Trig election has batched out a fearful
crop of roosters. If there is anything the
country editor especially delights in, it is
to embellish jiis colitmns with roosters, in
defiant attitudes,. and wings in the most
excited condition of rapturous Mid noisy
'exultation. This, year the indulgence in
roosters.fis confined to the Ilepublican pa
pers. And they have used the .occasioe
as if they never expected another oppor
tunity to occur. The display of roosters
has been prodigious, in some casts half a
dozen embellishments on one page of a

hesitates nor temporizes, in the end se
cures the ppblic esteem and is awarded

• Tire Florida and• Louisiana Democrats
have a move for making sure of the
electoral votes of those states, by giving
the appointment of Presidential electors
to the Legislature. It would not be sur
prising if other of the southern states
should adopt this plan, as it would be
much easier to control the, vote of the
state. in this manner, than 'at: the polls. It
would not do to apply the . Yazoo system
when Presidential electors were to be
voted for; but the 3tississippi plan is per
fectly safe and effectual, when members
of the Legislature are to be chosen. The
desperate measures which will be resorted
to to achieve Detnocratie success in 1880,
will demand - the most radical treatment.
- WE are regretfully forced to admit
that we - do not look upon the'result
-in the Empire Staie with unalloyed
'satisfaction. There is -a fly of mod
erate dimensions in our ointment
cup. It is all 'very well to hurrah

a plurality of 30,000, but somehow
arises the unwelcome spectre of a

case for Kelly and' Robinson: Will
it be urged that Republican voters
have cast their suffrages for either ?
If this is admitted, it does not add to
our satisfaction as an explanation,
nor does it demonstrate that our
chances of carrying New York in
180 are thereby increased. To be
sure, it is more than probable that, a
portion, if not all, of the Republiean
State officers on the ticket with COr
nell have been elected, .by -small ma- .
jorities, and thht it is fair`we claim a
Republican triumph. Should it
.prove true that we have succeeded it

of 60,000 in Pennsylvania should
have put the Empire State in the Re
publican column for 1880;-and settled
the Presidential question beyond all
doubt or cavil. The times were .
auspicious; the public sentiment of
the North *as aroused ; the Republi
party wits never so well nnitcd, never
so. determined to save
. the govern
ment from the control. of the con-
federate brigadiersas it was this fall ;
a feeling which, when allowed exPres
s.ion, has been demonstrated in every
-Northern State, There is every
rea-.on to believe that _New York
would have joined in that verdict, and
spoke in thunder tones, but for the
Unwise course pursued in subordina
ting the public good to the gratifiea
tiS,n of personal;feeling, thereby
aliehating the support of many good
men, and checking and chilling the
'growth and demonstration ol' ;that
poicular uprising which everywhere
else• had full opportunity to enlarge
and, have exvression.
It is useless to.deni that the force
and effect of the iraiiEl manifestation
has been materially weake'ned 1)3 1 the
unfortunate state of afrAirs in the
State of New Y qrk, and by the
questionable victory which we. haie
won. It should not have been a
questionable victory, and would not
have been,..had the leaders there been
unselfish, And aimed only at the good
of the party and the country. It
may be, and undoubtedly is, a great
personal triumph for the distin
guished Senator from New 'York,
but it is gained at a fearful,price to
the Republican party of the natio.n.
It has cast a shad6w of doubt upon
the result in 1880—when it should
have dissipated all gloom and
question about the nest Presidency.
It ensures a protracted,' bitter and
doubtful struggle for the electoral
vote of that State in 1880.
Our sympathies of course s were with
CORNELL. He is a worthy and up
right man, and fit to beGovernor of
the great State which has choseivilim .
as its Executive. But his nomination
was inopporttine, in the fact that it
seetned, like a menace to the National
Administration and was particularly
offensive to's class of Retiublicans
who, though they may be' sentimen

and undoubtedlyinceire. A

- The thirty thousand ißepublicaa major
ity in this city would seem extraordinary,
if the State majority was not- so large,
and if other StateS bad not2xhitited sim
ilar astounding results. ItTmust not be.
taken,, for - granted that' the Republican
majority in this city can be maintained at
these large figures, for it was occasioned
now by causes which May not prevail
next year. Firstly, the managers of the
Republican-Tarty wisely yielded to the
popular demand for a tieet composed en
tirely unexceptionable to, any portion of
the voters. TheiDemocracy was rent into
factions—and although both wings of the
party acquiesced in the action of the mass
meeting held in the Academy of Music,
called by such eminently respectable Neu
as Major John 0. James and Henry 1).
Welsh, and adopted and supported its
nominees, yet there was a Kilkenny-cat
feeling prevailing', which prevented cor
dial and systematic effort for its success.
The true inwardness of the Democratic
trouble here is Tildenism. Sam Randall
is the leader of the branch which factors
the sage of Gramercy Park, while Wal
lace and his friends are bitterly opposed
to his pretensions. There are
rate and distinct Democratic organiza
tions in this city, both claiming to be reg-
ular, and though both were ostensibly
and actively supporting the same ticket,
the result shows the value of organization
and cordiality, and also . that a house di
vided a,aiust itself must fall. Those whowho
talk about "machines" and find fault be
'cause there are "leaders" and "work
ers" in a political party, may learn a val
uable lesson from the fearful catastrophe
which has befallen the Dennicratic party
in this city. , That party had nominees of
unexceptionable character—but it had
two beads, and consequently an inert or
paralyzed body. With divided counsels
camez•weakness and almost „annihilation.
The Reiciblicans received 'the news
their great victories Tuesday night with
quiet manifestations of satisfaction. The
crowds about the diftCyent places where
the return were receiveil and announced
were immense, but good natured. tonie
of the more enthusiastic parade,d the'
streets with usual blare of brass- instru
ments and the explosion of pyrotechnics.
It.is a curious custom in Philadelphia, of
tllowing the boys to build bon-fires on

PHILADELPHIA, ov. 6, Iti7G.--To the
Republicans of Pennsylvania i The State
Committee tenders to every RdPublican in
the-State, and to all others who aided in
securing the victory of November -ith,
thanks and congratulations.-' You have
given the greatest
.majority ever cast in
Pennsylvania for a Republican candidate,
savelliat given to General Grant iu 172;
and you have done thisin a campaign the
seeming apathy of which at first alarmed
the timid and the donbtful. You have
.given Pennsylvania a proud place in the
phalanx, of Stateti, remanding that our
revival prosperity shall not be destroyed ;
that our currency shall not be debased ;
that the public credit shall not be tarnish
ed, and that the rights and privileges of
the citizens'shall not be crushed out. All
this you have done by your stern protest
against continuing in power the Demo
cratic party, which assails prosperity by
collusion with foreign capital to break
down American labor and home indus
tries; that seek to destroy a sound finan
cial policy, and substitute a crazy theory
Of paper currency ; that prostrates public
credit through State, corporate and muni
cipal. repudiation, thereby leading cer
tainly to the repudiation of our:national
debt, and that suppresses by violence in
the southern ~titges those rights of life,
liberty and the pursuit of happines,with
out security for which govt nments are
contemptible and existence is a curse:
By your voice these wrongs and dangers
to the nation have been averted, and the
rights-of our citizens shall be redeemed:
