The Victory in Ohio.
The glorious triumph which the Union
its gained in the election yesterday grows
greater the more nearly we examine it.
Returns from forty-nine counties give
Cox. 23,01)0 majority, with Ashtabula,
Lake, Geauija, and other Union strong
holds to hear from. The remaining coun
ties and the army vote will raise it to 30,
oon. Ve have carried both branches of the
Legislature swecpl ug majorities. The
total number of Senators is 37, of Re ic
sentatives 103. Of these the Unionists
have elected 24 Senators, and OG Repre
sentatives, and perhaps more. The Union
nmjority will therefore be at lcart 13 in
the Senate anu 27 in the House, or forty
on joint ballot. Yallandigham may as
well resign all expectations of represent
ing Ohio in the United States Senate

It will thus be seen that Cox's total
nmjority, in the city, is 264. The falling
off in the Union majority is 568. This is
not due to an increase of Democratic votes,
for there were fifty less polled than a year
ngo, but to the fact that there were 618
less votes polled than in November '64, at
least 500 of whom would have been cast
for the Union ticket if they had voted at

and Rice 3,699, a Union majority of 325.

been organized, carries the city by 143
majority, running just 121 votes- behind
his ticket. This is the sum total of votes
which the clique of soreheads managed to
influence, in Cleveland.
The remainder of the State and county
ticket received an average majority in the
city of about 270.

The Cholera—Its Appearance In Southampton.
[From the London Times. September 27.]
We are informed on most unouestiori-
oie autlioritv that-a decided and undoubt
ed case of Asiatic cholera, with a fatal re-
ult lias occurred in Southampton. The
ictim was a uiun named Rose, about thirtv
years oi age, residing in jsrewnotise-court,
rcwhouse Lane, who died on Sundav,
about thirty-six hours from his first attack,
the symptoms at every stage being those
ine most virulent torm ot this dreadful
disease. The unfortunate man himself
dated his illness from having been enga
ged a few days previously in cleaning out
very offensive cess-pool. Another case,
that of a woman living in a different part
tne town, is also reported as presenting
similar symptoms. Although these cases,
should they both prove to be Asiatic chol
era, may not presage an immediate prev
alence of the epidemic, they are sufficiently
alarming to call Jor nyilant and energetic
measures, without on hour's delay, on the
part of the local authorities, and, if neces
sary, the government itself. With a full
consideration of the fact that the town of
Southampton is in direct communication,
means of mail steamers, with the Med
iterranean , and only four days from Gib
raltar, where the cholera now prevails,
at which port these steamers call,
every possible sanitary precaution should
once be taken to guard the health, not
only of the inhabitants of Southampton,
of the country at large.
A Young Locked in a
Church for Three Days.
Yesterday morning an advertisement
brought to this office, asking for in
formation ot the whereabouts of a young
lady who nad uecn missing since Sundav
afternoon, and of whom no trace could be
found, and whose absence had caused deep
distress among her relatives. In the af
ternoon just before the Eagle went to
press, a gentleman came in to stop the
publication of the advertisement, stating
the missing lady bad been found, and
related the tollowiii"; smcuiar story:
young lady went on Sunday after
noon io the l'resbvterian Church, corner
Atlantic and Bond streets; after the
Sunday school exercises she went to her
iu the gallery. The minister having
leave town to attend the Synod, no ser
vice was held iu the afternoon, and the
sexton supposing the congregation had
retired, closed up the church, locking the
young lady in the building all alone. She
she tried to get out, but the doors re
ber efforts to force them open, the
windows were beyond her reach, and she
unable to make herself heard, outside.
she remained a close prisoner in the
church until Wednesday afternoon, when
sexton went in to prepare the place for
usual evening prayer meeting, and dis
covered the missing lady, who was in a
exhausted state for want of food,
having been fasting iu solitary confine
ment for seventy hours. Brooklyn Eagle.
The President's View of the Monroe.
The New York correspondent of the
London Herald records a conversation re
ported to have taken place between the
President aud a gentleman who called
upon him, in reference to the Monroe doc
trine. Ihe following are the observ ations
of the President, as given :
.My mission is the Union. 1 teel that
if 1 can, within my term of office, restore
all the States to their former relations with
each other and with the Union, and can
bring about as well a harmonious, if not
aosoluteiv Iraternal leeling Detween
aud South, I shall have merited the
applause of my countrymen, and earned
an honorable place in history. To the
restoration of the Union in spirit as well
as in fact, I shall bend all my energies.
hall permit no foreign question to in
terfere with the full development of my
heme lor such restoration. i have
enough to do without devoting attention to
other matters. The Monroe doctrine is
all right. I believe in it. But there are
greater principles at stake than those in
volved in tliatquestion. w lien tue union
is restored it will be time for talking abort
foreign aggressions on this continent. 1
shall do all I can to make the Southern
people happy, and to palliate the bitter

A Letter from Dickens.
The Autooravhic Mirror is a London
monthly publication, giving fac-similes of
the handwriting of distinguished men.
In its last issue appeared the following
characteristic private letter, never before
published, from Charles Dickens:
Devonshire Terrace, 1
2d January, 1814.
My Dear Sir: That is a very horrible
case you tell mc of. 1 would to God I
could" get at the parental heart of
, in which event I would so scarify it
that he should writhe again. But if I
were to put such a father as he is into a
book, all the fathers going (and especially
the bad ones) would hold up their hands
and protest against the unnatural carica
ture. I fiud that a great many people
(particularly those who might have sat for
the character) consider even Mr. Peck
sniff a grotesque impossibility, and Mrs.
Nickleby herself, sitting bodily before me
in a solid chair, once asked me if I really
believed there ever was such a woman.
So , reviewing his own case, would
not believe in Jonas Chuzzlewit, " I like
Oliver Twist," says , " for I am fond
of children; but the book is unnatural,
for who would think of being cruel to
poor little Oliver Twist?''
Nevertheless, I will bear the dog in my
mind, and if I can hit him hetween the
eves so that he shall stagger mora than

the combined efforts of Punch and Judy,

Ralph Waldo Emerson savs of him: "He

my means essentially the same.' He hud
no temptat ions to fiirht against no anrie-

and talk of hitrhly cultivated people were
all thrown away on him. He much pre

refinements impediments to conversation,
wishing to meet his companions on the
simplest terms. Ho did not like the taste
of wine, aud never had a vice in his life.
V hen asked at the table what dish b nro.

He chose to be rich bv niakinr his wnnts

travels he used the railrond only to gel

He liked and used the simplest friod, vet

Whilst he used in his writings and con

John Van Buren, in his speech at Al

remarkable that all the Federalists who
have been elected have died iu office, and
the Vice Presidents who succeeded them
have been good Democrats. Harrison,
Taylor and Lincoln died, and good Dem

the finger of Providence?" It may be
that the Democratic party is ordinarily
under the special care of Providence, who
takes off Presidents on its behalf. But
the general imprecsion is that it was Booth
who killed Lincoln and that it was not an
act to thank God for.

Liability of Rebel Agents for Private
An important case was tried before the
United States District Court tit .Mem
phis, Tenn, last week. It was that of
Park against Hamilton, and its history
as follows : In the vear 1862. while
rebel forces still held possession of
Memphis, the defendant, Thomas A. llam-
iton, was appointed by the rebel govern
ment an agent to seize certain sugars and
cotton, the property of merchants whom
was believed were purchasing and hold
sucn commodities upon speculation, in
view of the probable surrender of Mem
phis to the federal forces, and against the
laws of the rebel congress, and the declared
policy of that government; whose officers
were instructed to prevent tho undue ac
cumulation of articles of prime commer
cial value at-points as seriously threatened
Memphis then was. In obedience to
instructions then given him, Hamilton
seized a number of hogsheads of sugar,
property of Dr. A. J. Park
valued at $75,000 and turned it over to
rebel receiver or quartermaster, or
with other sugars at the time seized, sent
south by railroad. No vouchers wer
given, but a memorandum was made at
time of the value and number of bar
rels and hogsheads, and in some cases, we
believe, copies of such were furnished the
owners. Dr. Park now brings suit against
Hamilton to recover the value of the

What Kenneth Raynor Thinks.
The Post's special says: The letter of
Kenneth Rayuor, of North Carolina, al
ready alluded to as favoring the separa

years relapse into barbarism, and asserts
that the labor of the black race cannot be
made available in the South. In these
days the public opinion is unanimous in
favor of separation, and that the same
view is gaining strength" rapidly over tbe
South. He also says there will not be two
hundred bales of cotton grown in North
Carolina the present year.

DECISION THE SECRETARY OF TREASURY.
Washington, October 11. The Secre
tary of the Treasury lately decided to pay
the Texas indemnity bonds presented

they were loaned by loyal holders and had
been transmitted from the State of Texas
only through loyal parties. It is not,
however, the intention of tbe Department
pay bonds presented without such evi
dence and without a carefid scrutiny .of
the facts in each case.

$156,287,50. AVhite and Childs agreeing
deliver payment of $25,000 in cotton

coupons were to be delivered to them
immediately upon the execution ol

140 cents, being paid by the Government

date of the contract, AVhite & Childs exe
cuted a bond to the State of Texas to se-
cure a performance of the contract, and on

No cards or medicines were ever deliv
ered by the parties, but AVhite and Childs
have come North and endeavored to ob

light, it being no more than patroling

The New French Comedian.
From a late number of London Society
we collate an account of a reigning queen
comedy in Paris:
Mdlle. Schneider, formerly of tho Palais
Royal, but now of the Varieties, is very
handsome, and what is still better in
Paris very fair. Her most recent success
has been as La Belle Helene, in the bur
lesque opera of that title, composed by M.
Offenbach, to a story whose main incidents
are taken from the classic 'legend of the
Trojan Helen. It is not unlikely that the
color of Mdlle. Schneider s hair was the
source of the composer's inspiration ; it
certainly inspired the song to. Venuis
They pall me the Monde,
The fair danj-hter of Leda,"
wntch ts one or its favorits niorceaux. Not
content with the naturally flaxen-hucd
framing of her face, she resorted to art for
sunnier tint. To judge from her the
Greeks and Trojans fell out and fought
about a lady whose hair was- red. Mdlle.
Schneiders acting is extravagant. She
has a genius for absurdity, and is possessed
it as by an evil spirit. When debating
between conjugal duty and the dictates of
her heart, her. face will suddenly lose all
expression, her limbs become straight and
unmanageable, and she will move after tie
manner of a wooden doll afflicted witn St.
Vitus. She has a charming voice and
sings with taste and power. As she holds
high note she will shake her head like a
mechanical figure, or use her hands and
feet as If she were an automaton, whose
interior clock-work had been wound v.p
and set going. AVbenever she assumes
classic robe, it is to display beneath it
tricks, manners, customs, habits, antics
and expressions of a fast modern modiste.
The opera Bouge. where she performs, is
admirable institution, and while M.
Offenbach continues to compose, the resort
must be delightful for a couple ofjiuux'
Offenbach takes most of his subjects for
composition from heathen mythology,
mingling modern manners and mythologi
attire in the most extravagent way.
One hears Venus talk of cosmctiqus and
crinoline; Mars of breach-loaders ; Bac
chus of South African sherry, and Apollo
thejewsharp; Minerva taking three
lumps of sugar to her tea, and Juno 'Tow
ing" the cloud-compeller and talking
kitchen politics is a pleasant link cf asso
ciation between the past and the present.
Lirt jseue neiene. tne solos and chorus
Couplets des Rois are as humorous
pieces of exaggerated musical and dramat
absurditp as can be imagined. Not only
the air and the orchestration both mili
and heroic, but it is broken into frag
