_ —• *—— ' AUGUSTA. TUESDAY rtdRWINQ, SEPT. 13, 1870. STATE ELECTION. Republican Triumph. Perbam Elected by 8000 Majority. All the Republican Candi dates for Congress Elected! LIGHT VOTE ! The Republican Column Firm and Vic torious Over all Opposition. The result of the State election so far as ascertained is given in the returns else where. In this city the election passed quietly. The vote was as large as anticipa ted, and as satisfactory to the republicans. The democrats worked hard and brought out all the strength they could command. It will be seen that the general vote in the State was light, but Perham is elected by about 8000 majority. A few districts where disaffection and disregard of nomi nations prevailed made a bad look*for themselves and cut down our legitimate majority, but the republican party comes out of the fight stronger in organization and hopes of continued success than it went ia. We elect the entire republican dele gation to Congress, and maintain our usual majority in the Legislature. I mler the circumstances with all the complica tions of the election and the desperate and unscrupulous efforts of the democrats, we have made a glorious fight arid won a victory of decided importance. I’erham’s mrjority is larger than Chamberlain’s of List year. The figures we give tell the re sult. THE STATE FA IK. The preparations for t ho approaching Agricultural State Fair in this city are going on rapidly, and indicate a large and interesting show, such as will gladden the hearts of our people to look at, and stimulate fanners and mechanics witli new zeal in and love for their occupa tions. There is much discussion about these annual shows and their management as invariably as the year rolls around, but their establishment as one of the institu tions of the land is a fixed fact. In the aggregate their results arc beneficial. They have their evils, (as what institution has not?) but the good vastly overbal ances the bad. in the sharp competition for premiums it is ine\ itable that dissatis faction will arise at the awards, even though the judges were gifted with the wisdom of Solomon and endeavored to be as just as Aristides. Somebody must be disappointed, and of course complaint will follow ; but if these somebodies are of true manly metal their failure stimulates to re newed exertion which is finally crowned with success. It is only the weak backed man in any business, farming, mechani cal or any other, that allows one or sev eral discouragements to control his ac tion and send him into the ranks of the per petual grumblers and disappointed do nothings. (jay what we win aooui agricultural fairs, they are really the greatest exhibi tions of productive industry we have, and we doubt not are destined to become more instead oi less, and to have as they grow a commanding influence over all the country. They form at once the farmer’s and mechanic’s holiday season, practical school and market, while the at tractions which they afford to persons of occupations not directly connected with them, in the splendid display of the best productions of field and garden, dairy, loom, needle, farm-yard, and the numer ous and valuable achievements of invent ive and artistic skill make them inviting to all. Nowhere else can a mere look er-ou get so much to delight his eye tor the same price, while to him who enters into the spint of the affair and becomes a worker, competitor and learn er the advantage is beyond calculation. If there are farmers so far advanced in the science and successful practice of ag riculture that they can learn nothing (the number of which is very few) they can and should make these seasons profitable to others by imparting their knowledge and exhibiting their success, having for their reward tiie satisfaction of knowing that they arc doing good. So there is something for all to do and enjoy. Male and female, old and young, all classes and conditions, may be gratified and ben efited by attending the annual fairs. It is a mark of their wide reaching influence, that theji thus bring together by some at traction all our varied jcopulation, making all pay homage to the harvest and the cunning works of the human brain. While tha county lairs claim the atten tion of their locality, the State Tail is en titled to the attention of all parts ol the State. It will bring together the best from all sections. It is the great centre. Aroostook and York meet here and com part products. The man who rears oi imports superior stock, w'ill be here with cattle and horses, while the worthy in ventor with liis labor saving machines will not fail to liring them forth, llius it will bo in all departments of the Suite Fair. It Will be the best that the State affords. The location of the Fair this year is favorable. It Is in the garden valley ol the State, in the midst of a people who live by tilling the soil and delight in their employment, hut do not reject a good ice j crop or fail to turn a granite quarry to account if it comes in their way. We think the State Fair will probably make as creditable a show in the strictly agri cultural and horticultural line, making due allowance for the unfavorable season, as it ever has. And this feature after all is and must he the principal one to ensure success. AA'e may admire pictures and statuary, hut a State Fair without potatoes and pumpkins, pigs and hens, and all the other adjuncts of field, garden and farm yard, lacks its principal attraction. Under the experienced and able management, di rectly and with the general interest already manifested, there is no reason to doubt that the Fair will he a complete success. BISMARCK IS TER VIEWED. The following account of a conversation with Count Bismarck was telegraphed from London. IIow much it reports of truth may be better known in a few days. I had a long conversation with him on the subject only four days before the victory of Sedan. The substance of it, 1 am nt liberty to make public. After a little talk about the war. and inquiries as to the recovery of his son w ho had been slightly wounded, I broke ground by asking Count Bismarck what were likely to be the conditions of peace demanded hv tlic Kingot Prussia’s government. He an swered at once, with great apparent frankness and iu the clearest manner. I need hardly re mind your leaders that Bismarck speaks capi tal English, so that there could be no possibili ty of my misunderstanding him. “TJiereare three courses open to us,” he said, “with re gard to peace with France. We must stop any possibility of another so unprovoked and uncalled for attack by the French nation or French government on our common father land. No minister who failed to do this could hold office for a week, for the opinion of all Germany would he against him. There are, as I have said, three ways of stopping the at tack on the Hhinc provinces. First, we might make Alsace and Lorraine neutral States like Luxemburg or Belgium, and extending from the former country to Switzerland, and so sep arating France and Prussia by a group of neu tral States. But I confess it appears to me that the neutrality of the existing small States is already so difficult to protect, anil is at every moment capable of so many and such dangerous complications, that 1 do not think it worth while to make more neutral States and with them new duties and dangers. Sec ondly, wo might annex Alsace and Lorraine, anu hold them as conquercil territory, tsui t am sure that this would not be looked on fa vorably by the majority of my fellow-country men. We are all most anxious to complete our unity, but we do not want any people among us who are unwilling members of the German nation. That the Alsarians would be the most disloyal subjects of the King of Prus sia in spite of a great number of them speak ing the German language, anil being of Teu tonic origin, there can be no doubt. Thirdly, there rcmayis to us, then, as the third course, to take Metz and Strasbourg, and to keeptliem. This is what we shall do. Strasbourg, partic ularly, is absolutely needful for the protection of South Germany, which is at the mercy of a French army. So long as France possesses Strasburg, there is nothing to stop the French invading army. Now, it would he very unfair if we were to leave our South German bretli ren unprotected after they have fought so bravely and well by our side in this campaign. Then, again, by holding Strasburg. we could always prevent any movement on the Rhine We should be able, not ouly to march an army by the valley of the Main on Paris, but to take the French army matching on Mayenee or Coblentz, in Hank and rear. So we have be sieged Strasbourg vigorously, and when we have got the old German town back again we shall make a Gibraltar of it.” “Hut allow me to suggest," I said, “that the cession of Stras bourg is not a thing to which France will he easily reconciled. All the more, because it is, as you say, the key' of France on the east.” ’ “Nay,” dear sir,” was the reply, “you have been with us continually since our entry into France; 1 have heard you constant ly talking French; now. have you not already seen that it would be difficult for the French to he more angry with us for our victories over them than they already are? No, not if we were camped in the Hois I)e Boulogne itself. And first, because they are, and will be for many a year to come, very sore against us, we must take care not to leave in their hands the means of doing us mischief. When you meet a drunken man in the streets, u lmt do you do, if he is mischievous ? call the policemen, don't you? Well, Strasbourg and Metz will have to lie our policemen, and good stout olfes, too.” “It is curious,” 1 remarked, “how much the Freneh do hate the Prussians, and what stories they tell and believe about you. I have lived a great deal in Paris, and 1 know there are told there as facts some fables which are all but incredible.” “Yes,” answered Count Bis marck, “we have taken the place of the Eng lish, 80 nay 20years ago, hut as they have come to forget their hatred of perfidious Albion, so they will have to find some day or other, that there is some good in us, also it seems as if the French nation stood in constant need of a bugbear to vent their rage upon. For the moment, we were the bugbears.” 1 ventured then to say, “I see that people are in great fright in England, lest your excellency should east covetous eyes upon Holland.” “Yes, I am aware that is an English idea,” replied the Count, “but like other English ideas it is not accepted out of the country of its birth. We want nothing in Germany that is not German, and Holland aertuinly is not German. Al ready Posen is looked upon with no friendly eye by many of our countrymen as a non-Teu tonie province. There is no fear of our taking Holland. As little as there is of tbe'French taking Belgium.” Assistant Treasurer Tuttle, in reply to in quiries made by the cashAr of the Third Na tional Bank ot Baltimore, has written a letter in which he states that the department does not desire the continuance in circulation of mutilated notes, but, on the contrary, that it has endeavored by the extension of liberal facilities for their redemption to secure their withdrawal from circulation. It is the wish of the government, he says, to keep the circu tion of the country in as good condition as possible at all times, as a means of protecting the United States and the people of the country from fraud. Mr. Washburne, in private despatches, has expressed grave doubts whether the present or ganization in l'aris can make itself permanent. 11c conveys the idea that while the leaders themselves are hopeful, they still distrust many who are prominent in both military and political circles, and there is a feeling that some who are active with the republicans are secretly lavoring the return of the Orleans f tmily to power.

Queen Victoria lias presented a sword to each of the friendly native chiefs of N ew Zea land. Late advices from Melbourne state that the Australian government is expediting the land telegraphic system in order to connect with' the India cable. Madame Lopez has received letters of ad ministration in the matter of the estate of the late President of Paraguay. Amongst the passengers by the steamship Australia, which arrived at New Vork from Liverpool, is Mad. See bach, the celebrated German tragedienne. The ladies of Wyoming, at the election on Wednesday last, generally voted, 171 votes : being cast by them in the Cheyenne precinct. The city of Charlestown. Mass., is invited to furnish the granite base to the statue to S. F. B. Morse, of electric-telegraph fame, to be erected in New Vork. Mr. Morse was born in Charlestown April -7. 1791. Colonel Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, form erly of Baltimore, was reported recently to be . in command of the Tuileries, Paris. His grandmother thinks he is the coining man in France. The little ship liagusa, which is only a lit tle over two tons burden, reached Boston from Queenstown after an eighty days' voyage. The President of Liberia' is in this country, trying to induce capitalists to invest in a rail road enterprise in Liberia, of which there is much need. The gale of Sunday wo k appear? to have had disastrous effect all along the Nova Sco tian coast. Many vessels are known to have been lost,.and there are yet many reported missing. It is noticeable that, of three candidates tor Governor before the New York Republican State Convention, Messrs.Woodford, Greeley, and Curtis all are editors. Victor Hugo received a grand ovation at the hands of the enthusiastic Republicans on hi? return to I’aris. Among those who as sembled to do honor to the exiled poet and l author were Rochefort, Michelet, Laboulaye, and others. Nathan Lord, I). 1)., ex-president of Dart- ! mouth College, died at Hanover last week. Dr. Lord was born in 1792, and was conse- ; quently seventy-eight years old at the time of his death. lie was a native of Berwick, Me., and was graduated at Bowdoin College in 1809. : A great manifestation of sympathy with the French republic was made in Madrid on the 8th. Twenty thousand citizens marched through the streets with banners inscribed with ] mottoes flattering to France, and bands play ing the Marseillaise. There was no disorder. After the procession, a mass meeting was held. The late Emperor of the French, Napoleon the Third, is at Wilhelmshohe Castle, near C'asscl, Germany, a prisoner of war, with an immense train of attendants; the ex-Einpress Eugenie is a guest of the Hoogvenn family, at their Chateau of Meyose, near Brussels, Belgium ; and the l’rincc Imperial, under the charge of his Governor, is at Hastings, Eng land. The Empress, it is given out. intends to visit her husband and then to rejoin her son at Hasting. On Friday last, in St. C'roix county, near Hudson, Wisconsin, Mrs. Lerchrue drowned her two children, set fire to her dwelling house and then took poison. The quantity of poison sho took acted as an emetic and thus saved her life. She claims that her children were drowned and her dwelling house set on lire by a man who came to the house and then ran off, and that she took the poison under the agony caused by the loss of her children, but her story is not believed. Mrs. Lerchrue and her husband have always lived happily togeth er and she appears perfectly sane. Her rea son for the deed is, therefore, a mystery. The news is telegraphed from London that the iron-clad turret ship Captain, of the Brit ish navy, has foundered off the coast of Spain, and that all on board were lost.

NEW EASTERN DEPOT FOR-THE WOULD RENOWNED SEWING MACHINES. Opposite the Tost Office, AUGUSTA, - - MAINE. These Machines, l>y their simplicity, durability, and the great range of work they execute, have gained a reputation truly enviable. The famuli* success of the SINGER M VNL'FACTCK* jng < omiwn v ha* stimulated many other compan ies to put forth all their energies and talents to produce a sewing machine that would eclipse or equal the Singer, but in every case they have sig nail\ tailed, as is plainly shown by the fact, that of all tlie travelling agent’s—“runners or drummers” —of other companies, none have the assurance to * laini more than an equality with the Singer, even upon any special class of work.
