The present Copperhead incumbent.

E. Dickinson were the opposing Foi cough ass. Dickinson is the probate judge for san Nefcy county and his office is in a Renion. On election Day hundreds of foreigners voted in various Uon ties in. That District on naturalization papers purporting to have been issued by it Ido Dickinson which arc now discovered to be fraud Lont certificates.

Had it not been for Tho rain there would Havo been at least two thousand persons in attendance Froin the adjoining townships. Inclement As the Wenli Arwas it was a Joyful occasion. Us have peace. Official vote Lorain Oountjr-1868. Is flt. 1808. Jority to about one thousand. The i most those who voted in Olmsted democrats have gained one congressman Voorhees by a few votes but his seat will be contested. The republicans have a Large majority in Trio legislature and will elect a senator to Tako Tho place of Hendricks. In Nebraska Trio Republican majority is Over two thousand and Tho legislature is almost unanimously Republican the Senate Baing unanimous and Only five democrats elected to the House. The result is a glorious Triumph of republicanism and a fitting rebuke to the Dis organizing traitorous principles of the rebel democracy. Let us to up and doing prepared for the last great attack along the whole Lino which will on these papers have been arrested some of whom Havo not been in the country two years. The Register also charges that David Plizner the Copperhead of Ottawa county and ii Iio singly issued a false and Nattini ligation certificate to one whom he knew to be an alien and not entitled to be naturalized. Such Are Tho Means adopted by the copperheads to carry the election for Seymour and Blair and we doubt not if there fraudulent votes were looked up the Republican majority would be swelled to thirty thousand in Ohio. J. Ii. Mcardle been arrested result in Tho triumphant election of Grant and Colfax. D13mokajjzuo. The democracy Are utterly and hopelessly demoralized.

Tho matter w 1 be probed to the Bottom and the guilty parties will be dealt a Bombshell exploding in their Camp and the Way they Aru Down stairs is laughable to behold. The new York world Seymour s leading Organ is the in the Stampede. The second Day after Tho elec Tion when the returns showed that the last Hippo had vanished before the Republican majorities the world came in a double leaded Lender advising the democracy to drop Seymour and Blair and put somebody in nomination in whom the people have Confidence. This was telegraphed Over the land and created terror and alarm the leaders. Seymour hastened to notify tie committee in new York that he would if they thought Best and Blair in response to a serenade made the same proposition. This is the potable end Tiou in which the democracy Are now placed but set Peter cannot save them even if they make a new ticket to is the Abom Niblo principles they advocate that the people so earnestly condemn. Men no of Little account now. Measures Are what the voters Are looking to. Repudiation taxation in inflated and worthless currency nullification of Iho Laws Congress and consequent civil War taught in the Seymour and Blair with according to Law. Jollity. Tho republicans of Lyrin vented their enthusiasm Over the recent elections on Friday evening in n manner entirely to nil except Oil friends who were recently shouting Foi Seymour and Blair.
