" The excitement consequent upon the Penn sylvania election has never been equalled hi the history of the United States. Both parties have claimed the Victory, and though the vote is close, there can be no longer doubt that in the number of votes counted the Democrats are some 5000 ahead.. . There can be no doubt that an immense fraud has been perpetrated, and in fact evidence has al Teady been' produced that Pennsylvania has been carried by the same means used to car ry the elections in Kanzas by invasions from other States, also by ballot box stuffing as in California. l Had the purity of the bal- lot box been protected, the Unionists woule j , have carried the State.; , We are aware that it is natural for a defeated party to invent ex cuses for defeat, and undoubtedly , this in stance does not furnish an exception. Our readers will remember that the Democracy last year '' professed to have carried Wiscon sin by a large majority, but the matter went to the courts, the result of which was the spurious votes were rejected, and the Re- publican candidate elected by nearly 1000 majority. The spirit of slavery is ever ready to do any reckleaa set to sustain its rotten institution, and 'one of its mildest fowns is the corruption of the ballot box. Even in ' Pennsylvania; the pretended victory of the Democracy was not complete, till a large body of them, in great exhultation, had given three cheers for Preston S. Brooks ! If this spirit of ruffianism prevails in November, Fremont will of course be defeated, and the great contest between . Freedom and slavery postponed, for the slavery question can never be settled till H is settled right. Our readers are aware that WalkeT has set up a government in South America, which some time since proclaimed the abo lition of slavery there. SowiE.of La ,has re cently been down there, and now advices are that Walker has reveled that proclama . tion, and re-established slaveiy. .The South will undoubtedly graciously be ready to re ceive another Slave State. Mr. Buchanan favors the annexation of Cuba at all hazards and the South expect it as a Slave State as a matter of course..' Whether the North are sufficiently 'aroused to put down these evil machinations will be proved in November." In Ohio the Republicans have prevailed by a large majority, but the Fillmore men have succeeded in giving several Congress men to the Democrats. In Indiana the contest has been close, but the Democrats seem to prevail by about 5000 majority. We are glad to record the return of Mr. Colfax to the next Congress, and re gret that Mr. Cumback does not come-back. Throughout the free States the Enow Nothings, Democrats and Whigs are form- ine coalitions. - The catholic vote is with the pro-slavery Democracy, and yet the Fill- moreites join hands Villi this class of our copulation and thenjn holy horror cry out against the Catholics ! New outrages are again being perpetrated in Kanzas." Two hundred and fifty emigrants from the Western States, who were on their way peacefully to Kanzas, have been arrest ed by Gov. Geary ; jThey were men, wo- ' 1 I'll 1 1 I C . 1 I men ana cfliiareti, wno nan nrat ootainea Geary's leave to enter the territory, and yet they were arrested and all their effects taken from them. :. !

Rejoicings, Burning Tar, At, On Tuesday night of last weeky the re turns of the Pennsylvania election having come in decidedly favorable for the Democ racy, a few of the more faithful made a noc turnal visit "' about 3 o'clock,' Wednesday morning, to tie honorable editor of tha Ar. gu and H. E. Stocghto, Esrj., and after uevuig Men tnug hlnp,iT aronjpj from aa. ber, and partaken of . uninauUuualJe drinks.

( tablel complotely turned, the Republican! having pparently carried the State, and the Democ racy went mourning about the streets. On Friday the tune changed bark again, and the Democracy tried to enjoy doubtful tri umph. " ' ' ! In the early part of the evening, a Fill more man who bad something to nil, (we don't know what) got a crowd together in the street, and not making much headway in his sales, finally changed the programme to a political meeting, and thereupon made an Anti-Democratie and Anti-Catholic har rangue. He denounced the Democrats and Catholics, and asserted that Catholicism, Slavery and modern Democracy all went to gether hand in hand. This waa too much and too true, tor the unterrified, and there fore one of the leading Democrats privately exhorted the Irish in the crowd to throw clubs and brickbats at the speaker. But the Irish, much better than their adviser, de clined the brutal advice. The meeting finally broke up with three cheers for Fre mont and Freedom, and three groans for Catholic Democrats, and thereupon the De mocracy deemed it expedient to have an im mediate rally of the faithful Slavocracy, and the Band were all produced, except some who had gone to bed and would'nt get up, (for it was now past nine) and music and cheering were the order. Several squibs were firedini a distant part of the village. The democracy wisely claimed but a small majority, and fired guns accordingly. This crowd wanted to give groans for the Bellows Falls House, but " the extreme forbearance of the Democracy" prevented, and this feel ing finally found vent in " three cheers for cauld icalh-er." During this time some two or three tar barrels were kept in a blaze, and another crowd had collected on the portico of the Bellows Falls Hotel, and to wind up the whole performance, this crowd gave " three groans for Atkins," which act now seems to be sort of a benediction fur all political meetings in this place. ' ,-Tng Democracy still ok th Move.. A huge number of Democrats collected at the depot in this place on Tuesday morning. They were in from Westminster, Cambridge port, and from all other ports for " 15 miles around," preparatory to an excursion in an extra train to CharWstown to attend the " Wooly horse" Convention there. All things being ready, one solitary car left the depot freighted with 67 persons, including the Band, which being deducted, left just 40 solid Democrats, to compose the immense ar rival at Charlestown of the delegation from Bellows Falls. - t'f .v .

We had the pleasure of attending the meeting of this club on Fri day evening of last week, and were much pleased with its proceedings. This is not purely a political organization, and young men of all parties can become members. During the pretest season the political ques tions of the day have been discnased, but we hear it is the intention of the Club to take np subjects of a more literary tendency du ring the winter.' The subject on Friday evening was whether more danger was to be apprehended in our country from Boman Catholicism than from Slavery. The speech es by Messrs.

CornspODdraec of tb Timet. RCTLASD, Oct 18, 1856. Our little village was, yesterday, thrown into a state of excitement, by the arrival of a telegraphic despatch, from Burlington, that Col. Fremont bad taken passage in tb nu3 for New Yor, and would pas through here at one o'clork. .Although the notice wast very short, the new spread rapidly, and 'ere the appointed ' time, the depot was crowded with nien, . women, children, The Colonel left Sew York, Monday, stop- oed here over Monday niffht, and passed on p, Tuesday. He was accompanied by , Gen. tfames, of, Wiacoosfty and intended to travel irMtfnUo ; but the news leaked ont, at Burl- tngum, and som travelled along Uie wires, in this .direction He was take by sorprtae at his reception J'w n being aware that the newt ha1 prwded him. He was obliged to go through the Jarre of shaking hands, fcc, usual on such ccastons. What a bore it must be to a nun o modest, retiring dlspo- t itin, as Col. Froinont appears to be be- negfd in tbia manner , od to be obliged w ahake handa with every stranger or ragamuf Jin who presents himself, to say nothing of the kissing of old ladies and babies, which appears to come in as a matter of course. Its all very well, when a blooming, oherry lipped young damtel presents him her bill, to take advantage of his position, even if he does get Jessie for it ; but, as for kissing all the emluyo statesmen, and heroines, whose ambiiious mothers push up in his face, that is a different matter. ... , . ...Tbe Colonel is rather below the medium size, of a firmly-knit, wiry frame, with 1 keen dark grav eye, very affable in his de meanor, and well calclulated to win friends. . Quite a number, in their eagerness to see the next Frerident, were carried off in the train ; but were probably fully compensated by their ride through the beautiful scenery of the Western Vermont valley. I bad oc casion to pass over tbe Road, a few days since, and never in my life did I witness scene of such surpassing beauty. The moun tains rise on either side, to a lotty height, covered over with forests, jrorgeously color ed with all the hues of October, (this year peculiarly beautiful.) On my return some of Walter Scott's glowing descriptions were called vividly to my mind. . ..

' ' ' ' : ' Young Anierira. Tbe following should have appeared in ; our paper of last week, but the crowded state of our columns prevented. : At a meeting of the Young America Club on Friday ec, Oct- 10th, a committee were appointed to draft Resolutions expressive of our indignation in regard to our National Flag, which was ruthlessly cut down and trampled in the dust by person or persons unknown, on the night of the Democratic demonstration in this place, on the 9th inst. On Monday, the 13th, the following Reso lutions were presented before the Club, and unanimously adopted. Reaoteed, That we are lri favor of reform in the polu-y of our government as adminis tered bv Franklin Pierce. Resolved, That wc recognize in the great Republican or Fremont party, the party of the Union and Constitutional Freedom. Resolved, That in the cutting down of our National Flag, we recognize " Democratic principles in their practical application. " It is but carrying out the principles of the Ostcnd Manifesto as promulgated bv James Buclianan & Co., and approved ot in the Cincinnati Platform. It is but the applica tien of the seme principles which developei itself in the destruction of Greytown by our present Democratic Administration in the striking down of Free speech in the Ameri can Senate by a murderous assault upon the person of Chas. Sumner, which act was ap proved of by a majority of the Democratic party in the Union in the stifling of free speech in Kanzas in throwing free presses into the river in taking possession of the Ballot Box by armed forces in the enact ment of cruel, tyraniral and pretended laws in the attempt to enforce those pietended laws by the strong arm of government in the battering down of Hotels, and in the burning of buildings in the arresting and imprisonment of free state men in Kanzas, for the obvious purpose of keepins tbem from aidine the freemen in tbe formation of a government of tUtir own choice in the murdering of free State men, and in the driving of others from the territory of Kan zas wiih U. S. bayonets all of which acts have been done under the auspicies of the present Democratic Administration, and ap proved of by the Democratic party. We see the application of the same principles in the acts of a large portion of the Democratic party in the present Campaign, threatening to " dissolve the Union," should the people's Candidate be elected. We see it in the .acts of the Democratic partv for thte last three years, the prominent ideas of which are to " rule or ruin." ' . Resolved, That whoever refuses to endorse the dastardly and cowardly act, should man ifest their disapproval by refusing in any way to aid or assist the pcrpetratois in eva dine merited punishment. Resnltred, That all good men should join is holding up the " perpetrators to the just scorn of the community," and he who at tempts to shield them and their conduct, or harbor, or in any - way akls or abets them, exposes himself to the contempt and "just scorn of the community." Resolved, That we do not condemn any man, or hold any man responsible for the cutting down of our Flag because he belongs to the Democratic party. We hold no man responsible any farther than the proof of his own acts, his conduct, and his words show a connection therewith, or a desire to screen them from detection and public justice. From the gcrinzfield Reoabficen. : i The Electoral Tickets in Penn ;.. sylvanla. , The Fillmore Americans in Pennsylvania are divided into two parties, one preferring Buchanan to Fremont, or having no choice, and the other willing to unite with the re publicans and North Americans to defeat Buchanan. The former, it now seems cer tain, voted with the Buchanan party at the recent election. Tbey now avow that they will support a distinct Fillmore electoral t ticket (already nominated) at the presiden ial election, and have voted to that effec '14 to 8, in the Fillmore state committee. If hey persist in this determination they will ut Buchanan's vote down below that of his . arty's State ticket last week. The minority of the Fillmore State com t nittee (!) are in favor of uuion with the 'remonters. and in consultation with the re- ablicans and North American Slate enm jittees have agreed to form a union eJecio al ticket against Buchanan, on which John -'. Fremont's name shall be printed in place of one of the electors i 'rS8 for the fricn,u of Fremont, and Mr. Fillmore's name for those who prefer Mr, Fillmore, with the un derstanding that the electors, if choson, shall cast their votes for Mr. Fremont, if, as is of . i ... am niM on the erurse certain, na gei m'' ticket than Mr. Fillmore, na vlc" TC These elements of union against Buchan an are substantially those which were true to the union State ticket, and it is obii all who voted for that ticket will vote in November for the- union electoral ticRet Arid m this atrenuth the reserved vote, in cluding a large number of Quakers, all cer tain for Fremont, and those numerous dem ocrats, including Germans, who, while voting with the Buchanan party at the State elec tmn u,ni vt. for Fremont for president, and we have an improvemsntof tbe anti-Buchanan strength, which, with the lessening of tl. direct Buchsnan vote by the stra.gnt ... more diversion, and the direct charge, to Fremont, certainly I"''8 ,n U ktf m .(. .f,r, democratic candidate. At , .i.. ;. iwe enough in these con siderations to overcome all the supremacy of the Buchanan Stata ticket m an aggregate vote of 400,000, and to place tl.e result in i it4rii dmibt. m . 1,1 , nonvention at Harris- burcr. to-morrow, to r the anti-Buchan ,n nninn .Wtoral ticket ; and its t. lends are full of hone, courj -e ! determination for th. Nrtvmhe sTIiest They have been cheated once they M i"1 wnnot aaain. Thouuh we have not cormdence in the superior policy of nion or coalition, where nearly all the partias to it must by this time be on one side, d that is for Fre mont, and alt must see tlu' it is for him and him only that the tkket II cast its vote, if chosen, and would rather see the ticket pre sented, as reallv is, a!rue Fremont ticket. We have no right to danbt that the friends of republican freedom in Pennsylvania are pereuing the best coJrae for their State. They ought to know beat whether calling their ticket a on'on Fillmore and Fremont ticket will thus ft more votes from Ameri cans than it wil 'drive off ultra-American democrats andl ferinans. Were there more time to present he claims of Fremont and his cause to the leoplo of Pennsylvania, we should certain!; decide against the course that seems to it taken bv the common con sent of the frieids of republicanism there for we believe Jremont is the strongest just where he standi most independently in his personal popularity, and the single i.sue of opposition to tie administration for its re peal of the Missouri Compromise and violent enslavement of Kanzas, and the people un derstand nnd t ipprtsiato both. Vermont, Iowa, Ohio and Maine, where scarcely the smell of Americanism remains in the repub lican movement, so thoroughly has it vindi cated its individuality and distinctive mer its, furnish abundant proof of this. But it is too late now to bring Pennsylvania up to this standard, though we believe that had tbe work '. been properly begun at the time Frerrtfni's nomination and followed np witb vigor since, thews would not now be a ques tion of her vote for him. And that numer ous body of her Americana, clinginsr even in part to Mr. Fillmore, who hold like views with the --.,l tipportrs of Fremont to wards the adiif-irtrationjand Mr. Buchan an, cannot at ilia hue day be disregarded with safety to th common cause of a repub lican reformation in the government of the nation. It is a step forward in the right di rection, however, to have the ultra-Fillmore Americans take ground independently and place themselves in sympathy with their brethren in other States, as the allies of slavery and the alii re democracy. Had they only stripped the mask off earlier there would be less danger of mischief from their efforts. The others are republicans at heart, and will be in name by and after N'lvomber, whatever the result then, for the contest be tween the barbaric and Christian elements of our civilization k only on its threshold now. Later Iroaal Kunane. Advices frora Nebraska City give furth er particulars of the recent arrest of emi grants frora the free states. The party num bered 850, including women and. children. Mr. EldraV.ge, their conductor, procured permissioa frimt Cov. Geary to enter the territory, with the ordinary arms of emi grants, being assured that the intentions of the party were peaceful. On arriving at Plymouth, tbe new Massachusetts settlement just over the Kansas line from Nebraska, on the 10th inst, fhey found deputy U. S. Marshal Preston, litb 700 troops acting as a posse and six pieces of artillery, drawn np to oppose their further progress. The mar shal odered them to bait and informed the whole party that they were prisoners. All their boxes, trunks and baggage were sereh ed and some kegs of powper were found, a keg of cartriiijifi belonging to the night guards, ten Sharpes' rifles, two dozen revol vers and a numW of common riflea belong ing to private iirf.iidusj. The troops then took possession af all the horses, wagons, baggage, farming utensils and a large quan tity of proviaioni, and ordered the whole party nndcr a gnsrd, with instructions to the troops to shoot anj who might attempt to es cape. The emipjnts were from New York, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, "Wisconsin and Iowa. , " Peaaeylvaiau . Th" official returns come in slowly ; they indicate the success of the Buchanan state ticket by not excelling 5,000 majority in a toial of some 400,000 votes ; but tbe precise result cannot be Kated at present Several congressional districts are still in doubt ; and there is substantially nothing to de added to the returns as published. ' ' The Newburyport Herald, an independ ent journal, with tendencies against Fremont puts the most orifa,0rahle view of a reason able mind upon the Pennsylvania election in the following remarks : " If the republican party waa as well set tled together and as well drilled, as the dem ocratic, they wonk) stand an equal chance now for the electoral vote of Pennsylvania. Then this defeat, if 'n is a defeat, and cer tainly it cannot be a very great defeat to any party, would not move them. Penn sylvania has frequently voted one way in state election, and tha reverse soon after. In 1840 the democrats carried the state by 4.649 majority, bnt h oted for Harrison by 349 majority. In ifj the two parties were so nearly tied that Johnston, whig, had but 302 majority, txi ifo j .niocnilic canal com m if sinner was elected the same day by 2.6SS majority , while Taylor carried it by more thru 13,000 the same year. The trouble to the rvpublicong is not that they have not carried the stats by 20,000, which was their estimate, nor yet that they anticipate the loan of it in November ; but that they are so im mature and so imperfectly constructed, that disaster is mote likely to be a total lo. They cannot, in other states, stand up against this rebuff, though in fact they have done better than such a party had a right to expect." The Philadelphia Times states that the Buchanan ciowd in front of tha Pennsylva nia office, on Thursday night, gave three cheers for Preston S. Brooks of South Caro lina. Nothing chuld have been more natur al than for the Buchaneers to about for the idol of the party they had done their beat to put in power. The hired ruffians who swelled up the vote of Philadelphia so much beyond its legal dimensions, were just the boys to cheer bully Brooks. VERMONT LEGISLATURE. - Monday, Oct. IS. SENATE.

From the St. Louie Mo., Intel tlrenrer of Oct 4. ' The greater part of yesterday, was occupied in the Criminal Court, witb the trial of Col. Calvin Townsley, James Felt, snd John Gil bert, for robbery, tvhicu resulted by their lieitij acquitted without the jury leaving the box These gentlemen are so well, known in our community, especially Col. Townsley. and bear such high character as honorable men, that the ease acquires an interest which it would not otherwise possess. A great many witnesses were examined, and to eive a full detail, wauld consume too much time and space, and we preler, therefore giving the facts proseu, in a narrative, just in the order in which they occurred : .... Some time in btst April, a man named Da vid S. Perry, applied to Mr. Bamum for a situation as steward of his liotel. representing himself as having bs. en robbed on his p -sage here, ami as bains then in destitute cir cumstances. Mr. K.irnuin did not employ him, but boarded hiea for some daystrrntis. Perry then got a situation on trial at tha Shanghai Restaurant on Chesnnt street, but Ihe mysterious appearance of a couple of five dollar countertvi't bills in the till during Ihe brief absence of the proprietor, was the means of losing him that situation in a few days. He received five dollars compensation for his services while there and had no money when he left, and jet he immadiately re deemed the two billn, on Mr. Thomas mak ing conilaini about them. He next obtained a situation with Col. Townaley, as purchaser of supplies for bis hotel, which we Iwlieve he bad for two or three months. The Colonel furnished him witb money in advance to make, the first purchases, and then at night (rave him an other sum, equal to what he had expended that day, and in this manner the accounts were settled every night At length it was discovered that be was purchasing things on Col. Townsley's credit and charging them tn his daily account as though he had paid for them, and drawling the money for them. Tbe Colonel then ordered his elerk not to settle with him any more, but to leave the matter lo him. A night or two after this, Perry spoke' to the porter of the hotel tellinif him that he was about to leave without notice, and re questing his assistance in the removal of his trunks about three o'clock at night. He also said that as smart a Yankee as Col. Towpsley was, he was Yankee enough to beat him, and that he had paid himself what lie thought was coming to him. The porter told Col.Townslev of his con versation, and io consequence of it, the Col onel, in company with the two persons tried with him, proceeded to Perry's room about ten o'clock at night, for the purpose of search iug his baggage, &o, , When they went in, Perry was in bed, but not asleep. On his asking what they wanted, Col. Townaley replied that they had come to take an account of stock, to see how much capital he was trading on. On exam ining his pockets they found a gold watch which be had recently purchased .and 8363,- 60 in money. The money was counted by Col. Townsley snd the persons with him, and then sealed up, and with the watch deposited in ins sate.

I ownstey and the other parties, lor roonery.

Tbe fact appeared to be that he had concocted bis story without any suspicion of the sifting it would have lo undergo by the lawyers. Ihe prosacuting attorney would have entered a not. pros, without examining any other witness, except for his reluctance to assume so much responsibility. I be case waa submitted to the jury without argument and the Coutt instructed them that they could render a verdict without leaving tbe box, if, they were ready. Xliey immediately rendered a verdict ot acquittal. , Mr. Perry, on pre pari n u to leave the Court room, was met at the dooi by Con stable Andrews, with a warrant for bis arrest on a charge of per jury. He was committed to jail for safe keeping, and will be examined before Justice ait to day . Proposed Airu-nduit'iits to the Constitution. 1. Biennial sessions of the Legislature. 2. Governor,Lieut.
