Fusion i nowhere. The Republican Lost Las triumphed. The cohorts of slavery and disunion have met with n 'Waterloo defrat. Henceforth Freedom is National, and Slavery &dioti We have neither time or word lor common on the despatches which we give below. They indicate the election of tlie Republican ticket in New York State, by a majority as large as the largest Republican estimates ; Pennsyl vania has been carried with a Republican whirlwind. In fact, tso far as heard from, cverj State claimed for Lincoln has done ail that was asked of it. Read and rejoice. The News ik Burwoton. The Town Ilall was SIM tLrough the niht with an eag?r and enthusiastic crowd, who received the despatches read to them, as fast as they were received over the wires, with immense cheering. In the intervals telling speeches were mado by Hon. Homer E. Royee, Mr. Miner of Manchester II. B. Stacey, G. B. Sawyer, and oth ers. Gen. Clarke sang his Ab3 Lincoln ditty, and the University Glee Club some capital tongs. At 1 o'clock, a regular jubilee began. Th Snuaro was lich"! with a j roaring great bonfire cf tar ttarrels and dry goods boxes innumerable. Tho bolls were rung and ONE HUNDRED GUNS were fired for the triumph of Honest Abraham Linsolx and free principles. At about 2 o'clock tho crowd left the Hall en masse, to pay their respects to Hon. Geo. J'. Marsh. They proceeded to his residenco and called him out, and he made a short speech, congratulating them on the good news. At 3 A. M. the crowd began to dis perse, and by 4, the streets were vacant. Tho above rem arks are from our Extra of Wednesday morning. The despatches received tince, which we subjoin immediately Iclow, take New Jursey from Mr. Lincoln, and give it to Mr. Fusion, and make certain some of t'ue anticipated losees ol Congressmen. The summing up of the 2 matter W-day, is that Linortla is elected by a very handsome majority, a ml that his administra tion will lack the.sapport of a Republican Congress. Tb Lincoln States are as fol lows : -Maine. New llampjiirc, i!a5achu;etU, Rhc Itlacd, Connecticut, Vermont, Jew York, PcoMjlvanis, Obio, 13 6 ' lixSUsa, 23 IS Itlirata, 11 4 Michigan, C C W5nsiii, & & Iew, I Si ilinnesuia, 27 which wi!l ca-t 169 of the 303 votes of the Electoral College. To these in ail human probability, the 3 v-tas of Oregon will havo U be added, making 172, wbich will bo a majority of 41 Electoral vtee. VOTE Ol' BURLINGTON. An awful ramy day hs been ujion U6 in this vicinity. Tbe rain began early in the forenoon and fell unceasingly till night. If it has been so throughout tho Sute.the total vote mutt be lessened some thousand. Many agod persons and others m feeble lienlth could not go to the polls in such a storm espe cially when not a man could be found in the State to doubt the &uecetg of the Republican ticket by a majority of over 20,000. In this town, considering the weather, tbe vote is a fair ooo for amount, and the Republican majority is at least rtcsenahk. Wc give be low the vote as oast in Burlington for tho last four Presidential electiBns: 1848. Total vote, 1010 For Tuylor, Cass, " Van Buren, Whig majority. 593 255 170 1S52. Total vote For Scott, " Pierce, " Hale, Whig majority, 1850. Total vote, Fremont, 64 509 292 63 154 863 592 216 26 4 Buchanan, Fillmore, Smith, Republican majority, 1860 Total vote, 315 900 Lincoln, 60S 231 44 15 o Douglas, Breckinridge, Bell, Gerrit Smith, Republican majority, Samo S3 for Fremont ! SIC VEBHONTV The tona appears hav0 SJ reduced tie total vote of tho State, with, however, aot an equally great decree of the Repub lican majority, ae compred with 1S55. Lincoln's mnjority in the State will be from 2.i,000 to 30,000. CHITTENDEN COUNTY. The thirteen towns from which wo have re turns, foot up, Lincoln 079, Douglas 515, Ureckcnridgo 63, Bell 25 , Smith 2. Repub lican majority 1469. The same towns in 1S56 gave Fremont 2G15, Buchanan 03, Fillmore 73. Smith 12. Showing a falling off in the total vote, as compred with 1856, of 639, and of the Republican majority of 419. The sole and sufficient cause for this was the storm, which was a cold rain, changing to Enow in tho Eastern towns.mak- in" it the worst day ot the season. itn fair weather Mr. Lincoln's majority in the County would have been not less than 22, .... . Mmn i-i 000. As it is it will be about louu wmcn m total vote of about 2300 is not so bad. The Bell vote in the county is about one- third of the Fillmore vote of 1S5G, and pre serves the same insignificant proportiocs throughout the State. The vote of Hinesburgb, in which town not a vote was given for anybody but Lin coln, is something remarkable. CniTTESDEK COCSTT Lincoln. PoaglasJ. BrtcV. Bell.

The S10,000 mentioned, and about $2000, whichtirM fiand in tho Bank of Northfield; is rproliy raucS all that can bo counted on. I don't exactly understand in srbat shape the $3000 in the Bank was, but somo way to that it is to be reckoned as so much saved towwdJ . the, deficit. -f-Tho amount of tho deficit already- ascertained, is upwards of sioDOO. i!r.-Bat left Xorthlield .saineti-mo between dark-last night, and diyligbt this morning, und at the last account, had cot Jbeen Errestei?.

Mr. Bale?, of ccurre, is a man geaerally-and in- timately known in this part of the State, and to his friends here, this affair comes like a thunder clap. It seems impossiblo. Indeed no oao thinks, 1 believe, that he is naturally a vicious or di:hon- estraan, bnt his habits havo been extravagant, and cf late it hi3 been understood, generally, th ho was getting to be quite intemperate, and so by one thing and anothor, ho been led along till he is whero ho is a fallen man. Of.coursc nothing cf impcrtanea has been dono in the Legislature to-day, the Ifoutes havo been so thin, and still cchs.derably many private and unimpoVtant matters havo.becn disposed of. Mr. Field mado quite a speech in favor of dismissing tho bill to publiih tho Geological Report, but no vote was bad, and I think there is no prospect of iU being dismissed; and pirticularly if Mr. P. can b'o persaaded to make another sach speech in favor of-dismisiing, as ho did to-day. Yonw, Q. Wo heardMonday morning that about$4,000 was found in the Rank, to the credit of the State; and though a person claimed that it was assigned to him , the Cashier paid it Over to the Stato Treasurer. The report is, also.that a larger part of tho defalcation will be secured for the Stato than was at first thought probable, and that tho estimated loss to the Stato may not overgo $ 10,000. Wo fear that news is too good to be true. THE STATE TREASURY. Tho defalcation of the late State Treasurer draws attention to the fact that no proper safeguard is provided by law against such an occurrence. A bond, to De sure, is of tho Treasurer (our impression is to tho amount of $100,000) ; but the bondsmen may turn out to bo poorer or less honest than they wero supposed to De, ana uiu im prove to be of little value. Moreover, though tho bonds be good, for its amount if there is no check on the power of tho Treas urer to implicate the Stato for monies winch lie may raise, and appropriate for hia own purposo instead of for the State, once grant him to he dishonestly disposed, and there is hardly any limit to what ho wight do in h at lino ; so th at any bond, however good might cover but a small portion of the pub lic loss. There ought to bo enacted a law which will disallow any validity to a note or bond given by the Treasurer of tbe SUte,un Ipss first countersigned by another public of- tWr. and also recorded m tho Secretary of State's office, the fact of such record being vouched for on the obligation itself, .ty the official signature and seal of the Secreta ry. The cancelling of every such obligation ought also to be recorded ; and an annual scrutiny of these transactions be made under tho direct authority of tho Legislature. Bor rowing money for tho State is a matter which never needs to be done in a hmry. -There is always time enough to tako full precaution against carelessness or dishon esty. Vermont has had no previous experi ence, to speak of, in losses of money through her State officers It will be well fcr to pro fit by tho lesson which tho present loss, lareor small, teacbes her. LATEST FROM EUROPE. The U.S. Steamship Adriatic arrived at New York on November 5th, with European dates to Ootober 26th. There is no exciting news from abroad. Tho Dake of Richmond died in London, Oct. 21st. The latest infor mation arnounces that Austria will main tain a defensive attitude in Italy, and will not act unless she is attacked. A decrco bad appeared in the Moniteur suppressing tho "Gazette of Lyons." The Gazette advocated the cause of the Pope very strongly. The decree suppressing it shows that tho Government is irritated, or itnd at tho lancuaco of the . clerical journals in treating tho affairs f....,..-v , - w of 1 Rnme. The P.iris correspondent of the London Times says : A French traveller arrived from Verona, confirms all that has been said as to the great preparations for war made by Austria in Venetia, for some time past. Ve rona alone contains within the citadel and the entrenched camp which protects it, 100, 000 men. He adds that it would be difficult to form an idea of the immense works which aveh been raised for its defense. The citadel can always b3 supplied with provisions from tbe mountains. Mantua and Pescheira are likewke strongly garrisoned. Tbe Austrian forces in Italy are estimated at 150,000. The plain of Mantua is stud ded with fortifications, awl Pescheira L a little Verona.

JIH. SBW.MtirS SPEECH AT .V. Y. Friday evening last, Mr. Siward made a speech to a vast concourse of citi:ns in New York city. Like all the speeches of that eminent statesman, it is remarkable fur its calmness, its avoidance of little points and personalities, and it? breadth of view. lie closed it with a reference to the disunion threats which of late have filled the air. "But they proceed to tell us that if wo do not concede to their demands they will secede and dissolve the Union. Shall we then surrender? That involves the ques tion whether they will secedo and dissolve the Union if we do not. What then is it we proposo to do which they require us not to do ? Why, it is simply "to vote for the man we prefer, or for the three men, or the no-man, that they prefer. (Cheers and laughter). Is thero any offanse in that? Why, that is just what the constitution says we may do ; and inasmuch as thero must be necessarily a difference between us, the con stitution requires every man not to vote for tho man some ono else wants elected, but for tho man that he himself prefers over every body else. (Cheers.) Well, they say that, nevertheless, they must take offense. We ask why? This is our right. 'Why. then, will you disiolvo ?' They reply, 'Wo will dissolvo because Mr. Lincoln and a Republi can Congress will commit aggressions upon us after they are elected.' 'Very well,' we say, 'but is it not prudent and is it not rea sonable to wait until he is elected first, and until he commits the aggressions or attempts to do it ?' (Cheers ) They answer, 'No, wo cannot afford to wait for an overt act, localise the overt act may never bo commit ted (Laughter and cheeisl or.if it should be committed, wc should bo tod much de moralized, and we could not resist and vin dicate ourselves.' Well, I will not argue tho latter point (cheers) but I do believe better of them than they proc'aim of them selves. I "know their manhood, their spirit, their courage and their chivalry, and I know enough of human nature to know. jikn. tlml he who waits until an overt act is committed before he strikes back, will be able to recover his rights a thousand times sooner than he who strikes before any overt act i commit ted. (Applause.) Rut why should we ex pect that President Lincoln and his cabinet, and a Republican Congress, will commit ag gressions upon tho slave States ? They could Kot.do it constitutionally , and what ihev rauuui; tumiimuonaiiy ao cannot De dono in this country. (Loud cheers.) Besides, who are theso men who are to commit these un constitutional aggressions ? They are citi zens of the United States, chosen by their fellow citizens ; if not altogether the best, yet from the best of every part of tho free States. Are they less likely to ba honest, and just, and wiso and prudent statesmen than the men selected from tho same constit uencies who have heretofore filled the seats if Congress? "And what is our duty? To threaten acK again to fulminate menace for menace and denunciation for denunciation? No but to listen with patience, with kindness with fraternal feeling and sympathy ; for we do not expect men to hear our arguments and our arguments are much harder to bear than their threats. (Laughter.; I do not think these threats, before election, aro evi dences of revolution and disunion after elec tion, for the simplo reason that I havo al ways found that a man who does intend to slnke a fatal blow does not givo notice -so" Iong beforehand.

Senator Harris did not wish to foreo a voto bn. thought there was no necessity for a aVil-'y. The question of the appropriation was decided by a previous legislature. T le sum voted has already been actually expended by Mr Mead, who i-ecetves nothing at all f. r his own skill and labor. To re fuse the appropriation would be to break th im plied contract with the artist.

It was stated by Mr Field that the !a'o Treas urer had failed, that his bondsmen had failed. There wero tho most serious apprehensio" of a de falcation. Bathe dii not jadge it was expedient te proceed in the me' hod contemplated in the res olution. He could hardly believe that the actual condition of things was as bad as was apprehend ed. Lut tho Houio should be slow to throw sueh imputation on the character of a publio officer. Ue believed this was not a proper method. He believed that by the statute it was the duty of the incoming Treasurer and the Auditor to exam ine these accounts. Mr Seymour of Vergenne3 believed that the information called for by the resolution ought to be in tae possession ot the House He concurred however, with the gentleman from Xcwfane, that weaheuld be cautious in this prcceelir. The. miner tnoaia ee Invrrtirated hv the nresent Treasnrer, inasaacch as injury may bo done to him by delaying or by neglecting to get tho requi-ite information. He spoke of tne uifficultie lying in the way of this committee in making the ex amination. He entertained no objection to the proposition, but believed that a better and more legible plan might be adopted wbleh would soon er lead to a report and a satisfactory conclusion. Mr Xoyrs of Burlington, hoped this duty would not be laid on the committee of ways and means. It would be difficult, perhaps impossible, for it to dtscliargo tbe duty, unless other duties be remit ted, lie agreed with tho gentlemen that it was a delicate matter to institute proceedings of this character. i5ut tbe House had a duty which it owed to itself and the State to perform. Mr. Thomas ol West Fairies feared that the matter had been neglected already. If there be a defalcation it is higu time to kno-v it. We shall gain nothing by deferring investigation. Tbe gentleman -from Xewfane had said we should lose nourtng by -watting. But let ma ask shall we gain anything ? He believed that not a dollar could be savd ;.nothing could be gained by farth er delay. He felt that tho subject was a delicate one, an unpleasant one. He telieved that the House felt this, too, but duty was imperative, and he knew of but one course to pursue. To be sure, as a member of the committee on ways and meaosrbe did not crave the duty, the labor of do ing this work, lut he should not shrink from it.

M., Xocember 1st., I860. Senator Woocward said He was bora In Ver mont, had always, with tho exception of a few years while acquiring his education, livod in Ver mont, and had always been identified with her in terests. And though cductted to a profession, h had bjen interested all through life ia the agri cultural affairs o tb Ststi. He thought, thou3'n there had been very much talking and good talking ton yet to some ex tent it had been devoil of faets of tho solid facts and elements which shaukl fcria the basis of a measure liko this. It has been said by Senators who have spaces that Vermont is a peculiar State, and this has been acceded to by all. Peculiar ia what? Pecu liarly an agricultural State ? Is it mora peculiar ly an agricultural State than the Western or Southern Statea of thi oonfederaay ? It may be tomewbat peculiar among tbe New EngUnd stj tos, for, ia all probability, there may be le;3 of com meroe." less of manufactures, less of lumbering, less of tbe inechani: arts, than in these sister States. But the peculiarity of all the New Eng land Ftatea i that they are farming States agri cultural States. But it ia said that fcr the last ten years Ver mont Ua3 been detoriating in population. Tnis has been assigned to different causes. One Senator attributes it to our emigration to the West on ac count of the exhaustion of oar soil through the poor manner in which it has baen cultivated. When such reasons as this are assigned, certainly wo must be hard pa'het for a basis for aa agri cultural bureau. The Senator from Addison, whn supported thi3 bill, discarded this idea, an 1 said, "emigration was the blood of ew Etgland.'' There is a problem which would need some so lution if tho above reason is correct. If onr peo ple go oat from Vermont because the soils are to poorly cultivated, why is it a fact that daring tie last ten years the population has held good ia the other New England states, while confeasae'iy they are behind Vermont ia agricultural interests ? The fact is that the other Statse are in a greater measure given to commerce, to manufacture, cr to lumbering, atd thi3 produces a division of labor and retains more of the population. But it is argued that this agricultural hiti would check this emigration. Without 'tipping to ask whether this emigration is an evi I in a stato or national view, it mii;ht be aeked if this ahricultural bureau will do for the agricultural interests what the railroads have done for it du ring the past ten years. Through these railroads our lande have been increased in value and our products have had a more ready market. And so, through this period in which this depletion h complained of, there has ben every interest at wcrk to keep tbe people of Vermont at heme. He oisesnied the notion that the farmers wero asking for a bill of this kind. He gloried in tho idea that the farmers of Vermont are independent, are wealthy, that they como not to the legislature asking for any such bill. There should oome a voic of the people demanding it before we peas any fueh measure. This Legislature ia. in a very large degree, composed of fanners. And the other House, which is pre-eminently con posed of farm ers, gave a very summary judgment on the sub ject when it first eame before them. It has al:o been argued that there are great de fect in agriculture, in the mode of cultivating the lands of Vermont, and we woufd enable tbe farm ers to cultivate their lands better than they had done. But, th ugh the land might bo cultivated better than it is, yet in no State are the lands bet ter cultivated than in Vermont. It has been said that agricultural bureaus ara working well ia other States ; but if this is so. where are the facts 7 Why do not some of them reach us ? They ar certainly making but little noise. But it ia said the experiment will ccet but lit tle. It will rrv!t the State on!y about $1,000 a year, and this is a small matter. It now costs the Stale not a small sum to carry on its operations. It now eons tbo State over 5240,000 annually, ana while this is the fact we must not forget that thi? independent and wejltby State of Vermont is cow adso iu debt, to the amount of $115,000, with a St tte House just built at a cost of 140,0u0 more In addition to this we are constructing monuments. Wo have aa educational system t support, and we L ave a geological report to publish, at an ex pens of from St.oOO to $5,000. And this, too, accruits to tbe benefit of the agricultural class. The argument that it cists bat little, U the argu meat vhich makes so many bankrupt State a well asUBdividuals. , , But w.hat does the bill proposo to do ? In the first place it prop' es to appoint a board of eight director?. It makes provision for the choice of a steretarv art a salary of not less than SdOO. It t rovides for the collection of stttutios and facts f jT an annuaf report to the Legislature. But does it make any pro vision for these facts to be scattered abroad among the peple ?

He cared nothing about th(J provision f jr too appointment of thi Board, yet he would derr t tne bencral Assembly the pwj;jUnent now given It tbe stato Agrioul ural Society. H thought th Legislature should passe before adopting a meas ure of this kind. The matter shoui 'l be distune! more generally throughout the State.

W have officers who oould eollect tnein just aa we!! the board of listers, for example. He thoagat no additional oSoeri need be made to inarease t benefit of the farmer. Senator Armstrong said the principle oaest:'--was tbe necessity of this board . Some have r -t : on tbe ground of tho deterioration of oar soi', oth ers' on the ground that ourpopulation is cos"aa: ly decreasing. All this proves that our agricul ture Is not what h might be. It is not, at tb present day. what the agriculture of our forefath ers was. Then ho that had the best resolution, in clearing the new soil and putting in the cr r had the greatest success. But now intelligence rather thaa muscle, is required in order to succe in agriculture. The farmers are isolated. Thr do not ciaie together S3 professional men do. E't: they are intelligent, and if aroused, probably s? s roag minded men, though not so liberally edu cated, as any olass. The purpese of this board of agriculture is net to builtt new railronds "or create new markets, har to oall'pubuo attention and arouse the farmers t- the position which they ought to occupy. Fmm this board there was not so mueh to-be ex pectid as from the efficient action of a good Sscre tary. This is not entirely an experiment al though it may be in this department. In our board of education we havo had a Secretary whe has traveled over the State and held Institute:, ajid be could testify to the interest in education which had been awakened. We expect .neb lo tion from the secretary of the. board of agricni ture. If such an experiment has been saccssful tn. other departments why not is this ?
