In those counties from which returns are not yet
received, (exclusive of ten towns in Erie county,
also to come in,) John Young, the whig candidate
for Governor, in 1846, received 88,065 votes; and
Dayton, the hunker candidate tor Lieutenant-Go
vernor, received w>,3o.r> votes, leaving about-i^uuu
barnburner votes not polled in the same counties.
It is probable that Taylor has received about the
same number of votes as Governor Young had in
the counties to be heard from, which, added to
those returned, would swell his vote in the State
to about 220,000. There are then about 108,000
votes to come in, supposing the vote to be a lull

ccunties, (included in our table,) remarks as follows
Til* fall returns from 19 counties, one third of the
State, show a reduction in the aggregate vate since
1844 of 18.360. General Taylor's vote is 8.769 leas than
Mr. Clay's vote in these eeunties The vote tor Gea.
Cass and Mr. Van Bureu Is 4,620 less than Mr. Polk's.
In these 10 oounties, Gea. Taylor's vote exceeds the
joint vote of Cass and Van Buren, 1,620. But this
proportion probably will not hold in tbe remaining
eounties. The probability is, that tbe aggregate vote
will b*|reduced in a greater proportion ; that General
1 aylor's vote will not equal the other two; and that

The following statement and remarks from the
tichtuond Ttmet, of Wednesday, l"?th instant,
!1v?#b, in a condensed form, a view ot the Presidential
election in Virginia. The ten districts,
'rom the 1st to the 10th"inclusive, are m Eastern i
Virginia, and the five other districts are west of
he mountains. Taylor's greatest gains have been
in the Westers counties, and had the whig counties
oi the Eastern part of the State done as well
is the democratic Western counties, he would
have carried the State handsomely. As it is, Cass
and Butler have, probably, a small majority :?
The good news received, yesterday, from "Little
Tennessee" was almost enough to revive the hope
of Virginia's having voted for Taylor and Fillmore.
But, according to our addition*, the gain yet falls
too much below Mr. Polk's majority to allow us to
expect that the returns still to come in will cancel
the remaining excess.
The following table exhibits the majorities as
far as ascertained in the Congressional districts:?

Still to be overcome 821
In the counties still to be heard from, the popular
vote in 1844 was about 7,000. A gain of 822
in this number is hardly to be expected.
The seventh district which now gives, according
to the Times, a majority of 508 for Taylor, is
the one formerly represented by Mr. Wise, who
is on the Cass and Butler electoral ticket, and
took the stump lor them. The district elected
Bayly, democrat, to Congress last year, by 210
majority. In 18-10 it gave majority of 1,522 for
Harrison, and in 1844 Mr. Clay's majority in the
district waa 447.
The ten districts East of the mountains, give
Gen. Taylor a majority of 1,560. In 1844, Polk's
majority in the same districts was 497?showing
a gam for Gen. Taylor in the Eastern section of
the State of 2,067. Ilis gains at the West are in
a much greater ratio.

are now iu possession ot, our net gain is 5,001. Necessary

The Anticipated Knru|i<an llcrutalon In
[From the London Morning Chronicle. Oot. '20.]
The vicissitudes to which trade is liable are 3
more extensively felt as the ramifications of mercantile
intercourse spread themselves over a wider
and wider area. The commerce of the world is
not now pent up in a multitude of lakes, each

local disturbing causes which may from time to j.
time ruffle the surf aces of the rest; it la an ocean, n
the waters of which are everywhere at the same
level, and the ebb and flow of which leave their ll
tide marks on every coast. Drop in a stone, and a
the undulation runs off in widening circles, rip- n
phng even the land-locked [Kiols which indent the j
remotest shores of tne vast expanse. The failure t
of a merchant in New York may occasion the c
bankruptcy of others in Calcutta; ltio and Arch- {
angel. The King of Denmark cannot come to c
blows with his Majesty ot Prussia without taking t
money out of the pockets of the shipowners of i
Sunderland and Dundee. The dishonesty and i
unthriftiness of a single partner in a sincle com- t
mercial house may involve the ruin of half a i
dozen other houses in different regions of the I
world; and the revolutionary frenzy of the inha- i
bitants of one great country, whilst it causes their i
trade to stagnate, their pros|>erity to wither, and i
their wealth to evaporate, extends also its blight- \
ing influence to other lands, where the reign of ]
social order continues undisturbed, and the poll- i
tical atmosphere is unclouded and serene. i
The melancholy reflections in which a New 1
York contemporary is pleased to indulge, touch* <
ing the depression under which the trade of the i
United States is at present laboring, are but the
echo of complaints which, owing to the cause t? i
which we have been alluding, periodically arise i
from every quarter of the commercial world. I
'It is our intimate connection," says the JVeio
York Htrald, " in all financial and mercan- |
tile matters, with the old world, that is destroy- i
ing our prosperity, and inflicting upon us evils i
lrom which we shall not recover very soon. I
Our domestic affairs have, for a long time, been i
in a healthy condition; our productions have

wealth have been properly husbanded; but the
state of affaire in Europe has tended more to depress
prices for our products than anything that
lias transpired within our own limits. Whatever
affects the consumption of our products abroad, depreciates
prices for all that we have on hand. Oar
products and manufactures are valued at about
$2,000,000,000, of which only about $100,000,000,
or one-twentieth part.Dis exported; and whatever
affects the value of the portion exported, affects
the value of the nineteen-twentieths reserved for
domestic consumption. We are thus at the mercy
of foreign countries. If anything of a political
nature transpires abroad, calculated to unsettle
the public mind, and destroy confidence, we feel
it through its influence upon prices for our products.
If a financial revulsion spreads over the
whole or any part of Europe, the markets for our
products are injured or destroyed, and immense
losses tall upon our merchants and producers.
We have to bear the brunt of every political, financial,
or commercial disaster, winch occurs in any
and eveiy part of the world.
"Great Britain is connected with every country
on the face of the earth, of any commercial importance;
and, consequently, through that country
we are nearly as intimately interwoven with the
commercial operations of the world. Great Britain
is such a large consumer of our staple products,
that we are deeply interested in her prosperity;
and it is, therefore, highly important to
us that everything tending to her progress and advancement
becomes settled upon a sound and
healthy basis. We have long deprecated the posi
uou we occupy reiauve io mm country. 11 is Humiliating
ana decidedly injurious to our most vital
interests. Willi greater resources, with more
elements of wealth within our limits than any
other nation in existence, we are absolutely dependent
upon the preservation of peace in even the
smallest power in Europe. We are rapidly extricating
ourselves from this thraldain, hut until we
are completely removed from the influence of foreign
aifdirs on our internal commerce, we shall
periodically experience all the fluctuations in
prices, ?fcc , which have, so far in our history,
marked our progress."
We nioH sincerely sympathize with the distresses
of our transatlantic brethren. We are heartily
sorry, not more for their sakes than for our
own, to hear that their prospects are so gloomy;
and if it be true, as it doubtless is. that their prosperity
follows on trie heels of our own, we fervently
nope that their difficulties may speedily disappear,
and that they may (with one exception) be the
richest, busiest, and most thriving people on the
face ef the earth. We enn assure them it is not oor

We will trv our very utmost to be as prosperous as
we can. We will do our best, in the regular way
of business, to fill our pockets with money. We
will take advantage ot every symptom of the revival
of commercial activity on the Continent, and
avail ourselves of every opportunity of extending
our export business, ana tempting our alarmed and
impoverished customers to lay out their hoarded I
francs and florins at our shop. We will undertake .
to buy every ounce ot cotton, by the manufacture
of which we have a fair prospect of turning a '
penny. We will take care to swear in a sufficient I
number of special constables the next time that |
there is any danger of our being hurnedtin our !
beds. N?v. we think we nrp pntitleA in ?nmp
little credit on that score already. Have we not
remained sober and orderly in the nudat of an
uproar and hurly-burly that might hive set the I
coolest heads in a whirl? Has the revolution in
England gone further than the pillage of a baker's 1
basket, and the smashing of a plate-glass widow ?
Have we not sent our red republicans to the hulks,
and snufied out a rebellion in Ireland? What, we
may ask, would have been the consequences to
American trade, hud the cargoes which in March
and April could find no buyers at Havre been as
ruefully and hopelessly declined at Liverpool 1
What would have been the value of this year's
cotton crop, if Proconsul Maggs, armed witli unlimited
powers by Citizen CufTey, Provisional Minister
of the Home Department, were now presiding
over the Chamber of Commerce at Manchester?
The shock of the revolution was felt, no
doubt, in the counting-h6use of the American
trader, but who knows how tar its numbing force
was lestened by its being transmitted, not directly
from the disturbed countries, but mediately through
its effect on the English markets ?
But whilst we admit that the American jour;
nalist has accurately represented the connection

couutlets threads of commercial inter-dependence
w hich knit his country to its Euro|>ean customers,
and to make the broad expanse ot the Atlantic, in 1
place tf being, as it now is, the grrat highway of :
international trade, a veritable gulf of separtion 1
between the Old World and the New. The

nains now to transfer the Assembly into a legis- ,

carted with a portion of the power; and to move

uid in enacting the organic laws, as they are now

ion, and in accord with the President, so far as ]
:hey have given him any power in the matter. I i
s now said that the government has recommended,
md the committee adopted, the 10th of December
is the day to vote for a President, and it remains
!or tins Assembly to decide when its own body
shall be dissolved, and another one chosen in its
>Iace. I see no provision in the constitution fixing
hat period, and therefore it is a matter of great
jnceitainty how soon, or when, the men now in
,'ower will abandon it to their successors. The
only names now spoken of for the oflice of Presi- ,
ient, are ( leneral Cavaignac, Louis Napolean, Lamartine,
and llaspail. There will, probably, l?e
others; but these are now the only ones upon which
the public mind is dividing. I
A remarkable scene occurred a day or two since (
in the Assembly, which drew out the most raptu- 1
rons applause upon the head of M Cavaignac.
GJeneral Lebreton, in sneaking of the army, said,
n reply to some remarks, that it was never dan- ,
eerous to liberty, except when advancements were i
made from choice, favoritism, or companionship, i
alluding to the appointment of Gen. Lamonci^re '
by Geu. Cavaignac, as Minister ol War; and to j
Buch appointments as Oeneral Lamoriciere. The
Assembly were astonished at these remarks; for !
General Lebreton is a brave and gallant otlicer, ,
and was wounded in the days of June in Paris.
Rni?roli!?vimrnnc sittinrr in hinseat. remarked.
" what does aiTthat mean V When General Lebreton
had finished, General Lamericiere repelled
any accusations against himself of the character
charged, and demanded an investigation by the
Assembly. As soon as he had left the tribune, Gen.
Cavaignac ascended it. and said, Gen. Lauwricitire
has done only his duty, and has my full approbation
j and, turning te General Le&reton, he
raid : "And 1 am astonished that you, sir, who
have been an eye-witness to the conduct of General
Lamoriciere in Algeria, for the last five years,
should see, in his advancement, only chance or
favoritism." Here there was tremendous applause
; and then General Cavaignac further exclaimed?"
And I am most astonished, that he j
should be in the second range, while I am in the 1
first." At thin, the excitement exceeded all
bounds?the approbation was immense, and the 1
Assembly adjourned. It is necessary to under- 1
ttana the character of the French, under the
pressure of the present sta'e of public affairs, to
arpi eciate fully the force of such events.
The son-in-law of Nicholas is still in Paris, as
a special envoy ftom Russia to France ; but the
purpose of his mission is yet a State secret. The
Emperor has a great regard for General Cavaignac?the
manner in which he fought the insurgents
mi June, and Ins straightforwardness in his
diplomotic relation, please the autocrat, who
never was on good terms with Louis 1'hilippe ;
he never would trust the latter. The banquets,
democratic and social, are getting to be very frequent
in all the different divisions in France ; and

themselves, and one or the other party refuses to
attend. Were these men to come into power, they
would fight among themselves the first hour, and
blood would run in their own ranks. The election
of President will develope the full strength of
this party, and perhaps put the Constitution to
its fiirht great test; yet if the life of the President
is tpaied, 1 think that fie lias the capacity and
force to meet the occasion ; and I doubt whether
it will be made the occasion of much blood -shed,
lor the eocialists do not want again to lose either
the field or stret ts against the present head of the
government. The lesson of June is not yet lost
upon them; but they wish to break down, by side
blows, ihe present administration, and then fight
its successor in the streets. Several new presses
were announced to appear since the removal of
the state of lien. ?td) Sunday morning, two or
three legions of the National Guards are reviewed
on the Place Ca-ousel, who make a fine ap|>earance.

Presidtntial Candidate*?M. Marratt ami hit
Sviiees?Democratic Banyutlt?Provisional Government.
Lfdru Kollin is a formal candidate for Presiden.
<y of the French Republic. 1 consider that
bis nomination will embody the force of the
red republic, but will not include the socialists,
who will give their support to llaspail,
the man in the dungeon. I am not certain
that Proudhon will not be a candidate, who is one
sten more in the extreme doctrines than M. Itrapail.
He finds as much fault with the red republic
and the extreme left, as being too f ?r in the
rear, as do the left with the right for the same
offence. There has recently transptred^a general
separation between the leaders of the red republie,and
the socialists, and Proudhon separates himself
distinctly from both. I consider Proudhon
insane. Hi? pamphlet, just published, indicates in?a/\
?a ka ufoll miot'jlr?n Mnno knt
a de ranged intellect could write such a jargon of
ideas. According to hia plan, society would be
worse than anarchy. It would he a Babel. Satan
himself could not devise a more glorious state
of confusion and crime to preside over. Raspail
has more senEe,I believe, and has some respect for
the existing state of things. The character of
Raspuil is more important than that of Proudhon ;
and he will probably leceive more votes than even
Ltdru Kollin?-pethaps more tliun General Cavaignac
himself. The election will take place the
10th ol December, and the difierent reunions of
the members of the National Assembly are preparing
to bring forward theircandidates. It is uow
the absorbing question in Pans, and soon will occupy,
exclusively, the public mind in France. No
fnnn can be elected by ihe |>eople, unless he has
2,000,000 of votes, antl the majority over all. Napoleon
may reach it; at present his chance appears
to be the best. The right can give General
Cavaignac a large vote, if tney will; but in the
present state of the foreign as well as domestic
affairs of France, a single developement, or a day's
debate, may change all his pros.iecU. A recommendation
of war, four weeks hence, against
Austria, for the aggrandisement of Italy, supported
by the fact that Austria refuses to give
independence to Lombardy, wo;ild carry General
Cayaignac into the Presidential chair, probably;
while a developement of the correspondence upon
that subject, should it not meet the expectations of
France, would crush him instantly. Possibly the
determination to elevate Napoleon may be strong- j
erthan I antici|>ate, and sufficient tu elect him, !
under any circumstances. By the decision of the j
Assembly,.yesterday, M. Marrast has made his '
loiritt at his own expense, or those of his creditors,
rather than at that of the State. The members
have danced by his music, and drunk his
wine, and now refuse to vote the money of the
State to pay it; they even refused to consider the
question. Then the committee had reported an
exlra sum of 6,000 francs per month, when the original
is but -1,000?four months, at <>,000 extra, is a
question for M. Marruct's extras. M Marrast iud
his friends have lived and grown fat under the
republic; and I think things are aliout to t ike a
turn somewhat against them. M. Marrast's
accounts, as Mayor of Paris, are not yet audited,
tnd I expect never will be. Ix-dru Kollin demanded
yesterday the most minute examination,
l.ya speciil committee, of the accounts of the
1'iovisional Government, and of his own in particular,
as Minister of Foreign Aflairs, which w;is
a warded, alter a keen debate. He puU on a bold
ln.i.t n > to Ins nffiiinln whrlliHr ih* rt>unlr will
or will not nistify it. But it is to the credit of the
Provisional Government that they carried on the
government ninety days, during tne whirlwind of I
a revolution, without any forced loans, tfeueof paper
mom y, or substantial denial of payment. The
tient-ury whs nearly ? mpty when it came to their
hands; and I believe they left it quite as well as
il'? y received it, though the public debt hud probably
been increased. Complaint is made of the
million expended in the grand military review;
but that cost Irs* than would a fight in the streets
ol I'uris, which this review did much to deter, il
net to prevent. The Minuter of the Interior, is
to-dny 'o be interrogated in reference to the banquet
w hich took place in Passy, at which several

toasts were pretty violent. These banquets will t
