EDWARD REYNOLDS, Editor. MIDDLETOWN. DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 15, 1876. DEMOCRATIC NOMINATIONS. FOB PRESIDENT, SAMUEL J. TILDEN. Of New York. FOR VICE-PRESIDENT, THOMAS A. HENDRICKS, Of Indiana. FOR SHERIFF, ISAAC GRUBB. FOR CORONER, . DAVID C. ROSE. Governor Tilden was notified on Tuesday of his nomination for President by the committee appointed for the pur pose by the St. Louis Convention He accepted the nomination, and said he would write n formal letter of accept ance. __ Don Carlos, the Pretender, who was recently defeated in an possession of the Spanish throne, and driven from that country, is travelling about the United "States. He arrived at Washington, from Richmond, on Sun day evening. He doesn't seem to be creating much of a furore. The war in the East between Turkey and her revolted provinces is being proseented with a great deal of earnest ness and energy on both sides. Sev eral severe battles have been fought al ready, In which, if the information that is received in this country is correct, the Servians have been badly worsted, and suffered much loss. attempt to obtain Gov. Hayes don't want a second term — one will be enough. Of course, so said Grant in 1868, and so many a can didate for many other offices has said before him. If the dear people will only let them get in once they will never! ask them to do it never, no again, but like the camel in oldÆsop's fable, ones let them in and they will do all they can to stay there. The report that Judge David Davis of Illinois, hod declared in favor of Hayes and Wheeler, turns out to have been a Republican canard gotten up for political effect. So far from favoring the Republican nominees, the Judge is said to have come out openly and square ly for Tilden and Hendricks. It seems that in speaking of the action of the Cincinnati convention he said the nom ination of Hayes was about the best the Republicans could make, and this at once heralded abroad as a declaration in favor of that ticket. was Hon. Lot M. Morrill having at last made up his mind to accept the Secre taryship of the Treasury, Hon. Jas. G. Blaine was, last week, appointed U. S. senator by the Governor of Maine to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Morrill. Of course, Mr. Blaine at once accepted, and we shall soon see what sort of a senator the distinguished "parliament arian and prince of leaders" , will make. But who will take his place in the House to play bluff with the democrats and taunt tbe Southerners and make bloody shirt speeches " to draw out re plies from Hill and Tucker in order to "make them say things to injure the Democratic party and make capital for the Republican party ? " A foolish young girl—said to be an Italian, and at any rate she is called by a foreign sounding name which may be Italian for all wo know to the contrary —has just succeeded in getting her name in the papers by walking across Niagara river, opposite Clifton, on a tight rope. She is said to have crossed from the American to the Canadian side in eight minutes—"the fastest time ever made, well" this feat of this foolish girl is all well enough, and she receives the ap plause of many people for her bravery and daring, &c. And if she had missed her footing and fallen into the rapids, that would have been the end of her, and the same people who applauded her success would have condemned her fool hardiness in risking her life for nothing. As "all is well that ends The "heated term" seems to have extended all over the country. From East and West, North and South, couie long and loud complaints of the heat— men and beasts sweltering under tbe rays of the sun, which poors down with more violence than has been felt before for yean. From ninety to a hundred in the shade has been the range of tbe weather indicators for nearly three weeks, and from all over the country come reports of prostrations from tbe heat—men falling in their tracks, una ble to stand tbe virulence of tbe sun's rays. Hundreds have thus fallen to rise no more, and deaths from sunstroke are more numerously reported than ev er before. Last Sunday has been pro nounced (and denounced) as tbe hottest day of the season It may have been so, but when there are so many days of such melting weather it is hard to tell when one day is hotter than another. Withdrawal of Fisher.— Owing to the strenous opposition to the confirma tion of Judge Fisher as U. S. Attorney for Delaware, the President a few days ago—at Mr. Fisher's own request, it is said—withdrew his name and substi tuted that of Mr. J. H. Hoffecker, of ; Wilmington. Mr. Hoffecker is a young lawyer, partner of S. M. Harrington, Esq., and of medium ability. He is a clever young man, by no means the equal either in intellectual ability or professional skill of Mr. Higgins,whom he succeeds, but like the presidential nominee of the Republican party he is not well enough known to have any harm said of him, which is considered a great thing in his favor in these days of administrative corruption and venal ity. The appointment, however, does not suit the friends of Mr. Higgins who cannot see any justifiable reason for ousting him. Hence the party jar is no settled than it was before. Some nearer think that Mr. Higgins' advocacy of Secretary Bristow at Cincinnati sealed his doom ; while others assert that too honest and strict a discharge of his offi cial duties in the prosecution of ex-Col lector Nolen and other precious pets of the Administration is feared. Hence his decapitation. This latter may have had something to with it, but, unless much mistaken in the man, from acquaintance with Mr. Hoffecker, he will not lend himself to do what be believes to be a direliotion of duty we are our And now it is Postmaster General Jewell that has stepped down from his high stool and out of the Presidential Cabinet. He "resigned !" Only a few days ago on being "interviewed" in re gard to his reported intention of resign ing he said he "wasn't a-going to do any such thing. He just expected to stsy right where he was till next March and continue his work of lopping off offenders. without his hoBt. Grant has seen about that, and changed that little programme. It must have been rather surprising to the "General" to hear the President say,without previous monition, that his "resignation would be accepted, course, he tendered it at once. How could he help it? And now he has gone the way that Bristow went. Nor is that all. It is said the President has intimated to the managers of the trea sury department that the removal and disobarge of any and all clerks and as sistants who are known to have been friendly to the Kentucky secretary at Cincinnati would be well pleasing iu his sight. Of course, if that be true, those men will have to go. Right ! These fellows should be made to know that Ulysses rules and whosoever dares to think otherwiso than as he directs mast suffer tbe penalty of their temer ity. Off with their heads. So much for Bristow. The way of the trans gressor (of Grant's rules) is hard. Hon esty may be the best policy, but it won't keep a man in Grant's cabinet. Poor fellow, he reckoned Of Gov. Hayes' Acceptance. —At last, after nearly a month's study on it, Gov. R. B. Hayes has succeeded in getting up a letter of acceptance of the Repub lican nomination for President. After expressing his concurrence in the prin ciples of the Cincinnati platform, he an nounces his determination, if elected-; to ignore the doctrine "to the victors belong the spoils," and to make his ap pointments to office on the rule that "honesty, capacity and fidelity consti tute the only real qualifications to of fice. makes as strong promises of reform as Ulyses did in 1872 and would probably keep them equally as well. On the cur rency question Mr Hayes expresses himself as in favor of specie resumption as soon as possible. All tbe hard times and financial troubles arc blamed on the In regard to the civil service he "irredeemable and fluctuating curren cy," and tbe sooner, he thinks, we get rid of it tbe better. In speaking of the South, one might almost think, (were it not for the fact that promises are so easily made) that Mr. Hayes is in no way iu sympathy with the Administra tion ard that Blaineism and Mortonism were abhorrent to him. So fairly does he promise and so sympathetically does he speak of the sufferings of the people of tbe South. "Their first necessity," be says, "is an intelligent and honest administration of government, which will protect all tbe citizens in all their rights/ will meet the approval of every intelli gent and unbiased man in the country. But the want does not attach to the South only, but to the North, East and West as well. The whole country feels the need of intelligence and honesty in the government. Heaven knows we have suffered enough from the want of it in the last eight years, and that is one giant reason why tbe people want a change in the administration. While Gov. Hayes covers himself up very nicely with the ljon skin of fair promises the ass' ears of Grantism will stick out and betray the true character of the animal beneath. One of the easiest things in the world to do is to make fair promises ; but to keep them is another matter. The Republican party platforms in all the Presidential campaigns from 1860 to 1876, have teemed with déclarations of the good they meant to perform, but not one of those hosts of promises bas been kept. Their vehement protestations of civil service reform, which were the burden of their Philadelphia platform in 1872, have been carried out by Grant with a vengeance—Belknap and Robeson in the cabinet; Bristow and Jewell over thrown aDd tamed out because of their honesty and hostility to official corrup tion ; Sheppard retained in the Presi dent's confidence after the exposure of his rascalities and villainies, and nomi nated for District Commissioner to the That is an assertion which ; S. Treasury just at the beginning of an elective campaign, for contending for a seat in the Senate to which that body long ago decided he had no right.— These arc a few samples of tbe manner utter disgust of even a Radical Senate; Pinchback given $20,000 from the U. in which the fair promises of civil ser vice reform have been kept by the Re publican party under the administration of President Grant As they baVe done they will continue to do Mr. Hayes well himself, and honestly may mean intend to do all he promises, but he will no more be able to do as he wishes The than his predecessors have been, man is not strong enough to break up the rings and cliques that will surround him and that have so long manipulated the government. The only sure way to get rid of the corruptionists and make a clean reform in all branches of the civil service is for the people to put another party in power by the election of the man who has proved himself by his works to be a genuine reformer— Sam'l J.

Gov. Hendricks on Resumption.— In an interview in the Nashville Ameri can, Gov. Hendricks, in reply to a question whether the repeal of the sumption act was a condition of his ac ceptance, said : "Oh, no ; there are no conditions expressed. I wish to see the demo cratic House, by its own act, absolutely settle the question of interpretation of the platform of currency The day of adjournment is near, and I would like to urge them to take immediate action. It is doe to their constituents, particular ly the people of the West. With that clause interpreted by the unequivocal act of the House there remains nothing in the platform that admits of two con structions. I think they will repeal the resumption clause in the House this week and throw it into the Senate, which will then have to bear the re sponsibility of its defeat, as well as the responsibility of non-concurrents in the House's retrenchment bill, and conse quent dead lock, giving the democracy two most valuable aids in the fall elec tions. The people will sustain the House's actioD in both respects.* * *It is unfortunate that Mr. Dorsheimer ac cepted Mr. Ewing's interpretation of the financial plank and drew an issue on a reading that the plank itself did not admit of, but the repeal by the democratic House of the resumption clause will settle all this. We will go before the people with a declaration of principles that cannot be mistaken. It is bold, clear and aggressive—free trade free schools, home rule, absolute settle ment of all war issues by the result of the war, return to peace basis and nat ional legislation, and a removal of all artificial obstacles to resumption of spe cie payment—in one word, reform. Gov. Tilden did not write the platform." re The Press on Gov. Hayes' Letter. —In commencing on Gov. Hayes' let ter accepting the presidential nomina tion the New York Herald says "it is a fair, discreet document, and shows that the Governor is well advised." The Times says "it is the manly, frank and explicit declaration of a sincere and able man " The Tribune says "it utters a clear, manly, unequivocal declaration of principle which embody the strongest desires of all honest and thinking American citizens." The World says the most obvious criticism on the letter is "that it has been care fully constructed by the party managers for political effect, and that there is not one hearty, outspoken word in it from beginning to end." The New York Sun says "it is a weak letter, notwith standing the fact that sj many politi cians have assisted him in getting it up. Mr. Hayes is not the man for the times —not the reformer needed by the coun try." The Philadelphia Times says "Gov. Hayes' letter is. the rosiest, happiest paper we have read in many a long day." The Inquirer says "the manly language in which Gen. Hayes couches his acceptance of the nomina tion gives a satisfactory earnest of the manliness with which,if elected, he will fill the presidential office." The Press says "the letter strikes a keynote in every paragraph. The Philadelphia North American says "the letter is manly and positive, leaving no possible doubt concerning his views upon tbe question whereupon he tonebes. our mind tbe paper is deficient in but one thiDg. We must fight this cam paign squarely upoD the issue of pro tection against free trade. It is to be regretted that our candidate could not have added to an already admirable let ter some declaration that be was in sympathy with bis party iu this vital matter." as his most Dartial friend, but his elec tion is but a continuance in power of the men who have controlled the poli cies and the appointments of Grant's ad ministration. If elected can he disre gard Gov. Morton's power in Indiana, Cameron's sway in Pennsylvania, or Conkling's lordship in New York? They say he is an honest roan. Was not the said of Gen. Grant four years ago? In a speech which I made in the Acad emy of Mnsic, the first of my canvass for Governor, I said that if left alone Grant would make a better President, ! but the surroundings, the influences, j and the political power that would con- j trol his administration would bring upon the people the ills we now deplore. I have been informed that during the next weck l will be formally notified of my nomination on the ticket at St. Louis, I will then announce my action, and I trust it will be satisfactory to the dem ocracy of Indiana." To Gov. Henpricks Makes a Speech.— In response to a serenade after the dem ocratic ratification meeting in Indianap olis, Indiana, on Saturday night, Gov. Hendricks made a brief address, closing in tho following language : "I would not say a word against Gov. Hayes. I would speak of him as well same Oh Oh Our New York Letter. New York, July 8, 18Î6. A COSTLY CELEBRATION. The week has been almost one long holiday. On Sunday evening it menced among the large class whose patriotism largely outweighs their piety, and even now numerous traces of the grand jubilation greet the eye on all sides in addition to the myriad head aches which remain to those who cele brated "not wisely but too well," and which, though invisible, are equally mementoes of the occasion, amount of money that New York has poured as a libation upon her country's altar, in the shape of fire works, etc., cannot be closely computed, but must have been immense. I have heard the value of the flags and decorations alone estimated at $100,000 (though Ï should not want to guarantee the correctness of the statement) and the various pyrotechnics must have amounted to more than as much more. com The USHERING IN THE NEW AGE. The festivities culminated on the night of the 3d, when the city fairly flamed. Everybody was out of doors, rejoicing noisily or more quietly admir ing the brilliancy of the scene. Mil lions of Chinese lanterns and numerous gas jet frames, representing patriotic designs—eagles, mottoes and the talis manic figures, "76" illuminated the dark streets and brought out the full beauties of the festooned drapery. The event of the evening was intended to be the grand torch light procession that marched through the principal streets and finally brought up in Union Square, wbieh was the central point of attrac tion. This procession though very long was straggling and irregular which, hnwever, was amply atoned for by the splendor of the midnight festival. Shortly before twelve o'clock the com bined military hands who had accom panied the procession to the number of, about three hundred, together with* the torch bearers, arranged themselves on long platforms, prepared for their reception, and after a few minutes of expectancy, during which the assem hied multitude became breathlessly still, the midnight bell proclaimed the "day of a hundred years." It seems as though your readers must hare heard the noise that followed. All tbe bells, and steam whistles in this and of of cannon neighboring cities, raDg, boomed and shrieked in concert, drowning the cheers of the crowd and the music of the 300, who, at the same instant, struck up "Hail Columbia". Simul taneously with this, rockets went up from the four corners of the square and along its centre spouted Roman candles, "flowerpots" "volcanoes," colored lights and the whole catalogue of orna mental fire places. The display of fire works was continued till day break and, as may he imagined, but little sleep was to be bad that night. SIGHTS IN THE HARBOR. The Fourth itself, was on the whole quietly observed : in fact there were thousands who had so completely played themselves out the day before that they were obliged willy-nilly, to keep pretty still and rest. In the evening there was a reception on a much more exten sive scale of tbe pyrotechnic display. As this could not he well seen from any point in town I took a steamer and went down the harbor to where a gen eral view could be obtained. From this standpoint the scene was beyond description. On three sides of us blazed the lights of Brooklyn, New York and the Jersey shore, while out to seaward on the fourth side, lay masses of cloud in which lightning played continually. A thousand rockets writhed upward looking like the upreared crests of gigantic fiery serpants. Countless balls of fire rose and fell against the dark a is in sky and were reflected in the waters of the bay. Red lights burning in the streets of the town threw a glare far up into the heavens bringing out towers and banners, and giving the effect of so many conflagrations. So striking was the suggestion at the time when "The rockets red glare, The bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night That our flag was still there." that on some one's breaking out into the inspiring strains of the national anthem, the sound was taken up by the whole company and the hymn sung through with magnetic power. THE RECEDING BUSINESS CENTRE. The recent opening of the new jew elry palace of Black, Starr & Frost, for a whole generation known as Ball, Black & Company, besides pointing to this brighter prospect recalls a chapter in New York's early history and the enormous growth of that city. Away back in the beginning of the oentury, before our second war with England, and before the memory of this genera tion, there was opened down on Broad way near Wall street the little jewelry shop which was the beginning of the present magnificient establishment A little lower down, at number 55, was the fur trading shop of John Jacob Astor Wall street itself showed no signs of ever turning into a menagerie of "bulls" and "bears," but was a quiet street of residences,churches and stores. Even Broadway began to get pretty thin a few squares above, and turned into a country road between cornfields long before it got up to the new quarters of the concern. The little jewelry store was honest and smart and prospered from the beginning. Four times in its existence thus far, the business has beeD obliged to follow the receding cen tre of trade, which is constantly push ing toward the head of Manhattan Is land. The last change brings them into an elegant structure on Fifth ave nue, and 28th street, which their open ing display turns into a vary Centennial Exposition.

The Turkish commanders on the Servian frontier have been ordered to abstain from attacking the insurgents until additional reenforements arrive. The attempt by alleged bold relations of the late A.

The loss in the State of Iowa by the recent floods will amount to a million dollars. The loss in Warren County alone is three hundred thousand dollars. Daniel H.

The comptroller of the currency has called upon all national banks for state ments of their condition at the close of business on Friday, the 30th day of Jane, 1876. The Servians are embarrassed by a scarcity of funds, and have issued a "forced" paper currency, to enable them to carry on a war upon which they have just entered. The thermometer marked one hundred and ten degrees at Trenton, N. J., on Saturday, and in a militia encampment near that city one hundred and seventy soldiers were prostrated by the heat.

The Commissioners for the district of Columbia having jnst examined the books of James S Wilson, Treasurer of the District, who unceremoniously left the city two weeks ago, discover that he is a defaulter to the amount of between $6,000 and $7,000, which is fully secured by responsible bondmen. The democratic State central com mittee met at Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday and decided upon a vigorous campaign, to be begun about August 15 A letter from Senator Thurman was read.

Mr. Henry Watterson, of the Louis ville, Ky., Courier-Journal, accepts the nomination for Congress almost unani mously offered him. It is understood he will have no opposition in his own party, but it is rumored that the re publicans will nominate B.H.

Tyner, of Indiana, who was on Tuesday nominated by the President for Postmaster General in the place of Hon. Marshall Jewell,was born at Brookville, Ind , January 17,1826. He became a 'lawyer by profession. From 1857 to 1861 he was Secretary of the State Senate, and in 1860 he was a republican presidential elector In 1861 he first became connected with the post office system, serving as special agent of the department from that year to 1866. At a special election in 1869 he was elected a Representative in Con gress in place of Daniel D. Pratt, the present commissioner of internal reve nue, who had just been elected to the Senate. He served three full terms in the House, being twice re-elected, retiring in March, 1875, without having been a candidate for the present Congress. During his last term he was a member of the committee od appropriations. On leaving the House last year he became Second Assistant Postmaster General. A Failue. —The new bell on Inde pendence Hall, Philadelphia, which weighs 13,000 pounds and cost $5,000, has been examined by experts, who express the opinion that it is not cast in the proper shape, and that the tone lias not the volume or quantity to he expected from a bell of its size and cast. The bell will be removed and recast. And now says the wicked World "The country waits with some anxiety to see Mr. Grant take the field with all his relations and charge into a cal-dc sac full of savage Sioux." m Political Notes. Brick Pomeroy won't support Tilden, and some think this makes Tilden's election sure. Because Charles Francis Adams has declared for Tilden, the Troy Times calls him "a stilted old humbug." The New York Commercial is anxi ous to hear of Sergeant Bates carrying the flag into the Big Horn country. Governor Gustav Keener, of Illinois, pports Tilden and invites his liberal Republican German friends to do like wise. of A. a su "The signature is the signature of R. B. Hayes, but the sentiments are the sentiments of Carl Schurz." That s what the Springfield Republican says about it. It is not improbable that Mr. Sey will again bo the Democratic can didate for Governor of New York, a strong movement being now apparent in that direction. Campaigns begin early in the West. The Illinois Democratic State Conven tion to be held at Springfield, July 2/ The Missouri Republican convention will be held at Jefferson City August 9. Judge Charles Geopp, one of the original and ablest of the New York re publicans, who was elected judge of the Marine Court last fall, says that he "seeks the welfare of the Union in the election of Gov. Tilden as Chief Magis trate " Mr. Jewell takes it philosophically. He is represented as saying that "if the action of the President carried with it any reflection upon his integrity or character he would have reason to com plain ; but, under the circumstances, he is glad to be relieved of the burden •f the office." Congressman Vance, of Ohio, who has just returned to Washington from a week's trip to that State, reports a wonderful amount of enthusiasm, and confidence amount the Democrats there. The campaign will be the most vigor ous ever conducted in that State, and the general feeling among Democrats there is that Tilden is sure of an elec tion, and that Hayes will be beaten in bis own State. Amongst the speakers at the Tilden and Hendricks ratification meeting in Cincinnati, were Mr. Frederick Has saureck and Hon. Charles Reenielin, two of the most promineut German politicians in Ohio. Mr. Reemelin said he had voted for Gov Hayes every lime he had run for office, but he would not vote for him for President, because he knew he had not the necessary cali bre for the time and the occasion. The New York Tribune, which sup ports Hayes and Wheeler, says : "Re publicanism in Louisiana is a sham, and worse than a sham. It has no claim upon the confidence of honest men, and deserves only defeat The party is stronger without than with it. It will be well to have it understood that the support of the Republican Pre sidential ticket does not by any means include responsibility for or sympathy with tbe Pinchback-Packard alliance in Lonisiana. mour How idle for Gov. Hayes to talk abont his purpose to run the Govern ment, if he is elected on reform prin ciples. He cannot change the Repub lican machine or unseat the present leaders of the party, who from Blaine to Boss Shepherd, Spencer to Babcock are at work for his election. He is not a man of the strength of character, per sonal weight, and resoluteness of will to overcome these men, now controlling the Republican party, even if we take him at his word and believe that he desires to do it. The only hope of re form is in the election of Tilden a clean sweep of the Government, and the in troduction of new principles of admin istration and new men in high office.— N. TSun. Ciieese Production. —The State of New York alone has now nearly 1,000 cheese manufactories, which use the milk of more than 250,000 cows, mak ing therefrom 80,000,000 pounds of cheese, which is 1,000 pounds for every three cows. The cheese production of the whole United States is now over 25,000,000 pounds, of which 96,000, 000 are exported. England scarcely exports 25,000,000 pounds, while little Holland, which used to be the principal cheese producing country of the world, exports at present 60,000,000. The Washington Republican says it cost $1,000,000 to whip the Seminoles and it will cost us 2,000,000 before the present war is ended. Postmaster General Jewell resigned last Tuesday.
