I Ol'AL AFFAIRS. Thk Hot Wkath kh.—F or more than two weeks this intensely hot wont 1 er has continued, tho thermometer standing above 90° in tho shade, each day. It is very oly thqt we have had, iu other t casons, more than three or four days of ex remely hot weather in succession. But the pres ent season is an exception. Tho highest degree of heat ] here, in the shade, was 108° on last. rar istcred uesday On the same day the therniometer was taken up on the roof of Lipptnoott's Hotel, whore some painters were at work, when it rose to 148°. On Tuesday and Wednesday, some .carpenters at work on a ding in this town, suspended labor at noon, the heat being too great for their endurance. The farmcrB have everywhere had to suspend labor in the fields, Tin the middle of the day. In nearly all the cities there are accounts of numerous cases of sun-stroke, many of which have proved fatal. buil Smyrna Circuit Camp.—M r| Wm.

Ample provision of i good things for the comfort of the inner man, had been made, and nfter dinner, tli« le monade, ice-crcam, and various kihds of cake, wore profusely dispensed, proving most grateful to the thirsty palates of all preseut. Cad: Island AVashino Away. —From 1804 to 1830 the sea washed away the shore of Cape Island, annually averaging thirteen feet, or three hundred and thirty- eight feet in that time. In ono of ihose yeurs it washed away one hundred I and ten feet, but of course in some other years the average was less. From 1830 to"1843 tho average was nine and a-half feet. The means now taken to preserve the shore front will probably prevent further loss to the island for many years to como.— New- ark Ado. -- Post Office Affairs. —Route No[ 2, 817, Camden to Hazlettsville, Delaware, begins at Wyoming, omitting Camdi and service is extended to Pearson's C ncr, three miles further, from tho 1st of August.

Mr Samuel Rothweli lost a fine hors* in the corn field on Wednesday, which fell at the plow and expired from the effects of the heat. Another horse was disabled at the same time, but will probably recover. A yoke of oxen belonging to another inlan, was overcome by the heat and one of them expired.

This bill, defining the conditions which the votes of the Southern Stales shall be received in the Electoral Collego, provides that the States lately in rebellion shall not be recognized in the Presidential election unless they shall have, since the 4th of March, 1867, adopted a State Con stitution and been admitted to representa tion in Congress. According to its pro visions the States of Louisiana, South Calr olina, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Arkansas will be entitled to take part in the coming election, they cither having been already admitted to representation or ratified the pending Constitutional Amend ment. Georgia will probably be exrth ded, as the lower house of her Legislature has a Democratic majority, which may re ject the amendment. Mississippi, in de feating the Constitution of the lteconBtru* tion Convention, lately held in that State, has placed herself beyond the possibility of participation in the political contest. With regard to Texas and Virginia If even they should be carried by the Radi cals, there is no possible chance of their being admitted to representation, as Con gress wiii adjourn befiore they can ratify their State Constitutions, and will scarce ly meet again until after the conflict for the Presidency shall have been decided. Under these circumstances it may be safe ly assumed that there will be but six of tho States represented iu the Electoral Col lege , unless the lower bouse of the Gcor l gta Legislature shall bo "purMj" of At Democratic majority, in which awent there will be seven, representing fortyoseven votes. T*»e UcniutrnHc Nominations—llow tin-)' urc Received. A'rom the Cincinnati Inquirer, Mr. Pendleton * Organ The democratic ticket is ouo of which not only tho party hut the country may woll hc.proad. It has boon long since there was sb strong a combination of intel lectual vigor, forco of character, and states manlike experience presoutod to the suffra S 8 of tho American people. Tho namo of oratio Seymour is a tower of strength, and challenges not only the warm admira tion of his political friends, but the speot, if not esteem of his opponents. If there is a man eminently qualified for the presidential office, who would fill it with dignity, with eonsumate tact, who would honor the place, it is Horatio Seymour. There is no qualification in which ho is deficient. He is a ripe scholar, a polished writer, a splendid orator, a profound think er, who has made tho science of govern ment his lifelong study; and in addition, he has every personal grace and accom plishment that arc properly associated with so exalted an office. He has a national fame and reputation as extensive as any man in the Union. More than all, ho is devoted ly attached to the constitution as it was made by the fathers, and would administer it strictly upon the principles of Jefferson and Madison. Not the least flaw or defect can ho found with his political record. No man has fought more gallantly the battles of the democracy and the Union. He has wielded an intellectual weapon in their be half as keen as a Damascus blade. The selection of Mr. Seymour is pecu liarly fortunate at this time, for the prac tice has latterly been to select mediocrity and inexperience for presidential honors, rather than eonsumate talent and ripe perienco. The eleetiou of Mr. Seymour would redeem us from the reproach that has been cast upon us, that it is impossible to place a first-class statesman in tho pres idential office. Tho delegates from Ohio and the West faithfully discharged thoir duty when, Mr. Pendleton being no lon ger in the field, they gave their votes to tho distinguished statesman of the Empire State. It is true there has been a diverg ence of views to some extent in the senti ments of Mr. Seymour and .Mr. Pendleton upon the greenbnek question, hut the adoption of a platform which is a substan tial affirmation of Mr. Pendleton's creed, and the acceptance by Mr. Seymour of a nomination upon it, will remove all diffi culty, and be generally acceptable to tho entire democracy of the country. Mr. Seymour being a man of high personal honor, may be safely trusted to carry out and give administrative enforcement to all the doctrines of the platform upon which ho is running, and in behulf of which the suffrages of the people are solicited. On the negro suffrage issue, and on all tho points involved in the so-called congres sional reconstruction, Mr. Seymour occu pies the most advanced democratic ground, as is well known to every one who has read his many magnificent addresses de nunciatory of tlie whole radical congres sional soheme. Mr. Seymour's sentiments on this question render him particularly acceptable to the democracy of tho great West. General Frank P. Blair, the nominee for vice-president, is another selection which possesses eminout fitness at this time. re t'X From the Concord, N. H. Patriot. Suffice it to say that the high character, eminent ability, signal public services, un blemished reputation, and undoubted pa triotism of Governor Seymour, with his life long devotion to tho great fundamental principles of the Democratic faith, will command the cofidcncc and attract to him the cordial support of the Conservative and patriotic among all classes of the peo ple. The nomination of General Blair for the Vice Presidency will be equally acceptable to the country. His gallant services in the war will commend him to the favor of all patriotic soldiers, and his known ability and earnest devotion to the great princi ples of the constitutional government will ensure him the cordial support of the Con servative masses. From the New Orleans Times, July 10. • The nomination of Seymour and Blair received everywhere with tho most unbounded enthusiasm. Meas ures were immediately inaugurated hy tlie Executive Committee of the Demociatie party for a grand ratification meeting to be held on Saturday week next, the 18th instant, at Lafayette square. From the preparations now under way this promises to be ono of the greatest events tliut lias occurred since the war. It is deemed proper that the white people of Now Or leans should marte manifest their ap proval of the many efforts made in behalf of their liberties hy the two great political giants now placed in nomination. From the Richmond Inquirer, democratic. The most powerful and crushing arraign ments of the republican party for its atro cious treatment of the South have been those of Governor Seymour. He will re ceive the enthusiastic support of the Mid dle and Eastern States, and if cordially siutained by tho friends of Mr. Peudleton liis election may be regarded as positively certain. * * * General Rlair is distin guished not only ns an able statesman, but as one of the most brilliant of the federal major generals who fought with Sherman during the late war. From the Boston Post, democratic. The contest is openod with the nomina tion of Horatio Seymour and Frank P. Blair. It really means—shall we have a civil, that is, a republican government ? or shall we consent to have our free and honored institutions put to the sword? The issue is between law and forco ; be tween right and might ; between justice and power. Democbatio TiitiNDK.it.—Tho Demo crats of New Castle fired 36 guns on tho receipt of the nomination of Seymour aud Blair, on Thursday afternoon. One hundred guns were fired in this ci ty on Saturday morning in honor of the same auspicious event.— Del. Gazette. Mrs August Bcluioiit is tbe daughtor of Comodorc Perry. üm«( Kxt-IUi eut In WJ lug ton. A hearing was had before Alderman Vincent, on Friday morning last, in a ease which excites considerable interest. The suit was instituted by a youi g mau named John Morgan, to recover the oustody of his half-sister, Mary Anna Riggs, whom he alleges has been seduecd from her home under the pretence that she is married to a harbor, named Wm. Valentine, who, it is also alleged, is a mulatto. It appears that one day last week, Valentino by pre vius arrangement with Misai Riggs, met hor in Philadelphia, and that they were married by a Rev. Mr. Cooke. The bro ther learning these facts repaired to that ci ty and brought her home. The next day Valentine demanded possession of the young woman ns his wife. Morgan de nies the legality of the marriage contract, on the ground that his sister is but If) years old and that Valentins has negro blood in his veins. The young woman acknowledges Valentino to he her hus band, exhibits her marriage certificate and expresses a determination to share his for tunes. Valentine denies that he is a nc gro, and asserts that his mother is white and his father of mixed Indian nnd Irish origin. Chug. G. llumford, toruey General appeared foil Thomas F. Bayard for Morgan, and An thony Higgins for Valentine. 1 After hear ing some of tho evidence, the Alderman postponed the case until to-morrow, in or der to allow the parties to adduce addition al evidence in support of their allegations. Tho case excites much interest, and a large number wero in attendance at the Alderman's office during the tr]ial. When the young woman left the office to return home, she was followed by the crowd, who exhibited their disapprobation by derisive laughter and jeers, as she passed to the carriage in waiting for hor at (he door.— Journal and Statesman.
