TLo tispers axe dUenssiug the cbaucrs of beat-
lug Senator Potnexoy for re-elect !ou,aud tlie prob-
jible combination which may lie made between
the Antl-Pomemy and tbe Lilwral member of
tbe Legislature, to that end. On the other band.
it appears to be pretty generally conceded that
the recent election gave hiui great advantages,
.and his friend confidently predict bis election.
We cannot truthfully say that vve would eri
oaly regret this bitter consutiiatiou. Tliat Poin
ery baa done much to disapprove of, uiust be ad
mitted: and vse have done our full share in de
nouncing him. Butt be cry of " Corruption " aud
"Eotten Commonwealth" has become atale, and
1 uaed on all occasion, simply as demagogue
clap-trap to get one set of men into office, aud
turn another ct out. The -belief that there was
any honesty or sincerity in tbe demand for "Pu
rification" and 'Ik-form," long since vanished.
We have heard the cry for Purification, and for
liurling certain men from power; and when that
demaud was complied with, we have beard a
louder howl than ever, that there was greater
corruption in the atcoiuplishmeut of the object
fonght for, than bad ever been known before.
We are satisfied bat Purification is not the thing
ought for, bat that possession of tbe office is the
real object. Senator Pomeroy's place and power
are wanted by others; and if they succeed in ef
fecting tbe change, we shall bear Just as much of
Corruption as ever.
In the canvass just closed ill Kansas, tbe force
of the assault was mado upon Senator Pomeroy.
Itvuwnxowol call; in ine season, and kept
up until tbe last in fact, is still kept up. The
-whole burden of tbe Liberal-Democratic papers
and orators was tbs enrmptiou and rascality of
Pomeroy. They based their opposition to Grant
almost exclusively upon the assumption that Pom
eroy stood high in tbe favor of the Administra
tion, and that the election of Grant would be tbe
success of Pomeroy. Even Kepnblican papers,
while advocating Grant's election, marred that
support bv coupling with It a protest against

THE OLD SOCTH CTICBCH.
Apart from tbe hames of its worshipers, and
surrounded by uiiuwve blocks' -otvoted to trade
manufacture,' stands one of the quaintest mee-ting-bonses
in America, the Old South Church.
Tbe Old South Society was the third congrega
tional society in Boston, and was orgamred in
1669, in consequence of a curious theological
quarrel in the Kirst Church. The first church
building: of this society, erected in 10G9. stood for
sixty jears. It was of cedar.and it had a steeple
and galleries, with the pulpit on the uortb side.
It was taken diiwu in lTKf, when the present
building was excited on the same spot, and re-li-nuiis
service were held in it for the tint time
outhe'ifithofApriJ, 1730 (O.S.) This meeting
house is rbaps tbe most noted church edific in
tbe United States. It is internally very quaint
and fnterestiug. Its sounding-board over the
pnlpit. itsjiigb, square box-pews, its doable tier
of galleries, in fact its whole appearance, atract
the visitors attention, and lead him to inquire
into its Jiistory, if he does not already know it.
But a tablet high above the entraco on the
Waihiugton street' side of The Old South is fre
quently mentioned ou tbe pages devoted to the
history of Boston before and during tbe ret ela
tion. When tbe meetings of citizens became too
Urge to be accommodated in Faneuil Hall, tben
much smaller thau now, they adjourned to this
church. Here Josenb '"Warren stood and deli
vered his fearless oration on the anniversary of
me raassare 01 jiarcti o,' 1770, in tieuance or tbe
tbe threats of those in authority, and iu tbe
presence of soldiery. Here were held the series
of meetings that culminated in the destruction
of the detested tea. In 1775 the British soldiers,
eager to insult those by whom they v ere so cor
dially bated, but whom they held so completely
in their power, occupied this meeting-house as a
riding-school ana place for ca airy drill. They
established a grogshop in tbe lower gallery,
whkh'tbey partially, prcacn editor spectators If
their sport. The rest of tbe galleries were torn
down, and tbe whole, interior was stripped of its
wood-work. Tho lloor thv covered with about
two feet of dirt. At this time the church was
without a liator, and no new pastor was or
diancd until 1779.
In 172 the buildingiraa thorongbly repaired
and pot in very much its present condition. The
first election sermon, was delivered in tbe Old
South Cunrr.ii la 11VI, Wxl tbe ancient custom is
still observed. As coon as tbe two branches of
the legislature have met and organized, tbe
Governor was informed that the Central Court
"was ready to attend' div iue ,sor ice." the nro-
cessiou was formed, aud the State government
marched to this historiac building to bear a ser
mon by a preacher dcsigr.aii.-d by tho preceding
legislature. The memories of two centuries con
secrated this lilaceof worship, audit is not
strange that it remained mi long barrier to the
march of business, although itsworsbip)iers havo
crept farther an ay, year by year, and found
boinrs at a distance from its tiiue-houoreil wall.

their opposition to him, aud even to lie drawn in
to feelings of strung friendship for him, w ho but
recently would lia e regarded it aa tbe great eat
triumph that could be acliic ed to defeat him. If
Grant waa to be assailed through Pomeroy, tbey
would accept the issue, and endorse them both.
In the meantime, Senator Pomeroy was speak
ins; in every part of the State, in favor of Grant's
re-election, never heeding the assaults upon him
self. While others were advocating the election
of Grant, with the protest that Pomeroy must bo
cut off, Pomeroy waa advocstiug Grant and tbe
union of tbe party, w itbont any protests. When
ever Pomeroy was announced to apeak, ho wrs
almost universally greeted with a left-handed
compliment by tbe local uewsnspcr or local puri
fiers; but be'spnko nevertheless, aud kept on the
even tenor of his way. If, under those circum
stances, they have so linked Grant and Pomeroy
together, that the triumph of the former is tbe
triumph of both, Pomeroy deserves tbe benefit of
it, and we are rather glad than othbtrwise.
Senator Pomeroy possesses Influence at Wash
ington, second to no other Senator, and is willing,
and more able, to benefit the State, than any new
man would be. It is extremely doubtful whether
the State would be benefitted iu any respect by
the election of another man to succeed him; and
we shall be prepared to accept his re-election
without the slightest pang of disappointment.
17 To the Republican'! question of last week,
we reply, that wo have nnj aulscri!er In the'
First Distric that we had before the election, aud
a number of additional ones. From the manner
of tbe queston, we infer that somebody has been
informing the Republican that our list baa wilted
fearfully, inconsequence of our position in the
late canvass. Whenever they undertake that
game, it will be money in our pocket; for we
trill receive two subscribers for cv cry one that
quits. These political triumphs are like catching
s greased pig by the tail before they know it it
is yanked away from thein. It is well not to car
ry matters with too high a band, and attempt to
crush ont every effort, in tbe hour of success, for
" white man is mighty uncertain."

between the Republican and tbe Leavenworth
Timet, as to which deser c the honor for carrying
Doniphan County for Price for he is really the
only one elected on that ticket by the whole
County. In this muss, they are likely to leave
whiskey without its just share of the honor; and
they make no account. whatever of the money the

office in Highland, and in which a certain candi

Guessing. We are not good at guessing.
When tbe Topeka Record published a letter, esti
mating the majorities of the Counties of Kansas,
and giving Greeley about 1500 majority in the
State, we tried onr hand at it, giving what we
thought would be tbe majorities, and putting
them fully as high as we supposed tbey would
go. Some of the papers said we were wild in onr
estimate, and the result shows that we were.
The majority for Grant in tbe State is almost 10,-
000 higher than we estimated!
ty According to tbe Leavenworth Timet, a
majority of tbe Leavenworth County delegation
in the Legislature, were elected through Senator
Caldwell's influence, and will be controlled by
him. According to this, he is not quite so- dead

More careful estimates than could be mule
while tbe tire, was raging iu our aister eity now
reduce the losses to eightv or one hundred mir
Iious. Of this sum a moderate portion will roll
on the insurance companies, aud a very consider
able pait will be berne by wealthy estates, like
tbe Sear estate, and the Everett estate, which
will still W left with millions after deducting all
their losses. A statement furnished by the New
lork insurance companies shows that thirty
eight companies have risk iu Bostou amounting
to $57,789,553; twuty-two companies in other
States have insurance in Boston amouutiug to
$35,415,611, and six foreign companies have risks
amounting to txpatfil. The first is incom
plete, but tends to show that the total amouut of
nsKS neia uy all companies in Boston must be
nearly two hundred millions or which thirty
millions perhaps will fall within the burned dis
trict. The insurance losses are lessened bv the
fact that the heavier losers had practised wLat is
absurdly stjle.1 "insuring themsehes."
If the total loss in Boston foots up at $90,000,

000,000 to 830,000 000, a is probable.'tbere is no
reason to regard the destruction of the remaining
sum of 800,000,000 or c70,000,000 as any iwrnia

so far as inconvenience may visit the laboring

Of course there was quite as much interest felt
at the White House as elsewhere in the result of
the election yesterday, though, from the quiet
ucmcauur oi iresiueui viraui, lew wnulil nave
supposed that he waa olio of the two persons
most directly concerned in the result. A number
of the persoual friends of the President, together
with the members of his oflicisl household, were
gatuerca in ueuerai l'ortefs room to receive the
news. Among those present wero Secretary
Kobesou, Attorney General Williams, Judge Car
ter, Judge Mac Arthur, Justice Swayue, Admiral
Porter, Governor Crooke, J. K. Jones, United
States Minister at Brussels : A. S. Solomons, Esq.,
Col. Webster, Gen. Hancock, Senator Morrill, of
Maine, General Dent and others. General Grant
occupied General Porter's seat, while his son,
Lieutenant Fred Grant had a seat next to him.
Telegrams were brought iu almost momentarily,
and the excitement in tbe gathering it un to
fever heat, tatefter State had wheeled into line
with the colossal Kepnblican majorities; but
through all tbe enthusiasm the President pulled
tranquilly away at his cigar, pausing only to
kneck the ashes off aud lusure a good light.
He waa by all odds the coolest man in tbe room.
His inquiries and suinrestious at times showed.
however, that he was well informed in regard to
the political situation in the different tititrx.
Several odd incidents occurred to create a laugh..
Almost every uispatcn iroui me east bad tbe
words appended, "Bauks reported defeated by
5,000 majority," and tbe dispatches from other
quarters began to have tbe iuveitable item about
Bauks, varied to say, " Banks reported dufeated
by 5t000 majority." Finally tbe iteration was so
continuous that w hen tho IViJutrril dis
patch, and tbe expected words did not appear, it
was suggested to him to turn the page over and
make sure there was not soinethin'' about lisnLa
on tbe otber side. Just in tbe crisis of tlin n.
citemciit, and w hen all were on the q i rire for
utrimiio iwni iium iew jurR, a ouis.y anil moat
promising looking telegram of several pages was
received, directed to President Grant, marked,
"Deliver immediately." It was toru open in
stanter, aud the semicircle drew in closer, with
bated breath, while tbe President, after glancing
at the opening lines, proceeded, with a twinkle
of something very much like fun in the comer of
nis eye, to read it lor tile edification of the eager
crowd. It was a telegram from a horse doctor
out iu Dulntb. giving the President an elaborate
prescription fur the treatment of his etiizisitie
horses. Of course this episode created some fun,
aud it was voted that the horse doctor hail ta
ken rather an opportune time tu advertise his
remedy for " tbe prevailing disease." As the dis
patches came in from Pennsylvania there were
many hits shied off in regard for some of tbe no
ted politicians of that State, and there were nu
merous inquiries about Curt in, and as tu vrhrtlur
be had voted yet. Tbe President listened Iu the
bandinage with impertnbable face, and gav e no
sign as to jnst what he tbongbt about this or
that man named iu tbe talk. At 1030 o'clock,
cuough return haviug beeu received to insure
Grant twenty-eight States, and a mpular ma
