It is no indication of true courage when an enemy has been met and con quered, for the victor to take off his coat, roll up his sleeves, brag and. banier. The greatest generals of ancient and mod crn times, who have astonished the world by their skill and triumpliB, have always added to the glory of their conquests, by treating the vanquished with humanity and kindness. What is true of the pugi listic combattant, and the nobje general on the field of battle, after the victory has been won, is equally true in relation to the affairs of political contests. The" election is over the united strength of the Americans and Republicans, in this county, Congressional District and State has achieved a great and glorious victory over the Administration party. In Penn sylvania, in Iowa and in Minnesota, the result has been the same ; while in lnui ana the result ot the contest remains doubtful. We are delighted with tho tone of the leading Republican presses, throughout the country, in reviewing the victory, It is not claimed, by them, as the victory of any one distinct party, to the exclusion of all olhers. The New York Tribune concedes to the Americans of Pennsylva nia their full share of the honors of victory, while it awards to Col. Forney, and the Anti-Lecorapton Democracy of the Key stone Stale, the credit of true fellow la borers in the cause of freedom. The Pennsylvania delegation to the next Congress will stand twenty Amer can Republicans, three Anli-Lecompton Democrats, and two Lecomptonites, one of whom will have bis seat contested. What the majority in favor of the State ticket is, we are not officially advised ; it may be fifty or sixty thousand. Hon. J. Clancy Jones, tho President's pet, is defeated ; this is perhaps the rich est event of the season. If Biglor had the spirit of a man in his composition, he would resign his seat in the Senate of the United States, and no longer misrepresent his constituents but he won't do it. Next to the defeat of Jones, is that of Burns, of Ohio. The congressional ca- reor of this man Burns is faniilUr to our readers, and a more inglorious career no man has had in this State. It was a dark day to the Democracy of hisN district on which that msn was elected to Congress. Our State ticket is elected by a handsome majority; probably by twenty thousand or more ; enough for all practical purposes. We look upon these results as the tri umphs of liuth over error nd as a scathing rebuke to the National Administration fur the corruption, fraud and proscription which it has practiced upon the country ; and in view of this fact we rejoice,' and we will rejoice. It is no pleasure for ns to see politicians defeated for tho sake of their personal degradation, but men and their actions are so intimately connected that it is impossible to condemn the one without depressing the other. Our.conn scl to the Democracy of Joffcrson county, to tho State, and to the nation would bo, never again attempt to sustain a -corrupt Administration after it has departed from all the vital principles of its own plat form, merely because it is called "Demo cratic." It is one of those games that is destined never again to "win" in the nineteenth century. In a private corres pondence with a strong Pennsylvania Ad ministration politician, we were forcibly struck with the remark the oilier day, 'l know not," said he, ''where Buchanan's Administration i destined to rest, unless it be upon the success oi the Atlantic Ca ble." Now that the Cable is likely to prove a failure, we are strongly inclined to the opinion that Buchanan will be 'no where," or ba suspended in mid air."

Protestant, of tho 13th inst, published at Springfield, Ohio : Session of the Muskingum Confsroiice We enjoyed tho pi ivilcge of attending the. recent Session of the Muskingum Conferoiied. It was held at the villncre of New Salem, on the east edge of Fair- held county, and immediately ndjoining Perry county. The place being twelve miles from Lancaster, on ihu South, and some 15 or more miles from Newark, on the North, soma inconvenience was ex perienced in teaching there from tho near est railroad points. But this was well compensated by the generous hospitality of the citizens, who besides their atten tions to their guests, manifested a partic ular, interest in the proceedings of Con- fcfitice, many of them suspending all business to attend constantly upon its sessions. We were highly favored in having our entertainment with the kind family of Mr. S. Baker, near the M. P, Church, in connection with our old friend Br. Mar shall, the President. The Conference tion of this brother, bt a vote almost unan imous, for, a more ardent friend to tiio Church ind the cause of Christ holds not a place in crur ranks. The statement of the Secretary, Br. Earl, shows an encour afrini? increase, and indications of prospe rity ecuerally. he exhibit of the Con a o .... , ference Steward we think will also show that there has been great improvement in the support of the miniafry: Last, but not least, we have to Bay that the good brethren of the Muskingum Conference did better than at any previous t'ession for the Western Methodist Protestent, tho reccipis for the paper on the occasion amounting to some $275,00.

Extracts from Forney's Press, the N.'Y. Tribune, aud the Philadelphia North American. Yesterday, two years ago, says Forney, about the same hour in which we are now wrifinsr, the editor of the Press, then tho Chairman of the Democratic Slate Committee, eat down to address the Democratic Party of tha whole country upon the election of James Buchanan to the Presidency, and to congratulate the people upon the triumph of the great principal ot popular Sovreignty, wnnoui which Mr. Buchanan could not have been elevated to that high position. This was in October 50, bo it remembered, ana that result was regarded as deciding tne Presidential contest in November succee ding. Since that periods the same prin ciple has been kept consistently inview, by the editor of this journal, but interme diately, between then and now, the Pres ident of the United States has preferred to discard the great principle which made him President, and we bave been turown iy t a series of events familiar to the peo- de, into a hostile altitude to his' policy in this respect. Every effort which has been maue towarus conciliation anu luieruuun has been haughtily refused. An appeal was therefore taken to the peoplo ot l'enn sylvania. And now we sit down, as we did in 1856. after the October election, to chronicle tho triumph of the principle which elected James Buchanan to the Presidency. But we deeply regret to say that this time we are called upon to re joice over the triumph of the principle, and tho 'Jeteat ot tho man who was elect ed I'.pon it. At this writing it looks as if almost every Congressional Lecomptonite in Pennsylvania had been defeated ! So raucii for thoso who bave preferred the patronage and favor of the President to the confidence of the people. Thus much for the Exocutive, who has chosen to turn his back upon the immortal doctrine that the American people shall contro their own affairs in their own way, and who had dared to eroct, in every district in Pennsylvania, an official influence at war with the fundimcntal principles of the Constitution. Thus much for the new and startling idea that not the Fedora! Union, but that " the President must and shall bo sustained." But this result is not only attributablu to the uprising o the people against the betrayal ot their Representatives and the gross desertion of tho popular principle by the Chief Magistrate of the Kepublic ; tint it is at the same time a tribute to Ponsylvania feeling, and to that idea which is cherish ed by all onr. people That of protection to American industry, The New York Tribune says " Let us not misstate nor overstate this triumph. The Republicans have con tnbuted nobly to it, but thoy have not alone achieved it. The great body of the Americans have heartily co-operated with them and the elaborate attempts to draw off votes on " Straight American lick els in Philadelphia have had little effect, The Union for Free Territory, Pure Elections and Protection to Home Indus try, was too hearty and solid to bo shaken by the tricks of demagogues bought an owned by tho common adversary. But the Repulicans and Americans united could not have won so sweeping victory without the powerful aid of the Douglass Democracy. 1 hese laitlnul dev oloee of tho doclrino of Popular Sover eignty, organized and led by John W Forney, had resolved to punish the rec rents who devised and urged on in Lecompton fraud, and they have done effectually. Buchanan is routed in ii own State, and Federal subserviency Slavery Propagandism has received blow from which it will not soon recover, All Hail, Free Pennsylvania I" The Philadelphia North American, after indulging in warm congratulations over the general result has the following very proper paragraph, which we com mend to the attention of our inonds Mere Whutpvpr mnv bo the result of th ditr'a work, it cannot r-hanee our duty, A victorv. if won, can at 'bis stage only ha rmrtinl. and all the advaiitair?8 of it wi be lost by after negligence. A defeat even would be better now than any appaeoi success which should lead to future care lessness. The people must take the work in their own hands, and keek it not at periods of excitement only, but al ways. It is not to talk politics, common ly so called, that we should urge Ameri cans, but to study the subject relating to governnent and political economy j to give more breadth and scope to their in quiries ; to cause our young men to be educated in the principles of Republican Government and the rationale ot repub lican usages. -Mere vote counters and calculators of chances, are politicians on ly in the lowest sense of the word. J o become an adept in this sort of thing may suit office seekers, but should never con- lent the ambition of men who profess lo have sny stake in tho prosperity of the country beyond their own selfish ends, If the thoory of Republicanism is main tained, the United States should be tbe best government in the world. Perhaps it is : but we should be very sorry to think that the word best, in onr case, for-g bids further progress and improvement.

We were more indebted formerly to the Plen- Dotentiary of America than to our own for stipulations in favor of Christianity ; in the present treaties the Ministers, both of the United states and of Franco bave given particular attention to this subject, and we believe have opened the whole of China to the Missionary, and liavo ob tained full toleration and protection for native converts. Whether the empire is to be also opened to commerce is a question to which all facts at present known give an affumativo answer. " We observe that one Missionasy so ciety has Just appointed clergymen to Jritsu (.'olumbia, the farthest west ol America ; others have long been station ed, by several agencies at Shanghi, in the far east of Asia ; and belore long we may icar of a Missionary at nensm, and even at Pekin. The islands and coasts of the world are already in the occupa tion of Christendom ; and the interior of its continents, even Africa and the em pire of China, are becoming accessible. Whatever the instrumentalities may bo, whether the enterprise of a Livingstone, or the sword of the Western Powers, we must recognize in these events tho devel opement of some great Providential pur pose in which every nation and tribe ot mankind are interested." Protestantism in France. Notwith standing the Emperor of the French has entered into an alliance with the priest- party of Franco, to endeavor to crush out Protestantism, as recently developed in the outrage at Maubeuge, on the Belgian frontier, one of the wealthiest, most en lightened and populous departments in France, where a congregation of the Re formed Church were intercepted, and the pastor wilh several of his flock were thrown into prison. The Debats, an able French journal, with polished irony, notwithstanding the people are bound in the iron rule of military power, Bavs ' that while the Romanists have liberty to work miracles, the non-coulorinists Bhould bo allowed to circulate the scrip hires and worship God togother. Tho Protestasts pretend to no miracle but one the moral miracle of the conversion of unbelievers, and even of 'Cauholics,' by the word of truth applied by the divine Spirit." We quote from tho same out-spoken paper the following : At heavy expense, the Protsstanls disseminate tho Bible over the whole world ; and, in their character of Frenchmen a character which has not yet been denied to them since 1789, they now rejoice as much as the Catholics that the cannon of France has opened China to their Missionaries and to their distributors of the Bible. Well ! what tho new treaty gives them the right lo do in China is legally forbidden them in the department of the Sarthe ! Is there no hope of imposing upon the Perfect a treaty equivalent to lhat concecded by the ''Brother of the Sun and Moon?" The Rov. Isaac Keeling, in his admi rable Conference memoir of Dr. Bunting, published in the minutes of the Hull con ference, 1858, gives the following graphic portrait of this great man : The most precious gifts of nature, rich and copious endowments of heavenly grace, and a fnvoraclo conjunction of providential circumstances, improved with exraorumary hitbiulness and diligence, made him during more than half a centu rv. whether in or out ot ollice, 'more honorable than his brethren.' in a degree at once wonderlul and indubitable. A singlilkrl well balanced mind, o vast canacitv connected with great an ergy of character -gave him elemonts of personal influence, which from almost any starling point would have sec:ueu a sue ccssful course There has rarely been so obvious anu impressive an instance of the genera fact, lhat while ordinary men are wait ing for complete and improbable facilities, and allowing' real opportunities to -pass unpurcieved till the critical moment for using them has gone by he who is alike gifted with clear practical judgment and unfaltering resolution discerns with a vig ilant eye and grasps wilh a strong hand, the possibilities of his actual situation ; and accordingly strives, perseveres and prevails." Tho memoir closes with the subjoined beautiful and impressive passage : ' v " That such massive grandeur of char acter should, through bo long a course, have been combined with a prevading spirituality of mind, and with the sim plicity aiiofhumility of one who walked with God while living among men, is to be ascribed lo the same mighty grace which formed and sustained the majestic characters of sacred antiquity ; the holy Patriarchs, Prophets and ApoBtlcs, the venerable Judges and glorious Kings, of God's' ancient people. Like them, he whose departure we mourn did not escape deep domestic sorrows, personal afflic tions, calumnious revihngs of unreasona ble men, and public cares and toils which severely (asked oven his gigantic powers. And like some of them, after labors, conflicts and Victories, he was permitted lo pass the evening of lifu in comparative tranquility and reppso ; and at length fin ished his courso .'in a good old age, full of days,' in 'the peace which paBseth un derstanding,' and 'the honor that cometh cf God ' und hold in such veneration by the best of men of his lime; as may re mind us of the Priest' Jehoiada, of whom it is recorded ibat 'they buried him in tho city of David among the kings, be : (.-.' -j -ij ;'. .. , cause he had done good in Israel, both toward God and toward his house.'" Pitts. Chris Advocate. -; Great Britain and France. By the latest returns of the populations of Great Britain and France, it appears that tbe proportion of children and young per. sons to audults is abont one-seventh more ' in Great. Britain than in France The inferences are that marriages are - more fruitful than in France; that the popula-' tion in Great Britain is in t more rapid state of advance the per contage of per sons living under fifteen being thirty-four in Great Britain, and thirty in France.- The total number of audult males in the United Kingdom is 510,000 , in France. 7,250,000.. : .. Jewish Longevity. The modern Is raelites, we are informed by Herr Gatters, have a longer life of it than modern Christians. During twenty-three years ' M. Gatters has been gathering statistics on this head in Wieselburg; and he finds that as infants, as boys, and as adults, Jews live longer than Christians. Hs attributes their longer life to some pecu liarity of race; but it is probable that money has something to do with it. A pauper Jew is an unheard of thing, and poverty and short life have a well-known, relation. Medical Times. The proposed monument lo Washing ton, in Philadelphia, is to consist of a collossal equestrian statue of bronze. Washington will be represented in his continental uniform, with his right hand outstretched, as though in the act of giv ing an order lo his aids. The horse is to be represented as pawing the ground with his hoof. The horse will rest upon a massive granite pedestal, which wilt be supported by rough rocks. From the base of the pedestal there will be jets of water at intervals, which will pour down ovet the rocks, and form an encircling ake, bix lect in depth, which will make a handsome ornament, and, at the same time protect the monument from the dan ger of being injured by mischievous per sons. This lako will be surrounded by a massive iron railing, comporting in stylo with the . monument. Among the rocks will be aquatic plants, and there will be an arrangement by which the names of the Revolutionary generals will be oppropriately placed! upon the granite pedestal. The work ili be forty feet in height. BUSINESS NOTICES. Jcy When-lhe American Colonies shook off the Government of Great Britain, and adopted a liberal form of National policy, the civilized world enquired, " what has been the cause of litis great revolution ?" The answer was, "Taxation without Re presentation ;" and the world was satis fied with the answer, , When the inquiry is now made, "why is it, that during the great pressure of the times, when one large firm after another is being driven to the wall, Frohman & Co., still continue to do a flourishing business in their ex tensive Clothing Establishment on the corner of 3d and Market Streets ?" The answer is, They have a large and well selected stock of Ready Made Clothing, and sell remarkably choap." The answer is satisfactory, aftd all flock to Frohman's with the exception of those who are so unwise as to stay away make their pur chases, and return hgme satisfied with their bargains. The peoplo are deliglilod, Frohman feels comfortable, and everything moves on harmoniously. Removal. M. M.
