LANSING STATE REPUBLICAN
Tl'MDAT NOHSIXG, OCTOBER IN, IM3tt. October Elccllowa. Hlfo Republican cn hope for brighter akies than thoso which shed light upon mc returns from tlie elections of Tuesday Ut. In Ol.io glorious Ohio, a clean sweep id made, and the fooling up t.Low3, even by Icofoou admission, a tkaii majority of .Set ra.rr Thousand probably greater. There will be a "Pugh" to let ia the Kuchanan Meeting-House, in a very few weeks, in Ohio. In Pennsylvania, Buchanan bites the du-t, and the sting of his defeat ia the more exas perating. That arrow which pierce him ha been whetted and poi.-oned by hid oi l bosom fiend forney. The great lit log principle of Free Labor, id onward in its march, sweeping before it, all opposition, and planting its banner farther and further weitward, as it proceed, keepir-g even step with cirilization and settlement. In the States of rena-yivania, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa and Minnesota, victory id the word, an J in neither of these St a tee, remains the first vestige of Locofoco Supremacy. Lvetijyoung Minneaota lends her Voice, to swell the uthcu f froa.bim The St. Iul Timet ol the 13th pays: Ketun.H received thus far show the following I.epublicat paint on the vote of IbST liamsay Co.,6'); llennipari, ; Dacotab, 4ou; Ilio, 1U; Washington, loo; Anoka, 100; Carver, 100. The Republicans are known to have gained one Senator and two Representatives in Ramsay, one Senator an 1 one Representative in Anoka, and probably liva Representatives in Dacotah. Democratic gain four in Winona. There is but little doubt of the election of Republican Congressmen, Governor, State ticket, and both branches of the Legislature. Thid news well pays such men as Bingham and Chandler, Colfax, Grow, and Carl Schurz, for their labor in that new vineyard. It if painful to observe the elTort of tho Detroit Fret Prtta, to soften the effect of this perfect crash of diiustrou news, to the ears of its readers. With assiduity to conceal and palliate, it give forth a column of most lachrycoso jer emiad. The party of slavery are fairly routed from all power, through the Free States, and hence forth, so long as Republicans are true to their faith, judicious in their nominations, and concil iatory among themselves, there need be no fear that slavery will stroke its bloody locks again north of Mason and Diion's line, in a generation.

Detroit, Oct. 14, 1S39. Ed. RirrtitiCAN Th election news from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Minnesota, and Iowa, come booming in upon us with glorious Republican majorities. 1 1 in quite evident in Pennsylvania, that ' the Quakers have voted," and the verdict i a complete repudiation of " favorite Son" of that patriotic Slmte. Unehanan left Wa.shiugt n and went b Wheatland just bcf.we. election to spread Lis ekctryfying ir-tluencis among the peo ple to vole tie IN-of.H-o ticket. Just ad the news began ! jMire in be taken with a sud den fit to e-r. 10 Washington, ''c liked the po litical atmo-phero of the Federal capital best, lie was in such hot haste to get there that he started on f.t. In going to the depot he stub bed bis toe ai.d measured his length upon the ground completely atunned but whether by the effects of tho fall or by the flection news, the telegraph accoant dooa not say. The Buckeys ha rolled up a majority of from 17,000 to 20,0-.io a largely increased majority on the last election. That will do for the pork eaters. The young and vigorous State of Min nesota, has sent her edict to Washington against the infamous Lccompton swindle, and the whole infamous policy of the present administration. Becker, Locofoco candidate for Governor, from present returns is badly whiped. Becker is a Michigan boy a son of the late II. Becker of Ann Arbor, and was educated i:i the right polit ical faith, but getting out there, surrounded by the Locofoco patronage of the Federal Govern ment, he apostosized for office. While Minnes ota was a Territory, controlled by Federal ofli cers, she wa Locofoco, but when the people came to act in their sovereign capacity, they turned up Republican. Perhaps young Becker ia not past repentance, and may hereafter become converted to his first love. Senator Rice is also from Michigan, having went front Kalamazoo, lie also, I believe, was once opposed to the Lo cofoco party. He had better bo setting his house in order. The Supreme Court id now ia session, and this morning delivered their opinion i:i the celebrated Tyler case, involving the jurisdiction of the I". S. District Couit t. try Tyler for shooting Capt. Jones, on the Canada side of the St. Clair River, on board the schooner Concord. The opinion was unanimous against the U. S. jurisdiction. Ton will remember the circumstances of the Tyler case. He was a deputy V. S. Marshal, attempting to seize the vessel out of the juris diction of the United States. His trial iu the District Court of the U. S. was looked upon as a most magnificent farce, and the verdict was ditto being a fine of one dollar and 2 days in our rickitey old jail for a conviction of manslaughter. He was indicted in the Circuit Court of St. Clair Co. for murder, and after the expiration of his sentence he was taken to St. Clair on the indict ment, when he plead the trial and conviction iu the U. S, District Court in bar, and the question was tent up t tho Supreme Court. He will bow be tried in the St. Clair Circuit Our State Fair was a perfect success in every respect. All the department of industry were fully represented both agricultural and mechan ical. Governor Banks delivered the address, and was listened to with profound attention by not less than 10,000 people, while it was impossible for another 10,000 who were on the ground to get within hearing distance. He left a favorable impression with the people of the State. While here he was magnificently enter tainedone erenirg at the house of E. X. Wil eoi, Esq., of the Executive Committee of the Society, and the next evening at the splendid residence of Senator Zack Chandler. Not onlv the people of this city, but from all parts of the the State, thronged to greet him. Tho work of Registration List week went off ery well, by dint of hard work to get the voters up to register. The Locofoeos who h are howled to loud about the unconstitutionality of the law- were the most enger to register, and in doin so of course committed numerous frauds, that sub ject several f their choice spirits to a term in tho State Prison whither they wiB surely go, if mey persist in coo sn mating their frauds on the sty of election. It baa already appeared that the tame precious citiiens are registered in two or three oifferent wards, for the purpose of voting in all the places where they are re gistered. Some of the Locofoco members of the board, discharged their duties with a reckless disregard to their oath, or the provisions of the law. It is not intended, however, to allow them to profit by their rascality, without paying the penalty. Our candidate for Mayor, Mr. Chris tian IL Buhl, will be elected by not less than 500 majority, and we shall carry the City ticket and Council. John II. Harmon is working with desperation, with all his adroitness and management, but it is " no go." He is " played out," although he is a capital good fellow pcfonal!y,and nnny would hke to vote for him, but for the party he is identified with. Ill splurge "against Collector Shoemaker is not likely t l.e'p him much in this contest, for they refuse, as yet to lop Mi chael's head oil. Should they do bo before election, John would be able to whip in a good many by the promises that would be made for situations "after election."

The twenty-fourth amaul me-.-tlng of the B.ip-ll.-t Convention of the State of i!i-!.i';i con veiled iu this city on Thursday, ;. l:;th, nt the Hall of the House, of Representative-. The Board of the Convention nmsi-is i-f Rev. W. P. Puttisoti, President ; Ilev. J. A. Clark, Secretary; C. Ire, Fsq., Trva-.tier; ('. Van Husan, Ksij., Auditor; with i.l.out sixty Vice rreaidents, and thirty 1'ireetor Ti.ir Bond have standing couiiniiics upoti the leaihng ope rations of the Convention, and tioin tl,.- repot ts of these several coiumittees wt- eondeti-o the following particulars : Rev. J. K. John-on, of Jaekn, Ctiainnan of the Committee on Foreign Mii'tw, reported that there have been ronirioijted t. ' funds of the .Missionary Union, by ul the associations in the northern and northwrsterti Slates, during the pa-t year, about -f1." ',". Ti e entire amount contributed by th-j Mi. hi'aii 'oiiveiuioii to thid fund id .".V'.4 ; which, with one excep tion, is a less amount tha'i has been contributed from this Convention for the last ten years, while the number of ronrnunicanM has considerably increased during that tini-. Tni- is n I o t to he deeply regretted, ami shon; 1 eall upon all the churches for renewed iflorls. The number re ported to have been baptized in the Foreign Mis sion lield, for the year, is 1,'Ji '. Rev. M. Allen, f Detroit, as Chairman d the Committee on Domestic Mis-ion, r-om..i a. at n Ix.Lin ver the field of tin' Society's oteia lions, the Committee found that there are many pressing applications lor aid from interenting lo calities Ix.'th from stations already oectpied by the Society, and others where it would be very desirable to bestow labor nor have the Com mittee found a lack of men who would nerve the Society iu these fields; but the Treasu-y has been and is still ovet drawn, and the Society has been greatly crippled lor want of binds, of the two hundred and nine churches reported as K longing to the several associations of the Con vention, only for'y-nix have contributed anything during the year, leaving one hundred and slx;- three churches that have contributed nothing for Domestic Missions. Tito Board l ave ren dered aid to eleven (stations in the State, to the amount of f '."if..!?. Two of these stations have been added d.iting the year. Th- i umber of baptisms reported from all these station- for the year is lifty-oii'ht. The Executive Committee on Ministerial Edu cation, in charge T the educational int-'resis o! tho Convention, reported, t'irou;h their rhah uian. Rev. S. Haskell, thrr, in accordance with the plan previously established by the Conven lion, the literary department o' tho Kalamazoo College has been the main dependence for meet ing the present education! wants of the churches ill the Contention ; :!, lite! i for--, the Theolog. ical Professors, in the ai-senee ot c'isses ready to advance in lha theological course, have been allowed to expend their Linus mainly upon the regular college ilasses. These college and pre paratory classes, at present, contain forty-six christian young men, mostly from the churches of this particular religious body. From twenty to thirty already anticipates entering th" minis, try, and others are inipiiring for duty. At the opening of the present se.idemic year, a diss of eight ot these yours men entered to pursue, either in p.rt or in full, the two years theologi cal course. The committee seem to feci that th' Conven tion are almost within J lucking distance of the fruit so long and anxiously hoped for, ns the re sult of seed which has for many years been plan ted by the sacrifices of the churches of this Convention. The committee hare reason to hope that hereafter, regular a: l enlarged classes, will annually piss from the Literary to the The ological department of the Institution, and grad uate thence to the pu'pits ar.d labors of destitute churches and fields. But in order to realize this desired result the Convention must put f-th strenuous and wise efforts. The real estate of the College was vsued lat year at about 3'V" which has only been changed during the past year, by the completion of certain work on the buildings with some im provements of the streets and fences sut the Ins'i'ution. The endowment fund for support of Profes sors, has not been changed the past year, and amounts to $2I,42f- SI. Of this amount $1, 604 13 has been paid in and invested at 10 per cent. The remaining portion being in promissory notes. The amount of iaterejt collected during the year, from the endowment fund, :s $-35 21, and the amount now due and ur.paid for the past and previous years, is ? 1,7 27 So. The subscription and notes for current expen ses, sinking fund, &c, amount to tbont ?",2C and the debt against the same is ij,22'X Sub scriptions amounting to 112 "2 for the "Bene ficiary fund" have been xradc the past year. From this fund three beneficiaries have been aid ed a follows : one of 40,one 6- and one 12.00. Two other becificiane have been added to the lis and an appropriation of 50 00 to one of these, and $70 00 to the other, has been gnsted. One who had been aided to the amount of 35, has left the Institution and has given hii note to refund the same, leaving four members on the Kit to receive aid, to whom the aggregate appropriation of $225, L been allowed. This fund needs to be immediately increased, to meet the pressinz demands made upon it. The committee are pained to report, that but thrc-' of the churches of this body, have respon ded to the appeals for aid in this direction of benevolent action, so that, thus far this fund has been mainly dependent upon a few noble, gener ous hearted individuals. The expense of Agency, ic, for the past year has been $ ICC, as appears from tho report of the "Fiscal Agent." Tho above report, with the transaction of con siderable miscellaneous business, occupied the Board during the lirst day. Iu the evening, the Rev. J. A. Clark of Adrian, preached it most excellent and appropriate sermon from 2 Tim., o, .., his te being 4 The power of Godliness" which wj.s most hapily illustrated and strongly tntorced upon ail r of Godliness. The holy living of the members of the church, was clearly shown to be the great instrumen tality by which the church is to accomplish her mission on earth. Frid.iv, O-tobtr It. Tie- Board convened again this morning at S o'c'n.ek, and prepared their business to present, in proper ord-T to the Convention, which whs duly lil' d to older at half past ten, by one of the Vice P resident.

We forgot to state in its proper place, that at the close tif the sermon last evening, a collection of ij f t the aid of Domestic Missions was taken. At tin; close of the sermon this morning, a collection tor the "Gciieia! Fund" was taken, amounting to 'ii In.

Interest accruing during the year and on hand 171 which latter sum was subject to ap propriation, and lets hen appropriated except 7 S.s. The committee state that their efforts to gather full statistics from all tho Churches id the Con vention, of their Sabbath Schools, have proved .hi entire fiihire, because of a failure of the Churches to rcspoti 1 tn thid call. In view of the growing importance of Sunday Schools, the committee urge the attention of the Churches to this growing interest. The committee are of opinion that no similar amount of money expended by this Convention, has ever, or can ever produce an equal amount of good, in any other, as well as iu this depart ment of Christian labor. The committee on the "Michigan Chrintiun . r-p'.," state that this paper has been the or :aa of the Denomination for nearly seventeen tears, and has been greatly beneficial. It piesent circulation, they say, is about :;oon copits, and they urge upon all the members of the Convention to do all they can to increase th t circulation very largely. The Board have made appropriations from th Domestic Mission Fund as follows: To Rev. R. De Roche, for the French Mission Station, at De troit. This appears to bo one of the most interest!! g fields oecupicd by the Convention. Several Papists have abandoned their "Bead Religion" and embraced the religion of the gos p.l during the year pat. To Rev. J. Gunder inan, for Essex and vicinity, fr three months. Rev. W. R. Northrop, of Monroe City, has applied for and received an appropriation from the Board. This station has been a Mel t the present meeting. The Rev. I. II. Moore, from the ?tatlon in this city, sta'ed that the church here were very thankful for past aid, ar.d hire determined to ask from the Bear 1 no further nsiis:tr.ce. This church have been struggling bard to erect a house of worship, which is non- about completed, and is to be dedicated daring the present meet ing of this Convention. It has been stated by a memlter of the Con vention that about twenty houses of worship have been erected by the churches connected with this liody during the year just now closed; and durirg the same period, two valuable aitd long-tried members f the Board have gone from labors to rewards, by the pithway that leads through the shadow cf death. At 11 o'clock this mornln, the Convention, with the community, enjoyed the privilege of hearing a sermon from the Rev. C. P. Read, of the State of New York ; and iu the evening, the Rev. Mr. Haskell favored us with a valuable ser mon, which was followed by an interesting social meeting, which was also followed by the closing sitting of the Convention. The quarterly meeting .f the Board for the ensuing year are to be Lld at IoEia, Saiine, Kalamazoo, ar.d at Detroit the last named being the place selected for holding the next annual Convention. There has been quite an amount of business done durirg this meeting, which has been trans acted in harmony and with dipatch. One ques tion only has drawn oat lengthy and warm dis cussion, and that was in reference to a change of policy ia conducting the Seminary and College I at Kalamazoo some thinking it better to sepa- j rate more distinctly the Theological from the Literary department, while by far the greater ! portion believe the present the most desirable j and wise policy to be pursued, and this the final I vote sustained. In consequence of this vote, J Prof. Graves offered his resignation of the chair j which he has so satisfactorily occupied ia the j Institution.

Ati 1 as not 1 one in fifty, perhaps. f the readers of th- .'-. .a.W have taken this fashionable ftp, v j propose impelled thereto by habit to - ,y . few word o' the route, and the places visited. I Taking tho cars at St. Johns which " bound yet to bo a flourishing village, as the na'urally rich resources of f'linton and Gratiot cotitities, -ire developed the fitst twenty mil. lead through j a section heavily tiniVred, and but slightly set tled; but on striking Maple river, and shortly after, Gran 1 river, near I.yot , flr d old setth- ments dottirg the way, ar.d the seem ry is de- l:ghtful. This is the case al! al mg the letter river, near which th- Detroit ard Milwaukee Railway runs for seme thirty m'l. s, ti l it leaves it in Kent county, ar.d the traveler sees no more of it, except to cro it above GrareJ R.ip;i--, tillj at its mouth at Grand Uavcn. J Six miles below Lyons which is s,j fa- frota the railway that the traveler has but a glimpse of j the place is Ior.Ia, a pleasant village, and county seat of Ionia comity. These two villages are townships about equtl in population, the Lumber ia each being not far fron 5 2. ''. The popula tion of the county is cot much short of 5, ".. It is generally suppose 1 that the railway pas.;s Grand Rapids ; and so i: dots, at, f;u::e a dis tance. The traveler in pursuit of knowledge under difficulties win tzi that it costs him over eight miles cf railway fore to get from the station to the city ; the distance to the business part of the city beicg cearly two miles. The citizens are making an effort to construct a light railway, and they should not rest till this is done, so that for a dime, at most, passengers may be set down in front of the hotels. Grand Rapids is as much a city ia population and appearance as Detroit was twenty years agv. Some of is stores will compare favorably with the best in Detroit even now ; and though I cannot think it will ever be as large as Detroit cow is, it certainly gives fair promise of becom- ieiiund. Its plaster beds below the city, but I radically in it are an inexhaustible source of weakh ; imd it is confidently expected that salt, for vhieh boring is going on, w ill Siioa fie exten sively manufactured. With euch resources, nothing, it would seem, can slay the progress of Grand Rap'tN ; aud her rival sister cities must make up in enterprise w hat she has by nature, or she wiil leave them :.ll behind. Several villages are projected along the rail way west of Grand Rapids, but none yet have attaiifd any considerable ?ize until we approach the mouth ot Grand t'ivcr. Mill Point and Fer- hills. These sand hills are among the greatest natural cm iositit's on our globe. For hundreds of miles they stretch along the western coast of our State in some places four hundred feet higher than the lake, and extending a mile back therefrom. Their entire composition is tpiichsand, all of vlucli has been washed ashore by the lake, and piled into mountains by the wind. Many parts of these hills are covered with a heavy growth of pine, hemlock, cedar, c. In osne places, the old forest has been partly or wholly buried by it-cent deposits til "sand. In other places, the wind has wotn away the sides, nudei mining the (M l hi ir-'iiiir, . in ru ii. e . ii.tn-.-s lO.o.f ue- cribed going on.
