THE SANDWICH ISLANDS.

"THE DEMOCRATIC GAINS."
The average newspaper reade,ac
customed during the past week to
long telegraphic columns of election
returns,each paragraph closing with
an estimation of'Dcmocratic gains"
is probably by this time ready to ad
mit that the recovery ef prestige
and numbers by the Democracy in
this State since last fall has been
something wonderful. It will be
time to analyze the figures and show
how much it all means when the of
ficial returns of all parties from all
the counties are received, but
enough is already known to make
the shouts and whoops of the Plain
Dealer,the World and the Enquirer
seem very puerile and ridiculous.
Whether the Democracy have any
thing to crow over or not depends
on whether they Lave in reality
gained anything, or whether they
have simply lost less votes as com
pared with last year's returns than
the Republicans; in other wards,
whether the result of last Tuesday's
election was the result of twenty-five
or thirty thousand Republicans go
ing over to the Democratic camp, o."
simply the result of a few thousand
more Republicans than Democrats
staying away from the polls. It is
evident, therefore, that what we
need to get at is the total vote. The
full returns are not yet in, but the
Cincinnati Gazette of Saturday takes
up the figures of thirteen counties
from which the returns of all par
ties are received, and makes there
from a remarkably clear and consis
tent showing. The counties consid
ered are Stark, Clinton, Butler, Mia
mi, Wayne, Warren, Brown, Dela
wareMorrow, Logan, Franklin,Har
din and Seneca. In all of these the
Democracy has made what it calls
"gains" since last year. After giv
ing in detail the vote in each of the
thirteen counties for 1872 and 1873
the Gazette adds np as follows:
Total Republican vote 42,296 34,778
Total Democratic vote 42,235 37,159
Grand total 84,431 71987
Kconbuoan majority, 10T3 m
Republican loss, 1873 7,518
Republican loss per cent 17
Democratic loss, 1873 5,076
Democratic loss per cent 12
Excess of Republican loss 2,442
In a word, the Democrats, so far
from gaining anything, have lost
twelve per cent of their last years
vote. Mr. Allen gets 5,000 less votes
in these thirteen counties than Mr
Wiley ,the Democratic candidate for
Secretary of State, got in the same
counties last year. The simple fact
is, that 5 per cent more Republi
cans than Democrats were indiffer
ent or pre occupied by the panio or
for other reason stayed away from
the polls. We shall be greatly sur
prised, if the entire State, when tne
returns are in, does not show a cor
responding result. This does not
make the deleat any less disgrace
ful for the Repnblicans; it simply
shows that the Democracy, who are
hailiag the election of Allen as a ti
dal wave and the beginning of a
groat political revolution which will
sweep Thurman or Hendricks into
the Presidency in 1875,ar counting
chickens a long time before they are
hatched. Cleveland Leader.
- So close have been the figures of
the late election, that it has been dif
ficult to arrive at the true result.
One thing is certain, every body was
taken by surprise, both Democrats
and Republicans, when it was an
nounced that Allen was probably
elected. As the returns came in
slowly and the count was close, the
anxiety was great. Although the
official returns are not all in yet,
enough is known to assure the elec
tion of Allen for go-ernor" The
rest of the State ticket is Republi
can by a majority of from four ' to
eight hundred. The Legislature is
Democratic by a majority of fifteen
on joint ballot. We trust the Re
publicans have learned a lesson that
they will remember a short lime at
least. The Democrats are entitled
to clear out their cobwebbed throats
with a shout over their unexpected
success, and there is not the slight
est fear that they will not shout loud
enough. We hope they will yell so
loud aa to awaken Republicans to a
sense of their folly in staying away
from the polls through overconfi-
THE RESULT IN OHIO.
In one respect the result in Ohio
will do great good. It has shown
that the same old spirit of Copper-
headjsm is, after all' the strongest
element of Democracy. In spite of
last year's professions of "liberal
ism," which many Republicans at
the time were inclined to regard as
sincere, in spite of professions of
readiness to disband, and to take
up new issues, made this year in
quarters where the farmers or other
local movements have given oppor
tunity for such tactics, the fact
stands out in bold relcif that una
dulterated, unreconstructed, unre
pentant unblushing Copperhead
ism rallies more Democratic votes
than any other position which that
party can take. This is bacause
that element is far stronger and
more positive in the Democratic
party than any other. It is the back
bone and the life of it, and does
not vanish as some over-hopeful
political counselors believed. It is
precisely that element with which
we have to deal in Missouri, though
under very different circumstances.
Just the same spirit which makes
Bourbonism the master in the Dem
ocracy of Ohio gives rebelism the
control of the Democracy of Mo.,
and will drive into hostility to that
party every man who can lookback
upon a loyal record, or who retains
any touch of affection for the Union
cause St. Lovit Glrbe.

YELLOW FEVER—HOW IT WORKS UPON
The type of this disease varies
from year, and every great epidemic
has traits of its own, but the main
features are the same, and an exper
ienced and competent physician in
fallibly recognizes these in twenty-
four hours. True, is it impossible
for the most skillful to distinguish
between these symptoms and those
of the Dengus, or "broken-bone fe
ver," for the first night and day.
A man in the enjoyment of uncom
mon health and strength (for the
delusive disease seems to delight in
snarinz its victims unawares, to
make the sacrifice fat for its dark al
ter) finds a rigor or slight chill
creeping over him,followed by pains
in the head and back, and fever,
which rises rapidly. The pains be
come violent, excruciating, and the
pulse ranges from 108 to 120. The
tongue is not coated or furred, but
assumes a reel, glassy appearance,
and often swells to far beyond its
natural size; the gums begin to en
large, and a black deposit settles on
the teeth. The secretions of the
body are deranged, and often the
bladder becomes dry as a powder-
horn, for the kidneys fail to perform
their functions. Woe to the patient
when such is' the case, for the urin
ary acid is almost sure to be carried
to the brain, producing the wildest
delirium, and if not quickly reliev
ed, issuing in speedy and terrible
death. The stomach is disordered,
and often there is a disposition to
retch; the nerves become preternatu
rally excited, and the restlessness is
indescribable, while the eyes are
painfully sensitive to light and the
ears to sound. In some case3 the
lips, the whole face, grow red
crimson. Usually the full, corded
pulse throbs with sledge-like strok
the other symptoms unabated for
seventy two hours, when the fever
declines the pulse still remaining
quick, but, like the trembling vibra
tion of a thread. By this time the
patient is so reduced that he can
scarcely lift his head,ae-iadeed raise
an eyelid. This is the critical per
iod, and, in fact, forward from this
time until absolute, not apparent,
convalescence takes place.
Yellow fever is sometimes thought
to be a high type of the bi!ious,but
there could be no greater mistake,
tor countless auspices have shown
the liver to be in good condition ;in
deed, l nave not Heard or a case
where it was seriously implicated.
The disease is tut generis, having
little or no kinship with other mal
arious affections, and is distinctly
posion or the blood into the gums,
eyes, ears, stomach; for in some se
vere cases blood is thrown out from
every opening of the body. It is of
ten forced in large quantities into
the stomach,and when this is thrown
off the black vomit occurs.
The approaching close of another
year brmg with it the occasion for

A FUNNY TYPOGRAPHICAL ERROR.
Perhaps the funniest tvpo-rrapbi
cal error of modern times occurred
in a recent issue of the Danbury
Jews. vv bat are we to think of an
evangelical alliance such as is here
described? "A band of three hund
red 'clergymen' are on the frontier,
and after a successful raid they will
retreat to their reservation, carrying
their scalps and plunder with them
to enjoy, under the protection of
a government post,a feast and a war
dance.for which the pioneer citizens
of Colorado furnish both scalps and
food. Comment on such a state of
affairs is nseless."(One would think
bo.) "No words can do he subject
justice." Scarcely. But it 13 fair
to persume that if the word "Chey-
ennes" had been substituted for the
word "clergymen" in the first line
of the above, the purposes of the au-

HORRIBLE AFFAIR—DEATH FROM
SUFFOCATION AND AMPUTATION.
One of the most horrible occur
rences that we have been called up
on to chronicle took place on Thurs
day afternoon, 27th nit, sight miles
north of Knob Xoster, Johnston
Countv. For the particulars we
are indebted to W. u.
chant of that town.
On the day above mentioned a
party of farmers from the county ad
jacent wer attending James Foster's
machine,engaged in threshing wheat
on Mr. Albaugh's farm, the scene
of the horrible occurence. During
the afternoon, while busily thresh
ing, a small wheel became broken,
the excessive friction produced
therefrom quickly igniting the dry
wheat straw and chaff, with which
the machine was surrounded. A
stiff breeze was blowing at the tine
threatening a spread of flame to a
large rick of wheat adjoining. Con
templating at once the desperate
emergency, one of the employes, Mr.
Arnold, mounted the front part of
the thresher and attempted to smoth
er out the flames. In steping on
the feed-board one foot slipped, hU
les entered the machine about half
to his ankle,' where, horrible to re
late, it became firmly caught! Vain
weie the efforts to release the poor
man from his terrible situation.
The machine was run slowly back,
but effected nothing. No time was
to be hst. - The flames were gradu-
ally increasing. Unless removed he
would be burned alive. A desper
ate remedy was then proposed the
last and only hope. A stout man,
with a common chopping ax, then
