Next to the Gubernatorial contest, the qaes-1
tlon which has ex cl ed the most Interest
throughout the Stete has been that of the
Congressional contest in the fourth district be?
tween the Hon. B. F. Perry, Conservative, and
A. 8. Wallace, the present Badlcal incumbent,
* and tba following table has been prepared to
show ni condensed lorm bow the battle bas
been waged In that district. It will be seen
that the actual victory has not been won, bnt
there ls enough in these figures to prove that
a gallant fight bas been made In most of the ,
coantles, and that no candidate of the Radical j
party can hereafter count on carrying the dis?
trict It ls very probable that the figures |
given below may be somewhat modified by
later retoma, but the general result can hardly
be changed unless, as ls not improbable, lt
should be found that Wallace owes the small
majority that he now appears to have gained
to the same reckless rascality that the Radi?

Tomllnson bas received only about 250
votes for Governor out of the 2300 or 2400
votes polled. The Regular Radical county
and legislative candidates averaged 2000 ma?
jority. Moses, for Governor, and Melton lor
attorney-g?n?ral, ran somewhat ahead ol
their ticket. A full colored vote was polled,
solid for the Regulars, but only about one
fourth of the whites voted. The latter did
not vote for State officers, and the mixed
county ticket nominated by the whites waa
put ont too late for general support.

GEORGETOWN C. H., Oc'.ober 18.
The regular Radical State ticket has carried
Georgetown by 1782 majority, and the Regu?
lar county and legislative candidates axe
elected by an average majority of 1000. Bal
ney and Cain each received a majority of
about 1800 for Congress. There were but 72
white votes cast in the whole county, and
they were about equally divided between
blanks tor State offices and the Tomllnson
ticket. Taere were only 1866 votes polled al?
together, against 2883 m 1870. The returns
of the vote upon the constitutional amend?
ments are not all In, but it ls estimated
that the amendment to change the day
of election, known as the sixteenth ar?
ticle, was generally voted against by the
colored persons. All the tickets sent
from Columbia (8,000) were printed "No" to
both amendments. W. H. Jones, Jr., the
black senator elect, in a speech last Saturday
advised the colored men to vote against the -
sixteenth article. For the Senate W. H.
Jones, Jr., was elected without opposition.
For the House of Representatives Charles
Green, James A. Bowley and Charles H.
Sperry are elected by about 1000 majority
over Daniel J. Wilson and James Hughes, In?
dependent candidates. The Regular Radical
county officers were elected without opposi?
tion. They are : C. I. Coe, clerk of oourl; S.
R. Carr, sheriff; R. O. Bush, probate Judge;
Sherod Johnson, coroner, and R O. Bush, J.

The battle ls fought, the victory won, and
the whole Democratic ticket elected by a
handsome majority. This majority will aver?
age 400, and in some cases the majority was
800. The question ls now settled as to this
county, and there will be no further trouble.
The next election will give 1000 maj orlty. The
Republicans did their best. Governor Perry's
majority for Congress was 461; Donaldson's lor
Senate was 408, and .so on. A leader ot the
Republicans, a colored man, was heard
to say he would never again vote against
the white people. Tomllnsoa's majority
In this county was about 700; the Demo?

lina lt Is my most grateful duty to announce
that you have achieved a brilliant victory In
the election of the entire Republican Slate
ticket by the splendid mnjorliy of more than
thirty thousand votes. Tout victory was won
over a combination of treacherous friends and
tu? open and Implacable foes of free govern?
ment sustained by large wealth and official
patronage. Against tnese fearful agencies
you had nothing to oppose but your lo vinci-1
ble devotion io principle and unpurcha6abie
votes. The campaign through which we have
Just passed will be forever memorable from
Bought, by every device that malice and mean?
ness could suggest, to blacken our chosen
leaders with undeserved obloquy. From their
unjust Judgment we appealed to the people.
You heard our cause, face lo luce, and your
approving verdict is before the country. Tno.-o
wno, aller having long been fostered and
clothed wilta honor by the Republican r arty,
sought to stab it In the hour ot its great trial,
have received your signal condemnation.
They will henceforth furnish a negative
example to all untimely aspirants for pub?
lic office, and admonish Republican leaders
that their only Batety lies in following the
standard ot their party wherever it may lead.
Our triumph, feiiow Republicans, will be Util?
ized in the interest of peace and orderj and
good government. The platform that we pro?
mulgated In the canvass will s'and neiore the
public officers of our coolee as your authori?
tative Interpretation of their official duties,
and they will remember that while, as candi?
dates, they represented the Republican party,
as public officers they represent the whole
people ot South Carolina.
But, fellow Republicans we must advance
to another and still greater victory. We
must rally once again to bear to an over?
whelming triumph our great leaders, Ulysses [
j S. Grant and Henry Wilson, who carry the
standard of the Republican party. The election
lor a President and vice-President ot the
United States will lake place on Tuesday, the
6th of November. Let every Republican be
at the polls on mat aay and cast als vote for
ibese two men, who, In war and in peace,
have Illustrated and maintained the principle
whose successful assertion has redeemed lrom
vassallage the working men of two races
within the borders of .South Carolina, and
made the American nation a land dedicated
to universal liberty, where man calls none
master but his God. Republicans, remember
the 6th of November, and on that day let
none be absent from the roll-call. Sincerely
and gratefully your humbie fellow-citizen,

A SHOCKING ACCIDENT.
Fall of the Rafters of a New Building
Seven Men Injured.
[Prom tbe Angus.a Cnronlcle |
A short time since the construction of a new
building was commenced on Broad street, op?
posite Mr. Conway's sale and livery stables.
Tue brick walls on eitber side soon reached
the height determined upon, and Ihe f-leepera
were placed In position Yesterday the work
of raising the rafters was begun. Those at
the end of ihe building nearest Reynolds
street were first put up, und at ubout 2 o'clock
llireeof the "prloclpau>" -so called In building
phraseology-had been placed In position, and
work was progressing ou. a fourth. The tn ree
already up were fastened, together by a "stay,"
which kept them from falling until ihe regular
supports were attached. During ihe absence
oi the contractors one ot the workmen-of
whom there were ten or twelve upon the
walls at tue lime-knocked the "stay" loose
from one of the rafters, In order to tlx some
portion of the timbers, and afterwards neg?
lected to nail lt back. This, as a matter of
course, left the rafter unsupported, and while
the men were busy about their work, lt ?fell
carrying with lt io the ground-a distance ol
about twenty feet-the other rafters and seve?
ral of the sleepers. Seven of the workmen
were precipitated to the eartn with the fall?

As soon as possible thc men were extricated

Of ine white men, Peter McGraaf was hurt
tn one side and hip, besides being bruised in
other places. Tnos. Vaughan and S. Radford
were slightly bruised, lt was at nrst thought
that Mat. Costello's spine was injured, but In?
vestigation developed the fact that such waa
not the case, and that his back was only a lit?

hurt about the head and thigh. H;s injuries,
though painful, are not ut all serious. Jamea

Afra. Greeley Dying - The Jimmy
O'Brien Campaign for the Mayoral?
ty-Some Incidents In the Career of a
Ilrformtr-How to Get Stokes Clear
The Entertainment to froud:-Re?
turn of ?pera Bouffe.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRBf FONDENT.]
Nnw YORK, October 16.
There Ie a great deal o? interest and anima?
tion in local politics; very little lo national
po.ltlcs. The excitement pertaining to the
latter seems to have culminated with the
Pennsylvania election. Since lhat event
there have been lewer meetings In this city
and really less talk about the Presidential
question than before. I And that people who
were Indifferent or on the fence then are very
generally disposed to concede the re-election
of Grant, and so dismiss the matter from their
minds. On the other hand, the warm parti?
sans ot Greeley are Jost as sanguine of his
election as ever, and contend that the triumph
ol the Radicals In Pennsylvania by fraud has
actually helped the Liberal prospects.
Hr. Greeley was about to start for the West
again this week and make speeches, begin?
ning at Chicago, but the Increasing Illness of
hie wile has prevented his departure. I learn
that Mrs. Greeley ls on her deatb-bed, and
that her husband doubts li she will last the
month out He ls at Cbappaqua again to?
day, and ?viii, of course, refrain from public
speaking, unless his wife's condition changes.
A new danger confronts the taxpayers of
the cliy. A few weeks ago the election ol
"Jimmy" O'Brien as mayor of New York
seemed an Impossibility. But the situation
bas since altered. The Republicans who favor
reform refuse te unite with the reform Demo?
crats on a candidate, and will run Mr. Have
meyer. The Tammany Democrats and Liberal
Republicans have already nominated Abraham
B. Lawrence. The apollo Hall faction have
lormally nominated O'Brien. Thus-there are
three candidates in the field, and lt ls feared
tbat O'Brien may prove the strongest, as bo
has not only the solid support ot the slums,
bnt the secret assistance of the customhouse.
Of course lt ls expected that be will manipu?
late the vote In his old style, and the probable
amount of fraud In his Interest ls therefore to
be taken Into consideration.
"Jimmy" has dashed Into the business of
electing himself mayor with great vigor. He
goes lrom ward to ward every night making
speeches, relying the boy A and treating them
en masse, In the nearest bar-rooms. He has
a pleasant, cheery off-band manner, which is
calculated to make him personal friends
among the rough classes. I do not know that
I ever described -'Jimmy" for you. He has a
good deal of natural shrewdness, but he is un?
educated, and it ls said can hardly write his
name. I met him one day on Chatham Btreet, ?
just as be was leaping from the door of a pub?
lic hack. Two retainers, of the conventional
plug-ugly cut, were at his heels. "Jimmy"
crossed the sidewalk to the steps of a house,
when he i urned and exclaimed, "S-a-a-y
Jackey, tell them fellows to meet me at Flynn's
to-night." This ls all I heard the distinguish?
ed "Reformer" utter, and I cannot say lt im?
pressed me thoroughly lo hlslavor. He ls
a rather good-looking young man, with
marked Hibernian features, and has a thick?
set frame of about the medium size. His
career since boyhood was like that ot most ot
the ruffian young men ol this city. He
was in prlBon at one lime for Borne
misdemeanor. He bas been concerned In
numberless rows and fights. He obtained
great influence over his class In the lower
wards, and Tweed's Tammany recognized his
influence by making him sheriff-a place worth
one hundred thousand dollars a year. "Jlm
.my" ran agalEst Michael Connolly, known as
the "bigjudge." Con dollypot the moat yfi\ffl?
say beTs very g?nerons; spending his large
Income Ireely among the boys, and helping
the distressed wherever he Ands them. He
fixed up a claim of two hundred thousand
dollars lor extra services as sheriff when - he
was In office. Undoubtedly, the claim was
fraudulent For some reason the ring refused
to pass upon ' lt favorably; and O'Brien, in
revenge, peached on them to the New York
Times, and the great exposure which de?
stroyed the "Boss" followed. O'Brien then
came out In trie new role of reformer, and
counted himself In as State senator lrom one
of the city districts. This ls the personage
who now stands a very good chance to become*
cnlef magistrate of the proud metropolis of
the Western Continent With Hartnett In the
Gubernatorial chair of Pennsylvania, Grant
re-established in power at Washington and
Jlmmv O'Brien disporting himself as mayor of
New York the depth of our political degrada?
tion will bave been reached. Doubtless there
will be people who will declare that the re?
publican experiment ls a failure.
O'Brien's latest freak 1B the display ot a
rather Indiscreet sympathy tor a ruffian friend
who ls in the Toomba for murdering a woman.
The fellow, Dempsey by name, a clerk to the
board ol aldermen, beat a woman over the
head with an Iron plano stool at a disreputa?
ble bouse In East Thirteenth street on Thurs?
day night. He fractured her skull and fled,
but was caught by tbe police To-day she was
dying In the hospital. The Tribune charges
that O'Brien endeavored to bribe the attend?
ing physician to give a certificate that the
gin's Injuries were not dangerous, aod that
there was an accommodating justice who was
ready to strain a point and let Dempsey off on
ball. Promises and threats, however, did not
Induce the physician to perjure himself, and
Jimmy ls ny lng about town devising other
means to get his friend released. It is boasted
in his favor that he "sticks" to bis friends.
One of the "thinnest" things of the season,
to use the current phrase, Ie the new evidence
Introduced by Stokes's counsel to show that
that "unfortunate young mau" aoted purely in
self-defence in shooting Fisk. One Augustus
St. Clair, who says he ls a reporter, has come
forward and made affidavit that he saw the
rencontre between Fisk and Stokes, and that
the former had a pistol. He did. not see the
actual shooting, but heard two simultaneous
shots, and believes that Fisk fired one of them.
He mentioned the circumstance privately to
his friends, but was afraid to.appear us a wit?
ness, as his life-was threatened by the friends
of Fisk. Mr. St. Clair's story bears the strong?
est evidence of having been manufactured;
but as there Is a gradually weakening feeling
In the community towards Stokes, lt is proba?
ble that the self-delence theory supplemented
with St. Clair will be accepted, and the mur?
derer will be permitted to return lo Wall
street and the brokerage business. .
Mr. Froude was the recipient of additional
attractions this week. He was entertained
by the Lotus Ciub one night, and last evening
he was present at a banquet given In his
honor at Deltnonlco's by his publishers.
George William Curtis presided, and among
Hie guests were Emerson, Beecher, Bryant,
Chap?n, Bellows, Hurlburt, abd many other
literary celebrities. The speeches were good;
tnose of Curtis and Bryant particularly se.
Mr. Froude spoke for some minutes, going
over the ground ol the controversy between
England and Ireland, which will be the sub?
ject ol' his lectures in this country. He gave
as a reason lor coming here that he wanted to
induce the American people to use. their
Influence with ibe Irish, and ascertain If pos?
sible what England could do to beal the
breach. He said England would gladly listen
to any suggestions from Americans, who are
known to oe the friends of both nations. One
