FISHER'S STORE.  THE BEST  The voting to-day lacks much of the usaal interest owing' to the wintry fltorm. The voting was not up to the mark of either l»i«t year or the year before at four .o'oioek this afternoon when we went to press. The probabilities are that there will be a lighter vote in the oonnty than last year, and perhaps a goo<l deal lighter. Should that prove to be true of thi» and other sectlona of Republican Western Ni-w York, it will serious'ly threaten tl<>pnl)-lican prospects for victory.  Whoso sits up to the mark of low twelve to-nigiits and listens attentively to the tick of the telegraph, will know whether to liuigh or cry himself to sleep. And a gooil u>any will do thift.

VanZdndt, in referring to the death of his very intimate friend. Gen. Mc-Glellan, said: " In a long conversation with Gen. McHlellan last summer, at Eichfleld Springs, he was speaking to me of Gen. Grant and saidi ' I knew Grant very well at West Point. Upon my appointment as commander of the army of the Potomac 1 left headquarters and went to Washington to confer with the president and with tlie secretary of war, and was absent more than it-w«^. I>uri»g t'hat-aibB left Galena and came to my headquarters, as he afterward informed m© for the purpose of asking me either for an appointment on my stuiT, or, failing in that, a contract to supply the army with certain necesf^aries out of which he could make a livelihood. He remained thcie several days awaiting my return, until he received a telegram from Senator Yatea, of Illinois, requesting him to returft_immediately,a8 he had. secured for him a commissiqst as captain of a company of Illinois soldiers. He left immediately without seeing nie, and we did not meet again who were the electors at largo, for a long time. If I had been at my headquarters I would have cheerfully given him an appointme^^^^^^^ and with his well-known loyalty and devotion to any one who befriended him, he would have adhered to my fortunes and would have gone down with me, and tlie world would never have known what a great soldier he was.'

It makes Bilious fever impossible. On the same grounds it makes Indigestion impossible and the blood pure., . " ■■ •  —For puré d rup at lowest pricergo to Lyndé & King's. ■  Probably tb© best known man in western New York, poseessed of the moat peculiar mania, is George A. Sheldon, ot Randolph, Cattaraugus oonnty, who has spent over $20.000 and the best energies of a lifetime In gathering odd and historloally noted vehicles, with a few rare pieces of household furnltar»», chief among which is the first piftno ever brooght Into Cattaraugus county, the German silver plate bearing the words: "Chas. J. Holden, Ist premintn, 1841 and 1842, New York."  The most highly prized of all Mr. Sheldon^s queer collection of dls mantled carriages is an old rockaway, whose birchen hubs are checked and rotted by the ravages of nearly half a century of contact with the elements. This vehicle derives its value from Its Intimate relation with the late Gov. Fenton, who, just before hie death, in calling up the recollections of the past, told the writer the following in regard to the old carriage which we were viewing:.  You have probably heard," eald Mr. Penton, " that I made it a rule in politics to ' drive forty miles rather than write a letter.' That idea came to me with that old carriage. Thirty-seven years ago this coming fall,before I had been honored by the people of this district,! was awakened one night about 2 o'clock by a rap at the door, and, on admitting my visitor, I found it to be no less a person than Gen. Lewis Cass, who was then the Democratic candidate for president. The night was moonlight, atid standing in front of my door was that old vehicle, then new and trim, in which my nocturnal visitor had driven from Dunkirk, forty miles away. I was then just entering politics, and it occurred to me that if the candidate for presi dent could drive forty: miles to do an errand that could be done by post, it would not be a bad policy for me to pursue. The idea possessed me so strongly that I went to Dunkirk and purchased the carriage, and in many of my subseipient campaigns It has kept me company through many a lonely drive."  '' You know," continued the ex-governor, in those days it was the popular thing to be a Democrat, but that year Martin Van buren was running on a third ticket, and Gen. Cass was very anxious ovet the result, go much so. In fact, that he Intimated to me that I could go to the court of St. James in the event of iiiy contributing to his success. The world knows that I did not go."  Another vehlcl»% or rather tt part of a vehicle, is the box of an old Broad way omnibus In which is posted an electoral ticket of I8C4. It is headed ♦'Electors—-McClellan and the Union,' follbwed by a woodcut of McClellau and the names of the then thirty-threo electors! Among the names is that of Oswald Ottendorfer, who last year led the Cleveland hosts to victory, and Wm. Kelley and Washington Hunt,  This  old box eo>t Mr. Sheldon |200, and he thought it cheap.  One of the stage coavííies in which the late Horace Greeley la alleged to have accomplished a portion of his overhind trip to California some years ago, the interior oí which covered with Wells, Fargo & Co's express labels and the names auil addresses pasiaengera, occupies a box stall in one of Mr. Sheldon's numeioub barns, and the old family carriage I of the late Judge Benjamin Chamberlain,founder of Chamberlain institute, with the sperm candles burned half way down and the whip staiuling fn the i>ocket, just as the old judge left it the last time he used it, is kept In a small shed built' on purpose for i», the bras» mountings being keptlvrighiiy polish  ed, while the wheels are falling to ])iece« from age.  The sulky in which Dexter }uade his i record of 2:40 is alflo among the oollec-lion, unlesB Mr. Sheldon has been Im-ptised upon, for he shows an old gig and Kives Its record.  Out of a collection of over 200 there is not one that Mr. Sheldon cannot tell t he history of, and in addition to thee© lie has the first Buckeye mowing ti'ftchine ever placed In antnal servicn, ' veu diffprent styles of horae rakes, f()ur old reapers, eight threshing nmehinep. or ¡mrts thereof, flfrorOr ^ewlng inachinec, dating hU àie way «•k to 1847, the latter being one of tlio Elias Howe, .Jr., machines.

Some call It Liver Complaint, Biliousness, etc. The Liver governs the system; If the Liver Is inactive, one may be Bilious, or have Fever and Ague, Headache, Malarial Fevers, Dlzjiness, etc. These may lead to worse troubles. This new remedy, Zopkza, is now tttkinjar the lead of all other remedies as a Livkr RkouI/Atoe. It seems to act in s remarkable way upon that organ -^it corrects the bile, the urine, and the blood. Friend, keep the LiVBtt healthy with ZO-PE-SA and other troubles are then corrected. Ask E. B. Hall for a 25o. sample.  The Prize Ring.  Portland, Oregon, Nov. 2.—A hard glove flght under the Marquis o; Queensbury rules took place here to day between Jack Dempsey, of New York, and Dave Campbell, the Oregon champion, and was won in the third round^ by Dempsey, who knocked Campbell out. A large crowd wit nessed the contest, and $30,000 changed hands. Fallowing this came a bare knuckle fight to the finish, under the rules of the London prize Ting, be tween Larry Sullivan, of Scranton Ptt,, and Tom Ward of Astoria. It was a bloody affray, in which seventy two rounds were fought- Sullivan threw up the sponge after one hour and forty minutes fighting.

Nkw York, Oct. 81.—Perdin«od Ward, smiling and perfeotly possessed, c%me into the crowdedeoovt room this morning to receive the sen« tenoe of the law for one of the many crimes which he committed In the world of flnanoe.  Gen. Tracy read a bill nt ex«eptt<m» to rulings of the coart imd asked for a new trial.  District Attorney Martine moved that sentence be pronounced.  Judge Barrett, In passing sentenoe, said: "Ward you have been oonvleted by an Intelligent emd oonselentlotEiB ury. You certainly had a perfectly fair trial. The Jury was oarefally selected and the coart oarefally gaard« ed all your rights. You were eonviet-ed beoanee you had no defense. The charges wese overwhelmingly pro'^eo. and you offered substantially no defense whatever to the facts. The only matter for conjecture is why the jury should iiave taken so long to arrive at a conclusion. If you had been entirely unknown the jury would not have left their seats. You have had tb»-benefit of every »«sistanoe {KMsIble. You were ably defended and an address was delivered in your behalf« whicli was 0« able and brilliant rs any I ever have heard. You were not convicted by popular clamor, bnt it ismore tbiui probable that the jury being eonsolen-tlous men delayed the verdlet^ fearing that popular clamor might have iu' fluenced them. On that suggestion alone can I explain why such a verdict was In the least delayed. I have nothing to say to yon farther. You have exhibited & sense of insensibility to your crimes which is astonishing, and you seem to forget the many good people whom you have brought to poverty and misery. You hafe done more to undermine confidence in commercial affairs than any man I have ever known of. Y'our habit 'was to carry on business by oommitting frauds, and in that way you utterly destroyed all confidence. Yet you have maintained the same insensibjility throughout the trial and have exhibited no sign of repentence. It wUl be 4dle for me to say anything to yon on the subject. I will only add the sen-tence of the laW, which is that you be oonlined at hard labor in the State prison for a period of ten years. "  Trial proven that honesty is the best policy in medicine aa well as in other things. Ayer's Sarsaparilla is a genuine preparation, an uequalleci blood purifler, decidedly superior to all others.  —The pain and tni ery snfTered by those who are alHloted with dyspepsia are indescriable. The distress of the body is equalled or surpassed by the confusion and tortures of the mind» thus making its victima suffer doubl» afQictlon. The.relief that is given by Hood's Sarsaparilla hM catisea thousands to be thankful for this great medicine. It dispels the causes of dyspepsia, and tones up the digestive organs.
