Tho failure orGen.Ben.Batler to capture the rumination of the Massachusetts Re publicans, for Governor, is a matter for general congratulation. His success woold lave been a disaster to the Republican par ty, which would hare found fo agntfieant an endorsement of the "salary Grab" as the adaption of its author as the regular nomi nee of so large and influential a body of republicans a heavy load to carry. It would have been a calamity to the administration of Gen. Grant, which would have been charged (though doubtless unjustly) with securing Butler V nomination. Beyond and above these consideration, the thorough defeat of to unscrupulous a demagogue as Butler, should be cause of rejoicing to honest men of all parties. 'Wo hare never believed, as our columns bear witness, that he could succeed, and ear confidence in the strength o...

He was beaten in 1S71 by about the same figures. The State electiens in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Iowa will come on the lit Tuesday (the 7th) of October. Well-informed Republi cans in Ohio predict a majority of 25.000 for Xoyes, and the other two States will go largely Republican. The promised revelations concerning the Brooklyn treasury frauds show that City Treasurer Spraguc has been in the habit of loaning large sums of the city's money to members of the ring to be used for political purposes, and pocketing an enormous in terest thereon. He is now in custody. The "potato-bug party"' is what the Iowa non-grangers called the new order which is creating so great a commotion in the West.
