The Committee of the
American Republican Party of your County"
hive after mature deliberation made out a ticket
which is acknowledged to be composed of some
ofthebest and firmest men of our party. The
committee were selected after the greatest
strvsrstc and eiciteinent that has beenwitnesstd j
for many years—and in the selection of them,
several candidates offered you, foi you: s ippnrt,
had solely in view the interest and welfare of
their party; and the qualification and fitness of
the Candidates for office. Most if not all the
members of the ticket are gentlemen, well
known to most of the voters of this County.
and they have every reason to believe that
they will receive probably the largest vote,
whicli Sussex has ever poled. The coming
election is one of the greatest importance and
calls for active exertions of every true friend
of his party. Your long tried and worthy Re
présentative to Congress JOHN J.MlLLtGAN
ts again nominated, and election of a Senator
to Congress for the term of six years, depends
on the election of your Legislature. Tnese
officers are of the greatest responsibility, and
no state can more boast of her members in Con
gress than Delaware.
The election'of the whole slate, as also your
County ticket is rendered a certainty, provid
ed you will unite and firmly support the prin
ciples of the party, for which we have so long
and successfully contended. But unfortunately
all seems to be lost in the trifling and unconsid
crable part af the ticket, which is filled by the
sheriffs nomination—a number of condidates
were offered for your support and each indus
alriously engaged to get his committee, after
tha farreat poll between them, the committee
have nominated, and now recommend to your
support WILLIAM O. REDDEN, Esq'n.,
gentleman of the first rate qualifications and in
every way fitted for the oflice of Sheriff. He
then being the regular candidate of your party,
and placed upon the ticket, upon the larrest
grounds, has a light to call on you individually
for your support; he lias ever been a true party
man, and unhesitatingly signed the pledge to
the committee, to abide by and support the
nomination. He will probably be opposed by
