Tut Tuna, and last session of the Fortieth
Congress (may its like never more be seen)
will commence on Monday, December 7th.
Unless the present law is repealed, thelfirst
session of the Forty-first Congress •ill com
mence at noon on the 4th of March.
Is accordance with the previous adjourn
ment; a session (if such it can be called) of
Congress was held on Tuesday, lasting less
than' four minutes, which was attended by no
Democrat in the House, and only one in the
Senate, while Senators Wade, and three
others represented the Republicans. In the
House, except:4lr. Colfax, only six others, all
Republiemil, 'Were on_hand. brief
prayer in each House, thanking the Lord for
bringing the people to "right conclusions" in
politics, both bodies adjourned.
- Some politicians, hungering for a bite at
the spoils of the Federal Government under
the coming regime, have proposed that the
Seymour electors should case their votes
unanimously for'Grant in the Electoral Col
,legt.. The pretence is that Generfli Grant
would be relieved from any cbligation to
the Radicals forlis*election, whereas every
body knows thrit he is under no obligation
at all to the extreine portion of that party,
and 'Olathe IVSS only their nominee by ne
cessity.. The real object of the proposal that
the Seymour electors should vote tor him is
- only a bid to sell out the Democracy for a
slice of the spoils. There is not the slightest
chance that any such absurd suggestion will
be adopted. The Democracy would make
it eb hot for thq traitors who could so basely
betray their.confidence that they would be
glad to escape the country..
N. Y. Herald expects that "the elec
of Gen. Grant will be the beginning of
the end of radicalism and the dawn of a new
and- better dispensation." It states that
"soon after his nomination, Gen. Grant said
to a friend, who is a prolninent officer in the
Nyar Department, that he had always been a
Democrat and that he was a Democrat yet.
He did net seek the Presidency', and did not
care to fill that office for the mere honor or
profit that it would' bring him ; but he did
feel ambitious to be the means of restoring
the country to its former peace and tranquil
lly by completing, through civil authority,
what as a military officer he-was obliged to
leave unfinished. - Taking the testimony of
those who have enjoyed to a greater or less
degree the friendship and confidence of Gen.
Grant, there does appear to br t a very well
founded reason fin' indulging these expecta
tions. Those who know him best assert that
the General is possessed of an ardent desire
to contribute all that is in his power towards
softening the asperities of -Ithe present condi-
tion of affairs in the country, and that he ai
"‘ C teek: to so exercise the prerogatives of 11
office as to deserve the respect of all parties.
Our expectations do not equal our hopes.
Though General Grant is tip be the Presi
dent of .the United * States after March 4th,
1809, he will not have such au oYerwhelm
ing Radical majority in the next House of
Representatives as has cursed the nation for
the last four years. The Fortieth Congress,
including the Southern carpetbaggers, was
thus politically divi le l :
Radical majority, - - - 110
Two-thirds, - - - - - 142
According to the latest returns at hand;
the political complexion of the next House
of RepresentatiCes will be as follows:
Radicals, . 138
Democrats, -
Radical majority, - - - 61
In this calculation it is assumed that the
Radicals Will elect three Congressmen in
New Hampshire next March, and two, of the
four to be chosen in Connecticut in April,
though in the latter State they may se
cure but one, as was the case, at the Congres
sional election of 1867. Thus, it will be seen
that the Radicals will not have a two,thirds
vote in the. Forty-first as they have in the
present Congress.
Our latest advices from New York say
that Wall street continues in an excited and
unhealthy condition, end indicate that we
are entering upon a period of financial de
pression like that which overtook England
before the resumption of specie payments.
Government stocks continue to fall, and.
though Secretary McCullough has promised
to ease the money market by issuing more
greenbacks, the great financial kings do not
seem to put much faith in his ability to
change the tide. Before the election, great
promises were made of the happyeffects that
would follow grant's election. Now we
have the sequel, as given by the New York
correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger, a
paper whose authority on mbney matters is
beyond question: '
"The sudden and heavy depreciation in
stocks has made beggars of many who, a
few days ago, accounted themselves rich.
The government credit is suffering severely
along with the rest, while in mercantile cir
cles business is well nigh paralyzed, owing to
the impossibility of procuring discounts:
Not a few Western men, who have been here
to borrow money to move the crops, have
gone home as they went. It is now ac:
knowledged on - all hands that if this state of
things does not experience a change her the
better, soon, the most disastrous consequen
ces to general business are inevitable."
FEARFUL that they would be beaten in
Florida, even over the bayonet and over the
negro vote, the Radical managers at Wash
ington caused the negro and carpet-bag Legis
lature to pass an act vesting in themselves
the choice of Presidential Electors, and tak
ing it away from the people altogether!
There is no language in which such an act
of rascality can be sufficiently condemned.
Only the most scandalous party would en
tertain the idea for a moment. It is a rob
bery of the people of their highest and
dearest rights. What Would -have been
thought if the present DeMocratic Legisla
ture of Ohio had refused to allow the people
of that State to, vote for President, and
chosen the Electors themselves? Such an
act would have led to revolution. •
'A rrtErry quarrel is going on among the
carpet-baggers of Florida. Their Governor
has proved distasteful to them, and impeach
ment articles have been introduced against
him in the Legislature. He declines to va
cate his of lee; says the Legislature is not
a legal body, as most of the members have
accepted other offices. The principal mov
ers in the Impeachment are the Lieut. Gov
ernor; who wants the Governor's place, and
a negro Secretary of State. The main
charges against the Governor are "lying" and
"corruption," which uply with equal force
to! most of the carpettaggers.
Trrravi thousand white men are disfran
chised in.lVest Virginia, seventy thousand
in Texas, ninety thousand in Mississippi,
eighty thousand in Tainessee, ninety thou
sand in Missouri, and large numbers in the
other Southern States. This was done by the
Radicals. : f More than half a million whites
denied the right to vote td gratify party
craft, and that power conferred upon as many
negrocs Is this "a government of the pea
pie by the people," such as white men fought
to perpetuate?

of the results. The following seems to be as
nearly correct as can be furnished with the
information at hand:
NEW, Yom— New York gives Seymour
over 0,000 majority, and elects Hoffman: by
about 25,000. The discrepancy between them
is owing to Hoffman's personal popularity,
and to the fact that many who would have vo
ted for Seymour disliked Frank Blair. :The
Republicans have a majority in the Legisla
ture, owing to the unfair manner in which
the State is districted, and will return one of
their party adherents to the E. S. Senate.
The Democrats gain five Congressmen and
the Republicans cope in the Buffalo district.

about it appears to be that stocks have been

A SPECIAL telegram to the Philadelphia
Press, in relation to the. late Radical tri
umph in Connecticut, declares "the registry
law passed by the late Legislature did the
business." That is a fact no one will deny
who has examined the law referred to. By
the provisions of the act thousands of poor.
men were deprived of their votes in Novem
ber. They could not comply with its unjust
and vexatious provisions. Two days at least
were required to perfect a registration, and
business operators of the Radical faith denied
their employees,whom they knew to be Dem
ocrats, absence from labor for this length of
time. In all parts of the Union the party in
power are attacking the right of poor white
men to vote.

and gathered violence as it continued until
near the end. It was accompanied by the
usual rumbling and gratin, sound, to which
was added the loud rattling of window
frames, shattering of glass, banging of doors,
and the crash of objects falling from shelves
and mantels. The first impulse. of nearly
everybody was to rush into the streets, which
were instantly filled all over the city with
excited crowds, including some W.ll o had not
yet completed their toilets or had rushed
tumultuously from bed. Several light
'shocks were
° felt subsequent*, which in=
creased the apprehensions of the multitude,
and kept the streets filled as places of safety.
The time of the second shock was 9:23
o'clock ; duration five seconds. Lighter and
briefer tremors occurred at intervals of about
half an hour until fifteen minutes past 12.
The more pronounced bf these caused fresh
stampedes to the street of those who were at
tempting to conduct business or trying to
work. Business generally was' suspend
everybody was in the streets, especially in
the dower, the business portion of the city,
where the ground is most unsafe, the streets
narrowest, and where there are the oldest
and worst built brick buildings.
The shock was preceded by asabterrane an
noise like the rolling of many piece.tof heavy
artillery. Then a shivering sensation of the
earth, followed by most terrible undulations
or waves, causing the houses to rock to and
fro and many to tall. Nothing can be com
pared to IL No motion or sensation assimi
lates it at all except, perhaps, the, fear that
might be caused by some unknown, unearth
ly,. horrible, supernatural nothing—without a
cause or ibundation. Great buildings bent,
and heaved, and 'cracked in a manner terri
ble to witness. Chimneys tottered and fell
crashing to the earth In all parts of the city.
Old buildings and thoSe in process of con
struction were levelled to the earth, while
others were riven from "turret to founda
tion-stone." Some window panes were
cracked or broken, some chimneys twisted
or overthrown, some cornices and firewalls ;
crumbled, and considerable plaster split.
Mantel ornaments and shelved crockery
were thrown down and broken ail over the
city. Some top-heavy articles of furniture—
like corner etageres loaded with books—
were thrown. Tanks and dishes containing
..water and other liquids slopped their con
tents. Clocks stopped running. 'Door bells
rang. Imperfectly secured doors and -win
dow . blinds opened. Toll structures, like
steeples and towers,were seen to sway slight
ly, and the motion af the earth under the Feet
was unpleasantly plain to persons out of
doors and not leaning against any superstnte
ture. Horses started and snorted, exhibiting
every sign of fear, and in some places dash
ing off furiously with their riders or attached
vehicles. Dogs crouched trembling and
whining, and in the suburbs fowls flew to the
'trees • uttering notes of alarm. The panic
among women and children was for a lbw
minutes excessive, and their cries and tears
were very moving. In every case but One
the fatal ca.sualities resulted from the falling
of brick or plaster, cornices or firewalls upon
persons passing upon the sidewalks beneath.
Had the shock occurred half an hour later,
when a large number of persons would have
been on their way to business and labor,
many more would have been killed ;Ina
Fissures are opened in the earth in many
parts of the city, and springs called into ex- I
istence in , the streets. A street car filledl
with passengers was upset. The one side of
the track has been elevated at least two lest
from Its original position. In some of the
low made portions of the city, houses have :
sunk from six inchei to five feet Into the'
earth. Streets are barricaded and houses
propped up in every part of the city, at least
throughout the business portion of it. Prop
erty has already undergone a considerable
depreciation in value, and speculators have
now a golden opportunity to:amass fortunes
in the purchase areal estate.
The shock has been fillt more or less
severely narotigtwut the State, and in souue
places caused considerable destruction of
property—though not, as far as ascertained,
much loss of life. The Court-house and
some other buildings at Los Angelos are re-
Lorted in ruins. The Court-house at San
eandro is totally deniolished, and Deputy
County Clerk, J. W. dosselyn, instantly
killed, while flying from the building. The
Court-house was used as a prison, and all
the prisoners were buried 'neath the ruins,
Some fifteen or twenty were confined in the
building at the time. Haywood, on the op
posite aide of the bay from San 'Francisco, sus
tained considerable injury. Edmondson's
wheat warehouse is completely demolished.
The Washington Hotel, is a hotel no longer—
a perfect wreck. Many private residences
are in the same condition.- Thousands of,
people .were roaming the streets, fearing to
remain in their houses. The hotels are al
most untenanted: Hundreds of carriages left
.the city with persons seeking the open
; Attorney
As 'far as can be ascertained but ten or
-twelve persons have been killed in San Fran
cisco, though many more are supposed to be
buried under the ruins. About sixty persons
have been more or less injured. Many of the
most valuable buildings in the city arc coin
,plete wrecks, and will have to be torn down.
Many are pronounced unsafe, and people are
not'permitted near them. The tall chimney
of the workshop of the Alanicda Railroad
vibrated more than a foot from its perpen'-
dicular line, but was not thrown down.
The water of the bay was perfectly smooth
at the time of the shock, and no perceptible
disturbance of the surface took, place. Even
at the edge, where the' ground is almost
level and-the water constantly shallow for a
considerable distance, the ripple was hardly .
noticable. The shock was felt on the steam
ers very distinctly, dud the engines were
stopped, the officers sUpposing that some ac
cident bad occurred th the machinery.. The

reined just preceding the convulsion. Af

Slight earthquakes have been of almost
daily occurrence since .ok.t. 21. On Thurs
day night at nine o'clock there was a sharp
shock, lasting twelve seconds and creating
considerable alarm among the people. No
damage was done to property. The quake
was heavy at klan Jose.
An eye-witness gives the following partic
ulars :
- "I was sitting at breakfast with my m ifs,
children and mother-in law, when the first
shock occurred. My wife nervously ti,ked
me, "What's that ?" I replied that it was a
heavy wagon passing, but a glance showed
me that no vehicle was near. I ha.d hardly
spoken when the second and heavier shock
came, and my wife, with the most intense
fear pictured on her face, shrieked that it was
an earthquake. Then came the Mita shock,
and they all'shrieked in fear and mental ago- ;
ny. 3ly wife cried that the wall was orm- I
ing. She had seen a crack Mille Master sep- I
orate for about an inch. For about a second
or two, I was completely unnerved and help
leis, but I then partially regained m - compo
sure, and, putting my arms round , the wo
men, I shouted that there was no (larger at
all—let the cartluptake he had as it mi4lit, as
we were in a frame house. My wile said
that there was, as she thought the earth was
Opening. I replied that that was , itnpossible, II
as I knew we were upon geed ground and
not upon one of the many swamps of.the city
which had been covered over. While I was
quieting and direCting their attention to
heaven and its preserving care, each second
shock became stronger than its predecessor, i
and with each he shrieks of the women and
children grew orse. These, and the fear of
the dreadful pl nomenon which was upon
us, actually made my flesh creep. It was
such a look in my wile's fare that first un
nerved me, Finally, in much less time than
it has taken to tell this, the last and strong
est,undulation occurred. , When the shocks
ceased, all were so weak' that they could not
stand, and indeed I Was weak enough myself,
though it was necessary for me to show a
calmness which I did not feel. We found
that everybody had rushed to the streets—
the place of greatest danger. My family
would have hurried out of the house also had
I not restrained them. There were four per
suns killed, all of whom lost their lives by
running out of doors.
"Of all the terrible experiences which hu
man nature can undergo, by far the most
dreadful is an earthquake. It suggests the
coming of the last day, with all the terrible
convulsions of nature, which are prophesied
will accompany it. In fire, storms, and
whirlwinds—no matter how dreadful they
may be—man can do something, and still
feels his power; but in an earthquake he has,
no power; he can do nelliting whatever, ex
cept stand or run, petrified with' fear, feeling
indeed, as if lie would actually melt with ter
ror." . • . . .

merely tantalize titem with the hope of a cure
or apply remedies which make them worse. I
would not wish to assert anything that would

say that although it may be prodneed from ex

caused by direct irritation, applied to the mu
