** ~ EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDLETOWN, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, FEB. 12, 1876. It now begins to look as if the next campaign 48 to be fonght out on old lines and instead of tbe "kissing and hand shaking," predicted by Senator Cameron in the centennial year, we shall the stump orators of the two par ties hurling at each other the old ac cusations and charges of war and ante war times and rehearsing tbe issues of the past. For all of which the people must thank Messrs. Blaine and Morton. sec Death of Reverdy Joünson. —Hon. Reverdy Johnson, the distinguished statesman and jurist, met with a fatal accident on Thursday evening. He had just dined with a number of gen tlemen at tbe executive mansion at the invitation of the Governor of Maryland, Hon. John Lee Carroll, at Annapolis, and a little after eight o'clock, P. M. he was found lying dead upon the cob ble stones of the carriage way under the porch of the exeentive mansion, caring to join the other gnests in their after dinner smoke he had stepped out upon the porch and it is supposed seized with vertigo and fell off tbe porch to the ground, his head striking the stones His skoll was fractured in two places and when found he had doubt less been dead some twenty or thirty minutes. Up to the hour of his death he had been in good health, and was then in Annapolis to argne a case be fore the Court of Appeals. Mr. John son was in his 80tb year. Not was The accounts given of tbe manner adopted by the Government of Spain to carry the recent elections in its favor will remind Delawareans of the means employed by the "best government the world ever saw" under the mild sway of the "late lamented" to control the special election for congressman in 1868, when Mr. Nathaniel Smithers was chosen (by Gen. Dix's soldiers) to represent—not Delaware,but the wishes of the Republican President,—in the National Legislature. In Spain, we are told, the most wholesale bribery was used ; that voting papers were forged by thousands and that Liberals who presumed to protest against these little irregularities were arrested and impri soned—they were "disloyal," of course. Men of war were sent to seaports of known Liberal proclivities that their guns might be useful in procuring a majority for the government And the result thus obtained is duly heralded as a proof of tbe favorable disposition of the people to the present government. Proceedings of Congress. —In the Senate on Monday a memorial was pre sented from the New York Board of Trade protesting against the attempt to resume specie payments until the re quisite conditions are ripe for it. Tbe resolution for the admission of P. B. S. Pinchback as Senator from Louisi ana was taken up and debated, Messrs. Thurman, of Ohio, and Christiancy, of Michigan, opposing it, and Senator Howe, of Wisconsin, favoring it. In the House Mr. Fort, of Illinois, intro duced a bill to make the 14th of Feb ruary (Abraham Lincoln's birthday) a national holiday. A bill was also pre sented to repeal the specie resumption act of 1874 and to substitute legal-ten ders for national baok notes. The House Committee refnsed to concur in tbe Senate's amendments to the act to pay the interest on the 3.65 bonds of tbe District and a committee was ap pointed to investigate the expenditures and management of the affairs of the District. On Tuesday the death of Senator Ferry, of Connecticut, was announced and several Senators indulged in eulo gistic obituary speeches on the occasion. But little else was done. In the House a bill was passed repealing the bank rupt act of 1867 with all its amend ments. The death of Senator Ferry was announced in the House also. next day. Nearly the whole session of j the House was taken up with a debate | a on the Diplomatic appropriation bill. In the Senate on Wednesday the Centennial Appropriation bill was taken up and addresses made in it9 favor and some against it. Several amendments were proposed and . rejected. Mr. Norwood, of Georgia, expressed a de sire to speak on the bill and out of courtesy to him it was laid over till ! Tha Acquittal of Landis. —The hitherto boasted reputation of "Jersey Justice" was sadly impaired by the verdict of the jury—given on Saturday night last—in the case of W. K. Landis, who has been on trial for some days past for the killing of Uri Carruth the editor of the Vineland (N. J.) In dr.pendent. Popular indignation waxes strong not because Landis was acquit* j ted, but because of the flimsy grounds | on which the verdict of acquittal was given. That Carruth was shot by j Landis could not be denied, and a denial the oft repeated, and too oft successful, Jodge of insanity. This was the main drift of tbeir argument and the intelli gent (?) jury accepted their theory that : the prisoner was insane just loDg enough —neither before nor after—to kill bis was not attempted, and, even through : the prisoner's counsel did attempt to that the death of Carruth was prove caused by unskilful surgery, yet the chief corner stone of their defense was «nun, and just enough insane to bnnt up aud kiU the man he wanted 10 Tt j s because this insanity plea ia set up so often, and is so frequently allowed to prevail in clearing murderers, that the public are indignant that it should have been given as the excuse for acquitting Landis. After such a verdict, on such for the acquittal of Taylor, Wood grounds, the members of the Bridgton more find fault with the next old and par ac of jury can no New Castle or Dover juries, of Dela ware, ward and West. Had the Landis jury come into court and given a verdict of "justifiable homocide" nobody beyond a few "independent" newspaper editors would have found a particle of fault with them for so doing. That Landis' provocation was sufficient to justify him in appealing to any means of redress short of killing his man, is generally conceded even by those who most bit terly condemn his acquittal. The mere possession of a paper does not confer upon the possessor an un bridled license to assail the character He the M. the out of, and abuse every man to whom he may have taken an aversion, yet there is a class of (so-called) journalists who seem to regard the "liberty of the press" as synonomous with license for slander. These publishers usually style tbeir papers "independent" and them selves "enterprising" and "progres Such was the character of Car stve. ruth and the paper be published. Oc casionally the victims of these slander ers' malice become provoked beyond endurance and knowing they can get no redress in law, for these wholesale traducers take good care to keep within tbe purlieus of the law, take the matter into their own hands and treat tbeir abusers to a horse whipping or pistol balls. We will not say that shooting is always the best way to treat these abusive editors, but when a man as sumes the position of a newspaper buc caneer and turns his hand against every nfan—when it will pay him to do io—he onght not to ask the protection of society and the courts, but should look out for himself and take without complaining what he has brought upon himself. to in to of a of Amnesty Is defined by Webster as "an act of oblivion," and whether the bill granting amnesty to the South is passed by Con gress or not, the speeches of crimina tion aDd recrimination have sunk into oblivion the character once borne by James G. Blaine of a conservative,con sistent statesman, and recalls forcibly the contests of Blame and Butler and old Ben's extract from the " Heathen Chinee" : "For ways that are dark and tricks that are vain, I name for proficiency James G. Blaine." But for Blaine's mad desire to deprive Morton of his only source of notoriety —the stirring up of strife—he would to-day be enjoying the reputation ac quired during the war—conservative and consistent. Now, amnesty, accord ing to Webster, will be granted to Mr. Blaine's ere while assumed character, aDd his Presidential chances have gone "where the woodbine twineth. what of the amnesty bill? Will Con gress rise above the mean issues of party strife and pass the bill? so that in celebrating tbe One Hundredth An niversary of our fathers' declaration of American Independence, no descend ant of those ^illustrious sires shall be left out from the privilege of an equal share in the centennial festivities? The people at large are desirous that amnesty should be granted, tbe "bloody shirt burned, and the sores of the war healed ; aDd however much Presidential aspir ants may hope to win popular favor by hindering the one, flaunting the other, aDd probing the third, the good sense of the American people will finally grant that amnesty to them and their acts which will prove the greatest bless ing to all—tbe amnesty of oblivion. War naturally engenders wroDgs from which neither side in a great strife arc exempt, and tbe civil war in tbe United States was no exception.

I Much Ado about a Little. —In a communication published in the Wil mington Herald on Wednesday, Mr. : Samuel Townsend pretends to hold us personally responsible for the language used and tbe assertions made in an claiming "A Union of lakes, a Union of lands, A Union that naught ere can sever ; A Union of hearts, a Union of hands. The American Union forever.' : anonymous letter which appeared in the Transcript last week over the synonyme "Middletown," and to which Mr. Townsend'« letter is nominally a reply. He addresses this reply to ns and makes eertain allusions to us. We do not Tt to deny that the publisher of a paper is responsible—io a legal point of view— for what appears iu its columns, to a certain extent, but it is absurd to pre tend to charge upon him the opinions j and assertions of correspondents simply because their communications are print of ed in his paper over fictitions names. Very many persons object to haviug their names published iu connectiou with their articles—not because they are afraid or ashamed to do so, but be cause they are a little sensitive about having their names appear in the As regards the prudence or papers. taste of such a course we have nothing It would, however, save much to say. unpleasantness arising from misunder standing if all letter writers—especially send's communications, as he says, always have at least that credit. Many when they wish to eDgage in controver sies with others, would append tbeir own names to their letters. Mr. Town of our best writers, however, will not do it, but prefer to ose a vom de plume. All this Mr. Townsend knows full well and he knows also that, if his personal character is assailed and ho feels ag grieved thereat, he can always obtain the name of the writer of the objectioa able article on application at the office of the paper in which it was published. As to shielding tbe writer of the first communication to which Mr. Townsend refers—we did no more than any other publisher would have done—we printed the letter as it was written and with held tho writer's name at his request Mr. Townsend again harps on his first assertion that we did not publish an acoount of the proceedings of that meeting, and his argument is that the report of the meeting was not attested by the signatures of the president and secretary This scarcely needs an au swer. It is not one time iD a hundred that reports are so published, and if it had been at all necessary that it should have been done, Mr. Townsend's re flection falls upon the officers of the | meeting rather than upon us. The ; customary way in which reports of ! meetings are obtained is through re- i porters sent for the purpose and the ac- i counts written by them are published ; and accepted, generally, as genuiue. ■ If Mr. Townsend's theory is | then very few reports ot meetings of : any kind are correct, even the "pro-1 ceedings of congress" and of our legis- j latures as published in the daily papers must go for nothing : for they are not attested by tbe clerks and presiding officers. To Mr. lowosend s beautiful per sonal allusions we will say nothing. They may pass for what they are worth, and to his inquiries we presume the writer of the communication to which his letter referred will give tbe answer himself. If he does not it will be time ' enough for us to attend to them here after. Mr. Townsend should dow address to the Morning Herald an answer to a ... _ j communication in that paper on Tues day, signed "An eye witness." ! J J ; I Communicated.] Errors in Deeds Mortgages. It is astonishing how careless and ; thoughtless men are in the matter of ■ • j j . , , having deeds, mortgages, leases and other legal documents written It . . would seem men take it tor granted that any one who chooses can do this business eorrectly ; whereas, many per sons who undertake it do not know the 1 sons wno unaeriaKe it ao not Know tbe ; force and effect of ordinary English, ! much less the force and effect of legal language. Many persons seem to think i if they have a paper filled up by some ; one in writing, it is legally correct; whereas, if the papers written by most ! conveyancers were put to the test of | legal examination not one half of such I papers would stand the test, and, at, this moment, without doubt, ! . » i J j persons hold papers seemingly correct ; that are in reality worthless. I am lead to write thus from reading - a a . I . , c XJT .P the extract, below, taken from a W.l- | sembly recently, by law, authorized tbe city authorities to aDDoiot a Register of Deeds for Wilmington, to copy all deeds recorded in New Castle which conveyed property in that city ; in duty the Register, examining the deeds found there were numerous mistakes , , . ana errors therein. ihe newspaper alluded to says: "It has been found that many deeds t. • •V are inaccurate, it ts curious to see upon tbe registry books the overlapping of properties when drawn aocording to the terms of their respective deeds. This overlapping varies from a few mington newspaper. TbeGeueral As inches to as many as fifty feet in the , measurement of the lot. In one case it was found that two men were living peacefully and inno cently, each upon the property of the other according to tbe terms of their deeds which contained errors so seri ous as to lead to this anomalous situa tion. A second case was also discov ered nearly similar to this one. Id another case by the terms of the deed bed of the street formed a large part of the lot represented The deed for the church property at the corner Sixth and West streets located it upon the southwest corner, instead of the south east, where St Peters' Church actually stands. [Communtoated.] Me. Editor.—"T ruth," in your last i issue does the fair thing, by accepting : , „l; l • 5 ! my correction t» toto, which denied ; that Bishop Haven offered, and n errors may ' creep into a deed, without any intent to defraud. No such intent was found in any of these cases." It would seem, therefore, that too | much care canoot be exercised by those interested in such matters.
