th. part edy nho act our ne to to to EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. HIDDUtrOWI, OBI.. SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 30th 1874. The Civil Rights Bill. 'tie conauumiatiuu uf Yankee mnlicious ncos and ill »UI toward the people of the South was reached on Saturday morning last when the United States Senate deliber ately passed the ''Supplementary Civil Bights bill" introduced into that body by the late Chas. Sumner. That the men who voted for that measure were influenc ed, in even tho alighteat degree, by a heart-felt desire to benefit the negro race or the aountry tor which they professed ly legislate, no wan, woman or child, white or colored, in America will for a moment believe, and we cannot thiuk thero is an individual in all the country so utter ly Jost to all sense of shame or decency, as to advocate or sanction the dogmas intend ed to he forced upon the people by that kill. It be on ed Not coûtent with ha ving conferred upon tbo negro«»-, without waiting for them to beeame habituated to their suddenly ac quired freedom much less to understand the nature and value of sufferage, all the political rights wltieh are enjoyed by the whites, this hill seeks to place them upon a c impiété social equality with the whites, and to force the two races into close and intimate association in schools, hotels, theatres, public conveyances of all kinds, and in fact in every public institution. The negroes themselves, that is the bet ter and more respectable portion of them, object as much to the provisions of this bill as we do. They never have asked, sought er wanted social equality with the whites. They greatly prefer to be left to thein aclves. They would a thousand times aatber have their own separate schools and churches, and do not ask or want to have their children attend public institutions of learning with the children of the whites. But by the provisions of this bill the peo ple of the States are not even allowed the privilege of establishing by law separate schools in which to educate the children of tho two races, but all must attend the same schools. The renson for this as stated by that wretched apology for a senator, Boulwdl of Mass., is that a more thorough and complete equality can be Vaught in the schools than olaewhcro. It ennuot be that even the politicians who have disgraced the records of the American Senate with this disgusting en actment really approved of its require ments. It lias been but a few weeks since one of the leading Republican journals of this Stato declared most emphatically that the Republicans of Delaware were most un deniably opposed to "mixed schools" or '•social equality," and denounced all in timations that they could possibly favor such measures as base aud vile slanders orig inated by their opponents for political pur poses. We believe that the editors of that pa per, when they wroto the article referred to, expressed their true views and senti ments in rogard to this matter. We do not believe there is a single white man in America in favor of it, and tbc men who voted for its passage and those who have advocated it, had no idea that it could possibly effect them or their children, but they knew the degredation must fall upon the children of the poor aud of the labor ing classes, of the North and upon all classes at the South. Heretofore in their enactments in behalf of the negro, the majority in-Congress bad the slight, though mean and unprincipled, excuses of being ioflunced by a desire te secure the political alliance of the negroes in order to keep themselves in power, but in the passage of this last Act they bave uut even that excuse, low and mean as it is, fur their action. No one of them is so devoid of common senso as not te know that the passage of this bill most and nocessarily will drive from their ranks large numbers of their already few white voters, especially in the old slav* states. They could, then, bava bien governed by but one desire, sud that was to thus much more vent their spleen upon and punish tha prostrate people of the South, by com pelling, tho once proud planter and his children to commingle in social eqnality with his former slaves. Such is the character of the men who sit in the seats once occupied by states man and patriots, and assume to make laws for the governance of ths American peupla. Influenced by no loftier motives than those ef the bitterest seetional hate, or meanest partisensbip, the; spend the time in enacting taws fur the degredation of their own reoo in order to wroak a petty vengeance upon a portion of tbo citizens of their eotuuioo country already sufficiently Tb.t the bill will pan the lower Home of Congren there in scarcely room to dtrabt. The ouly hope of the people will then be in the President. Will he riee above party feeling asd dictation and by tafmiiig hi» unction to thi* malicious bill prohibit it from becoming a !%vr and thus lasting gratitadt of m th. people? If be does not and the "Sup ptamaotary Civil Rights Bill" becomes a part of the Ian of the land, the only rem edy will be for tho people to take the law making pensr from the hands of the mon nho have so reeklessly abased it, and give it to men nho nill be influenced by justice and patriotism and not by sectional aaalioe and partisanship, and repeal this act at once. At the approaching State election the citizens of Delaware will be called upon to decide for themselves how far the provi sions of this hill snail be enforced, within our limits. To prevent its practical fulfilment here ne must sec to it that the law making and law enforcing power shall remain in the hands of men who will use their authority to protect our citizens and their children from the condition, so utterly repugnant to their feeling, to which this bill seeks to reduce them. in in be of " of is Items of General News. Suspknsion of a Norfolk (Va .) Bank. —A special to tli 0 Richmond Enquirer from Norfolk, dated the 2Gth inst., says: The First National Bank of this city sus pended this morning. At a meeting of the directors this afternoon it was ascer tained that the bank had hopelessly failed. It is stated on the street that tho deposi tors will only realize about twenty-five cents on tlia dollar. Several merchants here will suffer by this loas, but none will be forced to suspend business. The Arkansas House of Representatives on Saturday, by a vote of 47 to U. adopt ed resolutions declaring that Senators Dorsey and Clayton obtained their seats by bribery aud corruption, and asking the United States Senato, if they do not resign within ten days, to inquire into the circum stances of their election aud expel them. The House also passed a jniut resolution for a final adjournment on Thursday next. About forty crusaders were arrested again at Pittsburg, Pa., Saturday, and coufined in the central police Btation, charged with obstructing tho sidewalks They were released upon giving bail for a hearing on Monday. Great excitement prevailed, and largo crowds gathered ubout the police station. The wanton say they are determined to continue tltoir work, notwithstanding the action of the authori ties. it so or I Cheap.—T he most fashionable of Sara toga cottages rent for $3,000 for the sea son of three months, others being $2,500, others $2,000, and so on down to $500. Who wouldn't have so cheap an article? Hon. David B Melltsh, member of the House of Representatives from New York city, who was taken to the Government Asylum for insane persons some two weeks since, died in that institution oa Saturday afternoon. It is reported that two fast day trains will soon be put on the road between Phil adelphia and Pittsburg, which will stop ouly at Harrisburg and Altooua, and run at the rate of forty-five miles an hour. Bishop Clark, of Rhode Island, has is sued a pastoral letter urging that all the churches in his diocese take up collections for the relief of sufferers by the Southern inundations. Governor Seymour, of New York, au thorizes the Utica Observer to announce that he is out of tho race for Governor, und "refuses to be a candidate for any of fice in the gift of tho people." James R. Randall, author of "Mary land, My Maryland," has written a poem entitled "Alexandrine," the refrain of which is of the Tennyson "Alexandrovna" order. The President's Long Branch cottage this season will bo "the Executive man sion by brevet." A new "drag" is being built to receive guests at the depot. Ex-Governor Rufus B. Bullock, of Georgia, the carpet-bagger, that abscond ed after depleting the treasury, has turned up again in New York. (Communicated. ) A Masonic Occasion. The Masonic fraternity of this place have en joyed the opportunity of meeting a veteran of their order, whose name is almost a Masonic password itself, viz. Dr. Rob Morris, who we learn has given nearly thirty years to the litera ture and oral instruction of the craft. IIis travels amongst lodges of Europe, Asia and Af rica (Egypt) culminating in the establishment of a Masonic lodge in the city of Jerusalem, are among the memorable events of Masonic history. On Monday und Tuesday evenings this well known craftsman addressed his brethren in their commodious hall, very much to their satisfac tion. His theme, "Freemasonry in the Holy Land," was enlived by recitations of his own poems and anecdotes, serious and humorous, of his large experience among lodges, the world over. Warm complimentary resolutions were adopted by the lodge, expressing its sense of his merit and of their appreciation of his labors.— His return here, next Friday, for the delivery of bis Pyramid Lecture will be hailed, we doubt not, by a manifestation of popular interest. For the Transcript. Middletown, May 26th., 1874. Mr. Editor :—Some time since, I saw an arti cle in your paper, speaking of Mr. Rico's ice cream saloon and the handsome mannor in which he had fitted it up for the accommodation of Indies. We have been there since and find all you say correct. There is one thing, however, that mars somewhat the pleasure of a visit to his saloon, and that is the number of boys and young men sitting around on the steps ; to ...v, and 1 presume to most ladies, this is very annoy ing. I mention this fact hoping in the future it may be corrected.

He has just discovered that last year, at a pic-nic given by the students Middletown Academy, some of these students imbibed freely, got drunk, kc., and advises them to stay home this year, and let the «rusaders take care ef them. We do not admire greatly a paper that will allow such items to appear in its columns even if it were true, but as this is en tirely false we think much less of it. The boy who corresponds for the E.

Dear Transcript :— The cose o ' Lynam vs. the P. W. k B. R. R., which was pending when my last was written, concluded by non-suiting the plaintiff. It is only repeating a common remark, to say, that this decision of tho court it very unpopulnr. Nor would it be exaggeration to add that the dis satisfaction docs not simply declare itself in an acquiescent disapproval of, and disagreement with the theory of the Court; for there is more than that. Indeed, there seems to be a ground swell of discontent, if not of ill-feeling and in dignation, « in a demand Without q Court, or tin and its agree in similar cases, 1 confess to being who regard the result of that trial one-sided, and deficient in the element of equity. Does the fact that si party " contributed " it may be in the s mm/est possible degree —to the sum total of neglect which eventuated in a catastroph that proved disastrous to herself, release from all culpability or responsibility to the other neglectful " contributors ' to the sad, and it may he, ruinous result? Is it just , upon the single ground of "contributory neglect," to throw such a ease out of Court, and to refuse the consideration, hv a jury, of the question of the relative or comparative fauttiness qf i ll the parties concernedt I think not. Why, the very idea and essence of a " contribution " is that there is multiplicity , or duality at least, of sources or causes to produce a result. The deri vation of the word (con and tribuo) confines its meaning to associated action, working coujointly —literally giving together; and if these parties together, conjointly, brought about this disaster, consequences, because you "contributed" some what to the production of the accident," and to the other. 11 you may go Scot free, notwithstand ing you wem grossly neglectful and by your neg ligence you have rendered the woman miserable for life, because she did not use unusual precau tion by stopping aud pricking her ears to listen for your approach !" (îruuting that there was tual neglect, ought there not to be reciprocal suffering, or damages? At least, soit seems to , and such, in brief, are some of my reasons for the opiniun that a jury ought to have been permitted to weigh the evidence of relative guilt, and proportion the amount of consequential dam ages. The next nost exciting case during this term, that of Miss Meredith v». P. W. k B. R. R., for damages lor injuries sustained in the terrible catustraphe ijit Ellerslie last year. d Gordon, as before, ropre hi rll ill, doubtless, express itself for legislative action. uesttouing the uprightness of the legal soundness of their conclusion nent with the current of decisions of those by say to must suffer all the evil Messrs. Bi sented the It R. and Messrs. L latter of Philadelphia, were counsel for the plain tiff. The trial was racy chiefly in consequence of sharp pas.- ages between the contending law yers, which were, at times, more personal than respectful, and more pointed than courteous.— Such things are in had taste. The jury award ed to Miss Mîredith §2,000, a much smaller sum, I am told thin the It. It. Company were willing to her. And 1 here :easicn to say that, from what 1 have learned of tlleir dealings with the the company have been governed d Swain,the have gh at any t take Iferers from that accident by a spirit oNiherality.
