tells this : On the steamer Highland Light on
Tuesday night, there was a very entertaining
old lady on board from Cambridge. The
Centennial exhibition was her great hobby.
She said everybody was talking about the
Centennial, and the papers were full of it ;
and she wondered what it could be. She said
they never had anything in Cambridge ; she
couldn't see why they couldn't have it there,
it had been everywhere else this year ; but
she supposed it would come to Cambridge
sometime next year, after it had gone all
around the world.

Democratic Hass Meeting.
The mass meeting held by the Democrats at
Middletown on Thursday was one of the
largest, best attended and enthusiastic held
at this place for many years,
was given to the speakers and more interest
manifested in the addresses than it has hither
to been the custom for the audiences to show.
Perfect order and decorum prevailed and not
a single act was done or word said to disturb
the good feeling that exists between people of
different sentiments in this community.
No attempt- was made to form a procession,
both on account of the want of time and be
cause it was generally voted to be of more
tronble than profit. The services of the Dia
mond State Band of Middletown were called
into requisition to furnish music for the oc
casion and right well did they perform their
part of the programme. After playing through
the streets of the town they proceeded to the
Fair Grounds, where the meeting was to be
held, followed by the large crowd of people
At two o'clock the meeting was
organized in the grand stand with the follow

Vice-Presidents—Richard Ferguson, Samuel
Townsend, T. W. McCracken, Albert O. New

Hon. T. F. Bayard was then presented and
proceeded in an eloquent and forcible address
of an hour and a-half to discuss the questions

THE EVENING MEETING.
At seven and a-balf o'clock a large and in
telligent audience of both ladies and gentle
men, assembled in the Town Hall to listen to
the arguments of the gentlemen announced to
address them. John A. Reynolds was called
to the chair and Joseph Hanson made secre
tary. James A. Pearce, Esq., of Chestertown,
Md., was first introduced and entertained the
audience in a logical and pointed address of
He was followed, in the same
strain, by Charles Beasten, Jr. Esq., of Balti
whose speech was well received and
frequently applauded by the audience.—
Speeches were also made by Mr. John Biggs,
of Hon. B. T. Biggs, who thus begins his
course in efforts to aid the true cause of right
and honesty, and by Samuel Townsend, Esq.,
at the close of whose remarks the meeting
The reception of Governor Tilden's
recent letter in the South shows that the
sensible people of that section agree
with those of the North in their opposi
tion to the payment of the so-called
Southern war claims So far from tak
ing umbrage at Governor Tilden's out
spoken declaration on this subject the
Southern press cordially applauds^ it,
and Democratic meetings at various
points have passed resolutions in denial
of the charge that the Southern people
expect that a change of administration
in the Federal Government will enure
to their benefit in securing payment for
loss of or damage to their property dur
ing the war. Among the notable utter
of this character is an address to
the people of the United States, signed
by the Governor and other State officers
of Alabama, and by the Democratic
members of the Legislature, Congress
and candidates for Congress]in that
State. These gentlemen declare that
all they desire is peace, prosperity and
just government, with equal rights
under the Constitution. Senator Blaine
and Mr. Halstead still suffer, however,
from that horrid nightmare, the rebel
debt, and Hr. Halstead writes a daily
letter on the subject to the New York
papers.— Ph.la. Times.

I TAKE great pleasure in saying to my
friends und customers that, being encour
aged by th- very liberal patronage of 1875, I
am now satisfied that FIRST-CLASS GOODS
will always be sought after, and I am deter
mined that this Centennial year shall find m
my store the
Largest and Finest Stock
EVER OFFERED IN MIDDLETOWN
and the largest variety of any one bouse in
the State. I have bought direct from twelve
of the best manufacturers in New York, Phil
adelphia, Baltimore and Albany. My stock
makes a list of over
SEVENTY DIFFERENT PATTERNS
from the very finest nickel-plated to the cheap
est bed room, ranging in price from $5 to
$80. My slock embraces all the improve
ments of Ike present season and was bought at
very reduced prices ; therefore 1 intend sell
ing them at very small profits, so that every
the Fall and Winter of
one can commence
"76" with a new stove
space assigned me at the great
INTEU NATION 4L EXPOSITION,
1 have concluded to show myfltock in Middle
town, and persons not having an opportunity
to visit the Exhibition in Philadelphia and see
the display of fine Stoves, have only to come
to my store and Mr. W. H. Johnson will take
great pleasure in showing my stock which is
and will show you the Testimonials of those
a.icady in use. My sale of HEATERS has
lur exceeded my expectations, having sold
over fifty the past season. I am in receipt of
stimoniais from a large majority of those
I publish the names of a
i. .w using them.

Out of the fifty or sixty Heaters that I have
put up in the past year only one customer has
made complaint to me. The best evidence of
their giving entire satisfaction is that the
friends of those who did buy are asking for
and buying the same this year. My stock for
the present season consists of Stoves, viz :
MONARCH, ANTI- CLINKER
Brilliant Radiator, Arctic Egg,
PARLOR DOUBLE HEATERS
For heating two rooms,
FIRE PLACE HEATERS
For heating two or more rooms.
CELLAR PORTABLE HEATERS.
I have added to my stock of Stoves, Tin
Ware and House Furnishing Goods, samples
which I can sell at Philadelphia prices. Man
tles range in price from $25 to $200; Shelves,
Brackets, Pedestals, in a word everything in
that line. Old Mantles matched and repaired
at short notice. Mantles made to order—
Square, Circular and Eliptic. Call and get a
catalogue and examine samples. All Mantle
and Heater work will have my personal at
tention in their erection.
Thanking the public for past favor, s I hope
to maintain such relations with the trade as
shall command for me in the future, as in the
past, a secure position in the foremost rank.
