THE GRAND RESULT.
Every JforthernState recorded its
Tote on tbe uth jnst for Gen. Grant
by majorities far beyond the! most
sanguine expectations of his friends.
The victory is most decisive, mag
nificent and overwhelming. All the
Southern States except live or six
have proved their fidelity to Grant
by casting their votes for him. The
sound policy which has been adopt
ed by the Administration during
the past four years, have given con
fidence to our people, credit to our
country, and a feeling of security
both at home and abroad. The vic
tory has been most complete. The
great principles of the Republican
party have triumphed gloriously.
JJew York State, the great strong
Tiold, in the North, of, Democracy,
has spoken most emphatically in fa
vor of the present administration.
This is most magnificent, taking in
to consideration the fact that it was
the. home of ilr. Greeley. Pennsyl
yania fires off her one hundred and
forty pounder and startled the
whole nation. It was the voice of
her sons speaking for rights. Vir
ginia, the old Domain, in whose bo
som was the seat of the late Confed
erate government, and whose soil
drank up'the blood of tens of thou
sands of brave, soldiers, cast her
vote for Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, the
man who, crushed out the great re
bellion, by his indomitable will and
We find it quite impossible to out
grow a feeling of calm delight when
ever anything brings to mind the
results of the late election in New
York. Think of it:
Instead of Tammany Hoffman,
the Empire State will now have for
Governor General John A. Dix, a
staunch Republican and a spotless
Instead, of Oakey Hall, an indict

will, have an honest, capable and in
fluential Republican Mayor.
Out ot 'thirty-two members of
Congress New York sends twenty
four, Republicans, six of these be
ing from districts now represented
by Democrats. Sammy Cox,-the' in
-finitesimal "shoo fly" of the House,
is beaten as Congressman at Large
by Lyman Tremain, a staunch Re
publican. Sammy can now retire to

a strong substantial support, which
frill enable them to enforce all .re
forms and cleanse thoroughly the
augean stables of Tammany. New
xork State should hold 'a 'day of
special thanksgiving for her deliv
erance from Satan.
M3j. Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks was
one of those who thought that ,his
name and .influence would be of
huge benefit to the Liberal-Demo
cratic 'movement. He 'went over
with a great blare of trumpets, and
the Tribune saiil.that he would help"
to carry Massachusetts for Greeley.
Trumbull and Schnrz.he"is found to
have had no positive influence, and
his own Congressional District has
refused to have anything to do with
him, and he is as badly beaten at
home as he was by Dick Taylor on
the Red River. It is quite certain
that he will never turn up in poli
tics again, and that, with other de
serters, he will sink into merited ob
CONFIDENCE IN GRANT.
The immense gains in Maryland
Delaware, Virginia,Kentucky, Tenn
essee, and other Southern States
show what confidence the intelligent
and law-abiding South had in Gree
ley Democracy as "the party of
peace and reconciliation." Georgia,
repressing white and black Repub
lican voters by Ku-Klux terrorism,
has been carried for Greeley, and
his vote is that of the lawless irrec
oncilables, not of the Union-loving
and true men who accept the situa
tion.; Tho.large. Southern vote for
Grant gives the first sure promise
of a complete restoration of harmo
ny and good will. The era of
peace and good feeling is at hand.
ici .us coraiany join lianas over a
restored Union and the guarantee of
equal rights to all.
The Republicans of Delaware de.
serve credit for the manfulness and
perservance with which they have
struggled lor the last twelve years.
Defeat after defeat have never daun
ted their fearless hearts, and at last
victory has crowned their efforts,
and the State is redeemed. All
lonor to the gallant spirits of little
Jt is no wonder that Vermont is so
overwhelmingly Republican. The
report of the Secretary of the State
IJoard of Education shows the entire
school population to be 87,000, and
the numbcr of organized school (Us
tricts 2,64.5. The permanent invest
ment in 6chool houses is estimated
at $1,255,387, and the total co9t of
schools for the past year, including

the amount invested in school build
rings, at $030,000.

The greatest fire ever known, in

very heart' of the business portion
of the city, and it will not ceaie un
til it reaches the wharves.
COMMENCEMENT OF THE CONFLAGRATION.
There was hardly a breath of wind
stirring when the alarm was sound
ed, about half-past seven o'clock,
followed by a second, third and
fourth in rapid succession. But the
first engine was hardly on ,the spot
when the fire broke out from the
fourth story of a large granite store
on the corner of Sumner ana King
ston streets; occupied in the first
story by Tebbets, Baldwin fc Davis
wholesale dry goods dealers. It had
caught in the engine room, and the
flames spread with lightning rapid!
tv'tip the large elevator' and were
first seen climbing underneath the
wood '"work of the roof. The en
gines were fairly at work before any
other store had caught. J. lie Duua
ings in the. vicinity were of granite,
four stories high, and each sur
mounted with, Hansard roof,, none
of them being over five years old
Detached splinters flew readily as
the air was heated by the, terrible
heat, and soon the names oegan ncc
iner the Mansard roof on the onno
site side, far above the. reach of the
streams directed upon it from all
quarters'. The fire was constantly
in tlie'air. and one building after
another caught on the roof and the
flames skinned lhjhtly along from
one window to another, so that
IN LESS THAN THIRTY MINUTES
every cheek was as it be
came evident, that the whole city in
one direction, was at the mercy .of
the flames, which were leaping gaily
from roof to roof and from one
building to another. The second
building to siiccum!) was directly op
posite to that in which the fire first
broke out; and was occupied by
Maflln, Mullen & Elms', Harding
Bros, ii Co., Bowen, Jloore fc Co..
George Lide, Carter fc Co.. and Co
nant Bros., all wholesale dealers in
drv and fancy goods. This was at
the corner of Otis place.
IN LESS THAN THIRTY MINUTES THE HEAT NOW BECAME INFERNAL.
The streets ran rivers of water and
every 'moment was' heard the' sound
of J,granite blocks' exploding and
whole frames railing in tne streets.
'making: them impassable'. The fire
men1 were ttrh-en from one-' station
to another, and' many an engine was
kept nobly at' work, while the by
drant was wetdiiwn'by a hand hose,
and- the. engineer could, only keep
his place while & stream of water
was kept playing upon him. Blocks of
granite iveiguing.tons were split as
if by po.wdqr .and. .hurled across'
wide,street8, and, planks went.flying
through the air. as ,if they were

in .the city., built, of t granite, five
stories .in height, with the .cursed

brick and mortar. A hurricanenow
raged, and owing, to .the intense
heat .and perfect sleet- of coals,
drove everything before it. Every
building was now .heated as if in a
furnace, and. caught, like tinder.
Four story granite " blocks seemed
like shavings, and deafening ex
plosions were constantly heard. A
new terror was now added to the
babel of confusion. The tenement
houses at'the upper end of Federal
street were fast being licked up by
the flames, and women crazed and
fainting", were ruining to and fro,
carrying children, crockery, clocks,
and bedding in their hands. One
ran screaming'through High street
with a store funnel in her hands,
while another was lugging a heavy
chest which would have been a
weight lor a strong man. JNpw ana
then a few pieces of goods might be
saved by volunteers,-who ran in and
spent five minutes, during which
they- could work, in bringing-out,
perhaps, a hundred pieces of cloth.
One man, Marshal Cotter, got out
$2u,000 worth of kid gloves and had
them placed on the sidewalk in a
damaged condition. He offered a
hackman $00 in vain, to take the
goods to a place of safety. In less
than an" hour he had to flee for his
ife; and .the flames were not again
cheated of their prey. The fire was
now in Federal street, and the wool
houses were going like oil factories.
They could never have been attack
ed at a more dangerous time; cram
med from cellar to garret, hundreds
of thousands of dollars worth were
on hand that might have been de
vered to customers had it not
been for the horse, disease. In one
store nloric there were $100,000
worth of wool stored, which was
waiting- delivery.- Minor, Beal &
Hackctt had their store packed full,
having only put in the last of their
wiuter's stock three hours before
the fire enveloped all. March Bros
fc Pierce had just p"ut their winter
goods Tri the cellar, and sent their
summer goods up stairs to be made
up. The paper houses came next,
and near the end of Federal street,
went the majority of the large city
dealers. It had been hoped that
the fire could be stopped short of
Franklin street, but the stores there
were as vulnerable as any ot. tne.
others. The Freeman's National
Bank went at .10. o'clock.and. an
hour later the National Bauk of
North America' was' in as bad 'a
condition. The only place where
the limits of the fire were reached is
on Summer street, where the fire
began. It swept in a northeasterly
direction from there and I cannot
tell where it will stop. The loss, of
course, is beyond computation.
There must be an insurance heavy

The lire has reached dimensions
that-.simply defy description, and
thepeople of Boston find themselves
in danger of their lives the. loss of
houses and other property being now
scarcely " thought of. Every street
in the neighborhood of the fire is
thronged by people, all endeavoring
to save a lew valuables, as they turn
towards Treinont and Court streets,
where the fire is supposed to be un
able to reach. But there is no tell
ing where this awful torrent of heat
and flames will stop, as the wind has
already risen to a gale and it seems
to have no positive direction or cur
rent; as the flames increase iu in
tensity and power. The atmosphere
lends additional force to the wind,
which rises, as it were: in our midst,
and goes rolling over the track of
fire, hurling dense showers of fiery
sparks into the air, only to send
them over that portion of the city
still untouched. The rumbling noise
of the torrent ot flame is now and
then relieved by the detonation of
masses of gunpowder, which" have
been placed in untouched edifices in
the apparent track of the fire, and
the awful scene is rendered more
fearful and appalling by the, appear
ance of fragments of these demol
ished houses, as they fly upward in
to the air. The note of preparation
for the worst lias beeu sounded eve
ry where, consequently the aggregate
loss will be greatly lessened by the
prompt removal of all portable
goods. The greatest difficult1, how
ever, is experienced by the merch
ants in procuring the necessary
means of transportation, as the
horses are nearly all ill with the dis
ease, that has so afflicted the larger
cities of the Union. Fabulous pri
ces are being paid for such services
and yet the demand is far greater
than the supply. How will it end?
everyone is askin g.though I hard
ly dare to put the question to ,my
self. It seems to me that if it can
not be conquered now there is no
reason to think that it will until it
reaches the water, in which case it
-will sweep through the dock square,
taking in Fanuel Hall and Quincy
Market, thence continuing its way
toward the shipping at Commercial
and Lewis wharfs, and so on up the
harbor. .1 am sorry to. say that Bos
ton js.no better than other cities for
in the, midst of the terror and con
fusion that .exist, in our streets,
thieves are busy at work, and fre
quent arrests are being made. In
deed, it is difficult to tell .friends
from foes, and many owners are
compelled to see their valuables car
ried off by unknown despcrado'es
withoutventuring to remonstrate or
stop the lawless proceeding. ' The
police do all tbey can to protect
property, but the multitudes prevent
their doing much, and so they con
tent! themselves with makingarrests
whenever possible. Nearly two
hundred men and ho3's have already
been locked up, and also -several
women.! All or these prisoners are
of the lowest class, and come from
the purliens of the city."
