The Republioans on Monday elected their State ticket by a small majority. Maratón, for Justice of the Supreme Coart, will have a inajority not far from 10,000. Cutoheon's majority wil] be somewhat less. The vote was the larjest ever cast in the State at a spring election. A careful review of the returnB show that Demócrata looked more to the result on local officers than to the State ticket. While we regret the defeat of Mr. Norria, we are in a measure consoled by the election of Hon. Geo. Huntington to the Judgeship of this District. Mr. Huntington's majority will be about 1,000 in the District. Indians like money better than land. It is handier to have around, and can be more easily turned into whisky and trinkets. For this reason they are always ready to barter for the filthy lucre, whether they Bell lands, ponies, gquaws or ohildren. A delegatien of Sioux Indiane is expected soon in Washington to negotiate for the sale of their right in the Black Hills to the Government. They have already heard of the desire to purchase these regions, and are reportad to have canvassed the question, and resolved upon disposing of their claims for $1,000,000. They are ëhrewd fellows, and have shown their pre-eminent qualifications for the real estáte business in demanding so large a a price for so wild and undeveloped a traot, because it is badly wanted by the Government.
