DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS Meet This Evcnin (Monday, October 6,) At Martin's School Room, Near the Town Hall—at 6 1-2 o'cl'k. 03°Bg Punctual.^ o* to? Montreal, Sept. 3. On Sunday the 20th of July last, as Miss Sophro nia Williams was returning home from church in the afternoon, in the township of Eaton, a Bear was discovered following her, of which she was not aware until alarmed by the cries of Mr. Ansell Mitchell, Mr. A. Williams, Mr. Ilagley and others. Miss Williams ran and succeeded in getting to her father's house without any injury, except being very much frightened. The above mentioned per sons pursued the Bear with one gun and one axe, and having come up with him. fired at him, and by the blood which followed their shot, imagined they had inflicted a mortal wound, but the Bear making off, they continued their pursuit, their gun had lost its lock, and was therefore useless.—Mr. Mitchell seized the sxe out of another person's hand, and being swifter than the rest, pursued him alone. He was advised not to attack (being a he bear) until the rest came up, but Mr. M. not fearing any danger, was soon out of their sight, and coming up with hitn, in the act of going over the log, struck him on the rump with the head of the axe The Bear, not receiving any particular injury, threw himself over the log, Mr. M. followed and struck him again on the head with the axe-head, which brought him down, but when Mr. M. was about to repeat the blow, he rose up, seized him near the left shoulder with one paw, seized his hand with his month, began biting and tearing his arm, and throw ing himself on his back attempted to pull Mr. M. down upon him, who seeing his object, jumped with all his force past the Bear's head, and as he prepared for another gripe, twitched his arm out of his mouth, which tore off part of his flesh ; he then jumped over the log, in the act of doing which the Bear made a blow at hirn with his paw, which only tore his trowsers. The Bear then retreated, and Mr. M. waited the arrival of the rest of the party, when they concluded to pursue him no further till next morning, as it was then nearly dark. The next morning a party went in search of, and succeeded in killing him, after having put 7 shots into his body, fie measured nearly six feet in length, and full nine inches across his head from ear to ear. We are happy to state that Mr. Mitch ell is in a fair way to recover. Juan Rufa, said, " there are two classes of persons who are inconsolable : the rich on the point of death and women on the departure of their beauty. "—He said, on another occations, " that he who defined a compliment to be an agreeable falsehood, which serves as a net to cath dupes, was not far short of the truth, since the greater part of compliments are expressions directly at variance with the inter nal conviction." DIET)—At Lewes, on Sunday evening the 28th ultimo, Mrs. HANNAH WHITE, consort of Dr. John White, and daughter of Daniel Rodney, Esq. after a short illness. WIGMORE & HAWLEY, B REWERS from Philadelphia, respectfully give notice of their having engaged the Brewery at Wilmington, recently occupied by James Sebborn, where they have this day commenced brewing and where they purpose keeping a stock of HEER, ALE & PORTER, to which the attention of the public Is solicited. Sept. 30, 1823. __ 79—9t. Who wants Money? Delaware and Pennsylvania ELECTION. rpUESDAY next will be a busy day in Philadelphia, as a L great Election will take place there as well as here— not for Honor but Trofil, as the candidates will divide more than in suitable sums to purchase stock and farms, viz. 8000 HOLLARS, S4000, 82336, 82000« 81000, SH)00, 2000 in prizes of 500 DOLLARS. 2000 in prizes of 200 3600 in prizes of 100 0000 in prizes of 50 Sic. And 822,000 in other prizes. This will be the greatest Lottery ever drawn in Penny!- j vania ill so short a time, as it will be all over in live min utes, and the prizes paid on demand. The citizens of Delaware have now indeed a great chance, as the subscribers, for their accommodation have obtained with difficulty a few -whole tickets and Shares, which they will distribute at the same low rate as in Philadelphia. Let us therefore while electing an independent Governor to benefit the state, choose a ticket for outselves that will make us truly independent. We may be fortunate in both Elections, as men live hap-hazard through life, unconscious of the good that awaits them. Whole Tickets, g8—Half Tickets, 84-Quarters 82. try- The poll for prizes, will close on Tuesday evening At 7 o'clock, until which time genuine Tickets may be had hope & co. Market Street, Wilmington. of WILMINGTON, DEL. MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER c, 1823 . REPUBLICANS Of CHRISTIANA Hundred! To-Morrow Is the day on which it is in your 'power to es tablish the reign of Democratic principles in Remember! that if you fail, your brethren, throughout the State, will have just reason to reproach you with betraying a cause in which they are straining every nerve. Remember! the (lays of 'Ü8, and the persecu tions of which they were the witnesses. Look at the conduct of Federalism wherever power is in its hands. The same intolerant spirit süll exists—the same proscribing and vindictive monster rears its head to glut its vengeance with new victims. We could have been content in these days of peace and domestic tranquillity, when the prin ciples of Democracy are established through out the Union, and the correctness of its policy is universally acknowledged, to have forgotten past times, and to cultivate harmony with our neighbors. But how were these good feelings recipro cated ? Look at the federal press ! Teeming with the most malignant and rancorous abuse of the best men in the State ! Diving into the sacred relations of private life, and violating the best feelings of our nature by a system of slander ous insinuations and low and prolligate cal umny, unprecedented in this State, and only w 7 orthy of the worst days of party rancor ! ! Remember Caleb Rodney's administration when every Democrat was swept from office, and the meanest shuttling and trafficking re sorted to, to cheat a Democratic Governor of his constitutional power of appointment to office. Federal intolerance is a lire that burns for ever. a j to , Go to the Foils—llcpublicans of Christiana Hundred ! Put down, by your votes, this nev er-dying spirit of persecution. GO TO THE POLLS and let your voice proclaim that David Slaxxard SHALL BE GOVERNOR OF DELAWARE.
