VICTORY FOR THE REPUBLICANS! "THE COLORED TROOPS FOUGHT NOBLY!" DEMOCRATIC BARREL EMPTY! DEMOCRATIC BARREL EMPTY! LIKEWISE THE R-------! HIGHLAND COUNTY MAJORITIES! A HANDSOME GAIN FOR FOSTER! WHOLE REPUBLICAN COUNTY TICKET ELECTED, EXCEPT SHERIFF AND PROBATE JUDGE. Election day, in Highland County, as elsewhere in the State, was all that could hare been desired, in the way of weather, It waa thought that this'wonld bring out full vote in the State, but the dispatches show a large falling off over last October vote. In thia county, notwithstanding close, hard work on the part of both Com mittees, only a tolerable vote was gotten out. As compared with a total vote 7,235, on the State ticket in ISSO, we have a total of about 5,934 this year. The result in the county waa surprising and mixed, and was exactly what every body expected. That is to say, everybody expected to be surprised, and thought It would be mixed. The official count has not been made as yet, and we shall be abl only to give a semi-official result, but it is quite safe to say that, however inaccurate the figures may prove, they will not alter the result in the case of any one candidate, Perhaps the most surprising thing abou the county vote, to all parties, was that for Goveraor. Foster's plurality is 161. Lud low's (Prohibition) vote in the couaty with iaeemplete retaras at haad, will probably ge nearly 200. It satms impss sible te tell from whieh psrty the Prohi bitionists drew nest of their strength, bu it is probable tnat tne larger part came from the Republicans. The fallowing are the reported majorities fer State Senator, Common Pless Judge an 4 the Ceunty officers: Btate Senator S. H. Hursl, Rep., 234. Cemaion Pleas Judge II. M. Biggins, Rep., 344. Represeatative J. J. Pugsley, Rep., 214. Probate Judge R. M. Dittey, Dem., 29 Treasarer E. R. Pierson, Rp., 153. Sheriff T. II. Long, Dem., 539. Prosecutor J. T. Hire, Rep., 445. Recorder J. H. Keech, Rep., 378. Commissioaer Fraakiin Ladd.Kep ,104. Infirmary Director J. H. Anderson, Rep., 282. Coroner Jsmes McCeppin, Rep., 181. The majority of TT. II. Reed, Dem., in RossCoanty, fer State Senator, is reported to be 423, which elects him by 249 ia the District. For H. M. Haggins, Rep.JCommon Pleas Judge, Fayette County will give some thing over 800, Rosa about 91, and High land, as reported, S44 ; total about 1240. In 1S79 Foster'a majority was 105 in the County, showing a gain for him this year of 66. All thia ia spite of the efforts of the Prohibitionists expeaded for his par ticular benefit. Judge Gardaer probably had the hardest fight on his hands of any candidate on tke ceunty ticket, and was defeated. He will have an abiding consolation that he has made aa koaorable conteat, and that be has nothing to regret in his asaaner of conducting it. This, we are sorry to say is net the case with some other candidates, whether auceessful or defeated. The whole sale use of moaey, in open violation ef the aws, during tke pressat campaign, is no torious, and will not redound to the credit either of the candidates or the community. On the whole, the prospect presented to candidates desiring to run for office in the immediate future is not inviting. The prerequisite is money. If you have not a plethora of that, geutlemen, yoa will aave your friends the mortification of announc ing your defeat, by remaining out of the nominating eenvention. LEESBURG. October 11.

CHARGED WITH ASSAULT AND BATTERY ON BRUCE PARK. GREENFIELD, Ohio, Oct. 10. About the most seasatioaal bit ef aews that has occurred ia this eity for seme time past was the arrest of Detective Id Dines ef this eity, en last Friday afternoon, ea a warrant issued by Esq. Powell, of New Pe tersbnrg, charging Dines with assaalt and battery oa the persoa of one Bruee Park living aear New Petersburg. The warrant waa made returnable before any jastiee e tke peace ia the oounty. Dines, seeing this point, get the good will of the constable aad had the return made before Esq. Me Alpia, of this eity. This was ea last Fri day evening, and the trial was set fer Sat urday at 10 o'clock A. M. Many witaeases were summoned oa both sides, who were ea hands promptly at the appointed hour, and with them many eitizena gathered in the vicinity of thejustiee's office, waiting te see the fun commence, but the preseeut ing witness failed te put inaa appearaace. Later in the day he was seat fer, aad was brought here by the constable, which was a great disappointment te many, as seme rich developments were expected. The alleged assault by Dines oa the per sob ef Parle teok place the fere part ef the past week at a public sale of Hugh Mil aer, a few aailea southwest ef this city, Krone what we can gather the treacle grew out of a horse trsde Dines and Park had some time ago, in which Park sold or trad ed Diaes a balky horse, which Park had, aa Diaea alleges, recommended as a goed worker. Diuss had determined te get even with Tares, ana the f rat time they bad aaet since tke trade was at the last stc-ck sale at Hillsboro, when Parka asked Dines where he eould buy a goed horse for family use. Dices, seeing his opportunity te plav a oka upon Parks, recommended him te a farmer living near South Salem, to whom e had aold the balky horse he had got rem I arks. Aeoordingly .Parks gees te the farmer, recognises the horse at once, aud finds that he is the victim of a practi cal joke. The next time they met waa at Uilaer'asale before referred to. Parks re ferred to the horse trade, and words passed etween them, getting warmer all the time ntil Park gave Dines the lie, when willi- ut another word Dines responded with a blew, whieh seat Park to grass. This had seething effect ea Park, and tke matter cooled down until Diaes wss arrested, as hove stated. When Parks waa brought before Esquire MeAlpin, he Wae tried for contempt of oourt, and afterwards the trial of Diets fer assault caure off, whieh lasted until a late hear at aigkt, aad resulted ia Dines being discharged, and the cests ef the suit eing assessed against Park, amounting te near $30. Dines wss re-arrested on anoth er warrant iatued. by Esq. Powell, ea the ame charge, and this time the warrant is ade returnable before himself, at Kew Petersburg. We have not learned the date f this seeeud trial, but presume it will be seme time lbs early part of this week. The Petersburg parties seem very ani ens to get Diaes in their clutches, and if icy suoceed he will probably net get off so well aa he did here. P.C. Siace writing the above we have learned that Squire Powell was feuad in this city, last Saturday evening, and that he sscond warrant for Dines' arrest was duly returned to him, but he was unit to ttend to business, aud here the case may irtualiy be considered at an end.

MARTYRED lira beautifal Engravic, wia-; a retails at cctCtf They Knew His Worth. A clergyman relates the experience oil a faithful clerk who -waa tempted, bnt followed his better promptings. It shows that dishonest men value honesty in every one else but themselves. A young man came to a gentleman one day witii a case of conscience. He waa corres ponding clerk in a flourishing house of business. His employers had begun to direct him to write letters to customers containing statements which he and they knew to be false. He had objected and they said: " We are responsible for these state ments ; it is nothing to you whether they are true or false." I said to him, " Did they sign the let ters, or ask you to write them in your own name ? " As soon as the question had left mv lips I saw that, if there was a difference, both would be wrong, and I hastened to tell him sa He said, "I have to sign them with my name, pro Messrs. Blank." I said, "Your case is clear; yoa must decline to do it." He said, "Then I shall be dismissed:" and after a pause, " I have a wife and family." 1 met him some days after. " WelL Mr. ," I said, " how are you cettincr on?" He replied, " I am still in mv situ ation ; I had an interview with the part ners, and told them I could not write letters I knew to be untrue. They were very angry, and I expected to receive notice, but 1 have not received it yet. Months passed and he remained in his situation. After a while he called on me, and I saw in his face that something had happened. " WelL Mr. ." I said, "hare vou had vonr dismissal ? " ' No," he said, " I have not." and smiled. "What then?" A very confidential post in their service, with a higher salary, has fallen vacant, and they have put me into it ! On second thought these unprincipled men en naa come to tne conclusion tnat a clerk who would not deceive a customer would not deceive them, and was toe valuable to be lost.

He is rowing all these people about, apparently, to his entire satisfaction, and seems quite as cool as when he say3, ' You may im pugn my motivos, and dissect my argu ments ; but pray do not say my anec dotes are old. They may not be true, but they are surely new ; for I make them myself.' Social terrorism has no more effect upon Mr. Labonchere than to invite attack. It is delightful to hear him holding forth on the folly of walk ing through wet turnips, in thick, un comfortable boots, to shoot bhds which can be obtained in better condition for cooking from a poulterer; whda his audience shudder at his sentiments, however much they respect Ids audacity. ilis ideas upon lox hunting are also as remarkable, in their way, as his views upon tho Eastern quesdon. His pre mises may be sound or not, but there ia clear-cut logic in his conclusion. Hence his opinion, repeated any time this dozen years, that it is practically all over with Turkey, and that if England is not going to the wall she must tike Egypt, be thankful and let the rest ar range itaelL Such opinions have not been hastily or rashly formed. Thev are the calm conclusions of a clear head, trained in that best of schools the For eign Office. After his youthful ramble in America, Mr. Labouchere became attached to the Legation, where, and in New York, he left the memory of many droll sayings and doings. In Europe he has served in at least half a dozen capi tals as attache of embassy or legation, as the oaM might be, and has accumu lated a vast knowledge of what Sir. Spencer Ponsonby-Fane would call his pave. Ho may not be, by a great deal, the most profound of living statesmen or diplomates ; but he is emphatically a man of the world, who knows his Europe as well as America very well indeed. He knows tb j people with whom he has to deal, their past and present acts and deeds with fatal accuracy, and few know how and where to plant a blow so eflect ually. In one especial respect he fall3 under the ban recently pronounced, or rather quoted, in the Lower House. He is a determined water drinker, and never touches wine when he can get the pure element. But he has no vows, and, water being unattainable, will drink anything he can get. Like a not alien spirit, minus the imagination, that of Lord Sherbrooke, Mr. Labouchere takes a keen Interest in novelties of ail kinds. He has not attained the profi ciency of Lord Sherbrooke on the bicy cle, but at one time Beriously betook himself to the tricycle as a means ot exercise and amusement. But it proved a fleeting fancy, thia sudden passion for physical exerciso. The most calm and collected of men, 3dr. Labonchere finds his certain enjoyment in every kind of mental exercise. He openly confessed that he derived keen intellectual pleas ure from the lawsuit ia which he lately succeeded in completely checkmating his adversary. He also derives keen intellectual pletisrire from following, with amazing keenness of scent, the various maneuvers by which entirely worthless stock may bo brought upon the market. He also enjoyed himself as a 4 liesieged resident ' in Paris during the dark hours between the lurid sunset of the Empire and the gusty dawn of the Republic. How he wrote from be leagured Paris aa amusing and graphic series of letters to the Daily Xews is too well known to need more than pass ing comment. The ironical side of Mr. Labouchere's character is thoroughly well understood by his friends, who, knowing him to be 'as straight as a shad's back,' are delighted when he appears in hia favorite character aa a fanfaron da vice."
