Mr. Colclazer, the little ones were dis

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-

Electoral College 11111 .
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.

crats of New Castle fired 36 guns on tho
receipt of the nomination of Seymour aud
Blair, on Thursday afternoon.

ty on Saturday morning in honor of the

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.—
