ASHTABULA. OHIO. Friday Morning, Dec. 8th, 1876. Case's Institute will be held in the Arm ory Hall South Carolina is a law abiding State when it can't help it. . - The Democratic tidal wave drowned no body but Democrats. Case's Institute will continue ten day; closing with a concert. The South Carolina Legislature is Be- - publican in both branches. Gold is falling. fThe public pulse re- unnnda to a fair and honest count. . TWinners will hare a Rood chance to ' learn to read music at Case's Institute. The children's class of Case's Institute will meet at 3 p. m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Jefferson Daris has come home. His ap pearance is timely for helping aloDg a fair count. When a man says he is a gentleman he is laboring under the impression that no one knows it. The older singers of the city will hare a good chance to study some reany ciassuau music at Case's Institute. The Oorrr Local Newt, a "fearless ined- pendent" paper, according to the Conneaut- rille Courier, Has gone up. Our national bird soars aloft in triumph, and challenges admiration, unawed by frowns, threats and gnashing of teeth. The defeated candidates have commun ed together. Tilden and Hendricks re cently dined with Peter Cooper in Xew York. Mr. Case will use his own church music book "The Choice" with the adult class, and Bliss & Sankey's Sabbath-school book with thedrildren. The Journal says the election eicitement has caused several sudden deaths in Bos ton. The same Is true of several of the Southern States before election. Wade Hampton and Senator Gordon em phatically insist that all is at peace in Columbia. No doubt of it. That is just what the President intended there should be. It don't cost as much to attend Case's Institute as the old-fashioned "singing school" for the scholars don't have to buy books all it will cost them will be the tu ition. ' Tilden, who personally conducted the .' wkinlt aayit.Mi1 ll i TY1 ftttO M 11 n II T"Pii WUBigU 11 IV 11 tTuwt. " and eighty-four electoral votes, named the Speaker of the House of Representa tives. The Republicans have a plurality of 3 in the South Carolina Senate, but at the rate at which assassinations have recently been going on in that State, it will not take long to thin out that number of Republicans. The Democrats f the doubtful States have been somewhat surprised to find Wit nesses against them brought in in various ways gashed and mangled, -upon beds and stretchers which they had left for dead. The Tilden intriguers have evidently given up Florida and Louisiana as hope Jess, and are again concentrating their ef forts on South Carolina, with the hope of getting a leverage that may yet change the electoral vote. The President's course during tne pend ing troubles in the disputed States has been one eminently worthy of his position, and one which has extorted the admiration of people not very much in love with the President or his administration. In Mississippi the Democrats did the bulldozing and the counting both, and there is no doubt of their majority. It shows a remarkable change in a State which gave 30,000 majority for Grant and then 60,000 majority for Tilden. Randall and Cox were, from the with drawn! nf the othar candidates Savior and JEorrison pitted against eacn oiner lortne speakership in the democratic caucus on the evening of the 2d. Sammy was dis tanced by ten votes 68 to 73. for Randall. The demand for American beef in En- 'glish markets is reviving, and preparations are being made for large shipments from New York during the coming winter. American beef is found very valuable in the English markets for reducing the price .of the home article. - Congress assembled on Monday morning, and its first work was the selection of a Speaker. The Democrats voted en masse for Randall, and the Republicans for Gar field. Randall received 161 votes, and Garfield 83. The President's Message was presented on Tuesday. Thua far according to the N. Y. Times. the most accurate and reliable of the New York dailies the Democrats have 149 members elected to the 45th Congress, to 141 Republicans. There remains three to be elected in New Hampshire. The pros pect is, therefore, that parties will stand 145 to 149 a Democratic majority of 5. Colorado was welcomed into the Union under the impression that she was demo cratic. Now that she has gone back on that impression, it is gravely suggested in the Confederate House that she is not in the Union 1 It will be well enough, hereaf ter, in admitting new States, to have a promise to the effect that if it votes Re publican, the admission goes, for nothing. Gov. Bigler of Pennsylvania, though an earnest Tilden man, is reported to have said that he would not care for an election to the Presidency if it was brought about thrSfcgh violence and murder. And yet, we suppose the Governor can hardly be ig norant of the existence of such organiza tions as Ku Klux, White. Liners, rifle clubs and bulldozing, generally, and that Tilden and his servitors make no objection to them. The business of lyine down the existence of inhuman, cruelties, assassination and cold-blooded murder in various parts of the South, which have been carried on so actively, will require an increased earnest ness and unblushing hardihood now, since the sending of so "many gentlemen of both political parties to look into affairs in the bulldozed States. These gentlemen, Dem ocrats to some extent, as well as Republi cans, will have their versions of the start ling stories to tell. Mr. Hale, one of the gentlemen alluded to, has been' in Louis iana, and bears his own testimony in compiled list of nineteen murders commit ted in East Baton Rouge parish alone, within about a vear. The New York TVi&wn says that it has no doubt that the Democrats are trying to count Tilden in. Not merely fn the present election, but for forty years, "they have. en deavored to make up in the count "what they had failed to get in the vote. North and South it has been the same from the day of the Plaquenwipamin.in Jouisj. HYTuprflenry Clay from beingi frauds in New York, which made Hoffman Governor, and stole the electoral vote of New York State for Horatio Seymour. All this while they have -steadily shouted 'Fraud, fraud" against the Republicans. To-day they are scouring the country from Oregon to Vermont for the missing elector al vote, and meanwhile are trying to occu py the public attention by shouting "Fraud, fraud" in States which are prima facie Re- publican. The Grand Central Hotel, the largest in New York, has made another innovation, and "tumbled" its rates from f 4.00 to $2.50 and $3.00 per dav. es of -have of in of of in of lie to and ble For has Sound Opinion. The New York Evening iW says: We do not believe that Governor Hayes will accept the Presidency if it shall be secured for him by any questionable means. He has said that be would scorn to gain the office by a trick. We have no doubt that if it should be awarded to hira by a fraud in Louisiana or anywhere else, he would, without the loss of a day, make known his refusal to accept it. His conduct is in com fortable contrast with the revolutionary course of the Democrats. We have as lit tle doubt that Republicans are almost un animous in their agreement with Governor Hayes upon this subject. At all events, it is significant that no threats of violence or revolution come from Republicans. All such plans have a Democratic origin. We know there are Republicans who would give the Presidency to the Democrats ten time over rather than secure it for themselv.-s by unworthy methods, or in securing it in volve the country in strife and anarchy.. It is to be wished that'there were more signs of a like spirit of patriotic self-sacrifice among the Democrats. In an address to the President, Wade Hampton, Senator Gordon and other South Carolinians, assert that "there is not the remotest danger of disturbance of the peace by Democrats. If it occurs it will be at the instigation of Governor Chamberlain whose partizans have taken the only lives lost in the late exciting canvass in this State. Not one drop of blood has been shed in any political disturbance except by Re publicans." Every man who reads knows that the foregoing is a wholesale and unblushing fabrication. - Recently an officer in the Federal army, in his report, charged the infamous murder of a score of negroes at Ellerton, upon Hampton's Democratic rifle clubs, and as serted that the work of assassination was stopped only when he appeared upon the scene with soldiers who encountered the rifle clubs and compelled them to disperse. Reform appears to have no particular relish for the people, for they have suffer ed Tilden the head of that bureau to go under. The next President will be chosen by the constitutional electors, at the usual time and in the usual manner, as prescribed by law. The only question before the country after the first week in December, will be, how the result shall be verified and made public. The Constitution says the certifi cates of the votes of the electors of the sev eral States shall be opened by the President of the Senate, in the presence of the two branches of Congress, and 6hall then be counted. But the Democrats say the two branches cannot meet without rules to gov ern their action when together, and that if rules are not adopted to suit the House, that body will not meet in the manner de signated by the Constitution, and that thus the election may become void. In other words, if not given power to nullify the elec tion, that body will attempt to prevent the verification of the choice made by the elec tors, and assume the responsibility of choos ing a President in opposition to the one chosen in the constitutional manner. They threaten a revolution if, without regard to the votes he may have received, their candi date is not declared elected. THE ELECTORAL VOTE. Proposition of Carl Schurz and Others. Ex-Senators Carl Schurz and John B. Henderson, and other prominent men of this city have forwarded a letter to the President of the United States Senate, rel ative to the counting of the electoral vote, with the request that he lay it before the Senate. They say that the present condi tion of the country calls for some action which shall settle the political disquietude. The clause in the Constitution respecting the canvassing of the electoral vote is quoted and pronounced indefinite and lia ble to divers constructions. The attempt to canvass the vote in the joint session of Congress is deprecated as certain to raise partizan issues and develop into a strife which may prove most disastrous to the country. The letter then proposes as a remedy that the whole matter shall be transferred to the Supreme Court of the United States. It is urged that that is the only tribunal from which a fair and un par tizan decision, one which will satisfy the whole people, can be obtained. To effect this the letter DTODOses that the two Hous shall improve the three weeks preceding innstmas in iraming ana agreeing upon a Constitutional amendment, placing in the Supreme Court the duty of canvassing the electoral vote. The most of the State Leg islatures meet immediately after the holi days, when the amendment could be sub mitted, and the letter holds to the opinion that the amendment would be ratihed with out delay, so that it could be made a part the Constitution and apply to the pres ent election. - Both of the Presidential can didates, it is urged, would recognize the wisdom of this course, and both Republi can and Democratic Legislatures would ratify. The letter dwells at length on the wisdom of removing the important matter from a tribunal likely to . be affected by party strife. St. Louis, Dec. 3, 1876. The forty-fifth Congress will be close and hot, and those who hold seats in it, will have to earn their salary. Elegant leisure and lounging will not be compatible with a watchful and vigilant discharge of duty. Constahf attention will be required to watch and hold in check the opposite party. There will be no drawing of salaries earned while looking after the business of others, or the home affairs of self. Hewitt, Tilden's right bower, is for S. S. Cox for Speaker, and says he is sure of elec tion. On the other hand, the friends of Mr. Sayler, of Cincinnati, say that he will no trouble in being re-elected. Ran dall is down in New Orleans trying to count Tilden in, and deserves to have Hew itt's support for Speaker. The President is reported to be consider ably irritated at the statement made in the protest sent him by Wade Hampton, Sena tor Gordon and others, that not one drop blood has been shed in any political dis turbance except by Republicans, which he considers a direct contradiction and reflec tion upon his statement of facts contained his special message sent to Congress at the last session regarding the Hamburg OUR NEW YORK LETTER. Political—Thanksgiving—What we Have to be Thankful for—Business. POLITICAL. supposes that the desperate gang of Democratic politicians who, with Sammy Tilden at their head, have any idea giving up the contest for the possession the Federal spoils, they are mistaken. This veteran schemer began the campaign iniquity, he conducted it with fraud, and he intends to reap its fruits by the same means. He intends to contest it peaceably, provided he can win in that way, but rather than lose it, will resort to force. Rather than not have the control the Government, these desperadoes would inaugurate a new rebellion. The factory, known as Tilden's editorial bu reau; is as hard at work now as before the election. Its business now is to fill the "press with stories of Republican frauds, the object being to so impress the public mind with the idea that Hayes is not fairly elec ed, as to justify the Democratic House in refusing to recognize him, and to give color the rebellion they intend to inaugurate. The headquarters of the concern are here.' under Tilden's personal control, but they have branches in Charleston, Columbia. Tallahassee and New Orleans. The zeal ingenuity manifested would be admira were they employed in a better cause. instance one day they telegraph north from New Orleans, that Senator Sherman telegraphed to Hayes that the frauds 9, a are so apparent that he had better at once withdraw, and before this infamous lie is contradicted they will telegraph that ex governor Dennison of Ohio has telegraphed the same thing to Hayes, and all the Re publicans .present, have acknowledged that Louisiana voted for Tilden and that they are about to return. From Florida they telegraph similar statements, and the way they praise Wade Hampton, and the South Carolina rebels for moderation and high toned patriotism is astonishing. Now be it known that these telegrams and statements are concocted in New York, that there isn't a word of truth in them ; that Sam J. Til den revise every one of them, and that they all pass under his hand before they are re-telegraphed south to be scattered broadcast over the country. Of course he knows that they will be contradicted, but he knows also that many will never see the contradiction, and that a nasty impression will be left on the minds of those who do. It will have the effect to justify him in what he intends to do, to some extent; at least, it furnishes catch-words to put into the mouths of his followers, A very smart man is Samuel J. Tilden were he as hon est as he is smart he would be a very use ful man instead of the curse to the world he is. The Republicans of New York, not withstanding they are in a hopeless minor ity, are not at all frightened at the struggle thus forced upon them. They know that Hayes was fairly elected, and they pay no" attention whatever to the bluster that is showered upon them,' and the monied por tion of the Democracy are not as anxious for trouble as the place hunters are. In the event of trouble their business would suffer, first of all, and the Democratic mer chant has just as sensitive a pocket-nerve as the Republican. When the crisis comes you will see these gentlemen weaken, and possibiy they may wish that all along they had been with the party of law and order. THANKSGIVING is hardly the festival in New York that it is in New England. Of course the relig ious people observe it in the regular way church in the morning and a feast in the afternoon, but for many years it has been the favorite dav for target excursions for the military companies, and there are huu dreds of them. . The boys of the West side wards in the city can hardly be supposed to know that in their masked and gro tesque processions which it is their fun to get up at this time of the year, they follow an old and excellent custom. Christmas and all holidays in merrie England used to be ushered in with processions of masks and motley costumes, just such for their day as the ward school boys treated us to at Thanksgiving. The quiet cross-town neigh borhoods were roused by the music of limited band to see companies of harle quins and dominoes go by followed np with troops of continental-soldiers in calico uni forms, plantation negroes, and bodies of noble red men, got up in the most savage manner with vast expense of madder red and brick-dust, and flowing scalp-locks the whole procession so masked or whiten ed ani painted that their own mothers could not know them. It was a bit of fun that suited well the temper of the day, and was certainly better for th boys than screeching on horns, pelting cats or touch ing off toy cannon and air-guns, of a holi day. . An hour after, "they emerged in or dinary, dress, with faces scrubbed wonder fully clean, yet not so as to hide suspicious' traces of red and black about the roots of the hair. " WHAT WE HAVE TO BE THANKFUL FOR. Nobody means to suspend feelings or giv ing thanks till next year, and it isn't out of place to remind ourselves of some special occasion of feeling good the present year. There has been talk of war, which has been well checked by the strong hand on the reins of power. Ten years ago or more, this talk would have been followed by dan gerous action, and everyVroman who reads this may feel glad that her sons or brothers are spared to pursue peaceful courses, and the sword which has pierced many women'i hearts within the last decade is turned away from hers also; and, war or no war, we are not, it is iiKeiy, to leel the oppres sion and degradation which must have fol lowed the election of Tilden, the tool of all the ignorance and crime of the country. New York knows too well what Democratic rule means, and the hearty thank God, and the thrill of relief all over the city when the news of Hayes majority was re ceived, after the gloom of the Tilden ac counts, effaced even the depression caused by the heavy state of business for the time, It is true business has been bad in the city, and thousands of people are in destress, but business men have worried through somehow, and there has been no more suf fering than is usual. At least we have had no epidemics, the' health of the city has been good, and, altogether, if we can't be thankful that-, we have had a prosperous year we can be that it has been no worse, It was good to see the crowds at the depots of roads leading into New England. Ev ery tram was pacKea with people going home for their annual dinner, and many a large merchant left his gorgeous home on the avenue to sit down to the fat turkey and luscious pumpkin pie in the humble farm-house, from whence years ago, he came to the great city, a poor boy. Every New Englander goes home for his Thanks giving, if he never goes at any other time. Business on that day is suspended, except the rum-mills, and they are in full blast. the day being favorable to them, as the people, released from labor, have nothing to do but to spend the money they have earned. Every doggery has its raffle for turkeys the night before, at which thirty men pay ten cents each for the chance of winning a dollar turkey, the winner being required to spend at least the value of the turkey in treating the disappointed ones, an 1 the loser spending quite as much to drown their disappointment. The devil is ingenious, but it does seem as though his tricks were to thin to deceive anybody, who did not want to be deceived. It is a very grave question whether holidays are benefi cial, day of rest; the merchant, man of af fairs chafes under his enforced quietude, and the laborer unfits himelf by dissipation for a weeks work. Frequent holidays may all be well enough for the French and Span ish, but it don't do for the American. BUSINESS. Of course there is no business now, but it is reasonable to expect a revival between this and the holidays, and then, for f month or two, we expect lively times. Just as soon as it it is settled that Hayes is elected there will be a revival in earnest, and the good times we have been looking tor so long will be upon us. Louisiana will fix the matter, before this reaches you. PRICES OF LIVING. In the present state of business it is for- tnnotd that Ii'irinn I . . ,uu.m...in6 m ,frj cneap, Uoal IS only half of last year's pricts, and meats are way down. Thanksgiving turkeys sold for 12 cents per pound, chickens for 8 and and fruits and vegetables are as cheap as could be wished. Good beef can be had for 12 and 15 cents a pound, and every thing else in proportion, still beef at a cent pound is dear to the man who has not got the cent. The man who has work at no matter what wages, is comfortable, but there are so many out of work. An adver tisement for a book-keeper in a morning paper, recently, brought over a thousand applicants before ten o'clock. I have with in a week seen men of thirty, competent book-keepers, applying for positions as er rand "boys at 4.00 a week ; heaven send the revival of business that these hungry men may find something to do. piktro. I HAYES ELECTED! The bulletin in front of the Atlantic 4 ' Pacific telegraph office, at noon on Thurs- ! day, announces the fact that Hayes has the 185 electoral votes necessary to his ; election, and is, therefore, the constitution- ally elected President of the United States. . Much might be said of the efforts of the I Democrats to impede and defeat this re- , suit, but lacking time and space, it is enough to make the simple announcement. : There is glory enough in the thought that ! the government is still in the hands of its j friends, and that councils of rebeldom j have been defeated and brought to nought. Now where is that Democratic powder! The Brooklyn Horror. By the burning of the Brooklyn, N. Y., Theatre, on Tuesday night last, there was t a most frightful Jdestruction of life. The : bouse was filled with some 1,200persons, who on the announcement of fire became nanie stricken and lost all reason and self- : control. The result may be imagined. In the midst of the confusion and crowd, a floor fell, adding to the consternation and i difficulty of escape.'285 bodies, at last ac counts, had,been taken from the ruins, and it is estimated that not less than '350 per ished. The bodies'were found in promis cuous heaps where they had fallen upon one another. ; ! Intimidation, fraud and falsehood vio- j lence, whippings and assassinations fail Hayes and Wheeler have achieved a glori- , ous triumph, inasmuch as they have de feated the combined powers of darkness.
