Democrats ! bs at the polls early and when you have voted your own ticket, look around to aee if there is any luke warm or indifferent patriot whom you Folia Open Between 8 and 0 o'clock a.m and Cloae at 5 p. n. can persuade to go to the polls aud vote the true ticket of the Demoeracy and Reform. Every vote helps and will tell in the general result. The Disaster anticipated by the Servian General Tchemayeff has been realized. His army has met with a dia ..trou, defeat, and been completely de moralized ; a panic prevailed at Bel-1 grade, and Servia occupies the anomal ous position of being at the mercy of either her ostensible friend, Ruesia, or her open enemy,Turkey. Fortunately the negotiations for an armistice seem to hare been praotioally concluded, and Servia may now well be spared further disaater. The question before Europa of reforme in the Turkish provinces may well be settled, if it is possible, with Every Democrat should be careful to as out further resort to violence. read hia ticket all through to be sure ' that he has a genuine article. There will be a vast number of bogus tiokets —some with the namos of the Demo eratie candidates for the Presidency on them, and the Republioan electors ; others will have some other portion of our ticket on them with the rest Repub lieau. All these little games are prao tioed at every election, and voters must keep a sharp lookout or they may get fooled. THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. Delawareans ! As citizens of the sovereign Stete of Delawere and of the great United States, you will be called upon, on Tuesday next, to assist, by your ballots, in the selection of a ohief magistrate of this great nation ; of one of your own citizens to represent your interests in the general Congress and of legislature to make end revise laws for your State and county. The elective franohiae is an inestimable privilege of the American citizen, conferred upon him by the eonstitution framed and adopted by the founders of our govern ment, who risked their lives, their for-1 tunes and their all in securing the in dependence and freedom of the country, It is therefore a right, inherited and inalienable, of the greatest importance and to he exercised with grave and care ful consideration; and he who would cast hia ballot without having bestowed a moment's consideration upon the aot or given a thought to the consequences that follow, but votes in a careless, thoughtless manner, thereby abuses his An election, but more espeeially, a I Presidential election, is always an event of the greatest importance,fraught as it is with questions and issues of ' grave moment to the interests and wel fare of the people, and no good citizen can neglect or refute to avail himself of bis high privilege of doing his part in the selection of his rulers and law privilege. makers without a dereliction of duty to bis country, his family and himself. The election to be held on Tuesday next is one of peculiar and especial interest. The issues involved are of more than ordinary weight and should be met in a full and intelligent compre-1 All—the rich and tbe poor ; the high and the low—are alike interested in this contest. It is one of the peo pie against an army of office-holders, who, kept in their positions by a venal Chief Magistrate, are draining the rev enues of the country—the very life blood of its existenoe. It is a contest of honesty with corruption ; a battle for constitutional right and to wreit tbe government from the bands of men who have most fearfully abused the power henaion of their importance. entrusted to them. THK DEMOCRATIC PASTY. Men who style themselves non-par risen are in the habit of croaking abont the diehonesty of politicians and of as serting that one party ia no better than another, and that the Démocratie party would he a* corrupt aa the Republioan were they to attain to power. These I are mere croakers—false prophets who I speak without reflection and assert that I which cannot be sustained by proof.— I There is no way to man to judge the ! future except through the medium the past. Ungifted with prophetic ken, we caa only infer from what has been I to what will be. A party which proved trustworthy in the past we may reason ably consider worthy of confidence in the future. Now what is the past re cord of the two great contending par ties ? From the time of its first accès sion to power, with the inauguration as President of its founder, Thomas Jeffer son, on the fourth of March 1801, (with the exception of two short periods of Whig rule) the democratic party held possession of the government of the Re public and controlled its administration until a fatal rupture 'in its ranks in 1860 threw open a way by which the present Republican party acceded to power. During all the years of Demo cratic supremacy the country prospered to a degree truly wonderful, and the nation increased in numbers and in the respect of other sovereignties, until she arose to the first rank of the nations of the earth No mighty debt then weighed down, as a mighty incumbus, the energies of the people groaning under the unequal burden. No national executive then made use of sword and bayonet to oontrol elections ; the army was not used as a political machine to deter one class of citizens from voting and to force another class to vote tickets , I prescribed for them by emissaries from I the party of the President. Under Démocratie Presidents no Belknaps, and Robe80nB or Baboooks filled the cabinet | officei> or held high p 0sitiong 0 f trust and confidence under the government. Safe burglaries by government officials, Credit Mob i lier s and whiskey rings, oom d of osbinet offieerit members of oongress and foreign ministers, were then unknown. All these were reserved for Re P ub,ioan ^ministrations. if perchance a dishonest man was found in office-who disgraced his position by ille * al and criminal ac * 8 ' hia conviotion " as 8wift and his P unishment 8nre ' of or I Now what of the Republican ? Founded in hatred and malice and in avowed opposition to the constitution of the oountry, it has never ceased its assaults upon that instrument until with altera tiouB, nullifications and amendments, it has become so disfigured that the orig inal purposes and objects of its framers have been entirely frustrated and it is to all intents and purposes almost a dead letter in tho law. Without re But, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. So much for the Democratic party. hearsing their deeds of tyranny and lawlessness—despite their most solemn pledges and promises to the oontrary— during the war, and for which we will quasi admit their plea of military neces ; sity, let us look for a moment at their history since the close of that unhappy 1 struggle. Though more than eleven 1 years have elapsed since the confederate armies laid down thsir weapons and re tired to their homes, peace and order are not yet restored to the Southern States and they are not permitted to re sume their constitutional right of regu latin S tbeir own in,crnal affaira - but - under tbe P Iaa of "intimidation of col ored «tew" Urge numbers of United I Statei soldiera are atatioDod in aome of President and his party, knowing the utter hopelessness of their cause when tbe people-white and colored-are psr mitted *° aot and voto aocordin « t0 tbeir own inclinations, have turned the State those States, nominally to procure, but really to prevent, a fair election. The of ever y n,eana in tHeir P ower t0 -P re *. vent the P eo P le of that State from ▼«* »ng * ba Democratic ticket and placing their State Government in the hands of that P«'y This they do, in order If possible, to prevent the electoral vote of U "Solid Sffuth" from being given to the Democratic nominees for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency, But the illegal use of the army is not the only charge made against the ad ministration party. Many' of its most prominent members and leaders—men I who have held high position under the Government, and who are among the most idolized favorites of the party— have been found guilty of participation in the grossest frauds upon, and rob beries of, the Government A man upoD whom was proven the most glar ing villainies; who had, while acting as chief of commissioners of tho Dis of South Carolina into an armed mili tary camp and are making illegal use | trict of Columbia, enriched himself, by bribery and misappropriation of millions I of the public funds—whose crimes were so notorious that the Senate removed him from hia office, wag urged for rein statement by a Republican President, without a single attempt to clear him of the chargea against him. Another I prominent member of the party, occu pying the important position of Minister to England, was found guilty of par tioipatiou in a moat villainous and gross mining swindle, whereby millions of funds, both publie and private, were stolen, but that man lost nothing of his standing in the Republican party. A cabinet officer abused the privileges of hia position, to add to his private wealth, by tbe sale of Government offi | ces aud patronage : A confidential sec retary of tho President was charged with, and tried for, complioity in a sys tem of gigantic frauds upon tbe revenue of the Government, and though he es caped conviction at tbe bands of a jury, his guilt was so apparent, that even journals of hia own partisan faith ad mitted it, aDd deolared ho could not cs cape its oonsequences. But neither did he lose the confidence of his party, and its ehief officer. Time and space would fail us to tell of the deeds of Blaine, Conkling, Colfax, Bobeson, Harring ton, Fisher, Nolen, and hosts of other such brilliant lights of the Republican party ; but enough have been enumer ated to illustrate the character of the party which asks the people to again entrust the machinery of the national government in its hands, and the kind of men .it presents for popular prefer ment, THE CANDIDATES. We.come now to a consideration of the two Presidential candidates and their claims for popular suffrage. The Republican Candidate. —Of Gov. R. B. Hayes, the Republican nominee for the Presidency, compara tively little is known. Previous to his nomination by the Cincinnati Conven tion he was scarcely known to the pub lio beyond the precincts of his own State. He is a lawyer, but has never attained to any eminence in his profes He was twice a member of Con SIOD. gress but, as he sat a passive spectator of the proceedings in that body and took no active part in them, he arose to no prominence and gained no notoriety. He voted at roll call and his name is found recorded among the yeas and nays in the votes on various subjects aD d—that is all. He was never known to institute or introduce any great, mea sure but took such a part in the legis lation of the national assembly as any good automaton might have been made to do. During the civil war he was a soldier in the federal army ; but neither there did he display any marked talent aud while many of his compeers with no better advantages became Division and Corps Commanders, Mr. Hayes never arose higher than a brigadier general. He has also been Governor of Ohio, and here again he has mani fested no superior qualifications which fit him for the position to which his partisans seek to elevate him. His ad ministration has been without any great or meritorious results and he has prov ed himself of no especial merit except that of being a respectable figure head. What then are his qualifications for the Presidency? Simply and only— as was urged as the chief grounds for hia nomination—that he was supposed to be of sufficient local popularity among the citizens of Ohio to enable him to carry that State for his party at the November election. A lawyer of no prominence ; a soldier of no ability ; a Governor without measures or policy. Such is the man for whom the Repub licans ask the suffrage of the American people. The Democratic Candidates. High on the roll of members—aye at the very head of the list—of the bar of New York stands the name of Samuel J. Tilden, respected for his talents aud acknowledged as the master spirit in that organization of eminent and saga cious men. In politioai matters he has proved himself a statesman of exalted ability ; national and unpartisan in his patriotism ; unprejudiced and impartial io his devotion to his country Though naturally ambitious of the favors of his countrymen he never permitted his as pirations to interfere with, or prevent, the execution of his duty. Hence, when satisfied of the villainies and frauds of the "ring" of base men who were robbing the treasury of the city of New York, he did not hesitate to ex pose their corruptions and bring them to the bar of justice; and this, too, at a time when that "ring" exerted a most powerful political influenoe in the party which Mr. Tilden himself belonged. And when two years after he was chosen Governor of New York, he manifested his great qualities as a ruler of the peo ple by ferreting out and bringing to justice the head and leader of that ring, whom, despite his vast wealth and great political power, he drove to a felon's cell, and refused to mitigate his just punishment. Nor did he stop here, but wherever trickery and fraud existed, he discovered it, and no matter how high the social position, or how prominent influential the perpetrator, he called him to account for his evil deeds, and visited upon him the just reward of bis crimes. Thus was vice and corruption overthrown in the Empire State and honest government restored through the able management of Governor Tilden. Such is the man whom the Demoeratio party presents to the people for their suffrages oo Tuesday next. A man who, by the most trying and practical exper ience, has proved himself in every way worthy of their most perfect confidence ; who has shown himself pre-eminently qualified for the position of chief magis trate ; the man who, of all others, is best adapted to pilot the ship of State through the storms and breakers into which she has been driven by the mis management of a notoriously corrupt and incapable party : the man to des troy fraudulent rings and cliques, who will show no leniency to thieves and rasoals ; under whom the country will not be disgraced by nepotism, nor de? graded by the humiliating spectacle of cabinet members selling governmental patronage and confidential officials par ticipating in whiskey frauds and land and mine swindles. Delawareans! Voters! We have laid before you a sketch of the history and character of the two great parties and their candidates. Choose ye between them ! Every vote cast for the Repub lican candidate is a vole for the contin uation of the notoriously bad aqd cor rupt administration of the party of Ulysses Grant: for deny it as they may, Mr. Hayes will, if elected, be subjeot a to the same bad influence that has swayed aud directed the course of present Chief Magistrate. If you want a change in these things; if you want a good and capable administration your government ; if you prefer hon esty to fraud, statesmanship to medi ocrity ; firmness and determination the prosecution of right, to weakness and plianey ; if, in a word, you prefer a man in every way fit for President one who is in no way qualified for the position, then cast your ballot for Sam'l J. Tilden and his associate Thomas A. Hendricks. Every crime whieh enmity, hatred, jealousy, envy, malice and partisanship could possibly trump up, has been charged falsely against Governor Tilden and every one has been met and the baseness and falsity of it exposed and proved. Perjury, theft, treachery, de falcation, bribery, and the whole cata logue of crime, excepting only murder, has beeD charged upon him and all have been proven to be lies of the most glar ing and basest character and have fallen harmless to the ground. Next Tuesday, November 7,(election day,) has been appointed as woman's day at the Centennial exhibition. A reception will be held at the women's pavillion by the ladies' centennial exec utive committee, from 12 o'clock noon till 4 o'clock, P. M., during which time a baud of music will be in attendance. Vote the Whole Ticket. —No Dem ocrat should feel himself at liberty to reject or refuse to vote for any candi date on the ticket. Nothing but a cer tain knowledge or positive proof of utter incapacity, or virulent corruption, can justify a man in scratching his ticket. No personal likes or dislikes; no un proven suspicions; no mere personal prejudices, can justify a man iu the sac rifies of the principles which he believes correct. Our Philadelphia lady correspondent sent her " Centennial Notes'' too late for publication this week. They will be found on the first page of the Trans cript next week. Political Notes. Senator Bayard addressed a crowded audience in Horticultural Hall, at West Chester, on Monday evening. From the long delay in tho arrival of Tweed, it is now believed that he has stolen the ship and carried it off. Talking about "the rebel claims," the Chicago Times says : "Even if Hayes is elected they may not be a dead loss. Send 'em to Logan and promise him half." There is renewed activity at the na tional headquarters of both parties in New York city, and a desperate effort is to be made by eaoh in New York, Con necticut and New Jersey. The Sun reminds its neighbor, the Times, that the election approaches; the remaining tsme is short, and "there are several crimes of which Mr Tilden has not yet been accused." Many of the leading business men of the South give publio indorsement of Tilden's letter on the " Rebel War Claims. They say: "It's not money we want, it's peace and protection." Fifteen oitizens of West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, were, on Monday, taken to New Orleans by United States deputy marshals and held to bail in $1,500 each for trial on charges of in timidating negroes last July. Governor Dorsheimer's estimate of Hayes after a visit to Ohio: " A man who said nothing as a Congressman and has done nothing as a Governor; a sol dier without victories, a statesman with out measures, and a ruler without a policy." The Nation's greatest fear about the return of the South and the Democrats to power is "not that they will atrip the Treasury for the satisfaction of war claims, but that they will follow Repub lican precedents in the unscrupulous use of power for partisan purposes." The Washington Republican does not think so well of negro politicians as it used to do. It says: "Their mission is simply to create dissension aod strife in the republican party, and the sooner they are remanded to insignificance the better it will be for all concerned " The New York Tribune remarks that Governor Chamberlain is now denounc ed as a scoundrel and a liar by the very same papers that a few months ago praised him. The Tribune ought not to find fault. They have only got round to the position of tbe kitchen organ a year ago. Says the Springfield Republican : "While Tilden's chance of election next week ia at least even, neither gold goes up nor values down, and even the men who are predicting disastrous conse from his success are neither quenoes stopping their business nor selling off their property at any lower prices." Chief Justice Moses, who testified to the peace of South Carolina, haa held office for over thirty years. He is not Judge Montgomery Moses, who was impeached by the Legislature, nor is he F. J. Moses, the robber Governor, who was also recently elected judge by the Republican Legislature. Some of General Wade Hampton's open-air meetings in South Carolinaare opened with prayer, and a hymn, com posed for the campaign, "God Save the State," is sung by hundreds of and children, white aqd black, panied by a parlor organ. At one of the meetings there was a procession of over 1,500 men and nearly 500 women on horseback. women accom Gen. Miles had a fight with Sitting Bull and his braves on the 21st and 22d ult , after an unsuccessful council, killing a number of Indians and wound ing many.

The subscriptions towards providing a building for Moody and Sankey in Boston amounted on Friday to $16,150 leaving $3,800 more to be provided for before the work can be began From the Delaware Gazette. of CAH00TING WITH NEGB0ES. Mr. Editor :—Since the very distin guished gentleman who has the honor to be the candidate for the Sheriffalty on the Republican ticket has shown a fond ness for newspaper notoriety as well as his friends for him, having had the use of two papers all the time and sometimes three, ever keeping his name fresh be fore the public in some shape-»—but the most notioeable feature of which is the speech made by himself at a meeting in Brandywine Hd. some days sinee, pub lished verbatim for bis benefit—he will certainly not complain if we take part in something of the same sort. Some times people show their wisdom by keep ing quiet, and we are inclined to think it would have been better for him bad he done so. Wby, we might suppose from the tone of that self-extolling speech, that his trumpeter was dead, or that he thought everybody fools except himself, and that no one bad any recol lections of what transpired within the last fifteen years of which he speaks of carrying a mortgage of $10,000 on a nice farm, and keeping the interest paid liko a man. Since he has takeo so much pains to show bow very poor aod deserving he is and that Mr. Grubb bad, or would have bad at some time, (and he failed to show which,) about $3,000, let us look back a little and see what he bas bad to pay his interest with. In 1863 to 1864 he was Collector and Constable of New Cas tle Hundred, out of which with his good management and industry we would suppose he would have saved near $2000 ; after the expiration of the term of office there was no opportunity of his getting hold of the publio tit again until after the election of Grant. But on the 4th of March, 1869, Grant was inaug urated and in less than four months Mr. McM. was appointed to a better office— Assistant Assessor of Internal Revenue —which he held for four years. That office being vacated and all others being occupied, there seemed to be no alter native but be must be relieved for awhile; but how long was he contented with his nice farm and no office? Why in less than sixty days from the time he made bis last draw upon the public funds for the balance of his 48 months' pay and which being the last of a little ess than $6,000 he had drawn from that sâme source, he announced himself as a candidate for sheriff, and will, no doubt, think it hard if a poor, worthy, industrious fellow like him should fail to capture that amount of the publio money awaiting the next Sheriff Now, we would like to know if this amount of public money, in addition to the annual income of a nice farm, would not loosen the grip of that mortgage which he has used as an electioneering pretext for the last three years. In the name of common sense and reason,what kind of fastening has it ? And another objection we might offer to the gentle man being elected to the office he seeks is the hope expressed by some of his colored friends, a little over two years ago, of having their color represented in that office in the form of a deputy, in the event of his election, in order to ex plain how this hope became known, it will be necessary to refer to a meeting held at Browntown by some of the col ored men, for the benefit of a certain candidate, and which was not intended to be public, but made so by the intru sion of some of Mr. McMullen's friends who being over zealous for his success and for the defeat of other candidates, availed themselves of this opportunity of putting up a job on them and of which the Every Evening gave us a brief account at the time. At the meeting alluded to, a colored man by the name of Peter S. Blake, who was at the time, and is yet, we presume, in the employ of, and at the disposal of John M. Dunn, Esq., who is, no doubt, one of Mr. Mc Mullen's friends, put in an appearance, and, in the form of a speech, made quite an effort to excite the candidate present to a reply, but failing so to do, showed plainly by his actions, after the meeting adjourned, that he had not yet fulfilled the mission on which his master had sent him, and placing himself between said candidate and the door made a per sonal attack upon him as he came out, to which attack the candidate indig nantly replied : "Blake, I have no talk for you, I am at the full extent of my errand. These people invited me to come out here in order that some of them might have an opportunity of seeing me, and I know as much about wbatyou are here for as they that sent you—to pick something out of me that you caH run around this town with, making capital against me, and I want no clash with you." To which Blake replied : "I don't want any clash with you, Mr. Candidate, but we did think might answer our questions. All we want to know is, if you are elected sheriff, would you make a colored man your deputy ?" Candidate—"If £ was your choice, or, if your candidate was here, there would be no questions asked." To which Blake clearly and emphat ically replied : "Wo have waited on our candidate and he answers all our questions satis factorilly." Now what did all this mean ? Was it to get some hold on the candidate present by wnicb to defeat his nomina tion, or was it to secure a pledge for another candidate for the colored de puty, in case the first should not be nominated ? The reader must draw his own con elusions. But to Bay the least, it was certainly the strangest, if not the sharp est practice we ever saw played on any one, in any party, and there is one fact in connection with it that is elear to every mind that the whole thing was used against the candidate present, in a manner that told largely in his defeat. Yes, but say you who say so ; why, this 1 b no idle tale, this is no fabrica tion. Is there a man in either party who has not heard'it ? We must only refresh their minds of these facts ; just now at a time when men who expect to vote on Tuesday next, should deliber ate on them, for while the Every Even ing which contains the very partial re port of the meeting entire, copies of which were thrown broadcast over the county among the candidate's friends, the reality was told by others present in the candidate's defense. There were two other white men pre sent, one of whom was a candidate for coroner at the time, besides quite a number of colored men who heard the whole conversation. you There is suoh a rivalry among bar bers in New York that there are shops where a shave and a glass of lager given for five cents. are The number of postal cards issued during the month ending Tuesday 23,116,000, being sn increase of 2, 977,500, or nearly fifteen per cent, over the issue of October of last year.
