So far asheatri from, Jim Gusonoiuy has not received a single vote for Delegate. His silly and impudent addros.5 to tho voters, and his more silly and illiterate le ters seem to hav3 done liiui no sjood. We have a specimen of the lattei which we think wo must print in oui next. It is a literary curiosity. Badly Sold. Clint. Thompson probably feels about as bad over the rosult ox tae election as any man tho Territory. Without cause! turned on his best threw away hi3 money in foolish oets, made ridic ulous assertions that he could not prove and lost ca3te jverywhere. He is not a politician, and the sooner he the fact the bettor for him WlIERE 13 IT Poor Dooner by opposing he would havo a future. Wheiv is it to Certainly not in Arizona, for here ho is as thoroughly used. up and useless a3 a last year's oird nest. No Wondek. Tho excellent Van Alstyno has been heard to say it is no wonder a party led by the Ourys and Dufneld has been beaten. Wnat has he to say of that party's putting for ward Dooner, chieliy notorious as un successful blackmailer, as one of its orators and a presiding oiiicer at one. of its meetings Thanksgiving. "We, to-day, publish President Grant's Proclamation on this subject. Governor Bafford should at onco supplement it with another. No people have greater cause for intense gratitude than those of Arizona. On Tuesday last they rid themselves of the threatened rule of a bad a body of men as ever aspired to position. The incursions of the Apaches are frequent and terrible, but the advent! to power of the crew of Tucson bogud Democracy, who fought tile People' ticket Avitu such desperate zeal, would have been a greater because constant, continuous calamity. The people of Aiizona have a right lo rejoice und bo excedding glad, and should judiciouriy tender thanks to Power that rules U3 alL EorT. Columbus Delano, late Com missioner oi internal xveveiiue, ua entered upon his duties as 6eoretaiy.ofj tho interior vice Gen. Cox resigned.

Wo trust our friends in the several towns and settlements through out the TeiVitory will not be backward in sending us iteni3 ot news, such as current improvements, arrivals of immigiants, births, marriages, doaths, unusual changes in the weather, pub lie meetings, Indian depredations jyvhrn they occur, etc. They will helre make our naper interesting and) ndvortiso each locality far and wide, for the circulation of the Citizen La not by any mean3, even now, coufin-1 od vathin the borders of Aiizona, andj is constantly increasing, Letters received heretofore which did not appear wore not rejected for want of merit, but for causes then explained which happily do not now exist. 13- BBIV, He whfe ril-' and Jhas generally done right, but in the I In Tucson, the total vote cat at the ol-ction on Tuesday last was 404 or i wiiieii AicO'ormiCK receiveti 'M6 ana UBrady 1-i') votes, giving McG'onnick a majority of 104.

So far as hoanl lias a majority of 200 hi the county, which is quite a 5 good a3 expected in view of the. small vote cast, the total in the county beiug about 700. (7amp Goodwin not heard from. Yavapai county will not be far from a tie, and tho Colorado will givo Mc-Cormick 2.30 majority. Ott, tho People's candidate for sher iff of this county, and all the People's uommoes, are successful by 200 majority. In view of the desperate efforts made by the opposition, their falsehoods, slanders and tricks, these results are highly gratifying and furnish cau3o for general rejoicing. They prove jthat the People are still firm for the right, and are not to be hoodwinked or misled by any faction, and that treach ery, deceit and personal abuse aro not accepted as convincing argument. A Public Blessing Tho election of H. Ott Sheriff of Pi ma county is a positive public blessing intensified by contrast. It is a credit to the sound sense of the people, and will bo gieatly to their profit. "We have rarely met a man who combines more good qualities as an officer and entleman. Campaigns like tho one jjust closed, try the mettlo and trust worthiness of men, and ilr. Ott has KJOiue our. oi tne contest victorious in ill respects. His popularity and fit ness have been unmistakeably evinced by the votes of the people. "While we leartily congratulate Mr. Ott on his success, -we no less sincerely congratu late the People of Pima county on se- urinjr his services as The Reason Why We hear that Oury ft Co. wonder vhy the civil and oven the military officers Lit such an interest in the re cent contest itnd were so united in the wish for ilcGormick's re election. oleferenee to the infamous address put forth by Dooner, Bonnet and oth- rs of the so-called Democratic county may furnish thorn some light upon the matter. In our next, wo shall review this document ventilate its statements w'o intended to ha ve done heretofore1. It is said be from the pen of Sylvester Mowry ibat whoever may have been its author, its all ccious assertions are such as to wan ant its condemnation by ovcry true trieud or Arizona. Illegal Votins; As we presumed would be the case, the men who were so loud hi their Pharisaical bawling against illegal voting, were the only one3 who endeavored to secure fraudulent votes on Tuesday last. In more than ono instance they were caught hi the very fact of voting and So- Inoriana, and they probably succeeded in palming off some such upon the judges as legal voters. For a party orotessinc a most earnest desire ior a pure election, they resorted to unusu ally low tricks, at which wo are not surprised. We knew from tho start tnat the cry ot traud. was simply intended as a shield for their own well concocted villanies. PERSONAL. Toll the bell, A crowd of damned () Bonis Float down the Styjjiaa river. (Poltieaily.) P. B. Brady heads the floating canvass just closed ho proved' himself i -i. t. too weak to always do ngat. By -lis- cennur to ana acting upuxi uue iiuviu-o, of pretended instead of real friends, ho has brought political if n'ob'finan-f cial ruin upon himself, and has few sympathizers. That prince of dead beats, and slanderers, and carpet baggers, Sylvester Mow! is more likely to bring up in the club rooms of Pacific 3treet, San Francisco, than tho Pacific Club of that city. 'Miserable and despised Sylvester. If Granville Oury has not yet discovered the place tho people of Pima county desire hiin to occupy, he has, at least, ascertained the one they will not permit him to P. W. Dooner has probably a glinvpso of that future" which he said awaited him -if ho played the treacherous part ho has, instead of continuing as a worthless if nota damaging simpleton. It may ass'uage his grief some to be assured that we aired nothing for his idiotically vicious abuse, and aro now enjoying healthy laughs at hi3 calamity. Viewed merely as a -rare compound of fool and knave, lie is admirable. Tho notorious M. B. Duffield will probably- emigrate, or remain hero within legal bounds and fouh. The Spanish-French eavesdropper and servile toady and tale bearer, whom the people have condemned as unfit and unworthy to be Eecorder, will have time for meditation and find room for improvement. McClatchy and other sufferers financially may have gained aa insight into that lesson wiiica experience teaches, if they have lost thoir ourren cy. They are referred to what th Scripture and Ben Franklin say, for consolation. Yro havo sympathy for those who for some weeks have been apologizing for the coumanv thev were in, and trust the lessuii 'they have just been tausrht will be of value to them here after, and that they may live to real ize its fruits an hundred fold.

It i3 rare that we exult over a foe so badly beaten, but in long experience in politics, we never encountered such a thoroughly kid opposition. It has had for its leaders murderers, those banished from other Territories by popular and just fury, itinerant vagabonds and bummers that in well regulated comnninities would have been arrested as vicious vagrants, mi- paralleled liars, They have hesitated at circulating nothing that depraved minds could conceive, which they imagined would misrepresent and damage their opponents, and mislead the people. The better the man, tho more falsely and malignantly they assailed him. They boasted of theft which they did not commit, but which they believed they hadi They, started out by throats of killing and vii lent crushing of one and another kind. They wholly avoided manly or even 'ordinary opposition. What they did not do or say. to carry their- points, they failed tu think of. For ail these and oilier reasons, we with joy and gladness, jsongratulate the of Ariiona at large and as well those of Pimi county upon their deeLkm on Tuesday last. It is haid to realize the immense value of the victory of that day, aiid what dire calamities have been averted thereby. Again we cong-atulate the People without distinction of party upon their work of Xovrv.inoer loTO. "A Great Liar and Blowhnrd."
