Th .- Bayard's Peace Speech. Certain journals of influence Lave as sumed that the republication of Mr. Bayard's speech in favor of peace, made te the people of Delaware at the outset or our civil war, necessarily takes him out of the field of presidential candidates ; and this, net because he may be charged with any unfriendliness te the Union or lack of sympathy with -its cause, after the struggle had been fairly entered into, but solely because of his belief that the war should have been avoided. The idea is net that Mr. Bayard's disloyalty un fits him for presidential candidacy, but that he is tabooed, because his judgment was against the inauguration of a war that resulted successfully and in a re stored Union. 2e accusation of disloy alty is made ; it is simply one of false judgment; and a j...

The returns of the last city election will suffice te inform any intelligent and fair-minded person of the inequalities of our existing system of representation for the several wards in common coun ceun cil. The present districting of the city in the first place was a foul gerry mander, made for sinister partisan pur poses; but ether reasons have intervened since then which for general interests make a change no less desirable than equitable. In the first place all the wards are tee large and populous new for single voting districts and should Ixj divided into pre cincts. An average of six hundred votes te each election district is entirely tee high, and every ward could easily suffer division into two and some of them into three districts. With such division there should be an award of the com...
