EDWARD REYNOLDS, Eoitob. ■IDDI.ETOWS, DEL. SATURDAY MORNING, OCT. 7, 1876. State Elections took place this week in Colorado and Georgia. In the former the entire Republican State ticket was elected by a majority of about 2000. That party also has a majority in both branches of the Legis lature, which will elect two United States Senators and three Presidential electors. The victory of the Republicans in Colorado is more than set off by an overwhelming triumph by the Demo crats in Georgia. In this State the tire Democratic tioket was elected by a very large majority, though the vote light. The Legislature, which will choose a U. S. Senator in place of Hon. Thos. Norwood whose term will expire the 4th of March next, is largely Democratic. Tbe election was very quiet and peacable not a single disturb ance" occurring in tho whole State. Since the above was put in type later returns have been received from which it appears that the boasted Republican in Colorado are all hnmbug, en was on successes and that the result in the State is very much in doubt, the election being very close, with the odds in favor of the dem Âs several democratic counties to hear from tbe result may yet be a democratic victory. ocrata. are The Elections Next Week. —The State elections in the great States of Ohio, Indiana, Iowa and West Vir ginia will take place next Tuesday.— Tbe result in these States will be re garded as indicative, if not almost de cisive, of the result of the £rand battle in November. For weeks past the most intense enthusiasm has prevailed in Indiana and Ohio, and both parties have been engaged in hard labor in en deavoring to rally to their standard the voters of the States. In Indiana espe cially has the campaign been exciting and enlivening. The most prominent speakers from all over the country have been stumping the State. Meetings— both day and night—have been held in every oounty until the whole State has been almost one grand mass meeting. As the day for the election draws nesr the eyeB of the whole country are turned thitBerward and millions of hearts beat anxiously. Ere'the Tran script again appears the grand battle will have been fought and the victory won by the one or the other, and per haps the fate of the nation decided. A Countryman's Views of City Life Philadelphia, Oct. 3rd, 1876. Thia town has seen the elephant. Centennial pilgrims everywhere— houses filled to repletion and men seek ing places whereon to lay their heads. Like the Mussulman at the shrine of Mahomet, like the tramp in the days of peach blossoming at Middletown, and very like the western grasshopper, in festing all spots and eating substance wherever they alight, carpet-baggers in swarms are here. From the forests of Michigan and tbe frontier of Texas, the British provinces, men rugged, stalwart and bronzed, accompanied by women, many lovely as a poet's dream, shaming the puny efforts of man by form and feature of exquisite moulding, to imitate by sculptured ef fort, astonishing the metropolitan for once, at least, by the gathered beauty concentrated from rural provinces. A scientific man exclaimed when Gênerai Newton blew up Hell-gate, that the man was a prophet. What, is Mr. Long, Agent for tbe Centennial Christian homes ? Tbe man has a for tune if it is an individual enterprise, (and we are told it is.) He is con Btantly besieged, daily and hourly. We have seen at twelve o'clock at night three or four hundred in and around his office, waiting anxiously, weary with travel for a place. In formed by some of the parties them selves, he charges the boarding-house keepers ten per cent per day for each guest be furnishes him with; a royal ty of fifty cents additional ia demanded as retainer from those he is kind enough to supply with lodgers Therefore if they run away tbe first day the reverened gentleman still lives to fight for the remainder. Tbe 12th & 16th street passenger railroad must have carried to his door not less than three thousand, and still they come. Laughed at by the citizen because the nervous excitement of novelty dazes bis mind for the moment, extortioned, perhaps, because of bis ignorance re garding the price of things with which he is not familiar, lavishly plied with soft insinuating words if be has money, the impression is songht to be graven iudellibly on the mind of the country man that ail knowledge and wisdom exists in this wondrous town, and that it is of verity the Athens of America But where can some of these people come from ? They certainly have read the papers ; many are so afraid of be ing cheated that they are loth to drop the money from their palms when making a purchase, for fear some bid* den alohemy will rob them of all if they let go a coin as • nestling. Numerous, amusing and ridiculous incidents have oocurred, one only whioh we will give. In street travel it is tbe duty of the car conductors to run ahead at all steam railroad cross ings, to see that the tracks are clear of danger. A countryman had given the conductor a one dollar bill to take his fare out of. Nearing the steam-road, the conductor stepped out and jumped off tbe ear before giving change. The clown sprung after him, caught him by tho collar, and shouted for his money. ' You've got a dollar note of mine and I want tbe change. Everybody in the car saw you git it.' The wondrous feature of travel is that no accidents occur. Trains labor with their loads ; passengers hang on every available spot. I have seen the front of locomotives black with hnman freight. Jumping on and off moving trains is practiced constantly, many doubtless thinking if they are killed, to die in the centennial year will bo glory enough That courtesy spoken of by some correspondents as donated by foreign ers in their intercourse with spectators aPthe grand fair, we fail to see, be cause we do notlook through a mon archal lensc, for be the culture what it may, a Dutchman only serves as a con necting link between the human form divine and animal. Penaylvania's day will ever be me morable as a gathering of men ; the scene on the homeward route'from Bel mont avenue at night looked like the retreat of a routed army, broken vehicles, blocked cars, and a general order of confusion reigned. Many were lost only to find their com panions after reaching borne In the early dawn of morning all along Mar ket street and Girard avenue the hu man mass blackened the thoroughfares, and ]ate night saw them still the same. Individuality of location crops out here, easily distinguished by dress or mannerism, the rash, natural impu dence of the Yankee, Yorker pushing aside staid Pensylvania farmers and domestic westerners, the chivalrous de fense of the Southron, and egotism of the Canadian are matters of study and profit. Places of amusement are crowd ed on all occasion Once more harvest time for the merchant, trader, apple woman and courtezan. (Correction.) Sir: My last letter for word mist read the fall of mast, fruit of oak ; not mist fine rain. [Written for the Middletown Transcript.] Centennial Notes No. lO. ITALY. This country has a magnificent dis play of mosaics, in fact, excels we believe, every nation on tbe earth in this beautiful work. Some beautiful tables in this rare style are shown here—one in particular, we noticed, was Cupid riding a lion, and the border of the table was a wreath of morning-glories Another magnifi cent one was in pearl mosaic, and rep resented the Cathedral at Milan. This was certainly grand in every detail. A rich gilt frame inlaid with mosaic, and table to match, were something new in the looking-glass frame line. Italy's bronze art ia Becond to none, and gathers crowds of admirers. One of Cesar Augustus, we noticed in particu lar. It represents Caesar clad in ar mor in a war-lika attitude, while Cu pid, with armor in hand, ia trying, un successfully, to claim his attention— but all his thoughts are iu glory, at the sacrifice of all human passions, and the god of love will have to torn his attention to some other quarter. Some exquisite cabinets of ebony, in laid with pearl and bronze, showed the almost unequaled skill of the maker. Italy, like a great many others, has a considerable quantity of majolica ware on exhibition, but not being much of an admirer of that style of ware, our tastes not being educated up to a degree of admiration of it, we did not examine it much.- The magnifi cent display of silver filagree work in an adjoining case held us almost spell-bound for a while ; here were breast pins, chains, ear-rings, brace lets, necklaces and combs in almost endless profusion. A lovely ship in silver, looked as if just from fairy land, with its silvry transparent sails and glistening sides ; a silver waiter of the same lace-like appearance, valued at 0300,00, won a great deal of attention. This case of filagree silver won the prize-medal. Turning to another case, we discovered some lovely turquoise jewelry in sets and rings, also mosaic breast pins, and exquisite pink coral, so dear to the hearts and eyes of our blond beauties ; some marked as high as fifty dollars for quite small sets. One in particular we noticed, was a coral out in heads with diamond eyes; these, of coarse, were very expensive. Some magnificent neeklaces in dead gold iu shape of heavy fringe, drew forth ex clamations of admiration from a bevy of girls, and no wonder, for they were certainly superb. Tortoise shell forms an important part of this department's exhihit, and is worked up into a variety of shapes, among which are chains, frames, inkstands, candlesticks, combs,brushes,&c. A very pretty foun tain iu pottery is near this part of Italy's exhibit ; it represents two chil dren, a boy and girl, out in the rain, holdiug an umbrella over their heads, the water trickliDg off the umbrella, looks so natural and attracts the little ones' attention greatly. Straw goods are shown in great variety, and in curi ous shapes, especially some parasols and boxes of this rather stiff material. There is a splendid display of Panama hats, also kid gloves. Quantities of soft, fine cassimeres of various patterns are exhibited. Paint colors are also shown, as well as drugs and some min erals. Wines are here in great variety and also confectionery. Wax in can dles and tapers, and other forms are shown. A plaster cast of Garabaldi of large size is exhibited, but reflecting neither credit on "Gary" or the artist, as regards smoothness or details. Some lovely scenes of Italy in photograph are to be seen here. Stone work of great beauty is exhibited—a pair of ohairs, table and settee, beautifully carved ; the settee having a gun across the back, the table legs formed of grape vines, in which are seen bird Dests, but we have our doubts about birds build ing in grape vines; however being no ornithologist we are not prepared to say positively. An instrument similar to the Graphoscope is exhibited, it is called a magaletoscopio, and shows pictures to a great advantage, and if any Middletown adept at pronunciation will please step to the front, and pro nounce that word, we would be pleased to hear it, for it is beyond onr tongue. Field telescopes are shown as also other glasses of smaller sizé. Some magnifi cent journals bound in heavy leather and metal, met > onr eyes in this direc tion, and made us wonder what were contents. Italy makes quite a dis play of looking-glasses and candela bra attached ; also some natural look ing large images of negro' girls hold ing up candelabra. Perfumery and cut-glass form also a part 9f their ex hibit. It is in this department the piano grafo is to be seen attached to an upright piano. Some very sweet tuned pianos are here, and an obliging and exqaisite performer (the inventor of the pianografo) discourses sweet mu sic, except when he is better employ ed) in his estimation) talking to the group of pretty girls who always man- j age to be near him. The gentlemen in | this department are proverbial for their nolitonese and this «oennnt* in a politeness, and this accounts m a measure for their crowds of purchasers. RoSALBINJC the luäin«SB Suais.

To the Public : To accommodate our growing manufactur ing interests we have b'uilt large additions to our Buildings ia Smyrna where we will short ly remove our shoe machinery. From this some have inferred that we would relinquish our RETAIL Boot and Shoe trade here. We gratefully acknowledge a generous support from this community, and assure them that the STORE will be continued, and, by em ploying cheap home labor and home-tanned leather and morocco, make a shoe that will give tbe most wear and comfort for tbe least money. Our stores require the labor of about twenty-five persons throughout the year, and keep about $15,000 at home that would other wise go to prosper some other locality. We have made some mistakes, all manufacturers will, but we shall use materials of known su periority in the several grades of our shoes hereafter. We are supplying most of the best trade around Smyrna and here, and filling orders from many of DéHaven's former cus tomers all over the Peninsula. We will give you an exhibition of Boots çnd Shoes of our own make at the coming FAIR, and will ask a verdict and a continuation of your patron age. Very respectfully, R. M. k W. T.
