So far as we are able to determine from the returns
received, the Taylor ticket will succeed by a large
rmjority. Out of Ihvj general wreck we have saved
Indiana, Ohio, and probably Michigan and New
Hampshire. We are disappointed, it is true; but,
we must confess, against the teachings of our better
judgment. Our consolation is, that the Democracy
of our own State have remained firm and unshi.ken,
while almost every where else, they have in a greater
or less degree, yielded to the humbugs, and the false
hoods, ana the scoundrelisni of whiggery.
The Whigs will again have the government ns
they had it in 1840, with sweeping majorities every
where in their favor. Now let the Democracy step
aside, yielding with a good grace to the declared will
of the majority, and look on a? disinterested specta
tors. Let ns not follow the infamous and traitorous
example of our hypocritical and knavish opponents.
Let ns indire them patriotically and charitably ! If
they do any thing worthy of praise, let us give them
credit for it, and only condemn what is blameworthy !
They will have a difficult task to perform. They
bare elected a man wfco confesses that he never
voted, and knows nothing about politics. They will
have to appoint cabinet officers, who will act as his
directors and guardians, and upon whose character will
expend that cf the administration, as in the case of
Harrison. No whig can now guess what it will be.
It may be such as we can honestly support ! Time
will goon show. Let us patiently await its devel
opments. For ourselves, we feel that vc have done all that
duty or even punctilio " required of us. Our dem
ocratic fellow citizens of the masses, in Indiana, can
say the same thing. The consciousness of this, will
in some degree alleviate the pain of general defeat.
We shall, like An'ueus, gather strength from our
fall ; but unlike the heathen god, we shall never be
Let every Democrat remember the era of 1840, and
from those recollections obtain strength, and fuith,
and encouragement. The career of Democracy may
be slightly and occasionally impeded by adventitious
circumstance-, or the errors of friends or foe. So
may clouds occasionally hide the bright f;ice of the
sun. A brilliant day will soon dawn, and the sun of
democracy will shine as brightly elsewhere as it still
docs in nobis Indiana !
ßSome of our democratic friends were very in
dignant, on Tuesday, at feeing the Taylor men, who
have the management of tne Blind Asylum, leading
up the blind boy to vote for old Zack, our friends
believing that it was illegal fur the students to vote
at our polls, whose residences were not in ibis coun
ty. It was so declared by more than one lawyer,
i:pon the ground. Their whig friends however were
delermined that they thou'd vote for Talor, even if
they were indicted and punched lor it. This .vus
''üoing it blind." literailv ! Next wo shall see the
patients of the Insane Asylum lugged out for a simi
lar purpose, and perhaps the Decf and Dumb, also.
Cin't the democrats of the next Legislature establish
another asylum of the halt and the lame for the bene
fit of whiggery 7 It would not only furnish the whigs
with additional voting material, but also provide nd
riiti'jrm! pla'es for broken-down hacks of whigjeiy as
managers and superintendents. We suppose that the
three Asylums already established have not entirely
exhausted the stock of defaulting and bankrupt
whigs, who have always lived like leeches upon the
public, either as princes or paupers.
T"Horace Greeley, the editor of the N. V. Tri-i
bune is one of the successful whig candidates for Con
grcss from New York. So much for the refractory I

lor. That is the game which appearsto be generally
successful in politics, so far as the managers are con
cerned. Ict a man exert himself fur his own side
with alt his heart, soul and strengt!, impelled by n
thcr motive than an honest conviction of right, and !
he may labor forever nut only without reward, but
without even a cold acknowledgement that his services i
have been of ever so little account.
Greeley, in the first instance, bitterly denounced
the nomination of Taylor ; but that man must have
b?en a very superficial judge of human nature, to say
nothing of the nature of politicians, who could not
see that, at the right time, he would sustain the very
nomination w hich he at first denounced. He could
not be deceived as to the mercenary motives of the
men who achieved that nomintion at Philadelphia.
He knew them root aud branch; and he was sure
they would purchase his aid if they could not get it i
on cheaper terms. He was wise to put himself in
the market. Had he not done so, he might have pub
lished the Tribune for the benefit of abstract whiggery
fror. July to eternity, before he would ever have been
thought of for Congress. His shrewdn-ss ha tri
umphed, ard he leaves the tripod for the cushioned
seats of Congress.
A lesson is involved in this 41 circumstance," which
it would be prJi table fur all editors to learn in season.

our ow n will.
RooKBACKS. On Ihr eve of the election, just as we
had predicted, the whig scoundrels and villians eel

tom. The principal one was that which represented
thit Cass had sent McClelland of Michigan to make
a bargain with Wi'mot of Pennsylvania. The lie wa3

be propagated; but 11 the editors who had it in lime,
it 'tied in its dissemination, the Indiana Journal among
the rest. We shall publish it f :r the benefit of our
readers, and t exhibit the infamy of whiggery, as
goon as it is convenient for ui to do so.

THE SOUTHERN STATES.
It is reported la re, on telegraphic authority, that
the Southern States have voted for Gen. Taylor in a
body, South Carolina only excepted.
On ihe New York and Erie road six thousand men
are now at work, and it is expected that by the 1st of
December, cars will run eastward from Binghampton
forty miles, shortening so much tho distance between
the termini of the two sections of the road. A large
depot is to be built eoon at Piermont, w ith a pier on
which fifteen miles of railroad track will be laid
down. This road, when completed, will make a part
of our northern route to New York, and cast of that
city. Its completion will soon be followed by that of
the line from hence to Bellefontaine, and when both
are in operation, Central Indiana, the richest agri
cultural country in the world, will be only about 70
or 75 hours from the great commercial city! Not
many years will elapse after that, before we shall
have a continuous line of railroad to New York, by
skirting the Lake shore with a link from Sandusky to
Buffalo, at least, which will take us to New York city
in 00 hours. The New Yorkers have no idea what
ever of the importance of this matter. Philadelphia
and Baltimore are not much in advance of their
neighbors in knowledge, and immensely behind
them in work. Baltimore, however, has begun to
move, and has changed the administration of her
western railroad company. She has got to work
sharp, however, to overtake New York, and labors
under worse difficulties. We hope she will get over
them all, and soon extend her road to some point on
the Ohio river as low down as possible ; the lower,
the better for the read, in every way. Philadelphia,
if she is wise, will push her line west, through Cen
tral Ohio and Indiana, so as to get it to Bellefontainc
before the line can be built around the Lake.
Fkom Albany to Buffalo. A letter from Syra
cuse to the New York Journal of Commerce, says
that important changes for the better are to be made
on the railroad line between Albany and Buffalo ; by
which the time of the fast train will be reduced from
abut 23 hours to 17i, and the price from !$12 to
$0 75. Two other trains will run each day except
Sundays, one in 18 hours, and the other in i$ hours.
The three trains leave Albany at 7 o'clock, A. M., 2
o'clock P. 31., and 7 o'clock P. M. Leave Buffalo at
7 A. M., and 2 and 9 P. M. The new arrange
ments were to be completed and go into operation by
the 1st of November. So much for even the prospect
of competition by the New York nnd Erie line.
When the latter gets into full operation, it will need
better treatment than they have ever yet had, to in
duce passengers to prefer the lino from Bufifalo to
(7-General Stephen W. Kearney died at St. Louis
on the 30th nit. General Kearny was born in New
ark, New Jersey, about the year 1793, and was thus
!n his 55th year at the time of his death. He entered
the army as lieutenant in 1312, fought at Qucenslon,
and served through the war with credit. He was
made a major in 1321, a lieutenant colonel in 1833,
a full colonel in l?3G, and a full brigadier general in
1310. His abilities as a tactician were acknowledged
to bo very superior, and have been frequently made
use of by our government in drilling nnd improving
the cavalry arm of tho service. The career of Gen.
K. during the Mexican war is fresh in the recollec
tion of the public.

Mr. Smith thus replies
1st. I deny the right of Government to pell, or,
even, to give nwav land. Government is not a land
owner, ihe laud ot the world belongs to uie people
of the world and as much to any one individual, as
to any other. Moreover, their title to ii is as abo-
lute ns to the tiir. That one of these elements can
be apportioned, and that the other cannot he, makes
not the title, which every human being possesses to
the one or the other, less valid.
2d. I deny the right of Government to meddle with
the subject of education. It has no more right to
meddle with the school than with the pulpit to furn
ish the instructions of the one than of the other. If
it he said, that the instructions in the one case are
religious, and in the other not, the answer is, that this
distinction oi'Tht not to exist; and that the arrange-
merit or policy, which errvrs to maintain, or favor,
it, is to he deprecated, instead of encouraged. The
admission, that Government should have no part i:i
moulding the religion of its subject, is n virtual ad
mission, that it should be excluded from the school
for if religion should bo any where, it should b in
I wouhl have Government confine itself to the work
of protection. Wi re its duties within 1 lint , its only
sphere, faithfully and I'olly performed, nothing more
would be claimed from it.
Many wise and good men would have Government j
furnish labor, as well as education, to its subjects, j
But let Government protect its subjects in the enjoy- j
merit of their n atural rights especially of their right j
to personol liberty, in spite of slaveholders, or other i
pirates; and of their right every one of them to a I

of their right to buv and sell where
in spite of those, who see!; irain from tnritfs; and of1
their right to reptidlatc d;Lts, not incurred with their'
own consent; and let it, withal, cease from war, that
chief devourer of the earnings of the p"or; let it i
do all this, and its subjects will be able to take care
of themselves to take care of their own minds also.
Absurd, indeed, would it bo for tne, when contitm- j
ally stealing from my neighbor, to talk f i:s need
of charity at my hand. But not less absurd is it fur !
one of the spurious Civil Governments of this world
to claim, that its subjects are dependent on Govern- j
mental charity. It is hut justic that my wronged
neighbor needs from me. It is but justice that its
wronged subjects need from Government. i
There is another reason why Civil Government is !
not to be regarded as a mammoth dispenser of chari-1
ty, and its subjects as a group of mendicants about it. ;
It has nothing to bestow. It is, or should be, poor.
It should live from hand to mouth. It should have
no permanent funds. The wealth of a nation is to
be left in the hands of the people; and, excepting 1
that it may, from time to time, call on the people for
so much of the currency, as it has proper occasion !
for, the Government is to be kept empty-handed. :
Moreover, to the end, that the people may be duly
watchful or the expenditures of their Government,
these expenditures are to be defrayed by direct con-
tributions from their pockets, and not through t.'iosc
indirect taxations which lull the popular vigilance
I need say nothing hi protect myself from the in-
ference, that I am indifferent to the education of the
mosses." Such an inference would he as unwarrant-
able as that, because I would not have Government
do it, I would not have its subjects christianized.
No warmer desire have I than fjr universal cduca-
tion the universal best education of the bodv, the
head, and the heart. But, such an education no Civil
Government will ever provide and the peoj do who
shall provide it for themselves will be a people so
happy as to live under a government, which honestly
and intelligently ims to protect its suldects in the
enjoyment of their rights, und w hich, also, aims at
nothing beyond such protection.
Irish Affairs. The N. Y. Tribune speaks of the
conviction of O'Brien, and of the attitude of the Irish
people in regard to it, in the following terms:
'The conviction of William Smith O'Brien sends
a thrill of anguish to in any a generous heart, iu spite
of the prevalent conviction that his sentence will not
be carried into execution. He may be pardoned, or
perhaps transported for a season, but the Aristocracy
of Great Britain are too shrewd to seal with his blood

by the flashes of her own captured guns, compelling
him to do penance before the corpses of the brave

in the taking of .Monterey, and garrisoning that town

were in the fights of Com. Stockton at the Mesa and

Dear Sin : Our election is over. We have heard
fr"tn six townships, and we have held our own, taking
all six together, and a small gain as far us heard
from, I think about six votes. Our majority in this
county will be in the neighborhood of 300, nnd it
will not vary much from that number.
We fell behind 19 votes in this township since the
August election, but wc gained a few in Morrel, a
few in Sugar Creek, and a few in Hendricks town
ship. I think you may set this county down 300 for
Cass. Yours, J. M. W.

that Taylor has 4 majority in this county over ('ass,
the Quaker portion id" the free soil party, at West

this astonishing 7) which reduced the free soil vote
from that of August some fiftv votes. If thev had
been faithful and true to their principles and pledges,
we would have carried the county by about forty
votes; but this as it stands is a most glorious victory
for the democracy of old Federal Hamilton. The
sceptre has departed from Judah I mean fr in the

Bain's am Mouse's Tf.j.ko ha nt The New York
Courier explains the difference between thee two
systems, fo far as rapidity of operation is o nccrned.
.Morse's telegraph (or any other except Bain's) can
only transmit matter as fast as one person can write
it, because only one operator can work at a time.
On Bain's plan the matter is prepared beforehand ; and
then wound upon a cylinder; when it is to be trans
mitted, the cylinder is turned and this can be done
with olmost any degrte ef despatch; for example, in
transmitting the President's message by Morse's sys
tem, it can only be done as fast as one man can writo
it. On Bain's system, tie message can be cut into
one or two hundred parts nnd put into the hands of a
many men. It can thus be made ready, wound upon tho
cylinder and wound off again, almost instantly. This
is the theory of the instrument: whether it will bo
fuliy sustained by practical results remains to be eeea.
