MIDDLETOWN, DEI.. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 22, 18Ü8. FOR PRESIDENT, HORATIO SEYMOUR. OF NEW YORK. FOU VICK PRESIDENT, ÖEN. FRANCIS P. BLAIR OF MISSOURI. tor uiRRirr, JACOB RICHARDSON, FOR CORONER. LA WRENCH PHNDKGR ASS. Will Grant Wltlidinv, The Washington correspondents of the New York World and tho New York Her ald, have both given currency to the ru mor that Gen. Grant is anxious to with draw from the Presidential contest, his journey to the West having convinced him that lie stands no possible eliauce of elec tion. The National Intelligencer, also discusses the matter. The report is that the lethargy of the Republican party, and the total absence of everything like en thusiasm, has discouraged him, and lie feels that lie would like to withdraw. But, certain leaders of the party, having " put their heads together," in grave considera tion of tho subject, have decided that " it will never do." The effect of such a step by Gen. Grant, upon the fortunes of the Republican parly would he disastrous in the extreme, and it lias been decided that it would he better for General Grant to " grin and hear it," rather than to retire from tho field, and leave the fortunes of the Radicals to wilt and wither like a cau liflower in the sun. While some accept these statements as true, ethers reject thorn ; hut certain it is, that there is an air of probability about them, which chal lenges our credulity. "Where there is so much smoko," says the old saw, " there must be some fire;" hut whether theso cor respondents have grounds for all thoy say upsn the subject, tlie public have no means of determining. Our own view of the .matter is, that it makes hut little differ ence, whether General Grant withdraws from the contest or not. A survey of the whole field will convince the observant mind that his chances of election are very slim, indeed. The democratic veto, in I860, was divided between Douglas and Breckinridge, while Bell and Everett were in the field, aud drew off a consid erable portion of the old lino whig vote, that would otherwise have been east for one or the other of the démocratie can didates. Mr. Lincoln was elected, hut he was in a miuority of one million of votes, —— counting all others against him. Now, the Democracy arc united, throughout the length and breadth of the land ; the lar ger part of tho Bell and Everett vote will be east for their candidates ; while they arc strengthened by large accessions, in every State, from the ranks of the conser vatives. Tho Democratic party, over for midable in numbers, is now more formi dable than ever, bccauso it is not only unitod and harmonious, hut it is buoyant with hope, aud full of confidence and en thusiasm, and is greatly strengthened by large accessions from tho ranks' of tlie more moderate men among its former op ponents. The current of popular feeling is setting strongly against the Radicals, as all the elections prove. Their Congres sional policy is utterly condemned ; their millions of dollars for the freedmen's bu ~ *retru7 To fcsuL. clothe and educate tho ne gro; their 50,000 standing army in time of peace, to "eat out the substance of the people," and to dragoon our southern cit zens into submission to the negro ; their assault upon tlie Supreme Court; their thrioc attempted impeachment of the Pres ident and seizure of the Executive depart ment of the government; their investing the negro with the power of the ballot ; all this, and more, has aroused an indig nation iu the popular heart, that will not bo appeased until tho power ofRadicalism is utterly overthrown. This appears to he a legitimate conclu sion from a calm, rational and dispassion ate review of the whole field, and we com mend it to the sober reflection nud oonsid eration of all Radicals who hope to buoy up the sinking spirits of their party by throwing up their caps and keeping up delusory hope of tlie success of their didates until tho Idos of November shall effectually dispel it. ' ! a can Tho Democratic State Convention will assemble at Dover on There is considerable speculation as to who is likely to receive tlie nomination for Congress. The gentlemen named in the lists ore—Hon. John A. Nicholson, 0. B. Lore, Bsq. Maj. B. T. Biggs, Dr. Switli in Chandler, James M. Johns, Edward Ridgely, and John II. Payntft-, Esq A nomination is equivalent to an election, hence a spirited contest for the honor may ho anticipated. Wednesday next. rs. As wo go to press refreshing showers »re falling, which will mature the corn. Hickory I*< v liMaltijr ul St. The.Democrats of St. Georges raised a fine Hickory Pole, on Saturday last. The pole was 109 feet long, and in attempting to raise it some of their of ly note met is old, old. of " in tho a to to Mr. 1 the I tlie ber ropes gave way, and the pole fell, coming in contact with Mr. Minor Harvey and Mr. McWhorter, neither of whom were very seriously hurl. Nothing daunted they took off a section ut the pole, and set it firmly in iis place, giv ing their borgec or streamer to the hr intending to ro-splico and raise tlie entire pole at a subsequent day. The meeting in the evening was large and enthusiastic, aud was addressed by Noble T. Biddle, Esq. of Klktou, and by II. A. Nowland, Esq. of this vioinity. The Odessa Band was present, and added additional interest to the occasion by its enlivening strains. The rearing of hickory poles was intro duced as an electioneering feature, during tlie campaigns of Gen. Jackson, v. lio bore the soubriquet of " Old Hickory," given to him by his grateful and enthusiastic countrymen for the distinguished part lie bore iu the bloody battle at the Hickory Grounds. It also possessed considerable significance as to tho heroic character and stem nature of tlie man. ZC, ; by Ho was tougher than hickory itself, for hia ene mies, though hacked by the money power of tlie United States Bank, could never break him down. On the contrary, he vanquished every adversary, and bore down all opposition. Such is the signifi cance of the Hickory Polo now. The De mocrats mean to overcome the opposition in the present campaign, hence they arc again hoisting their Hickory Poles. Call for the Rkabskmelinci of Con gress. —The Washington Star, of Monday afternoon, has the following, which in not surprising in view of the desperation of the political element which undertakes to govern and perpetuate its power in the (South : " A movement is on foot among South ern politicians looking toward a call from the Southern Legislatures for Congress to reassemble in September.

Reminiscences or tub Past.—A copy the of of to to of the Federal Gnzetto and Baltimore Dai ly Advertiser, of the 80th July, 1790, has recently found its way to the office of the Baltimore Sun, which journal has made a note of its contents. The 4tli Congress met in Philadelphia, and an act of that session, signed by George Washington, is contained in its columns. The latest intelligence, from Boston was eleven days old, and its European news three months old. Among the advertisements was one of a book by John Ilagerty, of Annapolis, " wherein are stated the disadvantages arising to the State of Maryland from the proposed law before the General Assembly in reference to the cross-cut oanal between tho Delaware and Chesapeake Bays." Win. McDonald & Co. 208 South st. an nounce the "Philadelphia and Baltimore Water and Land Stages, a sailing boat leaving the lower end of Bowly's Wharf every day, (Saturdays excepted) stopping a few minutes at the County wharf, Fell's Point, to take in water and proceed to Frcnehtowu, where stages will be waiting to couvoy passengers to New Castlo, and where another packet is waiting to proceed immediately, wind and weather permitting, to Chestnut street wharf, Philadelphia." There was another line of packets to Phil adelphia via Bohemia and Appoqninimink, Mr. T. Robinson being the proprietor, who guarantees that "one week is the greatest lougtli of time required for the transportation of merchandise or heavy ar 1 tides from either of the extreme points of the line, although light articles will be delivered in four or five days after ship ping." Tho contrast presented by these arrangements with the facilities for travel and transportation now, brings to our view I ho rapid strides our country lias made iu tlie march of improvement, within the 72 years which have elapsed since then, a pe riod within tin: recollection of quite a num ber of our oldest citizens still liviug in this town and neighborhood. lie he not of to the to be -(il to the Bail Road Accident. —The locomotive "Thomas Clayton," of the 1.85 Express Train, on Monday morning, was thrown off the track, at Middletown, by the dis placement of the switch.

Another locomotive was telegraphed for to Wilmington, which came down, and at 4 o'clock took the train on towards Crisfield. On the Tucs day night previous, some malicious per son ran a wood ear off the switch ou the main track, and the approaching train struck it and knocked it off the track, do ing no damage. An inquiry into these malignant acts ought to be instituted, in order to ferret out the perpetrators. 5tli, Elotomen-t.— We learn that an English uiiod Yfiiiiam D.

The 'Squire wrote out the commit ment, and held Miller in custody until late in the evening, with the expectation of getting a constable to take him to prison, but failing in this, the man was discharged on liis own 'recognizance to appear before that officer on Saturday next.

She proposes to impart instruction in this beautiful art to' a class in this place. We took a ride, on Wednesday, in company with several gentlemen, to see the celebrated Peach Orchard of Mr. Ed ward 0. Feniuiorc, situated in Appoquin iuiiiik Hundred, not far from tlie mouth of Appoquiuiiuink creek. This name, we were told, is the Indian term for " Crip pled Duck," but judging from the looks of the beautiful country through which our route lay, wo should say that, finan cially speaking, there are very few crip pled ducks there. Certainly Mr. Fcni morc is not one of them, nor is he likely to be, while his orchard of 100 acres is as prolific as it has been for the last eight years, in no season yielding him less than $20,000, and some years rising conside rably above that sum. When our party arrived at his wharf, about noon, he had just finished picking for the day, and his steam-tug, which lie employs at $25 per day, was gliding down the oreek with a schooner in tow, and 285 baskets of lus cious peaches on board, bound for New Castle, llis crop, this year, will amount to somewhere between six and ten thou sand baskets, which are bringing him from $4 to $0 per basket according to quality, and earlier in the season they brought as high us $10 per basket. Mr. Fenimoro's orchard presents a most flourishing and healthy appearance, and gives evidence of having received the most careful attention. Some thief went into Mr. Charles Ad ams' Ice House, about a mile from Mid dletown, on Friday night last, and carried off, as he supposes, about three hundred pounds of ice. On Saturday night, a swill-barrel, which he had left on the premises of Mr. J. 1$. Peakyne, Middle town, was carried off. Not long since, Mr. Adams found one of his hogs nearly dead, one morning, from the compression of a stout wire, which had been twisted tightly around its body, just behind the forelegs. The presumption is, that it was the intention of the miscreant who placed the wire around it, to take the hog away. These parties may ere lung find them selves in the clutches of the law, unless they refrain from meddling with other people's property. of iu in ter, of of lier is es Killed. — Tho Delawarean says: —A white man named Joseph Outten, a resi dent of Milford, said to have been a drun ken, disorderly oharacter, was instantly killed near Bower's Beach, last Saturday, by being run over by an ox cart.
