Of the private character and standing of Mr. Sparks, it is almost unnecessary for us to say a single word. There is In the city of Wilmington who kno will bear willing testimony to the high moral worth and unspotted integrity of Mr. Sparks For a long time he held the position of Cashier of the Bank of Wilmington aud Brandywine, and having busi I , perhaps, a gentleman him, but was highly esteemed by every with that institution, for the urbanity of bis manners, and kind, social disposition.

He la a gentlem whom all classes n koto for, not with shamefacedness, nor with self-reproach, but with a sense of pride and satisfaction rarely perienced in times of party excitement. Mr. Sparks comes up exactly to the Btaudard of morality and honor laid down by the editor of the Gazette in his sheet ono week ago, by whioh he enjoined his party to measure the character of the candidates before voting. The interests of Wilmington will not—cannot —suffer in the hands of such an officer as Mr. •i all parti*'* The dignity of the office will Sparks. strengthened by his election, and a to aud in city government command the respect and challenge community.

We therefore, consider it to be the duty of every — bo he democrat or opposition—to vo Tuesday next for that randidate who is likely—judging from his associations and ante cedents—to purifiy the political atmosphere of its foul poison, and restore popular confidence by upright and virtuous administration of the affairs of tho eity.

Speaking of tho churches, there are places of worship here for nearly ©very denomination, and or three. And yet withal, ng eroded.

This creek is vigable to the extremity of the city, ami its beautiful romantic waters remiud one of the Wissahikon stream near your city. Among other buildings, I desire to notice the Custom 11 , situated Office is located. This edifice States $48,000, aud the receipts of duties for 1856, as I was told, reached the $700!!!

But Uncle Sam is rich, and, in the philanthropist. But I come uow to speak of their manufac tories. There are few cities, that have so extensive machine shops and foundries. One shop employs hundred bauds. The name of this firm is Harlan & Hollingsworth, who build i all parts of the United States Another capa cious machine factory is that of Betts, l'usey also engaged in building large vessels. There is also a foundry whose princi pal business is the manufacture of and still another that builds railroad Three cotten factories of the word—a f !-tfaiun\- lor & Co , who -— m constant operation, that employ a large number of fumulcs.

They tlio paid to the High Constable and he wus discharged. Dr. Wm. H. White being acquainted with these facts, for the purpose of mukiug capital against Mr. Huffiugton, reported and nsserled among Mr. Iluffington's friends, that Mr. H. previously to the trial of said llinger at Mayor's Court seut Thomas Hawkins, High Constable, to said Hiuger for the purpose of persuading him to use his influence with the Germans in favor of Mr. Huffington's nomination ; promising that if he would do so, the Mayor would nbandou the prosecution for keeping a tippling house. For confirmation of tbe above report of Dr. White, the reader is referred to C. M. Allmond, Esq. Thos. Hawkins being informed that such re port was in circulation, took with him Ellis San ders, and waited upon Anthony Hiuger to kuow if he ever made such a statement to Dr. White. Hinger deuied that Mr. Hawkins had ever called upon him on that subject, or that he had made any suoh declaration Dr. White after having stated the above Mr. Allmond, said, " What think you of a like Mr. Huffiugton, who will sell justice to ob tain a nomination.

Dut that this pic of tho outsiders Is somewhat hyperbolical the author will hardly deny. >Did he ever see conglo s nt a Camp Meeting ?

"The d most promising citizens ; the abandonment to dissipation of many of those who had previously led sober aud vi the destruction of health" and many other rible evils! Is all this susceptible of proof?_ What good citiz Mllll Ml I., . ruined utterly by going to a Camp Meeting? Who ever firit be abandoned to dissipation nt Camp Meet ing, who up to going there led a sober and vir life? 1 apprehend the writer if the strictures, in his zeal to Blny a giant, has nified evils so far beyond the H of 1.1 tha say, that dubious premises themselves be doubtful. If "B's" premises admissible, if his alleged facts are either uu e or exaggerated, then is the iuforeuoe, ths it is the duty of the State to prohibit Camp Meet ings, not legitimate. Again, a proper distinc tion is to he kept up between ellect. If such « and the , inu tile of great moral and physioal evils, thoy I lh should .be discontinued ; but if they are only the ocoasion of them, tho quostion is still open as to the necessity of discontinuance. St. Paul makes this distinction in the 7tb chapter of his epistle to the Homans. He contends the law is not sin, but the giving of it was the occasion of sin, for where there is no law there is gression. Our Lord himself refers to the same principle where he says, ' If I had spoken unto them they had not had sin." Be the gospel by abuse is made a savor of death, shall we therefore the wicked go to Camp wickedly, shall we therefore death preach it ? Be Meetings and give them up, aud thus permit the wioked and his followers to wrest from our hand a great ans of doing good ? The abuse of any good thing is no proof of intrinsic evil, or that it should be abandoned. I have already made this article edy pro posed, the prohibition of Camp Mootings by statutory law. If tho goverumeut has a right ta interfere with private oitiiens where they Bhall long, let ent tn the far as to say worship, it has the right to say where they Bhall, and how they shall, and when they shall. It is rather too late In the day to attempt to unite church and State uow. 1 have only to Hay, the State ought not if it could, prohibiting Buoh meetings, because in one locality circumstances pension of them. In other parts of the State is orderly and successful as ever.— she could not if ehe would interfere with the religion of her citizens in any othor than to protect them iu their religious require a they rights. Before I closo allow aguinst supposing I too prevalent at the Red Lion Camp Meeting, that 1 wish to eudorse them. There sins committed th sinning at home, aud who go there " glory in their shame !" There go for religio guard tho reader either blind to the evils by persons who would be many who , nnd who do not purp hear the gospel when on the ground. There is much trailing and money making, and far much show and parade among young people.— But is the remedy discontinuance ? Possibly it may bo. Instead of letting Htands for the sale of fruit, mêlions, candies and especially tobacco and segnrs, all suohthiugs ought to be p'rohibited absolutely. They women either, in any way distuib the religious let there be law to take hold of them, and let it be enforcod without respect to persous. monopoly be allowed, and then there c ground of complaint. Let be set up for of not needed. If L be boardiug so that loafing vagabonds may k ageinent to stay cither by day pasters aud their money making, have no encour or night. Let pions members exhort the youog against making such recreation, much less gay apparel. It - sions seasons of disions for the display strikes me perseverance in such measures of re form, will restore this great instrumentality for doing good to its original effioieucy. But still doing good to its original effioieucy. But still "B" says, "If other objections to urge against them these would be amply sufficient for their al." Now he8ays, in the beginning of his article, that "few objections oould be made to them o the physical difficulties remain. the means of pro ing the Christian religion." Was it dangerous to health then to sleep ia the woods as now ? Was it Were the tents and rnents better theu than if they we the body, they cold at such pi fauatical enough often imprudent then and there, and thus disease, is certainly true. But it is a position quite os susceptible of proof as many of the made by "B," that as great a number re urn from auch ineetiugs iu good health as pre health by remaining at home, is an equal number of attendants and non-attendants.
