The strategy did not succeed. General
Garfield said in his speech at the soldiers

day, that oat of the 180,000 who were cap
tires in Southern prisons during the war,
and where they suffered such untold hor

so of all the soldiers in the Union army,
fighting at the front, practically all of them
scorned this overture of the Democracy.

had our fathers abode in their breaches
and prudently refused to go to the aid of
that Massachusetts which loves usbo dear

gratitude? What individual can say on
his conscience that he has more or knows
more now than if our forefathers had
been sensible, instead of generous, and
remained loyal to the best government in
the world? From our toll, our, blood, and

much so that she could afford to impover

thousands of our men. Their rejoici% is
hearty and just, but what we have to be
joyful over is to this deponent unknown.
It ia to our deliberate opinion that the only
proper and just expressive war In which
the8outhern people could celebrate the

to the abuse of the "signers." We are
"loll" enough. We've been whipped and

Gen. (Jnrfirld Prepared and Tor
Washington, July 7.?The Republican
Committee are preparing to meet the
glanders raked an about General Garfield's
alleged connection with the De Golyer
pavement contract, the Credit Mobilier
affair, and the salary grab, squarely. This
they will do by the publication broadcast
of General Garfield's speech made in
Warren, 0., on September 12, 1874, in re
ply to the attack upon his official record,
in which General Garfield told his con
stituents, lace to lace, the entire history ol
all those proceedings. The committee
calls attention to the fact that this speech
was made at a time when the charges
were fresh, and the public sentiment was
in the highest degree exciting. The ac
cusation in all their details had been
circulated in great numbers in General
Garfield'B district, but so fally wore they
met that he was re-elected in that elec
tion and the two following elections, and
in 1880 was elected to the United States'
Senate by the unanimous vote of the Re
publicans in the Ohio Legislature.
Theletterof Hon. Jere S. Black, written
February 16,1878, fully exonerating Gen.
Garfield, as by Mr. Blaclc's personal
knowledge, from the accusations In regard
to the Credit Mobilier affair is added, as
well as a quotation from a speech from
Senator Thurman, with an editorial in
dorsement of the New York World, and
another quotation from a speech by Hon.
Milton 8peer. a Democratic Congressman
from Pennsylvania, delivered at the Han
cock ratification meeting in Pittsburgh, all
I to the same effect. Fifty thousand copies
of these documents, which make a pamph
let of seventeen pages, are being printed
The committee is also sending out the
following documents: A speech made by
General Garfield In the House of Repre
sentatives laat March, entitled "The New
Nullification;" speeches made on the 10th
of March by Congressmen Richardson
and Crowley of New York, upon the sub
ject of contribution for political purposes;
an extract from a speech by Hon. Wm. P.
Frye, delivered on the 20th of March, up
on the funding bill, calling attention to
the marvelous financial history of the
country during the last twenty years: a
speech by Congressman Dunnell, of Mln
neaota, upon the political riders and the
neglect of Important public measures, and
the laat exodus speech of Senstor Win
dom. Besidee these, a supply of Treasury
statements, made in compliance with the
Senate resolution, showing that the ex
penses growing out of the rebellion
amounted to more than 18,000,000,000, has
been procured for circulation.
The Democrats are doing nothing in this
line. The fact that all speeches made by
members of that party in Congress during
the last twenty years have been upon that
aide of each issue which is ao universally
acknowledged to have been the wrong as
well aa unsuccessful side, deprives them of
any reeourcee in the way of Congreesional
campaign literature. A prominent member
of the Democratic Committee, in reply to a
question aa to what they proposed to get

Perry street. He came direct from Hew
York, where he attended a meeting of the
National Republican Committee last
week. A representative of the press call
el on the Senator this afternoon,
and an informal talk on political topics
drew out some interesting points.
TUK NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
In reply to the questions as to what was
the feeling among the members of the Re
publican National Committee, Senator
" There were some Bigns of a lack of har
mony at first, but these passed away and
the committee is now in good working or
der. Coming almost direct from Chicago
as the members did, the disappointment
over the defeat of their candidates pre
vented very much enthusiasm, especially
among the tirant men. They had made
the fight in the consciousness that the
FIELD ALONE COULD HEAT THEM,
and naturally felt sore. But these feelings
are gradually passing away, and every sec
tion of the party will be found working
with every other in effective harmony.
The Grant men are the strict party men?
the stalwarts?and there are no (ears of
disaffection on their part."
"Will the leatlera, Conkling, Cameron
and Logan, be found heartily at work?"
"Without a doubt Logan is enthusiastic
for Garfield. Cameron will do all he can,
though his health is miserable, and Conk
ling will come in; yes, sir, Conkling will
come in. Their States are their strength,
and it would be the unwisest policy to
throw them away. Yet it will be no child's
play to carry the coming election, and I
deem it of highest importance that we
should do so. While I have no doubt
OABHELD CAN BE ELECTED,
the fight will be close one. The country
has reached that point where the party
which goes into power now stays there. If
the Republicans are successful now, their
future in power Is assured. The census
will so largely increase their representa
tion in the North over the South that the
Democracy can have no hopes for suc
cess, while there will be several new States
admitted in the neat few years, almost cer
tain to be Republican. On theotherhand,
tliould the Democrats go In, with every
thing in their own hands, and their con
trol of the host of offices, it would be
ilitficult to dislodge them. They would so
gontrol the admission of territories aa to
materially change the political conditions

"There has been some talk. Senator,
bat Qarlleld will not be strong in tbe

a the mass of colored voters. What is
rotir opinion on that point?"
"While Garfield cannot he said to be aa
veil known to tbe colored people aa sev
iral other Republicans talked of for the
Presidency, he la by no means unknown,
ind they are being made better acuuaint
)d with him every day. The intelligent
eaders of the colored Republicans, are aa
well posted in the South aa anywhere, and
be people will not suffer."
"Have the Republicans any hope In tbe
TWO STATUS TO WORK FOR.
"Very little. I think, however, that we
lave a chance to carry West Virglnja In

Ktwer. The Republicans are making an

THE PEACH CROP.
A bo at 4.000,000 or Baskets Expectcd
Where They Will Come Prom-Interest*
lag Compilation of Estimates.
Middletown, Del., July 7.?Middle
town will thia year reanmeherold place aa
the peach emporium of the peninsula, and
the farmers are eagerly watching for the
ripening harvest of lnacloos fruit. A care
ful survey of the peach-growing sections,
and information received from various
sources, haa resulted in a calculation that
about 4,000,000 of baskets of peaches will
be shipped from the various points of
shipment on the peninsula. The follow
ing estimate will ahow where the peaches
are expected to come from aad the proba
ble routes to market:
OVER THE DELAWARE RAILROAD.
From Middletown, 375,000; from Arm
strong's Station, 75,000; from Townseod
(including shipments over Kent and
Queen Anne's Bailroad), 250,000; from
Clayton, 220.000; from Delaware and Ches
apeake Bailroad, 320,000; from Kent
county Bailroad, 370,000; from Dover 150,
000; from Wyoming, 100,000; from Mor
ton, 25,000; from Brenford, 90,000; from '
Woodside, 14,000; from Canterbury,
25,000; from Felton, 20,000; from Har- '
rlngton. 50,000; from Farmington, 20,000; ;
from Greenwood, 25,000; from Bellville,
75,000; from Seaford, 100,000; from Laurel,
200,000; from Eastern Shore Railroad, 1
100,000; Total Delaware Railroad, 2,581,- 1
In addition to this the Junction and
Breakwater railroad has made an estimate 1
that along the line of their roqd they will
gather about 75,000 baakets for shipment
to New York, and that about 3,500 baskets
will come north and be Bent to market by
way of the Delaware road and its connec
THE WATER SHIPMENT ESTIMATES
are always less certain than the others, but i
last year's calculation of 900,000 baskets to '
Baltimore was within 40,000 baakets of the j
actual number shipped. This year the l
most reliable information which can be <
depended upon with equal confidence as
that of last year justifies the following 1
calculation: Secretary creek section, Den- <
ton, 35,000; Ohoptank river, 28,000; Ches
ter and Sassafras rivers, 350,000; Buck 1
creek, 28,000 ; 6. S. Steamboat Company,
15,000; other routes, 45,000; total 026,000 i
Tbe estimate thai there will be 250,000
baaketa ahipped by water to Philadelphia
is one which depends upon circumstances
for its verification; if Philadelphia is a
poor market, very little fruit will go there
by boat, as it will be sent to more favor
able markets by rail, but if the 260,000
baskets do not reach market that way
they will by the Delaware railroad and
must be counted in the estimate for the
crop. The recapitulation for the entire
crop expected to be shipped is as follows:
By Delaware railroad, 2,571,500; by water
to Baltimore, 620,000; by water to Phila
delphia, 250,000; by water to Newport,
75.000; total shipment, 3,532,500 baskets.
The orchard shipments-last year were
3,480,000 baskets, so that it will be seen
that the crop this year promises to be quite
as large as that of last year. It is sale to
estimate the home consumption at 55,000
baskets, which would put the entire crop
estimate at about 4,000,000 of baskets, a nd
if the fruit will be ns remunerative as it
was last year, the peninsula will be over
$1,500,000 richer by the crop.

ple of Virginia are to be best subserved by

electoral ticket nominated by this conven
tion is instructed in behalf of those candi
dates, and they are cordially commended
to the earnest support of every member of
the Readiustere organization in Virginia.
Seventh?That the Federal Government
should be administered in exact con
formity with the Constitution, as it
is the duty of all to accept in good faith
the results of the war, and that the aim
of statesmanship should be to establish
peace and good will between all sections
of our common country and all classes of
people; that the duties and privileges and
the hardens and benefits of the Govern

The Republiquc Francaise, of Paris, says:
The Sultan's refusal to obey the Powers
would be equivalent to the dissolution of
his empire, and the forfeiture of power by
his race. Anything short of absolute re

the Powers, for if the Porte merely de
clares itself unable to deliver the territory
awarded to Greece, the latter is quite able
to take it, and we do not Bee why that
