SILVER LINING TO THE CLOUD
As in the dark hours of our great
revolution, the night watchman in
the streets of Philadelphia pro
 claimed : "Past 12 o'clock, and
Cornwallis is taken." Thus are we
i- reminded of it by the result of the
election just held. Now may we
! joyfully proclaim, Cleveland iselec
` ted and Kellogg beaten. Two
*events second in importance to none
gone before. Let us bow in reve
rence and render thanks to the Di
vine Ruler of nations for this vic
Y' tory, this dawning of a brighter
' day after our long dark night of
corrupt Radical bondage.
ALBANY, Nov. 5.-The Argus
iill say to-morrow: "Cleveland is
elected, and he will be inaugurat
ed: States not at all in doubt
have elected Cleveland and Hen
diicks, who will take the seats to
which the people have appointed
them: Communications to the Ar
gus to-day from counties in New
York demonstrate the election of
- Democratic electors by a conclusive
and safe majority over Blaine. The
electors having been made Demo
eratic by the people, New York
w. will remain, be declared and he
Y counted Democratic, and whatever
eeessury to this act of truth and
ce b, thoroughly and fearlessly
HE STATE ELECTION. - From
re orts all in Cleveland's majority
in 'ouisiana is 17,401. We have
elected five out of six congressmen
by good round majorities. Their
names are St. Martin in thoe First
District, Gay in the Third, Blan
Schard in the Fourth, King in the
,- ,Fifth and Irioth in the Sixth. In
the Second District Houston was
defeated by the Republican candi
date Michael Hahn.
The best of all is the defeat of
Kellogg in the Third District by
dŽ:,,ay. Thus it is that we have at
iast been ridden of the worst of the
carpetbaggers, and'can now breathe
free once, nmore. Hurrah fon Cleve
land,and Hendricks! Hur"rah for

"HIP! HIP! HURRAH!"
On Wednesday morning the first
dispatches coming over the wires
announced the election of Cleve
land and Iendricks. In the after
noon of the same day, however, the
Associated Press dispatches told us
that the great State of New York
was in doubt, with the probability
of a small Republican majority.
This somewhat dampened our spir
its until Thursday aftcrdbon, when
both the Press dispatches and pri
vate telegrams told us that the
"Plumed Knight" had been utterly
annihilated, and the pure patriot,
Grover .Cleveland, would occupy
the Presidential chair for the next
four years. We append the latest
telegrams, and from them we glean
enough to assure our readers that
they may safely join us in a "Hip !
Hip! Hurrah !. for Cleveland and
Hendricks !"
