Mr. 3lorton is forbidden to apiH'ar; so
that, with all others present, thecount
woubl stand 38 ICepulilicans against 33
DennK-rats, or an apparent majority
of 5, exclusive of Judge Davis. Look
ing back only a few years, tliee fig
ures show a wonderful decline in the
ong ascendency of the Kcpuhlican
party. It is tlie more rcnarkahle
trom the tact that the rcnaie is a per
manent liody, ofviiich one-third goes
out every two years, irausient caus
es cannot, therefore, lie assignwl for
this great change. J he true cause is,
the country has lout confidence iu the
party, which is responsible for the pro
digality, corruption, public plunder,
and demoralization which have pro
duced the existing general distress.
Until the fourth of March, 1S7!, the
Kepulicans will hold two Senators in
each of the following 13 States: Cali
fornia, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, .Manic,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesoto,
Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire,
Khodc Island, Vermont, and AYiscon-
sin; and one ?en;ior in iaiaina,
Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana,
1 WSlSSippi, loriv, viuu, fit:wii,
Pennsylvania, and South Carolina
3! in all. Mr. Morton, whose condi
tion is precarious, and Mr. Patterson,
who is likely to be expelled, are lioth
included m this count.
It will be oliserved that the lJepubh-
can strongholds are iu five New Kng
land State, and nine Northwestern
States some of the latter by only a
feeble and passing grip. California
has just discarded Sargeant, which
takes one State from the column, and
others will be apt to follow the exam
ple. If the falling off In Maine has
any significance. The Democrats
hold two Senators in each of the fol
lowing 22 States: Connecticut, Dela
ware, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri,
Maryland, New Jersey, North Caroli
na, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, and
West irginia; and one rsenaror in
Alalmma. Arkansas, Florida, Indiana,
Mississippi. New York, Ohio, Oregon,
and Pennsylvania 33 iu all.
Tweuty-four Senators win go out on
the 4th of March 1879, and without
ixTculatinir upon prombihties, there
are certain data to determine the oIit
ical complexion of tlie body on that
lay. Alabama, Arkansas, florid".
South Carolina? and California, will
surely elect Democrats in place of
Spencer, Dorsey, Conovcr, Patterson,
Sargent. The chances are that Pat

to act with tlie ltepublicaus, which is
an unwarranted assumption, then the
Democratic majority would le three
There remains only to lie considered
the factor of the three vacant'iea from
Iuisiaua and South Carolina. No
doutit exists as to tlie legul right of the
three Democratic claimants from those
States, and the prol lability is they will
all lie admitted without any serious or
prolonged controversy. The enforced
absence of Mr. Morton will be a se
vere blow to the ajiiittionsof Kellogg
and his colleague, for no other Spuator
will esjHHwe their csi list; as ho Would
have done. An effort may lie imssibly
made by Mr. Howe ami others of his
stamp to resist the inevitable, but it
will lie weak and must fail, for, at the
very worst, the Dcmtx nits are strong
enough, without counting the allies
reatly to volunteer, to prevent any ne
ecfsiou from these vacancies to the
hide of their opponents.
Outside, and not taken into the
alsjve account ttt ull, Indiana, Illinois,
Nevada, New York, Oregon, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, are
among the doubtful States to elect
Senators liefore 1S7U. It will not Is
pretended that the ltepublicaus will
carry them all, and if they did, the re
sult already given would not lie chang
ed. Kvery vote gained from them
will increase the Democratic majority.
The other States to elect are pro
nounced for one side or the other, and
therefore are not disputed. -
Tlie four carpet-lmggcrs are in a dis
satisfied state of mind, and would like
to make a Istrgain with the Demo
crats for dividing the spoils. By ia
ruting from the liepublicaus and go
ing over to their opponents, they
could elect all the officers and get is
session of the entire patronage of that
body. Overtures have been made to
this ettect, but the response lias not
been encouraging. The gain of a few
offices would be but little in comiMtri
son with the loss of moral prestige
from a corrupt and disgraceful alli
ance. Therefore, the organization of
the Senate will stand unchanged until
the 4th of March, 1879.

The following article from the Dal
las (Texas,) Jli itihl should lie read by
every ierson contemplating moving to
the Ijone Star state:
"To the young man with his hair
parted in the middle, who is about to
put bis college education and le
leather trunk nUiard the Texas tioiind
train, we ay stop! To the clever
artist and honest mechanic, who
thinks he will fly from the bard times
where he is, to imaginary well paid

we also say slop ! To the adventurous
rustic who wishes to leave the turiiis
of some New York farm to find a soft
thing in this land of pralrk-s, wc em
phatically rejHat stny where you are.
W would lie inhabiting the earthly
elysium that few Texas jiaper say we
do, but we don't. From the bottom
of our heart we would lie glad to think
that there was plenty ami prosperity
for every one who seek tosettle among
us, but all the same there isn't. We
do possess something of the approach
of the eternal tmtnmer and the marvel
ous growth the east is so tired of hear
ing us brag about, but isn't all. Sooth
to say there is no chance here for men
without money, all the eager, new ar
rivals to the contrary notwithstand

ed truth is, that our lalxir market is al
ready stocked to overflowing, and
every fresh arriving train but adds to
the miserable, multitude in our midst

its way back east again.
Ik-fore the door of nearly every

good clerks, excellent accountants,
business men of undeniable energy,
mechanics of ability, walk tho streets
in dumb despair, and finally take
those that lead to the chaingung ami
the work-house. Tlie writer of this
cannot remember one evening for
many that he has not been asked for
money to buy a meal, or lied, by men
who would have sooner died on the
riu-k than to have asked alms in the
light of day. And some of them do
lie on the rack the rack orcontmud
lisapiKiiutmcnt and misery. Yet
some journals calmly sing the same
old siren song, and still this over

prostrated community is held up with
fatal persistency as the proiier Mecca
of the American youth.

In the name of tlie distress we s-e

A Magnificent VTieat Harvest.
The winter Ml'eut crop of the N'orlh-M'i-st
harvested and savi-d several
weeks ago is the largest produced In
this enuntry for many years. Tho
spring wheat crop is also line, and an
unprecislentiil yields is counted on.
The total wheat crop of last vcar was
2KtUMKi,uno bushels. This vcar it is
estimated ut 32-",i mhi.uiki bushels. The
average eximrt for " years has licen
il.oun.iHHi bushels per simum. Tho
largest amount ever exports! was !hi,
i UK I, I Km bushels. It is exiectcd that
PKl.tKKI.lKKIof this year's crop will 1st
sent abroad. An increased foreign de
mand is anticipated, owing to the dis
turlied condition of aflairs along tho
Donulie and adjacent countries, from
whence heavy shipments have Iieeu
made hi former years. Previous to
1872, Kussia shipjied almost as much
M'heut as the United States, but last
year the supply whs only one-third a
great as that of this country, and her
proportion this year likely to U much
less. The Northwestern wheat crop
has been unusually bountiful this year.
The estimated yield, according t oca re
fully compiled and trustworthy statis
tics, made up at Chicago, will sum up
as follows for four States:
