EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, FEB. 5, 1876. To The Nation the most startling thing Morton's speech is that it should hare been made, listened to and report ed. Nobody bas the smallest belief in Morton's honesty, and "in a pure and healthy state of politics and of public opinion be would be Using in close re tirement, and taking his exercise after dark. Speaker Kerr has written a letter to J. H. Read, of Phiadelpbia, declining to be a candidate for President. Mr Kerr says that the Iodiana Democrats will present Governor Hendricks as a candidate for that high position, and he "will stand with them in hearty co operation. 75 A statement was recently made by the Springfield (Mass.) Republican that the United Slates were still pay ing tribute to the amount of $20,000 to the Barbary States. This was most positively denied by mauy other pa lt is now said, however, and pen. the information is professedly obtained direct from the Treasury department, that though the tribute is no longer paid, the appropriation, nominally for that purpose, is still kept up. Now the question comes, what is done with the money ? Troth wïll last. —That good old family newspaper, the New York Ob now some fifty-three years old, still holds on to the old truths which firmly advocated when it was server, were so founded. No new lights or nineteenth doctrines bave ever caused it to It is century trip or make any false step, always satisfying in our day, to take up a newspaper that is sound and relia ble. The Observer comes to us weekly with n variety of reading in addition to the news, aud is always pure and healthy—just the paper for a family. For specimen copies, address S. I Prime & Co., New York. Dcath of Congressman Stark weather. —The Hon. Henry Stark weather, member of Congress from the third district of Connecticut, died in Washington city at eight o'clock last Saturday morning, of pnuemonia, hav ing been taken ill on Friday last. Mr. Starkweather was born at Preston, Conn., April 29.1826, and was educat ed principally in the public schools. He studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced for a number of He wss a member of the Con years. necticut Legislature in 1857 ; was a delegate to the national republican con vention tbat nominated Abraham Liu coln in 1860 and Ôtant in' 1868. In 1861 President Lincoln appointed him postmaster of Norwich, and in 1865 he was reappointed by President John but resigned in 1866. He was a as SOD, nseiubsr of the Fortieth, Forty-first aod Forty-third Congresses, and elected to the Forty-fourth Congress, > having been elected the last time by thousand majority over ex-Senator Lafayette S. Foster. He was a man of good ability, and highly esteemed by his associates. was re one Ground Hog Day.—L ast NVednes On tbat day was "ground hog day. day, the second of February tb*t very animal is said to come out of sagacious his burrow under ground and take an observation of tbe weather, and hit* after actions denote wbat the state of the weather will be during the rest of the winter months: that is if it be a clear, sunshiny day, so tbat he esn see his shadow, he either immediately re turns to his home beneath the soil, or he leaves it for good and all, being as sured by the sight of his shadow that the remsioder of the winter will be cold and blustery or mild and pleasant. It is one or the other of these ways that his hogship is said to indicate the probabilities' of the weather. Some declare that if be sees his shadow he goes in, while others are equally posi tive tbat if he sees it be comes out There cannot, however, be the least doubt tbat the animal knows all about tbe weather and that his actions on the second day of February are a never failing test of the weather, the only difficulty being to determine just what his actions sre. Like the old lady's test of Indigo—she always tested her - indigo by putting it in water, when if it was good it either sauk or floated and she didn't know which—so with the ground hog he either goes in or stays ont, on seeing his shadow, and nobody seems to know exactly which. The Wind on a Frolic. —The hur ricane which swept over the country on Tuesday appears to have been one of the severest on record, and to have ex tended almost all over the entire North ern and Western and a large portiou of the Southern States. In this immediate locality its ravages were very light : in deed, we have not thus far beard of any serious damage at all done by it. But, as we gather from the daily papers, the results of this frolic of the wind were 'rather destructive to property. Id B altimore alone upwards of three bun- 1 dred and fifty bouses were unroofed, besides much injury done toother prop erty. Tbe Sun devotes two columns to r detailed account of the damages in , T . , tba city. n tlade phta, also, its force waa everely felt, especially among —;-v ■h'.„i.>—. the Centennial '-buildings, which were injured to the amount of some $3500. Many houses were an roofed in theoity, flag staffs were blown down, sky-lights broken in and mach other damage done. In Washington about fifty houses were unroofed and the steeple of the Metro politan M. E. Church was displaced, and left in a leaning position. At New York scores of houses were unroofed, and telegraph poles and wires were everywhere prostrated. Despatches from all over the country report great destruction to property and, in some instances, injury to persons. A news boy on the Washington branch of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad was blown from the tiaio, while passiog from one car to another and badly injured. a Proceedings of Congress. The proceedings of Congress during the past week have Dot been of a very interesting character to the general reader. In the Senate the chief sub ject of discussion was the bill for the payment of the interest on the 3.65 bonds of the District of Coltyitbia, which was continued from day to day until Thursday, when, notwithstanding the earnest opposition of the Democrats and Conservative Republicans, it was passed. Senator Bayard made a strong speech against the bill on Tuesday. On Monday Mr. Morton wanted to take up his Mississippi resolutions and continue bis "outrage" tirade, but did a more sensible tbiog in giving away to Mr. Cameron, of Pennsylvania, to allow him to call up the Centennial Appro priation bill. A bill to remove the po litical disabilities of D. T. Chandler, of Baltimore, was reported favorably, as was also the concurrent resolution pro posing a common standard of money for Great Britain and the United States. A bill was reported to restore to the pension rolls soldiers of the war of 1812 whose names had been stricken off fur disloyalty during the late inter state war. In the debate on the West Point Aoadetny Appropriation bill, a personal set-to between S. S. Cox, of New York, and Hale, of Maine, in which such manly and diguified ex pressions as "Blaine-'s little bub" ap plied to the Republican by the Demo crat, aDd "Shoo Fly" to the latter by thu former, made things lively fur a while. The bill was dually passed fixing the pay of cadets at $540, with out rations. A proposed amendment to the Constitution making tbo Presi dential term of office six years and the bolder ineligible to a second term, was taken up, debated and voted down as were also several amendments to it. The Diplomatic Appropriation bill was taken up, and the Democrats tried to make reductions in the different por tions of it, which were, as usual, op posed by the Republicans. The Federal Treasury. Senator Davis, United States SeDae tor from West Virginia, has made some very startling statements in his place in the Senate as to certain deficits, er rors, false bookkeeping, discrepancies, or by whatever Mine prudeucu may see fit to designate them, which cannot fail to excite great public ^lartu. When ever tbe accounts of the United Sta.es Treasury fail to commaud the public faith and confidence then pauic will assuredly follow, or if uot tbat, such a doubt as to tbe character of tbe fiscal conditioo of tbe country as to destroy in great measure its credit. Govern ment accounts are like those of any large private concern When the books of tbe latter will not present an exact and true state uf its affairs, its credit is affected and insolvency will come sooner or later. The system of keep ing these Federal fiscal statements or "books" is either intended to prevent the discovery of fraud, or they are kept in such a tnauuer as to produce that re sult. Senator West has shown beyond contradiction these statements are un true in point of fact. He has shown that attempted explanations are false. He has shown (bat there are discrepan cies which amount to nearly three hun dred millions of dollars ! No ooe has disproved or explained a word of this charge. Tbe Radical Senate refused to order an investigation. Let tbe bondholders, tbe dear patiots, the loyal leaguers, who bought these bonds at forty cents on the dollar be easy ; the toilers will cheerfully pay the gold in terest on false and genuine bonds alike Philadelphia Commonwealth. Joan Sherman, the brother of tbe Geueral, who iutenda to punish any "Southern mau" with "one single opin ion"wiib a war " ten times worse" than the last, has written a letter iu favor of Govenor Hayes, of Ohio, for Presi dent He says if tbe Democrats elect a President there will be no mure rain ; onions will rise iu price to one cent apiece; the negro will have to work; the states oao mind their own business, without "more troops;" tbe Radicals can't steal any more ; public plunderers will have nothing to do; economy wi'l be made imperative in public affairs; rings will be broken ; Grant will bave to go back to his tanyard ; Boss Shep herd will not bother the New York World reporters ; the rascals will have to migrate to Mexico; he (Sherman) can't nlay tbe fool with the ntoDey of the people; his brother, tbe General, will bave to set up a peanut stand in Georgia by the sea ; and things will go on generally in favor of peace, fraternity »nd prosperity, and the Federal consti tion after beiog exhibited at the Cen tennial will be brought back to Wash ington, end negro troops will go back to blacking boots—aoq then tbe deluge. — Exchange. 1 They are doing pretty well in Massa ohuietts, with a balf-miH6>o defalcation and s three-quarter-million bank rob bery besides numerous failures, all in ° n f wee , k Tl,e bank robbpr J a PP par » to have been most artistic and complete, and the burglars have probably gona to meet Wiualow. "x (Communicated.) Mr. Editor ;-<-I see by one of WilmiDgton dailies that the Lamb Appoquinimink "rises to explain." appears to be in trouble on account your not having the proceedings of Peninsula Agricultural and Pomologi cal Association properly authenticated. For your especial benefit and for information of your readers be under takes to give you the exact form. Now would it cot be well when that gentle man undertakes to instruct an editor that he himself be first right ? He tells you they should have been authenticat ed by Win R Cochran, its president, and J B. Clarkson, its secretary. .Now, [ would like to know what part J Clarkson took in the proceedings that meeting that he should attest proceedings? being present until announcement of the election of efficers, during all of which time the late popu lar secretary, J. T Budd, Esq.. acted as secretary. If your correspondent not in error he, Mr Budd, was proper pe.son to authenticate the pro ceedings, if it really was required. The writer then launches out. in a tirade agaiust one Robert Cummins who present at the meeting and tells us his eccentricities at other meetings which Mr. C and he had had the mis fortune to both be present at. He next falls into the same train of reasoning which many men of our own locality "that the members of said Association living in and around Middletown had assumed the risk, laid off the grouod aud held two of the most successful agricultural fairs ever held on this pe ninsula." Now, in the foregoing quota tion, Mr. T. assumes the position which our people tried so hard (at the late meeting) to prove was not correct Did not Prof Porter say an impression had gone abroad that it was simply a Mid dletown institution while our name would indicate that it was a Peninsula organization? and our members did try to do away with that impression 1'. now reiterates it that it is a Middle town institution : a position which think our own people would be loathe to seud abroad. He then goes on say "I have been thiuking when Robert dies and goes to Heaven and meets the angel Gabriel he will remark to him, 'old friend, böw has this place been managed?' and after hearing his reply he will suggest an improvement: 'If you old folks will call yourselves togeth er I will suggest a committee of five, but as mover. Mr Gabriel, I will expect to be appointed cbaiiman Now, Mr. Editor, it is not worth while for the Lamb to be meeting trouble half way ubout Robert's operations to heaven. Although they have been competitors at the peach growers' uieetiugs, when the time comes referred to above, the Lambuud Robert will have started in opposite directions and the Lamb will be no more troubled with Robert's windy remarks which he so much complains of, and it is the earnest wish of your correspcudent, may the Lamb not get in a climate loo warm for the cultivation of peathes. Why should he be so interested in Robert's future welfare in distant regions?— Would it not be well to look out after his own welfare under such changes as he contemplates for Robert. I was well pleased with the article in your last issue signed "The Red-faced old Eng lishman." There was a moral in that article to which it would be well for our own people to give all the consideration tbc importance of the suggestion re quires. If we could see ourselves as other people see us we no doubt might be benefitted thereby; at least so thiuks Middletown. the one the up of as a of in as to Mr a friend of a Communicated.] Mr. Editor :—In your issue of the 22d of January you gave place to communication headed "Religious pro scription," the writer correcting you in au error in which you had fallen in reference to the political speech made by Bishop Haveu in tbe city of Boston to a Sunday School Uuion (Methodistj [ was very much surprised when 1 found at the conclusion of that com munication you had accepted the in teuded correction in toto, for 1 felt you were better posted upon a subject that had received much attention from news papers, religious aud secular. I assert that Bishop Haven addressed at least fifty ministers instead of ten or twelve, and beside these an audience of one or two hundred. They not only heard it but applauded by clapping, stamping aod cries of "Amen " I assert, fur thermore, be had been iuvited to ad dress them previously. His speech occupied nearly twenty minutes and had it not been for the very late hour he might have indulged himself in this in nocent pastime much longer. It was now after 12 o'clock, yet there was time for his utterances to be endorsed by the audieooe. This waa done by a rising vo e. 1 correct this attempted correc tion from no spirit of unkiodness, but from a desire to see justice done, for well do I know if such utterances in favor of some prominent democrat bad eotne from one occupying a position of prom inence in a church for which Grant seems to have much antipathy, it would be sufficient to arouse the wrath of many Protestants. I am pleased to acknowledge. Mr. Editor, that, the Christian Advocate ami Methodist both rebuked Bishop Haven as he justly deserved. Let us sincerely and earnesly pray that any attempt of any man of a Christian ministry, be he Bishop, Priest or Deacon, to introduce politics in religion, thereby humiliating his high and honored office, may he be received with that detestation and cen a ; to tempt which such a course so justly de serves, and no attempt may be made to shield him from the unenviable position in which he may place himself.
