TVo lcaru of a tcrrlblo cocurrcnco that took placo at tho house of Wil liam Dobbs, living about four and a half miles north-east cf Savannah, on Friday evening last, about sun down. Mr. and Mrs. Dobbs wero both out of the house at tho time, the former fcedlug and tho latter milking, leaving their infant child lu the cradlo, beforo the fire-place. On returning to tho house they wero hor rified to find tho cradlo ou lire, and thepoorllttle child so terribly burned it died In a fow hours. The origin of tho accident is unknown with ccr- taluty. Somo think a coal of tiro must have popped into tho cradle; another theory is. that, as It was playing with a calico string, this may havo caught fire, aui been pulled in to tho cradlo. It was burled last Sunday at tho C-jffman burial ground Mr. Dobbs has a great many relatives and friends throughout tho county, who deeply sympathize with him.

ST. JOSICPII. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. WHO MADE IT AND WHO HAVE PROFITED BY IT. Hayes and Whoolor Fairly and Le gally uncctca. St. Josnpii, Mo., Nov. 17, 1676. EniTon St. Joskpii Hkiiai.u: Tho claim that Mr. T l.len ought lobe Inaugurated becauso he has a popular niajoi ily of a quarter of a million votes U absurd, viewed in thn light of history. It is persistently put forth by tho Demo cratic press, and I havo conversed with Republicans who incline to concede Ilia' It has some bearing upon tho question which was settled ou the 7lh instant. At tho formation of our Government there was a class ol Statesmen continu ally eliiniuiinir for the rights of tho States. As a concession to those Dem ocrats, the Klcctorul College, devised tiy tlicin, was adopted, it look the election ol President out of the hands of the people, whero tho liberal lathers of tho rcnuhllc would havo left it. and placed It In the control of tho States. I lie device was purely Democratic In its oi isin.and till to this year, the Democrats have always profited by it, aud gained inuircniis iiirougu it. In 1811 James K. Polk was elected President by the Electoral College ; but the people, cast a majority of their bal lots for Henry Clay. Polk's election was decided by a singlo State. Had the AbolitiiuiUts of- New York voted for tho Mill Boy ot the slashes ho would have boen President, and tho whole cur rent of our national history, as well as national thought, would have been ar rested and forced Into other and better channuls, Four years later the election of Gen. Taylor turned upon a single State. The detection ol tuo van llureultes in New York dofented Lewis Cass. In 1856 Buchanan was oleeted President by tho College, although the people rolled up a maioritv of 377.629 votes HL'ainst him. That year, also, a single State, Pennsyl vania, ucciueu tne contest, in lSCl), tho Southern Democrats ran Brecken ridsre with no other obioct in view tnan tho defeat of Douglas through the ma chinery of tho College and they suc ceeded in electing Lincoln and inaugu rating war, aimoagh an adverse ma jority of over nine hundred thousand votes t tared the Illinois Rail Splitter In the face on tho canvass of the popular vote This shows that tho Democrats have. so far, carried their ends and aims by means ot an Electoral College which every Democratic newspaper is now cursing. I dc not bollovo la this sys tem ot electing a President. It is not republican, it Is cumbersomo and is lia ble to create a national outbreak. Ben ton opposed it, as havo all progressive statesmen of the latter halt of the nine teenth century. But it is the law or tho land aud every clcclion must be decided by tho ballot under our lorms of law, or resort must bo had to tha sword. There nro thoso who onnoso tho in auguration of a President who secures a majority of but one in tho college. If our lorra or government is good for anything, If this Is a rcpubllo founded upon law and tho consent ot the gov erned legally expressed, that majority ofonoisjustns good, Just as binding upon all, and just as sacred as a majori ty of one hundred would bo. Iu tho socond Presidential contest, decided In 1797, Thomas Jeflerson was beaten 3 vote? by John Adams, tho latter re ceiving suventy-ono votes to Jefferson's 68. In tho third contest for I reckon Washington's eight years as the first Aaron Burr tied Jclforson, each receiv ing 73 votes, and the House, finally, was called upon to untie the knot. Tho ballotings ot the Collcgo at that tlmo prouiiccu so great an excitement as to threaten the overthrow ot our initltu. tlons. In 1825 the College was com posed of the electors of 21 States. Jack son received 99 votes,Adams 81, Craw ford who was the regular nominee ot the Democracy, 41. and Ilonry Clay, then a Democrat. 37. The Ilnuan W- ted John Qulnoy Adams, but its action f;ave tho Domocracy a lease of power astlng from 1823to 1811. In 1837, Martin Van Buren received but 23 majority In tho College and was only elected by tho action of a single State. So, tho political history tit tho nation teaches us that wo have bad sev eral minority Presidents, several havo only sipieezed into tho Whtto House with clnso pushing, and tho Democrats havo ruled tha country several terms moro than they could but for tho Eleo toral College, Tho last and great objection to the election of Governor Hayes is based on tho votes or South Carolina, Florida and Iulsiana. To begin with, 1 bo Hove thoso States will bo returned for Hayes and ho will havo a legal majori ty of one vote in the Electoral Collcgo. Threats wero openly made and pub lished before the election that the vote of South Carolina nnd Louisiana should not bo counted for Hayes, A fiery In dividual, Mr. Faulkner, or Virginia, publishes notico to a waiting world that no will never consent to having tho voto ol those two States counted lor Hayes. Tlio morning niter the election, beforo a rfnglr precinct had been heard from In ckher Slate, every Deinocrutio newspaper claimed Florida, South Car olina and Louisiana. Every issut ol these journals has repeated this claim, aud reports are telegraphed that promi nent Republicans coneedo that Tildun has carried one or more of those Stales. That this is part of a thoroughly organ ized plan, concocted by Tildcn beloro the election Is now palpable to all. No Republican of any prominence lias yet expressed the shadow ot a belie! that those States have voted for Tildcu. Ev ery intelligent man. knows that South Carolina, which two years ago gave a Republican majority of 11,68'J is a thor oughly republican State to.day, Flori da gave a Republican majority of 1,053 two years ago, and Is to-day Republican to the core. The last vote in Louisiana elected Governor Kellogg by 18,861 majority, which a Congressional Com mittee ami a majority ot the Conserva tives of Louisiana decided, alter Inves tigation, not to Interfere with. Louiihn t is til ceitalnly Republican as Vermont. Democrats uro down tliero from other Stales anxious to in terfere with tho count. The Democrat ic members of the Legislature of Louis iana have, since Kellogs's election, adopted an agreement "not to disturb the present State Government and to accord the Governor all necessary and legitiinato support in maintaining the laws." One ol these laws is to protect the men who canvass tho votes in re jecting the votes of such precincts as were sulijectto fraud, Intimidation or violence. Our St. Joseph Democratic papers, one edited by a minister of tliu gospel and one by a linoal descendant of the peaceful Quakers, cry our for a "lair count or a fair tight." The genius or our institutions calls out for a l.iir vote or a fair llj;ht. Give us a fair voto a id the count will take eare of iUelf. Did any of our Democratic friends look at tlio voto in New York Cil? Governor Hayes there received lour thousand more votes than General Giantdld in 1872, and 2,010 moro otes than Dix received when ho was elected Governor by 50.UOU majority. Yet Mr. Tlhlcn received thirty-four thousand tn Ji c votes In that city than we.'e given Greeley or Keinan tour tears ago,and twenty four thousand more than he re ceived wheu elected Governor in 1874! The Republicans or tbe Empire Statu say that the increase is a fraudulent and utterly impossible one. Precisely so ot thu vote in Brooklyn. There is no falling off, but an increase or the Re publican vole In those two cities: but tho tremendous Increase or tho Tildeu voto overcomes tho majority of forty thousand given Hayes by tho remain der ot the State. I believe that Missis sippi, Alabama and North Carolina are unquestionably Republican; but thu Democrats organized themselves iulo military companies and havo forced thu ballot-boxes to utter Democratlo ma jorities. Republicans believe this is all wrong, but they submit becuuso tuo majorities in those States are procured under the apparent forms of law. Thu Democrats must also submit to the re sult ot tho canvass of votes In three Southern States now attracting atten tion. Each or those States will send certificates of tlio election signed by thu proper officers ot tlio Stato and at tested by Its soal. It should be borne In mind that Til den's popular majority all comes from the Slates lately in rebellion, Indeed ho carries bat tour States, out or tho thirty-eight, which wero not actually in tho rebellion, or moro or less iden tified with it. In the States which con tributed the men and money to put down tho rebellion Mr. Hayes has a majorltr as largo as lliuoa has lu tho wholo Union. Holt County Items. Holt County Sentinel, Nor. 17. THE FIRE FIEND IT DEVASTATES MOUND CITY. On last Friday night a fire broke out in Mound City In tills county, which came near destroying the wholu town. Tho fire was first discovered about ten o'clock in the stables connected with tho Central Hotel. Tho alarm was at once given and citizens from the town and surrouuding country promptly re- sponueu. The stables and adjoining building contained a number of horses, two cows and calves, and soveral head of hogs. These animals wero all driven out beforo tho flames reached that por tion of tho stable in which they wero confined. Tho tire having begun in the hay mow, it was useless to try to savo the building, and all hands abandefrcd it and worked to save the hotel and other buildings nearby. Fortunately there were thrco good wells and a large cistern near the build ing, and as the wind was not high tho men wero able, by tho nso of wet blan kets, to keep the heat from Igniting the oilier umiuiiigs. At one tlmo It appeared that Mr. Crannell's liouso and barn, and Hoblit zcll & Bro's lumber yard, adjoining, must surely burn, but by hard work they wero saved. Tho only property destroyed, besides the barn and Mr. Cranoel's corn crib, which stood just across tho alloy, was two sets of harness, a plow, a feed cut ter, a lot ot bay and corn, and a fow other articles ot llttlo value. If the fire had over reached the hotel or any of tho adjoining buildings, noth ing could have saved tho property in that block, and tha north wind would havo swept tho wholo business portion ol the town, Tho fire is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary, and several sus picious persons have been loafing about town for some days, are now missing, A horse belonging to TV. A. Mackoy is also missing, but as tho horso was raised In Whig Valley, ho may have re turned to hi former home. During the uro William 6ImpUps CLOSING OUT or or Good Clothing and Furnishing Goods !

This lire ought to arouse the citizens of that place' to provide somo means of extinguishing fires. A hook and ladder company should be organized at once. Curtis Broacher, a four year old son of Agustus Broacher, who resides north of Oregon, got his left hand into tits feed cutting machine on thu "111 Instant, and had his fingers badly cut.

Evidently the editor of the Reper cr It in trouble. In bit Ittue of tha 10th Inst, belabors with a despera tion worthy ol a moro sincere heart to convico his readers that he is aa exceedingly "flnc-halred man," with a distressed mind; he obviously ap prehends that he maybe censured by soma Democrala-tVtr laboring for tW tueccis of tbe Republican coaaty ticket, "In the main,1 and apologises for so doing, on the grounds, "that he In dines to Republican principles." Oh I Indeed, how mnch? about lira dollars worth. Did you lie then, or do you Ho now? But that is no thins; for a man who holds to Republican principles so tenaciously. Fire dol lars worth of Republican ticket placed in the haudtofa man whom you knew to be an enemy to a por tion of your ticket, could not do much harm, and tho furnishing; of McLaln with an equal number of Democratic tickets to ba utedagalutt me, would, perhaps, make reparation lor the first gross injustice and flvo dollars more joined. Did you not , Mr. Paul, "carry yonr scrutinies," a little too far that time? Did you not sir, carryyour scrutinies altogether too far In oueiisno of October, 1874, wherein you made tho unwarranted chargo of bushwhacker against me, and apologized for the base falsehood in the succeeding uumbor of yonr pa per? When you republished the false charge made by McLain and Joseph Kelly against me, charging that I waa a salary grabber, full well yon knew that the charge was false in every particular, and done at tho instance of Kelly aud others, for tbe purpose of defeating me, in order that tbe S. S. Institution might get the deposits. I think the people of Andrew county. Irrespective of parly, understand this branch of the subject too fully to be misled, and will not therefore en large upon It; U not, I most respect fully refer them to McLaln's Demo cratic tickets. Mv object in writing this article I to give to the Democratic subscribers of tho Reporter a glimpse of the dirty inwardness of Its flno-balred editor, for it was to them that his soft-toned article and great professtous of fair ness and virtue were intended lo mis lead, hoping thereby to share a pat ronago aud subscription which he does not merit, but which is wholly duo to the Democrat. Us Is ready to cry anything that he thinks will cuhanco his Interests conservatism, granger, aud even honesty, something that is as unfamiliar to him a tha christian religion. Democrats do not permit him to deceive you lon ger. A man that will sell his partr, theu sell his paper, then endeavor to sell tho man who in good faith pur chased his paper, and last, though not least, after partially working himself back into tho confidence of his party, sells a man ou the ticket he professes to wish to elect, and ha too, a man who did as much, tf not more, to advance the interest of tha party than any other man, for the pitiful sum of five dollars, Is not the kind of a mau for oven Republicans to trust to say nothing of the Democrats. Had he boen content at the mischief ha teemed determined to do me, without an effort in hit issue of the 10th Inst, lo deceive tbe people, or reconcile thrni, believe mo I never would have noticed so'contemptlblo a being. Tha hypocricy of friendship after he had made his compact with corruption, iu defeating Mr. Sanders is nothing; that essentially concerns me, farthsr than to exposo his villauy. If ho will listcu to the voice of tho respec table portion of either party he may hear hlmself-dosplsed, execrated, da tested, an admitted liar, a hypocriti cal slmpletou. In conclusion I would say, that I do uot desire to wound the feelings of any man. but ou tho contrary, "de sire to merit tho friendship and co operation of all good citizen of what soever politics, religion or previous condition of servitude " X.KT4T&SY.
