' I lie Banner Kepnblican Male' We publish below the official vote of twenty-eight counties of this State; the official majorities in nine others ; and the reported vote or majorities in sixteen others ; in all fifty-three of the sixty-two counties of the State. These not heard from are Barton, Ellsworth, Howard, Lincoln, Morris, Rice, Russell, Smith and Wallace, all except Howard and Morris, remote frontier counties, polling a small vote. All of these are good for a Republican majority. Thevote, as given below, foots up : For Grant, 53,035; for Greeley, 22,550; Majority for Grakt; 30,485. This will be increased at least two or three thousand by the counties yet to hear from,so that Gen. Grast's majority in Kan sas will be about 33,000. The only couaties that give Greeley a majority are Crawford and Cherokee, where the shysters who are living upon the "Land Ubguers " have persuaded the majority of. the people that Greeley's election would secure the lands they claim.

We have already stated that the proposed line of the Atchison and Solomon Valley Railroad is sixty-two miles shorter than any other from the Solomon and Republican valleys to the Missouri river. Let us see the effect of this. The fare from KanBas City or Leavenworth to Junction Ciiy, by the K. P. Road, is $7.10. From Junction City, to Concordia is sixty-five miles, which at the lowest estimate, five cents per mile, amounts to $3.25, making the rate by that route, from the Missouri to Concordia, $10 .35. The fare from Atchison to Waterville is $3.00. The distance from Watervile to to Concordia by the proposed line is about fifty-two miles, which at the same rate would make the fare $2.C0, or $7.00 from the Missouri to Concordia, via the A- & S. V. route, or $2,75 bss than the other. Again. Second class freight, from the Missouri to Junction Ciiy, is sixty one cents per hundred, ar.d at the same rate would be bout ninety cents to Concordia. From the Missouri to Waterville the rate on the same class of freights is forty two cents, and preserving the same proportion as in the other case, would be about sixty two to Concordia, a difference of twenty-eight tents per hundrad pounds in favor of the latter route. The same difference would be shown if any point in either valley were taken instead of Concordia. Inasmuch as the rates from Chicago, New York, and all eastern places are the same to all points on the Missouri river, this becomes an important item. And as the proposed lino will be a through line, while by the other a transfer would be required at Junction City, the saving in time will be more marked even.than the difference in cash, The citizens of Cloud and Mitchell counties, with these facts be fore them, can judge as well aa we, which 1in is most in harmocv with their inter ests. OVR KASTERX AOKXECTIOXS. As stated in another column there are fourteen truuk lines of railroad diverging from Chicago. We might add that nearly as many more radiate from St. Louis. From Atchison we will have direct connection with Chicago by the U. & St. Jo., the Bur lington route and the Chicago, Roek Island aud Pacific, each of which runs through cars to Chicago without change. Diverging from each of these lines, at Quincy, Burlington aud Rock Island, we strike a magnificent system of triink lines for all points of the compass, and can reach St. Paul, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Cincinnati or Louisville without change. At Achison we also have a direct connection with the Missouri Pacific and North Missouri lines for St Louis aud all points east, with the Atch ison and Nebraska for Lincoln and other places in Nebraska, with the Kansas City, St. Joe and Council Bluff's for Council Bluff, Omaha, Sioux City, and a!! way points, and also with Leavenworth and Kansas City by the Pacific Road, and with ail roads diverging from those two the Ft. Scott, Kansas Pacific and L , L. & G. Roads. At Atchison we alto make direct connection with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Road for Topeka, Emporia, WicheU and other places in the great Arkansas Valley. It will be seen at once that by the building of the Atchison and Solomon Valley Railroad we are iraine. diately placed in direct connection with one of the best railroad systems in the United States. Lightuiug in Marshall county last week struck a bara and killed three valuable horses and several heid of catt'a. THE BRIDGE AT ATCHISOV The bridge across the Missouri river at Atchison, when completed, will be one of the finest structures on the continent. The citizens of Cloud and Mitchell counties, when visiting Atchison, should not fail to call at the Company's office, No. 404, Commercial street, and see the beautiful drawings of the work as it will appear when completed. This bridge will be of incalculable advantage, not only to Atchison, but the people all along the lines of railway terminating a: that point. Nearly all the most perplexing and annoying delays incident to passenger auii freight transportation are by transfers, and with the bridge completed and the Road built, cars can be run from New York City to the forks of the Solomon without breaking bulk, and with only ordi nary'delays. A consummation devoutly to be wished. THE GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. The Atchison & Solomon Valley Rail road will be built, if the proposition now pending meet with favor at the hands of the people of the counties through which it is proposed to be built. If not, the necessities of the case will drive the road to some other route. No railroad company, without aid, will construct a road through a section of country that it must develop bejore the tariff of the road Kill yay. This is the golden opportunity. i.tij imlijj Hi .. j .... withstanding we have a railroad, we ere not yet by any means " ou: of the woods," and I know I speak the sntiia;nt of three-fourths of the people here, especially ef the business men, when I Siy that we want a direct, broad guage rsid to Atchison. Maty ot jour readers will doubtless r member that last year we voted f 1G0.000 in bonds for building the Kansas Central (narrow guage) road through Jackson county, on the following cor.ditiors : $00,000 when the roa.d was completed to Holton ; $50,000 when a branch was completed to Netawaka; and $50,000 when the read reached the west line of the county. The bonds are null and void unless the road is completed to Neta-wake by the 221 of this month, and, if my memory serves me, to the West line of the county three moa'h3 thereafter. The road was finished and the cars running to Holton on the 22d of Angus, as specified in the original contract ; but not a shovel full of earth has been removed on either branch north or west of this place, and at present there are no visible signs that anything farther will be done for some time to come. One thing can be set down as a fact, that the tax payers of Jackson county will not soon have to pay interest on the $50,000 bonds voted for the building of the Neta waka branch. There are already a great many agitating the propriety of working np a 4 foot 8 inch guas;e project across to Mascotah, and connecting there with Central Branch road, and have it completed by the time the great bridge is finished at Atchison. Then we will be on tl direct and through line to Chicago and the great Eastern cities. By a glance at the map you will observe that we can reach Atchison by a road across to Muscotah in thirty-3even miles, while the distance to Leavenworth, via Kansas Central, is fifty miles, making a saving of nineteen miles favor of the proposed new road to Atchison. This is quite an item in favor of the " Railroad Centre," and I shall be sur' prised if there is not an effort made to se cure the new road et a very early day. We must have it. Holton is a " broad guage '' town and wants something more substantial than a " narrow guage" road. Nearly all the trade of Holton now goes to Leavenworth, though a majority of our business men prefer to trade at Atchison, where they have been buying goods for years, ihey declare they like the Atchison merchants better than any other they have dea'twith in Kansas, but the facilities at present for goods from Leavenworth are su perior to Atchison, hence the latter gets little of the vast trade from this place, and need not expect any until they push a road out in this direction and offer facilities equal if not snperior to those now furnished us at Leavenworth. There has been considerable amusement here lately, since some of their worst ece mies have been initiated into the " Holton Ring." Since taking them in the new mem bers are as quiet as turtle dove3 and will go " snux " hereafter with the old members on the stealing business. You need not be surprised to learn that the " ring " steals everything in the State. But I must close. I am not a member of the Rix. George D. Searles, a member of the Conaty Board, voted for Woodhull and Douglas for President and Vice President. He had it all his own way as far as heard from. Biiiy Rj4eli, of Vorhes & Ru33ell, Buckeye tore, know3 something else besides how to tell goods. He is one of the best young workers ia the Republican par:y- While there is no discount ou their Republicanism, they are discounting some of the older firms in the amount of the goods they sell. Apropos of how the Democrats regard their defeat, the following is the best we have heard. S.D.Smith, a Democrat who live3 near Seneca, met a neighbor next morning after election and asked how things had gone. Being told that Liberalism was wiped ont, he replied : "I knew it would be so. Old Horace Greeley has been trying for thirty years to destroy the Democratic parry, and now the d d old hound has got away with it at last." It is very sad. Let us shed a tear or two, or perhaps three, over its melancholy fate. O. K. republic cersTr. Belleville, Republic Co., Ks.. t Nov. 8, 1872.

Special Correspondence of The Champion. Holtos, Kas., Nov. 9, 1372. It has been some time sicne I last saw any. thins in the " leading paper of Northern Kansas " from this place, the liveliest and. most wide-avake town in the interior. I have waited patiently for some one more ac. customed than I am to write, but so far I have waited in vain, and have concluded that I would take np the il old gray goose " and give you an occasional item, from time to time, from this locality, thinking there may be something of interest now and then to the numerous readers of the " old relia ble " Champios. You probably ere this have heard of the result of the election in our countv. It was one of the most quiet elections I have wit. nessed here for the past ten years, and the principal excitement was in regard to the county offices, there being no less than four staunch Republicans re-elected by majorities ranging from 99 to 421- The Democrats expected, by uniting with the Liberals, to carry everything in Jackson county this fall bv 300 majority ; but on the contrary the result shows that the Republicans never be fore polled so large a vote. Our two papers have had a lively race during the canvass The Express, of course, coming out at a 2:40 gait ahead of its Chicago " patent outside " rival, the Xcws. Holton has grown more this season than any previous season in my recollection. A large number of buildings of all kinds have been built, one, at kast, the fine two story brick front of H. P. Biihop, costing some $0,000 C: S3 000. It is the finest business house in Jackson countv, and makes a hand some, appearance fronting east on the Public Square. Business here the past few months has been pretty good, but money like some fellows we occasionally see perambulating the streets is tijhl. Most of the merchants and business men think they begin te see money more plentiful since election than it has feeen for some time before, and the Liberals anticipate a Radical change in financial affairs at a very early day. Since the completion of the Narrow Guage Railway to this place, we can get to the outside world a good deal easier than before, when we had to f!age it across the prai. ries to Netawaka. We are now only fonr hours ride from Leavenworth, and have two FROM SENECA.

The issue was raised at every polling place against Scofield and DeForest that they were Pomeroy men. In the Eighth District Republican tickets were printed and circulated with Peckham's name substituted for Scofields by the honest (?) Liberals. And yet they are the party of purity and par excellence opposed to fraud ! Many of them traded off their whole tickets, with the exception of representative, to get a vote for Peckham. All manner of lies were resorted to without stint, among others that Scofield was a herd law man ; that he had been in the rebel army ; that he was bankrspt ; that he had subsidized Republicans with large sums of money, your correspondent among the number, to electioneer for him ; that ha was buying rotes with money and whisky. The foregoing are only samples of Liberal electioneering, but it was no go. He ran behind in Rock Creek township, which generally Totes straigbt, but the Germans of Riehmond and Nemaha townhips more than made good the loss. Scofield will be a candidate for the Speakership, and if he shows as good tact in that fight as he has in securing his election, he will be a hard man to buck against. Seneca precinct, Richmond township, is the lower township of Nemaha county. It gave Grant 123 majority, one more than Rock Creek (Sabetha), heretofore the strong hold of Republicanism. But Neuchattell takes tie horns for doing things straight. It cast 64 votes, 63 for Grant and one for Greeley. This is a French and Swiss set tlement. The Liberals sent about half a dozen men there on election day, to work for their ticket, among them the candidate for County Superintendent, who got seven votes. Who says our foreign population don't know how to vote intelligently ? Clear Creek is the on!j township ia the county that gave Greeley a majority. He got away wilh three.
