Progression. -- A number of Republicans and Democrat voted for “Old Joe,” (Joseph Mafee) the colored man who keeps a boot-black stand in town, for School Assessor. He would have made a dark, but honest Assessor.

We are pleased to notice any sign of progress in our Democratic friends. “Joe” lost two hundred dollars betting that Gorham would be elected, and he says he is a going to get even this fall, for “Grant will be elected sure.”
