--Blaine's words to his bench
men are a repitition of the words of
Zachariah Chandler-"Claim eve
rything." Cleveland's words are in
a different spirit, and show the
calm, self-retained, confident man
contrasted with the half despairing
speculator. He only says: "I have
been elected President, and I shall
be seated as President." There is
no doubt on either point.--N. Y.
-Gen. Chalmers announces that
he has been defeated in his district
by Democratic fraud. Considering
Gen. Chalmhners' relations to politi
cal purity, the question is why, in
the language of the late "Honest"
John Covode, he did not beat them
at their own game. There is no
occasion for Republicans to weep
over the defeat of Gen. Cialmers
any more than over tnat of the Hon.
Wm. Pitt Kellogg.-[Providence
-We have reached a crisis in
the history of our institutions as
momentous as that which confront
ed us when the echo of the first shot
fired against Fort Sumter reverbe
rated through the land. It is no
longer a question of parties or can
didates, but the far more vital ques
tion of whether the lawfully ex
pressed will of the people can be
nullified and falsified by a desper
ate and unscrupulous cabal of
spoilsmen and monopolists.-[N. Y.
Star, Tam. Dem.
--Dispatches from different parts
of the country tell us that. the
Blaine managers here were last
night flooding the country with as
sertions that Blaine had an assured
majority in New York. This at
tempt to stir up the country and in
cite violence by the wide distribn-.
tion of false election returns is dan
gerous and un-American. We ad
vise the Blaine manipulators not to
go too far. They cannot get up a
disputed election, and they ought to
know that they will not be allowed
to repeat the fraud of 1876.-N. Y.
-As ior those downcast souls
who seem really to believe that a
partisan defeat means national dis
aster, we commend to them the se
rene faith of Emerson: "Our helm
is given ud to a better guidance
than our own ; the course of events
is too strong for any helmsman, and
our little wheiry is taken in tow by
the ship of the Great Admiral,
which knows the way, and has the
force to draw men and States and
planets to their good." Providence
does not make mistakes, but in a
Ropublic, the .people, too, must
trusted. - [Boston Herald, Inde
-There will be no counting out
nor counting in. The purposes of
the people who have elected Mr.
Cleveland will be promptly and ef
fectually carried out. His election
is conceded by every respectable
organ of publio opinion in New
York State, including many news
papers that were Blaine paitisaus
and he will take his seat, when the
time eomes, ecballenged by the
ormrptionisti. Eves Jay Goud,
whose sinister, designs . led l m to
espouse the cause of corruption,
has forwvarded his fAlsome congr'at=
nlations to Albany, and the rest .Qf
the conspirators will lose no time
in placing themselves on the safe.;

How the Oolored Population Will.°
Be Benefltted by a Demoeratie
It is gratifying to note the fait '
that our colored population have :s?.l
Far outgrown their fear of 'Demo"
.ratic rule, as to accept with chewi
rulnesa the election of- OClevelanrld
tnd Hendricks. Under a :Demo=e-.
3ratic State govesnment they haa
lived by fAr more happily than an-.
ier the Radical regime, and theirs
relations with the White people have
been more friendly. We. dare sa
what no intelligent colored man wi1
;aipsay this; nor that the Demho
Srats have, thus far, better fulfilled:
their promises than the Republ
sans. After their emancipation ani
enfranchisement the colored peopl -
sld and young, were turned
into the world by 'the Republican;`
party, who have done absolutel*
nothing to ameliorate their cbnd
tion; but on the contrary~ t
done everything to keep them in'
antagonism with their white ii4e..,
bors, and thereby retard their ii
vaneement. The colored peol
have had no schools other than
those maintained at the expense of
the States impoverished by wa-i
and by the Radical. plnndere
whoge rule as marked by ilsordei.
The Repnblino demagog
have been nothing but malioio
intermeddlers between the two
ces in the Sonte, and by the
onism they have nursed, they l j'
retarded the progress of, thqt e .
tion.a quarter of a century. Wihy
the supremacy of the De
parto at Washington, will foli
the disappearance from the: pliiu
arena of the despagogues that have
*kept the two races in estrangemeni i
and we predict that from the ina
uration of Cleveland Hendrieksi
feeling-of friendship and confide
will spring, that in a short while
will bring substantial progress a
advaneement to all claseso;:if o: 1,
population. The white people;
the South are deeply interesed.
