Just as we go to press, tbe terrible
news reaches us of the destruction
of a large portion of Boston. The fire
first broke out in the re end of a
large five rtory grauite building, on
Summer street, and aided by a pow
erful gale, spread over the finest por
tion of the city. Thousands of the
eostilest buildings of the country have
l)een destroyed. Seventy acres of
residences and warehouses burned,
while thousands of families are left
houseless and homeless. The loss is
estimated at over One Hundred Mil
lions. We will furnish full particulars
We have to day the supreme grati
fication of announcing the crowning
victory of the Republican part. For
years it has been habituated to suc
cess in every contest with its ancient
foe, but in this glorious triumph it has
utterly overwhelmed an infamous co
alition led by renegades from its own
ranks, and composed of every con
gregated clement of hostility to its
principles. The. victory is thorough,
complete, and crushing, and will stand
out in all future time a monument
of glory to the Republicans who so
gallantly won it, a warning and a les
son to corrupt professional politicians
who seek power and office by defa
mation, deception and lies.
The voice of the people cannot be
misunderstood nor misrepresented.
Never w as man more triumphantly
vindicated than is General Grant by
this verdict of the masses, never were
infamous and vindictive calumniators
more signally rebuked, never did the
world witness so majestic a national
proclamation of "well done good and
faithful servant," never did any politi
cal part- have more reason to be
proud of this display of public confi
dence in its principles, its integrity
and its leaders.
Greeley is so badly beaten that his
extreme misfortunes excite pity in
generous breasts, llow keen must
be his anguish to know that those
very Democrats, upon whom he had
lavished so much fulsome praise,
cither obstinately stayed at home,
rather than vote for him, or support
him reluctantly without a particle of
He, a good man in many respects,
represented the very worst party that
ever existed in the country, at least
such is the judgment pronouueed
through the ballot box last Tuesday.
The opposition was not so much
against Greeley as the party he
represented, and the verdict is
against restoring the Democracy to
tho control of the Government; it
condemns the effort to bring into
power the rebel force of the South ; it
frowns upon the men who betrayed
their country to fill the land with la
mentations and woe; it denounces
the inhuman cruvlties by which
southern white rebels have terrorized
over the almost defenceless negroes,
and union men have been driven from
tl eir homes in the South. The ques
tions at issue were of grave impor
tance ; the people understood them,
and no man, however great or elo
quent, could have prevented the Cnd
ingjf a righteous judgment. I'raeer
An inordinate ambition to lx$ Pres
ident, has damaged the reputation of
some of our greatest statesmen. Hor
ace Greeley was not insensible to the
danger of cherishing this foolish pas
sion, and on one occasion in a speech
delilered in Canada, declared in sub
stance that he was uninfluenced by
any such itching desire, and had no
expectation of ever lcing a candidate
for presidential honors. Yet he has
been a cadidate of a party that in no
just sense represents his views that
is composed of those classes to which
be Las heretofore considered it unsafe
to entrust the reins of power. It has
been a most singular presidential
contest in regard to the management
of the diverse elements of the oppo
sition, and nomination of Horace Gree
ley to represent, what did not truly,
really coincide with his character or
The People cannot be deceived by
high sounding phrases, nor will they
follow the lead of great men, how
ever valuable their public 6eriees
may heretofore have been, unless
those men are Jcading in the right
Greeley was influential as a Re
publican, but when he became the can
didate of Democracy, he lost his pow
er with Lis party.
The Republican party must sur
vive, though its leaders perish, was
the doctrine of the masses. Neither
Greeley, Curtin.Banks, Schurz,Trum
bull, or Sumner, could weaken the
party, but they easily destroyed their
standing before the people.
THAT TIDAL WAVE.
After the election on the second
Tuesday in October last, which re
sulted in such a brilliant victory for
the Republican cause, there could be
no doubt as to what the verdict of the
people of the State, as well as the
nation, would be, on the 5th day of
November. And now after the over
whelming defeat of the opposition,
we arc reminded of that promised ti
dal wave, which the" self-styled Lib
eral Republicans and a portion of the
late Democratic party had predicted
would sweep over the land, and as
they fondly hoped, would carry them
into the long looked for and much
coveted places of profit and power.
Unfortunately for them, however, it
did not come in the direction and
sweep in the courses predicted for it,
03- those who had eo eagerly foretold
its coining. Unlike the false prophets,
who for many centuries have been
predicting the appearance of comets,
which by a single sweep of their tails
were to brush this insignificant planet
which we inhabit out of existence,
but who have been doomed to disap
pointment by the nonappearance of
those dangerous visitors, which were
incontinently to scatter this mundane
sphere into miscellaneous space, they
have not failed, at least in one partic
ular in their prophesy. The tidal
wave did come, and was exceedingly
destructive in its character. Prompt
ly, up to time, on the very day upon
which its coming was foretold, it be
gan to roll. Rut while the Augurers
of Cincinnati and Baltimore were ga
ting anxiously towards the quarter
whence they expected its coming
and in eager anticipation of the en
tire submerging aud destruction of
their foe, to their utter amazement
and discomfiture, it came in another
direction, and suddenly striking them
in the rear and rising rapidly from
heel to the seat of honor, and thence
quickly to the occipital region, and
gathering in volume and increasing
iu momentum, it turned aud tossed
and whirled them around and about
in its remorseless current until they
were at last totally wrecked upon the
waste and barren sand banks reserv
ed by a patriotic and liberty loving
people, as a perpetual abode for "the
defeated and distracted cohorts of
machinations," and all others in like
The sudden coming, tho irresisti
ble force, the overwhelming destruc
tion carried to the allied ranks of
Liberal Republicans and Democrats,
by the aforesaid wave, will cause the
5th day of November i'i the year of
our Lord oae thousand eight hun
dred and seventy-two, to be ever
memorable in the history of our coun
try. While the sources of this mighty
wave were innumerable, springing up
in numerous spots all over the coun
try, we must not lose sight of the
fact, that one of its most gener
ous fountains was in our own county.
The Allegheny mountain and , its
spurs stretching through a large ex
tenttf country form the immense wa
ter sheds, by which the great valleys
on either side are replenished with a
never failing supply of pure water.
On the 5th of November, from this
portion of the Alleghenj, to wit,
Somerset county, a bounteous stream
of pure and unadulterated Republi
canism rolled off into the valley be
neath, and helped to swell the trave
which rolled over the land with such
majestic force, and which swept from
the face of our country every vestige
of opposition to Republican princi
ples. But voicing any further figure of
speech and turning from tidal waves
to stubborn figures, we congratulate
the Republicans of Somerset county
on the glorious work achieved by
them on last election day. They
have rolled up a majority of 2112 for
Ulysses S. Grant, the largest ever
given, we believe, for a Presidential
candidate. The triumph of our cause
is complete, and none have worked
more earnestly aud contributed more
effectually to it than have the Repub
licans of Somerset county. All hon
or to them for their faithful adherence
to principle, which has been crowned
with such an enduring triumph.
Long may they vace.

The defeat of General Banks for
Congress in Massachusetts is another
of those instinctive and emphatic les

not be moved by the defection of
their leaders. Mr Banks was a

and heretofore a successful politician.
His absence will no doubt be felt in

time exercised considerable influence,
but the people of old Massachusetts
could not stand the Liberal move

no changes the delegation will stand
eight Republicans to two Democrats.
It was not expected that the Repub
licans would carry, tinder the appor

The Democrats do not yet give up
Whitehorne in the Sixth district,
though they concede the election of
Maynard. Returns from Middle and
West Tennessee show that IJrownhas
lost heavily upon his vote for Govern
or in 1S70, and fears are entertained
in Democratic quarters that he has
been beaten. The Republicans ex
pected no such result and arc astonish
ed at the prospects. Brown'slosses in
Williamson, Giles, Cheatham, Madi

Kalb, Smith and Lincoln' amount to

of 1,000 in Haywood. If the same
relative loss is kept up in Middle and
West Tennessee, Brown may be over

made large gains in the Legislature,

The returns of the Congressional

only on the general reports. One
thing, however, is plain, and that is

larger than it is in that body at pre

of reform, reconciliation, corruption
and imbecility in office, have been pa

Our readers will be startled this
morning by the intelligence in our
telegraph dispatches, of the death of
Major General Meade. No annouuee-'
ment of his illness preceded the event,
aud as the great hero had not passed
much beyond the meridian of life, and
was considered in robust health, his
sudden demise will create as much
surprise as profound sorrow. The
telegraph is exceedingly meagre in
details, merely conveying the "infor
mation that pneumonia w as the cause ;
but the fact of the death itself will
be sufficient to create a general
mourning in Pennsylvania for he
was the favorite among all her "chil
dren of the blue." Though not a
Pennsylvanian by birth he was a son
of the "Keystone" by adoption, and
his name aud fame, local and national
arc indissolubly linked with the
records of the State. Few men have
filled a larger place in the public'
mind of the nation for the last decade,
and none have been more deserving.
His character was one of singularlv
unobtrusive merit, that was exhibited
in acts rather than words, in quiet
deeds rather than in ostentation. 1
His record is that of a life of the
highest usefulness as a patriotic citi
zen and soldier, and Death, that has
been so busy within the year among
tho good and great of the land has
brought down no more shining mark.
He is tho second of the great warri

his comrades iu arms, among patri
ots throughout the State and land, in
the ranks, of civilians, where his
greatness was appreciated, his sudden
taking off will come as a great
sorrow, and his memory be recalled
with gratitude nn I tears.
Major Gen. George Gordon Meade
was born in Cadiz, Spain, in the vcar
181'', and therefore at the time of his
death was in the 5Cth year of his age.
His parents came to this counfry
when he was quito young, and young
Meade graduated at West Point, July
1, 1835. He at once took a position
in the regular army as Second Lieu
tenant of the Third Artillery. He
served in the Florida war against the
Seminole Italian in 1S3" 3d. In
October 183!; he re-igued his com
mission, and for the next six years
lived in retirement as a civilian. In
May 1812, he was appointed Second
Lieutenant f;f the Topographical En
gineers and in that capacity served in
the .Mexican war. During this strug
gle he won a name for services at the
battles of Pa'u Alto and Monterey,
and after pasing through th inter
mediate grades attained the rank of
Major in June, 1 802, the rebellion be
ing then fully inaugurated. While
holding that position he participated
in the battles of Mechanicsvil'e June
2fith, Gaines' Mills June 27th, and a
few days afterwnrd was wounded in
a sk!rmi.-h, but not seriou.-Jy. For
his services on these occasions and in
view of the ability he manifested he
was commissioned Brigadier General
of Volunteers in August, 1802. In
the following month, September, he
participated with his command in the
battle of Antietam in which he had
to horses killed under him, and was
slightly wounded. Iu December he
was engaged in that memorable fight
before Fredericksburg, when the
Union forces, under General Burnside,
were defeated. Two cays after this
di.-astrous repulse, he superceded
(ieneral Buttertield in command of
the Fifth Army Corps, steadily
rising in favor, with every new trust
reposed in him. In June, lvJ3, he
was appointed Commander in Chief
of the army of the Potomac, and in
the first three days cf the following
month, crowned his military achieve
ments with the glorious result of
Gettysburg. His great ability on
this occasion was appreciated by the
loyal people all over 'the land, and he
was immediately July 3, 13(53--rai.-ed
to the rank of Brigadier Gen
eral in the regular army. Three
years later January -2, Con
gress gave further expression to the
feeling with which his efforts n that
occasion were regarded, by passing
him a formal vote of thanks for his
services in bringing about the great
est victory of the war.
In October 1SG3 he took part in the
battle at Briston Station, and in the
many less important engagements of
that year including the engagements
at Mine Run from November 2(5th to
December 3d. During the Richmond
campaign as commander of the Armv
of the Potomac, he signally distin
guished himself, taking a prominent
part in the battles of the Wilderness,
May 5th and (5th ; SpottsylvaniaMav
Slh to 20th ; North Anna" from Mav
23d to 20th, Cold Harbor May 31,
and June 1st; and the assaults on
Pctcrsburgh June 1C, 17, and 18. In
August, 18154, he was made Major
General irt the regular army, and in
July, of the following year he was
assigned to the command of the mili
tary division of the Atantie, and in
1806 to that of the East, with head
quarters at Philadelphia. This
latter position he held at the time of
In civil life, General Meade has
been as highly esteemed as in military
ranks. Among the most prominent
positions he has held was that of mem
bership iu the Historical Society of
Philadelphia, which dates back to
18(53. He has also been a member of
the Philadelphia Academy of Scien
ces since 18(15, and in that year was
honored by Harvard College with the
degree of L. L. D. The title was no
unmeaning distinction in his case, for
he wa3 a man of culture, and a good
student, although the graces of orato
ry never clustered about him, and for
that reason his intellectual attain
ments were never so brilliantlv ex
emplified. In the field or in civil life
Gen. Meade was as much distinguish
ed for his modesty as for worth, and
everywhere his sterling qualities call
ed around him hosts of friends. He
was one of Pennsylvania's noblest
