We will publish the official vote aa eoou aa received. The uewd gets belter and better. Wednesday morning it was under stood that the Democrats had carried every district in North Carolina. Now It appears that the Republicans have carried two district?, a gaiu of one Three cheers for the old North Btate. She will wheel into the Republican line yet. Indications : For the Middle At lantic States, colder and partly cloudy weather, occasional light rain or snow, winds most northwesterly, followed by a rising barometer. South Atlantic States, an increasing cloudiness, fre quent rain, warm southwesterly veering to colder northwest wlnde, followed by a rising barometer. Gulf States, warmer, partly cloudy weath er, occasional rain, variable winds, stationary or rising barometer, fol lowed to-morrow and north and west portions by lower temperature. Ten nessee and Ohio Valley, colder, partly cloudy weather, occasional rain, northwesterly winds and rising bar ometer, followed to-morrow in the Ohio Valley by a rising temperature. For the Lower Lake region, partly cloudy weather, occasional light raina or snow, northwesterly winds and fall ing baroaoeter, followed by a rising temperature and higher pressure. The Nashville American of laat Sunday contains the following: "It is rumored that all the colored land-holders in and near Celina re ceived notices from unknown parties within the last ten days to leave the State within a short time. Quite a number of them crossed the river at Celina the thirtieth ultimo, to hunt a new land of promise. They seemed to know who the parties were that had given the notice, but refuses to give the names through some fear of harm. Josh Hil), Reuben Hill, Tobias Stone, Will Dock and Bill Stone, all land-holders, and most of them heads of families, were among the number to croea the river Wednes day morning last. About three yeara ago the colored people above referred to built a church near Celica, and about the first of last July they estab lished a school in eaid church. Some time in July the church was burned down by unknown incendiaries. The colored people then established their school ia a little log cabin upon the side of the mountain, about the first of September. About tjie last of the same month the house was one night discovered to be on fire. Josh Hill and Jim Thomas colored, both were llred upon by unknown parties, and compelled to ilee for their lives. Attorney-General Snodgrass had a number of witnesses summoned before the grand jury at the last trrm of the Clay County Court, but failed to elicit anything more than general facts, and was not able to fix the responsibility on any one." This is a great outrage, and if our State Government can not protect their men, It U unworthy of respect. In the October and November elections the Republicans have carried Connecticut, Illinois. Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hamp shire, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ver mont and Wisconsin. These States have 197 electoral votes. It requires 185 to elect a President. The political skies are bright, and inflation Democracy is doomed. LET 'EE BOOM. Tuesday's Great Victory Still Grow in Volume. Triumph of True Republicanism All Along the Line, Sealing the Doom of Dishonest, In flation Democracy. New York Thoroughly Converted to Honest Principle?, Giving Us a Gain of at Least Two Congressmen. North Carolina Gives Us a Gain of One and Missouri Elects a Republican. Sweeping Republican Victories in Many States, With a Most Brilliant for 1880. Outlook Glory Enough for One Contest. Our telegraphic news this morn- ing 13 eager, but taken together with what we receive through our exchanges, enough is known to say that Tuesday's election resulted - gloriously for the Re publican cau3e. We have car ried New York on the State tick et, gained at least two Republi can Congressmen, and elected a Republican Legislature. Pennsylvania, Michigan, Il linois, Kansas, Minnesota and Wisconsin have all gone Repub lican by increased majorities. It is a victory of which the Repub licans may well feel proud, and one that will spread consterna tion in the ranks of Democracv. ELECTION NEWS. St. Louis, Nov. 7. A dispatch from St. Joe says Nicholas Ford, Greenback Republican, is elected in the Ninth district over David Rea, Democrat, the present incumbent, by about 1,200 majority. New York, Nov. 7. A dispatch from Mobile, Ala., announces that Ilerndon, Democratic hard money candidate, will have a majority of 1,000 in that district. Wilmington. N. C, Nov. 5. There seems to be no doubt that the Congressional delegation from this State will consist of six Democrats and two Republicans ; a Republican gain of one. Chyennb, Wt-, Nov. 7. Downy (Rep.), delegate to Congress, is elected by about 900 majority. YELLOW FEVER. Memphis, Ifov. 7. There have been no new cases of yellow fever to-day. -r - rr- J-imi nirnr immi.i ,- m ii'irr NEW YORK. New York, Nov. 7. Judge Hil ton rushed into police headquarters this morning greatly excited, and held a consultation with Inspector Dilkes. He stated that the body of A. T. Stewart was missing from its resting place in the family vault in St. Mary's Church yard, Stu gresant Place and Second Avenue. The vault, he said, had been broken open. The casket wa3 found in the vault, but the body was miss ing. Inspector Dilkes at once sent out the following general orders to all precints : The remains of A. T. Stewart were last night stolen from the family vault in St. Mary's church Yard. The casket was found broken and the body removed. The decom- position ot the remains is so offensive that they can not be con cealed. This is apparent from standing at the opening of the vault this morning, consequently it can j not he taken across the ferries without discovery. cause a diligent search to be made in your precinct, as the remains were evi dently stolen with the hope of re ward. GEORGIA. Atlanta, Nov. 7. Governor Colquitt's annual message w as read to-day, showing that tho finances of the State are in a very satisfac tory condition. The balance in the Treasury October 1st was $295, 789. No State, in his opinion, should have a stronger financial reputation. He recommends the establishment of an Agricultural College in the old Capital building at Milledgeville. He speaks fa vorably of the common school sys tem, and advises a sale or long lease of the Macon and Brunswick Railroad. He defends at some length the State's endorsement of first mortgage bonds of the North western Railroad Company. There is no allusion to Federal affairs. OHIO. Columbus, Nov. 7. Governor Bishop pardoned James D. McCoy, alias Richard Roe, the notorious bank burglar who was serving out a sentence of ten years. Roe is of a good family, and was recently left a large estate by the death of his lather. THE EAST. London, Nov. 7. The Manches ter Guardian s London correspond ent says : " Before the plenipo tentiaries left Berlin Lord Beacons field and Count Andrassy signed the treaty, providing if Russia should endeavor to remain on Tur kish territory after May, 1879, England and Austria will insist on her complete withdrawal. If Rus sia should urge that Turkey is una ble to protect Christians, owing to the disturbed state of affairs in Roamelia, England and Austria will furnish a garrison to relieve the Russians. The purport of this treaty is communicated to Russa." Leopold Rouke, German histori cal writer, is dangerously ill. What Alcohol will Do. It may seem strange, but it is nevertheless true, that alcohol reg ularly applied to a thrifty farmer's stomach, will remove boards from the fence, let the cattle into his crops, kill his fruit trees, mortgage his farm, and sow his fields with wild oats and thistles. It w ill break the glass out of his windows and fill them with rags ; it will take the polish from his manners, subdue hi3 reason, bring sorrow and disgrace upon his family, and topple him into a drunkard's grave. It will do this to the mechanic and the capitalist, as well as the farmer, for in its deadly hate to the human race, alco hol is no respecter of persons. How to Study. Keep the mind bright, and its powers fixed upon the subject of study. Take up the lesson with a firm resolve that it shall be earn estly and thoroughly sifted, its facts clearly seen and noted, its teachings discovered and put away in the mind, and that nothing shall be al-4 lowed to divert the attention from the beginning to the end of the time of study, whether that time be an hour or five minutes. Fight vigorously against a list less, inattentive way of reading over the words, without considering what they mean. Never allow the eye to see and the voice to pro nounce a sentence when the mind receive no idea whatsoever from the words or phrases which are read. If the mind can not be held closely lor a ioDjx time to any one ri in re still insist that tor the time n pro fesses to be looking inta the lesson the attention must be Hvited upon that one tluD, and very oth fro thing must be shut out. Retter study thus with an undivided attens tion, for ten minutes, than to spend three times ten minutes in pretend ing to studv, while the mind is allowed to ramble to the "ends ot the earth." . Good habits in study are more important when wo are searching after heavenly wisdom than when we are seeking for earthly knowledge. -- Personal, Rtv. Dr. Ja9. Tark, aud Messrs. Brownlce and Cooley, of this city, Rev. E. A. Ramsey, of Mary ville, and others went up yesterday evening to Morristowu to attend the Svnod of Nashville, Presbyterian Church, which met there last night. Mr. X- Bogart, of Philadelphia, came up yesterday evening and is at j the AUio House Mr. Torn F. Tutley, who has been in the city several weeks as a yellow fever refugee, left yesterday, returning t i Decatur, Alabama, where he is en f!gl lu busiueas. Mr. J. M. Anderson, came over yes ttr lay froru MontvaSe, aud left return ing to A'lanta, where he is engaged in business for Messr?. J. P. Beach & Co , millers, of this city. We failed to note the departure, on last Tuesday morning, of Mr. S. F. Goodykoontz and family, who left for VVaukon City, Iowa, to take up their future residence. Mr. Goodykoontz was an enterprising citizen and one whose loss will be felt in the commu nity, while his accomplished daugh ters, Misses Myra and Stella, by their affable and genial manners, endeared themselves to all with whom they came in contact. They were joined here by Miss Dora Goodykoontz, of New Market, who goes to spend a year with her brothers of that place. They have a host of friends here whose best wishes they carry with them to their new home. Daatftrontty HnriiMl. About half past saven o'clook yes terday evening Julia Donahoe, a young lady about 16 or 17 years of age, living on Park street, North Kncx ville, met with a serious accident by burning. She was in a room by her self where a coal fire was burning in the grate, and raising up to reach for something on (be mantle piece, her clothing caught fire and flamed up at a furious rate. She was panic-stricken, and not knowing what to do, ran screaming out through the yard to the street, her velocity just adding fuel to the flames until she was entirely enveloped. Her cries and the fire attacted the attention of her brother-in-law, Capt. Wm. Kerr, and his wife, who were jus' across at Donahoe's store, and they rushed to her relief, and by pres ence of mind in gathering some bed clothes and wrapping around her suc ceeded in smothering the (limes before they bad reached her head and face. She was badly burned about the body and limbs, however, and her clothing burned almost entirely off. Dr. Ludlow was summoned and rendered all the attention possible, and at midnight she was resting some what easy, but her condition was regnrded as very critical. She was the youngest sister of Johnnie Donahoe, of the firm of Shea & Don ahoe, who were burned out a few months since. We trust that with careful nursing and attention she may recover from the terrible accident. Mrs. Kerr had one hand badly burned In her heroic efforts to save the life of her si iter. Brlitol as a Vatrlmonil Mart. Oar neighboring town, the far famed Bristol-bn-the-lihe, is making for her self quite a reputation of late as a mat rimonial mart, especially for the rail road boys. Whenever oa of them wants to marry, which is of frequent occurrence, it seems that they make straightway for Bristol and have no trouble in making up a match. As it now stands only one baggage master on the line remains unmarried Dick Tearwood the last two having taken Bristol girls in the past two days, and it is said he fonnd her on the last visit. Bristol certainly has her complement of pretty, marriageable girls, eo that the rest of the boys need not be dis couarged and think there is no chance for them. The Republicans have carried enough States in the October and November eleotions to insure them a majority of twelve in the Electoral College in 1880. And yet the Knox vllle Tribune brings out that same old rooster that ha been whipped so often. H. W. CURTIS, Successor to (J, B. Smith & Co..

Kearns completed the job of raising the floors in the two court rooms of our court house. There was a swing of about 7 or 8 inches at the middle pillars, caused by the settling of the founda tion. The lower floor was brought to a level by jacking up the sleepers, and this settled the upper floor back to its uatural position, aud improved the appearance of things wonderfully. Esq. Kearns has also had three large iron bolts run through from bide to side, whici will make the walls perfectly stfe, and with a little plastering overhead and some finish ing touches inside the old affair will present a very creditable appearance yet. Some new windows will be put in aleO, and other necessary improve ments, the entire cost of which will not exceed $103 peihaps, and will put the court rooms iu very good shape.
