A largs flag bearing the names of John P. Cochras, for Governor, and James Williams, for Congress, was stretched across Main street M onday evening. This, we belive, is among the .first of th« campaign. on C*n|ratalation Meellaf. On Tuesday evening a number of personal and political friends of John P.

They were accompanied by the Diamond State Band, which on arrival at the house took their poeition in front of the piazza and flayed several select tunes. After which H. A. Nowland. Esq., was called for and came forward and, addressing Mr. Cochran, ex expressed the sincere and hearty congratulations of his Democratic friends and neighbors in bis having been selected'as their chosen leader and 8 andard bearer in the approaching campaign, and their ardent hopes for bis triumphant elec tion. Mr. N.'s remarks most respectful attention, and, at their close the hand again struck up a lively and inspiring air. Charles ßcasten, Esq., was then called for and responded in a few pleasant remarks expressed his own personal gratification and pleasure at the selection of hjs friend Mr. Cochran, as the Gub ernatorial candidate of the Democrucy. Mr. Cochrun then stepped forward and ex pressed his thanks for the honor that had been extendePlo him bj his party friends, saying, that, though he had not asked nor sought the nomination at their hands, since they bad seen proper to confer it upon him he should feel him self bound to do all in his power to secure the success of the Democratic ticket, and should lie be elected he would promise, as far as in him lay, to be the Governor, not of a party, hut of the whole people of the State, and to conserve the in terests of every class of his fellow citizens. Mr. Cochran retire \ amid loud cheering, and, after more music by the hand, E. Reynolds was called for, and coming forward, thanked the audience for the compliment intended to he conferred upon him, and said that though he was hut little ac customed to public speaking he felt that the oc casion would justify him in expressing the «in gratifieation he felt at the successful nomi nation of our distinguished fellow citizen by the great Democratic party of Delaware to he their leader and standard hearer in the approaching campaign. He said '' it is a mark of no ordina ry favor and distinction to be selected by a large body of people to he their chosen leader and the candidate for their suffrages for the position of their ruler, manifesting as it does the confidence felt in the ability and integrity of the whom their choice is fixed. As such you can not fail to regard it as a high compliment at the hands of your fellow citizens, and all the more gratifying in that you did not seek the nomina tion from your party, your name having been used without your consent and without your knowledge. We congratulate ourselves on having secured a candidate so worthy of the suf frage of the people."

No 80 —John R Prise, Ewen Roberts, John H. Green • No. 71—Wm. J. Lea, Miles T. Jones, Samuel Townseud then presented the following preamble and resolutions, which were unanimously adopted : Whereas, After the Republican Party enfranchised the negroes it was the opinion of the white Democrats of Appoquiuimiuk hundred that the vute of said hundred would be about nine hundred votes, and fearing that said number of votes could not be taken at one place in the hours prescribed by the election law of this State, and more especially if Republican inter fereuce at the polls was to be followed up as was at the lust election, the white poo ple of said hundred, but more especially the white Demoerats, petitioned to the Legislature of this State to make two elec tion districts of said hundred with voting place in each district. The Legis lature complied with the request of the petitioners and made two districts, North Appoquinimink, the voting place at the village of Townsend,and South Appoquini tuiiik, voting place at Black Bird, in the Before the election, and be fore any vote had been taken in the said separate districts, the Democratic white men of Appoquinimink met in the lower district at Black Bird and appointed delegates to the State and County Conven tions with the understanding that it would he the last time, as that full the voting would be done in the separate districts prescribed by the law. This present year, 1874, tho Chairman of the Couuty Kxecu tive Committee notified the different hun dreds of this county to select or elect, on the 8th day of August, ten delegates from each hundred, five to the State Convention and five to the County Convention, except Wilmington hundred, and that she appoint ten delegates to the State and ton to the ty Conventions. Brandywine ap pointed in two places, North and South Brandywine; Christiana in two places, North nnd South Christiana; Appoquini miuk met in North Appoquinimink and South Appoquinimink and appointed the number requested by said Chairman of the County Executive Committee. Wil ihiugtou appointed iu ten »operate dis tricts After it was arranged in Appoquini mink, at a meeting at Black Bird on the first day of August, to apportion and select said delegates in the two above named districts, certain discontented persons in the huudrod met at Black Bird on the 8th day of August and assumed the right to appoint delegates for not only South Ap poquinimink but also for North Appoquini mink hundred : and these bogus delegates to tho State Convention went to Dover and after a hearing before the Convention were turned out of Northern Appoquini mink and her regularly elected delegates by ballot admitted ; but South Appoquini miuk hundred's delegates were superseded by the three bogus delegates, one from the North and two from the South. And Whereas, In the opinion of the Democratic white men of North and South Appoquinimink, there has been outside interference with the right of tho white Demoerats of said districts, and we this day give notice, if any interference should be attempted at tho County Convention, to be held at New Castle ou next Satur day, the 5th of September, to debar or reject the delegates from N rth Appoquini mink hundred — Richard F. Hanson, David C. Rose and James C. Wilson, or tho delegates from South Appoquinimink hundred, John W. Parvis and Jerry Prior—we will call meetings in said dis tricts and retaliate to the utmost extent of our ability, let the cousequences be what they may ; for a down-trodden pco wliose rights aro trampled upno and them selves insulted, are justified under the laws of retaliation in dealing the heaviest possible blows to our oppressors, aud there fore, from this elec , viz : Resolved, That we are in favor of nom inating the county ticket by ballot in the different election districts in this county, and that we make this last appeal to the good sense of the County Executive Com mittee to call off these bogus interférer» in Appoqunimink hundred with the rights of the Democratic white men there to organize in their separate districts aud nominate their equitable share of delegates or hundred officers as apportioned harmon iously by the two said districts. Resolved , That the State Convention, in admitting the North Appoquinimink delegates to the Stare Convention under stood only those elected in the North District by ballot, »ettled her lights to send delegates to the State Conventions, for tho words used were, the delegates elected from North Appoquinimink hun dred. Therefore, if North Appoquin* mink hundred has the right, South Ap poquinimink has the same right, if proper *y mTtsttgatea , ■ Mod *r tw ciBv felled to do her justice after admitting there was a North Appoquinimiok hundred, we make this appeal to the good sense of the County Executive Committee to recommend the admission of the only true delegates of Appoquinimiok hundred elected and select ed in North and South Appoquinimiok hundreds on the 8th day of August, the day recommended by the Chairman of the said County Executive Committee, Wil liam Herbert. Resolved, That the Democratic white men of this distriot hold an election at this place on Thursday, the 10th of September, between the hours of 2 and 5, p. in. nominate a candidate for Inspector, a can didate for Hoad Commissioner, and a can didate for Assessor ; also, that we request the Democratic white men of South Ap poquiuimiuk hundred to hold an eleotion ou the same day at Black Bird and nomi nate their candidates for Inspector and Road Commissioner,%nd do such other acts as will satisfactorily strengthen both districts. Ob motion of Cyrus Tatman, Resolved , That the Democratic voters of tho Northern election District of Ap poquinimink hundred urc opposed to any man from another district or hundred interfering with the political rights of this voting district That the above resolutions bo publish ed iu the Daily Gazette and Middletown Transcript Oats ti , to J.
