The Lower Hon e of Congress now stands: Democrats.1^ Republicans. Greeubackers.1“ Iowa is to elect one Congressmen to till a vacancy, which will increase the Republican number to 133. New York is also to elect another member from a Democratic district. Add this to the Democratic side, and the vote will be 118. Should the two members be elec ted as above indicated the House will stand ns follows wheu it meets iu December: -. | R; D O Alabama.j • • j 7 1 Arkansas.! • ■ 1 ■ California.1 3 1 ..

It is probable that a Democrat will be seated in place of Orth, Republican of Indiana; and a Democrat will contest a Republican’s sent from Wisconsin, possibly success fully. In the event this is done, the Democratic majority will be three over all opposition, granting that the mem ber to be elected from New York will bo Republican. The Democrats can al ways count on a majority of the Green backers. Of the twelve Greenback members, Steveuson of Illinois, Ladd c.f Maine, aDd Wright of Pennsylvania, are of positive Democratic antecedents; Lowe of Alabama and Jones of Texas are also old Democrats, but against the ruling Democracy of the South, and not likely to unite with the Democracy ou nuy vital ti at issue. De La Matyr of Iudiaim was elected by a Democratic fusion with the Greenback men. but is defiautly independent of both the old parties, and Murch of Maine occupies much the same position. Both are of Democratic procilvities, if they have any lingering sympathy with either of the old parties; but neither would mars sbal under a Democratic partism ban ner. Weaver and Gillette of Iowa, Forsythe of Illinois, and Ford of Mis souri may be classed as more antagon istic to the Democrats than to the Re publicans, aud Yocum of Pennsylvania seems to have lost the trust of both parties by trying to barter with both. For all practical purposes, the Demo crats are likely to have a majority of from ten to twelve over the Republi cans. Should the election of a President be thrown in the House, that body at present would give the Republican can didate nineteen States; the Democrats eighteen. Indiana is equally divided between the Democrats aud Republic cans, aud De La Matyr, Greenbaoker, bolds the balauce of power. Rut when the House is organized, Orth will prob able be ejected and a Democrat seated in his place, thus giving the State to Democrats. Then a Democrat contest ant may be seated from Wisconsin, tuus giving each party four members, aud neutralizing the State. From the above it will be seen that the Democratic party will have a ma> jority in the House of Representatives, and that our party has the Dower to count in the President even should the election be thrown in the Lower House. The Democratic outlook is decidedly encouraging. Napposr! Suppose some Republican, (Dr. Ben net, Capt. Hoskins or Col. Deasou, all elegant gentlemen aud good citizens, but known to be Republican*,) should take a sudden notion about three days before the election to run for Repre sentative, wouldn’t he staud abont the best chance of any man ic the Held of being elected? Yes; aud while the election of a Republican might not prove a pnblic calamity, it would teach the Democratic voters of this county, who have allowed their preju dice to runaway with their judgment, a sound and wholesome lesson. The Republicans of Linooln now have the power to elect every officer in the county, and if they don’t take ad vantage of the occasion, they are a bigger set of fools than we have ever believed them. They have men in this county competent to fill the offices, there is no use to deny that, and we shall not bo surprised if they are brought out and elected. If they fail to profit by this golden opportunity, they will evince a greater spirit of magna nimity than any other class of men would show under like circumstances. Gentlemen, the field is open and pas tore inviting. Gome out and m ike it interesting for the “open field and fail fight” Democrats. Ohio ia a decidedly close State. The average Republican vote of the last five elections—and these are the elections that afford the best view of Ohio as it stands to-day—was two hundred and ninetysthree thousand nine hundred and seventeen; the average Democratic ' vote, two hundred aud ninety-three thousand eight hundred and fifty three. ( Here is a difference of only sixty-four ( votes. There is not a State in the Union, we venture to say, that will 1 bhow in the course of five years figures 1 is close as these. 1 The Neaaltrlnl Caaint. Onr neighbor of the Summit Sentinel tliiukH that the Senatorial content in this District is iu too gr^at a muddle for ordinary politicians to solve, and suggests as the only practicable eola tion a “free race” for the candidates. This, we believe, is the only plan that will be satisfactory to the voters of the district, ns the convention proposed to he held upon the 1st Monday in Oohi • her—as fixed by the proceedings pub lished in another column—can have no binding force upon the votorB of the District. Let the candidates announce them selves to the voters of the District, and let them pass npnn their ohiims on the day of election. We want no “dark horses’’ in the race. L 't every thing be open and “above board."— Me Comb City Intelligencer, Ah, ho; and that ‘’accounts for the milk in the oociaiint.’’ The above ex plains the "true inwardness" of the Intelligeuoer’s articles. Well, ns much wbr suspected before. The generosity of our Pike comity co-temporaries strikes ua as being entirely too great. There is too much selfsacriftee iu it. Now that two counties li ive instructed for a Lawrence county man, and there b ing no chance for Pike comity to get the nomination, onr respected friends come forward and demand a free rice. How will that, do for cheek? Excuse Lawrenoe and Lincoln, if you please. You are very kind and your generous offer is highly appreciated, but—please! exciise us. Let ns see. Was not Pike the first county in the district to nominate a candidate for Senator? H onr memory is not defective, a primary election was held in that county and among other officers a candidate was nominated for Senator. Yes,, and the Pike comity papers have his name flying from their mast heads. Surely, Pike would not “go back” on her own action! lion. Iv HarUodnlr. . It will be seen by reference to an other place in onr columns that the above named distinguished gentlemen will address the citizens of Liucolu at this place, on Friday, October the 17th. It is useless for ns to say any thing in behalf of Mij. Barksdale; he is too well known to require nil in trodnction at our hands, We will say, however, that the people of Mississippi owe Mnj. Barksdale a debt of gratitude which is hard for them to pay. When the Philistines were upon—and the darkness of political vice and ignor ance enveloped us, .he stood like the Horntii at the Bridge, with bared breast, fighting the enemies of his peo ple. For this, Mississippians can nev«. er forget him. Would it not be well to have a big barbacue on that day, and invite Mr. Lamar to also deliver an ad dress.

OCR WASIII*<i’TO* I.EITEB Washington, Sept. 27tb, 1879. Editor Bmokhaven Ledger:— Tlio New York Democratic State Cen tral Committee did a proper thing yes terday in “reading cut of the party ’ persons who persist in opposing nny portion of the Stato ticket. The motto of the party is and always should be “first pure and then peaceable.” The Californians of all parties aud colors and conditions in life are giving to Geu. Grant an exceptionally hearty welcome. Probably the same would be done in any section of the country. The General and his excellent wife have friends every where in the United States as they deserve. Very few ex Union or ex-Confederate soldiers, whatever they think of General Grant's military ability, deny him ex cellent qualities of head and heart. All concur in great regard for Mrs. Grant. In the S in Fraueisoo celehra tion there has been so far a cireful omission of any reference to polities, as was eminently proper. The Gener al's judicious friends here are much pleased at this. The writer has this day received from Hon Geo. W. Ladd, Representative of the 4th Maine District and a most re liable man, the following summing un of the result in that State. "Our peo ple regmd the election as a plain in fliction that the Radicals can never again carry the State. They can’t be gin. The R'puWieii'i vote was all out. They voted every Maine mau in the United States out of the grave. We. had not the means, and could not do this, and at least, ten thousand Demo crats have nor, voted. The result is this: No choice of Governor by the people; House of Representatives Re publicans by twenty or twenty-five, and the Senate in doubt and will be in doubt until the official count.” The producers of this country, as well as the manufacturers, will demand a hearing at the coming session of Con gress relative to opening new outlets for the sale of their productions. While we are every day growing ns a producing people, and prosperous times are probably ahead of us, little has been done to provide markets for onr goods, and if something is not done shortly, we shall have an over supply on hand, and dull times again. As it is now the ship owners and merchants of England are carrying our goods at a handsome profit, and making commis sions on trade of which we ought, to have the entire benefit If tin's system is allowed to go on the West and South will suffer, for it is in those sections that new productions are to be devel oped nnd will require new -utlets to be profitable. Leading Democrats are thinking of this subject; and ns the Democratic par\v is probably to pre dominate in those sections where new industries springs up the party should take an especial interest in it. The tindet with South America. which ought to bring wealth to our Southern ports, is nearly all going to Europe now. What will Congress do about, it? It is plain that, private enterprise can not cope with the British monopalists backed by the influence nnd liberal subsidies of the British Government. It rs the part of wise moil to take les sons of our enemies end to fi^tit onr competitors with their own weapons if they prove to be most, efficient! This sentiment appears to prevail largely in onr party now, even among those who have been opposed to subsidies on nrim-.inle No ntan of action has been marked out yet, but it is well, in Hie interest, of nil our industries, to dis cuss the means of pushing our pros ductions into foreign markets.

We are pained to announce it, but it is a solem fact that the news of the comparatively idiotic performances of a baker’s dozen of professional tramps in New York sells more copies of the even mg paper than the chaste, eloquent and patriotic address of tho President at a pumpkin show. Of course, this ought not to he so, of course the myriad-rains dcd public ought to overlo ik with scorn and contempt tho unmeaning walking match and rush with avidity to seize and devour the utterances of a patriotic President, even though he hold his of fice by a fraudulent title. But the people of St. Louis, who crowd the bill letiu boards of the Post-Dispatch to read the score and eagerly bny the first copies of the paper for the latest de tails, are as indifferent to great ques tions, os the people of New York, who have the score furnished by the ticket at the hanks and offices, and announc ed between the aots at tlie theaters.— Ht. Louis Post Dispatch. Yazoo Murder Case. Chicago, September 24.— llie limes | of to morrow will icoutain a'six-colnruu article on the murder of Dixon by Barksdale in Yazoo Couuty, Miss. It was prepared by a member of the Times corps, who was sent down to attend the Chisolm murder trial, and was subsequently set to work to get at the truth of the Yazoo affair. The ar ticle gives accounts of both Dixon’s friends and enemies, and the concln sion reached is that there is no doubt whatever that Dixon was a gambler, a murderer and probably a thief; that he was the leader of bulldozers in 1875, when the Democrats carried tho State by force; that ha hanged seven negroes during that campaigu of two months; that he became anlmjependent because the Democrats would uot have him any longer; that he grossly and wroogfully slandered B arksdale’s sister aud mother and that if Barksdale bad not killed him for persoual reason, some one else would have for political reason. A Muller Democrat. An honest, loyal, shrewd and witty, but slightly profane old Demrcrat in a town not twenty miles away, put to at friend the following startling but ex pressive conundrum and comment: •‘Will yon tell me what the deuce a Butler Democrat is? I should as soon think of speaking of a she tomcat.”— Boston Post. Hon. Jeffkbson Davis declines to be a candidates for U. b. Senator from Mississippi.

It has come to be n Well estab lished and generally acknowledged fact that the St. Louis Globe-Demo crat is nothing if not unfair, unjust and vituperative when it alludes to the people of the South and tin* Democratic party. An organ bit terly partisan, it scruples at no ac cusations, hesitates at nothing in its efforts 'Ho tire the Northern heart” and awaken hatred against the Southern people and the Demo cratic party. In its issue of the 17th instant, that paper pours forth the vials of its wrath upon the head of Mr. .Jefferson Davis because of his manly letter written a few din s ago. declining to allow his name to be used for the United States Senator ship of Mississippi, and in the same article eulogises a letter written by Geu Sherman declining in very dis-* courteous terms and unpleasant al lusions, a respectful invitation to be present at the re union of o\ confederate in North Carolina. \Vc have nothing to say of Gen. Sher man or his course and very objec tionable letter futhar than that no other officer in the army is scarcely capable of such a letter and that bis effort for political effect in behalf of his brother John will fall still born. The charge of the Globe Demo crat that Alt'. Jefferson Davis “is .as touch the leader of the Democratic party today as when at his bidding the South seceded eighteen years ago” is not only gratuitous,, but it is absolutely false; tut 1 it is a fuse hood born of a potty spite, a wicked malevolence, a pitiful envy, and an unreasoning, unreasonable hate. Mr. DavisJJnever was the leader ot the Democratic party. He was, in the days when he was a United States Senator, a statement taking and active part in the polities and affairs of the federal Union; one of the leaders of that party, in com mon with Stephen A. Douglas John Breckinridge, James Buc hanan, Andrew Johnson and other prominent gentlemen, and when the Southern States seceded he became President of the Southern confeder acy and the acknowledged head of Southern people. After the war, was over and the Southern states were coerced back into the Unio i aud rehabilitated with all their for mer rights save one of which the Northern states were also deprived, Mr. Davis retired to private life dis franchised and deprived of all polit teal rights, so that if he had wished it and the Democratic party had willed it he could not be the leader of that party. In the seclusion of his private life at his home, in his retirement in the fullest and most absolute sense of the word, from public life of any nature or degree whatever, lie is subject to the con stant hayings of the bounds of fanaticism. Mr. Davis never led the South into secession—not a sin gle state seceded from the federal Union at his bidding, The South would have seceded just as it did, and just as it believed it honestly had a right to do, if Mr. Davis had never been born. And the hum blest pri vate who fought with his musket in the ranks of the con fed crate army is just as mu di a tnito’ and is deserving of just as much blame as Mr. Davis. Why is he any more responsible than Mr. Alexander II. Stephens, who was Vice-President of the confederate states? dir. Davis believed that the Southern states had a right to se cede and when lie went with bis State oiit of the Union, he did vio lence to his conscience, his judge ment nor Ids souse of duty. * * * * * The assertion of the ftlohe-Demo erat that the state rights doctrines for when the Democratic party con tends, mean war, disunion an 1 an arehy, is the superlative >fa pitiful demagoguery, the crvstalizatiou of an unblushing, me.idiio'ty. “The Union one indivisible” is what Democracy wants, and just wha1 Republicanism does not want to centralize the government, and thereby destroy the union of stall's. Secession was bad enough, but a destruction of the Union of States by a centralization of all power in tlie ■ geueval government is still worse. The Democracy wants a free ballot and unmolested local self government. Republicanism wants bayonets at the ballot-boxes and a dictation by the general gov ernment of what the local govern ment shall be. Now which is in accordance with the constitution, which is in accordance with the wishes of the people? These Democratic doctrines and hopes and wishes were that Mr. Davis harbored and pleaded for. These were of the things that hon ored statesman has sacrificed Ins life for, his political hopes, his physical well-being, and has sub jected himself for the merciless criti cism of unrelenting and envenomed foes. Broken down in health, in fortune, in hope.s, not open his lips least he he overwhelmed with abuse . I---.-.-.7 is time these things should cease. It is time their agitation should meet the disapproval of every hon orable pap r in the credit. Stonewall Jackson's Itansliter The Baltimore Gazett says: When the Jackson statute was unveiled in Richmond some years ago, after the processious and the oratory. Gov. Kem per brought forward upon the platform a slender little girl, and, addressing the great crowd of old confederate soldiers said: “Comrades, let me present to yon the dangl'ter of Stonewad Jackson.” Somehow the tears sprang to every eye at the sight of this delicate child of their resistless leader. There was r.o cheering, lint every face showed a deep emotion. Ever since that time a tender and poetio interest has clung to this little lady, and tlieie are many thous ands who care to know of her well be ing. She has receutly arrived in this city, under the care of her mother, who never loses sight of her, and who brings her here to school.

They are at present stav ing with Mrs. Hugh Lee, at 118 St. Paul street. Miss Julia Jackson is about sixteen years old; tall, slender and graceful. She is a blonde, with fresh color and fair hair. Her eyes are of exquisite dear gray, largo and ex pressive. Her manners are gentle, bnt not shy or reserved. There is not any marked resemblaooeto the illustrious father, and she seems hardly conscious of tbs distinction that she enjoys and of the romantic interest that she car ries with her. • Another lortliern Ontritir. BnFFa-to. Sept. 25 —Tuesday last Chas. E. Schuyler of Iiittla Falls, a telegraph operator, called on the daughter of one of onr prorniuoi t citi zens at her school. Bcluiyler repre sented to the girl that he was in the employ of her father, who had been in jnred by the fall of a building, and desired to see her. She accompanied Behnvlor to the place wlmre he said her father wns lying, and aa the two entered the room he locked the door and told the girl she was Ilia prisoner until motley had been paid him. He then forced her to cony the following part of a letter to her father, which he had written: Hear papa. I ask yon to give this man $500, for unless he raises that sum within a week he is mined. He pledges you his word and honor, that it shall ho returned to yon in sixty days For this loan he has no security to offer ex cept myself—whom he has in keeping. He must have this sum immediately, or witnin a week. Bo long as I think von intend to pav this s"m just, so long shall I be kindly dealtll with. Hal at the first indication At this point, the girl stopped writing and begged to be released, promising to raise the required sum and bring it to him. On Iter swearing to never dis close what had happened she was re leased and yesterday told the story. Schuyler was arrested and confessed his crime to-day. On his person was found a letter to the father of the girl, stating in snh stance that he had his son Willie, who is six rears old, in custody, and would release him on payment of $5,000. and if not. forthcoming, the child would be drowned. Sehnyl"r was held to hail in $5,000. Names and residences of a number of children of wealthy people were also sound with him. Priiiarralic 't’alk. On the night of the meeting of the National Democratic C imrnittee in this city, illusion was ramie in tins corres pondeoce to the distorted accounts of its proceedings flint were certain to l*e sent from hence. A simple of th-se distortions is the rental of a difficulty alleged to have oceurr d between Mr. Thompson of Ohio mid Mr. Floss of New Jersey, growing out, as is asser ted of tiie determination of th» friends of Judge Thurman to saoifice Ewing in order to secure Thurman’s r-election to the Senate. The Ne-.v York Tribune of to-day fathers this statement The Tribune, in the manufacture of South ern outrages.and in its cons* uit,delib»r ate and systematic p“rv-i.<ion of facts wher ver polities are concerned, is ev< tidenf'y d ring penance for the brief sea son of mo leration mid fairness which characterised its eonrse during the period that it was laboring to elevate Mr. Greeley to the Presidency. In re gal?! to tlie meeting of the Democratic Committee your correspondent can state, on authority, that th>\ entire meeting was harmonious, cordial and pleasant that there was unanimous con cnrrence of opinion ana sentiment among all the members present; there was no dissension no dispute, an l not n breath that could indicate even a suspi eion of jealousy between Thurman and Fawing. As gentlemen in private con ference always speak ' with free loin and with some latitude the discussion was at times somewhat an'm ited on one or more points of interest but there was at no time so*inueh vs a spar of unpleas aptness between Messrs Thompson and Koss. - • • —-■■■— A llnrlifl.-J %il/iiinbtratlon.
