The Iowa election was as usual, rath
er one-Bided. The Republicans have
nearly 50,000 mnjority over the Demo
crats and about 30,000 over the Green
back, Temperance and Democrats com
bined. The election In Ohio on Tuesday
last resulted in the re-election of Qov.
Foster (Republican) by about 20,000 ma
jority. The Republicans also have a
majority on joint ballot, which secures
them the U. 8. Senator, which is to be
elected next winter.
- The goods used for mourning'decora
tlons have been sent from many of the
cities to the sufferers by the Michigan
fires. Just imagine a man wearing a
pair of black crape pants, with a black
calico overcoat, while his wife would
sport a suit of black underclothing, with
an oversuit of black cambric. That kind
of philanthropy is much like boiling eggs
and giving the soup to the hungry.
The railroads reaching the South
ern States are using great exertions to
attract emigration to that section of the
country. Several of the companies are
issuing circulars giving full information
regarding the country. Mr. Pope, Gen
eral Passenger Agent of the Railwaya of
Virginia and the Carolinas, is circulat
ing a pamphlet that gives full and com
plete information regarding the lands on
that line and its connections. Thousands
of copies have been distributed in Eu
rope, and the result is that foreign immi
gration is turning in that direction.
The senate met in special session on
Monday of last week. The Senators
from New York, and the successor of
Gen. Burnside from Rhode Island, were
not admitted till after the Senate was
organized. Therefor the democrats had
the majority and elected Mr. Bayard, of
Delaware, as President Pro tern. The
N. Y., and R. I., Senators were admitted
the next day. The two parties are now
a tie, without counting Davis and Ma
hone, both independents, and usually
Davis votes with vthe democrats and
Mahone with the republicans.
On Thursday, by a vote of 30 yeas to
34 nays, Hon. David Davis was elected
President pro. tern. thus replacing Mr.
Bayard. The committees of the senate
were, on motion, continue during the
present session.
It would have been better if by unan
imous consent, Mr. Davis had been put
' in that office, when the Senate organ

The President has sent a number of
nominations to the Senate Wednesday,
among which were the following : Wm.

New York, to be United States District
Judge for the Southern District of New
York, and several postmasters, includ

Operatives Burned In a Factory.
riiiLADELriiiA, October 12. Charles
H. Landenberger's mill, owned by Jos.
Harbey, at 1711 Randolph street, was
burned to-night. The fire broke out
about 0:45 o'clock. An officer noticed
that there seemed to be something pecu
liar about the electric lights and in anoth
er moment the three upper floors teem
ed to become suddenly a mass of smoke
and flames. The neighbors rushed to
the building and saw the operatives at
the windows on the third and fourth
floors. They called to the girls not to
jump, as a ladder would be brought, but
several of the girls sprang from the win
dows. Matlie Cowlan, Fred Krep,
George Dougherty, Henry Morgan, Jos.
Reynolds, and an unknown girl were
badly burned and were taken to St.
Mary's hospital, where their injuries
were pronounced dangerous, the patients
without exception having suffered in
ternally. Matilda Bohult,, Annie Mul
ler, Samuel Lapham, George R. Hutton,
Kate Shafer, Lizzie Franks, Annie
Brady, Michael Larkln aud an unknown
man were also Injured, but not so severe
ly. Joseph Glazier is missing. There
was a double stairway back and front
but no fife escapes. The loss is estima
ted at $70,000 ; insurance, $50,000. At
midnight the fire was under control.
The two girls at St. Mary's Hospital
are likely to die before morning. The
cries of the poor creatures in the build
ing when their escape was cut o(T was
heartrending. Most of them jumped to
the sidewalk, and a few escaped by the
elevator rope. There were some thirty
five persons in the building, of whom
twelve were females. The excitement
in the neighborhood is intense. It Is
believed there are some of the operatives
burled in the ruins.
The fire is supposed to have originated
from sparks from the electric light firing
a lot of material on the second floor.
One girl is reported to have been killed
outright by striking the iron steps, and
at least twenty of the employes are in
jured. It is believed that one half of
those injured will die.
The Blacksmith was Right,
' Mrs. Corliss was arrested at South
Acton, Mass., on a suspicion that she
had Btolen $400 ; but, as she was old and
highly respected, and the accuser was a
commonplace blacksmith, she was
promptly discharged. Much sympathy
with her was manifested, and, as for
the blacksmith, he was condemned as
as a reckless calumniator. There were
several dissenters from these views,
however, and they secretly Bet a watch
upon Mrs. Corliss, by means of which
she was caught taking the money from
a place in which she had hidden it.
. High Waters.
A western dispatch of Wednesday
laBt, says :
The WIsconslu river has been rising
rapidly during the past twenty-four
hours. At Wausau the water covers
the rail road track to the depth of four
or five feet. At Stephens' Point the
dykes have been ordered to be opened,
and if the rain does not soon cease fall
ing terrible results are feared. Consid
erable damage haB already been done.
The Black river has risen eight feet dur

flooding the country round about.
Explosion Near Bradford.
Bradford, Pa., October 13. A mag
azine containing three hundred pounds
of nltro-glycerlue, belonging to the Rob

night with terrible force, west of the city.
Two men were seen going towards the
magazine shortly before the explosion
and it 1b thought they were tampering
with the lock when the explosion occur

disclose anything of the men or the iron
Dropped Dead.
Lancaster, October 12. Ellas Herr,
aged 80 years and one of the best-known
farmers in Lancaster County, dropped
in one of his fields in Lime Valley,
Strasburg Township, yesterday after
noon. He had been helping his men at
corn-husking, and was carrying a bun
dle of "corn-fodder" to its proper place
when he was observed to fall. Those
who saw him fall ran to his assistance,
but life was extinct when they reached
him. His death was caused by apoplexy.
A Medical Experiment.
A man was paralyzed by a stoke of

of his friends reasoned that if earth

end of a lightning rod, it would fn the
same manner draw out the charge with
which they supposed him to be filled.
Therefore they dug a hole and covered
him up to the chin. He died in that

Bank of Commerce to Mrs. Garfield's credit
aud notice sent to her that she could draw

judicious for their reform.
tWA. woman living in a Boston apart

ItSTA trial over the ownership of a kit

verdict of " no cause of action."
Washington, D. C, Oct. 13, 1881.
The usual crowd that fills the galleries and
corridors of the Capital whon Congress assem
bles pressed for admission on the openlDg of
the special session of the Senate, hong before
18 o'clock every seat In the public gallery bad
an occupant and throngs on the outside were
still trying to get in. The House is generally
the attractive side and It Is rarely that the
dignified Senate presents such an animated ap
pearance. A previously announced debate on
some Important question, or a set speech by
Blaine, Conkllng, Voorhees, Thurinan or La
mar are the occasions which heretofore have
caused the crowd to flock in that direction.
But at this time there was a general expecta
tion that something lively or sensational would
occur. The evenly balanced condition of par
ties In the body rendered the events of the day
uncertain, and tho people of Washington are
so familiar with the wiles and plots and coun
terplots of politicians that they know a "cir
cus" is at all times possible under such cir
cumstances. It is all a iqnabble for power
and the ofllces. Senators Mahone and David
Davis have been objects of considerable Inter
est by reason of their peculiar position. Sena
tor Davis now really holds the balanced
power which formerly rested with Mahone,
and upon which ever side he elects to throw
his ponderous weight the scale is snre to turn.
It can not be a very agreeable position to occu
py In these times.
Statements are going out concerning Army
changes soon to be made and it is trne that
several retirements and promotions are already
booked. Gen. McDowell, Major-General, will
be one of the first officers to be retired. He is
over 63 years of age and would have been re
tired In place of Gen. Ord, had it not been lor
his personal relations with the late President
Gen. Terry, who Is a brigadier, will, In all
probability, be promoted to major general, to
till the vacancy caused by McDowell's retire'
ment. Gen. Terry is not a graduate of We6t
Point. His promotion would be a compliment
to the volunteer forces of the Army during the
late war. Quartormaster Gen. Meigs will ba
retired. Col. Rucker, of that department, who
is father-in-law to General Sheridan, will be
bis first successor, as the programme now runs,
but shortly after his appointment he will re
tire, to be succeeded by Col. Ingalls who Is the
friend of Ex-President Grant. This sueeests
a reference to the many changes In personal
fortunes wrought by Gulteau's fatal bullet.
Col. Rockwell, Gen. Garfield's faithful frlesd,
would have been made Quartermaster General
had the late President survived. But his pros
pects, with those of many others, Cabinet offi
cers Included, are now changed. It is alleged
that the papers for Col. Rockwell's promotion
were all made out In August, ready to present
for tho President's signature should an oppor
tune moment occnr, but Mr. Blaine so the
story goes vetoed the project. After Gen.
Garfield's death Mrs. Garfield wrote to Presi
dent Arthur on behalf of Col. Rockwell. About
the same time Gen. Grant also wrote, stating
that he had long desired and now recommend
ed the appointment of Col. Ingalls, and Ingalls
will be appointed. In the medical department
of the Army, Surgeon-General Barnes will be
retired and Col. Crane appointed to the place.
Medical purveyor Baxter has been seeking this
position for years and Presl dent Hayes desired
to appoint him. Gen. Garfield also had the
same purpose and did actually have the papers
mado out at one time.
Cabinet talk still prevails and It Is not Im
probable tha. by the time this reaches you the
new Cabinet will be announced. Secretary
Lincoln, It Is now positively stated, Is to re
main In charge of the War portfolio, and Fre
llnghuyson of New Jersey, to be Secretary of
State. Judge Folger of New York, has been
positively named for Secretary of the Treasury,
but he denies that the President has communi
cated with him on the subject. Mr. Conkllng,
who was here some days, has now returned to
New York, suffering from bis old malarial
troubles and looking, as he was, a sick man.
Ho bad several Interviews with the President
and It Is generally believed here that he could
have told who would constitute the new Cabi
net if he had pleased, as he doubtless was con
sulted concerning It. Gen. Grant Is understood
to be very bitter against the anil-stalwart ele
ment and to advocate a general slaughter.
Mr. Conkllng Is reported as equally bitter bnt
more politic. I give this current gossip for
what it Is worth, without undertaking to vouch
for any of it. A little time will bring tangible
developments, and "we shall see what we shall
see." One thing, however, may be set down as
settled, President Arthur Is a shrewd politician
and he starts out with a purpose to be discreet
and do his best.
