at MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, MAY H, 1870. Henry R. Torbert, of Elkton, and Judge Henry II. Goldsborough, of Eas ton, arc rival candidates for the Radical nomination for Congress, in the first con gressional district of Maryland. The con test will be a close one between them. Hon. Samuel Hambleton, the present Democratic incumbent, we suppose, will bd nominated for a second term. Mr. Samuel Townsend has addressed a letter to James Ponder, Esq. and others. State Delegates from Delaware to the Na tional Democratic Convention, held in New York, July, 1868, resigning his po sition as a member for Delaware, of the National Democratic Executive Committee. The Democratic County Convention at Dover, on Tuesday afternoon, was well at tended. Desolations favoring the suprem acy of the white race were adopted. Dr. Henry Ridgcly presided, and speeches were made by Chas. Brown, Eli Saulsbu ry, Rev. I. T. Cooper, J. M. Barr, and oth era. In connection with the Republican ination for Governor, the Del. Republi can mentions the names of Dr. Jump, T. B. Coursey, Benjamin Burton, J. S. Val entine, Joshua T. Heald, George Z. Ty bout, John F. Williamson, William Can by, William F. Stuckert, and Daniel Cor nom bit. Our article entitled—"How to write for the Press"—is going tho rounds of our exchanges, only one of them—the Cecil Whig—haring the honesty to give the Transcript credit. Soma Newspaper are incorrigible poachers. men Tne Democratic meeting at New Castle takes place this afternoon. A band of music and speakers will be in attendance. Political Affairs. The New York World says :—The Pres idential campaign of 1872 is to be formally opened at Raleigh, North Carolina, next week, by tho Republican Convention of that state. Our Washington special des patch says that General Grant will bo nominated for President, and Senator Joseph C. Abbott (carpetbagger), of North Carolina, will be nominated for Vice President. The movement takes place with tho full knowledge of the Pres ident, and is intended to put him in the field early enough to head off the other as pirants in the Republican ranks. Hon. Allen Rutherford, Third Auditor of the Treasury, goes to Raleigh to engineer the movement. The Philadelphia Age says:—Several prominent Radical politicians from the in terior of the State, are in town. The matter under discussion is a successor for Governor Geary. Col. Forney's friends are sanguine of success, but the more con servative members of the party declare that his nomination would give the State to the Democracy by thirty thousand ma jority. The contest bids fair to be both spirited and personal. Forten, the negro, now engaged in forming leagues among that race in all parts of the State, is for Forney. Colfax and Greeley.— The New York Sun is of opinion that Greeley's chances for the Governorship of New York and Colfax's prospects for the next Presidency, have been pretty well settled by the nection of those distinguished personages with the McFarland frec-love tragedy. The ever smilling Colfax certainly made a blunder by his officious sympathy in that case. But it may be doubted wheth er he or Greeley ever had a chance for either fosition, with or without the alli ance with free-lovers. The colored men of Wilmington, Del aware, are opposed to a raid being made upon this State by "negro carpet-bagg ers," and have published a "card" re questing Radical outsiders to permit them to manage their owu affairs in their way, and not to send any colored to the State to canvass in the approaching campaign, unless at the request or with the consent of the resident, recognized State Committee. An election was held in the Third Dis trict, Kentucky, last week, for member of Congress, to fill tho vacancy occasioned by the resignation of J. S. Golladoy. The white men triumphed over the niggers, by giving the democratic nominee three thousand majority. Nine hundred groes voted for the mongrel ticket. The election for Mayor and*Councilmen passed off quietly in Cumberland on Mon day. The entire Democratic ticket for the Council was elected. The Republi cans elected the Mayor, 130 negroes vot The Democrats gain two Council over last year,when the Republicans, beside the Mayor, elected two members. The reconstructed State of Georgia has elected seven United States Senators, one of whom has yet been admitted. G or.

Of course, no one was to blame. The nears eDgl were watchful and competent, and all possible care taken to prevent such ooeurrences. This is the old tale. But it is nonsense. Nine-tenths of tho rail _,_.,_, . .... road aceidcpts are occasioned by tbe care lessness or locoinpetenoy of those having pharge of tho trains, and if a few of the Amendera were hung traveling would be fnueh safer.

Chief Justice Gil pin, and Associates Wooten and Houston on the bench. The names of Jurors were called, when George Z. Tybout was sworn as foreman of the Grand Jury. Edward G. Gradford, Jr. and Robert C. Fraira were admitted to practice in the Courts of this State. On the first day six persons were convicted of selling liquor without license, and on Sunday, and fined accordingly. Five were convicted of larcency, and sentenced to imprisonment and stripes. William M. Wilson, indicted for resisting the summons of Constable John W. Wright, of Ap pociuinimink Hd. was found guilty and fined $50 ana costs. George H. Smith, late assistant keeper of the Insane Department, of the alms house, indicted for assault and battery on Rarton Palmer and Charles Gifford, inmates of the same, was found guilty and was sentenced to pay a flue of $10 in each case, and be imprisoned for each offence six months. On Tuesday, five convictions for violating the license law, and seven for larceny. James and John Murphcy, indicted for assault and battery on Jefferson B. Foard. Guilty and sentenced to imprisonment for 15 months and to pay a fine of $500 each. State vs. Sarah Jane Crawford, a negro girl of 15 years of age, for burning the barn of William Vail, in St. Georges Hundred, whose servant she was. The only testimony in this case, was the confession of the prisoner made to William M. Stuttgart in the office of a magistrate. Upon ob jection of Mr. Ruraford, counsel for the prisoner, that the confession was not entirely voluntary, tilt Court in consideration of the tender age of the prisoner, ruled it out. Sheriff Richardson testified that the prisoner after arrest made a vol untary confession to him that she had burned a barn, without particularizing it. Verdict not guilty. Faustyn Gabrielwitz, a Philadelphia picture broker, was convicted on Wednesday of nbtain ing money under false pretences, by selling as Hamilton's a picture not painted by that artist. A series of interesting sermons on the Deca in the course of delivery by Rev ^ Dr. Patton, of the Presbyterian Church, in this town. The third of tho course, on the vice of profanity, so commpn everywhere, was delivered on the 1st instant. The fourth, the sanctity of the Sabbath, was delivered on Sunday last, the 8th iust. On that day, the French people were holding a gen eral election, throughout the Empire, plebiscitum. A whole nation engaged in the des ecration of the Lord's day. Tho speaker did not advert to the fact, hut logue, ■ doubt not it was ning in the minds of some of his auditors. It would have been well for France, if similiar ser mons could have beed preached, on that day, in all her pulpits. Instead, however, masses were said, in all the churches, by order of the Empress; for the success of the plebiscitum. Thus not only desecrating the Sabbath, but prostituting religion to the purposes of lite! refined!! tion ! ! ! ! ! And France is tened ! ! !

Mr. Samuel Crawford, in Middle Neck, 8urcd one of the hail stones, after the storm was over, which measured Gj inches in circumference. A chicken in Mr. Benjamin Crawford's yard was struck upon the head by a hailstone and instant ly killed. The hail extended to the vicinity of this town, but did no damage of consequence in this section. A few miles north and cast of this place, some peaches were shattered off by it, and flowers and shrubbery were damaged to some extent. In Delaware City the storm was heav ier and the hailstones so large, that after laying all night they could be gathered up in considera ble quantities next morning. At Woodside Small Fruit Nurseries, the residence of Henry Clayton, Esq. near Mount Pleasant Del. some four or five hundred panes of glass were broken out of his hot house, and his strawberry and oth er plants were much cut by the hail. The flow ers and shrubbery at the residence of Mr. Samuel Brady, were beat down, and others suffered more or less who resided within the track of the storm. Rev. Dr. McCabe, Rector of St. Ann's, will make the late Richmond disaster the subject of his attention, to-morrow morning, and afford the congregation an opportunity to contribute to the relief of the sufferers. Seventy-five persons lost their lives by that distressing calamity, and about three hundred others were wounded. Con tributions have been forwarded from most of principal cities, and the appeal which is to be made to-morrow, it is believed, will be responded to in a most liberal manner. Au Old Folks' Concert will be given in the Town Hall, Smyrna, on next Thursday and Fri day evenings. It promises to be one of the most entertaining concerts ever given in the town.

A correspondent near Port Penn, sends the fol lowing :—In a town not a hundred miles away two teachers, one a Democrat, and the other ve ry black, "teach the young idea how to shoot, " in the district schools. Meeting the other day, the latter queried of the Democrat what he would do if the "darks" came to his school. "Well if the law sends them I supposa they must come;" resignedly replied our friend.

It was one involving damages for the slaugh ter of a pet dog by the careless driver of a street car. The dog was run over and killed ; the owner brought suit for sixty dollars, and the company retained Miss Barkalo for the defence. Instead of seiz ing the opportunity to distinguish herself in court, the lady advised her clients to settle, which they did on favorable terms. In view of this incident, we are forced to credit Miss Barkalo with having produced the strongest testimony in favor of wo man's right to practice law. Her course was not at all professional, however. An insurrection in the interest of the Neapolitan Bourbons broke out recently in one of the southern provinces of Italy, but was not formidable.

T. EVANS, MIDDLETOWN, DELAWARE. THE VALVE JAR. É We invite the attention of the public to the merits of a new Fruit Jar, patented March loth, 1868. It embraces all the ele ements of a Complete Jar, and obviates every objection urged against those now in use. It is known that various Fruit Jars have been advertised us self sealing, but experience hag pro ven that no self-scaling jar has heretofrore been made. The fastening of this Jar is a spring wire coil, unlike any known jar fastening, the pressure of winch is brought to bear directly upon the coAcr, which is raised imperceptibly by boiling, and being closed by atmospheric pressure, it op perates as does a safety valve, and when the Jar is ^removed from boiling water, it is instantly self-sealed. We request a critical exapination of its simplicity and efficiency, also a comparison with all other Jars. The trimmings comsist of three pieces : 1st. the Coil, 2d. the Tin Cover, 3d. the Gum Ring. A sample Jar, with coil, cover, gum ring, und "cooker," will be carefully boxed and sept to any address, ppon receipt of 50 cents E. T. EVANS, Agent fpr Middletown. may 14—2m WOOL WANTED!!
