MIDDLETOWN, DEL. ». SATURDAY MORNING, JUNK 18, 1870. DlmtlifMtlo« Among the Republicans. The Republican» of this State are not in harmony. Dissatisfaction exists as to the result of the last nominating conven tion at Dover. Tko Smyrna Times iMiji :— Dr. Jump's name was presented by a large majority of Kent, to whom the ination was fairly and honestly conceded, was supposed, but really upou the dition that the candidato presented by the New Castle delegation should be accepted. It is useless lo ignore tile fact that the result lias caused great dissatisfaction in Kent and Sussex, especially the form To Kent was conceded the nomination by the New Castle Delegation ; prodded Mr. Causey should be the But the Kent delegation finding that they were ignored in their wishes and that no concessions would be made them, in short, that the Convention was packed for Mr. Coursey, withdrew the name of Dr. Jump from the contest. The Kent delegation must not be Understood as insist ing upon the nomination of Dr. Jump; nor as presenting any factious opposition ■V to Mr. Coursey, for whom as « gen tleman and Republican they have naught but the highest regard. The course of the New Castle delegates iu thus taking control of the party and setting aside the standard-bearers in Kent will, to say the least, create a general apathy among the Republicans or Kent and Sussex, unless some effected. nom con or. man. CO. compromise is The directors of the Elkton and Massey's Railroad were to have mot at Elkton, Tuesday lust, to devise a plan to raise a subscription sufficient, with the addition of tho 58,000 granted by the State, to put tho road under contract, aud to have it finished in twelve or eighteen months. If this hnd been done in the first instance instead of dancing attendance, cap in hand at tho doors of the Baltimore Council Chamber, the enterprize might have been much further advanced. An active vassing committee might obtain individu al subscriptions in Baltimore, but there was tho slightest prospect of getting aid from the city government, blind policy of Baltimore has suffered tho trade of this peninsula to he diverted from her, and she deserves it. ®ver regain it. She may do something, however, for the convenience of those de sirous of trading with her, by aiding this connection with Elkton. howover by individual subscription, the directors have seen, by this time, that this is the only way to raise the money to construct the road. Let them address themselves to the work before them with becoming energy, if they would succeed. on can never The pur Nor can she It must be done Greely utters, through the Tribune, indignant protest against the admission of IVhittcmore to his seat in Congress from which he was expelled for selling cadet ships, but lately re-elected by his black constituency. In this connection the Tri bune points to the working of negro suf frage coupled with the disfranchisement of the whites, and pronounces it graceful." The fruits of negro suffrage thuB early bitter to the lips of the great philosopher of tho Tribune, are yet des tined to become as wormwood to all those who like himself assisted i " dis the grafting of this Upas bud upon the stock of Tree of Liberty. our How IT Wokks.— Elections for delegates held by tho Republicans in I'hila were delphia, ou Tuesday. The Ago says the "Ring" roughs and the negroes had it all their own way, to the exclusion of the more respectable part of the Republicans. At a majority of the polls it was danger ous for a white man to appear who not endorsed either by the "Ring" or some prominent negro. If he attempted to vote personal violence followed, few cases occurred where old citizens, tax payers and property holders, were insulted and driven from the polls by drunken groes, cheered on by ruffians in the pay of the " Ring." Not a ne Tlic President's Cuba message, bas been severely eonsured in the House, by Gen. Banks and others. It was characterized "ill timed, impertinent and disrespect ful," thus to obtrude advico upon Con gress pending the consideration of sure in that body, mation to the Cubans to lay down their , arms and submit to the despotic rule of Spain. Tlie authorship of the message is nttributed to lion. Caleb Cushing, and the fact was alluded to in debate, in terms humiliating to the President's friends, while the floor and the galleries applauded. It is denied, however, that Mr. Cushing «rote tho message. Oen. It. City Crawford, it is announc ed, intends to start a Republican paper in Cbestertown, about tho middle of July. If Gen Orswford has moro money than lie wants, he is adopting a good plan to get rid of it. The farmers in Queen Anne's county, Md. commenced catting their white wheat qn Tuesday last.

We have amined the work aud find it to be plcte guide to the study of the Bible, is economy to purchase such a work, as it fills the place of six books, containing the Holy Bible, topically arranged; Cruden's Concordance, Life of Christ, History of the Jews, Pronouncing and Interpreting Dictionary, History of the Bible, Diction ary of lleligious Denominations in the World, &o. &c. An Alphabetical Index of subjects enables the reader to turn read ily to any subject desired, when all the verses of the Biblo bearing will be found.

I am well acquainted with Dr. Hitchcock's .. putation and ability, and have full confidence in the work which lie has prepared, entitled "Com plete Analysis of the Holy Bible," and commend it to those who would study intelligently the Sa cred Scriptures.

Prof. Hitchcock's work, " New and Complete Analysis of the Holy Bible," needs no recom inundation nt my hands. It seems to he complete in every particular, and must he a valuable aux iliary both to the student, and the ordinary reader of the word of God. John Collins McCabe, D. D. Princeton, N. J. March 1, 1870. Hitchcock's Analysis of the Bible is executed with great care, and fully accomplishes the cud designed by it. It is fitted to give valuable aid to all who would search the Scriptures, and know what they say on all topics, doctrinal and practical hearing on the faith and duty of man kind. Rev. James McCash, D. D. President of New Jersey College. Saint Georges, Del. April 21, 1870. The value of Hitchcock's Analysis cannot be over estimated. I commerid it to those who would study the Bible and know what it contains. Rev. D. J. Beale, Pastor of St. Georges Presbyterian Church. Fur the Middletown Transcript. Mr. Editor; —In looting over the last number of your valuable paper, my eye fell upon a long list of names of very wor thy gentlemen formerly of the old Whig party, now holding or who have held office under the Democratic party. I do not re fer to the matter but from the purest of motives, and to correct au important omis your list, and furnish you with such names as presented themselves to my mind. On looking over the publication the most important omission is the name of Dr. Wm. Burton, Ex-Governor of the State. I will now come nearer home, (St. Georges Hundred,) and present tho names of throe Road Commissioners—William Wood, Martin E. Walker, and Henry Clayton, Esqrs. Tho two latter are the present incumbents. John Enos ran for Assessor in same hundred, but was defeat ed. I have no doubt there are hundreds in the btate, if the matter was properly investigated, and I hope that other editors different parta of tho State will take the matter in hand and make the record com plete, not with a view to discriminate against such worthy gentlemen, but to show to the world that tho Democratic party is not only able but willing to ap preciate merit and qualification wherever found, either in original Democrats or in good conservative gentlemen of other par ties unitiug themselves with the party. In conclusion, that names are Sion in sir, permit me to say, nothing; they are as fleet ing as the morning dew, while principle, underlie the foundation of nil things and are as lasting as the eternal hills, without which governments totter and tumble to pieces like ropes of sand, which I fear i too true a picture of onr own present vernment. Yours Truly, go Justice. For the Middlttoicn Transcript. Mr. Editor :—As Peaches and Peaclt Baskets are almost the only topics of versation iu all circles, now-a-days, and as all are anxious in regard to the shipment ot Peaches aud the return of Baskets, but some make no effort on their part for the security of either, but depend solely upon their neighbors to secure transit of fruit and return of their empties, and are con stantly annoying those who look after their own matters; to all such I would say that the Association meets at Dover, on Tues day next, the 21st inst. let them step for ward to the captaiu's office and take a tic ket for Dover, on that day, and I will guarantee that they will hear tho Basket b usines ventilated to their heart's content And if they do not see proper to aid the Association by uniting themselves with it, they can enjoy a scat in the lobby and ob tain iuch information as they desire with out paying for it. Peach Grower. : mi A Chicago despatch reports that the Ute Indians, hitherto friendly, threaten war, and that Colorao, the chief who went to Washington and received medals from Andrew Johnson, has been killed by his braves for advising peace. The Utes are said to have 10,060 fighting men. Many stock farmers along tlie Kansas Pacific route are migrating, fearing hostilities. There appears to have been intense ex Tuesday at tho Capitoline grounds, New York, at tho match game of base ball between the Atlantics and the citeinent on Red Stockings. The former won in 8 to 7. There were 10,000 persons present. The funeral of Mr. Diekens took place on Tuesday in London. It was of the plainest possible character. He was bur ied in the " Poets' oorner," Westminster Abbey. Thousands of persons visited the spot during the day. IiOCAL AND STATE AFFAIRS.

D. Henry II. Appleton, Edward C. Fenimore, and John C. Corbit, were appointed said committee, who, after due deliberation, reported as follows: Whereas, Every plan and agreement this Asso ciation has heretofore Adopted, to insure the re turn of empty boskets and crates, lias not only proved to have been a signal failure, entailing great and serious loss to the growers of fruit sent to the Philadelphia market, and which grievance and gross injustice has become yearly more and more aggravated. Be it therefore Resolved, That we, the members of " The Fruit («rowers Association of Delaware and Maryland," do, now, hereby pledge selves, each to the other, that hereafter, we will, in every instance, hold our respective salesmen responsible for the return to each of 113 respective identical empty peach baskets aud crates, believing this to be the most effectual and simple method to remedy this great, and still growing evil, and for every empty basket or crate not re turned to us, the ow iy, thereof, by the 1st day of November, in each and every year hereafter, including the present year, we will hold our re spective salesmen responsible to pay to their spcctive employers 25 cents for each basket i 20 cents for each crate not so returned, as afore said. re nd The above report was, on motion of John Whit by, adopted unanimously, by the Association, and the secretary instructed to have tw o hundred copies of the resolution and report printed, und two copies thereof sent to each member of the Association, and report its doings thereon, to the next meeting.
