PARTY ORGANIZATION.
To the superficial observer, the present state
of the Democratic party in "Delaware would
appear ominous and savor of disorganization.
Not so, we view it. The various division», the
open and candid expression of totally different
sentiments prove to our mind the truth of what
we have for a long time regarded and admired : ;
and that is, that in point of independence, lilt
members of the Democratic party for rice/ the
members of the Whig party. We all have ear
dinal principles on which our jiolitical faith is
firmly and solidly based : but we vary in the |
exact construction when these principles are
about to he put in practical operation. In these
constructions wo differ, and the component
parts of our party possess the manly, the noble !
independence of spirit to think for themselves, |

The only toast he gave on the occasion was as

flag may there be but one cry—Independence or
Death." That is the way they do things in
Mexico. An American President would have
said In whatever land is unfurled our Star

and Plenty." The toast of this one-legged hero
of the "hasty plate of soup," is but a precursor
of a desperado's designs.

|
This is a question which is now engaging the
j attention of the Convention, and upon the dcci
sion of which probably depends tlie fate of the
Constitution itself. Many persons who wish
f- its ratification arc Aery desirous that it should
not be submitted to the people before November,
18.)4. lhc most prominent reason which they
assign is that the office holders are numerous,
! respectable and influential, and that they will
do their utmost against the Constitution if it.is
sllt , niit[(!t i be f on , lhe m , xt g CaC ral election. .

From Annapolis, we learn that the Maryland
House of Delegates have passed the Eastern

Col. Iti-rihde, from Mexico, has arrived in
Washington, having in his charge the Sloo
treaty.
Again, however numerous they may he, and
however influential as a class, they have never

thci e is not a blute in this L mon whose election
docs not prove that the office-holders cannot
control tne popular will. There is nothing,
i therefore, to fear from their opposition to the
i ratification, let it take place when it will. On
- tho eontrary. judging from the uniform result
everywhere, and on almost all occasions, and
from the motives b)' which they will bc actuated,
it is probable their open opposition would do
: P ro "' otc than to the ratifizier.,
In saving tins, wc arc arc not animated any
'more by feelings of hostility' to the present
offii'c-holdei-s in this State, than to those who
hclfl office «oder the general government, in
1840, 1844, 1848, or 1852, or in this State in
; lK4t>. Our only motive, in referring to these
things, is to show that the.friends of the new
; Constitution need not fear anything, even from
j the united and open opposition of the olfke
holding interest, and should not permit any
consideration of that kind to influence them to
pnt oft' the ratification to the fall of 1854.
55'e do not hesitate to exprès» the opinion
that the deferring the ratification until 1854,
instead of having it some time this summer or
fall, is calculated, if not designed, to defeat the
new Constitution altogether. It seems evident
that its uncompromising opponents—the Old
Fogy members of the Convention—so under
stand it; hence they vote all the time for the
fall of 1854. They know that, at that time,
both parties will have candidates in nomination
for the office of Governor : and rumor says that
one of them would prefer the $1,85;! allowed to
that office, under the present Constitution, to
the $1,000 allowed by the new one. They
also know that both parties will beanxiousand
confident in the election of their candidate, and
that the present Constitution will put the dis
posal of all the offices in the hands of their suc
cessful candidate : whilst, so far as the success
ful parly will be concerned, it could gain
nothing but by the defeat of the new Constitu
tion ; for this Constitution takes all the offices
out of the hands of the Governor, and puts
them in the hands and at the disposal of the
is'oplc. It is the calculation, therefore, that
each party, expecting to elect the ( iovernor. and
thereby having all the offices for the next four
years, provided the new Constitution is defeated,
will, either secretly or openly, oppose the ratifi
cation.
position of the office-holders —that the new Con
stitution can bo put in the least danger.
Now. considering the great superiority of the
new Constitution over the old
great cost to the State of this Convention, (to
say nothing of the extra session of the legisla
ture, or of the special election to bring it
about,) we should really view the defiatof the
new Constitution as one of the greatest po
litieal calamities that could belal the Stale at
this time.
We hope, therefore, that every friend of the
(Jew Constitution will seriously ponder on the
immense responsibility, which he incurs by put
ting off the ratification so long, especially as it
is the only step which can now be taken to put
in jeopardy that reform, which is so much
needed and so generally desired.

The steamship United States arrived here Ri
da;.-, with California dates to the 1st inst. She
left Aspinwall on the 18th inst. By this arrival
wc have a sad confirmation of (lie fears that
existed for the safety of the steamship Indepen
dence. That ill-fated boat on the ltitli of Feb
ruary was accidentally run ashore on the shoals
olfMargretta Island, offthe coast of Lower Cali
fornia. Immediately after striking, the ship was
hacked fill', but Captain Sampson, finding that
tiere w*!.cight feet of water in the hold,ordered
tSe pile» to run her on the beach,
accomplished, and she lay grounded about three
hundred yards from shore. While in this silu
'atHnn the 'intense heat of the furnaces set fire to
the surrounding wood work. and. spreading in
every direction, rendered the entire destruction
of the vessel inevitable. A terrifie scene
ensued among the five hundred passengers on
board. A heavy s irf was running at the time,
and the boats were all swamped in making the
first trip to shore, and many perished who had
embarked in thorn. M-Rile others managed to
reach the lieaeh in safety. To add to the hor
rors of the-scene on board, the fire readied the
powder magazine, the contents of which explo
ded with terrible force, scattering the fragments
in every direction. Many of the passengers
were blown into the sea by the explosion, and
others, leaping in, perished hÿ the strong cur

remain passive spectators of hundreds of men,
women, and children, perishing hy fire and
flood, without being able to allbrd tlie slightest
assistance.
The ship finally swung round broadside to
tlie beach, and the coal taking tire, completed
the entire destruction of tlie hull.
The passengers saved found themselves on an
uninhabited island, without water, where they
remained, enduring the most intense suffering
for 56 hours. Finally, by the firing of a cannon,
they were enabled to attract the attention of the
whaling vessels lying in Magdalena Bay, a few
ini les distant, who came to their assistance with
provisions, and finally took off the survivors.
