Jk the October elf-tlnns, nevorthuluss, so much
j I of ho and frai has mingled In this i citii.i
' camptltn, that the popular vordlrt cannot 1m
C recorded without emotion.
Tho election of (len. (Iiiakt Is thojlnal of
" an eljjht years' mrucpln, which has teemed
with 670114 without a parallel In thu anuali

placed at the head of public all'airj far tho

1 polgu shall have had tlmo to cool, no canlld
! person will for a moment doubt that tltu
I interest 3, thu honor, and th tflory of tho
Republic arc secure In his hands.
One of tu first objects to which tho new
Admln'tttrallon will turn Its attention, will bo
Iho completion of tho task of reccnatructlun,
lho paclfliatloii of tho South, nnd tho ivhtnin
lion of order aud security to that BUfli-rnij;
portion of tho Union.
As to reconstruction, the triumph of Ghaut
tnd the doleat of Bl'.vitovii, In a manner i
I'.jjnal and conclusive, will ol themselves vir

tco tho threoStatrs now outside of tho Union

bring them capital, labor, and skill to restore
their warto places, lest thry engender the
bollef that they aro venomous porpentx,
crawling on tho fneo of tho ground, rather
than civilized men, walking erect In tho dig
nity of citizenship,
Tho Incoming1 Administration will glvo
cnnlidenco to capital nnd labor In tint North,
and iufuro such vigor through every depart

tho gloomy year that preceded tho war.
Tho absence of all fears of an attempt to
overthrow tho reconstructed coverntnenu by
force, and tho rdjnstmont of our financial
dilliculticB nu an equitable and solid bns.s s
tank to which tho new rulers will promptly
address themselves will calm tho public

Among lho first duties to which (len.

and vexes both tho licit and tho poor.
Among tho reforms which wo hopo to c
Instituted clthrrby the closing session of tho
present Congress or the nen!ng scrslou of
its successor, is n rsdieal revision of our na
turalization coda Let tho right of aliens to
tho ballot bo tn protected by safeguards that
its administration idiall ceasn to bo a libel
upon Judicial proceedings, n burlerquo um
tho elective, franchise, and tho sport nnd prey
of reckless pattiaans,
In one pnrtleulnr wu antlelpntn that Gcu.

This (piality Isementlal tn tho successful dis

olllcu. Tho Tresldent mui-t trust very much
to thu honesty, tho sagacity, tho dltcre.lon
of sulmrdlnntc s. Gcu. Giiant has proved
that he enjoys tho fnrulty of selecting assUt

that ho will not fuil to exerclso both In the

If the uew AdminUtrution t-hnll prove as

In a new order of things whoso culminating

Those who aro loo blind to reeognlito thu

If this document bo net a forgery and tho

of tho action recommended Is not plainly
stated In this circular, but only hinted at.
"Thcro Is, of coumi, on Important object to

Mr. Tlt.DKN and his associates so anxious to
know, In advanco of tho Associated I'rrsa re

ask for exact figures they will bo satisfied

defeat, to hedge their bets on tir.TMorjn and
IIoKl'MAN, thcro remains only ono conclu
sion, nnd that Is, that they had somo plan in
view which thoy dared not explicitly do
scribe, but which was no less lmiortant than
tho figuring ont of a Democratic majority
by foul means. If the fair result of tho elec
tion was ngnlnet them. This view of tho
matter is corroborated, too, by tho conduct of
tho canvasscrn in tho Fourth and t-eventh
Wards, in holding bnck tho returns lost

should havo madu them.
