The County Convention.
£_ The Democratic County Convention will assemble in the Court House at New Cas tie to-day for the purpose of nominating candidates for the office of Levy Court and both houses of the State Legislature, and to tranact such other business pertaining to the party politics of this county as shall come before it. There will, doubtless, be questions of great importance to the interests of the party brought before this meeting, among which will stand prominent the alteration of the rules of the party to permit of the selection of onr candidates for the Legis lature and Levy Court by the direct vote of the people of the different hundreds in stead of by delegates chosen to a conven tion for the purpose as has been the eus Jftiddletoum transcript. EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDIeKTOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 5, 1874. DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. FOR GOVERNOR, JOHN P. COCHRAN, of New Castle. FOR REPRESENTATIVE IN CONGRESS, JAMES WILLIAMS, of Kent. FOR SHERIFF, WILLIAM H. LAMBSON. FOR CORONER, RICHARD GROVES. Democratic County Convention. The delegates elect of the different Hundreds of New Castle county are hereby notified to at tend a Convention to be held at the Court House, in the town of New Castle, on SATURDAY, the 5th day of September next, 1874, at 1 o'clock, P. M., for the purpose of nominating Representa tives to the Legislature and Levy Court, and to take such other action in relation to the ap proaching canvass as shall be deemed advisable. JOHN P. COCHRAN, Chairman. Aug. 26th 1874. County Mass Meeting. A Grand Mass Meeting of the Democratic citi zens of New Castle County will be held in New Castle on Saturday, (to-day,) immediately on the close of the Delegate Convention to ratify the nomination of our Gubernatorial and Con gressional candidates and the county ticket that shall be nominated on that day. By order of the Executive Committee of New Castle County. tem heretofore. the Desiring to see the merits and demerits of this vexed question thoroughly discuss ed before the assembling of the conven tien, we, last summer, extended an invi tation to all who take an interest in such matters to give expression to their views, on both sides of the question, through our columns. Our object was to have the matter brought fairly before the people that they might understand it and that the question might be settled, if possible, before the as sembling ef the convention. Our invitation was accepted and several letters from dif ferent parties, chiefly from Messrs. Wm. Dean and Samuel Townsend, appeared in our columns, the former opposing and the latter strongly advocating the proposed change as spoken of above. There seems to be a very strong feeling in the county in favor of the ballot system. It is, doubtless, the best, if not the only, way to settle the disputes that havo arisen in some of the Hundreds in reference to the choice of delegates. It is, perhaps, after all, the fairest manner in which to select the candidates, for then the people who will be called upon to vote for the candidates at the election will have a fair opportunity given them to express their voioe in the selection of those candidates But whether it be decided to nominate by convention, as heretofore, or to throw the nominations back to the hundreds and let the people select their candidates for themselves, we sincerely hope that no ill feeling will be permitted to disturb the harmony that should exist in our ranks. The manner of the selection of the candi dates is a matter of but small importance compared with the success of the princi ples of good government as avowed by the Democratic party. Our prospects for suc cess ars more brilliant at the proseat time than they have been before for a loBg time. All the candidates thus far chosen by tbs Democrats are men of the strictest integ rity and of superior ability and capncity for the offices for which they are nominat ed, and nothing but harmony and earnest working is required at the hands of the Democracy to ssoure their triumphant election in November next. h the is the a Personalities in Politios. Some of the Radical journal, of this State, unable to advance argumenta auffi ciently atrong for tbeir purpose« against tbe principles and policies of the Démo cratie party, indulge in most diagasting attempts to defame the pereenal eharacter of the honorable end reepeetable gentle who have been plaeed at tbe bead of onr tiokot. Neither Mr. Coohran nor Mr. Williame eongbt or aeked for the po •ition to which their frieode eeek to ele vate them, and though it wae to ho ex pected that little-minded, mein spirited ed of to a men would trump up every imaginable of fence that these gentlemen ever commit ted, such as petty, sordid men like to re member, in their envy and jealousy of the more ueble and exalted, we did not expeet to sec publishers of newspapers who boast of their "progress" in moral roform and enlightenment, loading their columns with such miserable trash. One of those papers, which claimed to be the first to give the people information which every mao, woman and child in the State, of any intelligence whatever, had already, acknowledged that the integrity and ability of Mr. Coshran could not be denied, but it brought " railing accusa tion" against him in regard to certain mat ters of opinion It is about time that sen sible journalists should cease to prate about "disloyalty" duriug the war, and to charge men who did not agree with them in political matters during that unhappy time, with "treason " The issues that divided the people at that timo arc done away with and other questions are before ns now. There are entirely too many men in the Democratic party to-day who fought in the Federal army and took part on that side during the war to justify the wholesale charges of disunionism that are constantly brought against the Democrat ic party, and after all they are but ques tions of opinion which have become "dead issues" long ago. The battles of the day sufficient to engago the attention of all, without recurrence to things of the past. But the chief fault is to be found with those papers which, either as editorials or correspondence, publish venomous attacks the private character of the candidates, trumping up and bringing to light little things that occurred—if they ever occurred nt all 7 many years ag °' *" d t have n ° b T ing whatever upon the ability or capacity of the candidates for the offieo to which their friends seek to elect them, communications as that which appeared in the Republican on Tuesday over the sig nature of " McCool " should not be per mitted to appear in any paper. Let us fight the politics of our opponents on eith cr side but let the personal character and of private life of the various candidates alono. Not a Democratic paper in the State, so far as we know, has made a single attack upou the private character and life the of Dr. Jump or Mr. Lolland and we trust they will not, and we are also glad to be able to say that the leading Republican in- journal of the State has also refrained from this petty business, Come friends, let us catch the spirit of the age and conduct the warfare on the more noble principle of fighting the armies of our opponents and lotting pri vatc property alone, are OD Such h As Goes Wilmington, So Goes the State. This was the cry of the Radicals before the election. Now that the " eruel war is over," however, and, notwithstanding the " colored troops fought nobly " the Democrats gained the battle, they (the Republicans) have found out that the fight was " only on ' local matters' " and doesn't indicate, in any degree, how it will be next full. Oh, no ! it don't indi cate anything, of course, but when tho third day of November comes we will see what is indicated by this «lection. A change from 830 majority ono way to a majority of 30 the other lookB a little sus picious about the way things will go whether it indicates anythiug or not. Tue War of Races. —Is not tho un happy relations of the races in the South, whence intelligence of a bitter feud and frequent fatal collisions are often received, a verification of the position taken by Dr. G. Troupe Maxwell, of New Castle, and published in a letter to the Savannah Morning News, last Summer (1873) which was republished in the Transcript ? In that letter Dr. Maxwell asserts that in congruous races cannot live together in harmony and peace, upon terms of equali ty—when their interests are brought into competition—and he therefore declares that " The emancipation proclamation was a declaration of war between the races."

On Tuesday, it is now believed, ho was defeated in his attempt to obtain a re-election. Wo hope that further reports will confirm the earlier ones, for.ludge Poland has been already too long in Congress, and has already dona too much mischief there. There is a law, conceived aud passed by him last winter, which bears the somewhat obnox ious title of "Poland's Gag law." We do not know that ho owes his late discom fiture to that fact, but wo believe, that as he wrought so earnestly for defeut in at tempting to muzzle the press, he has got his reward in the contemptuous repudia tion of his constcstants. There wasnovor a more iniquitous act plaocd upon the statute books of the nation than Poland's Gag law, and every decent man in the country, jealous to maintain liberty of speech und freedom of the printing press, will rejoice to learn that the author of such an infamous act shall hereafter bo debarred from opportunity to devise and execute other evil legislation— N. Y. World. In consequence of rumors affecting the stability of the enterprise which have ob tained currency through certain influences, it is appropriate to furnish some assur ance to the general public that The Al dine —the Art Journal of America—is not in any embarrassment whatever. As a commercial undertaking, it has been from the start a remarkable success, and is, to-day, more prosperous than it has ever been before. The Aldine is the property of the Al dine Company, the organization of which, last month, brought to the enterpriso an additional paid-up capital of $200,000. The stock is in the hands ef a number of tbe wealthiest men of New York, and the Compnny doeB not owe a dollar outside of its capital stock and the ordinary not due accounts of the month. The brain which originated still controls and dircots the production of each issuo, and it is absolutely certain that Mr. James Sutton, as president of an organi zation possessing every facility, and back ed with ample capital, will be able to go on faster aud surer to tbe fullest develop ment of an idea, tbe outlines of which elicited the warmest enthusiasm of his countrymen.

Hall, Esq , whose nomination for Governor was warmly advocatnd by a large number of the delegates in the con vention, had he been nominated would have made a strong poll in this county where he has always lived and is best knowu. Mr. Charles 15. Lore, whose name was prominently before the convention for Representative in Congress, would also have received the cordial Democrats of Kent. The friends of these gentlemen will doubtless feel disappointed that they were notsuccesful in securing their nominations, but disappointment in politics, as in everything else, is unavoidable, and is but the experience of men in all parties. Let all, however, forget disappointment and cheerfully acquiesce in the behests of the party, now that the convention has acted. — Delawarean. pport of the Items of General News Tho King of the Sandwich Islauds, in proroguing the Hawaiuu Assembly, spoke strongly in favor of a treaty of reciprocity with the United States, and suid that no effort should be wanting on his part to secure the desired result He bus appoint ed two commissioners to collect and for ward to Philadelphia, for the Centennial Exposition, specimens of the arts, manu factures und products of the soil of the Hawaiian kingdom. Tho Cincinnati Enquirer says that du ring the last few weeks some of the lead ing Western democratic politicians who have been sojourning at the White Sulphur Springs have been talking about the best available candidate for the next presidency, and that the preponderance of sentiment seemed to regard Gov.
