Travelling Agent. —William M. Johnson, of Appoquinimink Hundred,is our travellingRgcnt to solicit subscriptions and business for the Inquirer. Any contracts made by bint will be valid. Tue Inquirer. —To-day we print the fifty second number of the Inquirer, which consti tutes the first year. Those who predicted and wished downfall have, nnd will be most gloriously mistaken. We have succeeded be yond our most sanguine wish. From the day wo started to the present time, we have pushed our subscription list steadily but surely—in creasing every week nnd making friends ivkcre re went. In the early part of our career we met with strong opposition from the office holders and their tools; it injured us a little at the time. But the truth went abroad and pre months from conquered ; i vailed ; our commencement, the Inquirer stood alone. It had no public patronage, which is generally given to newspapers, to assist it ; it stood alone rits. It was the organ of set of men ; consequently it had no patron to push it ahead, lit the place of depending upon others to establish our enterprise, we used individual exertion, and we hnd vanity' enough to believe that we would be successful, and we deserve to succeed, for wc have worked day nnd night to make the Inquirer a success. Having accomplished our object, the Inquirer will be increased in s' the stock of paper we have determined that it shall he • up We hnml. ; paper ot Deln Having put it through the year, if we would like to s office this evening, to feel friends nnd foes—nt take n nip over the event. Wc want to hurry animosity, forget past in with the Democratic thunder ringing in our ears. Don't bo afraid to is not a one horse team ; juries, and commence the up to the rack; the Inquirer nnd nil— iy; the string let no party or crcod keep yon of our door will he out. "UNITY, EQUALITY, FRATERNITY," Is our motto; the watchword of Democracy; the cry that will soon be heard tain9 and in the valleys, throughout the length and breadth of the land, nnd which will never the moun be hushed until the standard bearer of party is firmly established in the White House nt Washington. A Very Little Animal.— When the mngnnni City Council refused to permit us to put up a sign ncross the'pavement in front of our office^ pnt our wits to work nnd got up a c anvass sign and spread it forth to the breeze. It happen ed that the thing was a hit, and a great many 1 people remarked that thing, and it attracted considerable attention. Caleb, of the Gazette , like a good Christian, vied his neighbor the device, and i long before a pole sancUttr.

A slim, gangling looking contraption—the very simile of its projector— and in a few moments longer the bunting and run to the end of the pole. The immortal words painted across the end of the stripes "Delaware Gazette." good sign was it would be , i .i *- 1 te mouse going into his •n issuing from the window? told the *ud tale.

Nothing but a drowning r could be the bing at a ; beauty of the thing was, the wind was blowing a smart breeze, just about enough to he Demo cratic, when the immortal conception of Caleb found too weak to battle with the elements, Caleb's flag, and he had to take her in again, like his principles, could not stand the storm ; but s, four times as large, floated gracefully and danced upon the winds like a thing of life. Now. what is all this about! Our office is located on the same square with Caleb's, hut a little lower down towards Fourth street. On the upper side of him is the Delaware Journal, with its capacious bourd sign across the pave ment which effectually i off iili the the up ,'aleb is thus completely funded by HuhIbcs- arrangements. He is about e fabled scorpion, when he hiruscG aim .-.tnded hy fire : he is about fou «tinging Uimseffto death. Poor fellow, wo pity him, and if it were not that the public would consure us we would haul i him a chance for his life. Caleb's brain cannot be fathomed ; it con ceives great things, and he doubtless thought when he followed i a trump ; but we arc of the opinion that his aping us will not amount to much. If he fol lows in our footsteps he will and we intend that he shall best. footsteps he would he a good race, in second We would call the attention of the public to Caleb's sign, for fear they should not see it. It is composed of 15 cent bunting, with n strip of Mr. Watson's 10 cent muslin across the top, with the magic words *• Delaware Gazette" painted upon it. Wc have no doubt that Caleb thinks he lias hit the right nail upon the head. We think that he is only growing desperate. e Convention. —F.x-Gov e of the Vice Presidents ; James of the Committee Delawauianh 1! ernor Ross is A. Bayard is tions ; John B.

Charleston, April 26.—A great sectional citemcnt prevails to-night among the politi cians gathered here. The delay in the report of the Platform Committee, and their inability to agree, seems to have hastened the crisis. The Southern cotton States lire rampant; they threaten positively to leave the Conven tion and nominate Jeff. Davis, of Mississippi, for President, and Fernando Wood, of New York, for Vice President, unless the Platform repudiates the doctrine of "Squatter Sovereign ty."

Careful additions nnd revisions have been made, and many of the most valuable journals nnd nmga scmi-nnnunllv bound. During the past winter there have been 7 Literary and 6 Scientific Lectures delivered, which have been unusually well attended by members, as well as our citizens nt large ; these lectures with but few exceptions have been a decided success, particularly the scien tific course. These lectures have added considerably to the number of our members, nnd it is a grati fying fact that many of our country iriends have joined during the lecture season, not only those residing in adjoining county of Chester, The Debating Society, which is a branch of the Institute, has been kept up with much spirit during the winter—twenty-five of our members having joined by signing the roll, Its meetings are, however, free to oil our bers, nnd have been well attended by them, The Treasury is in a healthy condition, all the demands on it through the year having been promptly met. And although your C mittee lias been obliged to anticipate the July payments, by the negotiations of a temporary loan, we fairly claim to he out of dell , us the Newspapers and Periodicals are paid for in ad vnnec, nnd the hook bills paid mouthly. The Institute has been the recipient during the past year of many valuablo hooks from members of Congress, from the Departments at Washington, ami from our friends both at home and abroad, all of which have been suitably acknowledged by your Executive Committee. But as the Institute i basis, which must certainly warrant the confi dence of the community, 1 hope it will not be long before we shall receive material aid in the way of liberal bequests. In many parts of country, particularly in New England, similar institutions to our own, have in this way, been made instrumental in disseminating a vast amount of useful knowledge. In the month of September there position s Academy of Natural Sciences with the Wil mington* Institute, whereby the Institute to receive $500 in money, provided, they could sufficient sum, added to this, to extend the present building to Shipley street, in order for scientific lectures. About the same time the Delaware Horticul tural Society, and the Botanical Society of Wilmington, transferred all their money and effects to the Institute for certain equivalents to he received by the two societies. On the 21st of September, a special commit tee was appointed to take entire charge of the proposed improvements ; which resulted in their recommending to the Executive Commit the 25th of October, the purchase of the lot at the N. W. corner of Market and Eighth streets, for the sum of $13,000, provided $5000 could be obtained from the citizenB by sub scription, $3000 of it to be paid as purchase money, leaving a mortgage on the property of $10,000, the balance of $2000, in connection with the monies received from the Academy of Natural Sciences nnd the Botanical Society, to build three stores on Market street, and n lec Shipley street. The recommendation of the special commit tee was unanimously adopted, und the Presi dent directed to issue to the members of the Institute a circular, stating the fact9, and de tailing the views of your Executive Committee in regard to the proposed building ; and re questing energetic co-operation in carrying the same into effect. 3872; 1854, county, but in the standing a pro unitc the Delaware ft ■ have Early in Novetnbor, a copy of this circular , ns sent to every member of the Institute, and happy to say w weighty responses indicated as required tor tne purpose. Un the nth of December the President authorized to purchase the property of Capt. J. P. G il lis liver the same to the Institute of March, I860. And as it was the almost unanimous senti ment of the members of the Institute, aud of interested citizens, t hat the improvement should he ot a permanent character, the committee having tin* same in charge, were requested to make an earnest aud combined effort to increase the donations to an amount, which would ren der it safe and expedient, to proceed with the erection of a permanent stiueture. Un the 17th of January they reported they had given dilligcnt attention to the duties of their appointment, and with the assistance of of their colleagues of the Executive Com mittee, and n number of other gentlemen (members of the Institute.) had waited nearly, if not quite all the members, and many other citizens and friends of the Institute, and lmd succeeded in collecting up to this time $12,783, which, added to the amount received from the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Bo icnl Society, and the proceeds of Dr. Bovn 's lectures, making n total of means availa ble for the erection of the proposed permanent building, of $13,409.17. This sum added to the supposed worth of materials in the old build ing, warranted your Executive Committee in the appointment of a buildiny committee, to consist of six members, to whom was referred the entire management und control of the pro posed new hall and improvements, including financial arrangements connected therewith— subject to the advice and approval of the E cutive Committee.
