He a in wot fair lait are à the R. of EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editob. * ■idbletows, ml! SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 31, 1874. V Let Us Have Feaoe. An unfortunate controversy baa recent ly sprung up among aoma of our Demo cratic friends about matters and questions whi.v'1) iV V*s wholly unnecessary to revive. We are satisfied that all these gentlemen havo tho same earnest desire to etc the Démocratie party successful at tbs next •lection, end the controversy that bas been awakened among them bad its commence ment and is carried on in no spirit of hos tility to any portion of the party, bat is tbe result and consequence of the antago niste position assumed by Demoerats to •ach other in the lest Presidential cam paign. Wo do most sincerely regret this disputing among friends. The «objecte about which they era conteadiag ere "dead There is. net • true Democrat in issues.' Delaware who doe* not feel that the Gree ley movsmeat was an error, hut it osnnet be recalled, and all tbe recriminations which Democrats can hasp upon each oth er abont that unfortunate affair can do no good, and may de considerable barm. Did we pot knew, personally, all tbe gentle men whose articles we have published,eiid know them to be Democrats, faithful and true, who are ever ready to battle for the old party,we would feel obliged to decline their correspondence, but as it is we can only advise them te "be at peace among themselves. The campaign of next fall will be e sharp one, and we want all tbe Deineoralio forces in the field, and unless wa keep harmony iu the raaks and get all partias reconciled, we will have a tough tiaa of it. We muet la; aside, aud yield up some of our own particular and person al views aud wishea for tbe sake of the bis do a general good. The success of the Republican party would be a serious calamity to the people ef this Slate ; end this we say, not because we think the men that party would put iato office would ntst be good men,although the notions of mauy of the Federal office holders elected hy that party have been such an to cause distrust and fear on that account, but because of the false and ma licious notions that are entertained and practised by their leaders. When men have such egotistical ideas and grow so wise in their own conceits that they desire to change every existing law and custom in order to make them agree with f/jei'r ideas of propriety without regard to con sequences, they arc uufit to be trusted with power and authority. Should the Repub licans once get control of tho government of this State, there is not s law or institu tion that they would not, in tbeir absurd and wild ideas of progress, change, and under the name of reform they would com pletely revolutionize the whole State, and establish hero the ridiculoua seeialist no tions of New England fanaticism. Dem ocrats then should turn their weapons against tbit party and do all in tbeir pow er lo defeat them iu their thirat forpowar, instead of oarryiog on a sort of partisan warfara ausoog. thomselves. Come, gen tlemen, "let us hare peace" in our own household. For ourselves we nre determined to do nil we can to reconcile the past differences in tbe Democratic party, and thank most sincerely our good "friend in tbs Democ racy " from our old homestead, Newark, for bis kind words of commendation of our course and of eur bumble efforts in behalf of pcaoe in the family. Obituary. Philadelphia, sad in fact ths whole coun try, was sbocksd on Wednesday by the sBDonnssnsnt that Hon. James Thomp son, cx-Chicf Justice of tbs Supreme Court of Pennsylvania had suddenly fal len dead while in the prosecution of tbe duties of his profession as an attorney in the Supreme- Court room. He was en gaged in an argument in a case of tax ti tles, when he suddenly fell and almost in stantly expired. James Thompson was born in Middle sex, Butler county. Pa , Oct. 1, 1806. He received a geod education and after leaving school be entered a printing office for the purpose ef learning tbe business, but preferring tbe legal profession he stud ied lew and was adinittod to tbe bar in 1828. He was sleoted to the State Leg islature three times in suoeeuion (in 1832, 1333, 1834). During bis last term be was Speaker ef tbe Houbo. He was pre siding judge of the Distriot Court of Penn sylvania for six yosrs from 1839, and in 1345 bo was eleeted to Congiass whore be remained until 1851.

Mr. Editor ;—A writer in your paper of last week over ths signature of "Dem ocrats'' deals some hard blowa at the so called Straight-outs of Delaware, writer should exsreist a little mors charity. He admits that the Democrats at Balti more made s great mistake in nominating a life-long Republican for President, and in accepting a republican platform. Might wot tbe £t night-outa have fallen into a similar mistake in supporting as their can didate a life-long Democrat? Is it quite fair to t:• <t the first ss a mistake and the lait as a crime? All tnen and all parties are subject to mistakes, and whet) the sup porter* of Mr. Greeley tell ns they made à mistake, 1rs arc willing to believe them. But then they tell us wc ware bound by the action of the National Convention to vote for Mr. Greeley even if his nomina tion was a mistako. Tuere is where we differ. If the Convention had nominated Democrats for the office of President and Vice-President, and bed adapted a Demo cratic platform, then we agree that we ahould have hern bound by tbe acts of said Convention, however objectionable in other respeots tbe candidates and platform might have been. But what right had the Convention to go over to tbs Republican sarty both for candidates and a platform ? Suppose our State Convention, which will meet next summer, should nominate N. Smithers.Erq. for Governor and Hon. Jss. R. Lolland for Congress, are we bound to support them ? Would not a few mere Straight-outs spring up in Delawsro? Then if wc would not abide by tbs action of our State Convention in sush a case, why should we be bouDd by a National Convention? Whenever a convention goes over to tho enemy for candidates and a platform, it net only forfeits all claim to the respect of any member of its party, but its action deserves in our judg ment to bo treated with soorn and con The tempt. \Ve ore told by "Democrats" that lees than 500 Democrats in the whole State deemed it their policy to turn their bat teries upon tboso of their own household. Will the writer inform us how that was doue unless be iooludes Mr. Greeley in bis household? We plead guilty of tam ing our batteries upon Mr. Greeley as well as upon Gen. Grant. If any of our shot bit our friends it wss because they were iu bad company. Again, we are told that tbe Straight outs "lifted their fratricidal hands against those of their own household, bow? In what way? We voted every man on tbe so-called Democratic State nnd County ticket except the Greeley electors. Was that fratricide? Or did the fratri cide consist in tbe withholding of our votes from Mr. Greeley? If for tho latter, then Pennsylvania furnished over 100,000 fratricides. And where does our friend John P. Cochran stand, for "Democrats" informs us that he did not vote for Mr. Greeley. "He says lie adopted a middle course as safest because it was wisest." That is to say be would havo nothing to do with either Greeley or O'Conor. That might bave been tbe nispst. but it is diffi cult to understand when Democrats are left without a candidate bow they could siu by placing that uncorruptible Demo, crat, Chas. O'Conor, at the bead of tbeir ticket. There is another enigma which we can not unravel, and that is hew Mr. Cochran, who would not support Greeley, Bhould receive so much praise, tad we Straight outs, who would not support him, should get nothing but abuse. Wo seem to bv substantially in tbe same boat, at any rate we have never found fault with Mr. Cooh ran for bis aourse. If Mr. Cochran should be nominated for Governor be will bave no warmer backers than tho Straight-outs, and if any of them are eleeted to tbe con vention be will most likely find friends there too. HU political record is without a blot. His qualifications are ample, and if Sleeted, would de both the office and the State a credit. But Mr. Cochran should beware of sycophants. Praise heaped upoa him by a writer who is try ing to drive 400 or 500 Democrats into opposition should bo distrusted. Let him pray to be delivered from such friands. Tbe Straight-outs of Delaware made an effort te get those who would not vote for Greeley to vote for O'Conor. They were qnito content if they would vote the Slate and County ticket without tbe electors. All they over aimed at, or desired- was to prevent Democrats from committing tbe folly of voting for Mr. Greeley, our friends that they could not life-long Republican, and accept a Repub lican pltttform, without going over body and breeches to the Republican party We told them that that was the only road we knew of to reaob the Republican oanip, but we did not insist upon tbeir voting for O'Conor. We wero quite satisfied with the course taken by Mr. Cochran and by yourself, Mr. Editor. A word as to the present situation. The of this State is adrift at ship will be upon the in a We ank We told vote for a Democratic party this time. The rocks unless great care is used. Some thing should bo dsns to sava her at an early day or the State will pass into the bands of tbe Radicals and negroes. Let the Democracy before the spring passes away call a State Convention aud undo the mischief they did' two years ago. Ohio and other States found they had got off the track, and they bad honesty and senra enough to get baok. Let the Democracy of Delawaro do so and ws will be • unit •gain. An honest effort was made to ac complish this very thing s year age, but yeu know Mr. Editor how wa were met and treated st Dover. Tbo writer of tbe article over the sig nature of "Democrats" onght to be asham ed of himself for raking up that stale lie "that the leaders of the 8trsight-outs had been bought with u price, believe it himself, nor oan hs find a man in ths State, of either party, that believes it. And ha would hardly make the obtrge »rar his «wn Signatar«. M*. Editoh;—W hen I wrote my first eommnnieetien iu reference to sur friend J, P. Cochran, Esq., it wat after you had ' brought him forward ox a candidate for » I lle does not 8TRAianT-OUT. publio polit ion, and after he bad had time to decline the aaine, which he did not do. Therefore, when a man allowa hia to be used in connection with publio posi tions, hia public acts arc, and ahould be, •abject to honorable public criticism on tho part of those who ar « expected to as sist to place such persons in the desired positions. To this, I base tried to ad here, and have tried to avoid anything of a personal character in my eown'unica tions. Your criticisms and answers to tbsm have been of the same order, for which I am under obligations to you. I do not believe that honorable controversies ever injure an honest cause or that a man of pure and honorable motives will ever suffer from the truth being told in regard to him. In all controversies I try to state facts. As you have not pointed out any errors, I presume I have adhered to them in this case, which has been my object. I wish I could say as much for your Wil mington correspondent "Democrats, is generally time wasted to reply to anon ymous writers, and I should not in this case, oDly for its persoual allusions, kuowiag who "Ce nocrats" represents I have not lost anything thereby, as, he be who he may, he is eithsr ignorant of what bs writes, or is a willful falsifier Hia last communication referred to me, and he no doubt intended it as a personal insult to myself. He intimated that the leaders of the Louisville Convention were bought with Gold, and that I was ambitious to be Goveruor of Delaware ; he either does not know me, or if he does, when he wrctc the foregoing he knew that he was writing that which was false. No such persons as he ean ever do me an injury among honorable men who know me, and the fewer advocates of this chsrnoter Mr. Cochran has tho better, it will bo for bis chances of success no matter how pure the man or bis such friends be would drag down any enterprise no matter how worthy. Respectfully, Ws. Dean. name wai of the ish the til It Not bia in principles may bo. as "Democrats" ai A few appears to For the Transcript. I was much pleased Mr. Editor with your article in your issue of the 17tb iust., in reply to Mr. Dean's inquiries in relation to Mr. J. P. Cochran's orthodoxy in connection with the Greeley movement (politically) in 1872 which I supposed would be satisfactory to Mr. Dean and we ■h'uld hear no more from him on that subject. Not to : for lo, behold he oomes again in another long letter in your issue of the 24th ; in which he begins by giving his idea of what constitutes a strait out, then acting as though he was fearful he might say something which might hurt Billy, ho prefaces by protesting his high regard for Mr. Cochran (personally,) but immediately finds fault with Mr. Coch ran's political position in '72 and virtually says if Mr. Cochran will publicly ac knowledge his political backsliding* and do penance for the same, get fairly and squarely on tfie straightout platform, then if nominated by tho Democracy of Dela ware for Governor, no man will give him a heartier support than he, Mr. Dean. Now, Mr. Editor, is it fair for Mr. Dean to reqeire every man iu tbe State to bring his political measure to him to be measured by his political Bushel to know whether or not be is a Democrat of tbe true faith? I think not. Noir, Mr Edi tor, after what you have said in relation ts the conduct of Mr. Cochran politically in 1872, I do not deem it necessary for me to say one word. We know, and all who know him, that (although he did not adopt the kill-or-cure policy of Mr. Dean) the course he did adapt wa» wise and con sisteut as the sequel has proven. Now, Mr Editor, allow me te say io conclusion (us I do not wish to take up much spaoe in your valuable paper) that I am very much surprised that Mr. Dean, or any other man, should call in question Mr. Cochran's political integrity to tbe party and principles which lie has so long and sbly advocated. J 3 erhaps Mr Dean has some sinister motive in view. I will not say with the Wilmington "Democrats,'' he thinks he is the man. Bnt, to use one of Mr. Dean's own faverito expressions, when we see the hair around the den, we are very apt to think ther's a coon in there. Manor. A Niwauk, Del., Jan. 28, 1874. Mr. Reynolds: —I had intended to say a word or so about your sentiments, as ex pressed iu tbs Transcript of the 17th inrt. but business prevented. I esnnot allow tho opportunity to slip by, wholly, with out endorsing them a» sound and sensible. Wa have no time nor strength to waste in petty disputes with each other, about ques tions which, as you said, "cannot be set tled," and ought to bs purmitted to be buried with "tho dead past tbs contrary, eultivato good feeling, that harmony may prevail. Thns will we pre sent to the common enemy—the black and tan mongrel crew—a solid front, and vic tory will undoubtedly crowu our effort«. Thera is no good reason why we may not " move upOD the enemies' works" in an unbroken phalanx, and I am glad to see your praiseworthy effort to nip in the bud aay eooteatisns iu ths ranks of the Dem ocracy. The dignified and able course marked oat by you hai brought the t kanscript iato deserved prominence and plaoed it in the "fore frout" of Democratic journals io this State. With best wishes for ths success and prosperity of the Transcript, I am very truly your ftieod in the bonds of a true Democracy.
