The Election in Vinton
The election on Tuesday was
the most exciting ever' held in
Vinton county. " Our readers have
been informed of the progress of
the canvass from week to week,
and it now only remains to re
cord the general result of the
battle of ballots which was wag
ed on Tuesday. ' , ,
' Our candidates for Sheriff and
ClerkMessrs. G. W. Pilcher
and G. E. Cook are defeated
majorities of about 120 each,
and the majorities for the other
portion of the county ticket are
from 150 to 200, excepting our
candidate for Probate Judge, H.
B. Mayo, who had no opposition.
Our majority on the State ticket
is about the same as last year
220. We have not learned the
majority given Mr.' Nash' in this
county. The official vote not
having been opened by the County
Clerk, we are compelled
postpone its publication .until
next week; wnen .we shall give
( it in full by. townships. .
,i. The lavishness with which the
McArthur Ring scattered money
and made ; promises in every
township can ' scarcely be imagined.
Nothing like it : has ever
been heard of outside of ?Phila!
delphia, and we doubt 1 if there
ever was a campaign fought
' that corrupt ' city ; where there
. was such extravagance of money.
, No price was too great, not.even
one hundred dollars to each man
in some .townships, no promise
too humiliating or base to secure
the influence of any man who
. was for sale. ? Besides, false-
, hoods . and misrepresentations
were resorted to by' certain men
' which should have made their
authors hide themselves for
shame and blistered the tongues
of those who retailed the mali

that the .Radical majority of 20,

at least 10,000, and perhaps the
election of Judge J.' L. Green
for Supreme Judge over Welch.
We1 have gained two members of
Congress in this , State elected

State ticket last Tuesday by so

ertionB'in November. ' ;
In Pennsylvania the1 Grantites
have elected their ' Governor by
fraud by1 a few thousand ' majori
ty. Our defeat there is owing
to the enormous frauds perpetra
ted in Philadelphia. This re
sult was foreshadowed from the
moment it was ascertained that
165,000 names, 35,000 or 10,
000 of which are false, were put
upon the registration books by the
Grant-Cameron Ring in that city.
With' such a list of ialse names
they are fully prepared; for rol
ling up any majority that might
be needed to neutralize and over
come the Democratic and Liber
al majorities as, they, should be
received from the rural districts.
But, in spite of the fact that the
corruptionists in that State are
victorious, and the consciousness
that this election has . been car
ried by a series of the most un
blushing frauds, our conviction
of the manner in which the re
sult has been secured does not
render us less sensible of the
serious effect it will have on the
chances of Mr. Greeley for the
Presidency. The moral of this
Pennsylvania election is a drea
ry one. It snows that any - ad
ministration, with the resource
of the U. S. Treasury at its com
mand, a legion of: office-holders
at its back and call,! the roughs
and repeaters as a supplementa
ry force, and thousands of men
styling themselves "free Ameri
can citizens" standing in the
political market ready to be
bought, can carry any. State at
pleasure and elect any man 'it
pleases by any majority it chooses.
Official returns from 103
counties in Georgia have been
received, which foot up ; 50,671
majority for the Greeley Ticket
in the State. There ; are - 32
counties yet to hear from, which
will swell the majority to 60,000.
Put Georgia down for Greeley,
Honesty , and Reform, at the
Presidential election on the 5th
of November!
A thousand cheers for Georgia !
Hurrah for Greeley 1 '
The returns from Indiana are
very meager, but Hendricks has
undoubtedly carried the State by
a small majority. ' An effort is
being made by the Grantites to
"count him out" a game they
often play in the Iloosier State
within a few hours after the polls
are closed. Downright' fraud
and negro importation have cu
down Hendricks' majority to less
than one thousand. NiblackIb
(,. ... I ....
re-elected to Congress, but Dan.
W. Voorhes' is "probably defeated
by a few votes," '
It is said thai., the . Radicals
have carried the little State
Nebraska ' by 3,000 majority,
It does not require as much mon
ey to carry that State ' as Ohio,
Indiana, and Pennsylvania. Lei
it be remembered the money is
stolen from the people. ;

jThe Cincinnati 'Enquirer. says:
"The carrying of, Indiana for
HendrickB for Governor .fassures
the success of Greeley. at, , th
Presidential election. With New
York, Indiana . and the .South,
victory is assured for our ticket.
More than that, it, is an lndica-

Hamilton County Election.
The Democracy and Liberals
carried Hamilton county last
Tuesday by about 3,800 majori
ty. They elected their three
Congressional candidates, Dodds,
Saylor, Democrats, and Banning,
Liberal, over Hayes, Eggleston,
and Job Stevenson. The; defeat
of Eqgleston is glorious.
Two years ago the ;' Radicals
carried that county "by 2,700
majoruyyand, last fall, Noves
had a majority of 1,500. . Speak
ing of: the election, the .Daily
Enquirer of to-day says :
" "Here was the seat of Admin
istration power and patronage.
Here they had their hundreds oi
Internal Revenue, Post-office,
and Custom-house officers. Here
they spent their hundreds of
thousands of dollars among their
employes and contractors. This
was not all. They had the en
tire City Government, Mayor,
Police and all city departments.
This amounted in an aggregate
to hundreds of men and influ
ence to thousands: w Despite all
this and despite, the fact that the
enemy, imported hundreds 'and
thousands , of . votes, we have
achieved a victory that will ever
be memorable in the history' of
Hamilton county. , , it marKS an
era that will , not ' be ' forgotten!
The power of the Grantites oyer
her is broken forever. . , ,We, in
connection, with the Liberal Re
publicans, enter upon an ascen-
dency that will be permanent.
Whatever may ' have been done
elsewhere, our, .victory here is 'of
tne most imponani cuarauwjr.-'-We
have done our full iduty. , In
connection Ywith . the Greeley
movement, .we have, given' more
than could have been reasonably

Those Grantites of' Vinton
county who are in possession of
so much morality and decency
made one of their usually des

Saturday. Whew 1 what a mon

the thing looked grand, because
scarcely twenty-five, persons ap
peared 1 Those who were ex
pected didn't come, and it was
necessary that they should be
seen. ' This astonished the Grant
Ring; and it was resolved to go
throughout all the townships and
the land thereof and see the peo
ple to give the several amounts
of money which was required to
buy the votes for their candidates
for Sheriff and Clerk. They
went forth : some started on Sat
urday night; some on Sunday
morning ;. some . at noon; some
at flight; some on Monday ; some
at one time and others at anoth
er time! Some of them were ac
companied by whisky, and some
by money. Some were accom

ships were visited ; the money
paid to procure votes for theif
candidates for Sheriff and Clerk,
and the whisky drank. ;
