All white men of whatever political opinions or party con nections are cordially and earnestly invited to at tend; and we ask the thiuking portion of our community to turn out, not as Democrats, not ai Republicans, but as white men, anxious to know their duty to their country, and knowing it dare maintain it regardloss of all political pre judice or party connections. Come one, come all? and hear your rights, your duties, and your principles in the coming contest, as expounded by your gellant young Senator. OdessA, Oct. 15, 1870. Many Voters. THE BLACK MAN. The introduction of the blaok raoe into America had its origin in the necessities of labor and the passion of cupidity, not loss than in the abject and savage condi tion ia which the white man found the negro in his own native Africa. Before Ibe African waa enslaved by tho whito man, he was the victim of the most cruel fete at home. Petty kings of Dative tribes were perpetually engaged in war with oaoh other, and it was the practioe of these •arage chiefs to slay their captives in bat tle, or to sacrifice thousands of thorn at a time to add importance to their public fetes. Rut when tho slavo trade turned these captives into a sourco of profit to Uwir savage conquerors, thero was no more sacrifice of priioners taken in batile, hot they were sold to the Spaniards, the Portuguese, the Dutch and the English, as slaves. Spain, Portugal, and their in sular dependencies, and tho English and Dutch eolonies in America, were thus peopled with thoso barbarians from the African coast. It has been said that the Maytower, whioh landed Capt. Standieh and hie company at Plymouth Rook, made heir very next voyage to Jamestown; Va. with a cargo of slaves. That they were bonofitted by thoir transfer to America, does not admit of a doubt. They taken from a land of heathenism and grosB moral darkness, and brought to the light of oivilixation and Christianity, and their physical, mental, and moral condition, ov arjway improved. Here, in his normal aaadition at social and politioal subordina tion to the white man, from the first set tlement of the eolonies until now, the negro has thriven and multiplied, until tho raoe ia these United States now num bers between four and fivo millions. Here they have been more happy and more prosperous, than any equal number of their race have ever been in any other quarter of the world. Their labor was highly benefioial to tho development of this oountry. They have assisted our oeators, for two centuries, in felling the forest and in tilling tho soil, to the mutual races. Rut, a ohange has oome over this order of things. After violent agitation for more than tiou, culminating in civil war, tho negro has been aet free; and from a serf, he has beoome a citizen, clothed with all the rights aud immunities of citizenship, and forced from his condition of dependence upon the white man, into a position where he is compelled to think and aet and shift for himself, and is furoed into a position of ri valry and antagonism towards the white raoe, a position whioh he is unfitted by nature to maintain. Time will demon ttrate (kit truth. The negro hag reached the culminating point in his development, and he will dow gravitate downward, from thia time henceforth. Let it not be sup posed that this remark is attributable to any prejudice towards tho race, on our part. On the contrary, wo have ever aheriahed the most kiudly feeliugs towards them in their sphere, and desire only their welfare. But, wo do not think their wel fare will be subserved by their enfran ohisemont, and by the course of life on whioh they are now likely to enter. Hith erto the antagonism of the whito raoe to wards the negroea has been held in ubey aaoa, by a sense of their dependence and subordinate position. But, now that the law has attempted to place them upon an equal footing with the whites, and they themselves ora disposed to assert that equality, encouraged to do so by design ing white men for their own selfish purpo ses, that antagonism, called into play by the causes above alluded to, will speedily manifest itself, and make itself felt, more were an benefit of both a genera and more, until the promised blessings of freedom and enfranchisement, to the gro raoe, like the apples of Sodom, will turn to ashes upon their lips. Nature has sot bounds between the white man and the black, which cannot be pasted with impu nity, The white man cannot overcome bis natural repugnanee to the negro, there fbre it is unwise in our lawgivers to enact laws having a tendency to bring tho two races upon a plane of equality, and there fore into antagonism. Equals they cannot be, for nature has made them so dissimi lar that it it doing groat violence to her laws to attempt to make any approaches towards equality. This Is as true in a political and social sense as it is in a nat ural sense. The two races cannot live peaceably and harmoniously together, ex cept tho black raco be in a stato of subor dination. The 14th and 15th amendments havo placed it in a stato of insubordina tion, a state whioh will develop more and more tho natural incongruity and antipa thy between tho races, and their irrecon cilable incompatibility. The Republi cans, as well as the Democrats, will ac knowledge this truth, in timo. For tho present, an unworthy partisanship has im pelled tho Republican party to take the uegro by tho hand, and to court his sup port in a party sonso. This evil will ulti mately oure itself. The blacks will not contiuue to support the Republican party without a share of the offices. To accede to thoir demands would cause such wide spread defection in the Republican party, as to give the Democrats an oasy viotory over them. It is needless to say that the Demooratio party, reinvested with political power, would speedily restore this gov ernment to what it was intonded to be by its founders—a government for white men nd would brush away as cobwebs, by a mero resolution of Congress, those frauds which are known as the 14th and 15th amendments, and all the "enforcement'' and " rooonBtruction" acts which have polluted our statute-bookB under the deba sing rule of Radicalism. The 13th amend ment will stand. No one desires to see the negro a slave again, not even his for mer master upon the plantations of the South. Wo would protect him in all his rights of person and property, under the law, but political and social equality with the white man, he cannot havo. If tho negro is not satisfied with this state of things, let him betake himself to his own native clime, Liboria, or to Hayti, where he can enjoy the largest liberty and grati fy his highest aspirations without interfe rence from tho white man. Is there any hardship in this ? No, it is the dictate of reason and of common sense, that ho should go to that clime where the author of his being intended he should live, and tp which ho is adapted by nature. No white man has part or lot in the govern ment of Liberia or of Hayti. They are tha governments of the black man, and the soil as well as the institutions are his. If he sighs for perfect freedom, let him go there, where his highest aspirations may be gratified. We would even assist him to go, as an act of simple justice to the descendants of those who were brought, against their will, from Afrioa here. There, a genial clime and the spontaneous fruits of the earth combine to render life ne more easy and more agreeable to him. There, no winter's cold will chill him, and no wintry season has to be provided for, but the earth yields her increase all the year round, and he has but to stretch forth his hand and pluck and eat. There let him go. If he will stay here, it must be in a position of subordination to tho whito race, and it cannot be otherwise. He himself will come to see this in time. Tho Republicans will solicit the votes of the negroes to keep their party in power, but they will not share with them tho spoils of office, or treat them otherwise thaD menials and inferiors. The negroes will see this, and will withdraw their support from the Radicals, and will set up in a political way for themselves. But they will ultimately find how futile are all their efforts in that direction. Disappointment and discontent will ensue, if not actual strife between the races. as But let us cast a veil over this view of our subject—"suf ficient unto the day is tho evil thereof.'* But such reflections will obtrude them selves upon all thoughtful minds, and not to he ignored. In tho event of of races—a thing not. the least improbable —the blacks would he forced from the country, hut their oxodus would bo through blood. Muoh more preferablo would it be in peace and amity. The very corner-stone of a Republio is tho virtue and intelligence of the people. How preposterous it is, then, to olothe igDorant and semibarbarous race with the elective franchise, most of whom cannot read a word upon the ticket they vote and arc too stupid to understand what they are voting for. It iB without a parallel in the history of the world, and is enough to bring the blush of shame to the cheeks of all who cherish a proper pride for their country. It could only have been achiev ed by the wildest spirit of faction and the most reckless partizanship. Returning reason, it is to be hoped, will corret this partisan insanity, and present onr country to the world again " clothed and in her right mind." But this "consummation are a war an most devoutly to bo wishod," awaits the return of the Democratic party to power. It will yet be the pleasure and the pride of that party to -cleanse the Augean stable of Radieal corruption and misrule, and to restore our government to its pristine pu rity. May the good genius of our Repub lic speed tho day. Fkdbral Interferbncb in Elections. —Things are coming to a pretty pass, in this country, when tho minions of Federal power maroh an armed aoldiery to the polls, to interfere in the elections. This was done by U. S. Marshal Gregory, in Phildelphia on Tuosday. A detachment of United States Marines, with fixed bay onets and guns loaded with ball oartridge, took possession of the Fifth Ward polls, and tho eleotion progressed under the surveillanoo of these Federal troops. What more dastardly usurpation oould Louis Napoleon have been guilty of, (when hold ing his elections under tho power of his bayonots,) than this? This act of milita ry interferenoo waB in direct confliot with the 4th article of the Constitution of the United States, hut in accordance with what is called a law of Congress, end known as tho' infamous Enforcement Aot. Here is Federal authority not only in oonfliot with municipal and state authority, hut actual ly in oonfliot with itself J No wonder tho people were greatly exoited. A crowd surrounded the Marines, and there was danger that they would be seized and dis armed. As they marched through the streets, on their return to their quarters, they were hooted by the excited populaoo. Tho day of the general olection in this State is tho " Tuesday noxt after the first Monday in November" which this year falls on the 8th of November. This time was fixed by an amendment to tho consti tution adoptod in the year 1855. The fall mooting of tho Peninsular Fruit Growers' Association will be held in the Stato House, Dover, on Tuosday, the 18th inst. at 2 o'clock. It is »aid that Messrs. Stockley, Bcs wiek, Hobson and Cooper, have withdrawn from the independent ticket in KeDt. LOCAL AND STATE AFFAIRS. Fine Potatoes.—M r. Andrew Eliason, of St. Georges Hundred, brought us a large sweet po tato, on Saturday last, which weighed four lbs. The produet of one vine weighed 7j lbs. They were of the Nansemond variety, and were obtain ed from Henry Clayton, Esq. W. O. Green, residing near Warwick, Md. brought to this office on Thursday, a sweet potato of the White Spanish variety, weighing 3 lbs. We published, last week, an account from the Denton Union, of a sweet potato which weighed > pounds, with a challenge to every county the peninsula to beat it. New Castle county has beaten it. Mr. Gideon E. Rothwell, of Ap poquinimink Hundred, sent to this office, on Tuesday, a sweet potAto which weighed six lbs. lacking three ounces. From ono vine the pro duct weighed 9 lbs. 2 ounces. Larger Still. —A correspondent at Kennedy ville, Kent county, Md. informs us that he recent ly visited the neighborhood of Wye Mills, Queen Anne's county, Md. where Mr. J. C. Hopkins re siding on the farm of the late Jacob Richardson, has raised ten sweet potatoes, this season, which weigh 60 lbs. an average of 6 lbs. apiece. Queen Annes is, thus far, ahead. More Burglars Tooiæ Discovirbd. —On Satur day evening last, while Mr. R. H. Foster, the Town Commissioners, was repairing a bridge, a few rods west of the Railroad, he discovered under the bridge, securely wrapped up in paper, the following tools supposed to have been depos ited there by burglars at the time of their entry of the Bank :—Two small saws, one a key-hole saw ; two cold-chisels ; two drills ; 24 wedges one steel crowbar ; one large copper hammer ; the remnants of a horse-blanket, and two pairs of new gum shoes. Sometime after the burglary Mr. John McLcary discovered a bag containing a number of such implements. It bad been hid den under a pile of railroad ties, near bis house The burglars evidently came well provided with tools, and they no doubt intended to clean the Bank out. But a lady in the next house happen ing to bear a noise, lit a lamp, aud thus saved the money safe from their depredations. St. Ann's. —Subscriptions for a fund to erect new Church edifice in Middletown, are about to be solicited by those clothed with authority from the Church to do so.

Georges and Appoquinimink Hundreds, formed in pro cession at Odessa, and marched to Middletown, accompanied by the Townsend Brass Band, and also the Odessa Brass Band, in beautiful wagons. A cavalcade of horsemen represented each State in the Union, the horses, wagons, and carriages wereall decorated with nags, evergreens, wreaths of flowers and hickory poles, and presented a ry handsome and Imposing Appearance. As the procession moved through our streets they rent the air with their shouts. Many banners were carried in procession bearing appropriate mot toes, such as "The Fifteenth Amendment a Fraund." " White Men Shall Rule America.' "Down with the Enforcement Act." "Dela ware good for 3000 Democratic Majority." Stand was tastefully decorated with flag flowers, ond over the front was an arch, green letters, with these words " Tht Consti tution of our Fathers," and under-neatb, " Down with the 14th and 15th Amendments." À largo delegation came dowu from Wilmington, with representatives from Elkton, Newark, New Cas tle, Delaware City, St. Georges. Odessa, Port Penn, Townsend, Blackbird ana Smyrna, and all the neighboring towns in Maryland. About 2, p. u. the meeting was called to order by Dr. Swithin Chandler, who introduced Hon. James A. Bayard. Mr. Bayard spoke over an hour, reviewing the policy of the Radical party in conferring the elective franchise upon tho ne gro race, presenting in a logical and conclusive manner, the evils which must ensue unless suck a policy is reversed. He demonstrated the itP capacity of the negro for self government, point ing to Jamaica, and to «very other place where the experiment has been tried, as proof that the negro is sure to deteriorate, unless in contact with white The mud S He has been only a slave and a subordinate, from the records or memorials of the earliest civilization, down to the present hour, and from his very nature he can never be any thing else. At the close of his speech a committee of one from each Hundred was appointed to draft reso lutions expressive of the sense of the meeting. Hon. B. T.

That in the nominees for county offices and the Legislature, we recognize citizens of unim peachable character and intelligence, whose ful fillment of private and public trusts heretofore, guarantees their honest and capable performance of the duties to which we trust they will be called by the cittzens of this county. 5. That in the presence of a body of armed troops at the polls of a regular, peaceful and or derly election, in the city of Philadelphia, we re cognize alarming evidence of the lawless violence, and intimidation of oq$ people, which have be come favorite agencies with the Radical party in their schemes to retain political power, and that it becomes the freemen of this country to de nounce »8 we do now, and defy such unlawful and miserable attempts to control elections by military force. 6. That we earnestly urge upon all white who value the perpetuity of our institutions, aud who believe ip the supremacy of their own race to unite with us in our endeavors to defeat the lawless and revolutionary attempts of the radical party to africanize tho political power of country. lion. Thomas F. Bayard was then introduced to the audience. He pointed out tho encroach ments of Congress upon the co-ordinate branches of the government, and dwelt upon the alarming fact that it hpd trodden under foot the checks and balances of the Constitution, disregarding the prerogatives of the Executive, and aiming to re duce the Judiciary to a state of party subservien cy. Mr. Bayard spoke with earnestness and emphasis upon these abuses of a Radical Con gress, and was listened to throughout by his au ditors, atnoug whom were many Republicans, with respectful attention. Coi. James Ponder, candidate for govenor, being present, was then introduced to the audi ence. Aftern respectful salutation lie said as the audience hud listened to scverul able speech es, and the hour was growing late, they would not expect a speech from him. He then bowed and retired. Mr. J.

Perhaps no one mecii so universally re quired by everybody as a cathartic, any before ly adopted Into ry country and among classes, as this mild but efficient purgative Pill. The obvious rea is, that It is a more re liable and far more effec tual romedy than any other. Thoso who havo tried it, know that it cured them ; those who have not, know that it cures their neighbors and IViends, and all know that what it does once it does always — that it never fails through any fault or ncglcctof its composition. Wc have thousands upon thou sands or certificates of their remarkable cures of tho following complaints, but such cures are known in every neighborhood, and wo need not publish them. Adapted to all ages and conditions in all climates; containing neither calomel or any deleterious drug, they may be taken with safety by anybody. Their sugar coating pre9ervos them ever frosh and makes them pleasant to take, while being purely vegetable no harm can arise from thoir use in any quantity. They operate by their powerful influence on tho internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it into healthy action — remove the obstructions of the stomach, bowels, livor, and other organs of tho body, restoring their irregular action to health, aud by correcting, wherever they exist, such derange ments as aro the first origin of disease. Minute directions are given iu tho wrapper on the box, for tho following complaints, wliicn these Pilla rapidly cure: — For ]l.ripp|Mia or Indigestion, Edstle««. *m«, Languor and Iso«« of Appetite, they should be tukeu moderately to stimulate tho stom ach and restore its healthy tone and action. its various symp toms, fllllou« IleäiUcbe, Sick IKewdache, Jnnmllce or Citroen Mickne«*, fllllou« Colic and IBillou« Fever«, they should be ju diciously taken for each caso, to correct the diseased action or remove tho obstructions which cause it. For Dysentery or Dinrrhoen, but one mild dose is generally required. For RhsuniatUm, «ont, Gravel, Palpi tation of the Heart, Pain in the Hide, Pack ami Loin«, they should be continuously taken, as roquired, to change tho diseased action of the system. With such change those complaints disappear. eine in nut « raal> , in For Ej Ivrr Complaint pay and Dropsical SwHIian they should be taken in largo and froquent doses to pro* dune the effect of a drastic purge. For Sapprsuion a large dose should be taken as it produces the desired effect by sympathy. As a Dinner Pill, take one or two Pilla to pro* mote digestion and relievo the stomach. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach bowels into healthy action, restores the appetite, aud invigorates tho system. Hence it is often ad vantageous whore no serious derangement exists. One who feels tolorably well, often finds that a dose of these Pills makes him feel decidedly better, from their cleansing and renovating effect on the diges tive apparatus. DJI. J . C.
