.The Democratic journals think, they.
have reason to rejoice. , They gain five
Congressmen in Pennsylvania, and two
in 'lndiana. On the popular . vote in In
diana • they have a majority. In Penn
sylvania there being no State officers;
the majority must be determined from
the Congressional vote. - - Any' fair count
-of this vote slows n preponderance of
Republican votes of from five to seven
thousand. In low , a we have the whole
delegation with a tremendous majority.
In Nebraska our triumph is decisive. In
Ohio we have a majority -double that
given our State officeis fim several years,
and our Congressional majority is not
reduced. Now what. have our friends of
the other side gained I"i'lley control no
State Government. They have no ma
jority on popular vote, except in Indiana.
Their gain in Congress is immaterial
ffir party purposes, as from the results it
is clear that we will have a large major
ity in the Lower House. Seven States
have voted, on which they hoped for
such results (IS would place a majority of
them under their control, and they find
their opponents With working majorities
in all of them,- on State officers, Con-,
gressmen and Legislatures, except the
Legislature of Indiana.
Ho r w Many such victories as those will
place the Democracy in power? Three .
of the States that have voted lire always
necessary for a. Democratic victory. No
matter what the vote is elsewhere, Penn
sylvania, Ohio and Indiana, must always
be carried by the Democracy, before they
can hope to elect a President or control
n Congress. They know n u ll appreciate
the truth of this, and always diredt their
Worts accordingly. 'When they succeed
they are jubilant; if they fail they con
cede that their chance for a National
success is gone
Then by all the calculations of politi
•cians heretofore made, the result °film
late elections ensures a Republican tri
umph in the campaign of 1872. It makes
.certain the control of the next Congress,
and ensures beyond all peradventure the
complete carrying out of the policy of
the present administration. If the De
mocracy consider this victory fur them
sclvets-as-wrrendrirhuno.nt of ,their-princi
ples, they tmust attach a meaning to
words when used in political ;drafty,
greatly diftbrent from that which attaches
to them on all other matters. Their
leaders should, however, understand .by
this tittle that the people can no more
be deceived by their false claims of
thanXtheir false meteesions to
paldrotism ttnd statesmanship.
It suits the leaders of. the .Democracy
amazingly well to falsify the recoed, in
order to make out a victory for them
selves on the popular vote.. Tltey were
defealed in Pennsylvania at the late clue,.
twit, in s . pite of the apathy, fends, and
dissatisfactionin the ranks of the Repub
lican party, and they know it. But it is
necessary to make capital for the neat
struggle that they should assume that
they were victorious. • In order to shoW
how dalibsrately, they misstate the facts
concerning the popular vote,,we give the

Congress at the recent election :

This is the slate mi which the Democ
racy claim to have carried Pennsylvania,
on the iipialar vote. Just let us analyze
it. It gives them as Democratic, all the
votes cast for Independent Republican
candidates in the Second, Fourth and
Ninth Districts, and.throws out of count,
all the . votes cast for liidependent Re
publican candidates, hi the Eleventh
:Lod Twenty-Het:mid Districts. They all
know this is onfair, and purposely con
ceal the truth about it. Creeley always
claimed to be a Republican, and has
since the election announced his adhe
sion to the party imthe strongest terms.
Thomas received a large number. of Re
publican votes, and Witmer, ill the Lan
caster District did not pretend to any
-Democracy whatever. To counCall
these votes Democratic is ti &surd. Take
the vote on any office, where the
"party' nominations were distinctly
-marked, instead of the vote for
;.7ress,- and see what, homnues of their .
majoriiY. The votes as above

We have heard this at le4st once a
year since 1850, and-if - it - weren't for the
respectabilitypf our neighbors, we would
be compelled to say that they don't be
lieve a word of, it. The prophecy 10
failed too often to deceive-
even those
who tkltey it.
't'ttr•. numerous friehds of Senator• Cam
eron will be glad to learn that the report
that he was stricken with paralysis last
week was entirely unfounded. The yet
coin Senator is, and has been in his
usual giiiml^hratt It, and is vigorous enough
to indicate many more years of political
and business activity. Senator Cameron
is not a young man by any means, but
in energy and vigor few men of any age
(spd him.
TnE 1 - 0/itnteer-of last-week is amused
that we claimed a victory in our first
issue after the election. We are grati
fied that we accidentally contributed to
our neighbors' enjoyment. They have
not been jolly for sonic time-at political
events, and we hardly belieVb the results
of the-election could contribute much to
their good humor. If our cannon cut
and big letters have made them laugh,
we are sure we are rejoiced at the effect
We will inform our friends that we
have heard the news. We know we have
a majority on the
.popular vote in this
State. We know ,that we have a ma
jority of the Congt4ssmen elect, and tha7t
we have both branches of the :Legislature.
We know, too, we have doubled °Ur
majority of last year in Ohio, that we
have the same number of C,94ressmen
in that State that we had at the last
CongresSional election. W *. e have lost
Indiana by a small. nmjority on the popu
lar vote, and the Legislature. We have
carried lowa and Nebraska by as largo
majorities as ars safe for any party to
have anywhere. We regret the defeat

smiled by Republicans in Congress, in
this State, and that Mr. Schenck is beaten
by a beggarly majority, by a renegade

these are the misfortunes of

from ANlicts the victors emerged without

London, Monday, Oct. 24;1870
There are rinnontlicre that conditions
of peace have been arranged, between
Marshal Bazaitui and King Willi in, by
which it is stipulated . ; th . !t. the Empress
Eugenie, who has given her consent,
shall go to Versailles and sign a treaty,
tee the representative of the only Govern
ment recognized by Prussia.
The Timee of this morning says :
" Bazainc, when ()tiering
_to surrender,
demanded 'for himself.a. position which
would probably have enabled Win to take
a prominent part _ in the restoration of
order in France after the conclusion of
peace." •
Gen. Boyer, en leaving Versailles,
went to imzemburg to get Baimbeau,
who had previously been to St. Peters
burg, to go as an envoy to Napoleon at
It is intimated that Russia, not join
ing England, Austria, and Italy in the
effort to bring about peace, is acting in
dependently, but energetically, in the
same direction. M. linimbeau, who
saved the Czar's life when an attempt,
was made to assassinate him by Bee°.
zowski in Paris, on the sixth of June,
1807, has just gone from Wilhelmshohe
to St. Petersburg on a secret niiSSlon
from the EmperopNapoleon..
It is said that he I.ol.sis of peace likely
to be accepted by the Prussian Govern
ment is the renunciation of territorial
spoliation from li i r•ance on receiving Lux
emburg, and that safe conduct has been
asked for M. TLie•s to enter Paris, in .
order to obtain the aegnieScence of the
Govern went.
The opimione of Florence, referring
to the proposed aimistice, says the
French will doubtless agree, as a pre-
liminary to peace, to dismantle the fort
resses of titrasbourg and Mete, and to
pay an indemnity of .2.86,000,00.0, but
Prussia insisted on the cession of Alsace
and Lorpaine.
Tours, Monday, Ode. 24, 1870
Fears are entertained here concerning
the sudden decision of England to me
ndiate between Franco and Prussia. Some
poisons imagine that it is a plot to aid in
the rr-onthranoment of the Bonapartists ;
others seem to acquire confidence in the
eagerness of Great Britain to tang about
a peace. It has been generally - considered
that England Is willing to work Inure
for the interests of Prussia than those of
France, and_ the significance of her move
ment is apparent, now that the difficul
ties in- taking Paris have been demon
strated. England is also aware Unit the
large French armies just organized are
quite prepared to act on the' offensive ;
that the bad season is at hand', and the
dillieulty_of obtaining food' for the Ger
mans rapidly iniircasing in cons'equenco,
and that Gen. Troche is preparing a se
ries of formidable sorties.

OSWEGO, KANSAS, October 20, 1870
DEAR DERMA) :—Several Months since
I sent you a short letter, at the close of
wliich I Promised to write "More in de
tail." A residenbe in Oswego, since the
first day of May last,. has given me am
ple opportunity of traversing the coun
try within a - citenit of about forty miles,
and I now feel partially prepared to com
ment upon
During the summer of 18f8, when it
was our pleasure to first travel to the
border of - Southern - Knnsasimnst - cast - an
anxious eywatlir oil into the Cherokee
Nation, it was a matter of considerable
'speculation to us as to the number of
years it would - require to develop this
o - gettle up altit, , •
rolling, beautiful and productive prairies,
and - traverse them with railroads. To
- cast - anclmr - hete - at' - that ann. Tsbe 'Med

happy influences of civi li;zation and pro
gression could not : he'felt in
This seemed to be the • place where a
•Daniel Boone spirit 'could rest in a state
of quiescence for long years to come
—but how sudden the change ? The
wonderful growth of Southern Kansas
had been continually sounding upon our
ears, until the first of December• 1809,
when r{•evngain vqntured southward, and
met With the most convincing proofs of
Western enterprise. The Missouri River,
Fort Scott and Gulf Railroad conveyed
us within four miles of the city of Fort
Scott, which was fast assuming a inetz
ropolitan air. Ten four•-horse coaches,
known as " Double Deckers" carried
115 passengers from the end of the track.
Accommodations could not be had, and
courtesy to strangers was unknown.
your humble servant secured it ; private
room, in which there were 24 bunks
built from floor to culling, and all °mu-.
pied with quiet sleepers, doubtless
dreaming of this New Eldorado of the
"Southward" was the watch
word. We were convinced that the
progress of Southern Kansas was a fixed
fact. Upon our return to Kansas, early
in the spring of 1870, the Missouri River
and Fort Scott Railroad conveyed us to
the Southern border of the State, 75
miles of road having been constructed
during the winter months.'

to the
letter from Washington to the Boston
Traveler, written by one who evidently
has had access to all the official informa
tion on the subject, gives the following
reasons for the Prosid9nt's action, in the
removal of Mr. Motley :
1. That when the President came into
office he sought to conciliate the good
wilt and support of Mr. Sumner. It
at the request of the latter, solely, that
Mr. Motley was:appointed minister.
2. That after Mr.. Motley's appoint
ment ho submitted a long paper contain
ing his views on the "Alabama" contro
versy, which Mr. Fish read and returned,
with the remark that the President had
Other views which ha desired Mr. Motley
to catty out, and which Mr. Fish com
municated to Mr. Motley.
3. That on his arrival in London, Mr..
Motley wholly disregarded his instruc
tions, and carried Out his own private
4. That Mr. Motley was immediately
coin:lll'M for this act of insubordination
and discatirtesy, and directed to repre
sent the 'government, and not his own
private notions.
__...-s—That,_confidiug Sumner's
disposition to support his administration,
the President consulted with him as to
the San Domingo treaty, and that, dur
ing an interview on this subject, Mr.

G. That when Mr. Sumner violently op
posed the treaty the President considered
himself absolved from any obligations
to Mr. Sumner or to Mr. Motley, who

7. That Mr. Motley ref Used to atipoint,
as a favor to the President, a son of Sec
retary Fish as Assistant, Secretary of Le
gation at London, although said to be in
• • iy of the — post - dun
8. That Mr. Motley meddled imEarglisli

excite much feeling on the part of lead
GENTRAL APATHY was the hero of the
late election in this State. We have
shown how over thirty thousand Phila
delphia voters stayed away from the polls
Thrdughout the interior of the State the
proportion seems to have boon as great.
We have taken at random the vote of
1808'in seven of the interior counties and
compared it with.their official vote this
year. The total in 1898 Was 9,1,879 ; in
1870 it is only '77,019—a falling off Of
17,860, or nearly nineteen per cent.
Next to Philadelphia, the strong lie- .
publican county of Lancaster shows thus
far the heaviest, falling oil'. Ilere arc the
votes of the two parties for the President
in 1868 and Congressman in 1870 :

spectable gentleman of our borough,
received, during the past week, a letter
from a party in New York \city, inviting
him to enter into the money market--
that is, to engage in the circulation of
grre,y-money. From the letter in !pies,
Lion, we learn that his terms arc very
l'eas s enable, viz : "The, price of a $5OO
package is $lOO ; of a $l,OOO package
$200." lint order to give his correti,
pondent a fair, show on the start, he will
not reciaire more than one-I•onrth of the
money down cash. That is, if you wish
$l,OOO package you will haVa to pay but
$5O ; or if you desire a $5OO package, you
will- pay only $25.
