M This gives Grant a majority of 218 electoral votes. The popular majority will amount to about 691, 166, a majority unprecedented in tbe annals of our country, as i em i Good Advice. Just as the Re publican speakers and Republican press, have all along been telling tho South; during the last Presi dential campaign, Horace Greeley, in his Tribune of .Nov. 3tb, re peats : "If the gentlemen of the South," says the sage of Chippa qua, 'would give more heed to tbe education of their poor neighbors, especially the Blackswould treat the in from this hour as fellow citi zens, having like interests and du ties with themselves it would not bo possible' to keep' the ignorant voting for plunderers and pccula tore evermore." If this is done, adds the sage, 'the gentlemen of the South may yet go to the polls and find, their field hands and cot tage tenants1 voting with, and not against them.". That's the doc trine. V; . Grant staid up till midnight on Tuesday night. By that time the telegraph had informed him that he was the choice of the Nation acain. He was still as immobiie.as imperturbable,' as silent as ever, While others were almost over come with enthusiasm, one could not have told that anything unusua had occurred if they read it in Grant's face He only said, "I am glad the people did not believe what was said against me." That wa? Grant's highest .enthusiasm. He was glad the people still bcl'eved him an honest man. Nbw Law CossTRUCTiON.--Every day brings something new. Only a brief while in the past, the maxim was gravely laid down that politics could be purified by lyine and the inventor tried it on ! And now comes tbe same modern law expounder and says, that a letter written by A to Z and received, is hot the property of the latter; but legally belongs to A, and on de mand, Z mcst surrender it ! Fun ny, isn't it? . The played "leach," across the way, who "pure" when he strokes his silky whisker, still wrongly in sists that our local assistant (Mr. Ham,) drew the life like portraits of his lying brother and himself. The writer of that sketch has known the boys from infancy up to their present insignificance. Important. Dr. o. t. is., an nounces in the last Radical, that the Liberals will "quietly submit to the result" of the Presidential election. Glad of it for it was feared tne Doctor wonld tear a board off somebody's fence, or do something quite as desperate! This assurance will make the country breathe easier! In Cincinnati, wbere tbe horse disease prevails to an alarming ex tent, there ia talk of procuring horses for tbe fire department which have bad the epizootic and recovered, so tbat they may not be caught as Boston was. , Grant's majority in Pennaylva nia, is 186,424. A Rose By Ay Other Name .. ' A friend of ours, .who is in the accrete of the "liberal" leaders hereabouts, informs us that a cau cus was held the other night, when the "grand high cockalorum," Ma jor Kinley, earnestly suggcstfil and urged in a few remarks of much power, that "the opposition o tho Republican Administration t-hiuld immediately re-crgauizii lie. scat tered forces, for tie campaign four tears bene" insialing . that ' as tho nauie of democrat had becomo a stench in the nostrils of tbe peon plo, it should be dropped out of the name of the party, and hero after it should be knou as tbe "Liberal WorkingmenV Party I" That, by this means lie mechanics and laboring men of. the country would unite, and, by conciliating the colored voters and inducing them to leave the Republican or ganization, the triumph of the "Lib eral Workingmen's Ptr;y would be assured ! We merely make a note of this early movement, eo tbat the Republican Party may keep posted in the plans of the 'common foe," and to suggest that there probably will not be a "won- u-riu; sigu. oi Qiucrenco between the sulphuric odor arising from the old rose when called "Liberal ,. . Democratic, or the new name the Major suggests, as, a substitute. "Let us have peace.' For the Palladium.

As ' tW p'5ri.t sp'-jr.n.his fir ' the meeting of th. : State L'gilaluTe', the question of a repeal of the Uury Ltws beins to be aeitated. and as the feelin in favor of the overthrow ef these relics of a by-gme age is much more mpU9 than ever before, there is some ppeet hat the efforts- to rid the stat- utes of them will be attended with sue- cess. There is scarcely a state 'n tae Union that has not lawt regelating the rate of interest. But recently, the Na tional Board of Trade, during it s annual session in few Yoric, stingly urged tho abolition of all laws regulating the rate of interest; and the Legislature of that State will be appealed to during the Winter to lake the initiative in a policy that will, sooner or later, prevail in all the States namely, to sanction free tefcde 80 to "P"k m 11 montMy ncS' tiations. Freedom in money should stand upon broad and comprehensive principles, for money is as much an arti cle of merchandise as Pork, Cotton or any ether commodity, and it would bo regarded as the height of folly to fix a price beyond which merchandise should not be disponed of. ' The prevention of extortion, the favorite argument of these who contend for Icgsl interes-, applies with equal force to either case. The great law of supply and demand may be relied upon to regulate money, as it reg ulates the prices of mere! andise. Besides, the usury laws are more or less evaded I everywhere, and are therefore productive of injury to the morals of a community. Thoueh it is illegal to stimulate for a i greater rate of interest than tbe statute " " r ----- rate, yet, by drawing up a note, and having it discounted at a high rate, the I borrower circumvents the law that was I intended to protect him. Interest is, or shou,d fair 0vlent for the use of mone' nd th'9 equivalent must rry ac cording to the available 6upply of capital and the opportunities for investment, in different places, in different years, and at different seasons of the same year. In the absence of restrictive law, the field of competition would be fair and honorable, and money would command what it is worth, no more no less. It is quite time these obsolete laws were discarded.

The space burnt over aas about 65 ' acres, and the loss is reported at from 75' to 8t millions of dollars, the finest portion of the city beicg destroyed. Tbe fire, which was so terrible that the fire men could not approach nearer than three blocks of it, and which melted granite walls like tin, was almost confined to the business portion of tbe city, reaching scarcely any of the homes and but few of tbe public buildings, and it was, therefore, not so distressing to" tho people personally, as was the Chicago Cre. just thirteen months before.

Never before, I think, in tbe history of any party has there baen so ably nanagei a cam paign as in tbe present one just closed. : The Hon. J. M. tdmunds, a genUemau : without any pretention of adroitness, bis in a quiet way inaugurated a system through which every voter, loyal or percontra would be mos intelligibly informed on all subjects and issues which entered into tbe canvass. He Was as free, apparently, to circulate indis criminately, articles and documents written in tbe interest of tbe Greeley cause as of his O' n,or of any one in the cause of tbe Repub lican party. But was alert iu dishing out in small but substantial doses, all the falacies of his opponents, and the result is that the good judgement of tbe loyal people of the country hast how n that they have appreciated h:s efforts by rolling up majorities fo.- a loyal can didate unpuralelled in history. 'i te Agricultural, Educational and other Departments will be very busy in making upT prelimin-ry to their reports to Congress the coming session. While our present Commis sioners of Agriculture bas but little hope and but littlu desire to remain in this position, he seems exceedingly interested ia furthering the best interests of the farming community, and is now as busily collecting statistics which will, I am sure, be highly appreciated in the forthcoming agricultural report. General Eaton, tbe Commissioner of Edu cation, is hard at work in preparing his re port. The General, while taking a deep interest in the re-election of General Grant, and has done ir.uch valuable service with bis facile pen, and upon the stump in that direction, has not lost sight of tbe educational interests of tbe country, and is now compiling valuable articles for publication in his report. Among them is one from Doctor Edward Jar vis, of Mass. - . , As to grrat enterprises, it iis naw stated that several capitalists will apply to Congress for incorporation as a company to build a railroad across the continent of Africa 4 000 mUes long, to commence on tbe Atlantic at I c: T T :t - i . ... dibit- r uioeria, ana ioena as tee mouth of tbe Red Sea on the line to and from India vi&, the Sues Canal.

During the recent visit of a par Ay Of Indians tO the Kas it, one of the num Iter, Squatting Bear, was 0ljServC( to behave himself in a very remsrkable and mystctious manner. Ho separated himself from bis companions upon one oc casion for several hours, and was then seen returning dragging a huge Saratoga trunk behind him through tb streets "with a string. When he reached Lis lodgings with witli a Mansard roof, while others conceived the idea tbat it was a patent bath-tub of SORIC peculiar sort, and that Squatting Bear in a . , , , , moment of mental aberration, bad been seized with an inexplicable and unprecedented desire to wash himself. The souls of the savages burned with indignation, as they contemplated the possibility of this revolutionary, enervating and de moralizing practice or tho pale faces by the noble red men. But when they questioned Squatting Bear and remonstrated with him; that incomprehensible brave mere ly placed his copper-colored finge upon his burnt-amber nose and winked solemnly with his right eye. - The trunk was carried throusrh to tho wigwam of Squatting Bear unopened (at tho expense of Uoclo Sam), and within the precincts of bis borne it was hidden Anally from view, and was soon entirely forgot ton. " In the tribe, the brave who kill thc largest number of enemies In any given year, and secured tbe usual trophies of victory, was en titled to occupy the position as chief. Squatting Bear was known to have anient aspirations for the office, and he worked beard to win it. Fnr awhile after his return he was r.l way s foremost In every fight; and vvlu n the tcalps were counted around the camp fire, he invariably had secured the greatest number, Gradually, howevar, certain of the brayes were impressed with the notion that Squstling's trophies sometimes did not bear a verv cor rect proportion to the ferocity ol the contest fir to the number of the salin. Soveral times, after a brief skirmish in which len or fif teen men were killed, Squalling would come sidling home with as many scalps as there were dead men, while, at the same time, the other warrkirs would together have nearly as many more The braves thfoi'ht it'was queer? but Ihev did not give the subject very serious attention "until after the massacre of a certain band of emigrants which bad passed close by the caiLp of the tribe. There were just twenty persons in tbe company, and after the butchery several Indians took the trouble to count the bodies srd to keep tally with a butcher-knife upon the ide of a chip." That night when the scalps were numbered, each brave had one or two apiece, but Squat ting Boar handed out'exjetly for ty-seven Of the most beautiful bunches of human hair that ever were sent west of the Mistissippi. The braves looked cross-eyed at each othemcd cleared their tluoals Two cf the number stole out to the battle-field for tko purpose of counting tho bodies again, and of aeertaining if this had been a menagerif wi.h a few double l ead ed persons in the party. Ycs, there lay exactly twent corpses; and, to make matters worse, one of them. was a bald headed man, who, for additional se curity to his scalp, bad run a skate strap over his head and buckled h under bis chin. . When they returned, the entire camp devoted itself to meditation 8nd calculation. Twenty men kill ed and forty-seven scalps in the possession of a sinlge brave, with out counting those secured b. otuer participants in the contest! The mora the warriors pondered oer this fact, the more perplexing it became. A brave, while eating his supper and reflecting upon the problem, would suddenly . imagine he saw his way clear, and he would stop, with his mouth full of baked dog, and fix bis . eyes upon he wall and think desperately hard. But the solution invariably emded him. Then all of them would glide behind their wigwams and perform abstruse mathematical cal culations upou them jam the points it.to the sand and do hard sums out of their aboriginal arithmetic. And they would tear around throgh the Indian rule of three, and strug gled fingers; and they wculd get sticks and go through their own kind of vulvar fraction, . and wres tle with something ihu ,hcy be iiecd to be a multiplication table. But in vain. t. Forty-seven .scalps . off twenty heads! , It seemed im possible. . . - . They tried it with algebra, and let the number of scalps equal x and the number of heads epual y, and they multiplied " into y and subtracted ; every letter in ihe alphabet in succession from the result uutTl their brains reeled, but still the mystery rcmsiaed unsolv ed. - At last a secret council was held, and it was determined that Squat ting Bear must have some power ful and wonderful charm which enabled him to perforu such meir acles, and all hands agreed to in vestigate the matter upon the first opportunity. So the next week there was atwlhcr'Gght, in which which four persona were billed, and that night Squatting eciually had the audacity to rneh out one hundred and. tighty-seven scalps, and ask those beuigLted savages, sit ing arouud their fire, to believe that he had snatched all that hair from those four heads. It was tor much much too much; they seized him and drove a white ' oak stave through his bosom to hold him still, and then they all proceeded to bis wigwam to ascertain how that scalp bust nesa was conducted by the Bear family. They burst open the Sara toga trunk, the first thing, and therein the found fifteen hundred wigs and a keg of red paint, pur chased by the disgraceful aborigin al while in Philadelphia. That concluded his career. They buried him at ouce in the Saratoga trunk, and the wigs with him, and ever since that time the' have elected annually a com mittee on scalps, whoso business it is to examine evry hirsuite trophy with a double-barreled gun micros cope of nine hundred diameters.
