publican successor both the pivotal States
Ohio and Indiana. The sweep seems to
be clean, carrying the State vote and Con
gressional oleclions. The steadfast belief
is that tho Presidential contest is virtually
settled. The steady run of the dispatch
es, with but few exceptions, have been in
favor of complete Republican victories in
both of these States. Hancock Is looked
upon as a dead duck, and beyond resusci
tation. From a calculation based on some 37
per cent, of the returns from Indiana show
that the Republican majority cannot be
less than 5,000, and Is likely to be much
greater. Jay Hubbell chairman of the
Republican Congressional Committee as
serts that Indiana will have eight Con
gressmen, and that, too, with a good work
ing majority In the legislature.
The Leader gives a dispatch on the
morning of Thursday, 14lh, to the effect,
that if the reports and calculations on
Indiana and Ohio prove correct in giving
the Republicans the legislature of Indiana
it will have tho elTect of a tidal wave upon
New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
One of the important results will be to
give the Republicans control af both the
Senate and the House in the next Forty,
seventh Congress. The Senate now stands,
Republicans, 8.1, Democrats 43, Independ
ent 1, (Davis or Illinois). The Indications
are that the Republicans will gain one
Senator In each of tho following States:
Connecticut, Indiana, New Jersey, New
York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and lose
in Mississippi, leaving 88 Republicans in
tho Senate after March 4. The Democrats
will lose the foregoing six and gain one
in Mississippi, leaving them 39, one less
than a majority. Should Davis, or Illi
nois, vote with the Democrats, making a
lie, Arthur, as presiding officer, will have
the deciding vote.
According to present indications the
Republicans may count on a majority of
at leant ten in the House.
The magnificent mass-meeting of busi

regarding the Presidential election, had an
ominous meaning for the free-trade and
low-wsges doctrine of the Democracy.
Representatives of all the great nierehan
tile and manufacturing interests of the
country delivered addresses of warning
against the danger to our prosperity in
volved in the possibility of a Democratic
victory in the present contest. These
words of warning, addressed especially to
the workingmen of the North, will not fall
upon unheeding ears. The farmer, the me

to take the buttor off their hard-earned

Sotlio Guardian of Paterson undertook
to interview him. The result is altogether
charming. The General did not refuse to
be interviewed. Far from it. He took
the HMiumiiu- renreseuutive of the Guard-
ian close unto his heart, and confided to
him in tho most touching and sincere fash
ion that his "election could make no dif
ference one way or tho other," and that
"the tariff question was a local question'
anyway a "matter that the general Gov
eminent seldom cares to interfere with."
What more could Paterson desire? We
confess that Mr. Ottifleld would not go as
far us this. He would do what he could
to carry out the Republican idea of the

The religious gathering known as the
Pan-Presbyterian Council, which has just
closed Its session at Philadelphia, was one
of unusual interest. Three years ago the
first of the kind was hold at Edinburgh,
Scotland, at which forty different sorts of
Presbyterians gathered from all over the
world, exchanging greetings and benodiO'
tlons, and strengthening each other in Ihi
faith. At this session there wore repro-
semen nearly an the civilized nations on
the globe. Thirty subjects were discussed,
divided equally under the heads of "theo
logical, " "praotical," and "ecclesiastical."
The counoil has no authority over the
churches, and its only purpose is to pro
mote the genoral good of the denomina
tion. It was discovered at Edinburgh that
there are about forty-eight different kinds
of Presbyterians in the world, and one
objoot of the oounoil was to bring them
luto closer harmony and unity.
General Garfield did not exceed the truth
when he said to the 400 young gentlemen
who visited him the other day, and who
are voters this year for the first time, that
the spectacle was unparalleled in this coun
try. It may be as truly said, that the mass
of the young voters of the oouutry have
always been on the side of the Republican
party, as it represented the growth of ideas
and goncral progress, while the Democrats
have been confessedly a stationary party,
elinging to the Ideas of the fathers and
grandfathers ot the party. The Democrats
are just now widely discussing the declara

OUR ROCHESTER LETTER.
ih. Tel. Believing that the happen
ings of a woek in a busy city, gleaned by a
newspaper man, maybe of interest lo your
readers, I will submit them, together
with other bits of news and gossip.
The return of cold weal her has brought
thousands of ponple back to their homes
from sea shore and country, Improved and

donee of the inspiration stored away in
their natures by weeks of rest and sight
seeing. Their sermons are fresh, bright,
sparkling, and able. The churches are
well filled once more. Passing along the
main thoroughfares last Sunday evening
after church services, the writer found
them filled with people returning from
church. This speaks well for the morals
of a city. Besides, It is not fashionable "o
stay away from church In these days. In
society you are averaged up according to
whether you go to church or not and what
church you attend. Perhaps this ought
not be, but it Is,
Politics are discussed everywhere and by
everybody. Even the ladies take a hand
in the exciting topics. Local publics re
ceive but little attention, the stars around
which all lesser lights gather are Garfield
and Hancock. It would amuse you to
hear the Democrats claim this and thot
state Ohio for instance ihey will tell
you without blushing and in dead earnest
that they will carry Ohio next week. In

down and they expect to eat it in Noven

of the Democracy and choke it to death.
I want to tell you of a litllo experience
hail with the famous Dr. Slude, the spirit
ualist who has puzzled professional men
in r.urope recently, ami who is stopping
in iniscny ior i ne present. Liast&utunlay
evening, two representatives from this
paper called on the gentleman at his hotel
auu akeu for an exhibition of his wonder
ful powers or rather a manifestation by
the spirits. Tho doctor who is a handsome
well formed young man of about thirty
years, received the serilies verv cordiallv
and invited them in, after a pleasant chat
of a few minutes the doctor requested the
visitors to thoroughly examine tho room
and everything in it ; when satisfied that
nothing in the way of traps, etc., used by
jugglers were in the room, all three gather
ed around a table in the centre of the
room. The feet of the doctor were held
firmly by one of the visitors, while the
other watched operations above the
table. In response to the nueslion iiro
nounded bv tho doctor: "Snii-ita do vnn
want to talk tv night?" three, distinct raps
neani ami leu., were macio on the tuple,
1 he doctor then got up and went into
another part of the room to procure a slate
anu while ne was gone the limbs or ttie
visitors were clutched by hands underneath
the table though the closest scrutiny re
vealed nolhiug. Two slates wore placed
together, one on ton of the other and a
bit of pencil placed between. Tho hands
of the doctor were held by the visitors, who
placed an arm on each end of the slute.
1 he doctor requested the spirits to write
message to one of the young men. Im
mediately sounds of rapid writing came
from between tho slutes, continuing until
the slate was writton full. Tiirninir the
top slate over, the bit of pencil was found
and on the slate was a message from Dr.
Bly, a prominent oitizen of Rochester who
died a few years ago. He will probably be
remembered by J. Sum. Blyth, as a manu
facturer of artificial limbs. The table,
which was a heavy walnut one, began to

his associates of his own age, while his dig

Roscoe was quite young, his father, Judge
Conkling, was announced to speak at a
political meeting in Livingston county.
When he came forward on the platform

is printed in Loudon by the Froe Trade
Cobdcn Club, and tho title page reads:
"The Western Farmer or America, by
Augustus Mongredicn, (author or Free

Peter, Oiilpln & Company, London,
printers." The dedication reads: "Those
pages are respectfully Inscribed to tho
runner or America by their Biucore rrlend,
Jloiigredien, Forrest Hill, near Lon

book is to show the Tanner or tho west

all their goods by reason of tho pro-
tection afforded by the American Tariff
