THE OHIO ELECTION.
The election in Ohio last Tuesday was for
state aud county officers, for thirty seven
senators and 110 representatives of the gen
eral assembly, and upon four amendments
to the constitution, changing state elections
from October to November, and one chang
ing the term of office for township trustees.
Gov. Hoadiy is the democratic candidate for
re-election, J. B. Foraker the republican
candidate, and Rev. A. B. Leonard the
prohibition candidate for governor. There
are 2017 voting precincts in tbe state.
Comparison will be u a le with the vote for
governor in 1883, wheu Gov. Hoadiy was
elected by a plurality of 1 -2.5-29 over Foraker.
At the ciose of tins report returns had been
received from 776 of the 2017 voting pre
cincts in the state, which gave F Taker,
republican, a total vite of 143,972, Hoadiy,
democrat, 132,197, Laniard, prohibitionist,
9913: net republican gain, 12,924. The re
maiuiug precincts iu 1883 gave a democratic
majority of 10,912. At Columbus the re
publicans are jubilant with bands aud I mi
ni es over election news. The democrats
are corresponding quiet, and are receiving
the result with good grace. Chairman
Powell of the democratic committee con
cedes the election of the republican state
ticket by from 15,000 to 20,000. and thinks
they have carried both branches of the leg
islature. Gov. Hoadiy things the demo
crats may have saved the senate. The re
publican executive committee claim the el
ection of Foraker by from 15,000 to 18,000
plurality, though complete returns may
make it more. They have information from
all tbe doubtful counties and have elected
their representatives. They claim a major
ity ou joint ballot outside of Hamilton
county. Allen O. Myers is thought to be
defeated for the legislature in franklin
county by a small majority. The Counnei-ciai-Oazette
says: " The republicans made
the right against the Leonard party hot and
severe, aud d ew the lines. The democrats
coddled the fraud, and the result is he got
many democratic votes. Gov. Hoadiy
daiuag d himself seriously by his endorse -mint
of Alien O Myers for the legislature.

indications as we write are that the scoun
drels have doue their desperate dirty work
iu vain, that the republicans have ihe legis
lature outside of Hamilton county, aud that
the) have carried the county. If they have
doue so the people ot this cit may rever
ently thank Cod aud take courage. Toe
streets at 1 o'clock this morning were fuil
of republican!!, who were shouting over the
splendid victory won iu Oaio. The election
of Foraker is couce led, and there is a feel

ticket has gone through also.

I he Mark Lane Express, in its review of
the British grain trade during the past week,
says: "Bad weather has materially affected
samples of new wheat, and has caused a de
mand for old red, which has advanced six
pence. Sales of English wheat during the
week were 74,264 quarters, at 30s 3d,
against 73,368, at 32s 2d duriug the corre
sponding week last year. The market for
foreign wheats coutinues to strengthen.
Flour is more difficult to purchase, and six
pence to one shilling dearer. American oats
are firmer. The supply of wheat cargoes is
restricted. Prices are six pence higher.
Seven cargoes arrived, four were sold, four
withdrawn, aud three remained, including
of one California. The Market to-day was
quiet and firm. English wheats were six
reuse dearer. Foreign were six pence to
one shilling dearer. Flour was steady and
occisionly six pence higher. Beans were
fully one shilling dearer. Corn was firm.
Barley qniet an 1 oats steady."

that th : figures would reach $500,000, and
mi.ht possibly reach $750,000. Agents of

question as to the time of issue of the first
volume has been raised. It is positively
stated that it will be out early in December.
