Tho defeat of tho'Greeleyized Democra
cy on Tuesday seems now to be a perfect
"Waterloo. There is no comfort for them
oven in the paradisoof Indiana Democracy
the district of Voorhees. The Tall Syca
more of the "Wabash is shelved.
The cry of fraud.'.fraud, will.'not set aside
such an overwhelming victory as we have
gained in Pennsylvania, for the triumph is
not only in Philadelphia, where frauds are
complained of, but all over the State.
The victory may bolbriefiy summed up
as follows :
Hartranft carries.. Pennsylvania by thirty-five
thousand majority, and we gain
nine members of Congress. Ohio goes
Republican by about eighteen thou
sand majority, with probably the
loss of one Congressman. Indiana
elects Hendricks, the greni'cliampion of
Democracy, by only flvo hundred major
ity. Voorhees and Mansou lose their seats
in Congress, giving way to Hunter and
Cason, good, sound Republicans. Wo gain
four Congressmen in the State.
This is glory enough' for one day and
good cause for rejoicings.

Tho.w York correspondent of the Cin
cinnati 'dazcilc, on the 0th said :
The TaiHiBuy managers held a secret
meeting to-nlj't. It Is understood that
thev decided to confeiitrate all their efforts
on the- State and local tJections, and leave
tho Presidential question i? caro for itself.
The probabllty is that many or me Gree
ley speakers now in the Held will bC with
drawn, aud great economy shown in the
management of tho rest of tho canvass.
Many Democrats are hedging their bets on
the State of New York, and evidently fear
Kernan's defeat. Bets that Dix will bo
iho next Governor are freely offered, with
out takers. The larco majority in Fenn-
sylvania.is eyidently decisive ot the fate of
New York, which is. now considered sure

Several clubs heretofore for Greeley aud
Brown will hold meetings between now

for Grant, une ciuo in tne iMgiueentu
and another In the Twentieth Ward chang
ed their colors to-night, and their mem
bers predict that many others will follow
their example. Tho headquarters of the
Liberals and Democrats resemble underta
kers' shops, with light patronage, but
there has been great rejoicing at the Re
publican headquarters, ureeiey men, gen
erally, irive mi tho coiftest. and say there
is no use. of making further eii'ort, except

Its Washington correspondent Fays:
Tho Greeley men here, without excep

TlilcrH TronblFN in Trimcc,
Pahis, Oct. 11. Tho Permanent Com
mission oftho Assembly to-day', held an
important meeting, at which President
Thiers was present. Matters were discussed
on which there was considerable conlllct
of opinion. Gambetta's political tour and
speeches in the provinces and'assaults re
cently made on tho pilgrims who continue
to ilock to witness the miracle of the Vir
gin wore regarded by some of tho members
as likely to lead to trouble. President
Thiers expressed indignation at the out
rageous treatment of the pilgrims, which
lie regarded as an attack on Catholic re
ligion and tho national form of worship.
Ho warmly condemned the course of M.
Gambctta, who, lie said, was trying to di
vide tho nation and render tho position of
tho government abroad more difficult.
Tillers, who seemed to be Induced to break
with tho left, still clung to tho Republic,
and his positive declarations in favor of
government were received with laughter
by tho Monarchist oftho Commission.
The report that Prince Napoleon intend
ed to return to Franco and possibly resume
his residence in Paris was also considered.
President Thiers informed tho Commis
sion that he had expressed his disapproval
of such steps and had taken measures to
prevent tho Princo from carrying his in
tention into ctiect.
Loxnox, Oct. 11. Additional military
and constabulary forces havo been or
dered tothe Sysburn Island. Anti-Catholic
disturbancs are threatened there.
Prince Napoleon has received official
notice from the French government that
he will not be permitted to visit Franch or
take up his residence on Frencesoil.as has
been reported he intended to do.
Maria Thornton, a clored woman, was
arrested on Sunday morning on the charge
of maliciously shooting.at a white man by
tho name ot Jones. Sho was kapt in tho
calabooso until Monday morning, when
sho was brought before Esquire Jourol
mon, stood a trial, and was acquitted. Tho
evidence went to prove that tho man at
tempted to make a hasty retreat with some
washing" she had done for him without
paying her for It, when she tool: the pis
tol", and not being her own, had no idea of
its being loaded, and used It only to fright
en tho man Into paying her for her work,
when the pistol was accidentally discharg
ed, the load going in another dlrectlou
from tho prosecuting party. The evidence
cleared her of any intention of shooting
the party, and she was discharged.
It Is truly touching to seo the philosoph
ical mood the October elections havo left
theGreeley organs In. Here is Watterson.of
the Courkr-Joimutl, who sighs and says :
"Tho country will now havo nn opportunity
pf seeing of what stull'tlio Liberals aro mado of j

Tho editors of somo of tho Greeley or

think It tries their pockets.

I arrived hero this morning and finding
every hotel full, was forced to spend tho
four hours Intervening before breakfast In
a chair, which attitude, as Is well known,
Is not tho most conducivo to slumber.
After breakfast .at tho Delano House,
your correspondent proceeded to tho Fair
grounds, situated about duo milo from
town, which wo found a scene of busy lifo,
with hundreds of men, women and chil
dren dresed in holiday attire, who camo
to see the fair through, while doubtless
many a blushing fancy was attracted by
tho. thought that her presence would in
spire confidence and nerve tho heart and
arm of some gallant knight In the tour
ney ; or perchance to witness tho principal
race advertised to take place.
"Aneroid," the noted racer oftho Nash
ville turf arrived tho day before, carried oil'
a premium, and was expected to take part
in the race to-day, but during tho night ho
was poisoned by somo hired miscreant.
and, of course, failed to come to time,
much to tho disappointment of the
crowd in attendance, who wished to wit
ness a contest between ulooileu stoclr. On
tho other hand, there aro some who be
lieve that Aneroid was not poisoned ntall,
but was founded. This matter pro and con
was tho principal topic of conversation
during the day.
