Abraham Lincoln.
A pcrfoct Stampede throughout the
All New England for LINCOLN.
Missoiui Probably for Douglas
Southern States for Breckcnridge.
Wc have met the enemy and they arc
ours. The child is lorn and his name is
Abraham Lincoln". Fusion i nowhere.
The Republican Lost Las triumphed. The
cohorts of slavery and disunion have met
with n 'Waterloo defrat. Henceforth Freedom

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
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 :

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.
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,
" Van Buren,
Whig majority.
1S52. Total vote
For Scott,
" Pierce,
" Hale,
Whig majority,
1850. Total vote,
Republican majority,
1860 Total vote,
Gerrit Smith,
Republican majority,
Samo S3 for Fremont !
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.
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.

tlie ate tatt, Treaaarar, Mr. Bate, of
' Xottheld, ii i till th chief Ihema of oonversation
thrcnghoat tie aansmunlty. Tho btifk, nimoit
wild eioUe:aent of the first anDOuneement, is in
.decd past, but the feeling of tail surprise and ar
tonishment ia.etronger than ever.
Jlr. Pago, tho present Treasurer, wha went to
XcithfieKl last evening, has just returned. The
offiter s Ttore able to find no property belonging to
Mr. Bte5. One of his bcnd;men is worth about
. 210,900, which is secared to the S.ste. Tbe prop
erty of the resfof his bondsmen is very ranch on
eumbcred; and though setnetbiog may in the end
be saved for the State, it U vory uncertain how
much. 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?.
Of courie nobody feels like speculating or. mor
alising vory much upon thi3 affair at present,
Tho feeling isjather of profeuud sad dumb as
tonishment. 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.
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.

Austria in Venetia, for some time past. Ve

aveh been raised for its defense.
The citadel can always b3 supplied with
provisions from tbe mountains. Mantua and

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"

dictates that in state as well as pr.jvata affairs we
should proceed with caution. He " fvor of

be well tl give Senators time to asce.'tam if there
were anything to appropriate.
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.
Tho motion to lay tbe bill on the tablo Vaa
amended so that the bill should bo made the spe

Hocsh. Rctolutums'. By Mr Bean of Barnard
iastiucting the committee on ways and meam to'
iovestifate the afiairs of the late 3tat Trea urer;
to inquire why the State taxes have not been col
lected according to law; to examine into the dii
potion of moneys deposited with him, and the
uisbnrsemeotsof the same; to send fcr persoor
and papers.
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.
Mr. Colby of ilartland moved to amend the
resolution so as to join the Treasurer with the
committee on ways aiid means in making this in

On ihe'A'jrituhviral Bureau, hilt, en Thunia.ii
' P. 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.

meat vhich makes so many bankrupt State a

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

Senator Armstrong said the principle oaest:'--was

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
