L. H. LANE, - SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT. 9, 1876. LOCAL AND STATE AFFAIRS. Items of Local Interest. Joseph MeCowcn, a Wilmington milkman, committed suicide, while under the influence of liquor, Tuesday night, by drowning him self in the Christiana. The barn and ether outbuildings on a farm ot Dr. Henty Ridgely's, near Milford, were burned Wednesday afternoon week. The loss is estimated at abont $3,000. A man named Frye created an excitement by flourishing a revolver at the polls in the Sixth ward, Wilmington, on Tuesday, and when some citizens undertook to take it from him it was discharged, wounding Frye in the head: The Delaware State Bible Society will hold its sixty-fourth annual meeting at Newark, in the Presbyterian Church, on Thursday next. Addresses will be delivered by Drs. J.H. Nixon Princeton, N. J. The Dnwyer'i Reunion. The annual Union Meeting will be held on to-morrow (Sunday) 10th inst., at Old Draw yer's Church. Preaching at 10} a. m., by Rev. Dr. Crowell, and at 3 p. m., by Rev. Dr. Patton. of Wilmington, and Sheldon, of Railroad Change*. A change in the time table of the Delaware Railroad went into effect on Monday last.— The "mixed" train which has been passing Middletown about 8 p. m., now leaves here at 5.17 p. m., going north ; going south it passes here at 6.20 n. m. The time of the mail trains remains unchanged. Political. James H. Myers, Esq., of Delaware City, will deliver an address on "the political is sues of the day'' at Odessa on Tuesday after noon next at 2 o'clock ; at Middletown, same evening at 7 o'clock and at Townsend on Wednesday at 2 o'clock. Sanford'* Performance. Quite a good audience greeted Sanford and his troupe at the Hall last Monday evening, to witness his conception of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." The troupe is well organized and show considerable talent in their respective characters, particularly Sanford as "Uncle Tom" and Miss Partington as "Topsy." On account of the absence of stage accommoda tions the play had to be curtailed in different sections, not so much, however, as to inter fere with the sense of the same. All those present were very well pleased with the en tertainment. Wilmington Election. The election for members of the city council and for inspectors and assistants was held in Wilmington on Tuesday. The result was a complete victory for the Repnblicans. On the vote for inspectors the Democrats carried but three wards—the first, second and tenth, and on councilmen they carried but two—the second and tenth. The total vote polled was, on councilmen 4877,—(369 short of that of 1875,) of which the Republicans have a ma jority of 1209. In 1876 the Independents, Liberals, and dissatisfied Republicans, to gether, carried the city by a majority of 68. The result on Tuesday is not regarded as a test of the relative strength of the two parties in the city, as there were many local issues which had much more than general politics to do with the elections The Republicans however, very much efjdtpd, of course.— The council will now stand 14 Republicans to The latter had a majority in are 7 Democrats, the last council. Deatta of a» Apieted Man. John Thomas dence of his one Summit Bridge, on Thursday afternoon.— Young Armstrong had been a great sufferer all his life, being afflicted with scrofula and rheumatism, and for the last five years with blindness. He has been confined to his bed for four years daring three of which he was unable to move a muscle, excepting only his right arm, which he could just raise. Owing to bis afflictions his body was never fnlly de veloped, and while his joints and some bones large enough for a full sized man, his body and limbs were badly dwarfed and he weighed scarcely more than fifty pounds and less than five feet tall though he was nearly twenty-two years of age. During all the time his mind was perfectly clear and he retained the use of. his mental faculties to the last. He fully realized his situation, and was cognizant of the approach of death, and gave ample assurances to his friends of complete preparation. ong died at the resi Eliason, Esq., near Armstr icle, E. were was Van Ambnrgls'* Clren* t*4 Menagerie. The New Great Golden Menagerie and Cir of Van Amburgh 4 Co., will exhibit at Middle'town on the afternoon and evening of September 20th. Van Ambnrgh's show is an immense affair, and gives good satisfaction to large audiences wherever they stop and per form, and we trust that the people in this vicinity, who are evidently eager for an en tertainment of this kind, will give them a grand old-fasbioned rally. The Lindsay (Can.) Post has the following good word to say about them : "This mammoth aggrega tion visited Lindsay yesterday, and brought with it many curiosities never seen here be lt was heralded about 9 o'clock in the CU3 fore. morning by a long procession of vans con taining rare animals and birds, headed by a grand band chariot, glittering with gold, and another of a smaller kind upon which, "the monarch of the forest" lay calmly at the feet of his keeper. The procession gave evidence from the long string of vans that there was a great deal to be seen inside the canvass. The meaagerie was fnlly as good as in former years and was well worth the price of admis sion, while the circus performance gave good satisfaction. The managers of this entertain meat are thorough gentlemen, and do every thing in their power to please their patrons." This is the first show of the season, and will undoubtedly be the last ; and it is every one's interest to remember the day and date —Middletown, Wednesday, September 20th. v.^0 THE COUNTY CONVENTION THE DEMOCRACY IN COUNCIL. COUNTY TICKET NOMINATED ADOPTION OF NEW RULES. LARGE MASS MEETING. In accordance with custom and the party rules a mass meeting of the Democrats of this county was held at New Castle, in the court room, on Saturday last. The meeting was a large and enthusiastic one and much interest wafT»%nifested in the proceedings by all pre sent. The assemblage was called to order at 2 o'clock, p. m., by William Reynolds, Esq., chairman of the last.county meeting and as Mr. C. P. Johnson, the secretary, was not present, Mr. Chas. D. Crutchfield, of the Wil mington Herald, was appointed secretary pro tempore. After the roll of the delegates to the convention had been called, Sam'l Townsend, Esq., called upon John O'Byrne, Esq., chair man of the County Executive Committee, for a report from the committee appointed at the last county meeting to revise the rules of the party, and for the result of the election held the 5th of August. Mr. O'Byrne reported that the said committee had drawn np a series of revised rules which had been submitted to the party voters at an election held for the purpose on the said 5th of August and that they had been voted down by a majority of 289 votes in the county, in view of which fact it appeared from that result that the people were anxious to so change the method of choosing their candidates that they should be elected by the vote of the people, the commit tee had adopted and appended to the report this resolution : on as Resolved, Th*t it is the opinion of the County Executive Committee that hereafter the members of the Legislature and Levy Court be nominated by ballot in the respec tive hundreds, and we hereby recommend the same. Signed, John O'Byrne, Chairman. John H. Puhl, Secretary. Mr. O'Byrne stated that this resolution had been adopted by the committee with but three dissenting voices. George Gray, Esq., asked the object of this report, what effect it was intended to have and what would be the result of its adoption. He claimed to speak only as an individual and asked only for information. He cared not how the nominations were made so that good tickets were formed. He had only the good of the party at heart and was indifferent to minor matters, desiring chiefly to avoid frictions in the party. The chair stated that the object of calling for the report was for its rejection or adoption by the meeting. Samuel Townsend said that the people had been, for years, fighting for nominations by ballot, and had always been prevented from acquiring them by the opposition of tricksters and would-be leaders, but that on the 5th of August last they had shown at the ballot box their opposition to convention nominations and made known their demands for the ballot. He argue! that the convention had fall and complete power to make the desired change, and that the delegates should at once adjourn and let the matter go back to the people and let them choose their candidates by ballot. Mr. John P. Springer said that this meet ing had nothing to do with this report, bat that it belonged to the convention to decide in regard to it. Mr. N. Williams moved that the whole sub ject be laid on the table and that the dele gates to the convention adjourn to the Grand Jury room. To this Mr. TownBend most strenuously and vociferously objected, declaring that it plan to cheat the people of the right to was a ballot nominations and that he for one pro tested against it. At this point it seemed as if almost every body bad something he wanted to say right then and there and all talked at once and each tried to drown his neighbor's voice.— The chairman rapped and pounded with his gavel and called at the top of his voice "Order, gentlemen," declaring he would cognize no one as entitled to the floor, and would entertain no motions until order was restored. He made about as mach fass as any one else and for a time confusion worse confounded held sway. At length, however, good humor prevailed, peace brooded like a dove over the troubled waters and all was still, and quiet reigned. In the midst of the bnbbnb Thos. M. Ogle made a motion that a committee of three be appointed by the chair to wait upon Governor Cochran and Senator Saulsbury, who he said were in the city, and invite them to a seat beside the chairman on th* platform Mr. Townsend thpught that all nonsense ; that those gentlemen were very respectable men, but they were citizens like the rest of us, and he saw no use in such a proceeding, but if it was to be done, he thought the committee should consist of the most ardent office seekers. This sally pro voked a shoot of laughter. Mr. Ogle, how ever, insisted on his motion, and it being adopted the chairman appointed Messrs. Ogle, O'Byrne and Thomas Bird as the committee. The motion for the adoption of the report of the Rale Committee, with their ballot re commendation appended, was then pat by the chairman and adopted by a tremendous ma jority. The delegates then on motion of Hon. B. T. Biggs retired to the Grand Jury room, on reaching which they organized by selecting Hon. B.T. Biggs, as president and E. Rey nolds and Lewis R. Springer, as secretaries. While awaiting the deliberations of the convention Hon. Eli Saulsbury was called upon and addressed the meeting from the judges' bench. We regret that onr space will not permit us to give an extract of the Hon. Senator's able speech. After the conclusion of the Senator's ad dress a vote of thanks and three rousing cheers were given him. Messrs. Geo. Gray, Wm. Reynolds, Samuel Townsend and State Senator Ray were called for but each de clined. Chas. N. McWhorter presented the follow ing preamble and resolution which after a slight discussion were adopted : Whereas, We, Democrats of New Castle connty, in meeting assembled, do believe that reform, like charity, should begin at home, and do believe that the essence of true Demo cracy is in a fall aDd fair expression of the will of the majority, and therefore do Resolve, That our members of the State Legislature «ball be, and hereby are instruct ed to use their influence towards effecting a change in the constitution and laws of the State, whereby all the offices of the Slate and county—except the Judges of Courts—may be made elective by the people. On tpotion of Thos. M. Ogle the word 'in structed' was changed to "recommended." Joseph Dean then offered the following : Resolved, That it is the sense of the Demo cracy of New Castle cotinty, that the Legisla ture of our State should, at it* next session, propose an amendment to our Constitution providing for election Districts, for Levy Court Commissioners and Members of the Legislature, instead of the present system of their having to be voted for throughout each county. Mr. Townsend moved to amend by adding "and that each hundred be made an election district. Mr. Dean accepted the amendment and the meeting voted down the resolution. Dr. G. T. Maxwell was then called for and re delivered a »hört address, which was inter rupted by the entry of the delegates. TBl CONVENTION'S BE PORT. By direction of the chairman, Eon. B. T. Biggs, the secretary, E. Reynolds, read the report of the convention, prefacing by saying that the convention had felt it to be its dnty to nominate a ticket for the Legislature and Levy Court in accordance with the object for which they had been elected, which, conse quently, they had done, and presented the following nominations for the ratification of the meeting : FOB STATE SENATOR.

CELEBRATED HAGERSTOWN, Ob Keller's Patent, [The Best] GRAIN, SEED and FERTILIZER IDE/XXjXjS. The only Drill that mil positively dis tribute properly all kinds of Grain, Seed and Fertilizers. A few of the points of superiority of this Drill over all others, are : 1st —Force Feed Arrangement for Sowing Grain, consisting of one gum and one iron roller—which is really the only force feed ar rangement made—giving you an even and regular distribution of grain at all times. Can sow any amount of grain, from a peck to two bnsbels. 2d —The Patent Spring Hoes, having gum springs on end of Drag-Bar, (being the only perfect gnm-spring arrangement) thereby doing away with the old wooden brake-pins, and allowing the Drill to pass any obstruc tion that the axle will go over without inter fering with working of 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, cornstalks or accumulation of grit and gravel, which make a Drill run heavy, is a needed improvement over all other drills. 5th —The Land Surveyor is as correct as it is possible to make one, having one face show ing 1-16 acre, and another face registering the acres. 6th —The Patent Axle is so constructed that the bearings are all on the outer and inner parts of Spindle, causing the Drill to ran lighter to the team, and more steady, than if bearing was all on center of spindle. 7th —All we can say for the Putent Guano or Fertilizer Attachment is that it is the only one that will sow or distribute properly all kinds of fertilizers in all conditions. The Best also has a Patent Hde Shifter, by which the Boots can be changed from straight zigzag line, or vice versa, while seeding along. The Grass Seed Attachment is perfect. In fact, it wonld be impossible to give all the good and superior points possessed by this Drill, without occupying too much space. Suffice it to say, our Drill is just what is claimed for it —the best — and has no equal. to For further information call on any of the following AGENTS. L. V. ASPRIL 4 SON, C. J. ALEXANDER, A. P.
