"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

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

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

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,

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

IiOCAL AND STATE AFFAIRS.
Extracts from the Minutes of li The Fruit Grower's
Association of Delaware and Marylandat its
Annual Meeting, held at the Hotel of William T.
Chance, in the village of Odessa, Junellth. 3870.
as follows, viz : «
On motion of D. Corbit, a committee of five
members were appointed by the President, II
Iiitock, to report to this meeting some plan by
which this Association can remedy the great
grievance we the members continue to suffer by
the non-return of our empty peach baskets and
crates, sent with fruit to the Philadelphia market,,
whereupon Daniel Corbit, David Stewart, M. 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.

Valuable Cow.—Mr. Wm. Brady, of this vi

years old, from which was made, in one week
sixteen pounds of butter. Mr. Brady challenges
Delaware or Maryland to beat it if they can. This
cow was brought in from the West by Messrs.
McCracken & McDowell, and was sol'd to Mr.
Brady, at McCracken's sale, last winter, for the*
sum of $160. lie would not, now, take $300 for
her. If there is a cow in Delaware or Maryland,
that can heat this yield of butter, the public
would like to know it.

Death of IYilliam Gilmoiie Simms.—
A despatch from Charleston
the death of William Gilmore Simms, the
Southern poet and novelist,
vent occurred on Saturday,
was born in Charleston, April 17, 180(1,
and was consequently about sixty-four
years of age. From early life he closely
applied himself to literary pursuits. At
eighteen years of age he commenced the
study of law, was married at twenty, was
admitted to the bar at twenty-two, and
shortly after became editor of the Charles
ton City Gazette,
tudes, including heavy pecuniary loss and
the death of his wife and father, he moved
to Massachusetts, where, in 1833, he
wrote the longest aud best of his imagina
tive poems: " Atalantis, a Story of the
Sea." He subsequently spent much time
in New York, and finally returned to
South Carolina. In the meantime he
wrote many poems and novels, chiefly ill
ustrative of Southern and Western
lutionary scenes and backwoods life,
mong his novels may he mentioned, The
"Cassique of tho Kiawali," "Guy Rivers,"
Richard Hurdis," " Beauchampe" and
The Scout." Historical sketches
latterly his favorite literary pastime.

works, which did not sustain his previous
reputation. He suffered many losses and
