() THE COUNTY ELECTION,
We promised last week to give to-day j
the full official vote iu the County, but
as the Commissioners of Election have
not finished counting at tho time of
going to press, wo Will have to appro*
imafce at the result.
Chamberlain received, according to
our calculation, about 383G and Green

of over 300 since 1870. Wo'think the
?following County Tickot is elected:

THOUGHTS ON THE ELECTION.
It is our duty always to. Btrike for
tho right, less mindful of the temporary
result, than of tho justice and final
triumph of the cause. Upon this prin
ciplo wo entered into the present cam
paign, as well as that of 1870, and
even beyond the question of right, wo
think we have ample cause for satis
faction, and even of rejoicing at the
The task w hich' loomed up before us
of overcoming a Radical majority of
over 33000, was not one calculated to
inspire hope and confidence, and.yet
what has been the actual fruit of the

power with 33,534 majority. In this
^campaign Chamberlain speaks from
mountain to seaboard, and is compli
mented for his eloquence and argumen
tative ability, by a reduction of this
majority to probably 11000. .
By these facts and statistics we are
drawn to the gratifying and natura}
conclusion, that, in tho short space of
four years,1 over 10,000 cdiorcd men
have burst the letters1 of political slav
ery, and ranged themselves under the
banner of freedom, good government

Of tho 291 .members of tho present

- - General Granit, who led the Repub
lican party into power two years ago
with the largest majority, perhaps ever
given to a president, may /feel this
morning, as ho reads the return's of]
the November elections, that he has
been like the Prodigal Son, and has
squandered a precious political inher

If the greatest party evrtr known in |
this country is to be saved from utter
destruction two years hence, add if it
is not to pass from history disgraced as
well aa defeated, the leaders and man

in their policy. It would be still wiser |
to change many of the leaders them

[From the. New York Tribune)
Tho verdict of the country agniust
Giantism is delivered. There were
only two, great questions before the
people at this election. One was who
thcr the administration, deserves the]
public confidence, and the other was
whether it ought to bo . perpetuated.
They have both been anaWered in tho
negative, bo loudly that even the Pres
ident must hear the verdict.

and vanity, and Lspresenta me as rush
ing into controversy without counting
the cost If simply repeating what my
friends have said, concerning my sor
I mon, is an evideneo of . egotism and
vanity, then it follows naturally, that
I am like A. B., an egotist. Ho is
fond of repeating what his friends say
about his dental work, and doubtless
indulges frequently in praiso of his1
skillfull operations. Xwi- mistake? !
If A. B. will read a b ap tist book on
titled:?-"Bringing in Sheaves," he will
have a nice specimen of ^Baptist ego
tu&ai and will loam (I hope) to "sweep]
before his own doors before offering to
sweep before the doors ;bf others," as
tho old adage has it. And if he will
read j ust one littlo paragraph in my
article he will see that I do not claim,
either directly or indirectly, to have
"done what the greatest minds of the
age havo failed to do,"as he says. That ]
paragraph reads thus :-5-"! make no
claims to great originality of thought,
but have culled tho most precious
jewels to bo found'on this' subject, and
connecting them with my owii thoughts
have given them my .own moulding;
and now it remains to bo scon whether |
they are] worth any' thing or not." I
have not rushed into controversy, but ]
lhave simply defeuded the faith of the
apostles, martyrs, confessors and re
formers;! and I am not at all fearful as
regards the final result.
A. IV seeks to give moral tone to his
article by referring to the old latin
proverb, which ho imagines serves a |
good purpo'e,; but unfortunately for
him it neither ; beautifies nor gives
weight to lib uncharitableinroductiott.
He -has uncorked tho viafs of*his wrath,
labored to eclipsu the Pedobaptists, to
present me in a fabe light, to show
himself ii champion in controversy ,aud
after all his exertions, has simply pro
duced a. mass of gross perversions. He
has truly made "a ridiculous mus," of
my argument founded on the shortness
fpf fTohn's minbtry and tho:/vast nuin* ]
bor baptized-by him. And it shows'
lhbw a mail, although claiming intelli
gence and Christian faith, can perverL
tho truth. This argument I would
jlifcei to give in full, but as my articloj
is growing lengthy, I must forbear.
