MIDlll.ETOW.il, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 80, 186«. Attention Democrats!! Pursuant to the calls of the Chairman of the State and County Executive Committee«, a meet ing of the Democratic voter« of Saint George's Hundred, will be held at the house of William t. Chance, lu Odema, on Saturday. June the 6th 11 o'clock Iu the afn ernoon, for the purpose of ■ oWjtis g^Delegates to the State and Count; Nom MANY DEMOCRATS. The High Court of Impeachment ad journed tine die, on Tuesday last, after two more ineffectual efforts to eonviot the President. Votes were taken on the 2d and 8d articles, which resulted precisely at the first vote, on the 11th article, 35 to 19, one vote less than two-thirds. The Senate then as a Court of Impeachment finally adjourned, by a vote of 16 to 34. Thou, after a trial protracted through thirty-fouT days, this whole shameless and EMMMtrous proceeding bas come to an end. The President stands acquitted, and his enemies and accusers are overwhelmed with mortification and disappointment. The verdict, there can be no doubt in the wnprcjwdiecd mind, was just; rendered though it was, on the part of the seven Republican Senators who voted for acquit tal, under the most trying circumstances ever brought to bear upon a jury in this or any other country. All honor to these men, for their more than Roman devotion to the principles of truth, justice and right, in this ever-memorable case, and whose steadfast courage withstood the storm of purty passion which beat so mercilessly upon their devoted heads. The President through all this fiery ordeal, has deported himself with a calmness, a dignity and a propriety, which challenge the admiration of all men whose judgment is unperverted by the frcniy of party. The miserable pretence that these Senators were bribed, it but a shift of tho impeachcrs to cast off from themselves the odium which they are conscious attaches to their own acts. It is unworthy of the Senate, of the tryi and of all who repeat the foul tioa. As a party movement, it was as stupid as it was malignant, and we wonder that respectable, clear-sighted men among the Republicans in Congress, should have followed so blindly the lead of such as Stevens and Butler. The party has lost its prestige, and the failure of im peachment is an additional element of weakness which will serve but to hasten Its overthrow. The country may congrat uhte itself upon the issue. Reflecting ■*** have trembled at the impending peril tnour republican institutions, and at the ••wee strain to which they would have Wem exposed, had the President been de P°*ed- They feared the consummation •* the ill-advised scheme, and the dire *•«■*■**• beyond. But imply we have esenped, though only by a hair's breadth. The intense excitement occasioned by the trial will now, it is to he hoped, snbside, and the business of the country move for ward in its customary routine. coun accusa men eon 8ever»l of our Democratic eotemporarice are treating Beriously the proposition to nominate Mr. Chase as the Democratic candidate for the Presidency, deprecating •weh a nomination. Tho idea is too absurd •© be aeriously entertained. Do the Wash ington letter writers, and sensation-mon gers, with whom these things originate, believe that the party will so stultify itself, or that the rank uud tile can bo driven, like dumb cattle, to vote for a of of of any man, no matter whether he holds one single princi ple in common with them or not? Judge Chase is not a Democrat, nor is he a Con servative. He differs with his party in things, and chiefly in that he baa been overslaughed by Grant. But lie holds to the corner-stone of Republicanism— ne gro tuf rage— tnd no Democrat will go for that under any circumstances. Whoever may be the nominee will have to stand squarely on the platform, and that will have to be built of solid timber, without wind-fthake« or flaw« of and kind, and the New York builders will do well to bear this in mind. It is trifling with the best interests of the party to talk of Judge . Chase, or any one of similar antecedents. The wag» of the press are after Butler with «harp nibs. It will be remembered that he telegraphed to Onslow Stearns, on the 5th inst. from Washington as follows: " The removal of the great obstruction to peace and quiet it certain. Wade and prosperity are •ure to come with the apple blossoms. Signed B. F. BtTLER. The Baltimore Leader, quotes as fol lows, as to Butler and his »Sodom "apple blossoms "To-day he puts forth ' The teaderleavcs of hope, to-morrow blossoms, And bears bis blushing honors thick upon him. The third day comes a frost—a killing frost"— Another,—'alluding to Butler's failures numerates :—" Big Bethel, Fort Fish •r, Dutch Gap Canal, Impeachment. The apple blossoms have shed their bloom— 44 Leaves have tlieir time to full, And so likewise have I." A wit says the eleventh article was ta ken np first on scriptural grounds, as the impeachcrs hoped that a little 'leven wonld leaven Um whole lump. .. Wade's Cabinet will never com* from tlfe kinds of tbe furniture maker. Subscribe fob tue Tkaxscbipt. —Wc have often been unable to supply the de mand for extra copies of the Tran script. Many persons have called for it inted. The way to remedy this is to subscribe for it. We add extra numbers to our issue, from time to time, but the gradual increase of our subscription list Continually reduces them, so that we cannot always be prepared to furnish transient purchasers. If they would subscribe for it, they would then be sure of receiving it regularly. " and have been d Pendleton aiid Hancock.— We were in Baltimore, lost week, anil among the active business men of the city, there seemed to be a utrong feeling for Pendle ton, as the Democratic nominee for Presi dent, and Gen. Hancock foe Vioe Presi dent. Tltis would make a very strong ticket. Our poetic department, to-day, is en riched by some valuable contributions, and will be found more than usually attractive. We hope" these »re not the last favors of the kind we shall receive from the pens of these gifted authors. From WuhlAgtm. A Washington letter to the Philadelphia Age, of May 2Tth says:—The acquittal of the President! and the sudden dissolu tion of the Court has produced a feeling of relief among all classes here, except the ultra Radicals, who follow Wade's ex ample and utter curses loud and deep on the heads of several Republican Senators, who had more regard for the solemn oath they had taken than for tho behests of their party. From the ind cations to-day, both houses of Congress will endeavor for the remain der of the session to make up lost time, by attending more closely to regular legisla tive business, vfith a view to an adjourn ment about the first of July. The retirement of Stanton from the War Department, is hailed with general satis faction here, and no doubt throughout the whole country. It was expected by some that General Thomas would have assumed the control of the affaiis of the department but he has not done so, and the better opinion seems to be that the office will be permitted to go without a head until the Senate shall cofirm some nominee for the position. Mr. Charlei) W. Woolley, who was placed in the custody of the Sergcant-at Arms yesterday, by order of the House Jacobine, for refusing to answer Butler's impertinent questions, is still locked up in the room of the Committee on Foreign Af fairs. Butler questioned him as to the disposition he made of $20,000 traced to his possession. The witness answered that it was not used, directly or indircotly influence votes on impeachment, and yond that he i|eitorateu his determination not to answer. He was then remanded to the custody of the Sergeant-at-Arms, who again locked him np. It is understood that the President will shortly send to the Senate the nomination of Hon. Henry Stanbery to be Attorney General of the United States, to fill the va cancy caused by his own resignation when he entered npon the defense of the Presi dent against the articles of impeachment. It is stated that Secretary Seward and Postmaster-General Randell will shortly tender their resignations to the President. The reason assigned is that they have been desirous of retiring from the Cabinet for some time past, and only refrained from so doing on account of the impeachment trial, not wishing their friends to think that they had deserted the President under the then existing circumstances. » to be to Retirement of Mr. Stanton. After the adjournment of the court of impeachment Vestcrday, Mr. Stanton sent a communication to the President stating that the resolution of the »Senate of the 21st of February la|st, declaring that the Presi dent has no power to remove tlic Secretary of War and designate a successor ad inter im, having failed to be supported by the Senate, voting yesterday on the articles of impeachment, he relinquished the churge of the War Department, and had left the archives of thifc same subject to the Presi dent's direction. This may be taken as Mr. Stanton's last dying speech as a pub lic official, and is a fitting close to the great drama of impeachment, which winds up appropriately, in the final act, with the re moval, voluntarily or involuntarily, as may choose to be considered, of him only who was the first and superfluous cause of all the great trouble. The Mr. Stanton'tj letter: following in War Department, Washington City, May 26, 1868. Sir —The resolution of the Senate of the United States of the 2lst of February last, declaring that the President "has no power to remove the Secretary of W|ir and designate any other officer to perform the duties of that office ad interim having this day failed to be supported by two thirds of the Semite present and voting on the articles of impeachment perferred against you hy the House of charge of the V^ar Department, and have left the same and the erty in my custody as Secretary of War in the care of Brevetl Major General Townsend, the senior Assistant Adjutant General, subject to your direction! ( Signed ) To the President. } resentatives, I have relinquished ks, archives, papers und prop Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. The letter of " Gondolier," is deferred until our ncj|t issue. Also our letter from Baltimore. The thirty eighth annual Convention of the New England Anti-Slavery Society was held in Boston on Wednesday. Wendell Philips made a speech, in which he said thcnadicals were killed by tho failure of impeachment. Resolutions were passed abusive of the President; that owing to the defeat of impeachment at the hands of the republican party the nation was justi fied in distrusting its leadership ; con demning the Chicago platform ; protest ing against the admission of "Rebel"States, etc LOCAL. AFFAIRS. to at "Fast Horses. —The turf is subject to change, as well as everything else. The running horso used to be the pride of sportsmen, and is yet in England, but in this country the trotting horse seems to be more highly esteemed. Even those who never participate in the sports of the turf, like to have a pair of good roadsters that can move along at the rate of ten or twelve miles an hour. We are, emphatically, a " fast" people, and in nothing do wc ex hibit this national peculiarity more than in our fast horses. We do not intend to speak of the performances of Flora Tem ple, Patchen, Dexter, and other celebri ties of the trotting turf. Those are sufficient ly familiar to our readers. We purpose only to make brief mention of some of tlic fast horsoB in our own neighborhood, several of which possess 2.40 speed, it is said. Mr. J. Cazicr used to own, and perhaps does yet, as fine a trotter as any wc have ever seen in this section; and what is worthy of mention, he used to take proper care of her. It is too often tlic fate of fast horses that they arc sadly abused by being over driven, and forced beyond their strength and endurance. We never see a harem scarcm Jehu behind a fast horse, forcing him beyond bis powers, that we do not think the horse is the nobler animal of tlic two. so Mr. J. W. Mulford, near Summit Bridge, owned a very fine trotter, but since his removal from the county, we understand the horse has been in the pos session of Mr. Carnagliy. We saw him attached to a sleigh, luBt winter, and he gave us a very favorable idea of bis powers of locomotion. Mr. Samuel B. Foard, jr. of Elkton, owns a young horse called " Cecil," bred on Bohemia Manor, by our young friend Jefferson B. Foard, who sold him for $400, and his prcBcut owner has been offered $1300 for him, report says; but he is so well pleased with his go-ahead qualities, that he lias not yet consented to part with him. Mr. Joshua F. Biddle, of Bohemia Manor, also raised a very fine horscand rapid motor, "Stonewall," which ho sold for nine hundred and fifty dollars. Mr. John G. Hicks, of Christiana Hun dred, has one of the fastest horses in the county. It is claimed that he can trot a mile in 2.38. He is of tlic Reybold stock, and is called the " Quebec Horse." Mr. Charles Derrickson owns a very fine pacer, wbich has made rapid time, surpassed by few horses in the State. Mr. J. AV. Baker, of Elkton, has a pair of nimble-footed animals, which it is sup posed would be rather ' • hard to beat," on trial. Mr. Snipucl Gillespie, of Warwick, lias a horse of fine motive powers, under whose feet "no grass grows," when "Sant" holds tlic "ribbons. Mr. Richard C Hayes, of Odessa, has a horse which it is believed can "take 'em all down," when Mr. Thomas Coch put to his mettle, ran, in the vicinity of Middletown, has the fastest "pair," perhaps, in the neighbor hood , and one of them is mneh fleeter than the other. Mr. J. Wilson also has a very good roadster, which moves at something less than telegraph speed when he is fully ' ' straightened out. horses in the neighborhood, which want of space will not permit us to refer to now. But before closing our horso talk, for the the present, wc must not omit to mention a very superb black horse, in the posses sion of Mr. Ilosca Riddle, of Newark, re markable for his fine appearance, as well as his fine action. There are other fine of Two prize fighters, Carroll anil White, came to Elkton, on Saturday last, from Baltimore, attended by a crowd of the fan cy, and from that point came across the lines into Delaware, trudging on foot through the mud and rain, and pitched their ring just within the borders of this Stato. Carroll leaped into the arena an nouncing himself ready for the fray, but White would not fight, alleging as the cause tlic absence of his friend and second Sam. Colly er. The party then returned to Elkton, but finding a posse of Baltimore police in waiting, scattered in different di rictions. No arrests, however, were made. Sheriff Herbert did not hear of the pres ence of the pugilists in this State, until af ter they had left. Collyor had been with the party, but retraced his stops to Elkton and took the next train for Baltimore. The Foot Race. —Frank Hull's great match against time, five miles in 35 min utes, over the Warwick course, will conic off on Monday next, weather permitting, for a stukc of $200. Although engaged in this race, Frank is no " sport," but a very iudustrious, sober, studious young man. And whoever stakes his money against Frank's wiud and muscle, will find out that lie docs so at considerable risk. His young friends about town have given him the soubriquet of " Dexter," after the cel ebrated horse of that naine. He will cer tainly prove himself dexterous, we think, in Monday's race. Hyland B. Penington, Esq. of Smyrna, offers at Public Sale in this town, June llth, his Brick Store and Dwelling situa at in Cocilton, Maryland, about nine miles from Middletown. This is an old business stand, and a desirable property for any person wishing to engage in any mercan tile business. Go and sec. The Delaware Gazette made several er rors ill referring to Mujor Biggs' land, nur series, 4c. Besides, it added five years to the Major's age, which, if he were a single man, would be a very serious mat ter. lie is 45 years of age, not 50; and has 1600 acres of land in Delaware cud Maryland, instead of 1400 as reported; and has sold but 400,000 peach trees this season, instead of one million. In report ing local intelligence, the press aims to get at the truth, but does not always succeed. And when it docs get wrong, it is well to set it right. Mr. Hunter, the Sabbath School Mis sionary, delivered six lectures recently in Odessa, and collected $82. Thirty-six children committed to memory the 1st Psahn, and received each a book for the same. He lectured again, in this town, on Thursday evening, and distributed re wards in books to thirty-three children who had memorized the 1st Psalm. The trial of Wm. Waters for the mur der of Win. Gaines, both negroes, in Mid dletown, on the 17th of August last, was begun at New Castle on Wednesday last, Moore and Rumford for State, Harrington for defense. A number of witnesses were examined, The case was given to the ju ry yesterday afternoon, and a virdict of acquittal rendered. Court then adjourned. Tho vote upon the upper terminus of the Kent Rail Road, was not taken at the meeting of the Directors which took place on Monday last. The question was de ferred until the next meeting, which takes place on Friday next. Anthony Perrigen, negro, was commit ted to New Castle Jail, on Thursday, for an assault upon Mr. J. II. Hukill, of this town. He gavo bail yesterday. The New York letter of tho Ledger, on Thursday, contains the following; Thurlow Weed is out in a statement over his own name in this afternoon's Commer cial, with reference to his examination be fore the Impeachment Managers at Wash ington. He conics to the conclusion that Senator Pomeroy cither intended to dispose of three votes (including his own) or he was willing that his friends should use his name to make money ; or, as some believe, there was a conspiracy between Butler and Pomeroy to implicate tlic President, thus obtaining new material for impeachment. Mr. Weed then proceeds to give, iu con siderable detail, bis "reasons for tlic faith tha,t is in him. he mixes up the names of a Mr. Leggett and a Mr. Gaylord, (intimate friends of Mr. Pomeroy, lie says,) who were not unwil ling to undertake, for money, to obtain the votes not ouly of that Senator, but also of those of Messrs. Nyc and Tipton. Never theless, the writer adds," I did not, nor do I" yet believe that Senator Pomeroy bai ted the hooks with which his friend Legg ett, and his brother-in-law Gaylord, fished. Whether they caught anything, or not, I am unable to say. Nothing certainly from me, or with my consent." And in that connection has A Shipload op Euiurants to Liberia. —The Savannah News has the following account of the departure of emigrants to Liberia from that port : The superior ship Golconda, owned by the American Colonization Society, went to sea yesterday with four hundred and fif ty-one emigrants for Liberia. Most of tho men arc farmers and mechanics, and are well supplied with agricultural implement# and tools. Turning lathes and the requi site machinery for saw and grist mills, for for which ample power abounds in Liberia, wero taken by some of the well to-do of them. Sewing machines were not forgot ten by the women. Our stores were pa- the tronized for some of these articles ; others were brought hy them. Free transporta tion in the ship was given them by the So ciety for all articles tending to promote the success of the emigrants and the repuh lie to which they go. A fair proportion of tho company can read, and some can read and write. The communicants of churches at are remarkably numerous. There are fivc licensed ministers of tho Baptist and Methodist denominations. pur The Busqueiianna Lumbek Business. —The lumber trade on the Susquehanna , during the pant week, and »till is, exceedingly brisk. At Marrietta, the land ing for the distance of scAcral miles is crowded with timber rafts, lying five aud six deep, probably three hundred in num ber. Many are hourly arriving, whilst about an equal number arc being chased by the Eastern buyers and dis patched through to tide water, from whence they are taken to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, &c. Prices range from four teen cents to nineteen cents per cubic foot, according to quality, being about three cents per foot loss than last years prices. The stage of water is now quite favorable for through navigation from tho head waters of the branches of the river to tide water, and will most likely remain so for some time, as the branches are reported as being still full, so that all tho timber and other lumber thut was in readiness will be brought to market this season.— Lancaster Ex. Proceedings of Court. —The case of Mears& Son vs. Joseph Waplcs, in which «vas involved about $15,000 worth of corn, was given to the jury on Wednesday morn? ing last, after having occupied a whole week of the Court. About 6 o'clock in the evening the jui^ came into the Court room, and asked for Home information in regard to certain pointa of the law. Ckief Justice repeated part of the charge he had delivered, after which they again retired to their chamber. The jury after wards returned a verdict for the defendant. This ca»o proved a very interesting one, and was ably arguod hy T. F. Bayard and Geo. Gray, Esqs. for tho plaintiff, and Hon. J. P. Comegys and Hon. Wm. G. Whiteley for the defeudant.— Del. Gaz.
