The resultof the election lust Tucsday in this county, wtille not pcrhaps exceedingly gratifying to republicana. Is far trom discouraging or dishearteuing. Mr. Tapie, for governor, for whom there was made a desperate effort, carried the county by less majority than Begole did two years ago, and the democrallo majority. has been nowhere ncreased. Th is, too in tho face of one of the most vigorous, determined and flerce cauipiilgns ever waed by a democratie committee. Tlie county democratie committee never has been more alive or more pushing than this year, and not a stone has been left uuturned, anywhere, to bring out the full yote and secure democratie slips on republican tickets. Whlle upon the other hand, the republican committee, with no funds to work with, or successful office holders to assess, have relied almost wholly upon the sound judgtnent of the people, uninfluenced by such argumenta, to return their verdict. The democratie ticket ia elected, to be sure, but by reduced majoritios. Capt. Allen, for congress, goes out of the county only 528 votes behind, igainst 710 votes behind two years ago. The great third party has not held its own. In an "off year," with 11 the democratie ald possible, its vote will not reach that of two years ago.
