WILMINGTON, MAY 4, 1876. FOB PRESIDENT ! THOMAS FRANCIS BAYARD. Subject to the Decision of the St. Louis Convention. ■ECEDEBS FROM THE UNION LEAGUE. A new organization in the city of New. York styled the Republican Reform Club has sprung into existence. The purposes which the club will endeavor to accom plish, is, to signalize the opening cf the new Centennial of our national existence having nominated by the Republican party for President not a mere political partisan, but a statesman of tried character in sympathy with the best sentiments of the people on all public questions, con versant with the affairs of government, discriminating in the choice of public servants, one who will thoroughly reform the public service, and whose name alone will be a guarantee of official integrity, oi wise and prudent administration, and ol fearless enforcement of the laws. Then : w organization is a secession from the Union League Club. The whisperings of this secession from the club has been beard lor some time, but has now become a practical fact. Judging from their avowed pur poses, their Presidential candidate will not be taken from the present list of Re publican aspirants. It is unquestionably an anti-Conkling and anti-Custom House movement, but whether pro-Blaine, pro-Morton, pro-Bris tow or pro all or any other Republican as pirant, is one of the mysteries which the future must determine. The manifesto of the seceders is causing a great deal of talk in political circles. Negotiations are pen ding for a brown stone lront not far from the Fifth Avenue Hotel, as the head quarters ef the club. It is impossible to dissociate this Reform Club movement from the political conciliation called by Mr. Bryant of the Post, Mr. Schurz and President Woolsey to meet in the city of New York shortly. Unless the Cincin nati Convention jjuts forth a candidate for the Presidency, worthy of the Centennial yeay the reform party will not support llie nomination, and will look elsewhere for a standard bearer. This reform party may support Bristow, Adams or Everts, but will not support Blaine, Conkling, Morton or any other mere politician that the Re publicans may nominate. or is of at to THE THORN X PATH. Presidential aspirants, especially Repub lican ones, are traveling a thorny path. A Presidential candidate should, before he first cherishes such ambition, cover up all tracks of his former misdemeanors. Blaine thought he had scratched dirt enough over his crooked tracks to prevent further fol lowing of his trail, but the thin covering is being removed. Other allegations are made that his statement did not cover, and there are indications now that the House will go to the bottom of the matter. The doughty showman of the "bloody shirt," Morton, is called upon to refute the charge that he failed to account properly for the money he received while Governor of Indiana during the war. This ensan guined shirt showman has also become discernable in the back ground of whiskey ring investigations, and there is a preva lent impression that it has required extra ordinary exeriions to prevent positive evi dence coming out that he received large amounts of money from tho rings ostensi bly for political purposes. The probabil ity is that boih of these bloody shirt gen tlemen may have an opportunity to vindi cate themselves before an investigating committee. Blaine and Morton should have avoided all corrupt acts and crooked ways before they put themselves in train ing for the Presidential course. It is a blessed thing for the Republican party that the Democrats are bringing for ward all the damaging revelations so as to kill off the vulnerable candidateslieforc the Cincinnati Convention entrusts any of (hem with the leadership in the national contest. THE HOVEL EXVOBTIOH. The rumors of increased rates of hotel charges in Philadelphia during the Cen tennial season, is creating considerable ex citement throughout the country, and is receiving merited condemnation by the press of the interior counties of Pennsyl vania. The proprietors of the Continental in Philadelphia admitted to a representa tive of the Sunday Sun of that city that they would Increase their rates fifty cent s per day more during the Exhibition, so that the impression prevalent in the South and West, that the Philadelphia hotels in tended to take advantage of the Centennial season to charge unreasonable prices is well founded, and justifies the severe com ments of the press on the gross imposition. The ordinaiy rates of the Continental is $4.50, but to show their respect for Cen tennial visitors, and their great desire lo make the Centennial a highly creditable Exhibition, they will impose an additional fifty cents on guests to that hostlery. This spirit of Philadelphia hotel keepers to charge their Centennial guests extra prices, is rather a hard commentary on Phila delphia's disinterestedness in her big show and of her appreciation of foreign visitors. In commenting on the increased rate of Philadelphia's principal hostlery, the Sun very truly says: It is theprinoiple of the thing and not the extra half dollar. The hotel ihat cannot make money by charging four and-a-half-dollars per day in a city where everything is so cheap and plentiful as in Philadelphia ought to give way to some other line of business. THE CUBAN WAK. After a struggle which has now lasted upwards of sewn years, we find the area of Spanish domination on the Island of Cuba growing gradually smaller every year. Yearly the conflict waxes fiercer, and vainly the might of Spain is hurled against the forest and mountain defended Cuban patriots,who are steadily approach ing Havana and pushing their enemies off or under the soil of Cuba. An awful sac rifice of the life of the young men of Spain is made to satisfy the cupidity and vanity of the Peninsular Government and its agents in Cuba. The Spanish troops engaged in the war at present in Cuba are mostly boyB drafted under the conscription laws that were in force during the civil war in Spain. The majority of these poor boys have scarcely attained the age of twenty years, and being brought directly from a temperate climate to a tropical one and exposed to all the hardships of a guerrilla warfare, they fast succumb to the terrible forms of disease in the tropics. The soil of Cuba seems to swallow the enemies of that levely island, for army after army lias marched into her dense forests and rugged defiles, hut have never returned, for even disease is patri otic in Cuba, and yellow fever and small pox mow down the columns of Spain as effectually as the bullet and machete of the Cuban insurgents. THE PHI El' JUSTICE. The appoiaiment of the Ehief Justice must be prompt, as the filling ef the va cancy is a legal necessity. All writs issued must be tested in tbe name of the Chief Justice. Nearly the whole legal business of our county for the coming term, is de pendent upon the filling of the vacant of fice in a few days. There are many excel lent gentlemen named for the office, viz.: Messrs. Dupont, McCauiley, Lore, Cc megys, Sauls bury, McFee,and Gray. We heard it suggested by many Democrats that if the Governor were to promote Judge Wooten to be Chief, it would be a fitting honor to so worthy and able man, and would properly crown the declining days, of a pure and upright Judge. That he is eminently well fitted to be Chief Justice, is best proven by the fact that he has fre quently presided during the illness of the late Chief Justice Gilpin, some time ago. This would also save Judge Wooten from tbe undeserved mortification of having a younger and untried man, placed over him. It would also render the filling of Judge Wooten's place easier, and the ap pointee, in the natural course of things, might look forward to fill the Chief Jus ticeship, at no very remote day. to PI HUH MUCH MOOItEYIBN. There is now what is termed Pinchbeck Moody ism. Other clergymen are at tempting to imitate the great Boenerges of revivalism. Some Rev. gentlemen who have heretofore entertained their congre gations with highly classical sermons, are now ignoring learned expressions and speaking in Meody language, having be come convinced of the vitality ef his mode of preaching. One of New York's Rev. gentlemen in particular, who preached highly classical sermons, whose periods were polished, his rhetoric uniuqieachable; his learning always accurate; his illustra trations wrought with artistic precision, and quoted fine sentiment* front th$ JfOOfr, now appears in the pulpit without manu script, uses no more dainty rhetoric, drops the poets and uses simple language, or what may be properly called Pinghbeck Moodyism. Would it not be well for many other Rev. gentlemen to take on Brother Moody's ways. SUBMIT TO NO NONSENSE. President Grant won't stand any of Gen. Custer's nonsense. Custer lias incurred the Imperial Censer's eternal displeasure by his naughty talk about the President's friends. For telling tales out of school, Grant inflicts the punishment upon him of ordering him to his regiment in Dako ta. Custer has done no duty since he left his regiment as a line officer early in the late war. For his little committee talk, he has been relieved from duty as com mai ding officer under brevet rank, and goes to his regiment simply as Lieutenant Colonel. Should the talkative Colonel ever be so fortunate as to be breveted a General, again, and do no duty except as a general officer, he will be~likely to keep very mum aboufVhat he may know of the crookedness of the President's friends. The Imperial Ceaser. will not submit to any such nonsense. THE rMUHT OF HABB1NOTON. And now comes the news that Richard Harrington, one of the chief conspiritors of the safe burglary, in order to establish his innocence, lias run off to South Amer ica. The Washington Ring furnish him money for his escape, as they compromised the interests of Henry D.,Cooke and his eoncern in the "real estate pool" with the trustee, in the hope of escaping investiga tion by Congress. Harrington is in the intimate confidence of the Ring thieves at the Capital. They used him as a tool and made him a confederate in all their vil iiany. Some time ago when Harrington was a guest of Boss Shepherd's, he said he would never stand another trial, and he made no bones in publicly declaring that if his friends did not furnish sufficient funds to carry him off out of the reach of justice, that some others besides himself would sutler. OBITUAKY All that was mortal of John Cochian, of Middletown, was yesterday consigned to his mother earth. His spirit having al ready, witnessed those joys, which no human eye ever saw. His death leaves a void in society, about Middletown, that will not be easily filled. Of a joyous, gener ous, and manly nature, he was the soul of every circle of society, he entered, diffu sing his own joyousness, and banishing all gloom, by his presence. His virtues were many and manifold:—brave, generous, and charitable. His loss will be deplored, alike by rich and poor. The oldest fishermen say they never knew the fishing operations to be so interrupted as at present in the fisheries of Albemarle and Pimlico Sounds. They report great de vastations being made upon the herring schools by the myriads of blue fish that in habit the entrances to the iulets. The blue fish feed upon the berriugs, and when their appetites are satisfied they destroy them by the million, and the surface of the sea for miles, streams with the blood of the vic tims. The aspect of political affairs in all quar ters of the country are ominous of happy re sults for the Democracy and for the na tion. New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania will occupy their rightful positions in head ing the Democratic columns lu their march to victory next November. On next Wednesday, May 10, at the opening of the Centennial, there will be an orchestra of 150 and a chorus of 800. The orche#tra will play the national airs of all the countries represented at the Exhibi tion. Mr. Habbis of Virginia has Introduced a bill in relation to Congressional witnesses, which it is to be hoped will give the House and Senate power to hold wituess like the infamous Kilbourne, despite of the District Judge, Carter. Why He Mugged tbe Girl. [From the Jersey City Herad.] A couple frem the country came to the city yesterday, procured a license and were married in due form. They left on the after noon train for home. They attracted the attention of every passenger by their lavish display of affection. The young man kept his arm tight around the bride's waist, as if he was afraid she would vanish before he knew It, and she didn't seem to care if ho hugged her right along for half a day. She was so terrible homely that everybody won dered how he could love her, and by and by he seemed to think an explanation would be In order. He borrowed a chew of to bacco of a man near the door and re marked: "I'm going to hug that girl all the way home, though I know she isn't putty." " I wouldn't » briefly replied tbe man. " And that's where you'd fool yourself," continued the young man. "When I'm hugging a hundred • acres of clean, nice laud, with forty head of stock on it, I can make the homeliest girl In the world look like an angel to me."
