The State Liberal Committee’s Appeal to the People of New York. Shanks, Radical Candidate, Beaten in the Ninth. In diana District. Congressional Nominations—Miscel ADDRESS OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. New Yoee, Oct. 14. —The National Democratic Committee have issued the following address to the people of the United States: The October elections aro over. They enable us to form/ tolerably accurate idea of the true political situation of the country. In Georgia we have to recount a victory for the Liberal ticket so unexampled as to take her out of the list of doubtful States, and practically to pronounce in advance the decision of at least 125 votes in the Electoral College. To this number it is only necessary to add sixty votes to elect Greeley and Brown. In Pennsylvania the distinguished Chairman of the Liberal Committee has eloquently characterized the methods by which the result of the election . there was accomplished. In Ohio, despite the most unprecedented gains for the Liberal Demo cratic ticket, the Grant managers have carried the election by a reduced majority, having brought to the polls their entire reserve vote. Had our Democratic friends in certain localities of that great Commonwealth shown the same earnestness and activity, and enabled us, like onr enemies, to record our entire strength, they would now be exulting over a brilliant victory. In Indiana the Democratic and Liberal forces have achieved a moat important success over the Pennsylvania tactics, most un scrupulously employed by the Administration and its allies, showing thus that a free people, when aroused, know their rights, and dare main tain them. Indiana baa fairly demonstrated that she can neither he bought nor bullied. - The moral of these results is that victory is still in plain view for our national ticket, and that en ergy and courage will assure it; that victory must be won. If wo mean to preserve free in stitutions on this continent, wo moat assure it. The event in Pennsylvania on Tuesday last, when considered in its causes, is the most appalling political catastrophe 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 contest it is surely, that the city in which onr Bepublio was bom, amid the anthems of a free people, should now now be the drat to toll the knell of its liberties. It is for the free, un honght people of all the States to calmly re view the fearful crime against suffrage in Pennsylvania, and to decide whether it shall he repeated within thelrownborders. For the drat time the system of free government and the sanctity of the ballot are really on trial in the United States. From this hour forward the pres ervation of the franchise in its integrity dwarfs all other issues. Let our friends in each of the States catch Inspiration from the heroic conduct of our fellow-eitizens in Georgia, and in Indi ana, and from now till November let their strag gle be manful and unceasing for liberty and an untainted ballot-box; for reform and an honest Administration of the Government. (Signed.) Augustus Schell, Chairman of the National Democratic Com mittee. The Tribune makes the following comment: “The Democratic National Committee meets the situation with high courage and wisdom. The admirable address of Mr. Scholl is the rallying cry for the short, sharp, and decisive campaign that remains, we may make it end in success if we will. The Democratic State Committee of Ohio frankly tells the cause of failure to make the victory there complete. The Liberal Re publicans, it says, gave them all the votes they needed, and more, out they had not themselves brought out their own vote. The State Com mittee of Pennsylvania might truthfully make a similar explanation. . There is a large element of the Hartranft majority directly traceable to apathetic or dis contented Democrats. We were cheated 10,000 in Philadelphia. We lost a greater number of votes for which we hod reason to look to the party to which Charles E. Buck&lew has been so distinguished an ornament. We may trust it for better work now that its leaders frankly recognize the situation. Between now and No vember there will be some of the hardest politi cal fighting ever seen in this country. The Lib eral party is too well founded, and too nobly in spired, to be crushed by an engagement which loses two States and secures one.” $3X4,000 $250,000 ADDRESS TO THE LIBERAL REPUBLICANS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. New York, Oct. 14. —The following Is the ad dress to the Liberal Bepahlicans of the State of New York; Headquabterb N, Y. Lib. Hep. State Com., ) St. Nicholas Hotel. Oct. 14, 1872. J The results of the October elections have not fulfilled our just expectations. Though Indiana is tied with a Liberal Governor and Superin tendent of Education, chosen by decided ma jorities ; while Ohio has so far reduced the ad verse majority that our brethren in that State confidently hope to be successful at the coming election; while Georgia declared for us by a majority which insures the choice of Greeley and Brown electors in nearly every Southern State, yet the enormous majority counted against ns in Pennsylvania has given our adversaries assurance that by like lavish disbursements and fraudulent practices they may carry almost any State they choose, includ ing oven New York. There is no intelligent cit izen, of whatever party, who does not realize that the 35,000 mojority scored up in Pennsyl vania for Hartrauft over Buckalew represents not the convictions of the voters, but the vast sums whereby those convictions have been overborne, and that this majority could have just as easily been given to either of the two undoubted gigantic peculators who were pardoned out of felon’s cells, where they had spent but a few months in order that their testimony might smooth the way to Hart rauft’s election. A contest is now forced upon us between money and manhood. All the ex penditures of all parties in former Presidential elections do not ecpial in the aggregate the vast sums with which every contested State is supplied in order to make them seem to desire and consent to the retention of the present rule at Washington. Not only are office-holders, land-grant jobbers, subsidy mongers, and Gov ernment contractors of all kinds assessed and reassessed to promote the re-election of General Grant, but we are well assured that European bond-holders and fund-mongers who never saw this country, whose rights w© never questioned, whose interests we never assailed, have been in duced to subscribe and contribute bounteously to the same end. We cannot raise dimes to meet the dollars thus poured out against us. No credit mohlier has des irously transferred millions to our pock ets, and fastened a corresponding debt upon the industry and property of the toiling masses. No Secretary of the Treasury stands ready to help us fill our pockets or our campaign chest by stock gambling, in which he loads the dice so as to make it certain that we shall win. In short we have but the few dollars proffered us oy those who have honestly earned them, and we most make therewith the beat fight we CHICAGO, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1872. laneous Items. : can, while the venal, the sordid, the rapacious largely supply their tons of thousands to our antagonists, confidently expecting their return with large usury through the legislation and jobbery whereby the few are enriched at the cost of the many. Of course, these are all shouting In chorus that we are already beaten. But we are not beaten. There are twenty States casting nearly 200 electoral votes that we can still carry if we only will. We are in danger of defeat mainly because some faint hearts are discouraged. A large majority of the American people realize that we stand on the right plat form, and they at least desire our success. They desire, as we do, aperfect National reconciliation on the basis of universal amnesty and impartial liberty. They desire also National purifi cation, and a genuine Civil Service Reform, whereby the freedom of election shall be protected and shielded from the. enormous corrupting patronage of the Federal executive. If we shall be overborne in this elec tion, it will be generally conceded within a year that the reforms for which we struggled were genuine and necessary. In every contest be tween money and manhood, the latter is certain of ultimate if not instant success. Brethren, we must not be beaten. Our country has too much at stake on the issue of this contest. Resolve with ns this day that by your stout hearts, and strong arms, tne Liberal cause and candidates shall be resistlessly borne onward to a decisive, beneficent triumph. On behalf of the Liberal Republican State Committee. (Signed.) John Cochbanb, Chairman. THE VOTE OF INDIANA. Indianapolis, Oct, 14.—The official vote of 77 counties, received at the Secretary of State’s office, with the semi-official returns from the other 18 counties, give Hendricks, Democrat, for Governor, 894 majority; Leonidas Sexton, Republican, for Lieutenant Governor, 1.313 ma* majority; W. W. Curry, Republican, for Secre tary of State, 1,163 majority; J. A. Wildman, Republican, for Auditor, I,224.majority; J. B. Glover, Repuplican, for Treasurer, 1,520 major ity ; G. L. Orth, Republican, for Congressman at-Large, 1,147 majority; William Williams, Re publican, Congressman-at-Large, 1,474 majority. The balance of the State ticket, ex cept Superintendent of Public Instruc tion, is Republican. For the latter office, Milton B. Hopkins, Democrat, is elected. The Legislature, from the official re turns, will stand 54 Republicans to 46 Demo crats in the House, and 27 Republicans to 28 Democrats in the Senate. I The official vote of the Ninth Congressional District elects Neff over Shanks, Republican, by 28 votes; but in one township in Adams County, Shanks’ district, 47 Republican votes were thrown out on account of the words “Repub lican Ticket," printed at the head of the ticket. If these votes are allowed in the final count, Shanks will be elected by 10 votes. Both parties are preparing to renew the con test for the Presidential election. ADDRESS TO THE LIBERALS OF MISSOURI. St. Louis, Oct. 14.— The Liberal State Com mittee have issued an address to the Liberals of Missouri, in which the recent elections ore re viewed. and much hone for the future is ex pressed. It is claimed that oil the Southern States, excepting North and South Carolina and Mississippi, will go for Greeley, giving him 98 electoral votes; Now York, New Jersey, Connec ticut, Indiana, Nevada, and Missouri are regard ed as certain for the Liberal ticket, giv ing eighty-three more votes, or enough, within three, to elect. New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Illinois, although doubtful, are considered almost certain for Greeley; at least enough votes will be obtained from them to render a victory in November sure. THE DAKOTA DELEGATE ELECTION. Yankton, D. T., Oct. 18. —Trustworthy re turns from the northern part of the Territory, and along the line of the Northern Pacific Rail road, show a concentration of the Representa tive vote on Brookings, and giving him a major ity of nearly 800 in that portion of the Territory. This puts him 500 ahead of Moody, the other Republican candidate, and probably elects him by a plurality vote over Armstrong, Democrat and Liberal, though it will be some time before the official returns are all in. The contest be tween Brookings and Armstrong may be close. CONGRESSIONAL NOMINATIONS. New York. Oct. 14.—James W. Covert has been nominated for Congress by the Democrats of the First District of New York. * St, Louis, Oct. 14.—The Democrats of the Third District in this city, at the third meeting of their Convention to-night, nominated Wm. H. Stone for Congress. It Is stated on good authority that William Grosvenor will decline the nomination of the Liberals and Democrats in the First District. NEW YORK CITY POLITICS. New Yore, Oct. 14. —1t is now thought that Havemever will be nominated for the Mayoralty by the Committee of Seventy, and Commissioner George W. Van Nort—Tweed's successor—by the Republicans. This will make four candidates in the field for Mayor, the other nominees being Lawrence and O’Brien. The Reform Association an address favoring the election of William P. Havemoyer for Mayor. MISCELLANEOUS. New York, Oct. 14. —Ten indictments have been found by the Essex (N. J.) County Grand Jury against the persons for fraudulently reg istering prior to tne late charter election. New Orleans, Oct 14.—The Democrats and Liberals have fused on parish and city officers, with L. A. Wiltz for Mayor. Lancaster. Pa., Oct. 14.—A complaint was made to-day before Alderman Arnwog, hy Rein hardt, Election Judge of the Eighth Ward of Lancaster, against Dr. H. E, Muhlenburg, United States Collector of Internal Revenue, for offering said Election Judge 8200 if he would stuff the ballot-box to reduce Buckolew’s major ity to 100 in said word. A warrant was issued for the arrest of Muhlenburg. New York, Oct. 14. — A decided sensation was created at the Cooper Institute to-night by the speech of Miss Minnie Swayse, of Trenton, N.J., before a large and enthusiastic Greeley meeting. Her remarks were received with frequent and general applause, and at the conclusion of her address many of the principal literary men of the metropolis tendered her their codgratula tion. INDIAN RAVAGES. The Apaches Murdering- and Plunder* ing In Arizona* San Francisco, Oct. 14.—Advices from Tuc son, Arizona, Oct. 8, say, on Sept. 30. the Apaches attacked Hughes' ranche, near Critten den, and killed one Mexican and stole the ani mals. Lieutenant Hall, and fifteen men of the Fifth Cavalry, went to the ranche where Mrs. Gabera and children were besieged, and found the Indians 100 strong, with breech-loading guns. They retired to the mountains and defied the 'troops. A ser geant with five men was despatched to warn the farmers of the Sonora Valley of the danger. Near Hughes' Rancho the Indians killed Ser geant George Stewart, Corporal William Nation, and Privates Ed. Carr, and John Walsh. An order was received by Lieutenant Hall from Goward, not to fire on the Indians in the moun tains unless engaged in actual outrages. The same order was sent to all posts of the South Gila river on the same day of the murder of the soldiers. General Howard was at the time in the Dragoon Mountains with the noted Cochise, trying to induce him to go on the Res ervation. On the 6th of October a largo band of Apaches from the Santa Rita Mountains, with a herd of stolen cattle, attacked a party of American and Mexican miners, thirty miles south of Tucson, and robbed them of all their animals. Two men are missing. The Indians were armed with the best guns and fixed ammunition.

Loss of a Steamer on Lake Michigan. Thrilling Story of (he Sinking of the Steamer Lac La Belle. Escape and Perils of Survivors—Six Lives Lost—Story of an Officer. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Racine, Wia., Oct. 14, 1872.—A painful ex citement was caused this evening by the arrival of life boats bringing survivors from the steamer Lac la Belle, of the Fugleman Line, Captain H. W. Thompson, Clerk Sanderson, Which sunk off this port last night. She loft Milwaukee on Sunday night with a cargo of pro visions. The story of her loss is told by two officers of the unfortunate steamer, who were in the life-boats. Two of tlie five boats have arrived here, a boat commanded by the cleric, Sanderson, and one commanded by the second engineer. The former boat had seven persons in all onboard. The en gineer’s boat had ten of the crew, including first ■ and second cooks and night-watchman, one pas senger, and a boy, twelve persons in ail. The Captain’s boat, which is reported ar rived in Milwaukee, had four persons aboard. She was a very small boat. One of the other two boats, with ten people, was seen by the engineer’s boat making north toward Mil waukee. Mr. Sanderson thinks they were picked np by a schooner, if not, they will land somewhere between Racine and Milwaukee. Of the fifth boat which, according to the state ments of Sanderson, must have contained thir teen persons, there is as yet no tidings, though there is no reason to believe she will not foie as well as the rest in a wonderfully fortunate es cape. The following is the STATEMENT OF THE GLEBE. W. Sanderson, Clerk of the Lac la Belle, says: We left Milwaukee nine o’clock Sunday night having on board nineteen fall passengers and two children, with a crew of thirty-two men, all told. About midnight, when about twenty-five miles off Racine, sea running heavily, we ship ped a heavy sea amidships, which put out fires and stopped engines. It was blowing hard from the north ana when the vessel lost headway the wind swung her around and a heavy sea strained open seams through which the water rushed with such force that in spite of all efforts of the crew, it gained rapidly upon os, and about 5:30 a. m., it became evident the steamer would go down. There were five boats in sdL two life-boats,the yawl and two small boats. We got all the peo ple into theee boats, with the exception of five or six men who refused to leave the vessel, and who, I think, were drowned when she went down. I bad in my boat 7. persons, Peter Wetter, M. Warner and wife, Robert Fogg, Louis Oerhster, Rebecca Campbell, and myself. We landed 6 miles south of Racine at 6 o’clock thin evening, having been 12 hours on water. Dur ing the forenoon a propeller, with two smoke stacks, passed quite near us, but made no re sponse to our signals, although I am confident she saw us. THE ENGINEER’S STATEMENT. They left Milwaukee at 9 o’clock, last night. About midnight the steamer sprung aleak and made water rapidly. There were about twenty-five passengers on board, includ ing seven lames and three children. The crew worked hard all night trying to prevent the vessel from sinking, and threw considerable of the cargo overboard, but all to no purpose. Finding the steamer settling fast, they prepared to take to the life-boats, of 'wmfcßrtlSerfr. wore five. Into one of these, five of the ladies, wore put, with a good crew to manage it. The men were, however, tired out, having worked all night with nothing to eat, and suffering from cold. When the last boat left the steamer, I saw five men left on her. When she went down, saw four of them in the water, one clinging to a liiec© of timber. Think they must have been ost, as we could give them no .assistance with out imminent danger.of swamping our boat. Two of the five boats drifted south toward Kenosha. THE METHODISTS. Annual meeting of the Rock River Conference—Action on tlie Temper ance Question. Rockford, 111., Oct. 14. —Among several items of business to-day, five promising young men were admitted on trial, and two or three transfers announced. Dr. Thomas Meddy made a fine speech in be half of the missionary cause. A collection of eighty dollars was taken in be half of Rev. A. D. Field, one of the former ac tive ministers, but now in needy circumstances. The following report on temperance was most heartily adopted: Whereas, We believe the use and sale of Intoxicat ing liquors as a beverage to be contrary to the publio good, corrupting the public morals, and having a tendency to undermine and destroy all our institu tions, both civil and religious; and. 2. Whereas, It becomes us as Christian ministers, no less than as good citizens, to do all in our power to check this great evil; aud, 3. Whebeas, Organized opposition bos been, and is now being, made to the new State Temperance law; therefore, Rrssfircix, Teat we will continue the advocacy of the temperance reform by presenting the cause to our peo ple, and by supporting all just legal measures looking in this direction. Resolved, That in the new Su'te Temperance law we recognize a just aud beneficent incasure, and that, as a Conference, wo pledge it our hearty co-operation and support. Resolved, That, as citizens, we will ure our influence to secure the election to officer of trust and responsi bility, of known temperance men. Luke Hitchcock, Chairman. Olin F. Mattisok, Secretary.

The British American although the Commission to try them has been in ex istence nearly two years, have not been re duced much in numbers; though there is a fair prospect that, on the return of the session of the Commissioners in the latter part of this month, a large number of the cases will be dis posed of. The Mexican and Spanish Claims Commission are nnable to do much toward disposing of the many cases on their books on account of a disa greement having arisen among themselves, which will have to be settled through diplo matic channels, and by that course only. It is expected that both will be in running order in a month or two, but not before that time. The Southern Claims Commissioners have dis posed of several thousand claims of loyal South erners, on which Congress, at its last session, finally passed as approved by the members of the Commission. Of those passed on the amounts are comparatively small, but in the re maining cases, which the Commission are now engaged upon, the amounts are very large, and on that account much testimony has to he taken. In a number of the claims, the amounts are over $200,000 each, while in one case it reaches to SBOO,OOO. The majority, how ever, range about $30,000 each. During the summer months, the Commissioners disposed of a number of small cases, which rest on docu mentary evidence. It will be two years, at least, before,.the Southern Claims Commission * have concluded its work. ARKANSAS TROUBLES. Adviceß received here to-day from Little Bock indicate the peaceful settlement of the disturb ances in Pope County, which at one time threat* ened civil war between the Clayton-Hadley Gov ernment and the people of the State in general. The indignation of the whole county was turned on the Clayton-Hadley band, and it is now stated that they have sneaked out of their scrape by employing Democrats to con ciliate the people, and have dismissed Dodson, who will not run for office again. This disturb ance has made the unfortunate county bank rupt, and a lawless malitia have eaten up the stock and provisions on every side and saddled SIOO,OOO of debt on them. Tbe European Armies* From the Pall Mall Gazette . An article appeared lately in the Berlin Post showing that the military forces under the com mand of the three Emperors who have lust left the capital of Germany are considerably more than half of the whole forces of Europe. The effective of the Russian army, without including the garrison troops or the Cossacks of the Asiatic Pences, would reach 1,362,464 men, with 324,760 horses, and 2,084 guns. The Austrian army is placed at 963,051 men, with 132,323 horses ana 1,424 guns; and the German effective is 1,052,506 men, with 239.314 horses, and 2 022 guns. These three together would thus com- Eose the enormous total of 8.378,021 men, 696.807 orses, and 5,590 guns. This is taking the ar mies on the old war footing; but Germany has already—in 1870-71—shown she could exceed the number stated as her effective by nearly 200,- 000 men. Now, let us take the forces of all the other European States together, and we do not find that they approach anything like the above total. Instead of nearly three and a mill ions, they give only 2,143,516 men, end 320,357 horses, and 3,572 guns. The military forces of France on the war footing reach 505,537 men, with 113,939 horses and 984 guns. Italy has 501,977 men, with 43,472 horses, and 720 guns. England is placed at 470,779 men (of whom only 154,638 can be employed out of the country), 33,642 horses, and 336 guns. Belgium, Holland. Denmark. Turkey, and Spain, can dispose in all of 981.364 men, 129,304 horses, and 1,532 guns. According, however, to the new military organi zation to be adopted in France, the military forces of that power will be increased to 1.300,000 men, and 2,400 guns, without counting the second line of the reserve and the territorial army, which, in case of necessity, might raise the effective strength of the French forces to 8,000,000 men. Obviously, however, these last figures do not, at present at least, represent any real force, although the Berlin Post concludes from them that France would be able, upon necessity, to sustain a conflict with a coalition of the three empires. Getting Out of a. Dilemma* An actor by the name of Hind was remarkable ’ for his presence of mind and fertility of expedi ents. One evening, while playing in some for fotten melodrama, he extricated himself with onorirom an awkward difficulty. He repre sented the hero of the piece, a hardened bri gand, caught at last, and awaited his doom in a sombre cell. One of his accomplices had con trived to convey to him a rope ladder and a file. His business was to file through the bars of his prison window, and attempt biw escape through the opening. At the moment when he was getting out of the Irindow, three soldiers had to rush on the stage, fire at him, and shoot him dead. Hind duly went through his part; but at the critical moment, instead of the ex pected fatal catastrophe, the guns missed fire. The soldiers retreated m disorder, and diately returned with fresh muskets, which, not being loaded, merely flashed in the pan. _ position was becoming unpleasant. Suddenly he fell upon the stage, uttering fear ful ones, dragged himself to the foot-lights in apparent agony, and exclaimed: “Merciful heavens! I have swallowed the file!” Then after well performed convulsions and another !oud groan, he fell stark dead. The audience, who had began to murmur, were appeased by this improvised poetical justice. The new Congregational Church at Peshtigo was dedicated on Tuesday evening, the Bth, the anniversary of the great fire, and is almost an exact reproduction of the X ‘ was de stroyed. x NUMBER 58.
