EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. the the the the MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, FEB. 27, 1875. The Minnesota Sknatorsmp. —The laag siege in the Minnesota Legislature raised last week by the election of Hon S. J. R. McMillan, chief justiee of the Supreme Court of the State, to the seat now ocoupied by Mr. Ramsey in the United States Senate. The suc cessful candidate is a republican in pol itics, but has not participated in party affairs, owing to his judicial position. was is it, the too " Press Gag" Poland and " Spoon Butler indulged in some choice remarks each other during the long all night session af the Washington House of Wednesday night. to Representatives, on Beu accused Poland of smothering his This (Poland's) Arkansas report, made the anti-Press hero mad, and he "a d—d liar.' told old Spoons he was As it was night, and applied to Butler, this language was perfectly parliamen the had tary.

He also proposed to take off the $7.50 a car now taxed upon the peach growers, and a further re duction of $5.00 per oar in lieu of the payment of the $15,000 overcharge due the growers from the R.

Bills for the admission of New Mex ico and Colorado as States ef the Union passed by the United States Senate Wednesday, by a vote ef 31 to 11. Should these bills pass the House the number of States will be increased to 39, and, what is evidently the object of the admission of these Territories, the Republican majority in the Senate to 16. In the House, the "Sundry Civil appropriation" bill was passed, thus de stroying ths last remaining probable cause for an extra session. The Re publican Canons "Force bill, pend the writ of Habeas Corpus in all the Southern States for two years, the most infernal outrage yet attempted to be perpetrated upon the country, was brought up after a long session, lasting nearly all night, prolonged by the Dem ocrats in an ineffectual attempt to pre It was to be was on to sub vent its consideration, brought up yesterday, and will doubt less pass the House, though Speaker Blaine is said to be opposed to it.

Although "there is nothing objectionable" in the present bill, we do not recollect to have seen it, or any part of it published in any of the Republican papers of Delaware, while all the Democratic papers pub lished it iu full. Is it a matter of so little consequence, notwithstanding the prominent part it played in the late elections, that these papers regard it as too uninteresting to their readers to he ! placed in their columns. ? The Republican complains of caviling scribbler" for finding fault with Major Lofland's course in regard to that bill. Nobody, we presume, ceti Mr. Lofiand for not votiug for the meut »wr j ! pie. j j "some the sures bill, but as he was opposed to it, the complaint is that be voted to amend the rules so that it could be brought before the House to be passed by its friends. Probably, if Major Lofiand had not so voted, the Civil Rights bill never would bave been passed. in j its I the ment More State Aid. —RepreaentatiVe Nowland gave notice in the Houae, at Dover, a few days ago of bis intention to "introduce a bill to. graat State aid to the Bombay Hook R. R. Co. to en able it to bridge the Delaware, the amount not to exceed one hundred This bill eom uant to the and most tions the and laws millions of dollars, mends itself to all the friends of great enterprises throughout the State. Bombay Hook railroad is an important lint in the great internatioal thorough fares between Greenland, Smyrna, Mexico and Patagonia, as the Wilming ton and Wester» is between "the city and the Sandwieh Islands, and should The they of of that even till tain ed den receive all the encouragement and as- a sistance that the State can give it. The idea ef ' 'bridging the Delaware" is a noble conception, and as the bay is not mueh over five miles wide at that point, and. .the mud not more than thirty feet deep, the plan is "perfectly feasible." Tbe amount asked for by Mr. N. may large, bnt when the vast advan tage that is to accrue to the State by of this great through line ia means taken into the aecount, the "subsidy will be seen to be very small. bridge will be tbe biggest in Then, too, our tbe world, and what is a hundred mil lions ef dollars compared to such a Canada's great Vic no toriety as that ? toria bridge, St. Louis' trans Missis sipppi bridge and New York s great North River bridge will *11 be thrown into the shade, and Delaware will be celebrated for her big bridge come as as she now is fer her peaches, whip ping post and public schools. By all let Mr. Nowland's bill have fa vorable consideration and be placed on quai footing with all the other rail road subsidies. Let them receive the means an e same treatment. and Increased Representation — Much to the diversity of opinion exists manner in which tbe greatly longed for increased «presentation shall be given Three bills have al as to this county, readj been introduced into the lower House of the Legislature for this pur Ooe by Mr. Bird for the di ity of to • pose. vision of the county ; another by Mr. Baldwin allowing an increase representatives to this county, and of Senator to etch county: and a an in of two one third by Mr. Nowland giving crease of four representatives, to be chosen by Wilmington as a separate le gislative district, and an increase of four Senators to each county, making the whole number of Senators twenty The friends of each of these one. propositions think, of course, that their idea is the best, and as it is not likely that any one of the bills will please all the eitizens of this county the best thing that the Legislature can do, that ths members may all gratify their consti tuents, would be to pass them til • The Wilmington Gazette and Com mercial, who do not very often agree, both opposed to the division of the county, and each produoes some heavy arguments against the proposed divis Apparitiona of the irrepressible constantly arising before the eyes of the Gazette and it fears for the six lower hundieds lest they sink beneath negio influence, politically.

Born in envy and malice; fostered in sectional prejudice and hate; its growth strengthened and developed through deceit and hypocrisy, the named Republican party will retire fro» the control of the national govern rois meut without a sigh of regret or »wr ef complaint from the conservative, patriotii: masses of the American peo pie. mur Successful in gaining power, through disagreements in the ranks of the Dem the self-constituted leaders of ocracy, the Republican party, devoid alike of principle, patriotism ami honesty of purpose, have abused the confidence placed in them, and spent the time which should have been devoted to at tending to the interests of the country, in making enactments and devising for retaining their hold upon the means government and keeping their hands in its trsasury, wholly unscrupulous of the means employed in the accomplish ment of their purposes, and utterly re to the gardless of tbe consequences country of thsir acts. Fearful of the just, wrath of an indig people should their malicious uant schemes be revealed in their proper character, they have over endeavored to conceal their true intentions under the cloak of patriotism and morality, and to vail their real purposes with the most deeeitful and hypocritical declara tions of honesty and philanthropy. All the greatest and most radical changes and inovations I made by them in tbe laws and institutions of the land, were N. to accomplished in the face of the most solemn and positive declarations that they would not be done, of slavery, the conferring of the elective, franchise upon the negroes, the passage of Civil Rights bills to enforce an ob noxious quasi equality of the races, all these and many more of the same char acter were accomplished after the most solemn and emphatic assnranee that no intention of passing them existed, and that they would not be enacted, even in this the very last session of their existence as the controlling ele ment of the government, they have passed a like measure larations, assurances and oft-repeated promises of themselves, their advocates, supporters and adherents in the recent election campaign, that it would not be passed. Thus again and again they have broken their faith with the people, till it seems almost an unfathomable mystery how men can longer place the least confidence in their pledges or re tain a shadow of confidence in their boasted integrity. Whatsoever good was contained in, or might bave result ed from, their enactments was so hid den and covered over with selfish aims The abelitiou And despite the dec in and fraudulent purposes as to bs wholly obscured, and lost in their effect. Upon the Republican party rests the responsibility of mauy dangerous and precedents in Federal encroach ruinous ment8 upon the reserved rights of the States. During its administration the constitution has been set at defiance and treated as a thing of no account. States have beeD invaded in time of peace by armed forces, without author ity of law ; the members of their Leg islatures arrested ; their constitutions abrogated ; their established govern ments overturned ; the rights of their people to protection of person and property and exemption from arrest and imprisonment without due process of law, taken away, and their citizens— American citizens—placed under sub jection to the rule of a brutal military officer, »hose epaulettes have tamed his little brain, and who would gladly have them declared "banditti" that he might satiate his greedy ferocity in their sufferings and death by his bands The rights of the States to regulate their domestic affairs in their own way have been ruthlessly invaded by the party in power in their mad endeavor to crush out the doctrine of "State Rights"—in which the foundations of the Republic are laid—and they have striven to build up upon the ruins of the Federal republic a vast consolidated, centralized structure which they term • "national" government, under which the States should be but little better than provinces, or cantonments. These are some of the many weighty responsibilities which rest npon the Re publican party, and some of tho reasons why the people should rejoice at the withdrawal of power from the hands of who have so fearfully abused it. • - ...

These narratives a did very well for a few years after the ; c "fifteen." But, like our own Radicals, the authors of these narratives grew | t b lazy and uninventive, and kept on re- j f or peating the same tales till nobody any I longer would listen to them. Upon which Dean Swift gave them this ex cellent advice in his treatise on "The Art of Political Lying "Concerning terrifying lies," he observes, " there are several rules : one of which is that terrible objects should not be too fre quently shown to the people lest they grow too familiar. It is absolutely necessary that the people of England should be frighted with the French King and the Pretender at least once a year ; but the bears should be chamed up again till that time twelve months. The want of observing this so necessary a precept, and bringing out the raw bead-and-bloody-bones upon every trif ling occasiou, has produced great in difference in the vulgar of late years ." The Radical members of the House are not as a rule much addicted to litera ture, or they would have long since seen reason to suspect that their organ ists were not keeping up with the cur rents of popular feeling and popular thought. It is not enough in politics to lie and to lie steadily. One must lie with judgment and with discretion. or der a to N. Y.

From this line feeders will be built to Delmar and Seaford. Another line is to be run north of Georgetown from Milford to Smyrna, with possible extensions in the future to New Castle and Wilming ton.

It is conceded generally that the needs of the city of Wilmington differ from those of the other parts of the State, therefore some plan must be devised to satisfy her numerous populatiou.

To sleep of nature, so sleeps our dear one. ing resigned herself to the will of God several days before her death : while she was yet strong and able to commune with the loved ones around her; she talked sweetly of her Heavenly Home of that bright and beautiful land where she was goiHg to be forever with the Lord. Oft in her quiet peaceful moments she would faintly whisper, "I am going home to Jesus " Such implicite trust and resigna tion is rarely met with. Being ever mindful of the sorrows and pleasures of others, her life was one of perfect self-saerificc and devo tion. Devoted to every duly in her little sphere on earth, she now bears with her richly garnered sheaves of life's fair toils. Just at the season when all the hopes ol life are most buoyant, when all its prospects are brightest, when its trials touch most lightly, and are endured with most cheerfulness, when the smiles rf love are most freely lavish ed, and earthly ties most tenaciously united, the mandate comes. "The silver cord is loosened, and the golden bowl broken at the fountain." Truly, "in the midst of life we are in death." Though her sun has gone down ere yet 'tis nooa, it is a source of the richest, sweetest consolation to know that she calmly sinks to her repose with the full as surance of a glorious resurrection. at 1 1 a "Death's colil white hand is like the snow. Laid softly on the furrowed hill ; It hides the broken seam Mow, But leaves its glories brighter still." Giving to each uns tender parting words, and breathing upon ail her last earthly bless ing, there was not a cloud o'ershadowing that peaceful brow. Every earthly treasure had been carefully committed to God. One, by one, the little ones were brought to re ceive the parting kiss, the last embrace of a mother's love. The lonely husband,the leved ones all, must drain the bitter cnp. Gone ! gone ! Close we now the door of memory to all that is mortal of our dear departed.

"In the midst of life we are in death." Truly this scriptural injunction has been literally fulfilled in the death of the subject of this notice. There is a solemnity at all times attached to death, but more especially when the young are stricken down. Ia the very hey-day of youth with apparently a long life of usefulness before him, the summons came and he is gone from among us. How solemnly impressive the lesson taught us all, and par ticularly the young, to set their house in order; so that'when the call is made, whether it he in youth or old age we may be ready to fold our drapery about us and go to dwell with God. •'He shall sleep, but not forever, In the lone and silent grave ; Blessed be the Lord who taketh. Blessed be the Lord who gave. In the bright eternal city, Death can never, never come ; In his own good time he'll call us From our rest, to home, sweet home." R. B. M. i ! ^otites.
