In 18Gt, the Legislature stood 94 radical to 48 democratic, or a majority of 46 on joint ballot. This terrible prepon derance for wrong doing has been en tirely wiped out, and a democratic ma jority of six or eight substituted for it, so that in the next year's legislation we may look for something like fair ness, and a return to common decency. But thi i not the best of it. Thin majority insure the defeat of that old braggart seallawag Br.s Wade to the Senate of the United States, a place he has managed to fill for the last eighteen years, to the disgrace of the State, and the disgust of the right thinkingevery where. In the Congressional districts the de feat of the radicals is no less promi nent. In the first, Egglestgx, radical, is beaten by 400. In the second, Ci ret, independent republican, beats Smith, radical, editor of the Cincinnati Ga zette easily, with a heavy majority to battle against. In the third, CSciiesck's) the radicals were beaten by 500. In the fourth, (Lawrence's) the democrats have a small majority. In the fifth, (MrxGtx's) the democratic majority is largely increased. The sixth, represen ted by Clark, radical, returned a dem ocrat. The seventh, or Shellebarger district, vote very nearly tie a severe knock or the knuckles of Shellebarger. In the eightb,which lat year gave 11am- itross, radical, a majority of 100, the radical majority is about 100. The ninth, misrepresented by Bucklaxo, radical, save a democratic majority of 1500. The tenth, represented by the meanest and dirtiest of radicals, (A sh ut) a man with more dog metal in him, according to boiler, than even Wape the impeachment and town lot genius the man of suborned witnesses, short letters and telegraphic dispatches the impeachment fellow has gone demo eratic by a snail vote. Tho eleventh, (Wilson's, rad.) was also redeemed, with tieket-o'-Ieave to the incumbent. Tho democratic majority in tho twelfth was increased. The thirteeth, (Gen. Morgan, dam.) majority 3,000. Mor gan's majority much larger than previ ously. In the fourteenth, the strong hold of the abolition howlers, Walker, rad., is sustained with a comforting majority of about. 100! In the fifteenth, the democrats are victorious, knockirg Plat, radical, out of the ring. In the sixteenth, the home of Binoham, the democrats clear up that old traitor. In the Western Reserve, the land of cheese, the negroes, of course, elected their men ; but by reduced majorities. But even this is not the best of the victory in Ohio, though it would seem good enough. The issues distinctly presented to the people, conspicuous over all others, were negro tuffrage and the payment bf the public debt in green backs. These were presented in their best lights, pro and eon, by Vallan digiiam, Thurman, Pendleton and oth er on the democratic side, and Wade, Hats, Logan, and others on the disun ion side. Tbe majority against negro suffrage is somewhere between 40.6M im,9t9. And tbe election of a majori ty of democratic Congressmen, puts tbe seal ot condemnation on tbe two currency partt- bois withqoLl ir.Lrcst fr the rich, and greenback, depreciated vj to w per cent., jor the poor ! Ohio will vote for the democratic candidate for President in 1S6. It is intimated, says the St. Louis Times, that Judge Thurman will con test Hayes' right to the gubernatorial chair of Ohio, on tbe ground that in two or three counties more than enongh negro votes were cast to have changed tbe result. As the Senate has tbe dis position of the case, and is democratic by two majority, there is an opportu nity for justice seldom afforded. TENXSTLVANIA. In this State, there was no election for Governor. Judge Sharswood, dem ocrat, was eiected over Williams, rad ical, by a majority not yet ascertained (but large enough to give the State to tho democrats and repudiate negro suf frage, presented only in the represen tative men of each party) to the su preme court beneb. If, like Ohio, the people had been called to vote directly on the nigger issue, and the conversion of the gold bearing bonds, the majority no doubt would have been much larger, and tbe Congressional and Legislative tickets secured to the democracy. But the issue was not a straight one, but crooked as it was, the democracy gave negro mnYage its quietus. (Wonder if Thad. will pass a Congressional act en franchising the negro everywhere ?) Tho Legislature, is radical by a small majority, say, Senate, rad., 10,dem.,13 ; IIoue, rad., .VI, dem.,40. or in that neighborhood, which will loose to the democrats Berkelow in the U.

TBE EFFECTS ot these elections bave been to very greatly strengthen tbe President and the democratic party, and although the negro-purif ans still insist that they will impeach the President, somehow or other we'donbt it. But it may be pos sible, for "whom tbe gods mean to destroy, they first make mad." Tbe President will reconstruct his cabinet, it is said, and win pat each democrats into place as will honestly and fairly reflect bis views ; will have the tenure of office bill's constitutionality tested and also that of the several reconstruct tion acts, and as tbe villainous radicals who passed tbem admit they were pas sed outside of constitution, their abro gation will not be thought disloyal or treasonable.

We can do it. All that is wunted is the vim iho work. Another comforting asssurance grow ing out of the resnlt'of the elections is the almost certainty ot carrying view York and Nt-vy Jersey in November. This done, the kneli of radicalism is sounded. Gabriel's trump would not be loud enough to resurrect it,for they would not be judged for a thousand years after the righteous. In Virginia, tie traitors and negroes have split, and we have a line opportu nity of saving the good old democratic Old Dominion, ibe skies are bright. Up and be doing. The following are some of the most prominent of the radical puritans who made the speaking fight in Ohio and Pennsylvania, with their distinguishing characteristics: . "Asblej", the impeachment fellow, the confederate of Conover, a perjurer. Sheilebergcr, the negro leveler. Smith, editor V)f the Cincinnati Ga zette, of whom Vallandigham said, 'he was a liar, a coward, and scoundrel. Scbenck, the Vienna buti-her. Bingham, murderer of Mrs. Surratt. Chase, the charlatan judge. Kelly, tbe Mobile mobist who, thinks depreciated paper money quite good enough for the poor. Logan, the Illinois ignoramus. Chandler, of Mich., the drunkard. W ashburn, Grant's groom, that whis tles 10 his horse. Morton, the redoubtable Moxa, a fine drinker. Hays, the African mongrelist. Wade, who said every man who pro posed a conversion of bonds was a trai tor ! Old Wade, the blustering, blun dering speaker pro tern, of the senate, who said it would not be long before the whites and blacks should intermar ry and the white be honored by the ad; mixture of negro. But all of these could not win. We conclude to-day, tbe article of our correspondent S. O, on the state of tho dead. We have no particular feel ing in this question ; but rather lean to an adverse view of the question as pre sented bv S.. C, but hope his article will draw from- some of the friends of a conscious state after death, an ar cl, cool and calm, that informa tion may be derived from both the pictures. It is a happy thought that after death the spirit passes at once to God, but it is worth nothing it its truth is not stated, as we thimc it is, at last by strong inference, in the bible, As theologians and expositors ditler very widely upon this question, and as books have been written pro and con, nothing can be lost by its examination, especially as tbe arguments of S. C, are tersely and piously presented,at the same time that his positions are well taken, and clearly argued. Keports from Key West stato that the yellow fever is unabated at the Dry Tortugas the penal colony of the nev-er-to-be-sufliciently-Iamented, and it is said that all the United States surgeons had either died or were very sick, so that Dr. Mcdd, a prisoner, had to at tend all cases. There are two or three things we should like to know of Dr. Mcdd, and one of this penal settlement. 1. We should like to know where the authority for this penal colony conies from ? 2. We should like to know what particular offence JDr. Mcdd committed to cause Mr. Johnson to send and keep him a priconer there ? 3. We should much like to know if it is any part of liberty to thus deprive a man of his personal freedom, with no hope of re ward hereafter, merely for setting the broken leg of a wounded man ?

A court martial verdict of a rather unusual, and interesting character has just been rendered. It is-iu the case of Col.

Editors MiiSutiri Democrat.: As some additional evidence that the rebels are again secretly, as well as more openly in Maryland, marshalling their forces throughout tho country for a united and concerted effort to establish in power those who have thus far failed to destroy tho government, 1 give you the following true copy, taken by my self, ofa letter received at Linn Creek, on the evening of the 2d instant. The writer (Jackson) once lived in Camden county, was a rebel sympathizer, saw his error, desires no more war. It was nut written for the public, but Mr. Moulder, through a sense, of duty, per mitted histather-in-law, Thomas Selby, Probate Judge ail Clerk of Camden county to use it. lie permitted and requested me to copy it. It is as fol lows : Waverly, Sept. 24,18G7. Dear Friend : Yours of the 5th of this month has been duly received, I had a lergtliy conversation with General Shelby a lew days since. He gave me his views. As concerning the future he thought tho time was close at hand when 'we would have all our past troubles to contend with again, but it would be on a different scale to some extent. And better proof than nil, the General received a private let ter from General F. P. Blair, warning him to be in readiness, for that war is undoubtedly to bo and was near at hand. And I care not how soon my self ; if others can bear it, may be I can. 1 hope the people will have their eyes opeu a little more than they did in the other war. They may war as much as they please, I don't expect to take anj part in the affair. I will try to live and let others do as they may. William A. Jackson, To David Moulder, ) of Waverly, Mo. Linn Creek, Mo. ( " 1 forbear comment, as you will of course give to the public whatever may be proper. It would not, however, be difficult to draw a picture of Gener al F. P. Blair following the camp Jack son rebels in a charge upon the Union forces through whose valor the coun try was saved. It might also, in this connection, be well for you to direct the attention of the loyal people to the fact that quite a number of insurance agents, in the persons of ex-rebel offi cers, have been, and are, traversing the State, and that their chief employ ment may be to secretly organize the rebels for tho war above alluded to. And it might be well to ask if a num ber of Methodist ministers South, lately having come into the State, are not al so engaged in the same work. Certainly loyal men should take wan ing and prepare for any emergency, that, if tbe rebels and their friends again draw tho sword, it may not return to the scabbard until it shall have per formed its proper work. Let us not close our eyes to stubborn facts, lest, ero long, when too" late, it may be said of us : "Ye can discern the face of the sky, but e cannot discern the signs of the times. To avoid blood shed and rebel rule, let loyal men be prepared. $Tery truly and respectfully, lour obedient servant, J. W. McClcrq. It is barely possible that such a man as William A. Jackson resides at Wa verly, in this county. We do not know him, if he does. What particular object McCluro had in publishing the letter, we know not, nor is it material. It enunciates nothing. The intent, no doubt, was to embroil Gen. Suelbt in tbe political issues of the day, from which he has seduously stood aloof, and taken no part. Even admitting tbe identity of Mr. Jackson, (which we by no means deny,) the conversation with Gen. Shelby disclosed nothing, except that Gen. Suelbi is' of tbo opinion that we "shall have our first troubles to contend with again," but "on a some what different scale," and that he would "try to live and let others do as they may." There is no great bugbear in all this, so far as wo can 6ee. Gen. Shelby has as mnch right as any one else to speak of the future, to prognos ticate its events more than such fel lows as Wade, who says we are to have war, more than the radical villains in Congress who have been lor two years using their best endeavors to bring on another conflict more than the dirty, oath bound rascals who make up tbe "grand army of the republic," because he is quiet, and proposes to remain so, if he can. What is it, then, that has sent a shudder clear through this white livered McClcro, and his cowardf3' co adjutors of the Democrat? We answer, a guilty conscience a conscience that "Hath athonund reril tontni. Ami CTery tongue brracjs in a srveral tale, AO'l rerjr Ule condemns me for it villnn " But the lowest, meanest; most" cow ardly allusions in the above are' to in surance agents and 'a number of Meth odist ministers, south, lateby come into the State." McCllro knows that the secret. leagues of the "Grand Assina tion Rascals," and the other sniveling perjured concern called "A. D." mean ing Assination Devils, are organised for mischief, and, with the blopd of Head lee yet warm on his hafids, he dares to throw an imputation' oh those whose boots he could not get to black. "But look for min whn a cftwsrd wlnn; For l'ear and cruelly were ever twiua. " . Veca usC, "The coward nerer on himself relieve, But to an equal for assistance flicn. " To place Gen. Blair among the reb els is a joke that could only be con ceived by such fellows as McClurg or Grosvenor. It is rich. Nothing equals it in point of humor, unless it be Sir John Falstaff's troubles to get up courage enongh to do his own fighting ! No doubt of it,McCIurgand Grosvenor, and Fishback, and McKee, all vallorous knights of the stay-at-home-and-howl description, could each cry out-; "I feel mv inew slacken 'rl with the fricht, An.1 a cold aweat thrills down all o'er my limits. As if I were dissolving into water. And no wonder, when it is known that "quite a number of insurance agents, in the person of ex-rebel offi cers," and "a number of Methodist ministers, south," have been seen in the State !

The sum appropriated tor the pay of this claim by the act of Congress au thorizing the Commission to adjust it, is 86,715,089 65. This was the officially reported amount of the claim after deducting the direct tax, which was before Con gress to be provided for by the passage of the act. It will be seen that nearly the whole of it is allowed by the Com mission that the appropriation was sufficient to cover all thai is allowed. The 'finding' of the Commission has been subjected to a rigid examination by the accounting officers of the Treas ury at Washington, and has been found to be correc t iu nearly every particular. Furthermore, nearly the entire amount found by them to be due the State has been paid. Of the application that has been and is being made of the sums paid, mention will be made presently. how disposed or. An act to provide for the payment of the interest upon the State debt, ap proved March 12, 1867, directs the fol lowing application of the proceeds of a Alnim Tha i wW Ac t " As SP AI1A mil. tlJV 'lt4alli X II V?

Thcso directions of the law were modified by a decision of tbe Supreme Court, (Kellogg vs. Bishop, March T., 1867,) requiring a reservation also of a sufficient sum to pa all outstanding Union Military Bonds, and interest about one million six hundred thousand in amount. The disposition of the proceeds of the claim would then be : For pay of Military Bonds Kor purchase of I'" S. Honda For reimbursing Seminary Fuud. . . For meeting past dtte interest .Sl.GOO.eiO . . 1..VJU.O.KI l'l,000 . . S,27.'..sr.l Total (amount of claim) S6, 475,831 At least, it would be thus according to our views jf tbe subject and con struction of the law. But we under stand that i. is tbe opinion of the State Treasurer, in which he is sustained by the Attorney General, and by Judge Ilyland, of the Legislative Committee to settle with the auditor and treasurer, that the amount reserved for the Semi nary Fund is Jive hundred thousand dollars. One hundred thousand dollars was the amount belonging to the Semi nary Fund, which was invested in tbe stock of tbe old State Bank, and the amount of which the fund was deprived by the bank's sale. We do not think the legislature proposed to do more forthe fund than to replace that amount, in directing that of the proceeds of the indemnity 'laim "a deduction of five hundred thousand dollars for that fund, and for the pay of outstanding Union Military Bonds" should be made. It is true there is an aggravating want of precision as to what fraction of the de duction it was intended should be for the Seminary Fund. But it is reasona ble to suppose that it is not more than one hundred thousand dollars or a sum equal to tbe amount that bad been ta ken from it. It is very well known that under the act as it stood, inde pendent of tbe decision of the Supreme Court, thi would have been the sum set apart for it, and that the balance of the deduction authoriod,$400,000 only, of tbe indemnity proceeds, wonld have been applied to. tho pay of Military Bonds. But the opinion of the Su preme Court does not authorize the set ting apart for the Seminary Fund of a larger sum than was contemplated by the Legislature. It simply requires a reservation for the pay of outstanding Union Military Bonds, of a sum snffi cient to nav all of them from the first of the proceeds received, instead of only 8400,000 of them, when received finalry. But, accepting the "new entertained br tboTrnae urer and tbo Attorney Gen- era!, the appropriation of the itidemiii-! ty money would be : j For pny .f Militarr Bod!?

It is however still to the credit of the Fund Commissioners. The balance of the sum to their credit, 82,501,037, is now being paid out by the National Bank of Commerce in N. York, in pursuance of the direction of the Fund Commissioners, Messrs. Thompson and Bishop, issued by them Monday last, on the past due coupons of Missouri bonds. It will be sufficient to pa3" four and one half coupons on each bond. The following statement of the con dition of THE RAILROAD DEBT. will be of interest in this connection. The original amounts of bonds issued and guaranteed by the State, in aid of railroads, for which the State has been compelled to provide, are as follows: Forthe Pacific railroad... For the North Missouri Forthe Iron Mountain. For the Soiithwi-si I'acitic. For tlie Platte country. . . . For the Cairo A Fulton. . . . 7,000,000 . 4,-W.OpO . ;t, ill ,uoo . 4, " io.uou (O0.U00 Wl.OUO Total 620,701 ,!.- This total constitutes the original principal of the railroad debt for which the State has beeu required to make provision. It has been reduced, however, by pay ments into the treasury of these bonds for the bank stock and railroads sold, to the amount of 81,450,000. Tbe ac tual principal of the railroad debt is therefore only 819.251,000, bearing a semi-annual interest of 8577,530, and an aggregate of pat due interest of S6,030.U60. By the payments now be ing made on this sum of past due inter est, it will be reduced to 84,338,423, and it may bo sai'ely calculated that it will be still further reduced. We think we are warranted in estimating that tlie amount of past due coupons left unpaid, to bo funded, will not exceed four mil lions, when the principal of the railroad debt will stand at a'lout tweuty-ihrce and a quarter millions. Progress of Infidelity. - It appears that on Sunday lat a church was opened in Ho!okon, New Jersey, dedicated to atheism and infi delity, and amongst the startling an nouncements made by the chief speaker on the occasion was the following piece of blatant blasphemy: "This house shall be called the 'Mausoleum of Jeho vah.'" It is needle-s to' sny that the man who ventured upon the utterance of such an expression had not "the fear of God before his eyes," but c onsidering that a very large number of respectable and intelligent people honestly believe in sacred things,- and some are even more susceptible of insult offered to tbe God they worship, than the- would be ofa personal affront, common decency suggests that such ideas should be more modestly expressed. (A radical, of course !) The feelings of such people should be, to some extent, at least, re spected, who, in exchange for an hon est Christian faith of which they would deprive a man, they offer him not even the shadow ofa hope.

On lat Satur day evening a man named tVillian Sla ter was kijiedbetween Farely and Slab To n,1n thu county, by John Farley, under the following circumstances : Slater, who was under the influence of whisky, got into a quarrel with Far ley, a 3oung man about eighteen years old, and finally attacked him, throwing or knocking him down and beating him. Bystanders interfered and sepa rated tbe parties. Very soon Slater renewed the attack and drew a knife on Farley, who was retreating, when Far e seized a club and turned and struck Slater across tbe back of the neck, knocking him senseless. Slater lingered until the next morning when he died. On Tuesday young . arley j delivered himself up to tbe authorities and had an examination before Justice Mulkey, resulting in his acquittal and discharge on the grounds of self de fence.

Or, in other word-, 81,221,25G 83 of non interest bearing indebtedness was converted into bonds bearing six per cent, gold interest, payable semi-annu-a'ly a very peculiar way to " pav old debts." This is made apparent by the j looting up. in -sept., nic grana toiai of indebtedness was 82,492,763,305 05, and in October it was increased to 82, 495,277,446 76, or 82,491,01 71, so that the debt increases monthly instead of heing diminished, llus must continue until the interest bearing debt is taken up by legal tenders, or tlie nation is fur ther taxed, for if we run behind 82,494 0S1 71 monthly it must be met in some way. What is the object then of such tattle? Very evidently to mislead. N Freemasonry in Missouri. At a meeting of the Missouri Histo rical Society of St. Louis, held at the O'Fallon Polytechnic Institute, 011 Sat urdaw last, Capt. John I). Daggett, tbe oldest affiitted Free Mason in Mis-ou-rt, read an interest ing paper giving the hist ry of Freemasimary in this State. From it we learn that the first war rant of Constitution was granted in 1807-8, by the Grand lxdge of Pcnn-s3-lvania to Louisiana Lorig', No. It9. to be holden in Ste. Gencv.eve. Otl o Strader was its first Master, and l)r. Aaron Elliott and Joseph Ilertick wete its first Wardens. I 1809-10. a char ter was granted by the Grand Lodge of Pent.sylvania, to certain bretheru in the town of St. Louis, to Vipen St. Ifui Lodge, N. 111. This Lodge finally ceased to exist, and the next Lodge organized in that town was chartered by the Grand Lodge of Ten nessee. Subsequently other lodges were chartered in different towns in tbe territory. In Febnary, 1821, in pursuance of an invitation sent out by Missomi Lodge No. 12, of St. Louis, a convocation if Masons met in that city in April, 121, for the purpose of organizing the Grand Lodge of Missouri. Kdwar-I Bates acied as Master. A Constitution was adopt ed, and -n April 24th, 1821, the Grand Lodge proceeded to the election of the following officers : Bro. Thoma F. niblick, M. W. G. M.; Bro. James Kennerlv, S. G. W ; Br.. Wm. Bates, J. G. W. : Bro. Archibald Gamble, G. Treas. ; William Rensbaw, G. Sec. ; Tbe Gram! Lodge, being thus orga nized, adjourned to Friday, 4th of May next, at which time it met in St. Louis, and its officers were duly installed. From 1821 to 18C7, tlie Grand Lodge of Missouri iias bad twenty-five Grand Masters, among whora we find tbe names of Hamilton R. Gamble, Ed. Bates, and A. B. Chambers. Rev. John D. Vincil of Hatinibi l Lodge. No. 188. is the present Grand Master. Tlie Lodges in Missouri tinml-er 240, with a membership of about 12,500. Address of Pa.
