Since our lust issue the State elec tion has been held in Ohio, and the result wfiB a Republican victory by a plurality of over 17,000 votes. If this were the presidential year, this defeat of the Democratic party would be of some significance, as indicating the popularity or unpopularity of President Cleveland's administration As it is, however, the off year in poli tics, Ohio has simply returned to the mire of republicanism. And now that this agony is over, all eyes are direct ed to New York ; and upon the pros p?eta lhere, the New York Sun speaks aa follows: " Now that the Ohio election is over and its effect upon the minds of our citi&onB has been produced, we are oil prepared to take a distinct and satis factory view of the prospect here in New York. "We know that the Democratic ticket headed by Hill and Jones ought to be elected, and we believe that it will be. The reasons for this faith are simple and cogent. " The Democracy of this State is thoroughly united. There is no fae ticus quarrel which diminishes the Democratic vote. That vast number of citizens who last fall voted for Blaine, have come back, and are among the most enthusiastic support crs of Hill and Jones. This is a fact of the highest moment. " Moreover, a great service has been rendered to Governor Hill by the ut tacks which his enemies have now made. They have accused him of having had discreditable dealings with Hr. Tweed some fifteen years ago, and a great display of illusive evidence has been made to sustain this accusation. Only yesterday a num ber of journals that oppose his elec tion devoted a great portion of their space to fae similes ot checks and re ceipts which are supposed to support it. A more extravagant, malicious, and unjustifiable assault was nev r mads upon the good name of a public officer. There is nothing in Mr. Hill's history, either fifteen years ago or since, which should lead any patriotic citizen to withhold his friendship from bim. There were many men, Republicans as well as well aa Demo crats, whom, in the days of his power, Mr. Tweed was wont to use for bi? own purposes ; bat henever used Mr. Hill. As a member of the Democrat ic party Hill supported those meas ures which. the. party deemed wi-e and necessary ; and among them there were at times measures which Mr. Tweed favored and desired; but in all of these cases there is not a single instance in which Mr. Hill acted from a corrupt motive, or supported any measure of Tweed's for any other rea BO'E (?han hie own conviction that it was for the public interest. This is demonstrated by a careful study of bia whole record ; and the people who really look into these things are sure to be convinced of il. The reaction from this attempt of .his enemies will undoubtedly prove of very great ad vantage to Mr. Hill. In fact, it forms one of the reasons why we expect his election."

They who are not willing to assent to this, for the sake of maintaining the dignity of the of fice and of keepingit beyond reproach, are not likely to>be nominated by a Democratic Convention. We say fur ther that, while, the objections are not of the same elliss, we think it unwise and ill-judged for Senator Butler to take part in the defence of the Edge dc ld prisoners, or ol any other per sons accused of violating the criminal laws of the State. It is ai?aost im possible for jurors to avoid being in fluenced by their knowledge and ap predation of Gen. Butler's position, and that influence and position should not be cast into the seule either in fa vor of a criminal or against him." Still Another State Ticket. Columbia Cor. A wjusta Chronicle. COLUMBIA, Oct. 17.-The tempora ry suspension of the "new deal" cry does not prevent political predictions of future results. The following tick et is said to be among the possibi!: ties: Governor, Hon. John Peter Rich ardson; Lieutenant Governor, Hon. D. S. Henderson ; Secretary of State., Hon. J. N. Lipscomb; State Treasu rer, Hon. W. C. Coker; Comptroller General, Hon. W. E. Stoney ; Attor ney General, Hon. Stonyarm Wiluon; Adjutant and Inspector-General, A. M.Manigault; Superintendent of Ed ucation, Hon. A. Coward. Rumors are afloat in some political circles that a foreign mission will be tendered a prominent South Carolinian at an early day, and that this appointment will result in the promotion of others now holding high and responsible State positions. This inlormation comes so direct and from so reliables source that I am almost tempted to name the positions and the men, but I have learned from experience that it is better to withhold names when there ia any doubt of the correctness of the information, and, as I have not been able to have those rumors con firmed, I only mention them in agen eral way.

Xh.apeaki'ng ol' thV "results of the Ohio election, tho News and Courier consid?ra it a "neede'd-Jeesoiu- -The election waa peculiar in two respects : Colored votera in large numbors voted the Democratic ticket, and Prohibi tionists and Germans in large num bers voted for the T ublican candi dates. 3 This is . og the usual order of thinga, . i . uhe North, the white vote ia more important by far than the colored vote, and the new recruits were not sufficient to count erbalance the loases by change of front. There wag a confident expecta tion that the Prohibitionists who ab stained from voting for Dr. Leonard would join the democrats by way of avenging themselves upon the Repub licans. The calculators were at fault, however, and, in spite of the heavi ness of the Prohibition vote, which was expected to be drawn mainly from the Republican ranks, the Demo crats were unsuccessful. There will be no lack of explana tions and excuses. The weather will come in for a part of the blame, and the lavish use oi money by the Re publicans will be alluded to in no gentle termB. But the Democrats are usually readier to brave the weather than the Republicans are, and the Democrats, it must be confessed, uso at elections as many dollars-silver or otherwise-aa they can beg or bor row. The ruddy tinge imparted to the canvass by Mr. Sherman was not sufficient to color the result. There is something beyond and behind these things, and it is wisest to state it frankly in order that the rock ahead may be avoided at luture elections Our conviction ip that the Democrats were defeated in Ohio because, in the opinion of the voters, they did not deserve to be continued in power. It is charged that the Legislature was corrupt, and so extravagant that in creased taxation is necessary. The repeal of the license law resulted in depriving the counties of a gross rev enue of two million dollars a year, so that the incorporated cities were com pelled to issue bonds to raise money for the support of the infirmaries and police It ib undeniable that the Dem ocracy aigualized their victory last year by casting out Senator Pendle ton-the father of civil service reform and an accomplished gentleman-aud electing in his Ptead Mr. Payne, who hus no other distinction than euch as ia given him by hie auriferous con nection with the Standard Oil mo nopoly. The legislative hinges were Ireely oiled when Mr. Payne was elect ed. This and the open hostility to Judge Thurman may well have dis gusted the quiet and disinterested Democratic votera of Ohio. It was evident to them that the State Gov ernment was run by machinery, and, in the North and West at least, there are Democrats who think for them selves and will not blindly vote tor party candidates who are unworthy in character or conduct. Ohio is a warning. The Democrat ic defeat in that State will be followed by Democ;atic defeats in other State?, unless the Democratic masses make their wishes and determination known and gag the loquacious spoilsmen who sneer at the relorm of the civil ser vice and hint that Preeident Cleve land is unfaithful to the Democratic p?rty. "Mr. Cleveland to day is strong er than the professional leaders of the National Democracy, and we firmly believe that there would have been r. different result in Ohio if the Presi dent himself h^tUieen njh-fcgg^tjgMg The Victory or the Republicans ip, in fact, more of a protest against Demo cratic I acksliding and a rebuke to Democratic maligning than an indi talion of want of confidence in the President and his policy. What, by the way, would have been the extent of the Republican majority in Ohio if President Cleveland had worked the public offices in the in terest of the Democratic candidates in the manner iu which the offices were worked for tho party's candi ii;tes by his Republican predecessors. Information Wanted. Charleston News and Courier. We have no special information con iorning the proposed narrow gauge ailway from Greenville to Edgefield, ind we suppose that, if Charleston's issistance is desired steps will be aken to explain fully the character nd merits of the enterprise. It ap cara, however, to oiler an excellent ppoitunity to Charleston to obtain a hort line to the mountains at a tri ing expense. Some months ago various efforts rere made to interest the Charleston ublic in the Carolina, Cumberland lap and Chicago Railroad, and corn litteea were appointed to devise leans for giving aid to that project he townships through which the )ad is to pass were invited to make inscriptions to the stock of the com any, and beyond that no information :is beeu given to tho public. It is not likely that there will be iy disposition to take up the narrow luge scheme, unless the Carolina, umberland Gap and Chicago Riil ?ad shall be abandoned, or provo to 3 impracticable. It is very desira e, therefore, that President Hsgood, ? some one elae who is acquainted ith the condition of aiftirn, shall let ie public know how the road stands id what are its prospects.
