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

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.

Sussex Co. Del., Jan. 27, 1874.
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

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.

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
