A SPECIAL dispatch from WyOming
Territory, probably forwarded by some
ardent woman's righter, says the late elec
tion passed off very quietly ; that there
was no sneering, no profanity, no fighting;
that the women went to the polls as
quietly as if they were going to church,
and that they seemed to be conscientious
as to what candidates were worthy of their
suffrage, many refusing to vote for men
on account of intemperance. This is an
auspicious beginning, and certainly can
not be construed into an argument against
female suffrage. As a proof that the wo
men of Wyoming exercised their right of
suffrage intelligently and conscientiously,
it may be stated that the great majority of
them voted the Republican ticket.

"From the Sublime,. icc."
„,After glancing hastily over the columns
of the Herald this week, - we were- struck
with the truth of the old saying abo . ur
there being but one step from the sublime
to ,the rediculous, and how easily
made, too.- A story of old Judge Bar.

this time to illustiate our point. The

and retiring to private life was prevailed
upon to be a candidate Cot' a lbcal office.

rough-and-tumble politicial adventurer,
named Bill Maples against the old man.
In accordance with the strict rules of con

The Ohio Republican Platform.
That to the party wise and true,
Which bore the flag of Union through
Long years of blood unfurled to v few ;
Which dared oppression to withstand,
And flung broadcast, with whole right hand,
Freedom to all in freedom's land,
We cling with confidence and pride,
And trust the hand of such a guide;
And we believe that, as we see
This party's true ascendency-,
Our Government's success will be.
The Constitution is care;
'Tis the promoter, everywhere,
Of all that makes freedom fair ;
That makes a people great and good,
In equal rights and brotherhood.
To the country we offer our congratulations,
That in the success of the administration,
Decreasing our debt without greater taxation,
By so many millions, a grand illustration
That honest hands deal out the funds of the
Relieving of financial burdens tremendous,
Leaving national honor and faith to commend
That our laws should be changed as regards nav-
Permitting to vessels a lair registration
When purchased abroad—as needs of the na
Plundered commerce would bail the Improved
That we condemn the policy
Of granting to Monopoly,
Or corporations—if you please—
Our public lands as subsidies.
That drolly fixed on neutral ground,
We, with indifference profound,
Regard the European strife,
Though France or Germany yield his life,
Merely for dynasties and kings—
For thrones are weak and crowns are things,
However turns the scale of war
It matters not—only so far
As it involves across the sea
The principles of liberty.
We call to mind the failure great
Of eighteen hundred and forty-eight,
When proud successes had been won
Had German hearts but beat as one;
That when our nation's trial came,
Their love of freedom was the same;
They with warm simpathy and aid
Flocked to her standard undismayed :
But Frenchmen labored for our hurt—
This free Republic to subvert,
And on the soil of freedom's own
Establish an Imperial throne.
Hence we our sympathies declare
With Germany's brave sons, who dare
Strike with heroic, patriot hand,
For liberty and "Fatherland." -
The Great Fire in Chicago
We referred last week to the great con
flagration in Chicago, by which the finest
business structures in that city were total
fly destroyed by fire, and where young
Ferguson lost his life. From ten to
twenty persons perished in the flames
while endeavoring to save: property, and
the entire loss is estimated at about 03,-
000,000, and the total insurance $1,554,-
500. The Chicago Tr /tune, after giving
a very graphic and thrilling account of the
fire, the progress of the flames and the
awful spectacle presented in their des
tructive career, closes with the following
particulars of the terrible catastrophe by
which so many human beings were lost :
"What will render this fire more memor
able than all others in the annals of Chi
cago, is the terrible loss of life which it
has caused. The destruction of a noble
edifice, and the loss of millions of dollars,
are misfortunes which may soon be re
trieved. But the immolation of many hu
man beings, their consignment to a doom
the most awful, perhaps, that the imagi
nation can conceive, is a calamity which
must be followed by mournful remembran
ces in all hearts, for many years to come.
The scene which was witnessed at the
moment when the walls fell, as before
mentioned, was one which will leave an
ineffaceable impression in the memory of
all who were spectators of the awful sight.
It was about a quarter to 6 o'clock - . The
fire was at its- height. Vast billows of
flame were surging through portions of
the building, sweeping everything rapidly
into a mass of red ruin. It was evident
to ' all that the walls could no longer re
sist the force of the fiery hurricane, and
that a grand crash was at hand. Still the
men were seen, through the red litten
windows, working bravely in the effort to
save property. Orders had been given
Sometime before to the people to rush in
and carry off goods, and the, orders had
been obeyed; But .now it was seen that
danger was too near, and that in a few
minutes the lives of all who had gone
within the building had been sacrificed.
The spectators became wild with terror
and excitement. 'One Assistant Engi
neer, seeing that 'the heat was intense,
called frantically tcithe men to come out.
Policeman Brown, ru,hed into ,the build
ing, at the risk of his-own life, and loud
ly calledto them to make their aWri 'escape.
He returned,' and barely got from' the
door to the street, when the crash came.
Ic was the side wall between Thatcher's
and Farewell's building-125 feet between
the two stores: It fell with one prolong
ed and deafening crash, and the men went
down 'with it to their fiery graves. A
wail went up' from :tie eroWd, a strange,
indeseribabie cry of sob,.that spoke Of hor

they had disappeared, crushed beneath
the ponderous walls, and suffocated in the

THE CAMPAIGN OT 1970.
REPUBLICAN VICTORIES !
The political campaign of 1810 opens
brilliantly for the Republicans. We
point with pride to the following magnifi
cent results :
VERMONT STEADY AND TRUE
The State of Vermont voted on the
first Tuesday of September, for Governor,
member of Congress, and Legislature.
The Republicans elected the Governor by
22,000 majority, carried all the members
of Congress, and both Houses of the Leg
islature by overwhelming majorities.
Vermont is all right.
REPUBLICAN VICTORY IN MAINE
The State of Maine elected a Gover
nor, Legislature, and five Members of
Congress, on Monday last. Maine is one
of the doubtful states, and it has become a
saying" as goes Maine so goes the Union."
Sidney Perham, the Republican candi=
date for Governor has a majority of 5,000
against 4,942 in the same towns for the
Republican candidate last year. This
shows an increase so that in the whole
state, Perham will have a larger majority
than Chamberlain had last year.
The Republicans elected the whole five
Congressmen by handsome majorities,
though a bitter opposition was presented
in several of the districts. The Legisla
ture is largely Republican in both
branches. The contest was mainly for
U. S. Senator—between Gov. Chamber
lain and the Hon. Lot M. Morrill, both
-Republicans. How the choice is decided
cannot yet be told, though it is said that
Morrill has the State Senate in his favor.
TEL WYOMING VICTORY
The Republicans of the territory of
Wyoming have achieved a splendid victo
ry in the election of William T. Jones as
Delegate to Congress by about 200 major
ity over Wankss, Democrat.
The election returns received indicate
the election of Chaffee (Republican), over
Miller (Democrat), as delegate to Con
gress, by an overwhelming majority
The vote has largely increased every
where throughout the territory.
DIE Democrats of Lancaster county
have appointed a committee of their own
ilk to confer with Republican sore heads,
for the purpose of negotiating " terms"
and " fixing up" a slate for the ensuing
County election. In other words, they do
not intend to nominate a straight-outpemo
erotic ticket, but arrange and give their
support to a mongrel' ticket, made upof
sore bead Republicans and copperheads.
Hon. Isaac E. Hiester is named as the
candidate for Congress. On the Legisla
tive ticket, the Democrats are to have one
Representative,—Hugh M. North of Co
lumbia,—and the sore beads three. This
is the plan as at present developed in that
quarter. Of course, such a ticket cannot
be elected in the " Old G-uard."--Reading

No Ph'lr NAMES ix Settoot.—Of late
years in some of our public schools the silly
affectation has prevailed of designating the
pupils by " pet names," especially in the
female schools, usually by the addition o
" ie" to the proper Christian name. Thus
we find on the school rolls nothing but An
nie. Bettie, Carrie, Dellie, El lie, Fannie,
Georgie, nettle, Late, Jennie, Katie. Lottie,
Mollie, Nettie, etc., Tor the girls, and John
nie, Davie, Charlie, Harrie, Sammie, Ben
nie, etc., for boys.
This custom prevailed last year to such
an extent that it was really nauseating, and
it was noticed in some schools that not a
single pupil was called by the proper name
or had it recorded correctly. It is satisfac
tory to learn, therefore, that Superinten
dent 'Wilson has, on the opening of schools,
requested the teachers to write and spell
the names of their pupils correctly and to
discountenance the use of the pet or nick
names in the school room. It is to be hoped
that a reform is to be affected, and before
the close of this school year the pupils may
know their proper names and bow to spell

WHA DOES REASON SAY?
Tits little mongoose when bitten by a deadly
serpent resorts to a certain plant, eats of it,and
escapes the effect of the poison. That is instinct .
Human beings on the other hand, must depend
on reason and experience in selecting the means
of protecting health and life against unwhole
some influences. Now, wtpit noes reason say
on this vital subject? Does it not tell us that to
invigorate and purify the system is the best
way to protect it against the invisible poison
which generates disease? Surely it does. The
next question is, what guide shall we hollow in
choosing a medicinal safeguard? Reason replies
let your monitor be experience. Well, the ex
perience or eJgh teen years comprised in one un
broken series of satisfacto.'y testimonials as
sures us that Hostett_er's Stomach Bitters possess
strengthening, regulating and antiseptic prop
el ties which are not combined in the same
happy proportions in any other preparation
extant. This therefore is tile antidote to which
reason bids us resort when our health is im
perilled either by the malaria which produces
epid•anic disorders, or by any other cause,
whether inherent and constitutional, or con
nected with our habits, occupations and pur
The venom of a noxious reptile is scarcely
more subtle and dangerous than that which
lurks in mat air and im pure water. To escape
the levers, bilious disorders, disturbances of the
bowels, and other serious maladies produced by
these insalubrious elements, it is absolutely
necessary that the stomach and all the secretive
organs should be, so to speak, in a robust condi
tion. Upon the amount of resistance which the
vital system can oppose to the deleterious influ
ences that assail it, the safety of the health de
pends, and it is because the GREAT VEGETABLE
INVIGORAI%7T imparts energy and re‘mlarity to
the most important functions of the body, that
it can be recommended and guaranteed as an in
valuable preventive medicine.
