The Presidential Election.
The election on Tuesday last passed off on
this coast, and, so far as we can learn, in the
Atlantic Stales, in an extraordinarily quiet
manner. l!ut, tl. ,ugh there were few visible
tokens o( excitement, it nevertheless existed,
all the m.-re intense that it was smothered.
The declaration of Copperhead orators and
newspapers that, if fairly beaten, they would
submit, left ns to infer that they, like the Sc
ccssionists of the South, had concluded to go
through the formality of an election. Then, if
the -majority rule” worked iuto th- ir Land-,
well and go <1: bat. if not. and Abraham Lin
coin should be elected, they would hunt up a
pretext for rev alutioo—declare that the election
was not /air, or some such thing. '1 his was
the inferttree they desired the people to make
from their declaration or covert threat. It
now remains to be sccu whether they will cry
“ua/'&ir," and inaugurate resistance to the
authorities in the North, and thus openly ally
themselves with Jeff Davis according to John
S. Berrys programme; or whether they will;
acquiesce iu the w ill of the majority to as great
on extent a? possible wi bout breaking up their
quasi alliance with Dixie Time will show.
Let us hiele crar time, anJ wc shall yet sec yo
great Copperhead make* its expiring wriggle.
“Coming- Down.
The Ncw York Herald of a recent date has
an article on the general "coming do-v n" of
gold and everything else. Although the Her
ald is more variable and fluctuating than even
t-bc g»)IU market, or anything else, we make
the following extract from i's article:
4 Everything is coming down, and coming
down with a crash. The reason of all this is
that the rebellion is coming down. Early has
come down already. Grant will move presently,
and then Lee n il! come down. Then Sherman
will come on Hood like a thunderbolt, ai d
and nothing will be left of the so called Con
federacy but a few starved nrgr is. a good deal
of waste paper, and the mortal remains of Jeff.
Paris. Then Maximillian wj'l come down
from the throne now (ottering upon French
bayonets. Louis Napoleon, who, according to
foreign correspondents, begins to feel very
weak, will come down also. Lord Palmerston
w ill come down, w ith Karl Hassell at his heels.
We shall have the Jack and Gill business all
around. A great many people, at home and
abroad, on thrones and off thrones, at the
North aid at the South, copperheads and
abolitionists, bond and free, while and black,
will certainly come down when the rebel rag is
hauled to the ground, and the flag of our
Union goes tip and floats proudly from every
flagstaff on this great continent."
Preliminary to the final ami complete coming
down of the bogus Southern Confederacy, its
last remaining strong support, the Copperhead
nomocracy, gave way ai d came down with a
crash on Tuesday, Nov. Bth, 1864. Since
then, the stillness of death pervades the wreck
and ruin of the mushroom concern yclept mod
ern Democracy; bat there arc no mourners.
Those who “stood from under" in the eleventh
hour have no expressions but those of thanks
giving and joy at their providential escape
from the dust and dirt of the ruin.
We hope Father Abraham will now 4 come
down like a thousand of brick" on all who, in
any way. seek to interfere with his plans in a
manner to retard the triumph of the Union
arms and the restoration of peace—real peace—
in all the land. “Comedown" upon the rebels
and their aiders and abettors everywhere, with
a last vigorous effort—then the “power of the
Lord” will come down, and secession will go
down, never again to raise its Lead in these
United States So mote it be.
Hood and Siikbm vx.—The Stockton fade
pendent seems to think that the rebel Hood,
by marching his army into Tennessee, has got
it into a position where it cannot extricate
itself. Such, indeed, does api>oar to be the
case, flood has a superior force in his front,
commanded by the veteran Thomas, and a
largo force in bis rear to cut off his retreat,
while Sherman is making for Atlanta to com
mcnce offensive operations in that direction.
The head and the heart of the rebellion is un
questionably in deadly peril. Grant scorns to
bo master of the situation in Virginia, and
Sherman controls tlre vital point in Georgia.
If these great chieftains can maintain their
foothold, farewell to the Jiff. Davis Hubble—
it will burst as suddenly ns many other bubbles
which have for a time attracted the eye of l!,c
world, and disappeared—at first seeming to be
possessed of great vitality, but, like meteors,
passing from sight before the fact is realized
that they arc only evanescent vapor, after all.
More Foiu ibi k Since Ki.kottox.—“Where
is the fire?" asked a Copperhead, rushing oat
vl bis boose in Batavia, New York, in alarm
at the ringing of the church bells over Sheri
dan’s victory. "In the front, flank and rear of
the allied Democracy of the South and the
North," was a Union ighbor's ready i
The ■ . tb Northern wing
of the “Dixie Democracy” on Tuesday last
only appeared to add fuel to the consuming fire
which is so rapidly sweep!: : it fr, m existence.
There is a hospital tor the insane of the

The Result.
One of tbe most memorable political cam
paigns which has ever occurred in this or any
country ha; just closed. There can scarcely be
a doubt as to the result. even in the mind of
the most inveterate Copperhead. Abraham
Uacoln has been reelected President of tbe
United Slates of America. He is the sixth
President who has been called upon by the
people to serve them in that capacity for two
terms, or eight vear ; . As appropriate to the
occasion, we give in this connection the comes
and terms of office of the Sve preceding two
term Presidents: George Washington—April
30.1789. to March 3, 1797 : Tho*. Jeffers, ;,
March 4. 1801, to March 3, 181'D; James
Madison. March 4. 1 SOU, to March 3, 1817;
James Monroe, March 4, ISI7, to March 3.
>35 ; Andrew Jackson. March 4. 183. to
March 3, >37. Tbe interval between Jackson's
last and Lincoln's first term was twenty*four
years. AH of the two-term Presidents were
born on Son:hern soil —four being cativ s of
Virginia, while Jackson wa« born in S- ith
Carolina, and Lincoln in Kentucky. It is a
noteworthy fact that the four Erst named fore
saw that evil consequences would result from
the extension of slavery, and regretted that no
plan for its abolition could be agreed upon in
tbeir day. It is also remarkable that the Bf:h,
in his Executive capacity, throttled and deleati J
the nullification and scce-sion schemes of Cal
boon ami his slave aristocratic followers, and
promulgfd the immortal declaration, -Tie
Vmon nui't and shall be pi esei veil.” This
patriotic motto of Andrew Jackson has been
adopted by Lincoln and has been
the mainspring of all his actions as President.
It is eminently fitting that, as Southern born
Americans have sought to overthrow the
Government of the Uni'ed States, in which
Southern men have enjoyed the largest part of
the honors and privileges, with the hearty con
sent and co operation of the Northern pet: le—
we sny it is eminently filling that Southern
born patriots and statesmen should be the most
prominent leaders in r-ur straggle Ur Nati inui
preservation and the overthrow of the Southern
conspiracy against the Union. Abraham Lin
coln and Andrew Johnson, like Jackson, are
from the people of the Cronth, or, as the haughty
“chivalry” express it, ‘the inferior races.”
They arc representatives of a class who. at the
Sou'h. have exercised scarcely more real con
trul than the negro slaves. They have been in
subjection to three hundred and fifty thousand
slaveholders. But a better day is dawning for
the South, w hen a handful of pani[ ired aristo
crats shall no longer control and shape its
destiny; but the free people of the Sooth will
utii'c with the freemen of tho North in declar
ing that no aristocratic or barbaric institution
shall longer curse these United .Stales with its
contaminating influences. Having discovered
the cause of all our calamities, they will strike
at the root of it and utterly destroy it. This
will restore to onr unhappy country Union and
Peace on surer, more enduring foundations
than have previously existed, and will place
us, as a nation, once more on the road to
prosperity and greatness, at no distant future
to become the mightiest nation that has existed
on the face of the globe.
A Modkrn Jkffries.—General Albert Pike
lias been appointed the rebel Chief Justice fur
Arkansas, and is holding Court at Washington
in that State. The Court has decided that ail
citizens of the Stale who have taken Ike oath
to the United States Government arc guilty of
treason, and the penally is death. Several of
tho citizens who took the Union oath during
the two weeks General Steele held Camden
have been arrested, at.d hence a general stam
pede in that section to reach our Hues by those
who have taken the oath, of whom there arc
over eight hundred. This renegade Yankee,
Pike, exercises his new powers w ith tho blood
thirstiness of a defines. Looking at the career
of this mat) (remarks the New York Herald),
charity would suggest that he is insane. Born
in Massachusetts, bred a lawyer, with a liberal
education and possessing no mean qualities as
a poet, ho took up a kind of roving life in the
West, and. upon tl bt - - fth
lion, he turned np in Arkansas, where he turned
scldierandj Hoed the rebel cause. His brutality
in this capacity, at the head of his Indian
troops, will not be forgotten. He instituted
the savage system of scalping the wcnnded men
i n the battle field, and in every way gave
evidence of a wantonly cruel nature. And yet
he actually made application to the Govern
ment authorities in Missouri, subsi q unity. to
permit him to return to his allegiance and claim
parole fur his officers. The Herald say? it is
' not aware of the course the Government pur
sued ; but we presume that the atrocity of his
conduct forbade all chance of the application
being favorably received, and it is probab'c
that the natural ferocity of his character is now
developing itself in the exercise of the judicial
functions which JcfT Davis has bestowed up

' finest harbors in the West Indies, and would
be a convenient coal depot for the navy. The
(icopie of the islands are said to be* in favor of
annexation, and the proposition is not without
its advocates in iniiucntial official circles. It
is doubtful, however, whether Spain. England
or France would permit the transfer without
mi effort to secure these possessions among
Richmond.—A lady, for several years resid
ing in Richmond, and who has recently arrived
n Philadelphia, paid $3,000 in rebel money to
get there. The rebel authorities have advised
all females and non-combatants to leave Rich
mond a? so. na? possible. They do not believe
Richmond can bo taken by assault, but fear
that Grant will succeed in starving them into |
a surrender by cutting the railroads. They
freely admit that the loss of Richmond is the .
end if the rebellion, but they arc determined
to held out to the last. Every male is in the
army, and price? are enormously high.
The Guardians of tiif. Fi.ac.— W. H.
Beard, in the East, has nearly finished a picture
entitled " The Guardians of the Flag,’’ of a
patriotic character. On the rocky peak of a
mountain, cloud environed, from a rude staff
supported by the rteks. the American flag
floats; and below it, on every side, a score of
eagles, in various attitudes, are engaged in
keeping watch and guard over it. Inscribed on
the rock, at the ba.-e of the peak, are the dates
1776, 1813. 1.-GL—the first, moss grown and
licheucd ; the last, sharp and well defined.
News from Sherman.—A report is tele
graphed that General Sherman had burned i
Atlanta, and marched through Georgia fur
Charles on. The Union says this is not very
probable. Gen. Sherman is satisfied of the
importance of holding Atlanta,and has assured \
the President of his intention to retain his \
pii/.e. lie has doubtless started for Macon or
Augusta, for the purpose of doing all possible
damage to the resources of the enemy in Geor
gia, while ITcod s army is far away.
The sixteenwheeled railroad car, intended
for the President's use, is finished, and is await

Chief Magistrate, and to be used by himself

Murders bv Rebel Guerrillas.—A San
Francisco telegram of the 10th says : “J. Ma
son and Jim Henry have murdered three men
between Gilroy and Visalia, because they were
Republicans. The murderers declared their
intention of slaying every Republican they met.
One man was murdered in the presence of his
wife and four children."
Immediately upon entering Atlanta, Colonel
Walker, who was in command of the column,
sent the following dispatch to General Geary :
“General: We have possession of the town, i
The Second and Third Divisions entered to

These visits of Davis to the far South furnish
one kind of landmark? by which we max reca

the restriction e*f its limits. In ihe spring of

Both Chattanooga and Atlanta are barred

would be a very hazardous experiment for him
to trust himself anywhere in Alabama north
of the Montgomery Railroad.

will not be long, we trust.before ;i e third and
