Till KiltiT 1FKIL 1. IHHO THE KAN FRANCISCO ELECTION. The Citizens' Union in San Francisco haye made a pretty mess of the election. They used tinted tickets that they ixht spot the voters vrho voted against theui. This is a Wow at the secresy of the ballot-box and a direct violation f the law. A party which resorts to such a contemptible trick dons not deserve success. The Citizens' tick'fei was elected by a ma jority of several thousand, yet the prospect now is that the illegal votes will be thrown out and the election jjiven to the Workingmen. This is the only course left , and such a decision weuld teach the blundering politicians of Saa Francisco a lessou. Every man who casts his ballot has a right to cast it in such a way that no ether man can tell how he voted. The freedom of the ballot is the swlid foundation of the whole system of a republican form of government, and the men who attempt to destroy any of its safegaurds deserves to suffer for it. The action of the manipulators of th Citi aons' party was a clean case of deliberate suicide. The Kearneyites will et the election, and their victory sounds like the decision some times given in the prize rinij " won by a foul." THE PAPER CORNER BROKEN. The efforts to break up the corner on print paper have at lwt met with a success that will be a crashing rebuke lo the men who engi neered the forming of the "corner." The House Committee on Ways and Means 8 to 2 have decided to place upon the free list all manufactured paper, woud pulp and jute un manufactured from fl ix and straw, and all other fibre and fibrous plants fit for use for the manufacture of paper. This will enable paper to be manufactured in America at about half the cst for material that the importers have been paving. The fall in the price of paper will be like a crash in stocks after a pe riod of over-iufl ition. The tneu who combined to make paper so expensive to newspaper pub lishers, have put a lajf 6 auiou ut of money into the pool and it is to be hoped that they will soon reap the reward of their folly. MISCELLANEOUS. The Riilroa and the Mkohank;s Union Yesterday afternoon an engineer on the V & T. R. II. received orders from a Committee ef the Mechanics' Uuion of Storey cuiinty not t brinj his engine back te Virginia to-day. This beinj the brst of April the order made by the Union some weeks ago is supposed te 'ge into effjct. Mr. Yeringion, as will be seen by an interview in another column, has decided to send his engines to the round house as fast as the engineers are ordered oil', and if pressed to the wall suspend all travel between Carson and Virginia City. This will cause a number of complications t arise. The U. S. mails will be stopped, and furnish sidid reasons for calling out United States troops. The wood supply will be cut oil" from the mines of the Comstock, and Virginia Cfty will in a few days be out of provisions. As yet the Union has iudulgedin no overt act beyond ordering the engineers to refrain from running their en fines. What they propose to do in case the .Railroad Company persist in sending non union engineers into Stwrey county, can only be determined in the fut ure. That the Union can carry their point by peaceful means re mains te be seen. If they go outside the law to coerce the Railraad Company there can be but ue result. The State militia will be called out to preserve the peace, and if necessary tke forces of the U. S. Government will be ordered to the BCene of action. A peaceable settlement of the difficulty is the best possible thing that can happen. If trouble res alts it is likely to be something of a serious nature all round and likely to work lasting injury te the State. (JiLL. The newspapers which are at pres ent discussing Congressman Daggett's gall, will do well to turn toa case which has recently eoine to light in Russia. A church organist at A rat off, near Kieff, lately confessed on his death bed to the murder, twenty years ago, of a farmer. He committed the crime with the priest's pistol, which he stole and then placed in the sacristy, confessed to the priest so as to preclude the latter from giving evidence against biin, without infringing the obligation of eecrecy, and then went and denounced tho priest as the culprit. The priest, who vainly protested his innocence, was sentenced to hard labor for life, and when his liberation was applied for on the strength of the organist's confession, the reply was that he had died a few months ago. The gall of the organist above deteribed is as far superior to any ex hibition of gall which Daggett might treat us to, as the cheek of Bill Sharon is to the mod esty of a country maid of eight years. Oltvi BaRPia writes to a S in Francisoo paper from London and describes Low she met a beaatiful little girl in the street and kissed it " As I laid my warm cheek against bar's, she started back astounded. " The little girl had doubtless heard so much about Olive's " cold eheek " that it is not surprising that he was startled. Last week fifteen Indians were put through the Endowment House at Salt Lake.

Amelia Linkham, who was acquitted of the murder of a drummer named Uastman, for seduction, was married in Charleston on the 30th, to Charles Little, an officer of the Cus toms at Sullivan's Island.

The Baltimore Sun has published interviews with Senators Conkliug, Don D.uneron and Logan, all of whom concurred in the pinion that General Grant would not withdraw from the Presidential contest.

A new Japan ese Envoy will leave for St. Petersburg this mouth. Killed at her Weoiuno. In the midst of the great events of the war, such incidents as the following were comparatively unno ticed, and left to be long afterward related in print : Miss Annie Pickens, daughter of the Gov ruor of South Caiolnia, was to be married on April L'2, 18(5.', in Charleston, to Lieutenant Andrew de Rochelle. The wedding party was assembled in the Pickens resilience, and the clergyman was asking the bride if she was ready, when a shell from a Union gun in the harbor broke into the room ai:d lmist. Nine persons were hurt, but only Miss Pickens' in juries proved fatal. She bore the pun with wonderful fortitude, and was unmoved when inforuied that she had only an hour or two te live. De Rochelle said that he would like to have her die his wife, and the poor girl smiled an assent. The guests remember the scene a3 far more pitiful thau they can describe. The bride lay on a sof, her dress dabbled in blood, and her hair disheveled, while her pal lid face was so wrung with agony, that her ef forts to smile became futile. The ceremonv was hurriedly performed, though the bride's les was in a famr labored whisper, and her lips hardly moved in response to her hus band's kiss. She died immediately afterward. 1 roy 1 incs.

The Workingmen have filed a protest against counting the ballots of the Citizens' Union on account of a difference in tint, claiming that their own ballots are printed on legal paper from the Secretary of State, while the ballots of their opponents are not in con foruair.y with the law, differing in color, weight and texture of paper. It is known that men were staioned at the polling places during the day, to take notes of the color of the ballots and peisons voting them, and the Workingmen charge that the Citizens Union put up the jot pur posely to enable them to exercise a suivetl ance over the voters, iu violation of the Elec tion law. One report is that an employe of the Secretary of State's office, was made use of to secure the desired difference in the ballot paper. There appears good grouud for a con test over the matter, and many hold that the ballots are not in accordance with the law and cau be thrown oui, giving the election to the Workingmen. The count, now nearly complete, shows the vote as follows : Citizens, 18,754; Working men, 12,420. Byrnes, 17,230; Freud, 12,S76 THE LATEST. The following was received at this office at midnight : San Francisco, midnight. Owing to some mismanagement of ceriain election officers the count is not yet complete, but the Citizens' majority will be about ,900. INVALIDS UffD OTHESS gEEKHia Mr. Whittieu's "Maud Muller," according to a cot respondent of the SprintjfirAd Republi can, rests upon the following scanty founda tion. The poet and his sister were journeying through York, Me., aud stopped to inquire the way of a young girl who was at work in the haj field. Her beauty, and the modesty with which she raked the hay over her naked feet while they were talking with her, touched the poet's fancy, and that night the poem wag written. "If I had had anv idea that the plaguey little thing would have been so liked, I should have taken more pains with it," the correspondent makes Mr Whittier say.
