Nut loug ago there were l? muii hurled in the "Co." of the bp*,, concern. The world saw only the name of Lewis Baker & Co., but behind the "St Co." stood the bono and line* of iho partnership.

II a man Is in the mercantile business either as the head of a firm or the "Co." of it, lie is, wo presume, a merchant 1 ill the Mine. Since the RnjUlrr was ao anxious to dia- 1 credit the list of names referred to, it 1 should have invested a few dollars In telegnphing to Sullivan, to some honest Dem- ' ocrtt, and discover whether or not thesigniturej were really those of genuine re- 1 jpectahle and responsible persons, who ?eie ?hat they purported to be. ' Ocu specials from Columbus, Cincinnati tnd Cleveland this morning, express the feeling* ami opinions of intelligent Re- 1 publicans at those points as to the likelihoods of the gteat contest in Ohio to-day. We can add but little to these advices. All we can Bay is that from near by and far off comes the same story of Republican confidence in a Republican victory to-day. The more careful and conservative generally put Foster's majority at 15,000. All the estimates are, of course, largely guess work. Ciptain Danford, who is a careful political calculator, and who has traversed a large portion of the State, sets his estimate at about 15,000. There are others, however, more sanguine, who go as high as 20,000 to 23.000. There will bo a im at deal of nnxiotv throughout the country to hear the news from Ohio to-night. There will be various points in this city to which the wires will ! carry the news direct. This will relieve the newspapers to a very considerable extent, and permit them to proceed with wore satisfaction in the work of preparing the returns for the general public next morning. We expect very full news at this office up to the latest hour of tho morning, and whether good or bad, from our itAndpoint, shall serve them up in as intelligible 8hupe as possible to our readers. The Genuine Republican flute nnd CounI) Tick* I Over In Ilelmont To*Mny. All election tickets must be printed on white newspaper, and the names of the various candidates must be a quarter of an inch apart. All orasures must be j plainly made with a pen or lead pencil. Look out for tickets with the name of David A. Uollingsworth, the Republican candidate for Senator, crossed with marks such as the hack of a knife might make. This is a trick, and ia intended to beguile the unwary into voting a ticket over which , a dispute will arise, and which may be thrown out. The marks are visible on the , . hack of the ticket as well as over the name. /Therefore examine your tickets , before voting them.

All over the State are to bo found Democrats who will vote for Foatui because they have no confidence in ?wi ug's financial theories. Then, too, the Democrats in the extra session of Congress manifested such an intense desire to do away with the results of the war that the peo pie of Ohio, always intensely loyal, have J revolted against the party.

Cleveland "Leader" Office, i October 13?10 r. m. j Special to tbe Intelligencer. ^ All indications up to this hour (oiecast a Bquare and definite Republican victory in this flection ol Ohio to-morrow. The canvass on both sides has been most vigorously carried on, and is still going on this t evening. Foster was here Saturday r.ight, | accompanied by Garfield, and the effect i hasbeen buoyanton Republican prospects, i Cuyahoga county will roll up over 4,000 1 majority for Foster. A. great many who 1 vntnri with thA Nntlnnnln loflt fall will min- * j port Foster now. The change in liusi- , ness prospects has helped the Republic- I ans. Persons who left the fold under i,tre?a 1 ofbardtlmts have returned to their nat- , ural afDllatinns.once more. The counties of Lake, Geauga, Lorain, Mahoning, < Trumbull and ABhlatubla will givo larger j majorities than they have given for years, i and the whole Beserve will do only what 1 it does on great and momentous occasions, come out with its whole vote. The oxtra session of Congress, coupled with the ac- < tion of loading Southern Democrats, has aroused in this section all of the old war spirit, and its effects will be seen. Looked at from tho standpoint of this region, Foster will have at least 111,000 majority, and no one need bo surprised if it is twice that figure. Much however depends'on the position taken by the Nationals and the amount of scratching done by tho bard money Democrats. In the mining regions Ewing will be greatly scratched, both on account of his support of Mino Inspector Poston, and his vote for tho Wood tariffbill. Contrary to the calculations of some, tho soldiers of Northern Ohio at least will not voto for Ewing, but will do as they have generally done in tie past, vote the square Republican ticket. A certain and possibly a very large victory can be counted on for Republicanism to-morrow. Lkadsh. The Outlook nt NtenbcnTllIe. Siwdil to tho InUUlseacer. . STiunisriLLK, October 13,0:45 r. u.

Columbcs, October 12.?A careful canvass of fifty-four counties of- the'slate shows a net Bepublioan gain ol 14,500. These counties are the only ones which have so far presented complete returns of their counties. In other counties not yet reported there are indications of large gains corresponding with those reported. So far aa heard from, the Democrats do not report gainB iua single county. Gains are hoped (or In some counties trom the Greenback, but no figures are presented bowing that any have yet been made. Columbus, October 12?11:30 r. At this hour, 10:30, all the reports from the State are ol the most encouraging character. The canvassers ol (our mora counties have been hoard (rom, and these Increase tlio Republican gtln 000 over (he previous estimate. There is nothing to fear (rom any caiiBe except the Imported votes. These will be attempted to a large extent in Democratic |y?clncls where there are no Republican judges, and will bo pushed just aa far as possible by repeating in the cities, l'resent reporla Indicate that there are not less than 1,000 fraudulent voters now In the State, each one >f whom may be able to repeat his vote trom two to ten times. The prevention it this vote will require the utmost vigianco and the most extreme measureeln ;ho cities and the large Democratic pronncta of tho clote counties. The Democratic canvass of the Stato Is ioi encouraging lor inetrucicoi. insevjral of the close counties, such as Frankin, Madison, Noble and Belmont, the Democrats are seeking to make up for heir losses by importation. A large num>er of imported repeaters have been spoted here in Columbus, and exciting times nay be expected at some of the polling ilaces. Dr. Quinn's cargo of repeaters, mported into Madison county on Friday ast, wore spotted before they reached Jolumbua. When they alighted at Lonion and West Jo (Tenon Depot, they were net by a committee of Republicans, who ipottcd each of them, and have been on heir trail ever since, very much to the liscomiiture of Quinn, Democratic candilate ior Representative, who took the relators in charge directly on their arrival. L'hey are now scattered principally in )eercreek township, which is strongly Democratic, and which has none but Democratic officials at the polls. Trace is ilso being kept of those imported into table and Belmont. General John Beatty, who returned lome to-day from au extended tour of the state, predicts a much larger vote this 'ear in Ohio than was polled at the last 'residential election. He says that in all lis travels over this State ho has found no Republicans who will not vote the ticket, >ut lluds, on the contrary, that a great nany Prohibitionists, Greeubackers and Democrats will vote it. He does not be ieve that Foster's majority will fall below 10,000. From present indications the total vote if the State will be little, if auy, less than 175,000, and probably not leas than 680,000. The success of the Republican ticket in tfadison, Noble, Belmont, Muskingum, ran Wert, and some other counties we jould name, will depend entirely upon he vigilance, zeal and firmness of the Republicans themselves. If the coming election is not wurth a whole day's work >y every Republican, the Republicans hen deserve to be subject to such infauous rule as that existing in Builer, jicking, Fairfield, Darke, Shelby and dny ither counties controlled by the Democaey. lion. Channing Richards arrived, hero rom a week's campaigning iu Belmont :ounty. Ho reports the Republicans conIdent and enthusiastic. The only fears intertained there are ov?r the streugth of he imported voters employed in building he Tuscarawas Valley Railroad. The men rero brought into the countv a little over wo weeks ago, und since that time have leen working in two or three different ownships, and at no time loug enough to laim a residence in either. Of course lone are legal voters, but apprehensions ire felt that from their numbers and the pint of their bosses, their votes will be oreed upon the county. One of the josses in speaking to some Republicans, >f his intentions, plainly declared that le intended to Tote every one of them. for by , Ewing'a got to be elected r n the event of his being able to force heir votes in, tho question of success in ielmont couuty will depend ouly upon vhether tho Iiepubtican gains will be arge enough to overcame the fraudulent rote. _ YELLOW FEVER.

From tliera I learn the following, particulars: General Merrill advanced upon the agency on the 11th last On his way ho found many dead bodies, nnd among othen the body of Carl Goldstein,an Israelite, who left here with Government supplies for the Utes at White Bivor agency. He was found in a gulch six miles this side of the agency shot twice through the shoulder, lie was about two miles from his wagons. A teamster named Julius Moore, formerly i irom uainnriage, mow., wno was wan i him when he left here, wu found about i hundred yards from Goldstein, two bullet holes in his breast and badly hacked 1 and mutilated with a knife or hatchet. | As the command advanced through the j canyon they came to an old coal mine. In it was found the dead body of an agency < employe named Droaser. Ho lmd evf- , dently been wounded and crawled in the , mine to die. His coat was folded un and , placed under his head for a pillow. Beside < him lav a Winchester rifle containing eight . cartridges. In one of his pockets a letter was found, which, as near as the courier .could remember, was u follows: White Rivkr, September 29,1 r. m. i Major Thornburg: I I will come with Chief Douglas and another chief and meet you to-morrow. 1 Everything is quiet here and Douglas Is 1 flying tho United Slates flag.

Mskler, Indian Agent. On entering the agency a scene of jjreat desolation presented itself. All the buildings excepting one were burned to the ground and not a living thing in sight except the command. The Indiana had taken everything excepting the fiour and decamped. The women and children were missing and nothing whatever could be found to indicate what had becomo of them. They either have been murdered and buried or else taken away as hostages. Their dreadful and unmentionable fate calls forth the most profound sympathy. The (Tead body of Father Meeker was found about 100 yards from his house, lying on his back, Bhot through the nead, the left side of the head mashed in with some blunt instrument, a piece of barrel stave driven into the mouth and one of his hands and arms badly burned. The dead body of VV. H. Post, Fathor Meeker's assistant, was found between the building and the river, with a bullet hole through the left ear and one under the ear. He and Father Meeker were stripped naked. Another employe named Laton was found dead, stripped naked and a bundlo of paper bags in his arms. His faco was badly eaten by wolves and there was a bullet hole in the left breast, Frank Dresser, a brother of the man found in a coal mine, r was found badly burned. He had with- L out doubt been killed instantly, as a bullet * 1,^.1 roo?n.l .U- u u:_ 1 4. mu_ 1 ?! * muu woooeu buiuugu uis licttrt. j.i1u uuu1cb j. of Luton, Thompson, Price Eakridge and all other employes not named were also i found.

He was shot through the forehead. From this it appears that the Indians are not alone in their hellish work. The supposition is that the Indians have gone South to join the Southern Utes. The impression among the officers of Merritt's command is that the Indians who fought Thornburg numbered at least 700. THE UTE INDIANS. Chief Ouray and HIn Folio worn Sue for i Peace.

The Old Story that Needs No Embellishment ?Mary Anderson Unconsciously the Alleged Cause of the Shooting. Cincinnati, October 13. -Yeslorday afternoon, a few minutes after three o'clock, Florence McDonald, a young woman who had sustained illicit relations with Sylvester M. Ulckey, ono of tho managers of Miss Mary Anderson, tho tragedienne,, iliot him in the ladies' reception-room ot die Gurnet House, and then, believing lim to be dying, put tho weapon to her )wn head aud sent a bullet crashing hrough her brain and ended her misera)lelifo. Such is the history of tho case t *1 hrtaf. Tta full ?lnluila tv/utl/l All ? Knnl? Hickey is a resident of Syracuso, Now fork, and has managed a theatrical cJr:uit thereabouts for several seasons quite luccessfully. Miss Anderson, having tlayed several engagements under hi* iuspices with profit to herself, consented o play this season under his management md that of John W. Norton. While in Syracuse Hickey formed the icqualntance of Miss McDonald, and the esult was an illicit intimacy that hits con inued ever since, thoNgh of late he, havng higher and moro honorable aspiraions, endeavored to discontinue his rela ions with her. The girl, who loved him vith a blind idolatry and to madnest*. efusod to be cast aside, and has followed lim about this summer as pertinaciously a fate. As an avenging Nemesis who ur ived in this city early last week, and hough she visited Pike's Opera House nd saw llickey from a distance, it doe* lot appear that ho was aware of her iresence in the city until yesterday, when he sent twice to the Burnet House and 9ft notes for him. Mr. Hickey attended High Mass at the lathedral yesterday morning, and wan no? a the hotel when the first note arrived. Lfter attending church he met a journalitic friend and accompanied him to the Ughland House, where they remained ntil about half-past two o'clock. Then tiey came down into the city, Mr. Hickey oing to the Burnet House aud the scribe > his home. Arriving at the hotel he )und the notes; the last one being handed im by a District Telegraph boy, who rho waited for an answer, Miss McDonId awaiting it at the the telegraph office, lickey tore the notes up, aud told the oy thero was no answer to them. The lessenger so reported to Miss McDonald, rho then started down to the hotel aud 11. wwuimuuiwiio Willi rilVKCy * nd he met her in the reception-room bout 3 o clock. When they met they seem a 5 have done so amicably, for they v ccupied the same "sociable" together, 11 he Bitting at hia right Bide, and were ' een in earnest though not unfriendly r on verse by one of the porters ol the * louse. A gentleman who saw them a few ? ainntes later states that the woman had ^ aft the sociable, aud was sitting to the " 3ft of Ilickey ou a chair, which wo* 1 xawn up close to the end of a sufa. Tim 1 arty states that he overheard a portion of * heir conversation. Miss McDonald wa* aiploring Hickey not to cast her olT from us heart, in the most pitiful tones, while d le was endeavoring to explain to her that t was better for both of theui-nay, abso- 1 utely necessary?that they should part; nd hf? flirt hor tr.1.1 1. ...

The ! iroinan pleaded against this determina- 1 ion with all the eloquence of words and * ears, but liickey appeared to bo inflexible 1 a his determination. At last she seemed to bow to his resolu- t ion, saying, "Well, if it must be bo, give t ne money enough to pay my way home." ^ lickey at the time was leaning over the ofa with his face to her. He seemed re- ( ieved to hear her ask for the money, and le straightened up and put his hand in his j >ants pocket to get it for her. As he did 5 10 his face was turned from her for a mo- ( nent. It was the moment for which she . tad waited, and just as he extricated his laud from bis pocket she drew a revolver rom the folds of her dress and. placing the 1 nuzzle within a foot of his head, pulled | he trigger. The ball struck him above he ear. and he sprang to his feet and then ell on his hands and knees on the floor. ' Hie stood up as she tired, and then J he discharged the pistol a second and a ( hird timo at him. hnuha ahnta ...s.i.. if thoir mark. As she tired tho pistol he third time she let it full to the floor, iiekey crawled Out to the hallway cryngout, "For God's sake, take her away; ake her away." The porter of the house vas in the hallway when the shots were ( Ired, and seeing I Iiekey crawling out all i lovered with blood, ran into the room, i le saw Miss McDonald wringing her lands iu a dazed sort of manner amid the t itnoke of tho weapon. As soon as she j law him she took a step forward, pick- j id up the pistol, and placing it to her i lead, fired a ball into her brain. With- i >ut a groan she fell to tho floor just in i ront of the fire place, the blood from her i ivound crimsoning her face and neck. Dr. I iirunning, who is a boarder in the Iiouho, i lad just finished his dinner, and was i passing through the hallway when he f aeard the shots fired, lie helped Mickey I o his feet and had him conveyed to his ( room. No. 105, when messengers were ( lispatched to St. Xavier's Church for a I priest, it being thought that he was dying. I Father Chambers soon arrived and ad- i ministered the rites of tho Catholic 1 Jhurch to his penitent. Before hear- < rived, however, Hickey, who is possessed i af some means, made his will and devised i bis property to his brother and sister, who < live in Syracuse. It was soon found that tie was in no immediate datigor of death, : md Dr. Brunning returned to the recep- ! tion room, where Miss McDonald lay unconscious, breathing stentoriously. The lietuu ruiutj who uircauv m uiu poor woman's throat when the doctor entered the room. She never spoke after tiring the fatal shot, and died at twenty minutes to four o'clock. Coroner Oarrlck arrived at the hotel a few momenta after the death of Miss McDonald, and searched her clothing for evidences of her identity. 8ho was plainly dressed in a neatly-made black meriuo, and wore a heavy plaited chain as an ornament. In the bosom of her dress was found a two-ounce vial of laudanum, the label of which sho ?ed that it had been purchased at No. 311 State street, Buffalo. In one of her stocking* was found a flue ivory-hllted dirk, on the blade of which was engraved "Florence." In her dress pocket the Corouer found a gilt-edged diary, with a black morocco flexible cover. The diary contained 'voluminous notes on ber life and a faithful r?i>nr<l nf hnr movements from the time she left home until the fatal meeting with Hickey. The pistol used by Miss McDonald in of French manufacture, and is of the needle-gun pattern, its cartridges being discharged by its hammer striking on a needle or projecting nipple, instead of on the bane of the cartridge. Its calibre is 33, though it ia much smaller in size than American weapons of the same force. A reporter called on Miss Mary Anderson, and alluded to the diary of the dead woman, in which it was hinted that Hickey had*an aflection for her, and a?k?d lor her Btorv.

She felt terribly annoyed at the coupling of hor daughter's name with the matter; nut knowing that it could uot be helped, bowed to the inevitable.

Not ii.ni we have the slightest fear of her falling in love, but In order to prevent there lelng the slightest chance for talk of any kind."

Y., October 12.?The re- 1 )ort that Florence McDonald, of this city, 1 lad shot the well known theatrical maniger, S. M. Hickey, also of this city, ere- ' ited intense excitement in Syracuse to- J light. Both parties are well known in iyracuso, and the girl has for six years 1 )eon ono of the most noted women of the I own. Her right name was Florence 1 smith. Her parents formerly resided in < iyracuse. Her fathor kept a corn-bulling istablishment in this city. Six years ago Florence was sent to school at ho convent o( the Good Sheplerd, in Buffalo. She was a wild ' iiid wayward fgirl, and had given j lur purenis a goou aeai ot trouble. After 1 omaiiiiug in tfio convent a short time she reaped and ran away and went to Canada. While thero she made the ac- 1 [iiuintance of a conductor on the Pullman j iars between Buffalo and Toronto by the tame of McDonald. She became infatuat- ' id with him, and lived with him for some j inje. She afterward returned to her J tarents in Syracuse. They remonstrated ] rith her on her wayward lif?, and per- 1 uaded her to return to the convent in iuffalo, which she finally did. She stayed here, however, but a short time and reuracil to Syracuse. Her father then ut- j erly repudiated her. and, casting off all , tttanpLs at concealing her trade, she ( ipenly entered a house of ill-fame. For t wo years she was a woman of the town, i nd became notorious on account of her < ppearance and her lady-like bearing. She van always dressed in a neat and modest uanner, and comported herself modestly. I year ago last Thanksgiving she lirat nude the acquaintance of Mr. Hickey. 1 She was boarding at the Cheesboro House, ' tti East Genesee street, opposite Park < )pera House. George Rignold played ' ' (lenry V." at Hickey's Opera House, and ? he stage manager engaged her as ono of * he ballet. It was qn this occasion that floreuce first met Mr. Hickey, and she at nice became enamored of him. She folowed him everywhere, and continually logged his footsteps. Hickey endeavored in frequent occasions to get rid of her, >ut without avail. , New York, October 12.?Much interest , s felt here anionic actors and others n the Hickey shooting. Ho is well known 1 n this city, although his head quarters 1 vera at Syracuse. Last summer he lived it Long branch, where Miss Anderson oc:u uied a cottage with her mother and stepatner, Dr. Griffin. While there he made he bargain to take her on a professional t our in the West, in partnership with John , IV. Norton, the actor and manager. Inqui- . y among stage acquaintances of Miss Anlerson and Mr. Hickey m this citv this 1 ivening "elecited a unanimous opinion that le is not a suitor for her hand. Nothing , n their demeanor, so say thoBe who have leen them together, indicated that either me was in love with the other. 1 Iiickey has not been the best tempered I nan in the world, and is not overly be* ovud in the theatrical world. Last week 10 instigated Dr. Griffin, the stepfather of 1 Wins Anderson, to make an attack on John P. Smith, an account of which appeared iu theso columns. During thp dimmer ho had trouble with Georce Faw- 1 :ett Rown and drew a pistol on b!m, but lid not use it.

The Jbgistcr'a locals of Monday stated several things about Solomon Hoge, the Republican candidate for Representative, that are not true, Uo is not vice-presiient of a National bank, the kind opposed by the Democrats, but of a private bank in Somerton?the Belmont Bank. G. II. Atchison, the Democratic nominee, on the contrary, is director of a National bank. Mr. Hoge was also stated to have obtained the road tax of the bank and Klven it out at ninety cents a day. That is not true either. Mr. Hoge is engaged extensively in the tobacco business in Bomerton and pays his employes liberally. The School Board is now looking after the Sunday schools that have been meeting in the Gravel Hill and lower town BChool houses. The Question is as yet undecided, but one of the Sunday schools has taken its seats out in anticipation of the result. One of the reasons iriven for refusing these schools the use of the rooms is that the regular janitors quarrel with the Sunday janitors. On Gravel Hill, for instance, Mr. Nicholson, the regular janitor, quarrels with himself, the Sunday janitor. Miss Emma Gorby has returned home after a prolonged visit. Rev.
