Among the leading Democrats of White
(Olay Crock Hundred are many advocates
of the change of rules for governing the
Democratic party, particularly Rule 3,
requiring Delegates to be elected to a
nty Convention for the purpose of
nominal ing Legislature and Levy Court
c
j tickets, to one of .liront vote ot the people
of the Hundred. The subject under con
sideration was one ot sncii great impor
tune that it required isunsideruble uaueua
ing of the great moguls of the party in
our Hundred for the purpose of getting
up a set of Kemdulioue to lie offered at
our Hundred Meeting on Saturday last
Why, if the matter was of such great im
portance to the people of our Hundred,
not call a meeting for the purpose of pub
licly discussing the matter and not for a
few designing men to meet in caucus to
get up resolutions to bo foisted upon the
Hundred at any opportune momeut that
might suit the suborners without lotting
the object be made public? At our meet
ing on Saturday we hail a very fair turn
out, between SO and 90 voters preseut—
but what course did thoso great advocates
of the people pursue '! Why, they waited
until the business was nearly all transac
ted and a great majority of the voters had
left when they attempted to steal a inarch
the party by offering tbe resolutions at
a time when they supposed but few except
the frieuds of the resolutions were present
Now if it was the honest purpose »f these

Mogul and advocates of the people's
rights, who issued the call for the Hun
dred mooting, state in that call, among
the mauy other things to he done, that
the matter of change of rules governing
the Democratic party of New Castle C
ty would be brought forward for their ap
proval or disapproval Y But uo ! their
actions prove that they were not sincere or
that they were afraid to trust tlie matter
in the hands of the people, for after the
whole business of the meeting had beeu
transacted, or nearly so, the advocates of
the change, iu solid array, presented
themselves with their leader, who arose
with trembling limbs, and with quivering
lips read, in a feeble voice, tbe equally
feeble effort at a set of resolutions which
the people composing the Democratic
meeting of White Clay Crock Hundred
were not willing and did not allow a few
designing men to ram down their throats
as an expression of the sentiment of the
Demooracy of our Hundred The meet

arguments and long array of advocates of
the measure by a vota of pearly two to

party who pretended to be iu favor of the

A Medicine Chest in Miniature.
Mishler's Herb Bitters is not a beverage: but
a strictly medicinal preparation, more thorough
ly adapted to the wants of the general public
than any other in the market. Unlike ull other
so-called Remedies, it is prepared under the di
•t personal supervision of an eminent Physi
cian. S. B. Hartman, M D., the senior proprie
tor, is a regular graduate of the Jefferson Medi
cal College of Philadelphia, and a practicing
physician of large experience and extensive prac
tice. In such hands the public tnav rest assured
that Mishler's Herb Bitters is compounded in
•cordnnce with correct Pharmaceutical
principles, and that none but the choicest ingre
dients enter into its composition.
Its immense sale alone is conclusive proof that
it possesses merit of a high order. Merchants,
bankers, clergy
engaged in sedentary occupations, experience its
derful effects in relieving the depression
caused by severe mental labor: while the me
chanic, farmer and laborer find their bodily vig
or restored like magic by its use.
At this season of the year, when Diarrhœa,
Champs, Colics and kindred disordeis, caused by
eating unrips fruits, imprudent indulgence in cold
prevalent, a certain, speedy and
effectual remedy will be tound in Mishler's Herb
Bitters.
The depressing feeling of Languor or Debility,
incident to the "heated term," is at once remov
ed, the energies restored, and new life und vigor
imparted to the prostrated system, by its use.
In Dyspepsia,Liver Complaint* Affections of
the Kidneys it invariably works like a charm.
It is not a drastic purge nor heady stimulant,
violent in its operations; but it is simply a
tural remedy, thoroughly adapted to assist nature.
It supplies tone to the stomach, reinvigorates the
digestive organs, stimulates the secretions, and
promoting
every organ of the body to perform its allotted
work regularly and without interruption.
It is the unerring certainty of desired results
attendant on its use, coupled with the fact that
it is prepared by a physician of eminence in his
profession, that has rendered Mishler's Herb Bit
ters so popular, and as familiar as u household
word. Thousands of Mothers all over the land
have found it to he the safest and best remedy for
use in their families ; they not only give it with
the youngest child, but
find it the safest means
m health and freedom from
aches and paius incident to their sex.
Perfectly harmless, it is just the remedy needed
by them to enable Nature to perform her func
tions nai a rally , rey nia ri y , and without i neon rente
No Lady should hk without it if she would

cheerful spirits inseparable from sound health.
