Dill Reynolds had a fine old blooded
mare that had run Uiany a race and won
many a prize. At last they turned her
out to rest, and in course of time Bill
found that she was with foal.
Expecting nothing less than a "world
beater," a racer, Bill in due time
marched out to see the colt. One glance
sufficed. Instead of a short haired,!

"A slouchy, long eared mule colt, by
Moses 1" shrieked Bill, in wrath, and
left ; while the old marc, after one square
look at her progeny, gave a snort of
disgust, threw up her heels in a vicious
kick at her disgrace and made for the
bush. She was never seen afterwards,
and the mule was left to shift for itself.

Our unavoidable absence from town
yesterday prevented any comment being
made on the election returns. Suffice it
to say, that we have gained a great nad
gionous victory; that the thousands up
on thousands lolled up for Gen. Grant,
prove beyond even the shadow of the
suspicion of a doubt that he was the free,
glad, heartfelt choice of the people of
these United States. It proves that a
straight, clear, consistent record is worth
something to a man, and it settles for
ever the principle that there is no real
gain, a&d no use in this free and cnlight-
eued community, for any party to run
an expediency candidate with the sole
hopes of gaining votes . from the oppo
The N. Y. Tribune claims- that tho
Liberal defeat is owing to the corrupt use
of money, but that argument is so futile;
so utterly senseless, that Mr. Whitelaw
Reed will be the first man to deny that

months hence. You eannot buy the
whole people of the United States. No
party can. These majorities are so large,
so unanimous and so overwhelming that

of people being bought is idle, jdje va

Gen. Grant says, in subitaoce, that
he is glad the people of this country,
his country, have vindicated his charac
ter and tstified in the strongest possible
way the way a free country does ex
press its opinio--ti the fact that they
do not believe the calumnies circulated
against kim. And we soy that (Jen.
Grant stands to-day twenty per cent,
higher in the estimation of all honest,
sound ihinking men than he did at the
outset of this canvass. His patience,
his calm forbearance, under the vilest
abuse have won him hosts of friends,
It was oiwe said of a famous English
man, that, "he never said a foolish thing
and never did a wLe one." but we have
found a man who through a long and.
trying career ha not only never said a
foolish thing but has unmistakebly done
m-i-ny wise thing-, for the nation, for
himself and for his party, not the least
of which was to hold his tongue in the

Dr. Renner, wbese judgment on po
litical matters, is usually good, is con
siderably put out, by the election re
turns; but he i(ands his defeat with re
markable good grace. In his last issue
of the Stuats Zeitung, he says :
"There is much comfort in the idea
that the defeat of yesterday is not the
first one in history. The list of the
vanquished is precisely as long as that of
the victors We have plenty of com
pany of which we need not be ashanied.
Were not Caesar, Napoleon, Frederick
ihe Great and many others defeated?
Such a thing can happen in the "regu
lated families" among the greatest men,
most heroic armies and to the purest
patriots. "Whom the Lord loveth he
