Among - the better
parties, the anions of Grant and Colfax has
been regarded as a foregone conclusion ever
since the October elections. Indeed, it may
almost be said that such has been the fact
from, the first announcement of the New
York nominations, for the conviction was
very general with leading - Democrats in all
portions of the country that the choice of the
Convention was not such as the necessities
of the times demanded. Atter the disap
pointment which ensued had somewhat sub
sided, a hope sprung up that, we might re
deem the mistake by energetic labor, but at
no period during the campaign bas there
been sufficient confidence to enable us to
conduct it with that vigor essential to a suc
cessful issue. It required hard labor to in
duce many of our most zealous adherents to
enter upon an active prosecution of the can
vass, and in every locality there were some
who looked upon defeat as an event , so cer
tain to happen that they utterly refused the
slightest assistance either In time or *means.
The Opposition were bold and confident in
the same proportion, and labored with an ac
tivity and earnestness that rendered the can
vass one of the most difficult for those who
were compelled to take its management on
our side that we have ever known., With
this state of affairs familiar to all Democrats,
the verdict of Tuesday is an occurrence
which most of them anticipated, and the
great majority of our party will learn it with
much more regret at the folly of our own
party representatives than disappointment
that Grant has been elected.
The returns are meagre from most of the
States, but show that sufficient hale been
carried by the Radicals to give them nearly
two-thirds of the - electoral college. The
Southern state have exceeded our evlota
tither, all those admitted to participation in
the election giving Democratic majorities ex
cept Tennessee and South Carolina. The
effect of the October elections is seen In the
increased Radical majorities in• the several
States heretofore carried by that party, and
decreased majorities In the Northern Demo:
cratic States. The Radicals gain in nearly
every county in Pennsylvania and will have
from 20X100 to 25,000 majority. New York
has certainly been carried by the Democrats,
but Hoffman will have ten thousand more of
a majority than Seymour. The Radicals se
cure a majority In 'the Legislature of that
State,vtdch will give them the United States
Senator, while we gala - several Congressmen.
Hon. J. R. Doolittle loses his seat in the Sen
ate by a Republican majority in the Wiscon
sin legislature. The Democratic Congres
sional delegation from the South is largely
Increased; and with the gains we have made
in the Ncirth, will prevent the Radicals from
having a two-third vote in the - House in the
next Congress. Among the notable inci
dents of the day is the re-election of Gen.
Butler by a majority of 7,000 to .8,000.
We give below the electoral vote of each
State, with the estimated majorities on the

RADICAL ILLECTIONEZIUNG TRICKS
For weeks past, the Radical papers have
been hall of reports of alleged naturalization
frauds in all portions of the country, and es
pecially in the cities of New York and I?hil
adelpbia. We have 'examined the pipers of
both sides, published in the localities where
these frauds are represented to have taken
place, with an honest purpose 'to ascertain
the truth, and are entirely satisfied that in
nearly every instance they were pure inven
tions, designed to effect the elections. The
Radical leaders copcluded some time ago
that if they could get up a hue and cry on
this subject, it would result in the exclusion
of scores of naturalized voters in every dis
trict where they had control. The plan was
deliberately conceived, and carried out with
the satanic impudence tfor which that party
is unrivalled, and too-3941 has it done its
work. The most shameful part of the trans
action is the eagerness with which certain
judges took part in it, thusdestroying forever
the once high reputations they possessed,
and seriously impairing public confidence in
the character of the judiciary of the country.
If anything was needed to convince thinking
men of the terrible mistake that was made
when the judicial office was rendered de
pendent on the varying phases of popular
opinion, the disgraceful conduct of Judges
Read and Brewster,in Philadelphia, Ihrnish
es the lacking material.
The succession of reported outrages in the
South, with which the 'telegraphic columns
of the daily papers have been laden for sev
eral weeks were a part and parcel of the
same unblushing scheme of- y deception.
This fate of the game wasuz t quite as
original as the other, having been in yearly
vogue since the days of "bleeding Kansas,"
but did its *service scarcely Ices effectually.
It is an old saying that thisehood travels a
mile while truth is putting on her boots, and
the idea was hilly verified in the case of these
stories. In nearly every instance they have
been contradicted, but the • rebuttals either
came too late, or were not printed by the
Radical papers, or placed in such obscure
positions 'that they Were seldom noticed.
Now that the election is over, we shall hear
of no more Southern,outrages, and the same I
journals and individuals that gave tturmintut
prominence will soon be as hard at work
proving that Cougusst‘ial reconstruction II

state of subjection. • '
ELECTORAL. WEIGHT OP TIM
Ever since the formation of the Govern
ment, the Presidential elections , have been
more largely controlled by the Influence of
the middle States than by any other section.
There have been twenty Presidential elec
tions in all. At• the two first Washington
was unanimously chosen. Party differences
began with the campaign of 1801, when Jef
ferson was elected. The electoral weight of
the several sections of the Union since that '
time may be determined by the following
summary : - The New England States cut
the bulk of their electorial vote for the suc
cessfial candidate in eight elections, and for
the unsuccessful candidate in seven elections.
The !diddle' states voted on the snecenful
side sixteen times, and on the unsuccessful
side twice (once for Clinton and once for
Jackson). The Western States voted on the
successful side twelve times, and on the un
success:M.Blde twice (once for Cass and once
for Fremont). The Southern finites voted on
the successful side fourteen times, and on the
.unsuccessful side four times. The Pacific
States hive participated in four elections,
and have every time thrown their electoral
vote on the successful side. Of the two ad-1
verse instances cited, the Middle States
should really be credited with but one, for
General Jackson, for whom the balk of them
voted in 1825, had a plurality' of the electo
ral and a large austerity of the popular vote,
but was defeated by Adams in consequence
of the election being thrown into the House
of Representatives. As the Middle States
have gone, so has gone the Union, in every
election except that of 1813, when New York
arid New Jersey gave DeWitt Clinton thirty
seven votes, and Pennsylvania gave Madi
son (the successful candidate) twenty-five.
TO descend to particular States, in the
twenty Presidential elections, Maasachu
ssette has thrown her weight on the miccessdill
side ten times and on the unsuccessful side
the same number. Pennsylvania has cast
her weight on the successful side eighteen
times and on the unsuccessful side but twice
(for Jefferson in 1797, and Jackson in 1812).
New York has cast her weight on the sue.
cessfig side seventeen times and on the un
successful side but twice (for Clinton in 1818,,
and Fremont in 1857). She did not partici
pate in the first Presidential election. Vir
ginia cast her weight on the successful side
fourteen times and on the unsucessful side
five times. She . did not participate in the.
election of 1824. Ohio has voted Shift 1804,
and has been successful eleven times and un
successful five times. Illinois has voted
since 1820, and has been successful ten times
and unsucciessfill twice. Kentucky has voted
since 1792, and has been on the winning side
eleven times and on the losing side eight
times ; three of these being when she voted
for Henry Clay. These examples, and others
that might ha - recoided, show that Pennsyl
vania and New York have been the Keystone
to the arch, and have in nearly every ease de
cided the contest
The following table shows the .popular
vote cast for President since 1824, with the

A quirrel between members of the Legis

Republican members, reituting to accept the
will of the people as the law of the land, ca

done exactly in their limited sphere what the
Southern members of bangress did on a

and Withdrawn in a' body. This is the an

was the last mean); left to these Republican
members to embarrass the majority, and so,
heedless of the halm that might result to
public interests, they adopted it. The result

to render it impossible for it to do any official
business; and-the popular majority that gave
