This year the rtrjti-.ht Democratic Legislative ticket was elect .'d by a majority of over 3u0, while t'ne National Democratic ticket was only elect, d . by a majority of 80, showing clearly that local influences had much to do w ifh I Jemocratic success in this locality. What local influences may have affected the election in other portions of the State, if ... i , unable to answer. Elections iu North Carolina are uncertain m gen . rd results, and will otten deceive the wisost predictions, and set at naught the ea'culations of our most astute politicians. For instance, the Democratic loss in this Congressional district is 2,500 votes, when compared with the same vote in 1S0 If that loss had been kept up throughout the State, the Democrats would 'have been defeated by a handsome majority, and the electoral vote of the State given to Mr. Harrison instead ot Mr Cleveland, but for some reason yet iiiifx plain, d, the Democrats have not only held their own in the East, but have made ga ns over their vote in l-8G,and defeated hv a large majority. What is the matter? Has there been local iri'biences brought to tear that has brought about this result ' Mr Cleveland owes hisdefeat to a com bination of circumstances, principally among which is the lack of confidence iu his administration, growing out ot Lis short-comings on the civil service reform, and the agitation of the tariff question. Prom the Delaware river to the I acitic coast the Republican party was strength ened at every point by the tariff issue.

Many Democrats who voted for him four years ago, deserted him this year because of a failure to get the oiliees, there not being enough to go round after dividing with the Republicans. Then the Mugwumps went back on him because he turmd out some good Republicans and put in some bad Democrats. He lost the soldier influence because of his frequent veto of private pension 1 ills. His doubt ful attitude on the Fishe.iy Treaty, the SacVville letter, loaning the surplus to the banks without interest, all tended to lessen confidence in his administration, together with llareison's popularity, did the work.

Your corre spondent to-day interviewed the Governor of the State, a prominent politician of each party and also a prominent business man of each party. Each was questioned as to how the defeat of Cleveland was likely to effect this State, the South gener ally, and business. Governor Scales was interviewed at his residence. His Excellency said: "The greatest loss is the failure on the part of the South to have the tariff taxes reduced. The tariff drains the very life blood from our farmers an i business men generally, and with the defeat of Cleveland we see no prospect of relief. It will have this rfeet upon this State certainly. 1 am afiaid it will aiso postpone to au indefinite period 1 1 -! - aooutton .n the internal revenue sysi .a, which is regarded as so odious by Oil" people."

The duty of the Sout h is for the Democracy to stand together aud maintain its integrity aud supremacy This it wiu do. Li'TiiF.R Mansiiiv, Jackson, Miss.: "I believe that it will have a most injurious and depressing effect for two reasons: First, that it will disturb and leave in an umet'tled condition the social and politi cal relations of the two races in the South, which were largely set; led and quiet, aud will shako the confidence of our people in the growth and prosperity of our section; aii'lTsec-ond. that it will have a depressing effect on business in all lines. The belief in the minds of our people th.it the Re publicans will maintain an excessively high tariff cannot result seriously to us.' JuixiE E. C. Love, Tallahassee, Fla : "T think Cleveland's defeat a sad blow to the agricultural interests of the whole country, as prices of products are fixed by the free trade bu.-iness centres of England, while manufactured neeessaiies are held at lrgh prices by the rich combii ation., iu this (T)untry, who profit by a high protec tive tariff at the expense ot me mooring classes in all sections. No Republicans here are capable of appreciating the dif ference between Democratic and Republi can methods of administering the govern ment. Except those who expect to fill Federal offices in the gift or the licpubli can President there is no rejoicing over Harrison's success. Cleveland's defeat is gracefully accepted by the South, and its march toward success and right will be more determined."
