The Presidential boom which teemed
a abort time ago to be settling mbont
equally in favor of Grant, Blaine and
Sherman, with the chances somewhat
in favor of the former, appears just now
to give either of the latter the prefier
ence. It la difficult to aay just what
Grant's chances will be, if he has any4at
all. The objections entertained against
a third term, together with the prejudi
ces, with or without reason, existing
against his administration are a serious
objection against entering him for the
race, though personally weuld
hare no objections to him for either of
those ' reason. Our prefeieacc
is, however, for Blaine. He la
been our choice for five years. We
thought he ought to haye been the can
didate at the last Presidential election.
and we hare not yet seen reason to
change our opinion. His natural abil
ity, his experience, his judgment, his
Independence and force of charactei
eminently fit him for that position, and
we hope to have the privilege of Toting
for him for next President of the Uni
ted States. With him in the chair we
should have no softness or sentimental
Ism or temporizing. He would give u
a wise and able administration. The
South would be treated with fairness snd
Justice, which last it has for many years
failed to receive. Knowing his temper
and firmness, much of the lawlessness
which now exists would cease.
We are not in favor of tyrrany or des
potism, but there is an element in soci
ety that respects nothing so much as
physical force, snd we would make the
uncivilized, unregenerate portion . of
rebeldom feel the strong arm of the law
until they manifested a disposition to
return to peaceable citizenship.
The Hear Iiook and the Far.
The close of the old jesr and the be
ginning of the new, suggests a review of
tbe principal events ot the past, and a

hope and confidence to that which lies
The prominent thought is of any

But whatever changes have come to
us or our kindred that will make us re
member with vivid clearness the year
that is dead, we can all thank God and
take courage in the far look, beyond the
little horizon of home and family and
kindred, a review of the events that be
token a continuation of the prosperous
times that have set in, and great cause
for gratitude in the mercies of the year.
Since the financial depression of 1873,
the agricultural statistics show a steady
increase in the 'production of cereals,
always a safe venture and a specific rem
edy for hard times, until it is now thirty
three per cent, greater than in 1874.
There is no danger of over-doing the
business of producing ood for the

and not the prices quoted in the mar
ket. It is estimated that the increased
value of the real estate ' and mining
property ef the United States will not
fall below 11,000,000,000 over what it
was a year ago. Of course it would
take some figuring to cipher out how
much more each man's acre is worth to
day than it was on January 1st, 1879,

The Maine Steal.
Just now the absorbing topic of the
country is the "Maine steal." That a
party that has been shouting fraud and
corruption with such unparalled vehe
mence and persistency should resort to
the same measures they have condemned,
though open to the charge of Inconsist
ency, will surprise no one who is famil
iar with its history previous to, during
and ever since the war.
Apologizing for and defending slavery,
ympathislng with and aiding the rebel
lion, opposing every measure undertaken
to make permanent the results for which
the war was fought, robbing the blacks
of the political and civil rights guaran
teed to them by the most outrageous and
inhuman methods known to civilization ;
endeavoring to secure the presidency by
stealing and purchasing electoral votes,
and finally attempting to secure by legis
lation all that they lost by the war and
avowing a determination not to cease
their efforts till this result was accom
plished, give such sn Insight into the
true inwardness of their character and
motives 'that one ought not to te sur
prised at any thing however base and
mean. There can be no question, how
ever, that all uch dishonesty will recoil
upon their own heads, that their strength
will diminish from jear to year while the
party of progress, of civil equality of all
men before the law, the party of justice
and humanity, will aa certainly grow in
numbers snd strength as that the world
continues to exist.
It ia nt worth while to become dis
heartened by such exhibitions of wick
edness and temporary reverses. We re
member the slave power thought it had
secured Kansas for a slave state, it
thought it had made the success of se
cession a certainty, the Democracy
thought that by fraud and bribery they
had provided for a Democratic Presi
dent, and then when, by the shot-gun
and murder they had made a solid South,
that they had secured the means by
which they could undo the results of the
war, but in every instance though victo
ry was apparently within their grasp,
they have met with signal defeat. We
will not be disheartened now. This
move made with a view to securing the
next presidential election is sure to stim
ulate Republicans to renewed activity.
ai l aa in the last fall election we shall
win a glorious victory.
If, as is suspected, the Intention is to
get control of the legislature so as to
cast the electoral vote by it, instead of
allowing the people to chc-ose them by
ballet as has many years been practiced,
Republicans may take warning in time
to arrange for catting the electoral vote
of New York in the same manner, and
further the Republicans having the leg
islature of ever doubtfulKorthern Slate
they can make the presidential vote of
the North so solid that the Democratic
candidate will not stand a ghost of a
chance of getting inside of the White
House. We advise no crookedness or
dishonesty, but the plan of casting the
electoral vote by the legislature having
been frequently practiced and there be
ing no constitutional objection to it, we
would recommend to beat them by the
game they have themselves inaugurated.
We make no distinction between the
Democratic party, North or South, for
the Northern wing have, as a party, nev
er shown any unwillingness to profit by
the crimes of the South They either
pretend to disbelieve In them or ignore
them, and in every case fail to condemn
them. The methods of the two sections
are somewhat unlike, but equally con
ceived in sin, for while one resorts to
force snd violence, the other seeks to
accomplish its ends by bribery and cor
ruption. - These re not very comforting
reflections for the contemplation of the
Democracy, but nevertheless as true as
Gospel, and the force of them cannot be
turned aside by saying "you're another.
OUR NEW YORK LETTER
CHRISTMAS IK OOTHAaf ELKCTBIC XD-
18 ON 1KD THK RABBIT HUXTZ&S.
Nkw York, Drc. 36th, 1879.
Santa Claus had a pretty rough time
traveling this Christmas. Four days
of the meanest weather, in spite of the
noble - exertions of ex-clubber street
cleaning Capt. - William, so covered
the city with slush that the reindeer
got tired, the famous sleigh got mired,
and having to avail himself of the ser
vices of New York hackmen, their
charges were so high that the old
Saint's money gave out. In sober fact,
business though so brisk for some weeks
when eople with cash took time by
the forelock, simmered down when the
disgusting warm storm came on and
many people put oil their purchases to
the last minute. Then the weather
might be as mean as it liked, they
were bound to complete their purchas
es, but they didn't nor half. The
crush in the stores was terrific and if any
one got just a quarter of what he aet
out to buy be might consider himself
lucky. Broadway was jammed from
early morning till late at night, in a
way that threatens to become historic,
hats were smashed, clothing rulned.and
all the world and his wife will long
have reason to remember this rainy
Christmas. One thing about It is that
Santa Claus, with many families, is
likely to put In a second appearance.
Toys and holiday present generally
are marked clown all over, and the gen
erous prtron of the babies feels partic
ularly good In these promising times.
Not even In the war was there ever
seen such a rush of business among re
tail merchants as during the past few
weeks, and expensive presents were the
rule, people Seeming to pay off arrears
bred of prudence enforced during the
dismal time since the panic. The jew
elers are radiant as they . reckon their
profits, and other purveyors of esthetic
gifts, from artistic candy In the most
original Imported caskets to cashmere
shawls, and exquisite silks, have
shared the bounteous harvest. The rain
will no doubt aid in Introducing the
French custom of New Year's gifts as
supplementary to the kindly remem
brances of Christmastide.
Electricians are greatly excited over
the announced Intention of Edison to
light Menlo Park, N. J., on New
Yeai's Ere, and show the doubting
Thomases how he csn furuUh cheap and
safe illumination for the million. It Is
wonderful how many scientific per
sons have taken to hunting for rabbits
around Menlo Park of late. The gen
eral public is scarcely so much Interest
ed as one would expect, the subject
having been so much before them that
it has keen worn some-whst thread
bare. We shall see what we shall see

to be almost bursting with big secrets.
When tbey burst I'll let you know
their true Inwardness promptly.

Eltria, Dec, 23, 1879.
The past week has been a very busy
time with our merchants.
Mrs. Scott Siddons gives a reading at
the Opera House, Wednesday night,
Uncle Tom's Cabin on Tuesday evening,
and a temperance lecture on Saturday
evening, by E. Joy Pomeroy, of the
Ohio Grand Lodge I. O. G. T. The re

The Elyria Council, Royal Arcanum,
went to Cleveland last Tuesday evening
to be present at the dedication of
new hall of the same order in that city,
Laat Saturday evening Mr. John
Burns of this place, while going home
on the railroad tract:, was struct: oy a
car and instantly killed. He was walk
ing on the side track in company with
Mr. Howels, when a car from the local
was switched on to them. Mr. Howels
narrowly escaped with his life. About
three years ago Mr. Burns lost his leg
on the road, nearly at the same place.
No blame is attached to any one but the
deceased. He wss a workmji in the
company's blacksmith shop, and left a
wife and four children.
The "Patterson scandal" is still the
subject of conversation on our streets.
The action of the authorities in hushing
the matter up, is receiving a good deal
of just Centura in many localities. The
people do not understand why a man
who has held a position of trust and
confidence, and betrayed it, should be
any more exempt from the penalties of
the law, than the man who his no fami
ly, social or official ties. The course
that Mr. Patterson has pursued is just
as censurable and just as liable to crim
inal prosecution aa is that of the colored
man Lane, who now lies in jail awaiting
trial for criminal Intercourse with the
woman Stanton. It Is reported that
Patterson now lays in a very dangerous
condition at the house of his son in
Chicago, which has been brought upon
him by remorse for his pastindiscre
The corruption that has been un
earthed here during the past three
weeks Is most shameful, not only among
the lower c'.asses, but also among the
classes of professed respectability and
Christian piety. The deeds of the past
few weeks are revolting in the extreme.
Much sympathy Is extended to the
church with which these parties are con
nected, while no blame is attributed to
it, except by a few who are unable by
their depravity to see any good in it.

prosperity. A. W. N.
