THE PRESIDENT AND THE GOVERNOR.
[From the Baltimore Sun.]
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23.
INTERVIEW OF GOVERNOR SWANN WITH
Governor Swann has been here
to-day, and had an interview with
the President in referer.c to the po
litical complications in Maryland.
The subject was also considered in
Cabinet meeting. Under the de
cision of the Supreme Court in the
Dorr case, it is the dutv of the Pros
ident, when called upon by the
Executive of any State for aid in
suppressing tumult or insurrection
within his State which cannot be
suppressed by the force under his
control, to furnish such assistance
This will be done in the- present
instance, siiouJdtno necessity arise,
but it is hoped that it may be
avoided. Tho President has no
right to go behind the call of the
Governor, and will have nothing
to do with t lie matter unless thus

CONTESTS OF ELECTION.
Last Monday was n busy day with our
county officers In serving notices for con
testing the offices of Probate Judge, Aud
itor, Trt'iifiirer and Commissioner, elected
at . the annual election, on charges of
illegal voting and frauds of divers kinds.
In the language of the Supreme Court cf
Ohio, which is hotter exprewed than we
could say it: '-The importance, iu a gov
ernment like ours, of preserving the; purity
of elections, and ot ascertaining truly, and
rendering efl'ectlve, the will of the people
as lairly expressed through the ballot-box
needs no comment." In tho accomplish
ment of these purposes, the right of con
testing all elections, is, perhaps, the most
efficient agency provided by law."
Hence, we hope all our citizens, without
respect to party, will aid and assist In car
rying out the provisions of the law in re
gard to these contests, and to have the
questions settled ; and all who are known
to have acted illegally, brought to justice
Our county officers, we believe, ask
nothing but a fair vote, and. on these con
tests, want a lair canvassing of the mat
ters in controversy.
Vinton County. We cannot but attrib
ute the defeat of a portion of our county
ticket in Vinton county to the mistaken
policy of the Record in permitting the
Radicals, for a small compensation, to u.sc
its columns weekly to publish their false
hoods and vile abuse of the Democratic
party. The influence of the paper was
certainly thrown as much upon one side as
the other. We hope the publisher will not
be caught in that trap again. Portsmouth
Not caught in any trap, Bro. Newman;
and your notice Is only the echo of other
like stories that w ere calculated, and did,
damage the ticket In Vinton. But, in sober
earnest, we fd that Scioto county, in
1805. gave Cox a majority over Morgan of
28fl vou-s; and in 180C, your county gave
Su.iUi ;i majority over LeFcver of 488 votes
a grtiu on you of 219 votes in one year.
Was it the influenceof the Times that pro
duced this result?
We liavt no such gains on the Demoera
cv oi Vinton. The fact is, we were all
conscious of the rectitude of our cause,
and, hence, too sanguine of success. We
were well aware of difficulties in our ranks.
We have no regrets for tiic course we took-
We notice that several prominent Dem
ocratic papers in Ohio are favoring the
holding of a State Nominating Conven
tion on the 8th of January. We might a
well organize an army tor a campaign be
fore knowing anything about the number
or character of the troops we are going to
confront. The impending session of Con
gress will be more important in its results
either for the weal or woe of the coiiutry
than any of iu predecessors. We must
wait for its action before we are prepared
for business. The country may be con
vulsed with civil war before the period for
another election. Let us waitand watch,
and act when the time comes.
West Virginia Legislature.
We have not yet received sufficient re
turns to indicate definitely the complexion
of the next Legislature. We have made
several very Important gains. Three mem
bers from this county, and one from Tay
lor and one from Lewis are already cer
tain. We have probably lost one in Jefler
son and one in Tyler. We are looking for
gains in the interior and .southern portions
of the State, and believe that, if we have
not a majority, we have at least elected a
minority strong enough to bailie the Radi
cals and prevent the adoption of some of
their extreme measures. (Wheeling Reg
