THE RESULT. Suicc the campaign of 1S44 bas openod,. elections hu e been held in ten' Slato?, which have becn well contested ; aud es far as tbey go, wc are willing to take tbcm as tho test or public sentiraent. There have also becn partial elections in Peansylvania, Virgiuia, and other States, to fill vacancica in Congress, that show a tillmore decided Whig gain than the generaJ elections in the States. Tbey all indicate unerringly tbe complete triumph f the Whig partywhen Mr.Ci.Ar takes the fieH. We have not ashadowof doubt tbat his majority will bj as large.if not lar ger, than Gcn. Harrison's. We give this, not as idlc boasting, but as our opponents tt show any change of public opinion, as ibdicated by the elections, that have takcn place within a twelve month, that can in-validate-this result. The only Statesthat Toted' for llarrison.in rcgard to which any doubt can be felt as to their voting forMr. Clay.are Maine, Michiganand Mississippi, rhatgive 20voles;(o ofiaet which there is niuch reaiontoexpectthat Virginia and Arkansas, giving22 Totcs, may vote for Clay. But let us loolc at the StateB in detail : MARYLAND. Th'n State nnened the camnaitm in Februiry, with an election of members of Conzress. Bhe raaae a ciear oweep 01 n, lctiiig 6 Whigs, their having been 2 Locos in the prcvious delegation.

Tho next threo Stites that will go for Polk and Texas, it is uot essy to name. In justice to Tennessee, we ought to say, the campaign of eightecn hundred gm rnrfv-fnnr was reallv oDened bv her last August, when the thunder tonea of her victory arousea tne iv nig3 irom iuch apathy, all" throughout the Union. A suc cession of defeata brought on by the dis traction caused by the Vetoes, had induced the Whigs to let the elections go by de fault in all quarters. The Whigs of Tenn essee changed this policy, and thoroughly aroused the party ; and from that hour it has been marching of steadily from vic tory. Who can doubt the result 1 The two last Legislature in Tennessee stood as follows : she chooses every two years. 1843. 1844. W. L. F. W. L. F.

In this statement, some half dozen vacancies in tbe lower House each year are omitted, as they do not affect the general result, having raoetly voted not to send, after ttroor tbrw trials. Tht ntxt election was in VIRGINIA. In the latter part of April, an election took place in this State, for members of tbe liouse of Delcgates, ana to tul two vaconcies in Congres3 (both Locos.) Tbe result was as follows : 1843. 1644. W. L. F. W. L F. JSo of mcra. 69 73 75 57 Sbowinz a net gain of thirty-two and a tnajority of 0 on joint ballot, a matter of greit linportance, as this Legislature nas the choice of an U. States Senator, on which aceount the election was warmly eontested. TheWhigi also gained one rae.Tjber of Conzress in Gilmer's Dis- trict RHODE ISLAND. In this 8tate the Locofoco party is de fanct, owing to Dorr's ridiculous move mtnt. At the election in May, they eould not muster courage enough to start acandidatcin oppositionto Fenner, (W.( who was chosen by a vote of five thousand re hundred and sixty to two hundred and eight scat.cring. The Legislature stands sixty-cven Whigs to twenty-six Loco. The Whig rote for Fenner wastwo hun dred and eighty-two abore that east for General Harriso.v in eighteen hundred and forty. LOUISIANA. Last year the highest majority the Whigj could gire on joint ballot in the Lejislatnre, was 3, when the State Prin- ter was chosen. Mr. Johnson (W.) was chocn to the U. S. Senate bv a vote of 39 to 38. At the election last month, thc result gave 8 Whigs.to9 Locos in the Senate, and 34 Whigs to 26 Locos in the House, so that the Whigs liavea major ity of 7 on joint ballot. They also gained onc mcmbcr of Congress. NORTH CAROL1NA- The following gives tho result of the Legislature, justelected, as compared with 1S43 : 1343. 1844. W. L. F. W.

VERMONT ELECTION YICTORY COjMPLETE. Vermont has again done her duty np to to tbe full extent of our largest expcctations. Never hn Loco-Focoism put more strenu- ously in requisition every appliance which zeal, energy, art and intrigue could supply, acd fougbt wlih more desperate resolulion tbau in the struggle which has just beenclos ed. The same may be said of Third-Party- ism wbich has fougbt with an unscrupulous fury, and spem its last effort in tbis hard fougbt bat'.le. But all has been in vain. The star that never sets is still in a glorious ascendcncy. Most nobly have the people of Vermont again vindtcated their claims tothat rigid and lofty patriotism which goes for the country. tbe whole country, and notbing but the country. They could not be blinked to tbe great issucs wbich were submitted to their decision. Tbey clearly disccrncd the truth amidst tbe mists and dcceptions witb which their onnonents attemnted to smother it. In cvery department of tbe government Loco Focoism is corapletely waterlooed. We have leturns enough before us tosbow that tbe Governor is ours. The Senate is oursand the House of Rcpresentatives by ovemhelming majoritjes in bolb botlics. Three Cnngress-men out of four likewiso grace tbe splendid victory. Last year Mat tocks lacked about 13 hundred of anelectiou by the people. Mr. Slide will now be elec tcd by a bandsomc majority. In the only Loco CongressionalDistrictin thc State there is uo election. Paul Dillingbam has beeu defeated for Congress, and by sucli a .Whig force as to render his future election contin gont except by an union of Third-Partyism upon him. Addison County notwithstandiDg tbe ouilaught of the f urious apostles of Third Partyism upon her just before election, bas nobly sustaincd hersclf. She has made three Whig gains in the Legislature to tbe Locos orTbird-Party one, and incrcased from last year between four and fire hundred on the State Ticket. The Biruey men have very little toboast ofin 'Old Addison,' and here and elsenhcre bavc proselyted more from the Loco-Foco party who have attended their meetings and cheered tbem forward. than from the Whig ranks. The Liberty Party lhiough tbe State in the same way have gained upon the State tickets a doxen members of the Legislature, and prevented many elections chiefly in Loco towns. But their bigh anticipations have been blasted,for the present, if not forever bereafter. Last year ths party polled 33 hundred and tbeir increaje wii! be about 1500. The Freeman says inogl of this incp-.ase is from the ''iiam Demotracy." Windsor County has doue nobly having gaiued over 1000 to tbe Whig majority since last year, ootwithstandiug tbe additiou of 157 to tbe LHierty party. A few of her lownsde serve notice. Cavendish has gained 79, Hartford 109, Norwich 61, Rochester 43, ipringfield 148, Weathersfield 66, Windsor 124, Chester wbich has been Loeo s'mce 1810 and last year a majority of 147 against Mattocks has tbis year given 8 majority for Slade, a gain of 155.

Tbe prospects of this institution grow more and more en couraging. The number of Students is rap idly increasing. Twenty-nine orlhirtyhave entered. atand since last commencement. Otbers aie expected. Dartmouth Colleoe. ' The commence ment of this institution was celebrated on tbe 25th ult. Thero are fifty-nine graduates. The Hon. Degree of D. D. was conferred upon Rev. B. B. Edwart s, Professor at An-Andover. and that too, witbout theleast inquiry as to their political course, as they will them selves testify. The ability however of any portiou of the btisiness men ol the country to employ lubour and give good pay and good wages must be vastly diminished should locofocoism prevail inthe government. The evident policy of this party is to sub. vert the industrial interestsof the country, to transfer our workshops to Europc, to sus peud our manufacturing establishmeuts which fumish employment to tens of thousands of foreiguers, of all ages and sexcs, as well asAmeriqan citizeus. and Ibrwantof a home market to palsy the giant arm of agriculturial labour, and blast its proffits'. And in sbort for want of that protection wbich the locufoco party refuscs to home industry to prevent the industry of America from doiug tbe work of America by letting in the producls of the paupcr labour of Europc, to rcduce and destroy the demand for labour in this country.

As a party the locofocos stand in the way of all cfficient protection. IMPROVEMENT. Something is said about Town as to the improvement of side-walks. The attention of individuals is tumcd to them by the pro ject to complete those of thecommon. The present is the best season for such work, and , if undertaken to a good extent the result would be felt in thc gratiGcation and comfort of all. Delay will not only subject us to tbo deplorable evil of bad walks during the fall and spring, butlose us thc goldeu momcnt for repairing them, and throw the work be yond the wintcr upon tb.3 most hurryingtime of springj Ciposlng us to anothcr year of dis grace and inconvenience. Those who have occcsion to pas? in thestreets do not wish to be reminded oftbo unhappy conditiou of ma ny of them for foot-meh. They are not so distinctly named as they migbt be, but the short-cut between Pleasant strect and the street Ieading to Salisbury is miserably supplied with a walk on the north side: so the street Ieading to the papermill, bclow A cadsmy lane, the New Havcn road beyond Seminary street. The walks froin the bridge up, on either side of the publick squarc, are deficient that which is the principal thor oughfare for passengers ought especially to be in order; on each side the Cougrcga tional churcb. they are bad ; and in almost any quartcr may be benefitted by a thorough attempt at improvement. Those who wish far the gratification of recalling the bct ter instances of walks with wbich we are happily favored, will remember of course those of Mr. I. Stewart house and store, R. Wainwright, A. Francis and J. Dyar, the neatest among them, and the good wnrks of Mtssrs. Hagar and Linsley on the south side of the creek. These instances are not too perfect to be imitated, and attention beiug turned as it fortunately has been to the sub ject, there is no one who will not examine the great subjects ofthe Rail-road and Annexation with more grace if his own immcdiate part of public business.is well done before his eyes. It is well to kecp an eye on thc moou, for there is no telling what may bccome of it, but to miss our own footing in the mean white is sad for our own noscs. Imfboveme:t.- TJNITED STATES SENATE.

This gentleman after twice refusingby letter to be rcgarded as a candidate for Gov ernor ofthe state of New York, has becn nominatcd by the Syracuse State Loco Con vention. The Tribunesays trnlyofthis man, "that his lifeis full ofacts in utter and fla grant violation to all democratic principles, and yet hc is lauded as the champion of de mocracy." " He has always held all ques tions of public policy as subordinate to par ty ascendancy and has becn just as prolcc tiveand anti.protectivc as theinterests ofthe party seemcd at tho tirae to reqnire." His whole life has been ascene ofhcartless po litical struggling, and yet he has played his part so well as at this moment to be thc most popular man of his party in thc State. His non:ination is indeod a hailing sign of of immcdiate auuexation. and is ready with his party to press it for ward to speedy consummation recklcss of consequcnces however fatal to the welfare of this great natiou. Ths reasans which Mr. Clay urges will possess no cogency with n man who is placed in tbe Presidcntlal chair for the express purpose of carryiug iuto eflcct tbis shameful scheme of annexation. But another great shield of safety against annexation will be in an anti-Texas Congress which will ineviiably come in with the elec tienofMr. Clay. No Whig Congress will agrce to annexation. Such a Congress will nover agrce that Slavery should thus pour itself through this continont, and extend its existence and strenglheu its etakes furtver. A Whig Congress would not encourage plot which would thus swindle the North ont of its prospsrity, and just w eight in the coun-. cils ofthe Union. Thon fellow citizens, Clay and the Whi; party interposs tbe only barrier against innsx ation and destruction to all th.it is dear to us. With them you may be safe, but witbout them, ruin, anarchy. disunion and perhap civil war are the inevitable rcsults. DORR AND LOCOFOCOISM. There is nothing which sn characterizes tb difference betwoen tho two great partics which divide ths Union, as the love of order aud the deferenee to the laws aud tbe Cocstitution of the country displayed by the Whigs, andthe contemptuous disregard and repeattd infrac tions of them by their opponents. A fitter illustration ofthe truth of these re marks could not be instancrd in our history than tbe Rhode Island rebellion. The fol lowing extract from an article on the case of the notorious Thomas W. Dorr, is from tha Albany Argus, the organ of tbe Loco-Foco1 party in the State of New York publishcd in an editorial dress, and endursed of course by the editor, as his own scntimcnts: "If there has erer been a case sinee the revolulion irAfcA would justify the people in the surroundtng States in taking up arms and going in ivjji- cient force to open the priton, and let a guilt- This shuuldbe aroid- distress to the nartr.
