AUGUSTA.
FRIDAY MORNING, SEPT. 10, 1870.
election RBTVRXS.
Wepublish this morning the official returns
ft-om 339 towns. The whole vote cast in these
towns last year was 82.371, the whole vote
cast this year in the same is 85,763, an in
crease of 3392 votes.
The vote of last year was, Chamberlain
45,155, Smith 33.073, Iliehborn 4143. The
vote this year is. Perham 47,006, Roberts 38,
757, Chamberlain’s majority was 7939, l’er
liam’s is 8249. The towns not included in
our returns will not materially alter the re
sult, hut will leave Perham with about 8500
majority.
We have returns which show 134 Repre
sentatives to the Legislature elected, of which
101 « republ cans and 83 democrats. The
House consists of 151 members. In the Sen
ate we have 28 republicans and 3 democrats.
The character of the Legislature is such as
to leave no doubt of the re-election of Mr.
Morrill to the Senate.
THE SENATOR QUESTION.
In commenting upon the result of our
Stole election, the Boston Advertiser very
properly censures the measures set on foot
to securu the election of Governor Cham
berlain to the Senate, pronouncing them
“unusual" ami “injustifiable.” In this
the Advertiser is clearly right, but when
it goes on in the same article to express
the idea that the Senatorial contest in this
State is simply on account of personal pre
ference between two candidates, k mis
represents the actual slate of things, and
fails to give that importance and charac
ter to the efforts to return Mr. Morrill to
the Senate which properly belong to them.
This is not the view which the republican
party of Maine take of the contest, nor the
basis upon which they act. Taught by
stubborn anil painful facts they have come
to realize that this is not a mere struggle
for personal supremacy between two can
didates of the same party, but a contest
involving the very life of the republican
party in Maine. If Senator Morrill, with
all his personal popularity, stood leaning
upon the democrats, depending upon their
votes to elect him to the Senate, he would
lie abandoned by his political friends at
once, and instead of being as he is to-day
and will be next w inter, ihe almost unan
imous choice of the republicans elected to
the Legislature, he w ould be as destitute of
republican support and sympathy a* is now
his competitor. It is not therefore a ques
tion of personal preference. It goes deep
er than that, to the .foundation of the re
publican organization. Governor Cham
berlain has many personal friends in the
republican party, but not oqe of them who
is a true republican and means to maintain
an honorable foothold in the party will
hesitate, in the light of recent events, to
cast his influence for Mr.,Morrill. The
article of the Advertiser is mainly so cor
rect that we copy the following to show
what outside and disinterested observers
think of the “Chamberlain movement,’’ so
called by its originators.
“We have no hesitation in saying that the
whole difficulty arose from the very unusual,
and, as we think, very unjustifiable, meas
ures set on foot to secure the election of Gov
ernor Chamberlain tothe Senate. We would
not be understood as expressing a preference
as to whom the Maine legislature shall choose
to that position. It would he impertinent for
us to do so, as that is a matter for the legisla
ture alone to decide without interference from
any one outside the State, ltut we ds regard
it as a subject for criticism by all who are
interested in the success of the republican
party, tiiat the movement was originated in
such a way that it could only be carried out
by a coalition with democrats who openly
professed to be contented with the election of
General Chamberlain, and in such a way that
it was certain to cause a eplit in the republi
can party unless the friends of Senator Mor
rill should quietly yield the field to them. If
both sides have subsequently taken under
hand methods of attaining their object, and
have intrigued in an altogether unprecedented
way in their determination to win at all haz
ards, the primary blame ifiust rest upon the
originators of these tactics. The latter are
very fond of attributing the extraordinary
movement to the people as distinguished from
the politicians, but every one knows that this
is merely the ery always raised by the outs
when they wish to become ins. “Principles,”
not “men,” is a motto often adopted by par
ties, and, we lik< to believe, usually acted
upon by the people. This w as really a con
test of personal preference between two good
and deserving candidates, holding to nearly
identical principles, both honored and trusted
by the party; and yet it was waged with a bit
terness and a determination so great that one
wing at least preferred the triumph of the
democrats to defeat by the other wing of the
republican party. The sober second thought
of all republicans will condemn these pecu
liarity* of the canvass now that all the harm
of thr extraordinary escapade is done.
POLITICAL.
Wend' 11 Phillips has accepted the nom
ination for Governor of Massachusetts.
This w ill make the campaign in timt Suite
lively.
Judge Linton Stephens, of Georgia,
brother of Alexander H., has written a
letter, in which he recoin mends the dem
ocrats of Georgia to pay no attention to
the disabilities nets of Congress and to
nominate such nien as they think proper,
without regard to their eligibility or to the
prospect of their admission to seats.
Senator Drake, of Mi.-souri, thinks the
regular Republican ticket will be elected
in Missouri, notwithstanding the dissen
sion iu tile ranks.
FRANCIS SKINNER # CO.
In relation to the failure of this long es
tablished house, considered one of the
soundest in the country, an exchange says:
Within the past year nr two, instead of con
fining themselves to tht-ir legitimate business,
they became infatuated with the Wall street
gambling rings, and to their large operations
and losses there is attributed their failure.
The liabilitief of the firm are estimated (it
#4,400,000, and their assets at *2.500,000.
The principal losers are the New England
manufacturing compauics, whose goods they
»old, the Laconia, Bsppercll, Kaumkeajj,
Hates and Androscoggin Several Boston
banks are also holders of tin ir papt r, as well
a* a number of our Wall strei t banki r*. The
manufacturing companies tic utioned above
arc wealthy, and (lie loss which falls.on them
will not affect them in the least. I fie firm
the past year have not sold the trootls of these
companies, hut have never hech able to liqui
date the sums due on previous sales. The ex
pectation that they would.be able to Ho so has
been entertained till within a short time,
j when their inability was made known.
About a year a«o large quantics of their
paper was floating about Wall street, and sell
ing at a considerable discount, when in order
to save their credit the Uoston hanks
bought it up, and are supposed to be holders
of a large amount of it. None has been of
fered in this market for the past six months,
the last that was negotiated being duly paid.
As the failures of this firm is due entirely to
causes outside their legitimate business, and
as this fact is widely known, the effect on the
market here is not noticeable, ft is thought
in business circles that on the final settlement
the firm will pay about fifty cents on the dollar.
WAR SPRINTERS.
The following is a sample of the stories
which the French, up to the date of the
present war, have been fond of telling
about the Prussians “Always, when the
Prussian troops go into action, there is a
special corps of gens d’armes stationed
behind the lines. Each one of these car
ries in his right hand a carl ine and in his ,
left a sabre, and their duty is to prevent
any man from falling back during the at
tack. Whoever attempts to do so is either
forced into the ranks again or cut down
without mercy. ‘And,’ adds the French
narrator, ‘with the Landwehr this some
what savage custom is a downright neces
sity ; for, as they are either cowards or
heads of families, they are apt to become
panic-stricken and throw down their arms
at the first onset. During the war of 1H06
1 saw scores of such fellows, whom these
gens d’armes had sabered, hanging from
the trees'!”
A correspondent of the New York Post
says: “I am sorry to have to acknowledge
that all through the campaign the French
have acted much more like a conquering
army in a hostile country than the Prus
sians. All the annoyances I have experi
enced personally came .from my own
countrymen; from the peasants who,
above all, saw a spy in every stranger.
When 1 fell into the hands of the Prussians,
I found them courtesy itself. On leaving
Sedan and thence to the frontier, in pass
ing through the Prussian posts, 1 was
stopped often. I had but to say. ‘I am
the correspondent of an American journal,’
and I was at once sent kindly forward.
On the hack of my French military pass
the Prussian staff had endorsed a Prussian
safe-conduct. Often I was not obliged
even to show my papers, my word was
taken; and once out of Sedan 1 was speed
ily through;”
The war correspondent of the Pall Mall
Gazette is not complimentary to the French !
ladies. He says: “Wherever you go,;
over France, the disturbances and the
greatest mischief are done by the ladies.
Tlie greatest panic is spread by them. No
one has ever supposed of MaeMahon that
he was anything else than a brave soldier,
or that he was not a General ready to use
alt imaginable means with the view of ex
terminating the enemy. He passed through
the School of Algeria, and it is certainly
not humanity that one learns there.
French ladies, however, lound that Mac
Mahon was too delicate. There was a
forest somewhere near llagenau or Worth
where 40,000 Germans were reported to
have hidden themselves. IIow far this
was true is not ascertained even now, Vmt
all the Indies, ol Franco reproached Mac
Mahon for not having set fire to the wood
and roasted the whole 40,000 Prussians and
Havarians concealed therein. How was
the wood to be set on fire ? How long
would it take to burn ? How were the
Prussians to he kept in it? Nothing of this
was enquired into, hut the ladies of France
wished the wood to be burned and the
Prussians to be roasted in it. And they
talked so long on the subject that a great
part of the male population of Eastern
France began to repeat the same thing.
I saw lots of young and old women who
had fled from Forbaeh and Saverne, and
all of them described atrocities of the
Prussians which 1 am sure were never
perpetrated (and sufferings of the French j
troops which would not be possible under :
any circumstances whatever.) A few
killed or wounded soldiers raised their
imagination into something quite mon
strous. and in the comparatively quiet
places to which they fled for shelter, |
they spread the unintelligible panic (un- j
der which they themselves labored. ) With
reference to spies, again, the men have ;
never attempted to arrest so great a
number of English, and even French citi
zens as the women have done, and while
the former have invariably insisted upon
a suspicious person beinsr examined as to
his personality, or ejected from the
country, the latter hare constantly
excited the mob by demanding that the
person should be immediately torn to
pieces. In speaking thus, I refer, of
course, more particularly, to the lower
classes of French women ; but in the edu
cated circles things were hardly standing
better. While a few honest and ki»d
hearted ladies did give themselve up to
the hospitals and ambulances, the great
body of them ran cowardly away, think
ing only about carrying with them all the
dresses, the jewelry, and money, they
could possibly scrape together.”
A waterspout was seen ufl Calais lately.
From tlie edge of a tliiek black thunder cloud
two funnel shaped projections were seen to
depend, until they gradually reached the
surface of the sea, tin which they created
a great disturbance, masses of foam rising up
to a considerable height around the foot of
each waterspout. It was calculated that the
long streamers hanging down from the cloud
to the sea were nearly a mile in length. The
wind caused them to wave about gently and
alter their form slightly from time to time.
One of the waterspouts lasted about ten min
utes, and the other about a quarter of an
hour. During this time they moved rapidly
along the sea.

THE
DRY EARTH SYSTEM I
For the Sewage of Towns, Factories,
Hospitals, Prisons, Hotels and
Private Houses.
VMPLK experience has shown the Dry Earth
System to be more efficient in preventing foul
smells, and far less costly in construction and re
pairs than the Water Closet Sy.-tem; and that it is
in all respects entirely satisfactory, whether for the
Sick Room or for constant use.
The Earth Closet offers to all, in town and coun
try, every benefit possessed by the Water Closet, at
far less cost, with the additional advantages, that it
is portable, and can be moved to the bedside in the
sickroom.
It promises more in immunity from offensive
odors, from infection in disease, and in the saving
of fertilizers than has ever been accomplished by j
a single invention.
In the COM MODE, the apparatus ami earth res
ervoir are self-contained, and a movable pail takes j
the place of the vault
For use in Hod Rooms, Hospital Wards. Infirm
aries. Ac . the Commode is invaluable. It is entire- j
ly free from those flint, depressing odors, common *
to portable water closets and niyht stools, and through
its admission one of the greatest miseries of human i
life, the foul smells of the sick room, and one of the
most frequent means of communicating infection,
•max be entirely prevented.
