Kings County, X. Y. containing Urook-
lyu) has long been a stronghold of Dluioc
racy. In 185G it gave a majority of 14,975
for B.iehaiun, and this year the Futionists
claimed a majority of at hast 10,000. Tho
i actual fusion majority was -1G52 ! That a
f reduction of over Un thousand in the I)in-
ocratic mnjorit m ore County, bince the last
Pretidential contest, was not accompliehcd
without hard uork, may Lo readily belkted
What the work was and how it was done,
may be inferred from pome extracts from a
private letter, which we have received from
one of the corps of resolute Republican work
ers there, who appears to have had tho post of
challenger on election day. It is to be noted,
in order to understand the amount of vigil'
anca and labor requisite for the duty, thutno
loss than irfc different sets of legal qualifi
cations in the voter, were to be legarded, in
determining his right, or lack of right, to
vote fjr one or the other of the stven tots of
officers voted fur. And it is to bo remem
bered, too, that the work described below,
was only that portion of the entire groat
labor of tho campaign, winch was necessary
in order to prevent the victory, gained by
months of severe lubor and thorough canvass
ing, from being taken from them by fraud.
Our correspondent speaks of but one polliDg
district. A like labor had to bs done in all,
and throughout the State ; and it was thut
Xjw York was carried and Lincoln elected.
"Hero in Kings Co. we feel ery crack becauto
this County has done better than any other Coun
ty; and our 0th Ward is tho banner Ward of the
County, and our 2d DiUrio: of that Ward is the
banner Dietrict.
You bave uo idoa of the work that tha registry
law requite, especially in a district like ours oi
some laoo voters, all to vote at one place, and tie
majority low Irish. It took (fur instance) above
five nighu' work till midnight, and one whole day
for three or four of us, to mako an alphabetical
list of tho leistercd voters, and in my opinion
that wont far to fare the District. It works in
tbi .ways All tho Insjectors are Irishmen. One
of them takes the Register and bite by the window
where tbo voters come, and as ho knous every one
of tho l'ats, ho tings out 'all right,' without look
ing at his book, so that it needs very sharp work
fur the Republican who is on the watch to over
haul hie book and detect tho lie, before tho ballot
gett into the box. Our excellent book, bone?er
enabled tne (on whom this duty fell), to do this in
every case but four, I think; and the result was
that 1 sent back from the window at loaetene un
dreii and tuent-jive men, net rtguterid. Many of
them afterwards came with affidavit and witnets
and iwore in as thoy had a right to do ; but this
took time, and every minuto cost tho Democrats a
vote, inatmuek as there waa not timo to take all
the ballots, and all the KepubHoaDs, or almoa t
all, were on hand early.
It was a hard day'f work, fur the votes caae
like clock ticks from sun-rise to sun-set, without
an instant intermission. It was bard for the voter
too, who had to s Und in queue for hours before
reaching the window ; but I don't think one Re
publican left the ranks. AVhy, at sun-rito there
ere 200 men in line, waiting for tho polls to oj-en
nine-tooths of thtm Republican?, by good luck,
or rather hard work. And when the ballots were
all in, the bardert was to come, for the canvassers
are all Democrats, and you can't trust them io
oeunt without watching. To count the Totes took
all the night and till 3 P. M. the nest day, with
oot adjcwriiBtnt. I staid till one, and then came
back at six in the morning, and relieved R ,
ho having been up all niht. At nine ho took
hold again, and held on till it was finished at 3
P. M. Wednesday. This will give you some idea
of the work required in such cities. AVe carried

more and more intensified. The Union was
on the very point of bursting up ; the South

would bo suspended every where ; ships
would rot at tbo wharves; 6tock would fall to
nothing ; the grass would grow in the street
of New Yoik city, and the mourners would
go about her streets, unless Lincoln should
be defeated. Letters real or feigned from the
Sjuth and West were multiplied in the Her
ald, depicting all tho horrors of revolution il
Lincoln should get tho electoral vote of New
York. Frantic appeals were made to all
classes, to rich and poor, to merchants, me
chanics, lawyers, doctois, hotel-keepers,
opera-goors.showmen, 4c, &c, &c, to drop
all business and to savo their craft and their
country, by voting tho Union ticket. Ex
hortations to Democrats and Bell men, and
slanders and malediction for the Republicans
were poured out of its mouth in an incessant
stream. But Wednesday morning came.
Tho gamo was up. -The election ot Lincoln
was conceded to be beyond dispute ; aud

Tho first icovo this morning was
for a Committee to overhaul the aftairs of tho
Northlicld Hank, and particularly its Recount
with the lato Stato Treasurer. It was stated by
the mover cf tho resolution that he had good reas
on to believe that defalcations in tho Rank had
been repaired by tho fundi of tho State, and
that with the knowlcdgo of tho olEoeru of tho
Bank. It wa known the Rank bid suffered l,ae,
and it was believed that this was the way in which
they bad been covered, and if so, and this culd
bs shown, it would give the Stato and the Treas
urer's boudsmeu a lien upon the property of the
Rank. At any rate such reports having goto
abroad, the investigation was due to tho RanU as
well as the ?tato. Tl-cso statements had been
made upon the authority of some of the most res
ponsible men in Northfield. The Committee con
sist of Messrs. Field, Gardner, and Seymour.
In regard to Mr. Rates' whereabouts, I see it
stated that he was seen at Troy, N. Y., and Syra
cuse, tc, Thureday and Friuay of last week. But
ho only left Northfield between Tbnraday night
and Friday morning, lie t joU breakfast Friday
at South Craftsbu'y, passed through Iraaburh
he same day, anl was undoubtedly across tho lue
in Canada beforo dark. There is no doubt what
ever of tho truth of these statement. lie is well
known all through Orkans County, having lmd
thcro a large sharo of his active life having been
clerk of the t'ouuty Court eight or ten years
member of the LebUiature, as Representative
from Iraeburgb, and County Senator for four o
five years; and ho was setu at theto places by
men who knew him as well as they know anybody.
Definite inform itioa in a idittoa to wait, has ad-
rcatiy been given in regard to tha matter of tha
defalcation, is very eoaroe, un 1 probably will bo
until tbe result of the investigation of the Cum-
iniitee is made known.
A Rill was introduced this morning to prevent
prize fighting, making every person who shail en
gage in any euch fight, punishable by imprison
mcnt nut more than ten yonrs, or by line oot more
than live thousard dollars, an 1 every aid, aeoond,
or surgeon, by imprisonment not more tban five
years, or by fine not to cxeeed one thousand dol
lars, and every resident of tho State iflio gott out
of n to engage in such fight, subject to the same
punishment as an "aid, second, or surgeon" to
any such fights within the Stair.
The discussion of the afternoon was chiefly upon
the Rill providing that no erson having a "hus
band, wife, parent or child" shall will more than
half his estate to any benevolent institution orso
ciety. It was opposed, ns entirely uncalled for and
neodlose, and even the gentleman who introduced
didn't know of any cases where the present
freodom in that matter had worked wrung to any
one, bnt thuught raoh ease might happen, and it
was beat tu bare them provided for. It wu op
posed as likely to work badly in many eases, es
pecially as interfering with a man's right so long
as he has bis reason, (and when that is gone he
can't make any will that is good for anything), ot
doing what ho iIoapo wilh hi proprtj' onlj
provided he tloesn'c uae It to tho injury of aoeietjr.
It was orderod to n 3d reading, though I am con
fident with a fall house it cannot pais.
The Rill for a Reform School states the object
of it to bo "the irMtruetion, canpb yment and ref
ormation of male juvenile offenders against the
laws." "Juvenile" to inelude all under eighteen
years of age who would be sentenced to tha States
Prison for any term less than life, the manage
ment of the institution is to be in the hands of
five trustees chosen annually by the Legislature
the Governor and Liour. Gov. to be trustee ex
.ffieia. A farm is to be purohae'ed of from one to
three hundred aeres, upon which aro to be pat
buildings suitable for the requirement of the in
stitution. Of tho feeling In regard to it I eutaot tell. " It
has not been oaavas.-ed much yet. Tlb defalca
tion in the treasury will probably be used, and no
doubt with considerable effect, by tbe opponents
of this measure, as also of tbe Agricultural
Rureau Rill, and of the Rill for publishing the
Geological Report, though I dont believe the
rttate of Vermont is going to i:e down and give
up entirely, because, the is likely to lose $20,000,
or even 550,000, through her late State Treasurer.

The bill establishing an Agricultu
ral Ilureau was under discussion in both houses a
considerable share of the forenoon, and in the
Senate this afternoon also, without earning to any
vote in cither branch. In tho Senate the opposi
tion is stronger than it lias been supposed it would
be, though it will without doubt pass that branch ;
but I havo little hope lor it in the House. If it
fails, tho discussion will go from the Legislature
to the people. What is begun here will be con
tinued throughout tho State before the meeting of
the next Legislature. Some such measure is need
ed und must, sooner or later, come.

The prospect oi an adjournment at an early day
does not seem to be very bright. The tvkule mat
ter of a Reform School is yet untouched exoept
barely the introduction of the bill. Neither the
Agricultural Rnreau Hill, or the Bill for publish
ing the Geological Report are disposed of, or seem
likely to be very soon. The famous Witness and
Divorce bills still hang by the gUIs, bat wll
surely shew sign of life when the favorable time
cmes. Thcro are one or two bills in relation to
"religious societies" inrolring somewhat im
purtaot principles, with which nothing has

I understand, hold that if that be shown, that it

was called up in the Iloase this afterno, ), and
discussed about an hoar, ani finally ditmuttd. The
opponents of the measure in tbe House seem d
very much ineliued to choke off the uiscusaion, and
did at last, qvite unccrtmonioU-ly. If the Senate
bill passes which I now acmc.rhat doubt the

We aro indebted to the columns of the
Times for the ful lowing sketch of the Hon.
G- P. Marsh's speech, made to the multi
tude who, being wide-awake themselves,
waked him up about two o'clock Wednes
day morning, to congratuluta him on the
Election news :
"On reaching Mr. Marsh's residence. John
B. Wheeler, Esq., called for " three cheers
for George P. Marsh," which were given,
with a 'erocious "tigr !" Mr. Marsh very
soon appeared in the portico, and was again
vociferously cheered, w'-en a speaker ro
marked : "We have disturbed you, Sir, for
the pleasant purpose of congratulating you,
and icceivinc vour cn:i"ratnlntions. on tho
election of Abraiiau Lincoln to the Presi
dency .f the United States."
At tr the cheering had subsided, Mr.Man-h
"aid that tixten vears aco. when the result
of the Presidential election was announced,
ha (Mr. Marsh) was in the city of Washing

retired for the nigbt, he was awakened by
shouts in tho distance, and long before he
could distinguish nu articulate word, ho
knew, by the very tones that grated upon
his ears, so unlike the voices around him this
nii;ht, that James K. Polk had triumphed
over the illhiBtrious Henry Clay.
He was awakened, not" long ago, by tho
ringing of bulls and the booming of artillery;
he heard voices of cheering aud exultation,
and ho recognized the, sound as tho voico of
Freedom and Freemen, and warmly congrat
ulated tho friends aro nd him, on the tri
umph of principles so dear to us all. (Loud
elvers )
When bo heard, an honr before, the ring
ing of the Court House bell, he concluded, as
the lawyers Jo, that the evidence was all in,
the Jury had aorked and the case teas closed
(great laujhftr and checrtng.) Ho needed
scarcely to say that he rejoiced whh them in
the bright prospect of a return to tho lin
cipies of the Fathers of the R public, and
iu tbe hope of a regenerated government.
lie thanked them for the honor they had
done him, and while he would not di tain
them beneath triis autumnal Bky, it might
fte well to glance lor a moment at the com
ing pivspfu-it' of tho oountry. Among the
results of this election, we could look for
ward with hope to a wise and Irugal admin
istration of the government, an administra
tion making no war upon the rights of tho
South, but regarding its interests equally
with the intere.iis of the North ; aiDiini; to
secure freedom to the Territories, and in ev
ery way guarantying the rights of ail the
States of the Confederacy, and without in
clination or desire to interfere with the in
stitution of tJavery wherever it lawfully ex
isted. Since 13-44, .Hr. Marsh continued, we
have baa illustrations of almost erery form
of modem Dcmoeraey wUlding tho power
and influence of the government against tho
extension ct rieedom, with the brief ex
ception, he ought to add, of a lucid interval,
when the people elected to the Presidency
the lamented Taylor, whom the world knew
to be an UONESr MAN. (Loud cheers.)

to icfount what Mr, Fillmore .id as Presi-

hut he (Mr. Miwah) reuircuhered one thinic
he did during tM oaoip&ign of 18CO, wlncli
was that in a speech in Albany, he, first of
all men, declared that the succeed of the Re
publican party would be emse for the disso
lution of the Uuion, and thus put himself at
tbe head of the Disunion party !
We had heard much, ot late, ot tho dan
gerous condition of the Union, but he (.Mr.
Mr.) was led to hon that it w.i, after all,
in comfortable circumstances. (Laughter and
cries of "that's so !") Tne Disunion Party
was Out a lractton ot tlm South, and would
be put down by the Sauth ttelf. But should
the south fail the West would interfere. The
people of the valley of the Mississippi bad a
right ta all the outlets to the Oeean which
Nature and Art had given them, alike t ie

leans and the Gull', and by way ol the great

the South and North together. Loud cheers. 1
weru tne union to lie dissolved where should
the line- be drawn ? The South would not
want tno nordcr Mave states, .Maryland,
Virginia and Kentucky, in the proposed
confederacy ; they lay too near the IV e
stales ol i'ennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana.
What then would remain ? the States below
Virginia that skirt the Atlantic coast un.l the
Gulf of Mexico ; and how long would it be
before they would require the protection of
some foreign despot or gov rnment ! Tho
idea oi disunion was a vain and idle one ;
we use ai.d we must remaiu a united people,
with a noble region of country stretching
from tho Atlantic to the Pacific short(great
cheering ') IL$ would turn from the uncon
genial ttiome with a li m faith that the
Union would Jast forever, (cheers) The
Republican party contemplates no uggrcsivo
acts upjn the South ; there was neither in
clination nor necessity for such acts.
At this late hour, ho would detain them
no longer than to say that after nest March,
there would be no further need of such in
strumentalities us "Covodo Committees,"
nor shou d we hear again of a protesting
Public Functionary ! (Laughter, and a
voice. "Old Public Functionary") thero
would bo njcall for stealing Moxicos, or Cal
ifornias, or purchasing Cubas, to extend
Slavery. (Great cheering.) Without doubt,
wo should see a change iu tha administra
tion ; many activo patriots would bo ex
cused from the service of a grateful public,
(laugtiter) and their places would be sup
plied by better men.
Mr. Marsh concluded by again tendenug
his thanks for tho honor dona him, and
wished his friends a cordial good night,
when with three cheers and a tiger for our
distinguished townsman, the crowd retired.
The genius of ihe Sentinel has broke out
anew. In fact, since its outburst on tho
philosophy of explosions, illustrated in the
doings of the Demooratio National Conven
tion at Charleston, we havo not seen quito so
signal a display of it as appears in tho last
number. Tho election of ABRAHAM
LINCOLN, last week, wo suppose was
the stimulus that set tho steam going. After
a dosa of "it's-goodenoxsgh-far-you,'" dealt
out with a liberal hand to "southern mad
cap secessionists and fire-eaters" for their
"untiring eiiorts to rend in twain tho hith
erto firm ranks of tho democracy" telling
them it can stand Lincoln's administration
as well as they can that they nay as yrdl
st jp thb idle talk about "s3ee5:cn and civil
wai ," and citkc up their minds at onco to
lie quietly in the bed they lmve helped to
make warning tho aforesaid gentlemen
that it goes for "holdipg tbcm to tho conse
quences of their rash and treasonable acts :"
and that eince tho choico is mado, "Lincoln
will b3 President, in spite of their throats
and menaces," it turns its battery on tho
ran: Pitrss. and lets on with a surprising
looseness. Ah, well ! o can stand it : and
considering tLe intense chagrin which tie
SentinA must feel at tho defeat of all its pre
dictions, and the frustration of all its plans
about the election tho black despair which
has settled down on its cherished hopes for
the future, wc do not know but wo ought to
excuse it.

"Since the adoption of platforms by party

to-day trembling in view of the impending
crisis which hangs like a muttering storm

upon tno country any moment.all the appal
ling horrors of civil war, bloodshed and

rrnlity. Lincoln may, nnd probably will be
elected, and in three vreeks from to-day, little
as you now think, we "will probably witness j
tno outn.irst ot tne smouldering names ot

Thu vote of St. George needs an explana

took in high dudgeon ths innocent expres

received the utiprecedonted appoiranco of
two democratic votes, last Septcinber.in that
plucky and usually unanimous borough. He
undertook to get his revenge now by raking
in what he meant should be a democratic ma
jority. Accordingly with a day's work of
assiduous scouring in the neighboring towns,
he succeeded in bringing in sorco seven or
eight Irishmen, who voted in St. George.
The result was that St. Gcorgo has one cr

The telegraph makes curious and serious
blunders now and then. About a week ago,
George Browne, E-q., President of the Buf
falo and Lake Huron railway, whose place
of residence is Goderich. hud occasion to
visit Toronto on business, and on the after
noon of the day of his arrival, ho w taken
ill and a telegram was sent to Mrs. Browne,
summoning her to Toronto. Of courso she
lost no time in making arrangements, and
reached this city by the first on tho following
Finding that her husband was not serious
ly indisposed, or at least that thcro was no
immediate danger, she caused his nephew to
telegraph to that effect to Goderich, in order
to allay the anxiety of tho members of tho
family she had left behind. JTho nephew
proceeded to the telegraph offic3, and penned
the following despatch, which ho handed to
tho clerk : "-Mr. Browne is no worso ; Mrs.
Browne will write to-night." Tho slip was
sent up stairs, and the despatch transmitted
over the wires. When it reached tho Goder
ich office, however, a slight chango had beep
mado in it. Whether from tho illegible wn
in" or th" mistake of tho operator, cannot
beDdistinctly ascertained, but, at any rato,
tho message sent to the family read a3 fol
lows : "Mr. Browne is no more, Mrs. Browno
will write to-night."
As may bo imagined, tbo family were
thrown into the greatest grief on tha receipt
of tho melancholy intelligence. Tho nows
was soon known all over Goderich, and the
people were greatly grieved at tho unexpected
demiso of one whom they all loved and re
spected. Mr. Carter, tho manager of tho
Buffalo and Lako Huron railway, virijed
tha house of mourning, and signified bis in
tention of proceeding to Toronto wih a spe
cial train to bring home the remain of nis
lamented chief. Hi train was got rsndy
without delay, and Mr. Carter and Mr.
Browne's eldest son came to this city as pas
fencers on it.
-hf.n it reached tbe Queen's harf sta
tion, the grief stricken passengers entered

astonishment may ho imagined wh-n thvy
entered tbe public parlor and found Mr.
Browno sitting talking and laughing with
somo other gentbmen and enjoying gocd
health, having recovered from his indisposi

all parties wcro ovorjoyed to find that tho

Somo twenty, or m y otra agi Mr.
Calhoun was driven out from the adminis

with that expulsion, commenced tho- war
against thu Union. Mr. Calhoun, as wa
well know, wrote nn E-say on Government,
in which ho denounced this Union, nnd de
clared that it wis a failure. Gin Jackson,
for tho moment, was able to crush nut the.
disunionist?. He wrote a letter in 1833.iust
after iho s cession movement was over, to a
gentleman of Georgia, in which he said :
The disunionists are destroyed. They
ought to have been hung on a gallows aj
high as Iltnian. o know." sayi he
'that tho tariff question" which was then
the question beforo tho country "was a
mere pretext ; tho next pretext," said he.
"will bo the slavery, or the negro question."
These doctrines of Mr. Culhoun have been
disseminittd tver the South, and they have
infected, to a nreat decree, tho public mind :
and t day we find leading men in that sec

of Virginia, is an avowed Disunionist. How

I cannot say. 1 rather thiuK, from a short
rtiel I saw in a ktter from Norfolk, that
Mr. Wise may be classed among tho latter.
.it any rate, I do not think a great deal is
to be feared from such men. In a speech
made in Virginia lately, lie siid "LTa
wa.itetl men to oranizs and be on tho
alert ; lw wanted Minuto Men men who
would stand by tho South; men who would
be ready ut a minute, in a moment, to pto

if we can get them : if not. then with
swords and short ewords, and bowie-knives ;
and if wo cannot get them, we will fight
them with picknxeaand scythes, and shovels,
and jukes, and if we cannot get them, then
1 shall lead the van, and go in fur fighting
theui with th weapons thit G d A migoty
gave us." (Lwghter.) You see how I ia
valor oe-zes out! It reminds me of un Esay
written by De Qnincey, in which " murder
is considered as one of tho Finn Arts." A
member of a club in which murder was
practiced and discussed as one of the fine artri
thus advices a young man who offers himself
as a servant: "For if once a man indulges
himself in murder, very soon he cornea to
tiiiuk littl of robbing ; "and from robbing,

Broke Jail. .100 ItEWAHD.Joiin Smith,
a prisoner awaiting trial fur pissing coun
terfeit mowy, in our Ccunty jail, escaped
Thursday mr.t. A p.T.ion of thostono wall o
the ward i-u nhmh ths cells open, was yca
ThuralnY, isi -)iirso of the repairsof tha
jail now in rogrcs, tom down, leavinga
simplo partiuju of lath ind plaster acroes tho
opening so made. The prisoners wore locked
into thtir vlh at nivjht, and wero suppoetd
to be securely onfined. It seems, however,
that the look of Smith's ceil was held to tho
door by bolts.fastened only by ordinary nuts.
Thosa nuts Smith probably took occasion to
loosen with the poker, or possibly with soma
tool supplied him from without, yesterday,
and nt night, after all was quiot, ran them
off with his fingers, by reaching through tho
grating of his door. Onco out cf hb coll,
ho easily mado hi3 way through tha lath
partition, and was off. IIo is a yonng man
with dark hair and smooth face, and woro
off a black cap, salt and pepper coat and
pants with a dark stripo. Our excellent
Sheriff, from whosa cara no prisoner has ever
before escaped, ofibrsa reward of ons hund
red dollars for his recapture and return.
Tho two mos. potent foes of the Southern
disunionists aro hog and hominy. The Soath
.ern poopic, free men as well as slaves, lira
on park and raaizo.and thoy have n't enough
of these two essentials fc last them down to
tho termination of Mr. Buchanan's admin
istration. They wonld hava to buy them of
the free States, but vrhcro would they get
tho money, if they should so act as to pat an
end to business? It is a disagreeable circum
stance, and clearly owirz to a mJstaka oa
j the part ot Providcnco, that oven ta chiv
alry and its horses must eat, or thery can't
go ; no, not even oat ot tae union.
