The Process of Popular Economy.
Tho most, healthful result of the
present pressure in money nflV.irs is the
alacrity with which every class of soci
ety has resorted to retrenchment.
There is not a household, from tho rich
est to the poorest, that has not adopted
this pr.ictico. Spendthrift habits are
given up without asip.li. In tho course
of a very short time the e fleet will be
visible. Henceforth, economy will be
hs fashionable as was the rt'Yt'r.u only a
few weeks ao.
The enormous expense of Apparel
will be cut down at least three-fourths,
while the passion f"r event houses, pub
lic and private, splendid furniture, lux
urious eorriatrcs, and the thousand et
ceteras which attend and follow such
follies, will soon become that part of
liistory of which all who participated
in it will be most lif.irtily ashamed.
Tho New York Kveniii; l'ost, speaking
of this determination to save money
mid to stop spoii'lin? it, uses tho fol
lowing striking lan'.'iiairo:
"When all tin- white people of the
United .v'l.'itcs reduce their expenses one
s-hillinjr a day, it makes a difference of
eighteen millions of dollars a week, and
of over fifty millions every month. If
the nation cuuld be kept (in a, reasona
ble short allowance from now to the 1st
of January, what we would save would
alone make u.s rich." l'hihid.hdiia
Fruits of Democratic Policy.
The Albany Evening Journal, having
given a list of tho manufacturing es
tablishments in that vicinity that have
(topped altogether, or are working half
time, adds tliij comment:
Tho stoppage of theso works ii the
f toppaiic of food and clothing and fuel
to thousands and thousands of people,
through the channel of the only indus
try in which they are skilled. The
stoppage , too, is upon the edi:rt of along
un.l cruel w inter. What siilloring there
is in store for American labor, nil can
divine. No policy could have averted
so much of the existing laoiietarv .res
sure as is dun to bad investments in un
proOtablo and unfinished railroads and
speculative purchases of land in the ex
treme West. Hut good government
could have made it unnecessary to
close the manufacturing establishments
of our country at this unpropitious mo
ment. If our revenue system had been
framed to protect and foster American
labor, instead of that of E urope, our
working men and women would not now
be standing idle, meditating upon a
coming winter of unemployed time, and
tantalized by seeing foreign cloth and
iron passing by them, imported under
low duties, dictated by slaveholders and
Uritish free traders.

The Result in This County.
We give in another place tho official
returns of tho election in h:.: county.
It will be seen that the majovity of the
Iemocratie candidate for Kopresenla-
tive over Mr. Collins, is only !.", show
ing that tho Eepuhlieans could eaHl.y
have elected their candidate if many
of them had not neglected to vote. Our
total vote in the county falls off 1,"7, on
tho vote of last Fail, ns shown by the
...,c. f. i : ...i o i .i ... .

officers. A feeling of o er-con fidenco
seems to have prevailed among our
friends, which induced many of them to
fed careless and indifferent about voting
supposing the victory necuro without
their aid. Too much reliance was also
placed upon the supposed divisions in
tho ranks of our opponents, which it.
was believed were too serious to be heal
ed, and must greatly weaken the party.
Tho result proves that it is unsafe to
count upon any disaffection among the
Democracy. However they may kick
against tho action of their leaders, be
fore an election, the cohesive power of
party discipline always unites them at
the polls. So it has been at tho recent
election in this county. Although it is
well known that there was greater dis
satisfaction in tho Democratic ranks
with regard to their ticket than there had
been for years previuus, still the result
shows that it was almost entirely qui
eted and lost siht of when they came
The average American vote on the
State tijket is about 550, which shows n
loss of nearly i'50 on the vote for Fill

went to tho Democrats. In this town
ship, for example, tho American vote
was about 100 less than Fillmore's, the
Republican vote S more than Fremont's,
while Fayne received FJ votes more than
Ruchanan! There is no doubt that but
f or the aid received from the Americans
the Democratic majority would have
been quite small. The Americans who
persisted in throwing away tlicir votes
without the shadow of a chance of suc
cess, have the satisfaction of seeing the
county delivered up to Democratic rule,
and knowing that they might have pre
vented it. Perhaps they w ill bo w iser
before two years rail round.
We were mistaken in supposing that
Mr. Arthur had a majority in the coun
ty, lie received, however, a very hand
some vote, which was a deserved com
pliment to his personal merit and worth.
For some days the result of the elec
tion in this State was involved in un
certainty, and we feared that (Jov. Chase
and the other candidates on the Repub
lican State ticket, had sustained a de
feat. Rut we a.-o now happily able to
say, that there is no longer a doubt of
the success of tho whole ticket excepting
Mr. Eliekensderfer. by a majority of
nearly 2.001) votes. The official re
turns from more than half of the coun
ties in the State, and reported returns
from all the rest have been received, and
show a majority of 'Jl7 for Gov.
Chase, and majorities somewhat larger
for the Oilier candidates.
The heavy loss on our last fall's ma
jority has been principally caused by
the Republicans neglecting to go to the
po llsand vote. In tho Reserve coun
ties, alone, where our greatest strength
lies, this has lost us some G,000 votes
and the same cause has operated iu near
ly all parts of the State. In Hamilton
county Gov. Cha.-c gains 500 on Fremont's
vote last Full, but everywhere else our
vote has fallen off, w hile the Democratic
vote has been increased by the acces
sion of a considerable portion of the
American party. The American vote
has of course decreased proportionately,
and will hardly exceed 1 0,000 in the State
Tho Leginlature is probably Demo
cratic by a Miiall majority in both
branches, but the returns aro still too
incomplete to give the result definitely
jii view oi uu me circumstances we
think tho Republicans have no cause to

opponents to beat Gov. Chase, it i
well known, were unscrupulous and

most shameful and false charges were
trumped up, and used against him by
the Democratic editors and orators, iu
order to excite the prejudices and
passions of th ignorant, and gain
their votes. The leaders of the American
party joined in the hue and cry, and
succeeded in carrying over u large
number of their followers to the De
mocracy. Rut in t-pito of all the
abuse, the falsehoods and misrepresenta
tions of our opponent tho people of
Ohio have stood firm in their attach
ment to Republican principles, and
have endorsed tho Republican adminis
tration of our State a flairs by re-electing
Gov. ('hake nnd placing tho State
offices Ii'. :. iu in tho hi.nds of Republi
cans. This is bonicthing to rejoice
over, and encourage us to fight on
for the triumph of our principles, con
fident that they are founded on truth and
jiutieo, f;iid nai'-t finally prevail.

Tho Steamboat Law passed by Cong

a portion of his remarks in last Satur

"The circulation of the New York
