The Late leciijns.
The result of the late elections is shown.
DT 'he returns received, to have been a Re-
publican victory. We have no deirs to
count oar jrounds, nor to conceal them.
They are the witnesses of a manly strug
gle, against odds. Nor would we conceal
tbeir disastrous consequences not so much
0 the party, which will outlive and out
last and bring'tojthe dust these victors of
lo-day, and whose principles being Iros are
Imperishable; but, in the defeat of the
Democratic party, President Johnson's plan
for the immediate restoration of the Union
is defeated also. The tide of fanaticism
which has swept over the nation, engulph-
in its laws, its liberties, and its material
prosperity, though visibly abating, has not
yet reached ita ebb. Every hour it tails,
and the lime cannot be far distant when
the people of the North, so long led through
deep waters by blind guides, will search
-for dry laud and other leaders. That day
will see the triumph of Democratic princi
ples and of those who hare faithfully up
In the elections just closed, the Demo
cratic party has been faithful to its time
tionored principles. It has sought nothing
ess than the good of the whole country. It
'did not hesitate tojindorse the measures of
an administration whose election it had op
posed, for those measures were well adapt
ed to the end which it never lost sight of
;hron2h foar vear3 of war restoration ol
the Union and its laws, of peace, of our
civil liberties, of local self government, and
of fraternal good-will between .all sections
of our common country. And to day the
chief regret of every intelligent Democrat
wi'.t be, not that a local election has been
lost, but that Mr. Johnson's political meas

elections were held.
What Will CoDgrcsi Da?
The Republican Congressman undoubtedly
arrest the President's attempted reconstruc
tion at the coming session. They have the
numbers, and a majority of them do not lack
the inclination. But, under existing circum
stances, will they dare exert the will ? It is,
indeed, possible that the strategic lines
drawn around them by the Democratic par
ty may "give them pause." If the Presi
dent is firm on bis side, all they can do on
theirs is to delay, not defeat, the success of
his plan. If they arrest bis experiment, he
has only to appeal to tbe people in the con
gressiooal elections, less than a yeardistant.
Wm supporters would sweep the conr.try,
as the Democratic party weald have swept
it in the elections just closed bad that issue
been nakedly presented. The Democrats
have engineered the politics of the country
into such a shape as to make President
Johnson, caaste. of the situation. If th9 Re
publicans elect to oppose him, he knows
where he car: find a triumphant majority,
even with the Southern States excluded.
Cut if the hopelessness of effectual oppoi- i
lion dragoons the Republicans into his sup- !
port, our purpose is equally accomplished, j
The reconstruction policy triumph?; the
Southern States come back; political parties
will be reorganized with reference to the
vote of tbe whole coantry. The reconstruc
tion question, having then become obsolete,
will be coosigned to history. Ii will be no
longer an issue in national politics, and the
dividing line between parties will ba drawn
with reference to other questions.
Explosioa cf an Infernal Machine.
Ntw York Nov. 9:h. At 11.30 A.M. to
day, an explosion occurred in front of the
Wyoming Hotel, No. 334 Greenwich street,
shattering the front of the hotel and break
ing nearly all the buildings opposite and
along the square where the hotel is situated.
Two men were killed and cine wounded.
A short time since a guest of the hotel left
a box as security for bis bill, and promised
to call and redeem it. Tbe box was placed
in the bajgage room in charge of a'porter
This morning smoke was seen issuing from
tbe box, and it was taken by two men and
carried to the sidewalk. Just as they reach
ed the sidewalk an explosion occurred,ki!l
iDg both men who were carrying the box
and doing much damage as above stated.
Tbe police arrested all tbe persons stopping
at the hotel, and tbe matter is now being
investigated. Tbe explosion was very loud
and attracted the attention of persons who
were a mile away from (he scene of the oc

The Richmond Times tells rather a good
story on the darkles. An agent of the
Freedmen.' Bureau, it seems, made them a
speech, disabusing their minds of the idea
that tbey were to have farms at Christmas,
his discourse abounding, in fact, with ad
vice calculated to promote tbe interest of
the race.. His propositions were carefully
elucidated, and understaodingly, as be
thought. To be sure, however, that his
speech was understood, he suggested that
they should vote, and the time had come
for them to vote. As the question was be
ing put, every countenance was changed;
every trace of sadness vanished. In some
it was swallowed up in a sense of the
momentous import of the occasion and con
sciousness of tbe tremendous responsibility
of meeting it; in other it melted under the
beams of radiant smiles, which were witb
difficulty restrained from audible expression
in chuckels of complacent delight. Propri
ety, however, prevailed, and the enraptured
freedmen heard the question put in silence
and in order. But hardly were the words
"say aje" out of the mouth of the Provost
Marshal when their smothered exultation
burst forth in one simultaneous, unanimous
"a-y-e," prolonged aod drawn out utterly
beyor,d all comparison with the "wounded
snake" or "lengthened sweetness," or any
other known standard of protraction. Never
was a deserved honor bestowed with more
flattering unanimity or more hearty good
The Provost Marshal, basing his assump
tion on long established, but now obsolete
precedents, regarded this vote as decisive
and entirely satisfactory. Nevertheless, for
formVs sake, and, perhaps, too, to drill the
treedmen in alt tne exercises ol trie elec
tor's manual, he proceeded to pat the ques
tion negatively : "All opposed, etc., say no "
Upon the instant, this injunction was an
nounced with a "n-o !" which rattled lie
windows and jarred the rafters ol the house,
round; it rivaled tbe "aye" in the unanimity
and fervor with which it was delivered.
Algebraically speaking, this was the addi
tion of a quantity with the negative sign to
itself positively affected. It most unani
mously brought the commissioner elect
down from his giddy hight back to zero.
What a commentary on the fickleness of
popular favor ! What a salutary but fear
ful exhibition of the power of -'the people;"
by which man are made ia a breath, and in
a breath undone !
The Provost Marsha! a plodding Conser
vative, we infer did not at all compre
hend the weighty siguificance ol what had
transpired. We have it on tbe authority of
one of the outraged and ' indignant electors,
that he went so far as to insinuate character
istic intellectual otattsenesa on the part of
the assembly. Alter informing them that,
as they were incapable of making an intel
ligent choice for themselves, he would him
self choose a commissioner for them, he
bade them to take themselves off, and even
vented a profane imprecation against tbem
The assembled multitude did not wait for
"the benediction that follows after prajer."
A bomb had fallen into this black "sea of
npturneJ faces," after which it "continued
to enlarge itself, till by wide-spreading, it
dispersed itself in naught."
U'e will not-presnrae to attempt any in
terpretation of the event we have chronicled
only its most obvious meaning is discern
ible by os. The elucidation of its bidden
significance we leave to those original
profound and ingenious expositors, the
Radical preachers of negro .equality. We
will, however, ventured the assurence that,
in their hands, it will- be found to demon
strate triumphantly the pre eminent claims
and qualifications of iho negro for immedi
ate admission to the elective franchise.
ExecaUon of ffirze.
Washington, Nov. 10. The execution of
Wirze took place at 10.30 this morning.
At 10-20 A. M., Wirze came from his
cell in the 0:d Capitol prison, accompanied
by Provost Marsha! Russell and Fathers
Boyle and Wigget.
Amid profound silsace, the Provost Mar
shal proceeded to read the order of the War
Department, founded on the verdict of the
Military Court which tried the prisoner.
When the reading of the order was com
pleted, Wirza conversed with those on the
platform with seeming calmness and self
possession, and it was remarked that he had
a smiling countenance.
To his spiritual advisers he said "I am in
nocent. I have to die, but I can die like a
man. I have hope in the future. I have
nothing more to say."
His legs and bands wero then lied, the
noose passed around bis neck, and the
black cap placed over his head. He stood
erect without faltering, evidently having ner
ved himself for the solemn event. Those
on the platform retired to the railir g, leav
ing tbe doomed man in the centre of tbe
srncture. After a few moments of profound
quiet, the drop. at a preconcerted signal, fell.
The convict directly after falling was con
siderably convulsed ia his legs, bet the
agony was soon over. He hong about fif
teen minutes, and was then cnt down. His
neck was broken by the fall.
The following letter was written by Wirze
before mounting the gallows :
Old Cspitol Prison, Nov. JOth, 1865
Mr. Shade :
Dear Sir It is no doubt tbe last time
that I address myself to you. What I have
said to joa often and often, I repeat, accept
my thanks for all yoo have done forme.
May God reward you, I cannot; still I have
something more to ask of you, and I am
confident that yon will not refuse my dying
request. Please beTp my poor family; my
dear wife and children. War, cruel war,
has ewppt everything from rne, and to day
my wite and children are beggars. My
life is demanded as an atonement, and I am
willing to give it, and Thope that after a
while 1 will be jodged differently from what
I am now. If any one ought to come to the
relief of my family, it i the people of the
South, for whose eakes I bave sacrificed all.
1 know you will excuse me for troubling
Farewell, dear sir, may God Mess you.
An immense deposit of superior black I
AccooQts to be Spared.
In the Republican party, with all of this
clamor for the soldier, it is a most remarka
ble instance that no private soldiers are nom
inated for office. The Generals, Colonels,
Majors, Captains and Lieutenants, are can
didates for place, attend Conventions, get
civil appointments, seek position in return
for their public services. These gentlemen,
who received high wages, double rations,
long furlonghs, who, before the war, were
lawyers without cases, physicians without
patients, merchants without shops, whoctur.
ing the war, appeared in public parades,
were recruiting officers of home guards, and
super-efficient in hunting up deserters und
panting to kill Copperheads, since tha war
attend Convenlionscontrol caucuses, and
are willing to be candidates for every con
ceivable office within the gift of the loyal.
It is, however, a most remarkable cir
cumstance that limbless soldiers, brave men
who slept in the swamps, marched on half
rations, who have returned homo in destitu
tion, are scarcely known in the Republican
ranks, and never nominated where there is
the remotest chance cf election. Let our
hearts go out to the brava soldiers of every
clime. Tha lower his condition the mara
entitled to honor ; but let it be real and not
feigned. There never was a tyrant's heel
which trod unpunished upon a patriot's
grave. History is rich in her resources, but
she is too pcor to afford one single example
of the ultimata triumph of tyrants over lib
erty, or the permanent establishment of ar
bitrary power over tbe inherent rights cf an
enlightened people. The great Deity, vbo
weighs the wrongs of man in one balance
and his rights in the other, as carefully ap
points the full measure of His righteous
judgment fo overtake the evil-doer and the
tyrant. After the storm of war has blowi)
over, the clouds dissipate and the sen as
sumes his wonted empire. But forca gives
way to reason. Justice asserts her suprem
acy over revenge. Confiscatioa laws, tha,
most villainous relic of a barbarous a;e, are
quickly dropped in the broad, deep ocean
of peace. Even pious military Superin
tendents of Freedmeirs Bsreans commence
returning stolen property to its lawful own
ers. Little by little tha people will begin
to reason after this wise: Whoever steals is
a thief, no difference, when, where, bo.v, or
from whornhe stole. Whoever murders is
a murderer, and whoever commits crime is
as clearly a criminal. In the confusion cf
cf war, criminals, grown bold and desperate,
paraded their stolen goods, wore their sto
len clothes, rode in their stolen carriages,
drove their stolen horses, exhibited their
stolen watches and jewelry, played cn their
stolen pianos, ate out of their stolen dishes ;
ministers of heaven, high and holy officers
of the Christian Commission, read and
preached and prayed out of bto'en books.
By-and-by the owr;er9 will arisa from their
stupor and inquire for their property. Suits
will be instituted for recovery, and just jadg
raents in replevin will restora the property
and degrade the thief wiih tha receiver
of stolen goodi. And, pardon tha digres
sion, is it not a marvellous thing that Henry
Ward Becher, who preaches abot every
thing, and from year's end So years end
sends forth a stream of words, words, words,
in imitation of an o.'d library thrown into a
san3aga chopper, that Mr. Bsecher has nev
er said one word to his congregation about
stealing from and returning stolen goods to
the Southern people ? Is it less a wonder
that presbyteries, synods, conferences, con
ventions, associations and other Divine as
semblies, which keep the conscience of
America and propose to convert the world,
should have remained silent upon th8 sub
ject ? Af:er the re-organization of States
and civil courts, grand juries in the desclato
South will commence tha inquiry after
crimes and criminals, stolen goods a:id
thieves after mnles and their riders. The
negro, who loves his master, and whom
they have forcad on the witnsij stand, and
officers who disgracsd their uniform and
scandalized tho Christian era by violating
the laws of civilized warfare, will be in
dicted. Requisitions from Governors of the
South will give sorr.o of these distinguished
gendemen permission to return on public
duty to stand trial and make defense,
or suffer penishmant. Sails for damage
will follow tha assessment of arbitra
ry taxes. Terrible murders will be call
ed op fcr legal investigation. Criminals
will reaiiza the power of the country to de
fend itself ia tirr.9 of war against the abuca
of power by military imbeciles anJ tyrants,
and give a sufficient reason for the murder
of citizens under cover, of law. The op
pressor will give way to the oppr?ssed. So
ciety will be re-tored to its equilibrium.
There will be other Wirzts who have kept
Northern prisons, yet tried by civil courts
for cruelty and murder of prisoners; oihsr
Champ Fergusons tried for cold blooded
murder under pretense of arresting drafted
men and deserters. This shootin", and
stabbing, and mobbing, that have occupied
the pastime of loyal gentlemen, will yet
ondergo legal investigation, and justice will
be vindicated by the law. The day of just
retribution will. come; no human power
can stay its steady march ; it has already
begun. One long, large, and dark account
is already in process- of settlement. The
poor, honeBt, brave and injured soldier is
calling the hacghty, insolent and upstart
officer to account, and kicks him with im
punity in the street. The hospital soldier,
who came near dying from neglect, pulls
the nose of bis worthless surgeon. Long
standing injuries will be redressed, and lime
and God will square accounts arid make ail
things even. It is this that makes these
men cling to office, and determine to gov
ern this country by a minority, to hold the
power of the country by any means, by
every means. They have threatened the
country with a Dictator, attempted to utterly
disfranchise a larger body of freemen than
were ever disfranchised in any coantry on
earth ia any 8g9 of the world. With no
other purpose thao to continue the power
of a minority, they now propose to invite
barbarians to the elective franchise, for the
purpose of doing hereafter, by numbers,
what they have heretofore by force. Thev
rchy if I
they cocjd agree upon the person o! his
majesty, and failing to establish an aristoc
racy of lineage in a country where all are
born plebeians, tbey have laid the founda
tions of a heartless aristocracy in th,e bonds
of the government issued to pay its enor
mous debt. They will do anything to es
cape this fearful responsibility ; but tbe
responsibility is on them. Tbe evil day
draws nigb, when they ebal say, "I have
no pleasura in them ;" and when tha
change comes, tha resistless tide will sweep
down all before it. The stentorian voice of
Phillips, in the fearful whirlwind of popu
lar passion, will be no more than the nur
sery whistle in the autumn storm. The
I mercenary newspapers will then side with
power and change their principles and their
fortunes together. The mercenary priest
hood will scent the danger in the distance
they who have hounded the country on to
civil war, will asseverate before heaven
their innocence of blood, and go South as
missionaries to preach their theorie? and
build op establishment whera they bave
incited armies ta overrun anJ destroy. Tlie
hopa of the country ia in tha administration
of i:s government by a Democr&t, who
would dash a crown from hi head, who
would rather be President than King, who
instinctively hates aristocracy, who was
born a plebeian, who wii not trample down
tno South, for it hi hone, or oppre.-s the
people, for they are his kinsmen. You may
S3y that the Sn ; r cannot to trus'ed to gov
ern itself. Andrew Johnson will tell you
that this is tha tyrant's worn out j!ea. Eng
land would enfranchise Ireland, but she
cannot trust her. Austria would enfran
chisa Hungary, but sho cannot trust her.
Russia wcuid enfranchise Poland, but she
cannot trust her. Andrew Johnson will, end
if ha does r.ct, he ought to answer yon, that
tha South don't need your trust ; shi has a
righ t of heaven to govprn herself, a;.d ev
ery Democrat and liberal man will respond
to the manly stand taken by the President
in defense of the liberty cf his home and
the manhood cT hi3 people. The South
once governing herself, the principles cf
Democracy will be reasserted ; justice will
be established ar.d enforced. This is the
terror of tha criminals in power. Cut the
day cf salvation will come. The clouJs
may gather, but they must bo evanescent ;
the sun is permanent and cannot ba moved.
F.rr.-r, for the day, may rule, but Truth is
imperishable, and will livo fcrever.
The Election in New York resulted rather
disastrous to the Democracy of that State.
The Abolition Republicans will have a ma
jority in the. Stata Legislature on joir.t ballot
of six'y-tno. Tbe only people who seem
alarmed at the result are tha Republicans
themselves. They had but faim hopes of
carrying tha election ; and whea tha reialt
was announced they were amazen to think
they had accomplished so easily what :hey
did dot expect to ba able to do. Ii all gees
to show thf-t tha Damocracy wera cot at
work but allowed tha election ta pass by
default. Tbe Democratic party know that
in order to te successful they mast neces
sarily perform a certain amouat of hard
work,and they do not feel willing to perform
that labor until euch time arrives that they
can receive a rewarJ fcr it; ar.d that period
hs no t yet arrived; tha people aro not i-iek
enough of the ruinous policy cl the present
party in power; they have not sufilcently
felt the oppression upon them, caused by
taxation and high prices When the people

Catawissa Railroad. We mentioned a

later information we learn that on Friday
last, the Directors conferred the lease of the
above road to the Atlantic and Great West
era railroad for the consideration of 5355,000.
Possession of the road is to be given on De
cember 1st, 1865, and the term nf the lease
is 993 years. The leasees furnish all

ran the road at their own expense, giving
