The Democratic Man Meeting.
The eountjr mass meeting held in
this place on Thursday, though not ao
large aa such meetinga usually are at
Middletown, was nevertheless a very
good sized meeting, not lacking in en
thusiaam, and held auywhere elaa it
wonld have been considered a large
affair. The people of Middletown,
however, are ao accustomed to seeing
immense crowds at our meetings that
they are not satisfied with any number
abort of thousands
The people from the sarronnding
country began to eome into town at an
early hour and at 11 o'clock the Bayard
club in carriage«, wagona and on borse
back headed by the Diamond Stata
Bnsi Band, of Middletown, inarched
out of town to meet delegations from
the neighboring towDs. About one
o'clock they returned, the line being
considerably swelled by a fine delega
tion from Odes««, accompanied by the
"Verdi" Band of tb»t town, who, with
their new instrumenta, pretty uniforms
and elegant band wagon, made 6 hand
some appearance ; also delegations from
St. Georges, Armstrong's and other
plaoea. Jo the meantime the delega
tion from Newark arrived and put his
horae up at the hotel
On the return the Middletown olub
headed the line, lead by a York wagon
decorated with flags drawn by four
handsome boraea and oecupied by
Messrs. Wm. R. and E. R Cochran;
following theaa were large pfifigh Jpg
one, handsomely trimmed widrewr
greens, and carrying flags, banners aud
transparencies covered with mottoes,
carriages, a number of yonng men on
horaebdhk and a party of Republican
representatives, with carpet-bags jn
their hands, and mounted on mules,
the names of Moaes, Bollock, Kellogg
aod others of like ilk inscribed on tbeir
hate Tbeae were a herd looking set
but were, probably, pretty fair repre
sentatives of those adventurers when
The
P
they first went to the South. At the
end of the line was a cannon, mounted
on a wagon bed—which every little
while was fired off making n deafening
noise. A rather dangerous accident
happened while this gun was being fir
ed on North B r oad st. In their er
citement and hurry the men who had it
in charge neglected to swab it out and
rammed the cartridge in while the gun
was hot. This caused it to "go off"
before they were ready for it and it
sent the ramrod on a skyrocketing ex
pedition down the street. Fortunately
it did not strike anyone. One of the
men on the wagon was pretty badly
burnt in the face by the flash from the
touch hole. This, we believe, was the
only accident of the day.
After marohing through the prinoiple
streets the procession disbanded and at
two o'clock Win. Herbert, Esq., chair
man of the county executive committee
organised the meeting by nominating
S. 0. Biggs, Esq., as President. J. T.
Budd was chosen secretary, and Cbas.
H. McWhorter and Richard Ferguson,
assistant secretaries. Messrs James
Kanely, John Morrison, Jas. M. Van
degrift, (x. F. Brady snd R. H. Arm
strong, vice Presidents.
The organisation being completed
the President announced that Senator
Bayard would introduce to the audience
Hon. Heister Giymer, of Pa. This
Mr. Bayard did in a pleasant and con
gratulatory speech which was received
with applause by the audience.

He
to
Mr. Clymer began bis address by re
ferring in a pleasant manner to tbe
original ownership of Pennsylvania,
of the three counties of Delaware, say
ing that the Delawareana were the first
and most original secessionists, and as
he had a fellow feeling for us he bad a
sort of curiosity to come down and see
how these secessionists bad prospered
in all this long period. He referred to
tbe vote of Delaware's U. S. Senators
being always oast for ths right during
ths civil war. He reviewed the course
of the Republican party, and declared
them recreant to their pledges, and that
the people had beeome wearied of them
and were now ready and anxious to try
some other party, some other leaders.
"Is there," he asked, "peace to-day
svery where over onr land ? Does it
exist in Louisiana, Alabama, Sooth
Carolina and ether portions of the
South ? Is their property secure ? An
swer my Republican friends, is it trns ?
If not true, who is responsible ? Is it
the Democratic party, or is it the party
who has the power ? Or if it be true
that there is oppression, civil and politi
cal, who is responsible ? Is there any
thing in the condition of the people to
justify it ? No ! These things
becanse the Republicans of the North
have vomited ont the worst of their
communities upon the South. It is be
cause bold, bad men have gone Sooth
and gotten themselves by fraudulent
means, in places of power. It is be
canse of Kellogg, the usurping gover
nor of Louisiana, that blood baa run
tbe streets of New Orleans. It is be
cause of this that property is no longer
worth its taxes. The relief should
have come from the President of tbe
United State*, bnt he has stood like a
man of iron and used his high office to
perpetuate this condition of affairs."
The speaker then proceeded to re
view the civil rights bill which he styl
ed the greatest curse, or devilish en
ginery of depraved hearts. He next
j'lanoed st the condition of things in
Washington He had no desire, be
said, to say aught against the President
personally, who should be the first gen
tleman in the land. He did not say
Grant was not, bnt if he was he did not
think hi* chief advisers would be Boss
Shepherd, Williams & Co. At a time
when tbe whole country was prostrated
this man Grant, who had never been
known to express a thought cr senti
ment beyond himself signed a bill
whereby his own salary was increased
from $25,000 to $50,000 per annum.
He predicted that if Grant wishes to he
will be the Repnbliean candidate for a
third term in 1876,for with his 182,000
office holders he can nominate himself
whether the better men of the ptrty
wish it or not.
He considered the appoaching elec
tion in Delaware of great moment, and
warned the Democrats to be on the
alert and elect a Democratic governor,
a Democratic congressman and a Demo
cratic legislature and return Thos. F.
Bayard to the United States Senate.
At the close of his remarks Mr. C.
was greeted with rounds of applause
and Cbas. Beasten, Esq., stopped for
ward and in a neat speech presented
him with a handsome bouquet. Mr
C. received it expressing his acknow
ledgements in appropriate words.
The chairman next announoed Hon
Eli Sanlsbury, who entertained tbe
audience for half an hour in a strong
and spirited speech.
Senator Sanlsbury was followed by
Hon. T. F. Bayard, who spoke for a
little over an hour, delivering one of
those powerful, clear and weighty argu
ments which characterize his addresses.
At the close of Mr. Bayard's address
the meeting adjourned.

 Substitute for Quinine.
For year«, quinine wai regarded as the only
specific for malarious diseases, and immense
quantities of the drug were annually consum

ried forms, stalks like an epidemic through
the laud, and whole districts are prostrated
with chills and fever, the entire population
shaking with ague. Heretofore, quinine was
regularly resorted to ; but, while it frequently
failed to effect a cure, it invariably deranged
the stomach, produciag nausea, vertigo and
fugitive pains in the head to such an extent
that month* elapsed er* the system recovered
from its effects. These objections to its use
were so marked, that the introduction of
Mishler's Herb Bitter* was hailed as a triumph
in medicine. Infinitely more certain in its
beneficial effects than quinine, it possessed
none of the demerits of that drug. Instead of
nauseating, it tones acd invigorates the
stomach, and while speedily expelling the
noxious humors, increases the appetite and
facilitates digestion thus rendering the sys
tem stronger, and better fitted to resist the at
tacks of disease. In fact, a judicious use of
Mishler's Herb Bitters at this season of the
year, will prevent the recurrence of this dis
ease, even in those who bave never passed an
antnmn without it. An exptrieuce of twenty
years proves it to be tb* greatest anti-pbbiodic
known to medical science.
There are,perhaps, no diseases so subject to
climatic changes as affections of the Kidneys.
Hundreds of our farmers, mechanics, and la
boring men, strong and hardy in all other re
spects, suffer continual inconvenience, and oc
casionally excruciating pains in the back and
across the loins; experience a frequent desire
to pass water, pain daring its passage, aad
frequent stoppages in its flow. These are
manifestations resulting from some strain or
heavy lift (perhaps years ago), and aggrava
ted by every change in the weather. Every
slight cold flies direct to this one weak^spot,
and unless promptly attended to the disease
becomes chronic, and the once strong man a
miserable wreck. Mishler's Herb Bitters is
the only certain remedy for this class of dis
It bas a peculiar tendency to the kid
neys, stimulates them to healthy action, and
removing the cause, prevents the formation of
brick-dust deposits, which, if permitted to
continue, wilt by cohesion form gravel stone,
necessitating a painful operation for its remo
val. Many of the ingredients entering into
its composition, are universally recognized as
specifics for all complaints of the urinary or
gans. In Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia,
disorders of the Bowels, and affections of the
Throat and Lungs, it is equally csrtain and
efficacious ; while, as a remedy for the com
plaints peculiar to the female sex, it haa ne
equal. Ladies, old and youag, married and
single, in every condition of life, will find
this oasAT female REMEDY prompt, taft, cer
tain and reliable. The pale, sallow completion
is replaced by a blooming, healthfol counte
nance, and its occational use enables Nature
to perform her functions regulärst and
without iNCONVENitNCM. Sold only in bottles
by all Druggists and general dealers.
