They have elected 29 Senators and the Democrats only a 0, and have chosen tour-fifths of the Representatives of the Legislature. They have elected 4 Repre sentatives in Congress by large majorities, aud have given Governor Robie a popular majority of 17.000.

'V ash INGTON, September 6.—The Second -National Bank of Xenia, Ohio, having made good its impaired capital has been authorized to resume business. j . Republican Jubilee Augusta, September 8. —To-night the Republicans of Augusta held a great jubi lee over the result of the election returns received at Meonian ball, and speeches were made by citizens and visitors. At 1 9 o'clock a procession formed on ater street and marched to the residence of Blaine, cheering all along the line. Arriv ing in front of Blaine's residence the band played and the great crowd cheered for Blaine. In response, Blaine advanced to the entrance of his house amidst a storm of cheers aud addressed the people as fol lows : '* Fellow citizens and old friends. The Republicans of Maine may well con gratulate themselves on the magnificent victory which they have won. Four years ago this evening we were overwhelmed and humiliated by the loss of the State. We rejoice now over an unparallelled tri umph which is registered by the choice of both branches of the legislature, by the election of all representatives in congress, of all county officers in every county ex cept one and by a popular majority for Governor Robie ol perhaps 15,0U(J votes. The cause ol this Democratic overthrow, gentlemen, is known to us all. Our can vass has been conducted on one great issue. Our papers have kept that constantly be fore the people. Every speaker from every platform has enumerated, defended, and enforced it. Its issue of protection to American labor. The tariff has been al most the only question discussed iu our canvass and the people have responded nobly. They understand the subject fully. They knew the details of the Morrison tariff bill and they read therein precise results which would follow if our oppon ents should obtain control of our national government. They know that the Morri son bill enacted into law would seriously cripple, il not utterly destroy the leading industrial interests in Maine : that it would reduce the wages of every laboring man and stop every new manufacturing enter prise in the »State. Seeing this, the people have protested agains^ the enactment of so j destructive a measure and have set the seal of their disaaprohation upon the Dem ocratic party that supports it. Many Dem ocrats of Maine who have never before wa vered in their allegiance to party have ranged themselves to-day on the side of protection to American industry by voting the full Republican ticket. Their leaders could not hold them. Party discipline is powerless against convictions of men. The issue on the temperance amendment to the constitution has been very properly and very rigidly separated from the political contest of the State to-day. Many Demo crats voted for it and some Republicans voted against it. The Republican party, by the desire of leading temperance men, took no action as a party on the amend ment. For myself I decided not to vote at all on the question. I took this position because I am chosen by the Republican party as a repressntative of national issues aud by no act of mine shall any question be obtruded into a national campaign which belongs properly to the domain of State politic. Certain advocates of prohibition and certain opponents ol prohibition are each seeking to drag the issue into the National canvass and thus try to exclude from pop ular consideration the questions which press for the nation'sdecision. If there be any questions which belong solely" to the police power of a State it is the control of the liquor traffic, and wise men will not neglect the national issues in a year of na tional contest. The judicious friends of a protective tariff, which is the practical issue of the campaign, will notdivert their votes to the question of prohibition which is not a practical issue in the national cam . paign. I accept with great pleasure vonr congratulations on the v«»iu of Ibis eity aud surrounding towns iu Keuebec county. I do not disguise from you that I am pro foundly gratified with the result. I am desirous of the good Çopiniom of all "men. ! I am sure I esteem beyond all others the good opinion of these excellent people among whom I have passed nearly all the years of my adult life, and who know me intimately from young manhood as a fel- 1 low-citizen, neighbor and friend. I return my thanks for your call, and still heartier thanks for your great work of to-day. j i ! Senator Miller Interviewed. Chicago, September 8. — U. S. Senator Jno. F. Miller, of California, arrived with his family last evening from an extended trip East. »Senator Miller left here imme diately after the close of the Republican Convention. Speaking of the present politi cal outlook, the Senator said : "I have talked^vith a great many gen tlemen interested in the coming election— that is, men who are not hot-headed on the subject of politics or ringleaders in any particular faction. In regard to New York, the Republicans feel assured of the success of their ticket. I judge there will lie a hard fight. Much depends on Ohio in Oc tober." "How about the Pacific Slope ?" "We will carry California by 10,000 ma jority at least. Nevada and Oregon will surely go Republican." »Senator Miller starts for home to-day. British Scientific Association. Philadelphia, Sept. 4.— John Bidnlph Martin, of London, England, read a paper on the future of the United States. His main point was embraced in the inquiry as to the means by which the enormous pop ulation which the rapid occupation of oar soil foreshadowed was to be fed. He con tended that Great Britain would long sup ply the market for cheap American food products ; that as a result ol railway build ing we would have large accumulation of bonafide railway securities ; that the ulti mate abolition of the national debt would create a fall in the rate of interest which wonld be seriously felt by those depending on fixed incomes and further result in the lowering of wages and prices generally ; that the continuance a large national in come from custom duties on imports would make necessary this abolition, and finally, that with an increase in population and a diffusion of wealth individual fortunes will be less easily made and less opportu nity given for gigantic operations in pro duce and stocks. Excited Market. Chicago, Sept. 6.— To-day has been marked by the greatest excitement on 'Change witnessed in many months owing to the steady and heavy advance in corn. Trading in other commodities has been dwarfs in comparison. Shortly be fore noon 58Ô cents was being paid in cash and all offerings were eagerly taken. Sep tember option rose to57i ; October to 541, aud November to 47f, with the shorts frantically endeavoring to cover their con tracts. The market then shaded oft Ic, rallied again and is now quoted at 57 for »September ; 54 1 for October, and 46 j for November. Ohio Labor Trouble. Cincinnati, September 6. —None of the non-union moulders dared return to work at Redway & Briton's foundry this mom after the severe handling by the crowd last night when they left their work. A large crowd was alniut the foundry this morn ing. The police were there also, but seemed to lie unable to prevent collection of the people. One man last night, alter being knocked down and beaten by the strikers, drew a pocket knife and stabbed one of his assailants in the back. He was arrested and his case continued until Monday. Great Fire in Cleveland. Millions of Lumber Destroyed Great Conflagration. Cleveland, O., September 7.—A great conflagration is raging on the "Flat.*' The entire fire department is in service and telegrams have been sent to Akron, Erie, Youngstown, Painesville, Sandusky and Toledo for assistance. The origin of the tire is unknown. It is supposed by some to be incendiarism, but tht most probable theory is that sparks from a tug set on fire early in the evening a pile of shavings, from which the flames spread until the Woods, Perry & Co.'s extensive lumber yard was ablaze. The tire continued to extend, defying all efforts of the firemen. The lumber yards of Potter, Birdsall & Co., and C. G. King & Co. were also con sumed. The Variety Iron Works were de stroyed, Stanley's candle factory burned, and a part of Sherwin, Williams & Co.'s varnish works, and at 10 o'clock the confla gration threatened to become still more extensive. About ten acres of lumber and frame buildings were in flames atone time, j and huge clouds of smoke, thickly studded with burning cinders, were blown by the i changing wind for miles, causing great ex ! citement lest the cinders should kindle fires in every direction and perhaps lay waste a large part of the city. At 7:30 the fire was confined to an area of two hun dred feet square, and in the midst of these the flames were savagely burning and sending out myriads of sparks and lighted pine torches. Slowly the tire gained on the firemen, sparks being carried over their heads and set fire to a small spot in the center of a pile of lumber, and because of its height and fierceness of the Haines nothing could be done until the fire reached the end of the pile, when a stream could be could be directed that way. The lanes or alleys were so narrow that it was impossi ble to get a stream to play on any but the edges of different piles of lumber. The spot where the fire first started was built of green lumber from the Michigan pine woods, and although it would not be ex pected to burn well the heat was so intense that the element continued beyond the power of the department to control it. By 8 o'clock it was in alleys 3 and 4, and as the area of burning wood became larger the men were forced to spread out and less effective work could be done. At this time some of the firemen were in alleys almost completely surrounded by lire and to keep from burning the stream ol water was directed against them. Nearly every man was thus wet down and only thus could they secure comlort. At 8:30 Carter street became impassable. The heat prevented any one from going by a building, and in some places the firemen could not stand it. The fire was under such headway that the engines which could be kept in the street were unable to cope with it. Much cause of delay was found in the water. It was dirty and the engines would get clogged. In this manner one of the engines which had been throwing a stream on the south west side of the yard near the railroad was forced to snspend work for a time for re pairs. The shops and buildings lrom Scranton avenue to Woods, Perry & Co.'s plaining mill, on Carter street, was on tire and it looked as though nothing could save them. High piles of lumber, strong houses with thick walls of brick were crushed and crumbled into ashes. The liâmes shot up one hundred feet into the air, and myriads of sparks as large as a bushel basket hov ered and floated amid the glare and smoke, seeming to be amidst the stars. Theawlul glare penetrated to the furthermost parts of tbp city, and the community turned out almost, eu imisae to witness me awful spec tacle. They collected on the house-tops, shops, all the thoroughfares, and covered the hills like swarming liees. In the very heart of the conflagration were men whose property was buring up, toiling, firemen, policemen, and a large number of adven turous loafers. All but the latter fought the tire with courage and determination. But the immense furnace roared and hissed, complacently mocking them, and reached Oht gradually and sharply sucking into its vortex everything possible to reach. The sparks puffed up like chatt - from a fanning machine and fell like a shower of rain. »Some were not sparks but great brands, the terrible heat buoying them slowly up like toy baloons and the wind carrying them miles away. When the fire was approaching the occupants of Potter, Birdsalls *!i Co.'s office it was decided to move ont. John Mc Bride and his wife lived in the upper rooms. Mr. McBride has been so ill that he was unable to move. The police officers and other willing hands carried Mr. Mc Bride outside, and he was moved across the railroad, to a place of safety. His household goods were taken to a friend's house near by. A large safe in W ood. Perry & Co.'s office was rolled out with the combined strength of twenty men and man} r crowbars and that heavy piece of furniture was soon rolled up the street. The office of the Cleveland Board of Lum ber dealers was likewise cleaned out, and by the time the fiâmes reached these three offices there was nothing of value in them to burn. The lost is estimated at from $2,000,000 to $2,500,000. It is impossible to give accurate figures. At 1 o'clock the fire was practically under control. Relief engines arrived from Akron and Erie. Others are ex pected. The militia of the city was ordered to be in readiness, if necessary, to do police duty, but they have not yet been ordered yet. Wood, Perry & Co. lose a quarter of a million. Davidson loses$50,000. Both their planing mills being destroyed. Hubbell & Westover, lumber yard ; loss $40,000. King & Co., lumber yard destroyed ; loss $100, 000. Variety Iron Works, loss not ascer tained. At 1 o'clock the fire has crossed the Bee Line track and is eating up the lumber yards of Hubbell & Westover and Cay wood & Hutchins. The fire is surrounded by the Cleveland fire department and visiting engines, and unless the wind changes the tire will be confined to its present limits. Cleveland, O., Sept. 8— The fire burn ed itself out in a southeasterly direction and then stopped. The ruins are smoking and smouldering yet and the engines are throwing water on them. The losses and insurance are as follows as nearly as can yet be learned : Woods, Perry & Co., $675, 000; insurance $300,000. O. N. King & Co., $65,000 ; insurance $25,000. Potter, Birdsall &Co., $125,000; insurance$57.000. House & Davidson, $60,000; insurance $42,000. C. C. C. & I. railway $25,000 ; in surance unknown. Other known losses distributed among half a dozen people amount to an additional $100,000. Senator Anthony's Funeral. Providence, R. I., September 6.— The funeral of Senator Anthony was solemnized at the First Congregational church at noon to-day. and was the occasion of the gath ering of representative men of the Nation and State such as was probably never be fore equalled in this city. Bank Statement. New York, September 6. —Bank state ment lor the week just ended : Loans in crease, $1,454,100 ; specie decreased, $210, 500; deposits increase, $411,500; reserve decrease, $1,571,475. The banks now hold $20,539,900 in excess of the legal require ments. Pastoral Letter. Baltimore, Md., September 8.—A pas toral letter from Archbishop Gibbons was read in all Catholic churches of the arch diocese to-day, relating to the assembling of the plenarary council in November. The letter states: "Our Holy Father, Leo III., out of his paternal solicitude for the welfare of all the faithful committed to his care, has asked all bishops of the church in the United States to assemble in plenary council to consider the best ^ means for promotion of the salvation of souls in this portion of the Lord's vineyard, and because of infirm health his eminence the cardinal and archbishop of New York, who was so well qualified to preside not only on account of his high office but also his mature wisdom and it has pleased him to appoint us to convoke by his apostolic authority, the plenary council of Baltimore, and preside over as apostolic delegate. We therefore, dearly beloved brethren and children, now make known to you that, iu witness of his authority, we have by our letters of date March 27th of this year, convoked the third plenary counsel to con vene in our metropolitan church at Balti more, on the 9th day of November, iu this year of our Lord, 1884. Eighteen years have now elapsed since the last plenary council was held and we have reason to be devotedly thankful to God for the steady progress which religion has made in the United States since that period. It cannot fail to be a source of consolation and benefit to the chief patrons of the church of Amer ica to meet again after so long an interval to recount their trials, their hopes aud their success ; of their respective fields of labor and the interchange of views to en lighten each other by mutual council, and derive that strength and confidence which result from a reunion of earnest men en gaged in the same holy missions." Every state and diocese of the union will be rep resented, at the approaching council by prelates and priests, and although they are descended from divers nations and speak every European tongue, they are all united by lKinds of common faith and animated by a spirit of fraternal charity. The object for which this council is summoned as you are well aware is not to formulate new dogmas of faith for the only doctrine we preach is, ' The faith once delivered to the saints,' nor will our deliberations have anything of a political significance to re dress, no political aspiration to gratify. The church of God has no direct relations with politics. May the »Supreme Legisla ture of the universe be the sole suggestion and guide of all our judgements, so that we may in no wise stray from the path of equity. May we so temper justice with charity that our decisions may lie approved by Him who sees kings reign and the law given decree of just things." A Procession Mobbed. BRUSSELS, »September 7.—The clericals from all the provinces, numbering many thousand, paraded here to-day amid the vehement hissing and howling of the dense crowds of lookers on, who soon became more demonstrative and blocked the pas sage of the procession and tore down their banners. Fierce scuffles ensued and many persons, including several policemen, were powerless to stop the disorder. The Gens d Armes and civil guard were called out and attempted to reorganize the proces sion, but their efforts were futile, however, ana the confusion became general. The mob stopped the procession at various places. The clericals finally finding them selves unable to advance slowly dispersed. The melee gradually subsided, but great excitement prevailed the whole evening. There were 186 arrests made. It is re ported that three of the injured died. Troops were stationed at various points to preserve order. Antwerp, .September 7.—There is great excitement here to-day and many riots, in sympathy with the outbreak in Brussels against the clericals. The Gens d Amies dispersed the mob. A number of arrests were made. The French and China Mar. Paris, Scut. 7. — Le Temps explains the recent report that the French had again bombarded Ive-Lung as resulting from the fact that while Admiral Courbet was on board the gunboat Bayard inspecting the defenses of Ke-Lung,the Chinese fired from their fortifications on the Bayard, wound ing four sailors. London, Sept. 7.—A dispatch from Foo Chow says: The Chine^ officials here have been notified of the declaration of war against F'rance. Shanghai has been declared a neutral port.

Reception of Cleveland. Elmira, N. Y., Sept. 8.—Seven thousand men were in line to-night in the parade in honor of Governor Cleveland. The pro cession was two hours in passing the re viewing stand. After the parade was dis missed the Governor entered the hotel and held an informal reception. In the course of the evening the Governor was presented with a banner bearing his portrait. The head was encircled by four stars, typifying "Sobriety," "Justice," "Honesty," and "Re form." Behind the hills was the sun just rising and labled "Victory." After a gen eral handshaking the Govornor retired for the night. To-morrow he attends the fu neral of Secretary Folger at Geneva. Folger's Funeral. Geneva, N. Y., September 9. —The town is rapidly filling with visitors.

It is very warm. Pennsylvania Coal Miners. Pittsburgh, Sept. 8.—A telegram from Monongahela City says: The miners state that the State officials have interested themselves in the strike, and at a secret meeting held after the adjournment of the convention it was decided to call out all the bituminous miners of Western Penn sylvania. This includes the river and rail road miners aud those working in the Clearfield regions, in all about 20,000 men. The object in ordering the general strike is to curtail production with the expecta tion that it will improve prices. Declines. San Francisco, September 7.— Clarence Wheeler, the famous wrestler, has replied, declining to meet Petero Delmas, the French champion, on the terms proposed by the latter in a communication published a few days ago, but is willing to do so for any sum that Delmas may name.

Naples, Sept. 9. —During the last twen ty-four hours there have been 800new cases of cholera and 300 deaths in this city. The city presents a gloomy aspect. The images of the Saints with acolytes bearing lighted tapers formed the head of a pro cession through the streets who invoked the help of the Virgin Mary. A large crowd assembled outside of the church ol San Gennaro inconsequence of a report that the Virgin Mary had descended upon the altar and bestowed her blessings upon the people. The doors of the church were closed and the crowd attempted to break them open. Troops arriving, the doors were opened and the multitude rush ed iu and fell upon their knees and engaged in fervent prayers. King Humbert, after visiting the poorer portions of the city to-day, inspected Chris talline hospital. He declined the use of disenfectants while making a tour of the wards in the hospital. The burial of the dead from the cholera fund is very difficult owing to the unusual large number so suddenly needing inter ment. A soldier suffering from a violent attack of the cholera was taken to the hospital and in his delirium threw himself from the window. King Humbert visited late in the day the Conchia hospital. An immense crowd tendered the king an ovation as he proceeded through the streets, ! bonfires were lighted throughout the city and disenfectants were freely used. * There's a complete breakdown here on ! the part of the authorities in relation to help for the cholera victims. Owing to the want of medical comforts and stretchers, the sick are left abandoned in the streets and no measures are or can be taken to re move the dead. Missouri Republican Convention.

Washington, Sept. 9.— Police officer Fowler was shot and killed this morning while in the performance of his duty by a negro desperado named John Langsler.

W elcome to Gen. Wolseley. Cairo, September 9.—A great crowd of Europeans and natives welcomed Gen. Wolseley. The General declares that he has as yet perfected no plan of operations and that it will require a couple of days to look about and consider the situation before definitely deciding upon a course of action. Therl is something tragical about the failure of the National Bank of New Brunswick, that staid and sober old Dutch city of Northern New Jersey. It is the old story of abuse of confidence and stock spec ulation. Losses have been covered till all hope ol restoration became impossible and the disclosure has been followed by ruin to hundreds and death to some. Families that but yesterday were supposed to be wealthy are to-day knowu to be penniless and in many eases those who have thus lost aïe orphans whose entire estate was in other hands. The real loss occurred weeks or months ago in the great downfall of stocks, but the truth lias been concealed, in the hope that stocks might came up again ■or that some further.speculation might give the means to make good the loss. Conceal ment was no longer ]>oss:Me. It is very unfortunate to occur at any time, but es pecially at a time when confidence was be giniug to be so well restored. Bank presi dents and.cashiers in the vicinity of Wall street need close watching. Dealing in stocks is considered legitimate gambling, but in view of the results we think it the most dangerous ol all kinds of gambling and no one employed in or around or con nected with a National Bank ought to be allowed to deal iu stocks. »Some searching and stringent legislation is necessary. Haste to get rich makes many poor. Hendricks has made another speech to the Hoosiers and the burden of his wail is that the Demociats are out of office and want to get back so that they can have the handling of those vast sums of money that he speaks about. He spoke of foui hundred millions lying idle in the treasury. It was not so in good old Democratic (days, much. Floyd would never have re signed or run away while there had been anything in the treasury to steal. Demo cratic policy would never have seen any money accumulate in the treasury. The country needs no assurances of Mr. Hen dricks on this point. And after all this is the shallowest of all the possible shams oi a demagogue. There is not a dollar of gold and silver in the treasury that is not represented by paper money out doing full service in the channels of trade. What gives the paper value is the known fact that it represents coin in the treasury. If the coin is put out in circulation the paper should be called in, and there would be nothing added to the wealth, and much subtracted from the convenience of the country. The news from the continent assures a general good crop and as a consequence wheat is on the decline. It is not enough taken into acccount that the present rate of gain in population in the United States is nearly two millions, and this is no small item of increase for our home market. The \ presence of the cholera in Europe will oc casion considerable disturbance of markets and the fear of worse ravages next season will further unsettle things and make many think of emigrating. It is an old i adage, " A store is no sore." The surplus can easily be carried and there will be need ! of every pound at good price. It is a good sign, if our surplus increases with our pop ulation, but ft ought to teach us to turn more to manufactures that we may make for ourselves what we have hitherto bought abroad and paid for in wheat. Buchanan's cabinet stole more in the last year of Democratic administration ten I times over than has been lost by dishonest j Republicans in the entire twenty-four j years ol Republican ascendancy. They stole the navy, the army, all the arsenals and public property of every description that they could lay hands on. If there had been any money in the treasury they would have stolen that. As Floyd coaid find nothing else to steal, his last theft was to steal the Indian bonds. The Re publicans turn out and punish their own thieves, but the only way that the country ever got rid of the Democratic thieves was to turn out the whole party and rather than give up power and the chanoo lor plunder the Democratic party tried to tear down and overthrow the natio.nal govern ment. The promise of the completion of the Oregon Short Line extension of the Union Pacific by the 15th of October has had a favoroble effect on the price of that s*ock in the market. But for the business sup plied to the main line by the branches to the Montana and Idaho mines it would bo poorer stock on the market. If a more generous policy were pursued other mining districts might be opened and permanent prosperity established. The trouble has been that the future has all along been sacrificed for the present. Some consider this good management. We do not. The true policy is one of honesty, vigor and economy in management, with rates liberal and equal as far as possible to all. An intelligent British scientist, whose address at Philadelphia is noticed in to day's dispatches, brings forcibly to notice the tendency that the rapid increase of w'aalth and the extinction of our National debt will have upon interest rates. They will naturally fall to the lowest point, so that capital in the future will proportion ately produce less than labor. Tennessee does not like the Mormons j and it speaks well for them. While we do not care to see blood shed and wonld make a proper distinction between km ves and dupes, we would like to see such an insur rection against Mormonism that there would not be a spot on earth where it could sp p ?nd its filthy garments in peace.
