Meettig of State Committee, Chairman Krutteehnichtt bas is seed a call for the, Democratic State Central Committee to mOa vene at Alexandria, on Tuesday, Nov, 9th. Mr. J. IL Williams is the member for Grant perish, Wins pprisb. As there are sever. al matters of importance for the committee to decide, and the quar antine regulations may prevent a quorum being present, these gen. tlemen should make it a point to attend, or see to having accredited proxies on hand. Tuesday, Nov. 2d, was the day for elections in the States of New York, Ohio. Iowa, Kentucky, Col orado, Nebraska, Massachusetts, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Vir ginia. Owing to the quarantine de lays our papers are five or six days old when they come to hand, and we have not been able to get any news as to the general results. The election of mayor in Greater New York is one in which much interest has been centered, and the death of Henry George, one of the four candidates, on the eve of the election, only serves to increase the interest, as there was no cer tainty as to were his strength would go on theday of election. Later-Michia n, Iowa, Nebras ka, Massachusetts and Pennsyl vania are claimed by the St. Louis Globe Democrat as having gone Bepublican, others doubtfuL In New York city Van Wyck, Tam many's candidate, is said to be elected beyond any controversy. There is a great deal of ignorant and foolish disuemsion indulged in of late as to the different types of fever that have prevailed in this and other States for the past two months. Charlatans and tadpole doctors have had full sway, and because a few cases of a very mild type of yellow feer bare prevailed in the cities along our Gulf coast, the entire country has been work ed up into a perfect spasm of un reasoning and foolish fear, by the doctors reporting dengue fever, ty phoid malaria, and all similar dis eases, as yellow fever. We this week publish ans interesting 'liag eosis by Dr. I. A. Veasie, show leg the distinction between dengue and yellow fever, which all should read as matter of information. ele peonik. per doe. 5 $Oit idme hairpi. fors I eather pares. large miue double sides i elk. atm e watered ribbon to yd to 1$ Ildle inch aide torehe lao , daler so I whiteabatter oolvaLlenlen a hoy, e y. taoweig. sood vale.~ oe ,o, a towel, good valae.

We have long saince quit the baud of doleful croakers who have lost all confidence in their fellows. It takes about all of our time to keep up with the overt asets of men and their actual trans gressions, without going into the prophecy business and trying to divine their intentions. We be lieve the average man intends to do right; and, believing this, we ac cord our fellow-citizens who com pose the State committee the in tention to act honestly and intelli gently. They were put there be cause they were thought to be trustworthy; and we believe they will prove to be so, despite your uncharitable estimate - adopting this or some other fair and satis factory method of selection. Who made you a judge of men's inten tions? Just bide your time and see bow far short you are of being a prophet in the land. The story of the rescue of Miss Cisneros from the Spanish prison in Cuba, by Carl Decker, the news paper correspondent, rivals the most thrilling story of fiction. This young (Cuban lady, a mere girl of 18, was arrestd as a spy and imprisoned in a guarded dun geon. Some two months ago Decker formed the daring resolve to rescue her, and, with the aid of two or three equally daring spirits, within two or three weeks time actually accomplished her escape, by filing out the iron bars of her window and assisting her on board of a ship bound for the United States, and she and her gallant de liverer are now in New York being, royally entertained and feted by an enthusiastic populace, who always admire bravery and daring, especi ally when there is a pretty girl in the case, to be rescued from vile tyranny.
