Let us have ratification meetings at

No pun is intended.
The Republican crop failed to get a
good stand this year. It has been struck
with a Democratic frost.
We think it would have been better

The nomination of Cleveland and
Hendricks is taking the country by
storm and will sweep it like a hurri
cane next November, until there will
not be a Republican tree left standing.
The press of the country, which is
the roost potent political power in the
land, are coming out in full columns
for the Democratic nominees. Demo
cratic, Independent, neutral, and even
Republican journals have arrayed them
selves alike for Cleveland and reform.

To those who believe in signs and

J singular, coincidence that both
Cleveland and Blaine were nominated
on Friday, which is held by the super

There was a large party went down
the river yesterday on the Passport,
but we learn from sprue of those who
returned last night that the weather
was so hot that there was no enjoyment
in the trip, but actual and serious dis
comfort. Old Probi" predicted a "stationary
temperature" for to-day , and he hit
the nail square on the head. The
thermometer in our office caught on
to 90 degrees early in the day. and it
clung there with a tenacity more earn
est than desirable.
The birthday party tendered to Mr. D.
H.ScoTille, at the Seaside Park Hotel on
Mondav nizht was quite a nice affair.
There was an elegant assemblage' of
ladies and gentlemen, an enjoyable
germau and a fine supper, and every
thing passed oflmostdelightfully.
Appro pos of what we said in yester
day's issue of the cool atmosphere of
Wilmington as compared with other
cities in this section, we find in the
Charlotte Observer that on Monday,
the Uth inst., the thermometer indica
ted 03 degrees, while here it barely
reached 90 degrees. -

raded yesterday, preceded by a band of

would like to hear them again. -
The crop3 are growing with aston

Guy Wright's clar'nett, accompanied
by a big and little drum, marched
through the streets in the Eastern
section of the city last night, making
the air resound with their strains. They
did not begin to toot, however, until
after 9 o'clock, but kept it up for more
than an hour.
We doubt if so much street sprinkling
during these intensely hot days is at all
beneficial to the health of the city. On
the contrary, we believe it is decidedly
detrimental, and let any one cross a
street in the hot sun just after it has
been completely saturated with water,
and inhale the hot noisome odor that
arises and he will be ot our opinion. .
Harmony Lodge I. O. of Good Tem
plars will make an excursion down the
river on the Passport to-morrow, and
will visit the Rocks, Smithville and the
Forts during the day. They will have
music for dancing at Fort Caswell, re
freshments at city prices, and will do
all in their power to make the day
pleasant and the excursion agreeable.
A Battalion Drill.
The Wilmington Light Infantry con
templates making a trip to Smithville
on the Passport next Friday, and there
is a strong probability that, they will
go, although the matter is not yet settled
positively. The idea is to go down
there and in connection with , the
Smithville Guards and the Sumter. (S.
C.) Guards, to have' a battalion drill
under the senior officer in command.
The Political Pot.
The different political factions in the
county are mustering their forces for
the campaign. The war is between
the Manning and Hewlett factions, and
it promises to be waged with bitternes3
and zeal. Lorenzo Kennedy, of the
latter faction, wants to be Register of
Deeds, in opposition to Sampson, the
present incumbent, who is the nominee
of the Manning wing of the party.
The Wilmington District Conference
of the M. E. Church, South, will con

made with the different railroads to
convey delegates and others who may
desire to attend at three cents per mile
each way. Those going from this city
should leave here on the W. & W. R.

securing tickets for Faison, where con

State making observations which he
embodies in the shape of correspondence
for the Raleigh Chronicle. He is ex
pected to return from Wrightsville to
day, and will then go down the river,
visiting the Rocks, Smithville and the
government works for the improve
ment of our river and harbor, upon
which he will undoubtedly make an
interesting and valuable report. .
