To our political readers ff both parlies it -will prove raleresling as JEadicating lie general line of ac'don upon jFflrch the republicans intend lo contort this Campaign, and especially those leadhg rspiib- Jicans -who look rather io General Grant than to Mr. Fenlon or Mr. Greelej as iierr aatbiul Conr«o Clnirod for simuy tlio Vend crncio Party. Tlie P«n/i3/lvaaia and Ohio Slate elections liavo bcoa carried by tho republicans by increased majoritiea. A glanco al tho returns ·n-uich wo publish this morning will satisfy tho intelligent reader as lo the gcueral rcsulla in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and that there are two points in tho explanation of these results upon which there can be no mistake. Th e first is that upon the platform of their national administration, and under the broad ensign of General Grant as their Presidcnlial candidate against all comers, the republicans arc waxing stronger and stronger; and the second point is that the democratic party, Bast and "West, is becoming weaker and weaker under the dead weight of the astounding abominations of Tammany Hall. This is the true explanation of these October October elections, and these are the causes which have operated and are operating over the length and breadth of the land to harmonize and strengthen, the republicans and to demoralize demoralize aad weaken the democracy. Other questions, local and personal, have here and there had some effect; but the universal aad overwhelming drawback to the democrats democrats has been the odious finan- ciering of Tammany, as the central embodiment in "the Columbian Order" of tbe democratic party, democratic principles and democratic aspirations. Heace we find the late republican minority of five thousand ia Philadelphia changed to a majority of eight thousand, and a late majority of one thousand ia Cincinnati enlarged to two thousand, in spite of disturbing local sida issues and mongrel third parties. An intelligent observer observer in "Wall street ramarkad iu our hearing on Tuesday last that "if taess elections iu Pennsylvania and Ohio go for the dsmocrata upon the heels of these Tammany disclosures and this Chicago fire we shall have a financial financial panic and revulsion, because the confidence confidence of banks, capitalists and all dealers in money in the public fiulh and ciedit will bs sapped, and repudiation will stare them in the face, as tbe inevitable consequence of the popular endorsement of the gigantic corruptions corruptions of the Tammany R'ng." This is tbe idea which covers the popular verlict in these October elections. "While the honest voter has been attracted to the republican ticket by the acceptable record of the present administration of our national government he has been repelled from the support of the democratic party, in many cases, by the scandalous record of the Tammany administration, administration, of our municipal attiirs. "What a change lias coma over Tammany and the democratic party since the "Ides of March!" The March election in New Hampshire had inspired the patty North, South, East and West with the delightful but delusive idea that this "Granite State" democratic victory, tins radical Jlash in the pan, was the beginning of a political revolution, destiaed to carry everything everything before it right on to the closs of the Presidential contest of 1372; but, unfortrj, nately, Jeff Divis, ''"down in~Aiabama,^' join- j '' bc Hacieipal ing ia these_dempcratio_rejoici3gs, internreted the results jn New Haiapsiire"as"opeiung the way to the final triumph of the 'lost cansej" with the overthrow of the whole Congressional system of Southern reconstruction. This, to the old Union party of the war, was like the roll of the drum, calling "ths boys ia blue" again to the front, and so, in tha April Connecticut Connecticut election, the tables were tarned, aad so emphatically that the Northern democratic leaders were convinced that it was worse than useless to fight or question any longer the issues of the war settled in the new amendments amendments io tbe constitution. The "new departure, departure, "then initiated by Mr. Tallandlgham in j Ohio, was rapidly adopted by the democratic conventions of the NorHx, from State to State; but It came too late to be of any service to the party for 1871 or 1872. The July riot in onr streeTs; in consequence consequence of the Orange procession in honor of "the Boyne "Water," and tbe question of eqtul rigais raised by our local authorities ta reference reference to that procession, created throughout the country a stroag excitement against the caring assumptions of Tammany Hall, which was by the republicans promptly used to the prejudice of the democratic party. At the same time this terrible war upon the oSIcial corruptions and spoliations of the Tammany measures ol municipal reform, wore well culcu- lulcd to strengthen tho party insidt- and outside outside of New VTorlc, but they camo loo Into to make any material impression upon thcifo October elections, and, we conjecture, too late oven for New York In November. la. 18G8 tho Tammany managers deliberately threw away the game of thu Presidential election election in oidcr to make sure of New York city and State, and to lay therein a solid political and financial foundation for the Presidency in 1872. Six months ago, lo all outward appearances, appearances, iu the absolute possession of city and State, and city cash and city credit, with boundless resources at their command, the Tammany managers held ia their hands the democratic trump carJs for the Presidential succession. Now, Tammany, as a political oligarchy, is demolished. Her prestige is gone, and her power lo buy up Legislatures and parly conventions is taken away. She is in disgrace, and cut off from her supplies; she is only In a condition to permit our November election in the State and tho city to go by default. Charged with election repeaters and with false counting counting of tho ballots to any extent desired, the "Ring" have now no incentive, if they still had the power, to indulge in these amusements. amusements. The neglect of tho "Ring" masters to get up a grand Tammany ratification of the Rochester Convention tells ths story. Demoralized, Demoralized, disorganized, cut up into cliques and factions and shorn of their Tammany supplies, supplies, the democrats of the city in tliis coming election will fall, on their State ticket, far behind behind their late crushing majorities, and the republicans, from all the indications of the day, including these October elections, will recover this fall the Empire Stale, State ticket j and Legislature. The argument and the results involved in these Pennsylvania aad OMo elections, in our judgment, settle this question. It will be remembered that in 1SGS, aft»r these October State elections, tbe democrats gave up tho Presidential bailie of November as lost, and the prospect is now as decisively against them for 1S72. It is remarkable in this connection connection that the veiy power, the central power of Tammany, upon which tley have mainly relisd for this coming Presidential contest, has proved the cause of their apparently hopeless collapse from Maine to California. But tho case is very simple. The democratic party of tbe tfnioa, sharing in the Honors and schemes of Taatsaay, musl share in her disgrace until some atonement is mads for her manifold sins and transgressions. Weighed in the balance and found wanting, the kingdom from Tammany Tammany has been taken away, and turned over to the Medes and Persians. In the midst of the impious fsast of Balshazsar, w.th his lords and concubines, there cams apoa his startled eyes that terrible handwriting on the wall. In- short, to all appearances, even. New York is lost to the democratic party tbrou~h tbe sliiptd excesses of Tanrniny, and the course is cleared, and fte way made easy for an extension extension of four years to Crsaeral Grant's careful and hones; administration.

Wo bclicvo wo speak Iho sentiments of tho great mass of our fellow citizens when wo Bay that the Chicago fire, in spile of all Iho loss and misery H lias created, partakes largely of tbo character of a blessing. To all outward sccminij nalions and men were growing in selfishness. The Gospel doctrine of charity seemed to bo forgotten. Nations and men lived lo themselves and for themselves. To many thinking men. it has for years seemed as if, in spite of our Christianity, tho external prosperity of which was undeniable, wo wero lapsing back into a species of heathen Paganism, Paganism, Might seemed to bo growing into right. No man seemed willing to admit that he was hia brother's keeper in any, even tho m ost modified, Qmse. Many indications encouraged tho belief that Christianity, like the religions which had gone before it, had become a system of dead dogmas, and that, with a wealth which the world had never known before, we were rapidly coming under tlio reign of universal selfishness. "We dare nolrsay that this view of modern society was not justified by facts. Suddenly, and as if by a lightning stroke, it has been shown that this view of modern society is false, and that in spite of all outward seeming the so-called Christian nations are Christian at the coie. This Chicago disaster, revealing, as it has revealed, revealed, the power of Christian doctrine and the goodness of human hearts, confirms and establishes the ancient lesson that the darkest cloud bas its silver lining and that the longest night is followed by tbe dawn. "We can for a moment forget the awful disaster in our joy because of the sympathy and practical charity which it has called forth. It is true that no such calamity has occurred occurred in modern times, and that the sympathy of the world has not, in many generations, been similarly tested. Wo are not unwilling to make this admission, but we do not feel that in making it we are at all detracting from the strength of our argument. The great fact remains remains that the occasion calling for it, the world's sympathy has gushed out as it never E-ushed out before. We cannot write in too flattering terms of the doings of tbe government. government. From the fiist the President and all his advisers acted with a promptitude and a fulness of liberality which left little to be desired. desired. Our great cities, one and all, have vied with each other ia affording relief for the suffsrsrs. There is no room for special praise where all have dons so well. Onr own cities have been equalled by the large towns of the New Dominion. Ottawa, Toronto, Quebec and Montreal have showa that brotherly love and the liberal outflow of charity are perfectly compatible with what are called national differences. differences. The citizens of the New Dominion feel and confess that the Chicago sufferers are not tbe less brothers and sisters that they live across the lines. In this case three thousand miles of ocean have not hindered London and ofllirocorfour thousand years ago, anifBctonco were gradually working her way into this mysterious mysterious chamber, and as if tho blessed antidote were yet to bo found.

It gratifies us much to know that oar suggestions ha-TM been" so "generally adopted and so promptly and vigorously acted upon. The various organizations of this city lave done so _well, and the Uheral% of our private citizens has been in so many cases so magnificently illustrated, that to mention names would be invidious. It is fair, wa think, to say that Christian charity, or humanity, humanity, or practical sympathy, or whatever -the reader chooses to call It, was never in the whole history of the world so grandly exhibited. exhibited. It Is also fair, we think, to say that tbis exhibition of gooiness justifies us in thinking more kindly and speaking more hopefully of our species. We rejoice rejoice greatly that Chicago will not be allowed to want for any gooil thing; but we rejoice still more that Christian men and women of all persuasions and shadjs of belief hav come so nobly forward to the assistance of their fellows.

Tho public situation which has existed in such a doubtful and hesitating manner in the Holy City since tho entry of the Italian army is about to bo brought to a crisis. King Victor Emmanuel has agaia asserted his monarchical authority within the municipal territory. The act has been accomplished in a manner which renders its perpetration extremely novel in the history of the royalties. His Majesty's officers have notified their intention of taking possession of the buildings and grounds belonging belonging to the Convent St. Andre", near the QuirinaL The tenements are required for the purpose of being altered into stables for tho royal stud, the horses of which are, as is known to Continental travellera, very numerous numerous and the finest in Italy. The Convent St Andre" is situated in the neighborhood of the American College in Rome--one of the noblest ecclesiastical seminaries at the Chi is- tian centre--and the King can hardly disturb the inmates of the one without annoyance to the students in the other. The knowledge of this fact caused the royal officers to hesitate in carrying out the will of the Ministers. The Pope recommended the inmates of the St. Andre" and of all the other city convents to stand firm and not to yield their right of property except in the presence of force. This solemn action prolonged the hesitation. This offended the revolutionary revolutionary party of the "reds." Its loaders inquired, "Why does the King stand at the door of the St. Andre" Convent after his cannon cannon have battered the walls of Rome ?" A very perfinent remark, and appropriate iu its place. The Italian monarchy is in a difficult position in Rome. Should the King attempt to eclipse Caligula in his care for his hoises he has the Supreme Pontiff, with many foreign foreign Catholic nationalities, in opposition in his path. Should he attempt to recede from his stable and pitchfork ccmp he has the revolution revolution behind him. How will he act ? It is extremely difficult to say. He will have to determine very sooa, for a second telegram telegram from Rome announces the arrival of Menotti Garibaldi in the city. Menotti is agitated nn3 depressed for a lime, but effect will only bo temporary. Indeed, think the disaster Ims boon largely already at tho slock boards and in circles. Tho first excitement and apprehension apprehension of tho worst naturally created disturbance. Speculators and stock jobbers, who aro always ready to take advantage such a state of tilings, seized the oppoi to fna the dame of excitement for purposes. In tbe course of a few farthest all will be quiet again, al this cause, and stocks and values will into Ihoir normal condition. We shall hear, probably, of Ihe dtfbris of the being cleared away, and Chicago rise again in business and splendor. therefore, we should do all we can to tho Chicago sufferers, it should be that there is no good reason for a resources of the country and the enterprise of the people of Chicago superior to this calamity. The flrst being nearly over, let hope inspire us the future. . -- __ PKAOTIOAL REMEF.-- Nearly all the and saw mills, brick-making machines olher machinery used for building have been destroyed in Chicago. relief toward rebuilding the Western metropolis might well be exercised in forwarding despatch all such machinery as wo suggested.

In time of excitement over any great dis astrous event there is always a tendency t exaggeration as to tae loss or consecraences It is so, doubtless, now in the case of the Chicago Chicago fire, and w^h_ppe_the generally estimated loss" iiay b3 gf eatfy exaggerated. Dreadfu enough are tae losses by this calamSy r wItnon over-estimating them. Though we have no reliable data to base a calculation upon, wo may by comparison approximate toe truth. Nor do we know yet--if, indeed, ws ever saall know--bow many precious lives were lost. The disaster has been so overwhelming and the destruction of property so great that the sacrifice of human life has not been thought of as much as It would have been under other circumstances. In fact, It must be said with regret that generally human life is regarded with more indifference than property. property. But our object just now is to look at the consequences of the fire in a financial point of view. The loss of property bas been variously estimated. Some have made it amount to three hundred millions of dollars. Almost all have regarded it ag a hundred millions at least. We have not before us a reliable estimate estimate of the taxable or assessed value of property in Chicago at tas time of tie fire, but it is said tbat the total valuation in 1370 ·was about two hundred and seventy-five millions. millions. This, of course, Included land as -well as buildings and personal property. Admitting Admitting an increase of twenty-five millions since the valuation was made--and that-would be very large--the total valus would be three hundred millions. Brooklyn has a fourth larger population than Chicago, yet the taxable taxable value of property there amounted to less than two hundred and fifty millions. The assessed valuation, of Chicago must have been much less. Allowing that the Ml marketable value is much greater than the assessed or taxable value, we still think that the estimate of three hundred millions is large enough for Chicago just before the fire, including land and personal property as well as buildings. The buildings might have been -worth iirice as macli as lie land. If-sre allow thirty millions for personal property and ninety millions for the land there would bo left for buildings a trandred and eighty millions--that is, estimating estimating the total valnation at three hundred millions. of cowse, is not dssteoTeeL" Supposing, Supposing, then, that one-fonrih of lie -»rtjol« property in bTrBdinss and personal c2ccisjja3 seen destroyed, tho total loss -would amount toSfty-Sve millions.
