Developments Concerning the Elec tion Frauds in Phila delphia. The Regular Republican State Ticket Elected in South Carolina. 1 Democratic Congressman Elected in the Fourth District. How the Liberal Cause Is Progress- ing in Wisconsin. letter from Hon, Daniel W. Voorhees, LETTER FROM HON. D. W. VOORHEES, Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Washington, D. C. Oct. 16.—A letter received in this city to-day from Mr. Yoorhoes, dated at Terre Haute, Oct. 11, says that be does not re gret bis defeat for Congress, bat is glad to be remitted to tbe practice of bis profession, -winch is more congenial and lucrative. As to the cause of bis defeat, Mr. Yoorbees says he fore seen it when be said that tbe Democrats could not organize in tbe short time given them before tbe election, and that it was simply a stay-at home vote in bis party that beat him, and hurt tbe cause everywhere. Nobody thought there was a possibility of bis defeat, and over-confi dence led hnndrods to stay away from tbe polls. He writes, as follows, in regard to the lateral movement: “A word or two now about the movement, itself. It is right in its principles and objects—a movement destined to restore self-government to tbe people of the South, and to relieve them from thieves and pirates, to bring about general amnesty, peace, and recon ciliation between the sections, to purify the departments of the Government, now infested by a plandering ring engaged in the civil service of tbe country. A movement, I say, contemplating such results as these, can not fail to elicit my zealous and unfaltering sap port. Tbe only mistake our friends made was m supposing that tbe prejudices of tbe masses of the Democratic party, of thirty-five years standing, against Mr. Greeley, could be entirely overcome in a brief canvass of sixty days. It takes more time than this to work such a change in the minds of honest, slow-thinking people. I thought so when 1 tried to prevent the nomi nation of Mr. Greeley, and now I know it was right. I have en tire respect for this element in our party, and in time it will harmonize with the cause in which wo are engaged; but it takes more time than was given in this movement. Allow me to say a word on another point. Mr. Greeley has personally raised himself a thousand fold in my estimation. His course has been all that could bo desired, and 1 believe he would, if elected, be perfectly true to the principles he has so grandly proclaimed in his unrivalled addresses to the public. I shall vote for him in November, - not only unhesitatingly but with ploaHure r aa a man who has established his claims to my admi ration, notwithstanding my previous prejudice.” r-*- ■ • * DEVELOPMENTS CONCERNING '(ELECTION FRAUDS IN PHILADELPHIA. ; Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. New Yobk, Oct. IC.—The greatfrauds in Phil adelphia are daily coming to light in the form of exact information. The following document has appeared in print: * To the Reform A esoeiation of Pkiladelphid ; -- Gents : In the official count of votes for Gov ernor, in the Fifteenth Ward, it is Represented that the vote for Governor was 1,597, as follows: For Hartranft, 4,490; for Cuckalew, 2,893. The undersigned, Judges of Election, signed no such return or paper. The true vote for Governor was as follows, they having signed the same: For Hartranft, 4, 890; for Buckalew, 2,993; majority, 1,307. By exposing the above fraud, you will oblige friends of Reform in the Fifteenth Ward, and show how our ffeturu Elec tion Judges alter the returns to suit their own partizan way of fixing up election returns. Respectfully yours, John Phitneb, Judge of First Division. James Nash, Judge of Second Division. W. J. Mubbay, . Judge of Seventh Division. Alfred Mtjbfhy, . Judge of Twenty-second Division. Philadelphia, Oct. 16.— I Two hundred votes were counted more than were polled in each ward. In twenty-nine wards we: have 5,800 fraudulent votes, but the Nineteenth Ward poll ed 1,500 fraudulent votes; Twentieth, 500; Tenth, 500; Fifth, 500; Fourth, sold out to Hartranft: Sixteenth, 500; Seventh, the same, etc. The fraudulent votes and false counts in Philadelphia amounted to 15,000. , LIBERAL RALLY AT CHARLESTON. ILL. Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune , Charleston, HI., Oct. 16. —3? he meeting last evening in this city was large and 'enthusiastic. The Court House was crowded early in the even ing, and Governor Bross spoke for| two hours, and was frequently applauded. He’was followed by Hon. D. W. Hanna, of Torre Haute, in a ringing speech. 1 The election in Indiana has convinced the few Bourbons in this vicinity of the utter hopeless ness of their cause, and they have all deter mined to vote for Greeley. The Liberals and Democrats in this part of the States are not dis posed to give up the contest by I any means. They still have strong hopes that with hard work the State may be carried for ‘Kcemer and Greeley. ' APPOINTMENTS OF LIBERAL SPEAKERS IN ILLINOIS. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune, - Springfield, lIL, Oct. 16.—Governor Palmer will address the people at Louisville, Clay Coun ty, Illinois, on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 24; and at Fairfield, Illinois, on Friday afternoon, Oct. 25. Senator Trumbull speaks at Cairo on next Saturday; at Marion, Williamson County, Illi nois, on next Monday; at Belleville, Illinois, on Wednesday, the 23d, and at Carllnville, Thurs day, Oct. 24. \ The Liberal cause in Illinois is in a splendid condition, and our camp fires bum brighter every day. i SOUTH CAROLINA STATE ELECTION Columbia, Oct; 16.— 1n the State elections to day, for Governor, State officers, and five Con fressmen, the only decided opposition offered y the Democrats was in the southern district, where Hon. B. F. Perry, ex-Provisional Gover nor under Johnson’s administration, was. nom inated for Congress. It is thought that he is elected, defeating Wallace, the present repre sentative. It is generally conceded that the Begular Republican State ticket, with Moses for Governor, is elected, defeating what is known as the Bolters’ ticket, with Tomlinson os candidate for Governor, Charleston, S. C.. Oct. 16.— Everything pass ed off quiet at the elections to-day. No conclu sive returns are in, but the probabilities are that Moses and the regular Republican ticket. ore elected by a largo majority.

ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING OF LIBERALS AND DEMOCRATS AT INDIANAPOLIS—THE RE TURNS YET INCOMPLETE. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune . Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 16.— The Democrats and Liberal Republicans held a magnificent meeting at the Academy of Musio to-night. The house was crowded. Speeches were mode by Governor Hendricks, the Hon. G. W. Julian, General Manaon, Judge Gooding, and Dr. Vftiito, of New York. Tho enthusiasm was very great, and a determination, evinced to go into the coming election with colors flying and presenting an unbroken front. In the course of his remarks, Dir. Hendricks said: “I wish to refer to one fact. I have been for many years, conspicuous in the politics of the State, but never experienced such bitter attacks as in the present campaign. For my public acts I ask no cover; but private af fairs, for contemptible purposes, had" been brought into question, without reference to the truth. But all their attacks added to the votes 1 received. There is a sentiment of fair play and justice /in the minds of the people which induces them to defend a man when unjustly assailed. A little more effort would have elected both the Congressmen-at- Largo and the whole State ticket. The vote of the Bepublicans in the election just closed was in favor of reform.” He was gratified to ex press his obligations for their support, aud also gratified to know that the Democrats stood side by side with Liberal Bepublicans in favor of reform and good government. He regretted that there is a single man in the Democratic party that received Grant money, and, in return for it, struck a blow against the law. “ They will hereafter be rejected by the Demo crats, and neglected by the Bepublicans, as unfit to bo trusted. Indiana can be counted for Greeley and Brown if we work vigorously. There is not a single man in Indiana but knows that thcro is occasion for reform. It is said that the fight between the boys in blue and the boys in gray is still going on, but I dispute it in toto. The war ended seven years ago, and 1872 should be a year of jubilee, general rejoic ing, and gladness. I ask the soldier to make his ballot mean just what his bullet meant,—not to make desolation, but that the legitimate authority of the country might be re stored, an/1 our Bepublio continue a united na tion. Let the hatred which separates the North and South pass away, aud we shall be brothers again as in days of old.” Mr. Hendricks, in closing, said that the Grantites had expended all their money and could not get any more to import votes with, and, with proper organization and diligence on the part of Demo crats and Liberal Bepublicans the State can be carried for Mr. Greeley by 5,000 to 10,000 ma jority. The official returns of the State election are yet incomplete. The result will be but little different from the figures already published. THE LIBERAL CAUSE IN WISCONSIN. Whitbwates, Wla., Oct. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune : Bib : The October elections have not, in the least, disturbed the equanimity of mind of the Wisconsin Liberals. Every man is “in line,” and ready for the contest. The redemption of Indiana from the Executive control of the domi nant party is, indeed, a great triumph for the Liberal cause. Tbe irreproachable character, eminent abilities, and pore patriotism of T. A. Hendricks, the Governor elect, give euro guar antee that for tho next four years, tbe Hoosier State will be vouchsafed good ana honest gov ernment, so. far. as the Execu tive will be enabled to secure ■ it. His election is, indeed, the . first sub stantial victory winch has been achieved in the Northwest over the Washington “ Bing V and its nefarious schemes. This grand result, has in spired tbe Liberal forces with courage and zeal. The result in Pennsylvania is a victory of the Grantitcs, of which they feel heartily ashamed, knowing the same to have been secured by tbe most infamous frauds ever concocted. Tbe Lib erals ore not in tho least dispirited over that result, while several in this vicinity who have heretofore acted with the Grantitcs declare that they will no longer sustain a party JJwhich has proven itself so utterly lacking in every element so essential to good government. Allow us to assure our Liberal friends in othrr States that Wisconsin will do her whole duty in November. We hsvo visited over 200 towns since tbe Baltimore Convention, and have found that there are from ton to thirty, and, in some instances, os many as 100 Republicans who will support Greeley; while the defection of Demo cratic voters is infintisiznal. Tbe German Re publicans claim 9,000 voters in this State, and give us the assurance that seven-eighths of this class of voters will cast their votes for the Lib eral ticket. If this be so, the State will most as suredly be carried for the.Befonn ticket. From various parts of the State, wo receive the most encouraging news. The Grantites are relying upon the prestige of former successes, rather than excessive labor, to carry them through. In short, there is no enthusiasm for their ticket. The charges of, corruption upon the reigning dynasty they know, to be true, even if not admitted by them, and, as a consequence, the ticket drags heavily. . The Liberals will elect four of the eight Con gressmen, and possibly one more. Mr. Mitchell will be re-elected from the Milwaukee District by at least 10,000 majority, while Eldridge will beat his competitor anywhere from 4,000 to 6.000 votes. The Legislative ticket will be close in the State; but the chances are decidedly favorable to the Liberals. A gain of eleven Assemblymen will give us the control of the Lower Branch; and, of this number, the four Counties of Mil waukee, Waukesha, Bodge, and Jefferson alone will furnish a gain of ten. A gain of six Sena tors will give us the control of .the Higher Legis lative Branch; and these, it is believed, can be secured. All in all, the skies look bright in Wisconsin.. Let no Liberal feel the slightest discouragement.' Let us advance our whole line upon the enemy, and, with the watch-words of Reconciliation and Reform, victory will porch upon the banners borne by the Liberal army in the November con test. B. A DEBATABLE QUESTION, Pittsbdbgh, Penn., Oct. 16.— The Gazette will contain an editorial to-morrow morning arguing that the recent amendment to the Sixth Section of the Sixth Article of the Constitution of the State of Pennsylvania takes the election of State Treasurer out of the hands of the Legislature and remands it to the the people, that as some time must be consumed in developing the details of the law bearing on the subject, the election will be remanded to the people at the general election next year. Under this view Hon. Bio Mackey, the present incumbent, will hold over. The question will no doubt excite animate discussion, it being one of considerable importance. DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION AT COLUMBUS, OHIO. Columbus, 0., Oct. 16.—The Democratic State Central Committee met here to-day, with prom inent Democrats from all parts of Ohio to con sult relative to the political situation. The meet ing was strictly private. A very hopeful spirit was manifested, and it was agreed to prosecute the campaign with vigor. Among those present were Goo. N. Pendleton, Geo. W. McCook, Sen ator Thurman, and several members of Con gress. NEW YORK CITY POLITICS. New York, Oct. 16.—The Liberal-National Committee have issued an address reviewing the late elections, and urging voters to renewed vigor in the campaign. A meeting of the German-American Reform Association last night indorsed the nomination of O’Brien for Mayor. To-day, 39,033 persons were registered in this city, against 63,080 on the second day last year, and 9,246 in 1863. The total registering thus far is 06,512, against 01,816 the same period in 1871, and 92,669 in 1868. NOTES FROM OUR CORRESPONDENCE. Dubuque, lowa.— There was a small gathering at Dubuque, Oct. 15, to hear a Bourbon speech from LeGrand Byington. He' failed to evoke any enthusiasm. “ Prospects are doily increas ing that Dubuque will give Greeley a handsome majority.” Elkhart, Ind. —“The Liberal Republicans and Democrats all feel sure of a majority of at least 5,000 in Indiana, for Greeley. Kane and DuPaqb County, III.—A 3?emo itlltlL cratio ConTention for the district comprising tno counties of Kane and DnPage will be held at St. Charles. Oct. 19, to nominate candidates for Sen* ator and Representative in the Legislature. anscELLANEotra. Caibo, Oct. 16.—The Cairo Bulletin , the Head* ing Democratic paper in Egypt, in a loader this morning, evidently favors the President’s San Domingo and Mexican policies, and gives Charles Snmner and Carl Sohurz no sympathy. The ar ticle creates not a Itttle talk. Dubuque, Ia. t Oct. 16.—The name of J. B. Weaver, Republican candidate for Elector in the Sixth District of lowa, has been withdrawn on account of ineligibility, and that.of George W. Yocum substituted. General .Weaver is Assessor of Internal Revenue, and holds an office of profit and trust under the Government, and therefore is not eligible. Boston, Oct. 16.—The Central Committee of the Labor Reform party of Massachusetts have urgently requested that Labor men ignore old parties m the coming Presidential election, as their cause has been ignored, and vote for neither, candidate. Columbus, Oct. 16.—The Republican State Central Committee have issued a special circu lar urging all County Committees to perfect their organizations, and have resolved to prose cute the balance of the campaign vigorously. All localities that wish meetings should notify the State Committee at once. St. Louis, Oct. 16.— The Liberal Republicans held a Convention to-day, and nominated a fall connty ticket made up mainly of selections from the Republican and Democratic Connty tickets. The following are the nominees: Presiding Justice of Connty Court, Charles Speck O’Con nor, Democrat; Sheriff, P. 0. Taylor, Demo crat ; Connty Collector, Charles A. Montz.

Harbangh; Justice of the Peace, Albert Schcn; Represen tatives, John GreuseL James Bums, H. D. Ed wards. James Caples, John J. Speed. NEW YORK. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune, STOCKS. New York, Oct. 16.—The stock market in the main was irregular to-day and lower. Union Pa cific suddenly became the feature during the morning, and advanced from 39% to 40%, on a largo business. Erie advanced from 52% to 52%, and late in the day declined to 50%. This move ment in Erie was in sympathy with London fluc tuations, inspired, it is said, by Americans. In the afternoon Canton advanced from 97% to 101 on a moderate busi ness. Pacific Mail ranged from 86% to 87%, and Panama from 146% to 147%, and both stocks were steady during the day, although very quiet. Western Union opened at 76%, de clined to 75%, rallied to 77%, and afterwards declined to 75%, with the late afternoon deal ings at 76 to 76%. The balance of the market was generally heavy, and declined from % to 2% per cent, with considerable pressure to sell at intervals. The greatest decline was in Wabash, which fell off from 74% to 71% Business was generally less active than yesterday. Some of the large holders of stocks have been free sellers during the excitement and buoyancy of the past two days. The mar ket at the final close was firmer, with a recovery of %-to % per cent from the lowest point of the afternoon. ... THE MOSEY MARKET. The Treasury to-day was enabled to buy only $94,100 bonds at par in gold out of an offering of SBOO,OOO. Money steady, and ranged from: 4 to 6 per cent on call. Prime business notes quoted at 9 to 12 percent. FOREIGN EXCHANGE advanced to 109 for 60 days, and 110% for sight, which formed an interesting feature in financial circles. This advance was made by a leading prime banking firm, and the other bankers fol lowed suit. The actual business of the day was at about 103% for long sterling, and 110% for short sight. The advance in exchange was brought about by a scarcity of merchants* bills against the shipments of grain and other produce from Northern ports, and cotton from Southern porta, as well as the maturing of hankers* credits. Sight exchange is now at a point which admits of special shipments, and is also 1% per cent above sixty.day bills, an unusually wide difference. Ac cording to the present discount rate, the ‘differ ence ought to be about 1 per cent, but bankers are indifferent about drawing sight bills freely pending a meeting of the Bank of England Di rectors, to-morrow. The prospect of ehippiug specie was much discussed among bankers to-day, but opinions differ widely. GOLD firmer and rather more active. The advance was due chiefly to the improvement in the foreign exchanges. Price ranged from 112% to 113%. PACIFIC RAILROAD SECURITIES. Central Pacific bonds closed at 99@99%. BBEAP3TUFF3. The inquiry for flour was moderate. Large arrivals checked the demand. At the opening low grades were steady,vmedium grades heavy, and family extras firm but quiet. No. 2 and su perfine in fair demand and firm. At the close the. market was fairly active for family and good' Shipping. Other grades doll.

A Firm Policy to Be Adopted Toward Mexico..,, Texan Border Distorknces Investi gated by the Mexie&n An thorities. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune, IMPORTANT CLAIM BEFORE THE SOUTHERN CLAIMS COMMISSION. Washington, Oct. 16. —An important claim was partly heard to-day by the Southern Claftns Com mission. The claimant is Mrs. Anna*M. Fitz hugh, of Fairfax County, Ya. Her farm was occupied alternately by tho Confederate and Federal forces, hnt she having a letter from General Winfield Scott, ashing the army officers, as a personal favor to him, not to destroy hez property, neither side did so. Tho husband of the claimant was General Wm. Fitzhugh, for many years a State Senator of Vir ginia, ‘ who, shortly before the war, liberated all of his slaves/and provided for theii colonization in Liberia. Quito a number of wit nesses wore examined to prove the loyalty oi Mrs. Fitzhugh, although she has tho’ order given her by Colonel Green, then Chief of the Quar termaster's Department, who was also present during the hearing to-day, stating that the Gov ernment needed the wood on her farm, and intended to immediately cut it. Tie witnesses testified that on 2,000 acres ef her farm fifty cords per acre were cut. The Government’s price for standing timber at the time was $1 per cord. The claim is for 6375,000, which is the largest in amount that has jet been hied before the Commission. The Commissioners intimated that they had a certain witness in rebuttal that they would examine, and, as the counsel for the claimant have not concluded their case, another hearing will be granted. _! OUR RELATIONS WITH MEXICO. In view of the fact that a considerable portion of the forthcoming message of the President will relate to Mexican affairs, and that: the Ad ministration propose a positive policy in that di rection if the facts justify, it has made the headquarters of the Mexican Legation a resort of some importance here' of late. .The Brownsville Commission, appointed un der an act of Congress last ' winter, to investigate the crimes of the lawlessness on the Bio Grande, have made their report to the State Department, and it is understood that it deals severely with the negligence of the Mexi can Government to punish outrages : in that quarter, or protect the lives and property of American citizens. But the Mexican. Govern ment does not propose to lot this investigation into these disorders be a one-sided affair. It has also appointed & commission to take, counter evidence os to the, cause of these with/ instruc tions to report as speedily as possible, and at all events before the- assembling of the American Congress. The Mexicans charge the border dif ficulties to that condition of society on both sides where the law is not respected,' and where the strong, irrespective of nationality, prey upon the weak in the same careless defiance. They propose to charge that so far! as the report of the American Commissioners is concerned, and which is now in possession of our Government, that it is made simply in the " interests of speculators, and that other consid erations besides motives of public policy in fluenced the American Commissioners in mak ing their statements so entirely one-sided. It is stated that Mexico also proposes to be firm in this matter, and, although relatively weak, will not submit to any exorbitant claims fer damages, especially upon ex parie statements of facts. Asa compromise, and with a-view to placing the case fairly in the may of Interna tional treatment, the Mexican Government will agree to a special convention having power to make a treaty with regard to the country in fested with the alleged outrages. Mr. Nelson, the Mexican Minister resident, is now on his way to this city, charged with the special mis sion of arranging this Convention. The legation here also claims that various misrepresentations have been made from time to time with regard to tho harmonious workings of the Mexican Amfln’ran-nTflfm Commission, now in session here. Among other things it has been stated that the death of Franz Lieber, Esq., of this Commission, caused a dead lock. This is especially denied. The Mexican representatives state that there is no disagreement, nor is there any cause for any. The removal of Guzman, the Mexican umpire, has only the' signifi cance that he was recalled by his Government simply to present the good will of the American Government, and to settle all international difficulties amicably. The inter national difficulties of Mexico are so great that the Government there, above all things; desires harmony in its American diplomatic relations. It was announced by. the Mexican Charge d’ Affairs to-day that Joso- Maria Tgleaias, late Minister of Justice at the . City of Mexico, and one of the most promi nent and upright citizens of his “country, had been appointed to succeed Guzman, so that, in future, everything is expected to go oh smooth ly in the Commission. According to the Con vention under which this Commission came into existence, there can hardly bo a posesibility for disagreement over contested claims.' . In the cose of the failure of the two Governments to agree upon one umpire, eace is empowered to select its own umpire, and the cases upon which disagreements arise are settled by lot. : Vinnie Beam has just finished a new work of sculpture, which has been sold to a Philadel phian for $4,000.
