The NveiMbes lMtlns. In Arkansas the election was held for nine State Seuutors and forty mem bers of the House of Representatives, mostly to fill vacancies. The Repub lican majorities in the State were about 20,U0O, giving the Legislature in both branches to that party. In New Jersey the Senate stands 14 Republicans ami 7 Democrats; the Assembly, 32 Republicans and 28 Democrats, giving the Republicans 11 majority on joint ballot. . In Mississippi the contest was be tween two lull State tickets, headed '.' by Ames and Alcorn for Governor. The Antes ticket was elected by about 30,000 majority. Roth branches of the Legislature aro Republican, giving the party a majority of 250 in joint ballot. The special election in the Fifth District of Michigan, to elect a Repre sentative to Congress in the place of Wilder D. Foster, resulted in the election of William B. Williams, Re publican, by a majority of about 150 over Couistock. Kansas t hose ono half of the mem bers of the 8tat Senate and the mem bers of the If Hi of Representatives. The Leg Is"! atn.ro i Republican by a majority of 25 in the Scnat and a small majority in the House, and in nine out of tea of the counties of the State have chosen Republican officers. A Senator is to be elected in the place .f Caldwell. Maryland elected tho Democratic ticket iy about 20,000 majority. Two Stitti ofticers were chosen. The Dem ocrats have a majority of about 70 on joint ballot in the Legislature, and will elect a Senator in the' place of Hamilton, whose term expires in 1875. In Minnesota the full Republican State ticket was elected by about 10, 000 majority. The Legislature may be classified as follows: Senate Re- Sublican, 27; Opposition, 14. House publican, 00; Opposition, 45. - Ma jority on joint ballot, 28. Republi can loss from last year, 49. The Op position gain 8 votes in the Senate, which will count against Ramsey's re election. Massachusetts elected the entire Republican ticket by from 8,000 to 12,000 majoritj'. Henry L. Pierce was elected to Congress in the Third Dis trict without much opposition. In New York tho Democratic State ticket was elected, by. about 10,000 majority. ' The Legislature is Repub lican, with a good working majority on joint ballot. The Tammany candidates were successful in New orkCityby a reduced majority. Virginia elected . the Democratic ticket ly about 35,000 majority. The Legislature is Democratic on joint ballot, and will elect a. United (states Senator in place of Senator Lewis In Wisconsin the rum and railway ticket was elected by majorities vary ing from 12,000 to lo,000. The Senate is rum and railway by two majority, and the House the batne by a email maioritv. , In Illinois there wero oply county and city officers elected, with the elec tion of a few vacancies in the Legis lature. The nominations were made in a majority of the counties without regard to oartv affiliations. In some counties stright Republican and Dem ocratic tickets were run, and in other , counties Farmers, Independent, and Anti-monopoly candidates were in the field. In niauy counties the .Repub licans united with the farmers, and in others the Democrats joined with them. The Republicans and their al lies carried more Democratic counties than did the Democrats and their anPDorter. A careful analysis of the returns thus far received shows that with the light vote polled the Repub licans maintained their usual ascend ency. Among the interesting features of the contest were those for School Superintendcnt.for which office women were nominated in twenty-nine coun ties. In eleven counties they were elected aa follows: Alexander, Mrs. S. E. Brown. Cass, Mr. TV. H.Hinckley. Bocne, Mies Mary b, Urary. DeWitt, Miss Mary Welch. Greene. Miss Kate Hopkins. .

The following extract from an edi torial in the Inter-Ocean of the 11th, contains wnae and pith,' and should be heeded by every Republican, who haB the best interest of his country and party at heart: " - Hitherto during its whole history the Republican party has proved itself equal to every emergency. That it will meet squarely and manfully the econ omic demand of the hour m it met the terriblo exigency of war and the more .' delicate questions of emancipation and reconstruction, there is no room to doubt. There is chaos in finance, trade, and commerce. So far as gov ernmeutal aid is to be invoked to bring order out of this chaos it inust be sought at tho hands of the Repubr lican party. To parp at the party in power in an emergency like the pres ent is to betray an infidelity to the well-being of the country, no whit less reprehensible than the want of patriotism displayed by the Democrats of the North during the late war, in giving moral aid and comfort to the rebellion. Northern men vehemently 'declared then that the South could not be eoaquered; Democratic con ventions resolved that the war was a failure, and demanded a cessation of hostilities with a view to the patch ing up of a dishonorable peace. Lib eral, Democratic, and Independent newspaper editors sneeringly assert now that the Republican party is cor- A. J -1 J 1 aT i a rupi, ueuascu uy me tyranny oi cau- cus, and demoralized by local defeats, ut ag neither denunciations nor ... i j., a . , , r resolutions had the effect todeferthe . " " country from giving to the Republican party a hearty support then in its prosecution of the war, so now, neither the cowardly falsehoods nor the baee- i less insinuations against the patriotism honor, and integrity of the great party of the nation, uttered by reckless journalists and disappointed politi cians, will cause the people to with draw from it the earnest support nec essary to the fulfillment of its mission as the conservator of the economic in terests of the country. The situation is grave enough to excite feelings of apprehension in the minds of all who are brought in con? tact with the currents of trade, now prostrated and in danger of entire collapse. The people look anxiously to the reassembling of Congress as the only source of relief. To intimate that the Republican majority in that body possesses neither the virtue nor the capacity to devise and apply a remedy, is to declare that trade and commerce must continue to languish until the stagnation in every depart ment is complete, for if a Republican Congress cannot solve the problem it must remain unsolved. It therefore behooves Republicans to strengthen party lines in order that the moral force of public sentiment behind the majority in Congress may be exerted with the greatest possible effect. A great work opens before the approach- inc session of Gongress; the value of party discipline, or the demoralizing influence of the wrangles of faction, will find illustration in the manner in which the Republican party in the national legislature shall meet and grapple with economic questions de manding prompt attention. One of those great opportunities, of which the Republican party has had many, awaits the assembling of Congress. Let Republicans everywhere strengthen the hands of their representatives bo that, sure of confidence and support at home, they may legislate fearlessly and wisely. LMk sip Fsmers! Ninty-aix milions of bushels of wheat, says the Mark Lane Express, will be needed by England this year from other countries to make up the deficiency of food arising from the failure of the potatoes and shortness of her grain crop. France, instead of exporting wheat, is expected to need 48,000,000 of bushelo. Thus, altogether, it is be lieved these two countries will need 144,000,000 of bushels. Even rye and barley, yet much used in Farnce for human food, are also deficient in that country. Our farmers have the brospect of a 0od foaeign demand for their groin. The prospects of the Republic con tinue to brighten in France. It is not at all unlikely that now, after the monarchical cause has become hope less, the Left may make seven or eight more converts among the trimmers, and thus turn the tables upon their opponents. It is the purpose of the Left to induce the Assembly to appeal to the people, and in this they will, of course, have the support of the Bona partists. The justice of the point raised by M. Grevy, that the Assembly is incompetent to create a longer exe cutive tenure than that possessed by itself, is unanswerable, and must ulti mately be conceded by all. At any . rate, the crisis and the danger of a collision seem to be past. And Still Another. A Sullivan ilnd.) correspondent of the Terre Iaute Journal gives an account of a recent interview with a man by the name of Russell, in that county, who is nearly 120 years old. This old gentleman was born in Maine, can speak six different languages fluenty, has smoked tobacco for more than a hundred years, and chewed and took snuff "off and on." He gave 1 no' ex cuse for having lived bo long, and we - suppose the correspondent forgot to ask him.

Aa Unlqae Sward Preavntatioa. 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. " 'Take heed that Je do not your alms before men, to be seen of them; otherwise re havo no reward of your Father which is in heaven. "Therefore, when thou doest thine alms do not sound a trumpet be fore thee, as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. "But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth; "That thine alias may be in secret, and thy Father which seeth in se cret, Himself shall reward thee openly," Christ's sermon on the Mount When anything is done in the presence of the public for the sake of letting the public know about it, and when anything is done in a public congregation in the most conspicuous, ostentatious, and pompous manner for the sake of making an impression, it becomes, by right, the proprty of the pub lic and the subject of criticism; therefore I make n o apology for this article, though. I crave the kind indulgence of the editor of the Palladium in allowing me the space I want at preeeit; a friends mind will be easier thereby. I 1 wipe my eyes, and then my nose, to tiunK tnat tho days of chivalry are over. Shade of Rich ard Coeur de Ieon, and the saintly palmers of old ! Alas, for the gal lant knights who bore the banner of the Cross, inscribed "by this sigu we conquer!' When any class of people during a religious excitement set aside in dividual responsibility and declare that "the Lord is running the meet ing," there is some danger of lay ing too much on tho Lord; and if the Holy Spirit is to answer for all the vainglorious, silly things that poor mortal min is devigp, jt may be a good thing for the silly mor tals, but it is certainly taking un warranted liberty with the. Holy Spirit. We have many accounts of sword presentations in by gone times that where appropriate to the occasion, and had a meaning that could "point a moral or adorn a tale," but this last sword presentation that claims the attention of the Christian, and heathen, and Mahommedan world caps the climax of all that has pre ceded it, and is as remarkable for eccentricity as uniqueness; there is nothing coincident with -it in the past, and as it has no model, let us hope it will never have a copy. At the timo that Cornwallis wise ly concluded it was time for him to "turn his back" on the United Col onies and surrendered to Washing ton, that man who could not tell a lie when he was a boy, handed tho sword back to the British General with a great deal of magnanimity, courtesy and graco. The father of his country knew how to behave himself, and could get out of an embarrassing tituatioa with manly dignity and christian spirit. Ever since he told the truth about the hatchet he had been able to show a good "hand." He held trumps that day, and made s point ! Last Sabbath evening .when a certain Knight Templar presented his sword and the rest of his rega lia to the minister for the benefit of the heathen, and concluded hie speech with the declaration, "I turn my back on the world, the flesh and the Devil," the minister was evident ly in the condition of tho man who was presented with an elephant, he didn't know what to do with it "The world, the flesh and the Devil,' or the emblems of them, was rather a hand full for a man of limited experience, and afniclcd with sanctification in the superlative degree! Yet he listened to the pre sentation speech as one who is well pleased with his pupil, and took up the sword .with a flourish, and an attempt at dramatic jesture. Wo were reminded of the scene in the play of Guy Mannering, where Able Sampson gets ready to the rescue of Bertram, and exclaims: "Ix, I have armed myself. I will smite lustily! If there had been a boy in the gallery to sing out "phodio ous!" the burlesque would have been complete, and the que would have been easily taken. It is sometimes such a short step from the sublime to the ridiculous, from high trage dy to low comedy. The preacher remarked that a sword was a queer looking thing in Quaker meeting in time of peace. The congregation thought so too, especially the Sir Knights who were present A sword was a queer looking thing to be in any meeting for the worship of God, unless the congregation expected to be attack ed by murderers. Tho preacher said that he did not know the use Masons made of their swords The Masons knew he didn't, too. They knew he couldn't see the point! If he had been of the initiated, and had learned the meaning of the em blems engraven on the sword, he would have known more and said less. He said something .' about beating the sword hto a plowshare. Blacksmiths, spare that sword! The brunished steel is too fine, and pig iron too plenty. Let the heathen have it ! They can use i. for a toasting fork; it is long enough to stick through a good sized mission ary, and a fat baby besides. It is suggested that if there is another such jackassical forco to take place at the celebrated "White Watsr Meeting House, at the close of the entertainment, tho wire puller thereof shall say, "finally brethren, let us bray!" Allow me to venture some advice to any who may feel it their duty to give up a society that they may better serve tho Lord: Go quietly and soberly to your brethren and tell them your convictions, dispose of your regalia in a proper way, pay your dues and get yoar demit, and then "turn your back" on your brethren, singing: - - : "Adieu! a heart felt fomi-adu?u, Yo brethren of the myrtle tie." - J." But whatever you do, don't be in fluenced against .your good sense, by egotists and bigots 6 jny insult the best friends you ever had, and the memory of those who have passed into the - eternal world; and "beha've unseemly" or "become as sounding brass and tinkling cym bal." The Masons are a class of citizens fully able to take care of themselves, and stand in this community us good men deserve to Stand; they are not in need of vindication from my humble self, yet I am filled with 6orrow and disgust at a bigot who would tako advantage of a religious excitement, to persuade any1 person to do a thing which they would not do under other circumstances, and I am too nearly related to some of the fraternity to hear thern "stigma tized as "the - world, the fl?sh and the Devil" and be silent; and besides, a little selfishness comes ip;f as the cold, hard winter continues, and the panic increases, the wood pile may get low and the flour- barrel empty, then a friend who ':' doeth alms in secret'' may be found who can read and understand the Mason ic emblems, "a heart benevolent and kind that most resembles God," a strong and faithful 'left hand' that lets not tho right hand know what it doeth, a Templar Knight Rearing the Christian's emblem, upon bis porson and wearing the? .

The Spragaes and tbe Crast Deed. Concerning the deed, your corres pondent is able tc give more explicit information in regard to its provisions than was given at the meetingor has appeared elsewhere. As it' is now made out it is proposed by the A. & W. Spraguo Manufacturing Company, and A. & W. Spracue, to ?ohvey of their corporate and private property to their trustees, by way of mortgage, to be secured by notes amounting, say to $12,000,000, having three years to run, with interest payable at 7 3-10 per cent, per annum, with power re served to pay a dividend upon the principal on each recurrence of the semi-annual payments. Absolute pow er is (riven to the Trustees to sell anv portion of the property in their discre tion, and apply the proceeds i ratably for the payment of the creditors. It is also proposed by the stock holders in the corporation to deposit with the Trustees inajoity of the stock. of the corporation, to be held in trust by them, so that they, cau have, .at all times, the power to take possession of the management ot the corporation. The details of the instrument are full to the effecting of this general purpose Power is also given to supply any va cancies that may occur, by equitable judicial appointment, it was prepar ed by Esquires B. F. Thurston, Charles Hart, James Tilfinahast, and John A. Blood..

The general feeling here is one "of most complete satisfaction at the re suit of the work, and the creditors be lieve that they have secured to theiu selves the claims which thev- hold. The almost complete unanimity with which this satisfactory result was ac complished was perhaps as surprising to them as to the outside public, and the effect is to inspire confidence in all directions. Tne Spragueso earn estly declare their disposition to do their utmost for the satisfaction of al ODiigauons, ana.o eagerly express their desire to act in harmon'y with the' committee and the Trustees, and to agree to anything that may be con sidcred for the bct interests of all that it is fully believed that .no hin drances will interfero with the speedy settlement ot their anairs which can in any way be avoided by the debtor and creditor. .Boston Advertiser.

The Cuban Murders. The massacre by the Cuban au thorities of the four "Patriot Gen erals" captured on the. Virginius was certainly n dastardy and blood thirsty affair, but we hardly think anybody will succeed in making a cause of war out of it lhe Vir- giuius was a vessel of bad character and doubtful nationality, but aside from all questions as to the legality of her capture, only one of the four persons executed claimed to be an American citizen, and it is doubtful if he had ever been naturiized. Tbe four victimis were Beunabe Yarojt alias Bembetta; General of J Division Pedro Cespedes, Comman ding General of Cinefuegos; Gen eral Jesus pel Sol, and Brigadier General Washington Etas. The first three were Cubans, the last an Irishman, and all rebels in the eyes of the Cuban Government Their execution was certainly atrocious and disgraceful, but we see no ground for any war or talk about war Indianapolis Journal. In addition to the shooting of the above named Generals, later news con firms the report that the captain and crew of the Virginius were also mas sacred by the cuban murderers. The result is not anticipated to end in war with Spain; but our government are. sending war vessels to the Cuban coast f6r the protection of American citi zens there," and compel the Cuban au thorities to conduct themselves like humane and civilized people. Captain Hall's Death. "Wasaington, D. C, Nov. 11. The Star of this evening, in referring to the stories brought by one of the crew of the Tigress in regard to the cause of the death of Captain Hall, says: lt certainly will be better for all concerned that the entire truth should be developed while all participants in the expe dition of the dead leader, are with in reach to be questioned. The story that Captain Hall camo to "his death by foul means should be established or silenced beyond re vival. - It is well known here that Mrs. Hall, widow of Captain Hall, who was recently in Washington, is fully impressed with the belief that her husband was murdered. She has made strong appeals to our government to send out an expedi tion to bring the body of her hus band home. It seems to us that this will be the only really satisfac tory way of clearing up the mystery, and doing justice to both the living and the dead. If Captain Hall was poisoned, the tell-tale evidence will be found upon his body. It has been reported that though the government may not send a vessel solely for the body, that an expedi tion to be 6ent out for furthur ex ploration may call for it In this case, of course, care should be taken that none of the persons implicated by rumer in the murder of Captain Hall, should take part in this expe. dition, or to have any opportunity to tamper with his remains, and it would be better, we think, to have any further investigation a public one. This will serve to silence the possibility of any further cavil as to thecaractcr and thoroughness of the investigation. Those wrho are rejoicing over the defeat of the Republican party in a number of the States would do well to linger over th6 picture of the Democratic successes in New York as thus depicted in the Daily Graphic of Nov. 7th: "Our people have deliberately elected to important offices a num ber of men who ought to be in the State prison men whose political trickery and moral turpitude have been repeatedly exposed and are no torious. Some of these men are already under indictment for of fenses that are crimes. Uthers are not the less guilty because they have managed to cover their tricks, and with eel like slipperyness and rapidity of movement have wriggled out of the hands of justice. Our people have delipertaly and with open yes elected men to the As sembly, benate, and other olhcial positions, whose private characters are base . and whose political acts have covered their names with odi um and infamy. We do not print their names, because they are as familiar to the general public as those of the worst thieves and black legs and pickpockets. Everybody knows who we refer to. Men cov ered from head to foot with corrup tion : men whom an honest mechan ic or merchant could not invite to his house or be seen talking to on the street; .men actually reeking with suspicion and ' bloated with ill-gotten gain, have been picked up and put in places of trust and re sponsibility. , And this, too, by the votes of men who pretend to be decent and would palm themselves off as Reformers! Reformers, for sooth! ' Very few hogs have yet been sold in this county. One of our most enterprising firms of buyers has purchased about eight hundred hogs during the last two weeks, and that will probably cover two thirds of all that have been sold. Prices have ranged from four dol lars to three twenty-five, there be ing a decline on Tuesday. Many farmers are short of corn and anx iou to sell; while others who have corn think that it is worth too much to feed to hogs at present pricer. "While there is great anx iety to sell, however, few appear to be willing to accept the figures which rule the market at prcsont The wheat market is dull, with very little disposition to operate cither among: sellers or buyers. Only $1.05 and $1.10 is offered. Bush i ville Hepublican. : The Mariposa, CaL, Gazette says '.

W'isnard, Franklin. We lake the following extract of Mr. Baxter's address, and notice of it from the Journal of the 12th: "We have been preaching total abstinence from the pulpit and the public prints for the last thirty jears, but our efforts havo been un availing owing to the policy of the government in granting licenses. As fast as we throw water upon the fire from one side the enemy are keeping up the conflagration by throwing on oil from the other. It will be impossible to control the liquor by licensing the sale of the fluid. Nothing but total prohibi tion will ever uproot it Our law does not enforce total prohibition, but it is a very powerful instument though it will not work itself, and so one can hope for it No law is self-supporting. "If you were to license prize fights in this State it would not put a stop to the brutal sport, but when the authorities prohibit them per emptorially it would stop them without delay. . The same will ap ply to the social evil and the liquor question, and we need not hope to abolish either until they are placed under the ban of the law. The temperance people of Indiana have every advantage, they have the strong arm of the law at their backs, but the liquor men will make a tremendous effort to elect a legis latrrre which will repeal the obnox ioua liquor law now in force, and unless they are met more than half way, they may prove successful. They have raised large sums of ! money to cary on the campaign j and have formed rich and power I tul organizations, with a sole pur I pose of using their utmost endeav ors to overthrow the law. There is no time for idleness. If the en ergies of the American people could only be aroused on this question as they were aroused during the great conflict a few years since, then we would have nothing to fear.

Lst ua use cue - moral m flnence of temperence in our Itattle, and cease not the fight until victory finally crowns our labors and throws the ranks of the enemy into confusion. Mr. Baxter was loudly applaud ed at different portions of his ad dress,' and the audience was fre quently moved to tears by tbe pow er of lus utterances, it is impos sible to convey in a brief abstract like the above any impression of speech of such a character as this, where so much depends upon the manner of delivery. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Bax ter's address, half an hour was ta ken up in short speeches by mem bers from different parts of the State upon the condition of the cause in the respective districts which thev represent The meet ing then adjourned until this morn ing at 9 o clock. A Car far Hard Timrs. Ciencral bherman has been sur prising his auditors, high and low, by saying that the failure in rail way, mercantile, and speculative life are of no real consequence, and that they ought to go on until the conscienceless element is elimina ted from banking and commerce.
