Disaffection in our own ranks, and desperate efforts on the part of our ene mies, have combined to give the Demo crats more of success in this county iban they have had fur many years. The following is the result ol Tuesday’s elec tion on tli c several candidates : garauel Fallows, for State Superinten dent, has about 40 majority. John Strachan, Dcm. fur Congress, has majority. Francis Little, Rep., for State Senator, has 5C majority. John J. Davis Rep, for Assembly, South District., has hi majority. If. C. Barnard, Dem., for Assembly, North District, has about 100 majority. James Ryan, Dem , for Sheriff, lias rr ■ ■ • about 50 majority. Francis Vivian, Rep., for Treasurer has about 255 majority. Richard Do-tan, Dcm, for Register, has about 220 majority. Orville Strong, Dem , for Clerk of the Board, about 407 majority. 0. Kessler, Rep., for Clerk of the Cir cuit Court, about 400 majority. J M. Smith, Dem , for District Attor ney, about 410. Henry Maiden, Dem, for Surveyor, Las about 150 majority. Charley Hope, Republican for Cor oner, bus about 00 majority. l.a I'ujrlld 1, (111 ll I > gives 00 majority for Barber Ma roon, Rep., is fleet I State Senator by i75 majority. Iho Republicans elect about half tlu ir county ticket, but lose both Assemblymen. U i-< oimln has unquestlonbly gone Republican, fleeting Fallows Statu Superintends at, and a good majority of both branelu so! the Legislature. Alex Mitchell, Dm .is elected to Congress in the Milwaukee District, by about d,50) majority. In iho in in o District two years ago, the Re publicans bad about Fid majority. John Mr.iiliaii, though ho carried this c untv, lost so heavily in Li Fayette, where bo expected at lca-t 50 ) majority, that iu all proba bility tho majority against biiu in the District will bo at least 5,000, Ollier -tales.

This is re girded as a severe rebuke to the Chica go Tablin', which bolted F .rew 11, and u-ed all its iiifiuenee for Wentworth.

Thiers with the Prussian leaders in front of Paris, on the basis of an armistice prop isod hv 1 ord tiiunvllle, are dissipated N '.otia t ms are interrupted and the dogs of war let loose again. According; to pres ent appearances, the war in Purnpc will continue hroiigh the winter. Ihspatoh es stale that on Mindav, the full, I'hiers r -ocived orders from Paris to break oil negotiations lor an armistice, and leave tiie royal headquarters. It is said the duse of rupture, after the Paris Cavern meat had signified its approval of the protocol agreed on hv I'hiers and Lis* march, was the refusal, wi the part ot lint Prussians, if the project to reviemal Paris and other besieged towns, and also because the Prussians accepted with re sene the scheme lor allowing Alsace and Lorraine to vota I >r members of the Con stituent Assembly, and insisted on guar mines lor a cession of territory. It seems as if the h reneli people were Cwomed to destruction, fir, after their terrible Jos-es and disasters, u look- to le iUijiOssilda fr them to resist the Prussians, the Provisional tboernuient dins not seem to secure earnest or uni ted support from the p evinces, and an archy is apparently impending over the nation, and all the horrors of a close *uegn, bombardment and starvation over Paris. —dilute Journal, (ten* million of coin is sold by 111" gov ernment on each Wednesday, and one ualiiwna of bonds purchased onj each TLarsday in November.

As in October, there seems to have been con' siderable apathy among Republicans, but the general result, so far as we can now estimate it, is better than we expected. In this Sute the Republicans, we think will be found to have held their own.

London, Nov. B, World's Special —A i number of letters from the \\ orhl’s eor- j respondents were received to-day, from which I extract the following: “Fearful distress and discontent pre vail in (ienuany, growing out of a pro longation of the war.

Kvervwhero there is desolation. Tens of thousands are in mourning. Prussia may yet greatly injure Franco, but she is so exhausted that she cannot conquer. Her King W iilium must goon under the same conditions as did the Kmperor after the battles of the 14th, lOth and 18th of August, when he dared not return to Paris without achieving success to offset his previous disaster William also socks success before daring to return to Her liii ; otherwise the Prussian power will collapse like the dreams of the Kufpcror.

Rkno, Nevada, Nov. s. —The Central Pacific passenger train, bound cast and duo here at 10 a in., arrived at Verdi, a sinal town eleven miles west of Reno, on lime, .fust s the train was stoning from the station, three masked men boarded the express car, and five more immediately came to their aid from the rear cars These five evidently came from the west on the train. Six stepped on the express ear, which they detached from the, main Inin, cutting the signal rope, eto. Two jumped on the engine, and, placing pistols to the engineer's heal, commanded him to move on, which he di'l. Two bnkmnen endeavored to keep the the masked men off the express ear. but pistols were placed at their heads, and they were compelled to re treat. The conductor rushed forward, hut their pistols stopped him. Finding a hatchet, he came forward ngain in time t see tl.o engine and express car sepa ted from the train, and flying down the track. The robbers then placed the fireman, express and mail messengers in the mail room ami locked them up. When within six miles of this city they stopped their train, broke open the ex press boxes and ro’ohed them of forty on- thousand six hundred dollars in gold coin. I.atcr investigation shews that they put the coin in old boot-tops and escaped to the mountains A double barrelled shot-gun and pick were left by the robbers at the quarry where they opened the boxes. All the telegraph wires were cut west of Reno. Two of the Western Union wires, however, were repaired by daylight, and business is not interrupted. Parties are searching the mountains and will probably be able to throw more light on this hold robbery during the day. The railroad wires are still down. Jlm. Itirhard-on mid Her Life.
