Kent County Republican Ccn » vention. A OOOl >j]'LCKF/r. The County Convention of the Repub lican party was held at Dover yesterday. There was a full attendance of delegates and much interest and enthusiasm man ifested. The splendid prospect of elect ing our State and county tickets, is hav ing the most inspiriting effect upon tlie masses of tlie party ; and what is still more encouraging, is tlie fact that while there is no lack of good men for tlie sev eral positions to be filled—men not insen sible to the honor of practical preferment at the hands of tlieir fellow-citizens— there is no disposition to push tlie claims of any at the expense of tlie best interests of the party. In all tlie conventions of tlie party yet held, "select the very best men" "has been the motto. How well this senti ment was carried out in tlie convention yesterday, is shown by tlie ticket else where presented. We point to it with pride, and shalt he greatly disappointed if it is not hailed by tlie voters of Kent ns the pledge and promise of that reform which all admit is of such vast impor tance to us all. PROCEEDINGS. The Convention assembled at 12 M. Mr. Massev, Chairman of County Com mittee, called the Convention to order, and nominated Gen. A. T. A. Torheit as temporary Chairman, and Win. II. Wal lace as Secretary. Committees were ap pointed on resolutions, permanent or ganization, and credentials. Tlie Con vention then adjourned to 2} o'clock. On re-assembling, tlie Committee on I iermanent organization reported the fol owing: Gen. A. T. A. Tolbert,President; J. B. Barnard, and John Cosden, Vice Presidents. Gen. Torbert, on taking tlie chair, made a few appropriate remarks, and announced tlie Convention as ready for business. Mr. Hayes, as chairman of Committee on Resolutions, reported tiie following RESOLUTIONS : Resolved, That Uns C invention most heartily reaffirms tlie Resolutions adopt ed by the Delegates of tlie Republican Tarty at tne State Convention held at Georgetown on tlie lOtli day of this month, and recognizes tlie same as tlie platform of the party in this county. Resolved, That we commend to the vo ters of Kent County the ticket this day nominated; that we invite scrutiny into tiie character and capacity of tlie candidates presented, and only ask that, after an intelligent and impartial opin ion of their merits, they shall east their Ballots according to tlieir convictions of duty and right. Resolved, That we regard tlie interests and welfare of the laboring classes as mirk; and believing it tlie especial pro vince of Legislation to foster and protect those interests, we hereby pledge our in fluence with tiie Republican party, when it shall have tlie power, to enact a just and fair exemption law; such as have V.epii found so beneficial to the interests of all where they have been adopted. Resolved, That the mal-administra tion of our County financer —the glaring evidences of favoritism and corruption —the shameless robbery of citizens of tlieir highest prerogative, by purposely leaving them off tlie assessment lists,— are evils which call for a prompt and thorough reform ;—a reform that shall recognize that tlie people, as the sover eign power, have tlie right to know» at all times what disposition is made of tiie money which they supply; and to that end we pledge the Republican party to our economical administration of tlie af fairs of tlie County, and to sueli legisla tion as shall compel tlie proper officers to make frequent and intelligible exhib its of the public expenditures. After the unanimous adoption of tlie resolutions, the Convention proceeded to the nomination of a County ticket, witli tlie following result: Senator— Geo. V. Massey, Esq., of Do ; j as ver.

Tiie following County Executive Committee was then apjiointed, after which the Convention adjourned with three rousing cheers for tlie ticket : Executive Cmmnittee :—Manlove Hayes, Wm. II. Baggs, Lewis M. Bell, Win. P. Steward, John Woodall, J. L. Pratt, 11. S. Downs, Wm. U. Calioon, James F. Anderson. Sussex County Convention. THE COUNTY TICKET. Address to the Voters of the County. A Trumpet ('«11 for Reform. Tlie Republican County Convention met In Georgetown on Tuesday last. The dele gations were full from all the Hundreds, and tiie utmost good feeling and harmony at tended the proceedings. The only rivalry manifested was in the efforts of the different delegations to bring forward tlieir best men a« tlie nominees of the convention. The method of nominating here is somewhat pe culiar, as two sets of delegates are chosen from each Hundred, and two committees as semble simultaneously, one composed of three delegates from each Hundred to nomi nate the candidates for Sheriff and Coroner, and the other of the number to nominate the Legislature and Levy-Court branches of the ticket. This custom is peculiar and grew out of the fact that the pressure on the Sher iff's nomination is always so great that it ab sorbed the chief attention in selecting the I delegates and the remainder, and most im portant part of the work, failed to get the at tention demanded. This led to tlie present arrangement, and though with a minority party the necessity of such an arrangement is not so apparent, yet with the expectation of soon being the majority it was thought best not to alter it. So two conventions met to preform the duty of tlie day. ftHKRIFF AND CORONER. In the conventions which met to make the ^nomination for sheriff and coroner, Robert gfr, Houston, Esq., of Seaford, was chosen ^ptttinnan, and Benjamin F. Butler secretary. be * in the, On the first ballot Ell It. Sharp, of Seaford, was nominated as the candidate for sheriff, and Charles D. Evans, of Baltimore Hd., for coroner. LEGISLATURE AND LEVY-COURT. In tills convention William A. Hazzard, of Milton, was elected chairman, and Capt. D. Joseph secretary. Tlie following ticket was nominated : Senator —Daniel J. Layton. Representatives— James H. Deputy, John C. Short, Benjamin B. Jones, Dr. John F. Woods, Joseph Ci. White, William A. Green, Garrett S. Layton. Levy-Court Commiesionsrs—do\m II. Wilt bank, Broadkill Hd. ; George W. James, Little Creek Hd. ; William S. Phillips, Dags boro nd. ; John Wilgus, Baltimore Hd. j Joshua S. Burton, Lewes and Rchobnth lid. ; Gapt. John S. Atkins, Georgetown Hd. ; James E. Betts, Broad Creek Hd. When tlie ticket was completed, both conventions adjourned and tlie delegates as sembled in the Court House in company witli all others wlio chose to attend and ganize 01 - A COUNTY MEETING with Simeon PeimewiH as chairman. Wni. F. Reville, Benjwnrtn Burton and Wm. P. Orr were elected vice presidents, and ( apt. D. Joseph tHNpetar y. J. S. PreUÿBtRp, J. C. Hazzard, Ci ». Layton, II.Camion Mill W.W. Morgan were appointed a committee on Res olutions, who i^U;r oousulUtkm reported the following BESOM TIONS : ßfrshtr- frf, That this cmivei#V>t1 fftWorse the Platform of Principles adopted bv the Na tional Convention of tl.e Republican party, at Philadelphia, on the fltli day of June last, and also the Resolutions adopted at tlie con vention of the Republican liarty of this State at Dover, on the Utli of May, 1872, and at Georgetown, on the lOtliof Sept., and that this said platform and resolutions be published with the proceedings of this convention. Resolved, That the Levy Court—a court levying the taxes, and holding tlie fiurse string» of the people, is one of tlie most im portant and responsible bodies of men, within reach of (lie elective franchise. That for twenty years pad, tlie levy court of Sussex county has been open to the most grave and serious charges of conniption and favorite ism, and ims shown a want of capacity to perintond and control tlie finances of tlie county. That tlie publie taxes of our people have become intolerable—more than double what they were under any other than Démo cratie rule, and without corresponding benefit to tlie people. R'So!r,if, That this body—tlie levy court— calls for special consideration and reform, on the part of tlie independent and thought ful tax-payors of this county; and that our best melt an: required to b" selected. Re so 1 red. That a committee of five lie ap pointed to examine tlie financial condition of Sussex county, and, in nil address to file peo ple, make a plain ami full statement thereof. Resolved, That tlie levy court ought to, and will if the Republican party succeed in this county, publish annually—n statement show ing fully and truthfully—tlie condition of tlie finances of tlie county, and liow tlie monies have been collected and disbursed, well by tiie levy court as by tlie trustees tile poor. Resolml. That we, as Republicans heartily approve, endorse and adopt tlie county ticket tills day made out liy the committees of tlie county, that we recognize tlie several candi dates placed In nomination, as worthy, true and tried men, worthy to fie standard-bear ers and advocates of Republican principles, ill the approaching canvass, and wo pledge them our hearty and cordial support. Tlie committee also reported the following address : 1 ;it TO THE VOTERS OP SUSSEX COUNTY. . It is not necessary to re mind vou that your taxes arc now more than twice as much as formerly. This you nil j realize when the tax-gatherer makes his an nual demand upon you. Now the question we would like you to ask yourselves, Is,what have we, more than formerly, to show for all the money exacted of us? 'Are your roads any better? Are your poor any better pro vided for ? Are your assessments any better made? Are your elections any more expen sive ? Are your county expenses ne any greater, in any respect than formerly? If not, then why is it, that it requires twice as much money, to foot (lie county's bills, as it did in former times ? Tlie only answer is, that your money is squandered by a reckless, and incompetent management. Unnecessary roads are made at tlie ext of tlie county, in tlie interests of party f; ites; collectors, and tlieir securities are held to a strict accountability for monies col lected. County officers pav to tlieir favorites enormous prices for work done, and materi als purchased, for County, Road, and Poor purposes. By this extravagance and reck lessness, tlie county lias been run largely into debt, ill spite of the heavy taxation, anil tlie evidences of this délit— County orders —have been heavily shaved by party leaders have influence enough to get the easli for orders so purchased, and who have thus grown rich by shaving tlie. county paper. All this recklessness, extravagance, and cor ruption, lias been framed into a system, by at the expense of ti'iè'peopîe!* 0 '° g '°' V ^ This is why your taxes are constantly I increased, and your county still left deeply m d»*bt, which must be paid in the future. caï;;ÂÂv^^ySïf ltelmbli - We have this day put a ticket of honest, and competent men in the field, plcdyed to a efwffi'XmalVÄ ahÜses ' reüÛreffic current expense of the county, pay the to county debt, reform tiie management of the f times, without increasing the taxation of the i people. It is high time that a reform was effected. ! ta doited* Erery "lection cari W bv V the'n 1 ' is an endorsement of tlieir Unci management ' and it is only by a rebuke from the people at the bnlM-boc, that wholesome reform can be. brought about. In aid of this reform we solicit vour suf frage« for the ticket this day presented to affairs of the countv and a oonsemient rS. duetion of the taxes) now so remorselessly wrung from our citizens. ... T . . . . All of which were unanimously adopted and ordered to be published among the proceed ings of tlie convention. A committee was appointed to make a thorough ex amination of the condition of tlie county fi nances, with instructions to publish their re port at the earliest convenient time. The County Executive Committee was appointed as follows: Charles F. Richards, Win. P. Orr, R. A. Stewart, C. L. Morris, Wm. W. H. Hurdle, J. T. Long, N. II. Brown, G. S. Layton, W. W.

Journal says : "Levin W. Robinson, Esq., a few weeks ago set liis farm hands to throwing up marsh mud, from the edge of Crowberry Creek, on liis farm lying on tlie Choptank river, between Dover 'Bridge and I log Creek, amt when they had thrown up the mud to tlie depth of two feet, they came upon a box which, upon examination, proved to he a vat, a part of the remains of nery. Further digging led to the discovery of ten or twelve of these vats. The timber, two inch oak, was as solid as new plunk! Remnants of hides and bark were found in the bottom of these vats. When or by whom this tannery was established is not Known. The oldest inhabitants have neither recollec tion nor tradition to aid in solving the ques tion. The farm was originally patented to a Mr. Farriss, about two hundred years ago, and is still known as Farriss' Landing. lie and his descendants are all gone, and it is likely that tlie inquiry, when and by whom this recently exhumed tannery was erected, will always remain unanswered. u tan \h nt Wanser, the "Peach King."—T he Mid dletown Transcript, of Saturday, savs : "On Saturday last there were rumors afloat that W.,lt. Wanser, tlie "Peach King" of New York, had failed. Upon inquiring the facts, we learned that it was only a partial failure. Mr. Wanser had bought what was repre sented to be 25,000 baskets of peaches, at about 75 cents per basket ; but wiien tlie i 8011 for picking came on, the crops were much larger than lie anticipated. Up to a week ago tie had sold .15,000 baskets, and the or chards lie had bought had still at least l.noo baskets more in them. Had tlie orchards yielded only tlie amount represented, Mr. Wanser would have got through the season, paying all that lie agreed to pay. However, he has made satisfactory arrangements with those of whom he purchased, that is, to pay 50 cents tier basket upon all shipped up to the listh inst., anil to receive all the balance on commission. As an evidence that this ar rangement is satisfactory, and that liis cred itors have not lost coiifUfence in Mr. Wanser all of them are now shipping tlieir fruit to him, and we have not heard one word in condemnation of him." Wilmington, Sept. 25.—Mai. Lofland is in town, andismakinghostsof friends. Head dressed an immense audience in tlie City Hall Monday evening last ami lias spent the days since in calling upon his friends in this city. I lie Major is making a good impression wherever he goes. Mr.G.W. Wright, with liis good clothes on, came up to New Castle on Saturday last where ini met with the Dolly Vardeu Democrat* or mongrels. We learn that he was advised to go home and keep himself in poor health during the remainder of the canvass. The Tariff men of this city will give Mr. Lofland a cordial support as he is everywhere known to be a protectionist as •well as a Re publican. The protection policy so steadily mantained here for ten years lias done a great deal for tlie property of Wilmington, and as it is probable that desperate efforts will be made by Free Traders in the next Congress to break it down, it is very impor tant that the manufacturers and working men here should do all in tlieir power to return the Major to Congress, that Ids vote mav lie given at all times to sustain the industrial interests of the state and Nation.
