T ! mers In ■ P. THE Fit ONT STREET NUISANCE. Something for the Mayor's Notice. The residents and store keepeis of Front street are beginning to complain numerously to the city authorities, of a nuisance on that street, which was mentioned in The Heu ald of yesterday. Those who create the disturbances were mentioned as tramps. This, Captain Buckingham, who conducts business at the corner of Front and Shipley streets, states is not so; that while there are tramps among ttfbrn, the rulers are Wil mington roughs who live in that section of the cityXleader of whom is called "Reedy," and a notorious character. During the day it is bad enough, the resi dents say, to have them about swearing and drinking, but at nights it is much worse, when the numbers are re-enforced by young prostitutes, who are neither modest in their behavior or strictly moral in their language, a particular exhibition of which is made when persons are passing. These poor creatures are said to come from the different places of prostitution in this street, and are many of them young, hardly past their eighteenth year, sent out to entice these men into their hovels, and others too, that are less depraved, as has already been instanced by the robbing of an old gentleman of con siderable money in one of these places sev eral nights since. On Thursday night the police made their appearance, and observed a strict watch in that quarter of the city which had a very wholesome effect, as the presence of the roughest of these characters were not to be seen yesterday. At the corner of Front and Shipley streets, a cheap eating house is kept and this is where the most of them take their meals being accommodated at ex tremely low figures. It was here on Thurs day night that a former member of the School Board from the First Ward entered for supper, and after partaking declared that he had no money. The proprietor in sisted that he shonid pay; whereupon the ex-member of the School Board adjourned to the street and proposed selling the build ing with a lotof loose bricks, but was put to flight by the pioprietor who made his ap pearance armed with a club. The residents of Front and Shipley streets state that such scenes are of frequent occurrence and it is hoped that the Mayor will have special of ficers detailed for that quarter of the city, is he does not they will be overrun with tramps and roughs. 9 4 Domestic Markets . Yesterday afternoon the street market was large and well attended. Every thing that the human appetite could crave was there to he dealt out to those who might want It.

He'd Been to the Centennial. be They marched him into the station house, yesterday afternoon, propelled by ^ police man on each 6ide, and one in the rear. He looked weary and footsore; he didn't seem to care whether he stood up or laid down, but the preference seemed to be greatly Id favor of reclining. "Come, sir," said the chief, "what's happened to youi" "Been to the zen—ten—uial—great—est e—vent of any world on top of (hie) the earth." "Search the prisoner," said the chief, "see if he has money?" The officer went down iuto a capacious pocket in the side of the man's coat until nothing was seen of him but his legs and the tip end of a coat tail. Finally, he emerged, with something black, aud the chief reached for the supposed lu but to his astonishment It was a black bottle and held about a quart. Out of the 6ame pocket came a shaving brush and a shoe brush. But of money there was none. He was shown the Inner chamber and two minutes afterward there were heard deep sonorous tones that told the hero of the bottle and brushes didn't care a cent. ere To the Citizens of Wilmington. The Fall and Winter are approaching,and therefore, individuals will have to prepare for the season, as it is usual for people to shop before they go to purchase. Remem ber that V. E. Holmes opened business three years; the house is known as the Bos ton One Price Clothing store. Mr. Holmes, by his attention to business, has been forced to enlarge his present store very much. He is now about to remove to the new building of Dr. Tantum, which has an entrance on both Market and Shipley streets, and will be the finest house of its kind ever before opened in this city. Mr. Holmes deserves every encouragement for his enterprising spirit; the fact of there being such an estab lishment, will induce the people to leave the money here, not to Spend it in other cities. We say, buy here and encourage home enterprise. Mr. Holmes will remove about the 20th of the month. Academy of Visitation. Tills institution of learning, situated on Delaware avenue, has re-opened for the re ception of young lady students for the scholl lastie year. The management is under Mother Mary Magdalene, and yeung ladies entrusted to the care of this academy will receive every possible attention. the the ! ■ RELIGIOUS INFORMATION.

Among the prisoners that Chief O'Toole conveyed to New Castle jail yesterday was the man Davis, who the evening previous knocked an old German down on Market street. He was fined ten debars and costs; in default of which he was committed to jail. While in the cars his wife made her appearance, and falling upon his neck sob bing as though her heart would break. "I nover thought this of one I loved, she ex claimed in her grief, and when the whistle blew and the Chief told her she must leave, she did so with great reluctance. ; Dwelling Burned, [From the Milford News.] The dwelling occupied by J. Hews, on the old Dr. H. Whiteley farm, at Whiteleysburg was burned on Sunday morning last. Mr. Hews and wife left home on that morning about 8 o'clock, and about 9 o'clock the fire was discovered in the unoccupied west end of the buildings, where no fire had been used, the buildings being the same that old Dr. Whiteley had lived in, and were larger than necessary for the tenant. The neigh bors discovered the fire, and got there in time to save the most of the furniture, but the large bulldtogs were a total loss, whieli falls on Mr. Benjamin Whiteley, of Balti more. Suspicion points to a colored girl, who was living with Mr. Hews and was left in charge of the place, haying set fire to the building cither by accident or design edly.

Resolutions of the State Democratic Con* vention—The Topics of the Campaign Discussed. The Committee on Resolution of the State Democratic Convention, held at Dover on Thursday, offered the following resolutions, which were adopted. The.Democracy of Delaware, represented by the delegates in this Convention,reaffirm the attachment of the party to the princi rles of republican government. Established iy the men who framed the Federal Consti tution, and insist that only by a faithful ob servance of those principles can the just powers of the General and State Govern ments be maintained and the rights of all the people be assured. 1. Resolved, That all attempts on the part of the Executive Department of the Federal Government to interfere with elect tens in the States is a usurpation of power, subversive of the rights of the States and the liberties or the people. We therefore denounce the recent military order of the Secretary of War directing the General of the Army to distribute soldiers in the Southern States as indicative of a purpose on the part of the Administration and its supporters to pre vent if possible, a fair and free exercises of the elective franchises la those States. 2. Resolved, That the late circular of the Attorney General of the United States to the United States Marshals is an attempt to usurp the authority of the governments of the States and to place the control of the elections in the hands of unscrupulous United States Marshals, and thereby to force the election of a Republican Executive against the will of the people. 3. Resolved, That the extravagant and wasteful expenditure of the public money siuee the termination of the war has entail ed oppressive taxation and brought financial distress upon the country, and demaud, no less than the corruptions that have existed under Republican rule, a change in the management of public affairs. 4. Resolved, That we charge that much of tlie embarrassment under which the bus iness and industries of the country are suffer ing is attributable to the exhaustive drain of federal taxation upon the resources of the people, and that much of the money extorted by taxation from the people of the country has been squandered in political jobs and not appropriated to advance the interest of the country. 5. Resolved, That the administration of President Grant has been marked by a dis regard and contempt for constitutional and legal obligations and the rights and inter ests of the people. That the prolongation of Republican rule would be a continuation of the oppression, corruption and extrava gance which have existed for the last eleven years, 0, Resolved, That the true interest of the American people demand a change in the the administration of public affairs, which can only be effected by a defeat of the party controling the government. That the elec tion of Mr. Hayes, influenced as he would be by the men wbo have surrounded Presi dent Grant and shaped hi6 administration, would fail to secure purity or economy in the administration of the government. 7. Resolved, That in the candidates for President and Vice President, nominated by the National Democratic Convention at 8t. Louis, and the platform of principles enun ciated by said convention, as well as the let ters of acceptance both of Mr. Tilden and Mr. Hendricks, we have the assurance, pledge and guarantee that the success of the Democratic party in the present canvass, will insure reform in the civil service of the country, purity in the administration of the government, economy in the expenditures of the public money, reduction in taxation, prosperity to the country, and happiness to the people of every section of our common country. THE DOWNET TRAGEDT. Fhillipe in Other Quarters. The Downey mystery has not ceased to be the subject of conversation in the neigh borhood of Christiana, nor the attendant circumstances, which have been fully venMlated in these and other news paper prints Phillips was in Wilmington yesterday, and stated to a representative of The Herald, that he had never entertained any other thought than the one that he was right,and this he meant to defend by remaining in New Castle county, no matter at what risk of personal safety it might be. He further stated that at the solicitation of Mrs.Dowaey and her daughter, he had concluded not to remain at home during the night. This was to prevent a repetition of the at tack on the house, which was made not long since, more for the safety of the lady occupants than for himself, as his own safety was a matter of very little concern to him. The son living in Philadelphia has not been arrested yet, and he thinks that not being under any bail be is plotting against his life again, as he has been seen in the neighborhood since the night of the shooting. of this city. - or CENTENNIAL IN THE PULPIT.
