This had the cfl'cet to start the debaters on a fresh discussion.— Sonic of them contended that it would not be honorable lor tlie Com mittees to advertise for proposals after having received proposals from Gawthrop tic Bro. Other members contended that they were in favor of giving the con tract to parties in this city they were somewhat high parties elsewhere. They believed supporting home industries. Mr. Kyuehi amendment was lost, and Mr. Baird's motion was taken up, and the Committees of Nos. 2 and 3 were authorized to have steam heating apparatus placed in said schools. The motion to have them placed in Nos. 4 aud 7 was lost.

Church, last niuht, thu seventeenth anniversary of the Sunday School was observed by n pleasant, programme. Wm. H. Bil lany conducted tlie opening dovotional exercises, and interesting recitations were given by John White, Naomi Lowery, Minnie Lytle, Bertha Gill and Wm. Neal. Rev. E. Davis and his family sang several quartettes in an interesting maimer, aud a number of choruses were finely rendered by tlie school. Prof. Ford favored the audi ence with some select readings. The deceased scholars during the past year were Jennie Hall, Frank Grissom, James Evans and Willie Jones. Memorial serv'ces were held in their honor, comprising a solo by Mary Wiiite aud a memorial address Wm. White. Tlie report of the Secretary showed 29 officers aud teachcre ami 200 schol ars; average attendance, 175; there are 90 scholars in the infant department. The excursion to Bombay Hook made during the summer netted $137 G5. The report of tho Treasurer showed receipts, from collections aud tho ex cursion, amounting to $240 40; expen ditures, $119 50; balance in ths treas ury, $120 90. Addresses were delivered by Rev. Geo. H. Miller, pastor of Gracs M. E. Church, Rev. John White, Superin tendent of Epworth, and Job H. Jack sou. Tlie latter, who was superinten dent when tho Sunday School was or ganized, gave a brief history of its rise and progress. Tho comer stone of tho oliurch was laid on tho 21st of November, 1868, and the building was dedicated the following March. by Temperance AdUreetea. A temperance meeting undewtbe aus pices of tlie Women's Christian Temper ance Union was held last night, In tbe City Mission, on West Second street near Washington. Misa Annie Semple presid ed and first introduced Mrs. M. L. Welle, of Illinois wlio spoke of the favotable condition of the temperance sentaient iu that State. She said few of the churches use fermented liquor for communion and temperance schools where cold water principles are imparted to the rising gen eration are very successful. In Chicago she said it had been ascertained that 30.U0U boys and girls nightly partook of liquor, but tlie law in relation to selling liquor to minors was strictly enforced, and 500 saloons in Chicago were com pelled to close for want of support. Mis. Kirkpatrick, also of 1 lliuois,spoke of tlie efforts of women in that State to ubtaiu from tlie legislature a law allow ing women lo vote upon the question ;of liquor selling. 8he said they would return to tho Legislature year after year, until they were successful Mrs. Kirkpatrick also said that had she beeu a voter, in the recent rresidenlial canvass, she would have voted and done all iu hei power for Neal Dow, the prohibition candidate. DEATH OF JAS. A. PLUNKETT. James A. Plunkett, City Auditor's Clerk, died at his residence, No. 620 YV. Second street, At 2 30 o'clock yes terday afternoon, of hemorrhage of the lungs. Mr. Pluukett had been unwell lor some time, and the severe fall from the cars he sustained while from hi# receut visit to returning Frederick City and Hagerstown, Md., doubtless accelerated bis eud. Ilis iil uess, however, did not take an alarm ing character until Sunday morning, when bo was attaeked by two severe hemorrhages. Another followed yes terday morning, which so weakened him that death soon ensued. Mr. Pluuk#tt was about 42 years old, and was a son of Philip Plunkett, a well known resident of this city. At the time of his death bo was City Au ditor's Clerk, which position he bad held since May, lb79. Ho also served about nine mouths as clerk of tho Registry Bureau.

MATTERS POLITICAL. B. four The in of of an A raw PACTS OROWINO OUT OF TUB RECENT ELECTIONS. Wilmington Democrat, sre already taking a calm review of tho political situation, and cslculaiing the chances for the Mayorality contest ot 1881. Recognizing the fact that at the last election the paity nobly held its own in the upper portion of the city, and that it was money and Radical money that made such decided inroads in the Democ r atic vote south of Third street, they feel assured that ou a lull, untrammelled vote there 19 a square Democratic majority in Wilmington. The great desideratum is a stroug, pop ular, available candidate, and this tbs Democratic people will surely bave. .Some Wilmlnutou Democrats who were scared by the larilf cry iuto voting the Republican ticket, are now terribly scared at the "Rev atices of leading Republican papers. They begin to see, now, ho*.? .liny were duped. A aoup'.e of workmen at a prominent Republican mam facluring establishment also experienced a decid ed "change" the morning altar election, when on stopping to congratulate each other over the result of ilia election, they were rudely ordered by the fore man to "go on with your work, this ia no lime to is'lt politics." The great .ud absoibiug question of public interest just now is whether or not Bob Frailn will be a candidate for t e Republican Mayoralty nomination, next year. Francis Vincent will prob ably be iu the race. Fourth Ward Democrats pride them selves upon the fact that ttie Fourth was the "bauuoi" Ward for the Democracy at last Tuesday's electiou. The Legislature will assemble In reg ular session on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January. Messrs. Chat. B. Lore, Albert White ley and Geo. Russell, electors for this Slate will meet at Dover, on the first Weduesday of December, and cast the electoral vote of this State for Haucock and English. It is really astonishing how little en thusiasm Wilmington republicans ex hibit over their apparent victory of Tues day last. They ate terribly cut-up be cause they did not carry the whole State aud "beat Bayard." Already Republicans are calculating aud scheming iu regard to the Federal appointments, next spring. It seems to be e settled conviction that a strong fight will be made against tbe retention of tbe present incumbents. A "new deal," all round, ie demanded. tie. .like if H. for the to of lu reform" uttsr A PLUCKY OFFICER. POLICEMAN CriAMBBRS KNOCKED DOWN AND BEATEN BY A BURLY NEGRO. A colored man named Reed, called at tho police station last evening, and swore out a warrant against a negro named Eugene Cooper, charging him with assault and battery. The warrant for Cooper's arrest was rlaced in the bands of officer Charn iers, who accompanied by the assault ed man proceeded to hunt Cooper up. They first visited Hedgeville but fail ug to find him there the officer con cluded to visit Cooper's house which is situated in the rear of Taylor's mo rocco factory on Fourth street, between Madison aud Monroe. Here he was successful as the negro was at homo, and no doubt from his actions after wards was on the alert. As soon as tho officer demanded admittance the up stairs and hid under a negro bed. Officer Chambers ontered tlie bouse, aud accompanied by a colored carrying a lamp proceeded up stairs after the fugitive- Upon being told to come out from under tbe bed he decliticd, saying he had to die but once and hu might as well die thou and there. The officer then attempted to got the man from under the bod, when sud denly ho bolted out and aimed a blow at thé officer, who thereupon drew bis revolver. As he did so the negro kick ed it from his band and a tussle en sued. The colored man having the lamp suddenly loft the room, and the two men were in total darkness. Cooper finally succeeded in breaking loose from tho officer, and picking up a chair, dealt him a blow over the head, aud then ran down stairs. The officer pursued him, and upon reach ing the first floor another tussle en sued. They finally reached the yard, and tho officer hit tho negro twice over the head with a blackjack. The blows had no effect as the negro hit the offi stunning blow iu the face with his fist, felling him to the ground. He then kicked the officer in the stomach, and thinking that he was unconscious started across the lot. Chambers quickly regained his feet notwithstand ing his injuries, and pursued the flee ing fugitive and soon caught up with him, when another struggle ensued and both fell to the ground, the officer succeeding in getting on top. At this juncture Reed, tbe assaulted partj, Trho had gone for assistance re turned with two msn, and then Coopsr uuiftly submitted. He wm taken to the Hall by the officer, who bravely bore np under ins injuries until ko had his prison er safi Iv locked up. After getting to ths Hall officer Chambers' injuries became so painful that he was unable to walk and had to be Cunversd to his home in n carriage. Ccoper is a powerful huit m-iu, weighing at least two hundred pounds, ami the officer showed great pluck in sticking to him. He was de termined to arrest his man, and he say* nothing but death would have prevented him. The negro will l e given a hearing this «veuing. man eer a Personal. Mr. T. B.

Wliat object is there now in telling anything but the truth about Mr. R. B. Hayes, who goes back to Ohio in four months f No Republican poli tician has anything to szpsct of him. The most persistent gull that flutters in tlia wake of the party can hope tor nothing iurther from him m the way of civil service reform. His record iu office is mads up already. His day is over. From this time until March 4, 1881, he will attract a very small share of the public atteutiou ; and his de parture from the White House will be an event remarkable ouly because it purges the place of a tenant who has occupied it for four years without a ti in ha tie. Yet once in a while wo find in our Republican contera poraries paragraphs .like tlie following t "If the administration of President Hayes had not been clean and upright, if it had not managed the finances well, if it had not conducted our for eign affairs with ability, if it had not maintained tlie laws with vigor, the Republican party would have gone down at the polls before a storm of popular indignation. In reckoning the forces which won the battle, no state ment will he complete which does not plase in the forefront the wisdom and patriotism and ths integrity of the ad ministration of Rutherford R. Hayes. That is takou from ths Utica Her ald, a newspaper edited by Mr. Ellis H. Roberts. The Washington pondent of the Cincinnati Commer cial writes in the same strain : "Friends of the President say but for his clear and honest administra tion iu every branch of public affairs, which gave the Republican party re spectability once more, that party could not have succeeded, aud they claim, with much show of reason,that the party is more indebted to R. B. Hayes for its triumph than any one man." This sort of talk passes current sim ply because nobody takes the trouble to contradict it. The facts are acces sible. Under Mr. H?yes, corruption in the Post Office Department has reached a degree of audacity unknown since the days of Cresswell. For the greater part of his fraudulent term Mr. Hayes maintained at the head of the k Po#t Office an incompetent, an ex-rebel General, whose presence there was the direct result of the scandalous political bargain by which Hayes himself oarae into power. Key was the figurehead; Tyner wielded the political influeuce of the department; while Drady aud his crew had full swing in the finan cial management of affairs. They have not neglected their opportunities Jobbers outside the walls of the gener al Post Office have combined and con spired with dishonest officials insids, and the people have been plundered of millions of dollars. The star route system, and the loose ness ot the laws governing contracts for that service afforded the Ring all the chance they wanted. Under pretense of "exp» di'li g service" the cost of running eignty-six star routes was increased in eighteen mouths from $613,001) to $2,240, 504. Tbe Increase for expedition, mean while, ou all the other star routes in ibe United Stales, more than ten thousand lu number, did not amount to $50,000 — Favored contractors aud dishonest offi cials have profited under Hayes as they did not profil in tbe worst days of Grant ism. The star route scandal* have grown more flagrant each year under Haves, and the spoils to be divided larger. The report, submitted last mouth by Brady shown that for tbe year ending June 30, 1380, tbe expenditure on star routes was a million dollars In excess of that for the year previous, and a million and a half in excess of the estimates. Brady and his Ring have been investigated by Cougruss. The facts have all been brought out, and the evidence Is on reo ord. Tbe guilty ones escaped punish ment only through the treachery of Democrats iu the Senate and House of Representatives. Brady and the Ring have been exposed and denounced by the New York Times and other honest Republican newspapers. Mr. Hayes has uever raised a hand to prevent or stop the scandal. A. < A BOARDING HOUS1 THIEF. Yesterday a man carry mg a valise called at the residence of Mrs - Georgi-; ana Worth, No. 403} E. Second street, and asked for board. He stated to her that ho was employed at the Edgemoor Company's works. Mrs. Worth conducted him to one of the third story rooms occupied by an other boarder and assigned tbe room to him. He preteuded that he did not like the room, but upon being assured by the lady that in a tew days he could have a second story room concluded to stay.— He then told Mrs. Worth that as be would have to work all night, Le would laydown and take a nap. She thereupon left him and proceeded down stairs. A short time afterwards, while she and her daughter were sitting in thesecoud story front room, the new boarder opened the door and looked in. Supposing that he was merely Jookiug at the room, no attention was paid to the circumstance, and it passed uanolio ed. After a hasty glance into the room, the stranger passed down stair* and out of the front door, and has not beeu seen by Mrs. Worth since. A short time af ter he had left tbe house, the boarder who occupied the room returned from work, and npon going to the roem, found that hie trunk had been broken open aud $12 in money, a silver watch and a revolver stolen. The decamping thief left hi* valise, which upon being opened was found to contain a piece of cocoa matting, a quantity of motqnito netting, a dirty shirt aud a pairof pants. The man was rather t«U, dark hair and eyes, aud wore n stiff hat, a brown over coat and dark pant*. It would be well for other boarding housekeepers to keep a sharp lookout for him.

DEMOCRATS WHO SAY THAT GARFISH» ELECTORAL BALLOTS WIBI SENT from Tammany hall. The Chairman of the Irving Hall or ganizations in tlie twenty-four electiou districts of the First Ward met last even ing in the Washington Hotel, Bowling Green, to hear repotts at to the alleged political trading in the First Assembly District at the late election. As each district was called the representative arose and stated what he claimed I« know about the matter, of bis knowl edge. Tbe representatives ot six dis tricts averred that bags coming officially from Tammany Hall contained ballots for lbs Garfield electors bunched with ballots for Grace, and they charged that 1'tiumauy Hall bad »old oat Uaucuch in order to elect Grace. Ex-Asaemblyman Fitzgerald said : "In ths Twentieth District on election day I handed a voter a ticket from a Tammany bag. He looked at it, aud turning to uie exclaimed indignantly, 'Wliat sort of a Democrat arc you, ran ging sut such tickets as tbis ?' Look ing at it, 1 found, to my astonishment, that tlie Republican electors' names bad been substituted for those of the Demo cratic electors, and bunched with the Orace tickets. In five parcels I found tlie same evidences of treachery in the bunching. Tammany Hall was slaugh tering Hancock to save Grace." Mr. Fitzgerald was supported in his assertions by a large number of the del egates present. In one district, th« rep resentative said, tb« treachery was dis covered early, but before proper tickets sotild be had 150 out sf the 350 voters ha I voted. Resolutions were adopted s«ttl ng forth that all charges that Mr. Muller, who was a candidate for Congress in the Fifth District, and Mr. Fitzgerald, the candidate for the Assembly, had acted treacherously were false, and condemn ing Tammany Hall for "traitorously aud treacherously" substituting Gar tield for Hancock tickets. Each representative then eignet! a pa per declaring that be had bonutly sup ported the Democratic candidates, and aaiong them Nicholas Muller. or A.
