OUR ROCHESTER LETTER.
Ed$, Tel: The failure of nijr usual let
ler lo reach you last seek Was due to the
.xtrnor'llnarjr amount of work wliic-b fell
upon the shoulders of every man on our
IochI force, owing to the great activity in
political circles in this vicinity. Never
has so much enthusiasm manifested itself,
or such hard work been accomplished in
any campaign in this country, as that
hUh characterized this full's work. Last
Wednesday General Grant .aid a visit to
Rochester the first time in fifteen years
nu euch a reception was ue ver accorded
any other living man. The people went
perfectly crazy over him. Never wae such
elegant and profuee decorations, illuinmin
atioiis and ureworks witnessed iu western
New York ai greeted the commander-in-chief
of "Boy in Blue" of the nation.
Twenty-five brass bands, besides marshal
bands, were in the proccbsion. Newgiiatier
men and reporters were the envy of the
sea of faces that were turned towards the
various stands where. Grant and C'oiiklinir
apared to review the "Hoy, in Blue," or
to speak. Did account books and diaries
were trotted out by dozens of men near the
atands, hoping they might lie taken for
representatives of the press and allowed a
place on the platform, but it wouldn't
work. I want to tell you the once riltnt
General, since he began in this canvass to
tell the people his views of both political
parties, has grown into the heart of every
true American and nothing but disloyalty
on the part of General Grant can ever dis
place him or make him anything but the
ideal American statesman and soldier, the
pride of every man who loves his country.
While 1 am writing the representatives
of both parlies are gathered at the polls in
this city, wailing for daylight to appear
the beginning of the si ruggle. The "Boys
in Blue" are ordered to re nnr.1 at their sev
eral places of meeting ana proceed to the
?olls at 0:30 ocloek this morning. New
ork is hopeful. Confidence is expressed
on every hand that the Empire State will
do hen-elf proud, and go on record with
at least 25,000 majority for Garfield and
Places of amusement have been almost
deserted. At no time has a large audience
greeted the line companies who have ap
peared in this city. This week bright,
sparkling, little Lotta will appear at the
Grand Opera House in "ilusette" and
"Zip." .At the Corinthian Academy "The
Pirates of Penzance" willncoupy the stage,
and the curtain at the Rochester Opera
House will roll up displaying "Tony I)o
nier's Humpty Dumnty Company."
General Geo. B. McCIellan paid Roches
ter a visit, the day following General
Grant's ovation, in the interests of the
Democracy. He was billed for a speech
but could not lie persuaded intoan error of
that kind after Grunt's clean sweep the
day before. A large share of the decora
tions in his honor were made bv Remibli-
cans who appreciated his services during
Dr. Slade, the Spiritualistic medium.
who catue to Rochester some weeks ago
and stirred the community up to a hnrh
state of curiosity by his assertions as 10
what the spirits did at his command, left a
few days ago without giving a seance. An
account of bis doings in the presence of
representatives of this paper was given in
the Ikleorapii in detail not lon since.
Legitimate news is very scarce, this cam
paign baa occupied the public mind to such
an extent as to shut out everything else.
"Dear me," business men say, "1 wish
this was over." Trade is expected to
great extent, but all merchants say they
ought not to complain, for business, even
under the existing state 01 atlairs, is re
markably gnnd. The dry goods stores are
crowded daily and it is really difficult to
be wailed upon. An elegant array of goods
are offered for sale and people are investing
a goou deal 01 money 111 dress.
f laids are all the rage for ladies wear,
entire suits, dress, ulster and jocaey can,
are considered nobby for si reet wear. The
ulsters worn by ladies to such an extent
lust winter, and were considered dressy
then, are only worn on the street and
yery stormy Weather now. The neatest
thing adopted oy tho ladles this season in
the way of a wrap, is a close fitting sack
with a short skirt trimmed with large
smoked pearl buttons and occasionally with
wiue Dram, iney are invariably matte o
heavy goods of a light color. Plush hats
and bonnets trimmed with the bright plu
mage 01 Dirds is considered the "tony
thing the more birds the "tonicr" the hat.
Furs, it is said, will not be worn to any
great extent this winter, unless by those
who have sealskin. Shawls and clonks
material of unique designs will be fashion'
Fairs, Club parties, balls, and a thou
sand and one entertainments of that char
acter will be crowded upon the Rochester
piiiuic, beginning wnn this wccK. A saut
ing rin k, nu a monster scale, is to be one
of the amusement features when cold
weather sets in.

revolution means not only the Ueteatof

disbundment of Democratio organization
to be followed by the disruption of the Re

ol the rxiutliern wing ol tho jjemocral
party Is now advanced in nearly every
Southern state. With a reasonable cer
tainty of electing Hancock, Southern Dem
ocrats would have stuck to the National
ticket, and cast 188 electorul votes for
Democratic candidate; but the unexpected
and overwhelming disaster in Indiana
paralyze Southern Democrats, and the
electoral votes will not now be oounted

developed by the result of Tuesday s elec

the truth of what he would relate he would
produce an old copy of the lndon Time,
which was a report tilling half a column
of the trial of a physician of London on
e charge of conspiracy against hira. Of
course the report only disclosed that he
was insane, but this the poor fellow con Id
not recognize. He disappeared several
years ago. His natural successor teems to
be the unfortunate creature who appeared
at headquarters recently.

estness, but because one of them wants the
rand mousoleum which Mrs. Stewart built
t Garden City reserved for himself. He
tells this story with auch plausibility of
manner, and incident and detail, too. that
one hardly suspects his insanity until he
reaches this astounding climax when his
manner chances instantly to fierceness.
The little M.fs Flito of the Court House
and City Hall is a woman of forty-five and
fifty, and evidently yery poor. She visits
the public buildintrs once every month and
makes formal demand of the various of-
cialg for her rent, or the use of the build
ings. Her mania is that she is the owner
f the public property of lSew i ork. In
her demands for her money she interrupts
proceedings in the courts amloflices.but she
never violent and is easily indiieed to go
away, bhe accepts anything in the form i
or shape of a check as payment, but if re- '
I use a this tender she threatens a writ 01
A very remarKaote mania is mat possess
ng a lady of middle age of this citv, who
is evidently one of culture and good cir
cumstances. She first developed this ma
in 1878, shortly after the publication
of the cipher dispatches in the Tribune.
She appeared one day in that office and
stated that she had an important communi
cation to make, but would do so onlv on
the promise that if it were used &be should
first correct and approve the report. She
then stated that she had instituted three
mportant suits, each lor a million of dol
lars; one against Gen. Grant, another
against the police commissioners, and the
third against the Western Lnion lelegrapn
Company. This startling statement natur
ally arouseu attention, and wnen sue aim
ed that the suits involved and exposed the
sending of the Republican ciphers during
the campaign of lHtiO, she was urged to
tell the story iu its fullest details. She
then told who she was, where she lived,
her connections and her wrongs. Just be
fore the election in 1860, while she was ab
sent in the country, the police commission
ers, under orders from President Grant,
had sent oflk-ers to her house, taken pos
session of it, and protected the agents of
l,n Vaann ir..!,,n rnuin-r,.u fwimniinv
while they were putting a large number of
ti'legranh wires into the walls and ceilings
of the house. Thev were so carefully con
cealed that when the mistress of the house
returned she did not for a lone time dis
cover them. She did so then only because
of the effect on her health, v hen asked
how it effected her, she htated that she pos
sessed the only electrical voice in the
country, which, for the purpose of sending
their oipher dispatches without iear or ex
posure, the itepubl icans used astneywouiu
use an electric battery. Of course this
wild story revealed the mania which pos
sessed her, but nothing else in manner or
language indicated it. Informed that it
would be impossible to use the information
she retired in a quiet aud ladylike manner.

Comets are very erratic bodies, coming
from all quarters and dashing through the
solar system in all possible directions.
Sometimes in dr.ubling the sun they come
so near as to graze his surface. Some seem
to come up from the immeasurable depths
below the ecliptic, and having doubled
heaven's mighty cape, plunge downward,
with their fiery trains, on the long travel
of a thousand years. Dr. Winston was

prison house of the damned, wheeling their
wretched tenants alternately near the sun
by fervent heat, then to the dark, cold re

VISITED BY HIS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS—A
Fremont, 0., Nov. 1. A grand demon
stration was he'd hero to-night in the way
of a procession and a call on President
Hayes, who returned to Fremont last night.
The precession, headed by the Light Guard
Band, formed on Arch street at the City
Hall and marched across the river, count-
er-marching and proceeding to the resi
dence of President Hayes. There were
000 or 700 torches in the procession and
two bands of music. On the arrival of the
procession at the Hayes House the Presi
dent was introduced by Homer Everett, 'J
and responded in the following speech:
Mi Friends and Neiiiubors: .1 am very
glad tomeet you ia such large numbers to
night. It is too late now to enter upon a
political discussion. Ihe important ques
tion which has engaged the American peo
ple for the last three or four months has
been presented and it is now too late to
discuss it. 1 may state what seems to me
to be the question which will be decided
to-morrow. We are interested all of us in
the National unity, in the supremacy of
the General Government. We are inter
ested, all of us, in the general prosperity
which tlio American people now enjoy.
The decision of onr citizens everywhere ia
that this National unity shall "be pre
served: that this prosperity which we are
now enjoying shall be continued and the
desire of good citizens must be to-morrow
to achieve the result. I do not not under
take, as I said in the first sentence, to add
10 the arguments, but how stands the ar
rav'r Who is it that upholds the banner
of'GetieralGarfield; who is it that upholds
the banner of General Hancock?
Upon the question of National unity how
do we stand.' These questions tell us that
only a f-:w years ago some were opposed to
this unity. Where are these armies; who
will, they support for President; these men
who'stood by Abraham Liucoln, where are
thev 10 day? Tho question needs no an
swer. The great body of the men that un
drrtook to tear down the. fabric of the ban
ner of National unity, thev to day follow
the banner of Hancock' 'fhose that stood
by the banner of the Union, they stand by
General Garfield. How is it on National
prosperity ? To-day we can truly say that
no nation of the globe enjoys such pros
perity as we enjoy; no people in the world
in our day or any age enjoy greater pros
perity than we enjoy. The proof is in tho
facts that the people of all other nations
are coming here to better their condition.
We can say what no other nation can say,
tnat every other nation sends us her citi
zens. They are coming here because this
is the best place on tha earth to better
