Caro lina case was one in which the army had plain duty. Had Geneial Huger asked me for ad vice, and if 1 had given it, 1 should ot course have notified yi u of my action immediately, so that it could have been promptly overruled if it should have beeu deemed advisable by you or otbei superior in authority. G< nerul Rug* r did not a^k for my advice, and 1 inferred from that and other tacts that he did not desire it, or that, being in direct com munication with my military superior» the seat of government, who were nearer to him iu time and distance than wa8 —},e deemed it unnecessary. A» General Ruger had the ultimate respon sibility of action and bad really the greater danger to confront iu the final action iu the matter, 1 did not venture to embarrass him by suggestions. He was a department commander and the lawful head of the military administra tion within the limits of the department; but besides, I knew that he had been called to Washington for consultation before taking cominaud, and was proba bly aware of the views of the adminis tration as to civil affairs in bis command; knew that he cation with my superiors in authoiity in reference to the delicate subjects present ed for his consideration, or had ideas of his owu wiiich he believed to be suffi ciently iu accord with the views of our common superiors to enable liim to act intelligently according to his judgment and without suggestions from those not on the spot aud not as fully acquainted with thé facts as himself. He desired, too, to be free to act,as he had the event ual greater responsibility, and so the matter was governed as between him and myself. in direct communi 1LLBUAL AND UNWISE. ▲ < I have beeu uuwriting thus freely to yj u 1 still further unbosom myself by The pathetic story of Carrie Miller . .

Finally her hyster ics increased until they assumed the form of quite a violent fit, from the effects of which she was rolling on the floor.

About seven weeks ago a woman was arrested by the Reading police for drunken aud dissolute habits, and there ia reason to believe she was the same woman, who, as poor Carrie Miller, the victim of man's brutality, so shamefully deceived the good people of Wilmington.
