The Kleetion In West Virginia.
Wheeling, Oct. 14. Indications are
that the republicans have reduced demo
cratic majorities in a number of counties,
but tlie democratic majority will be
not less than 8000. The greenbackers.
who claimed 25,000 in the slate did not'
poll half that. The republican candidate
for governor led ins ticket and beats the
democratic candidate in his own home.
The vote is very large.
10 P. M. Only a few counties in this
state have reported. No reports of any
conseqnence have been received from the
groat Kanawaha valley region, where the
greenback vote is principally located
The result of the vote in tbe state is
therefore the merest guesswork. If the
greenback vote in the state does not go
75,000, Jackson's (democrat) plurality for
governor will be about 10,000.
the democrats here are claiming the
state by from 12,000, to 15,000, and the
chairman of the republican committee
concedes it by 8000. In 187G the demo
cratic majority in the state was upward
of 14,000. and as returns from most ot the
counties thus far heard, show a reptibli
can gain in th majority this year, it is but
natural to sunDo&u it will fall consider

to the constitution are adopted by a large

to be worse than a mistake, mis nas
been an ooen secret for a lonir time past.
In the next breath tbe Sun says: Indiana

tbe south it says: The real position of

democrats, tie is not to be trusted lor
he has no political principles. He will
trade with the side which he thinks will
win. Virginia democrats know this and
republicans also know it. There ia" no
doubt that large sums of money are to be
sent into those states, especially in Flor- j
ida. where republicans are anxious to
secure a successor to Senator Jones, whose j
term expires next March. Agents have
already been sent to Florida and to North
Carolina. As to Virginia, the republicans

It is a clamorous, greedy place
Dolly and' her mother step out I
whoie hands are constantly reaching for
more, and where it seems that there is
not room enough or things enough for
the creatures He has mode. Like the
figures of a dream melt away stately
house and luxurious appointments.
J.t is the day before the auction; a
bleak morning that must be misery to it
self. Dolly is busy about some of tho
many things that have fallen to her to
do when she hears a well-known step in
the tiled hall and flics down stairs to
meet her lovor. Her dress is marred by
specks of dust, and the room is in disor
der so far, and chairs are in unusual
places, pictures and mirrors have slid
from the walls, and draperios have dis
appeared. He looks twice at the marble
slab before he ventures to let the edges
of his hat rest upon it. There is dust
there also. . But Dolly thinks of neither
dust nor disorder. "She is only con
scious that he is here, and comes for
ward with both hands extended to bim.
They are slim, dimpled hands, and her
cheeks and lips are abloom, and there is
a tender light in her gray eyes.
Handsome, loving Dolly has iever
dreamed how this meeting will end, for
she judges him after her own heart, and
it is both sincere and faithful. It is not
exactly words that give her tho key to
his feelings; it may be his manner, or
possibly something more suitable still;
but she has the key, holds it irresolute
for a moment, and then looks into that
mercenary organ he calls his heart, and
her own nearly breaks in doing so.
"It was only a question of money,"
she flings out bitterly; "you never loved
me at all ; you are a coward, a liar sir."
Poor Polly hardly knows her own
voice speaking to him so; and she is con
scions that her heart aches throngh it all.
They are the lost words he ever bears her
Two years have fled. Two seasons of

Wo left Dolly standing alono in tho dis
orderly drawing room with tears on her
face. She wiped the tears away, and did
nothing more tragic than go up stairs
and finish her work. After the sale ot
their earthly goods, they moved into a
little and rather shabby house in the
suburbs, and lived or existed, rather,
oh a pittance, a pittance, by the way,
that ere long would be exhausted.
All the world is open to pluck and en
terprise. It is'casy to forget disappoint
ments and failures, in new successes.
Dolly had tho intricacies of crewel
works, or something of a kindred nature,
to divert her thoughts. It appears that
it was not enough.
It came about in this way. They have
a rich neighbor; in fact his mansion
almost overshadowed their small home.
He is a gentleman of leisnre and means,
and possesses a mania for farming. Ho
squanders a good deal of nfoney per
annum on his thousand acres, but that
is of no consequence, "liaising poul
try is -the only part that pays," Dolly
heard him remark one day. This result
was that she schemed, planned and. cal
culated, until now wo behold her vic
tory . .
She is in love once more and with that
which will never play her false; This
time 'tis the sunshine, woods, flowers,
fair sky, and all the tender, loving ways
of nature, but most of all, the loving
One whose symbols only are these.
Mr. Faraham is their rich neighbor.
Any one would naturally remark that he

as to money, and kindhearted, the hypo
critical say, to a fault.

"I think Dolly's manner of getting

less right. Well dressed, and carrying a

They enter; and Mrs. Jelison sitting in

is not there; ; indeed she slips out 'of
another door as they enter, and dampness
not being suggestive of evil to her, sits
down on a bench in the garden.
What is she thinking of? Of Mr.
Farnham and her mother; and she has
shrewdly made np her mind that Mr.
Farnham means more than disinterested
friendship. In short, she has concluded
that there is to be a change in his family

loved you so long I thought yon must

ever so long since I first loved you! ; It

"In picturesque rags?" Dolly inter
rupts. , "No; but your dress was faded and
your little shoes were worn. I took it
all at a glance. But you stood here, and
all unconsciously assumed an attitude
that was neither an effort nor an act of
vanity; and the faded dress could not
rob it of its aristocratic pride. I looked
in your face and saw there courage, in
dependence, dignity and what were
worn shoes or faded gown? It was yon,
Dolly, I loved."
"Mother always said fine clothes were
requisite to a fine marriage."
"But she has made a mistake, if, Dol

And it is such a contented and happy
face the moon looks down upon that we
will venture to say that Dolly answered
The Be Lesseps Romance.
The history of M. de lessens' second
marriage is a curious. The lady who is
his wife was nearly twelve years at tbe
chateau of which sbe is now chatelaine,
staying on a visit. Her family name
was de Braga. She was of a French ori
gin, but English nationality, her father
having filled a post under the Briuh
government in the Mauritius. Mile, de
Braga was the perfection of tbe French
Creole type, and very romantic. She
had been in the habit of listening to the
accounts of the diplomatic and material
difficulties which M. de Lesseps over
came in Egypt, Paris, and London, and of
tbe courage and humanity he dis
played in assisting plague-stricken
Frenchmen when he was consul at Alex
andra. The relations sbe beard impres
sed her as the narrative of Othello's ad
ventures impressed Desdemona. Mile,
de Braga saw iu M. do Lesseps a hero of
modern times. - His courtliness, chival
rous manners and vivacity enchanted a
girl used to the Indolent planters or tbe
Isle of France. Sbe was at La Cbtsnaye
when all Europe was astir about the
achievement of the Suez enterprise.
Telegrams were arriving from tbe great
ones of the earth, accepting invitation
to tbe inaugural ceremony. The French
sovereign was on board a French war
ship' to lead a ll lee t, composed of vessels
of all nations, with heir-apparent and
heads of governments on board. Fes
tivity reigned at Chesnaye. Mile Braga
grew silent and solitary. Uiie day, in
tbe garden, she saw de Lessens walking
on a terrace She plucked a rose and
going up to him, begged of him for her
nase to wear it at dinner, lie aeKed
whether she did not mean it for his
son? No. It was for himself. Her host
explained tober that he was on the
wrong sido of 00, while she was not vet
1 9. Tbat did Dot matter. What his age
wag never occured to her. She had on
ly thought of hisgreatnens and goodness.
In short, lie was her beau ideal. How
was it possible for a man reared on the
sunny side of a Pyreneeau mountain
to reason down the feelings this confes
tension aroused? Time was given to
Mile, de Brnga to reflect, aud she was
made to ntiderstand tbat no frienship

mind after tbe bands bad been published.

"Pearls of Tnooglit."
A Gorman author has mode a collec
tion of mixed metaphors, which he calls
pearls of thought. Some of them are
worth quoting, if only as a warning to
high-flown orators not to allow their
magniloquence to fly away with them
altogether. "We will, cried an inspired
Domocrat, "burn all our ships, and with
every sail unfurled, steer boldly out into
the ocean of freedom !" Even that flight
is surpassed by an effort of Justice Min
ister Hye, who, in 1S4S, in a speech to
the Vienna students, impressively de
clared: "The chariot of the Revolution
is rolling along and gnashing its teeth as
it rolls." A pan-Germanist Mayor of a
Rhineland corporation rose still higher
in an address to the i.mperor. He said:
ao Austria, no Prussia, one only Ger
many, snch were the words the mouth of
your Imperial Majesty has always had in
. it -, -w , a . 1 1 , ,
ih eye. vr e nave ueara oi tna mourn
having an eye tooth, but never before of
the mouth s eye.
But there are even literary men who
cannot open their mouths "without i)ut
ting their foot in it." Professor Johan
nes Scherr is an example of such. In i
criticism on Lenau s lyrics he writes:
Out of the dark regions of philosophi
cal problems the poet suddenly lets
swarms of songs dive up carrying far
flashing pearls of thought in their
beaks. bongs and beaks are certainly
related to one another, but were never
seen in that incongruous connection be
fore. A German preacher, speaking of a
repentant girl, said: "She knelt in the
temple of her interior and prayed fer
vently," a real no india-rubber doll
could imitate. The German parliament
ary oratory of the present day affords
many examples oi metaphor mixture; but
two must suffice. Count Frankenbcrg
is the author or them. .- few
years ago he pointed out to his country
men tile necessity of "seizing the stream
of Time by the forelock;" and in tho last
session he told the Minister of War that
if he really thought the French were se
riously attached to peace, he had better
resign omce and "return to his natemal
oxen." The Count had no doubt the po
et's paterna rura in his mind at the
time. But none of these pearls of
thought and expression in Fatherland
surpass the speech of tbe immortal
Joseph Prudhomme on being presented
with a sword of honor by the company
he commanded in the National Guard of
France. "Gentlemen," said he, "this
sword is the brightest day of my life?

The graphic accounts given by your
correspondent, dated Hudson's bay, rel
ative to the Schwatka search, have true
points of value. ' In the first place they
confirm the report hitherto made as to the
fatoof the memorable Franklin expedi
tion, and in the second place show that
the last season has not materially dif
fered from previous seasons, and exhibit
nothing, therefore, but what is favorable
to the success of the American expedi
tion now in the Arctic waters. The lowest
temperature recorded by the Schwatka
party, as leported by your correspon
dent, was 71 degrees below zero a tem
perature not unusual in the experience
of other Arctic explorers. Dr. Kane, for
instance, encountered even a lower tem
ature ; so did Capt. Parry and several
Russian explorers, and, without serious
inconvenience, I have traveled at 70 be
low. I allude to this merely to counter
act a suggestion I have met that the
winter has been exceptionally severe, and
that the Jeannette was consequently in
exceptional danger. The truth is that
the Arctic seas . are uncertain, like all
others, but not in a general way more
perilous. The expedition of Sir John
Franklin stands altogether alone, and
and would long since have been forgot
ten bad it not been for the peculiarly
romantio circumstances attending the
fate of himself and crew. The expedition
was sent out in May, 1845, with two
ships, the Erebus and the Terror to ac
complish a northwest passage to the
Pacific ocean the last of many similar
attempts in the interest of commerce, and
certainly in that interest the last that will
ever be made. We know enough of its
history to show that the two vessels,
after passing through Baffin bay entered
Bartow strait, wintered at Beechy island,
sailed north through Wellington chan
nel nearly to latitude 77 degrees, thence
south toward the American coast (doubt
less in consequence of their meeting
impenetrable ice) with the evident
expectation of finding there along the
American shore, a passage from ocean to
ocean, similar to that which Nordeusjold
has recently found by the shore of Asia.
In its southerly course the Franklin
expedition reached latitude 70 degrees,
where, within a hundred miles, or in
deed perhaps less, of water that had been
previously navigated by Arctic explorers
in boats, such as Franklin himself, Dease
and Simpson, Back, Itae, Richardson and
others, the two bhips were beset in the
ice and there frozen fast at the close of
the season of 1846. From that time un
til the spring of 1848 the ice never broke
up, but they drifted south about twenty
miles, and in April, 1848, the vessels were
abandoned when about fifteen miles from
land, the crews reduced by death mean
while from 128 to 105, betaking them
selves to the ice, dragged the ships' boats
mounted on sleds, to King Willitm
Land, an island about two hundred miles
long, the coast line of which they fol
lowed, or the low lands of which they
crossed, with the expectation of reaching
finally at or about the mouth of Great
Fish or Back's river, near latitude 68 de
grees, as the evidence proves, the main
land of America. Then, it was their
evident purpose to ascend Back's river,
and then strike the outposts of the Hud
son's Bay company. The ' distance
that was traversed by the . party in
their retreat could have been as shown by
the records of the Schwatka expedition,
hardly more than two hundred and fifty
miles, and yet during tbat distance every
member of the party perished, and every
record of the voyage was blotted out
save a few buttons, spoons, coins, and
other relics easily identified scattered
along the shore or in possession of the
natives. The first of these relics were
found by Dr. Bae in 1853, and the Gov
ernment award of 10,000 was accorded
him for having solved the mystery. Dr.
liae's journey was made in the same gen
eral direction as that of Lieut.
Schwatka twenty-six years later, though
not over the same course. A great many
relics were found by Dr. Rae, which are
now in the British Museum; but Lady
Franklin, not content with the reports
that he made nor satisfied with the de
cisions reached, sent out the Fox, under
Capt. (now Admiral Sir Francis Leo
pold) McClintock, who found, in 1858,
tho only written record ever yet dis
covered. This record showed that Frank
lie died June 11, 1847, probably on ship
board, and thereafter the struggle lor
the release from tho "thick-ribbed ice"
devolved upon Capt. Crozier, who was
Franklin's second in command. As to
the fate of the expedition, a wide gap for
inquiry lay between the points reached
by Dr. Roe (from tho mainland of Amer
ica on the south) and by Capt. McClin
tock. who bad come around Dy narrow
Strait and thence descended from the
north through Victoria strait toward the
This extensive gap was somewhat filled
in by our countryman, Capt. Hail,
but it has now been completely covered
by the spirited efforts of Lieut. Schwat
ka and his resolute companions. This
expedition, although founded upon in
correct information at the outset, as
wonld appear by the evidence furnished
by your correspondent, has really per
formed an unparalled journey, as to time
and distance, in thehistory of .arctic
travel. The peculiar"' feature, or the
journey was that the party subsisted by
the way, obtaining abundant supplies ot
food, such as reindeer, musk oxen, etc
Although they did not obtain the records
or which they were in searcn,
they have secured most valu
able information, not only as concerns
the Franklin expedition, but geographi
cally. They have traversed regions en
tirely unknown, trusting to fortune for
their daily supplies, which'seem never to
have failed them during almost a year of
exposure through all the vicissitudes of a
rigorous climate. A singular feature of
their journey would appear to be that a

want, the former living in plenty. Per
haps this fact indicates a change of
climate. There may have been at that
particular period an unusual accumula
tion of ice in that quarter, where is gen
erally supposed to lie the pole of greatest
cold. It may be that the party had be
come reduced in strength by sickness
and over exposure; but -it does seem
strange, after reading the account of your
correspondent, that one hundred and
five men should, on comparatively so
short a march, have been swept out of
existence and left no trace by which the
history of their expedition can be read,
All who have taken an interest in this re
markable incident in the history of

Emperor Norton once remarked that
"All men are liars.'- He qualified it by
saying, "in California." The truth of
the Emperor's remark has boon verified
a thousand times over. The latest un
truth is brought to light through the
captain of a French bark lately arrived.
While in San Francisco he was told that
Oregon was a wild country; that he
could get no stores in Portland, and that
but few people lived here. By this
means the captain was induced to pur
chase his stores, in San'Franciaco suffi
cient to last him until reaching England,
Upon arriving here he was astonished to
find a prosperous city and . magnificent
country, and what was more he could
have purchased his stores here much
cheaper than ho did in San Francisco,
. filches And Contfort,
The story is familiar of the man and
his wife who, soon after marriage, fell to
talking of their future. "I want to be
rich," said he. : "I care nothing for
riches," was her reply. "All I wish is to
be comfortable." They had grown be
yond .middle age, when, calling up the
old conversation, the husband remarked
to a friend: "I got rich twenty years ago,
but my wife is not yet comfortable."
The truth of the story is realized every
day in this country, particularly in the
great cities, although it is not the hus
bands, but the wives, who with the ac
cumulation of wealth, grow comfortable.
It does not require a great deal of money
to make women comfortable, and tbey
bear narrow circumstances, even pinch
ing poverty, with a patience unknown to
men. They are far fonder of beauty and
luxury than we are, and they are often
very lavish in expenditure, usually be
cause they have had no financial instruc
tion; bnt they seldom love money for
money s sake, after the manner or men.
Women like money for what it will bring
them; men honor and worship money for
its mere possession.
JKiches and comfort, except in a ma
terial sense, are rarely united, in man.
Jlow many millionaires in this, the com
mercial metropolis of the Nation, feel, or
can feel, comfortable? They may have
everything that renders life desirable,
including health, domestic contentment,
sincere friendship, public confidence,
Erivate esteem things not purchasable
ut tbey are very likely to be haunted
by a dread ol loss, or a feverish nope oi
added gain; to bo possessed by rather
than to possess their wealth. Their in
vestments, old and new, make them un
easy; tbey cannot bear to have any capi
tal idle; they are as anxioua that every
thousand douars shonid draw interest
as if they needed the five or six per cent.

A great fortune is a great tyrant; it
drives and spares not. Many a rich man
looks back on the time wnen na
poor, and sighs to remember bow free
his mind then was from care, now mucu
he enjoyed the simplest pleasures. - But
he would not exchange his present for
his post any quicker than he would ex
change freedom for slavery, health for
disease, honor for infamy. He may con
fess that his vast property, toiled and
suffered for through years, worries and
hardens him; bnt he would not surren
der any portion of it more willingly
than he would surrender tbe
use of his right arm. It is
the malediction of superabundant
riches that while they harry their owner,
and may destroy his mental peace, he
clings to them as tenaciously as to life,
and is bitterly tormented by the smallest
fraction of their decrease. Tbe ordinary
rich man does not enjoy what he has so
much as he suffers from what he fails to
get. We have all heard of the New York
Croesus who declined to contribute to a
most worthy charity. The man who had
asked for his subscription expressed his
surprise. "I should be glad to do it,
was his excuse, "but really l can not
afford it. Why, at this moment I have
more than hair a million ot dollars m t
bank, and am not getting a cent of in
terest on it."
Most very rich men form a habit of
connting the interest on everything. !
When they build a hne house, or buy
books or pictures or furniture ; when
they lay out grounds, or travel, or make
a donation, they cannot help thinking
what the sum expended would have
brought in at a certain per cent. A very
wealthy manufacturer np town pnt up
not long ago, a palatial country seat,
and made it his home for eight months
in the year. He furnished it at great ex
pense, not because he cared for tbe rare
and dainty things thathiled tbe spacious
rooms, but because be imagined that
they wonld add to bis social conse
quence. He told a mend one day: It
is a splendid place; 1 admire it my sell,
but it makes me unhappy when I think
that six per cent, on its cost wonld give
me twelve thousand dollars a year, and
it yields no return at all. I like that
photograph in my library better than
any of those foreign paintings. It never
troubles me; I gave only thirty dollars
for it, frame and all it was a regular
bargain six per cent, on thirty dollars
wont hurt any man."
Money getting, simply for the sake of
getting it, unquestionably carries its
revenges, which tbe most sordid selfish
creature cannot wholly escape. No
sensible person depreciates money ; it
has an incalculable power of civilizing,
humanizing, refining, of doing good in
all directions. Like fire and passion, it
is an excellent servant, bnt a fearful
master. - No man in the way of accumu
lation, can be too careful of its domina
tion, whose approaches are stealthy and
insidious. At the beginning, we say we
want to be relieved of anxiety, to be
modestly independent; we do not wish
to be rich. A few, a - very few, when
independence has been attained, have
strength to pause in the pursuit of gold
and to turn their attention to their higher
needs. Others they are fewer still-to
on in search of wealth, and having
acquired it, employ it rationally and
liberally, helping those who need help;
encouraging art, literature, ' science.
strengthening, so far as they may, the
cause of humanity and freedom. Their
wealth blesses them - and those around
them; it ia comforting and comfortable.
This kind of wealth-getting ia beyond
the reach of many, as New Yorkers so
completely know. We have any number
of rich men. though most of them are
poor in spirit and bankrupt of sympathy.
They whose purses are filled with intel
ligence and compassion as well as gold,
are all the more appreciated and revered,
heedless capital. They have learned
that, while wealth is good, very good,
there are better things than it, and
among them is the understanding of the
use of wealth, which imparts and re
ceives comfort, N. Y. Times.
