The Result of the Keault.
Now that it is all but certain that Polk ie
chosen President, we begin to hear some of the
consequences thereof. We will barely mention
some of them:
A heavy block of houses, which was to be
built in our City, has been countermanded. So
of several new factories in this State and else?
where. One large eatablishmcnt has already
contracted its busincts so as to dispense with
140 hands, and is preparing to contract (-till far.
ther. Agricultural Produce has generally de?
clined in price in our market since the defeat ol
Mr. Clay was rendered morally certain. Onf
man who had given orders to buy Twenty-fivt
Thousand barrels of Floor in our City has coun.
termanded the order. \ general depression per
vades our Business circles. What is the cause 1
The Evening Post makes merry over the fall
of Stocks, and anothor journal declares this the
result of a want of confidence rather than oi
money! Suro enough ! Our men of Capital
and Enterprise hare not confidence?how should
they have ??in Looo-Focoiam ?
The Post cannot see how a Polk triumph
should. repress legitimate Enterprise and depress
BusgffissS. This is because the Editor never
listons to the Speeches made on his side of the
house. If he will but go into a Town or Ward
gathering of his party, he would see how indus?
triously his eolaborers strive to create onvy, jeal?
ousy and hatred between the Employer and the
Workman. Wealth in regarded as proof pre
tramptive of Fraud, and Profit us the amount
swindled from the hard earnings of the workmen.
When such doctrines are preached universally,
boldly, successfully, is it not time that Capital
should contract the sphere of its operations, En.
terprise become timid, and Hope dubious ? If a
crusade against Wealth is to be prosecuted, must
not Wealth hasten to bury its ingots and await u
' juster public sentiment ? A fall of Stocks (Texas
excepted) and of Produco is the natural conse?
?If the results of this Election should prove
still more disastrous?as we do not see how they
oan fail to do?if the overthrow of out Protective
Tariff should transfer the making of our wares
and fabrics from our own work men to those of
Europe?if an iniquitous War with Mexico should
grill farther paralyze the business of the Country,
we say to all, Struggle manfully against all ad?
verse influences to the last. Never despair of
the Republic. But, if through this baleful result,
half the workmen in our Factories- and Work
shops should be deprived of employment, we say,
Let those who have battled faithfully and
jealously to avert these calamities ie their last
victims. It is their clear right. Thsy have not
regarded with envy or hatred tho prosperity of
their employers; they have not, Samson like,
united to pull down on their own heads the
edinee which afforded them sustenance and shel?
ter. Save all if possible, and as long as possible:
but save these to the last.
The Ansembly.
Duteheas, it is believed, has elected two Whig?
and one Loco to the Assembly; Cattaruugus two
Whigs; Cortland probably two Locos, but not
certain ; Rihmond is reported to have chosen a
Whig; Franklin probably but not certainly ditto:
Sullivan a Loco by a very few votes ; Fulton
and Hamilton disputed. The Albany Evening
Journal says:
" Foltoh a.5d Ha.s4il.toh.?-We yesterday con?
ceded the member of Assembly in this countv to the
Loco Focos but we learn to day, with great pleasure,
that Mr. Chekkt, the Whig candidate, is elected by
upwards of 50 majority. The Whig candidate for
Sheriff, it ia said, is also elected by some a dozen
The Argus has it tho other way. We shal1

We will present a few more considerations
be 9j\nz on thin fnntiiii therac.
One of our immovable objections! to the merg?
ing of tue Whig p^rty into another, based on
Nativism, is our distrust of any party based on a
single.idea. There is a strong tendency to the
I fjrmati".n of pirties on such narrow grounds,
1 which we tb-r.k should be combated and arrest
! ed. Some men think Silvery a very bud thing,
i (and b > far wc agree with tliem ;) and fc-thwith
> one fcu-rgestp, * Let us form an Abo'itics parly to
\ oppose it'?and others concur, without ever Ltirlj
considering whether Slavery is likely to be over
, thrown or upheld by such a movement. So oi
- Native Americanism ; so of oihernotiors. Bvery
r earnest thought ia brooded on, cvuj special evil
magruficd, and the result is a new party in each
' instance. Even Jos Smith tries his hand at or.
e ganizing a National party, and is nominated foi
" President. At our late intensely contested Elec
tion, we had five regular tickets in onr City
Whig. Loco, Native, Agrarian, and Abolition
\ Who does not see that or.3 result is inevitable?
- that the enlightened and con?cientiou? are divided
and scattered by their various aims end pu-po^es,
the mere seekers of 1 Spoils' secure an ea*y vie
tory? The more partes shill be multiplied the
l m?TO those who take up pjlitics as a tr^-dc wi'l
t be sure to have it all their own way. Hence is
^ it that the Albany Ar^us and other journals ol
? its clas9 8j steadily Br:d earnestly fern the etnbert
1 of Political Abolition. Right well doe6 the Ar.
, gns understand that any third party based on
|j convictions of Moral Duty mu?t natu ally draw
? ten recruits from the Whig ranks to every one
taken from the other side. Thus the right always
' buffers by these eccentric parties. Had there
f never been an Abolition party in this State,
I Henry Clay would now ba the President elect ol
l the Union. Had Nativism never broke out into
' a patty organization, the like beneficent result
? would have I een inevitable.
! The reflecting portion of our People must g've
r heed to this matter. There ere always strong
. personal interests impelling to the formation ol
new parties. However local and temporary a
r new party may prove, there are veiy many who
? hope to gain and are sure they cannot loose there
? by. How mariy a patriot will borrow little
' trouble about the effects on the Nation's well-be
r ing, so Jthat he secures a snuff birth thereby ??
1 Friends of Good Government and Prosperity'
I beware of any pirty which does not prefess to
[ keep these ends steadily in view '
?But wc have another, and very serious, ob?
jection to tlie 1 American Republican' party oi
i our day, based on its unmistakable tendency to
i dabble in the bitter waters of sectarian controver?
sy, and nse Religious prejudices as a means of
acquiring Political power. We like this neither
better nor worse becaute it is the Roman Catholic
Church which i9 the object of the Native party's
relentless hostility and unsparing vituperation
We have no particular liking to that Church, and
i our fuith differs as wirfely from its creed as a com
mon Christianity will permit. Wc arc not im?
pressed by its ceremonies, and have very rarely
f daikencd the doors of any of its churches. But
. perfect Religious Liberty is a birthright we can
. never peaceably part with, and whoever is its
assailant, wc stand on the defence. When the
, members of any communion arc disfranchised or
1 subjected to ignominy on account of their faith,
[ we feel that a vital compact h?.s been broken and
i our rights endangered. What we demand for the
f Catholic WC demand aloe, for tho Jow and the
h Infidol, as well as for all Protestants?perfect
I Immunity from annoyance or reproach on account
of their Faith. If any one shall fall into trans.
, gresiion, punish his fault, not his faith. Religion
i can gain nothing, the Public Weal must suffer
much, if wc suffer a war to he successfully prose,
cuted on any class or communion whatever.
And, while wc deprecate all intermingling of
Religious differences with Political controversy,
we deem this peculiarly unfortunate in the caxu
, of the Ronmn Catholic Church. The mass of
the members of that Church among us are apt
enough naturally to be clannish, and distrustful
of our people of different creedj?this is certain
to render them more so. They generally come
among us ignorant, and their minds aro toun
rilled by demagogues with bitter prejudecs; this
is directly calculated to deepen those prejudices
and render their ignorance perpetual. All that is
cvii and dangerous in the character popularly at?
tributed to tho larger portion of our Irish and
Gorman Catholic population is certain to be ag
gravated, while what is good there will be over
borne and perverted by a Native American cru?
sade again*; them.
Yet once again : wo arc not satisfied with the
post,ion into which Nativism tends to force the
Catholic Church. Think of that Church well or
ill as you may, it seems to us that no student of
hisiory, no deep observer, can regard an alliance
with ultra Jacobinism and scoffing Infidolily at
all natural to it. On the contrary, the Catholic
Church is by its iustincts, its traditions, its struc
turo, eminently Conservative in i's character and
tendencies. And, though but partially Conserva?
tive ourselves, wc feel the necessity, in iLia sgc
of incessant Agrarian upheaval and Radical con.
vulsion, for something which holds fest?some?
thing which opposes a steady resistance to the
, fierce spirit of Change and Disruption. The
: Cathulic Church?we speak of the organism, and
not of its individual members?ought to be an
: element of Conservative strength in our land;
instead of which it is popularly supposed?and
with apparent reason?to hear the other way.
The Ely Moores, R. D. Owens, McNultys, &c.
' obtain honors and power by means of an almost
' unanimous Catholic vote. This should be oth
? erwise.
?We have not set forth all the considerations
' which impel us to oppose the ' Native American'
1 movement, and especially any merging of the
Whig party therein. We might gain by such a
step a fear unreliable allies, who would desert us
' in the hour of need, but we should lose more than
we gained, and those we lust would never come
back to us. Test this by the case of our City:
Here was a Native party started by Loco-Fccos,
and at its first trial taking a large minority of its
I vote* from that side. Tue next time it obtained
. some 10,000 votes from that side, whilo the
Whigs, including many not Natives, gave thai
' ticket 15,000 votes. Here seemed the firm c? m.
I mencemettt of a solid and powerful party. But
j its next trial wis at our last Election, when the
anti-Native Whigs voted almost entirely for the
Native Assembly tickot as the only anti.Texas
. ticket they could elect, and the ticket which
would bring votes to them on the main issue.
They confidently expecteJ, a- i were encouraged
to expect, a-Native vote in turn which would
send the Clay Elector out of the City from Two
to Five Thousand votes ahead, which w?u!d
have secured his Election. But what was the
reaiiit? ilaif the Loco-Foco Natives of April
abandoned their own ticket and went batk to
Trtmmany Hall; half the residue voted for Polk
and Dallas Electors with the Native local ticket;
e colls were not watched and illegal votes re
! jeeted, as We had been promised ; and, wine the
INatives cured all they wanted, but on* Con
gre : man, the W hfcs were cheated every way,
and sent out of the City nearly Two Thousand ,
behind?3,500 on Governor. While Wbi* elec-1
tior.eerera were crowding Native County ballots i
into the Iiann's of many reluctant bte'.hren, the ?
Nativ's were handing out Clay or Polk Elector?,
and Filhnore State tickets with eruire impar-j
tislitr 1 Nay, the Wright votrs were pushed oft j
? > adroitly by some of the Loco Native tlistnLa- j
tore as to push. W right far ahtad, and greatly j
swell the majority against Fillmore ! While we j
were losing thousands of votes every where cn |
account of our alleged Nativism, wc gained
nMhin.r here, and actually want out of the City
worse beaten than usual!
So much for profit and loss. The Natives take
all and wc get nothing. They might have jiven
us the State and the Union ; they chose to serve
their own ends and leave us high and dry on the
shoals. And now, shall we try this over o^ain ? |
If you like it and think it advisable, you will do
so ; but if you feel like some silly countrjman
who has been decoyed into seme disreputable
haunt, had his clothes and money stolen: and
then been kicked into the street, ycu will think
twice before jou consent to tail on to the great
Native P'ocesson to marrow to celebrate their
victory in onr City. You will see quite as well
a little way off.
[Extract.] Philadelphia, .\ev. 9,18+1.
There is a rumor that bfov. Sorter is now in
this city?that he refuses m sign the return of
electors?that gror-s frauds have b;en discover
ed in Berks and Perry Counties.
What is the reason the bick Counties in this
State are kept back in their returns ?
ET Wo hope Porter will do nothing of the
kind. If the New-York returns could be set
aside for the monstrous frauds which gave Polk
a nominal maj'-rity, we should rejoice at it, for
^Jew-York is honestly for Clay; but Pennsyl?
vania, we think, has given Polk a fair majority.
It is high time that some check should be given
to the abominable frauds which are practiced
from year to year in our closely contested Elec?
tions. It is commonly understood that a msjor
ty of votes in the boxet?, no matter how fraudu?
lently obtained, secures an Election. Let us
have an end of this.?Ed.

Boaton At'.as thr>t Henry B Stanton, one of the
leaders of the self-styled Liberty Party, has been

Dr. Pise'a Lectures.
The introductory of a series of lectures, contem?
plated to embrace and illustrate the differential
points of doctrine at iesue between the Protestant
acd Catholic churches, was delivered by Rev. C.
C. Pise, D. D. on Sunday evening last in St. Peter's
Church, Barclay street. It was remarkable for that
beautiful combination of charity towards the faith
of others and championship of his own which are
characteristic of all his doctrinal expositions. The
propositions of the lecture, as announced by him,
embraced three subjects which are just now of op?
posite and sensitive interest?Sectional Intolerance,
Popular Prejudice and Dogmatic Misreprsaenia
tion. On the first, he commented energetical?
ly but moderately on the assertion that tho Ro?
man Catholic faith is incompatible with the exis?
tence of free institutions; taking incidental occa?
sion to say " those who know me know that these
lcciurcs are conducted with a respectful deference
to the opinions of ihose who differ from me," and on
the character of Catholicity as regards toleration,
he. alluded mcst happily to the submission of Catho?
lic Belgium to be governed by n Protestant King?
to 1'oland, Prussia, and the fact that England, im?
mediately alter the Reformation, was the gr?at lead?
er of Church and State alliance in the person oi
H eury V1IT. Tho second subject was treated with
admirable skill and delicacy and perfect adapted
nes8 to the circumstances?the animus and need of
the present so untranquil times. The subject of
Dogmatic Misrepresentation elicited n line display
of historical learning applied with most scholar?
like and logical effect to tho Rer. gentleman's con?
clusions. As nn introductory lecture it was high?
ly ir.teieating and doubtless gave much satisfaction
to the crowdfd and respectable audience who ar
tended it. Dr. Pise ie an eloquent and popular
preacher and will lecture cgaiu on Sunday evening
next in the some place.
?Religious Controversy, in view of the present
condition of the School Uuesticn, Nativism, See. is
morally certain to engross much attention in our
City during the ensuing winter. We shall endsa- j
vor, therefore, to give some account of the Dis?
courses of our most eminent Divines, so far as we
can do so without offending any of our readers or
trenching upon the space needed for other uses.
The Fine Arts.?The public and our friends
g?nerally are not aware of the extensive Callery of
Ancient Paintings nod Marble Statuary which is
now open for exhibition, admission tree, tatH*. (Jrn- j
nite Building, 231 Broadway?entrance in Broad?
way?and which are to be sold at auction next
Wednesday. This collection is very extensive, and
it is unquestionably the most magnificent exhibition
of the kinJ that has everb.'-en presented in this city.
Many gentlemen of taste and judgment in the fine J
arts, who have visited this collection, expressed
their surprise at the richness and merit of this gal?
lery, and acknowledge that this collection is one to
which no parallel has as yet been offered in our
community, and to which no one is likely ever again
to be. In fact, our space wilt not permit of a mi?
nute description?they need only to be viewed to be
appreciated. We would call the attention of the
amateurs of the fine arts, and those who wish in or?
nament their houses, nut to lose this opportunity.
Don't forget, the en'rance is on Broadway.

ed this evening at half past seven o'clock. As
these Lectures will be free, those Students who
wish to study this particular and necessary branch
of their profession, would do well to attend.
Another Hurricane?Loss of Life and De.

Western Expositor, printed at Independence, in
j Jackson county, Missouri, that a destructive
hurricane visited that section of the State about
9 o'clock of the night of tho 25th. Its effects
wero lamentably disastrous. That paper says :
It carse across tho prairie three miles from
Westport, which is irjured considerably, from
whence it passed over our country in a north
I east direction, striking the river about half amiie
ab.ive Wayne citv. at C. N. Hail's mill, and we
h?ve heard of its keeping djwn die river for some

Trie New-York Gallery of Fine Arts.
This losti'utic.-i, which is destined to becom*- an
honor and an ornament to ibe ta?te and Intelligence
of this City, is now peraiaiient!y orptnired under
the superintendence of a large number of our most
respectable, citizens. It has been formed from the
valuable collection uf the late Lttmaa Reed, Esq.
whose txe rtioDs in promoting end encouraging a
teste fcr the Fit-e Arts in this City and Country de?
serve the gratitude of nis countrymen.. Mr. Read's
ejection is one of the fine ?t in this country. After
his decease several of his friends thought it n fitting
opportunity to purchase this collection for the pur
Pu.ce of fanning a nucleus for a permanent Gailcry;
knd with that view, they called on thr.ir fellow-citi
2.K03, who immediately subscribt d a svilicienl ram
to make the purchase
From thi? time forward New-York City will net
be without a pzrrr.ww ? ^\lcry of Painting?, and
one indeed of which our citi-ens may well be proud.
The collection embraces every vnriety of subject,
and the merit of the works i-i such as to compare
with any collection ever exhibited in this City. The
Gallery is at present cpcn ia the rooms ol" the Na?
tional Academy of Design.
We have ?nly time ?; present to notice some ol
the faintiag? in the collection. At a future time
we may give a more extended notice.
The chi-f attraction of th? collection i3 Cole's mag?
nificent series ofli The Course of Empire " These
pictures (tike in number) are pronounced the great?
est works this arii*t ever produced. The first repre?
sents Man in his Ravage state; the second, the Pas?
toral life; the third, the greatness and power ?f Em?
pire; the fourth, its Destruction by War and Ripice;
and the fifth and lest, its Desolation. The whole a. e
admirably conceived anl executed. The labor and
thought the nr'ist bestowi d upon them ic their exe?
cution must have been immense. Every time the
spectator examines them he finds something new;
indeed, it would take daily vi-its for months to fully
comprehend all they contain.
No 33 " The Truant Gambler*" and No. i>2
" Bargaining" by MoiWT have ever beeu esteemed
the be?t works this artist aver produced. There is
a delicacy of finish, a troth of expression and hap?
py selection of subject that cannot be surpassed in
works of this character.
No. 42. " The Stranded Ship." by DciUNO.ts a
picture never before exhibited; the sun eettinz .ver
the datk b!u? sea just alter c storm, hed the lonely
vef3el bearing her sides to the angry wnves, is a
sublime sieht.
Mr. Durand has several other fine pictures in the
collection. The " Dunce on the Battery"?"Peter
Sluytesant" and " The Pedlar," aie ad fine sp ci
mens ot this r.rtist's works.
No. lC is a c^-pitnl Landscape bj Hcntinoton?
full of natural beauty, being ao honest reprcaeata
ticn of a truly American eeene.
" Lady Jane Grey preparing for Execution"
and " The Princes in the Tovrer," together with
the M Match Girl,'' are among Mr. Flagg's earlier
and best works. The latter haa been often taken
for a painting \ y Murilio. Her forlorn, desponding
look awakens the sympathy of all who behold it.
No. 51, " A Sibyl,'" by H. P. Gray,is beautifully
colored, and in tone sirongly reminds one of some
of the best productions of the Venetian school.
An original picture l>y F. W. Edmonds, styled an
11 American Boy's Inheritance," is u subject that
come3 home to every New-EnglamW. A youth
setting out in life, with nothing but his mother's
prayers and his sisters' tears, is a scene too fre?
quently realized by the enterprising sons of the East.
No. 74, " The Day Dream," by C. C. Iniiha.v,
is a sweet thing;?&c. dec.
In addition to these by American artists there are
several fine Pictures by deceased foreign artists.
" Dogs Fighting" by Morland is one of the best
specimens of this master?and No. 13, " the Hunts?
men's Tent," by Fyt, is a rare and valu ible picture.
We have seen many of Snyder's pictures but none
surpassing this.
The portraits ol the Presidents arc of great value,
and were collected by the late Mr. Reed at great
expense. He employed Mr. Durand to visit Wash?
ington, Boslou and other places to give him the
most faithful copies of the deceased Presidenls, and
the some artist to paint from life those of John
Quincy Adams and Gen. Jncksnn. Nor should we
omit to mention (he head of lyifayelle presented to
the Academy by the artist C. C. Inohak. This is
the original head painted from Lafayette himself

Her Majesty's Aviary at Windsor ; Inter
esti.ng Fact to Naturalists.?The following
singular and rare (if n"t unique) occurrence has
just taken place at the Royal aviary in the Home
Park, Rt Windsor. It having been dicmed ad.
visable by Mr. Wallers, the superintendent of
her Al^iesiv's aviary, in order to imomvc the
breed of the genuine d?.t;?B fow|f thdt ft ahfju,d
be crossed with that ol the Cochin cuiua n^i,
the necessary arrangements were made for that
purpose. A Dorking hen, which had roostcc far
s nie time past with the fowls from China, has
recently been in the habit of laying twice, and
Njnietimcs thrice a week, eggs containing Couble
or two dietinet yolks. (Vir. Walters, deiermining
to try the experiment of attempting to ha?ch one
of these d'iuD'e yoiked eggs, pl-ced it, with sev?
eral other eggs untrer ihe hen. The resul was
that two chickens were p-odttced from thie tingle
egg ; one is a cock bird of the pure Cue in r'hina
breed, and the other is a hen chick of the Dork?
ing species, both of which arc now five dava old
and in good health. This is a circums-anse, as
we are informed, unprecedented in the anools of
natural history.
Improved Fahmino a Virginia.?Mr. H. R.
R-ibty, near FredcncUburg, Va. gives osthefoL
lowing favi.rabie account of the effect of agricul?
tural piipers in improving the husbandry of h s
neighborhood : " When I commenced firming, I
d<t?rmined to try the new system of husbandry,
becau=c I sa^v the old plan would not do ; the
farmers wore all going backwards, or getting
poorer every year t my new neighbors lt>ught.d
at me, when they six me occupying so much of
ray time in hauling mud and soda from the
swamps to put in my manure pile, and asked
where I got that notion from. My reply was,
from the Cultivator. They Iaughe'd still more,
and called me the book farmer; said I would
soon find out my folly and go back to the good
old custom, as tJicy call it. Many of those men
have acknowledged since that I have been pur?
suing the right plan. I have now eight barrels
of corn growing where six years ago onebarr.l
could not be grown; and all my information has
oeen derived from agricultural papers. Some of
my neighbors for two cr three years past have
been taJtingihe Cultivator, and you can perceive
an improvement upon the farms already. They
are now not content to put up with the bare ne
coaaaries of life. A spirit r.f improvement seems
to have tiken hold of them ; they begin to cul
f.vntc improved varieties of fruit for market and
for their families ; thus adding profit and plea?
sure, where neither could be found before they
begt>.n to read agricultural papers " [Cultivator.

The following occurred in one of the towns of

a compound of rum ar d benevolence, ssppetite
and cunning, hinh and low depravity, such u
seldom comes to light.
*' Husband, what do ynu think I irnve done to.
day1" said Mrs. C to the keeper of a country
store, where the drunkard's " O be-joyful" wu
still sold, upon his return home to dinner.
" I cannot possibly tell, my dear; I dare my
something clever.
"Well, I never did such a thing before, but
the man looked t>o pitiful, I thought I would en.
croach upon your wardrobe a little, for once, is
I know you could well supply the poor creature'i
wants without any inconvenience to yourself."
" You have given uway one of my coat*, 1
suppose; hope you didn't muke a mistake, and
give my go-to nteettn-? one, did you ? "
" Oh, no ; I give away one of your shirta.
Hc said he'd none, and had called to beg one?
so I guvc him ono, and he went off as happy u
if I had given him a cow. I don't kr,ow when
I havo uecu such u smile of joy at so fmal! I
" Given a shirt! I should like to know who
tltcro is so poor as to be without a shirt. Old
Tom Jonca is the poorest creature I know of, and
I don't believe but he baa got a shirt, as poori
drunkard &?. he is."
"Tom Jones!?there, I don't believe hut it
was Jones; I have heard you describe him, arid
it was htm I know. He looked cunning, asd
that smile of his seemed to be half joy, half fat),
and if 1 was Irish, I should say the other half
Jfl effort;."
" Very likely it w^a Jones, for he has beenii
the store to.day."
" fins lie J and had he a short jacket on, and
holes in his pants, and miserable shoes without
et'ick nga ?"
Just so."
" Ho is the very man. Had ho a bundle, or
had he put his rhtrt on ? "
" He had a bot'le, as usual, but I saw no
bundle, and I did nut notice whether he had i
collar or not"
" His bottle! well, I hope you did not fill it for
him, for that would teem like I he story in lk<
paper lately, where the wile told the husband
sho would supply the drunkard's fmnily out ol
the house, as Jonr// as ho supplied the rum froQ
the store. Did you let him rmve any ? "
"Any what my dear, m .lapses or vinegar 7?
You have no objections io my selling bun any
thiny he w.l! piy lor 7 "
" Y?.s, I h tve, yt.ii know I have. I would not
