The Credit Mobilier Reaction.
LIGHT BREAKS THROUGH.
THE ELECTIONS.
From all directions we hear
good election news. The dark
cloud of Radicalism that has
so long hung like a pall over
the people 1 of that, the fairest
portion of our country, has heen
reni asunder and the light of
Reform breaks through, giving
hope and courage to an enter
prising people, and to all true
patriots who love the Govern
ment bequeathed to them by the
Fathers of the Revolution. The
local elections held last Mon
day in Ohio and Connecticut,
' and on the Tuesday previous in
several other States, resulted in
a complete triumph for the Dem
ocratic and liberal ticket.
Large gains were made in every
precinct, and, in many places,
for the first time, the Democrats
are victorious. A Democratic
Liberal Mayor was chosen in
Springfield; the Radical city
of Cleveland has repudiated
Radical Mobilierism and High
Salary stealings, by electing an
independent Mayor; Chillicothe
has chosen a Democratic May
or; Cincinnati has elected the
entire municipal ticket and the
candidates for Delegates to the
Constitutional Convention nom
inated by the Democrats and
Liberals; and in Milwaukee,
St Louis, and other cities, the
gain for the Liberal ticket is
unprecedented, and indicate a
current of indignation on the
part of the honest masses that
will sweep from power the cor
rupt and perjured scoundrels
who are now bringing ruin on
the people. The people, every
where, have enough of Credit
- MobilitT enough -of Back Sal
ary steals and enough of bri
bery and Radical rottenness.
The result of the election in
Connecticut is glorious. See
the good news elsewhere in this
paper.
The Connecticut Election.
As we write the returns from
Connecticut show a majority in the
towns beard from of 5,516 for Mr.
Ingersoll, the Democratic candidate
for Governor, over Mr Haven, the
Republican candidate, giving indi
cations of a Democratic majority in
that State of about four thousand.
This can not by any stretch of the
Presidential vanity be regarded as
exactly a "vindication" of the Ad
ministration party. It is a gain for
the Democratic-Liberal party of
considerably nioro than seven thou
sand votes on the last Presidential
election, in which Grant's majority
over Greeley was more than four
thousand. It is a triumphant "vin
dication" of the wisdom of the coal
ition between the Democrats and
Liberal Republicans in the cause of
reform. We do not need to go far
for testimony to that point, but tho
news from tho New England State
is emphatic. Tho two branches of
tho Reform party met and nomina
ted their joint ticket harmoniously,
and with eqiuil harmony conducted
tho campaign before tho people.
The Prohibition ticket - in the field
did not command any considerable
. fallowing; the Republican and Dem
ocratic candidates were evenly bal
anced ill a point of fitness and pop
ularity, and tho issuo may be re
garded as' having beenji..di8tiiua

ruDiiong were nameu in win cuv
last May and ro-afllrmed at Balti
more, and the party that made those
charges and rodo to success in this
" last election in that State by reason
of having proved them, The bo-
' lief in the truth of those assertions
lias been emphasized by a change
of seven thousand five hundred
votes slnco November inthoStato
' of Connecticut, which has never
' given so pronounced a Democratic
' majority. For the exact majorities
1 we must await further returns. Tho

The following Is the result of the
election held for township officers
in Madison township, on Monday
Inst:

By the above vote it will be seen
that the Democrats and Liberals
elected their entire ticket, except
Treasurer. The Democratic and Lib
eral vote of the township was very
small, at least 100 were not preseut
to vote. . Taking into consideration
the small vote polled, the Democrats
and Liberals gained a noble victory.
Elk Township. Tho election for
the various officers in Elk township,
held on Monday the 17th, passed
off very quietly. The result is as
follows :

It will be seen that but one Dem
ocrat was elected Eli Reynolds for
Constable. Ilad the full Democratic
and Liberal vote of this township
been polled we should have elected
one or two candidates. From the
vote cast for trustees it will be seen
that J. T. Foreman will act as Judge
of the Election during the year, in
place of S. B. Ullom.
. Justice Election. An election
for Justice of tho Peace was held
last Monday, in Elk township, for
the selection of a successor to Rob
ert Sage, whose full term of office
is about to expire. At the conven
tion, a few nights before the elec
tion, which was composed of a very
few persons of the opposition, it was,
for some unexplained reason, deem
ed necessary to place Isaac Rey
nolds in nomination for Justice in
stead of our veteran frieid, Robert
Sage. A portion of the opposition
party were dissatisfied with the
nomination, and declined to sup
port the nominee. A few hours be
fore tho voting commenced C. W.
Holland, late Clerk of the Courts,
was proposed. Tho reader can
now look upon the result:
C.W. Holland, (Dem.) 145

for Grant. . He can go to more

An Awful Disaster at Sea.
The telegraph announces that
on Tuesday morning April 1st,
a fearful marine disaster oc
curred to the steamship Allan
tic of the White Star Line from
Liverpool to New York, while
on her way to Halifax, Nova
Scotia, for the purpose of get
ting a supply of coal. She
struck on Meagher's Rock,
about twenty miles from Hali
fax, where she became a total
wreck. There were nearly one
thousand persons on board the
vessel, and it is reported that
fully seven hundred souls have
perished. The ill-fated steamer
left Liverpool on March 20th,
with a list of nine hundred
steerage passengers, and fifty
cabin passengers. The vessel
is said to have had a rough
passage, yet no accident hap
pened until Monday, when the
supply of coal gave out and it
was necessary to put into Hali
fax. The captain and his offi
cers were on deck till about
midnight, and the vessel seemed
in a safe running course. Short
ly after, however, the vessel
struck the fatal rocks named,
and while the captain and offi
cers were getting boats ready
to save the women, they were
taken possession of by a mob
of men. Just at this point the
steamer fell on her beam's end
and sunk. One of the boats
that had been gotten out with
some passengers was swamped
by the sinking steamer, and all
were lost. Some of the unfortu
nate passengers clung to the
fatal rocks, and only a few were
rescued by the fishermen of the
place, who rendered all the as
sistance in their power. About
250 persons only were saved,
together with the captain and a
few officers. The Atlantic was
one of the finest vessels on the
ocean, and it is dreadful to think
how such an accident could oc
cur or who is to blame.

The Delegate Election.
The election in tho several town
ships of Vinton county for Delegate
to the Constitutional Convention,
held last Monday, resulted in the
defeat of U. 8. Glaypqole and the
election of Harvey Wells of Jack
son, by about 470 majority a vic
tory for the Radical Ring of McAr
thur, It was understood by this
"Ring" during the enmpuign last

At a meeting of Presidents of

it was decided to contlmio to run

mittee r'iort on tho subject The
PoHtinuHtor.Lfcncral has addressed
a letter to tho Attorney-General on
the subject, asking explanation on
several legal points involved; wheth

has the government, as represent

Suppose that ' in the month of
September Inst the Republican man
agers had anounced that if they
should succeed in tho approaching
Presidential ' election; one of the
measures which they would first en
act Mould bo to raise the salary of
President Grant to $50,000.
Supposo it had also been believed
by tho people that tho Republican
majority in Congress, after having
been paid tho stipulated salary for
their -services, would votcj them
selves $5,000 each out of the) Tieas
Or supposo that theso two prop
ositions , had been; incorporated in
tho Republican platform adopted
by the . Philadelphia Convention,
by which Grant was nominated for
re-election,. . ,
. How many States would Grant
have carried ? How many Repub
lican Congressmen would have been
re-elected ? Is it not evident that
Grant could not have rot a single
State, and that every Republican
candidate for Congress, runinhg on
such a platform; would have! been
defeated ?
All this being true, is not tac in
sauity of public robbery whkh has
led Grant to the lobby for the pass
age of a bill through Congress
raising his own salary to $50,000 a
year, and which has led Republi
can Congressmen to pass that bill ?
If thev dared not anuounet this
enormous act of robbery as i part
of their plan before the election,
how do they expect the peopl to
regard it after the election ? Xeir
