Further returns from Alabama show that the Republicans have not lost the Legislature, but have a ma jority of seven on joint ballot. This will probably assure the return of 3Ir. Warner to the Senate of the United States. Unlike their breth ren in a majority of the Southern States, the Republicans of Alabama have declared in favor of general amnesty, instead of the prescrip tive policy which has been brought to judgment in Missouri, Tennessee, Corth Carolina and West A'irginia. COMMISSIONER DELANO. In his Internal Revenue Report just published, recommends the discon tinuance of the detective branch of the service as carried on by spies and informers and by the payment of moieties. The siijrecstion is a good one. Nothing has tcndccTfo bring the Internal Revenue system into so much odium as the system of espionage and the corruption en rendered bv it. The way to make men dishonest is to systematically treat them as such. The 'detective' system for the suppression of coun terfeiting made more counterfeiters than it arrested, for the spies and in formers found their profit in inci ting to crime rather than in suppress ing it, and it is so in great measure with the "detective system in In ternal Revenue matters. THE OHIO PENITENTIARY. Wc are gratified to learn that the Ohio Penitentiary has earned $32, 000 for the State during the past vcar. over its expenses. Tins result of a surplus was begun under Gen Walcntt. and wc are clad to see it continued under Col. Burr, the pros cnt warden. There is no prison in the Union under better regulations and discipline than that of Ohio. And it is gratifying also to know that but few, if any except our own, yield n revenue above their ex penses. THE OHIO STATE DEBT. Official reports from Columbus, show that during the fiscal A'earjust closed, the commissioners of the Sinking Fund of the State have re- dnccd the funded debt of the State in the amount of $201,446.14. Of this amount $128,800.37 was by pur chase, $121,588.76 by exchanges, and $19,000 by cancellation. The amount now outstanding is $9,752,130.73, while the commissioners have $20, 058.82 still invested in Ohio State (.tocks, so that the public debt of the Suite is in fact only $9,782,077. 31. The debt would have been still farther reduced could the bonds have been purchased, but Ohio securities t-tand so high in the market, that it is very difficult to affect a purchase of her bonds at a liberal premium Onrtax-paycrs should make a note of this, and contrast our financial condition and credit with those States, are not only vastly deeper in debt, but constantly- growing more so. while they arc obliged to submit lo enormous disconnts whenever jind whercvever they attempt to dis pose of their bonds. The Vice-President in Brooklyn Vice-President Colfax arrived in town on Wednesday, and yesterday had an interview with Collector 3furphy in the Custom House. He is the guest of Henry C. Bowcn of Brooklyn'. 3Ir. Colfax is in good health and spirits, and talks freely on the subject of retiring from political life. He is Hooded with invitations from all parts of the country tolccturc,ljnUic confines himself strictly to the duties of his office, excepting only the" fulfilment of his egagemcnt as one of the con tributors to The Independent. IMMIGRATION. The English .Emigration Com missioners report that from 1847 to 1869, 3,081,671 persons sailed from ljic United Kingdom, of whom about :).500,000 came to the United States, S 17,000 went U Australia and 610, 000 to British North America. The annual average of emigration from the United Kingdom has been about 10,000, but last year it reached 258,027, it being the first year that the English emigrants were more numerous than the first. It is es timated that the entire cost of pass age for this immense number of migrants could not have been less than $73,000,000, which, with the aggregate of funds brought away by the emigrants besides, has been a pretty heavy drain upon the mate rial resources of the United Kingdom. AMERICAN RAILROADS. The condensed'' reports of the Railway Companies in phib. now being published in the. Columbus Journal, are particularly interesting as showing the progress of the rail road interest, the exact financial conditiou of the companies and con dition of the different roads. Gen. George 15. Wright. Railroad Commissioner, has ierfceted his system of securing information re quired by law, and his forthcoming report will be the most complete of the series in this State, and perhaps the most complete published in the country. At the close of 1869 the United States had about 50,000 miles of railroad in operation, about 5,000 miles being constructed during that year, and the whole being built at a cost of more than two billions of dollars, the most of it supplied by American capitalists. Nineteen years ago, in 1851, the total railway mileage of the country amounted to but 8,870 miles, the earnings of which from passengers for that year were $19,274,254, and from freight, $20,192,104 making a total of $29,406,358. The entire tonnage of all these roads was about 5,000,000 ton ; or equal to 416 pounds per head of the whole population of the United. States. The value of this tonnage was set down at $750 000,000. In 1839, eighteen years afterward, the tonnage of all our railroads ex ceed 100,000,000 tons, being more than twenty times as great1 as in 1861; and the carningsof the roads from this source amounted to about $300,000,000, or about fifteen times as much as in 1851. The value of the tonnage transported by railway in 1809 is $10,800,000,000, which is more than four times tas much as the amount of our national debt. The average tonnage per mile of railway was about 2,600. If wc assumc.that the railroads constructed in 1869 are equal to 5,000 miles of line,, and in a single year carry only one-half of this average, then the gross amount of their tonnage for one year would be 6,250,000 tons, the estimated value of which would, ic-about $937,500,000. The Republicans Stronger in Missouri than the Democracy. The voting strength of parties in the last election was 120,000 Repub licans (divided 65,000 for Brown, and 55,000 for McCIurg), and 43, 000 Democrats (divided about. 38,: 000 for Brown, and about 5,000 for McClurg). But the registered strength of both parties was 130,000 Republicans, anil 73,0(XVDemocrats, of whom 10,000 Republicans and 30,000 Democrats did not vote for Governor: How many men have been enfran chiscd by the amendments? When we speak loosely, or look hastily over the field, "we are all apt to put the numbers very' high. The voting in 1S70 was based upon population in 1869, which was about 1,600,000. The ratio varies from 1 voter to 6 to 1 voter to C, inhabitants. At the latter ratio, whole number of voters should be 246,000; at tlie former 266,000, and the truth lies between these two. let us suppose that the whole number of persons of voting age and residence November, 1870, was 230,000, of whom 203,000 were registered. An allowance must be made for failure or " neglect to regis ter from other causes than disfran chisement, and that allowance, or dinarily five per eent;, would natur ally be somewhat larger, when the form of registration is annoying and vexatious, as it is here. If -we allow- only 5 per cent, the number of dis franchised cannot.exceccL.43,000; if wc allow 10 per cent., it will not ex ceed 33,000. Between these figures probably lies the actual number. Adding the largest.number to the registered Democratic vote, and supposing that every man recently- enfranchised shoiild'VOtc the Dem ocratic ticket which, they certajnly will not the Democratic strength cveu then cannot exceed 116,000, against 130,000 Republicans. But before the election of 1872, another addition for two years of immigra tion must be made, which would still further increase the Republican majority if party lines should remain unchanged. This review shows three facts: I. That a majority of Ttepubli- cans voted for .brown. II. That more Republicans than Democrats voted for Brown. III. That the Republicans, if united, liave more than 14,000 ma jority in this State, even if all the newly enfranchised men should vote against them And that majority will be larger vet in 1872. Missouri Democrat. WAR NOTES OF THE DAY. Dispatches from Tours announce that on tiic 28th a severe aud general engagement was going on. French victories arc claimed along the Loire, and that the Germans have been routed and arc retiring. In direct conflict with this is the statement that a detachment of eight thousand Prussians is at Chateau Renault, fifteen miles south of Vcn dome, where a previous World dis patch said the Prussians wore do featcd and driven northward, and but about fifteen miles north of Tours. The battle between Villicrs and Salcnx, near Amiens, lasted all day. The French maintained their position up to half past four in the afternoon, when Villicrs was aban doned before the superior forces and artillery of the Prussians. The French were subsequently beaten at Bovics.afew miles west of Villicrs, butatDurry-they maintained their ground until night. Three thou sand Germans were engaged at the latter place. The distress in Paris on' account of bhort supply of food Is grcatnnd increasing. All idea of forcing a passage out seems lo have been abandoned, and out- paper has broken ground in an eaniestappeal to the! J'ri)visioual Government for peace, as the fall of Paris is inevita ble. In the eat the forces of Garibaldi have met with defeat near Pa'-qucs at the hands of Ceiicral Werdcr's troops, and fled in disorder. By the capitulation of La Fcrc. seventy cannon of all sorts fell into the hands ofthe'Prussiansr'Ir.-rc- connoitering near Orleans, the 10th Prussian Corps encountered Palidc- nes army, ana an engagement eurred in which the French were driven from their strongholds at Lodan aud JIazierres.with a serious loss. A rumor is afloat that an at tempt has been made to shoot King William of Prussia, by a Bavarian soldier. The report that Amiens has been occupied by the Germans, is confirmed. " HOW MOTHER DID IT." A Husband's Reminiscences. If we were to suggest one which, above all other things combined, would most contribute to the happi ness of the young housekeepers, it would be to learn how to cook as a husband's mother cooked. Mother used to make coffee so and so; moth er used to have such waffles: and mother knew just how thick, or how thin, to make a squash pie; and, oh! if I only could taste of mothers bis cuit. Such are the comments of the husband and of too'manymeals ta bles. It would be only a little more cruel for the husband to throw his fork across the table,. or to dash the contents of. his tea enp in his wife's face. The experience of a contrite husband is good readin'g' for those men whose daily sauce, is "how moth er did it." Hq says;., "I found fault some time ago with Maria Ann's custard pie, and tried to tell her how my mother' made custard pie. Maria made the pie after my receipt. It lasted longer than, any other pic we ever had, Maria set it on the table every day for dinner; and you sec I could not eat it because 1 forgot to tell her to pntin any eggs,. or shortening. It was economical, but in a lit of gen erosity I stole it from the- pantry anAg?yejt jtoa. poor little boy in the neighborhood. The bov's' funer al was largely-attended by his former playmates. 1 did not-go myself. "Then there were the buckwheat cakes. I told Maria Ann any fool could beat her making those" cakes and she said I had better try it. So I did. I emptied the batter all out of the pitcher one evening and set the cakes myself. 1. got the flour and salt and water and, warned bv the past, put in a liberal quantity of eggs and shortening. 1 shortened with tallow from roast beef because I could not find any lard.- The bat ter did not look right, aud I lit my pipe, and pondered yeast yeast to uc sure. 1 nau lorgotten tlie yeast. I went and woke up the baker and got six cents worth of yeast. I set the pitcher behind the sitting-room stove and went to bed. In. the morning I got up early and prepared to enjoy my triumph; but 1 didn't. That yeast was strong enough to raise the dead, and the batter was running all over the carpet. I scrap ed it up and put ifcin another dish Then I got a lire in tlie kitchen and put on the griddle. The first lot of cakes stuck to the griddle. The second dittoed,' only- more. Mnria came down and asked what was burning. She advised me to grease the griddle. I did it. One end of the griddle got too hot and I dropped the thing on my tenderest corn while trying to- turn the thing around, finally the cakes were ready for breakfast, and Maria got the other things ready. Wc sat down. My cakes did not have ex actly the right flavor. 1 took one mouthful and it satisfied me. I lost my appotite at once. Maria would not let me put one on her plate. I think' those cakes may be reckoned a dead loss. The cat would .notrat them. The dog ran off and stayed away- three days after one was offered him. The hens won't ro within ten feet of them. threw them into the back yard; and there has not been a pig' on the premises since. I eat what is before me now, and do not allude to my mother S system ot cooking.'- Press Restrictions in Germany. Max Hirsch, editor of the "Gc werkverein," has just been convicted in Berlin of the offense of insulting King William by the publication of an1 article in his paper, complaining of the kind treatment which the ex- Emperor Napoleon III. was receiv ing' at Wilhelmshochc. Dr. Hirsch argued that as Louis Napoleon, who was the chief cause of the war, had been received by .the .Prussian gov ernment with all the honors due to a ruling sovereign,thc inference might readily bo drawn-that the Prussian government intended to replace him on the throne of France. The ob noxious article also stated that the restoration of 'Napoleon would deeply offend public feeling' in Ger many. On the trial the prosecuting officer argued that these remarks in sulted King William, since he had personally ordered Napoleon to be sent to Wilhehnshoehe, and had di rected all the arrangements for the treatment of the ex-Emperor. The counsel for the defense, Dr. Lasker, one of the most prominent members of the National Liberal party, ar gued that a newspaper was justified in giving prominence tqvicws'enter taincd by all classes of society, aud by men of whose, patriotism there could be no doubt. He further con tended that no allusion was made to the' King in the article, which was directed solely against the policy" of the Prussian government. I he plan for restoring Napoleon to the throne, Dr. Lasker contended, was an act for which, in a constitutional State, the government, and not the king, must Jie male responsible. The counsel also stated that Dr. Hirsch, as a member of the North German Bund, had supported the government in every question relating to the war, and that his newspaper hhowed him to be an ardent patriot. The prose cuting officer replied to this argu ment, that although Dr. Hirscli was actuated by patriotic motives, he, nevertheless, had insulted tlie King. The Court convicted Dr. Hirsch, and sentenced him to an imprisonment of two months. King William, in his press prosecution, seems to be influenced by his feudal notions of the Mdivino right of kings," " The late Governor Andrew, of Massachusetts, never paid attention to lies or slanders. He said live could bo invented while he was dis- proving oue. Press Restrictions in Germany. THE WAR. Beuux, Nojv 29. King William forwarded the following' to Queen Auinista: ". Vki:au.li-. Nov. 29. Vesterday Manteunel. with a portion of the first army, defeated the b rench a lew miles south of Amiens. The French lost 1.000 killed and wounded and seven hundred prisoners. The Prus sian loss was comparatively unim portant. The Duke of Mccklen-lieT-Scliwerin is ncarLe Mans, where Keratrv has a French force of twentv-seven thousand men. Private French advices say that a great conflict between the oppos ing forces, to the number of oOO,- 000 men, is likely to occur immedi ately in the Southern Department. The Prussians are within twelve miles of the French provisional gov ernment. Trochu denies the state ment that he intends to banish 10, 000 Parisians because of the scarcity of provisions. Loxdox, Nov. 29. .No important news from France to-day. Thus far there is no confirmation of the reported battle licarMohtar gis. 15y the provisions ot the new North German constitution, Prussia has only seventeen out of fifty-seven votes to be cast by the confeder ation. From this fact it is generally- inferred that the future policy of Germany will be peace. A committee ol .hnglish bankers held a meeting last night, and re solved to offer to take the entire new German loan of one hundred million thalers. A Berlin dispatch announces that the Russian military agent in Paris has been forbidden to leave the city, for fear he will betray its desperate condition. The feeling to day in money cir cles is paeific. The Times says "desiring peace we stand on tlie maintenance ot peace guarantees, and a repudiation altogether of the claim to'superccde the obligations of the treaty of laob, a violation of which we cannot ac quiesce in. The Times also gives conspicuous place to a number of contributors insisting on neutrality of the Black Sea or a declaration of war." A NEW KING FOR SPAIN. After nearly two years of Incerti tude, intrigue, doubt and debate, the Constituent Cortes of Spain have at last made choice of a King. The candidature nf Prince, Leopold of Hoheuzclleru was rendered imposs ible by the denials of King William in advance of the present war, though these denials were insuf ficient to prevent the war which France threatened. While Ger many and France have been en gaged in deadly conflict over the pretext which this subject afforded for their duel, .Spain has continued to cast about for a suitable person to assume the crown. The choice has finally rested upon the Duke of Aosta, of the royal house of Italy. This choice is and is not a victory for the Liberal party of Spain. In the first place, that party fought against the selection of any King, and for the establishment of a Re public. In this they were in ad vance of the age in which they lived, Spain, fettered by priestcraft, de moralized by corrupt government, weighed down by an ancient though effete aristocracy, lacked both the culture and the strength for free in stitutions. A King was necessary. The choice of the Liberal party was first the Duke dc Montpcnsier, but, that failing, they resolved to sup port the Duke of Aosta. It is to their support that his success is at tributable. It. remains to be seen whether he will sympathize with the party which has contributed to place him on the throne. THE RUSSIAN DIFFICULTY. Tlie Russian, Difficulty continues to be the subjectof much diplomatic correspondence, secret cabinet meet ings, and much trouble in European government circles, but there- is nothing new to note, except that the war feeling is toning down on all sides. CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE. A remarkable case of circumstan tial evidence, leading to the hang ing for murder of an innocent man, has just come to' light, and is pub lished in' the Louisville Courier- Journal. In the year 1817, Dr. .1. P. Sanderson was murdered in Mct- calf county, Kentucky, and John C. Hamilton was executed as his assas sin. All the circumstances connec ted witli the case pointed so surely toward Mr; Hamilton asthe'murder cr, that no' jury on earth could have failed to convict him; the victim's money was found in his"posscssion; overalls belonging to him were found spotted with blood; he had borrowed the pistol with which San derson was killed, and he was the last man seen in his company in a lonely road near which the mangled body- was found. Little could be done by the defendant's counsel save showing his client'sgood char acter aud giving his extremely' im probable explanation of the whole case. His statements were not cor roborated, and he was hanged. In 1869, Richard H. Rosseau, then Minister of Central America, learned through unquestionable sources that about thirty- or thirty-live years ago a man was executed for murder in the eastern, partqf Mississippi, who, under tne gauows, coniessed that it was he and a comrade of his who had murdered Sanderson, wrench ing from his hand the pistol which Hamilton had lent him, and blowing his brains out with it.

VICTOR EMMANUEL TO THE POPE. lhe loiiowmg is a summary of the conditions offered to the Pope by King Victor Emmanuel on ta king possession of the city of Rome by the Italian army: All political and lay authority of the Pope in Italy is abolished. On the other hand, the Pope will retain, the lrce exercise of all the ecclesias tical rights he now possesses as the head of the Church; will continue to enjoy all the honors and preroga tives ot a sovereign prince; repre sentatives ot loreign Powers at the Papal court will have the same Pre rogatives as at other sovereign courts; he will be accorded territo rial immunity; all prelates, cardi nals, bishops, and other ecclesias tical functionaries, whether Italian or forcign, arc to enjoy-entire immu nity from civil authority at the place of residence of the head of the Church; special postal and telegraph facilities will be placed wholly at his disposal; in fact, he will be in all respects treated as a foreign lay sovereign for whoso, expenditures Italy will make liberal provision. and whose- debts already incurred Italy will assume and pay. By these concessions', adds the Royal State document, "the Italian Government seeks to prove to Eu rope that Italy respects the sover eignty of the Pope in conformity with the principle of a free church in a free State' in O. to In t The Republicans in Nevada elect their becretary of State, Comp troller.
