In this morning's PnEss we give the otil
returns of the State election received
pto the hour of going to press. In twon-
iv_Aight COUlttle3, including Philadelphia,
there is a Union gain of over seventeen
:1101Thand, only one county showing a gain
the Democratic party, and that of less
than half a hundred votes. In the Adams
and Franklin district, Mr. MCCONAtielillY,
the Union candidate for Senator, is
eaten by thirty-four votes, but it is be
lt,ved the soldiers' vote will more than
snake up that deficiency. In Luzerne
~ainty the Democratic candidate for Sena
:or, STAN - LEY WooDwAno, is beaten by 235
votes. In the Franklin and Ferry Wpm
t..ittative district the Union party gain one
taemberin, Adams one, and ono in Aral
As the other returns come in, the more
g;orious will appear the victory' of Tuesday,
and none will exult more in the success
than the gallant standard bearers who,
after whipping the foes of their country
Ipon the field of battle, have compelled
he sympathizers with their old enemy to
-urrender at the ballot-box.

eilrel.WNITI, °Ct. 13.—The Gazette publightla a
speech made by Secretary IdeCulloeh, at Port
Wayne, Indiana, on Wednesday night, in
which he gives his views on the national
finances. He said he wag not one of those who
seem to repudiate coin as a measure of value,
mid to make a sound nailer ourrenoy the
standard ; on the contrary, he belonged to that
class of persons who, regarding an exclusive
metallic currency as an impracticable thing
among enterprising and commercial people,
nevertheless look upon an irredeemable cur
rency as an evil which circumstances may for
a time render necessary, but which is never to
be sustained as a policy. 1.5 y the common. con
sent of nations gold and silver are thebnly
two measures of value ; they are the necessary
regulators of trade.
He favored a well-secured convertible paper
currency. No other can to any extent be a
Proper substitute for coin. It is not expeeted
that there shall be a dollar iu ep4n . in reserve
for every dollar of paper in ei&ulation; this
not necessary. For all ordinary hOille trans
actions paper currency is sufficient; but there
are constantly occurring periods when the
balances between countries, and in the United
States between the different sections, must be
settled in coin. These balances are insignitl-
Cant, and, in comparison with the trans.
actions out or which they arise, and when a
vicious system of credit does not too long
postpone settlements, they are arranged with
nut disturbing the movements of coin. When.
ever specie is needed for this purpose, Or fOr
any other purpose, the paper currency of the
country should be convertible Into it ) and a
circulation not so convertible will not be, and
ought not to be, tolerated by the people.
The present unconvertible currency of the
- United States 1 , 013.8 a neeessity of war; but now
that the war has closed, and the Government
ought not to be a borrower, the currency
should be brought up to a specie standard;
and he saw no way of doing it but by with
drawing a portion of it from circulation. He
had no faith in a prosperity which was the
effect of a depreciated currency ; not could he
see any safe path to tread but that which leads
iv specie piviiients. The extreme high prices
now prevailing indicate that the business. Of
the edentry is in an unhealthy condition. We
are measuring * allies by a false standard. We
have a circulating mediate altogether largar
than is needed for legitimate business, and the
exceB6 if) used in speculations.

[Special Despatches to The Prom]
WASHINGTON, Oet. 12, 1865
Official Reports of the Cholera.
The Department of State has just received
advices from Constantinople, Port Mahon,
Florence, and Genoa, in reference to ravages
Of Cholera in those places. The cholera has
almost entirely disappeared from Constanti•
nople and vicinity. The United States Consul
at Port Mahon represents that the usual popu
lation of Paleno ' one of the provinces, is esti
mated at about fifty thousand souls. On the
17th of September the population did not ex.
eeed fifteen thousand, thirty-five thousand
having either ilea the city or perished from
this terrible scourge. On that day onehundred
and. thirty-seven deaths occurred from it ;
since then the deaths are - reported at from
one hundred and fifty to one hundred and
sixty per day. The infection appears in a very
aggravated form, and seems to baffle human
skill. Reports reached Port. Mahon that the
disease is spreading into the interior bf Spain.
In closing the despatch, the consul says:
Should this disease cross the Atlantic and.
visit our shores, much may be done to miti
gate its . rtwagee, if the people will prepare
themselves to meet it u-a.'th their allures on. The
United States consul general in Italy, under
date of Sept. Si, says The history of the pro
grasis of this terrible disease during the pre
sent season proves beyond question that it is,
according to the usual acceptation of the term,
_contagious, and need not become an epi
demic where quarantine measures, combined
with judicious sanitary regulations, are
strictly enforced. Statistics upon this subject
from this kingdom so strongly support this
theory that it is ardently to be hoped that the
experience of Italy will serve as a guide to
othtr nations as yet exempt from its visita
tion, although the French sanitary au
thorities seem somewhat disposed to ignore
the efficacy Of strict isolation waliquarantine.
The etates consul at Gen oa,reforring tO
the cholera, says teat. e as soon as the cholera
up-poured. Ancona a sanitary committee
Was appointed by the t overnment in Ghent,
as indeed in all the cities o 5 tim Kingdont.
This committee labored incessantly to eleane."
the city, to remove the poorest people from
crowded and unhealthy tenements' and to
induce the population to avoid such food and
excitement us are believed to prepare the way
for disease. At this moment Genoa is one of
the cleanest cities in Europe, and we owe it
to the faithful labors of the sanitary Commis
sion, Certain religiOnS festivals which have
usually been devoted to over-eating and
drinking, haVe been suspended for tails year,
and some articles Of foOd—as for -exaMple,
mushrooms—have been excluded from the
city. The wenther,which in August was Singu
larly cool, has been very hot during the last
two weeks, and it is, therefore, perhaps too
soon to say we have escaped the cholera for
the present year, but should the disease visit
us, I think there will be few victims."

Memorials from South Caroline in Be•
half of Jeff Davis.
Judge WKRDLAW, AL - exceo nitaltP., and COl,
DAWKINS, of South Carolina, this afternooti,
had an interview, by appointment, with Pre
sident Jouwsoi, They were accompanied by
W. IL TKEECOTT, ESCi., who is here On business
as executive agent of that State. The Presi
dent, after the customary preliminaries of the
- reception, invited them to be seated, when at
once the conversation commenced by Judge
WARDLAW informing him that they were a
delegation from the State Convention of Smith
Carolina sent hither to present certain Me
morials of that body. These memorials had
been very carefully cOnsidered in the con
vention, and he believed that they told exactly
the truth. The President inquired the object
of the memorials,
Judge Wardlaw informed him that one of
them was in behalf of Jetferson Davis, A.
btepliens, George A. Trenholm and Governor
NeGratb. lL said they had untlerstood that,
by the kind interference of the President,
fiiessrs. Stephens and Trenholm had already
keen released from confinement, and per
mitted to faun to their homes. Ito would
ask let Governor AlcCiratli either a pardon, Or
that he might be released on 'parole. They
could assure the President that no harm
worth' arise from each all act Of clemency.
The President replied that all crime not be
pardoned at once. The business would be
proceeded with gradually, and an effort would
he Made to execute the law; a discrimination
was necessary, as we g 0 along,. /t was a too
common expression, by way or argument for
clemency, that,snoh a one had been pardoned,
mid that he way just as bad as another who had
riot. .lodge Wardlaw replied that the dele
gation present tal no such argument as that.
The President said sometimes the peculiar

teeny other things in num..nifaira, eau•
not have a nxed rule. Much depends on dIS•
eretton and Circumstances. If we know our
selves, we Milt to do What IS best and just,
and to show a proper degree of humanity on
the part orthe Government.
Judge Wardlaw remarked that they had not
to express their own hopes and
desires, but as delegates from the South. Crake
ling Convention to present the memorials of
that body in a general manner.
The rreffhlellt, We will extend, gentlemen,
all the facilities and civilitiesk.Viiielt the Will .
tions require. We would prefer to pardon
twenty men than refuse one.
eJltdgo Wardlaw replied that they did not de
sign to say anything with reference to Gover
nor McGrath further than that they behoved
much good would result by the exercise of the
Executive Clemency toward him.
Colonel Dawkins said if we can get Governor
McGrath paroled it would be a great relief to
him at the present time.
Judge Wardlaw thanked the President for
baying released Messrs. Stephens and Trim
The President. We have that far anticipated
your memorial.

The President replied, he understood that
was so, adding that if treason has been com
mitted, there ought to be somo test to deter
mine the power of the Government to riunish
the crime. lie was free to say that it was not
a mere contest betweenpolitical parties,
or a question as to de facto govern
ments. Looking at the Government as WO
do, the laws violated and an attempt
made at the life of a nation, there should
be a vindication of the Government and the
Constitution, even if the pardoning power
were exorcised thereafter. If treason has been
committed, it ought to be determined by the
highest tribunal, and the fact doclarod,oven
if clemency should come afterward. There
Was no malice or prejudice in wishing to carry
out that duty.
Judge warmly remarked that they were
well aware of that,
The PreSideut, resuming, said there may be
SOll/0 unkind feelings on this subject, but it
did not Mast to any great extent.
mige. Ward iaw said, although not instruct
ed by the convention, he wag induced to ask
whether Mrs. Jefferson Davis, who was now
eonEned in Georgia, could noteross into South
Carolina to see her friends
_ . .
The president replied that he had received
letters from Mrs. Davis, but they were not
very commendable. • The tone of one of them,
however, - was considerably improved, but the
others were not of the character becoming one
asking leniency.
Judge Wardlaw interposed by saying she
cras a woman of strong feeling,
The president replied; Yes, / SUppose sha id
a woman of strong feeling and temper, but
there is no intention to persecute her. There
is as much magnanimity, and independence,
and nobleness Of Spirit ih submitting, as in
trying to put the Government at defiance.
True magnanimity takes things as they are,
and when taken in the proper way disconnect
them from humiliation. Manifestations of
temper and defiance do no good.
Der. linger remarked that they had a deep
eollBClOilfiriebS of the truth of all the President
The President, resuming, Observed that the.
character of tin individual may Characterize
a nation, which is nothing but an aggregate
of individuals. and when a proper ,spirit is
manifested all can act harmoniously. The
man who secs to the stake is almost dignified
by llis bearing. It lifts him above humiliation.
In these cases, gentlemen, we will do the best
we can. While there was sympathy, there was
a public judgment, which must be met. But
I assure you, gentlemen, no disposition exists
for perScentlilri or a thirst for Med,
Judge Wardlaw re - Marked that the tone Of

constitution of South Carolina. Of course, he
said, we accept emancipation. Ile felt perfect
ly satisfied that the person and property of
the negro will he protected, and spoke of the
great difficuities of regulating labor and Of
restraining vagrancy, etc.
The President thought many of the difficul
ties would disappear if they inaugurated the
right system. Pass laws protecting'the colored
man, his person and property, and he can col
lect his debts. He knew now it was in the
South. The (location, when first presented, of
putting a altered Ulan on the witness stand,
made them shrug their shoulders- hat the
colored man's testimony was to be taken
for what it was worth by those who ex
amine him and the jury who hear it. After
all, there was not so inuCh danger as was sup•
posed. Those coming out of slavery cannot
do without work. They cannot lie down• in

Huger all expressed to the President their eon
victiOn that the State had accepted in good
faith the result of the issue which had been
made ; that the people felt that the President
had steed between them and a harsh use of the
power of the Government; that they felt en
tire•conlicienee in his purposes and action, and
hoped, in return, to entitle themselves/t0 his
COMldenee as to their feeling and action.
The President replied that he was glad to

existed there would, he thought , be au -open

prosperous condition, and if he knew IlialSelf d
and he thought he did, he would recommend
nothing hut what would advance their in

to future elevation, he must be believed when
he said he had no eye single to such prefer
merit. "If, " he continued' I could be Instru
mental in restoring the Government io its
former relations, and see the people once
more united and happy, I should feel that I
haditnore than filled the measure of my ambi
tion. If I would feel that I hadvontributed to
this in any degree, my heart would be more
than gratified and royamhition full."
Judge Wardlaw. Every man in South Caro
lina would respond to that.
Mr. Huger. I am sure there is on their part
no rum. faith. They deserve your conildeneof
and I am sure they will earn it,
The President expressed himself gratified
with what had been said by these gentlemen.
Mr. Dawkins remarked that all South Caro
lina reposed confidence in the President, and
that the memorials presented by the chairman
of the delegation represented the true senti
ments of the people of that State, both in re
gard to those whom they Wish pardoned, and
pie feeling and position of South Carolina.

occupied a prominent social position, and was
well-known in religious circles.
