TUESDAY rtdRWINQ, SEPT. 13, 1870.
Republican Triumph.
Perbam Elected by 8000 Majority.
All the Republican Candi
dates for Congress
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
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
(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

Fair. It Will be the best that the State
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
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.

Button-Hole Hodge,” ••The Over-Seaming,” “The
1 Knible-Loek-Knot-Stit<,h.”“ 1!la.-tic Stitell.”“Twist
ed Loop,” ‘Self-Adjusting Tension-,” “I I ing Finish
ami Beautifully Ornamented,” “Straight Needle,”
“Stitidi- Mikc-on-both-sides.” “Medal- from Fairs.”
“Vertical Feed Bar-," “Noiseless Bunning,” “Silent
Fee*I,” and last ami worst of all, the low-priced—
“Family shuttle Machines.”
Many of the.-e points are desirable, (ami the
Singer excells ail in each individual speciality ) but
the greatest use made of those special point-, is by
the retail agent w ho parades them before the inex
perienced purchaser with such fluent and earnest,
style, as to cntirelj divert attention from the really
important bearings of tlie case. While other inno
cent local agents ignornntlv represent that the ma
chine sold by them is capable of doing every varie
ty of work, t'f/ual to the Singer, and often do tin y
thus unconsciously -w indie customers w ho cannot
ufl'nrd to squander their sub.-tanee upon gilded
follies and worthless rattle-traps.
