'j'" ... The Elections. . ' JTbroogb the kindness of Ozias Bailey, Esq.,; who arrived here last night, we have been placed in possession of papers containing copions returns of the elections held in the East, last -week. There has been a general ront of Lecompton Demo-' craey. ' ' . " . ' 7 , "In Massachusetts, Banks is re-lctted Governor, by a large majority, with eve ry Republican member cf Congress. The same as in the present Congress. - In New York, E. B. Morgan, Repub lican, js elected Governor, by a large majority; and the united Opposition have elected 29 or 30 of the S3 Congressmen. 4t t T . members. . In the present Congress.) the j have about a dozen. So there is a Democratic loss of 8 to 10 Congressmen i in that Stale. ; In New Jersey, not a single Leeosnp tohite Is elected to Congress. Even the Rip Tan Winkle Hollanders of Northern Jersey have awakened, and followed the example of the people of old Berks, in Pennsylvania. ; They fell asleep in ti days of Thomas Jefferson, and, have just got awake. ..As a. matter of course, they still vote for the principles of Jefferson. Ia the present Congress, New Jersey has two pliant Lecompton members. They have both been black-balled. Adrian, the Auti Lecompton Democrat, was re fused a re-nomination by the Nationals, when he was taken np and elected by the Opposition, over the renowned William Patterson, commonly known as "Billy Patterson," whom the people of his Dis trict have " struck" rather hard. There is-an Opposition majority in the I legisla ture, which will secure a good man (pro . bably Wm. L. Dayton) for the United States Senate, in place of the pliant tool, Wright, who abandoned the Whig party because they would not elect him Gover nor, and for his treachery was elected to the .Senate.. In that body, he has been one of the most abject tools of the Ad ministrations of Pierce and Buchanan. ' In Delaware, the Democrats have elec ted their Congressman. The same as in the present .Congress. . : In Michigan, the Republicans have succeeded, and have probably elected the 4 Congressmen. The same as at present -. In Wisconsin, it is reported that the Democrats have carried the Milwaukie (Potter's) District. If so, it is a gain for that psrty. 1 In Illinois, the race, as far as heard from.', is close. Dong as' friends seem confident of bis success, but the thing is not yet so certain. The Opposition, aSexchange their Weekly. Terily, quito a present, seem to be a little ahead in the Legislature!, w ith a chance for some doubt ful Counties, , .There is no telling how the Legislature will stand. The Repub licans', lave! re-elected their 4 ' present members of Congress. Two of the re reading Districts, are yet in doubt, with a chance for the success of the Opposition. The Buchanan ticket made a beggarly nn.i It is doubtful whether it will re ceive a number m votes equal to the num ber of. Federal office-holders and their subs in the State, Immense frauds were perpetrated by the Douglas party, along tie railroad lines. We wonld rejoice to bear of the success of Douglas, if it were possible to nndo it in a few weeksjust to" aggravate Old Buck ! . Counting the Illinois delegation as on changed, there is now no doubt that there Will be an Opposition majority in the next Congress,', which will be incregjj by ousting several fraudulently elected De xnocratic''members Dick Barrett, Tom Fo're'nce) etc'. Buchanan has done i wa: faL business for -himself and his party. This Lecoicpton scheme, as well as being a little the meanest piece of business of modern days, uas proven the worst polit icab speculation. ' Besides ''the members ejected this year, there will doubtless be an 6ppoItiori gain of 2 in Connecticut, next Spring, and a chance for 2 more in Kfinnfsoia, to say nothing of several Sou thern Americans, who will by no means coalesce with the Democracy. We learn from the Atchison Champion, that Hon. Wm.

They have had rich political campaign np in Woodbury Conntj, Iowa, in which ia situated Sioox City.

An independent ticket, j service for Jeho Glanry Jones, their Con- composed of Democrats and Republicans, was gotten np, and was supported by the Sioux City Eagle. Thin ticket was suc cessful. The Eagle says that extensive preparations for a jollification and a feast had been made in the Half-Breed settle meat A reporter for the Eagle runted the above locality, and in his report we, the name has fallen into snch disrepnte, find the following bill of fare. Could Jen long, when a man wants office, it will anything more dainty be conceived by mortal man ? Who but those with "In jin ' in mem, coma get np sncn rare dishes? It makes one's mouth - and eyes water, even to read it. The Eagle says : On his wsy in, our messenger made a short halt at Smutty Bear's camp, where he.fonnd an immense crowd of nine Half Breeds and a white sqnaw, preparing a feast In anticipation of a general rejoicing over the promised election of Tackett and Allison. We print ihe Bill of Fare, as furnished onr messenger.- It was printed j by (lie Organ, on dry beaver sknis. and with molasses instead of ink. Being printed in the Half-Breed language, it is possible some errors have been mado in translating it. BlU. OF FACE OF FEAST. Soups. Corn cob, seasoned with pole- cat. Fish.

Our reporter had a pressing invitation to remain and partake of the feast, but had to decline, very mnch against the in clination of big stomach. Good Arbanof.mext for Farmers. We observe, by an advertisement in the Holt County News, th.t Teter, Frazcr & Co. offer to advance money on pork, to be delivered in killing seasop, to Ozias Bailey, at this place. Farmers can thns receive part pay for their hogs,-before they are brought to market ; and the ar- rangement will he a great accommodation to many. The Aews, in calling attention to the Advertisement, says: Mr. O. Bailey advertises, in to-dsy's paper, to ADVANCE MOXEY on hogs, to be delivered at his pork honse, oppo site White Cloud, at killing time. The mony is in the hands of Peter, Frazcr Ac Co., of this place, where those having hogs for sale, can now have money ad vanced on them. That this arrangement will be of immense advantage to our for mers, many of whom are now pressed for money, there is no doubt. Many of them who arc owing, and want to pay, have now an opportunity to do so. - When the hogs are delivered, the highest market price will be paid in full, in the remain ing payment. We wonld advise our far mers to make haste and secure this op portunity. . Modest. The Washington Republic comes to us with a marked notice, stating that they shall hereafter demand SI dif ference of all papers with whom they modest opinion it has of itself, to think that it is worth a dollar more than any other paper. The price of the Republic is $2 afjSf, and the price of the Chief is the same. We always like to see (over the left) that liberal spirit in pub lishers, which induces them to refuse to exchange on equal terms with papers that happen to contain a column or two less thsn their own. The Republic deserves a difference of 810, for its assurance. But as we have not 810, nor 81, to spare, guess we shall have to, bid the Republic farewell, which will not affect ns very se riously, inasmuch as it is of little or no use to us. Akotbza Rctfias Go xx. Tho aven ger of blood is still on the track, and another murderer has been paid off. A short time since, Rettrttkd Martin White, who shot young Fred. Brown, at the Os sawatomie massacre, in 1856, was fennd dead near bis honse, on the border of Missouri. He was one of the most blood thirsty wretches that ever engaged ia the Ruffian service. The instrument of Hea-Ten,-who settled the account with this villain, is not known. -- So it is, and so it shonld be. The arenger will hover around, as long as thera is a fichC to be punished.

We bear it whisper ed among the knowing ones, that, within the space of six days, last week', there were six births in onr place every one of them boys. What town can beat it ? It is no doubt all owing to' the soil ofi Kansas. At those licks, who csn doubt that a bright Ctgt awaits WhiU CloadtJ Decli.sk or the Usivsbssl Josei Fa mily. Tlie great family of Jones seems to be rapidly on the decline.

Recently, the people of Berks Comv ' grexsman. True, he has received another 'office, bnt will lose that,' as soon as Old Bnck quits the White House. In ano ther Pennsylvania Congressional Distrist, Owen Jones has received bis "trsvelling card." We expect to- hear of a general stampede among the Joneses ; and, since V. necessary, among other things, in de fining his position, to declare that bis name is not Jones ! tW The Wyandotte Gazette calls at tention to an error, which we bad not noticed, in the map on our fourth page. Kansas City is there represented as being in Kansas, whereas it is in Missouri. It is very near the line, and the mistake was made by the engraver, in running the line on the wrong side of the town. A the citizens of Kansas City generally have considered, themselves residents of Kan sas, about election times, perhaps this led the engraver into the error. Our readers can just consider Kansas City as being in Missouri. . Ssow. On Saturday evening it com menced snowing, and also gave us a small edition on Sunday ; but the snow melted as fast as it fell. iLjpade several other fruitless attempts at snowing, until Toesdsv evening, when a considerable quantity fell, making all out-doors look white and Winterish. We have had several freezes, within the past few days. The first snow, lsst Tear, was on the morning of November 6th; and this year, it was on the evening of the 6th. "Gleasos's Weekly Lixe-ofBattle Ship." We last week spoke of a con teniplatednew literary paper, to be pub lished by Mr. Glcason. In another col umn, will be found a prospectus of it. The first number was to appear the first week in the present month. The name is Gleason'a "Line-of-Battle Ship." An original and magnificent name. We can assure all who may feel disposed to sub scribe for it, that they will receive the full value of their money. The Winter Caufaick. We are happy to state that our foil Winter stock of material has been received, and that we expect to issue the Chief regularly throughout the Winter, unless some un foreseen accident should occur to prevent it.

Dahck. The first dance in the new Hotel, came off on Tuesday evening. It wss well attended, considering the short notice (less than a day) upon which it was gotten up, and everything passed off well. - The Hotel is rapidly approaching completion, when it will be "initiated" by a rousing dance. Foeset 05 the Joses Affair. The Philadelphia Press mskes light of Jehu's ministerial appointment, after this fash ion : Let ns fancy Mr. Jehu G. Jones at the Court of Tienna, conversing (throngh the medium of an interpret. r) with the Prime Minister. What if that function ary asks him what special services to wards the United States recommended him4o the high diplomatic office of Am bassador to Austria, what reply can he stammer out ? Shall he ssy, "I did lit tle as a clergyman, and less as a lawyer, so 1 turned politician, being what is fa miliarly termed 'rather hard np.' I per suaded the honest, simple-minded, true men of Berks County, FennsyiTsnie.that I would serve them faithfully. They be ttered me. and returned me to Congress. Very speedily, by a miraculous process often practiced at Washington by Legis ratire Micawbers, I emerged from humble into wealthy cirenmstances. I ingratia ted myself with the President, and fre quently dined at his table. To swell my own importance and show how well I had got on, I publicly taunt ed a better man than myself with not hav ing had his legs nnder the Presidential mahogany ; I voted against the sover eignty of the People, which I was elected to support ; and, finally, returning back to seek re-election from my constituents, was defeated." The Austrian Count, if he has any taste for hnmor, msy smile, while be says, "Ah, Monsieor 1' Ambsssadenr, I per ceive yon owe yonr appointment here to your disappointment at home ! Ton came from a strange country, where, because a County kicks you, the Government ele vates yon to high office. They say, in fact, that because yonr own neighbors, who know yon well, think yon unCt to represent them in Congress, yon are just fit to represent yonr nation at a Foreign Court." " '..'" How His Excellency, the Ambassador, will receive snch taunt which may be looked as well as spoken we leave to the lively imagination of onr readers. Democratic Units. -The Democrats of Vermont have succeeded in electing one Senator, Mr. French, of Essex Coun ty, of whom the Vermont Phoenix says : "If the minority is to be represented on all the important committees, as is the custom in narliamentarr bodies. Mr. I T7 1. :ri 1.- ti. 1 : r , f icucil w ill w liic vunren iiisu iu nuui- pelier the coming session." In Maine, also,- single Democratic Senator was chosen at the late election. . . ' - The Elections FuriierJEetiirni. The telegraph last night brougbrturtlwr returns of Tuesdsy'a election. The sub stance of the dispatches ws thus condense: Iujsois In the First District Wesb hurne (Rep.) is evidently elected to Con gress. - He has a mnjority in Winnebago Connty alone of 1.250; over Bright (Dong.,) and leads him slightly in near ly every otlier Connty. In the Second DUrii t, Farnsworth, (Rep .) is undoubt edly elected. In the Third District, the figures fivor Lovejoy, (Rep.,) thonghbis opponent, Armstrong. (Dong..) runs well. In the Fourth, Kellogg. ( Rep..) is ahead of Davidson, (Dem.,) as far heard from. There are no retnrns of the Congressional vote in the Fifth District. In the Sixth the Congressionsl retnrns are scant, and in faror of Harris, (Dem.. ) though but slightly. In the Seventh, the retnrns from Coles and Mason- Counties, the only ones reported, give considerable majority forv Oglesby, (Rep.) In the Eighth, Baker, (Rep.) and Fonke. Dong., run close, and the returns are too scarce to indicate which is the successful man. In the Ninth District, Alexander County, the only one reported, givea Logan, Dem., a majority over Phillips, Rep. , A dispatch from Chicago states that tho retnrns so far as received np to last night, showed 35 Republicans, 33 Dong lis Democrats, and 7 Doubtful, elected to thonouse; and 11 Republicans, 11 Dong las Democrats, and 3 Doubtful, elected to the Senate. The doubtful Counties were Fulton, with 2 members 1 Madwon, with 2 members ; McDonongh, with 1 mem ber; Hancock, with 1 memW ; and Wa bash and White, with 1 member between them. In Sangamon County, the ma jority for the Douglas ticket is about 300. In Morgan, the Republican majority seems to be something more thsn 200. In Kane, the Republican majority all round is largo something like 1,100, if we resd the re turns aright. - In Jo. Daviess, tho Donglas ticket w.is ahead, so far as heard from, but the rem lining tonihirs, it is said, would et the R'-'Tmblicon ticket ahead. The Republican mniorilv all ronnd in Chicago is 250. .m l it is thought that, in the County, for members are elected to the lg!l"itnre. In Losalle, so far as heard from, the Republican ticket is 200 ahead. There ae partial returns from many other Counties ; but, as they are only partial and liable to be altered by the subsequent returns, we forbear to give them. The result in Illinois is yet doubtful. New Yor.K. The returns from 25 Counties in this State show a Republican gain of 25,000 over the rote of 1856. The Albany Journal estimates Morgan's (Rep.) majority over Parker, (Dem.) at 20,000. The Atlas and Argus (Demo cratic paper) concedes the same. Wil liamson, the Opposition candidate for Congress in the Third District, claims his election over Sickles by 23 majority, though another dispatch informs ns that Sickles is elected by 136 majority. In the Buffalo District, Spaulding, (Amer.) is elected over Hatch, and the entire Un ion ticket is elected also. There is reason to believe that 29, out of the 33 members of Congress chosen, are Opposition, leav ing only the beggvl number of 4 to the Democrats. Massachusetts. The Republicans have carried this State, though, it would appear, by a reduced majority. The re turns from 110 towns shows plurality of I4.UUU for lianks (uep.) for Uovernor. The entire Republican Congressional Del egation is elected, though the msjorities of some of the candidates are dangerous ly small. The Legislature is largely Re publican, of course. New Jersey.

St. Louie News, ith. New York and Illinois. At the time of writing, the retnrns indicate a complete triumph of the Republicans in the State of New York, with a Congressional dele gation of 28 Opposition to 5 Administra tion Democrats. . Ia Illinois, the doubt ful Counties come in slowly and in scat tered returns, that indicate several gains for Douglas in the Honse, and a very close contest in the Senate. - We have nothing as yet that gives him the State ; bnt our reads will, perhaps, be able to find suffi cient in the dispatches to determine the result So far,, we :must confess, they indicate that Mr. Douglas' Free Soil po sition has given him unexpected strength in the central parts of the State, and along the line of the railroads. St. Louis Dem ocrat, ith. The Latest News. The Telegraph brings ns, to-day, further returns from Tuesdsy's election. The Opnosition seem to have elected the entire Congressional Delegation, and a majority of the mem bers of the Legislature, in New Jersey. The Donglssites claim a victory in Illi nois, bnt e triumph is far from being evident yet St. Louis Xevs, ith. ' Ex-Governor Stanton left Kansas on the 8th inst, with his daughter, for Ten nessee. He designs to spend the winter in Washington. He, however, regards himself still as a citizen of Kansas, hav ing a claim- near Lecompton, npon which he is erecting a substantial residence. . The great fact is settled that Dem ocratic Administration, which came into power a year and a half ago with a most triumphant majority in Congress, will be in a miserable minority in the next Con gress. It has made short work of its pat rimony. The President is reported to be sick since be received the news of the election in Pennsylvania. On Tuesday.

John Hickman, jnst re-elected to Co'i press from the Chester District. Pa., for a third term, has certainly no reason to complain of his constituents, lie was trrst chosen as a Democrat, by American help, in 1854, when his party were gen erally defeated, and when this district gave a large majority against every other Democrat. In 1856 be was re-elected, by the help of a special American candi date, though the district was decidedly Republican. He heartily and fearlessly resisted the ; Lecompton policy of the President in all its parts, and was there fore discarded by the regular Democ racy of his District who nominated Charles D. Manly, nis friends then pre sented his name to the Opposition Con vention, bnt a majority of its members preferred and nominated his first opponent, Mr. John Broomall. When it became evident that this result was foreordained, Mr. Hickman's friends receded from the Convention and nominated him as an Anti-Lecoropton candidate. As such, he took the stump ; as such, he is a third time elected in a former Whig and now Republican Ditrict Mr. Hickman unites ability with energy and independ ence, and we believe bis constituents will never have reason to regret this choice. - THE DEATH OF HIS WIFE. ' - , The sudden death of the beloved and gifted wife of the Hon. John Hickman, on the l2lh- of October, has created a profound sensation at West Chester. A friend informs ns that she partook of her dinner as usual, and retired to her chsm- I her to rest, when she wss attacked with hemorrhage of the lungs. She rose and n alked to her hnsband's library, where he then was, and died shortly afterwards. Thns at the very moment when the peo ple of the Sixth District were prepwingi" to reward Mr. Hickman for his adherence j ' to the richt. and to vindicate him a-ainst the assaults of his enemies. God called from his side the noble woman who had been' his stay and his comforter for mmv years past Mrs. Hickman was a hidy of great talent and many endearing qual ities. She resembled her glorious hus band in many respects, and in nothing mare than in the firmness of her friend ship, the gentleness of her msnners. and the kindness of her heart We can onlv regret that she had not lived to see him - j Tt;f nr.. W ILIVI IUIIO( M - The Tariff Q-JESTioXjAdmiuistra- tion politicians are agitating themselves ia regard to the subject of Protection. "Inspector," the correspondent of the N. Y.

Mr. Bnch anan has heard these sonnds before, but never quite so itistinctiy. air. lODD is struck all of a heap, and does not pretend to hsve an opinion in so grave an exi gency. It was related to me last summer, ns sn illustration of tho strict business habits of Providence, R.

"My opinion, my dear friend, do yon wish to hurt my feelings, I have no opin ion. I hove failed," was the answer. How csn a man have an opinion who has failed ? Mr. Cobb has no opinion on the tariff, lie leaves that to the President. He is engaged in the more practical duty of retrenchment and reform which he can pursue nnder the great advantage o( a revenue reduced to half tho expenditures. A Certain Victort. Our Eastern co temporaries seem generally to agree that tho recent elections in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana have decided the fate of Douglas that he is to be beaten. There is no room to doubt the correctness of their conclusions. The influences which hare impelled the people of these States to pat their foot on the neck of the Dred Scott heresy, are sctively at work in Illi nois ; and Mr. Douglas' pretensions to free-soil ism of the doubtful and untrust worthy sort which contents itself with op position to Lecompton only, will not save him from the effect of popular displeas ure. We look for an expression from Il linois that will agreeably astonish our roost sanguine friends. A victory for them is a foregone conclusion ; but a tri umph more decisive thsn anything that they hare anticipated, will be their cer tain reward. Bnt every man to bis post ! Chicago Tribune. The Soil of Kansas. Kansss occu pies an area, 500 miles long by 200 wide, and the average depth of the soil through out the whole extent is eighteen inches ; scopes of country 100 miles square can be selected where the depth will .average two feet and a half, and in many places the soil is five, six and seven feet deep. Think of that, "ye clod hoppers," who delve away yonr lives npon the worn ont and barren hills of the older States. Here in Kansas we have millions of acres of good land, unoccupied, which only needs "tickling to laugh with abnndant crops," while you are laboring to kick a scanty subsistence from amid the rocks and stumps. The rich prairies of Kan sas as they lie smiling in the warm rays of the sun are inviting yon to come, mil lions of acres are begging to be redeemed from uncultivated waste. Herald. Kentucky Moving. The Lonisvil'e Jonmal contains a call for an " Opposi tion" State Convention at Louisville, on the 22d of February next to nominate candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Gov ernor, and other State officers. An invi tation is extended to "Americans and Old Line Whigs of Kentucky, and all others who are desirous of uniting in the over throw of the present corrupt "administra tion of the General Government." The Journal says : . "There is no good reason why there should not be a union of the Opposition strength in Kentucky, and onion is un questionably necessary to success.

One Hundred Gum for Glancy Jjnes. Berks County cast about ten thousand votes for Mr. Buchanan in 1856. giving him near seven thousand majority. At the late election site punislied one of his minions for flagrant crime against her proper authority over him. Berks ostra cised Jones, and now ;t is reported that Buchanan has Anstria-cized him, and- re buked Berks I The appointment of a ninth-rate man to a second-rats mission, or the extension of an Executive clemen cy to a political cnlprif, might be put down among the faults that Presidential nature is liable to, and so he allowed to pasa with no greater censure. But the tiery haste of this indecorous act, and the passionate scorn of the people which bla zes all over it. have a significance which most be attended to. We never expected to see the day when a Democratic Presi dent a onld undertake to deny the respon sibility to his constituents, or mistake the free support of the people for slavish al legiance to bis official chair, or so utterly forget that he is a servant of the people as to deny their jurisdiction over their servants, and insult them for exercising it ; but, most of all, we never could have dreamed that such a demonstration would be made upon old Berks of all the. Counties of Pennsylvania, Berks to be selected for an example ! Lecompton is an insanity ; it can be nothing less or else. An Administration in which we all had hope, and in which even its opponents had confidence, to be engaged first in forcing its candidates up on the people, and then so utterly demen ted, affront them for not submitting ! There ought to be an army in relieve to enforce siuh a movement, if the party in power would escape that sort of contempt which covers the failures or leeUo tool i.slinss ; mere fraud an I cormptfbn have not the resources that can insure success o such an attempt.

The impression exists here, tint the next house will be so closely balanced that its organization may be determined by the vote of a few Southern Americans from Maryland, with Humphrey Mar shall. The friends of the Administration claim Montgomery and Schwartz, in Pennsylvania, and any Illinois members who may be elected, except Hams, who is counted out in company with Hickman, of Pennsylvania, and Davis of Indiana. The Democratic game now is to consol idate the Sonth by surrendering the nom ination to those Americans who will agree to nnite. This will be done in Georgia, Tennessee snd Louisiana. The programme is sectional like that of 1856, and aims to combine the South and to constrain the weak portion of the North. The Moral of Jones' Defeat.

Let the Germans of Illinois and the Great West remember in all fntnre conHicts, that the most ancient sest of German power on this Continenthas yielded to the force of troth, and has spurned slavery and the leaders of the servile Democracy. This is the mora I draw from the defeat of J. Glan cy Jones. . Election Returns in Washington. The White Honse inmates were not very jnbilant over the recent State Elections.
