EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. H1DDLETOWII, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, OCT. 16, 1815. Ttt* Elections this Week. —The Ohio Suto Election, which took place last Tuesday, resulted in Republicans. General Hayes, the Re publican esndidste for Governor, was elected over his Democratic competitor, Governor Wm. Allen, by • majority of from 2500 to 4000. The contest close and the official returns favor of the is very from all the districts will be required to definitely decide it. The Republi havo also elected a majority of the cans Legislature. A very heavy vote was polled throughout tho State. Iowa carried by the Republicans by large majorities, as usual was Scribner's Monthly Magazine — The October number of this excellent magasine closed the ninth volume As interesting home magazine the Scribnkr takes the precedence of all others. So rapidly has it grown into favor since its introduction t few years ago that it is to most people familiar as household words. Those who have had it feel as though they could not do without it. Through the cour tesy of the publishers we are enabled to offer this charming monthly and the Tranbgript at the very low price of $5.25, postage pre-paid on both. As the subscription price of Scribnkr is $4.00 per annum, this will be found to be a liberal offer, of which we trust many of oar subscribers will avail them selves. We had last year quite a num ber of subscribers, through us, to Scribner and we hope that not only they will resume but that the list will be greatly increased this year. Sub scribers to St. Nicholas, that best of children's magasines, will also please bear in mind that their subscriptions expired with the October number and renew at onee that they may get the November numbers on time. an .once (Communicated.) Niw Cabtli, Del., October lltb, 1875. Editor of Tranteript—Dear Sir :— Permit me to use a little space in your paper to commend to the favorable no tice of the oitizens of Middletown and of its vicinity, Mr. Sumner Stevens, the Principal of the Middletown Acad emy I have known him for over thirty years—most of the time intimately. He is by birth, training and associa tion, a gentleman. Veracious, honest and honorable, not the slightest stain . or stigma bas ever been attached to his character or reputation. All his manhood, val, hat been devoted to' the instruction of ypnth, in whioh he has been pecu liarly successful. Thoroughly educated, in a eourse at the University of Georgia, which was supplemented by a year at WesrPoint, in the higher mathematics, under the late Prof Mahan, teaching is his pro fession, in which he has attained envi able eminence. In procuring the services of Mr. Stevens, the Trustees of Middletown Academy have presented to parents and guardians desiriDg to educate their children well and thoroughly at home a rare opportunity. Very reapectfully your obedient ser Geo. Troup Maxwkll. with a short inter f vant. Peterson's Magazine, that Queen of the Lady's Books, is on our table for November. The principal steel en graving,''Mamma 8 Flower Girl, is very beautiful. So, also, is the mam moth colored steel fashion plate. But, as a cotemporary says, the stories, the fashions,, the patter ns, in shor t, e very thing in "Peterson" is the best of its kind. For 1876 great improvements .... j . _ ., r , will be made. Among these will be a scries of illustrated articles, describing the Centennial Exhibition, which will alone be worth the subscription price. x> . • V k k But, to addition to this, every subsertb er will be presented, as a Centennial Gift with a suoerb steel engraving (large sized for framing) of Trumbull's great picture. "The Signiog of the Declara tion of Independence." • These very extraordinary inducements will make this magazine far 1876 more desirable than ever. Yet the price will remain the same, viz.: Two Dollars a Year, the postage pre-paid by the publisher. The prices to clubs are astonishingly low, (postage also pre-paid,) viz : three copies far $4.80, with a superb Mez zotint (21 inches by 26) "Christmas Morning," the finest and costliest ever offered, to the person getting np the club; or five copies for $8.50, (postage pre-paid,) and both an extra copy and the premium engraving to the person getting up the club. For large clubs the prices are even lower. Specimens of the Magazine are sent, gratis, if written for. Subscribe to nothing else until yon have seen a copy of this popu lar Magazine.

MOORE & CO, THE CELEBRATED Hagerstown or Eeer's F.atent (THUS BEST) gkr^in", t t The Points of Superiority in this Drill over all others are : 1st. Force Feed Arrangement for Sowing Grain, consisting of one gnm and one iron roller; which is really the only Force Feed arrangement made, giving yon an even and regular distribution of grain at all times. Can sow any amount of grain from a peck to two bushels. 2d. The Patent Spring Hoes, having Gnm Springs on end of Drag Bar (and the only perfect gum spring arrangement made), there by doing away with the old wooden brake pins, nnd allowing the Drill to pass any ob struction that the axle will go over without in any way interfering with the working of the Drill. 3d. The Patent Movable or Sliding Fulcrum of Spring Bar, for sowing the grain deep or shallow, is an improvement not possessed by any other Drill. 4th. The Patent Shield for Covering the Gear-wheels, to prevent clogging or cramping with weeds or cornstalks, or accumulating of grit and gravel, and making the Drill run heavy, is a decided improvement over all other Drills. 5th. The Land Surveyor is as correct as it is possible to make one, having one face showing 1-16 part of an acre, and another face registering the acres. 6tb. The Patent Axles are so constructed that the bearings are on the outer and inner parts of the spindle, causing the Drill to run lighter to the team, and more steady than if bearings were on centre of spindle. 7th. All we can say for the Patent Guano or Fertilizer Attachment is that it is the only Drill which will sow or distribute properly all kinds of fertilizers in all conditions. THE BEST also has Patent lloe Shifter, by which Boots can he changed from straight to zigzag line, or vice versa, while seeding along. Tlie Grass Seed attachment is perfect. In fact, it would be impossible to give all the good and superior points, possessed by this Drill, here, without occupying too much space. Suffice it to say, that our Drill is just what is claimed for it ; , ' —THE BEST— AND HAS NO EQUAL. Pamphlets of Price List and Terms sent on application. L. V. Aspril.
