If this be so, the farmers know how to apply the remedy, them are turniug their attention more to »mall fruit, while others are trucking, to some extent, together with the production of the ordinary cereals.

The above statement of the Wilmingt Commercial, that •• the Middletoion Tran zcrijH studiously ignores the Gazette and drama all ita Wilnjingtoo political news from tho -fournil Æ State I man, is simply untrue, as our files will prove, cently, we have quoted from the latter per ; but, arc we not at liberty to do without invidious remark from the Cçm merctal T Tho Gazette very properly pub lishes its local political occurrences in ex fr»so ; the Journal and Statesman, in the instances referred to, published the in a condensed form. The Transcript cop ied from the columns of the latter from it nre Several times, re pa same paper, because its item* were brief; brevity being necessary, for the sake of greater variety, in a weekly newspaper ; not that the Tran - neript " studiously ignores the Gazette as falsely alleged by the Commercial. From the Commercial of a more recent date, we clip the following : Pays it Bace.—T he Gazette takes advantage of our item concerning the Transcript ignoring it and quoting entirely from the Journal and Statesman, to deal these papers, one of which doubtless re gards ns as a carpet-bagger and the other poacher on ita own preserves, a most vicious dig. it says the Gazette is so much read about Middle town that it is useless for the Transcript to copy from it nnd it therefore copies from papers rarely and but little read in Middletown, nnd adds : A larger nnmlier of Gazettes arc sent to subscrib ers at that office than of both of the other papers named together." The Gazstte forgets that Ma jor Biggs and eleven other people subscribed for the Journal shortly after it apostatised, probably nearly doubling its bona fide circulation. We should also suppose the Transcript has several subscribers In Middletown. Its claim seems ex travagant. When we first cursorily read the Ga zette's rejoinder to the Commercial, we sup posed its allusion to • ' both the other pa pers," referred to the Republican papers in Wilmington. If it referred to the Transcript, we beg to assure the Gazette that it has '■ counted without its host." We still thiuk the Gazette referred to the Wil mington papers ; because the editor knows nothing concerning the number of Tran scripts which circulate in Middletown ll and he would not affirm that which he docs not kuow. We also assure the editor of the Gazette that wc knew nothing of the number of papers received here from his office, until his paragraph led us to in We find enough to do to attend to quire. our own business and let the affairs of our neighbors alone, quadrupled, we should be gratified, for recognise him as a co-worker with us iu a good cause ; and if his sphere of useful ness is wider than our own, it is no ground for envious feeling in us ; because we are satisfied with our own success, which has exceeded our highest expectations. The supposition of the Commercial that ' regard him as a carpet-bagger," is gratuitous, and hardly creditable to his sagacity, if he be a specimen of the uine Yankee; for, in truth, wc have not regarded him at all. He is an utter stran ger, and may have dropped down from Massachusetts or the moon, for aught that we know, with or without a carpet-bag. It naught concerns us,)who or what he is. We therefore dismiss him, as Uncle Toby did the fly—" go, poor thing ; there is room enough in the wide world both for thee and me." Were his numbers we we ' gen A Question Answebed.— The Commer cial asks :— Does anybody suppose that the State of Dela ware will long remain wedded lo the false De mocracy of the Bayards, Salisburys, Biggs, the Gazette and Delawarean, while the 'Delaware Tri bune enters weekly into half the families in the Suite, We should think not. To which the Sussex Journal responds as follows :— The Delaware Tribune has so far succeeded in negroizing Delaware (see returns of late elections) that it is due the thauks of the Democratic mas ses. One moreyaukee "Journal" like that would swell the majority to five thousand. Their dose of negro has turned the stomachs of many white men who have acted with the Republican party. The Election in Philadelphia, on Tues day, was most actively contested, and the aggregate vote was the heaviest ever cast in the city.

Party Meetings.—Wc received from the Secretary, the following notice of the Democrat* meeting held in this town Saturday evening, the 3rd inst. which crowded oig of our last issue. Pursuantto a call the Democrats of St. Georges and the adjoining hundreds in large numbers at the hotel of L. R. Davis, Ksq. iu Middletown, Del. on the ■id inst. ^delegations were present from St. Georges, Odessa, Armstrong's Corner, and other towns. The Odessa Cornet Band drove through the streets in their handsome Band wagon and enlivened, the occasion with music, and created a great deal of enthusiasm. At eight o'clock the meeting was organized by Mr. R. C. Flays of Odessa, being called to the chair, and Mr. Wm. R. Cochran was appointed Vico President and Mr. E. Reynolds Sec retary. Hon. Wm. G. Whitely was then introduced nnd proceeded to address the meeting in an earnest and forcible ncr for about one and a half hours, was , Oil was met mnn He followed by II. A. Nowland, Ksq. in a very able address of an hour. Congressman, Maj. B. T. Riggs, then called for, hut excused himself the ground of weariness from his exertion in Wilmington, on the previous evening. Calls were made for several other gentle men, but all excused themselves, as it was growing late, nnd about eleven o'clock the assemblage adjourned, highly pleased with the result of the meeting. The Republicans held a public here, on Monday night last, which addressed by Anthony Higgins, Esq. and Col. Brown, of Kentucky. The Democrats held a mass meeting at Delaware City, yesterday. Messrs. T. F. Bayard, Richard Vaux, of Philadelphia, and Maj. B. T. Biggs, were announced as the speakers. Tho Odessa Saxe-IIorn Band was engaged. The Democrats of St. George's Hun dred will hold a mass meeting at Odessa, on Tuesday evening next, at 7 o'clock, to which the Democrats nnd Conservatives of the adjacent Hundreds arc invited, meeting will he addressed by Thomas F Bayard, Charles B.

A. G. Curtin, Senator A. G. Cattell, of N. J. and Hon. Jas. II. Campbell, of Penn. An excursion train will run from Wilmington to Middletown, to return the same evening. Rail Road Affairs.— The work the Queen Anne's and Kent county Railroad is still progressing rapidly, and the whole road graded, except about eight miles. As soon ns the Delaware branch is built from Townsend to Masseys Cross Roads, the contractor, Mr. Stearns, will commence laying the track. We understand Mr. G. A. Par ker will commence to deliver iron at Townsend, this week, for the Branch Road. One hundred tons will be sent down in a few days. The temporary pension on the Kent Road will not on SU8 pre vent the Queen Annes Company building the Delaware Branch up to Masseys. We understand the directors of the Kent Railroad have passed a resolution to put in suit all those subscriptions to the stock obtained in the vicinity of Middle town and Warwick, which are or may he withcld. These subscriptions, it is alleged, were obtained under the belief that thé road would be constructed from Massey's via Sassafras and Warwick to Middletown. But, ns Townsend hus been mudo the up. per terminus of that road, the subscribers residing in Cecil and in this part of New Castle county, if compelled by law to pay said subscriptions, look upon the one of peculiar hardship. They regard these subscriptions as a dead loss to themselves, under the circumstances, and as a gratuity to the said road. They' allege that the company will he unable, for many years, to pay any dividend, while the local benefit which they hoped to secure by making said subscriptions, has has been wrested from them by the company in fixing the terminus at Tow end. However tightly these subscribers may be legally bound, in an equitable view of the case there is some force in the argumente on their side, tion of the Board, published in our ad vertising columns. case as su 'in to ns Sre the rcsolu Stove and Tin Ware. —We dropped in at the Stove and Tin house of Mr. S. W. Roberts, a few days ago, and found his extensive establishment literally crammed, upstairs and down, with a large stock of Stoves, Tin Ware, and house furnishing articles, of the latest styles and patterns. He has on hand a large stock of Cook and Parlor Stoves, of various sizes and pat terns, calculated to please the taste of the most fastidious. We noticed among many others, some very handsome Sextons nnd Orientals. Give him a call. Cold ther is fast approaching, and he is pre pared to fill all orders in his line to tho satisfaction of his customers. wca Arrest of a Baoraoe Master.— For some time past several robberies have been committed on the P. W. & B. R. R. Trunks were opened nnd pilfered in the baggage car. A Philadelphia Detecti was employed to " work up" the case, and a few days ago he succeeded in detecting n named Younger, a baggage master, in the very act of rifling a trunk between here and Philadelphia. Younger was arrested on his arrival at Philadelphia, and has made disclosures as to the whereabouts of the missing property He has been in the employ of the compnnv a number of years and seems to have only commenced his depredations recently.— Commercial. ve There was a lnrger concourse of people in attendance nt the Circus and Menage rie, on Wednesday last, than we ever be fore saw present at a similar exhibition. selling their goods For bargains look into the advertising eolumns of the Trans cript.

Smyrna, was burned to the ground Thursday night of last week, was no lights or fires about the building, it is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. Tho building was nearly completed ; loss supposed to bo from $5,000 to $0,000. Five thousand si* hundred baskets of peaches, were sent from Appoquinimink Creek, this seasou, all the product of orehard, (Mr. K. C. Fenimore's) except about one thousand baskets. These peaches averaged, in market, $4.19 per basket, which makes the aggregate of $'23,464. The Republicans of Middletown impro vised a salute, on Thursday evening, in honor of Tuesday's elections. Their ar tillery consisted of a couple of anvils, which gave forth, however, some tolerable mimic thunder. R. C. near Oil Oil As there Commei'cial. oue in A find Policy. According to the New York Herald, a gentleman from Alabama, now ill Wash ington city, states that great numbers of the more respectable people in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, Rnd he doubts not in tho other Southern States long bad under consideration, and have made preparations for moving, some into California, some to the Northern States, and others to the Territories, in the event of Gen. Grant's election. He .says they are fully convinced that if the ropiibli are successful it will be utterly impossible for them to live iu the States where they now reside. We have heard intimations before of a similiar purpose entertained in another im portant State of the South ; but it is not at all likely that such an idea is generally entertained. There has been already a considerable emigration from some South ern localities, where the white population is small and defenseless, to the northern tier of Southern States, and even to the North and West. The selling out of pro perty and removal to great distance are not often accomplished in the best of times without sacrifice, but at the present prices of property in the South, to sell out is ve ry near to giving away. When to this is added the surrender of old associations, and the passing of the remainder of life in exile from the scenes and friends of early years, it must be confessed that it may well be a question with Southern land own ers whether it is not "better to bear the ills they have than to flv to others that they know not of," by emigration. m have ■ especi ally to a distant region like California, where, as appears from a lato number of the leading porodioal of that State, tho professions aro all over crowded. nnd tlioro is no prospect of any man improving h condition unloss ho either has oanital, by his labor tn mechanical and nSrionltur al employments can add to the productive wealth of the State.

He was fifty-three years of age.

If the annual expenses of the Govern ment, including the interest on the public debt, were to be paid by direct taxation the actual aiiiount of tax which man Oil every is obliged to pay into the Treasury annually would be so palpable, that the Radical party would be swept out of istence by a popular uprising. Four hun dred and fifty million* of dollars were drawn from the pockets of the people last year, and five hundred and thirty-six mil lions the year before, and warned that it, will require four hundred and seventy-five millions for the present year : nnd that fresh tuxes must bo im posed, as the estimated reoeipts will not be sufficient t(> meet the current expenses.
