upon in ple the way and I of EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDLETOWN « DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 18, 1874. DEMOCRATIC NOM MATIONS. FOR SU.ltRUE, WILLIAM H. LAMBSON. FOR CORONER, RICHARD GROVES. Hon. T. F. Bayard for President. the f Y. Delaware's gifted young Senator has been fre quently and favorably mentioned by Democratic journal» in various portions of the Union as a most Mtiiabfecandidate for the office of Vice President of the United States under the leader ship of Hon. Allen G. Thurman, of Ohio, for President ; and the names of Thurman and Bayard have been heralded abroad as the most proper and acceptable candidates for the two highest offices, within the gift of the people, at the next Presidential election. But the Cecil Democrat , of Saturday last, reiterating the senti ments proclaimed by the New York World on a previous occasion, places at the bead of its edi torial column the name of Hon T. F. Bayard as its first choice for the Presidency in 1876. It cannot fail to be a matter of intense gratifi cation to every true Delawarean to of one of their favorite citizens thus so freely and laudingly used by the people of the larger states in this high connection. Hitherto in the choice of Presidential candidates Delaware has at ed H8 the name i been overlooked. Nat for the want of capacity anil talent among her sons, for her McLane, Clayton and Bayards have ever attuined to the foremost rank Ui their country's greatness, but bee. and territory, being small in populati she was regarded us not having sufficient politi cal strength and influence to justify a party in selecting a candidate from among her citizens.— Now, however, when policy is rapidly giving away to principle, and men are beginning to feel that honesty and capability availability, the Democracy all over the land are turning their eyes to Delaware's Senator of the most emineot, but, also, one of H. far preferable to not only the moat incorrupt aud incorruptible statesmen of the country. A It is the proud boast of Delaware that her sons have ever been faithful to .their country in her hours of peril, and when sho most needed their aid. They look back, with pardonable pride, upon her past record, and rejoice that she was the first State to ratify the constitution under which the nation lias grown and prosper ed in a degree unprecedented, and unparalleled, in the annuls of the world. But their chief and greatest cause for self-gratulation is that, in all the time that has elapsed since that constitution became the organic law of the land, never, by word or deed, has Delaware, as a State, broken one single jot or tittle of that law. Not a single act, or sentence, disgraces her statute book which even her bitterest and most implacable violation of the enemies can construe into strict letter of the constitution. Occupying, exalted and enviable position therefore, such among her sister Stntes, it is but just and meet that the candidate for the chief magistracy in the »'s history should he of the natii centennial yi a native born citizen of the State which has thus been ever faithful aud true to her trust. The Stolen Child. The little child of Mr. C. K Ross, of Philadel phia, which residence stolen from near his father's the first of this mouth, has not yet his abductors captured, been recovered although the father has made use of every means in his power to obtain some clue to the where abouts of bis boy. The distress and agony of mind of those parents can well be imagined. It seems rather singular that a crime of this nature should have been perpetrated in a large city in open daylight und that the perpetrators should be-all le to throw such a mystery around it u9 to baffle the efforts of tha detectives to Many hundreds of crimes, such as ravel it. murder or robbery, have beeu traced to their source when the evidence was not half so strong as it is Ln this case: Two children were at first afterward allowed to taken. One of these ■»'turn, and this one was old enough to give aud did give an account of the occurrence, a descrip tion of the tl»e direction they went, yet with all these facts the matter is still a mystery, and the detectives are unable to " obtaiD the »lightest clue abductors." All this is to the utter disgrace of those detectives; either they are wholly incom petent for their positions, or they are unworthy of them. We will not accuse them of collusion , of their horse and wagon and the with the kidnappers, but it is more than likely that they ward, and are thus endeavoring to make money •at of the distress of the bereaved father. In the meantime the authorities look idly on and make no effort to discover and puuish the perpetrators of this great crime. Assuredly all must see that the public is directly affected by and interested in this affair. Had the child been murdered the mayor of Philadelphia would long ere this have issued a proclamation offering a reward for the capture of the murderers. Yet here is a crime far more distressing than murder, and hy which society is, if possible, more deeply affected, and the authorities take ao part, and the agonized parents are left to fight the battle atone. The people ought to take this matter in hand and force the mayor, aye and, it need be, the Governor too, to offer a reward suf ficiently large to induce the capture of the offend ers aud bring them to justice. The New York World and other leading journals have been mak ing some strong efforts to stir up the people to a sense of the importance and magnitude of this offence, but these appeals should not be confined to the few ; every paper should lend its aid to unearth this crime, and to crush such acts in their incipiencj. waiting for the offer of a larger re The Commercial is In a terrible way about the Radical Convention. It is "down on" ifr.Pick •b for culling it » toon. It thinks it was ■ gnat mistake ; Hint their guecem it greatly en dangered thereby ; and that the Republican par ty b not ttrong enough to aflurd tuch error». We rather think It it about right in that lut as narllon. Mr. Pickel.' little mittake won't hurt it much. But U b natural to try to Dad tome to lay the blame on, and Mr. Pickels will do Ipljp* tfoM JW anybody else. St An Reform. — The Radicals base their claims to the suffrages of the people of Delaware upon their many and oft-repeated promises of State reform. Among other things they are con stantly howling about Democratic extravagance in administering the government and are nlways telling how economical they would be if the peo ple would only give them n chance to manage the state a little while. Like the citizens of every other state the people of Delaware have no way of judging the future except by the past, and they can only judge what the Republicans I could do from what they have done. The Re publicans of Delaware are not than their political brethren of other states. As they do elsewhere so would the}' do here. The following estimate of the cost of some of the state governments which have been long in the hands of these " Reformers " will give some idea of the kind of economy that they usually exer cise : Mr. cuss T. this and ing whit better by the the no The Providence Journal estimates that the State Goverement of Rhode Island costs each in habitant $1.90 a year. The State expenses of the little Commonwealth are $432,658. In Ver mont the State Government costs $343.822 a year, or $1.04 a head, in New Hampshire $152,000 a year or 47 cents a head, and in Dela ware only $31,333, Island is evidently extravagant, for though its legislators work for a dollar a day, somebody f rets the money. The highest State salary in Delaware is that of the Chancellor, $2,500.— N. Y. Sun. 25 cents a head. Rhode The people may rest assured that the cost of sus taining the state government will not long remain at 25 cents a head if they ever do so foolish a thing as to let the Radical party get into power. They will reform things for them with a ven geance. The kind of Legislators the people of Dela ware may expect to have are very aptly describ ed by the Denton (Md.) American Union (Rep.) H8 follows : " The price of a New Hampshire legislator appears, in accordance with tne times, low ; ilroad lobbyist being reported as saying for $25, and that he i lie to that he had hired had $U)0 with which to get four more. South Carolina legislators New Hampshire still holds up a little, latter, however, there hie, while in South Carolina the majority are pur chasable all the while." down to $5 a piece—so In the sal but few who Evidently the few who are saleable in the N. H. Legislature are the few Republicans who are there, as in South Carjlina they are all Republi cans. as Chicago was threatened W'itb another big fire last Tuesday. A fire broke out in n small frame house about 4 o'clock that afternoon and contin itil three o'clock ued to burn with great fury next morning, w hen it was gotten under coutrol. A pretty large district was burned over many hundreds of families thrown out. The post office building, the First Baptist Church, (u splendid building) and several other fine public buildings were destroyed. The loss, in proper ty, is estimated at from four to five millions of dollars. d Wm. L. Dennis, Esq., a prominent Philadel phia lawyer, died very suddenly at Newport, R.

Ma. Editor. —I should not have bothered you with anything more ou the nomination by bal lot subject, only there was another communica tion in your lust paper on the same subject. It seemed to hold out the idea that it w to nominate members of the Legislature and Levy Court by ballot throughout the county ticket, ns sheriff and coroner. What ignorant nonsense. There are nine mctnbeis of the Legis lature and six Levy Court commissioners, and they are apportioned from the different hundreds; and there has been heretofore five delegates ap pointed from each Hundred to nominate these . In the place of these five appointed dele gates from said hundreds, it is proposed that the voters of each hundred select the candidate by ballot that will come from their hundred. It is presumed that there will be more brains em ployed iu the selection, for, in addition to all others, the brains of those five delegates can be included. And, further, it is not a fact that at the late county meeting, held the 6th of June, a resolu tion was passed to ask the next Legislature to lay the State off in single election districts, and give each district the right to elect their member of the Legislature and Levy Court. Therefore, if the next Legislature passes such a law, does not common sense presume that each of said districts will have to nominate its candidate? As the late county meeting, hy resolution, admitted that the Democratic party would have se to nominnte by single districts the next two years, that is, if the Legislature this winter passes said bill, is it not a charitable conclusion that they have sense enough now ? Then away with such nonsensical trash as that Newark letter. He must have a poor opinion of the Democratic voters when he asserts that they can be bought for a drink of whiskey and retained. Every drinks ought t© resent such an insult, if that fel lows' name is intended one ough of bo before the public. Samuel Townsend. Townsend, July 13, 1874. Ravages by Grasshoppers. —The following ex tract from a letter recently received by a gentle man in this town from a friend "on the ground," will give some idea of the ravages of the grass hoppers in the West: in the ao it a to in Worthington, Minn., July 8, 1874. Doubtless you have seen in the papers ac counts of the grasshopper scourge through cer tain sections of the West. This section of coun try is in the centre of this pest. Yon who have never seen such scourges cannot imagine what they are. Never, until I the workings of the grasshopper, could I imag ine the effert of the terrible plague of locusts sent upon the Egyptians. I never saw crops more promising and beautiful than we had throughout this country two weeks ago ; but, now, all is destroyed or nearly so, and many of the people are in a state of great want. The grasshoppers can be seen at midday flying by the million, looking like a snow storm. In the middle of the afternoon they light upon the fields of grain, and soon, in a few hours, all is destroyed. The fields of wheat appear as brown as the soil, and perfect clouds are about you as you walk or drive through it. This is a new country, and the people depend largely upon their crops. Last year all was destroyed, and this year the Bame result follows. Business is 18 months, and what this people will do God only knows. Yours, k c., C. S. D. and experienced killed for 12 Four More Victims or the Fatal Kerorenr.— A horrible accident occurred about four miles west of Monroeville, Va., last week.

Mr. Largen was severely burned about the head, neck and breast, and his three children, aged four,six and ght years respective!;, who were standing by his side, were so terribly burned that they all died in a few hours afterwards.

NOMINATION BY BALLOT. met ed law the car If Middlktown, July 14th, 1874. Mr. Editor : In your issue of the 11th inst., Mr. Wm. Dean and Mr. Samuel Townsend dis cuss the question of the mode of nominating can didates for the Legislature and Levy Court, Mr. T. also undertakes to give, for the benefit of young Democrats, the history of nominations in this county ; but as his history is not very clear, and not altogether correct, I will undertake to state what " 1 know about nominations." Mr. T. states that some years after 1838 the Democratic party changed the mode of nominat ing candidates for the Legislature and Levy Court, and that the Whig party, afterward, adopted the same mode. Now the facts are, that the change from County Conventions to nominations by direct vote in each Hundred, was made by the Democrats at the spring meet ing, at Delaware City, in 1850; the Whigs had made their nominations for Sheriff and Coroner, before, and 1 nd Levy Court, also, by by direct vote, for y certain for Legisl&t the same mode, so that instead of the Whigs fol lowing the example of the Democrats, the latter followed the Whigs. Under the new mode the Democratic ticket was nominated in the summer of 1851), and was elected, not because the manner of nomination gave us a better ticket than those run in '44, '46 and '48, which were all defeated, ( we elected the Sheriff in '48,) but because there was a split in the Whig party, caused hy the temperance men, and the further defection of others of the party who were offended by the course of Mr. J.M. Clay ton in regard to the Federal appointments for this State. In 1852 the ticket w nated in the same manner. Pencadcr Hundred nominated David Caulk for the Legislature, lie was very objectionable to many persons, and scratched from the ticket, and in many cases no other name was put in the place of Caulk's. This action, under the election law of that time, caused that " branch " of the ticket to be thrown out; in consequence of which we not only lost Caulk, but lost several other members of the Legislature, so that the Whigs had a majority, and at the ensuing session elected the U. S. Senator. The Democrats were very much chagrined; although they had u clear majority, and secured the Electoral vote, really, for the first time, for the Democratic candidates, yet they had thrown away the Legislature, and an U. S. Senator. It ing simply quite again i. it, was charged that this result to the manner of nomination ; that so objection able a roan as Caulk could not have been nomi nated in a Couuty Convention ; therefore at the spring meeting the system of nominating candinutcs for the Leg islature, etc., by County Conventions was adop ted without dissent, and the ticket 1854, a resolution to return to s so notni ted. One would infer; from Mr. T.'s state not made until '56, ment that the ret and that it was then made to punish him; but the foregoing are the facts. Furthermore, Mr. strong advocate for the return, a fact which he doubtless well remembers. In 1856 disputes arose in Christiana and Appoquioitnink as to candidates, and incidentally, as to the inode of nomination, when it was very clearly decided, both bv the Convention and the County meeting, that tile rule of the party was, " that the body that elected, was the body that shall nominate." So the rule was settled, (it was afterwards embodied with other rules) and has thus stood for twenty years. Although an effort was made, some years since, to change the rules, and a committee appointed to consider the mat ter, yet the Chairman of the committee who was favorable to the change, finding, probably, that the change was not desired by the party, never called bis committee together, and the subject died a quiet death. Because the rules i respects have been departed from, more i ter of form than in matter of substance, Mr. T. SKggcsts that they bf no longer regarded in any respect—upon the good old principle, " that two wrongs make a right the only time when any principle of the rnles was violated, was in 1804, when the party neglected to nominate candi dates for Sherili and Coroner according to the rules : and the County Convention afterwards made theinomination. The rules were changed in principle, at the last County Convention, by the admission of ten instead of five delegates from NY il tningtou ; but the change wns made regularly, the Convention having an undoubted right to make it. As io the campaign of 1858, Mr. Townsend hns had his account of his move so often, that it bus become matter of history ; however, it is not to be supposed that any Dem ocrat wishes to deprive him of any hoiwrs \\ç may have gained in that campnign, or pluck his laurels from his brow. So much for the histor} . Much has been said about white men being de prived of their rights under these rules, but is this the case? Has any the delegates ever violated their trust? Have not our tickets been respectable? But thefcc ques tions were so well met by Mr. Dean in your last issue, that it is useless for me to say any more about them. However, it was apparent hy the proceedings of the last County meeting, that a very respectuble number of Democrats favored a change of the mode of nominating candidates for the Legislature, etc., and it is very proper that the sense of the people should be taken on the subject ; if they elect, or instruct their delegates to the County Convention to make such ebunge, it of course should be made; due provision be ing made, at the same time, for the appointment of Judges to hold such nominating elections ; for the certifying of returns, and for the determina tion of contested nominations. The Convention should then adjourn, and let the ticket be made under the new rules, when, although many Democrats might disapprove, yet none would re bel. Provision, also, should be made for future changes of the rules; for if the County Conven tions are abolished where will be the authority to change the rules ? Persons not acquainted with the politics of this county, might wonder that a man who is such a stickler for the rights of the majority, as Mr. Townsend is, would openly threaten to defeat the ticket nominated by the regularly ascertained majority, because the party would not depart from its rules, at his bidding ; or, that the man who makes such threats could have any stand ing in the party ; but the Democrats of this couuty know tbut Mr. T. means no harm, and that this old bug-a-boo of an Independent White Man s Democratic Party is as gentle as a sucking dove, and " has not enough blood in his liver to clog the foot of a flea." Mr. Editor. In your invitation to the discus sion of this question of nominations, you reques ted your correspondents not to be personal, but as Mr. T. in his communication, in a manner, "put himself upon his country,'' I am compell this article to trench upon matters personal to him, but I hope without offene intended. As Mr. T. has a horror of anony mous scribblers, he writer of this by calling The Democratic party, under both modes of nominating, have generally had respectable tickets, and I would suggest that the ticket itself is of more importance than the mode of nominating it. In the one way the nominations are under the control of the people of the County, in the other, under the coutrol of the people of the several Hundreds. In either case, this year , the people should be careful who they noroiuate to represent them at Dover. The term of U. S. Senator Bayard expires on the 4th of March, 1876, and the next Legislat elect him, or another, in his place, tenths of the Democrats, of this State, and a respectable number of Republicans ardently de sire his re-election cannot be gainsaid, while it would be a great gratification to the Democrats of the whole country, for Mr. Bayard's course in the Senate, in his earnest, sincere advocacy of all that is just, honest and pure, and his search ing and unsparing condemnation of all wrong and corruption have made him strong in the af fections of all people who hope for a pure and free government. Notwithstanding which, there are jealous men, ambitious men, in this State, who would use any means, not openly, but by dark ways, to defeat the reelection of Mr. Bay ard, and the will of an overwhelming majority of the people.

It is announced from Washington that the con troversy between the Post-office Department and leading railroad companies regarding the postal car service will probably result in a compromise, "but it is understood that, in no case will the demand of the companies be acceded to." A terrific storm occurred in Holt county, Mo., Friday evening. Hundreds of fruit trees uprooted, houses unroofed, and whole fields of corn prostrated. Citizens declare that they have not witnessed so heavy a rainfall in twenty years. Another dam disaster has occurred in Massa chusetts.
