more Railroad/ and about thirty-two miles
from Baltimore, the victim being Miss Susan
Taylor, about forty years of age, and a lady
of means. She was killed within a few yards
of her residence, in broad daylight, by a
colored man named Joshua Griffin, armed
with a nub, who knocked her down alter
great resistance on her part and beat in her
skull, after which her body was thrown into
a sheep pen, and the house ransacked for
plunder. Joshua Griffin, the murderer, is
about 25 years of age. After an exciting pur
suit and a near escape from lynching, he was
arrested, charged with the commission of the
deed, and lodged in jail at Belair.
The murderer was raised by Miss Taylor,
and lived with her until a tew years since,
when his bad babils necessitated his dis
charge. He visited the house of the deceased
while the other members of the family were
at work in a distant field, and committed the
crime for money, a large sum of which be
found in the bouse and took away with him.
That he will receive th* punishment he so
justly merits, there is no doubt.
The Democratic Mass Meeting.
The *eounty mass meeting held in
this place on Thursday, though not so
large as such meetings usually are at
Middletown, was nevertheless a very
good sized meeting, not lacking in en
thusiasm, and held anywhere else it
would have been considered a large
affair. The people of Middletown,
however, are so accustomed to seeing
immense crowds at our meetings that
they are not satisfied with any number
short of thousands
The people from the surrounding
country began to eome into town at an
early hour and at 11 o'olock the Bayard
club in carriages, wagons and on borse
bsck bended by the Diamond State
Brus Band, of Middletown, marched
ont of town to meet delegations from
the neighboring towns. About one
o'cloek they returned, the line being
considerably swelled by s fine delega
tion from Odessa, accompanied by the
"Verdi" Band of tbst town, who, with
their new instruments, pretty uniforms
and elegant band wagon, made $ band
seme appearance ; also delegations from
. Georges, Armstrong's and other
places, fit the meantime the delega
tion from Newark arrived and pnt his
horse up at the hotel
On the return the Middletown olnb
headed the line, lead by a York wagon
decorated with flags drawn by four
handsome horses and occupied by
Meurs. Wm. B. and E. R Cochran;
following these were large

citement and hurry the meo 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 bole. This, we believe, was the
only accident of the day.
After marobing through the principle
streets the procession disbanded and at
two o'olock Wm. Herbert, Esq., chair
man of the county executive committee
organixed the meeting by nominating
S. C. Biggs, Esq., as President. J. T.
Budd was chosen secretary, and Cbss.
H. McWhorter and Richard Ferguson,
assistant secretaries. Messrs James
Kanely, John Merrison, Jas. M. Van
degrift, (J. F. Brady and R. H. Arm
strong, vice Presidents.
The organisation being completed
the President annoanced that Senator
Bayard would introduee to the audience
Hon. Heister Clymer, of Pa. This
Mr. Bayard did in a pleasant and con
gratulatory speech which was received
with applause by the audience.
Mr. Clymers Address.
Mr. Clymer began his address by re
ferring in a pleasant manner to the
original ownership of Pennsylvania,
of the three counties of Delaware, say
ing that the Delawareans were the first
and most original secessionists, and as
he had a fellow feeling for us he had a
sort ef curiosity to come down and see
how these secessionists bad prospered
in all this long period. He referred to
the vote of Delaware's U. S. Senators
being always oast for the right daring
the civil war. He reviewed the course
of the Republican party, and declared
them recreant to their pledges, and that
the people had become wearied of them
and were now ready and anxious to try
some other party, some other leaders.
"Is there," he asked, "peace to-day
everywhers over our land ? Does it
exist in Louisiana, Alabama, South
Carolina and ether portions of the
South f Is their property secure T An
swer my Republican friends, is it true ?
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, oivil and politi
cal, who is responsible? Is there any
thing in the condition of the people to
justify it ? No ! These thiigs are so
because the Republicans of the North
have vomited oat the worst of their
communities upon the South. It is be
cause bold, bad men have gone South
and gotten themselves by fraudulent
means, in places of power. It is be
cause of Kellogg, the usurping gover
nor of Louisiana, that blood has run
the streets of New Orleans. It is be
cause of this that property
worth its taxes. The i
have come from the President of the
United States, bat 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
glanced at 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 aot, bnt if he was he did not
think b>s chief advisers would be Boss
Shepherd, Williams & Co. At a time
when the 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 Republiean candidate for a
third term in 1876,for with his 182,000
office holders he can nominate himself
whether the better men of the party
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 Tbos. F.
Bayard to the United States Senate.

A Substitute for Quinine.
For years, quinine was regarded as the only
specific for malarious diseases, and immens#
quantities of the drug were snnunlly consum
ed throughout our western country, mors par
ticularly along the river bottoms and adjoin
ing low lands
With the fall months malaria, in all its va
ried forms, stalks like an epidemic through
the land, 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 core, it invariably deranged
the stomach, producing nausea, vertigo and
fugitive pains in the head to such an extent
that months elapsed ere the system recovered
from its effects. These objections to its use
were so marked, that the introduction of
Mishler's Herb Bitters was bailed as a triumph
in medicine. Infinitely more certain in its
beneficial effects than quinine, it possessed
none of the demerits of that drag. Instead of
nauseating, it tones and invigorates the
stomach, and while speedily expelling the
noxious hnmors, 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 nse of
Mishler's Herb Bitters at this season of the
year, will prevent the recurrence of this dis
ease, even in those who have never passed an
autumn without it. An experience of twenty
years proves it to be the greatest anti-periodic
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 during 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 weatspot,
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 clus of dis
eases. It bu a peculiar tendency to the kid
neys, stimulates them to healthy action, and
removing the cause, prevents the formation of
brick-dnst deposits, which, if permitted to
continue, will by cohesion form gravel stone,
necessitating a painful operation for its remo
val. Many of the ingredients entering into
its composition, are universally recognized u
specifics for ail complaints of the urinary or
gans. In Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, ail
disorders of the Bowels, and affections of the
Throat and Longs, it is equally certain and
efficacious ; while, as a remedy for the com
plaints peculiar to the female sex, it hu ne
equal. Ladies, old and young, married and
single, ia every condition of life, will find
this gbxat female REMEDY prompt, eaft, cer
tain and reliable. The pale, sallow complexion
is replaced by a blooming, bealthfnl counte
nance, and its oecaeional uee enables Nature
to perform her functions reoclabat and
without iBCONvixizMCN. Sold only in bottles
by all Druggists and general dealers.
