W* call attention to the advertisement

necessary buildings in good repair. It g
location is healthful, is of easy access to
rail and water communication, and in prox'

advantages. It» sal* furnishes a rare op

Saturday night, under the chilling Influence
of empty seals, there being a very small
audience to greet him. The lecture was.
of course, deeply interesting, and it is to be
regretted that a larger number of our citi

laudable effort to famish a high order of
Intellectual entertainment for the people ol
Wilmington. We hope, however, and be
lieve, that a salutary Impression will have
been made upon the minds of the yonng

lectures were especially procured to be de

The Democrotto party atart in tbe Preal
dentlal raee handicapped with the odium
to the cowardly
which properly attaches to tne cowamiy
Electoral Commission. It la Impossible to
disguise the fact that a stunning blow was
given to 'the enthusiasm of the Democrat!,,
* k ,v thntr leaders to
masses by the failure of their leaders to

reap
'70. Why, »ay they, discuss the availability
candidates! Why Inquire whether Bay
ard, or Thurman, or Hendrlcka, or any
other ot the dlattnsuUhed gentlemen whom
associated with the candidacy
of
uamea are
for President of the Democratic party, ean
carry this, or that, or the other State!
Waa ever campaign more skillfully con
than that of '7# ! Waa ever euceess
positively assured! Was ever a party
thoroughly personalised than waa the
Democratic party in that campaign! It
completely Tildenized aa the'French
Government was Nspoleonlaed under the
first Xmperor of thatnams. Did difficulty
present itself, the confidence of his follow
that "Uncle Sammy," as he was famil
iarly called, would, at the right time and in
the right way, brush It aside, was supreme.
And he never disappointed them. To his
administration of the affaire Of the party
was It indebted for success. At .the close
of the exciting contest, on that memorable
day of November, '76, the Democratic
party had a majority of the electors, and a
majority of a quarter of a million of th e
popular voteB—a majority, which, exclu
slve of the recently enfranchised negroes f
reached the Impressive proportion of one
million votes ! Bat what of that! Directly
the bold managers of the Republican party
conceived a scheme, the character of which
was as diaphanous as the best French glass.
Fraud was atamped upon its front In living
letters of light. No matter; It was backed
by a brave purpose. The Republicans did
not Intend that the Government should
bit of It;
more
more
was as
ers
pass from their control—
and they hurled the threat of violence In the
faces of the Democratic party. Its leaders
In Congress "heard and trembledand it
soon became ..apparent that the purpose ol
some was, not to Insist that the majority
of the Inhabitants of the United States
should eDjoy the rights they had won at the
election, bnt to find a reasonable pretext
for "backing down gracefully.
This, Messrs. Con i I"g and Edmunds
famished In the uncoLi,..tution»l Electoral
it
Commission.
The American people admire, almost to
adoration, true courage. It was this element
in Gen. Andrew Jackson's character which
made him their Idol. Men "who know
their rights, and knowing, dare malntal n

the other day that Representative Ellia^
ol Louisiana, said: "If the Republican
party nominate General Grant, the Demo
cratic party must nominate General Han
cock or General McCle'lan,'
purpose of the suggestion is plain; but
what could Generals Hancock and McClel
lan do that Mr. Tiiden left undone ? He
securad the success of the parly. Could
either, or both, do more! Could cither
fight, with a panic-stricken army seeking
opDortunity to surrender! The thing of
first importance for the Democratic party
to do is to reassure the rank and file. Let
them, with the sternest emphaBla, declare
that fraud shall not again be permitted to
triumph over right; that the man who Is
elected President shall take hie seat. The
question, who shall be the candidate! is
secondary, and pales lnto^lnsigntficanee, If

WASHINGTON LETTER.
Special Correspondence ol tbe Herald
Washington, D. C., Dec. 7.
The actual necessary work of Congress is
done by its Committees. Debates, political
»peeches,>nd other causes of delay may be
called the ornamental work ol a 6esslom
aud aloao attract attention from the people
at large. Half the needed work of this
session was done before Congress met on
December 2nd, the House Appropriation
Committee having met and prepared tb e
bills, bo that when the House adjourned
over en Thursday two appropriation bills
had been passed and two more reported,
and all the others are nearly ready. If, af,
ter passing these bills daring the next two
weeks, Congress would adjourn without
day I know of no Government Interest that
would suffer, for their schemes are no!
ready this early to be pushed.
Bnt the consummation so devoutedly to
be wished cannot be expected. Senator
Blaine and others In the two Houses must
discuss the politics of the country. What
good they expect to do, either to the coun
try or themselves, puzzles the understand
lng. In hardly any of the Northern States
has any party a majorl'y of votes, and this
condition of things exists simply because
thousands have already had tio much poli
ties and wish to see the business of the
couutry attended to. Senator Blaine will, if
he gets a chance, speak next Monday on his
political resolution, introduced the first
day of tbe session,
them will b« extended discussion on the
subject.
Senator Edmunds will endeavor on same
day to get up his btll te amend the manner
of counting votes lor the President. It Is
not likely this will be made a party ques
tion. Tbe Senator, for a wonder, seems to
have drawn a bill which has no party In it.
Of Its details I shall speak further, but It
seems, upon a hasty examination, to be
fair and praeticsl.
Secretary Scbnrz and some of the In
dian Agents were yesterday „ before the
I do not believe that
committee on transfer of the Indian Bur
eau. They all oppose the transfer. The
gecrettey "gm hie c»»e away" when he
said he could not efficiently manage the
lureau without more money and more
offl(U]g There la no money to waite and
^ t ^ e p^pie are satisfied of anytnlng It ie
tbftt there la mischief In the multiplication
of officers. . ,,
Senator CenoTta, In asking lor a Com
^ i VM tlgate his alleged connection
w j t j, tbe j ogt or theft of a certain part of
an enrolled bill at the dose of the last ses
sion, did a wise thleg. The charge against
him was made by the secret rervice office
of the Treasury. The Senatorial Commit
tee, alter examlng the evidence on which
the charge was made, found there was
nothing In It, and proposed to drep t be sub
jcot, but Senator Conover asked to
putln evidence. The investigation will
probably result In damage to the nest of
rogues who have so long, under the p~~
tectloe of official position, blackmailed
blackened honest men of all parties. The
Committee now Investigating Conover is
of two Democrats and one Re
ro
or

Washington has, If asy plage In the world
has, a haunted church. As the story gobs,
almost every day but at uncertain times,
there appear* in one of the churches of the
city a venerable lady dressed In black. She
takes a seat, always the same seat, remains
for a few moments, and disappears mysteri
ously. Of course this Is simply a ghost
story but It Is religiously believed by bun
dreds of Imaginative people, many of whom
profess to have seen the "ghost." 8ome
added that a white dove a appears when
ever the old lady does, and disappears at
the same time.
THE PEOPLE'S COLUMN.
Henceforth we will give a column dally
to correspondence upon any proper subject
for discussion. It Is expected that commu
nications will be written on one side only
of the paper, and accompanied with the
name of the writer. The Herald Is not to
be considered as endorsing or being In any
way responsible for the opinion of corres
pondents in this column.
For the Herald.
I am glad to see that yon have drawn
public attention to tbe subject of Public
Health. Do me the favor to look Into the
question of cesspools or wells. There ars
ordinances prescribing tbe depth of these
unavoidable nuisances as well as regulat_
Ing the distance from a division line
at which thev must be sank. So far so
good. But there is no law which will pre
vent a house builder from sinking a well
la contact with the eellar wall of his own
property. There are many wells attached
to houses. I have lived In two houses, In
this city, where the wells were sunk im
mediately In the rear of the kitchen and
against the cellar wall. In both the
rmell was otfeuslve and sickening. In one a
new well Is being sunk to relieve the two
adjoining houses of an Intolerable nuis
ances. No well Bhould be sunk nearer the
wall of a house than six feet and farther
off If possible.

The other day the restless ghost of Ju
lius Caesar strolled into Burlington and
sat down on a fire plug and watched the
little bay mule from West Hill trying his
new hind shoes on the cornice of a two
Btory brick house. The shade of the great
soldier rose to go. "Ah," he sighed, de
jectedly, to a Hawheye reporter, "this
world moves too fast for me. I thought
that rifled artillery was a marvelous im
provement on our old battering rams, and
now tbe Americans have brought out a
new projectile on the old principle that
discounts anything that ever carried pow
der." And he went back to his present
lodgings.
