EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. J UDDUZTOWK, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, JAN. 15, 1876. Wie bkte received, through Senator Bayard, four volumes of the Congres sional Record of the XLIIId Congress. These are valuable books and we heart ily thank Mr. Bayard for this thought ful attention. The Best Family Newspaper.— This ia the claim which the publishera of the New Turk Observer make in be half of their paper. It ia a bold claim to make in our day, when there are so many papers ; bat an nndeviating course in sending out, for fifty-three yoara, a large, full, fresh, readable, and pure newspaper, which is unsur passed, justifies them in the claim. We can recommend the Observer. It baa no hobbies ; it is sound in doctrine, impartial sod unbiased, reliable in its news, intereating and instructive io its various departments, and offers no clap trap premiums or pictures. For speci men copies, address 8.1. Prime & Co., New York. Almanacs and Calendars. —The Baltimore Sun issued this year a pretty little almanac containing a complete record of the most important events in Ameriean history, Maryland election return«, the names of all the members of the Senate and House of Representa tive« of the United States and of the Maryland Legislature and much other valuable informatitfn ■ For business men who have not time to wade through lengthy editorials and wordy descriptions of every day occur rences, the Sun is one of the best, if not the very best paper published in the United States. Its reportorial corps is exoelled by none, and no news of im portance ia ever missed from its col umns, though everything is so condens ed as to gîte the whole subject matter in ifiaaU space and law words. The Sun it par excellence the Maryland paper before nil others. Wwalao thank G. W. Child«, Esq., of the Ledger, for a eopy of the Ledger Almanac, a chronicle of local and public events which can no where else be obtained in such complete form, the loss of which by one who had once had it, woold be seriously felt. The Ledger, like the Sun, ia invaluable to business men, not only for its condensation ot news but for tta record of the markets, domestic and foreign, commercial and monetary. The Palisade (N. J.) News has also issued a beautiful almanac very accept able to its numerous patrons. Beviiring Fast Issues. It is rather a severe reflection upon the honesty of the professions of the "Let ns have peace" party, that the first resolution declarative of an earnest desi r e for the spr e ad of peace and good will throughout tbe country, and of a détermination to use all means for tbe promotion of those much desired objects should have been introduced into the natioual legislature and passed, by a Democratic majority. With all their expressions of patriotism ; with all their load declarations about tbe centennial celebration of American independence and unity ; with all their professed love of the Union, no resolution having for its object • reconciliation of the lately antagonistic sections of the country and tbe restoration of good feeling among all the people of all the States was ever adopted while a Republican majority swayed the deliberations of Congress. It remained for a Democratic Congress, msny of whose members were men from the very section against which tbe thunderbolts of tbe wrath of the domi nant party of the North have for so many years been hurled with all the vindic tiveness which malice and hate could engender, to inaugurate the centennial year with a declaration in favor of peace —" good will to all, malice toward none. But, as if fearing already any possi ble good effect that such a conciliatory coarse might produce upon the minds of the people, and feeling perhaps that the life of his party depended upon keep ing alive the bad feelings and passions, aroused by tbe war, Mr ex Speaker Blaine, the representative head and leader of the Republican party, and can didate for Presidential honors at its hands, sprang to the front a few days ago waving on high tbe "bloody shirt" and, over the shoulders of Jefferson Dsvia, denouncing tbe South and doing his utmost to quieken into life tbe smouldering embers of sectional hate, rehearsing the stale stories of cruelty and bloodshed done daring the war and seeking by a tragic appeal to tbe worst passions of men to revive anew tbe old strife between tbe North sod South — This msny of his Repabliean parasites land him for, and term it the "setting of a political trap*' for his Democratic adversaries. Mr. Blaine's speech was answered in like tone by Mr. B H. Hill of Georgia, who administered a proper and deserved rebuke to .bis uncalled for and malicious attack upon the South, proving tbe otter falsity of his asser tions and charging upon the Republican leaders the responsibilitiea of the alleged eroeltiea of the war. Others followed upon both sides of tbe subject, and thus another civil war (of words) has been «tirred op through the folly of an ambi tions office-seeking politician wbo to sc oompliah his own object of obt tiding office has sought to reopen the old wfttndu and inaugurate another era of |ate and ill-will at the very commence ment of the much boasted centennial year. Mr. Blaine's patriotism is of the kind that would burn Rome or betray West Point to secure his own personal ends. It is to be earnestly hoped that this disgraceful scene will soon close to be no more opened. * h » Religious Proscription. Some weeks since President Grant in a speech at Des Moines and subse quently in his message to Congress, gave the key note to his parasites throughout the country for the next campaign, in which he aspires to be a third term candidate, and recklessly raised the issue of sectarianism. How ready his protoges and followers are to seize the cue, has been notably evinced in ex-Speaker Blaine's resolutions be fore Congress on the Public School Question, and the resolution of Bishop Haven, passed by the Methodist Con ference in Boston. Lesser lights how ever, radiating from the Presidential luminary, and reaching into darker're cesses, carry (be sentiments of bis text unto a more dangerous class. For ex ample, at the celebration by the negroes of the Emancipation proclamation in Wilmington, speakers—white men, pro fessors and instructors of religion— mounting the platform, violently as sailed ihe Roman Catholic Church, de nounced its priests, principles and prac tices, spoke of the Pope as the incarna tion of wickedness, bis followers as devils in disguise, and the churches a* asylums of profligacy, and worse. And this to an audience of ignorant, unlet tered colored people, easily excited and unable to reason ; hence, controlled by their passions To wbat meanness will not men like these leaders and lackeys descend ? Has Grant ao soon forgotten the gallant aoldieis, whose brave and heroic deeds on the Mississippi and at Vicksburg gave him victory and re nown many of whom were of the Romish Church ? Has be forgotten the bold signature of Carroll, of Carrolltou, to that instrument which gave to the world a new nation that, to-day, honors him with its chief magistracy ? Has be forgotten the noble band of ministering Angels, (the Sisters of Charity) who attended with unwearying care the wounded, sick and dying of bis armies? Has he forgotten that Constitutional provision, inhibiting Congress from the passage of any law "respecting an estab lishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof?" Has he forgot ten "A grateful mind, by owing, owes not, but still pays?" That for place, power and position, he would with sacrilegious utterances, inject into the political arena, sectarian prejudice ? If he has forgotten, the good sense of the American people, will- not forget how dangerous aro the teachings of such demagogues, and rebuke them fittingly And has the reverend proselyte and his associate speakers at the negro fandango in Wilmington, forgotten that while their to ry ancestry were crying ont for the "divine right of Kings," the Cath olic people of the colonies, following iu the wake of Carroll were "giving their lives, their liberties and sacred honors" to create the United States of America? and from tbenc^, until now, have been tried, trusted, and true citizens aDd soldiers ? As a fitting contrast to the teachings of the latter day patriots, we quote the following reminiscence of Charles Car roll, of Carrollton : In the year 1826, after all save one of the band of patriots whose signatures are borue on the Decluratiou of Inde pendence had descended to the tomb, and the venerable Carroll alone re mained among the liviug, the govern ment of the city of New Fork deputed a committee to wait on the illustrious survivor and obtain from him, for de posit in the public hall of the city, a copy of the Declaration of 1776, graced and authenticated anew with his sign manual. The aged patriot yielded to the request, and affixed with hi« own hand to the copy of that instrument the grateful, solemn and pious supplemental declaration which follows : "Grateful to Almighty God for the blessings which, through Jesus Christ our Lord, He has conferred ou my be loved country in her emancipation, and on myself in permitting me, under cir cumstances of mercy, to live to the age of eighty-nine years, and to survive the fiftieth year of American independence, and certify by my present signature my approbation of the Declaration of Inde pendence adopted by Congress on the Fourth of July, 1776, which I origi nally subscribed on the 2d day of Au gust of the same year, and of which 1 am uow the last surviving signer, I do hereby recommend to the present and future generations the principles of that important document as the best earthly inheritance their ancestors could be queath to them, and pray that the civil and religious liberties they have secur ed to my country qjay be perpetrated to remotest posterity, and extended to the whole family of man.

The women are rather tbe leaders in the strike, which it is thought will not become general or of long duration. Special police are on hand to preaerve the peace. )> For the Transcript. Mr. Uditor-L-l see in your paper of Jan. 1st, my name mentioned is con nection with a bell lately put on the Methodist Church here. I wish they bad left my name out, but as they have used it, and certain twitterings and long bows here, have been drawn on it, and false impressions probably gone abroad, I have thought proper to give a correct version of the affair. Several years ago I put up an advertisement for a sale of building lots at this place, and stated that I would give one lot on which to build a church. I did not say wbat denomination or care what. The Methodists being the most numer ous were the first to apply I made them a deed of a lot, and along aide of it. I had a wood right to a fine grove of 1 to 1£ acres. I told these Metho dists if they would secure the fee simple of the person owning it I would let the trees or grove remain, and done so. They afterwards built a small church until they were able to build a larger After the small church was built one. some of them were talking about a bell, and I bought them au iron beil, it Boon cracked ; I returned it and bought an other; it also cracked, and remained so until some time in the early part of last month, when my son Richard, who is a Methodist, and the only one of our family, asked me if I would see the Railroad Company, and ask if they had a secoud-baud bell off of one of their cars. I.called at Wilmington and was told by the foreman that there was one, and he showed it to me, remarkiug at the same time that be thought there were two or three at Broad & Prime, Phila delphia, and some of them were proba bly larger than the one we were look ing at in Wilmington. I then wrote up to Mr. 0. K. Ide, that I wished he would, for me, call on Mr. H. F. Ken ney, and tell him the Methodists at this place would bo obliged to them if they would give them a second-hand bell. Messrs. Kenney, Ide and Mills let me know that there was a bell and fixings that used to be on the old New Castle depot, and since that depot was torn down, said bell was not in use, aud that they woold give the Methodists of this place that bell, that it was much larger and more suitable than a car bell. Mr. Kenney gave the order and Mr. I. N. Mills, superintendent of the Delaware Railroad, Wilmington, soon had the old bell and hangings got out and sent down to this place. The hangings and bell fit the cupola of the said little ohurob as well as if they had been originally made for it. This is the whole version. I am no nearer being a Methodist now than I was forty years ago ; I never attend the church unless some times at funerals, but T am now and always bave been in favor of the largest amonnt of civil and religious liberty and eternal separation of church and State. Therefore, had any other denomination have bnilt a church here and had asked roc to do them a favor, I should have done the same thing for them All I ask is (he right to my opinion, and of course grant that to everybody else.

Current Literature. "Old Reliable." —The first num ber of the new volume of the American Farmer, for 1876 ia received, and is a capital ooe in every respect. The mass of practical information in every branch of agriculture, iu this single number, ig worth far more to any inquiring farmer who is anxious to improve bis land and his condition, than the year's subscription. Space cannot be spared to enumerate the various papers offered in this initial number of the year ; but the reports from the agricultural club and other meetings, of successful modes of farming, will be found of peculiar interest—pomigg as they do from well known practical farmers and horticul turists The number of correspondents of this old journal, as shown in the copy before ns, is very large, and in pludes letters from France and Ger many, apd from many of States, all giving the most improved methods < f farming within their bounds.

He recently drove from' Mans to Paris, a distance of 240 miles, . , OL _ t _ 10 18 hours, bis carnage weigh.ng four tons, and carrying twleve men He whizzed through Paris in daylight, attracting the attention of every body except the horses, who seemed to re gard the carriage with no suspecion whatever. Indeed, the horses proba bly wondered in their hearts why such a machine had not been invented be* fore. M. Roliee guides his carriage as he would a horse, sitting in front The boiler is placed at the back, and there are four cylinders placed two-by two between the four wheels. The Parisians wbo go crazy over every new sensation, expect to see their streets full of steam carriage* soon of all sorts, and we hope that their expectations will be realixed. The horse bas done his duty loDg aDd faithfully, and he is entitled* to sit down and take a rest for a while. HARBIKD.
