The editor spent a few hours at tho thriving county seat of Beirien last Monday. lie was rejoiced to learn that the sick ones (Miss Mackio Peeples, B. P. Peeples and W. 11. Morris) were improving.

AFTER THE BATTLE iN WORTH. IildiKimliuu Ovi>f ttw Dirty Work at the Third lleuclmirn. Isaiiklla, Oa., Nov. 11. - Worth hud a pretty hard struggle but managed to give Cleveland mid ■Russell a small majority on Tuesday. At Ty Ty, Dr. Pickett’s homo, mid a third party stronghold, the vote is about evenly divided between Cleve land and Harrison, with only a few votes for tlie third party, they desert ing Weaver and throwing utmost their entire strength to ILarristi, with Hand on tlie ticket for congress. Sumner, a democratic district, gives Bussell 123 and HiimS 173, witli Weaver 73, Harrison' 100 and Cleveland 128. The , third party people oil over the county gave their vote to Hum ,son. A great deal of indignation is felt over some of the dirty work,done by the peoples party H';iiciniK!H, but it is hoped Glut tills is their lost rally. THE AGONY IS NOW OYER. THE ttliul TldlitRN of Un til .Toy from llcfrloo, from fli'orBla nml from tho Whole Country. Tlie election of Tuesday at the Tifton precinct was tho quietest and most orderly we ever witnessed. It was 7 o’clock p. m. before the exact result, was ascertained, viz: Cleveland mid Russell received M3 votes each; Harrison 7 and Weaver 4, Hand received 10 amalgamated votes, “Bohemian” writes' tlie Gazette from Cecil: “Tho election passed off quietly. Total vole polled, 103 ; Cleveland received 79, Harrison S3, Install 05, Party No. 3 came up missing. I saw a largo flock of buz zards mid reckon they had a hog killing time. Somebody did.” Tile Gazette correspondent at Nashville writes: ‘(Tho election passed off ouietly here yesterday witli tlie following result: Cleveland 153, Weaver 44, llarrison C, Russell 153, llmtd 18. “Connell’s Mill distriat gave Cleveland a majority of l for presi dent and Hand 1 majority for con gress.” Notice, to e.Wi out i f are getting homo to the re- j publican fold, whew they properly '(belong, and where their neighbors i liemhmcr. have id negroes ome g ' K St iMi will know them. fe’f The Ti club, with a number of friends from Berrien and adjacent comities, held a grand l'alilioation meeting last highly Their enthusiasm and re juicing over the magnificent; demo oralio victory throughout tlie conn try was unbounded. Mayor Love turned the oity over to tlie ratiflers during the jollification. A torch Iglit procession was on llio program, and was carried out with consummate splendor. Bonfires and other illumi nations, llie materials for which wore at hand and easily procured were also indulged in and tlie clicois for victory were many, long uml loud. Cleveland, democracy and good government are in tho swim! Hip, hip, hurrah! Tlie Gazette foiled to get tho vote of Berrien comity by districts. Notwithstanding the exceeding un favorable weather that prevailed dur ing llie day the democracy of the county did approximately their whole duty, and again sustained Ber rien’s claim as the banner democrat ic county in tlie second congression al district. Cleveland's majority in the county is 937; Russell’s majority 1,202. lion. Ben K. Russell's majority tn tlie second congressional district is not less than 7,000.' Hon. Henry G, Turner has carried the eleventh district by about 5,000 majority. Georgia will be represented in the fifty-third congress by eleven as staunch democrat* as the country cun produce. (Tborgist’s honored sou, Chits. F. Crisp, will lie again elected to preside over the deliberation* of that body. Georgia is decidedly “iu it.” Georgia didn't give as large major ity as in the state election but there is no dark spot on her demoe ratio escutcheon. According io the best information obfuitiabie at the time of going to press tiie tower branch of the house of the. next congress will be composed of 218 democrats,' 127 republicans and 7«alljuncemen. . Lutest advices lead us to believe that the next United ‘States senate will lie under democratic control. The democrats will gain a senator from New York in the place of His- cocfc; one from Nebraska; one from Wisconsin in.lion of Sawyer; Stewart of Nevada, who will tie re-elected as a, jHipulist will also act with the democrats. Then ' the present popu list senators; Kyle . and I’elfsr, will not with the democrats on Hie tariff and all other important.Leues," Thus on the 4th of March t/ext, tlie demo crats will be iu control of belli sen ate. and house and can admit tlie I dntitoeratip territories of New; eo mid Ariaom. wbioii w”’ afar out the aid of tlie populist senators.

Tho Gazette desires to carry no better news to its readers this week than that tlie country will have after tlie 4th of March next a democratic president, a democratic senate and a democratic house of representatives. It is glory enough for one day. THE*CHURCH BENEFIT .nut Win!mutiny Night \v»s Tifton’# Rest Knterlntnuifint. Notwithstanding the very threat ening weather last Wednesday night there was it largo and upprooiativo audience present at tiie Institute,.to wltpeBS the most, attractive entertain ment prepared by some of the ladies ami gentlemen of tiie city as u bene fit to the two churches. Ttro exorcises consisted of tab leaus, and instrumental and vocal music. The tableaus were well con ceived and admirably presented. The itongs were appropriately milory- ed and rendered very sweetly, while tlie instrumental ninsio could hardly bo excelled anywhere. The Gazette has heard nothing hut the most complimentary criti cisms passed upon the entertainment as a whole, while tho individual act ing ami singing of Mies Jackson, Mrs, Lipscomb ami Mr. K. IF. Tift have been applauded with encomi ums of praise. Gentlemen present, who have at tended numbers of umutuer enter tainments in our larger cities and aro therefore competent, judges, say they have never attended a more complete or better rendered mimtenr perform ance in their-lives; it would have been creditable to a much larger place tlnm Tifton. The Gazette does not hesitate to say that no city of Georgia, throe times the size and pretentions of Tif- ton, cun present a greater versatility of musical and theatrical talent, than site, or that can prepare and present an entertaining program on shorter notice.
