A few more votes and Garfield wonld have 3-9 in the electoral college. The Metropolitan bell is not so fre quently heard now, ringing Democrats to their " crow eat." The fire on Wilmington street Sunday niht was quite destructive to Cheap John, h'6 loss estimated at $3,000. Farewell, farewell, noble soldier, good warrior, hero ot Gettysburg : the world owes yon a living, but not the Presidency. We are in receipt of an excellent com munication, from our distinguished friend, W. II Quick, in which he aks the sym pathy ot all for the defeated Democracy. The election roturus of the State come in slowly. That Buxton, like Settle, will receive the majority of votes, but how can h. be counted in, when his opponents have the counting to do ? The Southern Democracy should be the best mathematicians on the continent, for ; hey certainly do more counting than any people living, and strange to say, they never count themselves out. An exchange of this city predicted last iiat this week we would hear some- tTTtlT!jfmmmCT UlJ.ll (! LUI.lr voices for Haafeoek have 4i drapped," and the street song of "320" is heard no inert. flow about that post master who wrote to a certain Democratic journal of this city, Having he expected to hold his office under resident liancock, and would do nothing to help the Kepablican party at all ! We thiuk he will be numbered with others, 4i cast out." The colored firemen of Iialeigh never fail to do their duty at fires. And if some or our policemen would take a feather from the wing of their imagination and stick it in the tail of their judgment, there wonki be no trouble in the execution of the tire men's work. We learn that our young friend, B. J. Edwards, Jr., E-q,, business manager ot The Journal of Industry, contemplates leaving our city, to attend an institution ot learning. Whilst we commend the object for which our friend haves us, yet we are lot h to have him leave us He has render ed invaluable service to our raci1 in connec tion with the North Carolina industrial Association for our matea-. moral, intel lectual and general development. WTe commend 31 r. Edwards to anv community he u.ay select for the purpose of educating himself. Ia this community he has the con licence and respect of all, without re gard to race. The defeat of Mr. Edition, for the legis lature in this county (Wake), has caused universal dissatisfaction among the colored voters of the county, and their denuncia tions of the men who planned and effected bin overthrow are ominous of future evil to the unity of the Republican party in the Metropolitan county of the State. There is no use in disguising thje fact: the negro voters of Vake county have been sqld out by some of their pretended white friends, and the sophistical arguments of the men who did it to prove to the contrary will be un availing, and when the time for them to come before the people again for their suf frages returns the negro voters of Wake county will be sure to give them a severe letting alone. " A burnt child dreads the fire." The negroes of Wake, by the defeat of Mr. Ellison, have been severely burnt, and it is their determination not to be burnt again. The men who did the burning are known, and, at the proper time, they will be thoroughly exposed.

May the Journal of Industry flourish like a green bay tree, and its Editor live long and prosper. For the following complimentary notice from Bro. Richardson, of the Star of Zion, we make public acknowledgment of our gratitude, and assure our confrere that -it shall ever be our purpose, whatever station in life we may occupy, to deserve com mendation at the hands of such worthy gentlemen as the urbane, amiable and able Editor of the Star : ' Yrm.

Hancock for Garfield. We have always said that Hancock was " all-right.'7 The only trouble was, that he, like other weak mortals, fell into bad company. Hancock was the champion of a bad cause, hence the cause ot his shameful defeat. He thinks Garfield the man, and so do we : Washington, November 10. A letter was received here to day from Gen. Hancock by an officer of the army, who was formerly on his staff, in which General Hancock says emphatically that he has no lot or part in the agitation relative to the throwing out of the vote of New York, and that he. will not have any. He says he is opposed to the agitation, and believes that General Garfield was elected, aud should be inaug urated without any further lass. AN n ON EST CONGRESS.

They tnu.t learn that rascality of any sort or intiaiidaiiou i,f any character cannot be recogtazrd steopii g stones to seats in that body . W have had too much of that in the pjc for th- credit of Congress and the welfare of the country. The three last Congresses have pntittTd marked instances of the subverting of the popular will aud the character of the gov ernment by corrupt and illegal agtneu. The political character of the Hous of Representatives during these Congresses and that of the present Senate has beeu changed from Republican to Democratic by a gross subversion of the popular will in the South. This thing has been tolerated much longer than the national well-being will justify, and it is high time that a remedy should be applied t y this crying evil. Let the next House, therefore, draw the line closely between rascality and honest ejections, aud allow no member, no matter from what State or District, to occupy a seat under an evident despoiling of any party or people of their suffrage under any pretext whatever. Any Representative who claims a seat intfie House of Representa tives nuder a certificate which clearly cov ers a suppression of the popular voice by intimidation or fraud of any character which has shaped the result, should be promptly excluded from a seat as a member, and either the contestant should beteued or the case should be referred back to the people ; and this policy should be pursued until the legislative department of this government shall be constituted of mem bers who represent a majority of the peo ple, that majority being ascertained undfr an election in which every voter is permit ted to vote once and have his vote honestly counted. In the late election this issue was brought prominently to the front, and was pronounced upon by the popular judg ment, and the verdict as presented iu the result is clear and decisive. The people demand and will insist upon free and hon est elections, and tiey will not hold the next House of Representatives blameless if it does not inaugurate effective reforms in this regard, aud provide ample safe guards against intimidation and fraud in the future elections relating to this govern ment. It has the power, and it will be held responsible for its wise and just exercise. At every other point this nation is strong, but JjpitJfi elections, where the perpetuity public depends upon an honest and and a fair count, it is weaker by far tuau it should be, xand at that point centres the great daugefcto Republican in stitutions. We do not in r this ine of re mark refer to trumped-up claims, but only to those where intimidation and fraud have clearly shaped the result. National Hepub lie an. . Corroborative of our editorial as to the cause which led to the defeat of the Repub lican party in this State, we reprint the fol lowing from The National Republican, ot the 9ch instant : North Carolina has a Scare. If one-hundredth part of the effort and money spent by Republicans to carry Indiana had been spent in Eastern North Carolina the ten votes of that State would have been added to the Garfield column. The West1 ern part of the State shows large Republi can gains over 1S76, and if the Eastern part had held its own there would have been a Republican victory. As it was the Demo crats were badly scared for a day or two. The Charlotte Observer of Saturday said : 'It is needless to say that for the past twenty-tour hours much solicitude has been felt in regard to how the late election would count up for the St atetickets of the respective parties. There was a perfect confidence among Democrats that their ticket was absolutely safe until the appa rently appalling reverse was realized in Mecklenburg, aud then it was that calcula tjons were made that if the party had suf fered a proportionate loss throughout the State, the Republican ticket was elected. As the hours went by , and the election news from Liucolu, Gaston, Cabarrus, Ire dell aud Rowan came in, the gloom and dest3ondency which had settled down upon them over the defeat of Hancock became intensified, and the Observer cfiice and other points where news might be expected, were crowded by auxious seekers for the latest information in regard to the State election. To the general scare was added a telegram from Republican sources claim ing Buncombe county with miraculous Re publican gams, ana another ot the same character from Raleigh claiming a Repub lican gain of 5.G00 in sixty -six counties." Unfortunately for the Republicans there was little or no organization in the eastern part of the State, and the splendid Repub lican fight in the west was fruitless. How ever, Tilden's 17,019 majority is reduced more than one-half. A man who had been an inveterafe smoker for twenty seven yeara has sudden ly and permanently given -op the practice. He knocked the ashes off his pipe into a keg of blasting powder.
