The Republican party received Its coup de grace on Tuesday In this State—never to rise aga In. No astute far seeing man could have failed to see this result for years past. The tiuth Is, Republicanism was an exotic In Delaware, it never was racy of the soil; no tap root of Its policy ever penetrated the substance of public opinion In this State. During the war, every' one who anxiously thirsted for unearned wealth, sought It In contract—the reward of loud mouthed loy alty; then the corollary of Republicanism. The humanitarian, seeking the liberation of the slave, fell Into the ranks of truculent contractors and sutlers as their goal—lay In the same direction. Brave, Impulsive and patriotic men drew the sword, and while in tbe army Inhaled au atmosphere of abuse against the Democracy and lapsed Into the arms of those they associated with, the war party of the country. It was thus the con tractor, the philanthropist and the patriotic warrior all cohered, and marched onward to accomplish the same object. The libera tion of the slave was the proper climax of the party which freed them, and from that day formed tbe anti-slavery man proper ceased to be a Republican propagandist. The contractors, when no more plunder was to be had, was disgusted and soured, and cowboy like, went over to the enemy. The soldier, when the war closed, again entered the ranks of civil life, and his patriotic Im pulse restored him to the Democracy, the party that at all times was the champion of constitutional and well ordered liberty. As the old men, seared In antagonism to the Democracy, and who were wedded to life opinions died out, there were none to take their place. Gradually the Republican party, mortified at the extremetles, one rural district alter another was lost them; and at last tbe contest was waged in the chief city of the State. Tne result of Tues day settled the question. The party on that day was finally conqured In this State —It may as well furl Its banner and let Its members take service iu tho ranks of the victors. The Republican party Is dead— Democracy, strong In the might of right, will not Indulge In exultation, but merely direct its editors to Insert a notice of its deaease, In Delaware, upon the third day of September, 1878. Let us have peace. Remember that the nomination election for a representative in tbe Legislature will take place on Saturday next, the seventh Inst., between the hours of 12 and 7, P. M., at the regular voting places throughout the city. The importance of this nomina tion should not be overlooked, as the choice of a competent man to represent the varied Interests of this city Is of vital concern to Its citizens. Captain Gallagher will now run the Odor less Excavating Combination. LOCAL AFFAIRS. HELPING THE NEEDY. ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS FOB THE SUFFERERS IN THE SOUTH. The work of raising subscriptions for the yellow fever sufferers Is going on grandly in thla city. The following were raised by the Society of Friends: Wm. P. Bancroft, Charles Canby, William Richards Eliza Cloud, John Ferris, Joseph Brlnghurst, Samuel M. Pusey, Geoige 8. Grubb, Cash, D. H. Kent & Co., Edward Brlnghurst, Charles Warner, Hannah Sblpley, A.

There Is no doubt of both the capacity and Integrity of our, new incumbent. He begins with the good wishes of every class of our people, and we are conscious he will retire from the office with universal ap. proval of his administration. The selection of E. B. Frazer as Clerk of Council, Is also a most excellent selection. There are few men more competent for the office—or better fitted to perform Its func tions. Mr. Frazer Is well educated, a first class penman, and clerk; he is a man of In tegrity, and we are codscIous he will most credltaoly fill the office. Hla election Is a proper acknowledgment of his unflinching adherence to hla party In the dark days of the past. Mr. Daley, of the Ninth ward, who was elected bailiff, Is a young man of first rate character, and a sterling Democrat; his election is a just and proper reward for party duty faithfully performed While upon this subject, we cannot re frain from paying a proper compliment to the outgoing officers:—They deserved well ot the citizens, and they carry with them the warmest regard of their fellow-cltlzeua. $ 2000 2000 2000 300 2000 25 00 500 200 200 5 00 2000 20 00 100 00 300 2 00 1000 1000 500 500 500 500 100 500 5 00 300 100 100 1000 500 1000 1000 1000 1000 $36300 YOUTHFUL GALLANTRY. Yesterday during the heavy shower, which passed over this city shortly after noon, the gutters on Delaware avenue, at Washington street, were so overfiooded with water, that pedestrians were unable to go across the street without getting their feet wet. Among the - many persons de tained were a number of small school children, boys and girls, pupils of primary school No. 3, at Eleventh and Washington streets. While they were afraid to venture, a bright little fellow, who stood quietly by, took off his shoes and stockings, rolled up his pants, and one by one carried the mem bers of the fair sex on his back over the gutters, landing them safe and dry on the other side. The example of this young gal lant was quickly followed by his comrades, and In a short time all were carried over without getting a ducking. HE WANTED TO BE AN ANGEL. Yesterday morning a colored man named Johnson said he Intended to kill himself, and taking a box containing two razors, started ont of the house. This was com municated to Officer Jorda'n, who followed him, and at Eleventh and French streets overtook him and captured the razors. He then took him to the Hall, where he Is cow confined. The cause assigned to this 1s domestic trouble, but some seem to think it owing to disappointment In the result of the election, as he was perhaps looking to appointment on the Captain's police force. RECOVERY HOPED FOR. Samuel M. Harrington, Esq., for some time past has been so 111 that his life was despaired of by his friends. Yesterday Dr. Bullock of this city and a well-known sur geon of Philadelphia opened an abscess In his hip, which had been concluded as the only means of saving his life. It Is now hoped that he will recover. MILITARY AFFAIRS. At the annual meeting of Company C, Du Pont Guards, at their armorr In the Masonic Temple last evening. The follow ing civil officers were elected to serve during the ensuing year: President, A. B. Conrad; Secretary, A. S. Robinson; Treas. urer, L.

He is very much pleased with his trip, and speaks In the highest terms of Coney Island, which he says Is visited every day by many thousand persons. LOCAL NOTES.

FRAZER BBQ., ELECTED CLERK; OF COUNCIL— FRESIDENT LICHTENSTEIN'S ADDRESS. as The regular meeting of Council ratified by the charter, for organization was held last evening. Long before the hour of con vening all the opening space optslde the railing was crowded with spectators to the number of from 300 to 350 who had come In out of curiosity to see the organization affected. A little later than 7.30 o'clock President Lichtenstein ascended to his chair and lightly rappffig with the gavel made the usual remark, "the Council will please come to order." After the roll was f ca(led MY Paynter moved that a committee ot thtm . be appointed and the rules were sus pended and the President named Messrs. Paynter, Norton and Adams on that com mittee. The committee retired and on a motion , of Mr. Guthrie a recese of 10 minutes was taken. When Council re-assembled, Mr. Maxwell stated that before the committee reported he had a resolution to offer wbieh-kad been left over at the previous meeting. The reso lution was as follow : Resolved- That the thanks of this body be and are hereby tendered to James; Lang, as a token of regard for the faithful man ner In which he has discharged hie duty and' the kind and obliging manner It ' he has always served Council, adopted. The Committee on Credentlala the ' called on, reported that they had fod John P.

Town- * send, James McGUnchey, A. J. Hart, Aaron Conrad, H. W. Downing, P, Chandler, P! Wood, R. W. Rowe, L. P. Lynch. waftc-i Mr. Paynter moved that the gentlemen'1 named should be qualified members pf •, Council, and the oath ot office was adminis tered by James W, WatsoD, J. P. i On motion of Mr. Paynter, Messrs Payn. ter and Jones were appointed a committee to escort the Honorable Mayer-elect to the " chamber. .-'j •mux emrt Mr. Allmond was broughtin and the oath, of office was administered by Esquire Wat son alter which President Lichtenstein sidd S Mr. Mayor, in behalf of the citfzess It ial i my pleasure to tender our congratulations > to the position you have been rfected to as chief Magistrate of the city. 5 fie honor Is great, no less however than the retppsslbil- , lty. You have been elected by the people, not for a party, not for a nationality, not for a creed, not for any "Ism" of any name, but lor the whole people. We as members of the City Council claim the privilege, that any citizen, whether white or black, rich ot poor, living lo mansion or hoyel, may not' equally claim your sympathy, pay. Mr. M ayor the errors of the important, the poor should rather receive your clemency and mercy in a larger measure. .n-Y.c: i> Our citizens without regard to party have great confidence not only In your integrity and honor, but in yoUr determination to so administer the duties of your office as tp re flect honor upon yourself, on those who so strongly advocated your fitness for the posi tion, and who elected you. Your reputation sir, Is unexcelled by any citizen In your community, you will construct yourself step by step, day by day; let us hope that the people may feel as much pain to part with you at the termination pf your office as they feel pleased to day at your election. We as members of Council are ever ready to act with you to the bast of our ability, and true to our convictions. "I shall try," replied Mr. Allmond, "lo ' carry out the trust reposed In me, and to fill the office to which I have been elected to the best of my ability." On motion of Mr. Paynter, Countll pro ceeded to the election of a clerk, EJ B. Frazer was nominated by Mr. Paynter, and William H. Foulk by Mr. Adams. Mr. McGlIucby and Jones acted aa tellers. Tho result of the balloting shows that twenty > votes were cast, Mr. Frazer receiving twelve •, and Mr. Foulk eight. Mr. Frazer was de dared elected, and the oath of office was administered. Mr. Taylor moved that an election for bailiff was gone Into. Mr. Knight nomi nated James F. Dally and Mr. Chandler James Lang, and the same tellers acted. Dally received twelve votes and Lang eight., President Lltcbensteln then addressed the Council. He said that fora good city gov ernment It was not necessary for men to be of a high order of culture. They should be good business men, should be punctual and honest and ready to speak and vote their convictions. Those men who hold up for the best measures can be called the best party men, because they reflect credit on the party which elected them. He said he desired to refer specially to the careless manner some committees had of dealing with petitions and communications, some time never reporting upon them at all. The right of petition Is sacred to the American people, and to keep the petition In yeur pocket Is a discredit to the body and to the petitioner. I would also ask that close attention be paid to the assess ment books, because It can be readily seen that a mistake might occur of 1100,000 and the board cot know it. The speaker ad vocated the repeal by the Legislature of the act of taxing land, and also recom mended that a change be made In tbe pres-'i ent manner of taxes for city and county;,* purposes, so that personal property might bare a share as well as real estate. Hi 3 closed by urging harmony among alii the , members. On motion of Mr. Taylor the rules of'the last council were adopted as the rttlCs for the present one. On motion adjourned. or fin it ft was ■ that 1 1 J.iuorri In'; SQUIRRELS GOING WEST.
