The "Tidal Wave Rolls On."
Xi.w York, Nov. 0. The IlcrakVs clec
lion estimates give to Grant 2S States ami
o Greeley S, or CS electoral votes for
drnnt to 90 for Greeley. The popular ma
jority for Grant is placed at 350,000. The
H'rald editorially says that, whether the
result will be accounted for by the popular
Htrengtli of Gen. Grant on the one hand,
or the weakne of Greeley and the feeble
nes,s of the Liberal Republicans, combin
ed with the Democratic bolt on the other
hand, it is in many respects the most re
markable in the history of the country.
The Tribune gives Grant 232 electoral
votes at the lowest, and 7S for Greeley,
with the rest doubtful. There is scarcely
ti parallel It gays in completeness and tri
umph. It argues that Liberalism could
not withstand the enormous outlays of
money expended by the Republicans in
the canvass. General Grant now has four
years more power with heavy Congress
ional majorities, and in whatever way he
may seek to elll'ct reform he will have the
a.d of the Tribune.
The World places Grant's popular ma
jority at 300,000. It says that the defeat is
due to the Democracy Mirreiidering to
merely that demoralization consequent
upon the New York ring speculation of a
year or two ago, and the disparity the nom
inations at Baltimore. That party had not
recovered In time from the Tammany taint
to do anything until too late.
The 2Yicsgives Grant300 electoral votes
and Greeley 43, with the balanco doubtful.

ONE FEATTJBE OF THE VICTORY.
The "ground swell" of Tuesday has even
shook to its very centre the Democratic
stronghold of Tennessee. The grand out
burst of patriotic indignation that repelled
the corrupt Greeley coalition, swept over
Tennessee to rebuke the over-bearing, vin
dictive and sectional spirit that has per
vaded the extreme secession wing of the
Democratic party. The revolt of the
people of this commonwealth against
the partisan, anti-American policy
of the party in power has been so for
midable and irresistable as to con
found and terrify the leaders who
for so long a time, have rested unconcern
ed and over-confident in their oillcial sta
tions. They have presumed, upon a strong
party feeling and sectional prejudices, to
tolerate them in abuses of power that un
der ordinary circumstances would have
hurled them from authority. They have
rested secure in their strong partisan ma
jority, to force upon their voters, men
wholly unlit for and unworthy of the
oili.es to which they aspired. Corrupt,
intolerant and .incompetent, their leaders
have so far outraged every sense of honor
and patriotism thatnow.in an unexpected
hour, they are called to account for their
stewardship. The thunders of the battle
have not yet died away far enougli to ena
ble us at this writing clearly to give the
extent of the people's rebuke, but
enough is already known to say that
hereafter we shall have a better
Government in Tennessee, for the people
have shown a determination to think and
act for themselves and hold their rulers to
a strict acountabllity for the trusts confid
ed to them.
This is the meaning of Tuesday's ver
dict, and a gloriously significant day's
work it was. Now for a more progressive,
more national, more hopeful future for
The unstinted abuse heaped upon An
drew Johnson by the Rourbon Democracy
for his devotion to the Union In 1SG1 was
both unddeserved and Impolitic. The pre
scriptive spirit of tho Cheathamites lost
Greeley in every Northern State. Rut so
it has always been with the extreme De
mocracy since their advent in power In
Teunessee. Wherever they could do it
they have seemed anxious to show Con
servative Union men they only wanted
their cotes. Has the sacrifice of Johnson
opened their eyes?
The efl'ort of the 'Tribune to account for
the defeat of Greeley because Democrats
told themselves for five or twenty dollars
a head, sounds like some of those former
sentiments Greeley expressed towards the
Democrats when he tsaid that though
"every Democrat was not a horse thief
every horse thief was u Democrat." It is
very unkind in tho Tribune to charge that
the Democrats were bought up. They
werosold at Baltimore but tho delivery
never was made. "Go West, young man.

The result of Tuesday's election shows
that gerrymandering congressional and
legisiauvo aistricts in Tennessee is not
good policy, losing sight entirely of the
justice oi ine act.is To begin with, Horace
Maynard was gerrymandered out of this
district only to be taken up and elected to
congress from the State at Large. In the
second place the " Battering Ram" district,
indignant at the shameful proscrlptlve
spirit mat mapped It out two hundred and
fifty miles long, elects Thornburgl
over Caldwell, one of the representa
tives or the bourbon Democracy
that planned the miserable work. If wo
look to the legislative districts we find
Melton In tho 5th and Morgan In tho 0th,
Republicans elect, from districts shaped
so as to do certainly Democratic. Knox
aud Roane were separated and four coun
ties made into tho 4th district thai it was
thought would he close. As It is, Richards
is elected with n sweeping majority over
three competitors. The result, nil in all,
6hould prove n valuable lesson to such narrow-minded
partisans as have ruled In
Tennessee for two years.
