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

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

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

few failures have taken place this win
ter. 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

encouragement and the hopeful feeling
which pervades every clast of our cili-
zens.
Let ut further hope that tome

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

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.

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

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.
