MBMPHIHt TaHil HMUl. lmuwy 6. 17 nn-rrnnir rnS 1874 The election beiu over, the people of Memphis can now look to the future once more with cnlmneng snu piiuumi- phy. Mr. Loague was elected as a Ke puhlicau. We need not anJ will not tl.R BUDtiortera of his opponent with their bnd mnnagement and want of co-operaticn, for we pointed out tneir blunders, however innocently made, at the ineeption of the campaign, and warned them of disaster, but all in vain. They sowed their mistakes with a lavish hand, and reaped an early harvest of defeat There is not really a Bepubli. can majority in the city, and there was no good reason why Memphis should pass under Republican rule. Whether it will remain so any great length of time of course depends chiefly upon Mr. Loatfue'. discretion and fair, non partisan administration. What he will do, or not do, we have no means of ascertaining at present, but we shall judge him solely by his oflicitJ acts. He will be supported by a General Council of perhaps more than average ability men who are lully identified with the vital interests of Memphis, and able to grapple with practical questions. They will share with the Mayor an uncommon degree of responsibility, for Memphis is :., nnw entering a new era. rur ... J ' . n 1. .1 D. twelve months one uiaier -- i 'Z another, but each time the of fortitude, often amountiug to sublime courage, have Wn d veloned In our peoplefaud after U 1 als and tribulation,, and coming out almost unscathed, all are imbued with oh unscai nea, u rr """" . . , .j j- . sympathy lor eacn oiaer, nuu icuj sfand shoulder to shoulder in the great common purposes of the community, As one of the fruits of this feeling, the Cotton Exchange has been organized uDon a basis that bids fair to give it per- manency, aim vu .uBu.c ----- .- i , ;nnIHA in ai i hit nonpi in to the community, and to lift our cotton to tue commuiiuj, au w .... market up to a position and rank never Wore attained. Thus far the cotton receipts have been unusually large. Nearly a quarter of a million bales have been received already, and good prices are given. The planters understand the animus of those who have assailed the Memphis market, and continue to send forward their cotton and to make large orders for goods. Trade is lively in al most every department, and is cou Jucted on a better basis tha'i usual that is it approaches nearer ths cash sys tem than ever before. There is reason to hope that our merchant will sell only for cash, or on very short time to good, reliable customers. If they will adopt this plan, which seems to be almost a necessity, the planters will put in more corn, and thus become almost independ ent of distant markets for breadstuff and feed for stock. If leas cotton is raised it will be in greater demund and will bring higher prices; besides all that, a bushel of corn raised at home is worth more than three brought a distance. The labor system is undoubtedly im proving, and from year to year as the landed planters aud the colored people come to a better mutual understanding, more clear money is made by all and a richer trade flows to Memphis for seve ral hundred miles around. Memphis is grewiug even now, and holds np better in proportion to population and capital than Chicago, St. Louis or Cincinnati. People will complain of hard times, and n thev do all over the country, but from i . r i. : - BAA.nB rt V.o Wllttl wr eau see jicmpiiia occmb w better off tbau many other places.

Collections are reasonably good, and while some of the laboring classes are out of employment, no wide-spread suffering or want exists. Some funds are on bands to supply the extremely needy, and it is likely that the poer of this city will be as well provided for through the wiuter as elsewhere. With an economical ad miniuralion of the city government, strict collection of taxes and judicious expenditures, such as may safely be ex necled. and Droier economy in the expenses of living, and charity toward the needy on the part of those who have a competency or more, we see no reason wlv Memphis may not pass through the winter without experiencing further stringency i her affairs,nd for the remainder of the year enjoy unexampled nroaneritr. There it gr'at cause for encouragement and the hopeful feeling which pervades every clast of our cili- zens. Let ut further hope that tome ill be taken toward the erection step! i of a enstom house, a court house, and iublic improvements, which would (tiv employment to many working peo ple, put money in circulation and give more life aud vim to the enlire popula tion.

When will we bare lufl ID II"" I'UUUII ne in Memphis? THI LATI CITT KLECTIOH. We agree with the Avalanche in ex pressing tho opinion that Major Busby mado a very strong rauo for Mayor. He happened to bo the victim of circum stances, which he failed to control, but that is not his fault. Besides commanding the respect ef all classes, he has a genial mauner about him, and a warm heart, which will always mane uui. i.;.U (nr him in anv nosition. In the .,... I worked with a Zealand ener ev that seemed almost irresistible, and we believe that any other man nrougBi. p exactly the same way would have fallen short of his vote by nearly a thousand. He carried, it is supposed, about three hundred colored votes out of perhaps ...,..f...r hn..rirJ Dolled. These votes he took from the most compact body of voters the world ever saw by dint oi mi personal efforts, and had not Republi can leaders made a powerful effort in th. last days of the canvass, he would have carried at least one-third of the colored vote and thus been elected by a consid erable majority. As it was, he carried r..ii hir t in German aua a smau jjrr .ninlm of Irish votes. A. majority of the "Little Tammany" party voted for Mr. Loagiie, and it must be conceaea that no -email number ol uusmess nieu i;toU voted for him. Major Busby had the active support of three newspa nn. nf which at least has hereto fore' exercised a powerful influence in local and State politics, out usuanj when working in concert with a parly organization. Of course the papers f Brent service to Major Busby, and kept up the courage and eulisted the efforts of bis friends to the last. Some thiugs published may not have been to his advantage, yet in the aggre gate the three presses, which each in its own peculiar way worked for him, con tributed largely to secure his handsome vote. Yet if Major Busby had been en- irely untrammelled we believe he could have been elected. Over suuu oi tne regiotered voters remained away irom the polls. A good deal naa oeea said about fraudulent voting and irregu lar papers. What influence this may have had in the three thousand who de clined to deposit their votes can only be . toiler nf coniecture. A few hundred papers may have been improperly ob ir- - , Lined, but certainly could not have been used under such a Btrict system oi challenging aa uuuuucu a. uiwo. -' -r. place,. But taking it. for granted that . al .l mnra nf nilP Plt,lZrn8 r n ran iiiuuamiu wui" w could have properly voted, we see no r;f - . . pu :.;. nr (hum were for Major Busby, hypo ii,v, and it seems just bare y possible that, had they all voted I.Mr. League . major- ily would have been a "nd"ds larger.

Memphis has received to Jate 2157,282 bales of cotton this seasou, against 197, 5C4 one year ago, 208,4;0 two years ago, 256,220 three years ago, notwithstanding St. Louis is making such extraordinary efforts to carry off the cotton trade of this vicinity. NoMERors Granges have been organ ized receutly in East Tennessee. The candidates for State offices to be filled next summer would do well to practice farming with a hoe in the back yard about five minutes every morning before breakfast. It is only ten months until the gen eral State election for Governor, Con gressmen and the Legislature. Isn't it time to bring out the geography? The custom of making New Year's calls was observed in New York this year with more than 09ual spirit and energy. The papers are certainly making out a bad case against Williams, but for that reason he will probably be confirmed. Andrew Johxhox has returned from Nashville to Greenville. He it not in as good health as usual. LATEST TELEGRAMS.

The Casino E.ipanal was ju bilant. The volunteers favor a mon archy. The royal Spanish coat of arms was again placed on the palace of the Captain General. Michael Brophy, 371 Forrest avenue, quarreled and for.ght with Michael Fitz gibbons, last oiht. in Cornelius 0 Neil's liquor saloon, .1.,!) avenue A. Fittgib bons drew a knife and stabbed Brophy, inflicting two wounds hich will likely prove fatal. Fitzgibhons was arrested. Michael Jierney. aged twenty on years, an ex-fireman, of Morrisiana, was arrested there yesterday, charged with killing Edward Donokue, another fire man, Tterday morning. By the breaking np of a Canal street den of burglar yesterday eight well known criminals were arrested, includ ing Das Kelley, of Nathan murder notoriety, an escaped convict from Auburn prison; Patsy Conway a river pirate who shot and killed tie mate of a schooner in East river tome time ago; Larry Griffin, another pirate connected with the same murder, and Big John Garvey, a most notorious burglar. Al together, the haul is a rich a one as the police have made in a long lime. The Timet' snecial from Kt Whi says the Alaska arrived there yesterday from Gibraltar. Admiral Case bat or dered all vessels to be ready to tail at any moment. Monarchial emblems have been restored !! over Havana since the receipt of the news of Castel lar't overthrow. There are rumors of collitious between the factions o that ! city. The story of the flight of Elbert A Woodward, one of the criminals con nected with the New York ring, and the details of his wanderings abroad to eludo arrest, are published to day. On first learning that ha was in danger of arrobl he left Norwalk for. Canada, stopped a mouth in Quebec, then went to Montreal. All this time he adopted no disguise whatever. Next he turned np at New Liverpool, on the St. Lawrence river, Detectives were, however, on hit track. All letters to his friends or intimates were opened, aud the telegraph was care fully watched. After a long stay at New Liverpool, Woodward secretly re turned to Boston, where he shipped for Havana as a sailor, under the name of Spencer, on the brig Houston. A storm rising, they were inclined to stay in port till it blew over, but on Woodward's urgent demand, they put to sea. The gale increased, and the brig waa nearly wrecked, but was finally brought back safe to Boston by a tug. On reaching Havana he obtained a passport under the name of Spebcer. He began to live luxuriously, and enjoy himself. He next visited Vera Cruz, and crossed the isthmus for San Francisco. There he was recognized, and telegram sent to New York. While there he saw Tweed, whose overlaud journey was no doubt planned with the view of meeting Woodward and discussing ring atlairs, He then went to New Orleans, Feman dina, Baltimore, and finally left for Europe and made a tour of Britain, meeting Connolley in Dublin. He then went to Paris, Germany, Switzerland and Spain, and settled for some time in Barcelona. While at the latter place an agent of the New Y'ork authorities had several interviews with him, and terms were proposed grantiug him im munity if he would turn State's evideuce. There is every reason to believe that the terms have been accepted. He is said to have returned to the United Slates, and to be within one hour's journey of New York. The strike of the engineers on the Pennsylvania roads teems to be aban doned. The men accused G. C. K. Wil son, of Cleveland, Chief of the Brother hood, of selling them to the enemy. Yesterday offers of aid were received by the Pennsylvania employes from the engineers on the various lines centering in Jersey City. It was rumored in Wall street yesterday that a powerful clique had been formed in the Pacific Mail to bear the slock one or two per cent., so as to pick it up at low prices, advance it and strengthen the entire market. This was the only ttock which held back yesterday from geueral adtancement. Besides the ad vance in the stock market yesterday there were several other matters of a gratifying character, . the most promi nent being the resumption of tlenry Clews Sl Co. A special to the Tribune from Mans field, Ohio, says that R. H. Rowland, the treasurer of Richland couuly, is a defaulter te the extent of $110,000. Peter Habel, aged twenty-two years, the letter-box thief who was captured early yesterday for opening letter boxes and stealing the contents, on Third ave nue, has confessed to stealing over one hundred letters from the Chicago boxes, a large number from St Louis and fifty from Buffalo. He has been operating in Chicago and St. Louis two years past. He was formerly a letter carrier in Chicago. The Virginns sufferers at the head quarters of the Cuban junta yesterday were, it is reported, informed that, the Junta would cease to provide for them at the close of this week. The Ameri can portion have been cared for and sent to their homes. Nine Jamai cans and three Englishmen have been cared for by the British consul here, and will be sent home at the tarliest oppor tunity. The remainder of the survivors, however, have hen mainly dependent on the Juuta, They are miserably off for underclothing and boots, and ill prepared for winter. They have been boarded by the Junta at the French res taurant on Green street at four dollar! a week. The Time this morning says the statement that they have been enter tained at Trnjiloes it incorrect. They received little or no assistance from Cuban resident! here, and regret they did not remain on the Juniata, instead of coming " New York. The Junta yesterday informed them the funds for their support were exhausted. The New York Reader it the title of anew illustrated weekly, which begins its career with the year lfeT I. The price of the paper it four centt a copy, or two dollars a year, and, judging from the excellent appearance of the first num ber, both in illustration) and typography, it it oue of the oheapest, if not the cheapest ttory and sketch paper that hat yet sought npblic favor. It is folded small, containing sixteen pages of later sting reading, and no advertisements. The first number begins a serial story entitled " Fate," which opens well, and promises to be full of interest. A very floe engraving Is also presented with this number, which is certainly handsome euough to justify the claim of the pub lishers, "That it it the handsomest en graving aver given away with any simi lar publication." The New York Reader it published at 05 Liberty rtreet. New York. Orders for job wark tolicited by J. F. Fischer. 92 Beal street. 1 U flASOS! HAJiOS!
