YouX are not afflicted with mnany un pleasant episodes on that aceount, ar'! you, Mr'. Meschacebe ? The Banner, all excellent jouruna )publlished at our old horne, Jefferson.

It is entertaining to read the spl'eclI es of the Democratic politicians made before the electionm in the States whidh recently gave Republican uajoritieS. Their boasts of the victories to lje achieved and the annihilation of tlhe opposing party to be accomplishe 1, possess an air of vanity rendered Ihi 4icnlous by subsequent events whih is very amnusing. These speeches teac:h as a lesson in regard to the uncertaib ty of future incidents in general a ud the result of elections in particular.i Joe Coburn, the noted pugilist,; is out in a card to the public, in wli eh he states that his coming "mill " with Jem Mace, the English champion, tiill he his last appearance in the prize ring. This fight between Mace and Coburn, for the championship of the world and a few dollars besides, isi to take place on the 30th of Novemlber, within one hundred miles of New )r leans-if the authorities do not pire vent it. Colburn is now training: in New Orleans. The Turner Hall faction placed its snupport of the President on condi tions and contingencies that have not happened. The Custom-house iniqui ty and outrage have not been iunisl)ed or oven condemned by the Preside nt. 'I'he party which demanded thi as their sine qua iion must now chose between a whining, pusillanimous,,n conditional submission. or a resist nce and reorganization of their forces n a new base and strategy. Which vill they do t-N. O. Thies. We have but few principles in ' oum min with the journal from whicl the above is extracted, and we fully il) preciate its motive to be the diviion and destruction of the Republ;can party, still the question it propou nds is a pertinent one, and we unite ,'ith it in asking, " Which will they do" The Tammany Democracy of "'ew York city have held their convex ion and nominated their candidates. Vm. M, Tweed, the big "boss," is non na .ted for the State Senate. The Reform Democracy have jdso held a convention, consisting of dour hunded delegates, and Selected calIdi .dates. Mr. W. W. Curtis, in a spt:ech before this convention, said that; the Tamrmany party intended to pra4tiee fraud at the coming election, and hat the only remedy against this woul be to suspend repeaters or fraudulen in spectors from lamp posts, and h be lieved the law would protect suc ac tion. The following are amon the nominations of the Reform parts. For Judge of the Supreme Court, ex-J sdge C'. Barret; for Judge of Common P as, .Jdge Charles P. Daly; for Regi Ster, hen. Franu Siegel. The Republicans of Plaquemine par ikh held s; rousing meeting one day Iast week, and endorsed the State and National Administrations, tile Truner's Ball C(onvention, and the Stc te Cen iral Executive C'ommittee chosen by hat C(onvention. A recent municipal election in Car :ollton, L, resulted in a Republican }'victory. Gilbert J. Harurison, a colored man, being elected Mayor. Mr. Har risoe has since resigned the position, lhowever, and Governor Warnioth ap Il pointed M r. Zuinglius McKay, former ly )istrict Attorney. to fill the va cancy. Thirty-five years ago James Gordon Bennett wrote to Mr. Van Tramp beg ging the loan of two hundred dollars to keep the Pennsyb'anian, a news paper he was then carrying on, from collapsing. Mr. Bennett is now taxed for $6,250,O00.--Exrchange. If the acquisition of all this wealth was the natural consequence of the 'i attempt to borrow two hundred dol lars, let the man who begged us for a loan of fifteen dents the other day take courage; for if the ratio given above can be relied upon, he will be worth, thirty-five :ears from now, somewhere in the neighborhood of four thousard six hundred and eighty eight dollars and Aixry-seven cents. If he had only known this newly dis covered rule he would very probably luhave asked is for a thousand dollars. We find the following deserved compliment to an encellent journal in the New Orleans Mitrailleuse, of the 21st: The Attakapas TNegister of the pres ent week is briimful of good things. There are few men more capIable of 1 getting up a good paper than lion. Emerson Bentley. His efforts are racy, without being vulgar ; sharp, without being abusive; pointed, with- 1 out being libelous. We have never seen an article iin the Register that would offend the good taste of the most fasttiionus, r one that a hus band would be ashamed to have read in his family. Such papers are too rare in "the present age, and for this Sreason,. mý.,4he more valuable. We would he pleased to have an exchange of two nunbers each week, so that we could keep a complete file, free from the ravages of the shears. - -- -- -_ - The Louisiana, State Begister pro pounds some very pointed iuterroga tions to the New Orleans 1Tmes: The Times is very prompt to defend the amte-belhku politicians of Louisi ana, from charges of speculatioj and fraud preferred against by them Gen.

Robbery in New Orleans. The Semi- Iirekly Louisianian relates the following : Another big robbery has been per ietrated in the city in the middle of . day. By soma strange method, one of the bank boxes of Messrs. Nalle & Cammuack was obtained from the 1 banking House of Pike, Brother & + Co., on Campl street, on Wednesday 1 last, by a person unknown to the bank, although Messrs. Nalle & Cam- + mack were accustomed to send a par ticular clerk for their boxes when I wanted. The detective police were at once informed, and set about their work ; while in the papers was an advertisement offering a reward of $1000 for the return of the stolen papers. No information, was obtained I till Thursday morning, when the por ter of the National Theatre discovered a tin box and a bundle of papers in a wagon on the street; and on examin- 1 ation, they turned out to be the 1 greater part of those stolen the pre vious day. The detectives are still 1 on the alert, and it is believed they possess such definite information as 1 can enable them to fix the robbery. - MICIGAN FIRE TORNADO! i DESTRUCTION OF PESHTIGO, MAN ISTEE AND WILLIAMSVILLE. Statements of Eye- ritnes+es. JF'omu Greezn Bay (Wis., Adiocat Oct..12.j PESHTI(aGO. During the day (Sabbatn) jthe air was filled with smoke which grew mnore dense toward -vemug and it was poticed that the air, which ,ras quite -chilly (luring the day, grey quit, warm, and hot puffs were ireouent in the evening, About half past eight rclock at t night we could see there was a heavy - fire to the southwest of the towi, an:d t a dull roaring sound like that 'f heavy I wind came up from that quarter. At nine o'clock the wind was bllow ing very brisk, and by half past nine a perfect gale. The roar of the ap- 4 proachiug tornado grew more terrible . - at ten. When the fire struck the town t it seemed to swallow up and literally drown everything. The fire came on swifter than a race-horse, and within r 1 twenty minutes of the time it struck t the outskirts of the town, everything was in flames. t What followed beggars all desCrip- 1 r tion. About the time the tire reached ( the Peshtigo House, I ran out at the t east door, and as I stepped on the platform, the orind caught me and hurled me some distance on to my head ..nd shoulders, and blew me on Sto my iface several times on going to the river', Then came a fierce, devour ing, pitiless rain t fire and sand, so 1 hot as to inuite every thing it touched. 1 I ran into the water, prostrated my- t self, and put 'ny face into the water, t and threw wa.er over my back and head. s The heLt was so intense that I I could not keep my head out of the f Swater for but a few seconds at a time, r for the space of ne erly an hour. Saw logs in the river caught fire and burn- I ed in the water A cow came to me, and, rubedl her neck against. me, and t loweld iost piteously. I heard men, won(ul and children crying for belpl, Sbut was utterly powerless to assist any one. What was my experience was ' the expe:ieLce of others. < Within :hree hours of the time the t fire struck :he town, thlie site of Pesh e tigo was lite "ally a sand desert dotted t t over with smoking ruins. Not a hlen coop) or even a dry goods box was left. Through the sugar-bush the case i seems to be even worse than in the town, as the chanc s for escape were much less than neat the river. I es timate the loss of litei to be at least ilIree hundred, in the t wn and sugfir bush. Great numbers ,cere drowned in the river. Cattle and horses were burned in th. streets. 'Tne Peshtigo Companly's oart burn ed with over fifty horses in ti o stable. A great many women and children and men were burned in the streets and at places so far from anything combustible that it would seem im possible they should be harmed ; they were burned to a crisp. Whole fam ilies, children, mothers, fathers, sistere and brothers were burned, and rem nants of families were running hither and thither, wildly looking for their relatives after the fire. THE BUR'iNG OF MANISTEE. i The wind blew a heavy gale on Sun day from the South, and the fire that had been burning in the woods for several days burned up freshly and spread with great rapidity. The fire I company was out ad day with the en gine near Gifford and Ruddock's mill, t and succeeded in checking the flames. I In the evening a fire sprung up near Canfield's mill, and the fire company t promptly , epaired tgscene of action, but the wiid blew the smoke and sand at such a fearful rate that they were almost blinded, and could not check € the headway'of the flames. About 10 1 o'clock the engine gave out, and dur ing the balance of the scene was Ipw- I erless to assist. In a short time the t mill and about twenty small dwellings, the boarding-house, light-house, piers, lumber piles and Mr. Horton's house 1 were in flames. Tyson and Robinson's t three barges, and the tug Bismarck I were in stream between the fires, but I escaped by almost a miracle. A scow loaded with slabs and a spile driver were cut loose and floated dowr the I river. The spile driver was on fire, and it was feared that it would set other I vessels on fire, but fortunately it did I no harm. The barge Frankfort, and i several other vessels were near the mill, but went up the river to a place of safefy. While this was calling the attention of the citizens, a light was I I seen reflecting on the sky in the rear of the city, near Maple street. In an exceedingly short time a number of buildings were in flumes and rapidly 1 spreading while we were powerless to arrest them. Everything was dry and the wind blew a hurricane, and i everything was swept clean, not a vestige of consumable matter being 1 left. The districts burned over were: First about 20 acres west of and includ ing Canfield's mill. Second, a strip commencing on Ma ple streets from J. G. Ramedell's re- l sidence, and widening as it advanced, I and when it reached the river it ex tended from Ofik street (Buckley's t store) to Tyson & Robinson's little mill, a distance of half a mile, and i through the principal business part of the town, extended across the river, burning the bridge and the schooner 1 Seneca Chief, and destroying every l buildiug on the north side (19 in ali' except the Fourth Ward school-house, 1 SGeorge Thorp's house, aa~d the Cath olic Church. Third. Blackbird Island was liter i ly burned up. THE SCENE AT WILLIAMSVILLE. By Guillaume Delaluzerne, from Uniontownf we learn that the entire settlement of Williamson Brothers' mill, five miles from the shore of Lit tle Sturgeon Bay, was burned on Sun day night. The proprietor, John Williamson, with his wife and two children-his entire family-are burn ed to death, and about fifty-three other persons in the same settlement perished. Later.--Charles Kusterman, of Lit tie Sturgeon, writes us farther partic ulars. There were 12 families about the mill and 52 men in and about the mill. Of all these people but two were saved uninjured, and ten injured persons still living were found, and were sent on Monday by the tug Ozaukee to Big Sturgeon Bay, for medical treatment. Every other in dividual in the settlement is dead. Mr. Gardner sent twenty-five men to chop through the woods to this settle ment, our correspondent being one of the number; they found the remains of six persons in one house, and piled the partly charred remains of fifty-five bodies of men, women and children in one pile. Three or four persons at i tempted to save themselves in a well containing three feet of water. One of them had his head badly burned, and the others were burned to death. Latest.-One of the party sent out by F. B. Gardner called upon us on Wednesday, The party went from Little Sturgeon to the head of Little Sturgeon Bay by tug Ozaukee and thence chopped their way through the timber fallen across tihe road for four miles. The other mile they clambered over the timber. On the road they found three of the wounded trying to reach the shore. Others of the wound ed got to Kent's place, four miles from Big Sturgeon, where they are lying. Reaching the site of Williamsonville, they found no living creature but an ox. Twenty-nine human beings lay on a spot about 10 feet square, some with armls and legs burned ofl. and all with clothing gone. A few rods off on every side were others, and a man and child were found dead in a well. They fouind 55 dead bodies, and think the total number must be from 60 to 70. - JU.T APPRECIATION OF THE VALUE OF THE CounTsuY PREss.-The follow ing testimonial from J. 3. I)insmore, Esq., will be read with interest, as based upon a varied experience in advertising: " My opinion of the relative value of city and country newspapers, as advertising mediums, is decidedly in tavor of the country papers, price and circulation being equal. " I should prefer to have my adver tisement inserted in a country paper having 500(X) circulation rather than have it in 500 copies of a city daily paper. The country readers have fewer papers, and more leisure; and, consequently, read their papers more thoroughly and take better care of them; while the daily paper, after being glanced at, is thought no more of than last year's almanac. My opin ion is based on twelve years' study and experience in the business." Messrs. Job Moses & Son are among the old. .t advertisers in the United Sthtes, aind give their testimony as follows: " After a, experience of twenty three years as an advertiser in many newspapers, it is our opinion that the same amount expended for an adver tisement in a large number of country weekly papers, pays much better than in a small number of daily and weekly newspapers, i. e., the aggre gate circulation being the same. Our reasons for this opinion are that the country weekly is read thoroughly, and to a certain extent, the matter in the advertisement is beliered almost as much as the editorial articles, while the city dailies and weeklies are not read thoroughly, and the adver tisements are known to be advertise ments, and nothing more. Further more, the country newspapers are generally preserved for future refer ence, while the city newspapers once read are seldom referred to after ward. And as regards 'Patent Medi cines' (so-called) it is an undoubted fact that the country people consume the greater lortion of those nlanufiac tured."-Newstpaper Reporter. The Houston Union says: Captain J. M. Hart, District Clerk and Regis trar of Falls county, came down on some private business. He says that after the election he was arrested on a bogus charge and taken to Waco before the United States Commis sioner for trial, and was acquitted. All sort of intimidation was used dur ing the registration and electic.u by the Democrats to prevent a-ifir elec tion; but notwithstanding the county gave General Clark a majority of thirty. He says that about three hundred Republicans were prevented from voting. He was several times threatened to be shot, and at one time a rope was attached to a tree for the purpose of hanging him, but that a committee of twenty citizens inter fered and prevented it. He says that a majority of the white men who reg istered were so ignorant that they could not sign their names, and yet those same men are among the most bitter opponents of the free school law. Thus it is all over the State. Ignorance and Democracy going hand hand, as twin sistemr of rebellion. Chicago. p1 [From the New York Tribu.e.] For many years the name which we re have written at the head of these lines ta has rarely been spoken but with some T form of typical superlative. When na Miss Bremer visited us some score of of years ago, she expressed her anxiety i s to go to the West to see Chicago, " the vi hlonme of Loki and Thor, the superna- in tural Forces." All over Europe there w was- the same vague and credulous C] wonder as to this marvelous town un which had risen from the marshy bor- s] der of the great lake, with the sad- la deness and ease of an explanation. g( There was no story too wild to obtain cl] credence when the scene was laid in a' Chicago. It was, after New York, the fo best known name in Europe, for every g< village and hamlet had sent some of of their enterprising children there, who to wrote letters home full of the strange in vivid life of that strong new land. It do was scarcely considered an American w city among the simple peasantry of 11 Europe. The genial South German in thought it a colony of Austria. The c Swedish farmers regarded it as an ap- w pendage of the Scandinavian race. qi Even the home-loving Frenclhman felt 0: that there he would be among friends Ih and kindred. It touched by these o0 delicate chords of smypathy every na- ni tion and every township in the world. 01 At home, where no element of fable i entered into our ideas, the city seemed it scarcely less remarkable in its growth B and its robust individuality. With a ha less population than many others, it fe has for a long time claimed, with gen- le eral assent, the position of the second P' city on the Continent. There was a Y breadth of municipal life, a force and of confident self-assertion which im- in pre ý,sed the country, and made us take the lusty young city at its own valua tion. In readiness of resource, in the application of force to the novel pro blems arising from its rapid growth and development, seemed to take rank with the great capitals, It seemed I sufficient for itself iii all emergencies. s To handle the vast volume of grain o0 which the fruitful prairies poured into ir its binds, it invented the Elevator. It 01 lifted itself out of its marshes and raised its own grade by several feet, ii It moved stone palaces bodily and 01 held them in the air while it built base- ti ments under them. When it wanted h fresh water, it burrowed for a mile or c two under hike Michigan, and with h an audacity toward nature never o equaled in history, it tapped the bot- u tom of the inland sea. The dates of a its histories seem more fantistic than H any fiction. John Kenzie built his o cabin there in 1804. The Indians " massacred the garrison of Fort Dear- it born 1812. In 1830 there were 12 si houses scattered about the marshes, sheltering but a hundred parti-colored ii squatters, and in 1870, when the hair " of the first-born white native of the h town had not 1 egun to grizzle, the cen- t] sus-takers found 300,000 and gave to mortal offense to 50,000(X) more, who a5 insisted they were not counted. A c week ago Buffldo had in store 695,800 tl bushels of grain; Montreal, 511,210; ti St. Louis, 777,881; Milwaukee, 792,- a T335; Toledo, 1,282,487; Chicago, 6,- ti 078,560. There is a magic in these re ciphers which to the practical Ameri can mind means more than any bap- cI tism of poetry and romance. Since yesterday Chicago has gained , another title to pre-eminence. Un- ' equaled before in lenterprise and good ti fortune, she is now unrapproachable in calamity. Her name is inseparably ,, connected with the greatest disaster t of modern times. The burning of New t York in 1835has always been regalrded C as a terrible visitation, and anelderly gentlemen in Wall street stoutly as serted yesterday that the Chicago fire " was no greater. But the accounts of a the time say that 648 houses were de a stroyed--a grave calamity of course, but trifling when compared with the a 12,000 houses in ashes in what was Chicago. The great fire of London, which struck the world with horror n and gave a not unworthy inspiration " to the noble verse of Dryden, ravaged g a tract of 426 acres. But five square miles of blackened and smokin ruin n are the glastly credentials which ('hi- ti cago offers in support of her claim toi - pre-eminence in unisaster. i nen a tithe of the wealth of a community perishes, it seems that the very sources Sof existence are sapped. It is estima I tid that fully one-half of the value of Chicago has been annihilated by one day's destruction. It is one of those scenes where the wildest words are weak to describe the devastation. It is only by imagining New York obliterated from Madison square to the Battery that we can form some idea vf the extent of the catas trophe. The fire broke out among the dry frame buildings of the South Division, and was fanned and driven by a south-west gale-one of those fierce and unche ked tempests that blow over the lake and the prairie into the very heart of the city, over theatres, hotels, the coruts and the f churches, the enormous business houses and the enormos dwellings that made the young city =o beautiful and impressive, until, growing with what it fed on, and still scourged by r the gale, it leaped the liver aid rav t aged the rich and thickly-settled Northern suburb. Little of the city t except its southern and western 1,or Sders are left-the shell fiom which the kernel has been gnawed away. t The ultimate result is not doubtful. t Like Moscow, like London, like New 1 York, like Portland, the city will be built again. It has too much of life and elasticity to succumb even to a blow so terrible as this. It has its place in the economy ,of the nation and the world to fill, tnd cannot be spared. In the end it will certainly recover But there is much of uncer tainty and difficulty in the interval. The sudden withdrawal of this great and busy community :from the sphere of commercial life will proiluce a wide spread confusi ,n and disturbatce of values aipd relations. Chicago ,is a heavy creditor of New York, andt the whole Nor ti West is the creditqr of Chicago. At a time when money .is not over-plentiful, there comes this sudden and unexpected dempand ·for large sums to meet this fearful exi gency. We hope the prudence and coolness which the emergency requires will not fail. There is no justification for a panic. There seemed some dan ger of one yesterday in the first shock of the: frightful intelligence, but the tendency was handsomely surmounted in the afternoon. There is little doubt that our insurance companies will be able to pay all their losses. When this is done all can then unite in devising the means to repair the damage of the fire. But in the mean while the immediate and pressing question is that of hunger and cold. One hundred thousand people are houseless and famishing. The cities of the West have spoken promptly, and honorably, voting large supplies of money and food. New York will doubtless to-day do its whole duty in its organized and corporate meetings. But this is a case where every citizen has the privilege of making some of fering to humanity. Let none neg lect it. No greater calamity ever ap pealed to the hearts of men. Let New York show herself the first of the cities of the nation in charity, as she is first in power. __ n- -- . Unity of the Republican Party. From the New Orleans Republican we take this article: Since the result of the action of the Republicans in New York, Massachu setts and Virginia, it is evident that our fritinds in those States mean bus iness, and intend to win in the contest of the present political campaign. That there will be entire harmony in the Republican ranks for the sake of victory over the common enemy in those States, where heretofore there have been distracting divisions, is now tertain from the judicious course that has been pursued by the true fiends of the Republican cause and the ad ministration. The able and admirable attitude which has been taken by Mr. Horace Greeley after the proceedings of the convention held at Syracuse week before last, is well calculated to inspire the brightest hopes for the success of the Republican ticket in New York, and cannot be without its influence upon the elections in the other States where elections are to be held this fall. It will be observed from the manifesto issued by Mr. Greeley to his fiiends, who presented them selves as contestants in the New York convention, where they were defeated, that he gives a cordial support to the ticket nominated at that convention, and heartily approves of the resolu tions adopted by that body, and, in reference to the whole matter, says: We accept the ticket nominated at Syra cuse; and ledge to its support that solid three-fourths of the entire Republican vote of this city (New York), whose delegates were insultingly driven from the convention. We accept the miracle of clnwhainess ialled the platform; and bow to the mondtroun state Commnittee. Come what may, we must carry New York for honest government and against thieves. Let the new made oracles of the Republican party, who yestedlay strut ted their brief hour on the stage at Syracuse, enjoy their fleeting triumph; we have nobler work on hand. Such is the conndel which the old war-horse of Republicauisw gives to all good Republicans in his own State, and he also means it to be considered by the disaffected ones of other States as well. With the distracted and divided condition of our common f1 , we can not afford to have bickerings and squabbles among ourselves to endan ger our success. There never was a better opportunity than now presented in New York to bring all differences to a final end in order that the Repub lican party shall present a united front in this fall campaign, and win a vic tory which will be a prelude to the greater and more important one of 1872. The developments of the terrible rottenness and iniquity of the Democ racy in what was considered their stronghold, New York, has proved to be of incalculable service to our cause, and it insures us the vote of a State that has heretofore been conceded to the opposition. Vast numbers of the Democratic voters, especially the Ger mans, will now either a from voting, or will vote the Republican ticket solid in the November election in New York, and the probabilities are now that this vote will be frith us in 1872. Massachusetts is now a unit, and so, also, is Virginia, Let these examples of conciliation and forbear ance, so nobly set by our Republican friends, be emulated by the Republi cans of our own State, and let us all come together like brethren in unity, and with Henry C. Warmoth as our leader, we shall receive the congratt lations of friends in ah parts of the Union, and set at rest all the -expecta tions of Democratic harpies who hope to share the spoils of office through distraction in our ofrn ranks.
