THJB VIOKT PASSING.
Connecticut have arisen in their might and
shattered the gold bug conspiracy against
Industry to the winds. In Massachusetts
the great mass of the Democracy are either
Irish or of Irish extraction. The same 1*
true, but In a lesser degree of Connecticut,
The leaders of the Democracy In-these*
States were knit together In oligarchical
rings, who doled out such offices as con
etaoles, watchman and such like to tbs
,_.,... . . ...
rank and fil., who fought the battles of the
party. We may remark tn pauant, that 4
ls the same here in Delaware. It Is a notable
fact that one of the class we mention was
never permitted to hifre s seat In ottr Leglc
lature—that is a place held sacred to a Set,
and It would be considered a desecration to
permit one of the tabooed to enter. In the
language of onr leading Democrat, "tb*y
have no tics of birth, marriage or business
to bind them to the State." It .Is easy to
reach a conclusion from this proposition.
To go back, however, to the East, this fac
tor of discontent, vainly sought for years
Ipast an exponent, a leader. Butler, with
his large and constant Intercourse with
them, sought their aid and they gave it.
No matter what may be said of him he was
always the strong, steady, solid friend of
the working Irish In Massachusetts. TheM
uprising of the American workingmen
against tbe crushing of capital and con
traction was fused with the Irish element,
and they are now under the lead of him
io a contest, which may lead to success and
profit to all. It would appear that hla
former desertion of the Democracy, and his
bitter fight against the party for seventeen
years have been condoned, and that the
disgust of the rank and file, on account of
tbe Insolent disregard of their just claims
to party recognition, Intensified by the
frightful want, resulting from the dlshones*
policy of the gold huge, all combine to
compel the acceptance of Butler, hoping
through him to overthrow th* oligarchical
ring who ruled tbe Democracy for their
own profit, and are crashing the Hfb out of
the poor for the benefit of themselves.
Major McCafferty, who was temporary
chairman of Democratic Convention, is s
man of distinguished valor, well educated
and every way reputable, but has always
been tsbooed by tbe Russells, Avfcrys,
Whitneys and Gastons—bis name was oh'
Jectlonable. The same may be said of J.
Boyle 0Rellley, who Is an accomplished
poet, and one of the best newspaper writers
In New England. We know that O'Reilly
has been for years treated badly by the
blue blood set, ahd It Is no wonder that he
ihas entered the fight against them. The
domination oi Butler is a popular protest
against the Venetian Democracy of Massav
chusetts, and an experiment of ornshed
industry to help Itself.
In Connecticut It is noticeable, that the
men named upon the ticket are, with on*
exception, *11 new. The press report does
net give us the plstterm, but'the Commit*
tee on Resolutions ere bitter enemies of tbs
dishonest gold bug policy.' 8«n*tor Eaton
was so disgusted at the Insolence of plain
insn arraigning him for l«s West British
policy, that a dispatch from New Hwvea,
last night, says he "left the city In disgust.
Sorrow always follows sin, and defeat must
come sooner or later to every man, little
apd Mr, who yoted to enrich the rich and
The tpdlgnatlon at the action of the Dem
ocratic caucus Is all pervading, and they
may as well know that their flimsy pretext
of there being being oo other applicants Is
all bosh. In such they ought to have ad
j mrncd, as Dr. Shortlldge waa not eligible,
he being a Republican office holder.
The Bemoeracy upon the stmt are
anxiously Inquiring If tbe Water Depart,
ment Is to be reserved as the special
appannage of the Mclntlre family, Not
long since tbe father and brother of Col.
Mclntlrs was there, While .he was on the'
basin at $18 a week. In tbe entire city of
Wilmington are there no Democrats worthy
to fill the place but one of that family f
The Colonel has a good place; must he
have a better one! He Is a good fellow,
but he ought not to want everything. Con
tentment Is a virtue.
THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD.
Tbe charging comedy written from
Goldsmith's old-fashioned comedy, " Tbs
Vicar of Wakefled," ,was reproduced last
evening at the Opera House by Sherry'*
New York Theatre Company, before a lair
audience which, considering the play»should
have been larger. W 1th one or two excep
tions the psrts were well sustained, and in
each a manner as to bring the beauty and
pathos of the drams out in a masterly
Th* part of Dr. Primrose, the Vicar, was
very ably supported by Mr. Danljal £.
Belton. Mrs. Helen H. Houghton per
formed the extremely difficult part of
Olivia In a manner that waa highly compli
mentary and creditable. Mr. Drew fi&
Burehnell was also good, and while Mr.
Roberts did quite well In the first character
se Squire Thornhill, there wss room for
~ mnch more feeling in the last set.
On th* whole the performance gave satis
faction, and we Hope that they may visit
our city again and can assure them a hearty
