PennsylAania, Ohio and Iowa held elections for the State offices on Tuesday last. In all three of these States the Democracy put forth their strongest men. They had the prestige of such names as Pendleton, Packer and Gilles pie, and made a courageous fight; and notwithstanding the Radi cals had to carry the odium and unpopularity of the XVth Amend ment, they have still triumphed over the Democratic party, lead by its ablest champions. Every body knows that negro suffrage is unpopular at the North. It was defeated in Ohio two years ago by fifty thousand majority; yet so deep-rooted is the hatred of the Northern people toward the Democratic party, that they have signified their willingness to accept negro suffrage in prefe rence to-accepting Democracy. On Tuesday last the Democratic party fought the battle with every advantage. The names of Pen dleton and Packer inspired the full confidence of the party and promised victory from the open ing of the canvass. Both were. national men whose services would worthily fill the require ments of the widest sphere of pub lic duty to which they might be called. Both have been named, in a national Democratic conven tion for the Presidency. The un popularity of the XVth Amend ment, which guarantees negro suffrage, to which the North is unalterably opposed, was worth fifty thousand votes to the Dem ocratic candidates. Still they were defeated. This result shows that there is neither magnanimi ty nor generosity in the North, and that the mad rage and fires born in civil war have not yet burnt out-that public sentiment is still violent, depraved and re morseless. The result of the elections on Tuesday last, under circumstances so propitious, show that we have nothing to hope from the Northern Democracy, as they are in a hopeless, irrevoca ble minority. We must confess that it is no slight relief to be rid ofthat anxious solicitude with which we once watched the move ments of the Northern Democra cy, hoping for their triumph, yet dreading their defeat, as if our very existence were directly in volved in the issue. We view the matter very differently now. We have at last accepted the fate from which the Democracy pro fessed itself anxious to save us, and though our change of posi tion renders their kindly offices no longer serviceable and thus extinguishes all pretexts for all future claims to our co-operation, still we should give then credit for whatever good there might have been in their intentions, and not reproach them with their ina bility to help us. IFrom tho Arkaneas State Gazette. Democracy, to win now, must triumph by such an overwhelm ing uprising of the people as will amount almost to a revolution. Only by such an effort can ma jorities hope to break the bonds of the consolidated power confer red by the results of the late war on the general government. This uprising of the people, it is plain, cannot be inspired without some modifications of the platform of principles presented to us by the Northern Democracy. Their want of practicability led us to certain, inevitable defeat in 1868. Nei ther Seymour, Pendleton, nor Packer are proper candidates in an exigency like this. They rep resented standing out in full re lief, more prominently than any other candidates who might have been chosen, those Democratic ideas which refuse to recognize changes, great and inherent chan ges, in the government wrought by the war. Had they wisely consented to acknowledge the ex istence of those changes, gone for awhile with the current until they acquired power to direct that cur rent, they might have been now in the fill tide of success against the elncroachment and aggres sions of a power which by their opposition they have strengthen ed. To this disposition Southern statesmen have been striving to educate our own people and have them pretty well "educated up" to an appreciation of surrounding exigencies. The contest for power at the North will no longer be between the Republicans and Democrats, but between Conservative Repub licans and Radicals. Then will we see the "great uprising," that will overwhelm the corrupt and proscriptive in their highest pla ces. Then will the appeals of the down-trodden and the captive have their force upon the popu lar heart of the North Then will be illustrated the wisdom of the advice of Mr. Greeley not to dis franchise any of a free people ! Because, said he, "we have seen that the slave in his bonds was more powerful than his master, by reason of the principle of jus tice which was crucified in him by his enthralment. So will the disfranchised minority be strong er than the enfranchised majority which may vainly attempt in free America to hold them in subjec tion." Removal of the Oonfederate Dead at Gettysburg. A committee of ladies of Rich mond published an appeal to the survivors of the Confederate army and the fathers, brothers, and friends of the slain, to raise the means of transferring the remains of the Confederate soldiers who fell at Gettysburg, to the Holly wood cemetery, in Virginia. They say: ' There should be something done with the remains of the Southern soldiers. There are about six hundred marked graves, and these are fast becoming ob literated. Their names might be preserved, and the remains gath ered together into a cemetery or burying ground, if any one would take the matter in hand." The Hollywood Memorial As sociation have the disposition to undertake this work, but do not possess the ability unless gener rously aided by friends through out the South. They offer ample grounds in their cemetery, and also the aid of their association to prosecute the work, should it be found practicable to remove the bodies to Richmond. Southern papers are requested to notice their appeal, which re minds the South that every South ern State has representatives at Gettysburg. Will not active men and women, in city, and town, and country, at once volunteer to collect and send contributions ? N. 0. News. TEXAS RAILROADs.-There is no question in the world, says the Shreveport Southwestern, but that the railroad companies in Texas are moving heaven and earth to build their respective roads. This is more apparent when contrasted with the luke warmness and apathy of the Lou isiana companies. It is seldom that we pick up a Texas paper but what we find-some encouirag ing account of the progress of the few roads located in that State. This should not be the case with us, for our very existence, as a commercial people, depends upon the further extension of the roads now under way. It is really dis couraging to us to see the energy and perseverance manifested by the Texas companies and then witness the indiffirence and ap)a thy of ours. Prince Polignac is now living very quietly in Paris, and devot ing his time to scientific studies. He still entertains the liveliest interest and. affection for the South and those with whom he served, andl always speaks of it as "my country." lie is a chivalric soul, and wielded a knightly sword.

'1Ihe Seminary building, hear Alexandria, was destroyed by fire last Friday morning between 1 and 3 o'clock. No lives were lost, and the students generally saved their baggage. They found tem porary shelter among the hospita ble citizens of Alexandria, and some of them are now on their home up or down the river. The effect of this disaster will be the total suspension of the Seminary until temporary barracks can be erected for the cadets. The building destroyed was about three miles north of the town, on high grounds, and in the midst of a widely extended and beautiful pine grove. For archi tectural beauty, structure and size, it was not surpassed in the South. The walls were of brick, and being painted white, present ed, from a short distance, the ap pearance of solid marble. The first impression upon the eye upon reaching the open parade grounds was that of almost magi cal beauty. The interior was con structed with great care. The lecture rooms and cadets' quarters were well arranged for health, discipline and comfort. It was surrounded by several accessory buildings, assigned as residences for the families of professors, and was supplied with an abundance of the best spring water. A more favorable location for a central seat of learning cannot be found in Louisiana, on account either of salubrity or remoteness from de thoralizing influences. The Louisiana State 'Seminary andMilitary Academy was found ed on land grants from the U. S. Government, made by various acts from 1806 to 1849, and by the Legislature in 1855. The Hon. Michel Ryan, of Rapides, then a member of the State Sen ate and a zealous friend of learn ing, aided the cause by his intlu ence and eloquence, both at Baton Rouge and among the citizens of the State elsewhere. The Seminary was first opened under the superintendency of (fol. WV. T. Sherman (now Lt. Gen.) and an able corps of professors, among whom was David F. Boyd, the present able and zealous Su perintendent. The session of that year began with a class of fine young men, who, in the course of the year, improved rapidly in scholarship and soldierly discip line. Its career of prosperity was suspended in July of the next year, on account of the war, in the course of which a majority of the students found benefit in the limited military instruction re ceived at the Seminary. In April, 1862, the Seminary re-opened un der the Rev. E. M. Linfield, and under his superinteudey and that of Professor Seay, but was again closed in April, 1863, on account of Banks' invasion. It was open ed October 2d, 1865, and from that time until the recent disaster was steadily gaining ground. During the last session there were in at tendance a hundred and forty cadets, and the session now brought to an abrupt and disas trous close opened under very flattering auspices. About one hundred of the ca dets of the last class and probably tihe same number of the present class, were beneficiary or State cadets, taught and maintained at the cost of the State, under the provisions of the act of the Gen eral Assembly of 1859. This sad interruption will be a serious loss to many of these, who are with out thie means to prosecute their academic studies. The disaster vill be lamented flu" and wide by all the friends of learning in whose noble republic there are neither State nor nationl bouud aries.-N. O. Bulletia. NASVIaLLE, Oct. 22.-Senato rial contest ended. The result has taken every one by surprise. Johnson's friends felt confident of his success, but it appears that a trap was sprung on him, as when the vote came to be taken, John son received 51 votes and Henry Cooper, of Davidson county, 55. Intense excitement prevailhd on the announcement of the vote. Kates of A .4y.$IaSg' at Slbmaft UIbee di hem.

The Great Proselyte.s Charles toyson, known as fathei Hyacinthe, was born at Orleans, in 1827, and finished his studies in the Academy of Pau, of which his father was Rector, and at an early age became famous for his remarkable poetical writings. In 1845, he entered the theological seminary of Saint Sulpice, at Pa ris, apd, after four years' study, was ordained Priest. He was next appointed Professor of Philoso phy at the great seminary at Avignon, and subsequently Pro fessor of Theology at the great setrlinitry at Nantes. He next performed the duties of Priest in the parish of the Church of Saint Sulpice, and after ten years' trial became convinced that his true vocation was preaching. He then spent two years in the convent of the Carmelites at Lyons, and sub sequently was admitted to that order and made his first appear ance as a public orator by preach ing with great success during a spiritual retreat held at the Lyce um of Lyons. He next preached the advent coprse of sermons at Bordeaux in 1863, and the Lent sermons at Perigneux in 1844, and in the summer of that year proceeded to Paris and preached first at the Church of the Made leine and next the Advent course of sermons at the Church of Notre Dame. During the last five years the sermons of father Hyacinthe have been one of the great attrac tions of Paris, and his preaching has attracted large and intelligent audiences. TIR 32DPARALT&LEL.-Referring to the action of the Louisville Convention upon the Southerin Pacific Railroad, the Shrevepoi-t News says : The adoption of the 32d paral lel should awaken to new life this section of country to complete the road to Vicksburg, which lacking but 90 miles could be fil ished before other points, ftmly awake'and energetic though they be, could take the field. No mat ter if this portion is owned by a party, the proper public spirit could soon secure its vigorous prosecution. Will Shreveport and North Louisiana remain longer dormant? Postpone work six months or a year longer and the Pacific Railroad is lost to Shreve port. VARIATION IN THE WEIGHT OP' CoT'roN.-The Charleston Courier nentioned some time ago tfiat John H. Holmes, a cotton brokeri of that city, in order fairly to test the vexed question of complaints about the variation of the weights of cotton, took a bale of uplands and kept it on the scale during the entire mouth, weighing it every morning and evening, and carefully noting the weights, the, wind, weather, thermometer, etc, The Courier publishes the result in a tabular form, from which we learn that the maximum weight was 4212, and the minimum 41 7 Lbs. The former in damp and showery, and the latter in dry and clear weather. fajor GIeneral Rolkiiap, tlhe newly- appointecd Secretary ot 'Var, is a graduate of Princeton College, N. J.
