New Yoi;k, September 17th. — The follow ing was received this morning at the head quarters of the National Democratic Com mittee from Portland : . Returns from 40i towns givo Plaist«<l 70,019,1)a --vU 70.693. Republican majority t>79. There are ES towns and plantations to be heard from yet, which in IS7J ijave 34-2 majority, and will now give more than 1,000. The Kupubliuan papers pretend to claim a majority iiT Davis, and are trying to con fuse the return* to assist attempted f rau but there is no doubt of i'laisted's election. THE "DOCTORLXC" CHABGE. Chicago, September — The Times says of Barnum'd &ccu3ation3 that there was undoubtedly money spent on either side. v As to the alleged " doctoring " of the returns, the Timts' correspondent takes no stock ia it. The country now to be heard from was heavily Greenback — not Democratic— last year, and the Republicans have discussed the financial queotion fully there, and with able speakers. ' The Greenback vote in a large number of smaller towns in the more settled portions of ths State has fallen off consider ably, and there ia no reaiou why, in the nature of tl.ing?, the backwoodsmen should not follow the example set by their most favored citizens. Certain it is that if ■•di.ctoring" is going on, it will be brought io light. Had it been arranged thai- this was to take place, Blaiue and other Repub lican leaders would not have been so hasty in giving up the State last Monday or Tues day. gobham's opixion. Chicago, September 17th. — Gorham, of C difornia, juot , returned from stumping Mtine, was interviewed yesterday. He be lieves the result, although Dot equal to what was expected by the Republican?, would in spire them to work. He ascribed the Repub lican defeat to the lavish expenditure of money by the Democrats, and to the fact that the latter supported the Greenback nominee withcut any assurance from him that he was at all in sympathy with the Democratic party. Plaisted he described as a Republican, who had accepted the Greenback nomination because he felt that he had been slighted in the distribution of officeß in his own party. He felt certain that neither Weaver nor Plaisted would do anything that would be likely to let the Democrats gain any Elec toral vote in Maine, as they both are Repub lican Greenbackers. GBEETISGS BETWEEN CASSEBLT AND HAM COCK. New York, September 17th. — Eugene Casserly of San Francisco telegraphed to General Hancock yesterday : "If Maine U redeemed, a new star in the East shines brightly ; its name is Hancock. ' ' Bayonets ere not fit instruments for collecting free men's votes." Well spoken, high Chief." Hancock, in return, said : "The result on the Atlantic front is very encouraging. May it be equaled at lea^t on the Pacific coast, to which 1 am identified, by early associations, and whose interests I understand, and in any sphere of life would alwaj-? endeavor to pro mote." a . DAVIS STILL GAINING. Portland, September 17th — A dispatch from Fort Fairfield reports the vote of Per ham Islands as follows : Davis 50, Plaiated 24. Last year Davis 5, Fusion 31. It is found in compiling last year's book that 80 of the frittering of last year was stated, but not specified. The missing 80 we ruay have in the present returns. If so, this gain of 20 would overcome the difference between Davis' plurality and the scattering vote, and give him a majority of 5 ; but thn is subject to all errors made in this way of receiving the returns. ADDITIONAL YiaURES. Portland, September 17th.— Four hen. dred and ninety towns give Davis 73,301, Plaisted 72,5«.5, scattering 338. Davis' plu rality, 713. The small towns to be heard from threw last year Davis 40, Fusion 435, scattering SO. Total, 555 — Fusion plurality of 395, which deducted leaves Davis 318 plu rality. THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE HAS A SPASM. New York, September 17th.— The Na tional Democratic Committee has issued the following statemjat relative to the election in Maine : The latest reliable and official returns received from Maine arc, that 42 towns i;iye PlaUted 70,01!), Davis 70,698, a Republican majority of 679. In the same towns in 1878 the opposition vote was 57,499, Republican 72,765, a liepublicaa ma jority of 15,266. The Republican loss in 1830 from tho corresponding: election in 1876 was 14,587. There are fifty-eight towns and plantations yet to be heard from. The relative gain in these towns, as compared with 1576, would give v?, at ■ a low estimate over 1,000 Democratic ma jority.' The Republican manipulators in M:iine are pretending to claim a majority for Davis, and are trying to doctor the returns to bear out liis claim. It remains to bo seen whether they proposo to hegin in Maine to reiniu gurate the frauds of 1876. For two days Blame and the Republican leaders conceded Platsted's election, a3 the Republican party did Tilden's in 1576. The entire machinery for counting the vote is m the hands of a Republican Returninsr Board. Usually in past years it has only required about two days to ascertain the definite results in Maine. This ' year all the first returns showed great Democratic gains,' and it was only when the ' Republican manipulators have stopped the returns coming in, and delayed them until they could be altered, that changes were made in favor of Davis. The county of Kennebec, which usually completes its return in one day, was held - bark until after Thursday, and it is ( peiily asserted by former Republican leaders that the returns are held back for manipulation. Two of the five Con- Ifresstnen— Muich and Ladd— arc conceded. Phil brick, the Democratic cand^dat in Blame's district, (the Third), while actually elected, may be counted out by fraud by a rery small majority (under 100). In tlin First District, Anderson, the Democratic candidate, is practicaliy in the samo p-vsitiou, as the Republicans only claim a majority for Reed of 93, th'mhowiiijj th»t out of fire CuntrrrsjmeD four were elected. Tnis is the best criterion by which to judge the popular sentiment of the State. Plaistcd is clearly elected, and can only ;be defeated by a •■: fraudulent count. The only gains shown by the Republican party, or claimed by them, are in Democratic counties, inaccessible by telegraph and away from the lines of railways. The best evidence of the fnud proposed to be per petrated is the fact that while the Fu«ion ticket sbows large gains all over the State in Republican cities and counties, the Republican gain is claimed in Democratic counties. ,: DAVIS 1 . XLECTION A CF.RTAINTT— COMPLETE BEI'L'BUCAN CONTROL./ . . - .' Apocsta, September 17th. — Senator Blame scut the following telegram to day : ' Acocsta, September 17th. Hon. Marshall Jewell, Chairman of the Republi can National Committee, New York : We have com plete returns, with the exception of a few distant plantations, and I give you a summary of the re sult. In the election of 1579 the Republicans lacked 1,045 votes of a majority. This year we have made trains in twelve counties, held our own ia two oun ties, and in two other counties we have made slight losses. Our net gain in the whole sixteen counties is reckoned at 1.300 as a minimum, with a possible nminmui of 1,600, making Governor Davi.' reelection a certainty no longer ■- denied >by his ■ opponent*. Hij . majority ■; over Plaisted will probably not vary much from 400. - We have chosen three fourths of the »nnty officers, more than two thirds of . the State Senate, and a large majority of the House of Representatives— yivintf us complete control of the State G>»ernment in all iv branches. Our only rejrret is our failure to rcjnin the Fourth an 1 Fifth C oiigressinnil Districts. We succeeded in reducing' the majority in each to about one-third of the Fusion majority of two years a^o, but the Democratic alarm over the result in Ver mont caused the applicition of arguments in both districts during last week which we cooM not meet. ; J. O. BLAINE. : Imiurnge Bcpubllcan Meeting— Speech or ■•' ,'■■: ."■-':': Senator Conkllng. i New York, September 17th.— The Acad emy of Musi.- wa» crowded to ov rfl wing to- Dijht, .on ; the ~ occasion of , the ' .Republican' ' >■'•."■ - ' • ... ■ ... ' v . .-. ■■ -• f ./ - ■ . * . . . mass meeting, and the police were obliged to close the doors to keep the throng from over crowding the : corridor.' Thousands went away, unable to gain admittance. On the stage svniorir the prominent men were Hon. K. Pierrepont, Judge Cowan, Gei). A. McCook. Postmaster James, Collector Merritt. Gen eral Graham, General Carr. Hon. Thurlow Weed and others. . About 7 o'clock Governor Cornell ' entered the Academy, and was es corted to a private box a-nid \ three cheers. General Arthur and Hon. James A. Varcum accompanied the Governor. Shortly before 8 Senator Conkling arrived, accompanied by Hon. Hamilton Kisb, Hon. Lloyd Aspinwall, Hon. . John ' Jay, : ex Governor Denison of Ohio, and Hon. I.cvi P. Morton, and as the party advanced upon the stage simultaneous cheers were iriven from all over the house, and handkerchiefs and hats were waived in the air. The ; excitement Subsiding, . Aspinwall ad vanced to the footlights, ard said he had been requested to open the meeting by read ing ft letter from Gen. Grant. [Great applause.] [Note.— This letter has been published be fore.] Hon. Hamilton Fish was elected Chair mac, and in a brief , speech introduced Senator Conkling, who^ was greeted with cheer upon cheer as he came forward. NswYokk, September 17th. — In Senator Conkling's speech to-night, after an eloquent allution to the grandeur and blessings of the Republic, he said : Tho general isfue con fronting us is in itself, and in its bearing?, sectional. Would that it were not so, but it ia so. In twelve : States of the Union the approaching election is to be no more than a farce, unles*, as his sometimes happened, it be turned into a tragedy. In several South ern States there is a Republican majority, but all the Southern States alike, without exception or without doubt, are • relied on to count up on the Democratic side and ecore 13S electoral votes. There ia to .be- no free debate, no equal riahte, no trU9 expression, ami yet he who discusses these question* must be told in the coarse parlance of to-day that he "waves the b'.o.xly shirt." The Senator denounced the proposed cjunt in sotnn Southern States founded on the . last census, and than r-aJ General Grant's recent letter, in which ho says: "The Democratic party as now con stituted and' controlled is not a fit party to trust with tha control of the General Gov ernment." The South controls the Derm cratic party, and in Congress the Southern members hold absolute sway. Should a con troversy trise regarding the Presidential election, and the election be thrown into the Hou3e, : and a vote being taken by States, the South would . cast nearly all the Democratic vote, and in the Senate the vote for President would | come from the samesource. In every event of Democratic success, the Southern ci.'l of the Democratic party must be to tb I Northern end as the locomotive i* to the tender. The South has control of all the working committees of the Senate. On every committee there is a ma jority of Democrat', and of these the major ity ia all cases consists of Southern Senatois. The tame conditions prevail in tha Houte. There are forty-two committees. The chair men of twenty-two are from the South. All the committees are so constituted that the majority is Democratic, and of the majority more . than half ; is Southern. During the two years while this absolute power in both houses has been so lodged, the existence of the veto power and the approach of the Presidential canvass have suggested urgent reasons for " going slow." Many expected bills have not ■ been introduced ; many that have been introduced have not been pressed ; some that have been pressed have run against such obstinate opposition as to secure their present postponement or some modification. But whenever the hour strikes that the veto power is in Democratic hands, put there by the Southern vote, whate/er solid caucus de crees will be written that caucus will be controlled by those who represent by less than one-seventh of the people of the Union, and more than one-fourteenth of the produc ing, commercial, industrial, tax-paying and property interests of the country. The Senator read the official figures of the Bureau of Statistics to prove this assertion, and said these facts are not recited with pleasure, but with deep regret. The broad issue at this election is whether our colossal fabric, commercial, industrial and financial interests, shall be under the management and protection of those of Democratic ascend ency in nil branches of the Government. This is deeper-rooted than any meas ure within the scope of existing pub lic questions. Statesmen abroad talk of the balance of power and of changing the map of Kuropa. These sayings mean not much more than might easily occur here, without violating the Constitution or tran- Bcending the usages of the Republic. At least seven new States could be brought in, and in the ease of some of them a very plausi ble case could be made. The project would become a high party measure. Ita success would assure a complete Democratic ascend ency in the nation for a generation. At least it would put the Government not mere ly in the hands of the Democratic party, but of the Southern Democratic party, with Courts revolutionized to conform to iv reactionary notions and dogmas, pre judices and interests. What may, be the fate of the questions affecting commerce among the several States, the revenue, bank and legal tender currency, taxation of Gov ernment currency, in which these bonds are payable, civil rights act?, claims growing out of the war, claims for refunding the war tax on cotton, the late amendments, and many other grave matters, no man can : predict. Meanwhile the army has been reduced to a skeleton, and whenever a tcare, pretense or shriek of war on Mexicj's border or elsewhere can be discovered or invented, the army ivust be increased and filled up. By whom ? That depends on the approaching election. If Garfield and Arthur are chosen, by Union men — men always for the Union to the core. If Hancock and English, and the Democratic party get in, by the men = " who went with their States." The present tariff and revenue laws are deemed very bad by the dominant element of the Democracy. They want to change them. They will change them readily whenever the way is clear. There is a whisky rebellion now in seveial States, . and the officers of law are powerless to suppress it. Recently a warrant was issued for the arrest of one Peuton. A Deputy Marshal went with a posse to execute the warrant. In his report to the Marshal he says that Peuton assem bled from 25 to 50 armed men, and set him and the law at defiance. When cautioned to desist, • Penton replied, "When Hancock is elected this damn foolishness will stop." The amendments to the Constitution were constantly and flagrantly defied in more than half the Democratic States, and should these laws be swept away and the spirit which assails them in the South, and which called them into beiag,contiuue to rage, mildew will follow in the wake. The national banking system has been stiuck wherever a blow could be put in. ■_/■' In regard to the assertion that the Southern war claims are barred by the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, Conkling said: "There can be no doubt the way is wide open to all Southern claims which a ma jority can be found to vote for and a Presi dent to sign.'' Bitter Factional Flgbt Between <.<or..ia - Democrats. Washington, '■ September 17th. — .ludge Lochrane, of Georgia, " has just returned from that State, and represents the pending contest , between the Colquitt and Norwood factions as the most bitter that has ever been known in Georgia.* He »ay 3 there can be no reconciliation between the t« o factions. At recent meetings at Macon, at which Colquitt and Norwood were announced for a joint dis cussion, the crowd hooted and yglled at the Governor, preventing him '<; from speaking more than fifteen minutes of the two hours allotted to him. Norwood was listened to with but very little interruption at the pub lic meeting recently held at Columbus. ' . Ex- Senator Gordon was also howled down by the crowd. Lochrane further says that the scan dals of Colquitt's admistration, and his ap pointment of Brown to the United States Senate to succeed Gordon, form the issue in the campaign.' '■ He , believes that the con test between the Democratic factions will be continued after the pending election, and they will never again act in harmony. Loch rane thinks Colquitt will be re-elected by a ■mall majority, as he will get the larger pro portion of the Republican vote. The Trotting of Mnnd 8. Compared with that or M. Jnllen. Chicago, September 17th.— The Times gays of Maud S.s trot j yesterday : r Aside from the comparative excellence, there are several reasons why it was positively the best performance for parts of a mile. .

'When St. Julicu made hu record at Hartford he covered the first three quarter^ of a mile in I:3S}. At Minoeorx \U ho trotted the three quarters in 1:37 i, and it remained for the mare to cut three-fourths of • pecond from it by doing the distance in l:ot'.J. - It peeiiis a great pity that havir., beaten the records at the poets* all around cept the first, she could have just failed to win the crown by smashing the time-pieces. Baring in Chicago. Chicago, September 17th. — the Jockey Club Park the pacing race was the most in teresting event of the day, ; the famous " pacing qnartete" appearing in a race for a purse of $10,000. Some very fast quarters were made, Mattie Hunter and Lucy making the third quarter of the first heat in 32 »c --onds — a 2:OS gait. The race was driven for all there was in the horses, and was thoroueh ly enjoyable. Time, 2:15J— 2:18— 2:10— George Sprague, a five-year-old, weighing nearly 1,300 pound*, was «ent a full mile for the first time in 2:23.

Boston, September — The weather in beautiful, and the streets through which the procession is to pass and the adjacent thoroughfares are so crowded that it is diffi cult to move on them. Business is entirely suspended, and there is every indication that memorable Bunker Hill celebration three years ago will be , dwarfed when compared with to-day's event. The literary portion of the celebration was held in the Old South Church at 9 o'clock.
