York Etprtta writes, Oct. 17:
' It Is ery hard for us old Whig to ;ay n,
but the best If not the onlv chanoe now for the
country la tho success of the Democrats. In
thti view, the result of the recent elections tn
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana, are cheering
indicftUonstho defeat of such men as Grow,
of renntylvaula, Bingham and Gurley in Ohio,
are ery favorable symptoms of the conserva
tive sentiments of the people, and if the same
party and candidates can be overwhelmed In
New York next month, I shall nut despair of
tho Rspublio. The result in the above three
Stiites has been a severe shock to the radicVs
hero. I know, from good authority, that Mr.
Lincoln is groatly cast down by It, and bo fears
th it worse Is coming from New York. He ha
been told tbathls proclamation baa done It, and
that Ml Is but tbe beginning of the end sa
tar as his Administration and the fate or the
abolitionist are concerned. I do hope that
tbe fatal results of that measure will become
apparent to him, and that no pride of opinion
i)l provent him from annulling It.
Ur. Reward, and others of hla colleagues, are
connervattva, but I considered, they were only
hanging by their eyelids as members cf tbe
Cabinet; but these recent elections will make
if i. Lincoln pause In hla forward movement
under abolition influences, ami if New York
nil! aroino herself, and give the radicals a
grand defeat. It may yet save tbe country.
Mr Cbae, by hW counsels and sinister influ
ence, and Mr. titanton, by his Ignorance, dog
matism and miserable management of the War
Department, have been the bane and the curse
of the country; and If 'the waked wrath

Tne rapid advance In gold, or rat nor the ra

lew it m any way, mis appreciation m me
currency Is a aymptom of most sinister Import.
thn 1n:o Issuo of paper money and the want
of confidence In the Administration are tbe
two great or only causes for either a change
ol policy and a remodeling of the Cabinet to
tho exclusion of the abolition element, Is the
only remedy to cure or check the evil.
Home hero bellero that, lu view of tho ad
Tbtrtrt results to the abolitionists In the late
elecUoi.s, which, e.ven If no further reverses
occur to them, will leave the radicals In a ml
w rlty In Uongrem, they will be desperate at
ihi nxtseuion, and will therefore push for
ward their most radical measures before power
pssoestrom their hands. I have little fear of
iIiih. hhJ. was coirte to sav. almost honed they
would, for It would consummate their utter
ruin. Mr. Lincoln, however, has to face the
new Congreta, and he would hardly dare to
tuppurl any such measures, lu view of the
prospect ahead. If tbe abolitionists continue
topuih ibelr extreme measures, I expect to

WlftCONrttS Mr. PoiTtB'd District, We
learn thnt a careful ciuvass of Mr. Putter's
Congrcvional district shows that two thousand
mjro Republican than Democratic voters have

stance, or course, encourages the sympathizers
with tecesflon to hope for the defeat of the
man whom they especially dread on the floor
of the House of Representatives, His energy,
courage, and unflinching straightforwardness
of purple, hav mula him the shinlog mark
of the malignity ol traitors everywhere. Tbe

With a lamentable shriek, Ur. P. T. Ha mum
endeavored, In yesterday 'a Star, to avoid the

ButPhlneas went out ol tbe record, and with
venom on bis pen and mallco In his heArt, de
scended to low Inuendoes and contemptible
personalities. Even Ittdles, who, by their
talenta and Industry, are endeavoring to earn
fame and a livelihood, were not permitted to
escape the calumny of tho chagrined mounte

at the same puffing Birnum by boasting of con
trlbuting many (imaginary) thousands of do)

questionable, but figures are generally correct;
so I would like to know the exact amount, or
within a few thousands or so, how much P. T.
B. has given to the volunteer fund ? In my irn
ressional capacity In New York I gave $1,30,
and In Philadelphia, while fulfilling nn engago

Your styling me an' adventurer' emanates

self. I live In New York, 'Us true, but, like
many actho business mon, I have come to
wnere a great portion or the citizens of our
Republic are concentrated, in order to prose

willing to onter Into a newspaper controversy
I believe, fur yon have always been most slg
nlfloaullr unfortunate in literHrv miranit.
When you attempted to odltTt-paper in Con

tbe private obaraoter of oltlzens, and tbe peace
of the Commonwealth, thnt you were Incarce.

should have permitted him tn luve written

bis nice discrimination and powers as a writer,
be could have gotten up something respectable.
To sum up the- nuttur, Mr. Ittrniim, you are

You have auatalned yuur reputaUon as a hum

refuse, through fear, tn meet me on tbe pro
