••Blind Tom" In Middletown.
This wonderful negro prodigy will give an
* exhibition of his marvelous musical skill and
attainments in the Town Hall on Monday
evening next. His visit here last January
welcomed by a crowded house, by whom
was
his entertainment was well received. Many,
however, failed to improve the opportunity
then offered to witness his wonderful per
formances, and these will be glad of another
chance.
Assault on John O'Byrue.
In Wilmington, about 9:30 Tuesday evening
as John O'Byrne, Esq., in company with City
Solicitor Cummins, was passing along Sixth
street, between Market and King, a man sud
denly darted out of the shadow and struck
the former a heavy blow on the back of the
head with some instrument, a blackjack or
sand bag. The assaulting party then hastily
retreated and was not recognized. Mr. O'
Byrne was stunned, but the wound is not
serious.
Surgical Operation.
Dr. W. F. Kennedy on Monday last per
formed a very painful surgical operation upon
the wrist joint of Mrs. Wood, near Ginn's
Corner, this county. As well as we can un
derstand the case is one which resulted from
a fracture over three years ago; and from
that time she has been almost totally deprived
of the use of her hand. Though the suffering
was severe, she has every prospect, we are
informed, of having a useful hand restored to
her. The patient is doing well.
The Lait of the Campaign.
The Tilden Club of St. Georges Hundred
held its last meeting of the campaign, prepar
atory to the great struggle, on Monday even
ing in their club room. There was a very
fall attendance of the members and a good
number of citizens, unconnected with the
club, gathered in the room making qnitt a
good sized audience. About 8J o'clock the
president, Mr. J. H. Scowdrick, called the
meeting to order and presented Mr. P. H.
Boone, who entertained the audience with an
excellent and well composed address of a half
hour or more in length, which was well re
ceived and frequently applauded. Mr. E.
Reynolds was then called for and delivered
short extempore address on the political
issues of the day—reviewing in a few words
the past history of the two parties and draw
ing a sketch of the two presidential candidates
and presenting their respective claims for the
position they seek, rehearsing the outrages
perpetrated against the Southern people by
Grant and closing with an appeal to all Dem
ocrats to do their duty without faltering on
the morrow and vote the whole ticket and
roll up a big majority in the cause of Tilden,
Hendricks and National Reform.

A Good Day's Work Well Done.
The political contest of 1876 in this State,
after probably one of the most exciting cam
paigns that has taken place for many years,
ended by the election on Tuesday. The
result was as the Democrats had all along
prophesied it would be—but which our op
ponents denied—a victory for their party.
But they had scarcely expected and did not
anticipate quite so overwhelming a victory as
the result showed. The Republicans did their
utmost to defeat us
thought they had us sure. They fully expected
to carry this county and were sadly chagrined
at their defeat, though doubtless their bitter
est disappointment was the defeat of Mr. Mc
Mullen for sheriff, and the consequent election
of Mr. Grnbb. The Democrats had told them
all along that Grubb never ran behind his
ticket but they thought Mr. McMullen was in
vincible, but he wasn't. Maybe they thought
.Every Evening's all-powerful influence would
kill Grubb, but it didn't hurt him much.
That's about the good or harm E. E. always
does.
Takiug all things into consideration the
victory of the Democrats is a grand one, and
one over which we may well exult. The de
feat of our ticket for the city council of Wil
mington, in September, had inspired our op
ponents with the hope of carrying the city by
a tremendous majority, and through it the
county and many of them were even presump
tious enough to think they would carry Sussex
if the grand old forest county ever deserted
her party and the State in the hour of need.
Both tickets were as a general thing voted en
tire, not much cutting being done, except of
Mr. H. M. JenkiDS, on the Republican ticket.
Through the personal opposition .of enemies
in his own party, Mr. Jenkins was made to
some 200 votes behind the other candi
dates on bis ticket. 154 of which were taken
from him in.Wilmington.
Not having space to give the full vote, we
give a carefully prepared summary of the
average number of votes polled for each ticket

The Election In Middletown.
Notwithstanding the fact that the deepest
interest was manifested in the election by
every one, Democrat and Republican alike,
the election was conducted, in Middletown,
with the most perfect order and decorum.—
Everybody and everything was quiet and not
a thing occurred during the day to break the
peace or cause disorder. The Democrats
voted on one side of the window and the Re
publicans and negroes on the other. Every
one waited his turn with patience and there
was no crowding or pushing around the polls.
Challenging and questioning was taken in
good part ; the rights and privileges of all
were respected and not a complaint or charge
of unfairness on the part of either side was
made and good humor prevailed throughout
the entire day. A great deal of this was,
doubtless, due to the absence of "John Bar
leycorn."
When the window was shut down a large
number of anxious electors gathered around
the window and in the ball and reading room
of the hotel to await the counting of the
votes. As the end approached the most eager
interest was manifested by the lookers on many
of whom from time gave vent to tbeir pent up
feelings in hearty crows as ths number of
Democratic roosters coming from the box was
increased, and when the final ballot was read
off and the announcement was made that the
Democrats had a majority of 81 the Demo
cratic boys rushed pell-mell from the house
to the portico and made the welkin ring with
their loud cheers of delight. Three cheers !
three cheers for the Democratic ticket, some
would cry, and every Democrat would
join in the shout. Thus again and again did
they roll out their Bhouts of joy till the whole
ticket and almost every separate candidate,
beginning with Gov. Tilden and ending with
Alex. Wilson had been cheered.
Satisfied with, and happy over the result at
home, the whole crowd adjourned to the R.
R. depot to learn if the telegraph bad brought

This time they were joined by the Republi
who hoped to learn something that
cans
should turn the Democratic rejoicing into
mourning aud give them a chance to do a
little cheering, but so late were the returns
earning in that the large majority of both
parties returned to their homes, about mid
night, without having heard anything that
pleased them.
On Wednesday everybody hurried to the
depot, each asking the other, with breathless
anxiety, "Have you heard anything ?'•—
"What's the news?" Soon the news, wel
come to the Democrats came flying over the

wild with delight, and it was the easiest
thing in the world to tell a Democrat from a
Republican by * glance at their countenances

Middletown were Democrats.
Having gotten all the news

joy they crowded into Maxwell's hotel and

H. A. Nowland upon a chair demanded of
him a speech, and right heartily did he com

having been out so long. Mr. N's remarks

If the elections were all conducted ns quietly
and fairly, and the result acquiesced in as
good naturedly as it was here, there would be
excuse for military interference.
This all occurred on Wednesday, but on
Thursday morning despatches came flying
over the wires that rather cast a shadow over
the Democratic joy and came near turning it
into something else. The first new3 received

but it had the effect to damp the ardor of
the Democrats amazingly. Soon Smith came
the street with a despatch he had just re
ceived from Pickels, that Hayes was elected.
This set the Republicans to cheering—or
rather to trying, for they couldn't holla very
loud. After this there was a succession of
telegrams, one announcing Gov. Tilden's
election and the next Mr. Hayes. This was
kept up the rest of the day and stopped all
cheering, for as one Republican gentleman
remarked "One side was afraid to cheer and

One night last week some disciples of the

The Olllcisl Returns.
The returning board, consisting of the In
spectors of the elections from the various
Hundreds of this county, met in New Castle
Thursday afternoon and made the official
count of the ballots polled od Tuesday. The
result shows the Democratic majorities to be
rather less than the first reports made them,
reducing the average majority in this county
to about 500 or 550.
A Conflict of Authority.
A difficulty occurred at the polls in the
Tenth Ward, in Wilmington, on Tuesday,
during the progress of the election. U. S.
Marshall Dunn's deputies undertook the ar
rest of a man for alleged illegal voting, and
were resisted by some of the special police
appointed by Mayor Whiteley. This gave
rise to considerable trouble, and on Mayor
Whiteley interfering for the protection of his
policemen and in the maintainance of the
State authority, he was taken into custody by
Marshall Dunn, and escorted to the Custom
House. Here a conference was had between
the Mayor and the U. S. District Attorney,
Mr. Spruance, which resulted in a peaceable
solution of the difficulty, and a compromise
was made between the conflicting authorities
of the State and United States.
Other disturbances of minor importance
occurred, at this and other places but nobody
was huri.
MARYLAND AFFAIRS.
A pretty school-marm, of Wicomico county,
to prevent her scholars from being tardy,
promised to kiss the first scholar who made
his appearance at the school-house. All went
well for a few days, and the nineteen-year old
boys, anxious to participate in this fun, ac
tually got to roosting on the fence all night,
in order to be the first at school in the morn
ing. The thing became monotonous and the
teacher gave up the idea. So says the Salis

Shooting Affray at Warwick. —On Sun
day morning, 28th ult., Joseph Price, an aged

was at the time under the influence of liquor.
Mr. Cranor went to Elkton and made com
plaint, whereupon Price was committed to jail

A few years since the proprietors of Dr.Mor
ris' Syrup of Tar, Wild Cherry and Hore- ,
hound introduced it here. It was not puffed,
but sold on its merits. Our people soon found j
it to be reliable, and already it has become
the most staple and popular pulmonary rem
edy in the market. It quickly cures the worst
coughs, colds, croup, bronchitis, astema and
incipient consumption. Nothing acts so nice
ly in whooping cough, and it is so pleasant
that children readily take it. Containing no
opium, or other dangerous drug, it is as safe
as it is sure Trial size, 10 cts. ; large sizes
60 cts. and One Dollar. Sold by Arikisson h
Co Middletown.
Alto Agents for Plof- Parker's Pleasant
Worm Syrup, which never fails. Pleasant to
take, and requires no physic. Price 25 cts.
