Deaxc Eaoi:; Yu Lave heard of
the result of the election. -I 1 , . ' i ;
' Beecher and I were both beaten. .
Tbero are various ways of accounting
for this result. ;; -
Oaa is that neither of us got votes
enough. , .- - : . ' . . .
That is understood. -
But why? .. . ; :,- : , f-
I'll tell you. It is owing to pur imper
fect system of suffrage. -:
, If tho ladies had beea allowed to vote,"
Beecher would havo been ejected, j, . .
I believe all the ladies, out of gratitude,
would have voted for Beecher. " V
j Except, perhaps, the dressmakers, who
might have preferred Cuyler. ..... .-'.?
If suffrage had been universal, and the
ballot-box had been sent over., to Ireland,
I should have polled a heavy vote in Coa

tionately remembered. ,', ... ' ; !
. O'Pake, who was . confident that I
ought to be elected, engaged an Italian
band of two harps and fiddle to serenade
me as soon as I was declared elected. :
The figures set aide these calculations,
The tsrritory would want to become a
State, and if its sentiments at ail corres
pond with the lattitude, it: would be suffi
ciently Northern ia politics ; to insure
prompt admission to the Unioa. -
. There is a suspicioa that, owing to their
very northern situation, the popular ideas
of the population might run to an extreme
that would out-radical tha Radicals.
Their views oa , the, suffrage queEtioa
might out-Beecher Beecher. - -: : r. -
