A Good Sign. An honast Rennr.lioan

month, added a dozen of this class of
men to our list. It does not signify that
they are turning to be Democrats at all ;
bnt it does show that thev are danirnua nf
seeing both sides of the political queac

institutions is the intelligence of the pea
pleOAw Democrat. , ;
Election of a Democratic State
Senator in Wisconsin. At an election
for Senator to fill a vaoanoy in the fifth
Wisconsin District, on the 13th inst.,
Hon. II. L. Pain er. Democrat, was eleo
ted by a majority of about one thousand.
The oity of Milwaukee, which gave only
431 Democratic majority in the Congress,
ional canvass last fall, increased that ma-'
jority to 700.. The res alt, says the Mil-
waukeo News, may be taken as a euro
criterion of what the Demooraoy will do
on a large soale in future eleotions.
