ED. BORCHESDT, Editor & PnWisiier. THURSDAY, NOV. 23, 1876. THE SITUATION. Nothing definite in regard to the elec tion has yet transpired, further than that South Carolina has certainly gone Republican, and will cast her electoral votes for Hayes and Wheeler. In Loui siana the canvass is slowly progressing in the presence of five outside witnesses from each party. Sufficient returns have been received and examined to leave no doubt, in our mind, that the entire Re publican electoral ticket has been elect ed, throwing out such polls as even Northern Democrats must concede to be unfair. The jJarishes, or counties, can vassed by the Returning Board are ; Parish. Tilden. Hayes. Ascension 1,290 2,014 Assumption 1,680 1,602 Avoyelles 1,471 1,505 Calcasien 1,298 84 Cameron 345 53 Point Coupe 1,080 1,987 8t Henard 366 691 Et. James 953 1,988 tit John Baptist 743 1.387 The canvass in Florida will not, prob ably, be completed until some time next week. The latest returns from Demo cratic counties show majorities below es timates already made, and define more clearly than ever the success of the Re jmblicans in the State. We can find no reason to doubt the election of Hayes, and believe the full, fair returns will declare him the next president. Ax indication of the feeling iu finan cial circles as to the effect of the election of Tilden, much stronger than can be shown by any other evidence, is the fluctuation of government bonds as the reports of election seem to favor one side or the other. When it appeared that Tilden had been successful bonds dropped in value and the sales were dull. Since the probability has been steadily growing that Hayes is the successful man, bonds have gone up and renewed activity and confidence is felt in financial circles. So important a bearing has po litical result upon finances that our lea ding financiers have kept European cap - italists informed of every change in the situation, and tho greatest anxiety ob tains in Europe over the final result. That there should be any uneasiness proves that the apprehensions all arise from a possibility of Republican defeat, for there has been no feeling of doubt under Republican rule that the national obligations were to be relied up on, •while a change in the government leave the whole question in the most uncer - tain shape. The Next House.— The table giving a list of the Forty-fifth Congress will not be published until the districts now in dispute are settled. Ibis is the latest figuring New York Times onCon gress: “Our latest dispatches leave the complexion of the House of Represen tatives 147 Democrats to 143 Republi- Miri'H iu.cUuu TUC ull* ly elements of uncertainty in this en umeration are thefollowing: In Flor ida we claim two Republicans; in Louis - ana we concede two seats to the Dem ocrats and claim one Republican; there are tw T o seats returned as Democratic which will be contested by Republicans and one Republican seated whose elect ion will be contested by a Democrat. There is a strong probability that when the returns are complete tho assumed Democratic majority of four wiped out, and the complexion of the next House will depend on the result of the New Hampshire election in March.” Gov. Hayes has shown by his bearing daring the canvass and since the election that he is eminently worthy of the high office for which he has been named and to which there would t>e no question of his election if there had been an honest and free vote in all the states. He has been dignified, reserved and modest in the expression of his views on the can vass, and what he has said has been in stinct with noble principal and an exal ted idea of personal and political honor and integrity. In a recent conversation he is reported to have said: Any man lit to be President, or even a can didate of a great party for the office, would prefer to be counted out by fraud rather than )>c coutcd in by fraud of which there is a rea sonable suspicion. Imagine Sham Tilden uttering such a sentiment in this emergency, or acting in accordance with it ! Several, votes were cast in every town in this county for Minor, for one of the Republican electors instead of Downs. Mr. M i uer was the regular nominee, but being post-master and consequently not eligible to the position of an elector, Mr. Downs was put in his place, hence the mistake. Some of the town boards can vassed Miner’s votes for Downs. It is quite likely that if all the votes cast for Minor in the state wore hunted out, enough would bo found to defeat Downs and elect the democratic eleeto r. The above extract from a Democratic sheet shows upon grounds the Demo crats are willing to gain the Presidential contest. For the benefit of such we will state that sufficient returns have been received to prove conclusively that enough cannot bo counted out to elect the Democratic elector. Mr. Downs will have a majority of over 1200 over any competitor iu any event. Aim the official returns are in from the counties in this State, except Ash land, Brown, Buffalo, Oconto and Wau paca. The State will give about 6,300 majority for Hayes and Wheeler. The Downs-Minor blunder will reduce Downs’ majority as elector over liisDem ocratic competitor to about twelve hun dred majority. Peter Cooper will re ceive in the neighborhood of two thous and yo'es. A dispatch states that while the Franklin was at St. Thomas no commu nication was allowed with the shore. This was evidently done to prevent Tweed from stealing the island for his friend Tilden. LEGISLATUEE OP 1877.

Wo heartily endorse the following from the Janesville Gazette, believing that ic the person of Mr. Cossoday the Assembly will have an able conscientious speaker Now that election is over we wish to commend to the members elect of the legislature and to the press of the state, the name of Hon. J. B. Cassoday, of this city, as a candidate for speaker of the next assembly. Public sentiment as indicated in correspondence and through editorial suggestions in several of the more influential republican journals of the state, has already referred to Mr. Cassoday’s eminent qualifications for the position ; and has suggested the wisdom of such a selection. We can as sure the public that if Mr. Cassoday should be chosen speaker he will justify blwu.- Lxoatxl/O V-/£ HlO Ht—. c lie -*-- o thorough republican, an able lawyer, a man of judicial texture of mind, of rare practical judgment, in full sympathy with popular impulses and yet so clear aud just in his convictions as to bo safely entrusted with the administration of im portant affairs. His indefatigable in dustry and faithful and conscientous discharge of duties assigned him are a part of his nature ; so that whatever he undertakes is worked out step by step with a tenacity which never yields until he is the master of whatever he under takes. Mr. Cassoday does nut seek official positions ; if this or any other office should be conferred upon him, it will be upon merit and because tho mem bers of the party regard him, all things considered, as the best man; aud wheth er he should be chosen or not to any place for which the partiality of his friends may recommend him, he will work for the success of his political prin ciples in whatever position may be as signed him, and be satisfied that that is his proper field of effort. We are glad to know that there are a number of good men elected as members of the coming legislature ; each one of whom would fill the position of Speaker of the As sembly with honor to himself ; but we are very sure that there are none to whom the Republicans of the State could more safely trust the important duties of presiding officer of the popular branch of that body than to J. B. Cassoday, or who would bring to the discharge of those duties a more intimate knowledge of the laws of the State and of the varied material interests of the people. The Milwaukee ’Wisconsin of yester day contains the following romance: A wonderful romance has just come to the ear of society in this city. The story may be expected in full in all of the social colums of Western newspapers before long. It is alluded to here very briefly for the benefit of those who have not chanced to hoar it. In one of our orphan asylums there has dwelt for some years a prepossessing girl who is just 17 years of age. The death of her mother and the strange disappearance of her father when she was iu her!2th year left her friendless aud dependent iipon charity. The home of the family was in Granville, aud the girl had been a pupil of Mr. William Stapleton, who was at the time teaching school in that town. During the short period that Mr. Sta pleton was in the grocery business at Wauwatosa, prior to going into the Sen tinel office, he lost sight of his unfortu nate pupil, not to sea her again until they met nt the Orphan Asylum, where he was doing some light reporting. Nat urally a sympathy sprang up between the two,but the youthfnlness of the mai den prevented anything like a declam ation of love. Now to the beautiful end ing—and surely a story never ended more satisfactorily! A few days ago the long lost father of the young lady was heard from, in Kalamazoo, where by some lucky strike he had made his fortune. The girl is beautiful, sweet seventeen and an heiress, and she and the young man of the Sentinel are now betrothed. Every newspaper man in the country will congratulate the happy pair. The vandals who attempted to steal the remains of President Lincoln, re cently, have been arrested in Chicago. The law imposes a penalty of one year’s imprisonment and fine of §SOO, which is altogether to light in that case. They should be strung up. The National Grange was ia Conven tion iu Chicago last week. TEPEIBLE LOSS OP LIFE. Dispatches from Calcutta, under date of Nov. 20, give the following addition al information in regard to a terrible cy clone which passed over portions of In dia, and by which bully 120,000 lives were lost: Three large islands, namely, Hattiab, Sundeep, and Dakhan Shahabazhare, and numerous other smaller islands in cluded iu Backergunge, Nookholly and Chittagong, were entirely submerged by the storm-wave of Oct. 31, as was also the mainland for five or six miles. .These islands are all in or near the estuary of the river Megua. The largest, Dakhan Shahabazhare, was 200 square miles in extent. It had a population of about 240,000. Hattiah and Sundeep, togeth er, had about 100,000 population. Up to about 11 o’clock on the night of the Slat, there were no signs of danger, but before midnight a wave swept over the country to the depth, in many places, of twenty feet, surprising the people in their beds. Dense groves of cocoanut and palm trees around the villages ena bled many xo save themselves by dim ing among the branches. Some took refuge on the tops of their houses, but the water burst the houses asunder and swept them out to sea. Some were car ried thus across the channel, ten miles, to the Chittagong district, but the vast majority were never heard of again. The country is perfectly fiat, and almost every one perished who failed to reach tha trees. There is scarcely a household on the islands, and on the adjacent coast but lost many members. The cattle are all drowned, the boats are swept away, and the means of communication with the other districts is destroyed. There is much distress among the survivors, which the government is relieving. The Government Gazette says that wherever the storm-wave passed it is believed that not a third of the population survived. The islands have barely one-fourth of their former inhabitants. The stench from the putrefying bodies is insuffer able, and a general outbreak of the chol era is expected. A correspondent says that this fear is happily not realized, ex cept in Nookholly, where the disease has appeared. SOME OF THE EESHLTS. The State Journal figures up some of the results of the recent campaign as fol lows: The election demonstrated the vitality and vigor of the Republican party. About 43 Democratic members of Con gress give place to Republicans, while Democrats have gained but about one seventh of this number. This is a most remarkable change, and had it been against the Republicans instead of in their favor many funeral sermons would have been preached over the party. In addition to the gains in Congress eigh teen States in the North have gone Re publican. These results have been achieved against Tammany tactics and the lavish use of money by the wealthiest man and the most indefatigable worker who ever ran for President. He has labored with a desperation never before known and has been backed up by forces and in fluences in most of the South that left him at liberty to concentrate all his tre mendous enginery on a few doubtful States and thereby inspire his adherents throughout the Union. Republicans voters are quick to take offense at the mistakes in their own par ty, and the real or alleged faults of their candidates, while the democrats stand by their regular nominee. The expos ures that ought to destroy a candidate’s popularity, seem only to inflame par tisan zeal in his behalf. It is a very .nn lioaiiuj otaib of a-iitiLi wiun a nomina tion is used as a cloak to cover and hide a man’s faults, no matter how great they may be. The Republicans can congratulate themselves that they have achieved such substantial results in unseating Demo crats in the House and in holding con trol in nearly all the States where free schools flourish, newspapers are plenty and the people are law abiding. The Good Time to Come !—The de cline of government bonds even before it is certainly known that Tilden has been elected has a significant bearing upon the promise of good times held out as an inducement to the unthinking clas ses to vote the Democratic ticket. This decline affords a glimso of the business depression absolutely certain to be ex perienced' if Hayes has been defeated. A change in the administration which makes a complete revolution in the pol icy of the government probable must naturally have a disquieting effect upon all business interests, and while the fu ture course of the dominant party is un known the state of uncertainty can have but one effect—to unsettle fiuaucies, and prostrate commerce and manufac tures. Such must surly be the effect, and for at least six month there will be a state of hard times such as this country has not seen for twenty years. We do not say there might not be a reaction, but the interval would be terrible, and the suffering among the poor frightful to contemplate.— FondcluLai Common wealth The Ejection Goes to the House.— Burlington Hawk-Eye; “My sen,’’saida pious father out oh South Hill to his hopeful son, “you did not saw any wood for the kitchen stove yesterday as I told you to, you left the back gate open and let the cow get out, you cut off eighteen feet from the clothes-line to make a las so, you stoned Mr. Robison’s pet dog and lamed it, you put a hardshell turtle in the hired girl’s bed, you tied a strange dog to Mrs Jacobson’s doorbell, and hung your sister’s bustle out in thefront window. What am Ito do, what can I do to yon for such conduct ?” “Are all the counties heard from ?” asked the candidate. The father replied, sternly, “No trifling, sir; no, I.have yet several reports to receive fro m others of the neighbors.” “Then,” replied the boy, “you will not be justified in proceeding to extreme measures until the official count is in.” Shortly afterward the election was thrown into the house, and before half the votes were canvassed it was evident, from the peculiar intona tion of the applause, that the boy was badly beaten. The Chicago Post has the following concerning Goo. B. Smith, the second meanest copperhead in the State during the war, and the thieving Attorney Gen eral during Barstow’s reign ; When we note the presence in New Orleans of the famous Wisconsin Dem ocrat, George B. Smith, as a mathema tician to see that a fair count is had, it recalls the time when this politician counted in Barstow as Governor of Wis consin by fraudulent returns. Such men are only as fat on the fire. With them a fair count means a count for De mocracy —a sort of Indian coup. Total receipts of the Centennial Ex position are 84,308,735. Chinese Gov ernment has presented to the United States the general, ethnological and in dustrial collection in Government buil ding. , OUE WASHINGTON LETTEE. Washington, D. C., Nov. 18, 1876. The fatuity of the leaders of the na tional, or out of the regard to their pre judices I should say confederate, Demo racy, crops out through the covert threats of resistance to Mr. Hayes inau guration, in case he is declared elected by the authorities legally qualified to decide in the case of the three disputed States; and the evil counsel of their most extreme partizans appears to be received with undisguised favor in many sections, where the lessons of the past sixteen years have left but a slight im pression, if, indeed, they are not alto gether forgotten. If the present com plications are amicably adj usted it will not come about through the vise teach ings of the Democratic party press.— Many of their leading papers are filled with hints and insinuations of armed re sistance. President Grant is warned that he is liable to the same fatal acci dents that, iu other timeS, has left the throne of tyrants without an occupant; and others of the less pretentions organs of Democratic sentiment are running over with incendiary appeals to the most lawless and reckless elements of them party. It is, on the other hand, a mat ter of pride and congratulation with Re publicans that not one word has been spoken by any member of their organi zation whoso character or standing would insure him an audience, advising any thing but the most prompt acquiescence iu the result, whether favorable or other wise. From the tone of Southern Dem ocratic papers of the inflamable char acter alluded to, the approved method favors throwing the on us for starting the ball upon the Democracy of those States North and West which give Tilden their electoral vote. They reason that the South has elected their (the Northern Democrats) candidate and will look to the Northern wing of the party to inau gurate him. lam glad to say that I have no evidence that three marplots represent a majority of the Democratic party. On the contrary the New York Herald and other moderate Democratic papers are doing much to nutralize tbp poisonous efforts of ouch treasonable and wicked teachings ; but anyone hav ing access to Democratic papers from some of our large towns iu the North and to those coming from the late rebel lious States can readily verify all I have said. On the evening of the election and the succeeding Wednesday morning while iu the first flush of the supposed triumph, the insolent and seditious lan guage of representative Bourbons here, left no room to doubt their purposes at least. The reply of the visiting Repub licans in New Orleans to the invitation to meet their members of Mr. Hewitt’s committee to arrange for a fair count of the vote “actually cast” has probably enlightened the dark understanding of those gentlemen. They do not appear to enb rtain a hope of either of the States in doubt, if their efforts to confine the Bond of State Canvassers and members of the Returning Board to the simple duty of counting the votes as returned to them, and declaring the result, should miscarry. Although the excitement of last week has died away there is no abatement of the interest begotten by the election. When it was first noised ehont town that two Republican electors were ineligable each individual Democratic heart in the city was made temporarily light and glad; i but they were as quickly depressed 1 through the ingenuity of some satanio radical who appears to have invented a story to the effect that six of the Tilden electors, who were participants in the rebellion, could not legally act as their disabilities had never been removed. No decision has as yet been reached by the committee appointed to frame a per manent form of government for the District; but a majority, upon an infor mal exchange of views, appeared to favor a government by Commissioners. One member of the committee advocated re storing the right of suffrage, and anoth er thought that the General Government should pay 40 per cent of the expenses of the District. President Grant ap pears to be quite as popular to day as he was in 1865, after compelling the evacu ation of Richmond and capturing Lee’s entire army—the death blow to the con federacy ; and no man iu the whole country is regarded by Democrats as a safer man to let alone. His prompt and determined action when almost every one about him seemed to have lost their head, had inspired a renewed confidence in him and a feeling that so long, at least, as he is at the head of the Gov ernment, treason will remain so odious and its chances of success so hopeless that new enterprises in that line, if con templated, will be abandoned. But lit tle doubt is now entertained here that Russia means war, unless Turky fur nishes ample assurance oi protection to her citizen subjacts in the future. But it is not believed that the Sultan can furnish the required guarantees as Turk ish public sentiment will not permit; it is suspected that Russia is only too glad of an opportunity to carve up his sick neighbor. John Bull has given a snort of defiance and appears concentrating all his tremendous energies for a death grapple with a traditional foe. No one here appears willing to hazard their rep utation as a prophet, by definitely pie, dieting anything with regard to the ex tent or duration of the impending strug gle. The last days of our “Indian Sum mer” have been followed by several days of cold, drizzly weather wtiich, we are assure is neither good for man nor beast. Nevertheless the races at Brightwood are still in progress, drawing a fair atten dance. The city is fast filling up with people come to stay the winter. The coming session of congress is by every one expected to prove one of the most exciting and eventful of any in our his tory, The old, old struggle, coeval with man, and which lias convulsed this na tion many times during the past quarter of a century, is to bo renewed upon the floors of the House and Senate, with a bitterness that has not been equalled for ten years. All the signs betoken a storm of fearful violence. Maxwell. The editor of the New Orleans Times (Dem.) says of the Ohio delegation of Republicans now in that city- “The lair, candid, and manly bearing of the Ohio men, their evident design to have a fair deal, and nothing more or less, nas produced a most favorable effect.” These the representatives of Gov ernor Hayes.

Every one belonging to the laboring class knows the inconvenience of being obliged to la* or when the body, from debility, almost refuses to per form its dally ta-k. i never was a believer in dosing with medicines; but having heard the Vegetine spo ken of so highly, was determined to try i, and shall never regret that determination. Asa tonic (which every one needs at some time) it surpasses anything I ever heard of. It invigorates the whole system ; it is a great cleanser and purifier of the blood. Theie are many of my acquaintances who Lave taken it, and all unite in praise of its satisfactory effect. Especially among the aged class of people, it im parts to them the one thing most needful in old age —nights of cairn, sweet repose, thereby strengthen ing the mind as well as the body. One aged lady, who has been suffering through life from scrofula, and has become blind from its effects, having tried many remedies with no favorable result, was induced by friends to try the Vegetine. After taking a few bottles she obtained such great relief that she ex pressed a wish for her sight, that she might be able to look upon the man who sent her such a blessing. Yours respectfully, O. P. 11. Police Officer, Station 6. Boston, Mass., May, 9, 1871. HEARTFELT PRAYER St. Paul, August 22,18C4. 11. R. Stevens, Esq. : Dear Sir—l should bo wanting in gratitude if I failed 1o acknowledge what the Vegetine has done for mo. I was attacked about cloven months since with Bronchitis, which settled into Consumption. I had night sweats and fever chills; was distressed for breath, and frequently spit blood ; was all emaciated, very weak, and so low that my friends thought my case boneless.. . 1 was advised to make a trial of the Vegetine, which, under the providence of God, has cured me. That lie may bless the use of your medicine to oth ers, as he has to me, and that his divine grace may attend you, is the heartfelt prayer of your admiring, humble servant, BENJAMIN PETTINQILL. P. S.—Mine is but one among the many cures your medicine has effected in this place. B. P. MAKE IT PUBLIC. South Boston, February 9,1571. IT. R. Stevens, Esq.: Dear Sir—l have heard from very many sources of the great success of Vegetine in cases of Scrofula, Rheumatism, Kidney Complaint, Catarrh and other diseases of kindred nature. I make no hesitation in saying that I know Vegetine to be the most reliable remedy for Catarrh and General Debility. My wife bus been troubled with Catarrh for many years, and at times very badly. She has thoroughly tried every supposed remedy that we could hear of, and with all this she has for several years been grad ually growing worse, and the discharge from the head was excessive and very offensive. She was in this condition when she commenced to take Vegetine; I could see that she was improving on the second bottle. She continued taking the Veg ktine until she had used from twelve to fifteen bot tles. lam now happy in informing you and the public (if you choose to make it public) that she is entirely cured, and Vegetine accomplished the cure after nothing else would. Hence I tee! justified in saying that Vegetine is the reliable remedy, and would advise all suffering humanity to try it, for I believe it to be a good, honest, vegetable medicine, and I shall not hesitate to recommend it. I am, Ac., respectfully, L. C. CARDELL. Store 401 Broadway. Vboetine acts directly upon the causes of these complaints.

I have taken several bottles of the Vegetine for this complaint, and am happy to say It has entirely cured have! recommended the Vegetine to others, with the same good results.
