[Spécial correspondence of thu Gazette.]
Middletown, Oct. 7.—The ship " New
Constitution " arrived at 8 o'clock this
evening and anchored In frontof the Middle
town Hotel und Immediately In frontof the
Bayard Club's room. There was a good
attendance of negroes, as Saturday evening
is generally attended with a goodly number
of these animals.
I>. L. Dunning was made President of the
meeting, Q. E. Hunkill, A. G. Cox, E. N.
Moore and J. M. Rothwell Vice Presidents,
and Dr. R. B. McKee, Secretary. The
Diumond State band discoursed splendid
music as it does on every occasion. The
first speaker of the evening was lion.
George P. Fisher,who repeated his Wilming
ton speech.
The hand played a selection and Richard
Harrington
assisted
introduced. He
wus
up the ladder to the ship. Richard
spoke for about 20
!nutes. Groans issued
from the mouths of hoi. ist Democrats and
honest Republicans, who hated to
a base performer admitted Into the ship that
was now freighted with some of the tem
perance candidates for the Legislature and
other honorable gentlemen,
said that people only groaned

He spoke briefly of Demokratie
economy that was claimed for the Diamond

adjourned thut mcml>er8 were seen carrying
baskets containing paper, ink, pens and
other material bought with the people's
money.
lie also said the Démocratie party stole
{20,000 that had been laid aside for the In*
eilt of the public schools of the Bute,
expected to run the ship "New Constitu

land her in the port of Republicanism
November 8.
Fred. Eden Baeh, Esq., was then intro
duced to the audience, and addresi
meeting In such language as only
from a well educated gentleman. In one or
two cases he was personal, but as a rule lie
did not vilify the opposing party as did his
predecessor. He seemed to be deeply inter
ested in the education of the musses and
spoke In reference to reports that hud come
rom .Middletown wherein negroc« were
kicking up disturbances at short intervals.
He claimed that where a community w
ignorant there crime
was right.
Washington Hastings was then intro
duced. He spoke briefly, and what he said
was not of much account. Several times
during the evening a young man of perhaps
28 summers gave an open air concert off the
stem of the »hip, composed of singing alone.
It sounded as if he were in a box down in
the hold of the ship. You could only catch
a w ord now and then and that wus either
"Currcy" or "Hastings." The ship is a trim
little craft, built especially for the accom
modation of Richard and his gang going up
Salt River. At this writing, 11.80 o'clock,
the band is still playing and the negroes are
dancing ou the sidewalk. Officer'Craddock
made several arrests, but nothing of ini|>ort
ance has occurred to disturb the meeting.

ABOUT Tfltt NEW CONSTITUTION.
Considerable amusement has been created
in town by theattemptof the Repulilieaus to
create a wave of popular excitement through
the "New Constitution." The toat was
fully dcscrilted in Saturday's Gazette, and
on Saturday night was at Middletown,where
a Republican meeting wus held.
The Republican leaders have endeavored
to make it appear tliat the gift was made
by Job H. Jackson of the Juckson & Sharp
Company, who had built it brand new, at
bis own expense. Here are the facts iu con
ation with the remarkable craft :
It is a steam yacht joiutly owned by Lewis
Faust, William Hoopes, John Kershaw and
Mitchell, who have had her since June,
1881. She was uamed the Critic, uud has
lately been lylug around Jacksou & Sharp's
ship yard.
The boat was really hired by Chairman
Harrington through Mr. Jackson. It
only desired for 80 days, and lor the use of
for that time $50 was paid out
State Central Committee's funds.
State Central Comnflttee Is to be resjionsiblc
for all damages.
In the unbounded liberulity of his enthu
siastic heart, Mr. Jackson is understood to
huve really paid for the repainting of the
boat, but the old natuu still appeal's
through the coating of ucw paint.
"I don't believe the boat wlil ever be
gotten back to Wilmington whole," said a
gentleman Saturday. " The jar of the
rough road will tell upon it terribly, ami
even if it does come back it will never be
seaworthy agaiu."

Mr. Bates was the llrst speaker, and after
congratulating the audience upon the Dent
o.-ratlc victory achieved in White Clay
Creek hundred on Tuesday last, referred
not particularly to the Issues of the campaign,
said and said it was the duty of every man to do
what lie could to keep the State government
All from falling into the hade of the men who
are now endeavoring to obtain control of it.
He referred ur the State candidates of the
Democratic party, aud to the open manner
In which they were nominated by the repre
rsentutlvcs of the Democratic pet.pie, ind
contrasted them witlt the Republican tioini.
nees, who, although tneu of excellent char
aeter, had been selected at a conference
of leaders and forced upon the party by
ob- these managers, notwithstanding that u
. "mjDrity of the voters were opptsed to their
nomination. He next referred to the
did history of the Republican party, and said
all that Us hau drifted away from the purposes
ol Its organization until most of the trusted
leaders of 20 years ago are no longer found
lit its ranks, and it is led by men who, as
was said long ago, are simply held together
E. by the cohesive force of public plunder.
Referring to State Issues, Mr. Butes said
the Republican party ol Delaware was In
nowise dlttercnt from the Kepubliesu paru
of the country, being controlled undue
tuated by the »unie system of " Bossism,"
political assessments and the spoils of office.
He referred particularly to the fact that
while the Republicans have had two mect
lugs In Wilmington,
Irom that city had made add re
principal speakers being .Mr. Fisher and
Mr. Harrington at the first gathering, and
Mr. Harrington and Mr.
all at the last. Although the question
discussed was the wrongs of New Castle
county, Mr. Fisher of Dover was the man
called upon to udvocate the claims of this
county. He ridiculed the pretensions of the
Republican managers in the direction of
"retrenchment and reform," and said the
Democratic party had always been file party
of honesty and economy in Delaware, and
A that the State had never lost a dollar through
the delinquency of any of its Democratic oili
cials.
Mr. Bates dwelt at length upon the
tiou of increased representation for
Castle county and declared himself uu
equivocally iu favor of this measure of j
tiee for the upper eud of the State. In this
connection he referred to the new constitu
tion of 1858, which adjusted the inequality
of representation and effected a number of
other reforms, but which wus defeated
mainly through the instrumentality
of the opponents of the Democratic
party. He held thar. the Democratic
party was not rcsjMmsible for the present
condition of affairs, which were brought
about by the constitution of 1832, of which
John M. Clayton, the great Whig leader,
was the father. Mr. Bates dwelt purlieu
larly upon the graVe Importance of this
great question of settling the mutter of city
aud county representation, particularly in
a State where the city is likely to
contaiu fully oue-half of the entire popula- <
tiou. It is not a question, he thought, to In*
hastily settled, by a little toy boat
wheels, but one that demanded the most
serious ami thoughtful eonsideraliou of the
people.* He pledged himself, if elected, to
urge the rights of New Castle county in re
gard to proper representation, and felt sure
that the demand would be treuled in a
proper spirit by the representatives of the
two lower counties. He spoke urgently
iu lavor of representation by dis
tricts, as calculated to overt
the jealousies and feelings incident to
county delegations, and while upholding
the principle of representation on the basis
of jiopulution was not in favor of according
to cities such a representation as would
give them practically the control of the Leg
islature when their population becomes
greater than that of the rest of the State.
In conclusion, Mr. Bates urged every
Demoerut in White Clay Creek hundred to
answer the cull to duty ou the day of
election.
Hon. Thos. N. Williams wus next intro
duced, und spoke iu his usual stirring and
impassioned strain, drawing a ringing »■<» .,
parison between what he clussed true Dem
ocracy aud modern Republicanism. Re
ferring to the question of popular education
he declared that the cause of education
the cause of the people, aud that he w
strongly in favor of State appropriai ions for
white schools and lor colored schools, but
unalterably opj)osed to mixed schools in any
shape or form. .Mr. Williams charged thut
at the last session of the Legisla
ture some of the strongest opposition
to popular cducutloii came from some of
the Republicans comprising the New Castle
county delegation.
Mr. Willinm.-v' remarks elicited great ap
plause. When he concluded Charles
Theodore Russell, Jr., Esq., of Boston,
Mass., a brother-in-law of George II. Bates,
Esq., was introduced as a representive of
the Democracy of the old Buy State,
gracefully tendered the greetings of the
Massachusetts Democrats to their brethreu

be true to
(1 achieve a handsome
victory iu November. Mr. Russell was
effective in his oratory and eloquent in his
utterances, und the audience greeted him
as a "stranger within the gates" by tending
him a hearty Delaware welcome.
Dr. Switldn Chandler closed the speaking
with a brief leferenee to the Importance of
campaign, and urged the
audience to use every endeavor to achieve the
a victorv. He referred to the proceedings
of the Electoral Commission as proof .of the
Insincerity of Republican professions iu
favor of a frci^ ballot and a fair count,

Wabhinoton, Oct. 8.— The officer* of the
Secret âcrrice of the Treuury Department
last evening made an Important arreat In
till» city of two men who are charged with
attempting to Induce employee of the
Bureau ot Engraving and Priutlng to pur
loin certain plate, and valuable aheeta of
paper. The name» of olio irT"r
llain F. Salter and WtlmotHTw _
latter Is an ex-watchman or the buranu.
The eoiiepfraey war eapoeed by an employe
who had been approached and offered a more
remunerative position If the aheetr were
I landed over. When Colonel Irish, Chief of
the Bureau, learned of what bad occurred, ha
Immediately sent the information to Secre
tary Folger for suuh action as he might
see fit. The employes who had bean
pered with were summoned before the seere
rary, and the suiry they told was to the
effect that Suiter and Waid had frequently
inude overtures before stating their inten
tions. Subsequently, however, they said
that they wanted to get eerlaln sheets In
order to show how loosely the atfsirs of the
bureau were administered. Then the bribe
was ottered of a higher position, assurances
were given that if the work was accom
plished the purlolner of the sheets should be
made secure in the position under the
successor of Colonel Irish.
Ward, the ex-watchman, seemed certain
that the pa[h r could lie t»ken without de
tection and endeavored to improve hie views
upon the employes with sin
gotfatlng. No heed seems to have been
taken of the safeguards thrown around the
bureau to prevent such d. predations aa were
proposed, although it is a well known fact
tile absence, of a single sheet of bond
or oilier paper has frequently been the
cause of keeping all the employes after
Itours until the discrepancy was cleared up.
itill Ward insisted that all that was
sarv was
are Wtt
ani. TIm
he was ne
neces-
--•rve in this matter, but bis argu
ments failed to convince his intended tools.
The latter promptly detailed what was going
on to Colonel Irish and he was enabled to
put the Secret Service officers
of the conspirutoi8.
Another proposition was that certain
finished bond plates should be abstracted,
and Ward would see to it thut they were
placed in the hands of the Attorney
General. Ward's animus seemed to be
venge for having been dismissed by Colonel
Irish, and he frequently made use of the ex
pression that as he was well barked nothing
was too desperate for him to undertake. Tbe
failure of Ids iuteuded victim to co-operate
with hiui alone prevented the sucera of the
plot, and so certain were the conspirators
that their desires would be gratified that
they made no effort to
the track
•ape Iroit» the city.
Both prisoners were arrested while on Penn
sylvania avenue, and were locked up at
police headquarters for a hearing to-morrow
before United States Commissioner Brady.
The scheme seems to have been but one of
many to bring odium upon the preseut
officers of the Bureau of Engraving and
Printing.
