Our enlargement. and the loss of one business day this week, which was exclusively devoted to the country, not only by ourselves, but also by the men employed in the Printil ;1, Office, will be, we are sure, sufficient e: planation. ----...1111,...- 41111. TnE Reading Times says that no less than five hundred bats. of all descrip tions, were torn to pieces by the jubilant Republicans of that place in front of the League House on Tuesday night. They were so delighted .and overjoyed at the good news that they took this mode of expressing their enthusiasm. The hat trade is no doubt brisk in our sister city just now. In order to enable us to make more perfect arrangements, and to afford our friends and patrons ample time to renew their subscriptions and make up their clubs no paper will be issued next week. All permanent subscriptions will date from November 20th., on which day, and weekly thereafter FATTIER ABRAMM will appear as a permanent in stitution. Hurry up (your !clubs. Lists should be received at this office on or be fore Wednesday, November 18th. On the 4th of March next, if alive, General Ulysses S. Grant and Schuyler Colfax will be inaugurated President and Vice President of the United States— now not only the greatest Republic, but also the mightiest nation on earth—hav ing been chosen by a popular majority of half a million, even in spite of the most infamous outrages and frauds ever perpetrated In this country. This is the glorious and final triumph of Republicanism—of National Unity, Liberty, Equality and Law. It secures to us the blessings of perpetual peace throughout the land. EVERY MAN—the black and the white man alike—will henceforth enjoy the right to live for himself, for his family, and for his coun try. lle may go where he will , from the St. Lawrence to the Gulf; from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Rio Grand to the North Pole, with or with out a carpet-bag, as he may elect. The Stars and Stripes will float in triumph over the whole of this country, and, un der it, all will be protected alike. Trea son will be made odious ; assassins and perjurers and lawless villains will be pun ished. The national credit and the na tional honor has been preserved, and it is safe to say that we are about to enter upon better times than the American people ever enjoyed. WE HAVE PEACE ! One of the most gratifying aspects of our great National triumph is the rebuke thereby administered to the base spirit which, while vaunting itself Conserva tive and opposed to disunion, is forever seeking to foment jealousy and ill-feel ing between the East and the West. Few meaner exhibitions of this spirit have been made than those of Horatio Seymour during his recent stumping tour, wherein he managed to swell the majorities for Grant at every point where he held forth. To excite envy at the \Vest of din ninro sample banking capital of the East (as though borrowers and debtors should be bankers instead of creditors and lenders,) was among his most characteristic displays of the arts of an office-seeking demagogue. The vote of the People gives the proper rebuke to this meanness. magnificent majority of Massachuse is almost matched by that of Illinoi4'; lowa is as hearty for Grant as VermoSt ; Pennsylvania and Indiana pull together as they have almost always done ; and the gain of Connecticut in the East is parallelled by that of California in the West. New England is solid for Grant ; so is the region North-West of the Ohio. Blessings on the East and West, one and inseparable 1 "What God hath joined, together let not man put asunder."— Nita) York Tribune. In this hour of exultation, let us in dulge no revengeful spirit. Even the rebel leaders in the recent bloody out rages in the South will see that their reign of terror is over. Invited to sub mission by the magnitude of General Grant's majority, they can have no fur ther temptation to violence. All their eilbrti have proved in vain, and they must now choose between obedience to law and the inevitable resulting penal ties. After the surrender of Lee, on the 9th of April, 1865, they were ready to yield everything to save their lives. An other battle has been fought and another surrender has been compelled; and now, with the recollection of their former ac quiescence and their subsequent ingrati tude, they may perhaps take some coun sel from prudence, in view of the fact that he who forgave so much three years ago will enter upon the administration of the Government on the 4th of March, ISO, with almost imperial power to make good in every one of its meanings his deliberate declaratitn, "Let us have Peace." Lancaster, Pa Semmes swinging around did not pay any more than Andy's in 1866. So far as the returns of the Presidential election have been received ; in every State, county and town where Seymour spoke there is an increased Republican majority. This is true of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and is especially the case in this State, where he spoke in Pittsburg, Harrisburg, Reading and Philadelphia, in every one of which places there is a decided increase for Grant and falling off from Seymour, co spared with the vote at the State election.
