f In Georgfa we "liave to recount a
ictory for the Liberal ticket so unex
ample.Jaeito take her out of tbe list
of doujSfXul States, and practically to
prououocj to advaace tbe decision of
at least volea in the plectoral
CollogeVj.Tj! this number it is only
necessary . to add sixty votes to elect
Greoley and Urown.
Id Jreoosylvaoia tbe distioeuisbed
Cbairmac of tbe Liberal Committee
bas eloquently characterized the meth
ods by which the result of the election
there mu accomplished. We commend
his stateueut to the thoughtful atten
tion of the country.
Jin Ohio, despite most unprecedented
gains forthe Liberal-Democratic ticket,
the Graat managers have carried the
election by a reduced majority, having
brought to the polls their cotire reserve
vote. Had our Democratic triends in
certain localities of that great common
wealth show the same earnestness and
activity, and enabled us like our eue-
mies to record our entire strength, they
would sow be exulting over a brilliant
victory. In Indiana the Democratic
and Liberal forces have achieved a
most important success over Pennsyl
vania tactics most unscrupulously em
ployed by the Administration and its
allies, showing thus that a free people
when aroused know their rights and
dare maintain them Indiana has fair
ly demonstrated that she can neitbsr be
"bought nor bullied." Tbe moral of
these results is that victory is still in
plain view lor our nati&nal ticket, and
that clergy and courage will assure it,
t-e-Thij victory- must he wan. If we
mean to preserve free institutions ou
ibis continent we must assure it.
r The event in Pennsylvania, on Tue.
day last,' when considered in its causes,
is the most appalling political catastro
phe that has ever taken place in this
country Should the system through
which this catastrophe was brought
about be' condoned by the people and
foisted on the other States, it seals
the doom of freedom in America. A
sad contrast it is surely that the city in
wbicb oo.r republic was born amid tho
anthems ot a Tree people should now be
the first to toll the knell of its liberties.
It is for the free, unbought people of
ajl the States to calmly review the fear
ful crime against sufirjge in Pennsyl,
vania, and to decide whether it shall
be repeated within their own borders
For the first time the system of free
goveriment' and the sanctity of the
ballot pre really on, trial in the United
Statist 'From this hour forward the
preservation of the franchise in its in
tegrity dwarfs all other issues.
Letopr friends in each of the States
catch inspiration from the heroic coo
duct of our fellowiciliaens in Georgia

Thursday, 19Ui The sun 6hone
brightly, I went from the Hospice
along the banks of the Aare, intending
to reach Meiringer in the Ilasli val-
Hey'that' day. For many miles do
houses were to be seen except two
hovels in a lonely place called Kaser
e"k bodeo, the scenery around was
desolate.' Except travelers no living
thing, not even cattle, even birds had
forsaken the place; I fortunately met
a young man (a German) who was at
that time living in Alsaoe. Though
German in his sympathies he did not
give any encouraging account of the
state of . the taritory newly acquired
by ' the Germans. . Tho inhabitants
were hostile to the German governs
ment, be paid they wished to be French
as France had been a sort of step
mother to them in times past. The
mass of thcpeople are without any
advantages, not speakingFrench orGir
man correctly, and without good
schools.! Not long after I met 8' me
4persoos from Alsace who represented
the other romt or view, "the mass ot
the French, peasantry are entirely
without edaeation;" presenting a oon
trasf with the Germans in this respect.
The mistake of France and Napoleon
the III was the beautifying of Paris
instead of strengthening Franc3. I he
voluptuousness of Paris has won it a
gteat' name in tha world, but France
has suddenly fallen.
Beguiling tbe time with such cod-
vrsation we came to Handeck, where
there Is a hotel built of logs, bat still
doiag an important business during
the season. Here are tbe Falls of the
Aare considered utie-urpassed by any
in Switzerland. 'The stream is small,
but the pir-ugfeitmakes is very impress
sing, the bare rocks rise perpendicu-t
larly to a great higbt; the prass and
mam 1 .1
trashes whicn overnang ine precipice
far above tSie faHforiit a pleasing con
trast. 'Some distance farther we came
to a wide spreading plain, the grass of
a jjne color, but huge piles of rock mar
th,e Deanty'or the landscape.
t The villages one meets are tolera
bly large for Switaeiland, but every
thing' fools' piverty-striken. Imboden
and Gutteneu, two villages, are com
posed of Old wooden hou3es with large
fehinglea held in plaoe, not by nails,
but bv rocks placed upon them, the
fta&i fIStJit 5otsliving the houses a,
very strange, appearance. ' Ira tof,
the next village, made a better im
pression ; a good hotel' and. a well
built bridge added much to Us appear
ance. - Here I found V , waiting
for the rest of bis, party," six' besides
himself, a younger brother, his father
and motber and three friends. We
crossed the bridge and asoen4ed, hjl!
called the Kelchet said to. have been
caused by the ploughing of a Glacier
vrhich heaped up rooks and dirt before
it as U pushed its way down into tbe
valley. Descending on the other side
we found ourselves in the Hasli valley
which is "divided by a stream, along
the bank of which appears the neat
white'Diligence road leading to tho
lakes of liriensand Thun (Toon), Mei
ringen we left to our right, aod stop
ped that night at Neichioback; which
lay in our way. -
I have omitted the Gorge of tbe
Aare. Twas very interesting. The
high banks of the Aare in one plnoe

at the top of the mountain when I met
the party of Alsaciens (French) whom
I had seen and been with several

were together. There were of their

two boys and a young lady their chil

We soon came in eight of a groupe
of celebrated peaks. Directly ' before
us rose tbe Wellhorn, a mass of rocks
without grass or snow. To the South
of the Wellhorn somewhat behind it,
rose the Rosenhorn, beautifully man
tled with the purest snow; from the
side of" the Rosenhorn, Rosenloue,
(Roseenalowec) Glacier of remarka

th valley." On the other aide of the
Wellborn (Vellhorn) was the Wetter
horn ( etterhnrn). We went around
these' mountains into a valley and
stopped at a hotel in Black; Forest; (in
the region we were travelling trees are
very scarce, we were most of tbe time
out of the region of lree9 that is too
high for them.) This favored valley
was pleasantly shaded with fine trees.
We came out of tbe forest, or rather

eight or Dine miles to it, the sunlight
passing over the mountains and
through the floating clouds made the
scene varied and lovely ; a large por

dark shade of the mountains whose
summits were covered with clouds. I
never found any scene so lovely. The
Grindelwald Glaciers, the upper and
lower, lay to our left. The upper was

Theniit day, Aug. 17th, we had
iTiuci; the same view, until we crossed
tb,e Little Scheideck and began to de
scend into the Lauterbrumen valley.
This valley ia the most oelebrated
in Switzerland. Lanterbrumen means
"nothing but fountains." Upwards of
seventy streams flow down into the
valley from the high rocky sides of the
surrounding mountains. Among them
is the Staubback. (the name means)
"dust stream" from the fact that the
water in its fall of 980 feet is all bra
ken and entirely changed into spray.
Goethe gives a veiy good descriptiod
of it in these lines;

Masonic Emblems Cannot, be
Used as Trade Marks.
Acting Commiasioaer of Patents,
Thatcher, has rendered a decision, on
an appeal from the decision of the ex
aminers, affirming the action of the
latter ia refusing the registration of a
Masonic symbol as a trade-mark. In
his decision Judge Xhacher says ho
is clearly of the opinion that these
symbols cannot be used as trade
marks and adds:
"Among masons, witb whom this
tokeu has a moral significance, its use
in that capacity would undoubtedly
be regarded as a base prostitution of
it to mercenary purposes, while with
others its mystic force would often
dissipate its virtues as a trade-mark;
and, perhaps, in some instances, place
the article it appeared upon under a
bin. If these trade-marks could be
sanctioned, they would tend (Q defeat
the fundamental object of the trade
mark law, which is an offshoot of the
ancient Maw merchant,' and, like that,
designed to advance trade and manu
factures." A Noble Sentiment.

A Blackmailers' Little Game.
One of the coolest peices of black
mailing rascality that we ever heard
of was attempted last week upon a
young professional gentleman in this
city, who has furnished jbe writer
with the particulars of the case. We
print the story as a warning to other
young men never to notice strange
but gentlemanly fellows they meet in
street cars, and also to show tbean, the
advisability of immediately banding
over to the police any. blackmailing
scoundrels who may endeavor to fright
en theru by similar artificos.
The professional gentleman in ques
tion had been passing the evening
with some friends, and while waiting
for a car at the corner of Sixth avenue
and Twenty-ninth street was accosted
by a prepossessing stranger of about
nineteen years of age. He asked if
tbe cars ran all night, and said he
had just been escorting some ladies
home from Thomas' concert. They
took tbe same car down town and the
nice young man continued the conver
sation he had opened. lie talked very
fluently, was evidently well informed,
claimed relationship with Charles
O'Conor, and, in fact, made himself
generally agreeable. He professed ac
quaintanceship with many of tbe other
young man's friends, and, in fact.

ning the nice young man called, stay
ed but a few minutes, and when he

our 'professional friend. Wben they
were both out on the steps tbe young
rascal unmasked himself, said be was
a professional "bleeder," had served a
term in State Prison for bis offences,
and admitted that his previous story
was entirsly false. Altogether he ex
hibited ao amount of "cheek" that
could not be excelled by the most an

knew the hero of oar story was in no
cent of any charges he might make,
but threatened that if he did not give
up his watch and chain aod twenty
dollars ho would brine alt sorts of
wicked charges against him, would
ruin bis reputation. Three confeda
rates were in waiting a few steps off,
but finding that his threats bad no
effect he joined them, saying h e would
call again. Our hero's mother was
