Ife give the following reported majorities
at the reoent election. They are mostly from
Democratic souroaa and are doubtless some
what extravagant. There is a material
Ukaoge in the aggregate majority in theio
•onntiea from that of the last annual
aJection, when we carried State by
flrer 3300 majority.
The Democratic gains thus fir amount to
750, but as we have heard from one-half the
population of the State, a like gain in the
rest of the State will not endanger oar State

The Philadelphia Press thus presents the
asw question about Kansas, and the dilemma
in whioh the President and his peouliar par"
lisans now find themselves on that subject:
The people of Kansas, with the most inso
lent pertinacity have adopted the Wyandott
Constitution by a large majority, and at the
Opening of Congress will demand the adtnis
•ion of the new State into our sisterhood of
Republios. It would appear thev have re
fused compliance with the English bill
have not taken a census, and also that they
have not made a return of the votes to the
President, as reported in that bill. What
Will the President do? Will he adhere as a
law-abiding man, to the terms of the English
bill requiring that Kansas should take a cen
sus in order to show that she has the proper
namber of inhabitants, and thus recommend
the rejeotion of the new State, and let this
issue run into the Presidential campaign, as
a kind of poisoned chalice to the oaudidate
of the Democratic partv Or will he do
what the people have done, and what the
"rebels" have advised—frankly ask that
Kansan may be admitted with the Wyandott
Constitution, in violation of the English bill?
If be taken the first course, then we olaim
that he bat not settled the Kansas question
with his English bill, but has kept it open
if the second, then he proves that the men
who opposed the English bill are sanotionsd
by his own authority.
Q3jTThe N. Y. Tribune states emphatical
ly that the story that Col. Fremont has re»

Col. F. is giving his whole time and ener

no letters at ail about the Presidency. We

he WILL write none, nor take any steps in-
