A Triumph of Equal Suffrage.
telegraph gives us this morning
some further returns from the election in
Maine. They show a Union msjerity, in
three fourths of the State, of 18 640, a gain
of nearly four thousand on last year. The
total gain is probably about six thousand,
ad had a full vote been polled it would
have reached ten thousand.
This triumph is a triumph for Negro
. Suffrage. This was the only question In
issue before the people of Maine. The De-
- mocracy acknowleaed the abolition of slav
' ery and endorsed the policy of President
Johnson. The Union men made the cam
paign openly and fairly on the principle
. that the ballot should be granted to all free
men everywhere. Of course there were
some timorous gentlemen in Maine, as well
- as in Ohio, who were terrified at the idea of
going before the people upon this issue, and
piediotedail manner of ruin to the party1.
'What has been the result ? Tbe people of
' Maine have endorsed the principle of Negro
Suffrage, and endorsed it, too, by a majority
much greater than was giver; to the Union
party at the previous election.
Let this result be a lesson to weak kneed
wire-pullers, who are eternally being
frighteaed by political scarecrows from the
discharge of duty. We venture to predict
that wherever Negro Suffrage is made the
issue the Union party will gain votes, as it
hat in Maine, We look to Iowa and
. Minnesota to justify our prediction.

COLUMBUS, September 14.
Woed County Apples and Peai consti
tute an attractive feature of the Fruit De
partment of the Steta Fair, and fully sus
tain the established reputation of the Man
mee Valley at a superior fruit-growing
section. Mr. 3. W. Boss, from his "River
side" farm jurt out of Perrjtburg, has by
far the largest and finest exhibition of Ap
ples. Hit collection consists of one hun
dred and nineteen named varieties, and
twenty-eight not tamed, making a total of
one hundred and forty seven, many of
them very choice. The specimens are fair
and free from wormy defeats.
Mr. George Powers, a widely known
fruit cultivator on the Msumee, hat a splen
did exhibition of Peart from the Perrys
burg Nursery of Messrs. George Powers
& Son. The collection number some eighty
five varieties, including many of the
choicest kinds. The size and fairness
of the fruit show adaptation of soil
and climate and successful culture.
Hr. Powers has from five to six hun
dred Pear trees in bearing, began putting
out in 1854, and hat never lost but two or
three from blight, He cultivate both
dwarf and standard trees, and attributes
much of their vigorous growth, freedom
from blight, and remarkable productive
ness, to fnpquent mulching his pear or
chard with the grass cut from hi lawns.
The ground under and beneath the trees
is covered with grass at often at mown.
It not only keeps out weeds and forms
needed manure, but gives a cool, moist cov
ering to the clay toil, in which the trees
are great feeders and thrifty growers. In
transplanting some large Pear trees in
1854, Mr. P. mulched the ground heavily
with cornstalks and other coarse materials,
and all grew well and still thrive, free from
the fatal blight to discouraging to many
who devote attention to Peers. Mr. Towers
informed us that the past season he also
mulched the ground between hit rows of
currants freely with cut grass, and obtained
increased size and quantity of fruit. Mr. P.
has in hit collection of Peart a few clusters
showing unusual productiveness. Among
them a top branch from a "Vicar of Wakf
field," scarcely a foot in length, on which
twenty-two large pears grew the present
season, and from, which but few were bro
ken in bringing the wonderful display of
fruit jewels to the Fair ; He hat also a
specimen "Duchess d'Angouleme" weigh
ing fifteen ounces.
On the Vegetable tablet we notice that
M- McMillan, of Toledo, hat a number of
splendid specimens, despite the ironical
'Potatoes they trow tmall

An Ohio State Fair would be without
credit in the Butter and Cheese Depart
ment but for Northern Reserve contribu
tions. - Aa it is, but few specimens of butter
are on exhibition, the principal being from
the dairy of Mr. R. Baker, Akron, Ijorain
county, and Mr. Andrew Havens, .Lewis
Centre, Delaware county. Small as it the
quantity, it is enough for all the Bread and
Biscuit contributed to the Fair by Columbus
Bakers and the house-wives of Central
Ohio. The Akron and Delaware butter
deserve tbe "red card" for superior quality-
Cheeedom standi forth in triumph with"
out a competitor! To the credit 01 tbe
enterprising cheese manufacturers of the
Beserve, their shelves make a splendid dis
play of go!den treasures. Geauga county
hat become the capital of Cheesedom at
home and at the Fair. Mr. A. Bartlett
exhibits sixteen English Cheddon Cheeses,
a late and popular style of cheese intro
duced by Mr. Harding in England, from
his factory at Fowler's Mills. The Ched
dens of Mr. Bartlett weigh some sixty-five
pounds each, and he will turn out three
thousand the present season. The milk of
eight hundred cows it used in their manu
facture, and up to September 1st two mill
ion pounds of milk had been mide into
cheese in this single factory. Mr. Bartlett
knows no good reason why Jonathan
should not like good cheese as well aa John
Bull, and is diverting a part 01 his make
from the Eoglish market. He hat of late
introduced tbe Gheddons in Cincinnati,
Indianapolis, fcc wh're they command
from two to three cents per pound over
home dairy products.
Mr. A. U. Hall also hat a very line ex
hibition from hit factory in Chardon, and
from the factory of Messrs. Hall & Free
man in new berry, lie n&t twenty-six
specimens on exhibition, three different
sizes, the largest ranging from ninety to
one hundred pounds. At Mr. Hall's Char
don factory, twenty-Eve cheeses are made
per day from the milk of five hundred
cows during toe fore part of th e season
lor the Southern market, in summer lor tne
English, aad in the fall for the New Or
leans, St. Joseph, && At the Newberry
fact Dry the milk of six hundred cows is
used, and large cheeses are made for the
.bake county very creditably comes in
for a share of Cheese celebrity at the Six
teenth Annual Stata Fair. Messrs S. E.
& H. N. Carter exhibit twenty-four one
hundred pounders from their factory in
Perry, where they manufacture seven per
day, ol superior quality, from the milk of
three hundred and fifty cows. They are
for general market and Bnd ready sale at
remunerative prices- Thev also have "Ohio
State Dairy Cheese" on exhibition, of then
domestic manufacture in La Boy, Lake
county, from the milk of about one hun
dred cows. These cheese average tome
108 lbs. and are for cutting and general
market. Two of this popular brand are
made per day. . '
Ashtabula, hitherto famous as the repre
sentative of cheesedom at state Fairtrteemi
content to rest on former honors and
prizes this year. Probably the sceptre hat
departed to Geauga, for there are now
eighteen flourishing cheese factories in the
latter famous grazing county. Messrs.
Budlong & Stokes have one in Chardon
and another in Parkman ; Mr. L. J. itan
dall one in Chardon, one in Burton, and
one in Montville ; Mr. Frank Smith one in

to-night. He has been endeavoring to ob
tain an order for the mustering out of his
old veteran regiment, the 56th N. Y. Vet
eran volunteers. He res-rets that the
Government u mustering raa -wa many
colored regiments, because veteran regi
ments are required to remain longer to do
what could as weU be done by them. He
says from his observations in South Caro
lina, where he is on service, that the clamor
of the planters against colored troops is
without foundation, and that bo more out
rages are committed by black soldier than
by white. He and hi regiment have been
in the service four years, and he thinks it
injustice to them that they should be re
leased because Southern men have preju
dices against colored soldiers.

A correspondent of the Concord (N. H.)
Statesman write :
Professor Buggies of Dartmouth College
had a very narrow escape at Niagara Fall
on Friday evening. While walking on
Goat Island with a party of ladies, one of
them dropped her parasol, which slid some
fifteen or twenty feet down the bank of the
river. Mr. Buggies went down and picked
it up, but on attempting to return, the
bank being steep, and the ground hard, lost
hi footing and fell down to the very brink
of the precipice, which at this point is
eighty or ninety feet high. Here he
caught hold of the roots ot an upturned
tree, the trunk of which hangs over the
abyss. The shock caused the tree to shake
violently, and it appeared on the point of
tailing over the precipice. The ladies
shrieked and called for help, but no assis
tance at hand. A movement on the part
of Mr. Buggies, or a gust of wind, seemed
sufficient to cause the tree to fall. At this
critical moment one of the ladies took off
her basquine and skirt, cut them into strips,
got shawls and other articles of clothing
trom the rest of the party, tied them to
gether, fastened a stone to the rope thus
formed, and let it down to Mr. Buggies,
who, taking hold of it, walked slowly up
the bank. It wa a moment of fearful sus
pense. The rope was held firmly by the
lalie above, but it might untie or break,
and a fall of a hundred feet on the rocks
below must be the inevitable result. When
Mr. Buggies reached terra firma, his fair
rescuer, who had ihown such remarkable
presence of mind, fainted and wa taken
home in an unconscious state.
Records of the War.
The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune, make the following in
teresting statement :
It will be remembered that, until last
winter, every year a number of military
reports were specially ordered to be print
ed by Congress. General McClellan's,
General Bosecrans, and a few other reports,
were thus published at the public expense.
Their publication was not under eompeteat
professional supervision, and hence the
historical value of the books produced is
not at great as it might have been. Dur
ing the last Congress, however, a resolution
was passed putting a stop to the desultory
publications, and authorizing and directing
the Secretary of War to cause to be col
lated and printed in proper form aU tha
papers ana documents oi every aesenpuon.
of any historic character, having been col
lected in hit department from the tall of
1860 to the close of the civil war. This
Congressional mandate will be faithfully
acted upon, and wiU result in due course of
time in the fullest possible military history
of the rebellion. Of course the compila
tion will embody only loyal material.
To carry this undertaking through in a
creditable manner will require the contin
uous labor of a number of compiler for
several yean. The public can form no
idea of tha vastneesoi the material already
piled away, and still pout ing into the War
Department in a steady stream. In a
number ol rooms tne wail are covered
from floor to ceilintr with shelves, cases
and boxes, in which the vast accumulation
re stored away. Of course a large portion
of these records consists of irrelevant mat
ter, not required for the military history.
To separate the "wheat trom the chafl ',
will be a meat tedious, protraoted prt
cess. The magnitude of the task of gettirg;
the essential mattor ready for publicatiou
may be inferred from the fsct that it is the
intention to print every despatch, every
order, every letter, every report, from
Genera commanding down to tha
commanders of the smallest bodies.
Of course it is impossible at this time to
estimate the number of volumes to which
the work will swell. I would not be sur
