Some men obtain a national repu
tation by acts of chicanery. Such is
the case with R. R. Butler, the pres
ent Representative from the First
Congressional District of Tennessee,
lie violated all the manhood he ever
had if he ever possessed any when
he tleliberately sold a cadetship to a
Connecticut man. This, with the sub
sequent action of Congress, gave him
reputation for venality which can
never be effaced, and which, to a
great extent, has fixed a stigma upon
the people who afterward reelected

THE GENERAL RESULT.
Nashville Republican Banner, 4th.
One of The most memorable election
days known in the whole history of
tins' free-thinking and freedomdoving
nation is marked by the date of yes
terday, November the third, and the
result has fairly surpassed the ex
pectations of the most sanguine on
the one hand, while it has dashed
the hopes on the other hand, of one
of the most self-opinionated and
bloated parties that ever infested this
progressive and determined counjtry
Let the reader but run his eye for
a moment over our foil reports from
all quarters of the land, and he will
see that the game Conservative eagle
has plucked many a precious feather
from the plumage of the Radical vul
ture, and has made himself the com
plete master of the situation for the
Here we have it: In Louisiana
the Conservatives gain five Congress
men ; in M assachusetts they gain at
least four ; in Michigan three ; in New
York seven or eight ; in Illinois, up
to this writing, three. In Alabama,
certainly two gains are scored over
the State at large, and probably four
in all. In Wisconsin there are gains.
f Nevv- York has ousted old Shoot-him-
on-the spot Pix, andplaced Mr. Sam
uel J. Tilden in the Gubernatorial
chair, also showing a change of about
six in favor of the Democrats in Con
gress, r, .
Then, think of it and indulge in a
pious genuflexion ! Ben Butler is
served with a pronounced writ of
ousteV. Dawes' old district shows
Conservatism in the vanguard ; Po
land is kicked out of the National
presence, and well, the hqws Is sim
ply almost as much as could bo- ask
ed, and more than ccnld be hoped for.
There cannot be the slightest doubt,
at least "from present indications.but
that the next House will show a Dem
ocratic majority, and the only ques
tion that arises is as to what that ma
jority will be. Alas, there is another
session of the present Congress, just
as there is a continuation of Kellogg's
dynasty in Louisiana, and two years
yet for Grant at Washington ! They
are told very plainly, however, what
there is in store for them.
Verily, to quote the agonizing words
of Ben Butler, the "outrage" busi
ness has " played out," and the wil
ful children who tried that gamo
must put up their toys and cease
their noise. Wc know the whipping
hurts but there's good in it.
Of pourse we must make some al
lowance for the mistakes, in sum
ming up hastily on the first night.
Still, there can be no doubt but that
the Democratic gains have been im
mense, and the country shows a
strong and significant predilection
for a new order of tilings.
There is not a State but shows a
greater or less gain for Conservat
ism and Democracy. It really 'looks
like Massachusetts has arisen from
a twenty years' endurance of Repub
lican rule", and ' joined the ontparrt

Proclamation by the President.
Washtngton, Oct. 29. The Pres
dent has issued the following procla
By the President of the United States
of America :
We are reminded by the changing
season that it ia time to pause in our
daily vocations and olfer thanks to.
Almighty God for the mercies and
abundance of the year which is draw
ing to a close. The blessings of free
government continue to be vouchsaf
ed to us, the earth has responded to
the labor of the husbandman, the land
has been free from pestilence, and
peace 'has been maintained with
other powers. It is fitting that at
stated periods we should cease from
the turmoil of our daily lives, and
unite in the cultivation of" kindly feel
ings toward .each other.
Now, therefore, recognizing these
considerations. L Ulysses S. Grant,
President of the United States, do
recommend to. all. citizens to assem
ble in their respective plaees of wor
ship en Thursday, the 26th day of
rsovemoer next, and express their
thanks for the mercy and favors of
Almighty God. and laying aside all
political contentious and all secular
occupations to observe such a day as
a day of thanksgiving and prayer.
In witness whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the seal
of the United States to be -affixed.
Done at the city of Washington,
this 27th day of October, 1874,. and

SAVED FROM THE SEA.
Exciting Adventure of a Young
That the sea should stive up its
dead seems hardly a greater miracle
than that in some cases it should
give up its alive. Stories of escape
from angry waves upon desolate
coasts have filled chapter after chap
ter of works of fiction, and the pow
er and immensity of the ocean have
made it the chosen symbol of the
cruelty and relentlessness of fate.
One would scarcely expect that af
ter the exhaustion of the imagina
tion of writers like Captain Maryatt
and Victor Hugo that it was reserv
ed for plain matter of fact to unrav
el the invention of the novelist ; and
yet there is at present stopping at
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, in this city,
a young man whose adventures and
escapes pass to the very verge of
the marvelous. Like so many other
instances of human peril, Own set

that ever entered a Chinese port was ,
the Seabird, when in 1854 the gates
of the Far Fast were first opened to
Western commerce. She was com
manded by an Ohioan named P. H.
De Vol. Originally of French de
scent, he was himself thoroughly an
American in physique, nervous en
ergy, love of adventure, and self re
liance in the moment of danger. In
statue he was six and a half feet.
He had left in his home in what was
then the far West, a young wife and
a baby boy about one year old. His
own exploits in the Orient added
not a little to the credit of his coun-
Ltrymen in that part of the globe. In
asmuch as they relate only indirect
ly to the matter in hand, the3' should
be rapidly sketched. Attracting the
attention of the King of Slam he
was placed in command of an expe
dition, his son relates, against the
Japanese pirates who infested the
coast, and in reward for several de
cisive victories he was made the re
cipient of distinguished marks of tlje
rOyal favor, among them beintr the
gift of a white elephant. Not lorrg1

School at Annapolis. He graduated
with honor, and last August, after a
brief vacation, he was ordered to re
port for duty r.t Queenstown. Upon
his arrival there he was ordered to
report at Nice, where the American
squadron in European waters was
then lying. At Nice he was ordered
on board the frigate Omaha, which

About the 20th of September, while
less than two days sail from South-
amptown, a violent storm arose, and
during its continuance, he was or
dered to convey an order to the of
ficer stationed on the bridge. As
he was going forward a huge sea
oame over the side, and the frigate,
with its monstrous bnrden, lorched
heavily to leeward. The taflrail was
low, and being between masts, the
young midshipman was hurled with
the wash over the side. The officer
on the bridge saw him and done all
he could to save him. He seized a
large cork life-buoy and hurled it
with all his strength toward the
