TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 13, 1850.
Thomas L. Anderson, Esq., of Palinyra,
.will deliver an address on the subject, f
, Temperance, In this city, on the eveoiog of
ti.!?i;YHE ELECTION-ITS RESULTS. ,
The smoke of the battle has now suffi
ciently rolled away to reveal to the eye the
fruit of the victory. We count distinctly
three whig Congressmen Darby, Porter,
-tnd; Miller, in the 1st, 2d and 3d districts,
Hhe remaining two not yet heard from, but
lave most likely followed suit. The Legis
lature, from present indications, will be di
vided into three parties, none of which will
hare a majority the wfrige, jerhaps, the
strongest of the three. .
i. ' At we stand upon the battle ground, sur
veying its Thermopilies, Waterloos, and
Chepultepecs, our thoughts naturally turn
-to the causes of so much agitation and such
iinusual result.; Missouri proud dem

rowaed as the banner State of democracy,
l odw to b misrepresented in Congress by
Vt:wnig members and a Senator. What

principle? No; the dominant party is no

time to tee men and measures in their true
light, to came up in solid column for our
principles and our country. ' Confusion has
been scattered abroad in the land, not only
in Missouri, but throughout the Union.

stent the storm of, sectional fanaticism that
had arisen and was wildly sweeping over
the land, threatening to bury in its fury our
glorious republic. While this has been the
eb'uris of patriots, however, others of gi

spreading their sails tonde upon the storm
Mea who before had stood true to the doc
trine that alone must sate the Union, were
seen to mount upon the current, and in sten
torian notes declare that Congress bad the
power to legislate as it please upon the
sibjact of slavery. Missouri became alarm
ed, and instructed her Senators against all
' ftrch legislation. ' These' Instructions were
coached in language similar to numerous
instructions wade public by Missouri be

At 12 o'clock Tuesday, one or their canffid-
ates was beaten badly beaten beyond redemp
tion, by all the forces the whigs could rslly and
bring into the field; therefore aomethine more
desperate must be done extraneous influences
must be brought to bear the assistance of Ben
ton men must be secured. During Monday the
Benton men chiefly, voted for Fagg and Tate,
but on Tuesday seeing that Draper was behind,
the cry at the polls by them was Fapg and Dra
per. Whisrs themselves cared no longer for
Tate, weinff that he wa already probably eleet-'ton democrats to the House of Representa-
ed, and freely traded their votes with iiemoiruves, uarui ana iiorner, oy iiaiiuiome ma-

Single handed and alone, the democracy could
have carried their entire ticket triumphantly.,

the whigs. Though defeated, the democracy are
not discouraged they will "pick their 'flmts and

Sensible Interpretation. We saw ex
hibited on our streets, a few days ago, a
strange looking icture, the ugliest looking
thing that could be formed by awkward
ness and stupidity it was evidently intend
ed for a Donkey with a dilapidated coon
astride of his back, led by a groom, and
labelled "for Salt River." The curious
gathered around, anxious to discypher its
meaning. Some' thought it represented
Porter on his Donkey going to Congress,
others, that it was intended for Henderson
V The compromise bill," .commonly called
tho "Omnibas Bin, by -way of derision
by its enemies, has certainly been defeated
in the Senate. The slavery question now
wears a more 'gloomy aspect than at any
time heretofore ; however, those mighty in
tellects, Clay, Cass, Dickinson, Foote, &c.
who have stood by it and their country, in
the Senate, still avow their determination
to stand by the ship of state and right her
if possible, even while tho storm around
her wildly rages. ' Hope is still entertained
by the rue friends of the country, that it,
or some other God-send, will yet be taken
up, either in the Senate or House, and pass
ed, that peace may once more be restored
to the country.

THE DEMOCRACY ABROAD. 1
Whilst the public mind here is absorbed
with the returns from Missouri, which is
not so favorable to the Democracy as we
could wish, the news from abroad is cheer
ing indeed- .North Carolina, the old North
State, ao long bound down by the iron
bands of whiggery, has boldly thrown her
shackles from her limbs and wheeled into
the democratic line. The full returns have
not been received, but sufficient to ensure
a complete triumph to the democratic tick
Iowa. The News from this young dem
ocratic giant is also cheering. The usual
democratio majorities, as fares heard from
are invariably obtained by the democracy;
in many instances they are enlarged.
t The special act of the Legislature
to establish Probate Court in this county,

be held in November, we presume, for the

dous ithwer and unanimity. 'And if the
voice of the people could now be taken, we
verily beiieve that like tho voice of God
when heard in his thunderbolts, it would
hurl to the depths of eternal ignominy and
shame, every man engaged in its defeat.
The enemies of the Union have now a
short triumph. Let them gloat over it.
Let them riot in the ruin they have wrou

of the country's hopes. We shall see the
shin of state rif lit itself. We Shall see
the ou'pouring of the indignation of a be-
traved and outraged people. We shal
see the blasting of selfiish intrigues, the
wilting and withering of corrupt faction,
the intense burning up of unholy bargains
between Northern and Southern plotters
against the Union, in the furnace of the
