The C, C..C. 3fc I. election, which took
place at Cleveland on tbe 4th inst., was a
very earnest affair, more so, perhaps, in
the way of preparation, than in tbe mat
ter of voting. Tbe straggle was between
be L. 8- & M. 8. interest on the one side,
and the Broad Gauge on the other. At
last year's election only 16,000,000 were
repre nled, "being about $2,900,000 more
than was usually voted-4, ptevious elec
tions. Two weeks before the election, the
broad-gauge party, headed by H.'Bv.Hurf
but, held 16,000,000 of stock. The oppos
ing party, representing the old stock hold
ers, and headed by Leland Bros. & Fergu
son, brokers of New York, held about 7,-
000,000. . This alarmed the broad-gauge
faction, and by strenuous efforts and the
liberal expenditure of money, it succeeded
in getticg 114,000,000 in shares and prox
ies. This contest forced tbe shares up to
83 in the New York market at which
many of the stock holders of the Leland
party sold out, giving the victory, as it
turned out. to the present management
Nearly the whole stock was voted upon,
there being $13,500,000, out of the $15,-

The Second Concert of the choir of
the First Congregational church, at the

regretted, as Ihe entertainment was of
much more than usual merit, fully equal
to the first, though many of the singers
complained of colds. The programme

bass was highly satisfactory both In mod
ulation and quality of voice. One feature
of this performance may be alluded to as
an advance upon tbe previous one. This
was in regard to the instrumental inter
ludes. They were particularly fine and
relish able. The closing duet and omr.

by Messrs. BIyth and Waite, and Misses
WillarJand Willey, was well chosen for

expressive beauty and adaptation of tbe

DON. Chat With the Editor.
Friend Seed : 1 need hardly say that
lam prompted to seek the editorial sanc
tum to congratulate with you at the spon
taneous movement over our beloved Ohio
to suppress the traffic in intoxicating li
puors a traffic that fills annually thirty
thousand drunkard's graves. That it is
work which needs the moral and per
sonal influence of every layer ot his coun
try, and should enlist all our best and
earnest sympathies and support, for its
entire success ; and it is a source for addi
tional congratulation that the Press is so
universally giviog to tbe movement its ef
ficient aid and co-operation. Why, then
should the women of tbe State not see in
the glorious work the Divine hand, and
tbe ultimate consummation end drying un
the fountain that has fii!ea their homes
with sorrow, induced crime, and brought
poverty and wretchedness into so many
lamiiy circles r wnat law and partizan
Christian men ana pbilathropists have
failed to achieve, the efforts and prayeis
the women ol Ohio are likely to accom
plish. Indeed, already, the traffic is as
suming a sickly hue, and the alcholic deal-
finds his calling assailed, and his mar.
aei ior customers -aiminisblng, while the
work has scarcely begun. And no move
ment has so stirred up the sensibilities o
people, without regard to class or call

this character it will find aid and en-i

Then let tbe press and the pulpit and

THE TENEMENT HOUSES.
One half of the million of people w ho
make up tbe great Babel live in what are
called tenement houees. You, oh dwel
ler in the village or in the country, have
an idea that a bouse is a structure of sev
en to twelve rooms, in tbe ceutre of a
pretty piece oi ground, with flowers, fruits
and such things about it, where a child
may be born and grow up with decent,
healthful surroundings. This is not what
500.000 people in this city know as a
house. To them a house means a rait
building, four or fire stories bigb, divided
into small rooms, (be rooms ten feet
square, tbe bed rooms closets. Light, the
cheapest or all things, is in these places a
luxury, aud ventilation is impossible.
Often twenty, thirty, and forty families
ae crowded into a single building, and
instances . have been known where as
many as a hundred and fifty apartments
have been crowded together under one
roof, each uf them inhabited by a family
of from three to five persons. Huddled
together in these communities or crime
and filth, a large part of tiie City's popu
lation live and die here, without ever
having known the true significance or the
The extent to which tbe overcrowding
system of tenement houses is carried in
New York, exceeds that of any other
Christian city in tbe world. A compara

numbers 807 to the square acre, and the
next most crowded acre is East London,
AND WHAT IS MORE.
Very frequently there is no pretense ot
separating families ny win partition
walls. Men find themselves unable to
pay tbe tent oi a wrote room, ana so
two or more families sre huddled into a
single room, tbe partition being a mark
on the floor. ' And in these places chil
dien are born families sleep together
male and female. Is it any wonder that
ails and preiona - are crowded ! Is it
any wonder that to keep common order
an army of policemen is required ?
THE OTHER EXTREME.
And while 500,000 people thus herd to
getber like cattle, living on the refuse of
the markets, and thankful if tbey get eveu
tbat.it is a sharp commentary on our
boasted civilization to read in a "society
paper that Mrs. Wm. B. Astor, at a recent
ball, wore diamonds to the amount ot one
million dollars, and laces to the amount
of one hundred thousand more. Tbe bus-
band of this woman Is worth not less
than $60,000,000, a large share or his
property being in these very tenement
houses I hare been, describing. He bas
nerer given a dollar in charity he never
repairs a bouse, or erer heeds a call for
air, light or cleanliness for the miserable
wretches who inhabit them. Tbe only
interest be erer takes in these people is to
see that they pay their rent every month
in advance, and to see exactly how much
money in tbe shape of rent can be screw
ed out of them. His father, the original
Astor, John Jacob, was not quite so bad
as his son. : The old man died worth $30,.
OUO.UUO. in bis last illness he woke up
one morning and asked for his secreta
ry : . ',; ...
"Mr. bas Mrs. Wilson paid her
month's rent f"
"I believe not," said the Secretary.
"It is $12. You will see to it at once
She is sick, and if you put it off she may
not pay it"
Twice or three times a dar would this
wretched old man ask it that $12 had
been paid, until, to quiet him, ibe Secre
tary took $12 from bis pocket and gare
to bim, saying that she had paid it.
-Tliat'i rieht that's
tbe old miser, and his fingers cloaed on
tbe money ; and now, .Mr. turn her
