942. Comparing this vote with that of 1878,
it show's a Republican gain of 69 per cent,
and a Democratic gain of 46 per cent. If
the same rates of increase continue, tlje Re
publican, vote of the »State will he 129,410
and the Democratic vote 67,429, a total of
198,339, which will give a Republican ma
jority of 61,284. In this statement the Green
back vote, estimated at 17,000, is not con
sidered. Add this to the above Republican
and Democratic vote and it will give a total
for the State of 215,139 votes. This ratio of
increase may not prevail throughout the
State, but in no case Is it believed that the
total vote w ill lie less than 200,000, or a ma

ocrats, and the House about 125 Republicans

The Balance of the Campaign Fund.

Republican Committee headquarters this
morning it was agreed to use the remainder
of the campaign fund to prosecute the Chi
nese letter case, and find out not only who

Garfield Presented with a Gold-headed
Cleveland, November 4. —Tne Catholics
have presented Garfield with a gold-headed
cane, voted for him at the Cathedral. He
said in response :
" You have offered it as a significant sym
bol, and 1 àecept it with the meaning you
have given to it. The head of gold may not
unfitly represent the solid basis of our Na
tional credit, based upon the solid value of
specie ; the strength, stability and beauty of I
the wood that supports it indicate the sym
rnetry and strength of onr institutions. 1
believe it is said that the patriarch Jacob I
worshipped leaning on the top of his staff.
Our institutions are safe so long as our people
and Government are found leaning upon the
staff of solid worth and of public and private
virtue. I accept this all the more gladly be
cause it tomes acro.ss one of the lines that
divide us religiously, for in our country men
may adopt whatever religion-they choose,
or go.religion at all' if they.prefer ; the re
ligion of our people is left .to their voluntary
choice arid not to the control of any human
law." *
Comments of the Press on the Result.
New York, November 4.— The Times says:
The Democratic newspapers of this city and
vicinity are sadly at variance with each other
in their explanation of their overwhelming
defeat. One organ puts the blarite upon bad
management by tin* Democrats and the
machine distribution of the Republicans.
Another professes alarm at this apotheosis of
Grantism. It is generally ai'geod, however,
that the doubtful States, including New York
of course, w ere colonized by repeaters from
some undiscovered country in which there
was no election on Tuesday. It does not
seem to have occurred to the minds of these
wiseacres that the people of the United States
have had something to do with this election.
The Democrats have failed through all the
canvass to understand the temper of the peo
ple. They thought that voies could lie made
by using childish tricks and stories. They
are still in the dark so far as the popular
understanding and judgment are concerned.
Why not come to the national conclusion
that the majority of the voters of the United
States are weary of the Democratic party and
its pretences.
The Herald says: Allowing for the in
crease of the voting population during four
years, Hancock's city majority should not
have been less than 60,000 if the Democrats
had had their own, but as a matter of fact it
lias shrunk to 15,967 less than Tilden's. A
similar shrinkage has occurred in Brooklyn
also through sympathetic influences. It is
these shrinkages which have given the State
of New York to Garfield. Now, who is re
sponsible for them ? Everybody knows that
the responsibility man is John Kelly. He is
the man who broke dowiv the Democratic
party in the State last year and elected a
Republican Governor by a plurality of 42,777.
when the Democratic vote if united was large
enough to have re-elected the Democratic
Governor by a majority of 34,789. This gave
the whole vast .State patronage into the hands
of Hancock's political adversaries to lie used
in aid of Garfield this year. That was the
first act in the tragedy. The second act was
played a fortnight ago, when Kelly forced a
follower of his own as the Democratic nomi
nee for Mayor, with the desperate design of
making the Democratic presidential ticket
carry the load through for his own personal
advantage, no matter how much harm it
might do to Hancock's vote.
The Times' New Orleans special says : The
election of Garfield it is admitted has virtu
ally disbanded the Democrats, at least on a
national basis. At the same time it is thought
that Garfield will be the last Republican
President, and that a new, vigorous party
will arise and sink old issues.
Memphis, November 4—The Avalanche
declares that the denunciation of Garfield as
a thief, perjurer, and liar, w as one of the
chief elements in the Democratic failure. The
low character of Barnnm's campaign and his
fantastic tricks were smother end. The con
sequences of the election will l>e the dissolu
tion of the two solid section^.
The Appeal says: The Democrats have
been badly beaten. The solid South stands
almost alone for Democratic principles. The
sections are more sternly defiant than in 1860.
The defeat is the result of appeal to sectional
prejudice by Conkling and the leaser satalites
of the stump who slander the South.
Augusta, November!.—The Chronicle and
Constitutionalist says in reference to the elec
tion : The South at least has the satisfaction
of knowing that .she has kept to her part of
the bargain, and if the hero of Gettysburg is
not President it is not her fault. We think,
too, she has for the best time been led lamb
like to the slaughter. Her experiments with
loyal civilians and military heroes have not
been very propitious in the past, and the fu
ture holds ont no hopes.
The Next Congress.
Washington, November!.—The Keening
Star, independent, estimates the Republican
majority over all opposition in the next
House at from 2 to 5, but considers it riot im
probable that after the srnöke clears away
the independents may be found to hold the
balance of power.
Chicago, November 4.—Jf the California
Assembly is Republican, As now reported,
the »Senate will certainly be Republican by
I one, two or three majority,

4.—The Times'
From the dis
patches received at the headquarters of the
Republican Congressional Committee Mc
Pherson has revised his figures on the next
House of Representative*, and now claims
that the Republicans have elected 150 mem
bers, with two districts ia Arkansas, one in
Tennessee and one in Missouri still in doubt.
The 150 Republican members claimed to be
elected do not include any who axe classified
as Greenbackers or Readjisters. McPherson
is confident that the Republican majority in
the next House will be at least five.

follow ing vote : Garfield, 14,096 ; Hancock,
14,784; Davis, 14,407 ; Rosencraus, 14,578.
This reducing of expected Democratic gains
in the city makes the .State very close and
doubtful. G. S. GRIMES.

Chicago, to-day :

To J. A. Viall , Helena, M. T. :

except New Jersey, and possibly California.

Northern State. Hancock gets only the
»Solid South. The American Eagle shakes
the internals out of the Democratic party.
Political Opinions.
W Asm XGTOX, N ovember 4.—Gen. N lahone
of Virginia, is reported to have telegraphed
to this city that he will not enter into any
caucus w ith the Democrats, but will vote on
all public matters according to the dictates
of his ow n judgment. It is claimed here
that he w ill generally act with the Republi
A dispatch received at the office of the
Secretary of the Senate to-day states that not
only Casey Young, of Memphis, but Con
gressman Atkins, of the 8th Tennessee dis
trict, have been defeated. Atkins is chairman
of the House Committee on Appropriations.
Chicago, November 4.—The Inter-Ocean's
Washington special says : It is impossible
to tell with accuracy whether Garfield or
Hancock has the largest popular vote, or
what the Republican majority in the House
will be, or whether the »Senate is Democratic
or Republican without the casting vote of
Vice President Arthur. As to the popular
vote, it seems to lie near a stand off between
the two candidates, but this is owing to the
immense and fraudulent majorities in the
Southern States, whose colored vote has
wholly or in part been suppressed. It was
this that gave Tilden his majority of nearly
a quarter of a million on the popular vote,
which was not a lawful expression of the le
gal voters. But in most of the »Southern States
Hancock's majorities have been very much
le.ss than Tilden's, while in the Northern
States Garfield's majorities have been uni
formly larger than those of Hayes. The
popular verdict in the aggregate, if honestly
expressed, would be immensely in favor of
The Vote of New York.
New York, November 4.r-The Times to
morrow will publish a revised list of the ma
jorities in this State. Garfield's majority is
fixed at 23,000, with assurance that the offi
cial returns, which cannot be canvassed until
next week, will not vary materially from
these figures.

Opinions of the English Press on the
Presidential Election.
The Daily Telegraph, devotes its leading ar
ticle to the election, and says : " So far as
National issues are concerned the Democratic
party have fought aud lost its last great bat
tle. No future Presidential campaign will
be conducted under banners which were
originally hoisted by Thomas Jefferson, and
which symbolized hatred to England upon
the foremost plank of its platform. That
this feeling has passed away is clearly evin
ced by tlie fact that in the struggle between
Garfield and Hancock the sympathies of
Englishmen have been all along in favor of
the former."
The Manchester Guardian, the most influ
ential of the provincial press, joins w ith the
London press in congratulating both parties
on the decisive result of the election, leaving
no opening for disputes. It says: "There
seems to be no reason why, if the Democrats
do not change their tactics, the Repbulicans
should not hold office for another twenty
years. The former would do well to let the
question of State rights drop as far as pos
sible into obscurity. It behoves them to lind
another rallying cry. This may eventually
be furnished by free trade, which a succesion
of bad harvests or gradual exhaustion of the
soil may bring into the range of practical
polities. There is no possibility of a mollifi
cation of the tariff' at least for four years.
There is, however, some consolation for this
in the fact that the Republican policy is
otherwise friendly to England."
